Q: Why does my boyfriend's penis itch after sex?

After my boyfriend and I have sex without a condom, he says that his penis itches, so could I have an STD or is there something else going on with my vagina, like vaginitis?

Some couples have an "allergy" to each other in the sense that with skin to skin contact there can be some sensitivity and antigen issues.  You could also have an undiagnosed vaginitis or other condition - sometimes they are asymptomatic - to be sure, both of you should get checked out and i would strongly recommend using a condom for STD protection and to prevent pregnancy.  "It only takes one time..."

At the first signs of penis redness and irritation, many men become concerned about the possibility that they have contracted an STD. Fortunately, penis problems are more frequently caused by common skin conditions or aggressive sex, including masturbation, that result in skin rash, soreness, itching and burning. Most of these problems are easily treatable at home, using a penis health crème that contains natural antibacterial agents and moisturizers(health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) on a regular basis. However if you have an open sore or are uncertain about the nature of your health issue always ask your physician.
