Sexually Transmitted Diseases/What is this



I had sex with my ex boyfriend and the condom slipped off so we stopped. 2 days later I'm experiencing some irritation inside of my vagina. It doesn't burn when I pee but throughout my day I feel very irritated a light burning and a little green discharge. The discharge has a very light odor. I notice that around the opening of the vagina is where I feel the most discomfort. I took a picture and noticed so bumps. What is this!?

Hi Nena,

The greenish discharge alone is abnormal and indicates a bacterial infection, so I would see your doctor ASAP. As for the bumps, I don't see any abnormalities, but I would ask your OBGYN for a pap smear if you haven't had one in awhile. Women should have a pap smear every 3 years to check for cervical cancer and HPV. Try to make that appointment as soon as you can and try to abstain from sex until its dealt with.

Best wishes,
