Swelling in the labia minora. Stinging while urination. Solution?

After having sex my labia minora swells up quite badly and it stings to wee, and doesn t go down till the next day or even takes a few days. This has only started to happen recently and hasn t happened with any other sexual partners. I also seem to have a lot more vaginal discharge than I used to and it can be white in colour. I am 16 years old, 8 1/2 stone and I haven t had any previous problems in that area.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
There could be a number of causes for this, but none of them serious; you'll be pleased to know. Irritation in this area is a real nuisance. it is most likely to be some form of allergy or dermatitis, and the commonest causes of this in this area is a reaction to something you are coming into contact with.
This could be to do with clothing – say the material of your underwear or jeans. Or it could be a vaginal deodorant or spray if you use one, or even a bath additive of some sort.
This is a very sensitive area, so think about whether there is something you are coming into contact with in this region that might be causing it. For relief try getting some 1 per cent hydrocortisone cream.
A normal, physiological, discharge is usually clear, creamy or very slightly yellow.
It is advisable to consult a doctor if any of the following changes are noticed as they may indicate that the discharge is caused by infection (vaginitis).
If there is suddenly a greater amount of discharge.
If the discharge changes colour from yellow-whitish to brownish, reddish or greenish.
If it becomes smelly.

Have a great day
