i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend a couple of weeks ago. only for a few minutes. however lately my vagina area has been itchy, i thought it was thrush so have put cream on and the itchiness is not so bad anymore. however i recently noticed a little red spot appear, quite small, like a little lump. i have looked up symptoms of genital warts and still am not clear on what to think. i am worried about what to think or do. i do not want to speak to my mum about it, i am a little embarrassed. could i have some advice on what to do please. should i be worried about genital warts. i am really scared.

Herpes will show itself within 1-7 days after being contracted. If the sex was a couple of weeks ago, I would not be concerned.
Is the spot painful? Could is possibly be an ingrown hair? Herpes sores come in groups, and quite quickly and very painful. Genital warts also come on quite quickly. Condoms should protect against these viruses but not always, if more appear or it gets worse, you should to see a doctor.
