Vaginal "paper" cuts

I experience the equivalent to a "paper cut" at my vaginal entrance on intercourse, which then burns and stings for a few days afterwards.  I have tried cortisone creams, lubricants, pessaries etc, with no results.  I have been offered Fenton Procedure surgery and wonder if anyone knows if this may help as I don't want to have unnecessary surgery!  I believe I have vestibulitis and wonder if a vestibulectomy as well as Fenton Procedure will help?

Hi,
Does this occur with every different partner you have intercourse with?  The reason why I ask is because I've only had these "cuts" occur when I slept with the same person, never anybody else and I was told by my doctor that I was just having an allergic reaction to his semen.  I know how bad they can itch and then when you itch them they get worse!  Mine usually took a couple of days to heal, sometimes a week.  I know it burns like mad when urinating as well.  However, I've never heard of the procedures you mention and am going to go look them up.  Sorry I could not offer any valuable advice, just wanted to share my experience and offer some support :)  Good luck to you.

Thanks for your reply.  I have the same partner - married for 34 years - but have only started really experiencing this in the last few years (post menopause) and it's getting worse.  Thanks for looking the procedures - I'll be interested in what you come up with.  Take care.
