Hi. I have feeling really bad down there. My vagina and lips are swollen they burn and itch. Also they hurt a lot. They are bright red. The "bridge" between my vagina and anus is also the same. After having sex which wasn't a good idea i was so swollen it was painful to put it in. I was spotting a little after. What's going on.?

Welcome to ehealthforum

The symptoms reported as burning,itching can be suggestive of infection.You might require vaginal smear test to rule out the cause.Regarding the spotting after sexual contact it can be due to cervicitis,dysplasia,pelvic infection etc.It would require a detailed clinical examination of the genitals so that appropriate treatment can be started.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation and required prescription medications.Till then folloe hygeinic measures and avoid intercourse.
Take care!
