Is it normal to be more sensitive after sex during pregnancy? 

hi. I am asking a very personal question. Is it normal to be more sensitve down in the vaginal area after having sex during pregnancy? I find after having sex with my partner it is sore afterwards, sort of stings and aches for a while then goes away. We use lubricant but seems to make no difference. Is this normal or is something up? thanks

Answer: Hi,
Yes it can be a bit different during pregnancy usually from the changes in your hormone levels. If the sensation continues you may need ot have a check up to see if you have a thrush infection (which is also very common in pregnancy).
Best wishes,
Alex
