Transman, pre-T, pre-everything, got some funky stuff going on

I'm sexually active, with both men and women, for the first time in about six years. I have been for the past six months (and this is a huge psychological step forward, so I'm patting myself on the back). I've been bad about tracking my period in that time and the last time I was active... it wasn't a good way to be tracking how my body deals with consensual, happy sexual activity.

In any case, two things: my labia is dry (the vagina is not) and my period is being late (not in the pregnant sense, but in the timing is off sense).

I think the dry labia is just chafing and weather and life related rather than a problem, but I'm also not about to put hand lotion on my bits. What's a safe (and portable) way to deal with this? Portable is key since I spend most nights Not At Home and all weekends Out of State and Living Out of My Car.

The timing of the period worries me a bit. When I'm not sexually active, I can nearly set the clock by my period. (29 days. Always. Forever.) Without going into it, my period went haywire last time I was sexually active, but that's a poor example and had other notable problems. This month, I really noticed it because this was 38 days long and I was freaking out. Is this normal? Can I fix it without stopping sex (or seeing a doc I probably don't have insurance for - most standard OBGYNS don't mix well with transmen, ime)?
