  • Just because you can't get in to see a dr. doesn't mean you can't call and consult with someone. I would recommend doing that. I would think any irritation involving your "hoohoo" could be serious during pregnancy, so definitely talk to a professional. I don't know but this might be helpful...I understand that sperm is ...I think it's a base, while vaginal fluids are acidic...or the opposite...whichever.. so pH could be affected. :,,midwife_3pvc,00.html

  • Check with your doctor first, but I was told to just use Monostat.

  • Some woman are actually allergic to certain peoples cum.... sounds crazy i know but it is very true. it might just be because you are pregnant and more sensitive..... or if you recently shaved it could have just irritated the area.... there are many possibilites.... but next time if it happens again I would suggest just pulling out til you see what the doctor has to say.

  • I got the same thing alot when I was pregnant too. The doctor said that it was a yeast infection and said monistat is safe. Whatever you do try to avoid itching will only make it worse. Try taking a cool shower to relieve the itching. Or, I used to sit in my robe and put an ice pack (wrapped in washcloth) down there. The cold relieves the itching as well.
