User avatar Hello,
There are varieties of vaginitis that can occur due to either yeast or bacteria overgrowth. Yeast is particularly common in pregnant women. It can be treated with over-the-counter antifungal ointment. If that doesn't clear it up when used exactly as directed, you may need to see a doctor for an antibiotic. Simple irritation from friction can also cause discomfort and could be related to a dry vagina during - hormonal changes are the culprits here and extra lubrication may help.

These treatments are safe in pregnancy.

Best wishes.
