I have started a recent committed relationship with someone who lives in another state. After seeing him last weekend, I have suddenly been experiencing itching and severe discomfort of my vagina. We did have sex, and there were times I wasn't completely lubricated before penetration. Because we don't see each other often, we did have sex multiple times in one weekend - more than I am normally used to. I am prone to yeast infections and thought that might be it, though I haven't noticed any thick discharge (yet). I am due to start my period in a few days and am on the pill. The itching gets worse after I irritate it, say after wiping after the restroom or getting dressed. If I do try to scratch or rub, my labia get very swollen and red, and the itching is almost unbearable.
This evening, before taking a bath, I noticed three small bumps in a row and one standing alone on the outside of my labia. They are not "painful" except for the itching if irritated. I have finished my third shot of Gardasil in the last few weeks or so I had a pap smear within the last 6-7 months and nothing turned up. I am due again in a few months, but might consider going earlier if needed. In the meantime, any ideas or advice are so, so appreciated.View Thread
