During pregnancy, many women feel pressure, or heaviness, around the vagina. This is normal and can happen in the first, second, or third trimester. A pregnant woman's uterus will expand from the size of an orange to the size of a watermelon or larger. Her body will not only need to provide space and nutrients for a new person to develop but will have to produce an entirely new organ in the form of a placenta. With so many changes happening, it is not surprising that many women notice sudden and unusual shifts in how their bodies feel. Vaginal, pelvic, or lower abdomen pressure is common in all three trimesters of pregnancy.

Vaginal pressure during pregnancy: Causes and relief
Join now to personalize. Why does my vagina feel sore? I'm about 22 weeks along now and for the past couple of weeks my vagina has felt sore. It's not constantly sore and I only notice it when I wipe. It just feels really sensitive and sore like I got kicked or something. I didn't have any infections or anything the last time I was at the doctor and I forgot to ask her about it. Any explanations?.

Pregnancy is one of the few experiences that sounds at once beautiful and alarming. On the one hand, the awe-inspiring physical changes may reinforce how magical it is to be pregnant. But there are also many times when pregnancy isn't exactly a picnic. Sure, it can be great, but most women don't feel like they're straight out of "glowy pregnant lady" central casting for all nine months. The more open everyone is about how frustrating pregnancy can be, the better off we'll all be.
