Hello doctor I feel a little swollen in my vulva when I get up in the morning during my late pregnancy 316, is it normal?I don't know if it is caused by pressure as the baby gets bigger and bigger no bleeding fetal heartbeat 120+ to 130+ sometimes 140+ please do I need to treat the swelling?
It is not necessary to carry out medication, but it is indeed the fetus that causes pressure on the pelvis after late pregnancy, which leads to local obstruction of venous return.You should wash with warm water, keep your vulva clean, wear cotton comfortable and breathable pants, and eat lightly.
If you are more than 31 weeks pregnant and have swollen vulva, it is important to see if there is any swelling in other areas?If leg swelling is also present, it is recommended to have a routine urine test to see if there is abnormal urine protein, and also to see if there is vaginitis, which can also be uncomfortable.
In late pregnancy, swelling of the pubic area is a normal physiological phenomenon.There are certain local pressure symptoms, which do not need to be treated if they are not very obvious.If there are no abnormalities, no treatment is needed.
Based solely on the description of the situation, first of all, it should be explained to you that most of the swelling of the vulva that occurs in the late stages of pregnancy is normal.
It is only relatively severe in some people, and the cause of this condition is usually related to uterine pressure, causing edema in the vulva, and in a few cases it may also be related to vulvar varicose veins.In addition, it is necessary to exclude the presence of gynecological inflammation.
