  • No need to worry...Sometimes from what I was told the pressure from delivery makes them swell...If it is bothers you call your doctor other wise put an ice pack on it and it should take the swelling down. My doc in my home town warned me of this.

  • The pressure from delivery can make everything down there swell for a while after. It's nothing to worry about. It will go down. If you have burning or something like that, then check it out. But it sounds like normal swelling to me. Hang in there-it's one of the very glamorous effects after childbirth :)

  • Everything down there is going to be swollen and irritated for awhile. The hospital gave me Tucks medicated pads (pads that has witchhazel) The had me layer the diaper sized pad over my underwear and three of the tucks pads on top of that going from front to back.. try something like that. I wouldn't be too worried unless there is a bad odor or funky discharge. Remember, it does take around 6 weeks for everything down there to heal so don't be too surprised that there is still swelling after only a week. Hang in there :)

  • I think you should see a doctor i dont think it is something for you to worried about maybe the fabric you wearing on might do that and take a lot of orange juice and berry juices
