Well, all females are different, and yours could just "swell up" more than usual, or it could be vaginal hyperplasia. Also, keep in mind that the heat cycle last appowx. 21 days, and most females are largest between the 7-14 day period.

***"General information on Vaginal Hyperplasia
Vaginal hyperplasia is an exaggerated swelling reaction of the vaginal tissue to estrogen during the proestrus and estrus phases of heat. Should the swollen vaginal tissue become too swollen and no longer be contained within the vagina, it may bulge out, appearing as a tongue shaped mass, through the vulva, which is the external female genital organ. The mass may prevent the dog from mating and affects mostly young female dogs of the larger breeds that have not been spayed. Vaginal hyperplasia is thought to be mainly caused by estrogen stimulation as well as dogs having a genetic predisposition towards having this condition. Severe hyperplasia may lead to prolapse."

I couldnt tell you without seeing it but my first apbt was a female and i was going to wait to spay her and do it after her first heat, only cuz thats what i was told by the vet cuz she was already 7 months old when i got her.

Anyway she had went into heat at about month 8. The hormones were so strong that the normal bulg you would see got really big. Looked like her in sides were coming out. Needless to say she was prolapsing ... vet had to do an emergency spay.

Only advice i can give you is if you havent seen it before or if a breeder thats familiar with it cant tell you your fine then get her into the vet. The sooner the better. Better safe then sorry.
