Painful sex


Q: 2 weeks ago had sex with a new partner. It was not safe. But there were no issues. After encounter, days later I started to get itchy and sensitive on the inner labia near the vaginal opening. but that periodically happens to me anyway and I am prone to yeast infections. Tho it didn't seem like i was getting a yeast infection. Then the day i was getting together with this man i felt a little sensitive on the left inner labia. Nothing too bad so I continued with my the date. I was fine when he touched my clit but as soon he stuck his fingers (or jammed them) it hurt. Maybe i wasn't wet enough. We proceeded to have sex and it hurt but just on the outside, inside it felt fine. We had sex yesterday morning and i was pretty lubed. It felt sensitive but not painful but it has felt irritated and very sensitive almost sore all day. I looked at it, it is raw red. Is it possible i have an STD? To my sight i didnt see any bumps or lesions. I put some cortisone cream on the area. Today -- its been one day still sore.
