Of course risk factors for STD (new partners, multiple partners, etc) are important in judging the possibility of STD. But only a professional examination and testing can tell for sure. If you're having discharge, irritation, itching, or odor and these aren't normal for you, see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

This sounds similar to vulvodynia, or vaginal pain without any infection or trauma but you will need a doctor's evaluation to be sure. ...Read more

Bacterial vaginosis: The most common vaginal infection is bacterial vaginosis which occurs when the normal good bacteria in the vagina, peroxidase positive lactobaccillus, are killed off (many things can do this including douching).
