Abrasion during intercourse, is this common?

I have this abrasion kinda wound after sex at the same spot which is on the bottom part of the opening of my vagina. After this one time I had sex (I'd say rough), it was very painful and had slight bleeding. (This has never happened to me so I went to see the doctor too, suspecting I might've caught something but all tests came back negative) Since then, everytime I have sex, it happened. The pain wasn't noticeable at all but I wanted to know if it happened again so I examined that part myself and there was this redness again. Is this normal? I'm only in my mid-20's and I don't know if lubrication is a problem. My partner is pretty huge though. I'm thinking about this problem everytime we get together and I can't really enjoy it. Please help.

Re: Abrasion during intercourse, is this common?

This is very common and even more common considering you have a boyfriend with a large penis. This exact thing has happened to me (and my partner's penis is huge!) BUT it doesn't continually happen. I believe this would be a problem due to not enough lubrication, or your not letting yourself heal. Then again, you said that everytime you have sex that you worry about this and aren't enjoying it. When you get turned on you become looser so that it is easier to have sex, but if you are worried about this then it will take away to the getting turned on reaction and make it even tighter around his penis causing more friction and possibly the tearing.

First of all, let yourself heal before you begin having sex again. Tell your partner what has happened (he should be understanding about waiting till you are all healed) and then once you are no longer torn, ask him to be less rough when you get back at it. Try getting him to go down on you before you begin intercourse, and then try to be relaxed and enjoy every second of it. If this doesn't work, you might need to try baby steps. Instead of having sex, (now I know this will sound weird,) let him finger you. First with one finger, then two and then three. Make sure you are comfortable with the one you are doing before you move on. This should slowly stretch you out and prepare you for his size. ALWAYS BE SURE YOU ARE VERY LUBRICATED!

That is all I can think of that could possibly help you out. If you try all of this and you still come out unsuccessful, I suggest going to your doctor and asking what they think. Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK!

Re: Abrasion during intercourse, is this common?

Hey, I have this exact same problem (although I've never bled). It would leave me sore to the touch after sex for a few hours too. I'm a tiny girl and my boyfriend is rather well endowed.

I just went to the doctor because lubrication didn't seem to be helping. She (the gynecologist) said that that part of your vagina takes the most abuse and pressure during sex. I did notice that sex on top rather than missionary didn't hurt as much. Unfortunately I tense up too now worrying about the hurt which can make sex not fun <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">. The doctor did prescribe an estrogen cream which I've been using for about a week. This is because I'm on birth control pills which can limit the amount of estrogen I produce naturally which can lead to thinner skin..making it more delicate down there. We're experimenting with the estrogen cream to see if that will help, because if it does it means I will need to switch birth-control pills.

I'm still working through this problem too so I don't have any advice to give you except to not have sex if it hurts because you won't want to get tense about having sex like me.

Re: Abrasion during intercourse, is this common?

Thanks a lot! It's really a comfort knowing that I'm not the only one! I read in another thread that you kinda need time to grow into/adapt to your partner's size and I've only started having sex with this guy so may be it'll get better when I'm more used to his size?
I hope so. Anyway, thanks again and I'll try to relax and take it step by step.
