Conditions with symptom: 'tears'
For the past 18 months - 2 years maybe even longer, I've been suffering with vaginal tears. These can happen from something as simply as moving awkwardly, wiping or sex. It's getting to the stage now where I'm uninterested in sex as I know I'll be in agony for days with the tears. I have also noticed I have several scars from the tears - I'm sure this is also causing me to be less sensative!! I could really do with some help or guidance from someone who may have had the same - it's driving me insane
The same thing has happened to me and about the same length of time...i thought it was psychological because i did'nt want to be touched anymore and found it very hard to become aroused. I went to a clinic one day who reffered me to a psychosexual doctor which didnt help at all. Now things can happen alot easier and i do want them to but i tear very easily also. Can manage foreplay but not intercourse. I wasnt sure whether there was cream or something that i could use?
I have had the same thing for the past two years where it tears ever so slightly on the entrance. It occurred during sex and got worse and worse. The scar tissue has built up and its just far too sensitive to do anything now-even using tampons hurts. I went to see an NHS gyno and they said to drink water and use KY Jelly which didn't work. After much frustration I decided to pay to see a Bupa gyno who instantly knew what was wrong. There isn't any particular reason why it happens but as soon as scar tissue builds it easily tears again. He has explained that I need a 'fentons procedure' which he basically cuts away the scar tissue and sews me up in such a way that im ever so slightly 'wider' down there and hopefully once I get this done I can be normal again! Hope this helps.
I've tried to have sex with my boyfriend before, but had to stop because of tears that appeared in my vagina-they were really painful and i think its because he is really big. I've tried to loosen myself up by using fingers and then toys to try and stretch myself but I still keep getting tears, will I ever be able to have sex normally without it being painful??
I'm 23 and I have been sexually active since I was 15. 4 weeks ago me and my girlfriend were about to have sex. As I penetrated her, I felt a sharp pain coming from my penis. I pulled out and notice I had red bloody tears or stretch marks on my foreskin where it had been pulled back. I have been applying sudocream every now and then to aid the healing, but because I'm having erections in the night and washing the head in the shower, the scabs covering the tears are re-opening. Really don't wanna go to the GP's so your advice or experiences would be helpful!
Hey there. My boyfriend appears to be having the exact same problem. He's been sexually active since about 17, he's now 19. We've been together for about a year and a half and this problem keeps cropping up every few months and goes away again. Does this happen to you? He has told me that his foreskin was very tight when he was around 13 years old but he began stretching it himself slowly whilst in the bath. He also says that when we begin to have sex, its very painful. He's been applying cream to it which seems to help slightly but it hasn't gone away like it usually does. It's not dirty as he's able to clean it properly in the shower but it is very sore for him. The things you've said in your comment are pretty much exactly the same as what he's going through; it would be awesome if anything has happened to you which would help us. =]
When my fiance and I have sex, quite often his penis tears and we have to stop. He is circumcised, and the tears are always around where the head of his penis meets the shaft. We've tried lube, but that hasn't stopped it.. it did stop a few years ago but we don't know why.. then it started happening every now and then a few months back, and now it seems to be all the time. Are we just being too rough? Or could he have an actual problem? He's currently carrying a bit of extra weight, he's also quite hairy along the shaft and we don't use condoms. any advice would be appreciated!
I have similar problem. Then I discovered by applying moisturiser on my penis regularly, the problem went away.
This sounds really sore, I had this problem when I was about 9 when we were showing willies at school, in the changing room, ( you know as all small boys did) - another boy punched my erect penis and the head split behind the rim. This was split and sore and pussy for weeks, I applied TCP ointment ( still available) As regards your problem, are you using enough lube, I find Johnsons Baby Oil very good. Virgin Olive Oil is even better as it is thicker and provides more of a glide. It is possible the circumcision scar is very delicate and is becoming detached with sexual activity. In thise case you might wat to have the site revised, which basically means they do it again, better. Hope this helps.
Hi. I'm a male aged 42. about 6 / 7 years ago I suffered with tears in my foreskin making it very incomfortable when having intercourse the first cream.prescribed did not work but then another doctor prescribed a strong steroid cream which seem to work fine 3 years ago I had tears again.I had moved aerea so was at another GP. they refused to prescribe the steroid cream, said it was an overkill. I ended up on Dactacort ? took ages for the tears to heal and months without intercourse. now I have a different but I suspect related problem. my foreskin tip is discoloured almost as if its bleached butore frustrating is its extremely tight when erect causes pain during intercourse. doctor has advised I try and stretch without tearing . he says foreskin tight to low down to consider circumsition but I've been doing this for months with no joy. I'm frustrated but don't want to go back to the doctors. what would you advise. Thanks Mark
I have trouble pulling my foreskin back when my penis is erect and isn't erect, if I pull it back the smallest little bit when erected it tears my foreskin causing pain and scars. I'm 15 and it hurts because I cannot have hard sex. I don't want to go to my doctor about this am I'm shy about things like this but it's beginning to really annoy me. I used to be able to do it at the age of 11 or so when I couldn't ejaculate yet but ever since 11/12 I haven't been able to pull it back at all and when I do it tears and scars. I do not even want to consider circumcision so that's out of the solution. Any kind of help is much appreciated, thanks.
are you sure its the skin that tears? it may just be dead cells tearing off the skin when you pull back, this happened to me... when i wasnt told how to clean properly, it hurt taking it all off, but it was worth it
I'm currently taking the pill as part of treatment for PMDD, and the hormonal change has cause me to become quite dry, even when aroused. I have an allergy to lubricant, causing my skin to become red, irritated and burn for 8-9 hours after contact. However After several minutes of penetration I will start becoming very wet, the way I did before the pill, But when this happens I get the sensation that the corona of my partners penis is made of hooked velcro, and digs in and tears thousands of paper-cut like tears along my vagina as he trusts. We have tried every position and pace that we and my doctors can think of. Does anyone else feel this sensation? (19 years old, Recently taken several STI tests, all clean)
I have had this exact same problem for a few months now and it took me a while to work out that it was because of the pill. I put off going to the doctor for so long but my boyfriend finally made me go because it had put me off sex completley. Even when I was wet, sex felt similar to sandpaper, and after about a month I didn't get wet because I dreaded the thought of it. My smear results came back clean and the doctor said I was perfectly healthy down there except for some obviously sore skin. Even though it had come back negative- twice- she gave me the cream they use to treat thrush. It has pretty much cleared it up, but it took a couple weeks before I could have sex without pain again and it comes back if I dont use the cream every few days (if you actually have thrush you only have to use it for two weeks and then not at all). It's kind of gross and I hate applying it, but my doctors have no other solution for me. I briefly came off the pill and I noticed the difference after a few days which was when I realised the cause. But this particular pill has been the only thing to help pretty severe periods, so it was one thing or the other. The only thing it really needs is a good moisturizer, the problem is finding one. (Also 19 and clean)
For the last 4 months, I keep tearing during sex. My GP wasn't interested so I went to the GU Clinic where they were much more helpful, and said that it was my fourchette which had torn, and that the tear that was there that day was very deep. It stings for weeks each time it tears, and bleeds a lot. The GU Clinic doctor, while very sympathetic, said that it was a difficult thing to treat. I was wondering if you have any advice. Even things like sexual positions to avoid. Also, what could help the tears heal when they are there? Each tear takes up to a month to heal, so I'm managing to have very little sex, as each time I have it, it takes a month to recover!
Whenever I have sex the skin just below my penis head rips and tears in places. I have a girlfriend and it only usually happens when i don't use a condom, if i do use a condom the problem isn't as bad but it can still tear slightly if sex is riguous... i have been to the GUM clinic, had a full swap test and blood tests and the results were negative. I know i still had a problem so i returned ans saw another doctor, who thought it may look slightly like herpes. I had another swap test and yet again it came back negative. I was given aqueous cream to help sooth the problem as it does heal after a few days but once i have sex without a condom again the 'cuts' or 'tears' return! any help would be grateful! thanks
does she have a coil or iud? if the strings are too long they can scratch you when you're having sex. also if she's not that wet while you're doing it the friction can cause similar issues.
thanks for the advise. She doesn't have a coil or IUD. I do know that when she has been checked before the nurse has said her 'tube' isn't straight and bends to the side, the nurse has also said she has a very small 'tube'. Could this also be a problem when having sex? Even when she is wet (sorry to be vulgar!) and we have sex without a condom I often still 'tear' or 'cut'. any advise would we great, thanks
im 14 and ive started to notice that near the bottom of my foreskin there are small rips/tears and im dont know what they are or how they were caused. Could someone help me out ?
