I went to sleep and my vagina was fine then

Patient

Q: I went to sleep and my vagina was fine then I wake up and my vagina is swollen. What do I do??

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

It is unlikely for the vagina to develop a sudden swelling that has got noticed after a nap.
It could mean an acute reaction, for example, an insect bite, which can develop into a sudden swelling. Any food or cosmetic allergy applied over the area, new soaps or lotions can also cause a swelling.
Kindly consider consulting a gynecologist for an examination and specific medications for the swelling.

Hope this helped.
Regards
