Hi. I am 19 years old, pregnant female. (25 weeks pregnant) and I am sexually active. I have been experiencing a feminine issue for the past 3 or 4 days. The area around my clitoris is very swollen and feels chafed, and sore to the touch. The skin is also a whitish color rather than pink like normal. Occasionally it is itchy. I asked my doctor 2 days ago and she took a look and decide to run some bloodwork on me. Other than that she really didn't give me much info other than to stop washing myself down there with body wash. So I bought some ph balanced feminine wash and some wipes that are supposed to stop the itch and burn. They have helped minimally in the past two days. Also, when I urinate, at the very end when my bladder is emptied I feel a throbbing pain in my vagina/clitoris. I need some answers. Please help.

Def follow-up with your doctor - sounds like an infection.

I had my last period on June 3. July 3 I waited nothing happen! I am now 16 days over due and every test has been negative. I haven't taken one since Thursday which was 14 days over due. I don't know if I test too early or what. I have been cramping like it was going to start but nothing has happened. Any advice?? I'm going to make a doctors appointment on Monday for a blood test.
