i wanna know

I have been sexually active for almost two years now and haven't had any complications until now. My boyfriend and I started having sex like twice a week, and then here lately it has been everyday. After us having sex my vagina has become swollen, really tender, red, and has been itching. It never used to do this until here lately. Does this mean I have an STD or could it be something else? How do I know if its STD?

sounds like more friction then what your were used to and not a STD but if you have concerns beyond this, it never hurts to have it ruled out with some really simple tests.

from the sounds of it, none of it sounds STD related

Sounds like it could be a yeast infection. Get tested either way and know for sure instead of guessing.
