Hi, I was wondering if you could help me. After sex I saw that above my vaginal entrance it looked like there were three holes above my vaginal entrance. When I touched the area, sensitive to touch not actual holes. I guess the closest word to describe it is dimples? Sex was not painful at all, my partner is well endowed . So I don’t know if this is normal or something I need to get checked out. Please can you advise?
This is a good question and what you are experiencing is totally normal. During and after orgasm it’s normal for the vaginal walls, labia and clitoris to become engorged along with the glands that contribute to increasing our vaginal lubricant. These glands can become engorged to the point where it has a dimple-like appearance. Once there is resolution of your orgasm they should decrease in size and not be as apparent. If you are not sure if this is the case, I would suggest taking a picture of it the next time this occurs and bring it to your next appointment with your primary care provider or your gynecologist to get their opinion as well
