TMI TMI TMI but it hurts

The very front of my vagina area is red, swollen and itchy. No sex for about a week and no other reason I can think of. I'm 30 weeks and embarrassed. I have an appt on Thursday but was wondering if this sounds familiar?

Sorry! I wouldn't ask if it wasn't sooo annoying and painful.

Might be varicose veins... I have heard they can show up from all the swelling! Good luck. :/

Don't know what you mean by front but maybe its a yeast infection?

 More than likely a yeast infection. Incredibly common during pregnancy even if you aren't having a lot of sex. Changes in pH balance will instantly cause you to get a yeast infection. Soap can do this to you. Monostat is great, works fast but it's pretty messy. Anitbiotics your doctor give you are not messy but also don't work as fast. Choice is yours, but it's best to see your OB about it just to make sure. I promise you don't have anything that your doctor hasn't seen before!

Could be a yeast infection or even bacterial vaginosis. The second one is basically caused by an imbalance in ph. Happens to me often and totally sucks!
