Our expert says:
It would be very unusual for you to have tearing of the muscle from intercourse. It may be that your perineum has stretched to accomodate intercourse and this is entirely normal. If you have a burning sensation during sex, try using KY jelly as a lubricant. It may be that some of your symptoms are related to the haemorrhoid. If surgery has been suggested, it may be better to have this before you fall pregnant.
I can't tell about tearing durring labour, but if you are 'looser' it would be less likely that you would tear.
