I had unprotected sex (beyond stupid I know) for two nights with a friend I met travelling two weeks ago. Shortly after I had trouble urinating and for one day was barely able to go at all. The urine also appeared bloody. I went to a doctor (in Mexico) and received antibiotics for 5 days to treat a UTI. Now however I have itching and possible bumps on my vagina. I tend to make myself crazy over these things and am not sure if I am dealing with an STD or vaginal infection or if I am just psychotic. I have had benign cysts in the past that I convinced myself were an STD but were actually just an ingrown hair or small infection. This is the first time I've had sex in three years and have my HPV vaccine. What are my odds that it's an STD? And if so which one? If its all in my head how do I stop obsessing and get some peace. I have an appointment with a gyno next week.
