Vaginal Splits? Cuts? Scratches?

Sometimes when I wipe too hard with toilet paper I get some “cuts” in the labia areas ... which I notice cause when I pee it will sting not too much though.
I also experience these “cuts” and im not sure what they’re called but they aren’t deep at all. When I engage in sexual activity (oral) .. not sure if it could be cause by the hairs on my partners face... though I always notice that I have a cut that goes parallel above my clitoris hood that is red and a little stretched but I don’t know if it’s from me stretching my legs too widely?? It doesn’t hurt during the scitiviree or after but I notice it when I pee or wipe afterwards ... and I will keep track on how it looks after a couple days but I notice it just notice it’s alwahs there or reopens when too stretched?? I’m not sure why that occurs.. am I just sensitive in those areas or am I just susceptible to getting this? Worries me for future childbirth that I’ll tear!

Hope to get some advice/diagnosis on what this could be. I’m not comfortable going to the doctors as this isn’t an emergency just a curiousity as I’ve noticed it for awhile now.

Hello Linapower

Thank you for writing.

You may be very sensitive in your genital region so as you said, you wipe "too hard" and this can cause discomfort. Be gentle. Wash with a soap that is gentle on the genitals - Summer's Eve is one option.
This sensitivity should not be a factor in childbirth.

We cannot diagnose anything over the internet but mention this to your doctor on your next visit. In the meantime, wash yourself gently and advise your partner to also be gentle.
