I've been having extremely painful intercourse lately and afterward I've noticed a tiny bit of blood when I wipe after my ritual after the deed urination. Well today I decided to check things out down there. When I looked at my vagina I noticed that the edges are ruffle-y. I'm not sure if that is normal after having 2 kids, but it certainly didn't look like that the last time I checked. (the last time I checked was right after the birth of #2 when the MW told me I had a split labia and it didn't heal together.) So...Is this normal. Does anyone know what may have caused my vaginal opening to ruffle? (it looks like a balloon that's had the folded over part, where you blow it up, ripped off and it's all ridged.) I think the pain is mainly from lack of lube, which is odd because I'm 17 weeks pregnant, but not abnormal for me. Anyways. probably TMI but I have to ask somewhere. And I'll be asking my MW next week as well.
