Call the dr that sounds painful.... They will prob be able to give you a cream to take the pain away..... I would imagine it to be some kind of infection.... I tend to get bladder infections after swimming at some beaches

Its normal for your vaginal area to get swollen down there during the end of pregnancy. It could have been caused by irritation from the salt in the water.

When I hit 28 weeks with my 2nd baby, they put me on progesterone suppositories, and that happened to me after a few weeks of being on it. My doctor said it can be caused by increased estrogen and progesterone levels.

I had that with my yeast infections but I would visit the doc to make sure. They got really swollen before the itchiness...the moisture from swimming could have caused it...maybe if you sat in your suit for a long time when it was damp. The beach water can also cause some pretty unhealthy bacteria...I've learned that after having 2 uti's as well!

Swelling is totally normal, as gross as it sounds some people call it "cheeseburger crotch".The vulva can actually swell up to the size of a softball.  The swelling itself is usually not painful, but can be uncomfortable (when rubbing against undies, ect) BUT if you are having pains you can actually get varicose veins down there, so it is worth a mention to your dr. I'm pretty sure they can do something to help with that! Good luck, if I don't lose this topic (I'm on phone hard to find posts) I'll try to look up the name of the webpage I found this info on!
