could be a variety. could be an allergy. could be an STD. could be a raging yeast infection. However, we're not doctors and we're not able to give your a pelvic exam, so if you really want to treat that itch, please see a doctor. And if it continues to itch, definitely hold off on sexual activity because that'll just make it worse. and if it's contagious, you might pass it to your boyfriend.

also, do you know what a dental dam is or how to use one? Check out Safe, Sound and Sexy on how to play it safe, even for oral sex.

yep. STDs, allergies and yest infections can go on during a period. and they get worse if you don't treat them. so please go see a doctor.

Hello Katilu...
YOU need to see a gynecologist; your BOYFRIEND also needs to be checked out.
Suggest YOU both read up on STD's, & preventing the diseases.

Hello, I'm KatiLu's boyfriend. I'm kinda pissed off right now because I typed a big ol thing and it didn't go thru and I have to type all over again... But anyways...

Can infections actually develop that fast? It's only been about 5 days ago. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought it takes awhile for something like that... And it won't hurt for KatiLu to go see a doctor or something, it's not gonna hurt. As she is the one with the itching. And to tell you the honest thruth, the "eating out" didn't last very long and... I guess I can say that it was nothing more than a few licks. I don't notice anything on my side, and I could go see some kind of doctor or whatever... But then that's going to cause complications...

What is a dental dam again? I have heard of it and read many articles here at this site, and I know quite a bit on this stuff. And yes, we could've been a little more safer, but it's just the natural human urges that we get... But I don't think it's anything serious, or at least anything related to what we have done together, and we haven't pushed it too far. I just really don't think it's too serious, and I really hope it isn't! But I don't want to be overconfident. Whatever the case, I'm standing beside her and we'll figure things out!

Oh and yes, that's another thing! We haven't done anything with anyone else before. It's just between us too. So that also lowers the chances of anything....

And if it's more of an outer thing I'm guessing that's better than inside...

A Quickie STD/STI Risk Assessment
quote:
Unprotected oral sex: ("blow job," "giving head," "going down," "rimming,")
Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
Gonorrhea
Hepatitis B
Herpes Simplex
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV, Warts)
Syphilis

Unprotected oral sex puts you at risk for quite a few very serious things actually. And whether it's one lick or a million, the risk is still the same. Fluid has been exchanged. Some STDs can develop very quickly, others may go unnoticed for months. So yes, something could have developed that quickly, and yes, you need to be tested too because you might not show symptoms for a long while.

"Human urges" are no excuse whatsoever for not being safe. STDs are serious business, especially since many of them can't be cured. Not having been with anyone else before does NOT mean you're automatically guarenteed free from STDs. You can get herpes from kissing your grandma. Other things can be picked up from sharing a towel. And yeast infections can crop up on their own. So you still need to be safe and get tested, that's just all there is to it.

Just to sum up succinctly: unless your Mom is a doctor or nurse, she can't diagnose you with a bacterial or yeast infection or anything else. Only a doctor can, so just go ahead and see the GYN and find out what's up.

Skyo: Yes, having no previous partners for any sexual activities can diminish the liklihood of some diseases and infections being transmitted. But bacterial or yeast infections happen due to imbalances in the body -- they aren't viruses, so having partners or not doesn't really make a difference there.

And what she has going on could even have nothing to do with the activity you're both describing, but could have been developing before, and then had symptoms which were just exascerbated by the activity. Make sense?

(Let me just say that it's always excellent to see people working together on sexual health issues. Good show!)

Just to add to MizS' comments: If it is a bacterial or yeast infection you need to get it properly diagnosed and treated. They require two very different treatments.

*sigh* I understand... Damn this world of complications. We'll, get done with what we can. I have no further questions! And also, my girlfriend and I have decided a few things that'll make our relationship much better, and our lives much better. Safe sex is the way to go. Thanks for all the info people.
