What causes painful swollen labia after intercourse?

Hi, I got married last Saturday and had sex for the first time in 5+years. At first it hurt, my husband kinda stretched me. Things were OK for a few days after. But lately, my g spot hurts every time we have sex, and the clit hood (don t know the real term) is swollen, red and very sore. What s wrong with me?

Swollen labia could indicate the beginning of a genital infection, common yeast or fungal infection. Is there any associated redness, foul discharge or urinary or bowel symptoms?

Also, it could happen due to vigorous sex, masturbation, shaving etc in which case it is normal and would go away with ice packs.

Please write in with more details. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Take care.

I had sexual intercourse yesterday and shortly after it I was in a tremendous amount of pain, now to begin with I ascribe this to the fact that the intercourse was rough. However upon inspection I discovered my labia were very swollen. This swelling reduced over the course of a couple hours and was complete clear the next. However it was replaced by a urgency to urinate and the presence of blood in my urine, any ideas what this is or what to do?

my labia minora just started feeling very sore and swollen right after i had sex with my boyfriend. this has never happened before. I don t know if its just because it got irritated from the bodily fluids around it. Also, will it go away? If you could let me know what you think it is that would be great!

hello about a week ago me & my boyfriend had oral sex which was pretty rough, i could feel him sucking to the point where it was to hard & it also felt like he bit me. After the oral sex we had intercourse unprotected, i was swollen afterwards but then it went down. two days later i masturbated & now all of a sudden my labia minora is very swollen & there is about 2 bug like pimples on it as well, there not blisters but more like a bump & it s very painful - I ve been putting an ice pack on my vagina to reduce some of the swelling but i work & every time i walk it obviously irritates me & becomes swollen again, i also have a little bit of discharge - do i have an std or is from him biting me, i don t know what to do for the pain - I have a doctors apt with my gyn in the morning but I need answers now
