Me and my boyfriend recently had oral and vaginal sex. There was a lot of friction going on down there. After I noticed my vagina hurt more than usual. The next morning I woke up and it was swollen red and had these little white bumps. Me and my boyfriend have been together for over a year. I also noticed I’ve been discharging more and it itches and burns down there

The issue you are facing is unlikely to be due to sexually transmited infection. They are more likely due to friction burns

Post coital discomfort is common for women who have recently become sexually active.

Lack of experience, possible fungal infections, tissue abrasions and contusions due to lack of proper lubrication are the most common causes of such soreness.

In most cases, the symptoms would subside on its own without treatment.

But in case, it is intolerable, use of antiinflammatory agents (Ibuprofen), use of proper lubrication can help ease the symptoms and help in faster recovery.

If in doubt, you may consult with your doctor and seek a proper opinion.
