In the future: Always always have barrier protected intercourse. It's not worth permanent STD's or a pregnancy you are not ready for. Good luck, could have just been a friction burn--just be careful in the future. The "recurrent yeast infections" could also just be sperm and seminal fluid coming back out (it's a one way street)--gets clumpy, whitish, usually doesn't itch too much, another benefit for condoms! ...Read more

One side of clitoris has squishy extra skin lump, about the same size as clitoris. No pain, no difference in color no other symptoms. Worrisome?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining the "lump". However, it may be residual tissue from the development of clitoris. You may watch and wait. If the "lump" more than doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, develops a discharge, or other lumps appear, see a doctor.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine ...Read more
