Well, I'll start us off. My IUD is MIA. My doctor couldn't find the strings during a pelvic exam, and I had an ultrasound to find it yesterday. Haven't heard the results yet, but from what I understand, I'll likely have to have my cervix dilated so they can get at it with forceps.
I'm kind of anxious about what the pain will be like during the dilation, and I loved not having a period anymore so I want to get another one in there ASAP, if possible. Has any anon here had experience with removal of a migrated IUD?

No. 145481

Anybody else get horrible side effects from most birth control options? I’ve tried a variety of pills and patches and the negative side effects always outweigh the good. I gain weight, completely lose my sex drive, and my emotions are cranked up to the highest notch.

I’m hesitant to try an IUD or any other form of bc because of these symptoms. I stopped taking any form of bc 3 months ago for the first time in 5 years and I finally feel at a normal state with my body.

Any advice on alternative bc options? Condoms are ok, but they make me a little nervous.

No. 145526

Dunno if this goes here or into skincare general.
Anyway: beside waxing, what's the best method for shaving pube and exterior labia?
I only tried trimming so far, but never get silky enough results.
I refuse to wax and feel pain down there.
Does a specific, non aggressive shaving cream for vulva even exist?

No. 145528

Holy shit, this makes me nervous as fuck. I've had a IUD for 3 years now and never a problem. This year I have to take it out and put a new one, I freaking hope my doc does not find any similar issue.

>>145481
My experience with IUD so far is 10/10.
If hormones from pills fuck you up, try a copper IUD
>no hormones
>98% effective (more than condom and pill iirc)
>lasts for years
>have it checked from time to time in normal routine schedule, no pills to swallow everyday
>if you change your mind and want a baby you can have it removed and go for it whenever you please

The only side effect for me was to have longer and more copious periods for the first year, but then it went back to normal.
Speak to your doc for more info, you might want to give it a try.

I've had bad experiences with bc too. The pills I've tried gave me migraines, and the implant made me chubby and grouchy. I've been off it for a while now, but I'm thinking about trying the nuvaring next.

For anyone wanting ref on the copper IUD

I got mine about 2 years ago (after a condom came off inside me, went to get the morning after pill and it's procedure here in the uk for them to sit you down and ask questions, they said i could go to the clinic and get a copper IUD fitted the next day)
I won't say it wasn't painful to get fitted, it fucking was. Like i thought i was going to throw up/pass out, i can't believe they don't give local anaesthetic or smth for it. I was gonna get a 10yr one but i was coping so badly with the procedure they gave me a 5yr one, which is apparently smaller so easier to insert. I had cramps and felt dizzy when i got home, I just ate a bunch of comfort food and took some painkillers and it was fine.
Before the IUD my periods were typically not super painful and lasted 3-4 days. For the first year after the IUD my periods would be more painful and last about 10 days. Since hitting the 2 year mark the pain has been less (or i got used to it) and the bleeding lasts 6-8 days.
Hormonally i've not noticed huge changes, i've gained weight but that could be due to various other lifestyle choices, i've been trying to lose weight for the past 2 months and have been successful.
What i will say though is that my major decision for getting an IUD is that a year prior to having it fitted I had an abortion (by taking the pills and waiting for the pregnancy to 'pass') and fuck if that wasn't the most physically and emotionally painful experience ever. I'd rather have a painful period every month than go through that hell again, it's not worth risking it.
Obviously still use condoms if you have multiple partners etc etc but for convenience getting a copper IUD is a big weight off my mind.

You and me both. Laser hair removal is an option?

No. 145553

>>145526
Laser removal is the best, it's painful and you'll need 5+ sessions to get all of the hair removed but worked better for me than any other method. Anything else would cause severe irritation and new hair growing back would be visible in less than 24h after. Now thanks to laser epilation i'm finally free.

No. 145556

I feel like shaving was more painful than waxing for me since waxing you go in expecting a world of hurt but it's not that bad and the pain goes away after a day or so. Shaving just takes a cut or an ingrown hair to ruin your week. There's no pain free way to do it, and I really wouldn't recommend putting Nair down there if that's what you meant.

No. 145611

>>145475
Probably no1curr but I'm op, went to the doctor today and it turns out my IUD is in the right position still, just the strings are coiled up inside now. It's not that big of a deal until I need to get it out.
What's crazy is that on the ultrasound, they incidentally found that I have an cyst on my left ovary that's the same size as the ovary itself. So that's wild. Good thing I got my IUD checked out, so they can keep an eye on my fucked up ovary now lmao.

Too expensive.
I bought pic related and I started using it on my body a few weeks ago (no results yet, maybe it's too soon?) but imagine my disappointment when I read the instructions and they say IPL cannot be used on genital area.

I guess everyone reacts differently to the insertion procedure.
I took ibuprofen before undergoing the procedure, it still hurt but for me it was bearable, it's just the usual discomfort of a gynecological inspection + the pain of the doctor inserting a cannula in your cervix to put the IUD in place.
If the doc is good and experienced he/she will be fast and reduce the painful sensation with a quick insertion.
Afterwards you will have cramps for a couple hours, but you can take extra ibuprofen to ease the pain.
After that, you will not feel anything at all and you will be free.

Anon from >>145534 here
It's the kind of pain that you bare through whilst it happening and for a couple hours after, whilst it was being inserted there was a nurse holding my hand and being really supportive. If you're gonna do it maybe take a friend with you to take care of you after. Like i said in my last post it's so worth it if you're not looking to get pregnant.
Another note; and this might just be in the uk, but the doctor won't call you when it's time to get it removed/checked up, so keep a mental note of roughly when you got it inserted, i use the period tracking app 'Clue' and logged it in there. it's not like after it expires it's dangerous or anything, my mum is menopausal and hers expired and the doctor said they could leave it there forever without a problem.

You can totally get the pubes safely with one of these! I've done this, not the same device but a similar home IPL thing. The hair on the mons is just like doing your legs really.
All you wanna do differently for the genitals is basically cover the bits that you need to protect with your hand (you might need to sit in front of a mirror for this). So use one hand to cover your labia minora and use the other to zap the hairs on the labia minora. That way you can't accidentally laser any pink bits which will really sting and can burn you. Godspeed anon.

God I had my period end ~4 days ago but I’ve been spotting and with cramps similar to ons so I went to my gyno and nothing is wrong?? Has this happened to anyone else? Like my vagina burns and I have a bit of pain in pelvis but I got so many tests(blood urine they felt my stomach ultrasound etc) and I’m completely healthy, only cause I was told could be stress?

No. 145755

>>145646
They say not to use it on the genitals because the light is attracted to pigment, so darker areas of skin (like inner labia and butthole etc) can get burned. I'm 8 weeks in and I'd say at least half of the hairs are gone and the rest grows back really slowly compared to before! I used the Smoothskin Bare one and have pale skin and black hair, apparently light hair takes longer.

I just started using tampons and this is so fucking difficult. How am I supposed to know I pushed it in far enough? The instructions say to push until my hands touch my body, and that's exactly what I do. I can't feel it when I'm walking, maybe slightl, but the moment I lay down or sit it starts to hurt a little bit.
Should I just get a smaller size? My period is usually quite heavy the 1st 3 days and I don't want to keep changing my tampon every other hour, but maybe I have an extra sma vagina idfk
Maybe I'll just switch to pads again because even though they're more unhygienic they're easy to use.

Did you leave the applicator inside? Otherwise, for me it only hurts if the tampon hits the side walls or the pubis wall, which also makes the tampon not be deep enough– try pushing it in at a slight angle where it points to your back.

My periods can already get pretty heavy, so even though I wanted the copper IUD when talking to the doctor I chickened out when she talked about the painful periods. I got the pill but I’m too scared to start taking it and fuck with my hormones.

I never had problems with tampons (minus the very first time) but whenever I go to the gyno it is super painful, so much that I feel like screaming and have a feeling of constantly needing to pee afterwards.
At my last visit she told me that it hurts so much because my vagina is crooked. What does that mean? I didn't tell her I'm still a virgin because that would be humiliating at my age, but it likely means that sex also would be painful right?

No. 146237

>>146222
It will probably not be as painful, if you are comfortable with the person you want to sleep with in the future. Unless you were very aroused and relaxed at the gyno, which I doubt, it will be a very different experience. Just make sure there is enough foreplay, your partner is not a selfish asshole and have some extra lubrication on hand if you want that.

No. 146238

The doc already checked by himself that you are a virgin by inspecting your vagina.

I've heard of a tilted uterus (is pretty common) but never a crooked vagina. Do you think she meant your uterus is tipped? That can cause painful sex and one in every five women has it to some extent.

Careful with these meme drawings anons. I've never seen anyone with "hymens" like c, d and e, and apart from them being unrealistic as fuck, b looks like a serious rare condition where you need surgical intervention just to let your periods out. The only one that looks like a realistic vagina is a).

In general be very skeptic about any online information about hymens. Chances are more likely than not that they are a massive patriarchal meme that comes from seriously hurting virgins in their first time and making them bleed ("something must have broken, it's her body being like this!!" so men can avoid taking responsibility for hurting their girlfriends and wives during sex and have an excuse to be as rough as they want). Fun fact your "hymen" never really goes away, it only stretches and opens a bit wider, hence why b, c, d, e, look absolutely ridiculous; it shouldn't be completely closed at all or to the point you can't get any fingers or tampons. That anon most likely has vaginismus rather than a "thick hymen".

When I was young (maybe around 13 to 15) my mom noticed my long vag lips. I remember her making me lay down and touching them, then setting up an appointment at my pediatrician to ask him to also look at them and ask if they were normal (of course they fucking were). This was before I was even really exposed to porn and saw those ~*~pornstar vaginas~*~ and was self conscious about my vag lips. Finding out about women having smaller lips didn't help and I was definitely jealous.

Anyway, I looked at them today and thought they somehow shrunk lmao. I always thought they were horrendously long and huge, but today I just realized that they… really aren't. Kind of fucked up to think about how my own mom thought my vag was fucked up looking and made me self conscious about how they look. I love my mom but she didn't even fucking notice the beauty mark above my eyebrow until I was like in my 20s and we were in the middle of a facetime call.

obviously I'm not the arbiter of what is "normal" and I know some people simply don't care about nudity around their parents but showering with your mom until you're 18 raises some red flags in my mind.

Is a bit of coital bleed normal if the guy has a massive dick, pounded the cervix, and caused some friction?
It stopped but he got a little freaked out seeing a little blood. I don't have any stds. I do have a nexplanon implant that could be making me more sensitive.

After having intense sex, does anyone else's vagina feel, like, it's sort of almost falling out? God, that sounds so bad, but I swear it's not as bad as it sounds. Like, the inside is so swollen from the sex that it kind of pushes out a bit. Not labia, I mean the actual vagina. And I'm not "loose" or anything either, I have the opposite problem where I'm too tight and it can be extremely painful for both me and the guy.

TLDR does anyone's vagina get so inflammed after sex sometimes that it slightly pushes outward

I think it only happens if I have multiple sessions. I've been limiting sex to once a day whenever I have it, and that's made a difference. It doesn't happen too often, but whenever it happens it really freaks me out and I can't really find anything fitting my experience.
Also, it always goes away within 12-24 hours and has never resulted in any kind of infection or change in discharge or anything like that.

another samefag, but after reading a bit and thinking I'm pretty sure the fact that I completely shave everything contributes too. Apparently being completely shaven makes internal inflammation way more likely and I already feel inflamed after shaving, even without sex.

Still, if anyone relates please chime in.

He shouldn't be hitting your cervix. Normally, the cervix isn't directly at the end of the vaginal canal; it's slightly on the anterior. During sex the penis is supposed to go a little bit past it. I think you should see a gynecologist, because it almost sounds like you have a retroverted uterus. They're pretty common.

Have any of you sweet anons any positive experience with hormonal contraception?
I used the mini pill and the tricyclic pill (? English isn’t my first language) when I was around 18, the first one made me bleed a lot and both made my pussy dry up and my libido became lower. I haven’t used any hormonal contraception since then, but now that I’m pretty much sure that I don’t want kids, I want a more reliable method of contraception.
I also suffer from PMS for the two or so weeks between ovulation and the period. Some information states that hormonal contraception might make it better, some say it can become worse.
I might have a heightened risk of blood clots as well, so I’m thinking about getting an implant.
Any advice? And can anyone share any positive stories or is it just horrible and not even worth considering?

Have you thought about a copper IUD? I have one and it can fuck with your periods and make cramping worse, but otherwise won’t affect you like the hormonal stuff.

i use nexplanon (a etonogestrel bc that is implanted in the arm). i've had it 4.5 years, replaced once at 3 year mark. i still get my period, and it's really inconsistent and sometimes i bleed for like a month straight HOWEVER it's the only flaw (and everyone is different of course!!!). i still wouldn't trade it for anything. i got it because the pain was 10/10, i couldn't walk, leave bed, i was puking, and now i have none of that. my (serious, long term) bf and i also never use condoms and we've never had an issue thankfully!!!

I had the implant. It ruined my libido, made my pussy dry as fuck, and destroyed my mental health to the point where I wanted to kill myself. No emotions whatsoever, just felt grey and empty all the time. Ruined three years of my life and I am still struggeling with side effects like an irregular period two years later. I also bled for a year straight and my periods got worse and worse. It was alright for like half a year though.

Plus it was placed too deep so I had to have multiple attempts to dig it out of my arm. Fun stuff.

I had/have very heavy periods, horrible pms, migranes, nausea and horriblr cramping. I'd still chose that over hormonal birth control.

i've tried several different pills and every single one of them led to this:
- vomiting nearly every day a bit after taking it
- panic attacks every day
- developed severe depression, suicidal every day
- became extremely irritable and paranoid
- lost my period for a year and a half after stopping
- developed weird, isolated black hairs on my body and face

for me and other women i know, when one pill brings you hell, there isn't really any other one that won't be hellish too. women with "some" bad symptoms caused by the pill may have luck in trying others, but generally if the experience is super bad none will be friendly

get a non-hormonal option

I had that, went to laser epilasion a couple of times to get rid of it.
It really helped. Ididnt go there as frequently as i should so maybe thats why my pubic hair isnt completely gone, but it does make them thinner/shorter/less dense. If you're really disturbed by it, i suggest you save some money for it. Although trimming is enough imo.

Thank you ladies, I have gotten to the point where I am just wanting to get this fucker out, be it just the cyst or not but the thing is that it most likely will be an open surgery, which fucking worries me. It'll be quite a long car ride away at that but honestly, long wound would be better than this. I am still hoping for a uh the other option rather than open, taken its the fucking pandemic and all. I am also afraid I am gonna fucking wake up in the middle of it but mostly the healing + rona. Wish people would talk about this more!!

This is normal, don't sweat it. You know after you work out, you get kind of a pump on where the muscles you used are swollen? Your vaginal opening is surrounded by muscles that get worked out during sex, and it also becomes relaxed from arousal. Prolapse situations usually only happen in older women (who are also menopausal) and people using ridiculously enormous toys. Nothing bad's going to happen, you only need to be concerned if it's painful or it doesn't go away within a day.

If you're worried about copper go get tested for allergies before you implant a IUD.
I've had one for 5 years now, everything went smooth, never experienced any trouble and the insertion was painful but tolerable because my gyno was really quick and competent.
It gets inserted by placing a cannula through your cervix, the IUD slides from the cannula inside your uterus. Strings dangle out of your cervix for future removal of the IUD. You won't notice them inside of you, and you can keep using internal tampons without any problem.
I am going to insert a new one this year, best birth control decision of my life.

as dumb as this sounds, for me it was more of being in the mindset of "I can squirt if I just believe in myself enough" than anything else. It helps if you're really relaxed and happy going into it. Never been able to do it if I wasn't in that state. For me, I also have to physically like, push my vaginal muscles outwards to make it happen. It doesn't just happen spontaneously, although for some people it can.

If you're worried about accidentally peeing, make sure you go to the bathroom beforehand and don't drink anything until you're done. Put down a towel just to be safe, too. Even if it does happen, try not to be too hard on yourself about it. I do notice a difference between squirting and peeing, but tbh it's not that pronounced, so it's easy to fuck it up. You might just have to accept that while you're learning.

No such thing as "squirting glans".
A vagina drool is one thing (it's just abundant production of the normal lubricant that vagina produces), "squirt" is an invention of porn industry.
It can easily happen to have pee stored in your bladder and the friction and poking by the dick can cause an involuntary release of piss (happened to me a few times, was really aroused and lost control of the bladder a bit); you can call it "squirting" if you like, but it's actually you pissing all over your man's dick while fucking.

NTA, but nobody is using that terminology. In my earlier post, I specifically mentioned the Skene's glands, which are glands located on the anterior wall of the vagina, near the urethra. While female ejaculation hasn't been definitively proven as being distinct from urine, a prominent theory is that the Skene's glands are the source of the ejaculation, rather than the urethra.

>"squirt" is an invention of porn industry.

I can't find anything corroborating the claim that even just the term "squirt" was invented by the porn industry. The concept of female ejaculation has been noted for centuries, and has been studied (albeit not much) by the scientific community. To claim the notion in itself is an invention of the porn industry is objectively false.

>It can easily happen to have pee stored in your bladder and the friction and poking by the dick can cause an involuntary release of piss (happened to me a few times, was really aroused and lost control of the bladder a bit); you can call it "squirting" if you like, but it's actually you pissing all over your man's dick while fucking.

This seems to presume that the bladder wasn't fully empty to begin with. Are you suggesting that you and others who have "pissed all over their man's dick while fucking" are somehow unaware that they had a significant amount of urine left in their bladders, despite having gone to the bathroom prior to sex?

>even if you start fucking and/or masturbating with an empty bladder, it can easily get filled during action anyway

Again, how is this happening? Where is the urine coming from? Did the person drink something prior to sex? Did they not fully empty their bladder prior to sex? Is their bladder magically filling with urine during sex/masturbation for some other
reason?

Women don't ejaculate as there is no biological need for a woman to ejaculate. Sex as much as transexuals and idiots want to believe is an evolutionary construct and there are biological reasons for orgasms. A female ejaculating does not make any sense. Women piss yes, but they do not ejaculate. We get wet when aroused to ease the entry of a dick, when females orgasm they tremor, which is the muscles in the vagina contracting inwards to help with sperm flow up to an egg.

Why in the fuck would a woman ejaculate when the goal of fucking at least in a biological sense is for impregnation. Squirting outwards is counter productive. It is mental that this needs to be explained to women.

Clearly it does bother you, since you took the time to reply to me in the first place, then ignored all my evidence/refused to respond to any of my points indicating that squirting may not necessarily be piss. The medical community hasn't been able to confirm what exactly is happening with women who supposedly "ejaculate," (I'll even put it in quotes, just to appease your sperging), so idk why you think you have all the answers regarding this topic?

It honestly sounds like you have some sort of issue with urinary incontinence and are assuming everyone who has ever purported to squirt has the exact same problem, and just can't own up to it. That may be true for some, but angrily insisting that ALL squirting is just piss, offering no evidence for this to be the case other than "I've pissed myself during sex before," just comes across as a cope more than anything else.

Never heard about "squirt" outside of the porn industry before - I believe modern scientific research were probably made just to "debunk" or at least clarify what is shown in porn movies, where actresses gush long streams of urine while being fucked.

Are you serious?
Pee in the bladder is not produced just as a result of drinking.
Never took a piss before going to bed and then waking up because you needed to pee despite it?
In my personal experience, I have "squirted" during sex in different occasions, a couple times because I did have a full bladder before starting to fuck (I literally felt my bladder releasing drops because of me being aroused and the dick thrusting in) but other times I peed before starting and bladder got full with new pee in mid action (same thing happened while masturbating, I usually pee before starting but after finishing the bladder is full).
You definitely sound like a man, you know nothing about how female genitalia nor bladder work.

Coming to terms with the fact that I just don't enjoy penetration all that much

I'm an oldfag, fairly experienced and after years of BSing about loving it (enduring it just so I could enjoy the other parts of sex) I'm trying to get more honest about what I like. I don't want to view this as something that's 'wrong' with me but it seems like every discussion I find on the topic just talks about ways to fake enjoyment or talks about exhausting every possible solution to the issue.. I want to move past the act tbh. I don't have any medical issues and I think 15 odd years of trying is enough to know that I don't like it. Has anyone else here dealt with this and got past the stigma of being treated like you're broken?

Even when I masturbate, I get turned off as soon as I try to use fingers. It's weird because everyone else seems to find it amazing.

"Squirting" still contains pee. It might mix with fluid from the Skene's glands, but there's still pee in it. That's just what happens when all those muscles are in the same area. The substance produced by the Skene's glands alone are too mucus-y to "squirt." It needs to be mixed with urine to be watery enough to be ejected out like that.

Can we just accept that not all women orgasm in a super obvious way, and that if you want to be a good partner, you should try to pick up on the other indicators of an orgasm (like muscle contractions).

Does anyone own period underwear or cups?

I was looking at getting some underwear to try but I am worried reviews I found on various websites/forums could be disingenuous.

Brand-wise, I whittled it down to Modibodi and Thinx, but the critiques I found is the fabric is water proof so it can get really smelly and stay sweaty everywhere underneath, period or not. Additionally, I read that the materials might actually have compounds which are harmful to ones health, or that they are only supposed to last about a year… Since they are pretty pricy I am hesitant about buying a pair but would really love to stop using tampons.

For cups, I read that you are supposed to boil it prior to each use to reduce Toxic Shock Syndrome? They also seem SO big, I am a bit narrow so I am struggling on what size to get or how to expect it to feel? Also would love to switch to a method of managing my period that requires no insertion…

I am leaning towards just using washable pads, however my period is a monster for the first 2 days and basically 7 days worth of blood and clots come out in 48 hours, so I need washable pads that can take a beating, be really absorbent, not smell like blood, and maybe last a while before I have to discard them and drop more money on new ones? I was hoping period panties would be able to simplify things but now I don't know.

Anyone have any experiences/thoughts/preferences?

No. 148452

>>148451
Been using a cup for five years now. Boiling before each cycle is good advice, but personally I just wash mine well with water and unscented soap whenever my period starts; I've never had a problem. I've accidentally dropped it on my bathroom floor maybe three times and that's the time I boil it for ten minutes.

There are plenty of online quizzes to take to determine what size cup is best for you, but the general rule of thumb is if your flow is regular and you've never given birth, size small should be just fine. If you consider yourself narrow, I'd recommend a small.

No. 148453

Yeah that! Sorry I couldnt remember the name.
There are also some asians that DO smell but they are never taught how to properly "take care " of the smell so they just dont do it.

Also I read somewhere that with age, you start getting some BO down in the vagina area, so thats why I said its good to wash it with (vagina-friendly) soap. Imagine if you washed BO with just water? It would just get worse.

Nta but I use pixie! It's very small compared to most cups. If you fold it like a taco, it's very simple to insert. I've been using one since September (and very often since my birth control is whack right now.)

Also, pro-tip when you're regularly washing them: Never wash in hot water or your cup will turn brown.

First ayrt here - I use a small local brand made in my country so I’m not sure if I can recommend it. But I would say a cup is good for 5-6 years: for example, I actually just recently replaced mine but only because the stem had broken off. The cup part still good.

I’m actually also interested in period underwear to wear on days when I think my period’s coming up, but yeah, the warnings about smell and stuff are making wary too.

Anons I can't tell if there's something wrong with me or if I'm just being paranoid. I feel like my urethra is too close to my vaginal opening, and also that it looks kind of swollen/puffy. Sometimes it burns while I'm masturbating. Wtf is going on. Is this normal? I got tested for a UTI and it came back negative.

anons I need some help. I think there's something wrong with my cervix but I'm not sure. It seems to be abnormally low, even when aroused. I can feel it by inserting my finger as deep as halfway through my first and second knuckle (~a bit over an inch) but the weirder part is that it's not in the centre, it sits on the left side of my pelvis. i can go "around" it with my finger and the virginal canal seems to be of normal length. I booked an appointment for a gynecologist but In on the waiting list for another 2 months. I'm very scared it might be prolapsed. Last time I had sex was years ago.

I didn't even know it was a thing for woman to get an annual check-up in other countries until I saw something trending about it on social media.

If you think it's a UTI try taking lots of d mannose for a few days ASAP.
It has literally worked better for my chronic UTIs than anything the doctor has ever prescribed me. I used to get them twice a month and I'd be in terrible pain, then be put of some vicious medicine like cipro and get a horrible yeast infection. Since I switched to d mannose, at worst I get a twinge once every few months, I take a low dose and it instantly disappears.
You may need antibiotics though if it's been going on a long time, especially if your back starts to hurt.

It's not "social media pressure", it's raising awareness because there's a lot of women who died of cancer at young age, which could totally be prevented if only they went for a check-up regularly, and a lot of them just didn't know it's a thing they should do. It's for your own good, dying of cancer is a really shitty way to die; but in all honesty, if you don't care about your health and life, you don't have to go. There are chances you'll be fine anyway.

I got two vaccines for the HPV types that come with the highest cancer risk but not the rest; and the only reason I got them is because my mom who is a nurse learnt about the possibility to have these from one of the doctors.

Some doctors are rough though. I think a good way to avoid trouble is to stick to a female doctor that has good reviews for being gentle, or going to planned parenthood.
I've read a testimony of a woman who went to the gyno when she was like, 15 and said she was sexually active, and when asked she admitted she had had multiple partners and the (female) gyno had a weird behaviour. Later she did her a pap smear that was especially painful and the woman suspects it was a sort of "punishment". Unfortunately I'm sure there's tons of doctors with shitty views who can't help but bring their useless morals in their work. Not that I think 15 year olds should have lots of sex but gynecological abuse is not the way to solve that.

How do you guys shave the "smaller" more "delicate" areas around your vagina? For example there is a bunch of hair on the outer vagina lips. I really don't wanna cut myself with the razor… Or should I just go and get it waxed?

Also I just looked into the vagina hole and for some reason there are some weird lumps right over the hole (like when you move away the inner lips and look into it). I had a surgery in the past were something had to be cut since I wasn't able to even fit a q-tip inside my vagina, could those lumps be leftovers from the surgery? My doctor never said anything and it also doesn't hurt.
I tried to describe it the best way I could and I'm too embarrassed to ask one of my friends.

I stretch the skin before I put the razor on. Sometimes I cover the delicate spots (like my clit) with my fingers to protect them.

As for the lumps, definitely get it checked out. If they're hard, they might be an STD/STI like HPV, but honestly there's no way to be sure if it's that or scar tissue or just normal vaginal lumps (I have them!) since you probably don't have frame of reference.

I think i mitht be broken, i avoid gynecologists like the plague and even talking about anything vagina related makes me sweat and get anxious. In fact i cried reading this damn thread (don't know why i did it).

It's not like i've been raped, only groped by some men i trusted, but still any reminder of woman body parts like breasts or uterus makes me anxious and pregnancy talk makes me want to die. I'm not trans either, i have no desire to live or look like a man.

It could be a phobia maybe? And you say 'only' groped. Girl, that's bad enough. You don't have to have been raped to feel anxious about your body if it's been used in a way you didn't consent to. All I can say though is please, please, please try and go to a gyno for a check up.

anon, I posted earlier in this thread how I never looked at my vagine before til recently, it's because of the same reasons you are dealing with. It fucking sucks and hard to say why this is a thing for us, but like other anon said the groping is enough to be super upsetting. So it could be that, but for me personally i think its cus lack of sex ed/society doesnt care for women to feel good/having to see how we are objectified 24/7. (And i was groped once too by a friend but just the thigh, still makes you hyper aware of your own body and how it is taken sexually). Imo that alone is enough to fuck us all up so this may not be so unusual.

It may be that slow exposure to the female body (mainly your own) could help. Thats basically what i am doing. Trying to learn more slowly, observe/touch, and yes i did cry too when i looked at pics and diagrams of vaginas. Really want to hug you tbh cus it is a strange experience. But i have faith we can both overcome, and go from disturbed -> testing waters -> tolerating -> loving/appreciating our body parts. But then maybe theres other options like therapy? Honestly what you said about getting groped by men you trusted is enough to have some trauma imo. Best of luck<3

I know there is nothing I can do or say to change your mind, but just know that I believe you have the power to do it.

Thanks anon. I'm sorry you feel this way too, it's really awful since we constantly need to deal with it, there is no break or anything, i hope you can move past it someday. Yeah maybe therapy would help in the future, i don't know if many therapists are equiped to deal with this though lol

I can look at mine (others freak me out), but touching or any feeling is weird.

We are treated as not default yeah. Another thing for me at least is that i find it digusting that i have certain body parts to attract a male and have kids and i absolutely DO NOT want that but i need to be constantly reminded of it since like 11. I hate that my body is designed for mens pleasure and for childbirth when i don't want to and that i suffer so much from it to be honest. Being a woman sucks and doctors don't help when they refuse things like letting me get my tubes tied.

>>150367
Thanks for the kind words. That might be it, i'm the same way, but even small tampons are too much. I can't even stand touching myself there directly too much, it freaks me out.

Honestly, my experience with doctors has not been like that, mine years ago were very dismissive and impatient like they didn't want to deal wirh a difficult patient so i never even let them see much less touch. But even if they're sweet i won't be able to, i really don't know what my state would be after and i'm already mid key suicidal.

I am so so sorry you're suffering because of this bullshit lie men create for us. Your body is only so much for men's pleasure as theirs is for ours, but that's meaningless. It really is true that sexual harassment is about domination and control. When men walk behind a woman and make demeaning comments about her ass (my friend's experience), or grope you, it can leave a strong sense of embarassment and shame. But that's their true intention, to override women's boundaries and get pleasure from the humiliation. It's ingrained into us that our bodies are the reason they do this, that they can't help it if they see an attractive woman with sexy features!! That we're baby makers or sex dolls. But you have to realize, and replace that internalization- I think you've internalized that message and so did I and others. But your body is NOT men's, it's not those features' fault for existing that all these expectations and actions take place toward them. Expectations and behaviors are external, they are men's and society's, but your body is there to serve you first and foremost. Sorry if I'm getting preachy I just am so sorry you have to face this bullshit that's not even fair or true. I hope you can come to appreciate your body because it exists for you, and its functions should be your choice. If someone asserts that you have to have babies or that your parts are for their pleasure, that's men's perversion. It doesnt have to be your reality.

(samefag anon, sorry for the sperging) Also, the fact you feel your body is for childbirth and for men is a reflection of culture and history. Those ideas have been pushed because men were driving the narrative, and didnt even acknowledge women as full people til relatively recent. You are a full person with wants desires and needs outside of your body's capacity to have babies. Think about it, if the world were different the same could be said about men's bodies, they're just for women's pleasure and giving seed. Lol it sounds weird but so does the other narrative. I just want to stress this view is really skewed and unrealistic and that women are not some kind of separate secondary being

Tea tree oil diluted with jojoba oil after shaving works great for me, and I have very coarse pubic hairs. Not shaving is what's really worked best in regards to having a healthy bikini area, though.

The tea tree oil has mild antiseptic properties and the jojoba oil mimics natural sebum without actually feeding/growing bacteria like sebum would. The jojoba also moisturizes the skin and hair. Just be sure not to apply any tea tree oil too close to your labia.

I am so glad I'm not alone with being fearful of vagina interaction. I really don't like doing anything with it because any form of insertion hurts like hell. Can't even do tampons.

I did, however, finally bite the bullet and had my first gyno visit today because I gave in to my need of needing to know if something is actually wrong with me. Turns out I have a ridiculously small vagina. Like, so small that the doctor couldn't even take a pap smear with the smallest… collector? because it made me cry and he couldn't get it in far enough. I am also still sore down there from the attempt and my appointment was 8 hours ago? Cool.

I was told that if I ever wanted to have sex or use even use a tampon, I would need to get a dialator (a very small one) and begin wearing that overnight but for some reason, that just feels gross to me because the only reason I know about dialators is because of trannies and their neovaginas. Never… did I consider real women used them.

but hey–at least I do have the knowledge there's nothing -actually- wrong down there–it's just fucking small and sensitive.

I once had a gyno tell me I had the longest vagina she'd ever seen in her 20+ years of practice.

I have a tiny vagina too! Same deal with Pap smears and tampons. On top of that, I have a very inflexible hymen. When I went to the gyno for the first time, she also said I might need dilators, but I never decided to bother using them. Penetration of any sort has always been painful and often felt practically impossible. Having PIV sex for the first time was highly traumatic because of how painful, uncomfortable and unsuccessful it was. I happily don’t date men anymore, and one of the many upsides is avoiding penetration. Clitoral orgasms have always been great on their own for me, so I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.

Women who've had certain types of cancer use them too. I'm in my thirties, been sexually active for over a decade and am a tampon user but I needed to buy a set post-cancer. I can manage average girth now (thanks to the set) but I still have an issue with length that might just be permanent.

I have pretty limited experience w sex (LDR for most of my adulthood, now married in person and only recently got over fear of penetration) so idk if this is normal or not, but I think the luve we're using is irritating my vagina? I notice itchiness after sex but only when we use the lube…its water based, and we're using condoms. Would that mean its just the lube and we should buy a different kind or could it be something else? We're only ever with each other so I highly doubt its an STD and I dont get it it when I masturbate or any other time.

I've always considered myself on the smaller side down there, even as an oldfag most of my toys are more like beginners toys because that's just what I can comfortably take. The last few months though I've noticed that when I use regular sized tampons..they leak before they are even full. Just start to leak almost immediately. Super tampons don't have that problem. I have a light enough flow but find myself using supers now just to avoid leaks.

I don't understand why smaller tampons would do that if its not an issue of 'fit'? But then I still struggle to take an average sized dick so I don't know what's going on there. Any ideas?

This gave me such anxiety when I was a late teen and young adult, I felt like such a weirdo when I started seeking out sex positive spaces simply because I don't masturbate, there was so much talk in those spaces about how good it is for your mental health and stress but there I was not really getting the big deal.

This is SO embarrassing but I've been worried and insecure about my clit for my entire life. It's way too big and it looks so weird. Even as a kid before I even had any form of sex education I knew something down there was different, and at one point I thought I actually had a penis (lol). As an adult it's still huge and very noticeable and sticks out through my underwear. The hood is really big too, the same size as my labia if not bigger.
It's made me terrified of relationships because I'm afraid my partner would react badly or think I have a disease.

Could I be intersex, or at least have weird testosterone levels? Asking that specifically because I also have a lot of body hair but I definitely don't have PCOS, like I have a trail of hair that goes from my crotch up to the bottom of my ribs. I'm really worried there's something wrong.

Clits come in various sizes and you shouldn't be having sex with anyone that makes you feel insecure about the appearance of your vagina anyway. I'm no doctor but judging from the body hair situation you could have higher than usual testosterone levels. Some women just are hairy though. Have you talked to your gyno or doctor about it?

No. 151663

afaik, clits just vary in sizes and there's nothing weird about big clit or big hood. Doesn't it mean there's more pleasure-space exposed? Mine is tiny and very hidden and sometimes so fucking elusive I can't stimulate it when having sex. So there's a brightside to everything, anon.

>>151463

not needing or liking masturbation is completely normal, BUT having feelings like fear or disgust tied to it is not. You should work through it and analize why and when those feelings appeared. Maybe you felt pressured (you said you only did it because of your bf?) and it's some kind of trauma now. If it bothers you, think about consulting a sexuologist. It can be really healing to talk about it with someone competent.

A bigger clit is generally caused by exposure to testosterone in the womb or just a higher than average testosterone levels

I have a big-ish clit after going through a gender phase and taking testosterone, men don't freak out over it. If anything it just makes it ten times easier for them to get you off. It's a body part made for pleasure so having one that protrudes a little.. comes with its benefits.

I'm so weird about my vagina. I never look at it. Only like top down when I'm shaving, but nothing sticks out although I do notice one lip can hang lower during certain times of the month.

If I masturbate it's always through fabric, it feels better mentally for me idk. I see the gynecologist and just let her assure me everything is normal and fine, is anyone else like this?

Simply masturbate vaginally. I started with one finger, then two, then vibrator. Use a lot of lube.

Is there such thing as having too small of clit? I always thought my clit was normal but I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend and he was trying to find my clit and help get me off and he told me it was really small and he never had any issues with his exes and that theirs were bigger and he was unsure he could get me off with it being so small. Ive been with a couple other men before and they never made any comments about my clit but I do remember both of them kind of having an issue with touching it properly in a way that felt pleasurable with me but they both did eventually figure it out and get me to orgasm.

Don't let stupid boys make you feel insecure, I'm sure if you told him his dick was smaller than all your exes he wouldn't like that either, but it's not like you would say something negative about something someone is born with and can't change because… Why would anyone do that?

I'm sorry but who in their right mind thinks it's ok after you've just had sex with your partner for the first time to then compare their genitals to the genitals of all your exes!!?… what the hell is wrong with this man?

Clits are small, even as a lesbian I need to get to know what works for each new partner that I have, it's not an anatomy issue, different strokes work for different women and it can just take a bit of communication to learn what works. You don't give up on the idea of them ever coming after one or two sessions. I'm way more concerned about the way he's talking to you (when you've only just started being intimate) and I'm less inclined to think you have some anomaly going on with your genitals. He sounds like a selfish lover if he's so quick to say this
> he was unsure he could get me off with it being so small
I'm going to say this is a red flag for him being a selfish lover and someone who is quick to misplace blame onto you, it reads as
>I'm probably not going to get you off, I've given up already, but that's your fault

Late reply but, I used a dildo before ever having sex. The first 5 or 6 times using the toy I still bled. It wasn't alot and it wasn't bright red either. It was pink (blood mixed with my own natural lube I guess) I wasn't expecting to bleed beyond the first time but everyones hymen stretches a little differently and mine was a tough one. I had pain for the first few sessions too but I liked that I had both control over it and privacy in that moment? It's not something I would've wanted to share with a partner.

Totally up to you whether you want to stretch it by yourself or wait.

Follow the advice other girls gave you, but also let me tell you from personal experience there was no blood for me when I broke my hymen, all me and my bf at the time noticed were tiny bits of skin. You know that type of skin where you bite the inside of your mouth and a piece of skin falls out? If you ever took it out of your mouth to see what it looks like - that's what a broken hymen looked like for me kek

Ive been dating my boyfriend for 6 years. He was my first everything and I his. I always needed alot of preparation for PIV but when I was wet enough it fit and didn’t hurt (sometimes a bit oncomfortable). I did bleed a Little bit often even though it didn’t hurt. I did feel like I was a Little bit too small but it worked.

Now last Year we couldnt have sex for a few months and now ever since it doesn’t fit. When we try with hours even of foreplay and lube it hurts too much. He doesn’t pressure me at all and doesn’t mind but I feel like a failure. I seem to rip at the bottom where my vagina ends and the border to my asshole starts. It also feels dry on the inside when i know its not. Sometimes i also rip after pooping or find blood there for no reason at all.

Even though my boyfriend is super sweet about it all I get more anxious every time we try which makes it even harder. These days we try maybe once every 3 weeks and fail every time. I once pretended it didn’t hurt and went through and I bled like hell…

I used to wear liners every day but I stopped bc I heard that makes it worse somehow bc it’s not breathable or whatever. Anyway, there are definitely days where it’s a lot more than usual (ovulation/nighttime) and when I go to the bathroom I can push some out so I guess it’s just preference if you for sure don’t want to risk that wet feeling. I would say try going without liners for a while and save them for times where you really feel it’s wet af.

My first proper boyfriend was touching me and was really focusing on one of my inner labia (it peeps out a bit from the rest of me) and I was just lying there thinking what the fuck is this guy doing?? I remember grabbing his hand and asking him what he thought he was doing and he said 'That's your clit, right?'. I felt so much second hand embarrassment I made him stop and we never did it again. The bit he was touching looks or feels nothing like a clit and it's about an inch lower. I swear to god.

The first (and last) person I was sexual with tried to finger me and he just vigorously rubbed the fuck out of my pusdy opening and it was starting to hurt so I made him stop and he had the nerve to ask me if I orgasmed, insanity. He was in his thirties. He didn't even know women didn't ejaculate like men. And he had had sex with at least 4 women before me.

I've been on SSRIs for a month and my clit has been completely numb since day one. Have any of you regained sensation/the ability to orgasm after enough time on them? I still get horny and wet but it's driving me mad that I can't get off.

With Fluoxetine, it stayed this way for me, until I stopped taking them. Citalopram made it harder for me to orgasm but it didn't completely take away all sensation in my clit like the Fluoxetine did, but even here it only got better when I stopped taking them.

Try eating more fish or fatty cuts of grass/pasture raised beef/lamb, as rare as you can enjoyably eat it. Healthy animal fat helps bowel movement and dry skin, and essential nutrient help reapir. If raw milk products are legal in your country, try that. If not, regular probiotics like yoghurt also work. Good bacteria helps calm the gut and vagina. Try cutting out or limiting grains, at least wheat, that really worsens ibs and dry skin in my experience. Reducing sugar intake also helps vaginal dryness in my experience, maybe it stops feeding the yeast idk.

I used to struggle with the exact same things. Dryness, tearing, blood, utis, yeast and bv. Always pain. Also have IBS, dry skin, and used to have a pretty bad diet, still pretty shit. But even just doing a little help a lot in my experience. Getting off hormonal bc also helped me, I suspect(know) they made me dry and thinned my mucosa, making me rip and get infections. So if you use hormonal bc, maybe try a different brand if thats possible? I can only use progesterone, so I couldn't try.

Also get a squatty potty if you haven't already, it will literally change your life.

I was on Citalopram for all of my teen years (12 to 19) and it's like I never went through the sexual part of puberty because of it. I never masturbated, couldn't understand the appeal at all. Came off it at 19 and omg I had a sexual awakening, I bought a bunch of toys and discovered orgasms and what it was like to have sensation in my genitals.

Fast forward a few years and I go back on it and become unable to orgasm again. Went numb like you said and didn't orgasm for the 8/9 months on it or for the first few weeks off of it. The sexual side effects are pretty shit.

OK, I know this is weird and insane but I have to confess. I'm literally turned on by my own vulva. When I look at it in a mirror I get aroused. I also often sniff my own panties at the end of the day and enjoy the smell. I have even fantasized about eating myself out and lamented about the impossibility of this act.

I don't consider myself a lesbian or even bisexual at all, I really do like men and I'm not really interested in other women, except this one actress, but only because I was told I look a lot like her. What the fuck. Maybe I'm just really vain.

I'll be real I'm embarrassed in even asking this, but is it normal for penetration for make you feel like you need to pee? I straight up have googled masturbation guides in the past & as far as I can tell the G spot is in fact the piss spot for me.
Usually this wouldn't be a big deal, I have a fairly low libido and when I do flick the bean, the bean is what I focus on. However, my girlfriend recently bought a strap on… I'm really worried I'm just going to pee all over her 10 minutes in. Help!

With a bit more experience the sensation might grow on you, but if not.. what shape is the strapon? If you're particularly sensitive and you find that 'urge to pee' feeling too unpleasant try to stick to very straight shaped toys.

There are quite a lot of theories about the G-spot, one of them links it with Skene glands, which are around the urethra area. It's an erogenous zone and they produce the female ejaculate, which comes from urethra. It's all linked basically. Personally, when I stimulate this area intensely I also feel the urge to pee - if you keep the pressure, you may ejaculate. For me it's a bit embarrassing because you never know when the ejaculation turns into straight up pee lol.
Don't worry about the strap on though. There's a chance you won't get the squirt-sensation from penetration. I only get it through external stimulation. But if you will, well, a lot of people are into that, communicate with your gf before. It's really nothing to be shy about, it's normal anatomy

Differentiating the different fluids that help in the regular maintenance and health of the vagina doesn't make it ejaculate anon. Women do not ejaculate, that would go against the evolutionary function of sex. Everyone who seems to experience squirting are also engaging in the muscles with the bladder and aware of the pee. It's peeing. You're peeing. You girls could stand to do a few kegels, you don't want to be in your 40s and wetting yourselves.

I've only experienced it after a ltr with my highschool sweetheart. We broke up for a period and I had sex with a few guys at college. When we got back together I think sex lasted good for a month or so then he disengaged. I don't know if it was because I slept with other people and he didn't, but our intimacy was way off and eventually it resulted in me never being able to take his dick. We tried. He could finger me and get me to cum, but I was in agony any time I tried to let his dick inside me. He wanted me to go to the doctor. I was too embarrassed. Cut to a year or two later and we had broken up and I was having sex with other people with no issues. I don't know if I ever had vaginismus but if I did it seemed to be mental. My highschool boyfriend ended up being a massive turn off to me before the shit sex, just his personality etc. He was 3 years older but once I left school and started working idk I must have overtook him in growth and he just seemed so unappealing. We lived together and he was unemployed the majority of the time, played xbox and did fuck all around the house even though I worked 40 hours a week with a weekly 8 hour commute time. That'll dry any vagina up.

What are other people's experiences on the pill? I read several damning pieces and anecdotes about it and came away thinking that messing with your hormones is pretty fucked up but recently my doctors think I may have PCOS and prescribed some to me. I've been taking them for a month and a half and I feel fine, if not a little better and slightly less dumb-aggressive and vicious at everything. Just a few expected changes with discharge and sore boobs but no acne or major psychological things, that's it.

Look at 3rd party reviews (Google, doctor rating sites). Check several doctors covered by your insurance if you have it and also look at reviews for the overarching medical center they're at. Shop around. Quality is entirely dependent on the individual regardless of gender. I happen to have a male gynecologist which I thought I would dislike, but he is a total pro and never makes me feel weird. Chats with me/generally distracts me while he does tests so I don't end up stressing over it, and for things like pap smears which I've heard horror stories about, he's never caused me physical pain. (Of course that's partly dependent on your body and not just a doctor's skill.) Anyway, point being he has excellent reviews on Google from women who have had to go through much more complicated procedures than me.

Hated it, anon. I was on it from 14 to 22 (for periods at 14 then sex from 17 onwards) and it made me feel like I was going insane. I didn't realise it until I took a break for a few months and I felt this clarity I hadn't felt in years. For so long I thought I was a crazy bitch, turns out it was the hormones. I ended up on the implant from then on, which did the same, but I just didn't want kids so I kinda negged myself into thinking it was okay for me to feel like this, just because I didn't want children. I have had enough of hormones now though, and next week, I am finally getting my implant removed and taking a long break from it all, to find myself again and let my body be in it's natural state. I dread to think of the long term damage it could cause, physically and mentally. That, and my family has a history of women getting human reactive breast cancers, so I want off it, ASAP. Good luck to you, anon. I hope it serves you well!

Sage if this has already been discussed, but holy shit Monistat 1 is the fucking devil. I stupidly assumed the pharmacy wouldn’t sell me literal vagina poison but that’s what I got. It’s a little weird creepy egg thing that you put in your vagina. Everything’s fine for the first hour. Then I started itching so badly. It felt like little gremlins were trying to scratch out my insides. I ran home and got in the shower. There were tears.

And there are hundreds of pages of reviews saying the same damn thing. Monistat 1 is too powerful. Scientists shouldn’t have created it. Stick to Monistat 3 and 7.

Okay anons, once and for all is squirting urine? I've only done it once years ago and it definitely felt like I needed to pee during and afterwards.

You could have an infection, should def go to a gyno.
I used to get yeast infections from stress also so that's possible. Also my discharge smells like hell after my period, could be something like that too.
I heard that if you wear pantyliners all the time it makes you produce more discharge and that was kind of true for me, when I stopped wearing them I'd get significantly less wet which was awesome.

I find myself wearing pads and panty liners every day and it's fucking awful. Does anyone else suffer from just being…. moist. All the fucking time. I can't stand it. It's uncomfortable. Doctor just said it's normal but I don't think she really understood how uncomfortable it is to just feel moisture 24/7. Can other ladies tell me for real if this is normal because I feel far too shy to ask anyone in real life. And is there anyway to fix this?

Give up the liners. It's possible they're making you actually produce more discharge. Also, they're much less hygienic than just "wetting" your panties. I'm also very "moist" and I don't like the feeling, it stays in underwear, gets cold, ugh. But that's how pussies are, I deal with it. If it's very uncomfortable I just change underwear.

Don't really know if it fits more here or in the masturbation thread, but I'm probably going to (finally) have sex for the first time in the following weeks/months, would you recommend getting a dildo so I can prepare myself for it? Based on pics of vaginas I've seen, I'm pretty sure I don't have a hymen (or it barely covers anything) and I've been using a cup for 8 years, I'm probably not super tight either.

I think they’ve got it the wrong way around, anon, lots of people get really horny just before their period due to the shift in hormones.

So I’ve just started having sex this year with a guy I’m seeing. We’ve been dating/having sex for almost a whole year, and every time after we have sex, I am so Itchy and irritated in my vagina. The itchiness is what was the most uncomfortable part, I went to PP ago even get a STD test/ check up and it was actually just a yeast infection.

Problem is, that was a couple months ago and I’m STILL getting yeast infecting seemingly every time we have sex. I pee before and after sex, but I’m not sure what’s wrong?

If anyone has any kind of advice I’d be very thankful. Is it anything I’m doing.I’m going to the doctors soon because the itching is just constant at this point,

I saw an article on this recently, I wish I could find it. I had this too, for different reasons, I had to go on an antibiotic, then a probiotic after. It comes back every so often still.
But back to the article, she got a pap smear done and the doctor identified a bacteria common in patients with reoccurring BV/yeast infections. There are some women who naturally produce this bacteria more, which leads to unstable levels of pH. Depending on HOW you're getting it (sex, tight clothes, swimming) I believe the treatment is different. Explain all your symptoms to your doctor and journal them. Also, mention any medications you are currently taking and what form of protection you're using… Also personally I thought I had a yeast infection for several months and the treatment never worked. Turns out it was actually vaginitis, and I had been giving myself the wrong treatment and making it worse. Sometimes if yeast infections go untreated they can progress and lead to BV or vaginitis. Make sure the doctor is giving you the right treatment plan and they know all of the factors that could possibly affect your current situation

Thank you for the info anon! I’m going to the doctors this week, I really hope it isn’t too serious , but I’ve only ever had a yeast infection once before all this and that was like in the 8th grade so maybe my PH balance is just more senses than I thought

I've said it before and I'll say it again because this simple factor can be overlooked: when you say he takes care of his personal hygiene, could it be he washes his dick too much? We are drilled about how we're not supposed to put soap into our vaginas but guys usually don't know this fact, they may soap up their dicks and wash it improperly and thus the soap particles get into you and cause you problems.

Unpleasant is really minimizing it lmao, maybe it depends a bit on the person but without painkillers it's probably the worst physical pain I've ever experienced. It was excruciating. I love sex but have at times considered whether it's even worth it due to how much it increases UTI risk. I've went through 3, and learned during the first one to just ignore painkiller max doses and shove as many as needed down my throat with that sweet placebo cranberry juice and sit in a hot shower until they kick in. I'm honestly not going to deal with that type of pain, and since it isn't very frequent, probably it isn't too detrimental. So yeah, as long as you have lots of painkillers in your cupboard and aren't afraid to use them, it'll be fine. If you don't, prepare for hell

No. 156782

AYRT and I had no idea it could be so painful, I'm sorry for minimizing it.

If you are sexually active then it seems likely to happen at some point. Just try and catch it early when it happens. Some women end up in a cycle of catching them and my doc explained that being slow to act on the first infection can play a role in it becoming an ongoing issue?

It is very rare for it to shed and infect someone through that route. She mostly needs to worry about herself getting another outbreak and then having sex - but that would likely be painful for her with an outbreak, anyway. She can get medication to reduce the percentage of shedding even further.

If she takes the medication for it, I don't see why she needs to disclose it given how low the percentage is that it would shed.

If you have an incurable STI and don't tell someone yoi have sex with, that's a crime- even if they have it themselves or another incurable STI.

Not telling people just because you're scared of being seen as "dirty", or whatever embarrassment you're trying to avoid, is essentially rape by deception.

I would press charges if I found out my new sexual partner had herpes and simply decided that I didn't need to know. There are people who are terrified of catching an STI who get tested before and after every new partner and take extra care to stay disease free, so trying to undermine that to avoid the consequences of not being certain of your partner's status before you rawdog is beyond just shitty or unethical.

Serious answer, masturbating in the shower (to deal with the mess). I notice when I get cramps there's almost nothing on my pad, like my uterus is pushing hard to let the blood out. After I masturbate the flow becomes heavier and more consistent and the cramps go away for a couple hours until I have to do it again. Also, idk if it's just me growing old but my periods only last 3-4 days since I started my "habit", compared to around a week before.

Slightly OT, but I didn't know where else to take this:

The menstrual pads I use keep wearing down my underwear, eventually leading to small holes and ruined fabric. I try to peel the pads off slowly and gently, but this still won't let me take them off. The wings will simply bunch together around my underwear and only scissors could be the substitute to a hard pull. My underwear isn't big enough for the wings not to overlap. I was considering wearing boxershorts when on my period to lessen this problem, yet I don't always feel comfortable in them and the constant friction and glue still harms the fabric. The brand of pads I use is yoni, which is more on the expensive side and of better quality. Does anybody else have this issue and any tips on how to save my underwear from my pads' betrayal? Thanks in advance

No. 157676

If I have to wear pads, I use the infinity flex shit or the massive phonebook sized overnighters. It's adhesive, so it's going to fuck up your panties anyway over time. Just get some shitty Hanes or something that you can wear just on your period, then it won't matter if it gets stained or holes

No. 157688

Is there such a thing as angled vagina? I think my vagina is asymmetrical because when I wear pads it always bleeds on one side that is far left it even bleeds outside of the area that absorbs best and when I use cups I've noticed that I have to go sideways a little to be able to insert correctly.

My goďdamn labia minora on one side keeps getting this zit the size of the head of my pinky.

Is my vagina normal? Fingering/inserting things has never done anything for me. At worst it's painful and at best it was just uncomfortable. Like having a finger in my ear. I thought I had vaginismus for years but learned I don't actually struggle with getting things up there just with feeling anything pleasant.

Weirdest part is when I have something inserted I just stop moving. Like I don't even tense up it just causes me to freeze and wait until its over. I've never been sexually abused (except for someone trying to grope me through my clothes) I don't have any trauma from this that I know of but maybe its a subconscious thing. I'm worried I'm never going to feel anything good there and just going to have to give up.

A lot of women don’t get anything out of penetration. You didn’t mention whether you’ve had sex before. By myself I’ve never been interested in dildos or fingering, it doesn’t do anything for me. When I’m with a partner there’s a psychological element that’s hot, but that’s it. I think many, if not most women feel the same.
> when I have something inserted I just stop moving
This, and what you said about feeling uncomfortable at best when something’s inserted, is concerning. Does this happen in situations where you’re already turned on? When there hasn’t been enough foreplay I’ve felt some pain or been uncomfortable, but if it’s all the time then that’s abnormal. If you feel like this even when you’re aroused and with a partner you’re comfortable with, then something’s up. You should see a gyno if you haven’t. I don’t think you have vaginismus either because a friend of mine has it and she had to use tiny little dilators every day, but it could be some other vagina problem. If it’s not medical then you could get therapy, but don’t feel like you have to. It’s fine if penetration just isn’t for you.

I haven't had penetrative sex because it would just be terrible for me and the other person. I have done hand stuff with someone I liked, I was attracted to them but the act didn't feel good to me. The feeling something moving around inside makes me feel sick but I didn't want to do anything to ruin the moment so I just…let it happen awkwardly. I can get wet when I touch my clit but even after that I can't seem to feel anything nice. I really want it to feel nice and keep going after clit stuff but I guess I have a mental block about it.

It could definitely be a mental block. My friend with vaginismus I mentioned was raised Catholic and had a neurotic mother. Even though she wasn’t religious anymore, the sex = bad thing was so engrained in her brain that her vagina locked up. Past painful experiences could also be making you nervous and tense up your muscles. I still think you should see a doctor to rule out a medical issue. Some women are born with different anatomy like an imperforate hymen, where the ring around the opening is thicker than usual. Just don’t stress about being somehow abnormal, because tons of girls have been in the same situation.

Does anyone know how long an episode of "breakthrough bleeding" is supposed to last? TMI warning for gross period details.
I take the birth control pill and I've probably skipped maybe 5-6 months worth of periods with these pills because my period is super heavy and painful and stressful and I hate it. Like, the bleeding would last for 2 more than weeks and I ended up becoming anemic because of it.
Anyway, it's been smooth sailing for the most part, but I wanna say about 2 or 3 weeks ago when I started bleeding again. It's nowhere as heavy as it usually is, but it's accompanied with a fair bit of cramping, and the color of the blood ranges from dark brown to deep red. There's also the fact that it's shown no signs of stopping for a while. At first I thought it was because I slipped up on taking pills and missed a couple / took some later than I should have, but because of all the bleeding I've been very diligent about taking my pills at the same time every day. And yet, the bleeding won't stop.

There's this soft foam cock ring (cock donut?) thing that you can make your partner wear so that they don't go all the way in, it acts like a bumper.

Also if it used to not always hurt before maybe you have a vaginal prolapse? Like your vagina shifted out of position or something, it can happen even to younger women.

I'm too embarrassed to ask this anywhere but here, but does anybody else like to taste their own discharge and juices? Occasionally I'll stick a finger inside and see if I can scoop anything out and taste it. I like it when I'm near ovulation best, I hate that stretchy egg white texture in food but somehow I really like it when it's my own stuff. It doesn't taste especially good, mostly like sour yoghurt, but I'm the same with snot too. I did this today but now I'm reflecting in the bath wondering if it's abnormal to do this or if it's a secret thing everybody does.

my bf and i have been having unprotected sex during the last few months and in the last week i've noticed
>excessive vaginal discharge that literally reaches my ass while i'm sleeping (every time i wake up i feel like i'm on my period)
>color of the discharge hasn't changed but now it smells exactly like bo (my private parts only really smell 1. right after sex and 2. right after a long workout so that's unusual for me). doesn't smell fishy but more like a really sweaty body part
sometimes i can smell the odor even when i'm wearing pants and it's so disgusting. the last time that happened to me was like… during childhood when i didn't know what a bidet was

Anons tasting themselves got me thinking, what is a healthy pussy even supposed to taste like? I've kissed my partners right after they ate me out and I definitely don't taste sour at all. If I had to describe it I'd say it's sweet but it's so so mild it barely tastes like anything. I've had partners compliment the taste. Aren't vaginas supposed to be mildly acidic though? I feel like sour is the logical taste to something thats acidic. Is my pH balance fucked or does it just come down to your diet?

Are you using the nuvaring alone or with condoms? I've been on it before and personally ended up not trusting it enough to rely on it as a solo method. I have two friends with nuvaring babies already and I felt like at times I wasn't getting a steady dose of hormones on it.

> If you use it perfectly, NuvaRing is 99% effective. But people aren't perfect and it can be easy to make a mistake — so in reality the ring is about 91% effective. That means about 9 out of 100 ring users get pregnant each year.

I recently switched to zero waste menstrual items and I'm having an absolute shit time. Please help.

I bought reusable pads and I've bled through into my underwear each time I've worn them (no cup/tampon), even when changing them at the same frequency as the disposable pads I've previously worn. I've been going through three to four in day. I only own 6 reusable pads at the moment and don't have a washer/dryer in my apartment so I've been washing them by hand in a sink with color-safe bleach. How many should I expect to own? Is 6 a reasonable amount? I'm also unsure of how to handle a soiled reusable pad if I'm out. I haven't encountered an instance yet where I've worn it out of the home because of quarantine.

I also bought a Saalt menstrual cup in small and soft, and I have not been able to insert it correctly once. I've struggled with vaginismus and have a smaller vaginal canal with a low cervix, so I'm sure my anatomy is a contributing factor. The closest I've gotten to success is having the cup uncomfortably hang half-way out my vagina. Every other time has been so painful and frustrating I've been in near tears and insertion was totally unsuccesful. I can't seem to get it in deep enough, and most of the time the cup is slipping through my hands because I've lubricated it with water and the folds are prematurely unfurling. I'm considering switching the Saalt Teen cup in hopes that the smaller size will help with successful insertion, but I'm not sure how useful it will actually be.

Does anyone have any tips/suggestions/etc for zero/low waste period options?

No. 160479

>>160477
re: soiled pads, usually just stuff them in a baggy until you get home.

you should be able to wear just the pads unless your flow is super heavy if you have vaginismus, but are you sure you got the right kind? which manufacturer was it?
the maxi kind are supposed to have several absorbent layers as well as be larger but i know some etsy sellers just make them bigger and still say they're for "heavy days" when they're not.

how many pads you own depends on you, how many times would you need to change a normal pad per day? for reference, i got three of two kinds (liner and normal) to use over two days and wash/reuse as needed, but my flow is not heavy at all.

re: cup, the issue seems to be that you're not inserting it deep enough rather than the size of the cup itself. it's not supposed to sit that low, and you should also trim the stem so it doesn't irritate you. if it unfurls prematurely it could be too stiff? a good clue is if you can't keep it folded and it presses on your bladder/makes you want to pee.

If you haven't cut the stem on the cup that's usually the first recommended step. if it opens up too early try a different fold method the one that usually works for me is the punch down fold since that's the one with the smallest insertion. The smaller sized cup will most likely be the best bet or even googling to see if you can find a more shallow mensural cup/disk like the lumma.

Sorry I’m not the original anon but as a fellow newb to menstrual cups I’d appreciate advice as well if you don’t mind. I can insert mine all right (I’ve used the first two methods shown) and when I take it out it’s like 2/3 full after an 8-hr day so it seems like it opens at least to some extent.

The Lumma Unique in large works for many people. If it's okay to make a little waste before buying something that may or may not work, get a package of instead softdiscs to see how you like it.

I can only leave a tampon in the same amount of time as you for the first few days of my cycle yet I can have my cup in for a full 8 hrs and it still won’t be full. I always thought I have a heavy flow and maybe I do, but seeing it all gathered in a cup puts in perspective how it’s really not that crazy, it’s just more than a tampon or pad can absorb. I do use the large cup size for those first days from the company June, but it’s not painful or uncomfortable to get it in. The first few times were definitely odd and took a while (I would say be comfortable with putting a finger or two inside yourself since you have to push them in a ways) but after that it became less of a struggle.

This is gonna sound dumb but - I've been a menstrual cup user for some years now and in the day I can handle it pretty swimmingly. I've gotten a sense of how often I should empty it, especially on my heavy days. What I STILL can't get a hang of is my heaviest night. I have awful leaks even if I usually only sleep 8 hours which is what most cup guides say is safe. When I pull the cup out in the morning it's pretty full, which tells me it still catches blood but I'm guess either I still bleed more than it can handle, or at some point in my sleep my muscles relax enough that blood gets past. I've read a couple sites suggest I should just buy a larger size cup for a heavy night, but I'm not sure. Should I just tough it out and keep wearing a safety pad?

For the past month or so, my pubic mound and the outside of my labia have been so itchy. I can see that the skin gets kind of dry and flaky, similar to how my skin looks when it's dry and I have an eczema flare up, but I'm not really sure what to do since I don't know if using cortizone cream around that area is a good idea. Also is it even possible to get eczema flare ups around your pubic area? I also occasionally get these inflamed bumps around the area and I can't tell if they're ingrown hairs or a result of me scratching so much. I don't shave, so it's not an aversive reaction to shaving, though occasionally I do pull out my pubic hairs because it gets so damn itchy and sometimes that makes the itch go away (weird I know). Have any farmers had a similar experience? Why is my skin around that area so itchy and what can I do to make it stop?

I tried two menstrual cups (one firm/one softer) and my pelvic muscles just won't chill with one in.

I use a cup and a washable cloth liner. if I'm at home I'll just use a thicker cloth pad.

cup took some getting used to and hurt myself a couple times with first use but once you get the folding method down for insertion and removal, it's plain sailing.

This is embarrassing to ask, but how do you properly clean yourself? All I've learned from the internet is that you're not supposed use soap on your vagina and not to douche.
Sorry for the phrasing now, but the way I do it is squatting in the shower, spread everything, point the water there and "wipe"(???) everything off with my fingers until I feel I'm clean. Is this wrong? That's not what douching is, right? Also, is it fine to use bodysoap on that area as long as I don't put it directly in (I'm so sorry omg) the hole (which I think is actually the vagina? Instead of like…the whole area…?) down below? Or should you just use soap on the area where your hair grows? Again, so sorry, I'm so confused about all the terminology….

This might be really tmi but I wash my rear the same way. Is there some kind of risk of like…particle contamination or something like that? Or can I keep going like this lmao

No. 160876

Just using water to clean regularly should be fine for your vagina (I also use just my hand to rub clean between my vulva/labia and that’s worked fine my whole life). A mild soap or wash is fine on the outside just be careful not to let it go in your actual vagina because that messes with the ph and you could get an infection. Something like a gentle baby soap is your best bet overall compared to something with a lot of fragrance and ingredients. But yeah main thing is to leave your actual vagina alone because it’s self cleaning anyway!

I have severe cramp pain/heavy bleeding and the last time I used a tampon was in high school, I bled through it in about an hour and almost passed out from pain in the hallway so that experience ruined it for me. Half the time I use tampons I can tell I put it in wrong because I have to push it in at a weird angle so that it sits deep enough and I hate dealing with that (idk how people use the ones with no applicator).

Porn and vaginismus have fucked my perception of what a vagina is supposed to be like. I avoid porn now and the vaginismus has completely gone, but still have questions.

How big is the vaginal opening supposed to be? Confused why some holes are almost invisible and some are around the size of the woman’s nail.

What level of tightness is normal? When my muscles would seize up it was impossible to get a finger in and now I can without resistance, it should feel like an achievement but I feel loose lol.

there aren't any hard and fast rules anon. i think it depends on the tissue surrounding the opening. i rarely watch porn anymore but it seems some women have more of a smooth appearance with a clear opening, others, like myself don't, cause of the 'tissue'. sorry this is hard to explain. basically though there's no such thing as how a vaginal opening is 'supposed' to be. we're all different.

>What level of tightness is normal? When my muscles would seize up it was impossible to get a finger in and now I can without resistance, it should feel like an achievement but I feel loose lol.


i can keep a finger out if I tense my muscles too but when I'm turned on it'd slip right in lol. you're not 'loose' if you can do it without resistance, you're just relaxed/turned on, how it's meant to be

>can the average anon just hop on a dick with no discomfort

for me personally, no. even if i'm incredibly turned on/have been working up to it for a long time and am super wet it still hurts on first insertion, like a little sting before, but after that it's fine. always need lube too to help things along. tbh i think i have some stubborn leftover hymen (like I was mentioning above, calling it 'tissue'??

my routine is super simple and basic but I get no ingrowns, which is a miracle because i get mad ingrowns on my legs

step 1. trim my pubic shorter
2. grab one of those exfoliating gloves, get it damp with hot water and just rub the entire area i'm gonna shave, pretty thoroughly too. i want all those dead skin cells gone
3. use a shave gel (currently using one from kiss my face but have used simple bar soap before no issue) all over where i'm gonna shave
4. shave! some people say always use a fresh razor each time but i find that so wasteful/expensive so i use the same disposable one maybe 5 times.
5. i try and shave with the grain but shaving your labia majora can get tricky so i often go in all directions lol
6. hop in the shower and use the exfoliating glove again (i swear exfoliation is the most important thing)
7. once out the shower i use an oil, like coconut or jojoba and just kinda hang out before i get dressed so the oil can absorb

that's basically it. now and then i will get a little itchiness as the hairs grow back and maybe an ingrown but nothing serious. hope this helps in some way, anon

Curious, has anyone here ever actually managed to look at their cup after pulling it out and see what measurement their blood reached? I always pull mine out on the toilet so my hand instinctively just tips it downward to empty it. I feel like if I tried to lift it up to read it i’d just slip and drop the cup in the toilet bowl. Should I just practice not automatically emptying it?

No. 161066

>>161059
sorry i don’t have an answer but, as a cup user, does the cup actually go all the way in you? I’ve been trying for months to use a cup, have two sizes actually, a small and a teen sized one, and i can’t make it work.
I’m afraid it’ll get stuck inside me. I haven’t had sex so maybe that makes it more difficult but still it’s super annoying.
Does the stem of the cup go in too? Or is it supposed to stick out of your vagina? And removing it seems extremely hard, i can barely get my fingers in there while inserting it.
Sorry again for sounding like a minor, i swear im 25 im just a huge loser lol

Same worries here, I've always worn pads and have never worn a tampon ever in my life. But I wanna give cups a try.

Uhh do I have to go knuckle deep in my vaginal canal when removing or inserting it? cuz thats pretty daunting tbh. I'm pathetic ik.

No. 161080

>>161059
If your cup doth not overfloweth, then I see no reason that you'd have to examine it before emptying it. Unless you're just curious about the amount collected? In that case then just be conscious of… not tipping it out automatically? Idk why you'd think it would slip, just do whatever you normally do to reach the stem and break the suction, pull it out until you can grasp the bottom of the cup with your other hand, then hold it up for examination.

>>161066
>>161077
Look at the picture in >>160535 response, that's how far it has to go in. The stem has to be inside you, yes. It cannot get lost inside you, your cervix is the "end" of your vagina and the farthest a cup can go is to sit right against it. If pulling the stem isn't enough and it feels stuck you just need to push against the base of the cup to break suction. You will likely at least be up to the first joint on your index finger, probably not to the knuckle but you do have to push it in a ways. Make sure you're relaxed, your vagina can expand more than you'd expect to accommodate a cup.

Pad-only anon, this will likely take more time as you need to get used to the initial sensation of being "up in there" but I promise you're not going to damage anything so long as you go slowly.

I got a paper for cervix cancer detection and I wanted your opinion on if I should do it. I'm 27 and I never had sex, which is the main factor in cervix cancer, and cancer cases are non-existent on both sides of my family (I don't even have an obgyn lol). I don't really want to do it but is it still worth it to get checked? (I live in a country with free healthcare so money is not a problem)

No. 161093

Word of warning, everything >>161080 said is correct but for some women, menstrual cups can worsen your cramps. I really loved my cup at first (convenient, less waste) but it made my cramps 10x worse and it was weird and painful fishing around for the cup. It was hard to break the suction and get a grip on it for me, the stem gets really slippery and the edges of the cup sometimes expand too far and scrape my walls when removing or inserting. I don't know if I'm doing it wrong or if it's just not for everyone, but I would advice practicing with it while not on your period to avoid getting a handful of blood and to find out whether it's comfortable beforehand.

>>161091
Yes, always get stuff like that checked just in case. If you're talking about a pap smear, it will only take five minutes and it's not nearly as uncomfortable as I was led to believe. If you have good healthcare, then go for it!

Also depends on what brand you're using anon. Sounds like you might've had one that was way too firm? I can recommend June as one that feels pretty soft and non-irritating to me. Softer cups may need more coaxing to open up once they're in, but they're less likely to feel so uncomfortable.

Do it, i am a virgin yet had cell changes (shit english, I guess that's what they're called in english) and had to have biopsies taken thrice, pap smears thrice or 4 times. Apparently it's most likely just me being prone to cervical and vaginal infections/irritation, that also gave the false alarm in the bloodwork for cancer screening. Still have to go for screenings every few months for biopsies and shit but you never know, I didn't really have any issues but they also told me that being a virgin never rules that shit out, you could get hpv even as a young kid from no sexual contact and blah blah blah.

I had the same experience. I had a job for a few years where I would get all sorts of both sex toys and other intimate products for free to test so I've tried 5 or 6 cups aswell as buying a couple of brands I couldn't get for free. For me the dealbreaker is the extra cramps. I'm lucky in that I get pain free periods or just a few hours of cramps most months. When using cups I cramped the entire time of my period and I was miserable trying to manage pain that I usually don't have.

I've experienced it the odd time that I buy super-plus tampons too. I guess some of us are just extra sensitive. I'm back to using tampons and I use the smallest ones that I can to minimise cramping. On my period right now and I haven't needed one painkiller this month because I'm at home using light flow tampons and just changing them often.

If the sudden change has you worried, just ask your doctor at your next checkup. Personally I've never had classical menstrual cramps. Mine are pure ass pain with some sudden anal cramping.

My symptoms have cleared up but I don’t know how much longer I can take this bleeding every day or how long it will go on for. I’m just really frustrated because I hate being on my period so much and my dr assured me it would shorten them.

Anon, the signs you described are expected especially if you have history of irregular period. You should consistently take it for at least 3 months until your cycles stabilized.

In the mean time, start documenting how many tampon/pads and duration of the bleeding.

You should see your doctors if you start having shortness of breath, chest pain, severe postural dizziness, swelling of legs, etc.

If you’re still concerned, ask your doctor if they can do a hgb/hct to check if you haven’t lost too much blood.

A pregnancy test would also be done to r/o ectopic pregnancy.

Glad to know you’re doing better.

And no, it’s not possible to have ectopic pregnancy if you are not sexually active.

If you continue to have persistent bleeding after 3 months of consistent OCP usage, I would recommend a visit with your doctor. They may want to do some work-up in that case. Again, keep a diary of bleeding (day, duration, amount of tampon/pad, associated symptoms) as a record so that they don’t send you home for observation.

What do you want OCP for? If it’s for cosmetic effects, you’re better off saving money for a breast implant.

If it’s for contraception, the side effects of scronyx are not bad. Most common side effects are nausea, no period, and headache. [Also, OCP (oral form) does not cause weight gain]

The nasty sides effects you’re thinking of are not that frequent unless you are a smoker, have history of uncontrolled hypertension, migraine, uncontrolled diabetes, DVT, etc.

Otherwise, just pick one and sticks with it.

I’m genuinely terrified to take my birth control. I picked up ortho tri-cyclen on Monday and I’m supposed to start on Sunday according to my gyn, but I regret not telling her I don’t want to go on it. It felt like she was hoping I would say yes, so I did. I stupidly felt like I “owed” it to her for making my pap go smoothly after I was traumatized by a previous attempt by a different practitioner. That actually felt like a horror movie. I know they tried to do it carefully but it felt like they weren’t and the pain distressed me so badly I couldn’t move past the experience for a few days, and was very lethargic. Anyways my period is messed up, but for the most part I don’t even mind it. It’s bearable. But I can’t shake this worry that the pill is going to fuck me up even more, or I’ll react badly to it and will never recover.

This is a bit embarrassing to ask, I'm sorry. So, anyway: Today was the first time I actually took a mirror and tried to look at myself (yay for me i guess). Main reason for that is, when I try to touch myself I sometimes go over this part that feels kinda as if it's scraping(????) me. From what I've seen it's directly in front of/next to the urethral opening. And like…is this normal? Or common? Or does at least some other anon know what I mean?? As stupid as it sounds, it literally feels like some small kind of thorn or claw, even though it's just skin it feels "sharp" also, i've been feeling incredibly squeezy since i've directly touched it, idk what that is. I don't think it's something to be worried about since I've noticed it like one or two years ago the first time and neither am I dead yet nor have I had any troubles down there except letting water sometimes, but when I google anatomy stuff about the vagina and the whole area around it I don't think I ever saw it mentioned even if they describe every other little detail in the text.

Are you wet before the dick goes in? Does it happen more often in the winter season? Does it get better with lubricant? Are you feeling stressed lately? Got tested for STD yet? Recent childbirth? Recent trauma to the area?

The fact you feel pain after sex makes me think it’s secondary vaginismus 2/2 lack of lubricant. I do not recommend lubricant cuz some people get itchy from it. If you need it, try the water-based not the oil-based.

It could also be psychological. Are you having sex with a new partner of the same one.

Lastly, could be infection. STD like vaginitis and herpes could cause pain that is exacerbated by sex.

Either way, try lubricant, try not to tense up during sex. If neither works, maybe it’s time to see your doctor to get checked out.

Found out I just have a chronic tendency to have an irritated cervix BUT I noticed when wiping that I felt looser. Like, tmi but I would sometimes hear like fart-y sounds when wiping and was worried that it was a sign of something sinister. Asked my gynoncologist and she told me that it was absolutely a possibility my shit just got stretched by all of this, especially with me not having any regular penetration past.

The ortho evra patch? Don't recommend.

I took it for almost a year. The hormones on this method are STRONG and the risk of a blood clot in your thighs is increased, take note.
WHILE I was in it everything was fine, but the patch is disgusting. This was 5 years ago so idk how much it's improved but the glue would attract lint and slide around. Hot baths will make it slide off. It might just slide off your back if your shirt rides up when you sleep. Not convenient and cute like the mid 00's ads for it made it look.


AFTER: insurance called and said they don't cover it anymore so I just stopped. 4 months later my acne went from mild to severe. (Not cystic but insanely inflamed and riddled with white heads).

It went down by the summer but the state if my acne has not fully recovered, and I may some day commit to going on Accutane.

Even at my most aroused I wasn't previously this wet and so on. For a few years before this I didn't really have regular sex bc useless coomer bfs or single or stuff, so maybe the factory shut itself down so to speak

How do I learn to tighten my pelvic floor muscles without tightening my stomach muscles? I just can't do it at all not even once

No. 162865

>>162860
Stopping your pee mid-stream will help you identify the correct muscles. Can you do that without tensing your stomach? (Keep in mind you shouldn’t do this repeatedly)

You can get kegel balls for pretty cheap which might help you isolate and focus on the pelvic floor. It’s a mental hurdle that can be hard to overcome but it’s like learning to ride a bike. Keep practicing and you’ll eventually get there.

Ugh, fuck it, I'm anonymous, I'm just gonna post it. Sorry for the stubble/weird lighting, I'm obviously not planning an OF debute.

What is wrong with my labia majora? Why is it so weird/asymmetrical? Why doesn't it transition smoothly into my mound? It used to be worse but I'm so insecure about it I paid nearly 2k for fillers to try to make it more even. I'm considering paying more. Obviously none of my partners have ever said anything but I never really let them down there. Ive always refused to be eaten out and everything, won't do positions or nudes that would show that area.

I've never been able to find anything online describing this kind of problem and obviously I've never seen anyone else with it.

I know it shouldn't matter but it's something that really bothers me. Even if I was the only person to see my own cooch for the rest of time I'd want to fix it just so I don't have to notice it's weirdness when I shower or something. Looking at the pic it seems like I'm being extra dramatic but it's way worse seeing it proper, I'm just not willing to try to take another pic to better display my weird fucking genitals…

Your body would have just naturally flushed it out. There may be rare instances where it get stuck somehow, and you'd probably get an infection and have to go to the doctor.

Trimming is OK since you'll still have hair around. Also this mostly goes for the lip hair anyway, shaving/trimming your mons pubis does not affect your genital health that much, at most it can get irritated with ingrown hairs. It was actually a replacement teacher/medical student doing afternoon lessons of computer sciences in high school who first warned young girls not to remove our pubic hair for health reasons, for the same reason the article you cited. He was also teaching guys about the existence of the clitoris, he was a weird one, that guy. But I did not get pervy vibes from him, he was liked to educate and had no sense of boundaries.

First, >>164708 it's just by far your easiest and quickest option. But if you can't wait..
>Is it possible to feel your hymen on your own?
Absolutely.
>If so what would it feel like?
Hard to say because there seems to be a considerable variance of size (coverage), thickness, texture, shape, elasticity, etc. In my case it felt most similar to cooked poultry lung (e.g. like Christmas goose which we don't use stuffing for here) - it's soft, slimier than inner labia, vulva, etc., and when you press it on both sides it feels much more elastic/bouncy than the rest of the vagina. Allegedly, it's supposed to be "in principle" like a natural membrane that is supposed to come off from its periphery, and now that I don't have I can definitely pinpoint its original "boundaries" through touch.

Ultimately, there's A LOT of misinformation regarding the hymen, which is a damn shame for both cases at the end the spectrum: Ignorant male doctors that can't really perceive it with accuracy (e.g. no matter how much you tried you'd never know what having a penis feels like), not enough studies that encompass all the variations, and feminists who try to make it an ideological issue (e.g. virginity - inb4 derailing). Point being that there isn't a "perfect" guide that you can find online, afaik, that will give you the exact answer you're looking for, which means a lot of what you'll find outside of very strict literature will be anecdotal.

>feel weird for having trouble with tampons

DON'T BE. Never ever believe the pretension that tampons are this default natural option that all women somehow should be immediately used to and be comfortable with. I absolutely hate tampons but I have no issue with sex. Some women are very tight until they are aroused. With that said, that doesn't mean the reason isn't that you have your hymen intact.

Is it really that abnormal to bleed the first time being penetrated? I told my ex fwb about it and she said I was crazy and disgusting for it and that my vagina is abnormal if I bled and she never wants to touch me again. We haven’t ever had sex since.

Don’t know if it was her being an abusive alcoholic shithead because she’d be mean to me randomly and was often drinking, also said she finds vaginas disgusting despite claiming to be lesbian. Or if my vagina really is/was abnormal.

Sometimes when I go to pee after sex there's this super tiny red spot on the toilet paper. It looks like fresh blood and is sometimes kinda pink, presumably because of being mixed with semen.

I feel like one of the most exaggerated tips I always read in teen girl magazines was the warning to not take a bath while menstruating. I've almost always take a bath while on my period, never had uterzs lining swimming in the bathtub (I rinse out my labia and asscrack with a little water before) and never had bathwater seeping out of my birth canal, because I don't sit there with legs and labia spread lying on my upper back like some human vacuum cleaner. I don't really get why it was mentioned all the time. But I'm also a very light bleeder, so others might have had accidents.

I think I ruined all sensitivity because I grew up doing a lot of horseback riding and bmx/mountain/dirt biking; pretty much all of my hobbies included straddling something hard and rigid for long periods of time lol. I have memories of improperly landing in the saddle on a bucking horse or landing really hard on my bmx bike and essentially crushing my pussy on the saddle or seat. I don't have any memory of breaking or even having a hymen though it would make sense if it broke when I was mountain biking around 7 or 8. So now I don't feel sexual pleasure when I touch my clit or vagina. It's not painful or uncomfortable, it's just the feeling is a neutral as picking your nose, maybe even more numb. Ever since I started masturbating I can only have an orgasm by laying on my side and pressing down really hard on my clit with very minimal motion. I can also have an orgasm by using a vibrator, but I wish I could just feel good during sex. I enjoy sex for mostly psychological reasons. There are fleeting moments when penetration feels sexually pleasurable but it's kind of random when it happens. I've been with different sizes and it's all similar. I've tried relaxing and closing my eyes and touching my clit while aroused but it just feels like nothing. I've tried running a shower/faucet over myself and it feels like nothing. I know a lot of women can't get off via penetration but I wish I could at least feel it.

So I got an IUD, Mirena, seven years ago when I had insurance. I live in burgerland and lost my insurance unexpectedly a few years after having it inserted. Basically it expired a couple years ago and it's still in me because I can't afford to see a doctor to get it taken out. How dangerous is this for my body? I plan to use my tax return this year to pay to get it out but I'm wondering if I've fucked my body permanently for leaving it in so long? I haven't really had any problems except my period started again once it expired and I got terrible pms symptoms which I've never had to deal with before.

IDK how to phrase this but my vagina muscles are tight all the time to the point of pain even when I'm not moving.
I'm a virgin and I don't masturbate, I don't think it's vaginismus as it has nothing to do with penetration, it's just all the time (especially in the actual vaginal opening area, it feels so tense and painful, especially when I have my legs together). It may be unrelated but I've been having pre-menstrual cramps for about 2 weeks with no signs of a period which is very unlike my body.

The five year limit they give is not scientifically supported, it is a very conservative limit based on: the financial incentive of replacement and women's age.

Internet search "Mirena iud seven years" to find more information yourself.
TL;dr most IUDs are effective anywhere from 2-5 years after their "expiry date", especially so for women over 30. Always do additional research before fully trusting what your medical care provider or the internet says, especially about women's health.

i had a really weird thing today where i was trying to insert a tampon and it felt like there was a literal stopper in the entrance of my vagina. i could get maybe the very very tip of the tampon in, but after that, it would hit something that literally felt like a blockage. it didn't necessarily hurt, it was just really uncomfortable (which was made worse by me panicking, ofc). after i forced myself to calm down and purposely relax, it went in as usual, but i have no idea what the fuck the whole issue was. it definitely wasn't anything like a tampon in there already that i forgot about, because i'm super OCD about when i put my tampon in/when i take it out, etc, and i've never left one in there before. i also explicitly remember taking my last one out.

i have always had issues with having a very tight vaginal cavity (i struggle with inserting anything bigger than a finger/tampon unless i'm super wet, and even then, i still really struggle). could that be the issue? i'm kind of freaked out i guess because not only has it never happened, but when i tried to google it, next to nothing came up. i would put a finger up there and root around to check if everything is okay, but i'm worried if there's a real problem i'll hurt myself. it's just so weird

I'm not able to masturbate without my panties on? Like, I can't rub my clit directly, skin to skin, i have to rub it with soft fabric in between. Like, my fingers have to be over my panties.

When I try to rub it without the panties in between/directly I stop after like a minute because i don't like how the skin there feels, I would keep going but it doesn't feel good, just meh, like if I were touching any other area of my body. Granted it also takes a while with panties on, so maybe I'm just not horny enough when I masturbate? Should I be moisturizing/wetting that area or something? like lubing, or oil? I don't really get too wet, only after I orgasm.

Also, is this a result of being too sensitive or not sensitive enough? I think I'm not sensitive enough, because it doesn't feel like anything for a while even with panties on, which should add friction right?

try using lubrication and buy some lube, i wouldn’t try with oil or anything. it seems a lot more to me like it’s a lack of sensitivity or a lack of lubrication. kind of related but focusing on rubbing the clitoral hood (like right above the clitoris) instead of going directly for the clit might help you. i find that helps warm me up and get me used to touching there, so maybe it’ll help you to get used to it a bit more. def use more lube though, it always helps!

I've been using pads for all my life without issues but in the last year and a half or so, each time I get my period and use pads I get extremely sore and itchy around my vaginal opening, sometimes when I have no restraint I'd itch myself till blood came out.
I change pads every couple of hours, always have clean hands, I wash myself every night, I tried different brands and nothing helps. I'm thinking of finally getting a period cup because I think the issue just might be moisture but I was wondering, did/does anyone else have this issue?

I used pads for all of my teens (my mom had weird views around tampons and virginity so wouldn't allow them in her house) It was ok for a few years but I reached a point where they irritated me too. I already stayed away from those fragranced ones so I assume it's just because the plastic backing on them makes them so non-breathable?

I switched to tampons as soon as I moved out and in a way I feel like I cramp more when I use them (even worse with a cup) but if I have to choose between a lil extra cramping or the wet and irritated feeling..tampons worked out better.

Some women report that extra cramping with a cup in and others don't so you might try it and find it's all positive. There's cloth pads too if you feel up to washing them every month.

I just want to thank my body for getting me off so easy. I have a clit that is very small and it is covered by the hood completely, even when I'm aroused, (it's kind of similar to a belle delphine in that it looks like the clit isn't exactly there at all) so all I have to do is make the minute-est of movements with my hips to make myself cum when I'm having sex. I also cum from penetration.

The only downsides is it can't handle any movement from the outside. Light flicks feel like a tongue punch, so does any manual stimulation with fingers. I just have to do my thing while the finger/tongue is resting on me.

The bromelain in pineapple breaks downs the proteins in semen, ostensibly improving taste. Outside of that, sugary tropical fruits might make you marginally sweeter.

PIV orgasms tends to feel like these fluttery, "deep" feeling orgasms that build up. They tend to overlap and aren't as taxing as a clitoral orgasm. Usually they build up to an amazing clitoral orgasm, but when you get a very succinct, non-fluttery piv orgasm, that in of itself is quite the experience. I'd say for me that clitoral orgasms are still stronger and more intense, though. The piv orgasms enhance it.

I did it when I had symptoms of a yeast infection after taking antibiotics, I took medicated pessaries at first and they didn't do a thing so losing my mind with the itch at like 1am I sent my partner to buy live bio natural yoghurt and I dipped a tampon in it. Did that a couple more times leaving it in for a while each time. I was okay after that but I know the effectiveness of that method is disputed.

Pretty sure I actually had a repeat of that a year or so later, again on antibiotics for dental stuff. I assumed that the yoghurt working the first time was just a fluke so I spent money on pessaries and my relief was short lived with symptoms coming back days later. Again live bio yogurt did the trick.

I don't know about other countries but Canesten brand pessaries are the go-to thing pharmacists give you here and I've never heard of any friends having success with that treatment. They usually waste money on that first and then either go to yogurt or pay for a doctor to prescribe even more expensive treatment. Between UTIs and thrush I wish OTC treatments were more effective.

A couple days before my period I tend to get this irritation around my vaginal opening.

Thismorning I woke up with it and also back pain and the need to go have my first 'period poop' of the month (I'm not on my period yet but due in a couple days) Seeing as prostaglandins are meant to be the cause of that change in your bowels.. I'm wondering do they change your ph balance?

I used it for that too, but use it sparingly. I'm not kidding when I say it bleaches everything. I ended up having the line lighter but so was the surrounding skin… it was like I had butt vitiligo lol, so in certain lighting it was completely obvious I was using a bleaching cream.

It's been a few years since I used it and my butt cleavage looks naturally lighter. I think the key is gentle exfoliation, not sitting too much, and butt exercises so the skin is pulled taut.

I have had 5 smear tests and each time it is horrible, not to put you off any further. But like you, I react with panic and nausea. I am assuming it is because it can trigger vasovagal syncope (nothing to do with the vag, but the vagus nerve which branches off all over the body), which is effectively fainting episodes. It can be triggered by lots of things, and for e.g. people have had it while trying to remove menstrual cups, getting injections, standing too long etc. It can make you feel very shaky and nauseous too, and especially with something as invasive as a smear test! Just make sure you let your doctor know, ask them to use a smaller, more gentle speculum and keep them aware of how you are feeling. I find it helps if I focus on wiggling my toes, and clench and unclench my hands and force blood around the body to help stop me passing out.

If you’re doing all those things with no results, maybe it’s not a UTI. I thought I had recurrent UTIs until I went to the doctor who referred me to the gynaecologist and then on to pelvic floor physiotherapy. Turns out I need to pee all the time because I struggle to relax my muscles so can never fully empty my bladder. One thing I’ve learned the hard way is do not pee as soon as you get the urge, as this will fuck you up long term as it reduces your bladder capacity as well as training your brain to “need” to pee as soon as there’s any there.

Obviously what’s wrong depends on your symptoms but just thought I’d point out that there’s more that can go on down there than UTIs. Ideally you need to go to a doctor, but if that’s not possible you could try kegels at home to see if that helps.

Anon above might be right. But I'll add my two cents, since I've also experienced this.
Main question, do you have a new partner or started having sex after a longer break? This is what usually happens. It's like, our bacterial flora has to get used to new person's bacterias all over the pussy, sorry for crude explanation. I'd get UTIs constantly with my bf, I figured it's getting a bit dangerous at this point (frequent UTIs fuck you up longterm so don't hesitate to medicate!), so I did full antibiotic therapy (before, I'd stop taking pills when symptoms stopped - don't do that! It's not cured yet) and now I'm free of it. So, what I want to say is, it may be one huge untreated UTI that keeps coming back when the bacterias from sex are "supplied". You need to treat it properly.

That mostly happens when giving birth while laying on your back, which is not at all the only way or even the best way. IIRC, women always used to squat or stand, sometimes in or over water to give birth, but some fuckboi English king decided he needed to see the gorey details at his leisure so he ordered them to lay down and spread eagle so he could have a front row seat.

It makes no sense that having a baby should rip you in half like that from an evolutionary standpoint, nor does it nake any sense to lay flat on your back and try to push 5-8 pounds against gravity horizontally when it makes a million times more sense to get veetical and let gravity do the work. That tearing happens in horizontal births because there's so much prolonged pushing and stretching going on that the skin just gives way, but it doesn't have to if you let gravity assist- the baby comes out smoothly and quickly (unless there are complications) with minimal damage. Horizontal births take way longer than they need to usually, which helps the doctor, but doesn't help mom or baby very much.

I had horrible chronic UTIs which turned into a pretty serious kidney infection at one point, even when I didn't have a sexual partner (though sex made it much more frequent). I went through tonnes of antibiotics but the thing that has consistently cured and kept UTIs away is taking d-mannose powder (not the tablets, they're full of filler and not potent enough). Try some from Amazon, three or four doses a day for a week and see if it helps. I just take it when I feel any kind of tingle (which is rare now!) and it works very quickly without wrecking my digestion or giving me thrush like antibiotics did. I don't suffer anymore. Way cheaper than the prescriptions I used to get too.
Literally changed my life anon, please try it if you haven't already. I know women who've been able to come off long term antibiotics because of it, and others who've treated antibiotic resistant UTIs too. If it doesn't work, try to get the specific type of bacteria causing the infection confirmed because it could be more serious or complicated than an e coli infection (the biggest cause of bacterial infection).
Also, consider using a bidet! I wash my parts every time I use the toilet and I think that helped reduce the incidence of tingles.

It's all about $$$$$. An episiotomy adds thousands to your hospital bill, and all the complications caused and resources used by srawn-out horizontal births cost a fuckload too. Literally the only point to it is to make giving birth slower, more paiful and more dangerous so the doctors can feel more involved in the process and profit from it. Women don't need much help giving birth without complications, these days we have good enough hygeine and living standards plus prenatal care and monitoring that it literally is retarded to continue forcing women to lay down to give birth just to makeit easier and more profitable for eveyone except her and her baby.

Adding to this because I forgot, but hospitals also now charge you for "skin to skin contact" which is literslly them letting you hold your baby after giving birth. When she had her son, my cousin requested skin to skin contact without gowns or blankets after he came out and they charged her $980 for it.

normal vaginal discharge, your vagina has to stay lubricated and self-cleaning means sometimes it'll be a bit wetter than other times.

You could try paying attention to where you are in your cycle when you notice it most, and wear undies those days and have the 'dryer' parts of your cycle be for commando days.

You may both be triggering a vasovagal (nothing to do with the vag but the vagus nerve) response, but can be a response to stress and some physical stimulation can set it off too. It can cause you to feel faint, shaky or nauseated and can cause blackouts. I get it if I put my finger inside of me and whenever I get a smear. I also had it when I tried a cup once. I passed out and spilled my cup everywhere so I totally believe what you guys are saying. Maybe look into that?

I go through periods of low sensitivity just naturally every month, like rn I feel basically nothing but last week I was super sensitive. I know some medications can contribute to low sensitivity, like SSRIs I think. Could that be it?

In any case it's not because you "masturbated wrong", I don't even think that's possible unless you're poking around down there with a meat tenderizer or something kek

So, couple questions…

My periods are always irregular, like I've gone a full year without discharge at all and then two or three days of spotting, then back to nothing for months. My mom is a nurse and she says I most likely have PCOS, but I'm waiting for an appointment with a doc to find out for sure. Most recently I started spotting but all my discharge was clumpy and brown with little specks of red, and then that continued to come out for a good month. I ruined some good panties because I thought it had stopped for a day or two and then had to make a rush to the bathroom only to find it flooding my panties. Does this sound relatively normal for PCOS? I'm not on any bc or anything and haven't had sex in almost four years. I also haven't had a "normal" period since middle school so I've had this issue for a while, it only recently got bad enough that I had discharge for that month.

I also have a patch on my labia majora that is just constantly itchy. Like to the point that I'll itch it raw and wet or bleeding and peeing makes it burn. It's just on the one side in one big spot and I've had it for about a year now. I use anti-itch cream and the sensitive lady vag soap and it gives it some relief for about a day before the itch comes back. Is this something I can bring up with a family doc or should I see a gyno or dermatologist? I have thick latina hair that's very persistent so I don't shave or anything, and I wash down there every time I shower so it's not like I'm dirty… I just want to stop itching!

For the itch, are you dry? Whenever my lips start feeling itchy despite normal hygiene and no other changes in discharge etc, I drink more water and use a lotion meant for vaginal dryness. It helps almost instantly.

No. 172291

>>172241
I don't necessarily feel dry, but I probably am because I'm itching so much. A never-ending cycle I guess. I drink water all the time but I suppose I can try a specified lotion on top of that. It's really just concentrated in that one spot which is what's odd to me and the itch is horrific. I also get dry patches along my bikini line that get kind of itchy but nowhere near as often or as bad so they don't concern me.

so i am a bit worried that my genitals are underdeveloped due to incomplete puberty. when i look at my vagina, it looks wrong. i cannot see a clit no matter what i do, i have almost no labia, and the hole (sorry) is very small to the point that my doctor commented on that during my physical exam. she also said my cervix position indicates that i may be infertile. i've always known that it looked very different from "normal" vaginas but i didn't think it was that bad until dating my current bf. he told me that he is always a bit confused while giving me head because he genuinely can't find my clit, and i can't either. it must be there but just very tiny? sex is painful, i can't wear tampons either. my period is only regular while on birth control and lasts 2-3 days of mostly dry blood. i was diagnosed with mild hypothyroidism in high school and i have a few other symptoms of my not going through proper puberty, including very short torso relative to leg length and short fingers. have any other anons experienced something similar? i want to ask a doctor but you can't go in for things that aren't pressing matters atm due to covid.

Could you try booking an appointment with a gynecologist? If you think your genitals look abnormal, I think you should get a proper diagnosis, there may be more issues that you haven't realized (like with the uterus), it could be a pressing matter since you have no idea what's going on.

Not sure if this is the right thread for this (is there a masturbation/sex toy thread?), but I just bought my first vibrator and don't really know how to use it. Mine looks like pic related, and I find it to be way too stimulating if I just put the suction thing directly on my clit. Is there a technique I'm missing??

No. 172604

>>172590
Maybe try putting it more on your clitoral hood rather than directly on the clit

No. 172623

>>172590
Experiment, put on the side of the clit etc. It extends under the skin, the tip can be too sensitive to touch for some.

No. 172665

>>172590
What I did with mine was dab lube on myself first and make sure my clitoral hood was also in the suction area. That seems to stop it from irritating the area or leaving me raw afterwards.

As amazing as suction toys can be, I'd probably recommend most beginners to try out a regular vibe first.

I’ve been walking around with BV and didn’t even realise it. It’s been months, if not over a year. I’m really scared I’ve developed pelvic inflammatory disease since my periods are more painful now. Is there anyone with PID here?

No. 172834

Anons, I'm going to the gyno for the first time tomorrow and I'm terrified. It doesn't help that it's the same one that my mother sees. I'm a perpetual virgin with normal periods and no need for birth control, so I really have no reason to be going. How do I get over this anxiety?

Your gyno has seen thousands upon thousands of vaginas, many busted from STDs and women shoving stuff they shouldn't up there. She knows what's she's doing, she's a professional.

I've been trying out the menstrual cup for the first time, I'm on the second day and it seems to be ok so far. However I can kinda feel the cup in some positions, such as sitting cross legged, no pain though. Is that normal? For reference I got a meluna classic size M, not sure if I should have gone with a S instead

No. 172931

Sounds pretty normal to me, maybe a bit more than average but nothing to worry about. I think it also depends on the size and shape of your labia how much gets caught in there vs in your underwear.

No. 172965

>>172925
Same here but i don't think it's anything serious as I run around gynos and they say my labia is a-okay. Some people just produce a lik extra, sometimes quality underwear can have something to do with it but mine is always like that, if you're otherwise okay, you'll be okay anon

Weird question but the past few days my vag has felt like it’s twitching every so often.

Does this happen to anyone else?

i have this annoying scratch which hurts whenever i pee. sometimes it goes away but every now and then when i'm wiping i feel it and i'm like oh son of a bitch.

sorry if this seems presumptuous but it could be irritation from that part of your labia/vaginal entrance being stretched during sex or masturbation with insufficient lubrication, sometimes it just happens, even with foreplay, arousal and sufficient fluids or lube.
if you've been itchy or wearing any scratchy fabrics or sitting on something unclean after showering (idk, the floor or something, maybe a bath with water that's gotten dirty from soaking or week old sheets, lol. not saying you're dirty but pandemic has got some people kind of slob mode sometimes, i'm just rattling through potential causes you might remember thinking back) it could also be nonsexual irritation or a reaction to bacteria. i used to get that once in a while (sensitive vagina i think, i have very sensitive skin too) and it generally clears up on its own. sometimes a doc can prescribe an ointment if it burns/is sore but isn't infected and doesn't require treatment
you can also get something similar from wiping very hard with toilet paper or if you sleep with a (clean!) pad on and have very heavy flow but it feels different, more of a dry painful burning sensation when you pee or when discharge comes into contact with the irritation
if you don't have symptoms of a yeast infection, no need for STI panel and it's not in actual pain i'd just give it a few days and see how you feel. you can also soak a clean cloth in warm water and press it to the area whenever you're in bed or chillin at home for some relief
not sure if you take baths but it's good to avoid bubble bath or epsom salts or any scented products if so. maybe switch to showers so you don't get soap residue on the site of the irritation
if it's still sore or scratchy or burns when you pee after that period you can call your gyno or GP and make sure everything is alright

thank you anon! my boyfriend and i have been having a lot more sex due to the pandemic and always being at home so many we just haven't been using enough lube.

I always had a regular period, but two weeks after the last one, I first got spotting with brown blood. Now it's mixed with red blood and it's the same amount as if I had my normal period. What the fuck? I'll see my gyno tomorrow, hope it's nothing bad. Also had headaches and I feel bloated. Has anybody experienced something like that? Please calm my nerves lol

Whenever I orgasm I get horrible sharp abdominal pain around where I assume my uterus is, but everything I can find online about this problem assumes that I’m having penetrative sex… and I’m not. I graduated college last year so I have yet to find a gynecologist outside of my student health network and I’m really dreading having a conversation about this. I know it’s irrational because it’s their job and I’m sure they’ve seen and heard worse, but I’ve spent my whole life having my reproductive health problems be dismissed by so-called medical professionals.

My outer labia itches really bad 10-14 days into my cycle for a few days. It doesn't happen every month, but has been going on for like 2 years. I assume it has something to do with my hormones since it only happens around this time and there's no weird smell or discharge. I've used an anti-itch cream but it doesn't always work. Does anyone else deal with this?

No. 173703

Sorry this might turn into a mini-vent, but does anyone use a non-hormonal birth control that isn't the IUD? How does it work for you?

I'm sick to death of my bc pill. I can only use a low estrogen one, otherwise I'm off the rails with my emotions. I've been on birth control for a little over 10 years, never any breaks. I noticed when I was around 22 I suddenly was getting no period at all, despite the fact I've been taking the same exact pill brand for years. Around that time I also noticed I was getting less and less wet. Now I can't even produce ANY lubrication anymore years later, even though when I was younger I was constantly fucking wet and always had a lot of discharge. I have no discharge whatsoever anymore. All these things bother me and make me wonder what's up with my hormones but I've seen 3-4 gynos and none of them seem to think it's an issue. I'm sick of never being wet, I'm sick of constantly wondering if my birth control failed. I'm a little skeptical of not letting my body do its thing naturally, like I wasn't even old enough to have a consistent period when I got on bc but I was put on it anyways so I have no clue what my period is even like without it. But I'm also absolutely terrified of being pregnant and the more and more I research alternatives I'm worried I'll just go off of my birth control and wind up pregnant and feel like an idiot for thinking I could not get pregnant without the pill.

No. 173704

Wtf anon, your gynos don’t think it’s an issue that you can’t get wet at all anymore? I don’t have a PhD in vagina but that sounds very concerning. I think you should go off your bc for a few months and see if anything changes.

No. 173711

i think i've been misestimating my vagina size. i've always thought i was "loose" and was ashamed of it because i can fit two fingers inside easily even when i'm not that aroused. however, even at my most aroused three fingers feel a little uncomfortable and four must must be agony (too scared to try). i recently bought a menstrual cup and realized it's actually too big for me

already replied to an anon here recently and i don't want to play internet gyno because it's obviously no substitute for actual medical advice but you might want to look into dysorgasmia, it's a type of pain that can occur during or just after orgasm (can last for anywhere between a few moments to hours). it's not… common per se, but it falls within the realm of a healthy female body that might not have some medical/reproductive health issue causing it
i get it a lot and i don't have penetrative (or any) sex, either. don't penetrate myself when masturbating either. sorry if TMI but relevant, i feel?
pap smears and testing have all been normal, as well. there could be another cause but maybe it's the same for you. hope you can find a gyno you feel comfortable with who listens to you and gives the care you need. i like to research any doctor i see or seek a referral to on those "rate my doctor" websites or relevant communities if it's a specialist of any kind, maybe that could set you at ease and help you feel confident shopping around for someone helpful and compatible

I recently found out about pmdd and I’m wondering if this is what I have. I’m really fed up with my pms symptoms because 2 weeks before my period starts, I get terrible mood swings that have me feeling extremely suicidal. The remaining time my boobs hurt so bad, I can’t even walk without pain, have headaches and want to binge on everything. No one around me takes it seriously, saying it can’t be that bad. Except I feel like pure shit for 2-3 weeks a month.
Does anyone else have experience with severe pms symptoms/pmdd? And if so, what has helped you? I’ve read about chemical menopause, so I’m interested in whether someone has tried this method.

I had some small wax strips that I tried using on my pubes today and I was surprised how quickly the pain went away, so I think I want to start waxing my vag area instead of trimming/shaving. Is it better to remove a little at a time to avoid irritation or try to get it all off at once?

Okay embarrassing but I’ve always struggled with masturbating. Penetration doesn’t do much like it doesn’t feel like much and I definitely couldn’t orgasm from it. My clit is the only way I can orgasm but it is often painful to touch. I’ve read that it could be over-sensitive, but even touching around it can be painful too. As far as I know I don’t think I have any medical problems down there but yeah I’ve never talked about this with anyone because it’s too awkward. I’ve tried a vibrator before and could never orgasm from it, it felt overwhelming. -sigh-

Have you tried touching your over panties or clothes? Sometimes I find this helps me. Also when you get really aroused, does your clit poke out? This is when it really hurts for me, I have to "readjust" so my lips are fully covering it. Sorry if that's tmi.

No. 173892

No no don’t worry not tmi, yes i have found touching it over something or putting the lips over it does help reduce the sensitivity but I guess I’m just wondering if I’m always going to have to do this or if I can somehow fix this and be ‘normal’ I’ve always felt broken in a way like I can’t orgasm normally

What they're describing as "loose" is just how normal vaginas are when the woman is relaxed, comfortable, and wet. Men break their dicks through deathgripping and porn, so it's no surprise it's not enough for them. If a woman is tightening up enough for a man to feel it that means she's anxious and not fully aroused (unless she's orgasming ofc, then there will be spasms)
