Swelling of the vaginal area after sex, smelly white (sometimes thick or watery discharge) white stuff around my clitoris(smells) ongoing for years!!!

Professional exam: Swelling or irritation suggest yeast (thrush), but discharge description and odor are more like bacterial vaginosis or perhaps trichomonas.

I have painful bumps or acne like near in my right clitoris its red and swelling and its so uncomfortable its been two days now please help me ?

Here some thoughts: Although acne do not occur in this area, it can be a virus infection which can cause blisters which are painful. There are two things you can do, firstly take pain medicine for the next 2-3 days that it will take to heal. You could take Tylenol or paracetamol 650 mg every 4-6 hourly till the pain settles down. If you have more than one lesion and it does not settle down in 2 days, go see your Gyne ...Read more

Is it possible for a girl to feel her vagina getting moist, or swelling up of her clitoris and labia and boobs?

Is it possible for a girl to feel her vagina getting moist, or swelling up of her clitoris and labia and boobs?

Yes: Sexual arousal can be detected by the woman just as a man can tell when he is feeling aroused. The female response is fairly complex, but many women are aware of the response while it is occurring. It may be far more difficult for the male partner to determine the female arousal response. If you aren't sure, ask! my rule is if you can't talk about sex with someone, you shouldn't be having it! ...Read more

I had sexual intercourse a few days ago and noticed some swelling in the clitoral area, as well as extreme sensitivity. Why is this? Is it cure-able?

If there's any spreading redness or temperature get checked out. If there's any discharge or urinary complaints, get checked out. If your partner gives you any suspicion, get checked out. Stop sex till determined/gone ...Read more
