I had sex recently. It was protected, but my vagina itches now…

… I’m really scared!!

First of all—good for you! It’s great that you made the healthy decision to use a condom, and it’s important to be aware of your body, too!

Vaginal itching can occur for all sorts of reasons. Some females may experience yeast or bacterial vaginitis infections after intercourse; others may experience a reaction to spermicides or lubricants.  Itching can also be a symptom of some sexually transmitted infections.

The most important thing is to see a healthcare provider if the itching continues. Teen Clinic offers free or low-cost and confidential infection checks if you’re under 20. Just give us a call to schedule for the next possible day.
