Nonnies with weird periods - have you ever had small blood clots? I'm on like day 3 or 4 and usually when i pee the blood blends with the water. This time it just looked like specks of sand, coffee grounds, and grains of rice, with the largest 'clot' still smaller than a pinky fingernail. They all retained their shape and did not break up or blend whatsoever which is a first to me. What gives? Google only points me towards large clots but this was literally all clots just varying sizes. Saging cause I'm embarrassed that I'm kinda freaking out lol.

No. 187361

I had a blood clot in the shape of a man once. It fell outta me in the shower and slid towards the drain looking like it was waving its arms going down a slide. I imagine he was yelling "weee!" out of his lil clot mouth

I get that often and think of it as coffee grounds too, it's never seemed to be an issue to me if that helps

No. 187374

Alright I feel really embarrassed asking about this even though this is an anonymous imageboard but, I really do think I have a stinky vagina. I say that because after a day of having worn the same underwear they smell absolutely horrid. It smells sour and strong, best way to describe it is like cat pee. I'd feel extremely embarrassed going to bed with someone and they'd smell my underwear. I don't know what it is :( maybe it's my horrible diet? Does anyone have advice? (also no, I've never had sex before so it can't be a std)

No. 187378

You might have bacterial vaginosis, anon. Do you use soaps in the vag/around the labia? Because that could screw up your ph balance. Go to your doc to get it checked out. Your diet does play a part too though; drink a lot of water to keep things regulated. Include pineapple and/or cranberry juice too if you believe in those articles kek. Your vag isn't going to smell like flowers or candy by the end of it, but it won't be like what you're describing. Good luck anon, you'll figure it out!

No. 187384

Your pH might be off. Go to Planned Parenthood or a doctor. Do you use soaps or any cleansing products ?

I only use soap between my thighs and around my pubic hair area. Maybe I should stop using soap there? I'll do my best to change my diet, drink plenty of water and try pineapple/cranberry juice. if that doesn't work i'll go to my doctor. thanks gals for the advice <3

So I have an annoying blackhead that won’t leave my labia and it hurts a-fucking-lot when I try to extract it with either my nails or even a tiny tweezer, Its location is pictured in the drawing, is there a way for me to remove it? Sometimes it gets itchy and it’s bothersome. I asked my gynecologist as well and she told me it would leave on its own but it has been 3 years and it hasn’t left yet, I also haven’t gone to my gynecologist in 2 years already so I’m kind of worried about whether is some skin issue or something.

No. 187412

a blackhead? damn I didn't even know that was possible. if it's anything like the blackheads on my face, insistently trying to pop it by squeezing the sides (?? I'm not sure how to explain this lol) should work eventually. I don't pop blackheads on my face really hard anymore because it can cause visible broken capillaries but that's probably not a concern on the labia

No. 187413

I didn't even know we could get blackheads there. Brb while I check myself

Have you considered holding a cotton pad/tissue that has been dipped in hot water over the area to open up the pore a little bit? It would make removal much easier if you apply heat. Maybe do it in a warm bath

No. 187430

So the cotton panty thing that another poster mentioned is a good start. Do you wear black jeans by chance? Some pants can have a lot of smelliness from the dyeing process, even after many washes. Other colors, too, but black is the worst.

No. 187460

sorry but what the other anons said is not good advice, if you pointed to the correct area in that diagram it could be a bartholin cyst which is common and normal but can become very full, painful and inflamed when left to its own devices, let alone if introduced to exogenous bacteria through attempted squeezing and popping
if it is just a regular blackhead or ingrown hair it is also not good to pop or squeeze it. very difficult to remove the full plug of sebum or empty the pus sac yourself without pain/damage/inflammation or infection. try taking sitz baths, with unscented epsom salts or a bit of baking soda, and a warm cloth held up to it (not applying too much pressure) after baths or showers, or just while chilling and hanging out in bed as a compress to help inflammation and eventually draw the pus out
you will want to use a clean cloth each time, change your panties very regularly (breathable cotton for sure if possible), and do not touch it with your hands. not because it is unclean, or any weird stigma about a normal occurrence in the female body, but because even if you wash your hands thoroughly, there will be bacteria underneath your fingernails or in spots you missed while washing, and they can also introduce sebum from your fingers, which might prolong it. the pressure from direct hand touch is also not good, as it may accidentally pop or burst it enough to become infected, without draining the entire pus sac inside of the bump.
not trying to sound stern or bossy, but i had one of these develop into a giant painful cyst and do not want you to make it worse, even if it's just a small ingrown or blackhead right now
the dangers of infection on your labia (even majora!) are worse than popping zits or squeezing blackheads on your face because these areas tend to moisten with sweat or discharge in hotter seasons, they are exposed to urine, and are more difficult to keep fully sanitized.
i just reread your post and saw that this has been ongoing for years, that it is very painful to the touch and that sounds a lot like a bartholin cyst to me, especially because of where it is located. you can get it lanced by a medical professional, and that might help with the pain and swelling. please stop touching it though

I've got a history of problems with eczema and get environmental allergen and stress related flareups. Unfortunately, I've also had BV once before and a lot of fucking yeast infections. Is there a fairly foolproof way to tell the difference between my eczema and other kinds of vaginitis?
My discharge doesn't smell yeasty if I put a finger in, it's basically odorless, and it looks yellowish at best, but idek anymore what my normal smell is and it doesn't always smell the same when I see discharge on the outside or in panties. I'm trying to do boric acid once a day for a few days to "rebalance" after my period, but am worried I could do more harm than good or need to go for twice a day. I also don't know how close to having sexual activity with someone else I'd need to stop taking it. I just want the burning to END. I'm trying zyrtec too and gonna see if it helps clear it up because I'm currently having an eczema flareup.

I'm going to spoiler this because it's kinda gross, but during wiping after using the washroom, there was a teeny amount of blood in my otherwise clear discharge. Nothing is burning or irritated, my period ended last Tuesday, I'm not sexually active, and I think my uterus is pretty healthy. What could this be? Should I be worried?

No. 188743

spotting, which is generally no big deal but check this article for possible reasons

No. 188827

It’s usually a few seconds of dizziness, it gets kind of bothersome because almost every time I make a sudden move like put my head down, kneel down or toss in bed I’ll get an “episode”. Some are worse than others and I’ll need to grab onto something to not fall or pass out, others are just light headrushes.
I’ve done some googling and it says it’s hormonal changes, but I found it weird since it never happened to me and it just started around a year ago.

I've seen all the male infographics and posts about nofap and they all suggest that it does help greatly with overall health, but I'm not a moid and I don't consume porn whilst doing it (which seems to be the main issue for most people). So, are there really any physical benefits that come from not masturbating, especially from a female point of view? Like increased sensitivity, motivation, etc. I can never find a clear answer on this. Is it just a case of moderation?

No. 189698

Just speaking for myself, I find benefits from masturbating often. I have anxiety and get random drops in my mood some days, likely just my anxiety levels building up. I find that when my drive is healthy I can almost just reset my mood by getting off. If I hit a slump in my day it's the thing that quickly perks me up again. Gives me a boost rather than tiring me.

I did find that back when I used vibrators it didn't give me the same pick me up, I stopped using them and got back to manual stim. That gives me the type of orgasm where it's more satisfying but also less draining? Don't quite know why.

No. 189700

Not really, nofap is for male porn addicts.

The only benefit of not masturbating when you want to for women would be increased self-control perhaps, and being more excited when you finally can fap again.

I seem to have a rash around my vagina, it's a bit itchy and labia is red but nothing odd besides that (I do see like white spots in my underwear but now I'm not sure if I had them before since it's an old one or not). Never had a yeast infection, what should I be looking out for? I'm not sure if I should worry or not, I did use pads two days ago and maybe I have a rash from that? But I also had sex with a guy two weeks ago and the fucker touched his penis against my vagina several times with no condom so now I'm freaking out.

Only thing I've had previously are UTIs so this is new to me.

Nexplanon worked for me for about 18 months and then I had the worst acne, hormonal anxiety and nausea. It was the best tho IMO for PMDD. Just be careful about having sex if you get it out. I literally got pregnant instantly after getting it out.

it affects everything. hormones are so complicated.

i have to be on it for the first time for a medical reason and i absolutely loathe it. also can't be on estrogen. The only thing i am thankful for is the fact that bc without estrogen is less likely to result in weight gain / breast growth. fuck i hate it though. i'm thinking of just stopping it tbh.

i have blood-filled cysts in my ovary and deep endometriosis that fucked up other organs of mine. i just dealt with the pain until i ended up in hospital. but god i don't wanna take this pill anymore.

luckily when i got it removed my bf and i were having a dry spell so i didnt worry about it and honestly when i got it taken out i started the pill right away

idk it doesnt work like that for everyone. nexplanon made my periods fucked up. if some women are anti BC and pro natural period for the body or something i think that's fair/valid, just not my view. it made my tits blow up though, they looked like fucking implants, it was uncomfortable how firm they would get sometimes.

No. 192071

About the health aspects - BC has longterm effects aside from the blood clotting stuff. Yes, ofc you don't smoke in BC, smoking is absolutely not advised when you're on BC because blood clotting chance skyrockets.
It affects liver health and causes FNH (focal nodular hyperplasia - fibrous knots in your liver) which isn't cancerous but can have painful symptoms. It also causes few types of cancer to be more likely in a patient. And much more. I study this stuff and reading BC as a possible cause for so many diseases really turned me off… but I guess that's just a side effect of being in health care.
It's great you have good lifestyle but BC is ultimately giving you some risks regardless of how healthy you are.
I empathise with taking it because being in power of your reproductive health is really needed but I wish it wasn't so unhealthy.

Main reason would be to get a pap smear. I know they can be vaguely uncomfy but it checks for precancerous cells which are obviously a big deal. Really better to catch something like that early and you only have to do it every 3 years. That being said your GP may do them too so you might not have to find someone else, and it should be covered even under the shittiest insurance as a preventative screening. They’d rather pay $100 for a quick exam over thousands for chemo.

No. 192224

A pap is preventative care and usually free under a lot of insurances. You won’t die, and you’re young, so you’re likely ok. My family has a history of cervical/ovarian/uterine cancers so I get mine pretty regularly. If that’s a thing in your family, doesn’t hurt to get it done every 3 years which is the norm. I get mine done once a year tho cause that shit scares me.

No. 192244

I don't want to scare you anon but please do see a gynaecologist at least once. Ovarian and womb cysts and tumors are extremely common and I had a cancer scare with one, thankfully turned out nonmalignant but you can never be too sure. Lots of my friends have had endometriosis, cysts and tumors causing them health issues without them even realizing it. I know it sounds like a waste of money and time now since you're young and healthy but it could save your life or at least a lot of pain.

bruh just wipe your vagina first and then wipe your butt last. You wipe your vagina from the front (stick your hand between your legs/thighs while sitting on the toilet) and then when you are finished cleaning your genitals you stick your arm behind you to wipe the butt. I can't fucking believe I am describing this rn I thought everybody did it like this. If you don't do it like this you will wipe shit into your genitals and get yeast infections

No. 192560

That’s true. Everyone has to evaluate the individual risks for themselves. Personally I hate the Idea to make myself dependent from needing access to surgical maintenance because of solutions like the copper spiral thing or other implants for example, or experiencing irreversible hormonal issues and other side effects.
I don’t get why so many people hate condoms as a contraceptive so much other than them being relatively expensive in relation to how often you use them. If you’re not clumsy and have a bit of experience they are super easy to use and if they fit the guy properly it even helps them last longer which is really nice imo. Of course they can rip if your not careful, but honestly you shouldn’t have sex if you’re wasted out of your mind anyway because there are many bad accidents which happen. Plus if used properly they have better protection from std’s than other options.

I’m gonna get cannestin or whatever which comes w cream for itching and pills to help resolve it… but is there any point in taking the pills when I’m still on the antibiotics that caused it??

Woah, I didn't know you could get it while on antibiotics? A moid caused me to have a YI and I got super paranoid because it's not common to get it from someone from sex.

I honestly thought I had HIV or some autoimmune disease that caused my immune system to react that way. I got tested and it was just a YI. I used the 3 day cream and suppositories but that shit didn't go away, so I bought some oregano oil, and holy shit, it went away after 1 week, but it came back again and I did the same thing and it went away. Hoping for good. Dumped the dirty moid.

No. 193497

It's not common for a guy to actually infect you with their own yeast infection, but it's really common for sex in general to cause a yeast infection. Especially without a condom, even if they don't cum in you.
Basically if something changed in your life (sex /diet /stress /clothes /season/ activity) you can go 'did x give me a yeast infection?' and the answer will be yes.
Idk where you are but in my county you can buy generic 'bv gel' for treating vaginosis, but it just kind of resets the vaginal environment so it works for YI too.

I know this sounds unbelievably retarded but why the fuck is my canal so small/tight? I can use tampons (up to size R) but can’t insert anything at all, barely even a finger. I assume vaginismus but I’m totally relaxed and horny, I can’t feel my muscles seizing up or anything. It just badly hurts, like trying to stretch flesh that won’t stretch.

It's vaginismus. This sounds incredibly counterintuitive, but grit your teeth and try shoving a small, lubed up dildo up there. It'll be painful but after a minute or two your body will realize "wtf, I'm not actually dying.. I guess this is fine?" Do this a few times and it'll get easier each time.

No offense but penetration is such bullshit. If you have to stockholm syndrome your body into liking it instead of it being pleasurable from the get go what's the fucking point?

No. 195129

Got to say don’t necessarily write it off as vagismus. I thought that for years about myself but the fact was I was just a virgin. To put it bluntly after the initial “get it over with” shove of the first intercourse, I had no trouble after. I had on previous occasions tried to take my own virginity with toys but it was too much pain to inflict on myself. Just couldn’t do it.

it's not stockholming yourself, it's telling your body to stop unconsciously being a whiny bitch. You can decide if you like penetration or not, but that's irrelevant since anon wants to penetrate, this is how you do it. This is how you get over that hump if lube and patience isn't working

I know clots and tissue-like substance may be normal occasionally, but ever since my mother told me that they were a sign for her fibroma I've been paranoiac because I usually have them every period. As far as I can tell I've always had them but I just didn't know that they could be dangerous, I thought that's just how the period is sometimes. They're dark and almost like jelly or tiny pieces of soft meat/tissue. My period's also been changing a bit (it's lighter) so it's making me worried. Does anybody experience something similar?

Unless you keep little period blood eating goblins up there too then yeah I think it’s safe to say the pain is just you hitting a dead end. If it’s the goblins, then they’re probably just getting hungry and biting because all the blood is going into the cup. Easy fix either way.

I have an unusual problem I could use some advice for.

I recently took a course of antibiotics for an abscess I had minor surgery to remove on my lower back. Now, the antibiotics were incredible, but somebody should have showed it a picture of what bacteria it was supposed to kill, because it massacred all the good bacteria in my vagina and left me with a yeast infection.

This is apparently a very common side effect of antibiotics. Would have loved if the doctors or the piece of paper in listing side effects told me that so I could have prepared for it.

The thing is that I can't walk while the abscess is healing so I'm limited to helping myself from my own bed/bathroom.

Could sudocrem help me?

No. 196870

That's what probiotics are for! You should always take them together with antibiotics

No. 196993

Your problem isn't unusual at all, I'm actually going through the same situation right now. If you're still on the antibiotics, take a probiotic supplement 2 hours after taking your antibiotic so the good bacteria have a chance to survive. Eat lots of things that contain lactobacillus like yogurt, kimchi, and kefir. Sudocrem will help, but you might be better off using a miconazole nitrate cream. I'm wishing for your swift recovery, nonna.

When I put my menstrual cup in, could I use an unscented lotion on the cup as a lubricant, or would it be a bad idea? I don’t know if it could somehow shorten the cups lifespan (like I read oils can), or if it’s bad idea to use it while on my period…

TMI for context on the question I live with my family who like digging through my stuff, and I’m a virgin, and if I owned lubricant they would find it eventually and start prying. My mother is very freaked out by the idea of menstrual cups and tampons and has used pads her whole life, she’s one of those people who believes tampons “take your virginity.” I myself have used unscented lotion up there before for getting off but honestly I don’t even know if it’s a good idea.

I semi recently stopped breastfeeding my 2nd kid, which sort of helped. I also got the mirena in March, so my hormones have been kind of all over the place the last few months. I know the dryness is likely due to a lack of estrogen.

I want to have sex and it not hurt or have to use a ton of lube (which only really helps the outside area and not inside). I am super horny but the dryness is really keeping me from dating anyone. I’ve been single for over 1.5 years and I’m horny af. I have dick lined up but I’m nervous.

I am also super sensitive. It looks terrible if I shave close. Red, ingrowns…the works. So I close shave as much as I can with a trimmer along the bikini line(with the grain) and the rest I just trim down with little scissors. But basically I just have a bush. As for the butthole…I shaved that once and regretted it two days later. Nothing like tiny pokey hairs aggravating your butthole for days on end. Don’t do it.

Guys have told me they like the bush…tickles their dick a little (so they say). Why do you want to shave your butthole? To make it more presentable? Unless your ass is terribly man-hairy, I would leave it. Body hair is normal.

I would just trim what you have with scissors. You can get pretty close to the skin with scissors. Around the lips obv it’s a little harder but just take your time.

Do you, nonny. No hate if you wanna shave your butthole. My hair is naturally dark and thick, so my body hair is the same. I shaved my butt once and regretted it.

Personally I don’t think men care. and if they do, don’t let them near your beautiful hairy butthole again.

I shaved for years and dealt with the fact I'd have stubble 10hrs later (very thick, dark hair that showed through the skin even when freshly shaved) but getting it lasered off was the best decision I've made regarding anything hair wise. It's a little costly but not too bad if you're just after a brazillian and with how the cost of waxing adds up, way more cost effective than waxing.

the last couple times after my bf has come in me, my discharge and vagina smell…off. nothing else is abnormal about it. not a different color, odd consistency, or any pain/discomfort. for a while after, my discharge and vag just smell like BO. after a day or so it stops and goes back to normal. doesn’t happen when i masturbate or when we used condoms in the past. i don’t put any soaps in there, haven’t changed my diet, and i always use wet wipes i take with me when i use the bathroom. am i losing it or something? makes me feel like some kind of swampy bog monster

My period blood has always been black/very dark brown and not even close to the consistency of blood. It's very dry and sticky, and it clumps into little balls. It actually looks extremly similar to boba but much more dry. I never understood how tampons were supposed to work since I don't get any liquid blood coming out of my vagina during my period. Its just clumps of this black, sticky stuff. When I google around about black blood everywhere says it is just old but how? My period starts and ends with black blood.

This is odd. So about six months ago, I bought some new underwear; super comfy, softest things I have ever touched, I loved them. After wearing them, I would notice a strong, disgusting smell when I would go to the bathroom. It would smell like… garam masala, but more sour. It was fucking disgusting. I noticed the smell would not be noticable if I wore other underwear I had, so I had a look at the soft undies are made of 62% modal, so maybe it's just the material my coochie doesn't like.

But now, even after not touching those modal undies for a while and wearing cotton ones instead, my vagina still has that same smell. Before it would have an almost sweet, but otherwise very normal and non-pungent smell, but the odd sour curry smell lingers. I haven't been eating anything that carries a strong odor either. Has anything like this happened to any of you before? I should probably go to a ob/gyn but my work schedule is so fucked up I can't go anywhere during normal business hours.

I tried having sex with my bf for the first time without much success. My hymen is fleshy and the vaginal opening has the tiniest hole to allow menstrual blood through. I’ve never put anything in there, fingers or tampons or dildos, and I don’t do sports that would stretch it out.
He tried squeezing his penis in but he’s too big and was wearing a condom which made things slippery and hard to accurately place/control where his penis went. The condom kept slipping off him too. We’re both virgins so sex is a first for us and we don’t know how to get it in, especially with my fleshy hymen.
Any tips on getting it in the first time without pain? When he tried it, it was very painful. Even his fingers hurt so much.. but once he gets them pass the opening, it feels pleasurable.
Idk maybe I should’ve put this in the sex advice thread but I guess I just really want to stretch my hymen out so I can finally have sex. I was thinking if I let him use more fingers, he might be able to finally use his penis. Should I get a lot of lube? Take painkillers?

But then I've had something kind of similar in the past when I wasn't sexually active at all. I also started using a vag soap not long before.

Monthly reminder that no trannies will ever pass.

You will never be a real woman. You have no womb, you have no ovaries, you have no eggs. You are a homosexual man twisted by drugs and surgery into a crude mockery of nature’s perfection.

All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your parents are disgusted and ashamed of you, your “friends” laugh at your ghoulish appearance behind closed doors.

Men are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed men to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even trannies who “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to a man. Your bone structure is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a drunk guy home with you, he’ll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a whiff of your diseased, infected axe wound.

You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.

Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your parents will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll bury you with a headstone marked with your birth name, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a man is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skeleton that is unmistakably male.

This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.

I remember buying a "normal" size Diva Cup and it was so big and uncomfortable that it put me off menstrual cups for another year. I really think you should always err on the side of smaller cups (go off-brand even, I have a Pixie cup now personally) and go up from there, especially for foreign objects that go up your cooch when it's not aroused. Cups hold more blood than you think so overflow is a near-nonexistent issue unless you're abnormal.

Imo being a virgin makes a difference since cups are more involved than tampons– you need to arrange and retrieve the cup with your fingers, versus just stabbing a tampon in a general direction.

No. 200295

Thank you so much, anon. That's really helpful. Now I wish I'd asked beforehand, but I kind of bought it on a whim because I'd been wanting to try one for a while and saw they were on sale today when I went to pick up more tampons.

Since I'm not allowed to return it even if the box is still sealed, I guess I'll try this just to see what it's like and look for a smaller one if it's really uncomfortable or doesn't work out. I really appreciate it, your input was way more helpful than anything I found when googling info on sizes.

So yesterday and today I've been experiencing burning pain from around my vaginal entrance to my anus. It doesn't hurt when I pee, I don't have a weird discharge but it gets pretty bad if I sit for too long and I have work to do.

Any idea what this could be? The only thing that comes pretty close is vulvodynia. How do I make it go away?

Nonas! I need a bit of help recently when I was getting intimate with my gf she said she felt a small bump right somewhere by my cervix(?) Like I guess by the opening. Should I be worried?

No. 200392

probably the first thing I’d check for is a yeast infection. They can take so many different forms, not always yielding weird discharge, and can affect both vag and butthole zones. Since the OTC methods are mostly vaginal suppositories you might see if your GP/gyno/urgent care can give you diflucan which is taken orally.

No. 200393

Vaginas are generally kind of lumpy n bumpy on the inside so I wouldn’t be alarmed, but probably a good time to get a Pap smear and mention it to your gyno or GP that you’d like them to check for that bump and see if it’s anything to be concerned about

No. 200535

I had my pap smear test today and it took almost 30 minutes to get done, with three different attempts. I most likely suffer from vaginismus which is why the doctor couldn't get the speculum inside, we had to stop for a while and I had calm down for a while.

In the end the doctor had to call in a more experienced doctor because she couldn't find my cervix. It still hurt like hell but the other doctor managed to find it somehow.

I've been bleeding all day long and it still hurts. Thankfully I am not interested in vaginal penetrative sex so this doesn't cause me problems in my daily life.

sorry if this is the wrong thread and spoiler for tmi, but i think i just had my first orgasm! i've been trying to have one for years, feeling super weird and defective for never having had one, and it even got to the point where i thought i could never have one because of a mix of being too sensitive on my clit but my vagina consistently being way too tight to fit anything in. but i think it just happened!! it wasn't the whole waves cresting stars exploding whatever shebang, but it was really intense and it made me (good) cry a bit lol. i know people always say 'oh, you'll know when you have your first', but I'm still kind of paranoid that i just overstimulated myself to the point of not being able to take anymore? however i've also kind of decided that i don't really care anymore, lol. i feel a lot better about myself right now!

Same. Well I did technically masturbate successfully with my hands once(just rubbing the clit), but it took sooo long, like around 30-40 minutes, which didn't feel worth it in the end because it took so much time and effort for just one orgasm. Meanwhile I can orgasm in like a minute, maybe a even a little bit less, with a vibrator. I wish I could be one of those women who can get off with just her hands but idk if I could ever get to that level. Tbh I think the problem is that my clit is small and I'm not sure if I could find a way to make it easier. And with fingering I can never do it, like I always feel like a retard whenever I try lol, it feels really awkward and idk how to angle the fingers going in or what to do with the other fingers on my hand. This shit makes me so glad to live in an era where vibrators are a thing.

so, i have these little whitish bumps bordering my labia, right where the pink skin meets the normal skin. i just wanted to know if anyone else has these? my ex girlfriend certainly didn't, and i know it's not an STI because it's been like this since puberty. idk it just makes me very insecure that it looks gross.

No. 201554

The reason why you should wash , say, your armpits is due to personal discomfort of being stinky in day to day life, discomfort for others so that they don’t have to smell you. However, I don’t smell my pussy in everyday life unless I actively try to smell it, I don’t have any sexual partners and nor do I plan to, so those are poor reasons for washing down there. However, I did some light googling and apparently left untreated, smegma can harden and lead to irritation in the genitals, so I should probably clean it just in case

No. 201574

not really an answer to your question but personally i don't wash mine with soap, just water, because i've found that if a drop of soap goes anywhere near it i get super irritated. im very careful removing smegma etc with my fingers + water. of course ymmv but i've been doing this for years and nobodys ever complained about any smell/taste so its all good with me

No. 201580

There are soaps that are designed for use in this area if you're interested in that. I used one for a while and although it didn't irritate the area at all, I also didn't notice any benefit using that over just water. Like you I don't notice any smell and never gotten any comments about the smell, taste, or cleanliness. To ayrt, whether you clean it with just water or use a soap designed for use on the vulva it should be fine, but it's always a good idea to remove gunk from any part of your body because leaving it there could make it itchy and irritated.

I think I've talked about this before, but sometimes when I'm on my period my sex drive goes off-rails.
But there are other times when my high libido appears along with some type of insatiable hunger, and I feel like I need to stuff myself with food all the time. Once, I had some oily noodles while experiencing these feelings and I literally felt like I was having a makeout session while eating them (kek).
I don't know if this is the way my body tries to replenish the loss of blood or hunger is tied to sex drive or whatever. I just wanted to share this because I'm curious as to whether other anons experience these sensations too.

No. 201848

Yeah this is very common. Most girls will have this sensation around their period, a lot of people will call it pmsing and it's kind of a joke that girls will have insatiable cravings for chocolate or sweets. But it could be for salty or savory foods too. Also the sex drive thing is also common, in fact its sometimes the only time I crave penetration even tho I don't like men

Maybe part of it is the body trying to tell you to intake more iron or vitamins from blood loss? Next time its around your period try to eat more iron rich food and see if it helps.

No. 201866

Is it weird that my labia has grown? I noticed in the last few years my labia minora has gotten bigger/longer. It sticks out my labia majora now. I have uneven labias minoras. One side has always been bigger than the other and thats the one you can see sticking out.

I was totally freaked out by the growth of it at the time and tried to stop masturbating as I thought maybe that was what was causing it.

I don't like the length of it now. I constantly feel itchy and sqeeze myself down there in attempt to reposition it when it bothers me.

I had sex for the first time in 2 years and it hurt SO MUCH, there are small spots of blood a day later when I wipe.

The foreplay was good, I was eaten out for a while and figured I was ready from what I know of my body, even if a little nervous. But insertion was quite painful, then when all the way in it hurt less, then again more as time went on (though his technique was really good and I came I think).

I'm 30 now, last good session I had was at around 25, could it be aging? I get insinuations of that when I google of vaginal tissue thinning, but I guess they're talking more post menopausal. I was considering vaginismus too since tampons can hurt, but it wasn't this involunary clenching, plus the tampons hurt once theyre inside, not during insertion. Also I was checked out by the gyno like a few days ago and found infection free and he didn't see anything wrong in the vagina. My partner got tested too and nothing.

Is it just because it's been a long time?

No. 201889

> and I came I think
I think if you have any doubt over whether you came or not then you usually didn't. I spent years thinking I maybe came from penetration here and there (and it was always penetration that gave me that 'maybe I did' feeling) but that was always the thing… it was 'oh I think I came?' If you did you wouldn't word it like that. You'd know. Especially at 30.

I have a long clitoral hood too anon and feel like my clit is further down. I don't understand the picture completely though, from what it looks like your labia stop a way before the vaginal opening? that's normal.

Yah maybe you're right. My legs were shaking hard and I definitely felt good all up my body, but it was more of a building pressure that wouldn't release if you know what I mean. I've had sex where it feels pleasant and then this kind, idk what you'd call it.

Why are men obsessed with "tight" vaginas? Everybody knows a woman is unaroused if her vagina is "tight". I have trouble relaxing for penetration and experience it as a real problem, but a male I was with said it is simply because I am petite and built like this. Is it me or is this obvious nonsense? It's such a strange way of looking at the world. So what is their reason? Please no meme moid answers, I genuinely want to know what this obsession with a tight vagina is about.

Because it's tied to virginity and purity.

A woman with a "loose" vagina is a "whore" and also I imagine it feels better when it's tight. Not like men care that it hurts more when you're not aroused.

>tall woman = big vagina
Pornsick males develop a death grip, which is gripping their dicks tightly to coom, because that’s the only way they can get any pleasure, then they start going for the prostate because their dicks end up dying from the constant use.
They think that it’s pleasurable for us when the vagina tightens because it’s pleasurable for them, they memed themselves into thinking that women feel good if they’re tight because of the

Very interesting… It seemed so unlikely.
>>short woman = small vagina
>>tall woman = big vagina
I think it makes sense to expect perhaps a "smaller vagina" when a woman has a more narrow pelvic region, but even then… Ultimately, there is no logic behind it.
>Your moid sounds retarded and I honestly think it’s kind of a redflag the whole “petite” explanation he gave.
Yes, I don't trust his knowledge of female biology whatsoever. He has only had one long term girlfriend before me and they became a couple when they were teenagers, so it makes some sense that his exposure is very limited. And yet it fascinates me how this phenomenon slipped through despite that.

Shoving something into a tight tense hole vs shoving it into something relaxed will make a difference. It made a big enough difference to where my ex would ask me to grip his dick harder (kegels) when he was about to cum sometimes.

But it's not really a major difference imo. I don't have a peepee tho

No. 202364

I feel really weird posting about this but I’ve been wondering about it. I only orgasm from clit stimulation and I kind of tense myself (?) like kegels I guess while masturbating. If I don’t “tense” myself (I don’t know how to explain it) it doesn’t really feel good. I’m kind of jealous that other girls can squirt or cum because when I orgasm my wetness doesn’t change/I don’t get any more wet. I’ve tried to relax myself when I’m about to orgasm and stop tensing but I still don’t cum. Is this normal?

nonas i asked this on masturbation thread before and a lovely anon told me i'm too young to have not getting wet problems but im a dumb bitch and didnt follow her advice because i could not not masturbate for a week, im dry as hell with my partner wtf is wrong with me? we do foreplay and hes really into giving oral but i dont enjoy it, tbh i would even say i dislike it, finger stuff im indifferent to but it doesnt get me off either. I only orgasm when im alone in my room watching porn with my vibrator. We cant do anything but hump each other cause i'm too dry and tight. I get wet when we're not having sex like kissing and stuff but once the clothes are off i'm dry as fuck. So weird why is this happening? maybe i cursed my vagina too much when i was a teen and this is my payback because i'd get like gallons of discharge when i was younger to the point of changing undies twice a day and i do remember being dripping wet while having sex before but i was on drugs so idk if it was because of that. I just dont get why? i'm attracted to my partner and we do foreplay it should be smooth sailing. Idk if its the glands or my brain its so embarrassing.

i think its normal, im still not sure how squirting works but i'm positive that its not a common thing i think it happens every once in a while, i didnt even know that women were supposed to cum after orgasming what would even come out? i'm clearly not the best person to answer this after a whole paragraph talking about my dry vagina but i think moids glorify squirting and "cumming" a lot because they think female orgasm works like male orgasm like how they ejaculate but its very different, its totally normal to orgasm and not secrete fluids imho

I am miserable.

I had a UTI for 2 years. I took antibiotics 4 or 5 times. I kept coming back because they didn't do anything, and each time they'd test me and be like "yeah you have a UTI, here take these antibiotics". The last time that happened was about a month and a half ago, and the doctor told me that I might have BV because it can cause recurrent/persistent UTIs or something. So she just said to take these antibiotics and wait about 3 days and come back if I still had symptoms. I took the pills and felt like I was getting better at first, but ultimately nothing changed. I also quit taking d-mannose because it stopped doing anything even though when I first took it it helped me to pee less frequently.

So I kept putting off going to the doctor but I finally went back because I couldn't put it off anymore. At first my UTI was making me have to pee at least once an hour which was bad enough, but then it got to the point where I was having to pee 2-3 times an hour and almost nothing would even come out, not to mention pelvic pain and discomfort. I actually got paranoid at work that they would think I was just going into the bathroom to look at my phone or something, but no one has said anything.

I have also been having this pain going up my side. It's like a line of pain on my far right side that goes up my ribcage and actually makes it hurt to breathe in deep and hiccup. I thought this was completely unrelated until the doctor I saw today asked if I had back pain, and I said no but told him about that. He also asked if I had been having nausea which I have also been having lately.

They did a vaginal swab and a urine test and apparently I don't actually have a UTI anymore. Which scares me because I still feel like I do. I do have BV though, and because I'm a dumbfuck when the doctor asked me if I would rather have a vaginal insert or take antibiotics I said I didn't care. Which was SO fucking stupid, I would rather take pills. But anyway, that's irrelevant.

Now I'm scared. I don't have a UTI, but my body is acting like I do. And now that I think about it, it seems like someone once told me that after you get over a UTI your body can still act like you have one. I'm not 100% sure on that though. I am crossing my fingers that this BV treatment will make the frequent urination go away but Idk. Has anyone else experienced this?

hi i don't know how weird is this, but i lost my virginity and despite the sex being insanely enjoyable i couldn't cum. It felt more like being on an all time high than getting pushed over the edge. Is this normal? I still very much enjoyed it so, i just don't know how weird this is.

No. 203394

Most women can't orgasm from penetration alone, nothing weird.

No. 203407

anon i had a similar issue i constantly get UTIs, I've heard women are very susceptible to UTIs because our urethra is shorter and some women are especially more prone to getting recurrent UTIs which I believe am a part of. I relate to you so much its the most annoying thing having to go to bathroom like every 20 minutes. Dont know if BV can cause UTI-like symptoms but it makes sense. I think if your urine test came clean you will be fine. One advice I can give is maybe investigate the source of your UTI if its recurrent there must be something that keeps reinfecting you, it can be your partner because it usually is. For me it was my vibrator i would clean it after use but any time i used it on my bare skin i would get UTI so now I only use it over my panties and havent had UTI in 2 years. Also your body and the bacteria that causes UTI develops tolerance to antibiotics over time so antibiotics may lose their efficacy after a while its not good to take them so frequently.

No. 203453

The only time I thought I had a UTI it was actually a kidney stone from drinking too much soda. That's probably why he was asking about back pain and nausea.

No. 203458

Even if you’re young, if your doctor hasn’t done it yet please insist to get your kidneys checked just to be safe.
I don’t want to scare you and this is an anecdote, but a former client of mine who used to have recurring UTI’s a lot had kidney issues as well.

I got a cup last time I got my cycle and I find myself leaking after 4 hours when the cup is filled about 2/3rds. By then there's still a good amount of space between the blood and the holes (I assume those are for suction?) so I don't understand why this happens. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

No. 203493

It can take a while to get used to inserting it properly. If it leaks, that means the suction seal has been broken, which is a sign of improper placement.

Have any of you nonnies experienced weird changes to your cycle after having the covid vaccine? I had my second shot a couple of weeks ago and now I'm 5 days late when I'm normally pretty regular. It's causing me so much stress even though I know that ,realistically, I'm not pregnant as the last time I had sex was in July and I had my last period in the beginning of August (it was a proper period, not implantation bleeding or anything).

No. 204102

Yes, I heard this from several female friends. Went back to normal after one or two months.

The most likely explanation is that it's your body's response to stress. Mounting an immune response is stress. Catching a viral infection can also affect your cycle. It's a bit late, but there are several studies underway. You could check your government's health agency's website. They might be looking for participants.

No. 204109

I had no problems, but I did start my period the day of my first shot so that might have affected things. I didn't get any bad symptoms from the second shot either.

I can't talk to anyone about this because I'm so ashamed but my doctor thought I had herpes so just gave me antivirals and left me to deal with it when I was suffering with a errosive condition that I now believe was lichen planus. Don't Google it, it's nasty
I've lost part of of my clitoral frenulum, my clit has receded and the hood has tightened due to the errosion and one inner labia became shorter.
My vagina still looks normal but it's not my vagina, the way my clit has receded has left the area looking deflated and older and I have less pleasure. It's been a long time but there are still scars that I think make me look diseased.
I always had a strong sex life but now I don't even want to be touched down there by myself or my boyfriend and sometimes the scars hurt. This is my body forever now just because some stupid doctor didn't believe me when I said there was no way I could have herpes.

So we know getting butt bacteria on our vags is bad but how do you guys shave? Do you have seperate razors for vag and butthole? How do you even make sure while shaving your labia and stuff that you don't accidentally touch the area that might have butt bacteria?

No. 204274

I wash my butt thoroughly, rinse off the razer frequently and it doesn't go anywhere near my actual vagina. I don't think anything more than that is necessary but I honestly never thought about it… if we were that susceptible to butt bacteria even on a freshly cleaned body surely it couldn't be so close to our vag in the first place, right?

Apparently it's very much recommended to use seperate razors for different parts of your body, there have actually been people on forums telling stories how using the same razor for everything caused some infection because bacteria are almost always there and different parts of your body have and are supposed to have different kinds of bacteria that shouldn't end up in other places. Apparently you even need a seperate razor for your armpits. It sounds dramatic but also makes sense when you think about it.

No. 204361

If you can stomach having your face near a butthole you should stomach some hairs as well.

No. 204364

But anon the bootystar and vag are so close to each other and due to that definitely pretty much have the same skin bacteria, any hygiene issues must be negligible?? The armpit I understand cause they have stinky bacteria that you might not want to transfer, but I bet butt and vag skin transfer bacteria on the daily. I mean as long as you wash your butt it's probably fine, and I hope you do cause shaving a dirty ass would be disgusting

No. 204410

any other anonitas completely loathe their downstairs regions? at this point i wish i had any other body. i've always had a mole on my pelvis, which made me insecure since childhood. i have long and dark labia minora. some days my vulva looked alright to me, so i decided to even check out a few gynecological surveys to convince myself i was 100% normal, but apparently my labia size puts me somewhere in the 95th percentile. i also have chronic hemorrhoids and skin tags from anal fissures (genetically predisposed to both), but since i experience no bleeding or discomfort from either, it's not an urgent medical issue. but it makes me look like my anus has its own fucking set of mini labia. as much as i'm skeptical about the benefits of labiaplasty, i couldn't even afford one if i was really sure. i don't want to get hemorrhoid surgery, because i hear it is extremely painful and doesn't prevent future piles as i am already genetically predisposed. all of this severely undermines my already negligible body confidence. i'm in my 20s and never had sex. since i have an extemely small social circle, i have zero chance of meeting anyone organically, and i assume someone who would like me for my personality wouldn't care so much what my vulva or ass look like. alas, i have to use dating apps to meet someone, but i'm petrified at the thought of having sex with a near stranger. everyone online expects sex at least by third date. i'm scared that i'll hear mean comments or someone will just ghost me after sex because i look so gross. tf do i even do to feel a little bit better? anyone else have this issue?

No. 204417

Dont meet someone if their end goal is just to have sex with you, i always try to get to know a person online first even if it takes a couple of weeks just chatting online, ofc if ur gonna meet some retards that expect sex from you they r gonna be judgemental of ur looks. I was worried about how my genitals look like since i hit puberty, considered labiaplasty etc but i meet my current bf some years ago and seeing how he actually likes how my vulva looks like made me feel better ab myself. People do have preferences on how they would like genitals to look like same with dicks but when ur actually with someone who u love then it really doesnt matter.

today I realized i have 3 labia minora, two symmetrical ones and then one extra on the right side, kek. It's weird bc it starts above my clitoral hood, too. Idk how I never noticed before. Anyway, I was poking around down there w a mirror bc when i was cleaning myself the other day i felt a tiny, hard bump on one of my inner labia and was like wtf. When I googled it, I realized it looked like one lone, tiny (like 1mm) genital "wart" (pearly, shiny, sticks out like a tiny tentacle) but I'm a virgin so I know I don't have any STDs. I just "pinched" it off with my finger nails, surprisingly didn't hurt. Anyway, am I dying?

First of all, what >>204417 said
Next, please don't go for a labiaplasty. My friend who had really long uneven labia had it cut and it still didn't look ideal to her plus it was a bad healing process.

Not all men are horny pigs who expect sex soon so just find the kind of guy you really want and just do it when you're ready.

How good are those things really? It seems only ''older'' women who are more comfortable with their bodies and even already gave birth praise them. Insertion alone sounds dreadful

No. 204472

You have to be pretty comfortable getting up in there. One of the biggest pros is just how much liquid they can hold compared to a pad or tampon though so you shouldn't have to empty it too often.

I used to use tampons and as someone who pees ten times a day I hated trying to keep a string dry or feeling gross when I couldn't keep it dry because of my crazy stream. I think that was weirdly the tipping point for me to switch. If you're sexually active you can receive oral as normal with the cup in. No outside signs that you're even menstruating. Win

No. 204474

I haven't given birth and I think they can be tricky. They can be fine to insert but sometimes you have to really dig around to get them out or get them to unfold, which is annoying to deal with when you're already in a bad mood and bleeding all over the place. When they're in place they're great though, they can handle heavier periods.

No. 204475

>dig around to get them out or get them to unfold, which is annoying to deal with when you're already in a bad mood and bleeding all over the place
Diff anon but this yeah. I've used cups in the past and I'm about to try it again next cycle but I have pads bought as back up for this reason. On a particularly bad month it can send you (or me at least lol) into a rage having to deal with it not popping open the first try. If the first insertion goes wrong and you're crampy and not in the mood it can feel so shit to have to deal with it.

I don't know if I'll ever be a 100 percent cup girl. Having back up products is handy for those days.

No. 204488

Not old and definitely haven't given birth, and I have mixed feelings but mostly positive. If I wasn't so retarded I'd be all about them, but I still can't figure out placement well enough to put mine in and avoid (minimal but still annoying) spotting 100% of the time. Despite that it's awesome sticking it in in the morning and not having to change anything all day, plus they feel "cleaner" than pads and even tampons to me. I have a heavy flow and the cup I use isn't even full by evening. Don't feel it once it's inside, and insertion isn't too bad but it is annoying getting it out sometimes/breaking suction and I've definitely had to stick my fingers up in places I normally wouldn't. I wouldn't say it's ever caused pain, but time and discomfort, yes. If you have the patience to learn to use them properly they're great

No. 204489

Everyone says they last longer than tampons but I swear I have to change my cup more often than I do with a largest size tampon

I'm also self conscious about the way I look down there, I wouldn't call it loathing but there is a lot I dislike about it. my labia is longer and I've worried about the way it 'hangs down', I have bad days where I wish it were different but I'm learning to love it. I'm also like you and have a bit of a hemorrhoid issue. I hate it and wish I could fix it but I don't think I can.

>i'm petrified at the thought of having sex with a near stranger. everyone online expects sex at least by third date

I would be too, please don't have sex with someone you'd still consider a stranger, at very least not for your first time. I met someone on a dating site earlier in the year and I've seen him a bunch of times and we've not slept together yet. I'm a virgin like you and I explained that to him and he's been great about it and willing to wait. if a guy expects sex by the third date and would dump you if you didn't put out then he wasn't worth your time anyway! if he's a decent enough guy to wait then like you said he probably wouldn't care about what you look like down after getting to know you for who you are. all vagina feels the same too, a strong dislike with how your labia look would probably indicate pornsickness. what your anus looks like also shouldn't factor much either for a none pornsick guy. that kind of thing would indicate to me he was interested in anal which is once again pornsickness. if that were the case then kick him too the curb. guys like that aren't worth the time or effort. you'll find someone anon!

anons, i had sex for the first time at the age of 21 with a bf i had for 1 year. and i dont understand one thing.
we had ots of problems with penetration, he couldnt get in the first maybe 8 times we tried it. after that he could but despite it aching and hurting A LOT when he did a suddent movement… it just didnt feel like anything?
idk like it didnt feel like something was in me at all, like i imagined i would feel being "filed" (gross term, sorry).

is sex supposed to feel this indifferent? i enjoyed dry humping way more than penetration even when it wasnt near my clit. fyi, he was also a virgin so it might just be inexperience.
i also have problems with dryness and my bf is apparently above average in terms of size (16 cm). i think it wasnt enjoyable to him either cuz he didnt cum but told me it was because he was really excited. idk if i believe that.

1) is sex overrated and doesnt feel like anything except discomfort?
2) do you feel like something is in you when you are being penetrated? or do you not feel it.

No. 205296

Can't help you with the sex part since I'm a virgin who's used toys for years but it does sound like:
You weren't turned on enough for your vagina to open up, you needed more water based lube if you can't become wet naturally, maybe your hymen didn't actually stretch open fully the first time, and I hate to tell you 16cm is average 18-22 would be large. Many anons have said they get off more from their clit or foreplay which is why straight penetration doesn't do much. To me penetration doesn't do anything if I'm not turned on and did something else outside of it. I know there's some rare disorder where penetration is painful no matter what which you could look into.

No. 205299

Nope, that's normal. Penetration is meh for most women, and now even guys don't get much pleasure from it because they are death gripping themselves. I think what's considered "foreplay" or "petting" is way better than actual penetrative sex, both physically and emotionally. Also 16 cm is above average, average is around 13 cm.

No. 205300

>my bf is apparently above average in terms of size (16 cm)
this line killed me, bless your heart nona, the scrote is lying. about your situation are you sure it actually went in? your bf sounds retarded so he might've been rubbing his dick on your labia thinking he's in, if you're very wet also both gets mixed up from the woman's perspective and you can mistake it for having it inside you, been there done that. unless you felt it with your hands and watched it enter, it literally might not have gone in. penetration is rarely enjoyable and orgasmic but regardless it should feel like something its not normal to not feel anything unless he has a pencil dick which i'm not experienced with, how girthy was it?

No. 205325

Hey anon. Im pretty sure it went in, i actually checked it w my hand too.
I would say he's average in girth too but i honestly have no understamding of dick sizes. I thought i didnt feel smt "inside" because i was too focused on how painful the opening felt. Also when you say "your bf is lying", do you mean hes lying about what the average is?
Thank you both. I heard a lot that penetrative sex is "meh". I tricked myself into thinking it would be good i guess. Also to first anon, we did use a lot of lube because without it, it was very bad. Thank you for both of your perspectives. I guess i'll just ask to focus more on oral next times.
Still cant believe that sex feels worse than literally just humping a pillow.

Have you never used a toy on yourself before? It might be worth it to do so to have something to compare to in a less stressful situation where you can just focus on yourself.

Nonas I think I want to get my implant removed but I don't know if I'm just being a little bitch or not. I got it back in May and for the past month I've been super dry to the point of discomfort and irritation, interrupted by spells of hot inflammation which is terrible on it's own. Had a recent check-up that came back clean, so I assume it's not an STD.

Honestly I'm so tired of BC in general. I don't have a BF, I'm stuck living with my parents for work so I'm not getting any on the side, and I'm here for another year at least so I just kind of want to get back on the pill or just give my body a break.

Any advice? If an implant is giving me trouble now after only fiveish months, what are the realistic chances it'll calm down for the rest of the fie years? If you've been in a similar situation, what did you do to relieve the discomfort? If you were me, would you get it removed? Keep in mind it's free in my country for my age bracket.

I checked my period tracking app and nvm, these past few months it happened more and more often and not during ovulation. I booked an appointment at the doctor for next week and will see what she'll tell me. She's my GP but she could recommend me gynecologists if there's something suspicious going on.

please help
I noticed that since a month or two my vagina has been even more odorous than usual. It also got "dirtier" (white things that I wash away in the shower) much quicker and more frequently. Today also I notice I had extremely thick and white goo. I thought first I maybe was irritated from being waxed for the summer, but the hairs have grown back and the symptoms haven't changed. I have also been sexually active (eating out) and I did have a penis rub against me (lol) but never penetrated. Should I be concerned??

No. 206780

It sounds like you have a yeast infection, the white flecks and discharge are pretty classic symptoms. A yeast infection kit from the drug store will probably clear it up if that's the case.

No. 206783

I don't know what the circumstances are around your recent sexy time but thrush can spread from sexual contact so you might both need thrush treatment if you're still sleeping together and you want to prevent re-infection. You can get stuck in a cycle of reinfection sometimes if you only treat yourself and not your partner. Given you've had this for 2 months now he might want to use cream too if you'd any signs around the time you were intimate.

Glad you're seeing your doc soon. This is the type of rando bleeding where they say not to ignore it. If you can't link it to ovulation then I think you're right to get it seen to.

I've had yeast infections twice and both times it was from taking antibiotics and it hit me real quick. I needed treatment and I needed it from day one of noticing symptoms. Was going nuts and couldn't sit still with the itch lol. Where I live there's this constant ad that's on TV for thrush cream so I knew what to ask for. Good times.

Diff anon but given you've had this for one or two months already and there's been some sort of sexual activity too.. I would think it's reasonable to see a doc at this stage to get tested.

White clumpy discharge is typical of thrush but I don't know if I've ever had a smell accompany it. Smell could be caused by any other type of infection too.

Okay nonnas I am gonna get my pussy ate for the first time tomorrow. I'm kind of worried about first impressions so if anyone has tips for me regarding keeping it smelling nice and tasting good (other than the basic hygiene), or avoiding certain things that could make it smell/taste bad that would be great. On a more serious note I'm also anxious because I don't think my vagina looks especially nice. I have a bumpy labia minora, I think they're called fordyce spots or something. Basically clusters of small skin toned bumps that you can see when you stretch the lips. I'm a virgin and no one has ever touched me there so it can't be an std, and I've had them for as long as I remember looking down there, but it doesn't really look so good… Do any anons here have the same issue and did your partners ever comment on it? And did you manage to ever get rid of them by chance? I know I've asked a lot of questions but I've never been intimate with anyone and I've got a lot on my mind

No. 206867

1. drink plenty of water. this is important for literally every chemical process in your body, but if you're dehydrated you'll taste saltier than usual. also you'll probably lose water sweating, crying, and thoroughly enjoying yourself
2. do not strive for your pussy to smell or taste like anything other than what is. it's really not feasible and frankly unhealthy. luckily pussy smells and tastes DELECTABLE so you'll be fine
3. nobody is going to nitpick your vagina! nobody worth having sex with, anyway. i doubt the other person will notice, much less comment on it. t. recent virgin who also has strange bumps diwn there
4. relax and enjoy it. dont worry about what you look like or your partner judging you. stay in the present and lean into the sensations. don't be afraid to let them know which motions and spots feel the best

I'm ready to be made fun of, but here I go:

I've noticed that I am becoming less sensitive in my clitorus. It isn't numb, it's just not really as sensitive as it used to be. I do have a vibrator that I use maybe every 2 or 3 days, has it damaged the nerves in my clitorus? If I just stop using it, will my sensitivity return? I don't want to (for lack of a better word) "break" my clitorus

No. 206946

Some people will say you can't lose sensitivity from vibrators but ime you kinda can and can benefit from taking a break from them for a while here and there. I used to use them alot. I had a job where I had to (not sex work, I just wrote about products) Once I was out of that job I put my whole collection away and trained myself to be able to get off manually again. I've rarely returned to using them again.

We do get into habits sometimes that make it hard to get off in any other ways, and going too high on toy settings can make that even worse. I'd try taking a break and using your hands for a while. Might take time. You can then go back to vibes and just try to use lower settings. Use them in moderation, switch between hands only sessions and toy sessions so as not to get into a set rut.

If you are on any new birth control or psych meds that could also play a role in sensitivity but you didn't mention either.

Just call your GP's practice (likely still the one you went to as a child if you didn't sign up for a different one when you moved) or whatever it's called in your country.

No. 207113

No, I was confused for a while about a lot of women saying it was the most stimulating position when I felt the least doing it. That is until I changed up the angle of penetration. It might seem obvious but have you leaned forward at 45 degrees and just tried grinding your clit against his pelvis/hip area? I don't really bother with in and out when I'm on top (unless I already orgasmed and want to get the guy off). That feels best to me and definitely offers more clit stimulation than any other position, but when I was just bouncing up and down at 90 degrees I felt nothing. I feel it's definitely a clit and not a g spot kind of position. Reverse cowgirl feels decent in terms of penetration since it's at a more severe angle but you have to be careful of breaking dudes' dicks when you get going faster. Such delicate flowers

No. 207148

Missionary does very little for me (apart from the cuddling aspect lol) Any position where he's entering from behind works well. And I hate being on top too which kinda limits options.

Okay anons, I have an embarrassing question. So basically I like to masturbate in the shower in the morning. It's relaxing and energizing at the same time. The only thing is - my vagina still secretes for a few hours after, even though I wash and dry carefully, of course. I typically wear panty liners for this reason. My question is, can anyone nearby smell my vaginal lubrication? I have always been so paranoid about this, and I don't know if there's a scent that I just can't detect because I'm used to it.

What worked for me was to masturbate to orgasm with clit stimulation first, then try a finger.
Orgasming first really helps to loosen up and lubricate. Only put in as much of the finger as makes you comfortable, and try again next time.
You might feel discouraged or frustrated, but it's a gradual process so don't be hard on yourself.

Good luck nonnie

No. 209662

I used these from 18-21. I only stopped because it was getting tricky in public & I got diagnosed with endometriosis (explained my very heavy bleeding). When I was using them I was a virgin (no toys or anything either), but had gotten used to tampons. I mention this purely for reference - you don't need to be older or "experienced" to use a cup. I didn't have an issue inserting it, but it took practice. I practiced when I was ovulating, because there's more natural lubrication then.

You need to find the right size and get used to inserting it, that's all. The ones in your pic look rigid but I assume that cup design has only improved since I last used one, so it's probably just the pic. Unfortunately I forgot the name of the one I bought, I bought it off the shelf (by tampons and stuff) and chose the small size, I tthink. It was completely clear. I didn't have any issues with it getting stained. Boiled it once a day to sterilize, etc. (used a pad at night).

Hey ladies, writing this late at night while in pain, I thought I'd gotten thrush or something earlier today but upon feeling around between my labia and where the very inside connects I've suddenly got a painful pea sized lump.

Farmers I'm cringing a bit and I need to let it out and feel more normal:

I had a vaginal examination today just to check a cyst that had been infected recently that has now almost subsided but I have a little bump somewhere in my vulva that turns out is harmless. However, outside of my smear last year it was the only time someone's ever examined me and I had mild gay panic.

I had a really comforting doctor who was chill and she's probably seen it all before but I was an apologetic mess because I hadn't shaved through lockdown and I've come off my peroid so I've been a bit hormonal on and off since and I'd been running around at work all day. When she was trying to get my legs to open more, I'd panic and worry I was going to queef or do something embarassing so I was probably really awkward. I was worried she would think I was a pervert for flinching a lot because I bluntly said "sorry, I'm a bit sensitive and self concious" and I'd not had to do this before but she remained patient and kind. Is it normal for gynos and doctors to get people like me who get shaky and nervous? I feel so bad.

first time i put in a tampon and i think the top bit got stuck and tore off and its still inside me??? has this ever happened to anyone before? will it give me toxic shock syndrome? will it come out by itself? i wore it for an hour on a heavy flow day and it was kinda stuck inside me. i had to really pry it out and tug it really hard by the string. it kinda hurt because i was pretty dry. only the top bit absorbed blood. but when i pulled it out, it kinda unfurled into a flattened rectangle shape… did it unfurl in my vagina? arent tampons supposed to be cylinder-like and retain that shape? the top bit looked torn with a lot of loose tampon fiber. like the top part was no longer round but a bit frayed at the edges, which makes me suspect that i have the top portion still in my vagina. idk though because i cant feel the inside of my vagina.

No. 213852

i dont know if it couldve gotten stuck up there but tampons do unfurl after they go in and as it soaks up blood it expands in size. If a piece got stuck up there it should eventually fall out with your flow. Dont worry about toxic shock since its not an entire tampon.

Apparently it's called the 'pubic symphysis' It's like a cartilage joint between the bones. Comes in handy during childbirth.

I got no education on that stuff as a kid/teen and the first time I ever felt my insides I thought I was poking my pelvic bone and it fucked me up seeing as I was expecting something very different. When you're placing a tampon in you kind of tuck it behind that hard curve so I was always squeamish at the thought of it just being bone that you poke around. It was only lately that I learnt it's not even that. It's a disc of cartilage.

No. 214045

Thanks for asking this question, I've also felt this and been wondering for a while. Is it possible that depending on the placement of the cartilage it can make it penetration uncomfortable?

So I’m at a loss nonnies, but after a day of sport my underwear smells like onions. Very strong. And I don’t know if it’s from sweat glands in my groin because my vagina itself doesn’t seem to have that smell and no weird discharge. It’s only after sport.

It can be normal, sometimes women have "functional/follicular cysts" and these rupture during ovulation, causing some mild symptoms.

TaylorR had one of these and decided to preach doom and gloom (iii have cyyysts - nah, you had one unlucky cyst, sis) since hers was one of the exceedingly rare ones that caused a complication.

Mine is the same and it's dark as hell despite me being extremely pale. Whatever. I just think to myself, if I was a lesbian and my gf had a similarly unaesthetic pussy, would I still eat it? And the answer is yes, I would because I'd love her and want to make her feel good. I don't even like women but can still think in that way. If a man can't even do that he is useless.

Same, mine are way longer than any of those collages that are supposed to make you feel like oh mine is normal. Obviously not because no one has a picture like mine kek. I’ve thought about getting surgery for it but ultimately it doesn’t hurt/impact my life and every partner I’ve had doesn’t give a fuck at all, it’s not like a partner is gonna say oh gross you don’t have a flat slit pussy I’m not going to have sex with you. If they do that’s a red flag and you can leave.

I've never had a period leave my cycle, and I've been all of the above at some point. Every girl I know who got the vaccine (granted that's only 3 people) had their period change after. They're already trying to claim its because women are just "anxious", don't contribute to that

How normal are irregular periods? I haven't had my period in months. That is pretty normal for me. They sometimes but not often come consecutively from month to month. My first period was 13 and i'm now 24. I don't want to be put on birth control to "regulate" though so I've been iffy on telling my ob

No. 216264

Irregular periods are really common. I'd recommend going to your OB for a full check up to make sure it isn't caused by a medical issue. It could be due to a lot of stress in your life or your dietary habits as well, but it's good to rule out the serious stuff. You can also refuse birth control if they try to prescribe it to you. If it's not caused by anything severe and the irregularity doesn't bother you, there's no need to worry about it or take any medication.

Basically, I only suspect I have a UTI. A little over a week ago I had a very short term infection, lasting I think one day. 2 months before that was my first ever UTI, I didnt take antibiotics. I've taken D mannose and cranberry pills since that short term infection, and felt absolutely no symptoms. I skipped a dose saturday and sunday evening and now I feel a little itchy, and feel like I need to pee but only a little comes out, so I'm guessing there's still something there.

Question is, should I keep taking just the D mannose for idk, another week to see if I fight it off or come off it to see if it IS actually a UTI and maybe et antibiotics because maybe I'm doing myself longer term damage by having an infection even if there are no symptoms.

No. 216285

If you're still concerned there's a lingering infection, I'd definitely recommend seeing a doctor for testing and to get some antibiotics. You don't want to end up in the hospital with a kidney infection. I have had some clear up on their own but it's worth getting checked out just in case.

No. 216286

Both of these guys weren't the absolute gentlemen either, they were sometimes acting like dicks, very average people.

Does anyone else struggle with this? I can get off with external stim every day for years and be fine but if anything dares to go inside me I will suffer for it.

No. 216698

Could be your lube that's causing them, or otherwise it's a hygenic issue. Some women are more prone to UTIs than others based on their anatomy down there. Try to avoid getting any lube or secretions near your urethra. The easiest way to ensure this is if you are laying on your back, so that gravity moves extra lube, anal leakage and vaginal mucus away from your urethra rather than towards it. Also drink plenty of water beforehand so you can have a good pee afterwards to help flush out anything that may have made its way into your urethra.

No. 216705

NTA, why would someones butt leak omg

No. 216710

Well leakage may have been the wrong word. When you have sex or masturbate with penetration, some vaginal fluids will unavoidably make their way out of your vagina. These fluids often come in contact with your anus and gather anal bacteria no matter what position you are in due to the anus and vagina being fairly close neighbors. If you are face down being fingered or upright as in riding a dildo or dong, the fluids containing those anal bacteria are more likely to flow forward at some point and can enter your urethra. Anal bacteria is the most common cause of UTIs.

My body definitely dried up after taking it for a year, but if i was to have any complication i would feel something, right? A hole wouldnt just appear out of nowhere with no pain or infection right?

This is a general, dumb question, but I was wondering what do gynaecologists do when they find that an underage kid has vaginismus? Do they tell the kid/their parents? Do they encourage them to treat vaginismus?

idk. I heard of families in the USA sending 13-year-old girls to gynaecologists and stuff, and some medical websites say girls should go see a obgyn between 13-15, even though I first saw a gynaecologist later in life, so I assumed that sort of a situation would inevitably come up

No. 217247

Samefag I am still bleeding and it's even heavier now. I can't see a doctor right away. Has this happened to anyone?

No. 217250

It makes sense for a girl around her 13-15’s to go to a gynecologist if she tells her mom that she feels like something isn’t right.
Like, I’m an hypochondriac idiot, and when I went with my mom to her yearly appointment at the gynecologist because I didn’t want to be home alone, I asked the gynecologist if my breasts were okay because I thought they were lumpy.
The thing is that if a girl at that age says that she has vaginismus or something like that, well, it will depend on how her parents could deal with it.
I particularly would be worried for obvious reasons, but then again, if you’re used to using tampons, not pads, and your kid wants to imitate you but the tampons don’t work for her, then I guess it makes sense if the kid is worried, and then she gets diagnosed with vaginismus.
Not everything is about sex, I think, maybe I’m being naïve.

I've tried looking it up, but everything that comes up is about dots in the labia or similar.

Vaginismus isn't just about sex anon. They do inform them, because certain period care options are off the table. Not to mention vaginismus can make an exam difficult.
Girls are getting their periods much earlier than in the past, and generally everyone should go to a gyno for annual check ups at the very least. My mom took me as soon as I got my period and it helped me get used to seeing an obgyn regularly. The sooner the better really.

>i don't have any trauma or anything.
>i get panic symptoms and start crying straight away
You should probably try therapy. Vaginismus is 99% psychological. You have to realize that much of the population have gotten dicked/dildo'd without issue for thousands of years and that fat ass babies come out of there. Relaxing, and being stubborn and determined about it, maybe with the help of alcohol or other drugs, would be my best advice. As someone who have dealt with this for months when I first started to try penetration, it's really just persistence and going for it. You are not going to break, vaginas are very resilient, I promise.

Anyone else starting to feel like 'getting over vaginismus' is a bit of an example of patriarchy/female socialisation, if you can masturbate, and especially if it's just secondary vaginismus? I know this is a bit of a stretch, but considering I'm partially PIV-critical, but I feel like doing something uncomfortable just so you can do something that you can have 'real sex' ,even you're statically unlikely to orgasm during sex (I'm critical about viewing PIV sex as 'real sex', even though women are less likely to orgasm from it). I'm starting to agree with >>208277

Especially since it obgyns are literally encouraging women to drug themselves so that they can experience maturbation/sex the 'right' way'

I know vaginismus makes using tampons and divacups impossible but I doubt that the sole reason why women who spend months, even years, trying to dilate and do something that makes them uncomfortable is solely for the sake of using divacups, which they may not like using

I don't have actual vaginismus but I'm in my thirties and can still only comfortably manage toys that are aimed at beginners. I can use a tampon and get a smear test done ok but I was still looking into those dilator sets lately. I feel ready to date for the first time in years and I was remembering how I much this was an issue in past relationships. I hate navigating this. Past experiences haven't been good.

Thing is I can take an average dick, it just doesn't feel good on my end.. so you can imagine what ended up happening in my past relationships given I was 'capable' of taking it. Even if you can take it, there's the issue of it not feeling right and men not caring that only one of you is feeling good. I do worry that the road to 'vaginismus recovery' often seems to end up where I'm already at. The abiity to take it and the ability to enjoy it are two seperate things.

I pull back the hood to expose the glans outwards and like theres a slit in the center. Its slightly open in a way? Not like a hole, but more like a tiny separation that can be pulled.

I think that's just where the labia minora joins together to form the glans, and the white is just everyday sweat and discharge that's made its way under your hood. Like smegma but not putrid

No. 219146

The clit is homologous to the glans of the penis, so the 'slit' is probably just a dimple where your urethra would have been. It's like having a third nipple, harmless. The smeg and stuff is normal too. If you went through puberty fine and you have normal periods you're probably not intersex lol. Go to a doctor if you're worried about infertility.

When I was in the shower I noticed a cut near my clitoris. It took me aback somewhat, but reminded me of the time a guy had made me orgasm intensely by rubbing my clitoris directly on the skin, when I had only been used to masturbating over my underwear. Later that day I noticed blood in my underwear, but it wasn't from my period, so I didn't have a clue where it could have come from. The night before last I masturbated intensely and rubbed my skin directly. I again felt really nice after but now in the shower I notice this. It has lead me to think that I still am too sensitive to be rubbed directly onto the skin, or that my skin was too dry. I however don't like it when my vagina is too wet externally since it doesn't let me feel the friction of rubbing as much. Does anybody else have experience with this? Any tips or advice? Will I ever be able to be satisfied by having my clitoris rubbed without wearing underwear? Will I always have cuts? Another thing I noticed just now is that my labia and clitoris are a blueish purple. I assume this is because I had been very cold and fatigued the past two days, so my entire body was a bit underheated. What do you guys think?

No. 219385

Having sex with someone who you trust and is patient enough to give you the space to relax. I had this issue and then it disappeared to the point I don't even feel it slipping in anymore. I am sometimes still shocked. I got over it by allowing myself to relax and be present in the moment. I focused on my breathing and only tried angles/positions that worked. When I wasn't in the mood for PIV, I said I wanted to stop and then we just cuddled or he touched me otherwise. The thing with vaginismus is that it is often caused by fear/trauma of some sort. The fear that it will hurt, the memory of it hurting (either from sex or even just a tampon. I remember sobbing terribly each time I still couldn't get a tampon in, because I felt broken and wrong. I was so scared I wouldn't be able to have sex, and I carried this fear with me, which made me close up and indeed struggle with penetration), the fear that you're not good enough to be having sex, the fear that it's going to go wrong, or the very valid thought that you actually aren't ready yet for sex at all. It's important to address these things and allow yourself to heal from them or challenge them by trying to relax and counter these feelings with positive expectations. Another thing that helped me was being fingered first. It let me relax a lot and showed me that penetration doesn't have to hurt. I also explored my body a lot with my boyfriend. I explored how certain positions hurt more or less than others and sought to understand why. I discussed this with him and this communication as well as knowledge really gave me confidence as well as a sense of control. It indicated to myself that I knew my body and had nothing to be worried about. My partner is also really respectful, patient and understanding, so I always feel in control around him. I'm not afraid of him and feel safe. That is extremely important, otherwise you won't relax (and you shouldn't! If you feel unsafe, there is probably a good reason for it and you deserve to explore it!)

I feel like spending an hour trying can be the worst thing for it, it builds tension if it already hurt you and then you keep on trying for that long of a session.

Something alot of women overlook is, you have the option to try out small toys and explore penetration on your own too. You don't have to hand over 'first big entry' to a partner. It can take alot of the nerves (and pain) out of first time sex if you've tried a small toy or two before.

When I was younger I found out I had a hell of a tough hymen and I ended up spending a few weeks with beginners toys working at my own pace before doing anything penetrative with another person. I wanted to do it myself because I was in hella pain even by myself going slowly, I didn't want my first time to be a guy hurting me no matter how hard he tried not to. Hymens vary in shape and toughness so people have different experiences with that hurdle. Recently people have started saying that your first time should never hurt if the guy does it right but that's not true across the board. Anatomy wise it's not the same for everyone. If you have ongoing issues with pain you can always take control and explore this on your own first. Or use a small toy together, use it as a stepping stone up to taking his size.

The first couple of days really sucked though, I had to clean the area with betadine and for some reason that made me really lightheaded and I almost passed out sometimes. Also I think the pain meds were pretty strong because the first couple of days of recovery are a blur. I stopped taking them after 3-4 days but didn't get a lot of pain after that.

I think I have a yeast infection. I’ve been smelling like an abandoned beer factory, it’s a very sharp smell as well as being very strong. I know my smell, and this is honestly too sharp and strong for what I usually smell like on a bad day. I also notice that my panty liners usually look like I leaked a yellow or green highlighter in them, consistently. I just question if it’s a yeast infection because I’m not itchy or anything. The symptoms for yeast infections really confuse me anyways and always seem different.

For context it’s been like this for a while now, for like a couple months (I’ve just been ignoring it since the only thing off is the smell and discharge color). I did notice that this happened after my eczema started to develop underneath my butt, around my crotch, and my inner thigh (you know anywhere where the skin moves a lot). I had to put cream there, and I’m assuming the cream traveled up. I use cerave, and I only used it a few times because I was scared it would get into my vagina as I moved around. Now the eczema there is kinda gone, but it still itches everyday so I assume this still plays a role. I also wear panty liners often, I don’t know if this also plays a role. What should I do?

No. 221695

Strong smell, yellow/green discharge, and no itching is fairly unusual for a yeast infection so it might be something else (though symptoms for these sort of things can be pretty variable). If you're uncertain it might be worth getting one of those screening tests that can help distinguish between a yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis, since they often present similar symptoms but treatments are different (and mistakenly using yeast infection treatment when you have a BV can feel like hell). Or if you want to play it extra safe you could just go to the doctor to be certain.

No. 221696

Late, but Tend Skin (in the blue bottle) works great for ingrown hairs. I use it only on the upper part of my pubic area. Obviously don’t put it directly on your labia or anything, but on the top of the mons pubis or your inner leg is fine. It’s helped reduce my ingrowns a lot.

No. 221857

Thank you, I didn’t know there were screening tests. I didn’t think about BV, but when I looked into it I’m not really sold. But I could be wrong. I had a revelation yesterday when I smelled where my eczema is worst, like behind my knees and in my elbows, and it smelled just like my vagina. Not as beer-ery, but it definitely had the same undertone I really don’t know what this means, but I suspect I have a fungal infection on top of my eczema (I noticed I have signs of both). It could be candida overgrowth, since that kind of fungus can cause rashes on the skin and can cause yeast infections. But I’m kinda talking out of my ass, I’m not really sure what my problem is.

Hello pussy scrubber. That could be just dead skin you are scraping away.

That takes me back. I used to have a really bad habit of this, everytime i would go to the bathroom i would do this methodically just because it was satisfying. I would actually grow out my pinky nails the most just for this purpose. Don’t worry, I’d clean my nails well after kek. Anyways my point kinda is that i would do this everytime i would go to bathroom, and there would usually always be some, so it is inevitable and no scrubbing in the shower will prevent anything since its just buildup that occurs often. I can see you think its a result of being dirty but its not. Of course i agree with all the other anons, get rid of the loofah, and just switch to freshening up with a damp tp in the bathroom if it bothers you. It’s not like its lime scale.

I'm having some weird pain between my lower inner and outer labia right next to the vaginal opening, almost feels like a scrape on the skin & it hurts on the surface to wipe or separate the labia. I shave down there but have taken a break bc of this. I took a look briefly but other than looking a little red I don't see anything.

I wondered if maybe sleeping in yoga pants (I've been cold) caused this, so for two nights I've gone without. It still hurts. I haven't had sex in months.

It's probably just irritated, but you might have some type of infection. There's over the counter kits you can get to test for yeast or BV. Soap is far too alkaline to put anywhere near your vulva. You need a wash that's lower in pH that supports the tissue and bacteria that are supposed to be there, otherwise it becomes a breeding ground for other bacteria and potentially even yeast. Avoid a lot of brands that say pH balanced, because they're usually just going for the pH of the skin, not vulva. Honeypot has unscented washes that are more in the realm of safe and it shouldn't irritate things more.

No. 222755

Just rule out an infection. If it's just smegma, wipe it away gently each time. Wipe from front to back and keep good hand hygeine with anything you put anywhere near there. It's a buildup of oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. That's possibly going to include E. coli if your wipe technique is shit (heh) or because of the cooch to butthole distance there. Scraping it is going to leave microabrasions though, and your fingernails are probably not as clean as you want to think when you're doing that. Your period lowers pH there and makes the lactic acid from your vag slightly less hard hitting though. If you're using pads, switch to a reusable disc for days when it isn't a gore river.

So, I used to be quite wet when I was younger - I remember once when me an ex were having sex he had to actually change his shirt because I made it too wet from missionary. But when I started the pill at 20 y/o for my PCOS it all went to shit and I became the exact opposite. I changed my birth control method and I haven't taken the pill in like 5+ years but I have not gone back to my original wetness.
Even when masturbating and reaching climax I am still too dry to even put fingers, sometimes. And I fucking hate it so much, sometimes my fiance will even get a bit softer thinking that I am not aroused enough and he doesn't want to hurt me, obviously.

Moderately embarrassing but I need some advice. I’ve always used tampons when on my period but I had to switch to pads bc I pee myself without even feeling it when using tampons. PIV sex is fine, no pee, no peeing myself otherwise, only with a tampon in. I tried using a cup once, did one practice round and it was okay, and when I tried while on my period the suction didn’t work right so I leaked before I even had the chance to pee myself. I don’t currently have insurance but when I did I went to a pelvic floor therapist for something else and mentioned it, and the therapist just said “yea that can happen”. I wanna go back to using tampons but I don’t know what to do. Anyone experience something similar?

hard agree. there are issues that can arise regardless of whether you have sex or not. It's pretty bizarre that you have a doctor so averse to "checking inside" even once. If you had to see a gyn for any medical issue, the standard procedure is to do an examination. A pap smear is quick and hurts about as much as a covid test. The rest of the exam is more or less painless unless you have certain problems (like endometriosis nodules or something)

No. 224366

You just need the yearly, not necessarily a pap. They still do pelvic exams to check for abnormalities like fibroids and a breast check.

thanks for the replies, nonnies. i'm gonna look into finding a new gyno, i think, once i start my new job. or maybe just go to my regular gyno and demand a proper check up, since finding a gyno is so difficult here. i never had a proper check up either, because my mom kinda neglected my health growing up and i only broke free like 3 years ago.

They don't recommend it yearly anymore, they changed it to every 3 years. Honestly paps are so unreliable I don't get them at all, there is a huge margin of error and can give false results and cervical cancer is rare. Some countries perform HPV blood or cervical swab tests instead of pap exams for improved accuracy or they only perform a pap with a clear reason.

In my experience it's mostly just uncomfortable. Vast majority of nurses are pros at getting you in and out as fast as they can so you're not lying there with your vag on show getting even more and more anxious. Mine have just felt like pressure and a scrape.
That being said I did have a nurse once who couldn't get my cervix open and had to go get a doctor to help. Fucking annoying

I have an ugly ass vulva. Long lips,very big clit hood, bit of a grey colour when I'm not aroused.

And not one man has commented negatively it. And I've been with guys who have commented negatively on every other body part, but my sloppy ass pussy has never been targeted. I have guys telling me to rub my pussy all over their faces. Told a guy I wanted labiaplasty and he hold me he would break up with me if I did it.

I wanted labiaplasty since I was 12, and it took me 10 years to accept myself, but now I'm so happy I didn't get one when I turned 18.

This is nice to hear, I’ve always been insecure about it to the point I was very apprehensive about sex and thought that they’d have to hide their true feelings of disgust since it’s obviously not normal in terms of the average expectation. Insecurity does not lead to having a good time during sex so only recently have I been confident in my body to actually experience pleasure without inhibition. Life changing

i got a pimple thing right at the spot of my leg where my leg joins my pelvis so my underwear constantly rubs against it to the point that it’s turned into an open sore that can’t really heal. because i’m staying home this weekend i’ve tried not wearing underwear to give it a chance to form a hard scab but i hate the feeling of discharge (i get a lot of it) not getting “caught” by my underwear. anyway tomorrow i have work so i’ll have to wear underwear again… i just wish this sore would heal

Right after getting out of the shower, make sure you don't put any moisturizers in that spot.

This is day 15 of my period. The last cycle I had my period lasted 22 days. I already have the implant–what can I even do to make it less? Before getting the implant I would have a 7 day period every 10-14 days so I don't want to take it out and return to that either. I talked to a gynecologist and I apparently have a disease where you have too much endometrial lining inside the uterus (not endometriosis). My life feels hopeless. I spend so much money on pads and can't wear anything other than black pants and underwear because on top of being abhorrently long my period is also extremely heavy (and painful). On top of that wearing a pad for 75% of my life means that I'm always getting pad rashes and the skin on my vulva gets raw and falls off. I just don't know how to keep living like this. Every cycle my period just seems to get longer.

Can you talk to your gyno about getting on a birth control method that will halt your periods altogether? Barring that, your condition seems dire enough to possibly warrant a hysterectomy.

No. 226129

The implant was supposed to stop my period but it didn’t help me that much. At least now I’m not going through 7 pads a day but it’s still really awful. It’s day 16 of nonstop bleeding with no end in sight now. I don’t want to have a hysterectomy because I wanted to have kids one day once I’m financially stable enough to give them a good life. I don’t know what else is reversible and can stop this that won’t put me into some kind of dangerous hormone overdose range… It feels really hopeless. On top of that I had an ovarian cyst a few months ago that exploded inside my body and made all my symptoms since then worse—but according to the ER, nothing they can do since the rest of my ovarian tissue is “healthy”. I’m terrified it will happen to me again and it’ll just keep getting worse. Hormonal birth control is supposed to stop cysts from forming by suppressing ovulation but it didn’t stop it from happening last time either. Despite everything I’m still glad I was born a woman… but it’s so hard sometimes

I don’t have PCOS, just one incidental cyst on my ovary that already came and went, and unfortunately I am verging on underweight so I can’t lose weight safely without turning into some kind of spoopy scary skeleton. What I have is picrel: adenomyosis.

Nonnies, I got a period twice during the last month. First was on 8th of Dec and 2nd one on 24th of December, I assume that was because of the stress during exams ( I spent 3 days not sleeping, studying instead). The problem is that ever since I haven't gotten any periods this year. All of my pregnancy tests show negative. It's been three days since my supposed periods should have arrived…Should I go to gyno?

The weird thing that I wanted to mention that during October I caught a small flu for the first time in 3 years, on top of that I had to go throughout stress and take care of my family, so I also ended up getting periods twice. Doctor prescribed me medicine against it but the medicine itself ended up making me pass out. It's all…tough…

My gyno is a man and he is a really strange one, always trying to shill me a birth control for no reason during each visit and generally feels annoyed, so I am just trying to be careful whenever I visit him… A grumpy old man. But that's also me being an anxious mess.

Anon I also had rough sex and am bleeding too. How long did you bleed for and how much? I’m on day three right now and it’s on/off spotting. It’s really scary because I’m not supposed to be bleeding according to my birth control calendar, and I really hope it isn’t implantation bleeding. Would suck cuz I’m so vigilant with taking my pill everyday around roughly the same hour

I can assure you it's not implementation bleeding because these occur about 2 weeks after egg gets fertilized. It's not uncommon to bleed after rough sex, but if it lasts for too long - I suppose longer than 3 days? - be sure to visit a gyno

how the frick do you ladies deal with getting smears or having your vagina inspected by a gyno? The entire thing terrifies me, I'm 24 and haven't been yet but I live in the UK so yearly checkup aren't a thing here.

I have vaginismus and when I'm faced with a vulnerable situation like that I clench up and my brain just associates it with being attacked. I genuinely can't think of anything worse than having my legs up and exposing it to a speculum and medical tools. I don't really know how to get over this as most women I know (who dont even have vaginismus lol) tell me to stop being a wimp about it.

No. 228163

You don't have to do a pap smear unless you're sexually active and being penetrated. It's hard to tell if you've ever been to the gyno at all, but they don't do anything crazy or painful without your permission. That said if you really have vaginismus you should definitely get that checked out. There may be noninvasive procedures that can help you.

No. 228168

>You don't have to do a pap smear unless you're sexually active and being penetrated.
Please don't mislead >>228156 , it's highly recommended to do pap smears regardless of sexual activity as it's important for cancer prevention and while cervical cancer can be caused by HPV which is sexually transmitted, this is not the only way it can happen. Not being active I'm sure it will be fine to not do it as often as every year, but still should be done.
OP, I think if you tell your gyno about your problems and being stressed, unless they're a total prick they'll make sure to be gentle with you and explain the process well to make you feel more comfortable. Is there any way in where you live to look up doctor recommendations? To make sure you go to someone highly rated by other women.

No. 228185

>>228168 thanks, i live in the UK and I don't even know if there's any tools out there to look up specific good-rated gynos or only good female ones. I've tried googling and looking for ones near me but there's nothing that really comes up?

obviously I have to go through the NHS but they usually just assign you a gyno at random, and I don't want someone who is dismissive of my vaginismus…or worse, a male. I am sexually active but don't have any problems down there, but I just wanna make sure that when the time comes to get a smear it's actually done by someone who cares and is good at their job.

I even tried booking a gyno appointment through NHS a while ago but the waiting list was 50 weeks long and you're not really considered until 25 or unless you have a specific problem.

No. 228188

my bf will still go down on me but he can't help but to tell me that it even smells kind of rancid. he tells me not to worry and he's still up for oral, but i still feel mortified. and i shower too, i swear!! it makes me not want him to go down on me near the end of the month. could i fix the smell somehow? is it maybe my diet? is this normal?

No. 228286


mine does this too nonnita. every month it will smell so strong and sour it's kind of gross to me but I can never pin it on one specific smell. also soaks my underwear so its unavoidable.

my bf was near my crotch when it was one of those days and he was like "can you smell pee?" i could have died on the spot.

Is a vagina use it or lose it? I didn't get my period for over a year and when it finally came back, I noticed that I couldn't put tampons in anymore. It wasn't my preferred period product usually, but I don't remember it being this difficult in the past. I decided to look in a mirror to see what was going on and after what I saw, I decided to go to the doctor. She said everything looked healthy, but that I seem to have mild vaginismus and that my vagina is more 'closed' than that of other women. She wanted to give me a referral, but my insurance doesn't cover it. I'm not going to fuck men, so that's not an issue or anything, but I didn't exactly expect to be a stone butch.

You should look up exercises for vaginismus too. The vaginal walls are a muscle and like any other muscle, if you don't "use" them in a while they can feel a little different or tight, to an extent of course.

I'm not diagnosed with vaginismus but I've been using tampons for 15 odd years and last year I found I was suddenly having plenty of moments where I would tense up and struggle with inserting one. I'd been single for a while. I'm not a big craver of penatrative play so tampons were the only time anything went inside me for a good while there. Tbh I got a very small toy and maybe once or twice a month I use it just to keep myself familiar and comfortable with insertion. I think I had grown to associate insertion with pressure, cramping and just an all round unpleasant time. That and pap smears because I had a series of exams a while back. I had lost all positive associations with that part of myself. I anticipated it feeling bad and that feeling snowballed.

I'm still not the biggest craver of internal play, I can take it or leave it but a session here and there helps. Like you I mainly just care about not losing the choice to use tampons. I looked at dilator sets at one time but ended up just buying a really slim toy. Some of those proper sets are pricey and I'm not looking to 'get back to full on sex' like some women are.

It was only like 5 tampons in a handy lil carry case and obviously it was designed to get you to try out that certain brand and maybe become a customer… my mom confiscated it from me when I got home! From 12 to maybe 17 she refused to let me own or try out a tampon. She used 'toxic shock concerns' as an excuse but I honestly think it was some dated catholic idea she had about them causing promiscuity.

I had moments where I'd be in a public bathroom and I'd see those vending machines and think about using that as my oppurtunity to secretly see what they're like. It's a weird thing to look back on.

Downside is because of how wrinkled it is, it builds up a lot of smegma, don't get it any other area.

it happens every time i walk anywhere for long enough and it feels super itchy but not like thrush or bv etc. it just feels like the hairs themselves are causing friction or itching?
i trim my pubes as shaving makes it even more itchy and worse, and tbh i'm not going to consider waxing or any other hair removal either - i don't like the visual or feeling of it.
could it be the type of underwear i'm wearing? it does get a lot better when i just take off my underwear and wear joggers or pyjamas etc but obviously i need to wear some form of underwear for the gym. any advice?

Have you tried growing it out slightly longer? And yes, the type of underwear could alsocause it. I usually wear thongs since they don't give me that 4 butt cheek look and the fabric doesn't bunch up. Maybe you need something more breathable?

It's definitely the length of the hair that's causing this. I shave every 2 days usually and never get itchy, but if I grow it out for 4+ days to a proper stubble it becomes terribly itchy.

If I trim too short then I get prickly labia stabbing stubble going on. I don't notice it when I'm at home but I'll go for a walk and suddenly feel it.

I understand how you feel about getting an exam done as I have vaginismus too and haven't been for one yet.

Another anon with vaginismus, doctor used a small speculum for me, tried to make it as warm as possible, took time and also gave the option to take anti anxiety meds prior. She also explained everything she did and told me she would stop any time I would tell her to. It was still painful, but honestly the scraping was more painful than the speculum. I'm still not thrilled about them, but it was less horrifying than it could've been. I think having an understanding doctor/gynecologist really helps.

ladies i consistently have a lot of discharge throughout of the month. it goes from stringy clear almost mucus like to clumpy white which at time dries yellow on the underwear.

it’s embarrassing how much i produce every time. like i’ll have some on my underwear and some will still come off/out when i wipe. i’m so embarrassed about having sex so i always try to go to the bathroom before to clean up both myself and my underwear lol. i’m terrified of someone just looking down and seeing it still there attached on my labia or smth or more coming out during anything involving penetration :/

No. 230803

i have always had a lot of discharge too, it's normal and nothing to worry about as long as it doesn't smell bad and theres no strange bleeding or pain.

it really isnt anything to be embarrassed about but I know how you feel. If anyone you get intimate with has an issue with your body producing mucus to keep it healthy then they are very immature! also from my experience (with men at least) they like to see it during penetration? It's definitely not a turn off to a lot of people. I think the most you can do is just give yourself a quick shower or wipe down before sex…that's what I do but I still get more during penetration. Again, it's normal and every woman produces different amounts of it

No. 230860

It sounds totally normal to me anon but if you're concerned it really doesn't hurt to get tested just in case. Even if you don't have any other symptoms, some STIs like chlamydia can cause an excess production of discharge.

No. 231695

im pretty sure that like 90% of men like it, so no issue with that.
also, as far as i know, it's okay for it to turn yellow after it dries out. but if it is yellow when it comes out/still wet, that might be a problem.
nothing to worry about. if that's a big concern, i feel like most guys like it during penetration because it looks like cum/precum to them.

No. 237641

Gross warning; I know it's normal to bleed a bit during ovulation but is it normal to straight up bleed big chunks? Quite a lot of blood (like a light period) and a lot of dark chunks. I also don't feel all that good, brain fog and slight cramps. This has been (newly) going on last 5 months during ovulation, I asked my gyno and she said to not worry. It worries me a bit though.

No. 237812

Overall from the description it sounds completely normal, the big chunks mean that just at the moment your uterus produces more lining, though it's understandable you're concerned considering other symptoms like brain fog. Maybe you had some changes to your diet latest few months, or lifestyle? In general I'd trust your gynos opinion here that there's nothing to worry about really but stay observant for any more potential changes in the future.

Does anyone off birth control notice sometimes their periods affect them more one month over the others? I’m glad I started cycle tracking because my pms is hitting particularly hard this month and if I didn’t know why it was happening I think I’d actually be suziecidal. My skin has gone to shit, my appetite is terrible, working from home is kicking my sociable ass, and I made the mistake of looking through my college photo album and going into a nostalgia-driven spiral about how I didn’t know how good I had it living in the same city as all my friends until it was over. I was also wayyy hornier than usual while I was ovulating. Can hormone levels fluctuate so extremely from one cycle to the next that one month you’re caught by surprise and the next you’re aware of every phase?

Earlier itt I was complaining about being dry after getting on and then off again of birth control for my PCOS. Shortly after, I started taking inositol for the PCOS, and I guess it solved my problem. I think I have been taking it for like a month now, maybe?

And I don't even get the pms symptoms like breast tenderness any more. Tried the vitamin C method and it usually works but not this time

No. 245902

I fucking hate how women diagnosed with PCOS are just thrown on some birth control and that's it. Birth control fucks your hormones up instead of regulating them and being out on estrogen pills will make it even harder to regulate. When I got diagnosed they told me nothing about diet, exercise, insulin resistance etc. Just "take this birth control you'll be fine". I really hate how many women with PCOS get neglected

No. 245969

Is not getting a period bad? I don’t want kids or anything, but I do worry if a period is something you should have regardless for other health reasons or something.
I started an extremely stressful job recently and while I will still get pms symptoms, there is absolutely no bleeding at all. It’s been 2 months like this.
I do take birth control because I used to have heavy bleeding that lasted weeks, and I was also diagnosed with endometriosis. The birth control I take only has 4 “period days”, which are more like 2 and consists of old blood. When I first started the birth control the bleeding was heavier and more fresh, but over time it’s barely anything and brown. My gynecologist said this was normal when I asked her about it, and she that it was a good thing, so I tried not to worry about it. But with getting no periods at all now, I don’t know if it’s the pills doing this, or if it is actually stress causing it. My periods stopped completely at the start of this new job so…I think it’s stress? But is no period a bad thing? Am I supposed to be shedding whatever lining is left in there? Gyno said it’s fine keeping it in tact but with the endometriosis, I don’t really know.

In mid November i got in a accident that led me to go to the hospital and get an ultrasound just in case and there was nothing. I havent gotten my period since and already have a appointment.

I can only speak for myself, but I often miss it due to stress. When I moved to a foreign country years ago I didn't get it for several months and also when I was working at a stressful job, I also missed it once. So for me, it is not a big deal, I know that it is caused by stress

I am the >>226842 anon. I took prescribed pills, they stopped my blood flow only on 6th day out of 10, I stopped taking them and a day after that I started bleeding. I hope I am being paranoid, but it seemed to have started with my normal period blood colour (darkish), but on a 2nd day I started getting extremely red and bright blood (you would see it on a lot of "pregnancy bleeding" posts and now there is a lot of it that it went throughout my pad. I feel extremely dizzy from the loss of blood and bad in general. I am not sure if I should go to my gyno again or wait it out until it's "supposed to end" like my periods do - they last a week. (Also the blood started during the right "period" time according to my Flo app). I am not sure if I should be paranoid or not, but I feel awful. So much blood and it's all bright red, my urine is okay so it's just me bleeding. I'm sorry for bothering anons. Idk what is wrong with me neither doctor cares about it enough, he shrugged it off, saying he doesn't know what's wrong with me and gave me Duphaston (that's what I was taking).

I hope there's some other nonnas out there that get a similar thing as me because it's genuinely confusing and happens every single month. To also clarify, my average cycle length is 33 days. I'll try to explain this the best I can:

I have normal periods and they're regular, nothing really out of the ordinary there. But, I use Clue to track everything vagina-related and I've noticed that, for the past 2 years or so I've had this weird change in discharge:
So for example Day 1-4 of my cycle I have my period, and then every single month around the days 12-14 I get a huge spike in discharge. It's not clear and watery like most people say ovulation discharge is, it's actually quite thick/creamy, very slippery and a pale yellow colour that looks very pale green/yellow on bleached toilet paper. It doesn't smell foul like fish or something, but it smells really really strong…like discharge smell x10.
Also, because I'm releasing so much of this damn discharge and because of how slippery and wet it is, it unfortunately makes me quite itchy down there as I'm never really comfortable and dry. I have to itch sometimes, then I get red skin around there etc…it's just really uncomfortable. Sometimes there is also a very small singular streak or spot of blood mixed in with the discharge - I don't know if that's something that has actually come from inside my vagina or maybe just a spot of blood from where the itchy skin has been irritated, I can never tell.

Then, like clockwork, it clears up in a few days and I sigh with relief, then it's BACK at around day 22-24 of my cycle, minus the tiny spot of blood. Then it'll clear up again, I'll have my period and here we go again etc etc.
Picrel, I've been looking at hormonal level charts and noticed that on the days I've mentioned, the estrogen levels spikes. Could this be why I'm getting the crazy discharge? I have already tried to book an appointment with a gyno but I'm facing a huge waiting list and cannot afford private care. It's also not classed as an emergency considering I'm not in pain, I guess.

I can generally manage this by just changing underwear more often and making sure I'm dry, but I would be lying if I said it wasn't annoying as fuck. I'm hoping someone out there has a similar thing to me because none of my friends do, and I've had no luck finding out what it may be. I'm also not on any birth control.

No. 246512

Wow, you pretty much just described my cycle. Except for the blood, but there’s a thing called ovulation spotting which is completely normal. Still a good idea to keep an eye on it in case it changes.

I get the crazy amount if discharge at around the same time, although mine seems to change colour and consistency day to day. it’s just gross and I also get irritated if I can’t keep dry. I use washable cloth pads so I don’t have to change underwear and they’re a godsend. Individually wrapped wipes are also handy. Im also mega horny at the same time which makes sense because of the spike in hormones.

No. 246699

Good to know I'm not alone! I never thought about cloth pads, I've been meaning to buy some for a very long time but they're often quite expensive…I guess I should fork out for some good quality ones. Do they keep you dry a lot more than normal pads do? I find that disposable pads just get itchy and sweaty and give me bumps on my skin especially during this super-discharge time of the month.

No. 246791

It's called egg white cervical mucus and it's produced because of your ovulation. It's slippery to help the semen get into your uterus and up to the eggs. During other times of the month your cervical mucus is too thick for sperm to pass. Contrary to popular believe it doesn't have to be completely clear, for some women it is milky. All women get this discharge during ovulation, some more and some less than others but it's a good way to track your fertile days.

Yellow/green and itchy should be cause for concern tho. I think you should get checked out and swabbed to see if you have an infection.

No. 246805

I should clarify that the discharge itself isnt itchy, but that because I produce so much of it it makes me feel sweaty and gets just too moist down there thus I start to itch and irritate my skin. I can't explain it perfectly but I've had bv and thrush before and it feels nothing like either of them. It feels like if you hang around in sweaty gym underwear for hours after doing lots of cardio, sort of thing.

I did think ovulation discharge was meant to be clear tbh so thanks for clarifying. I've already taken yeast and bv tests before and I don't have either.today, I'm completely dry and clear and theres no itching whatsoever, it gets like this every single month.

It's definitely caused by ovulation, if you already got checked out I wouldn't worry about it.

I use really light pantiliners around ovulation. U by Kotex makes extremely thin ones. Always (thinnest one in blue wrapper) is my second choice. I used to like Always dailies too, but I can't find them unscented where I'm living now.

Only use unscented liners. My partner once mocked me for wearing liners but f it, who wants to have wet underwear or change underwear during the day? It's much easier to change a liner.

True story it ended up with me practically in tears and my doctor telling me we can try again in a few years with a pediatric speculum. Like she couldn’t get in there and I couldn’t relax even though I kept telling myself it’s fine it’s just a medical procedure. I don’t masturbate and I only used a tampon once when my mom showed me how to put it in ….I feel disconnected from my body a lot of the time when I try to explain to my doctors that it’s just a part of my body I just like…don’t really use. My periods are pretty shitty but they always remind me that all my shit is there and working lol. I’m just kind of nervous about getting another Pap smear in a year or two….how on earth do you sit ( lay down ) through it and not panic?

Vaginismus. I've got it too and I'm in my 30s. Intense, uncontrollable tightening of the vaginal muscles, usually because of anxiety.
I already came with a fear of doctors and my stress/anxiety causes me to be tense at all times (tension in my shoulders at the dentist, sore jaw from clenching my teeth, etc).
My old practitioner helped me through a desensitization process with her after she did a similar exam and realized the severity of it. First it was just getting to my medical/sexual history, she did the breast exam the next time i visited, learning to relax my abdomen so she could feel the ovaries from the outside, next time i visited she did the digital exam of the ovaries (finger insertion and feeling the pelvis), then we eventually got around to doing the pap smear another visit.
I recently moved and had to start over with a new doctor and she gave the fuck up on me, lmao. Thankfully she did the pap, but I was still too tense for the digital exam of the pelvis. I ended up getting an ultrasound (on abdomen only) to check my ovary health. It did reveal some things that answered my questions about what was going on down there that wouldn't have been answered otherwise.
There's a few desensitization exercises you can look up now that you have a name for it. I wish you luck nonny, I know how tough that shit can be. (Maybe also get a prescription for muscle relaxers or xanax before the appointment too, ha.)

No. 247497

Kek. I don't think it's an issue anon. Not really sure how it would be possible to totally isolate the pelvic floor. It's kind of like telling someone to flex their bicep without also tensing the tricep. It's all kind of generally connected and in a similar area. So long as you're not experiencing a fatigued asshole by the end of your exercises you're probably fine.

These kind of drawings are exaggerated, but the female urethra is like 1.5 inches long. What you’re liking pressing against is your actual bladder.

I’m not saying it is or isn’t your G spot but honestly sounds like your bladder. If I do have a G spot, its a ways up there. I can’t reach it myself but a nice cock or dildo rubs on it for two seconds and I’m done.

i hope it's normal and just varies from woman to woman but i do wonder if stress and body image plays a part in it. i do find myself often "embarrassed" to relax during sex due to previous trauma and just thinking everything needs to look good/be a performance…i'm hoping that like you, it will get better when i get older and just chill out a lot more. but even when i'm by myself it's the same, idk it's strange.

Are you in some sort of desperate situation where you need to trade sex for shelter and food? If not please stop, because of course you don't feel anything positive letting yourself be used like a prostitute for commodities. It's only fun when it's based on mutual affection and attraction, not treated like a cold business deal.

I'm sure it's much better when done with a person you know and like.

But I just assumed that any kind of physical stimulation down there should at least make you feel something, even if it's by a stranger you don't care about.

I've never been in a romantic relationship and I'm 29 so I've got to find a way to enjoy the kind of sex I can have. Namely casual sex with strangers.

>But I just assumed that any kind of physical stimulation down there should at least make you feel something, even if it's by a stranger you don't care about.
Your assumption is false. Unless you're excited about hooking up with that person, you most likely aren't going to feel any physical pleasure. There are always exceptions to this, of course. But for another example of this, people don't typically feel any pleasure at all when they're being molested or sexually assaulted, even if they don't receive any physical injury from it. Arousal is just as much a mental thing as it is physical.

Can you make yourself orgasm from masturbation? There's no need for a man if you can make yourself cum on your own, plus it avoids the issue of feeling like you're being treated as a sex object instead of a fellow human. I can make myself orgasm in less than 10 minutes, never met a man who could do it as efficiently and pleasurably as me. So if I'm sharing myself that intimately and spending my energy on another person, they better be really cute and as interested in my pleasure as I am.
>I've got to find a way to enjoy the kind of sex I can have
Except you aren't enjoying it. Sorry, but sex just isn't fun for most people (especially women) unless we are with partners who care about us and actually put in effort to please us. Don't waste time on scrotes who just want to bang you for the cost of some cocktails.

My orgasms are pleasureless. They're just relaxing. Literally just my vagina pulsating and a feeling of relaxation and being "done". If anything they make me hornier.

I think I desensitised myself as a teenager from masturbating multiple times a day.

I've taken long breaks from masturbation, tried different toys, techniques. Nothing has worked.

No. 252785

That's not normal anon. I have masturbated to that extent before as well but I never lost feeling from it. I feel like we're missing part of the story. It's not normal to lose feeling (maybe tender/sore, but not deadened) and it's not normal to settle for emotionless hookups especially when you can't even pretend you're enjoying them. Unless something is wrong mentally. Depression, trauma from abuse, porn sickness, something is blocking the pleasure. You also referenced "the kind of sex I can have" which seems to imply because you've never been in a relationship you feel like you'll never have one and have to settle for these hookups. Maybe just take a break from things related to sexuality for a while and try to dig into your mindset to figure out what you were really seeking through these encounters. With a therapist if possible.

Can you get anaesthetic or muscle relaxers before a gyno exam? I want to know all my options before I get the pap smear invite (I'm in UK and soon to be 25.)

The issue is that although not diagnosed officially, I match pretty much every symptom of vaginismus and I'm almost certain I have it due to sexual trauma in my teens. I don't want to be put in a position where I get pressured to "just relax and breathe hurdur it's not that bad" while they jam a speculum inside me and completely disregard the fact that my muscles will form the dreaded "wall" that so many women with vaginismus describe.
I would probably be okay with direct anaesthetic to that area to be honest, although ngl I wouldn't even mind, and ideally prefer, being sedated for a while as I tend to kick or panic and shake a lot. I can only describe it as my brain trying to fight my body, and I get extremely distressed when put in a clinical situation like that.
When I'm alone and dilating it's fine though, because I can control it in the privacy of my own home. However, it's still a struggle.
If any other nonnas out there have advice on how to actually be firm and talk to doctors about this stuff too, I would appreciate it. I've heard so many horror stories of women just feeling like they can't speak up or just going along with examinations they weren't comfortable with. Me personally, I've experienced doctors just completely ignore anything I say or act as if I'm being dramatic.

No. 254409

I think the only way to know is to ask the doctors at your GP surgery. Ask a couple different doctors if just one is unhelpful and escalate to the Practice Manager if they’re all unhelpful. It might also be good to look into a family planning clinic - staff there are usually a lot nicer, well practiced and less cunty than your average doctors surgery gynae. It would be cool if you could report back because tbh after a horrendous pap smear and coil insertion I don’t think I can do either again with a benzo (I don’t mean to scare you, I had some real bad luck with the Pap smear, it absolutely should not have hurt the way it did. Just wanna say I do feel you on the wanting something to help with the appt)

No. 254626

I was sexually abused as a child so when I asked my GP about being anxious about it they prescribed me some diazepam to take on the day before the appointment, they were super cool about it so I guess it's not super uncommon for some women to need a benzo to relax before the exam.

Should I be concerned about a missing period and loss of libido? I've always had an extremely regular cycle but last month it just skipped and 10 days later I got some mild spotting. Months before that I completely lost my libido but I figured it's due to stress and cutting out any form of erotica. I'm going through a life change but major stress never had an impact on my cycle before. I'm not underweight and everything that could point to a hormonal imbalance is pretty much normal. I also am 100% not pregnant.

No. 255487

I've never been penetrated and when I looked at my vagina recently it worries me that it would be too small for it. I know they're supposed to stretch (even more to push a baby) but I also suspect I have vaginismus. Or an additional something wrong with me. When I try to finger myself I can't (hell I can barely even locate my vagina that's how clenched it is) and I don't get any pleasure from it. Before you say "that's fine, just don't" the thing is I'm extremely determined to do it. Because I do someday want to have PIV sex and even if not I still want to enjoy fingering myself like other women. I just won't accept that it's not possible, I am resolved to teach myself. Are there any nonnies who overcame vaginismus willing to share advice? I get anxious about it even when I'm turned on and wet, but I'm not going to give up until I can do it. I only plan to let a dick up there if it's someone I'm very serious about and can feel safe with, but that's also what worries me, what if it just doesn't work and we couldn't be together? That's my nightmare. So as you can see there is a lot on the line here, maybe that's what contributes to it. But I'm not giving up

No. 255491

Your vagina is not too small, it's your muscles. For me, I had a partner where sex just didn't work because of my vaginismus, then eventually with my next partner I was able to get it to work. You just need experience.

No. 255494

Do you use tampons at all? That's how I started, it's decent practise for finding your vagina and putting something inside with some regularity. And because there's a purpose to it beyond pleasure/future sex, it might be easier to commit to despite the pain.
You seem very determined though, so I'd say trying with your fingers is just as good, probably better in your case. I'll tell you now you're probably not enjoying it because one female finger is definitely too short and too thin to feel good, and if you have especially small hands it's difficult to get a decent angle. Try putting in two and stretching it out a little bit. That will hurt, at least at first. Once you're feeling brave, get a small dildo or something vaguely phallic to ease inside. That part will hurt the most but I swear once you bottom out it will feel much, much better and you might even start to enjoy the "full" feeling. I wasn't able to take it very far on my own because I'm very averse to pain, so you may need a (patient) partner to help you through this. I'm sure there is tons more advice on acclimating to penetration ITT but I thought I'd give you my personal take.

It was so frustrating and I thought something was wrong with me. I was uncomfortable with using my fingers, too. I had bought an average size dildo thinking it could work for some reason. It didn't and I cried really hard about it bc I thought I'll never be able to have PIV sex. Some time after that, I ended up buying a small, phallic-shaped clit stimulator/vibrator. It actually fit inside one day. Then I bought a thicker vibe a while after that. Eventually I could even use the original dildo I bought. When I finally had PIV sex, it was not a problem either. I no longer have any issues using tampons too thank god

My urethra keeps on getting irritated after sex all of a sudden. It is so annoying, how do I stop this from happening? I've been with my scrote for 3 years and it's only recently become a problem.

It just feels like a burning on my left side of my urethra and surrounding area. I got a UTI 2x in the span of a month and a half and it healed, but now I get this. Is there a way to prevent it?

I would talk to a doctor to make sure nothing is wrong. If your not sexual active you can try chaste berry and don quai. If you are and don’t use condoms don’t use them it will fuck up your BC.

I'm going to the gynecologist for the first time soon and I don't really know what to expect. I mainly want to go because I'm not sure if there's something wrong with my vagina. Lately, I have a strong smell on days with a lot of discharge, and a few days ago I felt this burning sensation when my discharge was coming out, which has never happened before, but it also hasn't happened since. I'm worried but figured this might as well be the time to start making visits to the gynecologist. I'm a virgin though and have admittedly never stuck something up my vagina, not even a finger or tampon. I'm nervous and scared that it's going to hurt. I know they can't force me to take an examination against my will but I know it's better if they can check on my health. Any advice to calm down?

No. 255679

It could be a uti you don't have to be sexually active to get one. But it's good if you want to have it checked out. Ask if you can take something beforehand you go in. Honestly being nervous makes you clench more try to relax yourself, maybe even look down there with a hand mirror and familiarize yourself with yourself it could help ease the nerves if you know what's going on

It's not discharge and it doesn't hurt to touch, it's just white. I looked online and the only thing that sounds similar is lichen sclerosis? Is there any other condition that causes white skin inside the vagina? I already talked to my doctor and she prescribed me a tablet for the vaginal dryness I've been having.

Is it normal to completely dry when you're aroused, no matter if it's with a partner or on your own? I've tried to look into this and to be honest it's making me feel like something is wrong with me…
I've always naturally had a lot of discharge ever since I can remember inspecting my underwear as a child, but when I'm horny I just don't get that wetness that everyone else seems to. It's literally just like…dry down there, of course it's moist inside but nothing ever comes out.
I already use lube and I'm not afraid to use lots of it, but something about that is just concerning to me…I drink lots of water too and even then it's just…nothing, just dry. I just honestly don't seem to produce any natural wetness and if I do then it sure as hell isn't coming out of me. It was like this even before any of my sexual trauma - and surprisingly the trauma didn't make it any worse, it's just exactly the same.

Could there be something wrong with me? I've heard of women having varied wetness of course but never really anyone being completely absent of it. I guess I'm overthinking it but it honestly feels so unsexy to me like my body is just repulsed by arousal/sex even though my brain isn't, I feel like some sort of dried-up little raisin kek. Do any other nonnas have the same thing? I did try and look on Reddit for some similar issues but I'm very wary to take any sort of advice from people on there.

Nonnie, I am the exact same. But I also get horny very, very rarely and when I do, I can feel the arousal and you know, the throbbing but I don't really get wet, you'd have to really put a finger in there to feel some moistness. I've always attributed this to my extremely low libido. I don't know if it is anything to be concerned about though, but maybe get your hormone levels checked? I've been advised to do that for other reasons as well.

No. 256680

late reply, but nonnie do you feel like the muscles of your vagina are too tight (vaginismus), or is it the skin? Because if it's the latter I can relate. I did not have sex until quite late (25), and prior to that inserting anything bigger than a single finger was painful. I never cared because I didn't wear tampons and didn't believe I would ever meet a man, let alone have sex with one. Lo and behold I did meet a guy, so I decided to stretch myself in anticipation of PIV sex so my first time wouldn't be too painful. I just used my fingers, going slow, but it still burned like hell. It took me ages to even get a second finger in. Got to 2 fingers and a pinky before I finally did have sex. Luckily the guy had a bit of a pencil dick. It still burned but penetration was definitely possible; there was no muscle cramping it was all just tight skin. Which was gone completely after having sex a couple of times.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, don't worry too much. You might just have a tight vaginal opening like me, which just requires a little extra time and care.
But more importantly, if you have any worries go talk to a gyno.

No. 256690

can we talk about the fact that men today literally, unironically believe that the way most women's post-pubescent labia naturally look is the result of years of hardcore promiscuous sex? I know it's just the stupid men, yeah, ok whatever. It still pisses me off. Where did this psy-op come from? To sell labiaplasties? Well, I caved in to the pressure. I have been made to hate my own vulva…it makes me feel like a monster and unwomanly. The internet makes a lot of women feel insecure about a lot of things but nothing besides this really bothers me. Idgaf about my "hip dips" or having "pepperoni nipples" or having a "thunder thighs" with no gap or any of the other ridiculous names the internet has created to mock women's bodies. Has anyone else noticed the obsession people have with coming up with ways to turn normal body features most women have into dehumanizing, embarrassing insults? As a result of seeing all the "roastie" memes, etc (one gif of a woman standing over a fan so her labia would flap about in the wind has haunted me) with man after man after man lining up to mock the woman in question, contribute an outrageously ugly yet actually kind of true drawing to mock it (I'm reminded of one where the labia had been turned on their side to resemble lips, kind of like a duck bill, and there was a microphone against it and the caption was like "women's opinions" or something) has traumatized me. I…I agree with them. Having so-called "beef curtains" longer than like 1 cm is undignified and obscene. If they flap about I now cringe with second-hand shame. Does anyone else feel the same way? I don't care about being a "good feminist" or "not letting the incels win" so keep it moving if you want to give me that lecture. My labiaplasty is scheduled for early June. The only problem is that I will never know if the man I end up having sex with is actually a good one or if he would think less of me if he knew how mine had looked before. I cope by telling myself tiny labia are more hygienic (the edges of long labia seem to be a magnet for bits of tp you don't notice until hours later) and would make me more comfortable (anything but granny panties gets caught in my labia and pulls, and God help me if I don't wear any underwear at all)
I just remember seeing men talking online about how one had lost his virginity and the first time he saw a vagina he was disgusted by the labia but shut his mouth so she would still let him fck her. That terrifies me. Imagine gathering the courage to show someone your body and let him take your virginity and secretly all he is thinking is how disgusting you are, but is cold and calculating enough to deceive you so that he can collect his notch and move on. The man from that forum btw went on to say that he was "relieved" to find out that not all women look like that, including his current wife. And men call US "hypergamous." Rant over.

Men are plain evil and retarded because of porn standards and just being motivated by others to hate women’s natural features and see them as objects to put penis in. I have really long and uneven labia so it’s my main insecurity. I would get surgery but it honestly never bothers me in day to day life and my current long term partner doesn’t mind anyway despite me being insecure. I’ll probably always be insecure but I think doing surgery is a slippery slope for other things to change about myself. I don’t blame you for getting it done since you have other reasons anyway. Another thing is I’ve looked at post op photos and it’s just weird to imagine having a barely showing labia like it’s not actually my own vulva I’m used to and I don’t want my appearance dictated by what some surgeon deems as desirable or necessary.

No. 256705

Sorry if this is a stupid question but does 'roast beef' more refer to the labia size or color? I never understood why scrotes wouldn't find it appealing to be putting their junk in something with extra flesh/protection surrounding it that sounds like it would be a better sensation but I guess I don't think with my dick.

Men literally have brain rot from porn they don't even understand how normal functioning human bodies look or feel. Yes bodies have hair and moles and don't look good from every angle. Being fed media that only portrays the 'apealing' side to things fucks your perception up.
How are they going to be picky about what a woman looks like if he's been staring at screens all day pulling his ween then going to complain when it doesn't look like the shit catered to him? Esp if he doesn't look like porn standard himself. And yet they can complain if women make fun of their dick size crying because they can't change it.

Probably both darker coloration and the appearance itself. They only want a pink fleshlight hole so anything resembling a unique human feature is different and therefore gross because it doesn’t look like their anime girl porn or teen category on pornhub.

They use it as an insult because they see vagina as our only value.

For the first few years that I was sexually active I wasn't really aware of that labia even varied that much. Then I became aware and it was oh ok didn't know but that's a thing. Then another few years later I started seeing men online saying really (bitter incel sounding) fucked up shit about how that lil bit of flesh is somehow ruining the whole woman for them. Then like you said the 'used up vag' talk that's just pulled out of their asses and not how anatomy works. You have what you have at the end of puberty. That's it.

Now I've an innie myself, in retrospect I'm like… so where was all that pussy eating or pussy worship I should 'in theory' have been getting for winning the vag lottery? Oh that's right scrotes don't care and don't treat you any better or get you off for having this thing they pretend to value so much. You can have the vagina they claim to want above others and they still can't be arsed to eat it so what's the difference? It doesn't add up.

I mean I know what it's like to look at two sets of gentitals and like one more.. I've seen some penises that definitely don't make me want to suck them and I've seen ones that do… but it doesn't even seem to correlate like that when men bitch about vag appearance.

It's been a while but my first smear test showed 'Squamous Cells' and when they rang me and broke the news to me they acted like it was more serious than it turned out to be. I also had one of the bad strains of hpv so maybe that's why.

Ime I went on to have a smear done every 6 months after that, I retested and after 2 years my immune system had cleared the hpv and nothing ever had to be done in the end. It was stressful vut tbh turned out be to nowhere near as bad as I thought initially. They monitor that stuff closely but it sometimes resolves itself. If it doesn't resolve itself they'll catch it in time as long as you keep appts. If you had cancer already they'd be calling it something else so don't panic.

No. 257119

thank you anon, i've barely gotten any sleep because of other stress so my brain is kinda freaking out over everything. my sister (nurse practitioner) says to get retested soon. sucks bc i have trauma and cried during it, but it was so quick. just reminds me of past pain and recently i've had 2 instances of reminiscent pain with people i kept saying no to.

anyone else feel like they have no clitoris? i barely ever masturbated only two or three times in my whole life and i felt extreme disgust emotionally paired with nothingness physically before during and after. it feels like if touching your mouth lip on the inside but more shameful and weird because of the creases, that and i am afraid of accidentally hurting myself or giving myself an infection of sorts because i dont know what i am doing. this means i have never had an orgasm before. i try to find my clitoris when i am in the shower but not only can i not identify it but i also feel nothing when i start feeling around there like a crazy person with my fingers. this has me wondering if i went through some kind of FGM as a baby but idk. i also never feel sexual in general even when i am ovulating, maybe i will think of getting married with a blank person and perhaps raising a baby but nothing sexual. all of this led me to thinking i was a special type of intersex that gets a period with the addition of me not developing most the secondary sex characteristics kek
anyone else like this? is this some kind of birth defect?

No. 257158

Is there not anything in your life that turns you on? A certain man, a type of porn, some erotica? Try to be actively aroused first before you try to masturbate and maybe then you'll feel your clitoris

No. 257174

Some clits are just more hidden away and that makes it tricky in the beginning. When I was 19 and still very new to masturbation I noticed using my hands didn't do anything. I thought I was genitally numb or defective. I was already a late bloomer and now this. Then one day I pressed a 'vibrating facial massager' right down on that area and there it was. It opened the floodgates so to speak and from then on I suddenly had a sex drive because I knew what an orgasm felt like. That was a game changer for me. Might be worth a try.

No. 257316

Nonnie I had the exact same thing when I was younger mixed with shame/anxiety/embarrassment around sex because I mentally developed quite "late" and didn't even start trying to explore masturbation until I was 17. I also could not "feel" or see my clit either and tbh I honestly still can't see it kek, so its completely normal for it to be very small and tucked away just as it's normal for some of them to be big. I freaked out about this too but trust me you still have one, you just need to be patient and not set any unrealistic expectations upon yourself. You don't have to kickstart yourself into some sexual revolution, you might just find it useful to read some erotica made by women.
Unfortunately it's very common for women to feel like they are broken/defected if they're not a sex goddess by a certain age, the only thing you can do is progress at your own pace. A big thing that helped me was just sitting somewhere comfortable with a funny show on in the background, with a mirror between my legs and just switching between watching tv and just getting used to the appearance and texture/feel of the vulva. It sounds crazy to some but if you just take your time, chill with a drink (and clean hands) and just watch something on Netflix etc you can eventually make steps towards not seeing your vulva as something defective or disgusting/scary. I should add I have vaginismus due to trauma and how I am basically scared of there being a "hole" in my body and this method of just chilling and getting to know my body in a non-sexual context helped a LOT before advancing to experimenting sexually. Maybe this could be useful for you, if not just know you are not alone.

No. 257344

it may be worth using some
lubricant because if you feel around down there when you’re not wet enough it can feel dry and painful. lube for me makes a barrier of sorts and makes everything feel
much better and more sensitive - not just my clit but also the labia as well. i second what the other anons have said and take some time to look at your vulva in the mirror and feel around and get comfortable. use lighter touches at first

I hate that I'm using moid terminology but I have a legitimate question and I'm unsure about the exact words to use. I don't have an 'outie' vulva, but what exactly is the biological name from the thing that protrude outwards from an 'outie' vulva? Is it the clitoral hood? Does it protrude outwards even when the woman's legs are closed? Wouldn't that be painful/uncomfortable?

the labia minora?

No. 257690

Usually it's the labia minora and in some cases, if one has a large clitoris, it can be the clitoral hood plus the clitoris as well. But that's not in the same area as the minora.

Post pubescent? Mine have been long all my life, I remember when I was a kid I thought "why is this soft part sticking out" and I'd tuck them in kek
I also feel absolutely nothing when touching the outside, but when I put a finger inside it doesn't exactly feel good but it feels like something at least. What feels good is putting something a bit longer inside me, try that if you haven't, often people say here they don't feel good having something inside them but touching the outside feels good, maybe we are the opposite. If you have no things that are meant to go inside you, I pull a thin rubber glove over something long like a lint roller or hairbrush handle

Yeah same I have no idea where my clitoris is but I can orgasm no problem. I am really sensitive in the area where my clit supposedly is but I don't see idk a nub or hood or anything like that. It's like missing. I mean I know realistically it's probably not but I don't see that part or anything that could be hiding it when I move stuff around. All this just to say you're not alone. I'm kind of sad about it because I think they are cute but oh well. It's not like I have to look at it or anything.

No. 258660

same. i thought that i didn't have one, but it's just really small and completely covered by the hood.
it kinda sucks because that means i don't have much sensitivity there. sex, fingers, and/or oral alone doesn't stimulate my clit naturally. i have to use a vibrator to get to my clit through the hood. i have no problem orgasming if i at least have a vibrator there. my ex boyfriend was okay with me using a vibrator on my clit during penetrative sex, so i really hope that my next partners do not mind that either. i know some guys don't like vibrators for some reason, but it's the only way i can get to the sensitivity there.
pulling the hood back doesn't make much of a difference and it is so long, it feels weird doing it and i don't want to have to keep a hand there keeping it back.

No. 258665

Is there a normalize big clits thing? I started out with a very hidden one and I now have a large one after spending a year or so on the tranny train. It's been an improvement pleasure wise. I'd be lying if I didn't admit it kind of made that year worth it. I found stim difficult before that. Was pretty reliant on strong vibes and while people argue about this.. I did find overuse of vibes desensitized me. I could always take a break and it'd sort itself out in time but it wasn't a great situation to be using wands and taking breaks and using wands again and just.. orgasming felt like a real task at times. My problem was visual, it was function.

Ime now I'm too sensitive for vibes. Everything has to be manual. Men are pretty unphased by it overall. I don't know if they can tell my anatomy is in a way unnatural. If you don't acknowledge it first they never seem to mention it themselves. I would be nervous with a woman I think. I haven't been with a woman since before all that. I think all men care about with clits is that you react to it being touched. I've livef with both extremes and nobody has ever made an umprompted comment about size.

I see a lot of other anons talking about orgasming during PIV and saying how women rarely getting off during is a myth. But that's been exactly my experience. I have only had two really good sex partners in my life and only one of them was able to make me feel what I think was an orgasm once. I genuinely didn't understand what was happening to me because it felt so different from a clitoral one, but it felt like I had to pee. Is it possible I have a very small gspot or don't have one? I just feel really broken hearing about everyone coming from sex and not me. Am I really the only one?

Like PIV does feel good in and of itself, just not always and never good enough that I could actually orgasm from it. I do masturbate a lot so I wonder if that's why, like maybe you have to be sexually frustrated to the point that any kind of stimulation finally drives you over the edge.

How do I stop discharging so much? I discharge a little bit every day. The quantity isn’t the issue, but the frequency does annoy me.

It looks gross and I’m afraid of the idea of eventually having sex one day, and my partner seeing it and being disgusted

No. 258955

Nothing really unless you have some other issues that might be caused by some imbalance or an infection. You can always drink more water to possibly make the discharge more fluid, but that's about it, anon. Also, if anyone would get grossed out by a completely natural function a normal vagina does from time to time, it's a sign to not let them near your vagina.

No. 258960

another discharge-chan here, i get it all day every day since as young as i can remember. it is perfectly normal as long as you don't have something like bv or thrush, some women just produce more naturally. i don't think there is any way to "stop" it as it's just your vagina's natural cleaning process and production, however i can recommend soft cotton panty liners or those reusable pads you can get in bamboo material. they're very comfortable and if you get thin/small ones you probably won't notice they're there.
echoing nonnie above: please don't think it's disgusting, if your partner thinks it's gross or weird then it's clear they have no business having sex with women - if anything it should be a good thing for him as it indicates your vagina is working as intended and keeping itself clean naturally. it's completely normal to even have quite a lot of it and if men find it gross then they're immature

Does anyone else feel pain when trying to wash their vulva? My clitoral hood and clit are kind of fused together, so there’s a lot of ‘folds’ around my clit and only a bidet that is at medium pressure is good at cleaning the smegma out. Low pressures do nothing. The pressure of the bidet, or just touching my clit when cleaning, is always painful because of my clit sensitivity. Please tell me I’m not the only one who suffers like this

This is going to sound really gross but I am sooo scared someone might suck some smegma out from under the clitoral hood one day ughh.

She carefully explained every step prior, showing me all the tools, and always mentioned what she was going to do during the pap smear. She used a lot of lube on the thing so I didn't really feel it–I wasn't a virgin though. The cell scraping was a lil strange but it wasn't painful. It was like scraping the inside of your cheek to look at your cells in a microscope for 7th grade science class.

With the birth control I take, my withdrawal bleeding manifests as either a ghost period or a mini-period.

But the delay after the initial cramps and the color of the blood concern me. It's like there's not a large enough volume of blood for it to properly flow like an actual period so it just hangs out up there for a while. I have excessively powerful pelvic floor muscles which I think may have something to do with it. There's no indication of infection, it just worries me. Could this be harmful at all?

Think I’ve made a mistake nonnies. Got my Mirena IUD replaced about 24 hours ago and in that time I’ve become very paranoid and anxious, as well as depressed and angry. I have a lot of mental health issues and it scares me that my new IUD might make some of them flare up again. I’ve had it for 6 years already and now I’ve got a lot of shit going on unrelated to hormones but I’m wondering if it’s been a baseline stressor this whole time. Ideally I’d want to take it out and go IUD free for about 6 months to test this theory but with reproductive rights being so heavily threatened and a new relationship I’m in I’m afraid that might backfire extremely and I wouldn’t be able to get another one if I decided to go back on it. I wanted to get a copper IUD in the first place but since my periods are already so heavy and painful I decided against it. My periods could be debilitating some months and I get nine with Mirena, but my mental health can be just as debilitating.

Should I ride Mirena out, go with Copper, or just resign myself to condoms?

I just went to the bathroom and wiped and I had a lot of brown discharge and looked like I just started my period but I really shouldn’t have since I’m still on my active BC pills and my period should start in a week. This has happened to me twice already this year but this time it’s heavier, those 2 times also a week prior to my period and my actual periods were very light when they came and the bleeding would stop after my period ended. I had a pap smear in January that was normal but I’m starting to panic and think I need to see my gynecologist again. The only time I’ve had discharge similar to this was with a yeast infection and this is definitely NOT a yeast infection.

I also have undiagnosed stomach issues (diarrhea, malabsorption, heavy bloating with intense cramps, sudden intolerance to many foods like garlic and oils) that started last year that my GI can’t seem to figure out, I’m not sure if these correlate at all.

spotting? i have it, usually around ovulation, but a few months ago it lasted the whole week before my period. apparently it can still be normal when it lasts a couple days, or if the heavier random bleeding occurs once in a blue moon. it might also be pcos, but i swear the line is so wonky with these symptoms that you have to physically rule out every condition to still not be 100% sure. at least that's what the doctors i've seen have said.

I've often had brown breathrough bleeding while on BC, annoyingly hard to predict but docs were never too concerned when I brought it up. If you're having significant stomach issues though.. have you talked about that with your BC provider? Maybe pill form isn't the best way to get a steady amount of hormones in your system. Sometimes if you have enough upset stomaches they want you on the patch or another alternative to be safe.

This girl I worked with once said she had to get her ovaries removed because she woke up one day and her vagina fell out?? Like it prolapsed randomly and she was bleeding all over. I've never heard of that wtf can that really happen? I don't work with her anymore so I can't elaborate on what she meant

Why are you in the vagina thread to call people disgusting for talking about vagina problems?

Does anyone have advice on putting in tampons? I tried using one today for the first time and found it really difficult to insert. I watched a couple youtube videos explaining the process, but I still couldn’t get past the discomfort. Even when relaxed there was a lot of resistance and it felt dry and slightly painful. Honestly it felt like I wasn’t even putting it in the right place

Honestly I can't use them if I'm not heavily bleeding. It feels awkward and painful to be putting cotton up there dry. Even worse to pull one out fully dry. I have to (sorry if it sounds gross) lube it up with blood before putting it in all the way. Unless you have pretty heavy periods its not worth using imo

Coming off the pill can definitely fuck up your cycle. Doctors will say wait up to 6 months after you come off the pill to see if your periods settle.

Did you see the guide that came in the tampon pack? That has some handy diagrams. When using a tampon is can be helpful to insert it at an angle - like aim towards the small of your back as opposed to trying to push it directly up. I have to do a really low squat to get a comfortable angle. I only use tampons from the second day of my period when it’s heavier though because like >>266438 said, otherwise it can feel a bit dry/uncomfortable. I bought period pants recently to use instead of pads for the days my periods are super light at the beginning and end and use tampons on the heavier flow days in the middle.

Squat, get your pussy wet (sometimes I use water from the sink), and make sure you're aiming at your hole

it helps to use tampons with a plastic applicator vs a cardboard one

I completely understand this it smells nice. Good way to tell if somethings wrong too because that way you know if something smells off quickly. Proactive

I have a low libido now but the very few times I get horny, regardless of what I do, I feel pain where I think my ovaries are if I'm not mistaken for the next few days and I have a hard time peeing. What does that mean? Does anyone have this sometimes? I just hope I don't have some major health issues. I don't drink alcohol and smoke, I don't take drugs, but I admit I often eat junk food out of convenience and drink soda. I sometimes also hold it in instead of going to pee as often as I should but it's been a while since I stopped doing it unless I'm sleeping at night.

To give more context, regarding my low libido, I'm a nearly 28 years old virgin due to religious bullshit reasons that are out of my control, and I used to be horny before, but not anymore. I barely masturbate too, I'm just too tired and it doesn't feel satisfying. I would like to know if that's normal or not. I guess there could be a lot of different possible reasons but I'm not sure about any of this and I'm too paranoid to see a gynecologist just for that but basically
>used to take human growth hormone injection on a daily basis for like 6 or 7 years as a kid/teenager because of a lack of growth hormone, which could have delayed or prevented my puberty if untreated. I don't take that treatment anymore because I don't need it anymore since I'm 14 years old and a few years ago I still had other symptoms cause by my disorder long ago (memory loss, constantly tired, etc.) but endocrinologists said everything was fine according to blood tests. Maybe it could be related to that, indirectly, but I doubt it
>got covid in late April 2020 and thought I was going to die from it for three months, I've seen that some guys got ED from it, no idea if the equivalent for women could be possible because I felt that change soon before recovering. Could also be just because I was super tired when sick, so too tired to be horny. At the beginning when I became underweight in just a week and could barely breathe and move I didn't feel any change at all in my sex drive though
>had to move back to my crazy religious parents' place after that just in case I would have needed urgent medical assistance, got my old room back but with no lock, and seeing them again and having absolutely no privacy whatsoever could have ruined it for me mentally. That and I was also depressed I lost a one in a lifetime job opportunity abroad because I nearly died of covid

Sounds like you might have UTI but that doesn't impact libido. Having covid and losing weight from being sick could have impacted your libido as could the change in living accommodations and depression. But it could also just be your age, late 20s isn't unusual to see a reduction in libido.

This isn't directly related to the vagina, but I think this would be a good place to ask. Please don't give an "obvious" answer, since I have already lived according to it, as I will illustrate. Anyway, does anybody here feel kind of strange about how many essentially unknown women have seen their entire vaginas (and buttholes) due to waxing? I tried shaving and even purchased an IPL device, but I hate shaving so, so much, that I just can't do it anymore. On the other hand, I went completely hairy for about 6 months too. It was fine and I dealt with it, but it just became too uncomfortable. It itched, most of all. So I want to get rid of the hair on my body, and don't want to shave. I love waxing for every part of it except the fact that a bunch of random women have seen my vagina. It makes me feel dirty and ashamed. Just wondering if anybody else has this sense of ickiness that exceeds the basic embarrassment of getting a Br
