Burning feeling after sex
My boyfriend and I have been going out for six months. He is the first sexual partner I have ever had, and recently we stopped using condoms because I went on the pill. We are both aware of the consequences of stopping the use of condoms, but we both get more enjoyment without them. The problem is, without them, he has a hard time getting into me. I have plenty of natural lubricant inside of me, and am always aroused whenever we attempt sex. However, it is hard for him to get into me without any added lubricant. Recently we did not use lubricant, and after sex I had a burning sensation. It disappeared within the hour.
Is the burning sensation that I experienced merely a result of too little lubrication, or is it something more serious?
The fear of pain will often cause a woman to unconsciously tighten the opening of her vagina. This can result in painful penetration. Relaxation and plenty of lubrication will help. Safe water-soluble sexual lubricants, discretely packaged, can be purchased in most pharmacies.
