Urethral diverticula: The swelling may be a urethral diverticulum that occurs under the urethra. Sex is not a cause but you need an examination to determine the cause

Swelling (Definition)

Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

I have a lump/swelling inside my vagina directly below my urethra? It blocks entire vaginal opening its so swollen, and its painful.

I have a lump/swelling inside my vagina directly below my urethra? It blocks entire vaginal opening its so swollen, and its painful.

Ouch: That sounds painful. The most common lesion like this in the vagina is going to be a bartholin gland cyst, if it's really big, then it could definitely extend up as high as you describe. I would see a doctor or clinic asap and they can possibly drain this for you and relieve the pain that you are feeling. Regardless, an exam is warranted. Hope you feel better soon!

Boil: Boils are referred to as abscesses, in the medical community. They can occur from breaks in the skin, which provide a route of infection for bacteria to form an abscess (collection of pus/infection). When this happens, you may need to see a medical provider who may need to prescribe you antibiotics or incise and drain the abscess. Some home remedies may include a warm compress and ibuprofen.

Verify: Sometimes a “cut” is just a cut. These heal on their own. Other times a “cut” is something else though - some common causes are genital herpes, yeast infections and lichen sclerosis. See an Obgyn to help verify the diagnosis. The proper treatment can be prescribed and recommended

Can swelling be permanent of the vagina and vaginal opening? I'm worried it will never subside!

Can swelling be permanent of the vagina and vaginal opening? I'm worried it will never subside!

Very rarely: Unless you have a very rare condition, swelling of the vagina and vaginally opening won't be permanent. The vagina can swell alot due to trauma or some infections/irritants but this does go away. Hope this helps.

Good morning, I have some external vaginal itching that has occurred for three days now. There is no redness or swelling. I did have unprotected sex recently with someone new who I know is clean. I was very dry and it was a little painful. It's been since

Most likely it: Is a yeast or bacterial infection. Please get yourself to the nearest healthcare provider to get diagnosed and treated. And in the future please do not have unprotected intercourse if anyone unless you have been married to that person for 10 years and trust him to be faithful with you. You never know who the other person may have been with and some things hang out a long time...

Vaginal skin in the opening is peeling, white and filmy. I've been using serre vaginal tightening stick latley. Home treatment? Urgent care?

Unknown: Serre sticks cauterize the mucosa of the vagina (turns white) and cause peeling. The company describes this as "the vaginal walls getting rid of the toxins". If you are uncomfortable or concerned, seek medical attention. Care should be exercised when purchasing products like these. If you are unfamiliar with the ingredients, talk to your doctor before use.

Swelling urethral opening with burning and irritation, frequent urination, whitish stuff around vaginal wall, lower back pain, what this could be?

Swelling urethral opening with burning and irritation, frequent urination, whitish stuff around vaginal wall, lower back pain, what this could be?

Get examined: There could be more than one thing going on here and you need to see a doctor to be evaluated. You could have a UTI or a yeast infection or a vaginal bacterial infection. The back pain may suggest worsening and rising of an infection outside of your pelvis. I wouldn't wait.

Probably cyst: I would still see a gynecogist for an exam, because it could be something else. Hope this helps!

Another episode: Sounds like a repeat urinary infection. Testing to confirm and find which bug and medicineis needed would be best. To avoid these, discuss sexual activity-if pertinent- with your provider.
