Puffy/Swollen vagina?? (tmi) ;-)


hiya
Sorry about this thread but i am a little concerned..
This is my first pregnancy and i am in the 29th week. Yesterday i noticed that my vagina has started to swell...and today its uncomfy to walk as it rubs on innner thighs lol sorry tmi i know but is this normal?????? It seems weird..puffy and not the right size- not nice when it comes to getting intimate with hubby :-)

I have read on some forums that its the increased blood flow and others have said it could be start of yeast infection?

I am on antibiotics at the mo (cefalexin) for sinusitus an am worried that the tabs could cause a yeast infection..although wouldnt i have a discharge with that?
Hope someone can help...
thanks ladies

it can be due to increase in blood flow to area or as you say to do with anti-biotics. i had thrush few weeks back - had no itching or discharge etc, only found via an internal at hospital.

if its hurting to walk you need speak to MW.

My 'ladybits' seem swollen now but they aren't painful or anything so I am just putting it down to increased blood supply and pressure from baby!

I had this in late second tri/early third tri (I can't actually remember when ). I went to the hospital to get it checked out and they couldn't figure out what it was. Quite frustrating, but after a week or so it went away on it's own. I was also on anti-biotics (amoxicillan) at the time, which may have caused it. I would go get it checked out, but odds are its nothing serious.

That happened to me at 30 weeks (I think it was then), when I was on Keflex (antibiotics) for a boil, lol. Umm, anyway, my labia and inner labia were all swollen and sticking out and it hurt a great deal to walk, and as it was sticking out more than usual, it got kind of dried out too. I didn't notice any new/different discharge or smells, but I did have a bit of an itch... ended up in the hospital a day or two later with early preterm labor! Luckily they stopped it. I have no idea why it was swollen. Perhaps the antibiotics did it, but it was all better after my hospital visit, which coincidentally was the day before I took my last antibiotics.

But I do know of someone else who said that they were swollen down there and figured it was a yeast infection and she ended up in preterm labor as well.

I've had this for a few weeks now and when I told MW she just said 'well, you'll be surprised what swells up when you're pregnant'! So I'm guessing it's nothing to worry about haha!

Yeah I had this on & off for past 2 wks now. MW sed its the pressure of baby, gives u heavy feeling, like ur vagina & inner thighs are bruised in some way, a little swollen. Nothing 2 worry about & sed nothing u can take, its one of the lovely things about being pregnant!
