Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here.

May I ask if you notice any lumps, or is the whole labia swollen?

Ask Your Own OB GYN Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The whole labia swollen

It is possible that either there was some trauma (like something happened to that side that caused it to become swollen) or exposure to something that irritated you.

Is it red at all?

No redness just swollen and tender on that side

Like I pulled a muscle or something

have you been sexually active recently?

any heavy lifting or straining of the muscles there?

Ask Your Own OB GYN Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I was recently active.
Yes I lift at work.

you may have strained a groin muscle in the area which can be quite painful

heating pads and gentle groin stretches could help

I'm in need of relief.. I've been sore since Saturday.. Never experienced anything like it
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
What will help with the swelling? I just bought some Epsom salt

you can take a hot epsom salt bath

you can use heating pads and alternate with an ice pack on the area wrapped in a towel

are some groin stretches you can go.

you can try taking tylenol and ibuprofen 200-400mg to help with pain

when you lift, make sure you lift with your legs and not your back and keep your legs shoulder width apart.

Do you know how long it might take to heal?

everyone heals differently

groin muscle pulls can take a few weeks to a few months to heal.

eating more protein and fruits and vegetables can help muscles heal in your body

Ask Your Own OB GYN Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No sexual activity until healed?

best to avoid sex until it heals

the groin muscle is really next and close to the vagina.

you may not like sex with a sore groin muscle
