My clitoral hood has been swollen and extremely sensitive

Customer Question

my clitoral hood has been swollen and extremely sensitive for a couple of days now and it hurts to do anything (walk, run, stand, sit tightly, etc.)
JA: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Gynecologist can help you best.
Customer: i think it is from sexual activity, but it has not gotten better and has almost gotten worse (more swollen, more sensitive, more restricting in my daily activities)
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?
Customer: no
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Gynecologist about your situation and then connect you two.
