My boyfriend and I were having sex. afterwards I got into the shower and realized that I had a swollen ckitoris. This wasn't the first time it happen. And after a while it returns to its normal size. He claims that its due ti arousal while I say its due to rough oral sex. Who's right? Why? And if no one is then what is it?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Swollen clitoris after sexual intercourse/contact could be due to the engorgement as a result of increased blood supply at the time of intercourse or even due to injury/inflammation due to rough handling. The exact cause can only be made out after careful examination. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
