It sounds like the hpv virus i had ended up getting it and my doc said it was nothing to really worry about that most people who are sexualy active havr it but it prolly wont go aeay until after you have the baby because your amune system is vary different.

Thats not an STD !!! Sounds more like a yeast infection, which is common for pregnant women, & sex just irritates it.. Trust me i was worried just like you until the doctor told me what it was. Just get some cream for yeast infections & it will clear up in no time !!

A yeast infection does not have blisters. I'm sorry to say it sounds like an std, possibly genital warts, they show up pretty quick. Go in as soon as possible cause you won't know without a diagnosis. Most stds they can treat quickly. I unknowingly had chlamydia til I found out I was pregnant and that I had it. Only took a week to cure. If it is an std and you don't get it cured it will most likely pass on to your baby. Get it taken care of ASAP! Good luck.

Its not yeast . Yeast doesn't have blisters , I know that for a fact because I've suffered from many yeast infections lasting 3 months+ sounds like either genital warts (which can be lazered off) or herpes which can be itchy in the beginning stages (no cure for that !)  Get checked out && find out where your man has been . Best of luck .

THATS NOT AN STD !!! If its a yeast infection and shes scratching it, (especially after sex) it could get very very irritated and swollen & cause that !!! Ive had that problem with both of my pregnancies & never in my life have I had an STD !! @armywife93 But i do agree she should go to her doctor so they can confirm what im tellin her

Itching does not mean an std, no. But blisters?? How does that sound like a yeast infection?? Multiple spots and blisters on your vagina is definitely something to take seriously. Don't just brush it off.

"Blisters are not very common for vaginal yeast whereas they are part of the normal symptoms of genital herpes. Genital herpes blisters usually turn into sores, then crusts and back into healthy skin within a few days. Blisters and crusts are not usually associated with candida albicans infections.

During a herpes infection, flu like symptoms may appear 24 to 48 hours before any itchiness is perceived especially during the first episode. This is not the case with vaginal yeast infections."    <---- found this on difference between yeast infection and herpes. hope this helps! please go in quick hun. Wishing the best for you and baby.
