Embarrassing Question...vaginal dryness during pregnancy?

This is my 4th pregnancy and I can remember that I was never "dry" before like this. Usually I was needing to wear a panyliner because of the amount of clear healthy discharge but this time I have been dry for most of this pregnancy, which is quite uncomfortable. Is this normal in pregnancy at all?

I have never had it happen. Ussually pregnancy is when the flood gates open (TMI). Sould you maybe have a yeast infection? Sometimes that can make me feel a little dry. Hugs.

Yep, it can be normal to be really dry or really "wet". I too usually do NOT have a problem with being dry, but when I'm pregnant I always do, especially late in the pregnancy.

Yes, it is normal, either dry or very wet feeling. A little coconut oil can help if the dryness is uncomfortable.

I am so glad you posted this! I was just thinking last night that with dd I was always much more *wet* than normal and this time I feel like a desert and I was wondering if that meant anything or not.

Maybe. Or you could have a BV infection, which I got nearly every pregnancy. I didn't have any "normal" symptoms. I just noticed that what little discharge there was, was watery and s*x was painful/uncomfortable. As soon as the infection was treated I felt better.

Thank you all for posting, I'm going to eat plain yogurt 2x a day and I'm ordering MultiGyn Gel for some relief!
