Thanks for this questionFirst of all you need to abstain for a while.The second problem is likely that you have vaginal dryness.As we age, we lose hormones. Men and women both.In women, this causes a lack of estrogen to the vaginal tissues.This results in dryness and irritation with intercourse.I would see your doctor and ask for vaginal estrogen.It is called vagifem or estrace. It will help a lot.

Hi and thanks for the query,I have a different answer as you are concerned about current swelling and soreness after having sex.You can decrease the swelling and pain by using cold compresses or ice pack wrapped in a cloth to put over the area. Sit in a tub of cold water. You can use lidocaine 2% gel, it will cause numbness in the area and if swelling still persists you can take antihistamine tablet like benadryl.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner by my name DR. Uzair.Wish you good health.Wish you good health.

Many women do not appreciate the dryness. It might seem like you are doing fine but the lack of estrogen causes a fragility of the tissues. I strongly suspect this is the case.Ice packs and gel will simply cover up the underlying cause
