How do I stop getting cuts or tears at the bottom entrance of my vagina?

Whether it be tampons, fingers or sex and no matter how much lube I use or if I’ve just taken antibiotics for an infection I get cuts every time. I just want to know if this will ever go away. It’s not rough or anything like that so I don’t understand why I’m so easily cut. I’ve read about people experiencing this after child birth or the menopause but neither apply to me. I’m in my 20’s and I’m wondering what is wrong with me

Hi, have you discussed this with a doctor? You might have some underlying condition that makes you more prone to cuts (in other words, makes your skin more sensitive there than average).

Ugh, that sounds a pain, literally and figuratively.  I agree with Annie that it is time to see a doctor.  There is something called Vulvar Granuloma Fisuratum to look into. It's related to vulvar lichen schlerosis.  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/lichen-sclerosus/symptoms-causes/syc-20374448  This article describes it.  It has various symptoms and you describe some of them perfectly.  They have a hard time knowing what causes it but it seems to be related to an overactive immune system or hormones. A doctor needs to see it.  They might prescribe an ointment (coriticosteriods are common) to treat it.  There are other things they use as well.  But I would suggest seeing your doctor.  Let us know.
