Yeast: I am confused about whether you are pregnant or not. Swelling, itching and vaginal discharge are all symptoms of a yeast infection. Yeast infections are more common in pregnancy. If you are not pregnant, try one of the over the counter yeast medicines and see a doctor if it's not better in a few days see your doctor. If you are pregnant, it always safest to check with your doctor first. ...Read more

My vagina was itchy then I had sexual intercourse the next day and now my vagina is itchy and really swollen, what could be causing this?
I used coconut oil for lubricant 5 days ago, and my vagina/vulva is burning, itchy, swollen, painful. I used monostat 1, and still feel uncomfortable.
Allergic reaction: I agree that you should never use coconut oil as a vaginal lubricant. I suggest careful washing with baby soap to remove any remnants and then use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and topical 1% hydro cortisone to the external vaginal area. See your GYN on Monday. Stop th Monistst and use Sitz baths (2 lbs of epsom salts in 6-8 inches of warm water, for 15 minutes 3-4 times a day. ...Read more

Vaginitis: Are you sexually active and have you had similar symptoms before? Are there any clear pimples in the area of the vagina? How long have you had these symptoms? If yes to each, you may have a herpes outbreak. You should see a provider to get this checked out as soon as possible. Although it may be a vaginal infection, you should get it checked. ...Read more
For the past few days my vagina has produced a lot of white tissue like discharge and its very itchy and possibly swollen, what is this?
My vagina lips turned pink, swollen, and itchy after a shower. It hasn't been ^^ at all these past days though i have noticed a strange odor.
Mixed symptoms: The main cause of labial redness and itching is yeast infection. Probably not related to the shower, except soap and water making you notice the symptoms. However, yeast doesn't generally cause odor; the main cause of strong vaginal odor is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of bacteria, especially if you are sexually active. If so, you also need STD testing. See a doctor to sort it all out. ...Read more

Probably vagiitis: Vaginitis, an infection of the vagina with yeast, trichomonas (a protozoan parasite), or bacteria, is very common. If there is pain or tiny ulcerations, it could also be a herpes infection. Some of these are sexually transmitted (trichomonas or herpes), while yeast and bacterial infections can just happen, often due to changes in hormones, antibiotics, etc. See your gyn to diagnose. ...Read more
