So, this probably won't be a problem anymore since I don't plan to be monogamous again any time soon, but when I WAS monogamous and had sex (intercourse) sometimes without a condom, and my partner ejaculated inside me, my vagina would feel kinda..irritated afterwards. It felt great for me when he came, but not after.

The thing is, it doesn't seem like it could be an allergy since it feels totally when when semen is in my mouth or stomach. It's just my vagina. Any idea what's going on?

It can happen with a particular partner. I was quite sensitive for a while, to the point where I would sometimes get congested or a tickle in my throat after giving oral sex or would get a red blotch on my skin (say, shoulder, not even a mucous membrane) if it came in contact with semen. But until I noticed the vulvar reaction, I never made the connection about the skin or nose/throat as it didn't happen until many years had passed.

We decided to go back to using condoms for a while. I think the polyurethane ones used with a silicone-based lube provided the most comfortable experience for me, and then later discovered a latex allergy in my family history, so that could have something to do with it!

After being far more diligent with waiting for full arousal and more liberal with the lube, we haven't been using condoms and happily, the problem hasn't recurred.

So, it *is* possible, though rare. If it bothers you, no reason not to just keep using condoms. Easier cleanup, less risk of irritation... I personally like it better all the way around.

Yep, and again, I'm planning to keep using condoms anyway, I'm just curious as to why it happened. And I doubt it's the particular partner because he's the guy I gave the most head to, and swallowed, and no irritation in the mouth/stomach. So who knows.

But thanks for the response [Smile]
