Early Pregnancy Symptoms: Vaginal Changes
Vaginal changes in early pregnancy are very common. In fact, around two weeks after your period was due, your vagina, labia and cervix become a blueish or purplish colour. Although you may not notice this, on examination, if deemed necessary, your GP will most likely notice this particular sign of pregnancy.
Known as Chadwick's sign, the colour change is simply the result of an increased blood flow in the area.
Your cervix and vagina will also be softer than normal (Goodell's sign) and you may notice that you have a thick, creamy coloured discharge. This is all perfectly normal and to be expected.
However, If you experience any itching, pain, bleeding or have a strong smelling discharge you should see your doctor as you may be suffering from thrush or another pregnancy-related problem which needs to be checked out.
