My boyfriend and I recently had sex. Now my labia minora is spread open.
It's been 4 days and it hasn't closed back up. Is this normal? It also feels weird when I use the restroom! Help! I'm so scared! I don't know waht's going on!

Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out.

The labia minora does get spread open after the sexual intercourse and there’s no point in worrying about the same. There shouldn’t be any pain or discomfort while passing urine.

In case, you have that, then you need to consult a gynaecologist as you might need further tests to rule out UTI.

I don’t think you need to worry about the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
