I just had sex with my boyfriend for a good amount of time and my inner labia are swollen to a big size, what does this mean?

Couple things: Sex involved friction of penile tissue to female genital tissue. So, prolonged sex may cause temporary swelling from friction. However, infection is another possible cause, so if concerned have your gyn do a quick evaluation. If the swelling persists you need to consider a bartholin's cyst as well, though less likely.
