itchy vaginal

Feb 8, 2012

me and my boyfriend had sex few weeks ago but we used a condom and im taking birth control...but i dont know why my vaginal area is itching

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, Your itch can be from many things, using a condom during sex though reduces the risk of transmission of HIV. You may be allergic to latex or picked up another type of STD. If it continues I recommend that you see your health care provider.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

worried and uncertain?
Wound, soap and hiv
