  • The blood flow increase during the last trimester to prepare for birth so it is just more sensitive.
  • It sounds as though she is suffering from vaginismus, a condition in which the muscles of the vagina go into spasm when entry is attempted.
  • Everything in the pelvic area is under pressure, what with there being another human squashed in there and everything. All passages are a bit compressed, which is one reason why constipation is such a common problem in late pregnancy and why the bladder needs to be emptied with such frequency. The vagina is affected too. It will be physically tighter simply because there isn't as much room as there was before, and it will be more sensitive as the blood vessels and nerve endings are all under stress. Don't worry though, after childbirth, things being too tight down there will definitely not be a problem. Think throwing a frankfurter up Pennsylvania Avenue...
