I'm a 36 year old woman. I've experienced extreme swollen eyes after having intercourse with a new partner. I did not experience an orgasm either of the time. We've had intercourse 2 times and each time my eyes, especially the area under my eyes, puffed up vigorously. Do you know what may cause this? I've never experienced it in the past.
Many thanks

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

It appears that probably you are having allergy to soke aspect of your partner.It can be anything right from the cream that he applies to the detergent he uses for washing uis clothes. This allergy causes venous congestion and swelling below the eyes.
You can take cetrizine during such periods to reduce the swelling. Its difficult to prevent it unless you identify the specific allergen and ask him to kee away from it.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
