since two days ago my vagina has been very sore and red, I thought I just had thrush so I went and bought some cream. It doesn't hurt so much anymore but I found that I have about 5 small flesh coloured lumps just under my vulva, they don't hurt or itch or anything.
Please could you tell me if you think they might be warts or could they be something else, like some kind of rash. Couid it go away on its own after the thrush clears up? I really don't want to go to the Family Planning Clinic because I have already been for 2 pregnancy tests and a morning after pill. I have only had sex about 10 times over the past 2 years with 3 differnt partners but each time something goes wrong, God I hate sex.
Thank you for any help or advice you can offer me.

We can't diagnose anything online. You definitely need to go see a doctor -- don't worry, they really aren't judging you.

Also, keep in mind it's possible you don't actually have a yeast infection and are treating yourself for it anyway -- a very bad idea.

If you hate sex seriously consider taking a break from it. Truly, there's no point in being sexually active if it's causing this much conflict for you.

I think these articles will be helpful:
