WAY TMI question about my lady parts - HELP!

My left labia is swollen, red, and very painful. I noticed it was sore during foreplay/intercourse yesterday, and afterwards it hurt BAD and it is now quite swollen and painful. I just noticed I also have a tender and swollen lymph gland in my left groin area. I know I should see a doctor, but has anyody experienced this before? What did you do about it?

  • You need to call your dr right away. Swollen lymphs indicate a bad infection.

  • It could be something as simple as a really deeply in-grown hair that is infected. Especially since it's only on one side.

    Soak in a hot salt water bath. Call your doc. Drink plenty of fluids to flush your system. Hot compresses with salt water may help too. After soaking it, feel around for a hard lump in the skin that might be a hair.
