I have a problem similar to the one that Jase Watson described in his post. Everytime I have sex, there's a bit of skin that gets incredibly irritated, no matter how much lube my boyfriend and I use and what position we've tried. It's right below the vaginal opening, and the best way I can describe the area is near where the top part of a fourchette piercing would go (if that makes any sense). I'm pretty sure it's not hymen tissue because I've been sexually active on and off since I was 14 (I'm 18 now), and it's not just inside the vaginal opening, it's below it.
I have a feeling that it's just the way that my vulva is. I'm eventually going to go see a doctor at my uni, but until then, does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do about it? Or maybe some personal experience if anyone's had the same problem..

If it's not inside the vaginal opening, but below it -- between your vaginal opening and perineum -- than it's not likely about the hymen.
Is this irritation happening only with or just after sex? With all kinds of sex or only some?
