Coughing and Oral Sex
thecurious posted:
I have these white spots in and around my vagina, which don't itch and aren't raised. My boyfriend and I are both virgins, and I swear that the furthest we've ever gone with ANYBODY is oral sex with each other. My concern is that he went down on me once while he was recovering from a cough. Is this related?

May someone please tell me what these are? Please help me! I am so concerned.
Emma_WebMD_Staff responded:
It could be just the natural way your vagina looks. Or there are some things that it could be. Some options are a possible Yeast Infection , Bacterial Vaginosis , or possible Herpes that can be contracted by oral sex . If the partner has oral herpes (cold sores may be a sign of oral herpes).

If you are concerned I would certainly talk to your doctor about these white spots in your vagina.

Good luck!
thecurious replied to Emma_WebMD_Staff's response:
Thank you so much for your help!

At first, I thought it was also infection because of the white discharge that was coming out, which made my vagina itch quite a bit. After I used some feminine wash, the itch disappeared. I don't know how long the white bumps have been there, but they really don't itch.
