[Question #4265] Receiving Oral Sex

31 months ago
Two and a half weeks ago I received unprotected oral sex and he fingered me. It was the first time I've done anything sexual. He said he didn't have any diseases. I went to my doctor a week after and tested negative for STDs but she wants me to get a blood test in four weeks. My vagina and vulva are still very irritated especially when I walk. It feels swollen and slightly tingly/burns. It doesn't burn when I go to the bathroom but I do get some discharge. I've tried monistat, probiotics, and steroid ointment--it helped a lot but I'm still irritated--especially where he fingered me. Should it be taking this long to heal? What do you think it could be? Any other suggestions of things I should try?

Welcome to the Forum. I'll try to help.  STDs are rarely transmitted through cunnilingus so I'm not too surprised to hear that your STD tests are negative.  This is good news.  Further, I am confident that your blood tests (which will probably be for syphilis and HIV will be negative).  Having ruled out STIs the origin of your continuing irritation is troublesome.  Can you tell me, were you sore immediately after your partner masturbated you or did the irritation develop at some point later, after the event.  If it developed later, when did it occur and is the irritation getting worse over time or staying about the same?  This information  may provide clues to the origin of your continued soreness.  EWH

I remember it hurt when he fingered me and I asked him to stop. The irritation really began two days later. It was getting worse and I thought it might be a yeast infection so I tried some monistat and azo. It seemed to help. I also used some triamcinolone ointment and that seems to help the most. But I thought it would have cleared up by now. It’s definitely better but not back to normal.

i agree with you. If this were the trauma from receiving masturbation, the pain would have begun sooner.  The timeline you describe suggests that some sort of process resulted from the masturbation you received.  Based on this, I would suggest you see your Gyn again and ask to be evaluated for cellulitis.  Cellulitis is a bacterial infection which can result when traumatic injury becomes infected with bacteria.  if possible it would be best to see the same person who evaluated you before as only they will have the opportunity to compare how your exam looks now, as opposed to when you were last seen.  EWH
