I had protected sex with my boyfriend….

……a day after we had sex I started to notice that I have an infection and it’s very itchy. Could it be that I have an STI or is it just an infection?

Some STIs (sexually transmitted infections) can have symptoms that include itching.  While using a condom during sexual contact definitely helps reduce the risk of STIs, there is still a risk of transmission.

It is also important to know that there are other types of infections like yeast and Bacterial Vaginosis  that can occur organically from imbalances in the body (stress, diet, and clothing can all contribute to this). These are not STIs, and can be treated.

The only way to know what is going on for sure is to see a medical professional. They will be able to determine what is going on, and provide treatment if needed! You can do this at our Teen Clinic. Give us a call to make an appointment! 303-442-5160
