Pain & swelling after period
Posted on: 05/14/2008
Hi. I just finished my period yesterday and had been wearing the wrong sized tampon for the past few days. I also wore a size super plus even after i finished my period. It was very painful to take out. Then i realized that my labia became very swollen and red. It was very puffy on the inner part of the labia and vestibule. It especially hurts at the base of the opening of the vagina. It now hurts to touch or sit down or even put my legs together. Please help!
If this does not clear up in a few days, please see your doctor.
