hey scarleteen! i just want to start out by saying that i adore your site and it's been a treasure trove of inclusive and accepting information for a teen with few in-person resources to turn to on sex.
my issue is that i started having piv intercourse with my boyfriend around a week ago, and afterwards i noticed that i felt itchiness within my vagina, but it went away soon, maybe in a day. then a few days ago we had sex again, and i specifically remember a lot of manual sex being involved in addition to the piv. the day after i realised the itchiness was back, and it's more intense and distracting. so far it hasn't shown signs of going away. the itchiness is limited to the vaginal canal, with nothing on the vulva, and i haven't noticed any change in discharge or odor. i can't feel any textural difference when reaching in with my fingers.
as both my boyfriend and i are each other's first sexual and romantic partners, i'm ruling out STIs, and it's unlikely that it was caused by latex or silicone (from the lube) allergy as i've come into contact with both ingredients in non-sexual contexts without adverse effect. i was wondering if this might have been caused by irritation due to the stimulation of my vagina? and if so, would there be any way to alleviate it? or are there other possibilities for what it's been caused by? i'm using contraceptive pills, for further information. unfortunately, as we've only done this a few times, i can't say whether or not it happens because of piv intercourse or because of manual sex.
i am aware that i should also be seeking medical attention, but that's a lot more difficult these days due to the pandemic, and the only gynecologist i go to usually i don't feel comfortable sharing this with. in addition, it's extremely hard for me to find time away from my mom to address this on my own, as we haven't yet discussed sex in an open way (she has certain antiquated views) and i don't want to bring up the fact that i am having it now, now that i have a problem caused by having sex that i may need help with; it would increase her opposition to the situation.
i hope my question isn't too complicated, and thank you in advance for your help
