I started my period a few days ago and I started using a different pad. The area around my vagina started to feel irritated and it was painful so I looked down there and it was very red and had bumps. Could it just be irritated from the pad? Or is it an STD?
Also, today I took a shower at my friend's house and I used their soap to wash down there. The lips swelled up and they were very hard and looked shiny. I can feel them rubbing on my thighs when I walk and it's uncomfortable. Could this be an allergic reaction to the soap?
I don't know if the rash is a form of an STD. My boyfriend and I have sex without condoms but he doesn't have anything because I took his virginity and I don't sleep around with other guys. He's the first guy I've had sex with without a condom. The only way I would have an STD is if he slept with another girl and gave it to me but I highly doubt that's the case.
