With your body changing at an alarming rate, it can be difficult to keep up with what's considered normal and abnormal during a pregnancy. I mean, the idea that you're growing another human inside of you is pretty incredible, and your body is obviously going to do some pretty impressive things in order to accommodate its new occupant. But when it comes to changes, there are a few you'll want to keep your eye on — especially when it comes to your vagina, because there are definitely pregnancy vagina red flags to watch out for.

Reading about symptoms and irregularities can only get you so far in a pregnancy. That being said, if you're experiencing any of the following symptoms, or other irregular symptoms, you should reach our to a medical professional as soon as possible. Because your health — and the health of your baby — may depend on it.
