What can it be below one side of my virgina lip is swollen especailly after sex, ?

Bartholins gland : A swelling on one side low outside the vagina is a bartholins gland cyst. They commonly flare after sex. The duct opening is blocked. During sex the gland secretes fluid. So the fluid is backing up and causing the gland to swell. Applying heat for 10 minutes 2-4 times daily will help. Soaking in a bath also helps. If it continues to cause trouble, it may need to be draining and reopened. ...Read more

Asymmetric Lip Aug: It is highly unlikelyt that the surgeon injected you unevenly and the difference you are currently experiencing may be due to post operative swelling which is greatest in the first four days following fat transfer. This is likely to improve. However, contact your surgeon to ensure that this is not due to bleeding. Positional changes, such as the way you sleep at night, could make it worse. Use ice. ...Read more

Salivary gland?: There are ancillary salivary glands in the lip. If over time the habit of lip biting or sucking may have caused an extravasation cyst or disruption of the salivary gland and may stay swollen. Sometimes they will resorb over time; sometimes it requires surgical excision by an oral surgeon. ...Read more
