Post Pain in Vagina lymph nodes?

The last time my girlfriend and I had sex was on the 4th, of July. She told me tonight(the 6th) that her 'lymph nodes' around or in or whatever, the vagina were swollen and sore. says the pain increases when pressure is applied.

Niether of us have S.T.D.'s. We've grown up together and haven't slept with anyone else. What could be the cause of her 'swollen' and 'sore' lymph nodes? thanks.

Well normally when the lymph nodes are sore and tender (painful)to the touch, it means that your body is fighting some sort of infection and the lymph nodes are hard at work. She should be mindful for the next few days and try to notice if things get better. If not, then I would suggest she see a dr. to find out what the problem is. Hope this helps some.
Good luck

She's been telling me she's getting sick. Could this be a sign of pregnancy? She's on the pill, and I've never came in here. I've always used a condom, or pulled out(although I know it's not the safest or most effective). She has a loss of appetite and feels 'sick'. what's up?!

There aren't any lymph nodes in the vagina, but there are some in the groin, on the inner thigh, on either side of the genitals.

If case these are what she's referring to,lymph nodes that are *painful* are usually a sign of infection (painless ones *can* be a symptom of cancer). So, she should wait a week or so, and if the swelling and pain don't go down, she should see her doc. to find out what she's got.

Timber, you kind of answered my question. Where are the lymph nodes located on the female body?? (groin area) I've noticed a lump in my left lip (labia majora)... that wouldnt be a swollen lymph node would it?
