I have a small tear in my labia, a little bit like a paper cut. It only hurts when I wipe after going to the bathroom and that is really the only thing that is wrong, no fever, no headache, etc. I had protected sex two days ago, could these be caused by there not being enough lubrication on the condom or something more serious? My friends who have herpes said it doesn't sound like that's what it is, but could it be anything else? Thanks!
