Hi. About a week ago, my girlfriend and i had oral sex. I was biting her clitoris/labia minora for quite some time (being rough) but she did not orgasm. But after we washed up, she noticed that her clitoris and labia was swollen. we thought it'll go away but after 3-4 days she has a burning sensation on her labia/clitoris and sometimes it hurts really badly (sporadically). there's sores forming on her clitoris and labia that look like ulcers. but we've never had sex and are still virgins. Is it because i was too rough on her clitoris? she wasnt so wet when i went down on her.there's no discharge. sometimes her panties have little blood stains and the sores have pus coming out but i assume those are from the sores. can we wait this one of, and if so, how long?

much obliged Very Happy

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that she describes suggest possibility of infection. If left untreated, it can spread upwards leading to PID and other complications. She should consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist at the earliest (if the symptoms have not subsided in 72 hours after sexual contact) for further examination and swab/smear test from vulval area and vaginal discharge/discharge from sores to identify the causative agent. Treatment as indicated (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help her. She should consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with her treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet. If infective cause is detected, you should also get treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection.
Take care.
