i'll start us off. i think i have a fucking hemorrhoid or something right on my asshole. it's a round bump, it doesn't hurt and doesn't feel solid. what do i do, anons. doctor google is useless and the thought of making my doctor look at my bootyhole makes me want to die

I'm glad you're not me because I'd try to pop it. Sorry, I haven't got any friendly advice besides don't do that.

I have such a flake scalp. I’ve basically tried it all, I have an almost pathological aversion to my boyfriends touching my hair in case they accidentally scratch my scalp, and it shows up so bad cause I have dark hair. I basically check my hair before going anywhere or doing anything the way people check their teeth for food, I just would love to not worry about looking dirty no matter what I do. I genuinely think I have psoriasis on my scalp, not just dandruff.

is your skin usually dry anon? maybe there is a vitamin deficiency you have that causes dry skin but it shows more prominently on your scalp.

my embarassing health topic is that i went through labiaplasty before, took me a year to save the money. i had it because i self-harmed on my labia before and it kinda showed plus made me insecure. i got botched by the doctor so now i have wonky lips. yey.

Go get over the counter ointment for it, it numbs it and you can pop it back in. Don't let it just hang out. Do not fucking pop it, if it gets painful or you get a fever, go to the doctors. I am the bootyhole expert.

No. 147202

>>147201
sorry i'm retarded, what do you mean "pop it back in." god i'm going to get real tmi. i first noticed it because i was checking out my bootyhole in the mirror, as you do, and when i pushed/flexed (kms) i noticed it. i kind of pushed it back in at the time and prayed it would go away. is that what you mean? it doesn't hurt, like at all.

…do they even go away? i'm a bit of a deviant and like butt stuff, so i don't want my bf to see it. plus i don't think penetration would help matters.

if it doesn't hurt, it's not a hemorrhoid. Probably a skin tag. It's just some extra skin/tissue. I actually read about it on lolcow lol google it for more info. I have one too, doesn't hurt, it's soft, it's just there chilling

No. 147214

>>147205
ahh okay. i don't think it was there before, though… are they something that can develop, or is it possible that i just never noticed it before?

what does yours look like, and where is it? christ that's a weird question. i ask because mine doesn't look like the google image results for "skin tag" and it seems weird that it would be right on/practically inside my asshole though

sorry to be retarded and gross everyone, i'm just a bit worried and want to see if i can figure this out before making a doctor look at my ass

No. 147252

>>147214
NTA, it's probably a hemorrhoid. They can definitely be painless when not inflamed, that anon is wrong. They flare up when you get constipated, shove htings up your ass, or get the shits from spicy food, etc. Anything that would inflame it basically. Go see a doctor to be safe.

I have chronic dry skin on my fingers. It's usually at the top near my nails. My skin often cracks and I can't stop picking at it. No matter how much lotion I put on it, nothing seems to work. I never got a proper diagnosis.

No. 147270

>>147193
If you’re sure it’s a hemorrhoid, just apply a little bag of ice to it and keep it there until you start to notice the size reducing. That’s what’s I did and it instantly went down. It could possibly be a skin tag but putting ice over it wouldn’t hurt just to make sure.

Do you drink a lot of water before bed? That tends to happen to me a lot when I either drink a lot of water or if I’ve eaten something that tends to make my stomach bloated/gassy. Idk if your stomach rumbles every time you go to bed or just occasionally, but maybe pay attention to what you eat before you sleep to see if there might be a pattern between what you eat and what makes your stomach rumble?

Does anyone use scented baby wipes? Long story short, landlord said no to installing bidets so I decided to go for baby wipes instead. The unscented smell is kinda…baby wipe-ish if that makes sense? It definitely has a smell, just not one that's from any additives. I was just not sure if switching to a scented variety would result in a yeast infection.

No. 147379

Lmao same. Mine doesn't hurt either, but sometimes it bleeds. The bump has always been there. I was embarrassed when I went to the gynecologist and she was like "looks like you have a hemorrhoid."

How do you deal with your vaginas' smell?
I know smell depends on bacterial flora and that we often go through undetected infections that give strong odour to vagina.
I've always been somewhat paranoid about this because it always seems my vagina has a smell so I never ask my bf to perform oral on me, despite washing me regularly and especially before every intercourse.
I do routine checks at the gynaecologist and last time she told me I had vaginitis based on the smell that she never detected before on me, so she prescribed me one week of vaginal suppositories and monthly douche.
Since then my paranoia has grown bigger. The fact is, when I wash it the smell seems normal, but after a few hours and especially if I sweated (not to mention peed) the smell comes back.

So, is the smell normal in all unwashed vaginas or is it just me being wrong?

No. 147410

>>147405
Maybe you don't wipe right. I had that the longest time, like some piss was caught by the lips. Maybe it's the anatomy of some vaginas

I'm sure I had a hemorrhoid for one day and it just went away, had that happened twice in my life.

Also I have a mad dandruff problem like the other anon here. Head and shoulders helps actually but fucks up my hair so I don't use it anymore. My mom used all kind of home remedies on m, head but nothing worked.

Something I'm really a bit worried about is that I have slime (clear or yellowish) after I take a shit leaking out of my asshole.

No. 147414

>>147405
Go to a different gyno, and don’t ever douche your vagina. Douching actually makes you more likely to develop bacterial vaginosis.

Some degree of smell is normal, but this is clearly something that is worrying you, so again, go to a different gyno, if there is something wrong like BV you will need antibiotics or other medication to deal with it.

No. 147415

>>147414
She's been my gyno for 5 years, only detected the smell once (vaginitis later confirmed by pap test).
She recommended the monthly douche because I have a IUD and douche is to prevent bacteria proliferation due to presence of the strings.
I never smelled another woman's vagina so I really can't tell if I am exaggerating or not.

That's not helping. Foot problems take a long time to fix but it's all painless and easy stuff, it's only a matter of applying creams as often as possible, keeping your feet well ventilated and disinfecting your shoes. You're an adult anon, fix that literal fungus.

I hope every anon here with a slightly yellow toenail or cracked heels reads this and goes out and buys some treatment gel for it, during lockdown is the best time you're ever going to to get to stop this from becoming permanent.

I definitely cannot orgasm through PIV because of similar reasons. I try to focus on the intimate part (being close, open, vulnerable) of sex because focusing on what feels good vag wise is a lost cause.

I only get acne on my forehead. Instead of doing anything about it I just grew a fringe. I've been making sure to wash my face more but specifically my forehead and between my eyebrows is itchy and cracky and dry no matter what type of lotion I use, it's really gross. Sometimes, if I emote to much in a conversation I can see little flakes falling from above.
My knees have suddenly decided to flake as well, even though I haven't changed the body lotion I use.
I have a bunch of pink or red raw patches around my fingers, because when I tried to stop biting my nails I just bit off the skin around them instead. It looks uglier but I enjoy the texture of skin between my teeth.

There's no pretty way to say it– I keep tearing my asshole when I poop. Is my asshole too small or are my shits too big? I couldn't tell you, all I know is that as soon as it finally heals, I wind up ripping it open again. that shit hurted (literally)

I get cysts around my vagina/upper inner thighs, sometimes around my bum and occasionally have bum acne as well. They're really painful when they pop up which isn't super often, but when they do, they stick around for too long and hurt. I don't know whether to go to a derm, an obgyn, or my GP, but either way, I am SO embarrassed. I've been just dealing with them for years, but I want to start treating them bc I want them to go away faster and more permanently, but damn, it is really, really embarrassing, especially since most other things about my body are generally normal and attractive.

No. 148332

tmi but i don't think it was the actual sex in my case. this is just my theory, but i think it was from straining way too hard every time i shit or went to clean my bootyhole for fun times. i also did some solo stuff after not doing any butt stuff for a good while, and i pushed myself way too far. i could feel a…not a tear, i don't know how to describe it, like a pop, maybe? right on the ring

medfag here
hemorrhoids can form secondary to anal penetration if you get local trauma (basically if you don't prepare properly by stretching it slowly, and don't use enough lube) constipation, pregnancy, sometimes they can also appear when you have to lift heavy weights (it depends on the person)

They don't go away easily, they usually only go if you have surgery, which is done when there's too much bleeding or/and pain involved.

You can help the pain by drinking lots of water to avoid constipation, avoiding seating on the toilet for too long, not eating spicy foods (you know, the level of spicy that actually irritates your anus) and using hemorrhoid creams/ointments

if you try everything but it still bothers you too much, go to a coloproctologist, I know having someone checking your anus is embarrassing as fuck but seriously, having a bleeding painful anus is worse, don't be shy, I've checked many butts before and I can't even remember details anymore since we see so many people all the time.

The strange part is, I hardly have hair on my armpits or much pubic hair, but hair grows everywhere that I refuse to even shave or wax anymore since it grows back the next couple of hours.

How can drinking more acid help with combating acid? You need a base to neutralise acid.

If anon doesn't want to buy antacids, she can just dissolve a spoon of baking soda in some water, it's a base and it works perfectly at neutralising stomach acid.

I have a big, long skin tag/mole right near my fucking asshole. I've had it all my life and it doesn't irritate me really and I have no issues with cleaning down there (it doesn't get dirty) but, it will stretch out sometimes from sitting or when I do certain exercises/activities (biking). I want to get it removed eventually but, my main question is I'm not sure if it is a skin tag or mole or has another name for it? It's basically shaped like a mole, is lifted like a skin tag but, stretches out way further then most skin tags. Any ideas? I don't dare to cut it off myself because if I even pull on it I feel it.

I had similar symptoms. Go to a doctor. You will most probably get prescribed a proton pump inhibitor which greatly reduces the amount of acid your stomach produces. You also might get a gastroscopy to see if you have any ulcers or if you have a h. pyroli infection which can cause your symptoms. It's kind of dangerous to ignore your problems because constant acid irritation can lead to cancer. And please don't drink lemon juice like that anon suggested, it's literally like adding gasoline to the flame.

Sooner rather than later. Don't have insurance so I'm gonna save up money. Does it cost a lot to get calculus removed?

I wouldn't call mine stubble but I have a few random hairs that grow on my chin and cheeks that are thick and dark. Thankfully they're so few and sporadically located that I can just keep them plucked w no real issues.
I do have rather thick sideburns but they're not terminal hair like a beard, just dark peach fuzz, but it's kinda embarrassing so I either wax or nair them every few months

Do either of you use a scalp massager for the dandruff? I had the same problem and the only thing that's reduced it is using pic related. The spikes bend easily and don't get all caught up in long af hair, and you don't have to press very hard at all. I like using it while my hair's still dry then again in the shower. Also it just feels nice lmao

>>148626

It'll be okay anon!! There could be a lot of factors. I've been in the same boat this summer and can chalk it up to pulling it back a lot, stress, the amount of nutrients I've been getting, or all of the above. Are you getting enough protein too, anon? That's a big one

I went to the doctor about this issue today and she gave me some advice and antibiotics but gave no real suggestion what the problem could be other than it might not be a UTI but,
I've had chronic urethra and bladder pain and trouble since early childhood but in the past couple of weeks it's the worst it's ever been and nothing like any pain I've experienced before down there.
I've been almost completely unable to pass urine for over a week and the pain is simply unbearable.

I'm extremely careful about avoiding getting things like towel fibers on my genitalia and never use scented soap to wash it, I'm starting to feel that my urethra is somehow… faulty? My whole life my damn piss sprays out of the toilet often when sitting down despite having a vagina and my ex gf told me this wasn't normal and I was surprised.
It feels like if you put a spoon under a high pressure tap basically and I can almost even aim pee when standing up.
I've seen countless doctors in my life about these issues and had my genitalia inspected once but they never know what's wrong with me.
I don't think it could be an STI because I haven't been sexually active in 5 years and only have been with 2 partners and I was the first person either had slept with.
Most experience was as a teenager with a girl my own age who also had no previous sexual experience so I doubt it's something transmitted.

When I was a teenager I remember taking a urine sample and crying from the pain of pushing it out into the cup and then my doctor saying something along the lines of "There was visible blood in your sample but your pee is normal" which was incredibly useless.

I've never regularly masturbated for multiple reasons but mainly because the urethra stinging sensation afterwards is simply too painful for me and lasts for sometimes 24hrs no matter how gentle I am. I'm so beyond sick of this.

I even installed a detachable shower hair to make sure I'm washing it effectively to prevent problems but it's not enough.

I doubt anyone has an answer to what possibly causes this but I'm curious if any other anons can relate or have experienced problems like this, am I just stuck having piss that stings the fuck out of me and no sex life for the rest of my life? The most shameful part is the pain made me develop a mild pee kink as a child I assume as some kind of warped coping mechanism combined with being too exposed to deviantart unsupervised too young.

>>147196
I have the same issue anon, thankfully I don't have dark hair at least but such massive gross flakes constantly get in my eyebrows and falls onto my face and it's really gross.
I was diagnosed with both eczema and something similar to psoriasis (I forgot the name unfortunately but it isn't the same thing just similar symptoms and not dandruff).
If the flaking doesn't feel slightly scaly it might just be that you have sensitive skin so don't worry too hard but I get that it's stressful. For me stressing over it makes it more severe which gets me stuck in an endless cycle.

Using a pharmaceutical shampoo called Nizoral helped me pretty immensely and might help whether it's dandruff or a skin condition.
I don't recommend things like head and shoulders shampoo the chemicals made my skin dryness much worse tbh.
I'm sensitive to certain chemicals and shit like that in most shampoos and conditioner.

Hey, I have had almost similar problem since I was 14 and went on birth control. Urethra just went really strange and would flare up in pain, while tests came back that there was no bacteria present.

I have spent 8 years searching and even going ti foreign doctors, and in the end the answer was that we just have extreme sensitive urethra/bladder. I am not satisfied with this answer and think it could be that the urethra is too small or too thin (you can ask a doctor about an op where they stretch it but I haven't looked into this).

Some things that have helped for me are drinking probiotics every day (yes every day drink them), and taking D Mannose tablets/powder in your water. After months of taking these I stopped getting so much pains altogether, though if I drink too much soda one day it can easily flare up again.

I've never been diagnosed with IBS or anything like that but I am prone to a nervous stomach. Occasionally, when I'm out for walks/runs or hikes, I get the sudden need to poop (like less than 5 minutes before I can't hold it) and I have to rush to find a bathroom. These situations are fairly traumatic as I feel disgusting and out of control. This was fairly manageable before COVID BC I could always go into a Cafe or store to use their facilities but now all the businesses around me aren't letting people use their bathrooms anymore. I'm getting so that I'm kind of afraid of leaving the house for fear of having an episode. Or maybe my fate is to just walk around the block forever. I've been tracking what I eat to try and find a common trigger but nothing so far… I'm starting to resent my body for holding me back from experiencing the summer.
This is made all the more confusing because on my non episode days, my poops are super regular, usually with the same consistency and amount every day within a 30 minute window each day.

You won’t remember most of the procedure, but be sure someone is there with you to help for a few hours directly afterwards.

I very strongly recommend staying away from the pill. Both times I tried it, I had infections, a fever and weakness up to a full month after taking it.

Is it at all possible for you to pull it to the surface with a needle and tweezers in front of a mirror? The most important part is to pull the hair up without completely tweezing it out, so the area can heal and the hair won't just grow back underneath a scar.

You're doing it right! For good hygiene it's also recommended to try to piss after sex to make sure no semen stays in your vagina (obv different holes but the pressure will make it leak out better). You can use gentle soap around vaginal entrance, but never inside to keep the good bacteria cozy and safe. It's messy but I agree, feels much better than with a condom, would be hard for me to go back to using it.

Story time. Once when I was like 10 I started getting this orangish red discharge in my underwear. My mom was confused by it but thought maybe I was just starting my period. It’d be young but not ridiculously young.

Anyway it kept going on like that, but sometimes some would end up in the toilet when I peed and it’d float on the water like oil. Ended up getting taken to the doctor where we worked out that it was because I’d eaten like three packages of cashews a few days before.

sorry in advance if this is gross, but that's kinda what this thread is for I guess.

anyway, for the past few months or so, I've been having trouble holding in poop.

whenever I have to shit I have to shit right then or else. like, it's super urgent. I'm able to hold it in most times (just barely) but I don't like risking it.

today, however, I was not. I just shit myself. I was on the phone with my insurance, and felt diarrhea abruptly coming on. I didn't want to go have diarrhea while I was on the phone so I tried to hold it in…. bad choice. it just starting forcing itself out. oh, and it was the burning kind of diarrhea. it kept coming out, and I kept thinking it was done but more would come out.

later when I finally was able to get into the bathroom, there was shit everywhere. on my legs, my ass, even my vagina. yes, shit got into my vagina. it was the pure liquid shit too which made it even harder to clean up. I tried to clean it out of my vagina, but I eventually stopped because I think I was just making it worse and pushing it further. anyways, now my vagina is itchy and burny feeling.

I couldn't get in the shower because our shower broke 3 years ago and since my parents don't give two fucks about hygiene they never bothered to fix it. if I want to shower, I have to go to the gym. oh did I mention this all happened right after I took a shower there?

I didn't even it anything out of the ordinary today (or yesterday) or even have coffee which can make me poop. I'm convinced this may have been a side effect of one my medications.

Jesus Christ!!! Anons, hemorrhoids is not old ppl disease. Everyone gets it. It just happens more often with ppl in their 40s. There are three kinds of hemorrhoids:internal, external, and mixed. If it hurts, it’s external or mixed. If it does not, it’s internal. Hemorrhoid is the engorgement of the venous system of your anal canal. Lack of fibers, chronic irritation to anal canal (e.g. anal sex), old age (degeneration of connective tissues that protect your vessels), pregnancy, prolonged sitting, straining, and chronic constipation are risks for hemorrhoids. Adding a little natural laxative to your diets (e.g beans, apples) will make a difference. If you’re too lazy to change the diet, go get a package of docusate, mix it with water and drink it every day. Soft stool guarantee.

I know what you think and the answer is no, docusate is the stool softener. It does not cause diarrhea.

When I was on the pill (for my debilitating periods) I had the worst side effect. My vagina smelled so bad. And no matter what I did it wouldn't go away, and I would have to change out of my underwear like 2 to 3 times a day because the smell was so god damn strong. It was terrible. I'd rather be in pain than that, but I haven't had my period in a month, which makes me happy, but I know it'll come back and hit me like a truck when it's back to my normal cycle..

Turns out a few years of alcoholism caused acid reflux to splash into my esophagus, windpipe, and sinuses at night while sleeping - damaging my sense of smell/taste. Cutting my drinking down to a few times a month has restored most smell/taste over time.

I used to casually tell people I lost my sense of smell but with COVID happening, I feel like I have to hide it even more than I already do. I've never brought it up with a doctor so if related issues arise in the future it's going to be a weird story.

You ladies don't know how much I missed the smell of simple things. Whenever I can smell something 100%, I will spend a few minutes savoring it in case I lose my sense again. Cardboard, celery, ballpoint pen ink, warm laundry from the dryer, gasoline– all smells I missed. Savor your senses.

I've had impacted earwax in both ears for over a month now. Like, it's to the point that no wax leaves my ears at all, from what I can tell. I've tried Dabrox but all it seems to do is move the wax around, which helps me to hear better, but if I stop treatments, it will just build up around the eardrum again and drive me crazy.

Has anyone had any luck taking care of this problem at home? I really don't want to have to see a specialist for this.

You don't need to see a specialist, any nurse can syringe it out in 5 mins. It feels amazing and I HIGHLY recommend it over anything you do at home, there's really no comparison. Idk what Dabrox is but I'm assuming it's ear drops? They're good to soften the wax beforehand but you need to use a syringe or squeezy bulb to actually remove it. The bulb isn't very effective though and it's blocked my ear with water before.

I wanna share something embarrassing that ended up serious. Thought it might help someone.

I've always had some issues with constipation, and I have endometriosis. I stopped taking birth control for that because it was fucking with my mental health, but so what, a lot of women have endo. I gradually got accustomed to being in pain and having bowel symptoms around my period.

Because of that sometimes I have hemorrhoids, whatever, I just deal with them, right? Bright red blood in the loo is not that alien to me, and I know it's not really serious.

Well over the summer I was fucking depressed. Lost three close family members, isolated myself from friends, went through a breakup. I was running and a lot and annoyed that my abdomen still seemed a little puffy despite all the exercise, but endo - I'm used to seeing that off and on.

I started pooing pure blood. Like streams of blood without any actual poop. But no real pain, so I just figured I had an internal hemorrhoid somewhere and it ruptured. I was losing a lot of blood though, sometimes cups. Ignored it, it went away after a few weeks.

A couple months later, I am feeling nauseous again and end up throwing up bile with a lot of pain in my stomach. I thought maybe I had an infection. After 3 days of pain I go to the emergency room. Apparently part of my intestine was twisted and dying. I had surgery that day and had to get about a foot of intestine cut out. It's not clear whether the endo was the cause but highly likely. I was in the hospital for 9 days. And now I have a scar on my belly button, plus scars from drains, and I lost a ton of weight but have a puffy belly from surgery.

don't ignore bleeding from your butt. I was stupid (and depressed, but still stupid)

Anon, try plain mineral oil and liquid docusate sodium. They are better than debrox if you happen to be one of those that have ear dryness or actively shedding a bunch of skin from the ears.

If that does not work, try finding someone with experience in ear irrigation which involve syringe 200 mL of either saline or 10:1 hydrogen peroxide into the ears and rinse them out.

If both these don’t work, then you happen to be one of the unfortunate soul that needs manual removal of ear wax. There are two ways: the rogue way and the professional way.

The profession way is straightforward. You go to ENT specialist that will regularly remove earwax for you. That involve a bullshit visit to the office and let them take a look of your ear with an overpriced otoscope and suction. Since they can clearly see your tympanic membrane, there’s nearly zero chance of perforating it unless your doctor happen to have too much fun prior to your treatment.

The rogue way. You remove it yourself. Worst case scenario, you puncture your ear drum. If that happens, your doctor will prescribe you antibiotics drop to prevent infection. Assume things go well, it should heal on its own within hours to days. If it is something serious, be ready to see your ENT for further recommendation.

Sincerely,

Your AnonQuack.

Sorry to hear what you’ve been through, anon. Assuming your problem arose from chemical damage and not due to viral or brain tumors, there’s a chance it may come back. Unlike other neurons, olfactory neurons do have regenerative capabilities. Depending on various factors, it can occur over a period of days or even years.

My advice is to get treated for your reflux, stay sober, avoid further damage to your olfactory neuron (quit smoking, drinking, etc), and do some smell training if you ever want your ability to smell to come back. It may not be 100%, but having some degree of recovery is better than nothing.

I found a big, hard, weird bump in my vagina and got an urgent appointment at a doctor. The doctor looked around with the opener tool and said she doesn't see anything, and I thought she was stupid because the lump was the size of a medium sized grape. She looked and looked, put some other tools in and felt around for some time and it turns out I was the stupid one because apparently it wasn't a cancerous lump, it was just my fucking cervix. I wasted this doctors time during a pandemic just because I am a retard who doesn't even know what a cervix is supposed to feel like. To my defence, the sex ed regarding female shit in my school was basically "vagina is this mysterious hole somewhere and babies come out of it" and the lump was in a weird angle so I'm not that mad at myself, but still

but the surgery to repair my intestine was a laparotomy too. There was endo all over that section of intestine.

I have to follow up with a specialist gyn now (I live in a different country now so I had been putting this off).

I know it was dumb to ignore that symptom but I've had rectal bleeding before, and had drs dismiss it as internal hemorrhoids even after I was diagnosed with endometriosis. Granted, it was never that much, but when you have been shut down in the past and now you're faced with it in a foreign country, well…

If I had had pain, I'm sure I would have gone to a dr. But hemorrhoids are often categorized as "bleeding from the rectum without pain." I had discomfort then, but no pain directly associated with the bleeding (just discomfort, but I was used to that).

I did have nausea and a couple isolated episodes of vomiting over the summer but I blamed food choices or too much caffeine. It wasn't until I had intense pain + vomiting bile that I went to the emergency clinic. Even then, I tried to wait it out.

If I had waited longer, and my intestine had perforated, I might not be here writing this post.

If it's an ongoing issue then it sounds more like interstitial cystitis. If you'd had a bunch of untreated UTIs you would know about it as the infection would escalate and make your urine pungent, then spread to your kidneys and make you very ill.

I have interstitial cystitis and it makes it hard for me to judge if I need to see a doc or not, I've tested negative for UTIs at times when I was convinced I had one.

Look normal to me. It’s definitely bruises, not melanoma or any skin malignancy. You said you sit all day and can’t bang you leg against anything but did you apply any pressure them AT ALL.

It doesn’t take a serious hit to any parts of your body to get bruised. It can happen by virtue of pressure (resting your elbow on your leg, cross your leg, etc).

The underlying reason why someone is more easily bruised are not always explained. Some maybe deficient in vitamin C, a coenzyme for collagen synthesis that maintains your ECM. However, scurvy is rare nowadays considering the food abundance. Some may have hematological disorder that cause you to easily bleed and bruised. There are many of them but they are extremely rare even for the most common one which is vWF deficiency.

Last but least, the answer you always get from webMD:cancer. Leukemia and lymphoma can interfere with platelet and makes you susceptible to bleeding -> bruise.

My advice tldr: unless you have anemic signs (lightheaded, increased HR, pallor, excessive menstrual bleeding, etc), I wouldn’t worry too much. Scurvy could be the cause but it’s unlikely in your case. The treatment for scurvy is nutritional support anyway.

I love that image, I forgot about the LED sky billboard in Beijing. Sorry to hear about your eyelashes anon, this happened to my mom when she got the flu a couple years ago. You could try protecting them with a lash growth serum, they can be pricey but more effective than castor oil as I understand. In my mom's case they just grew back after a few months. Consider consulting a credible aesthetician if you can afford it. I would also be cautious about wearing falsies or lash extensions if that was on the table for you. Good luck anon

Speaking of pedicures, how much they can actually soften your skin? Like, do they fix callouses and dry areas completely?

pedicures never did shit for my calluses. if files & pumice stones aren’t doing it, it’s time to move to a rasp or maybe even one of those vegetable peeler-type things to take off some of the top callus layers. also make sure you’re doing your callus removal after a bath or shower so your feet are as soft as possible, it’s a lot easier than trying to go at hard dry skin

hi anons, do any of you struggle with an overactive bladder?
I've dealt with it since I was a kid and it's really started to affect me since the pandemic started - all the cafes etc in my city are closed so I can't go out for socially distanced walks without worrying that I'll need to pee after around 20 minutes and will have nowhere to do it. Sometimes I pee up to like 5 times an hour. Tried going directly before I leave the house and I just need to go again ten minutes later. I do drink a lot of caffeine and very little water so I've decided to cut down on the former and increase the latter. I've heard that going "just in case" when you're not sure if you can pee actually increases bladder sensitivity so I'm trying to stop doing that. But has anybody had this issue and managed to solve it by themselves?

Sometimes I literally cannot pee despite my bladder being painfully full. At first it only happened in the morning so I assumed it was my muscles keeping me from bed wetting having trouble unclenching themselves but now I have a hard time peeing midday in my own comfortable bathroom. It’s like my bladder won’t “unclench”, and the more I get upset about it the harder it is to release. What the fuck?

I have a similar issue and idk why but it's possible to "train your bladder". It's not recommended to hold pee generally unless you suffer from an overactive bladder.
I'll also have to work on it and quit slacking. Sometimes when I sleep I hold so much more without discomfort waking up and I'm pretty healthy, so I think it's just some overreaction or bad habit from always peeing early.
Also, technically bladders can't burst, in the case of it filling so much, your brain would override your muscles and you'd just pee.

I get that in public toilet sometimes so I always assumed it was bladder shyness/performance anxiety, but sometimes it'd happen if I felt pressured for any reason at home (in a rush etc). Bizarrely enough the only thing that works is blocking my ears so I can't hear anything, even if I'm alone. Maybe that only helps me because the main issue was peeing in public and I didn't want to know if anyone was around but still, it always made it possible to go.

For years I've had this on and off pressure/full feeling in my pelvic area. It sometimes is more to one side and sharp ovary pain accompanies it at times. I had it get really bad two different times in my twenties and I was referred to have scans done. The waiting list for that stuff is so long that by the time the appointments came I wasn't actively having the symptoms…results showed nothing. The timing was always off like that as I can't afford to go privately and skip the queues.

I'm back experiencing it again, I'm 32 so I'm about a dozen years into this cycle. I'm in no position to pay for private scans still. I wonder if it's ovarian cysts and they are sorting themselves out in that time I'm stuck on waiting lists. Anyone know if cysts can do that?

I think I have some sort of neurological problem. I have massive incontinence issues at 22 and I do kegels every single day but despite my efforts my bladder still fails me. I haven't slept properly in a year because my legs twitch when I lie down. On top of that, when I lie down in bed it feels like bugs are crawling all over me/biting me and that I'm being electrocuted all over my body, despite no real stimuli being there. I probably sound insane or like a meth addict, but its been driving me up a wall and I'm seeing a doctor about it today.

I vented about this a while back but I'm just still so fucking miserable, I'm in actual hell and I don't know what to do anymore

so 2 years ago I felt like I had a UTI. I basically felt like my bladder wasn't emptying all the way. I was 25 then and only had a UTI once before in my life when I was a kid. I'm not sexually active, have only been once in my life. that was 2 years ago and we broke up about a month or so before I got the UTI. we were together a short time and never even ended up having sex but sometimes he would play with my clit with his hands. I don't think that's how I got it though. I went to the doctor when I first started having UTI symptoms and they tested me and said I hate a UTI and gave me antibiotics but my symptoms never went away. I would go back every couple of months and each time they would test me and say "yeah you have a UTI, take these antibiotics" and the fucking symptoms never waned one bit. then in 2020 I stopped going altogether because they were saying "don't go to the doctor if you're not actively dying" etc etc.

then earlier this year, probably around march, my UTI symptoms got even worse, to where I was having to pee like 1-2 times every hour and very little would come out. I went back to the doctor, same thing happened as always, took the antibiotics and my symptoms never went away. finally I went back in july and told the doctor everything (I almost always see a different doctor because I go to the walk in clinic so I see whoever's available). she tells me I might have BV, because it can cause recurring UTIs. which should be common sense, but I never had proper sex education and my parents never talked to me about any of this stuff, so. she gives me antibiotics and says to come back if I complete them and still have symptoms. I completed them and still had symptoms so I went back.

I saw a different doctor and told him everything. he had me do a test for BV where he gave me a cotton swab type thing to put in my vagina to get a swab. and putting that thing in fucking hurt. but yes, it came back that I had BV. so he gave me these insert things with gel that was supposed to clear up my BV, but due to things fucking hurting being put in there, I couldn't get the tubes in deep enough and it didn't cure my BV.

so I went back again and saw a nurse practioner. she found out I had BV, a yeast infection and a UTI. so I was taking 3 antibiotics all at once. she had me come back after I finished them, and I didn't have a UTI or yeast infection anymore but I still had BV. so I took pills for that yet again. went back and still had it. so now she prescribed me pills and gel to insert but I have been hesitating to take them and do the insert treatment because I know I can't put anything in there without it hurting. and not too long ago my symptoms got even worse, to where I have to pee like 3 or 4 times an hour, even after my UTI was gone and for a while I was even having pelvic pain. they actually did a pelvic exam and ultrasounded my bladder and said it was working "just fine" and it "mostly emptied" when I peed which CANNOT be right. so she prescribed me a bladder relaxant pill to help with the frequent urination. I started taking the bladder relaxant, and in addition to having to pee frequently I started just having this phantom pee feeling of like I might need to go and I might not. I literally always have that feeling now. always, even directly after peeing. at least I used to have a solid 15-20 minutes of not having to feel like I have to pee, but I don't even have that luxury anymore. I took the pills for about 5 days and stopped, but I'm still having that phantom pee feeling, and I think it's the pills that did that but I don't know anymore. I have an appointment with a urologist because the nurse practioner referred me, but they asked me to bring my medicaid card as my only insurance is medicaid, and the numbers rubbed off my medicaid card after only like a month of having it, and now I can't even find it at all, and I can't figure out how to get a replacement because they make it really fucking hard and complicated to get a replacement. that appointment is in 2 weeks and I don't know if I can get a new card by then. on top of the having to pee 24/7 I also have BV that I can't get rid of. and I can't talk to anyone about it, even my family, because it's just too fucking embarrassing and the last time I tried to open up to my mom about something personal she looked really uncomfortable. so I'm just suffering in silence.

I just don't know what to fucking do anymore. I want to cry just thinking about it. I can't fucking live like this anymore and I gave up trying to research my symptoms because search engines are fucking retarded and don't understand what I'm trying to google and just want to bombard me with ads and it just makes me want to cry and kms even more

get a MicrogenDX panel done. you could have ureaplasma/mycoplasma/strep b. the subreddit /r/healthyhooha is very helpful with this, and there is a guide in /r/ureaplasma to obtaining this panel.

the urinary symptoms you have now could be from a pelvic floor dysfunction since you're no longer testing positive for utis. when i was extremely stressed due to infection issues, i developed pelvic floor issues. the chronic BV and yeast is definitely not a pelvic floor issue, though. i would guess that the bv/yeast is actually a strep or ureaplasma infection. and i would also guess that the formerly recurring UTIs were from that same thing. when you go to walk in clinics for UTI, they usually just use a pee stick. if it tests positive for leukocytes, they say it's a UTI. walk-in clinics tend to not do the necessary cultures. however, leukocytes in urine can also be from strep or ureaplasma. they are simply a sign your body is fighting an infection.

i hope this helps nonny. i know how frustrating these issues are, especially because of the shame of seeking treatment.

I don't know as much as the anon above but I relate to the struggle. I had a series of UTIs 10 years ago and I feel like I've just had an overactive bladder ever since. I don't know if it's partly rooted in anxiety at this stage, I get nervous going anywhere new because I look for toilets everywhere I go. Some places have just closed their public toilets ever since covid started and I can't go visit those places since. On at least one occasion when I was convinced I had an active uti.. nothing showed up when tested. My doc is lazy about testing and wasn't impressed with me when that test came back clear. I'm on my countries form of reduced cost healthcare so options are limited. They won't look further into it.

I'm currentlty on macrodantin for a UTI, my symptoms are so constant that I only go the doc and seek out antibiotics when I notice the added uti symptom of really pungent smelling urine. I otherwise live with all other symptoms as if it's normal.
>I can't talk to anyone about it, even my family, because it's just too fucking embarrassing and the last time I tried to open up to my mom about something personal she looked really uncomfortable. so I'm just suffering in silence.
My dad had a bladder infection a couple years back.. he has retold me the story of his infection a half dozen times. I want to rage out every time. He has no idea. He's weird about anything to do with womens health and yet his bladder infection is a story worth sharing with me time and time again lol

I know it's scary and it's frustrating but take every referral you can get, sometimes you reach a point where docs cut you off as having some 'non-problem womens thing'.. if you're being sent for more testing take it all. At least you're moving towards something.

This is going to be disgusting so sorry in advance.

I get really bad stomach issues during exams. Something about the quiet class + pressure of the exam just makes my body decide it's time for explosive diarrhea and then the entire exam I'm pretty much just trying not to shit myself.

In my uni, you're not allowed to go to the bathroom in the first 30 minutes of the test, then you can go once and that usually doesn't completely solve the problem.
I've tried eating only rice&eggs the day before, not eating the day of, but it doesn't help.
The only thing that helps is taking a whole bunch of Pepto-Bismol before and during the exam. But it doesn't solve the problem 100%. I still get stomach rumbling and feeling like I need to go.

Last semester we had exams via zoom. I thought that since I was sitting in my room alone (I have social anxiety) it'd be way less pressure than sitting in a class full of people and didn't take Pepto-Bismol. We were also not allowed to go to the bathroom during the exam.
And well, I literally shat myself. Multiple times. I had to literally sit in my poop while solving math questions. Somehow still passed that test (barely). I was thankful that it was only me in my room. Had to throw away my underwear and wash my pants in the hottest setting. (Thankfully, my pants didn't get poop on them but they smelled awful)

I talked to my family doctor about this problem and she said that since it only happens when I'm nervous, what I need to treat is my anxiety.
So, I took a small dose of an anti-anxiety drug during my next exam and I did not have stomach issues. However, I could not concentrate on the questions at all. I felt like my brain was floating in space. Failed.

Anyway, we have exams soon again and I'm fucking dreading it. I have really hard subjects and it's awful to try to think while all your body wants to do is shit itself.

My doc has talked about IC with me and the only solution (if you can call it that) was to take antibiotics on and off for basically forever. If I'm sexually active then I should take them constantly as a preventative measure or if I'm not sexually active and my symptoms just ramp up I should take the same course of tabs on repeat whenever it gets worse.

It’s right before my period, and I noticed it lessens and becomes barely noticeable if I decrease my sugar intake before my period.

I've notice my pee has gradually gotten way stronger smelling in the past couple years (I'm now in my early 20s). Only drinking liters and liters of water gets rid of it. I don't think it's dehydration and I eat fairly healthy. The worst change happened after starting to have sex. Is this a normal thing to happen after puberty or am I supposed to talk to a doctor?? There's nothing else I'm worried about, it doesn't hurt to pee and the color isn't off or anything, but the smell is disgusting.

Yeah I get this too, it's a low grade UTI (in my case). you can buy strips at the pharmacy to test if you have indicators for a UTI so you don't have to go to the doctor every time.
I don't take antibiotics every time because it doesn't hurt or anything and I have a sensitive gut. But I found eating more protein and less sugar clears it up, something about making your pee more acidic means the bacteria can't survive. And of course peeing before and after sex.

I've had this twice before and both times I had a uti. By the end my urine smelled like it was week old stale urine even as it freshly left my body. I ignored it for a while the first time because I had no pain or urgency. I became so self conscious that I was using wet wipes every time I peed and was avoiding oral sex completely. It was potent. I tried to drink water, I looked into acidity, I took apple cider vinegar. I took cranberry capsules and on and on with the at home stuff.. It went on so long but then cleared up in days once I got antibiotics. I don't know why I didn't go to a doc sooner. It happened again 3 years later and I didn't delay that time. Only needed 3 days of an antibiotic the second time.

Rough penetration was the trigger for me I think. The first time was with a partner and the second time I got it soon after getting a new toy and using it alot. I'm good about peeing afterwards but guess it can still happen sometimes.

So a few months ago I had what I can only describe as a cramp in my asshole. It's happened once or twice before, but only for a few seconds at a time. This time it lasted for half an hour, and the pain was indescribable, like being stabbed in the asshole and then the knife being continually twisted. The pain sort of radiated out from my rectum and into my back and lower abdomen. My vision almost whited out at one point. The only way it felt better was by curling on my side and applying pressure to my hole. It's hilarious in hindsight, but in the moment I actually thought something inside me had ruptured, so I just lay down and waited to die.

I looked it up afterwards, and there's something called proctalgia fugax which describes what it felt like pretty well. Thankfully it isn't serious. I haven't had anything like it since, and if god is willing I will never experience it again.

I laughed when Amy fucking Schumer said

But in the last year my vagina went from smelling like nothing to THIS SMELL!

Even right after scrubbing it in the shower, it smells. Like if I squat the smell wafts up to my nose. Nothing else has changed with my health or hormones or anything. I'm in my late 20s.

This is a photo of my toe. So I've had this weird brownish-red bubble under my skin on my toe, I don't know for how long, I only noticed it a few days ago. When I noticed it, I cleaned and disinfected it, then I had to go to work. After I came back and took my socks off, it looked like this dark spot on my skin just bursted because it dissappeared and there was a small wound in its place, and the skin turned back to its normal color. I thought that maybe I hit myself and I forgot about it and there was like a tiny socket of blood or something, and then it just bursted. I cleaned it again and I was happy because I thought it's going to heal itself. But today this shit appeared again and there seems to be some blood trapped under my skin again. I can't go to a dermatologist right now. The worst thing is I have to wear those uncomfortable workshoes and it definitely doesn't do well for my toes. I know it may be laughable but I got scared it's some type of skin cancer. I had a serious cancer scare last month and now I'm overly sensitive. A wound that doesn't heal itself properly is enough to set me off. Especially that I heard about a case in my family when a guy had some tiny wound in a random place and ignored it but it didn't heal at all and later it turned out to be cancerous

How is your vagina supposed to feel inside? Like the entrace roof? Mines feels like..soft ridges? Like I don't know if it's growths. Is it supposed to be smooth in the entrance and on the top?

Brononnie I used to get the worst goatee of chin hairs and mustache and I would pluck literally everyday, needed my special mirror to do it and everything just like you described. It was embarrassing and I hated anyone knowing I did it, so one simple solution is to just confront the embarrassment and realize it happens to a lot of people and your bf probably doesn’t even care. (If he does he’s gross and dump him) The hair may not be as visible as you think, and I’ve found lighted compact mirrors for travel that you can use for maintenance those 12 days.
I’ve gotten laser hair removal the past couple years so now my chin is much more sparse so another option is to start getting that done now. The problem with that is that your hairs have to be growing in for the laser to work on them, so you might have to get a lot of treatments as the hairs grow back in and you have to let them grow out a little as well right before the treatments. Also you have to have light skin and dark hairs. Might be a solution for you for in the future if you have the option. But good luck and know that you’re not the only one and you’re not ugly <3

Sounds like you have a normal sex drive nona, you just don't like having sex with other people. If trauma's the reason, you should probably go to a therapist. Try to cut down on the masturbation too, your clit will regain its sensitivity over time.

About ten years ago I was diagosed with ibs. I remember reading about fodmap diet and how that can help. I tried various things and at some point it just cleared up and I didn't know what to even thank for my recovery. I guess my biege diet is what actually did it.

I've been keeping notes on my period tracking app and I swear I'm getting a dodgy stomach every month, right after ovulation. I know period poops are a thing but… is this a thing?

I've been paying more attention to ovulation as I'm getting pains too. Stabbing pain near my hip on one side. It alternates but is usually worse when it's on the right. Can cysts or endo cause this? Anyone experienced similar? A few years ago I tried to investigate pelvic pain and a scan showed nothing. Met a dead end trying to find a cause.

your stomach is still part of your GI tract and so would respond to hormones in a similar way to say your colon.
The pains could be your uterine tube contracting to propel the egg down the tube.
That said I would speak to your gyno again if these pains/symptoms are significant and having an impact on your day to day life.
Cysts and endo can cause abdominal pain but it can also just be part of how your body naturally responds to the hormonal changes etc.
You would need medical expertise in order to work out the true cause.

Apparently it’s super common for women to be allergic to Monistat. I remember a site that had average 1 star rating of thousands of women saying it’s like having fire ants or lava in your vagina and even that the pain is worse than childbirth.

A handful of times in my life I've had this experience where I'm hit with an intense pain in my back and stomach. I go to the bathroom because it makes me feel like I'm about to shit my brains out. Then when I try to go nothing is there but I'll be hit with this rush of heat and tingling all over my body (pins and needles in places you never get pins and needles) and I'll either pass out or be very close to passing out. I'll be trembling and sweaty afterwards and feel like my blood pressure dropped.

The only other thing I can connect it to is having ovary pain in the months before one of these attacks happens and in the hours before it happens. So I was wondering is there a condition like cysts that explains an episode like that? Could it be a rupture or a twist or pressure on a cyst? I'm in an awkward position both location wise and money wise to see a doc.
