Have swollen mons pubis and labia majora after exercise. Have taken advil and icing the area. Is it because of lower abdomen exercises?


I have been working out the past week and a half. I am doing weight training, agility, and cardio. This morning, I worked out by doing several leg exercises, some back extensions, squats, and ab exercises. I didnt notice anything wrong while i was working out, but when i got undressed in the locker room i noticed that my mons pubis was extremely 3 times its normal size. My labia majora is also swollen to 3 times the normal size. both are swollen to the point where the skin is tight. I have taken advil and am icing the area. I have done a lot of googlin of issues, and discovered that this may be related to lower ab exercises. im not sure what to do

Exercising is good for health with cardio and weight training but before starting your work out you should do warm up exercises and after compliting your work out you should do cool down exercises this is the perfect way to do exercise......... and please dont do exercises with out any guidence of couches which hurts your joints and muscles...
Coming to your problem it may went wrong while you are exercising so check your shoes whether they fitted your legs or become loose or tight and use good quality of shoes while doing work outs and consult orthopedician for pubis problem and follows his suggestions....
None of the Lower ab exercises hurts Labia majora untill and unless you done exercises in wrong way so,once go for x-ray or MRI if necessary and consult a DR for further suggestions
For further query writhe me back
