  • Do I have an STI??

    I'm really concerned about what's going on with my sexual health right now. Recently there have been growths around the outside of my vagina (towards the bottom near the anus) that look like little moles? Every time I have sex with my husband now it burns so bad. It's a burning sensation on the outside. It just feels very dry, and using different kinds of lubrication tends to irritate it more.
    I'm just worried that I may have symptoms of an STI showing up nearly a year later from my previous sexual partners.

  • It's entirely possible. You need an evaluation by your gynecologist to be sure. Were you tested prior to starting a new sexual relationship? Was he?
    It could be that it didn't show up on exam or blood tests at that time, but you certainly need to get an evaluation now, and abstain from sex until you know more.
