Yes: The hormone changes and the higher yeast levels of pregnancy cause these symptoms. Try applying KY jelly.

Vaginal soreness: Vigorous sex during pregnancy can cause vaginal soreness. Best to have more gentle sexual activity. If the vagina remains sore continually then you should consult your physician.
