I was just wondering if this is normal or not: during
, if it's a heavier one, I some
s feel pain in the "lips" of my vagina, like they're sore or swollen. They don't appear to be swollen though. I feel like this might just be due to the increased blood
flow down there but it was especially bad this time
(though I should add this is my first period in about 8 months - I went off birth control, but am going to go back on soon [I've never been pregnant]).
