zz1991,

It could be just engorged veins in the area. It is not uncommon for pregnant women to develop varices in the veins on the vulva and labia.

But, the only way to know for sure would be to have your OB/GYN take a look at the lesions.

Good luck.

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.The pregnancy hormone progesterone weakens the walls of the veins and the increased blood supply to the area swells them. It could also be because the the weight of expanding uterus is putting pressure downwards.



Take care
