I'm not quite sure what it could be, if it could be irritation from soap or what, but I noticed the past couple of days one of the "lips" (I'm not sure the exact medical term) of my vagina was swollen, and it hurts when I walk, when clothing rubs against it, even loose fitting cotton panties. I do have sex regularly, but I when I noticed this, I had been on my period earlier that week, so I don't think it has to do with any kind of infection from my partner. Also, I've just about finished taking the first month of birth control pills for the first time, and have gotten a few days into the next set. I have no other symptoms, other than the swelling and irritation. Does anyone have any idea what this could mean?
