Most likely it: is a yeast or bacterial infection. Please get yourself to the nearest healthcare provider to get diagnosed and treated. And in the future please do not have unprotected intercourse if anyone unless you have been married to that person for 10 years and trust him to be faithful with you. You never know who the other person may have been with and some things hang out a long time... ...Read more
