Q&A: Vaginal changes during pregnancy
I am 22 years old, 19 weeks pregnant for the first time. I want to know if it is normal for my vagina to be changing at this stage. It seems to have a rought texture but its not itchy.

Tina Otte answers:

It is normal for the vagina to change- in colour and sensitivity and as long as you have no burning or itching in that area, i would not worry. It is difficult to comment without observation, so I urge you to speak to your midwife or doctor about your concerns as soon as possible.
