you could have a laceration in your vaginal wall.

was the sexual activity rough or prolonged?

this can cause vaginal lacerations or trauma or strained muscles in your pelvic floor

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It definitely doesn't feel like its inside of my vagina, more just near the outside
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
In between my vagina and my leg

is it normal to pull muscles while having sex? Its never happened to me before and it didnt seem like it was too rough but I feel like thats the most logical answer
Expert:  Dr David replied 11 months ago.

you could have pulled a groin muscle

if you don't stretch your groin muscle, you can strain your groin muscle

this can happen with sex

since your legs can be open during sex.

you may benefit from gentle stretching and strengthening of your groin muscle.
