I had sex was messing around with a guy (friend of mine) last night on an off for a few hours. Anyway, he didn't put the condom on til get comfortable inside me. But otherwise, it was protected sex.

Since a little after he left i felt a discomfort on my vulva. I looked at it this morning, and right where the hair was lessening and there was clear skin on my vulva there seemed to be a pimple. I got really nervous. I asked him about herpes, he's a pretty honest guy, said no. I don't have any other partners right now, he's got a girlfriend. I get the impression she wouldn't stray though.

Anyway, the bump looks like a pimple. It's not very big, but it's uncomfortable, and i'm aware of it, it sort of hurts a little. It looks to have a white head, but won't pop. I don't know, i'm not headachey or feverish or anything like that.

I'm scared. I know I've got to make an appointement with the dr. But does anyone have any experience with anything similar?

first up, if there was any genital contact without a condom, even for a split second, it's *not* protected sex.

Pimples can happen on the genitals. It is unlikely that a herpes sore would erupt less than a day following exposure. but if you think it could be something, definitely see a doctor and get it checked. Herpes can only be diagnosed with certainty by testing an open sore. while you are there, ask for a full STD screen.

And read Safe, Sound and Sexy our article on safer sex.

Qu es el dealio?

First, stop trying to pop it -- the skin there is pretty delicate and that's only going to irritate it.

You're definitely on the right track by calling your doctor. S/he'll be able to take a look and determine what it is, something we can't do here.

In the future using a condom the entire time will dramatically decrease your risk for STD/STIs. Also, if pre-ejaculate or semen came in contact with your vulva you do have a pregnancy risk. (Unless you're using a second form of birth control, in addition to the condoms.)
