Swollen urethra and vagina after sex. Burning sensation while I use the restroom, no odor nor discharge. Std? Uti? Reaction to condom?

See answer: Such symptoms could be caused by any of the above: UTI (usually burning with urination, urgency, frequency); std (gc, chlamydia most common), vaginitis (though usually associated with a discharge), or allergy to a contraceptive, spermicide, or lubricant. If symptoms occur right after sex within hours, allergy or trauma related to vigorous/prolonged sex most likely. If symptoms persist, see your md.

Dyspareunia: There are several possible explanations for your vaginal discomfort. If there is a lump or localized swelling, it could be a bartholin cyst, which should be checked by your gynecologist. If you feel like there is swelling, but you don't see anything unusual, you may have too much friction during sex; try using a lubricant. You may be sensitive to your partner's condom, or rarely, to his semen.

My vagina gets swollen sometimes after sex why?

My vagina gets swollen sometimes after sex why?

Swelling: The vaginal area, especially the labia, get swollen during the arousal phase and may persist for sometime after intercourse. If you are not well lubricated prior to the actual insertion, minor trauma from the condition may be the cause. If you are using lubricants or a condom, make sure you are not sensitive or allergic to them.

My vagina gets swollen and pinful after sex why?

My vagina gets swollen and pinful after sex why?

Mild trauma: Part of the cause may simply be the increased blood flow to the area during arousal, but you may also not be lubricating sufficiently, leading to increased irritation. If you are using a lubricant you might be sensitive to it, and latex condoms can cause allergic reactions. I have also seen reactions to the partner's deodorant soap!

After sex my vagina was extremely swollen and still is somewhat today. Also a couple hours after sex a watery clear substance leaked onto my pants why?

Couple of issues: This could be an infection like trichomoniasis or something else. If you are using a condom or a lube, it could be an allergic reaction. I would see your ob/gyn to rule out infection first then it may be necessary to have a gyn visit the morning of or morning after sex, so your gyn can evaluate what is swelling. Could be a bartholins or skenes gland cyst as well.

Why does my vagina get sore and swollen after sex?

Why does my vagina get sore and swollen after sex?

Swollen Vagina: It is common for the labia to swell during intercourse, as the state of arousal rises. A sore vagina, however, indicates that there is excess internal trauma or friction that might respond to personal lubricants. Sometimes, it is a simple matter of physics - your partner's size may be the cause, and if personal lubricants don't help, you might explore more comfortable positions/techniques for you.

My vagina stings badly and feels swollen after sex, but only after my partner ejaculates inside. Why is this?

Allergy: You are likely having a local allergic reaction to the plasma of the semen. This can be just local or systemic, and it sounds like yours is local. You can try using preventive antihistamines prior to intercourse, or use condoms. If this this not satisfactory, then you will need to seek immunotherapy as a solution.

My vagina got swollen after sex & when I went to the restroom to urinate, it burned really bad. Why?

My vagina got swollen after sex & when I went to the restroom to urinate, it burned really bad. Why?

Trauma...: The mechanical aspects of intercourse can rub you a bit raw. When you urinate the acidic urine hurts when it touches the raw areas. It usually isn't persistent. If it is, you need to make sure you don't have a urinary tract infection. Using a lubricant sometimes will prevent this. Best wishes!

Every time after sex my vagina becomes really swollen and stays that way until the morning for almost a year. We don't use condoms or lubricant.

Sounds like: "rough sex" and the definition of this differs a lot!!! The most common cause is just that. Rough sex and lubricants can help! Condoms also will help if LUBRICATED. I assume this is NOT a question about "safe sex"....since these answers only deal with your SYMPTOMS! Hope this helps Dr Z

Vaginal swelling: Trauma, infection, irritation from ointments and soaps, allergy to semen, and rough or prolonged intercourse have all been reported as potential causes of vaginal swelling with sex. Lack of lubrication can certainly produce trauma of a sort. Do not know what your specific cause is, but this should be worked out with your gynecologist. Good luck.

Vaginitis: Without being able to examine you there is no way to tell what this is. Go see a doctor and be assessed appropriately.
