    Maybe you're allergic to the stuff condoms are made out of?! :S

    No E45 cream hon - don't use anything there that isn't designed for it.
    Your best bet is to go to a doctor or family planning place & get some professional advice

    Maybe you have thrush? Sounds like a long shot, but its possible as it sounds like you have the symptoms...

    Check this out and decide for yourself

    will thrush go away on its own in time? or do i have to be treated for it o cant talk to my mum about it since we are not talking at the moment and she will go mad. im also on the pill too.
    and i dont really wanna see another doctor especially not about this in case they have to examin me and as i said before im only 14

    If you think you have thrush you dont HAVE to tell your mum or anyone really, just nip down to your chemist and buy some canisten once stuff and the next day you will be fine.
    And thrush isnt an std so your mum has no reason to think your having sex, you can get it from nylon panties, tight jeans and using sented soap on ur nether regions.
    But it wont go away in its own time it will only get worse.

    TO buy the stuff it costs about a tenner.

    re: can't/won't see the doctor?

    well, for once, i'm not gonna post anything sarcastic/offensive/plain unfunny and actually be helpful...

    you may be underage, but your health is your health and your doctor is your doctor. If you need treatment or advice it is their duty to give it to you. they also can't tell your parents about anything you come to them about - unless you specifically ask them to discuss the issue with your family. if you want anonimity you could go to a family planning clinic and give a false name/address - as long as you use the same name/address to pick up the results of any tests you may need, that is all they need the info for.
    if you really really can't handle talking to some1 face to face, try ringing NHS direct.

    when you have thrush is there a lot of white yeast?
    because i just looked again and there is barely any so im thinking that that is normal, also theres no "fishy" smell its just my normal vaginal smell and it doesnt seem red raw so i was wondering could the itchyness just be a reaction to the condom (straight after the sex i felt sore) or could it be that we had sex too "hard or fast"

    Think the answer to this one could be Crabs! I aren't too knowledgable on them, but I know my mate caught them off of someone once and they do go away, but it takes a while to get rid of them and I think they just go away after time, although there is probarbly some sort of cream you can use for them. They get passed on through sex, so ask your boyfriend if he has any itchyness as if you have caught them from him he will be itchy too.

    Just go to the doctor and get it sorted out, your mum dosen't have to find out.
