  • You probably have a yeast infection. They are more common during pregnancy. Just call your doc. They may just have you get an over the counter treatment.

  • Probably a yeast infection from your body's crazy hormones. They will treat it like they would any other yeast infection....monistat or something similar(:

  • the most common reason for vaginal itching during pregnancy are the normal changes to the vaginal PH level which can cause topical irritations. The things that helped me most were keeping the area very clean and wearing a cotton nightgown to bed and not wearing underpants. It helped air flow get to that area and it went away before too long.

  • It sounds like a yeast infection. I did not get them while pregnant but I know it can happen often then.

  • Sounds like a yeast infection to me too! Always call your OB/GYN before going out and buying anything to treat it though. They may want to call you in a prescription instead of the over the counter stuff.
