I am 6 weeks pregnant. Since having sex 5 days ago, my inner labia have been very ouchy--toilet paper feels like sandpaper!! Although I began feeling a little bit dry midway through sex, I didn't think it was any big deal; now I wish I had insisted on some extra lubrication. I'm surprised it's taking so long to recover. Is this because of pregnancy? Is there something I can do to soothe it? I've been putting on a little coconut oil because it makes the burning stop so that I can tolerate ordinary friction with my clothes. Now it only bothers me when I use the bathroom or wash; haven't tried further sexual activity.
Any help or reassurance would be much appreciated!
