My nipples are very sore to touch and have been for the past 3 or 4 days. I have also got symptoms of thrush as my vagina is very itchy, sore and red. I am sexually active, i'm 17, and I am on the pill. I last had sex about a week ago and that was 4 days after my period, it was unprotected but he didnt finish 'inside me'. I'm not sure what to do!

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You should have the protection from the birth control pills if you have been regular in taking them at scheduled time daily and provided this was not your first pill pack use. The sore nipples, vaginal itching could be due to hormonal changes caused by the use of hormonal pills. The vaginal soreness, redness and itching together could suggest possibility of infection. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination, vaginal swab/smear test to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
