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.
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.

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.
So no cream for my specific needs exist, uh?
Fucking useless scientists put a dumbass driving a car in space but cannot get me a quick and safe vulva shaving cream? smh
oh shit good luck to you and your ovary anon>>145528>>145534
This has warmed me up to and IUD even more. I’ve been considering, but honestly the pain of the procedure scares me quite a bit. I’m kind of a baby.
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
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.
That's good to hear.
But then why do the instructions say it can't be used outside of bikini line?
Did it work for you? How much did the growth of hair reduce?
I am at second application but everything looks the same tbh.
thanks for this info anon, considering this in the future
>Hormonally i've not noticed huge changes
I thought the copper IUD didn't have any hormonal side effects anyway? isn't that one of the benefits of the copper IUD?>>145556>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
wait why would it hurt for a day or so? I've waxed other areas of my body and its hurt just for a few seconds. is it a stinging sensation you get that lasts for a day?

I’m kinda wondering if I don’t have vaginismus at all, and if my vagina is just… physically closed off? I feel like if he was breaking my hymen, it wouldn’t feel like he was hitting a wall. Is this normal?
File: 1596443286975.jpeg (18.45 KB, 526x278, ENtPUKlWkAgYmE5.jpeg)
You should definitely see a gyno. Either your hymen is unusually thick or you have vaginismus, or both. I've attached a picture of what hymens can look like, but I got the hunch this is vaginismus
The doc already checked by himself that you are a virgin by inspecting your vagina.
I know it's not easy to stop feeling uncomfortable, but his/her job is to look at your medical issues, not to judge you.
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.
I have it to an extent where tampons are ok but it interferes with sex
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".
Seconding this. I showered with my mom until I was about seven or eight, and people told me that
was weird. Showering with her when you're an adult and her touching your labia is… unnerving. I would ask a therapist what they think.
Are you getting enough foreplay and using lube?
It used to happen to me all the time when I fucked guys that I wasn't really into because I was young dumb and didn't know that things could be better.
I was fairly wet, we teased around a lot before getting to it but I think I tend to run dry after awhile due to nexplanon and the friction alone.
I'll just have to go buy my favorite lube again, I have some silicone shit but I fucking hate it. Anyways, thanks for the input anon. I just wanted to be sure.
Men will shit on your pussy even if it is the ””perfect pink innie type”” that is promoted as the ideal.
Inner labia too big = ew roast beef, you have had sex with 1000s of people
Too small inner labia = you look like a child, I want a real woman
Literally cannot win
As long as you don't fuck absolute degenerate coomers no man is going to care what colour your pussy is or how long your labia are, they're over the moon to be near one at all
However if you're going to insist on shaving and keeping everything fresh for them then make sure to tell them if their dick smells or their balls need shaved, equality is important
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.
Guess I'll stop fully shaving my vag and just trim, and be more careful with 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 got so so sick from my hormonal implant and basically any birth control pill I tried I’d just get the worst symptoms on the box for each one. The copper IUD isn’t perfect but I haven’t had any problems yet which is rare for me with birth control.
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!!! (be safe tho!!)
i recommend it to everyone and just advise to pay attention to your body of course.
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
Thank you for your replies!
I‘m gonna give the copper IUD another thought.
Anyone else who‘s had any experience with it?
I‘m kinda worried about the toxicity of copper and having it in your body for a prolonged time. Also, how exactly do they fixate it in your uterus?
is it actually LONG or does it just have more follicles that extend further than most people? i have pube follicles that kinda go down my thigh
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.
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.
Fun fact: even if you start fucking and/or masturbating with an empty bladder, it can easily get filled during action anyway. This happened to me as well.
Diff anon. I had an ex who was obsessed with making women squirt using his fingers, there was definitely an orgasm involved but yeah as someone who drinks too much coffee and not enough water.. I could tell the liquid was at least partly urine
I'm pretty grossed out by semen though so tbh both sexes have gross shit come out of them mid orgasm lol
>>147534>No such thing as "squirting glans"
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?>>147567>Do you think your body keeps a little pouch of water as reserve, just in case you feel like squirting today?>a little pouch of water as reserve>anybody with half a brain equating squirting to water
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.
Stimulating the clit still involves an orgasm that effects the muscle to the ovaries lol. >>147659
I do kegels lady it doesn't bother me if other girls enjoy pissing while having sex, just don't fool yourself into thinking it's a special form of ejaculation.
>>147687>it doesn't bother me if other girls enjoy pissing while having sex, just don't fool yourself into thinking it's a special form of ejaculation.
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.
also nta but considering that it, uh, travels through part of the urinary tract or the general areas, I would assume the liquid to include trace amounts of urine related molecules even if it isn't actually urine
in any case it's an oversimplification to say it equals urine if it's a massively diluted version. This bothers me because moids already have so many complexes about normal female bodily functions being gross or shameful or whatever, I don't want them to start insisting it's actually pee omg haha ewww when it doesn't smell like it or really leave any other traces
>>147631>I can't find anything corroborating the claim that even just the term "squirt" was invented by the porn industry.

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.
>This seems to presume that the bladder wasn't fully empty to begin with.

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.
I don't have a lot of experience, but I also don't enjoy penetration. I keep thinking that maybe I don't do something right, maybe I'm too anxious, maybe I'm not good at taking things up there, but no matter how I try it just feels painful at worst and slightly annoying at best. 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.
The thing is, what man will not want to have penetrative sex? I guess I'm bound to be alone or feel unsatisfied for life.
I don't like it very much either. I think I'm not very penetration-compatible with my bf either, it's probably something about dick size, the angle and tighness of my vagina, and other factors but I enjoyed it a bit more with my ex.
On the other hand he's great at making me cum orally or with his hands and he's into some other stuff to make him cum so it hasn't been an issue. I want kids later in life tho so it's with him we'll have to figure something out.
Samefagging but > This seems to presume that the bladder wasn't fully empty to begin with.
I read in a medical book that a bladder produces urine constantly and pretty rapidly
This discussion has happened a million times on here, the advice not to use soap is meant to be 'don't put soap inside your vagina' people usually aren't advising against soap on the outside of your body.
>unless you want a smelly pimply vagina that’s always infected
Was that you until recently??
Putting soap in a vagina sounds like a fetish. I’m sure they sperg about putting soap on the vulva too. And yes. I quit using soap down there because that’s what my doctor recommended when I used regular ol’ soap and still had a strong scent.>>147947
Chilly delicate wash emulsion works for me but when I run out of it i’ll experiment with more brands before i go back to it.>>147952

Uh you shouldn't wash your vag with soap unless its like those special soaps made for it that doesn't mess with your ph level. Soap can seriously fuck up your vag, did you never learn this at biology?
Your vag shouldn't smell that bad either way, if you think it does smell you should probaly go see a gyo to ask for advice
Did I say wash it with soap? I assumed (although I see it was wrong) that it was implied I was talking about special soap for the hoohah, the outside. I cant remember the names but theres plenty.
Are you asian? A lot of asians dont have those…hormones or whatever they are called under the arms that produce the BO.
you're thinking of apocrine glands! asians have fewer apocrine glands and around 2% of the global population has a gene which means you produce sweat which doesn't contain proteins that bacteria can latch onto and eat, which means they don't excrete and produce B.O.
so if you're an anon who can get away with not wearing deodorant for days you're probably quite lucky! but in the minority. the rest of us get stinky pretty quickly.
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?
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.
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.
Wow, thank you so much for your feedback! While I would prefer to stop using a product that requires insertion (I usually use tampons), if cups are this successful after so many years I would be willing to give it a try.
Can I ask what brands specifically you both like? Also at what point do you have to throw them away, from your personal experience?
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.
Here's a diagram in that helps. The vaginal opening is colored blue and the urethra is green.

samefag, this is what a normal vulva is supposed to look like. Your urethra should be barely visible and a lot higher. I wonder if you have a birth defect or some kind of healed trauma? It's not going to kill you but you should definitely seek out answers.

I've been to a gynecologist multiple times. I haven't had any medical issues with my vagina aside from BV a few years ago, which I took antibiotics for. None of them ever told me anything was wrong. It's been a few years since I've seen a gynecologist, though.
Idk anons, I'm kind of scared now. Maybe I should make an appointment.

Here's a diagram from one a medical textbook which might be useful

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.
Pic related, it feels like that but more protruded. Has anyone ever had weird experiences with their cervix?

I'm 80% sure I have a yeast infection, will the gynecologist have to look up my vagina to tell? I'm really self conscious so I want to avoid that as much as possible.
Haven't had a uti in a hot minute but that sounds familiar. There's no shame in a uti, seriously its completely normal for women. You're just going to tell the doctor your symptoms and if it is a uti they'll give you antibiotics.
Maybe it's my country or something but most women I know talk about it like a fact of life because it pretty much is!
There's nothing embarrassing about an UTI anon. Woman's bodies are basically built in such a way that we get them terribly easy and any doctor knows that. But if you really don't wanna go, I have succesfully gotten rid of a UTI with a treatment course from the drugstore before though.>>149540
I'm in my mid-twenties and have never seen a gyno either but like, girls and woman in my country don't go to a gyno unless they're 50+ or have an actual concern/reason to go. We don't go for random check-ups when you're completely healthy and have no reason to go, so I'm not concerned. 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. And I'm from a rich western country with a decent health care system, so it's not like the average person can't afford it or whatever.
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.
lol i'm 28 and i've never been either
my friends keep trying to scare me into going and say i might have cervical cancer
there was a lot of pressure on social media a while back with everyone talking about their smear tests and talking down to women who didn't go
i'm sure they think it's very noble and i know that my way of thinking is flawed but it really sticks in my craw
i don't think anybody should feel bullied or pressured to have an intrusive test like that if they feel unsafe, i don't think trying to scare somebody with the threat of cancer is very understanding
also like, bold of you to assume i don't want to die
I don't know what age group first started getting the HPV vaccine but I never got it. Seeing as I had one of the two 'bad strains' of it that's what made my cervical changes more worrying. It was a stressful couple of years monitoring it for further changes.
Did most here get the vaccine?
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.>>149592
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. Otherwise it's really uncommon in my country for women to even know it's an option, and additionaly, it's really expensive to have these, unfortunately.
I didn't get it. My mother was convinced I'd be a virgin til marriage so "I didn't need it" and I think she said two girls died from it. I'm not angry though. I am terrified of shots and overall I'm pretty wary of new medicine. >>149540
If you're sexually active, please at least get tested for STD's. I never got tested because I didn't have symptoms, until a new partner insisted I get tested before we had sex. Thankfully I did, because I had chlamydia. Literally 0 symptoms of anything wrong, and I have no idea how long I had it for.
go to the doctor you fucking child
>uwu i want to die
then neck yourself
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.
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.
Thank you all for your nice replies, anons.
I don't think that it is something serious - it might just be leftovers and general just feels like a little bit of weird skin hanging around.
I will ask my doctor about it regardless - just to make sure, like you suggested.
As for the shaving part - I equipped myself with shaving gel, a large mirror, the razor and will try getting rid of the hairs now.
Wish me luck lol
they take their time but yeah they eventually deflate on their own, i read hot water helps unclogs them too. hope yours goes down soon anon>>149935
mine have been around the size of a grape, they dont hurt or anything so am kinda lucky
Nta but >still have problems with is sticking my fingers up there for too long, for some reason the feeling makes me woozy, idk why
Me too! I used to be able to insert and remove my nuvaring and that's the extent of how long I can stand the sensation. Like you said I feel woozy, squeamish almost. I'm not even young or inexperienced but I can't do it.
You will be fine anon. Its easier the second time around because you are used to having something inside you and you don't cramp like mad.
The removal does not hurt at all but is a bit uncomfortable - kinda like pulling a hair? Idk how to describe it.
File: 1599399713894.jpeg (11.52 KB, 485x506, godwhy.jpeg)
Anyone else feels extremely uncomfortable and fearful with anything having to do with vags or even breasts?
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.
Idk, it feels like one but can someone have a phobia torwards genitals?
>Girl, that's bad enough
Thank you, but it feels like i'm overreacting though. If girls who were raped can still live normally i shouldn't be like this.
Thank you for the worry but i can't, i even have some yeast or bacterial vaginosis going on but i can't go. Maybe if it was just the doc looking but a smear is impossible. I would rather get sick even knowing the consequences (family member had cancer).
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
sorry samefag as >>150354
but also have you noticed how society treats women like a "secondary" sex? Like men = neutral, baseline then women = that plus boobs uterus women parts. Or I guess you could say a similar thing about being a kid, then growing up to notice secondary sex characteristics which feel out of place. Could this approach have something to do with your feelings? Apologies for all this theorizing but its important to see that breasts vagina uterus etc are not disgusting, it's part of being an adult woman.
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.

Idk if this is the right thread, but do you guys know how to deal with this? It's so ugly but I'm also too brainwashed to let my hair grow.
The only way is laser hair removal. You can use chemical exfoliants but it’s up to you whether you want them that close to your vaginal opening. >>150640
Some womens pubes are just too coarse, doesn’t make much of a difference with epilating and waxing.
i wanna pull those out with a tweezer, so satisfying
but yeah exfoliating before and after shaving (with a more gentle exfoliator since you're using it twice) might work
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.
was totally right. The measuring hurt more than the insertion itself. I barely even felt the insertion. The cramps aren’t as bad as last time either. Really happy about how it went down.
I used to really want it. When I planned tattoos that went down that low I had to choose whether to get laser done first or go ahead with the tattoos which would make laser impossible. I decided to just go ahead and get the tattoos, mainly because saving up for laser was alot.
I'm glad I didn't rush to do it. My feelings about body hair have changed alot since then.

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.
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>>151564
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 don't think so? Have you looked at yourself in the mirror and tried to find it?
It could be that you are just not sensitive in the tip, i'm the same way. And this method of masturbation can make you kind of numb because you will need a lot of pressure to get off.
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?
It's not your fault, he's just trying to blame you because he's bad at what he's doing without trying to learn how to do it right. You deserve kindness sensitivity and respect in intimate situations, not someone who makes you dread it.
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
Isn't that just too convenient.
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
So once you break your hymen yourself it might not be that big of a deal after all.
Ok, clarify this for me.. you're ripping in your vaginal opening after having a poop? Or your anal opening is ripping a little?
I used to have problems with the bottom of my vaginal opening getting wrecked constantly during sex.
I don't have days where my panties are clean at the end of the day. They're not totally coated but there's always always a smear in the middle, more or less depending on my cycle. As I understood it, most women are like this.
Are you using panty liners to protect your underwear from discharge? (Isn't that what underwear is for? I don't understand panty liners tbh)
I'm willing to bet you're totally normal. If it's not stinking or itchy you're good.
Go to a gyn for sure but in the meantime drink a lot more water and take a fiber supplement. Find out what triggers
your IBS and avoid it. It will probably help support healing if you're not constipated. You can get a footstool to use while on the toilet as well, it will help to relieve pressure on your sphincter.
Yep, that's the hymen, it's supposed to be there occluding the entrance (it's purpose is hygiene) and look like that.
It's different among diff people, some have less of it some more. Mine completely covers the entrance. One less sexually experienced guy I dated was as baffled as you when he saw my hymen for the first time, he started going down on me then went "um, what is that" all confused, kek.
Samefag, but that guy thought hymens just sort of disintegrate after having sex for the first time, had to educate a grown man that they don't. It doesn't even make sense.
Definitely would help in the fight against ignorance to start including the hymen in diagrams, you're right, it's never shown.
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.
I feel like it's definitely not as common in women but there's 'straight' men out there obsessed with ingesting their own semen…
Have you been single or celebate for a while? Just wondering if it's that's a possible cause, having no sexual partner for a while you could start to look inwards for that attraction?
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
yes anon, you're more knowledgable than doctors studying it and fuck years of research, because you said so. Just open a book. It has the components that are found in pee and it has many more, than are not pee. I'm not even gonna engage more because we've been through this so many times lol>>153412
I recommend you read about it yourself, there's plenty credible sources on the internet, before the squrting shitstorm begins. Like it always does

Anons who cured themselves from vaginismus, how did you do it?? Is there like a trick for relaxing yourself?
the therapy for it is just using small dildo kinda things daily and working your way up. lots of lube, lots of relaxation, practise makes perfect type of thing. if its trauma based see a therapist first>>154284
herpes anon come back its ok
just tell people beforehand i guess. it fucking sucks but in reality herpes isn't the end all be all, people with aids are still having regular sex and getting married and shit
anon, sorry to disappoint you but most people have non genital
herpes. the one that you get on your mouth.
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.
i was on the pill from age 15 to 27. while i was on it i didnt experience anything bad, but when i got off it, i realized that it had fucked up my mood and my libido a lot. i guess i didnt realize it before cause i was used to feel that way. i'll never take it again. either the guy wears a condom or i'm not fucking him, as simple as that. but i didnt take them for medical reasons so maybe talk to your doctor about your concerns.>>154340
i prefer male gynecologists. in my experience they have a gentler touch and are more sensitive.
Do you wear panties that aren't completely cotton and tight pants from bad materials?
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 just wrote down all the things I've learned/experienced after dealing with abundant discharge during my teen years so hopefully something helps. Anyway gyno is the best option and I definitely recommend yearly checkups..
how do i unread that?
You're technically not supposed to douche or use those insertable scented cooch films because it fucks up vaginal flora. Cleaning the outside is just normal hygiene.>>155201
Most people are paranoid and feel shitty enough to talk about this kind of thing as it is. Fuck off with that.
I've asked about very similar thing just recently, seems like it's far more common than we think and completely normal. If I was to sleep with someone for the first time I would not wear a panty liner and just suffer through moisture if so happened because its preferable to explaining that no, i'm not on my period but with my long time partner now I don't care. And I try to not wear them daily as >>155252
suggested, since I've stopped I've realized most of the days are not as intense as I thought and daily use is not justified anyway.
Stop wearing panty liners and don't wear underwear at home/at night. Don't wear tight pants or underwear for a while.
Used to have hevy discharge and panty liners just made it worse. Airing my pussy out made it go back to normal

Did I experience an orgasm or was it some other bad experience? If it was, why do they suck? it was like a year ago so I don't remember it exactly but, normally when I masturbate, it feels good until a certain point where it peaks and then stops, but this was slightly different, I remember that after I 'peaked', I ending up feeling like I was having my period in slow motion and my pussy felt extremely warm but not in a good way at all (I was also experiencing things that I usually experienced after I masturbate, like fatigue, warmer body temperature, high heart rate) and I just wanted it to end, I felt genuinely uncomfortable
Probably a cyst anon. Those are extremely common and sometimes go away on their own. Most of the time, they are absolutely harmless. Just annoying.
I have had one for about 4 years hoping it would go away…I think you can also drain them somehow, but it seems painful.
Is it where you'd have follicles? Could be an infected ingrown, the hardness/swelling/reducing was how it felt when with MRSA. Needed antibiotic ointment. (and gross, but if it is that, put some of the ointment in your nose. that's where most ppl carry the bacteria)
If you're having multiple issues, might be best to see a doc. Navigating this kinda stuff alone sucks
having an orgasm can cause your period to start but only maybe a day before (it happened to me several times) like >>156092
anon said, it stimulates your muscles and that can make the period start
You could just be extra sensitive to ph balance and semen will throw it off.
Is his personal hygiene sufficient?
Do you use lube during sex? Many contain ingredients that put you at risk of yeast infections.
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
t. tired me
No condoms, but I know he takes care of his personal hygiene.and it can’t be the semen because he’s never finished inside me. And we’ve used lube sometimes, but even than I’ve been getting them way before we started bringing it in.>>156531
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
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?
I had a series of them and couldn't always afford treatment right away so I was in a pretty bad way. I stopped having sex a couple years ago because I'm so insanely prone to them that it's not worth it.
Yeah I think it just varies a lot between people, I know some women for whom it was also basically on par with a bad headache but for others it's straight up kms territory.
Cracks me up and rustles my jimmies
that men can just go about their lives never thinking about this. Like it doesn't even cross their minds that all of this is going on, they're free. I unironically believe that if sex had to men even half of the downsides it has to us, most of them wouldn't even bother. Straight men are actually the least sexual beings kek, sex is just easy for them so they might as well.
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.

wat do if my discharge tastes uhh really sour? is this yeast infection or what the devil?
I think I constantly have mild yeast infections despite sometimes treating them, they don't really itch so it's not life-destroying but now I'm in a relationship and I noticed the taste ughhh so embarrassing
You're talking about your first time, I wouldn't worry unless it's an ongoing experience. This sounds perfectly normal
Don't be afraid to tell him to ease up if it hurts, one of the things that will lead to vaginismus is just ignoring pain and enduring it. Have him slow down, add lube or switch to a different form of stimulation if it's too painful to carry on
It happened to me just once in my life (recently) and i've been wearing tampons for 10+ years. i kinda freaked out but eventually
got it out. it's not a common occurence and if you are careful (i wasn't) it shouldn't happen
I don't know but they always say you shouldn't pop them cuz the bacteria can cause another one to pop up so maybe that's why it keeps happening
Fucking weird tho I hope for you it really is just a zit
It's made from body safe silicone, and I like the squishiness of it. I'll keep that in mind though as an alternative if this keeps happening.>>157809
Most likely it's this, lockdown is really not helping at all.
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.
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 not nosepicker anon but when you think about it our noses and throats are connected and we swallow snot all day long. It's in our mouths and in saliva already. Scooping the discharge out of yourself to eat is worse imo
I love this place, what did I just type lol
pretty much same. i dont taste sour or sweet. i taste like nothing and thanfully smell like nothing as well (maybe the faintest sweet smell) i thought that was the standard? im a straightfag (kek) so i dont have anything to compare first hand, ya know>>159479
hormonal birth control killed the little libido i naturally have, as other anons said. worst part is that i didnt even notice until i got off the pill and my libido slowly started to come back, it was a weird feeling after 10 years on that shit. i didnt gain any weight from it but i had more water retention around my period (basically cankles and "bloated" arms and legs)
To me it tastes like natural yogurt. I've been with other women and it's always a lil sour, some more sour than others.
I had one ex who tasted a bit like creamy mashed potatoes which I thought was cool, but I should've kept my mouth shut because she felt weirdly self conscious when I told her that lol
When I was on it I remember setting an alarm for when I needed to put the new one in. I had it set for sunday evenings so I'd always be at home. My guess is that putting the new ring in a little late is the typical screw up. That or not keeping it refrigerated. Those are some scary failure rates within a year though.
Where I live we didn't have abortion at the time so given I had a partner bitching about not wanting to double up and wear condoms.. I didn't take it for long. Happy ending was when he stepped up and got a vasectomy
If you collect a few months worth of it all at once you should keep them in the fridge, if you only collect it by the month you should be ok.
The pharmacy I worked at explained it that way. They used fridges because if a ring sits out for months it definitely does affect effectiveness. It's a matter of how long it's sitting out.

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?
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.
File: 1605862724600.jpg (Spoiler Image, 34.78 KB, 500x464, cup.jpg)
You need to make sure that you are inserting it deep enough. It needs to be directly underneath the cervix.
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.

What other knowledge is the world keeping from me that might kill me
I knew a guy years ago with a fetish for pussy farts. He told me he would do exactly this to his exes all the time, force as much air into them as possible using his mouth…
Told him this and his first reaction was not believing me. His second reaction (after Google backed me up) was him declaring he was still going to do it. That he wasn't scared..blah blah his pleasure was important too.
Tampons. I used pads for my first few years because my catholic mom thought tampons were for slutty women?…. moved out and switched to tampons. Sometimes find them a bit uncomfy when I'm already cramping but I'll take that over the wet/clammy feeling of a pad, personally.
I tried two menstrual cups (one firm/one softer) and my pelvic muscles just won't chill with one in. I had issues where I couldn't empty my bladder with the cup in and given I have an overactive bladder that meant taking the cup out loads of times in a day.. wanted it to work but back to tampons for now.
I don't understand how the vagina being full of air could cause an embolism. how does that work?
on a sidenoet, my pussy filled with air the other day just from my position, I put a finger inside and I was seriously surprised how much potential space is up in there, crazy amount of room. never experienced that before>>160758
I use a cup and a washable cloth liner. if I'm at home I'll just use a thicker cloth pad. I switched for eco friendly reasons but tampons suck, they're bleached and have all sorts of nasty shit in them that are unfriendly to the vagina, very drying also. disposable pads are awful too, like a big sweaty plastic nappy. I could never go back.
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.>>160759>pads make me feel I'm wearing diapers
exactly, I wore these as a teenager and looking back I wish I'd had/known about cloth pads back then

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.
I know I should just accept myself but I’m really curious to know what’s standard.
>>160933>How big is the vaginal opening supposed to be?
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>>160939>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?
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.
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.
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!
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.
Tldr; go, virgin or no, previous issues or no.
>>161093 >I really loved my cup at first (convenient, less waste) but it made my cramps 10x worse
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.
I don't think I'm the anon that posted about it but >about-to-have-thrush irritation all the time
I used to have this back when I shaved, took me a long time to actually connect the dots there but I stopped shaving and it all went away. That and I've been UTI free for a record amount of time! I also just love my hair now that I'm used to it. Win win
i do that too and one time i found my own hair inside my vagina (like a couple long hairs from my head, tangled up into a small ball) so i now do it sometimes to make sure that nothing accidentally ended up in there
i also do eat my own snot though and dont mind my poop smell and such so i think i am kinda weird.

no problem! glad i could help! >>161023
no i don't, i've used coconut oil on my face before and got clogged pores as the oil is high on the comedogenic scale but never from using it on my pubic area. so even if you tend to break out from oils on your face you should be okay. if you're worried about it I'd sa go for an oil low on the comedogenic scale>>161195

Anons, could I get some help identifying the name of the birth control tablets I took a few years back? All I remember is that it probably had a row of peach-colored placebos for the last week… Sorry for the dumb question, it's just I'm having trouble getting the records from my pharmacy.
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.

I remember nearly nothing, but I think I managed to narrow it down to Sronyx based on my memory of the packaging alone! I wanted to shop around for birth control that had pleasant side effects, but the actual side effects I read about were horrifying. Now I don't dare to try anything other than the pills I took before. Farewell, dreams of bigger boobs and softer skin…>>161560
I promise you no one cares or even notices. Nobody's genital area is ever completely evenly toned.
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.
Hmm. I say leave it be. No gyn surgeons would want to cut anything unless they really want your money for a non-existing problem.
It’s a different story if the area is severely itchy, skin thinning, or recent onset of change in color. They may want to get a sample of that.

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.
What the fuck? Me too. I wonder if you were one of the anons I had shark week with a week and a half ago. I wish I could offer advice, but I can commiserate and that's something at least.
I was so mad when it got slightly heavier today. I was helping my grandfather with a project and just felt that disgusting sensation of a gush, and awkwardly waddled away as soon as I could to clean.
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.
So I never have had penetration in other forms than with toys and even then only the skinniest dildos went in without it being absolutely awful, no matter what I did, it just wasn't doable for me. Fast fucking forward to me being subjected to gazillion different ultrasounds, biopsies, pap smears all on a monthly to every 3 months basis, first it was always 100% awful, bleeding, post cramps that lasted for days, sometimes even week. 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. Things have sucked and will suck for a while but at least I don't think I have some extra grip pinhole pussy anymore, even all of my examinations are going so much more smoother these days!
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.
(Note: individual reaction to the hormones can differ, I have also experienced the 1 in 10 bleeding reaction to the implant) soo maybe im a horror story.
Well, sounds like STD. Ever got tested for herpes.>>162725
Sounds like overstimulated clit after too much masturbation. Keep the area clean and dry. Don’t wear tight underwater. Lastly, avoid too much sexual stimulations (e.g. watching porn).
First, you should stop trying to force it
Second, you need to get the hell out of the site and imageboards in general, it will completely ruin your perception of sexuality, and if you follow bad advice, your entire life.
I experience the same thing, I just assume my clit skin gets sensitive during my period and leave it at that.>>162746
Have you never had sex, anon? It's not really a sensation that you know until you stick something in there, preferably dick.>>162763
Stay hydrated. Stop watching so much porn. Don't be afraid to use lube.
Uhh I used to get properly wet only during ovulation and right before my period, but have now been having sex every day after starting a really nice
relationship and I have gotten noticeably wetter. I mean of course this would be the case, in a new relationship you'll be more likely to be a bit wet if you're kinda constantly in a state of arousal throughout the day, but it feels more like my bodily responses changed due to frequent sex. 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
Vitamins alone? No.>vitamin B complex
Depends, what else is on the pill? What else have you been tracking? e.g. is the smell constant? Does it happen always? Day or night? etc.
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…
I know emojis are against board culture but vagina BDD gotta warrant a free frown face goddamn
I think that as long as it doesn't smell funky or taste weird basically no guy is going to care.>this kind of problem
Is it a problem though? It does look bloated to me but you also said you paid nearly 2k to put whatever the hell you did there so we don't know how it looked before and whether your description was accurate then. It would have been way cheaper to go to a doctor who would would have probably tell you that it's just the way your bajingo looks and there's nothing abnormal about it.
As usual: If it's something you think it's a health issue, go to the doctor.
Any man who has a problem with your absolutely normal vagina does not deserve it.
Stop fucking around with your genitals anon, it's really not weird and you shouldn't spend money on this non-problem.

Could you be talking about the clitoral hood instead of the clitoris? I used to mistake those terms all the time (Sorry if it's not the case). The clitoris itself is very small, like the other anon said, and the clitoral hood generally has an length of 2-4 cms I think, but there's no "normal"
I'd consider it a big clit if it covered the area of a fingernail.>>163499
Go to the doctor.
For the past couple of months my pelvic area keeps feeling… weak? I feel something that’s not like full cramps, it’s like numbness like I overdid it with the vibe but without the greatness. It’s in my bladder/vagina like I’m going to wet myself out of either holes. I’ve never had this before and this has only started since I was put on birth control. Has anyone else ever experienced this before? My leaflet doesn’t say anything about this on the list of symptoms.>>163499
have you changed your diet recently? Started eating things like asparagus, garlic, or lots of junk?
Tbh if you're young, healthy, and haven't given birth or lost a ton of weight recently (like gone from a good weight to underweight really quickly) it's not likely that you've lost pelvic muscle tone.
Is it accompanied by bleeding? I get an uncomfortable pressure like I'm gonna wet myself before I start to bleed on birthcontrol (I have the rod thing). Maybe worth bringing up with your doctor if it's worrying you

Anyone ever had an issue with not being able to use a menstrual cup because they have a septate hymen? Like, it's kinda awkward but I've been told that to "fix" it I'd have to get it surgically removed so it doesn't wrap around my menstrual cup when I pull it out. The first time I tried to use a tampon my hymen got suck/wrapped around it and I thought I was going to have to go to the ER or something.

I recently started tracking my period. When do I consider it to be officially started? I have some minor spotting and cramps a few days before I have a full bleed.
Is the technical start at the spotting or full bleed??
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.
Your vagina is like a perpetual slip and slide so it's hard for fibers and various crumbs to stay inside for long.

I use Flo which allows you to record spotting. Idk what other apps are like but the list of things you can select is exhaustive. I don’t even bother with most of the categories.
I couldn't imagine ever shaving again, I would get ingrowns and rashes and after 2 days it'd just be prickly and ugly.
Now I only trim whatever's too long. It's soft and comfy.
Never shaved since I got my first hair. I do
trim and have used removal cream to rid of any excess when I wear a swimsuit.
How do you exfoliate your crotch? As in, specifically? I didn't know that could prevent ingrown hairs.>>164180
I get what you're saying, but for me shave balls are licked balls. I don't go anywhere downstairs on a guy if he's hairy or prickly, and some guys can even have hair on the shaft, THE SHAFT! It's gross.

I use an exfoliating cloth on the mons pubis while taking a shower. If I bother to, I then stretch out the skin on my labia (not the soft tissue that feels like the inside of your cheek, but more like the part closest to your thighs
) until it's taut and gently rub the cloth in circles. Rinse, moisturize my mons pubis (not on labia pls), optionally oil.

realized I forgot to drop pic
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.>>164054
I only trim back enough for it to not resemble a jungle. When I shaved it completely for a few months (for a boyfriend…) I always just felt slimy and uncomfortably wet, not fresh and clean.
That article is bogus and was debunked already, nothing more than feminist propaganda (i.e. "REEEE how dare you do things men might enjoy!!!":>https://www.nhs.uk/news/lifestyle-and-exercise/many-women-think-shaving-pubic-hair-is-hygienic/
It never even accounted for checking of correlation vs. causation (genital groomers tend to have sex more and therefore tend to get STDs more).>>164555
To answer your question, the only thing trimming poses "less risk of" is ingrown hairs, everything else is not true.>just as bad
It's not bad at all. If you want to shave or wax, go for it.>because my period blood often clots within my pubic hairs
Thank you, Damn. I have one partner that I'm married to, so my risk of STDs is going to plummet. Fuck getting crusty disharge/period goop leavings in pubic hair.
I'll take my strip and occasional ingrowns.
Tough question. I'm assuming that if you're here to begin with you're not exactly a pious/ascetic/similar person, so I'll assume you're talking about something extreme that borders on addiction in which case you should seek therapy itself.>some experience related to therapy
If you mean experience having had therapy, I'm sure plenty here qualify. If you mean giving, then probably zero in this entire site.>>164707
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.
Yea, everything I found online seemed to focus on virginity a lot and I just really wanted a “scientific” answer that focused on anatomy, nothing societal. Thanks for the input tho anon!>>164708
Also I do have health insurance but haven’t seen a gynecologist yet.
Also I’ve done some personal investigating and I think it’s still present (???) just not fully broken/torn? Like I’m pretty sure there’s some opening it’s just small? I also have pretty light periods and I read that can be due to still having your hymen (???)
Honestly all the misinformation about the hymen sucks. I’m definitely over analyzing myself but recent situations have just been making me question myself/body more lol
I've heard and read of hymen breaking partially, so that could be a possibility.>light periods and I read that can be due to still having your hymen
I don't see how that would interfere unless you get one of those extremely rare imperforate hymens of legend, but I'm not a doctor. I don't recall much change in quantity before and after my hymen broke.>I’m definitely over analyzing myself

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.
I have really heavy periods and still have no trouble with baths during my period. It's not like anybody loses pints of blood in the space of an hour. What little blood does come out generally disappears into the water. I usually have a shower too tbf, mostly because I have the baths to soothe my cramps and the shower to actually get clean.>>165542
This may be a silly question, but are you lifting your clitoral hood up to masturbate? Some people don't need to and for some people it will make them too sensitive, but if you don't feel anything at all it might help.

I can orgasm only if my bledder is half full. Idk if it's psychological or physiological or both. I've been masturbating by grinding against a chair with a half full bledder since I was like 10. I'm in my 20s now and I can't cum any other way. It's not a problem for me personally but I can't imagine having a girlfriend or a boyfriend, knowing I would have to fake I feel something nice down there without receiving the only kind of stimulation that works

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.
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.https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26916172/
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.
Are you drinking enough water daily? How's your nutrition? How sedentary are you? How do you sit in your seat of preference?>Am I dying?
If you were, I doubt the most pressing symptom would be vagina-related.
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?
trying to get appointments right now is hell bc of covid and i would likely have to do an online appointment bc of restrictions, but i have no privacy where i’m living rn so it’s not really an option. either way, everything went okay today, so i’m assuming it was just tightness or something!>>166044
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!

Have you tried gently pressing and pulling the skin where your mon pubis ends towards your belly button? It should reveal your clit. Your inner lips always merge at your clit, some has it more obvious than others– it looks like a nub for some, but it can also just look like this
kinda late to this but blood can definitely change colour during your cycle, and you'll likely only notice a difference when wiping/on a tampon or pad. towards the beginning of my cycle mine is pink and then it turns bright bright red, middle it's very dark, almost brown, at the end it's brown.
it's nothing to worry about unless you also have weird discharge/a bad smell/something realllly out of the ordinary!

Is it possible to be born without a clitoral hood? I checked down there and I have literally NO traces of a clit hood my clit is exposed and shit. I don't come from a community where circumsion in girls happens so I doubt that happened. Anybody else?
its literally non existant
masturbating is hard
hard in what way? too sensitive? not sensitive enough? do you notice it rubbing on clothing?
when guys are cut they lose sensitivity as the skin hardens a bit maybe the same as happened here if it has been from birth. any sensitivity from that would have worn off through childhood. can you touch your clit directly easily is there any movement near the base?
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.
Thanks for the input anons. I'm really glad this isn't an isolated case. Generally my periods are light and not painful so I think a bit of cramping is a worthy exchange, I'll definitely be making a switch.
Sucks because I always liked pads due to how low effort they were.
In the meantime - try diaper cream to deal with the itchiness. It's literally formulated to help with this sort of thing.
If your periods are light, as you say, period panties are also a good option. Low-effort, cute, and reusable.

how different is the piv orgasm? can you go several times? with clitoral once I climax I have to rest and piv doesnt do much for me
Sorry you have to rely on scrotes to get you all off instead of using your scrote to get you off. >>167932
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. Where I live docs tend to be booked up weeks in advance so it's desperate times when you have even those simple complaints.
For thrush yes>>168042

Does this work on nipples? I'm pale as an egg but my nips are REALLY dark and I've always wondered if I could whiten them.
Hey, dark nipples are beautiful! I have them and I think they're lovely against my pale skin. If you do end up trying it though, just keep in mind that it has the consistency of coconut oil so I'd be careful not to clog the tips of your nips. Start using it daily, and then when you see results wind back to once a week.>>169213
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.>>169215>>169235
I think anon is talking about the butt crack line
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.
anon it probably isn't like this for everyone but i legitimately don't feel pap smears. yes theylll use that clamp to stretch you out a bit so it's cold and uncomfortable but the pap smear itself is painless for me

Not sure if the correct thread but.
All vaginal ring guides mention that some women get the ring stuck in their bladder through the uethra… How?! Its such a tiny hole, how do you push a big plastic ring through it?
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.

Start taking these and see of it helps, also drinking cranberry juice is very good for UTIs.
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.
>>169566>It makes no sense that having a baby should rip you in half like that from an evolutionary standpoint
Funny you say that because it has been all but confirmed that women who gave birth through c-section had descendants with narrower hips, elasticity, etc. Also I really find amusing how giving birth vertically is not the norm nowadays when it's so obvious.>>169531
Reminder that contraceptives also make you more susceptible to UTIs despite what pharma says because of hormonal imbalance/swivels leave you open for infection. Go off a pill for a while and see if it changes anything.
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.
There needs to be a push for women-operated birthing clinics or home births, because horizontal hospital births are just a scam to make money anymore.
Now I'm even more scared to have kids. I still want the option of an epidural but I wish everything else was able to be done as the mother wishes, no mansplaining doctors, with the safety net of a hospital incase of emergency.
Another gross detail: doctors used to go from autopsies to birthing rooms without washing their hands and thought it was inconvenient and unmanly to wash them if they'd just get them "dirty" again. I read that in a history book about disease and poisons.
Yeah I have a pink pussy and I've never been showered with compliments about it or had any comments about it full stop. You're not going to get any positive feedback or get fucked any better.
It's the same as women worrying about having inner labia that hang a little…women with 'neat lil innies' aren't getting treated or fucked any better than you. He's not going to eat you out for longer or reward you for this shit you're putting yourself through.
Honestly if you're happy with your cup, keep it or buy a new one at the same size if you need variety. No reason to buy a bigger one when your flow hasn't increased.>>169786
I got over bleaching my anus (I gave less of a shit with age) but if people want to, then let them bleach. Personally it was less of "I want my genitals to look pretty" and more of "I want to not look like I shat myself"
Lmao this thread, there are the anons talking about natural birth and there are the anons talking about sticking chemicals on their asshole to bleach it.>>169811
If you have a light flow and the cup doesnt leak there is no reason to buy a bigger one. It is weird how they talk about "virgin/older woman/after giving birth" sizes when it is more about your flow and anatomy. I bought a small cup because I was a virgin and when it didnt work I swithed back to tampons for years. Should have just gotten a big one.
ntayrt but I have never worn makeup and I agree with them, there you go now the argument is worthy of your time.
seriously though bleaching your genitals is fucking retarded, nobody will look at your asshole close enough to make it worth bleaching it and if someone actually cares about bleached genitals you shouldn't even be with a pornisck scrote like that.
normal vaginal discharge, your vagina has to stay lubricated and self-cleaning means sometimes it'll be a bit wetter than other times. Also the consistency of discharge varies depending on where you are in your menstrual cycle. 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.
I thought there was something wrong with me for the first like 15 years of my life because no one explained to me.
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? If it's just the sensation of your own body you don't like then that is fair enough too! Maybe you just don't like it and that's okay.
Shave or not shave if you want to, don't let anyone shame you either way. I get itchy if I don't shave but sometimes I dgaf and deal with it. (Often I keep it bare though.)>>171059>I'm definitely not pregnant
Have you taken a test?? I know stress and losing weight can halt it sometimes, too.>>171068
It could be that you're more hydrated or you're at a different point (pre-ovulation) in your cycle and just noticed. My normal discharge looks like this half the time
So I scooped around my vagina a bit and found some clumps, not thick or nasty like you said but it's the first time it's looked like that for me. Another unusual thing is that my cervix is way higher than usual, like when I'm aroused, otherwise it sits lower at finger's reach. It's happened right after the end of my period after a masturbation session, maybe I haven't cleaned the dildo as thoroughly as I thought I did.
I'm going to wait one more day before doing anything, it doesn't look red or swollen and it doesn't hurt when I pee.
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

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??
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.
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.
>no reason to be going
Not true, it's very good to have checkups to make sure you don't have a reason to go. Be proud of looking out for your health, anon
No but I’m the opposite, mine is really visible and becomes really large when I’ve orgasmed a lot from clit stimulation.
But everyone is different, I love my micropenis.
vaginismus is a psychological condition which manifests physically.
Have you ever had dick inside you? If not, this is totally normal. Take it slow, get a dildo and lots of lube
Im on bc but I know exactly what you mean, anon. I don’t know what it means but I’m assuming its normal.. maybe dehydration, sitting/squishing it too, just random nerve spasms, etc
I wouldn’t worry, honestly

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.
it hurts esp when i get wet like it stings so much? the annoying part is i cant even see the scratch in the mirror and neither can my boyfriend?? wtf have i managed to conjure up a wound? im suffering here
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 don't go for baths because i have sensitive skin and it makes me break out in hives every time. i really hope it is just me being autistic and too heavy handed when wiping, but i'll try everything you told me to, thanks again.
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've had 4 and I can give you my obnoxious list of what to expect/what you might wanna do:
-eat, drink and sleep well beforehand but nothing too heavy in case you feel faint or nauseous
-let your gyno know if you have any concerns about the speculum, the scraper or anything really
-pop a painkiller you would take during your period half an hour or so prior
-it doesn't hurt, I had a few done when I had something bad going on and it hurt about 50% more than with a healthy cervix and even then it was 2/10
-you may spot afterwards up to 2-3 days depending on your body and bleeding tendencies, usually you get a pad from the office just in case
-you may get instant period like cramps that last anywhere from few hours to few days, it's completely normal
Hope this helps, anon, it's not scary at all!
