hi iam 35 weeks pg, and for quite some time have been experiencing a burning pain and irritation on intercourse, it seems to be on penetration, have used ky jelly(no help) and have had various tests for thrush, etc all came back clear, now im worried that when i deliver and push its going to be even more painful! some advice or reassurance would be great!

Unfortunately I can't help, but have been having the same problem, so will be interested to hear responses...

I have this too. After being unsuccessfully treated for thrush etc, my GP sent me to a gynae with a dermatology background who diagnosed me as having 'gestational vulval eczema'. Aqueous cream helps, as does 1% hydrocortisone cream (must be prescribed) for when its really bad. Hope this helps...

oops, forgot to say, Boots does a big tub of Aqueous Cream BP for approx £2.80 - they keep it behind the counter, so just ask at the pharmacy counter.

Sorry no advice - just a comment - You are having SEX at 35 weeks pg!?!?!?!
I am 36 weeks and my DH says he needs David attenborough to help him get anywhere near!!!!

I had that too, I gave up sex because every time it felt like my waters had gone or something.

I had a home birth and it wasn't that bad so don't worry, it's pretty much normal.

i have a similar problem as sex has always been quite painful even before i was pg. now im 41 wks and its still uncomfortable sometimes and i suffer with stinging and irritation afterwards for a little while. i don't really have any advise as i just put up with it really and since ive been pg we haven't had sex as much anyway. i am worried like you that pushing this baby out is gonna hurt like hell, but im sure we will be fine and im going for induction on monday so ill let you know how the birth goes and how it felt if you wanna know that is.

B.V? Sorry, a bit thick - what's bv?

I cant remember the exact name. its classed as an s.t.i.. btu is not sexually transmitted. it occurs in your body due to changes such as your periods. I will try to find out more info 2 let you know. Oh and your not thick i had never hard of it until i was told i had it last october and i still had to find out info of what it is and does.

i have this super itchy all on lips that i can't figure out, either. lots of sticky discharge . pap smear came back clear for everything too. guess i just have to brave the gp. told a mw, and she just said 'oh yeah'. i think she was more concerned cos i spent my whole session crying. stupid pregnancy hormones.
