Condoms&amp wetness
Hi , Bf and I have become sexually active with penetrative sex for the last 7 months.I am on the pill.However we still use condoms at times.Only the times we do use condoms , I find that my entire vaginal area..lips &  clitoris remains " plump"  and I stay wet for 5-6 hours.Three frinds on mine use the same type of condoms and they have not exerienced what I do! We have tried diffrent brands of condoms too..but still the same for me.Its not causing any problems , just little embarassing in gym showers / change rooms. Has anyone got any mature advice on this?

It might be that the friction and rubbing during sex with the condom could contribute to the swelling. Furthermore your body might be trying to compensate for the friction by excreting more vaginal fluids. It might be worth it to apply extra artificial lubrication an see if that has an effect. If you continue experiencing discomfort you might want to approach your medical doctor about it.
