Hi there. Thank you for posting your question.

Swelling of one lip of your vagina is very unlikely to be due to a fungal infection. Nor, for that matter, is it likely to be due to any STD. I really think that you can relax about this aspect of things.

Swelling of one lip of a vagina may be due to a Bartholin cyst or infected hair follicle. If it persists you may need to see a doctor but I would not panic about it. I do not think that all that stuff about your boyfriend being hungover and taking medicine is of any relevance.

I hope you found this helpful and will accept this answer. Good health!
