Hi mary,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm not a doctor, so I cannot give medical advice, but I still may be able to help you.

Yes, it is possible to get cuts on or around the vagina. They can be caused by any number of things, including rough sex (as you described above, particularly if you were dry at the time), shaving accidents, bacteria infections, or yeast infections and herpes both cause fissures (little tears) in the skin. It should heal on its own, but if you are concerned about it, or if if doesn't go away in a timely manner, I would recommend you have a gynecologist look at it. Otherwise, it's probably not a big deal.

If you're concerned that it's herpes, you may want to check out the Genital Herpes Symptoms page to see if you have any other symptoms.

Hope that helps!
