Pain in left labia and above during sexual intercourse followed by swelling, discomfort in walking and sitting. Can it be treated at home?

During a sexual intercourse yesterday the left labia and the above area started to hurt a lot. After an hour or so it became REALLY swollen! Now it s a bit blue/purple in some parts and hangs out because it s inflated. It s uncomfortable walking and sitting down as well! Is it a form of disease or can it be treated at home?

Hi there.

It all depends on who the sexual partner is. Does He have some itching or any ailment.

It could very well be an infected bartholin's cyst & respond well to a course of antibiotics & anti-inflammatory agents in a dose appropriate for your body weight & may need a prescription or the help of a friendly neighbourhood pharmacist.

Ideally however, Yes it needs the intervention of your gynecologist/GP

You may want to consider going across to the Doctor especially if you have any underlying medical condition eg. Diabetes etc. It may need to be drained..do Not try at home!

Moral of the story is 'practice safe sex' & do hope you get better soon..take care & Godspeed!
