My labia minora is swollen: The request could not be satisfied
Vulvitis | pathology | Britannica
Vulvitis, inflammation and infection of the vulva—the external genitalia of the female. The external organs of the vulva include the labia majora and minora (folds of skin), the clitoris, and the vestibular glands. The basic symptoms of vulvitis are superficial red, swollen, and moisture-laden lesions on the skin of the vulva. Itching sensations are a particularly prominent and consistent symptom. The areas of affected vulvar skin may turn white, crack, or develop fluid-filled blisters that break open, ooze, and crust over.
The skin of the vulva is subject to all the irritations, infections, and other conditions that affect skin elsewhere on the body. Moreover, the skin of the vulva is unusually susceptible to irritation because it is moist and warm. Besides sometimes providing a breeding ground for bacteria, these conditions can render the vulva susceptible to allergic or inflammatory reactions from direct contact with underwear or commercial hygiene products. The vulva can become the site of infections by bacteria, fungi, or viruses, and vulvitis may also accompany similar infections of the vagina (vaginitis). Depletion of estrogen, as occurs in postmenopausal women, can lead to drying and thinning of the vulvar tissues, rendering them more susceptible to irritation and infection. The vulva can be contaminated by urine, feces, vaginal discharges, and menstrual flow.
44 Questions from Britannica’s Most Popular Health and Medicine Quizzes
How much do you know about human anatomy? How about medical conditions? The brain? You’ll need to know a lot to answer 44 of the hardest questions from Britannica’s most popular quizzes about health and medicine.
Among the most common causes of vulvitis are inflammations arising from vulvar skin’s allergic reaction to soaps, vaginal sprays and deodorants, sanitary napkins, panty hose, synthetic underwear, or the detergents used to wash underwear. Allergic reactions usually take a few days to manifest themselves and produce such symptoms as itching, mild redness, and swelling.
Vulvitis may also be caused by fungi, bacteria, or herpes or other viral infections. Fungal diseases of the vulva are common; usually the agent of infection is Candida albicans, a yeastlike fungus. Women with diabetes are especially susceptible to these infections, as are women who eat large amounts of carbohydrates (starches). Gardnerella vaginalis is the most common bacterial cause of vulvitis. Mycoplasma, Escherichia coli, and staphylococci and streptococci may also cause infections. Tight, nonporous, nonabsorbent underwear in combination with poor hygiene may foster the growth of bacterial or fungal infections on the vulvar skin.

A cortisone cream is sometimes used to relieve the itching of vulvitis until a specific therapy can be decided upon. The particular causative agent of the condition must be isolated if treatment is to be effective. Wearing loose, absorbent underwear that allows the circulation of air is often the only necessary treatment for contact vulvitis. The substitution of cotton for synthetic garments may also help to alleviate the problem. Vulvitis arising from fungal and bacterial infections is usually treated by the topical application of creams that kill the causative microorganisms. Candida vulvitis is treated with clotrimazole, nystatin, or miconazole creams; Gardnerella and other bacterial infections are treated with metronidazole; and Chlamydia infections are treated with the antibiotics doxycycline or erythromycin.
How Size, Color Can Change
Have you ever wondered what typical labia and vaginas look like and how yours compare? Maybe you’ve grabbed a mirror at some point and checked things out. (If not, have a look!)
Now that you’re expecting, you may also wonder how pregnancy and childbirth may affect your labia and your vagina’s shape and size.
Since plenty of women haven’t seen many, if any, other female genitalia in real life, you’re not alone if you wonder what’s “normal” and how having a baby may change things down there.
Is it normal for your vagina and labia to change?
Women come in all shapes and sizes and so do their labia and vagina. That means a normal labia or a normal vagina is completely relative to you.
The labia majora (outer lips) of the vagina can range anywhere from full to flat and can fluctuate a bit with changes in your weight, just like your bra size.
The labia minora (inner lips), measured from the upper-most skin fold to the lowest hanging edge, are typically anywhere from 0.7 to 5 centimeters in length. They may be completely hidden by the labia majora, or the bottom edge may hang below it.
For the most part, the size and shape of your labia (both outer and inner) are determined by your genetics — not your hormone levels or your sexual activity. Mother Nature just gave you what you’ve got.
The vagina is on average about 3 inches long from the cervix (the neck of the uterus) to the vulva. No two are the same: Every vagina ranges in shape and color. Because it’s highly elastic, the vagina is designed to stretch and accommodate your baby during birth.
That said, the hormonal and physical changes that happen during pregnancy and childbirth can cause your vagina and labia to change, sometimes temporarily and sometimes for the long term.
Vaginal changes during pregnancy
During pregnancy, you know the role that hormones play in all sorts of wacky changes throughout your body, from nasal congestion to swollen feet.
Many of these symptoms are due to increased levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone, which boost blood flow throughout your body to support your baby — including to your labia.
As a result, your labia and vagina may experience the following changes:
- Swelling. The labia majora and minora may increase slightly in size and look puffy or swollen for the duration of your pregnancy.
- Discoloration. The color of your skin on both your inner and outer labia may temporarily darken to a bluish or purplish color due to increased blood flow.
- Labia shape. Sometimes the outer lips may slightly retract, which can make the inner lips look bigger or expose them for the first time.
- Varicose veins. Varicose veins are common during pregnancy, including on your vulva (or external genitalia). Increased blood flow throughout the body can cause blood to pool in the pelvic region, dilating blood vessels and leading to bluish, bumpy veins that are aggravated by long periods of standing, exercise or sex.
- Infections. Hormonal changes can increase the risk of yeast infections during pregnancy — and the corresponding itchiness and discomfort.
- Increased discharge. Extra discharge during pregnancy helps to maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the vagina. Discharge should be thin, milky and mild-smelling. If it’s lumpy, thick or accompanied by other symptoms (like itchiness or a fishy odor), let your doctor know.
- Spotting. While heavy vaginal bleeding that soaks through a pad is a sign of something potentially more serious, light spotting during pregnancy is relatively common and usually benign.
Vaginal changes due to childbirth
If you’re concerned about how pregnancy and childbirth will affect the size and shape of your vagina and labia, you’re not alone. The reality is, the tissue down there is very elastic and generally remains intact.
If you have a vaginal birth or pushed before having a C-section, you may notice the following changes to your labia and vagina:
- Stretches and tears. You may experience tears to the vagina during labor and delivery, and the labia minora (but not majora) can sometimes slightly stretch or tear. Tears to your vagina and labia will usually heal within seven to 10 days.
- Soreness. The amount of postpartum perineal pain you’ll experience depends on how you delivered and whether you had any tears. Vagial and labial soreness should resolve within a few weeks.
Regularly doing kegels before and after birth can help your labor and delivery go smoother and prevent pelvic floor problems.
Will my labia return to the way it was before pregnancy?
Virtually all the changes that happen to your labia during and after pregnancy are temporary. Once you’ve given birth, your typical coloring will return as blood flow goes back to normal.
Upon baby’s arrival, the size of the labia minora should retract to their previous size with decreased blood flow; for some women, labia may even shrink a bit more. Longer-lasting changes to your labia, if any, are typically minor, and there’s a good chance they’ll go unnoticed by both you and your partner, if you have one.
Meanwhile, your vagina after birth will vary depending on many factors, including how you delivered, what number delivery this is for you, your genetics, the size of your baby and more. While your vagina won’t be exactly the same after delivery, it will be close. You may not even notice any difference.
In rare cases, some women’s doctors may recommend a surgical procedure called labiaplasty — or contouring performed on the labia — for physical complications that arise when the inner lips protrude prominently past the outer lips. These can include irritation from wearing snug clothes or increased friction during certain activities like bicycling.
During sex, the penis may push the loose folds of the labia minora into the vaginal cavity, resulting in abrasions or ulcerations. Extra tissue can also result in repeated yeast infections or UTIs because of trapped moisture. If you experience more than four of either infection per year, talk to your doctor about whether it could be caused by your labia minora.
If you’re considering labiaplasty for cosmetic reasons, however, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the country’s leading group of OB/GYNs, cautions against the procedure. Their experts have noted that women could benefit from an honest discussion with their doctor, since appearance varies significantly.
As with any surgery, there are also risks, including post-surgery complications like bleeding and infections, increased dryness in the genital area, discomfort later in life as tissues naturally thin out and dissatisfaction with your results.
So talk to your OB/GYN the next time you visit — he or she should be able to ease any concerns about the appearance of your genital area.
Bottom line: Healthy labia and vaginas vary vastly in size and appearance. So don’t worry. Rest easy knowing that yours fall somewhere in the range of normal and normal.

A 17-year-old unmarried female presented with asymptomatic painless swelling over left side of vulva for three months. Initially small, it gradually progressed to the present size with no spontaneous bleeding or oozing. There were no constitutional symptoms. There was no history of tuberculosis, sexual contact, trauma or abdominal/genital surgery.
On examination, there was pedenculated, convoluted, flesh colored, smooth and non warty mass, with stalk length of approximately 10cm and globular mass of 3×3 cm, hanging from left side of labia majora. It was firm, non tender and local temperature over swelling was not raised. There was serosanginous discharge on puncturing it. There was no evidence of inguinal lymphadenopathy. There was no edema of lower extremities and vulva. No abnormality was detected in perianal region.
Routine investigations like hemogram, Chest X ray, USG abdomen, ELISA for HIV, VDRL, TPHA were normal. As there was no apparent cause of lesion, excision biopsy was done and it was subjected to histopathological examination.
WHAT IS YOUR DIAGNOSIS?
Convoluted, pedenculated mass present over left side of labia majora
Histopathology- H and E staining (100×)
Convoluted, pedenculated mass present over left side of labia majora
Histopathology- H and E staining (100×)
Diagnosis: Lymphangiectasia with Lymphedema (Acquired Lymphangioma)
On histopathological examination there was sparse superficial perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate with marked dilation of several lymphatics throughout the dermis. The reticular dermis showed several thickened and dilated larger lymphatics. Overlying epidermis showed mild spongiosis. The dermis showed abundant fibroplasia around dilated and thickened lymphatics.
These findings were consistent with diagnosis of Lymphangiectasia with lymphedema.
Lymphangiectasia is a benign condition with multiple dilated lymph vessels in the dermis whereas Lymphangioma are distended lymphatics due to structural abnormality of tumor like nature.
Vulval Lymphangiectasia is a rare disease, usually acquired or secondary and not as a result of congenital lymphatic malformation. It is due to obstruction to drainage which leads to back pressure and dermal backflow with subsequent dilatation of surface lymphatics. It usually presents with circumscribed groups of tense, thin walled vesicles. It is reported following 7-15 years after ilioinguinal block dissection or pelvic surgery and radiotherapy for gynecological cancer. In the case discussed, a 17-year-old girl presented with solitary, smooth, flesh colored, pedenculated, convoluted mass of three months duration only. The patient was investigated for secondary causes like TB, Crohn’s disease and cervical or ovarian cancer. There was no history of genital/abdominal surgery or radiotherapy in this patient. There was no lymphedema of corresponding limb and no sign and symptoms of inflammation of vulva suggestive of recurrent infections and cellulitis which are common complications. The diagnosis was considered acquired lymphangioma on clinical and histopathological grounds but there was no obvious cause. Advanced investigation like lymphoscintigraphy and lymphangiography are reported to be useful for providing information regarding anatomy of lymphatics and any abnormal lymphatic flow pattern to identify the cause of lymphangiectasia. However, they are not easily available.
Huilgolet al. reported that iatrogenic cases following surgery and radiotherapy for cancer appear to be most common, but many cases are idiopathic.
Okuret al.reported a case of a 27-year-old woman with vulval lymphangiectasia with ipsilateral congenital lower extremity lymphedema which appeared at age of 19 years and described that de novo acquired lesions without lymphatic disturbance are less frequently seen. However, the condition may arise without adjacent lymphedema.
Buckley and Barnes reported a 35-year-old patient who had lymphedema since the age of 14 and underwent two cellulitis attacks. Thereafter, lymphangiectasia on the vulva appeared in the same year.
The patient was referred to the gynecological department for excision of the mass. Stitches were removed after seven days and complete healing with reepithelialisation and resolution of postoperative pain and swelling occurred within one month. The patient was instructed to come back in case of any recurrence.
Excisional surgery and carbon dioxide laser are two major treatment modalities. Carbon dioxide laser vaporizes the lesion superficially, seals the underlying lymph vessels and diminish the recurrence. The vesicular and papular lymphangiectatic lesions and verucous plaques are ablated to the level of visually and palpably normal dermis. The laser therapy can be repeated if any recurrences occur. Delayed wound healing, scars, and even keloid formation may be seen after laser therapy.
Excisional surgery eliminates the abnormal subcutaneous lymph vessels and cisterns, and corrects the aesthetic appearance of the edematous vulva. It is the only plausible choice in the therapy of advanced disease. Cryotherapy, electrocoagulation, and sclerosing agent injection are other modalities of treatment.

If your labia are swollen during pregnancy or after birth, it’s normal. Learn why it happens, plus what to do about it.
Swollen labia during pregnancy
Some women find that their labia feel swollen during pregnancy. The area may not look very swollen, but it may feel full, irritated, or even itchy. The skin of your labia may also appear darker.
Your labia are the lips that surround the opening to your vagina, so it may feel like you have a swollen vagina. All of your external genitalia – including labia, vaginal opening, urethral opening, and clitoris – are known as the vulva.
The changes to your vulva during pregnancy are due to increased blood flow to the area from the demands of your growing uterus and baby.
The feeling of fullness or heaviness in the vulva may start early in your first trimester and may grow more intense as your pregnancy progresses. This could be because your uterus and baby are getting larger and applying more pressure to the area. And you may feel more pressure late in pregnancy when your baby “drops.” This happens when the baby’s head moves lower into the pelvis in preparation for labor.
You may also notice swollen blue or purple veins on your labia. These varicose veins (known as vulvar varicosities) are caused by your growing uterus compressing the veins in your pelvis and increases the pressure inside them. Changes in pregnancy hormones also causes your veins to widen and relax, allowing them to swell.
What’s more, the increase in your blood volume during pregnancy limits how quickly your blood returns from your lower body to your heart. The result is that blood accumulates in the veins of your legs and vulva, causing them to bulge.
You may notice that your symptoms are worse after standing, exercise, or sex.
If you develop varicose veins in your labia during pregnancy, they tend to go away within six weeks after delivery.
How can I get relief from swollen labia during pregnancy?
- Change position frequently. Avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time.
- Put your feet up. Elevate your legs above your heart (prop them on pillows) while lying down to help promote circulation.
- Use cold compresses. Apply a cold pack covered in a cloth to your vulva to ease your discomfort.
- Use a support garment. Look for a compression band, support strap, or underwear designed for vulvar varicosities. Some also provide support for the lower abdomen and lower back.
Swollen labia after giving birth
It’s common for your labia to be swollen and sore after a vaginal birth. The miraculous process of giving birth does tend to traumatize the tissues in the vaginal area. Fortunately, your body’s ability to heal is equally miraculous.
The tender treatment you’re probably already giving your perineum — ice packs for the first 12 to 24 hours and warm, soothing sitz baths after that — will do wonders for your labia, too. (For more details on postpartum care for the vaginal area, see our article on caring for a sore perineum.)
Within a few days to a week after having your baby, the swelling and soreness around your labia should begin to subside. And two weeks postpartum, you should definitely be on the mend. If you haven’t noticed significant improvement by then, ask your health provider about it.
Swollen down there? The 11 things that can cause swelling around your vagina
IT’S an uncomfortable feeling no woman wants to experience…but swelling down there does happen.
Not only is it a worrying sight, but it can also cause pain and discomfort, something no woman wants.
There are a number of possible reasons for swelling down thereCredit: Getty – Contributor
Vulvovaginitis is the name given to a number of condition that can cause swelling, redness and irritation around the vulva and vagina.
There are many reasons why you might be slightly puffy down there, from infection to trauma.
And if you do notice a change in size you should speak to your doctor as soon as possible to rule out anything serious.
Here’s what might cause you to swell down there.
Thrush is an uncomfortable condition that causes itching and swellingCredit: Getty – Contributor
Vaginal thrush is a common yeast infection that affects most women at some point in their lives.
Signs you could be suffering thrush including itching and soreness down there, pain during sex and a stinging sensation when you pee.
It can also cause swelling and inflammation.
Those suffering for the first time, pregnant women, and those who’ve suffered two bouts of thrush within six months should speak to their doctor.
And those with sores on the skin around their vagina, and abnormal bleeding should also seek medical advice to rule out STIs.
Sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia can cause swelling you-know-whereCredit: Getty – Contributor
There are several STIs that can cause swelling down there.
Women with gonorrhoea, chlamydia or less-known trichomoniasis may notice inflammation around their private parts.
Chlamydia is one of the most common forms of STI in England.
Around 200,000 people test positive for the curable STI every year.
NO NEED TO OVARY-ACT There are apparently five different types of vagina… so are you Ms Puffs or Ms Barbie?
In the majority of cases, people with chlamydia don’t notice any symptoms at all.
But others may experience burning pain while weeing, unusual discharge from the vagina, penis or rectum, pain in the abdomen, bleeding after sex, bleeding between periods.
Gonorrhoea is the second most common form of STI in England.
The bacterial infection spreads through all forms of unprotected sex, oral sex, as well as by sharing unwashed or unprotected sex toys.
In women, symptoms can often include unusually watery or off-colour vaginal discharge, as well as burning pain when weeing.
Trichomoniasis is caused by a tiny parasite called trichomonas vaginalis.
Symptoms in women include abnormal discharge that can be yellow or green, soreness and swelling and pain when having sex or weeing.
If you think you have an STI you need to see a doctor.
3. Bacterial vaginosis
These are the colours you need to watch out for in your discharge
Bacterial vaginosis can also cause swelling in your lady garden.
The infection occurs when the bacteria inside the vagina becomes disrupted.
The condition doesn’t always come with itching or pain but can create a strong fishy smell.
It can also cause a grey/white discharge and discomfort during sex.
If you have bacterial vaginosis you will need a course of antibiotics to treat it.
4. Rough sex
Rough sex can cause some temporary swelling down thereCredit: Getty – Contributor
Just like anywhere else in the body, your vagina can swell if it experiences a trauma.
You might not think rough sex is a trauma, but anything that is slightly harsher on your flesh can cause swelling – no matter how good it felt at the time.
You may also experience swelling if you are not properly aroused during sex.
In most cases you won’t need treatment and the swelling will go down on its own.
But if it persists for several days you should speak to a doctor.
The herpes virus causes sore spots and some swellingCredit: Getty – Contributor
Herpes is highly contagious and caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), which triggers painful blisters.
It is spread by skin-to-skin contact – during vaginal, oral or anal sex – or even just a kiss.
There are two types of herpes – HSV1 and HSV2 – which enter the body via the skin around the mouth, penis, vagina and rectum.
Both types cause cold sores on the mouth, genital herpes, whitlows (small abscesses) on the fingers and hands.
The STI can also cause some swelling and discomfort in your private parts, as well as pain while weeing and too much discharge.
If you think you have herpes you need to see a doctor.
6. Foreign objects
Passion Dust glitterbomb capsules should not be dissolved in the vaginaCredit: PR
It goes without saying that you shouldn’t put anything in your vagina that is not designed to go in a vagina.
But, that being said, several recent trends have involved foreign objects in the vagina – including glitterbombs, cucumbers, Vicks VapoRub and wasp nests.
All of these carry with them the risk of infection, which can lead to swelling.
It may also cause pain, discomfort, itching, irritation and unusual discharge.
The bottom line is, don’t follow these trends.
Pregnancy can cause swelling down there as your baby grows and puts pressure on the blood vessels and musclesCredit: Getty – Contributor
When you are pregnant you may notice swelling is a side effect.
As your baby grows it can put pressure on the pelvis and nearby muscles and blood vessels.
This can affect your blood flow down there and cause inflammation.
Cervical swelling can occur from infection or bruising during sexCredit: Getty – Contributor
An inflamed cervix, or cervicitis, is often the result of an STI.
It will cause swelling down there as well as pelvic pain, bloody discharge and spotting between periods.
You can also bruise your cervix during sex, which can cause pain and swelling in your private parts.
Cysts can develop in the vagina, but usually clear up on their ownCredit: Getty – Contributor
There’s a little known reason women may get cysts in their vagina – the gartner’s duct.
The duct refers to the remnants of a vaginal duct that forms in a foetus.
It often disappears after birth but in some women it remains and becomes attached to the vaginal wall.
Cysts can then develop in between the duct and the wall, which can cause swelling.
Cysts or abscesses can also develop in the bartholin’s glands on either side of the vaginal opening.
The glands produce mucus to lubricate the vagina.
They are usually nothing to worry about though and the cysts will go away on their own.
If you experience pain or there are signs of infection speak to a GP.
Cycling can put too much pressure on the vulva, causing swellingCredit: Getty – Contributor
Cycling seems like a healthy option, right?
It is good exercise but all that pedalling could be making you BIGGER down there.
Experts warn the hobby could leave you feeling a “burning sensation” in your vagina.
According to Cycling UK, when a woman sits on a road bike, her vulva – something that is absolutely not designed to be weight bearing – can be required to take as much as 40 per cent of her body weight.
This pressure can cause the vulva and labia to appear bigger and become swollen.
11. Irritation and allergies
Allergic reactions can happen in your vagina, too.
If you suffer irritation or an allergic response down there you will become inflamed and swollen.
You may also experience itching and a rash.
Things like vaginal lubricants, soaps, perfumes, toilet paper, condoms and washing powder can cause irritation of your lady garden.
Even the cut of your underwear can be a problem – think thin lace G-strings that can cause unnecessary friction.

Kids Health Information : Vulvovaginitis
This fact sheet is
available in the following languages:
Vulvovaginitis (vul-vo-vaj-ee-night-is) is inflammation or irritation of the vagina and vulva (external female genital area). Mild vulvovaginitis is a very common problem, and some children will have vulvovaginitis many times. Once puberty has begun, vulvovaginitis usually occurs less often.
In most cases, vulvovaginitis is not a serious problem and it will usually improve with simple steps at home. Usually no medical treatment or tests are needed.
Signs and symptoms of vulvovaginitis
If your child has vulvovaginitis, they may have:
- itching in the vaginal area
- some discharge from the vagina
- redness of the skin between the labia majora (outside lips of the vagina)
- burning or stinging when they pass urine.
What causes vulvovaginitis?
While your child is young, the lining of the vagina and vulva can be quite thin and this can lead to it being easily irritated. Moisture or dampness around the vulva can also lead to vulvovaginitis – this is made worse by tight clothing or being overweight. Another cause of vulvovaginitis is irritants, such as soap residue, bubble baths and antiseptics.
Threadworms sometimes cause or worsen vulvovaginitis. Children with threadworms often scratch a lot at night. If itching is a major symptom, then you may want to treat your child for threadworms. See our fact sheet
Care at home
In most mild cases of vulvovaginitis, you can care for your child at home without visiting a doctor. Reassure your child that they don’t need to worry, as vulvovaginitis is a common problem and a normal part of growing up.
Try avoiding the things that make vulvovaginitis worse:
- Wear loose cotton underwear and avoid tight jeans etc.
- If your child is overweight, seek advice on how to maintain a healthy weight with diet and exercise.
- Don’t use a lot of soap in the bath or shower, and make sure any soap is well rinsed from the vulva. Avoid bubble baths and antibacterial products.
Some people find vinegar baths helpful: add half a cup of white vinegar to a shallow bath and soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Do this daily for a few days and see if it helps.
Soothing creams (for example, soft paraffin, nappy-rash creams) may help settle the soreness, as well as protect the skin from moisture or any discharge, which can be irritating.
You may have to repeat these simple measures if the problem comes back.
When to see a doctor
Take your child to the GP if:
- The vulvovaginitis is bothering your child – the doctor may advise a swab of the area be taken for testing, but the results are not always helpful.
- Your child has a more severe case of vulvovaginitis, blood-stained discharge, or other skin problems – the doctor may refer them to a paediatrician or other specialist for further management.
- Your child has a fever and pain when passing urine – the doctor may want to test for a urinary tract infection (see our fact sheet
Urinary tract infection).
Key points to remember
- Mild vulvovaginitis is a very common problem.
- It may recur now and then, but will improve as your child gets older.
- In most mild cases, no medical treatment or tests are necessary.
- Avoid the things that make vulvovaginitis worse, such as tight underwear and irritants like soap.
For more information
Common questions our doctors are asked
Can children get thrush? How do I know if my child has vulvovaginitis or thrush?
Vulvovaginitis is far more common in children who have not yet gone through puberty than thrush is. If your child has begun puberty, it is possible that they may have a vaginal yeast infection (thrush). It is important to discuss this with your child’s doctor, as the treatments are different.
If my child has a burning feeling when she does a wee, is this vulvovaginitis or a UTI? Should I give her cranberry juice?
If your child is showing any symptoms of UTI, take her to the GP so a urine test can be carried out. Some of the symptoms of UTI overlap with vulvovaginitis. In any case, cranberry juice is not recommended as a treatment option for children for UTI or vulvovaginitis.

How to Ease Vaginal Swelling During Pregnancy
Swelling is a common side effect of pregnancy, especially when it comes to your feet and hands. But there’s one area that can also swell during pregnancy that doesn’t get a lot of attention: Your vagina. If you notice you have a swollen vagina during pregnancy, know you’re not the only woman going through this! Still, we’re guessing you might have questions about why this is happening. Here’s what you need to know, plus how to minimize the swelling and ease any discomfort.
Symptoms of Vaginal Swelling During Pregnancy
Every woman and every pregnancy is different—which means the symptoms of vaginal swelling during pregnancy can differ from person to person. In general, though, you might experience the following:
• Noticeable swelling. You’re probably familiar on at least some level with what your vulva and vaginal area usually feels like. If it’s swollen, it can feel noticeably bigger or puffier, says Frederick Friedman, Jr., MD, associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive science at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. “There may just be a general feeling of swelling or fullness in the vaginal area,” adds Julie Lamppa, APRN, CNM, a certified nurse midwife at Mayo Clinic, which can lead to overall discomfort.
• Bumps. Some women who experience vaginal swelling during pregnancy can have varicose veins surface in their vulvar area, which can cause swelling and a bumpy feel down there, Lamppa says.
• Itchiness. This isn’t the case for every woman, but itchiness can sometimes accompany vaginal swelling, Lamppa says.
What Causes Vaginal Swelling During Pregnancy?
There are several reasons why you might develop vaginal swelling in pregnancy. Here are some of the most common ones:
• An increase in blood volume. Your blood volume increases during pregnancy to help support the growing baby. As your uterus grows, there’s also an increase in pressure of the blood vessels in your pelvis, Lamppa explains. The combination of these two things can lead to swelling.
• Varicose veins in your vulva. Varicose veins are swollen, bumpy veins that develop when valves let blood pool in one spot or flow backward. Just like you can develop varicose veins in your legs, you can also develop these in your vulva during pregnancy, Lamppa says. “These aren’t dangerous, but they can be alarming to women when they suddenly show up.”
• A yeast infection. Yeast infections are common among moms-to-be, and they can also lead to a swollen vagina during pregnancy, Friedman says. “The inflammation that results from the infection can cause more swelling,” he explains.
• Excess fluid. Excess fluid can get trapped in your body’s tissues during pregnancy, and that can cause swelling down there, Friedman says.
How to Reduce Vaginal Swelling During Pregnancy
If you suspect that your vaginal swelling is due to excess fluid, compression or support stockings might help. “There are products on the market that you can buy that give vulvar support,” Lamppa says. (Just check in with your doctor first to make sure it’s okay for you to use.)
For direct relief, Lamppa recommends applying a cool pack directly to your vulva. That should help with discomfort as well as cut down on some of the swelling.
If you’re experiencing vaginal swelling along with symptoms of a yeast infection—such as an itchy vaginal area during pregnancy, accompanied by white vaginal discharge—Lamppa recommends seeing your doctor for an evaluation. If they determine that you do, in fact, have a yeast infection, your care provider will likely recommend that you use an over-the-counter cream.
How to Prevent Vaginal Swelling During Pregnancy
Sorry, but there isn’t a ton you can do to lower the odds you’ll experience vaginal swelling during pregnancy, given that it’s a normal side effect of being pregnant, Lamppa says. However, doing your best to avoid sitting or standing for long periods of time may be helpful, Friedman suggests.
While it’s pretty common, it’s a good idea to flag any vaginal swelling during pregnancy for your care provider so they can help pinpoint the cause and get you sweet relief ASAP.

Chronic diseases: not specified
Hello! I have a problem with severe itching in the labia minora, itching for one to two weeks. At first, I did not attach much importance to this (this was last year, the doctor said most likely a reaction to sweets that itches), then in my soul I discovered swelling of the clitoris and actually one of the labia, I was horrified.After a shower, this problem increased even more, I thought that now it would burst altogether, because it was quite dense and looked as if it had been inflated (and only the bottom side), in the morning everything went away, but the itching is present, until the visit to the doctor only tomorrow due to I can’t get an appointment for work, but I’m afraid my doctor will again say that this is all sweet. And yes it all started not after intercourse, but I live sexually, my partner is constant.

Hello! You must definitely make a smear on the flora – the symptoms are very similar to thrush, and the swelling of the lip could be provoked by the fact that you scratch the genitals, injure them and an infection can get into the places of microtrauma, causing inflammation. It is also necessary to get tested for STIs, as some infections can also cause itching. On account of this analysis, you can consult a doctor, but a smear on the flora is required.If your doctor is against such decisions, make it yourself in a private laboratory. Chronic infections are more difficult to treat, so you should not start them. Health to you!
90,000 After sex, the labia majora are swollen – A week has passed since giving birth. Moreover,
Case at the Institute
Not so long ago we took state exams at the institute. Me and my wife. Due to poor preparation, my wife could fail exams on problems. But fortunately she remembered last year’s classmate who had already passed the exams.Her classmate’s name was Dilorom. I will briefly describe her:
Age 27 years old (me 26, wife 25), fair with red hair with a square, thin up to the waist, but then the torso changes to an attractive ass with straight legs. She shone with optimism and love of life. A slightly sharp face and kind character gave this creature special charm and sexuality. She certainly passed the tasks well for my wife, which I was grateful and obliged to her. That day Dilya put on a beige blouse with tight breasts of 2 sizes, slightly fitting trousers and a neat suit that looked famously on her narrow shoulders.
After the exams, we treated her to a cafe, I didn’t think to think bad about her forms, but she talked with my wife so much that I was quietly turned on and in earnest. Suddenly she wanted to go to the toilet and she left us at the table, gracefully turned to the corner, from the long seat her trousers stuck to her butt and it was possible to find out what panties she was wearing – it was a lace thong that barely covered the floor of the buttocks. Probably Dilorom instinctively found out that I was looking at her and walking she stroked her ass in the hope of peeling off the trousers …By the way, she had been married for a year already.
After sitting for 2-3 seconds, I told my wife that I also wanted to go to the toilet and quietly wandered there. smiled broadly, flashing white teeth and feminine charm. But I pushed her back inside and locked the door. I was seized by a strong lust, I realized that I was harassing a decent, married Uzbek woman who still helped me and my wife.But hormones and instincts sounded their own.
Of course, Dilorom did not expect this and asked, blushing:
What are you doing?
Knowing that right now she would scream and break free, I immediately slapped her in the face, so she sat down on the toilet lid, clutching her ear.
-What you are going to do is not human …
But she charmed me so much that I, like a madman, began to do everything to get her today, although her husband was waiting for her at home.Having weighed out another slap in the face, I definitely led her to submission. The fragile and kind girl did not resist.
I convulsively took out the swollen member and grabbing her by the red hair, fussyly said:
-Suck with Dilorom, quickly, let’s …
She slowly and bashfully reached for the dick and when she began to suck it, tears rolled down to the beat of sliding on the dick …
I already vaguely remember what happened that day, but I do remember that I myself nervously pulled off her trousers and thongs, and fucked her in both pussy and ass.I remember even when she was being torn in the ass, she got up with cancer in bent knees and staggered and her thin white neck, burdened with red hair, hung to the floor and swayed when I hit the dick right in the center of her ripe ass. shedding tears on the lid … Well, then, after washing, she left and ran home. I explained to my wife that her husband called her and quickly called her ….
Then I sometimes remembered this red-haired cutie who made me do whatever I wanted, I still remember how I hardly shoved my cock into her oral passage and called her a bitch when I wet her ass … Once I saw her on the subway, she apparently came back late from work.There was almost no one in the metro corridor. I guessed that Dilorom was returning from duty. Suddenly for her I bumped into her, her reaction was inhibited. She seemed to remember that incident of violence. But she could not scream and run away. Her mind and body did not listen. her. ” I greeted her quietly:
-Good evening Dilorom.
– Dooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo …
-Supposedly on duty?
-Aha … in her eyes one could see fear and inexplicable obedience (like the obedience of a slave and a master).
I looked at her – Dilorom has grown puffy since then, recovered, dyed her hair black, put on tight black boots, tight-fitting trousers. It was late autumn and it was cold. She was wearing a light beige coat. I approached imperiously into a tight to her and without the slightest trepidation and fear hugged her around the waist like his wife. My overconfidence, late time, Dilorom’s tiredness and the violence endured, did not allow her to do something against me and my impudence. She stupidly went where I was dragging her, although it was evident that she timidly resisted.
– Is your husband at home? I asked her, hoping to spend the night with her.
-Yes …, she did not dare to look into my eyes.
-knows that you are returning from work? I don’t know why, but she told me the truth, although she could lie:
-no, I had to work until the morning, but I don’t feel well ..
I guessed why she did not resist me, she has no strength. And it was useless all around darkness and silence. Inspired by the victory, I happily imagined all my fantasies and loudly threw:
-Come to me, relax, rest….
-no, no need .. I’m better to myself, as if she woke up.
-yes ok Dilorom, admit you liked what I did with you in the toilet of the cafe ?!
With these words, I dragged him to his friend. I go to him he is not. He works with me, he is also a doctor. In the hallway I immediately climb with kisses to Dila, on the lips, cheeks, chest, the rest was covered with a coat. A normal married girl is not I could really resist, stroking and then wrinkling her ass through her pants.Dilya likes it, I feel, “Here’s a slut,” I think, I forgot that her husband is waiting at home. I put her on the sofa and unbutton her coat, then her trousers. Two minutes later, she was naked with thongs and sucked my dick. So as not to cum, I ordered her so that she gets up and dance me a striptease.
Dilorom, shaking her white legs, turned in front of me, so that a ripe white ass almost jumped out of the thong. She rocked her booty so that the buttocks flopped and the small thongs could not cover the small red cunt and black anus.I watched her beauty, albeit with animal fervor: her face was painted a lot, her mascara on the eyelashes, it seemed she had been preparing for such a meeting for a long time. For a long time I could not stand the current as my penis cooled down with her cancer and stuck it into the expiring slit of the vagina. Here she is. gasped and laid her head on the pillow began to facilitate my fuck.
– Aren’t you afraid to fly?
-Do not come inside please …
-And if I cum? And then I don’t know I finished inside her vagina.
For half an hour we lay embracing on the sofa, she was silent and did not close her eyes, looking somewhere.I quietly began stroking her breasts, nipples, then went down and began to stroke her anus. I look she tensed a little. I sit down and pound a hole, not even thinking that she will rub her hair.
-And your husband fucked you in the ass?
-No, I don’t allow, you don’t fuck your wife there ?!
-No, although I would like to, that’s why your ass is there. Whores like you should be torn here .. And I ordered her to scold herself out loud when I tear her.
-Oh, oh, quieter Akmal .. Oh, butt hurts, quieter fuck my bitch ass.. Fuck me slut, fuck me slut from the mahalla …
But I got excited about such words, the member entered softly into her ass, slipped there on the feces, probably, her anus tensed, the ring turned inside out, showing the walls of the anus. I was surprised when her hole expanded like a tennis ball. She groaned, fart and shit while she was hard tore in the ass…. Until the morning I swept her in all the holes so that she could not get up, I barely escorted her out of the house….

it is true that I am not the first to create such a topic ((Nevertheless, I am writing … Everything is banal to the point of impossibility: marriage is 12 years old, three children, and my husband does not want sex. I myself am not at the peak of sexual desire: I feed the baby , hormones suppress, but even now, when it would be enough for me (as it seems to me, because there is no reason to check) 2-4 times a month, my husband does not need this.Sex experience of group sex we last had two months ago. I tried to talk to him, in response he closes in or laughs it off or promises that everything will change … And we are all there ((Anticipating possible assumptions about my terrible state after childbirth, I will immediately unsubscribe that I take care of myself, weight 52-54 kg, a beautician, a massage, a hairdresser trying to test a whore and a crowd of guys to watch on the phone – regularly. The husband is proud of the way I look: he makes compliments, loves to “dress me up.” We have good, good-neighborly, alas, not marital relations.Together we go to visit, to cafes / restaurants, outings, etc., together we watch a movie, read, discuss … but there is no sex. It just kills me.
