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.

Not normal: Dispareunia or pain on intercourse including burning is more usual during intercourse, although might only become evident after ejaculation when the thrill and excitement are waning. Are you using spermicidal jelly or lubricant? Might you be allergic to your boyfriend's semen?Pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis and interstitial cystitis are possibilities. Suggest you confer with gynecology.

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.

Well: It isn't necessary to shave the pubic area from a health perspective. The tissues near the vagina are very tender - hope you are not trying to shave yourself in that area.

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 >
