Symptoms: Light blood
When i used the bathroom it was burning
It is evident from the history that you have been sexually inactive for quite some time and when you had sex with your partner , then you have suffered vaginal abrasions or lacerations which bled. These abrasions are possible when there is lack of adequate lubrication in the vagina before or during intercourse causing frictional injury to the vaginal mucosa.
This cut/ laceration would burn on cleaning and the only way to treat is to allow self healing and application of petroleum jelly inside the vagina over the lesion thrice a day for at least 5 days. It should heal by then. Also important is to avoid intercourse during this period of treatment for adequate healing.
I hope i have answered your query,
wishing you good health,
