Pain after Sex: Am I Just... Dry?
 
Hi all! I have been having an issue for a long while now and am hoping there are others here who have experienced this and have been able to soothe their raw-feeling bajingo...

I have been sexually active for several years, but in this past year, sex has become painful. I am in a committed relationship. Now, the act of sex is not very painful - it's the aftermath. I always feel really raw after sex, even if it is a short session and I was lubricated. Everything feels raw. I always go to the bathroom after sex, but that, too, is a painful experience: I do my stuff, then wipe and - ouch! It stings! The paper will sometimes have tiny blots of blood on it... It's uncomfortable to go to the bathroom and even sit for the whole day after!

Could I just have a dry vulva, at 24 years old? I drink lots of water because I get recurring UTIs and have taken natural approaches to preventing them, but it doesn't seem to be enough. I went to the doctor this past week and she said I looked very healthy, but was red and swollen in some spots near my vaginal opening. I tested negative for all sorts of vaginal/uterine infections: urinary, yeast, strep b, etc. and have tested negative for STDs. I just feel raw and tight and dry! No itch, no burn: just a raw feeling and that I lack any elasticity down there...

Is there a natural way to moisturize my vulva? Also, can anyone suggest a nice, all-natural lubricant for us to use? We use KY, but I think it may be part of what is causing the irritation. My doctor had no answers!

Thanks for reading!

Have you tried Au Natural Lubricant? It is made by Surprise parties. It is all natural and really helps with lubrication. It runs about $11.00 and can be ordered online.

have you been using condoms? Maybe your allergic to the condoms or lubs. I got like that too when my boyfriend and I were still using condoms plus some of the lubs we would use would leave me red raw itchy and in pain. Just a thought wish you the best!

Hi. You might have Vulvodynia which can cause burning, itching, pain during and/or after sex, dryness, aching, stabbing pains, etc. A lot of Drs. don't know what it is, so you could look for a pelvic pain specialist in your area. Good luck. Sue :)

Hi! :)
I understand what you are going through as that is what has brought me here as well. I am experiencing problems as well with the soreness after and was hoping to find some answers myself though I am not sure my problem is caused by the same issues. I have tried many of the lubes out there and none seemed to work or cause major issues later. I have found a great new product sold by Pure Romance it is called Whipped and comes in many flavors. This is stuff is a miracle worker....it is not water based. Though I am still having problems this stuff has made a huge difference for me. Hope this helps.
