Normal: With pregnancy, you will have higher Progesterone levels and water retention. These cause a dryer vaginal mucosa and increased edema. Both of these together can cause a dry, burning sensation due to less natural lubrication. Try olive oil or any vegetable oil. Dont use KY jelly or any jelly as they are salt based and can dry you out more in the long run.
