How to treat vaginal cuts after having sex?

i have these paper cut things around the inside of my lips of my vagina and I've never had unprotected sex,I've only had sex with one guy and I am very safe. I don't keep them but I get them every once in a while. They don't itch or anything just sensative if I'm like rubbing or something..I don't know what it could be so I thought I would ask before I freak

There are a few reasons for your issue:

1. Vaginal Infection can cause dryness or inflammation which leads to cuts
2. Dryness – infection, improper foreplay, dehydration, age factor, hormonal imbalance (diabetes)
- easily prevented by improving foreplay and use of KY gel.
3. Forceful sex can lead to injury.
4. Anatomical abnormalities
5. Eczema
6. History of surgery.

Take your sex slow, make sure you are not allergic to sperm or latex condom .good foreplay and if needed KY gel.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hello Doctor, I am 27 year old and i have a small cut in tip of my penis (meatus). It s a small red cut but i don t know how i got that cut. Yesterday i was swimming at the morning and i had a burning at tip of my penis. Later when i see it properly then i saw that red cut. It burns after like 10 sec after i urinate and cut is at tip from where we urinate. It also burn occasionally when i don t urinate. Also, during swimming i had itching in my balls and i had to stop swimming after this itching and burning in tip of meatus. I think Swimming pool water was also not that good I had protected sex with a prostitute more than 5 months and had sex with other girls after that also. Thanks

Hi. I ve been noticing during sex discomfort in my vagina area. More so feeling as if my lips were being pulled inside. After looking at a video we made it was the case. Tonight my partner noticed cuts near the lips of my vagina. This area was previously sore do to my vagina being stuffed inward during sex. Is there something I can you to heal this wound?

I’ve had rough sex saturday night and tuesday night (today is thursday) and i’ve been very sore. I wore condoms both times and there was no lubrication and was very raw after sex. I have paper cuts on my labia and perineum which hurt intensively. I also itch a bit and it burns when I pee. There is no discharge whatsoever. My old partner was tested for herpes in march and came back negative. but these two times this week were new partners
