About a week ago I had my first period in months (due to my contraception injection). In the first couple of days of my period, my vagina was abnormally itchy and I wondered if maybe I had a yeast infection. A couple of days later a noticed slight stinginess when I peed and decided to check it out and found this sore. This is the first time I've ever had a sore on my vagina and my mind is in over drive.
Background: I was seeing a guy and having unprotected sex for around 9 months, he told me he was clean of STD's and you can never be certain if somebody is being truthful. I know I was STD free before sleeping with him. We haven't slept together in around 3 months, I've had no symptoms during this time until now on my period.
Could this be the result of me scratching during my period or a reaction to my menstrual pad? or a yeast infection or could it be Herpes? My period has finished and the area is no longer itchy, I don't particularly have discharged and there is a slight smell but I think this could be from me not washing as thoroughly because of the sore. The sore has not spread to anywhere else.
Any advice would be great! I'm currently away however I am going to the Sexual Health Clinic on Monday to get tested and will post my results when I find out for anyone else in a similar situation.
