STD/STI: Deep bruise suggests that perhaps you two were rather enthusiastic but my concern is really regarding the boils which suggests sexually transmitted disease/infections. Best to go see your Family Doc for evaluation & treatment as appropriate. ...Read more

At first it hurt when I walked .

Hard to say: Could be related to infection or inflammation of the few organs in that area - bladder seems most likely for that kind of pain, but could also be a sexually transmitted disease, or a bowel problem.
