Don't buy ones with too much scent or other additives as they may be irritating to that sensitive skin.

May pregnant women experience more vaginal discharge than normal.
Many also leak a small amount of urine. A panty-line is fine.

You can wear panty-liners in pregnancy as long as they have a cotton crotch.
This will allow air to penetrate allowing for evaporation keeping you cooler.

There is usually an increase in the normal discharge during pregnancy.
It is fine to use panty-liners, even every day. If your discharge is colored or has an odor, you will want to tell your doctor about it.

You can wear them but sometimes they actually trap moisture and cause more irritation.
Try changing your cotton underwear frequently and applying petroleum jelly to your labia.
