Sore after dry sex
Posted on: 09/08/2010
I notice sometimes that my vagina becomes dry after having sex for a while and sometimes it makes me sore. Is it possible to get small bumps or itching around the entrance of the vagina from rough, dry sex?
Dry sex is really hard on your vaginal tissue, creating little tears and making it is easier for you to get sexually transmitted infections. Try using a little water-based lubricant on the skin below your vagina to avoid the tears and the soreness.
