Vaginal pain

Me and my boyfriend have been in a sexual relationship for almost a year.
However at the beginning I had some pain during fingering and then sex around the top of the entrance to my vagina. We assumed this was because we both lost our virginity to each other.
We carried on by doing things that did not cause the pain and eventually got around it to where we could do things easily. Sometimes I still had pain but that was only as he entered me.
Unfortunately recently he had been fingering me and when he stopped we noticed there was a bit of blood on his fingers and then there was some blood on my knickers later on. (Not an early period or anything because I'm on the pill and had a week or so to go before I had my free week).

Since that point my vagina entrance has been more sore than it was initially and I can't put anything in without it hurting now. This has been the case for a month or so now.

Do you have any idea what this could be? We both still live with our parents so it's not easy to go to the doctors without an explanation.

Thank you for any help it's really appreciated.

Hey Susan,

Thanks for the help. Will give that a try then as i have had the pain fairly consistently for a long time now.

How long do you think I should leave it to heal for before we try stuff like that again?

Hi Anon

Whenever you feel ready sounds about right.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

In general, fingering works fine but you may have been cut a little and because you haven't stopped the activity, your body hasn't had time to heal. So I suggest you give yourself time to heal. Also, make sure his hands and nails are clean (and nails are very short.)
