I was masturbating the other day and once I finished everything was fine…

The next day my vagina was itchy but there is no discharge or odor.

Itching can potentially be a sign of an infection.

Some STIs (sexually transmitted infections) can have symptoms that include itching. It is important to know that at Teen Clinic we define “sex” as oral, anal, vaginal intercourse, or genital to genital contact.  If any of these types of sexual contact happen without protection (like condoms or dental dams), there is a risk of STI transmission.

However there are 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

 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.

Why is my vagina so itchy? I haven’t had any sex with anyone.

Good question!
