anytime a guy fingers me, the lips of my vagina, and pretty much everything on the outside (clitoris, inner and evern on the outside where the hair grows) gets all swollen and like, a little red. it's all puffy and almost feels a little numb... what could this be??? [Confused]

Then a woman is sexually aroused, blood rushes to the genitals and causes some swelling. this is NORMAL; without it, erections would not be possible. yes, women do have erections, too.

if the redness and puffiness is painful or itchy tohugh, then that could be an infection. Otherwise, what you describe should be part of the package [Smile]

Are you up to date on your STI screens?

Also, has your partner washed his hands prior to sexual activity?

When you go for testing, ask the doctor about your symptoms.

Other than that, maybe consider changing the soap your partner is using or utilizing gloves? You might have some type of sensitivity to something on his hands.
