my boyfriend and I had sex for the first time two nights ago. It was brief only because I wasn't getting much pleasure out of it, and it was hurting. Ever since then, I've been pretty sore down there. In retrospect I think we should have used a lubricant to help the situation which is what we plan on doing next time. But the pain I am feeling is a burning itching sensation, just on the outside of my vagina. it was really really itching last night and it was extremely uncomfortable. so I am wondering why this is? my boyfriend and I are both STI free. I am worried I may be allergic, I don't think to the latex condom because I have never had a problem with latex before.. but possibly the lubricant on the condom? I should also say I don't think I was "stretched out" enough for what we tried to do and it hurt a lot at the time of penetration. Is it normal for there to be a itching or burning after the first time having sex or is something else going on?

You may be right, it could be an allergic reaction. It also sounds similar to a yeast infection, which can be itchy and triggered by stuff like this, and can be triggered by lube. Given that you're still itching, I feel like it may be something more like that. It's less to do with it being a first-time than it is something that can happen whenever we have vaginal sex. And is related to to the acidity/alkalinity of what goes in.
In either case it's a good idea to go ask your doctor gynecologist.
