Vagina swelling
When I have sex...occasionally my inner vagina lips will swell up.The left one does more then the right one and it doesnt go away for about a day or so. Me and my partner do not use condoms or any kinda of protection.(We been together for 3 years) So I was wondering wat could be the cause of this? And how can I prevent it from happening agian?

I would stop any lubricants if you are using any. Sounds like it may be a reaction, or possibly related to blood flow changes in the area during intercourse. This is not a usual complaint, so I recommend that you see your gyne provider the next time it develops...

I have had a yeast infection in the past, but nothing recent. My boyfriend and I had sex using a condom, and afterwards I became a little sore. The next day I was having the same symptoms of discharge but in large amounts that I had never seen before. I took a shower, dried off properly and the discharge stopped completely. Then I found that I was getting an extreme burning sensation. Come to find out my vagina is completely swollen now, and it's really hard to walk or do anything for that matter. I tried buying vagisil which helped a little bit, but i dont know if i should see a doctor or not.
Can you help?
