    Hi hdkans,

    Red, swollen genitals associated with sores (ulcers) that have developed soon after sex would tend to suggest genital herpes. A more likely possibility is thrush, but the photo is under-exposed and I can't be sure what the sores or ulcers look like. Would you mind taking a few more photos, preferably with better lighting and also in focus?

    i also gave him oral sex and we also did some butt stuff but im noticing no swelling or ulcers there just on my vagina, i think im just panicking a bit. probably just a bacterial infection.
