Good idea: Do try cold compresses (not too icy) and fragrance-free talcum powder to keep the area dry. Also, you could try yogurt-soaked tampons. The natural bacteria in the yoghurt can help restore a balance, thereby reducing irritation from any possible infection. You can also try soaking, for short period, in bath with bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) of soda. Sulphur dissolved in water helps. Have a bit of gentle sex. Best! ...Read more

After sex my vagina got swollen and then the next day i had sex again and it start to burn like if got bruised in one side of my inner vagina lip. Why?

Abrasion/Bruising: You may have an abrasion, essentially a friction burn. Also, with vigorous activity, you might have some bruising. Be sure you are well lubricated, either from foreplay or a water-soluble lubricant (e.g., KY jelly). Also, be sure your partner is gentle enough not to harm your fragile genital tissues. Finally, if you are sore "down there, " you might refrain from activity until you are fully healed. ...Read more

More likely this could be a result of just vigorous intercourse or an allergic reaction. Regardless you should talk to your gynecologist and get a pelvic exam to make sure that there isn't anything worse. ...Read more
