I had sex in the school bathroom with the same guy that I’ve had sex with for about 6 months. It was the first time that my vagina had burned during sex. After that, my vagina started to itch constantly and continues to burn during sex. Do I have an STD or is it just a yeast infection?

Itching and burning in the vagina can be caused by a bunch of different things, including yeast infections and some STDs. The only way to find out what’s really going on is to get it checked out by a doctor or nurse. Your nearest Planned Parenthood health center can help.

If you’ve had vaginal or anal sex without a condom or oral sex without a condom or other kind of barrier (like a dental dam) then it’s important to get tested for STDs. Be honest with the doctor or nurse and the two of you can decide what tests are right for you.

You can also talk about birth control while you’re there. Using both a regular birth control method and condoms every time you have sex is the best way to prevent both pregnancy and STDs.

And while it might be tempting sometimes, it’s not a good idea to have sex in the school bathroom, or anywhere else on your school’s property. You could risk getting into a lot of trouble that wouldn’t be worth it.
