Question stretch marks in an unusual place question

Yesterday as I was shaving I noticed some marks around the vagina area. At first I thought it was just another rash but as I looked more closely I knew it wasn't. They are purplish marks resembling stretch marks. Is it possible to actually have stretch marks right there?

Yep..unfortunantly it's possible. I have them too! I was tiny before being pregnancy and gained A LOT of weight during. It surprised me too..I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that has them there!

I have a couple down there. This is my first child but when I was 12 I was really sick and had to take steroids. They made me gain 40lbs in 2 weeks and I got som e stretch marks down there and on the front of my stomach. I'm not too worried about them when I'm pregnant because I've been dealing with them since then. One thing to look out for though....every once and a while after I shave I get a really nasty ingrown hair in the ones there. I don't thinks there is really anything much you can do about it, but I pluck it whenever I see that hair and it seems to get thinner and cause less of a problem. Wow! I can hardly wait for hemmoroids!!!

I am glad I am not the only one who had/has this problem. Mine occured with my first pregnancy. I still have them ( I am 14 weeks pg with my 3rd baby). They are not pretty. I do not like them either, they look gross. The important thing to me is that my husband has never said a word about it!! I would die if he did http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif
