The Liberian Billboard Health and Fitness Desk– Every once in a while, you may notice that things seem a little different after you have sex. When that happens, it’s natural to wonder if everything is ok or if it’s a change that warrants medical attention.

1. Your vaginal area becomes puffy

The vaginal area being puffy is really common. This is actually a sign of arousal that can linger even after sex is over. The spongy structures that go up each side of the penis and fill with blood, creating an erection, also occur in women. But in women, those structures sit behind your outer lips, a.k.a. your labia majora. When they fill with blood during arousal, the vulva appears puffy and swollen.

2. Vagina burns when you pee

While it’s tempting to assume something is seriously wrong, but it could be due to little cuts that women can get during sex. Maybe your partner’s pubic hair was abrasive or things got a little rough—whatever it is, it will usually go away on its own.

3. Itchy vagina

Post-coital itchiness could be due to a few things like irritation from friction while you were getting busy, a sensitivity or allergy to the lube you used, or an issue with latex condoms. The first one is no big deal and will gradually subside. But if you find that this is happening often, try switching out your lube to a hypoallergenic variety or use non-latex condoms and see if it makes a difference.
