Hematoma: This is what I like to call a mild "hematomato" (hematoma). Blood has been trapped in the labial compartment making it appear darker, and the swelling & pain may go down with treatment after you see a GYN MD to make sure that it isn't infected. This can occur with severely restrictive clothing or a bicycle crossbar injury.
