Brief Answer:
Trauma can lead to such a picture.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The cause of the pain and the discomfort is most likely due to trauma during intercourse. Also, after a delivery or abortion, the soft parts of the genitalia are so sensitive and get traumatized easily and should be handled with care. This gets lessened after some time and as such there is no need fear about such incident every time. Please maintain genital hygiene. Use nutritional supplements, good diet and adequate rest to allow yourself to recover.

If you are afraid to handle the sexual contact, you can try abstinence for sometime until you heal well.

Hope your query is clarified. Please feel free to contact for further clarifications. I will be happy to help.

regards,
Shanti.V.
