Hot sitz bath: If the swelling is due to bruising after intercourse, cycling, or other physical activity sitting in a warm bathtub will decrease the pain and swelling. If the swelling is one sided (labia) then it may be a swollen Bartholin's gland cyst/infection. If the sitz bath doesn't relieve the swelling see your MD.. ...Read more

The blood flo in my labia got restricted for a like 24 hours and now its darker in color is and it's a little swollen, painful it's been a whole day?
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. ...Read more
I have swollen inner labia. I left a tampon in for 8.5 hours one day and the nxt day for 11 hours. Could this be connected? Smear was normal last week
Yes: Leaving in tampons for prolonged periods of time strongly encourages bacteria growth which can infect the labia. When tampons are left in place for long periods of time Toxic Shock Syndrome can occur with fatal consequences. Please change your tampons more frequently (4 to 6 hours) even if they are not totally saturated. ...Read more
