Low Lubrication: Hello Janet It is hard to tell outside of a pelvic exam after intercourse. But one possible cause could be due to fine tears in the walls of the Vagina after sex without enough lubrication. After sex, the semen might aggravate the irritated vaginal walls and cause pain. You could try more lubrication by longer foreplay or KY jelly.

No.: Sex should not be painful. Pain during sex could mean an infection, an anatomic problem, endometriosis, or possibly vaginal dryness. If you are experiencing burning and pain after sex (called dyspareunia), you might consider seeing your doctor to evaluate if there is a problem.

Lots of lubrication: You may have an abrasion, essentially a friction burn. Also, with vigorous activity, you might have some bruising. Be sure you are well lubricated, either from foreplay or a water-soluble lubricant (e.g., KY jelly). Also, be sure your partner is gentle enough not to harm your fragile genital tissues. Finally, if you are sore "down there, " you might refrain from activity until you are fully healed.

Natural Healing: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing will occur rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Dressings and ointments are of no value there. Avoid further trauma to the area and let nature take it's course.

See your doctor: Burning of the vulva and perineum may signify a bacterial or fungal infection. This might require antibiotics for treatment. There are a variety of skin conditions that can also present this way. An examination & possible culturing is probably the approach to take when these symptoms occur.

Pubic hair: (not vagina) Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after >
