Brief Answer:
Possible sexually transmitted disease!

Detailed Answer:

Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these rather disturbing symptoms that you have reported. They are suggestive of a possible sexually transmitted infection. This calls for a full examination, laboratory testing and adequate treatment. Your partner should also be tested and treated accordingly. It must be a night mare for your first sexual experience to end up in such a horror. The damage is already done and what we can do at this point is to make sure we act well in time and adequately to prevent complications.

In all, possible STD. Get evaluated alongside your sexual partner for treatment. Please, protection during sexual intercourse to me is non negotiable. Always endeavor to good care of yourself even when having sex.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do fee free to ask for more information and clarification if need be.
