The Vagina Feels Wide When Squatting At 6 Months Of Pregnancy?
Pgi, sya alikha, 31 years old, when I was pregnant with my third child, my pregnancy was 6 months, what I wanted to ask, why was it when I was squatting (BAK / BAB) my vagina widened as if it was about to fall, it tense my muscles , it’s hard to squat for too long, is it a problem because in two previous pregnancies it wasn’t like this?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
The condition of the vagina feels wider when squatting can be caused by an increase in intra-abdominal pressure to the rectum and vagina, in addition to the increased pressure due to being pregnant, as well as the influence of gravity, especially when squatting. If you feel the burden increasing in the vaginal area, the muscles feel more tense, then that is something that can occur due to physiological changes when you are pregnant.
An active fetus can be a good sign for fetal growth and development, it is necessary to be alert if there is a change in the pattern of fetal activity (eg the fetus is not actively moving or kicking which is generally felt), it is advisable to immediately consult a gynecologist or the nearest hospital related to the examination and further management regarding your condition.
If there is a vaginal discharge that smells, turns reddish, greenish, accompanied by fever and pain in the vaginal area, or when a squat is found, irresistible water accompanied by mucus and blood, or bleeding coming out of the birth canal, it is recommended to consult your obstetrician for further examination and management.
Not recommended for frequent squatting during pregnancy, not recommended for heavy activities or lifting heavy loads during pregnancy, it is not advisable to take self-medication without consulting a doctor, it is advisable to carry out regular control of the obstetrician in accordance with the pregnancy control schedule, maintain eating patterns and enough rest.
