Sexual intercourse

Skin irritation in the vulvovaginal area is not uncommon after sexual intercourse. If you are sensitive you should apply a skin cream to the area beforehand and possibly afterwards as well. If the vulvar area and the vagina itself are too dry, a gel or cream can help (e.g. Dr. Wolff's Vagisan Moisturising Cream)

Avoid

Appropriate Intimate Hygiene

  • If your skin is sensitive, apply cream to your outer intimate area beforehand, possibly also afterwards (e.g. Dr. Wolff's Vagisan Moisturising Cream)
  • For your male partner: intimate hygiene before sex, particularly around the foreskin
