Unsure: Hi Not exactly sure about what it is but a few thoughts: The timing of the appearance of the blisters would suggest that it is related to friction/trauma from intercourse, however it seems a little unusual that there would be 5 distinct blisters, in which, the timing factor may just have been coincidental. There are a few STDs that have this appearance and it never hurts to get checked.
