Why has my vagina been burning for over a week after 2 hour sex? is it normal? did he do it to hard? was it the wrong hole? how many holes do I have?

It’s normal for your vagina to feel irritated after having sex for a longer time than you’re used to, especially if you’re not using any kind of lube. But sometimes irritation can be a sign of a yeast infection or other kind of vaginitis, or even an STD. That’s why it’s a good idea to speak with a doctor or nurse about what you’re feeling.

Here’s some info about your body and its openings. If you have a vagina, you most likely have two other holes near it — the urethra and the anus.

The urethra is the closest to the front. It’s the hole that you pee out of, and it’s not possible to insert a penis into it because it’s too small.

The vagina is the middle opening. It connects to the cervix and your womb. It’s the part of the body that blood comes out of when you get your period, and where you would give birth out of if you ever do that. It lubricates itself when you’re turned on, but many people find that using water or silicone-based lube helps make vaginal sex feel more comfortable, especially if you’re going to have sex for a couple hours.

The anus is the one furthest back, where poop comes out. Some people find touching or inserting things into the anus can be pleasurable. Most people need lubrication (like a water or silicone-based lube that you can buy at the drugstore) to enjoy anal sex, so if your boyfriend put his penis in your anus it would make sense that you would feel some irritation a week later.
