Vaginal pain

im 15 weeks pregnant. My husband and I had sex the other night and since then I have been in pain. It feels like I had really rough sex while I was dry. I also wear thongs everyday. What could this be? Does it have anything to do with my choice of undies?

  • Yes! You shouldn't be wearing thongs often while pregnant. You're immune compromised, and you greatly increase your risk of vaginal infection by wearing a thong daily. Switch to cotton bikini briefs for the next 25 weeks.

  • yup the briefs might not be sexy but an infection its dangerous to you and your baby.

  • Thongs ? are they really comfortable??i could not wear them.Cotton is king!! Sex during pregnancy was never comfortable for me,I carried low.But there is nothing wrong with it at all.

  • Have to agree with the first response.

  • I prefer thongs myself most of the time but after being pregnant a few weeks it was just unbearable. I was dry and raw all the time. Granted I didn't know I was pregnant at the time. I find that the cotton boy shorts are more comfortable for me while pregnant because they sit similarly to a thong but give the necessary coverage and support.
