Hi.. Im afraid of what Im experiencing now, I get this white secret coming out of my vagina more than I used to. And there are these sores appearing outside on my genital parts. I discussed it with my Bf but he said it just might be a virus, coz we had flu at the time we were into each other. He was putting his fingers and licking and we haven't had intercourse, so we thought of that. And he's my first sexual partner and doesn't have any history of STD. PLease help me... I need your advice. Thanks...

White discharge is pretty normal, even if it's in larger amounts than you're used to seeing. If it turns green or dark yellow, or has a fishy odor, you may have an infection, which is something to worry about. Otherwise, this is fine.

The sores, on the other hand, indicate an STI, the most likely being genital herpes. Do not let your partner come in contact with them - which means abstaining from oral and manual sex - until you can get yourself to a doctor or clinic and get tested/looked at.

Is there no possibility that the virus from the flu might be the coz of the sores?? coz we had been there with our fingers and genital parts are so vulnerable with this kind of viruses.
Also, he does not have any kind of STDs, never.

Thanks for the advice.

Has he been tested for STI's? Even if he had never been in sexual contact with anyone else, some STIs are transmitted in other ways. Oral herpes, for example (cold sores) can be passed from a grandmother to a grandchild through a kiss, or from sharing drinks with someone who has them. So unless he has the results of his latest STI screen in hand, you can't really trust that he has none.

And If you have open sores, It is very important for you to get them checked out as soon as possible. It would make it much easier for the doctor to verify what they are, and prescribe the right course of action to help resolve them.

(To, just to make sure we're clear here, the flu does not transfer to the genitals at all, so you can rule that out as the cause of these sores. It's far more likely you're looking at a potential STI here.)
