Very unlikely: Initial genital herpes can cause inguinal node inflammation, but rarely a single node. Almost always bilateral and preceded by obvious genital lesions etc. Isolated inguinal lymphadenopathy is usually due to inflammation of the leg on the same side, often as minor as an ingrown toenail. Cat scratch disease is a common cause in cat owners. See doctor if painful, persists 2+ days, or if any fever.

A 43-year-old member asked:

Should I be concerned that my skin has been itching throughout my pregnancy?

3 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Erin Alward

Yes: Most of the time this is related to dry skin in pregnancy, but there is a condition called cholestasis of pregnancy that could be the culprit. Cholestasis can be very concerning and can cause problems for the baby. Itchiness without a rash in pregnancy needs to be evaluated by your doctor. There's a lab test for bile acids that can be done to look for cholestasis.

Yes: Most of the reasons are not serious such as dry skin or pupps. But a more serious but rare cause is cholestasis of pregnancy. There is no rash and the hands and feet itch the most.

Is it normal to have pelvic pain in the 2nd trimester?

Yes: I hate to call pain "normal" but it is very common. If the pain is accompanied by vaginal bleeding, you should contact your doctor right away. Some causes of pelvic pain are treatable: such as bladder infections, low back pain, etc. Some seem to be related to pelvic pressure due to vascular congestion or stretching of scar tissue (adhesions) from previous surgeries.

Get tested : Yeast infections & bacterial vaginosis are nonsexually transmitted vaginal infections which are common in pregnancy. If you are having vaginal discharge you should should be tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia & trichomoniasis. Some women will have excess vaginal discharge without having an infection from the hormonal changes of pregnancy. Many also leak small amounts of urine during pregnancy.

Circular muscle: The lining of the vagina(epithelium) is surrounded by circular muscle that can contract around objects and a potential space that can expand as well. Expansion projects include childbirth, sex and tampon placement.
