I am an experienced Medical Specialist.

Are you able to post pic?

If not painful, this can be just irritation from sexual intercourse.

Yeast infection also possible.

I have posted the picture above

This is indeed not a wart, not herpes either.

Most likely friction injury from sexual activity.

Another possibility can be syphilis which can present with painless sore.

Hence, you can get tested for syphilis just to be sure.

Thanks. How is it possible that I could have syphillis though if I have not been with another partner than my regular one? Is it possible to show a long time after a previous partner?

Actually in case of syphilis yes --it may not show up for long time.
