Im a 21 yr old virgin but masturbating. Few months ago I felt burning pain on my left labia minora whenever I urinate or as simple as just spraying water over my labia minora after urinating. At first, I thought maybe it's just a post-masturbation know. But after some time, the pain remained. And then, I thought maybe I was having some vaginal pH imbalance so I tried cleaning my vagina with feminine wash and sometimes vinegar once in a while.. but still nothing happened. So I inspected my vagina and what I've found are minor cuts (straight thin cuts) on my left labia minora that are causing me pain... What does this indicate? And what treatments are available? Pls help me! Thank you.

Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.
I don't know. Could it be that your nails are causing these minor lacerations to your vagina during masturbation? Or were you using a razor down there? Latex gloves and KY gel will help if the former. Either way do not fret. They do not sound too serious.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
