Hi...

This is my first visit here. And I have been searching for answers/suggestions on what could be going on with me. I have read where tears can mean herpes..But I am hoping that is not the case...

The tearing is around the vaginal opening..but not in the actual vagina area...Ok..i don't know the areas actual terms..But the first time this happend..My husband had been overseas for 6 months came home, and we had lots of frequent sex. Which Obviously I hadn't been used to. So, I was hoping that the tear that time was just due to un accostumed use? Well, the husband is fixing to come home again. And I would like to avoid this uncomfortable tear again if at all possible. I just wondered if this was due to dryness, Or the fact that maybe things shrunk a little during his absence? I do know,I have a major problem with dryness. So we typically use a lubricant. Please, and suggestions would be great. I want this to be a great homecoming for him, and don't want to put the breaks on our sexual relationship.

Thanks for any help you may offer..

If you think you can have herpes, get tested for it.
