Our expert says:
You will need to have a sexual health check (this doesn't need to be with a gynae, it can be with a GP running a well woman's clinic - a lot less expensive and just as good for an initial screening). It is not uncommon that deep thrusting can cause some discomfort at some times and not at others, but if you want peace of mind, do go for a check up. As long as reasonable hygiene standards are maintained (e.g. clean hands, no touching vulva after touching anus), then 'fingering', or manual stimulation, should not cause any problems; it is a safe way to enjoy sexual intimacy.
