Hi Welcome to

It is not a boil. Boil has collection of pus. It could be minor laceration from trauma from intercourse. It will heal in 5-7 days. If you think you are at risk of sexually transmitted disease, I will recommend consultation with Gynaecologist. Keep the are clean. Apply Neomycin cream or powder.
