Question for the girls about swelling


Recommended Posts

Hi All, I survived my first OB. I may have had a mild second one as well (some mild symptoms). Since the beginning of November when I believe I was first exposed to the virus, the left side of my clitoris is swollen and somewhat convoluted. It looks nothing like the right side which is smooth and not swollen. Have any of you dealt with ongoing swelling like this? It went down for a few days and then swelled right back up.

Thanks, MsAlio. I am going to try some good ol' ibuprofen and see if it helps. Had you specifically asked your dr. about it? Or were you prescribed ibuprofen for something else and noticed it helped your genital swelling?

I'm in the middle of my 1st OB, and the swelling I noticed around my clitoris happen to be a blister that hadn't formed properly. I did the ibuprofen and also made sure to give it a good clean/soak with pinetarsol. I'm not sure if thats available outside Aus, but its a total natural antinflamatory showergel that soothes all of your rashes, itches burns and etc. The swelling has completely gone, and now I'm just waiting for the rest of the pain to go away!

My first outbreak cleared up a week ago, but I am still swollen and puffy around the whole area. I guess the swelling thing could last a while... I think there's also swelling inside because I have some trouble urinating. I thought this was supposed to be a virus that acts up once in a while, not a constantly uncomfortable feeling. I've been taking naproxin solium (aleve) for the swelling but maybe ibuprofen will work better.

Thanks, Expat. I hope you are feeling better very soon. I have a pressure sort of feeling inside. I think I am swollen internally as well. Take good care. (((HUGS)))

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
