Having some vaginal discomfort? Not really pain, more like a pressure that is worse when I'm sitting, but not painful when I urinate. Also, it feels like I am swollen on the inside? I am sexually active, with one partner, and we were both recently tested.
First : First of all, it does not sound like anything bad has happened or is going on inside you. The female pelvic organs are not firmly attached to the walls of the pelvis, so the uterus moves around quite a bit during intercourse. Also, the pelvic muscles (both voluntary — we control the contractions — and involuntary) are very involved in intercourse. My thoughts on your symptoms are that they may be like a pulled muscle after exercise. The treatment is similar — rest and anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen or acetominophen (tylenol), as long as you are not allergic to these. There are also certain chiropractic adjustments that some chiropractors know how to do that help with pelvic discomfort. If your symptoms don't get better over the next few days, your gynecologist can do an exam and make sure there are no internal vaginal tears or any other more important problem. ...Read more

Epididymitis causes painful swelling. ...Read more

Bug bites: I find the more common cause of this is bug bites. In my local this is often chiggers, but other bugs can also do it. An occasional case of poison ivy also presents this way. Local application of a weak steroid cream can reduce the itching and the process fades in a few days. Poor hygeine/masterbation are less common. ...Read more
I have a bump inside my lower stomach sometimes it gets swollen and when I have sexual intercourse it hurts a lot.?
Hmmm: The first thing that comes to my mind is a hernia, second is an ovarian cyst or dilated fallopian tube, something that has expanded in your reproductive system enough so that you can palpate it. You may want to have this evaluated by a physician. Have an imaging study to assess where this bump/mass is. ...Read more
