My boyfriend and i about four days ago had sex in a hot tub after words i could tell my inner wall of my vagina was tender. I told myself i would just not have sex until it got better. However, that was not the case and now it is really tender to the point that almost burns. I have not done anything sexually for two days now and the pain has not lessened.

My question is there a way to reduce the pain or speed up the healing process?

Oh and both have been tested we don't have any STI's

I'd leave your vagina and vulva be for a little while longer when it came to any sex.

Likely, part of the issue was that not only does water wash away natural or artificial lubrication, you also had chlorine in there, which is very drying stuff. That can also cause a vaginal imbalance.

So, if your vulva or vagina still feel raw to you now, I'd check in with your sexual healthcare provider to be sure you didn't wind up with a yeast or bacterial infection. That burning feeling specifically suggests that something is amiss and might need treatment.

How bad is the burning? Any other symptoms?

Hey, happy to be here, be of help, and keep you from a world of heinous itching! [Smile]

(Next time? It is really best to keep sex to dry land, or at the very least, out of chlorinated water.)
