I want to know if my condition is serious or not and if it needs medical attention. I am 25 years old and after having sex with my current boyfriend (I haven't had sex for almost 2 years)I felt pain and saw that I was passing blood pus too.I couldn't even walk properly so I had to force myself even though it hurts so much.It also hurt when I passed urine and I could also feel a swelling at the cervix.So I want to know if my condition needs medical attention or it is just that I haven't had sex for a while or we hadn't used lubricant?
Thank you.

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Your problem could be because of dry vagina, which got injured during sex. This observation is based on the fact that you feel a need for lubrication, whereas the foreplay is usually sufficient to amply lubricate the vagina. There are many problems that cause vaginal dryness such as hypothyroidism, Sjogren’s syndrome, vaginitis or inflammation of vagina, dermatitis of skin around vagina, condom allergy, or allergy to soaps and lotions. Low estrogen is another cause.

Sometimes the foreplay is not adequate for the female to be aroused as the arousal time of the two partners is different. At times no cause is found and water based lubricants are the only solution. Also, you need to rule out fungal infection and STD. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
