I am a 21 yr old male with a pretty inactive sex life. A few weeks ago me and my girlfriend decided to have sex ... time was right blah blah ... Before thjis i had had unprotected and protected sex 4 months and 7 months and 1 year ago. I have suffered no ill effects from any of those times. However this time sex for my girlfriend was very painful and she has what she calls (as she is too embarrassed to show me) a rash and it is very painful especially at night when she tries to sleep. I was wondering if it was an STD or if it could be aggraveted thrush or the like ... and if so why am i / was i showing no symptoms.
Thanks for any advice help anyone can give.
It could be thrush - it's hard to say. Your girlfriend should get to the doctor. There's no shame; she probably had it already; and it should clear up easily with treatment (and hang around without it). You should be treated too, even if you have no sypmtoms.
She also has a strange kind of skin ripple / cracking (not painful) in the middle of her palms ... appeared about the same time but not sure.
Well she went to the doc and has been diagnosed as possibly herpes - lab tests sent off.
I'm off to the doc asap as well.
the skin ripple could always be scabies, it all just depends. There are over 80 strands of HPV out there, some bad some not too bad, so the doctor is the safest bet.
