Last night, my boyfriend and I got involved in some heavy petting. After a while, something started to hurt me a bit. I mentioned that to him and we adjusted and continued along our merry way.

This morning, I noticed a small cut on my vulva, right by my vagina.

My question is: should I apply some sort of antibiotic or infection fighter? Or should I just believe in the powers-that-be within my vag and let her heal herself?

(I hope this is the right place for this...I'm new. I figured this would be the best forum for getting reliable advice)

If its a small cut I really wouldn't worry about putting anything on it. I would just leave it alone. If it gets worse, then I would go see your GYNO.

The best thing to do when receiving manuel sex is have your partner trim his/her nails down, or have him/her wear a latex glove (w. lube.) This should prevent future cuts or abrasions.
