Vulvitis: inflamed vagina, vulva and labia explained
I'm 14 and still a virgin, but my boyfriend fingers me and gives me oral sex. For a couple of weeks, my vagina has been itchy and red, and it hurts when I touch it. I don't feel comfortable talking to my mom about this. What should I do? Friction and pressure from fingering or oral sex can cause irritation in the sensitive genital area.
Yeast Infections and Sex: What Men and Women Need to Know
Irritation usually refers to pain, itching, or swelling in the vaginal area. It can affect any part of your vulva, including your labia , clitoris , urethra, and vaginal opening. Folliculitis occurs when one or more hair follicles are inflamed or infected. It can happen anywhere that hair grows. In the pubic area, it typically results from shaving, waxing, or other forms of hair removal.
There are a few possible causes for itching after intercourse, like dry skin or an allergic reaction. Some sexually transmitted diseases STDs can also cause itching that may be aggravated by intercourse. Vaginal itching after sex that only happens on occasion is probably nothing to worry about. Not enough lubrication during intercourse or too much friction could cause vaginal itching.
