Ok, so.... I had sex with my boyfriend earlier today, (this wasnt the first time). But afterwards my inner labia was and still is completely swollen.

Im thinking there could have been some rubbing but it isnt painful and wasn't during sex either.

Im kinda freaked out by it so any help would be good!

It could be that you've got some vasocongestion going on ("blue balls" - yep, women can get it too!). Basically, when you get aroused, a lot of blood moves into your genitals, which causes them to swell. Sometimes it takes awhile for that swelling to go down, and if you're not experiencing any pain, I'd say just wait it out.
