I have vaginal and anal pain and also pain in the vuval vestibule . the anal pain started first could there be any any link?
Pain: If there is no obvious inflammation or infection present, this type of discomfort may be from inflammation/irritation of nerves in that region. A viral process like herpes may cause this even without the typical eruption. If symptoms persist consult a gynecologist for evaluation and a thorough rectopelvic examination. In the meantime try sitting in hot(not too hot) water for relief. ...Read more

So today I discovered a medium size tear between the inner labia and the vestibule.It seems as if we used condom with not enough lube? can this be?
Labial tear: Ouch!!. Given your age - inadequate lubrication either natural or provided by lube can cause "dragging of the tissue especially with a condom and cause tears. I would suggest refraining from sex for at least a week to allow that area to heal - should heal rapidly - keep it clean and use an antibiotic cream and next time - use lube! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a red spot on my vaginal vestibule. I've been routinely tested for all stds and have tested negative. What could it be?
Hemangioma?: Most bright red spots on the skin, including the vaginal area, are hemangiomas -- a cluster of blood vessels sometimes called a blood vessel mole (but not really a mole of any kind). They are harmless and normal, so leave it alone. No STD causes such a problem. Show it to your health care provider next time you have a routine exam. In the meantime, don't worry about it. ...Read more

Burning around Vestibule when wiping after urination or cleaning in the shower. Stings when touched. No discharge, swelling, redness or anything else.
Vaginal burning: Vaginal burning without any signs of infection or a growth suggests one of two causes. Number one, the use of colored not white toilet paper when wiping which cause burning/irritation from the colored dye. Number two, a harsh soap or shower gel that interacts with the vagina which has a mild acidic pH. Most soaps are extremely alkaline except Dove, Caress and Ivory which are suitable for the area ...Read more
