In brief: Labial swelling

If the swollen aspect of the left labium occurred spontaneously ("right after" intercourse) an ice pack will reduce swelling initially, but at "4 days" heat is better. If, on the other hand, you had some swelling prior to intercourse, the Bartholin's gland may be infected , enlarged, and this may need to be seen and drained, so see your gyn provider if the latter seems a better description.
