Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms (my vagina and urethra area swollen and hurts when i walk and when i sit) suggest vaginal infection and/or injury.
It is not uncommon to have these problems after having intercourse. Do not hesitate to visit your gynecologist for an evaluation and examination along with tests to confirm/rule out/identify infection and start you on treatment as indicated.
Early diagnosis and treatment is the key to avoid complications like extension of infection to bladder and pelvic organs and pain.
