So, I posted last night that I had found a tinge of blood on toilet paper after peeing. Turns out, my boyfriend fingered me after this, and more blood came out after when I urinated. It looks like blood from a fresh cut and sort of falls in drips that I can see in the water. I have a small cut on my inner labia and wonder if I could also have one inside. There is a very SLIGHT burning with urination, but it's no different than the sensitivity I normally feel after sex and I'm not in any type of severe pain- sitting, walking, etc. I feel perfectly fine. This all happened last night after having had fairly vigorous sex the afternoon of the day before.
I should also add that when I woke up this morning, there was no fresh blood in my urine, though it was slightly tinged. I peed again later and it was clear and only after I had a bowel movement did a couple of small drips of fresh blood come out. It now seems to be clear. I don't really have an urge to urinate frequently, etc., and I really suspect a cut, but I wanted advice on a course of action- should I wait and see if it clears up in the next day or so or is another course of action preferable? Thank you.

So, since you do have a visible cut, and think you may have another one you can't see, I strongly suggest that you avoid sexual activity involving your vulva for a few days until things heal up. more physical activity is just going to exacerbate the injuries, just as would happen if another part of your body was injured and the injury got rubbed or irritated in some way.
Certainly, blood in your urine could be a sign of a urinary tract infection, but since the bleeding seems to be directly connected, timing-wise, to sexual activity, and you're not feeling any other discomfort, it seems to me that you can probably wait to see if things heal up on their own.
