It could contribute : To it but it is not an std, if u do not want to get preg i rec seeing a gyn or going to a clinic to get on birth control, and you can potentially catch a lot of bad diseases from unprotected sex like gon, chly, herpes, hiv, so you should be using at least a condom if you are not married and u may have a great boyfriend but many guys your age only are thinking of 1 thing and dont care ifugeta dise.

Allergy: Some women have reactions, almost like an allergic reaction, to their boyfriend/husband. Whether it's bacteria on his penis, yeast on his penis, something is causing irritation to your vagina when you come in contact with him. That's great that you've identified it, at least, so you know how to prevent it!
