Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

By 36 weeks 4 days I assume you mean into pregnancy. If that is the case, ten during this time vagina is very sensitive and highly fed with blood vessels which can cause easy congestion. It is good that infection and STD are ruled out.

Keep monitoring your baby’s movements. Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.
