I have had no sex in a while (husband works on an oil rig)

Resolved Question:

I have had no sex in a while (husband works on an oil rig) then lots yesterday on his return, some of it was quite rough. I woke today with a severe pain urinating and what looks like two ulsers on the inside of my labia minora. Could you shine some light on the situation for me, I'm experiencing quite a lot of pain and worry. Thanks.

Hi and thanks for the query.This is due to friction and a rough intercourse. Not having sex for a few months can make the vagina a little less receptive in the first few instances, so one should be careful. Start on an anti inflammatory like Ibuprofen 200 mg thrice a day, keep taking the Sitz baths (sitting in a tub of luke warm water) and apply lidocaine gel on the ulcers four to five times a day. The gel is available OTC in pharmacies. Next time, I suggest that you use lubrication for the first couple of times you are having sex, after a long time.Hope this helps.Please do leave a positive rating for the service.Best.
