Q: How do I know if I have an STD?
The other day I woke with one pimple on the edge of my vagina where I had thought I nicked myself after shaving and then used a new scented body wash, I popped it and proceeded to carry on normally; later that night I had a bit of rough sex and my boyfriend accidentally stuck it in my butt and then my vagina.. The next morning I woke up feeling really oily down there and greasy had about a dozen or so (maybe more) bumps all around that area (that look like pinples) and some more all over, two leading back on my buttcheek from my anus. They are painful, tried taking a bath. They don't look anything like genital warts, or herpes, but what could they be? Is it sweat build up or irritation? I've only ever had two sex partners, one over 14 months ago and one I've had for almost a year.
