Find cause then rx: I would first identify the cause prior to blindly treati g withou knowing more. For example is this a tumor? Hernia? Metaplasia from chronic trauma? Is it lymphatic or vascular congestion? Positional? Work related? Congenital? Constrictive due to garment wear? Due to bone, skin, fat, nerves, vessels?, etc.

Hot sitz bath: If the swelling is due to bruising after intercourse, cycling, or other physical activity sitting in a warm bathtub will decrease the pain and swelling. If the swelling is one sided(labia) then it may be a swollen Bartholin's gland cyst/infection. If the sitz bath doesn't relieve the swelling see your MD. .

If after sex...: If it happens after sex, then too hard, too long, too dry, too rough, vagina too small, penis too big, not enough foreplay, infections, trauma, etc. If the problem does not resolve, you need to get examined by your doctor, don't be shy...Go! in the future, be gentle, use lube if needed (astroglide or pjur), go slow, if it hurts, stop and cuddle and try again later.
