hi, i am keerthi 24 yrs old, i have a bf nd i sarted having sex with him since january of this year. i lost my virginity after trying for 3-4 times.
I started shaving my vagina since den, i sometimes use razor and some times hair removal cream. Whenever i have sex with my bf sometimes i get sores in my groin areaa and sometime times i dont. on thursday of this week i had sex with him, I was not interested in sex, bt bcoz my bf pleased me i had sex with him. He was very rough, after sex i went to washroom to clean my vagina and i had burning down there, my urine was in yellow colour and i had burining sesation while urinating too. I was fasting on thurday and i didn't drink water on that day, so thought the reason behind urine being acidic is less intake of water. Late night i reached home went to loo again, while urinating again i had burning sensation. I drank lot of water applied coconut oil and slept. In the morning i didnt have burning sensation down, but i got sores in my groin areaa. I left untreated. The next day, i mean on saturday, some of the sores vanished, but there are some sores 3-4 sores left in my groin area and dey started a little burning and pain. my vagina was wet alot of time for two days, i checked with my discharge colour, it was white but some times it was not watery, sometimes it was cheesy something like that. but now after two days my vagina is feeling normal in terms of discharge. It is fourth day from now i had sex with my bf but still i have three sores left in my groin area. They are in pink in colour and pus filled in them. I searched for the reason in the internet and found some of the infection names as yeast infection and std's lie HSV2. i felt i am infected with any one of these infections. I dont have any iching or burning sensation at vagina or during urinating so thought yeast is not the one. I was very much concered about the HSV-2 type disease. I swear i had sex only with my bf in my life time, and my bf doesnt have any infection as i have seen his pennis and his groin area too. he didnt had any pain while having sex, but i had a little pain while having sex i guess it was because i was not wet nd he played rough. Today in the morning i read about another infection called folliculitis, which is also like HSV-2 sores at groin area. I know HSV means herpes, but i dont know the exact difference between herpes and sores. Folliculitis is a infection which occurs at hair follicles, due to improper shaving, or many other reasons. I have shaved my genital area one month before, but, two days before i met my bf i tried sugaring (cold) for the very first time. Since i had a little hair, my genital hair didn't remove. idid sugaring in a very improper way as it is my first time. my hair have grown in the groin area where i have those three sores.

What should i infer from the internet data? Am i affected with HSv 2 or folliculitis? My bf doesnt have any sores after sex for these many times. If i infected with HSV 2 he should also have the same sores after numerous sex with him. I some had sores in my groin area too every time i have shaved but every after shaving i had sex with him too. I had sores only some times not every time i had sex with him.
Please help me out with this confusion.

Does any of the infection like yeast or STD have symptoms only for some days or is it continual??? because i had problem only for one day not more than that and about my bf???? he doesn't have any of the symptoms of sores in his groin area.. so possibly we both are not infected with HSV 2. Can i get infected with yeast infection with an unprotected sex with my bf????

A vaginal yeast infection is not caused by unprotected sexual intercourse.

A vaginal yeast infection is caused by the fungus candida. Candida is a microorganism that's normally present in your vagina, along with bacteria. Your vagina naturally contains a balanced mix of yeast and bacteria. Lactobacillus bacteria produce acid, which discourages overgrowth of yeast in the vagina. But disruption of the healthy balance can result in an overgrowth of yeast.

Some people with a STD do not have symptoms. Some symptoms start gradually but will last for more than one day.

My concern and recommendation to see a doctor is the pus filled sores.

Hi Maryan,

i am scared that my family will get to know about my sex life before marriage with my boyfriend. This is the reason why i am not consulting a doctor. But, i am very much concerned about my health and my bf's health. Is there any possibility to mail my groin area pictures. which might help me out with your sugesstions???

No, please do not send me a photo. It is against the policy of this website to submit such photos. I am not a physician and cannot make a diagnosis.

I do not know where you live. But, here in the U.S., we have laws called HIPA, that protect a patient's privacy and only individuals authorized by the patient have access to medical records and information.

Hi Maryann,

I am not aware of it. Thank you letting me know.
I also wanted to share that i had sex with my bf yesterday, this time we had a long foreplay and i didn't have any pain while intercourse and not even when i went to wash my vagina, but, it was swollen. I didn't have any severe burning sensation and my urine was also not in yellow color. After giving a gap of two hours my bf again wanted to have an intercourse but i was in a rush to leave for my home, i was not wet so i had a little pain while having sex which can be tolerable but was a discomfort not to have an intercourse. Today i have checked with my vagina, vaginal discharge and my groin area too. I didn't have any new sores form, but, i still have the older ones which are like black spots now with no pus in them.

Hello keerthi,

Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern. There is a lot of information on the internet. At times, it can be overwhelming and difficult to self diagnosis.

A burning sensation with urination is a symptom of a urinary tract infection (UTI). UTIs don't always cause symptoms.

A white, cheesy vaginal discharge is a symptom of a yeast infection. A vaginal yeast infection is inflammation of the vagina and causes vaginal irritation, intense itchiness and a thick, white, odor-free vaginal discharge with a cottage cheese appearance.

The sores that you describe a pink and pus filled might be the result of your shaving and other treatments. Try refraining from these activities and see if the sores go away.

Keerthi, consider scheduling an appointment with your primary care physician. An examination of your genital area and blood tests will confirm the cause of the sores and rule out or diagnose a sexually transmitted disease.

Hope this helps in some way.

Thank you so much for the reply,
I fear to consult a Physician because i am not married yet and i lost my virginity. I am getting married in the month of feb nxt year. Can i just wait for some more months to consult a physician, as of now i don't have any itching or burning sensation, i only have three sores on my groin area which will vanish in couple of days.

Hi Keerthi,

The decision is yours to make. Personally, I would not wait.
