A few things: A few things come to mind. Some labial swelling is common in pregnancy and can get worse after intercourse. You also may have a varicose vein there. This is very common in pregnancy. You also may have a yeast infection which can cause swelling. You can try an ice pack and then schedule a visit with your doctor for another exam and ask about these items.
