Evaluation: Its time to get evaluated by a gynecologist. This could be a lesion near the opening of the vagina, it could be infection as well. Might be a good idea to have the area evaluated a few hours after protected sex, so your gyn can see the area more clearly. And I do mean protected. Most gyn's do not appreciate the smell of semen during an exam.
