I have been having a reoccuring cut between my vagina and and anus. I was exremely anxious that it could be an STD after googling the symptoms of it for hours and so went and got a pap smear and blood test done (i specifically asked for a herpes test too) which came back negative. It is very painful when i wipe and it seems to come back often. Just a small tiny cut. What else could this be?

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The symptoms that you are having commonly occurs due to anal fissure. In anal fissure, there’s a rupture of the mucosal lining of the anus and this usually causes a lot of pain while passing stools.

It can be looked for only after a local examination and investigations. Please do consult a surgeon and get yourself examined. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
