Swelling and bumps after sex
Posted on: 03/12/2010
I am 16 and have only had one partner. We were both virgins(I'm sure). After sex, my vagina gets swollen and I get small bumps on my inner labia that do go away. Is this normal? Is it just rough or dry sex? Please help
Well, if you are not using a condom, try using a condom and put a couple drops of water-based lubricant on the outside (tip) of the penis. If you are using a latex condom, then try using a female condom--which is not latex, again with a little lubricant--and see if that helps. If not, time to chat with a doctor.
