The next day after me and my bf had sex I experienced a swollen vagina the next day. It was also dry and itchy. The 2nd day its less swollen but its still really itchy and starting to bleed a little. THe bleeding does not occur when I am peeing. Also it burns when I pee a little. Any help would be greatly appreciated from what I have searched everywhere else this is what I got:
The walls were stretched out a caused cuts which were infected.

Additional info: We did it 2 times the night before it got swollen and it was a bit rough.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could suggest inflammation, injury and irritation of the soft vulval tissues due to rough sex. The itching and bleeding could also suggest possibility of infection. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for your symptoms without examining you. Visit your doctor at the earliest for further examination along with vaginal swab/smear test to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
