I know is hard to diagnose over the internet and stuff. But me and my boyfriend don't get to the doctor that much,but we try.But every time we have sex lately it hurts when he enters. I am fully aroused and wet and i've been having sex for a while.so it shouldn't be because i only had sex once or twice. Then even when i haven't orgasmed yet,my clitoris gets real sensitive but painful and he can't touch the outside as well as the inside of my vagina cause its very painful. It doesn't exactly burn but it kind of stings and burns a little bit.And i am getting really nervous and worried. is this normal?could it be an std?

Are you using condoms (it might be a latex allergy to the condoms)?

Have you recently started or switched to a different brand of lube (it might be an allergy to one of the ingredients in the lubricant)?

Have you noticed any other changes in your health that might indicate some kind of infection?

Sounds like you need a trip to the GYN, girl. Yes, it could be an STD or STI or a vaginal infection like BV or a yeast infection. Any kind of recurring soreness, stinging, burning or the sort of pain you're decribing is reason to not pass go, not collect $200 and get to your gynecologist or sexual health clinic.

When you're there, do be sure to be honest about being both sexually active and having had unprotected sexual intercourse (or other unprotected activities).

Your other symptoms may or may not be raleted -- but do bear in minnd that having one infection or illness taxes your immune system and makes you more prone to get others. So, for instance, if you have an STI, you're more likely to catch a common cold than you would be otherwise.
