Vaginal symptoms after first sex
Posted on: 06/18/2007
I have dry flaky skin around my vagina and im so scared because i had sex for the first time about 2 weeks ago and this has just happened. Im scared i might have herpes or something and im scared of doctors so i dont know what to do. It also hurts when i pee but im not itchy. I was also looking up symptoms of herpes and this morning my glands in my throat were swollen and i had a head ache and feel sick. What should i do?
You will have to see your doctor, or see one at a Planned Parenthood Clinic to be evaluated. Please relax, and make an appointment.
