If applied how long after application is it safe to touch the area to which Lidocaine was applied without transferring the numbing effect?

Yes it may be used vaginally. My obgyn prescribed it for me to help with vaginismus (painful intercourse). It caused burning sensation initially, and after a few minutes felt more numb. My doctor recommended waiting fifteen or more minutes before intercourse to lessen any transfer.
