i had sex with my boyfriend for real for the first time last night. it was really good we used a condom and neither of us has ever had sex before eachother. so we both know we are disease free. i left his house and my labia was hurting real bad. so i checked it out and it was very red and reallllly swollen. it's very tender and its huge i dont know what to do. i thought it'd go away over night but it didnt. i dont know if it makes a difference but we had sex in the grass. pleeeeeeeeeeease help asap! im freaking out!

For starters, if you'd contracted an STI, you wouldn't have an immediate symptom. And if neither of you has ever had ANY sort of sexual contact with others (including things like oral sex or manual sex), then yes, your risks are LOW, but they're not nonexistent. If either of you has ever had that contact, they're higher, and in any case, you can't know you're free of STIs without having had screenings.

That said, it's typical for the vulva to swell during sexual arousal and sexual activity. But if this didn't go down in a couple hours, then I'd suggest you check in and see your doctor to find out what's going on.
