Low but possible: No one can really tell you an exact number. Precum may contain viable sperm and if inserted far enough into the vagina may be able to fertilize an egg if you are ovulating. If you don't want to be pregnant don't do this.

Hi I'm 27 years old women, had hard swelling painless lump on labia majora and it disappeared by its own can it be syphilis?

No way to...: There is no way to assure you what this is until you get examined, and if the lesion is not there any longer then tested for syphilis. Certainly, in the first stage syphilis presents with a painless lesion which looks more like an ulcer, solitary and it disappears on its own. However the infection remains and it shows later with other symptoms. See your doctor for formal exam and testing.

Get checked: If you see pus and it is persistent, it is probably an infection of some sort. Both viral (herpes) and bacterial infections can be painful, so the best was to tell the difference is to have a healthcare provider look at it.

I'm about 3 weeks pregnant. Is swelling on the vagina lips normal for pregnancy? My boyfriend noticed I am tighter for the past 2 days

Pregnancy: There are a couple of possibilities, and swelling isn't one of them. You may be lubricating differently due to the radical hormonal changes that take place early in pregnancy. You could also be lubricating less simply due to worry/anxiety about being pregnant. None of this is serious. You will return to normal

Ejaculated near vulva, but got up in 1 minutes. Is there any chance of pregnancy?

Keep in mind: Ovulation is of course essential to pregnancy, but sperm in semen travels a long way inside and can live several days. So there may be a day or two difference in ovulation before/during/after intercourse that still results in pregnancy. Bottom line, if you're not intending a baby, use contraception. Also, over the counter 'plan b' is safe for most women after unprotected sex.

Can showering or wiping prevent pregnancy if sperm comes in contact with vulva, near vulva?

Sometimes: It takes very little time for sperm to start moving up the vagina and each drop contains about 20 million sperm per drop. Wiping off or removing some of the semen does remove some or most of the sperm, but very unlikely to remove all of it. Time for condoms and birth control.

What happens if so, would it cause itching, burning and swelling of the vagina and labia?

Discharge and itch: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe.
