Sometimes after I have sex my vagina is really sore and burns to pee and will usually stay that way for a few hours. I've been with 5 different partners since I've lost my virginity and I havent had this problem before. I've been with my current partner for 6 months and it happens pretty often. I'm wondering if it is because he is rather large and my vagina is very tight and very sensitive? Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could suggest possibility of vaginal infections, lack of lubrication or vaginal dryness, injuries, allergy to seminal fluid proteins, allergy to latex or chemicals (if condoms or spermicide are used), etc. If the symptoms have been persistent or if these recur, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and investigations to look for the underlying cause for your symptoms. Treatment as appropriate (based on the examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you in controlling your symptoms. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection and avoid having intercourse both are on treatment course.
Take care.
