Need help.. Std? Yeast Infection? Something else?
littleone_xo posted:
I burn and itch. Sometimes a lot sometimes mostly at night. From scratching so much i sometimes get small paper cuts like from all the irritation. It occasionally burns when I urinate or have sex. Every once in a while I get lower abdominal pains. I had unprotected sex 8 to 9 months ago. I also have an IUD(Mirena). Could this be a STD or just a yeast infection? Or can this be from my IUD? Need advice please!

An internet board cannot tell you if these symptoms are due to a yeast infection or and STD.

However, because you have engaged in unprotected intercourse (and, I'm assuming, did not confirm your partners STD status), it would be a very good idea to consider some STD testing to rule this out.
