yep i'd definitely put ice on it that was the first thing that came to mind seeing that it doesnt hurt its probably swollen because you guys were a little rough if that doesnt help the swelling try not to irritate it as much as possible were cotton panties and skirt were you can get a little air or you can rest by sitting without it being rubbed.

Goodluck i dont think its no biggy it should be back to normal any day now,however if it doesnt you can see a pharmacist for additional stuff but nevertheless you'll be ok

This is really similar to what is happening to me right now.

I'm only 17, and have only been this physical with my boyfriend for about 3 months now. But my guy and I got really heated last night, and he fingered me and it was kind of rough (although I didn't get as wet as normal). We normally do get pretty passionate, so it's not like being rough is anything different than what I'm used to. However, I've never been in this much pain afterwards. It's been about 17 hours since he fingered me, and I wasnt feeling any pain when I went to sleep last night; it was when I woke up (this afternoon) that I felt this pain. And it's lasted all day long.

The right lip, right next to the hole (my labia I think is what it's called?) is very swollen. It's red and it hurts. I was worried at first that maybe he accidentally scratched me and that THAT was the reason why I was in pain, but it doesn't hurt when I pee at all...it's just tender. I'm very sore and I took a warm bath this afternoon, thinking it would make me feel better. It felt nice while I was in the bath, but after I got out, the soreness still hasn't lessened. So I took some ibuprofen a couple of hours ago and have been icing it, and hopefully that will help? It still doesn't look any better however, becuase it's still very puffy and red (not to mention VERY sore). It's awkward because I have to walk funny to avoid pain (since its swollen, it will be rubbed while I'm walking by the other lip or my upper inner thighs, and will hurt more).

I don't know what else to do, but from everything I'm reading, I'm hoping that the reason is just because I wasn't as wet as I normally am when we're hooking up--that the reason for this swollen-ness, redness, and tenderness is because of being rubbed while dry last night...

I've had post soreness before, but never to this extent. If anyone has any added advice to make this go away, please tell asap

This has happened to me a few times...
Give it a couple of days and the swelling will go down.
Maybe a bit of Vaseline or something similiar will help in the meantime...to stop it rubbing.
If I were you though, I really wouldn't worry about it.

I was with this guy and he was fingering me about 2 weeks  ago. Everything was fine but NOW my vagina lips are noticeably swollen and my actual vagina is white while around it is flaming red. It doesnt feel like its internal. The pain of my lips can be described as burned or bruised... I only noticed this after i shaved so... What could this be? HELP PLEASE :(

it happened to me too. You might have yeast infection and u are not aware that you have it. So I suggest that you go to the doctor and have yourself checked. believe me when it gets worst you will regret.

the first symptom is burning and itching and usually you feel it after sex or after shaving. after few days of infection there will be a white discharge. dont drink antibiotic for it will help boost the production of fungi in your vagina

Ahh me too! Yesterday I had sex with my boyfriend and usually I get so crazy when I'm having sex and so wet! But this time... I just didn't get wet much at all! And we were having sex and it was hard to cause my vagina lips were swelling up cause he fingered me really hard and then it was really hard to get his **** inside cause I was swollen!!! Now my vagina lips kinda hurt whenever I walk. Uhhhh I wonder how long it's gonna hurt like this. :(
