Is it normal for the walls of your vagina to swell up or enlarge a few days before your period begins?

Dear Reader; It may be normal for you. Let me explain some more.

The wall of the uterus contains cells that are able to take on

large amounts of fluids including blood in anticipation of

pregnancy. The surface layer of these cells are discarded during

each period. Some times these cells can get loose and start growing

in other parts of the reproductive organs and in rare cases other

parts of the body. This is called endometriosis. This can be a

small bother once you know what it is or a greater problem. There

is some generational predispostion toward endometriosis so let your

mother and children know if your doctor confirms this to be what

you have. Do check with your doctor to confirm what you have or

don't have. Dwight
