Swollen labia majora after rough sex. Ice pack?

Swollen labia majora after rough sex. Ice pack?

Cause?: Certainly ice nearly always helps but prevention is key as well as identifying cause. If friction is to blame lubricants may help, however it could also be due to sensitivity to applied products such as lubricants, spermicidal agents or latex allergy/sensitivity. Anti-inflammatories may also help. Make sure std is not to blame & use appropriate precautions. Positions & specific sexual activities?

It depends: The level of "trauma" to the labia minora can be minor or more severe. Sex that is too long, too rough, too dry etc can cause severe swelling. It is also possible that you have developed an infection, std or some other problem. If the swelling does not resolve, you need to be examined, call your doctor!
