perineum cuts after sex

after i have sex w/my boyfriend, i have these cuts on my perineum.   It looks like paper cuts almost.  i think it may have something to do w/his penis being a bit girthy, does anyone else have this problem? also, im having vaginal discomfort afterwards if we have sex for a second time. it's almost like a burning sensation right at the vaginal opening. It could result from not being lubricated enough but i am lubricated and it just doesn't make sense to me. help!

this happened to me even with lube as well. I got some "hydrocortisone" cream from my dr. & put it on the area for about three days, a couple of times a day. no sex. after that, it's only come back a couple of times. then, i would just repeat. it seemed to work for me. i hope it works for you!

omg thanks! is the "hydrocortisone cream" over the counter or was it something that you had to have a prescription for?

i'm only responding to the hydrocortizone cream....you can get it basically anywhere and do not need a prescription. its a multi-purpose cream. sort of expensive but again, many uses.
i have heard in other posts in the past about these paper cuts and someone suggested a diaper rash ointment like desitin.

have you had a recent OBGYN/annual appt. about this?

do I have to wait for the cuts to heal before i use the cream?

As far as the burning sensation is concerned as separate from the cuts, I would watch that for either an infection (yeast or otherwise) or an allergic reaction if you are using condoms.  If it doesn't change soon, that one I would see a doctor about for sure.

no, thats actually the point of using the cream...to give you some relief.

I just very recently noticed the same thing and I first thought I was spotting a bit but when I checked it was what would appear as tiny little paper cuts causing some very minor bleeding and very little discomfort. I also felt as though it was my partners size and possibly the position in which we had sex. It seemed to be gone the next day and no problems since. I would imagine you could probably just try using a little baby oil or vaseline if you dont want the expense of special creams. Personally if this does continue I will most likely just use neosporin and talk to my doctor about it. Good Luck!

Thank god i am not the only one suffering from this.  I have had this continously now for 6 months.  Every time i have sex with my boyf i cannot have it again for at least a week as the cuts and entrance to the vagina are so sore.  We have tried KY Jelly, baby oil to no prevail.  Any other suggestions other than hydrocortisone?

omg! i also have the same paper cut issue...ive had them for a while. they would go away fpr a couple of weeks and then come back. I havent had sex with my boyfriend in a really long time so i assumed it wasnt that. i wouldnt even get them after sex, they would just come and go..im really scared though.. im going to try that hydrocorizone cream to see if it works. and w/b soon...ThAnKs
