I notice that they tend to happen near my period(more moisture?) or after/during
sex. I use NuvaRing, which causes a light discharge during
the month for me. My Gyno, who I love, told me that the tears we fairly common in women, and that if it didn't heal with antibiotic ointment, or if they got worse, she could put me on a steroid cream to help the skin stretch a little more. She also said that would be a last resort for her.
