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.
