Vaginal tearing

Most women experience this at some point in their lives, and it’s not as dramatic as it sounds. Vaginal tearing is just the term for tiny little cuts in the vagina that occur during sex. These can cause a burning sensation when you pee, or just general tingling down there.

What to do

Vaginal tearing often happens because you’re not lubricated enough for penetration. Asking your partner for some more foreplay ahead of time, or just buying some good lubricant, can help with this. However, if your dryness down there is extreme, see a doctor.
