Hi. I have a vaginal abrasion after having intense rough sex with my partner. How can I reduce the pain I have while urinating ASAP? Does Vaseline help?

Hello Ronnie23,

An abrasion is basically a scraped area on the mucus membrane of vagina that is definitely not a pleasant thing to go through. Lack of lubrication can result in friction or irritation on the skin, thus causing a minor injury. An abrasion can happen at any point of time and from just about anything. It may or may not bleed, but it certainly takes time to heal down.

An abrasion/scratch in the vagina wall can cause a lot of uneasiness. Such a problem can be accompanied with tenderness as well as swelling. And in case you do not pay attention to the abrasion and leave it as it is, the infection can set in, and can make the problem worse.

Ronnie23, before applying anything, including Vaseline, check with your gynecologist's office.

Dab a little coconut oil to the affected area. It is said that the coconut oil will remove the discomfort, moisturize the skin, and work on removing the abrasion within a matter of days.

You can apply Calendula ointment, as Calendula acts well in healing the abrasions.

Avoid sexual intercourse until you have completely recovered. To facilitate circulation of air in
the vagina, it is best to wear cotton panties.
