My right labia majora is swollen at the bottom. Just the right side. Could this just be a yeast infection? There's no itching, pain, odor, or discomfort, there is some minor white discharge. I've just noticed the right side is much larger than the left. I have had internal cysts in the pasts but it never cause visible swelling.
Last night I was having sexual intercourse with my partner and this morning I noticed that my right labia is very swollen and purple at the start of it. My left labia is fine. There is no itching and no redness. It is very sore, however. Should I go to the doctor? Did a blood vessel or vain break? Is it dangerous?
I have resurched type 2 and the only symtom I have that goes with type 2 is the itchyness. A few weeks ago My right labia was swollen and I had a small cut like thing on the outside of the labia in the crees. It was painful. The swelling went down the same day and the cut was gone by the next day. I had had sex the night before so I just thought it was from having sex cuz my doc said that your skin is thinned out from having a baby.
But, this morning (after putting on some aloe-based aftershave lotion), it gets so painful - my Labia are swollen and burning itching is so STRONG - argh! ** I've been crawling the web today... SEEMS like it could be CANDIDA... also could be IRRITANT DERMATITIS I've had yeast infections periodically before, but they were of the meek/mild variety!
i seem to have something similar and it has been occurring every few months or so. the right side of my vagina gets swollen and then my inner labia swells up as well. its painful to sit in certain positions. It doesn't burn when i urinate. i haven't had sex in like 6 months. what could this be. i dont have insurance so i cant go to the doctor or obgyn.
Right after having sex, my labia became extremely swollen and painful. It is hard to walk and sit. When I urinate it burns. Is there anything I can do besides using an icepack? When should the swelling go down? HELP!
5 years i have had some vaginal bleeding the last few days, is this perhaps connected,this is only on left labia and really swollen. I know this is not connected to hygiene,STD or allergy. I don"t get hot flashes but at night when I wake up itchy I notice my pubic area is wet from sweat and hot to.
My right iabia majora is swollen. It does not burn or itch. There are also 2 red spots. They don't itch or burn either. It was irritated when I wiped but not anymore. This has been going on a couple of days. What is it? Should I be worried?
I had sex about two days ago (im in a serious relationship), just finished my period about a week ago, and I came home from work just yesterday and as I went to change out of my work clothes, I noticed that only my right labia is swollen. It is unnoticeable unless u touch it to something, underwear, pants, sitting, using the washroom etc. There are no bumps or tears, but there is a small red dot on the tip of my right labia...
My symptoms started with what looked and felt like a yeast infection under only the hood of the clitoris, once that cleared up I was still experiencing extreme sensitivity on the clitoris and/or the inner labia. My inner labia are swollen to some degree every day; sometimes sensitivity comes with this, sometimes not. When I say sensitivity I mean that every little hair, underwear or anything that touches my inner labia or clitoris is an irritant!!
She also told me to use Dial soap as it has an antibacterial property to prevent future outbreaks. Of course my labia was still extremely swollen when I left her office and when the swelling receded, I had another cyst present in a different location. I have been using hot compresses to see if that resolves the issue. I just want to say how sorry I am for anyone who has been suffering with this for years!!
Last night was more aggressive and longer than usual and I went home with a swollen right labia. I felt the discomfort last night but I didn't see it til this morning. I'm assuming it's just from the roughness of sex and drying up a couple times but other articles I have read say it can be a sympton to UTI. I'm a little nervous and just hope the discomfort goes away soon. Has this ever happened to anyone before? And does it happen less frequently as time goes on? And why do I dry up sometimes?.
My labia minora is very itchy and is now red and slightly swollen, probably from scratching so much. I've never had a yeast infection before, but I was recently prescribed a cream to deal with a fungal infection of my eczema on my arm. The little research I've done seems to indicate the fungal infection and the yeast infection share similar sources. It is really itchy but no discharge or any other symptoms. Is it a yeast infection?
However, later the itching returned even worse, the soreness was back, but not really noticeable because my labia have swollen to TWO or THREE times their size. I'm terrified. What is going on? Is this normal? Is this a yeast infection? Am I having an allergic reaction to the monostat? I'm using ice to try to bring the swelling down, but any information would be helpful, as I am TERRIFIED.
never had an issue before now, but the last two times we've had sex/sexual contact I've been left with an extremely swollen and painful labia on the left side only. It burns all over too. It's nothing to do with lubrication, and it does go down but it's incredibly uncomfortable. Is there anyone who's had this? Anything to calm it down?
Hello! My daughter got a swollen labia majora on one side after masturbating at school on her chair. I have no idea how she got to do that - she may had some sensation and she explored. I just noticed and questioned her after about a week when I notice secretion on the underwera when doing laundry. She is not doing anymore and the secretion decreased, almost gone, but the swelling of that side is still there even if she is taking sit baths every evening in water with camomile tea and salt.

and now for FOUR months i have had to deal with a swollen labia after sex... and even if i don't get swollen, i am worried i will be during sex... which takes the pleasure out of sex.. The only thing that i have found that helps is lube.... my OBGYN suggested Astroglide, although i have been using something else and have had ok results with not swelling..
If anyone can help me. My labia minora is constantly swollen. Not visibly but when I can feel that it is irritated. I would go through 3-4 weeks of consistent irritation and maybe a 2 week relief period. When it goes away I can always count on it to come back. I have no itching and no redness no abnormal discharge and lastly no stds . I am not having any form of sex. What is this ? Why does it feel like I have a little grape between my legs ?
There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholin’s glands. These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a painless, hard swelling.In such cases, antibiotics may be helpful, or surgical treatment might be required. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
I'm trying to figure out what the deal is with a purple bump on my labia. It didn't turn white with the vinegar test. It doesn't hurt or itch. It doesn't look like a blister. It doesn't have fluid inside of it. Its consistency is smooth. It's been nearly 2 years since the last time I was involved sexually (it was protected, though I understand condoms don't protect 100% against some STI skin conditions). I need to know if this is a serious problem (I'm 22).
was on the right labia, but the sacrum pain was really toward the left side. (The area was also a bit swollen feeling.) Just to double-check, though (I am very concerned for this new guy I am with) - lysine, low thyroid, and hsv1 wouldn't skew my test results by more than a couple of weeks, would they? Also, what would be the case if the man I was with had gone down on me wih an itchy beard several minutes after the genital contact? (Ok, ok, he did.
old female, and for the past 6-8 months or so, I've been very itchy in my groin area - it seems I have a little bulge between the bottom of my labia and my anus, which is very itchy, and now my labia will all of a sudden start itching very bad (and gets red and swollen when I itch it - which I try not to do:). I recently had a colonoscopy and the doctor didn't mention that it was a hemorrhoid or anything so I don't think it is.
I have had a painful swelling in the upper right side of my labia minora. It is very swollen and painful. I have done a search, but the only thing I find is for a Bartholin gland cyst and my husband doesn't think it looks the same as my swelling is on the same part only on the upper portion of the labia minora. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. I have soaked in a bath and taken advil, but it is still hurting to walk or sit in certain positions. Thanks!
