Expert Q & A Answers About pregnancy

Since getting pregnant, I have vaginal swelling after sex...should I be worried?

I'm 3 months pregnant. Ever since I got pregnant, I get swollen "down there" after sex. What could be the problem?

I’ve been having unprotected sex, but my partner pulls out before he comes...could I still get pregnant?

I'm 32 and I should have known better. I recently started dating a guy, and we ended up having sex without a condom. My period comes every 29 days and last for about five days of blood and another seven days of on-and-off brown discharge. We had sex nine days after my period started and he pulled out of me before he came. Six days later, we had sex again...this time with a condom, but he first was inside me without a condom. But when he came, he had the condom on. We had sex three more times that night...all without a condom, but every time he pulled out. What do you think are my chance of getting pregnant? I haven't been on birth control in two years.

My vagina is itchy and white with some kind of mucous. What should I do?

About three days ago, my private parts started to get very itchy. When I looked at my vagina with a hand mirror, it looked like the opening to my vagina was white with some kind of mucous. What should I do? Will this influence my relationship with my husband of two years? Will I still be able to get pregnant?
