Fingering: It can cause minor cuts or abrasion inside the delicate mucosal wall. It can also happen with forceful intercourse or rape.
Dr. Albert Pizzo
Family Medicine 60 years experience
Sore vagina: The fingering may have been too rough and caused mild trauma. This is not dangerous, however you should request that this sexual activity be more gentile. Be sure to learn about staying safe with sex in order to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease.

Yes: Has it always been that way? New partner? Is he particularly "big" for you compared to prior partners? Obviously sex is about friction, so some soreness can certainly be normal. If it persists, get checked by your obgyn good luck.

Many options: It could go from an abrasion to fungal infection to ( don't panic) herpes. Is there a rash, have u had it in the past, what is your hormonal status? Does it itch? It's just kind of broad question with many options. If persistent make an appt. Good luck.
