Vulva or Vagina? One Is Swollen, and the Other Might Be, Too

Hello Ladies!

You might be wondering why your vulva is swollen. Or, maybe your vagina is the one that's swollen.

First things first: let's clear up a common misconception. The vulva is the external genitalia—it's everything you can see from the outside. The vagina, on the other hand, is the internal canal. With that out of the way, let's get back to your swollen situation.

There are a few different reasons why your lady parts might be feeling a little puffy. It could be something as innocuous as wearing tight pants or working out a lot. Or, it could be something more serious, like an infection or allergy. Let's take a look at some of the most common causes of vulvar and vaginal swelling.

Tight Clothing:

Tight clothing is often to blame for vulvar and vaginal swelling. That's because when your clothes are too tight, they put pressure on your pelvic area and can cause swelling. So, if you've been rocking some skinny jeans or Spanx lately, that might be why you're feeling a little puffy down there. The good news is that this type of swelling is usually temporary and will go away once you take off your tight clothes and give your body a chance to recover.

Allergies or Sensitivities:

If you're allergic or sensitive to certain fabrics, laundry detergents, hygiene products, or anything else that comes into contact with your vulva or vagina, you might experience swelling as a result. That's because when your skin comes into contact with an allergen or irritant, it can become inflamed and swell up. If you think you might have an allergy or sensitivity, it's important to see a doctor so they can help you identify the offending substance and find ways to avoid it in the future.

Infections:

There are a few different types of infections that can cause vulvar or vaginal swelling. Yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis are two of the most common culprits. Both of these conditions can cause itching, burning, and redness in addition to swelling. If you think you might have an infection, it's important to see a doctor so they can diagnose the problem and prescribe the appropriate treatment.

Swollen lymph nodes:

Your lymph nodes are located throughout your body and help fight off infection by filtering out bacteria and other harmful substances. Sometimes, they can become inflamed and swell up due to infection or other illness. This can cause swelling in the groin area (where your lymph nodes are located), which may also lead to vulvar or vaginal swelling. If you have swollen lymph nodes that last for more than two weeks or are accompanied by other symptoms like fever or night sweats, it's important to see a doctor so they can rule out any serious underlying conditions.

As you can see, there are a few different reasons why your vulva or vagina might be swollen. In most cases, it's nothing to worry about and will resolve itself on its own within a day or two. However, if the swelling persists for more than a couple of days or is accompanied by other symptoms like fever or night sweats, it's important to see a doctor so they can rule out any serious underlying conditions. Until Next Time!...XOXO 💖🤗
