HI I am 56 years old and when I have intercourse my vagina straight away feels like it is burning and gets sore. It then swells up and for at least a week after is swollen, sore and dry. Also at the bottom of my opening (near to my bottom) the skin splits and bleeds. I started to get mild problems a few years ago and have been using ovestin cream and now changed to a suppositories. The doctors did all tests for any infection etc but found none. I have had the herpes virus for about 4 years. I asked to see a gynacolagist but was refused, as the last doctor I saw examined me and said my vagina looked fine for a woman my age. Please help me I don t know what to do I am so depressed about this I feel they think I should just put up with it

A few days ago I had vigorus sexual intercourse with my longtime boyfriend multiple times in a short period of time. I noticed some pain and inflammation during but I just brushed it off as normal from the amount of friction during sex. After we finished, I noticed my vaginal area was very red and swollen and painful. The next day I noticed slight itching. Today, when I went to wipe after using the restroom I noticed what looked like tiny pieces of dried toilet paper so I wet a towel to clean it off and when I wiped I noticed it was the skin on my vagina and it was just peeling off. What is this?? And why is it happening??
