Hi im 19 and something has changed about my vagina. Do they change at all during periods or pregnancy. Im really nervous that I might be pregnant because I slept with my boyfriend like a week ago. But I don't know. PLEASE HELP!

User avatar Hi Paranoidteen,

There are some changes in the vagina that occur with pregnancy but most are not noticeable directly. Without a bit more detail I'm not able to tell you much more.

If you are concerned about pregnancy, many home pregnancy tests are accurate during the 4th week after your last period, some are reported accurate several days before your next period would be due. If the test during the 4th week is negative and your period is delayed, a repeat test should be performed during the 5th week. At this point urine pregnancy tests are almost 100% accurate (not exactly 100% but close).

Best wishes.
