I try to feel around it and I always feel like it's alright but then it still leaks, so I must just absolutely suck at this.
TSS is apparently caused by just air being inside the vagina where it shouldn't be, so cups don't help here at all.

No. 113721

Nah, maybe it’s the shape/size or your flow is too heavy and you’re not changing it enough? Doesn’t work for everyone.

Also, I think tss caused by bacteria growth. I only really hear about it because tampons made of certain fibres/anything left inside long enough encourages rapid growth.
People with burns and cuts can get it too.
Never heard of it being because of air in the vagina but considering how many things can and do go wrong, that’s probably a factor.

I boil mine every two days or so to be safe and don’t leave it in for longer than 8-10 hours.

No. 113722

>I only really hear about it because tampons made of certain fibres/anything left inside long enough encourages rapid growth.

Yeah I think cotton is more bacteria-friendly than silicone. Plus, the string may be a source of bacteria as well.

I‘ve talked to a girl who almost died of sepsis from using the cup (and only had it in for like up to 7 hours) though, so I think neither of the methods that require you to insert anything into your vagina is really safe. The cup has less risks though. If handled correctly, that is.

No. 113725

I'm terrified of those TSS stories but I hate pads so much. I have only used tampons in the past 2 years. I change every 4 to 5 hours. Has anybody had any problem with them here?

TSS is rare and you guys should really not be as worried about it as you are. I posted a substantial rundown about TSS in a previous thread but I can't find it unfortunately so I'll rewrite it.

Basically there was a TSS "outbreak" (obviously it can't be spread from person to person, but in a short period of time there were many cases) in the late 70s and early 80s because of a new tampon brand called Rely, which were marketed as ultra-absorbent and could be kept in for hours and hours. Carboxymethylcellulose and polyester, which made them super absorbent, caused dryness in the vagina and lead to a higher possibility for ulcerations in the vagina upon removal. This, combined with the fact that they could be left in for an extended period of time, led to an abundance of cases of TSS.

Rely tampons were eventually taken off the market because of the extreme volume of TSS cases associated with them and they were found negligent in offering the product. Carboxymethylcellulose and polyester can no longer be used in tampons. The FDA now requires that tampons are regulated as medical devices, absorbencies are regulated, and pamphlets warning users about TSS are included in boxes. The rate of contracting TSS is now 1 in 100,000 - very low.

TL;DR: the chance that you will get TSS is very low and the reason that people think TSS is so widespread is because of FDA regulations stemming from super-absorbent Rely tampons in the late 70s.

No. 113732

I‘ve been using tampons for about 10 years now. I sometimes (but only like 5 times in all those years) had to leave it in for 8+ hours and nothing happened. Wouldn’t recommend trying it - at all - and avoid it as much as possible, but it’s supposed to show that it’s not happening as quickly as it sometimes seems.

Wash your hands before changing your tampon, use the smallest possible size and only leave it in for up to 6 hours and you should be fine.

Also: I noticed that in most stories (at least in the news etc) of people who (almost) died from TSS it’s also people that ignored unusual symptoms like fever, throwing up, etc. and thought they had the flu or similar. It’s mostly people that aren’t aware of TSS and its symptoms.
If you go see a doctor as soon as you show flu-like symptoms, get an unusual rash or similar, you’ll be fine. It’s not a death sentence.

It’s more likely you’ll catch the flu (which could also kill you), yet you won’t stop going outside or seeing people.

No. 113741

once I accidentally left a tampon in for like a month… it was nasty but I didn't get sick or die

No. 113742

wow this is my actual nightmare.
i've heard enough horror stories from female nurses in my family about women not even knowing they needed to take tampons out to last a lifetime.
one story involved maggots

No. 113747

ugh… thankfully my situation wasn't that bad. I think what happened was, during a night of heavy drinking, I couldn't find the tampon string and just assumed that I forgot to put one in, so I inserted another one which must have squished the old one up even further. I was near the end of my cycle so I didn't think much of it when my flow stopped shortly thereafter

No. 113748

when/how did you realize you'd left it up there?

No. 113755

Bacteria can grow because of the air introduced into the vagina. No air, less growth. That was the problem with these super-absorbant tampons they had in the 70s or 80s as well. Here's an interesting article: https://vitals.lifehacker.com/everything-you-think-you-know-about-toxic-shock-syndrom-1831047669

> “Menstrual blood can multiply Staph. aureus organisms from 1,000 to 10 billion,” he said. But in order for all that bacteria to result in TSS, “you just need something to turn on the toxin.”

>That something, Schlievert said, is air.

>Anytime a woman inserts a tampon—or anything else, like a menstrual cup or a diaphragm—she risks introducing oxygen into the normally anaerobic vagina.

I quite like the cup actually, even if I have problems with it fitting (it doesn't overflow, just flows past it, my period isn't that strong) because it feels less intrusive than a tampon with the string etc. Maybe I'll go back to the cup and period panties on my next period. I unfortunately get skin irritations from actual pads.

No. 113757

I used to hate cups after having a bad experience with my first one, but I've since repurchased and this one is a lot better than any other solution I've ever used. My period problems went from shit to amazing.

>Got my first cup, so no frame of reference
>Narrow, made out of stiff silicone
>Would make me want to pee whenever it was in and always leaked
>Insertion and removal were annoying because it would always slide up
>Unfolding it always felt like getting cunt punted on the inside by a large rubber band

>Softer silicone, more malleable
>Doesn't press on my bladder, can't really feel it at all
>Wider, gets almost all of the blood except on the heaviest day (but even then using a reusable liner is plenty)
>Never slides up, removal is easy and fast
>Doesn't make my bathroom reek of menstrual blood since there's no waste in the bin

I'm so glad I didn't completely denounce cups.

No. 113790

Please anon, I’m desperate for a good cup. Do you know the brand of the latter?

Different anon but I've tried Lunette and Diva and they've both been super comfy. Lucky I have a light flow so I literally put it in the night I get my period then change it every 24 hours in the shower

No. 113868

I‘m having a mini crisis rn so please bear with me.

I‘m having one tiny and one slightly bigger skin crack on one side of my vulva, between my inner and outer labia. It hurts like hell and bleeds a tiny bit occasionally.

I‘ve had an unpleasant itch for the past few days but I‘ve also had a lot of sex with my bf on Monday and Tuesday and I always get a bit itchy when he‘s cum inside of me, so I didn’t think too much of it. I didn‘t notice any unusual discharge or smell either, so I don’t think it’s a yeast infection?

I should have gotten my period today and I‘ve been having some really annoying pms symptoms over the past few days. Dry skin being one of them. So I think the cracks are just some really sore and dry skin? Ugh, I don’t know. I‘m kinda worried but also think it’s just a hormonal thing.

However, since I should be starting my period soon, I‘m a bit worried about how to deal with that. I usually use tampons and pads but I feel like neither is actually a viable option right now. Inserting a tampon would actually really hurt right now and a pad just seems very unhygienic.

So does anyone have any idea how I can deal with the wound or has had something similar?

No. 113873


I've had this before - always just assumed it was a yeast infection. Mine clear up easily on their own - don't shave dont there for a bit, drink plenty of water, make sure you're wearing loose fitting trousers and knicks, no sex for a bit either. It really sucks anon, I know how painful and uncomfortable you must be. I think pads are better than tampons so that you're not touching the area as much?

If you've had a yeast infection before and it seems different, you should go to a doctor if your symptoms keep persisting.

Yes, unless you are taking medications that interfere with birth control and for the first week at least of starting being on it, or if you forget to take a dose, with certain types.

No. 113907

How many people did you receive oral from? Are you sure they aren’t just bad at it?

I used to really dislike oral too because I didn’t feel anything either. I thought oral is just not for me and it kinda made sense since I didn’t feel anything from sex either.
Then I met my current boyfriend and oh boy was I wrong. Him eating me out was the first time anyone ever gave me an orgasm. I mean, it’s not like I’ll definitely come whenever he eats me out but it feels significantly better than everything all other guys have done.
Many guys just really suck at it.

Not saying that this definitely has to be the case for you, though.

No. 113909


Also be wary of having sex while you have any illnesses that has a gastrointestinal element to them e.g. diarrhoea, vomiting.

No. 113922

I've had a new boyfriend for a bit more than a month and I'm absolutely crazy about him. I want to have sex with him all the time but the problem is that I get sore literally every single time we have sex. Like, so sore that I can't have sex for a couple of days afterwards. I really don't know why this is happening. I'm usually really wet myself but we've been using lube just in case, so it's definitely not dryness.
I thought maybe it's because condoms increase friction, but last night we didn't use a condom for the first time and I'm still sore… It's so weird because I haven't had this problem with any of my previous sexual partners. His dick definitely is on the bigger size but it's not huge and definitely not a lot bigger than the other guys's. I've realized that this especially happens when he slips out for whatever reason and then reenters, but I really don't know how to avoid this. I'm so frustrated..

I went ahead and bought some Japanese pads because they looked like they were really high quality and held a lot of blood. They were measured by centimeter too instead of being small, medium, large, XL which was awesome because more variety of sizes.
Well, I finally wore them. They suck. I seriously thought the pad was going to start to rip apart. I only wore it for about 6 or so hours. They were nowhere near the same quality like the generic ones I get from Walmart and Aldi. I could wear those practically all day and overnight.
I dunno maybe it's just this brand. I'm glad I got a package of them for only $1. I feel sorry for all the women with a heavy flow and this is all they have. Is there a better brand out there? I'm the type of person that has to wear overnight liners all day and the ones out here in America are way too short for my ass crack.

No. 113941

you should really change them more often than that tho anon….

Feels like absolutely nothing. I’ve had all my partners go down on me just in case they are different but I think it’s just my tiny stupid clit that gets nothing from it. (Sorry I get so frustrated thinking about it)

I just looked up how often I should be changing it.
>Every 3 to 4 hours
Really? I'll run out of pads so fast… I go through 3 to 6 during the duration of my period now I gotta bump it up to like 12. That's over half a bag for one period cycle… Jesus this sucks.

No. 113947

You should change more often for sure. I use toilet tissue layered up plus a pad, if you can't change more often you can at least flush the toilet tissue and replace it. I'm sorta allergic to feminine hygiene products so I try and use tissues when I can.

No. 113948

Holy shit 3 to 6 for an entire period is WAY too little.

Sorry to be this harsh but I feel sorry for the people around you. I mean, unless you have a really, really, really light period (so, basically just spotting) that shit must reek.

You gotta be glad you didn’t get any infections yet. Please change them more often and get over being so gd cheap.

It's usually really heavy for only one day where I'll sometimes need two and it only lasts for 4 or 5 days really light.
Anons, I honestly had no idea I had to change the pad that many times. My mom never told me how many times to change my pad because she mostly used tampons. She never complained about the smell when I still lived at my parents. Only my boyfriend complains sometimes when I'm in the bathroom but I thought it was just because it's how we naturally smell during our period. I've learned something good today so thank you.

No. 113968

Yo… I don't want to come across as rude but that is so extremely unhygienic. I go through around 5-6 tampons a day, if I use pads I go through the same amount. You are just going to have to suck it up and use more.

No. 113980

What kind of pads are you using though?
I only use like two maybe three pads a day on my period but I buy those nice Always Infinity with the gel core and they absorb a ton of blood before the top of it gets uncomfortable.
I've never had an UTI either.

No. 113981

I think anon uses 3-6 pads for her entire period, not just for a day.
Also yeah I use the same amount as you and am actually uti prone, but I've never gotten an infection from it.

I also do the toilet paper thing >>113947 mentioned on my heavier days though.

No. 114002

There are other ways to be intimate with someone. Are you asexual or just not into this guy?
You need to be aroused to have PIV, no wonder you're experiencing pain.

No. 114004

The fact you are never aroused = your entire problem with sex. Going in dry is going to hurt for anyone. If you were aroused your body would loosen and lubricate up. Have you ever been turned on before? It may be a hormonal imbalance or you are not attracted to your partner? I don't think you should hurt yourself for "intimacy" anon.

No. 114037


You can't fake it until you make it, you're fearing pain so you're unable to relax, unable to get aroused and you're tensing up and that's exacerbating whatever issues you had to begin with. Honestly don't put yourself through this, talk to your partner and put penetrative sex off the table until you're ready. If he loves you, he'll do whatever it takes to make you comfortable and confident to have sex again. If he whinges, kicks up a fuss or acts like it's your fault, then he's not worth having and you kick his ass to the curb.

I don’t mind hair on the pubic mound, but yeah sure, preferring clean shaved labia over pic related sure makes anyone a pedophile on this website.

Anyway, in general I don't think anyone should feel ashamed of their genitals. This includes men wrt penis size and foreskin. Making a hierarchy of privates isn't where it's at for me. I'm kind of an ugly-people-deserve-love-and-acceptance type though, so perhaps my thoughts are moot.

No. 114081

I‘m not the OP.
I do like other vulvas too and do find them pretty. It’s just like saying you like every single dish equally. I just don’t believe that there’s anything you do like more than others.
And as I said, my preferences don’t make me see other people or parts of them as unattractive or makes me treat them differently. (>>114073 for example is just really uncalled for, because the labia looks perfectly fine imo.) In fact, I don’t fucking care what other women’s vulvas look like if they’re comfortable with them. I just have an ideal for me (although not in a way that makes me want to change mine). And I think that’s what the original vulva envy anon wanted to express, too.

All vulvas are beautiful and deserve the same amount of love and appreciation tbh.

That being said, this whole topic would’ve been over much faster if you just had ignored the OP.

Like, the same way that one might say ‘I would like if my stomach was a bit slimmer/more muscular’ but it doesn’t bother them to the point of actually attempting to change the stomach they have? Why is that so incredibly hard to fathom?

questioning asexuality honestly, but I'm getting everything that can affect libido tested.
also if that's true, how can prostitutes have sex with gross dudes if you have to be aroused?

well we're using a boatload of lube. nah never been turned on before honestly. I know what the situation sounds like, but i'm not just having painful sex for him or anything. I only started having sex recently and we have PiV sex occasionally to check in and see where we're at or see where/quality of the pain so I can relay it to my gyno. He's a great dude and I'm glad I have someone I can trust to help me try and get through this. Obviously I don't want to be asexual. Recently found an issue with my thyroid that's developing, but I don't know if that can make someone feel completely asexual.

I do love myself. Read comment above. I'm the one initiating because I want to experiment with different positions/see if anything makes it better or if anything has gotten better. I've told him all my concerns and he's really sweet about it.

I'm just so happy my vaginismus was resolved. I was googling the pain and it can be consistent with banging your cervix (d/t not being aroused maybe?) or ovarian cysts (i have a history of them). Thanks for the concern though girls I appreciate it.

Loads of women browse subreddits for “god tier pussy” sure. Definitely not just bringing up your porn for kicks, because women totally sit around and discuss other women’s vaginas with photos to compare who better suits men’s porn fantasies. Much legit.

Shoving your sexuality in peoples faces because some mingers on twitter talk about analingus for attention doesn’t make it cute or woke to bring up your fave porno in casual conversation. Nobody is afraid of an asshole. It’s just that what you think is sexy and interesting is exactly the same as a 15 year old boy.

Vaginal health is such a nightmare. I felt like I had a UTI for 2+ years straight, and no one could tell me why and my tests kept coming back normal. After being shuffled around to different doctors that would just shrug their shoulders at me a urologist sent me to a physical therapist that dealt with women's issues. Turns out pelvic floor dysfunction was my issue (high tone to be specific, basically the physical therapist said "it feels like you're trying to break my finger" when examining me). All I've had to do is some minor stretching, and I almost instantly felt better. I have a set of dilators I'm slowly trying to use, but even just my fingers worked fine.

The fact that it was such a simple fix and it took years to figure out, even speaking to more than one gyno makes me so frustrated. Just feels like just when I think we have Women's Health figured out, something like this – something I had never even heard of in all of my years of trying to figure this out – was the problem. Took finding an ultra-specific specialist to say "pussy 2 tight gurl, you're basically permanently clenching"

idk, just wanted to throw it out there in case someone out there was experiencing something similar. pic related was exactly what I was feeling: desperately hoping for a positive uti result for years so I could just finally fix my issue with an antibiotic. ugh.

I've been getting brazilians regularly for the past year. The initial awkwardness never really fades, but just remember its their job and they see lady bits every day.

I WILL say, the first time (or if you wait a months between waxes) is always gonna hurt more than any regular appointments afterward. Be sure to let them know its your first time and they'll tailor their process to it. And for the love of god, DONT go to a nail salon to do it, most of the people at nail salons aren't professionally trained for waxing. Make sure their licenses are displayed or available on request.

No. 114301

I kind of enjoyed it (obviously not the waxing itself), my technician was super nice and I found the sessions would fly by because I would be focused on our conversation and the waxing (while painful) was kinda like background. it only took like 10 minutes. I just had to be careful not to be speaking when she would tank the strip because I was scared I'd lose control of my voice and accidentally yell. so I guess it hurt, but it's honestly not that bad at all. The most awkward part is taking your pants off in front of them lol. once you're on the table it all goes quick and they're just doing their job and you can chatter/have them talk to distract you.

Update: I used the Organicup for the first time today.
Here's what I learned.

1. I bleed way more than I thought.
The first time I entered in the cup it must've not unfolded properly. I couldn't tell cause my fingers wouldn't fit in with it as it was too deep. Anyways, I bled through a lot. Honestly the cup filled up too and was half full, so it did it's job despite the mess.

2. The recommended C-fold the instructions recommended hurts and is hard to enter.
I discovered the push method works much better. I attached the video for anyone interested.

3. It's such a pain to get out. If I can reach the cup to pinch it, then it's too low (and the stem sticks out).
If the cups too deep I can't reach it without yanking on it (feels like a vacuum cleaner attached to my cervix).

4. Despite everything, I am converted now. Tampons good bye, cups for life. When it's entered right - it's honestly perfect. I can't feel it. It stores so much blood and it doesn't smell. I don't have to change it as often and when I need to re-enter it, it's not impossibly dry. I'm excited I don't need to blow cash on tampons anymore (especially since I have a irregular every 2 week cycle). Also it's better for the environment. I can't believe the amount of waste we produce from tampons and sanitary products alone.

Is it normal or possible to have moles on your inner labia? I didn’t think you could get one on that type of skin but I’ve got a tiny, non raised dot of pigment on my left labia minora that shocked me when I was examining down there to check for things like this in the first place. I think I saw it before when I was a teenager and ended up forgetting but idk if I made that memory up since it’s been several years.

I’ve also never had a monthly period, I would skip 3 or 4 months and now it’s 1-2 which I took blood tests for and everything came back normal. The doctor told me some women just have unexplained irregular cycles and he didn’t seem dismissive but I don’t know what to believe. I don’t have PCOS symptoms, I’m not an athlete, I’m average weight for my height so what do?

No. 114988

I have a mole on the hood of my clit, where my inner labia meets my outer labia and no gyno has ever said anything about it so I guess it just happens. If you’re too unsure or it keeps growing I’d definitely see a doctor though.

And I also have a very irregular period, too. In 16 years I’ve had less than 10 4-week-cycles and I don’t show any other irregular symptoms either.
I am, however, quite thin (only close to being underweight though) and not living a healthy lifestyle at all, so that might be it for me.

How do I shave my pubic area without causing little red blood spots? This only happens on the front area but not underneath my vagina near my lips. I use conditioner on my legs to shave, would it be okay to put conditioner on my pube area? Obviously I wouldn't put it underneath. I just want a clean shave!

Period stuff. I never really got clots until a few years ago (I'm 27) and they are HUGE! Seriously, I just bled through a super tampon in 1-2 hours and when I pulled it out there was a gigantic clot that wrapped around the whole tampon. This happens every period and I sometimes have periods where I use 10-25 super tampons a day for 2 days (I'm serious. One period I bled through them in less than an hour for at least 8 hours straight).

It doesn't really hurt too bad, the worst part is I get bad mid back pain, which I tried looking up info on but it seems that women normally have low back pain. I don't have pain in my low back, only in my mid back. And I get bad digestive issues but I have IBS so I just thought the period made it extra bad.

I'm just getting worried because I was reading online and this is supposedly not normal. I read that on a normal period women only have 2-3 TABLESPOONS of blood for the entire period????? WTF? Even when I was a teenager I started using super tampons. And clots bigger than a quarter are also abnormal? I really am getting scared because my mom had to get a hysterectomy when she was 40ish because she had similar issues for years and ended up having her period for months straight, extremely heavy.

Should I go to my doctor? Or do you ladies think that I'm overreacting and Dr Google is just making it worse?

Don't shave that part totally. That's really the only way to avoid those nasty bumps. A bit of hair looks better than a bunch of pus filled boils on your mons. I don't use a razor on my VULVA or pubic area at all because of this, I trim it up with scissors or a trimmer. I only use a razor in the bikini area so that pubes aren't sticking out of my underwear. An easy way to thin out the hair on the mons is to shave with the hair instead of against it.

Also can we all as women stop referring to our entire genital region as our "vagina"? This shit is so annoying to me like…your vagina is a very specific part of your crotch and it is on THE INSIDE. Call it a pussy, cunt, vulva, lips…something! But don't call the outside area your vagina.

Truth be told anon, I haven't figured out the trick to banishing them completely either. What does work for me though, is using tiny bikini razors (pic related) and trimming first. Shave with the grain. I use coconut oil, but there are different options. After shaving I use something with alcohol to disinfect the open follicles and moisturize as well. It's not perfect but has helped.
I know it's "dangerous" but to be honest I just use hair removal cream and shave to touch up, it takes a while to grow back and I don't get ingrown hairs.
No matter what you choose for hair removal it's a lot easier to deal with if you trim first. And cleaning the area and the razor first probably helps prevent ingrown hairs.

I usually only shave the outer few centimeters on either side of my pubes but when I do, I use this method and I don't get bumps at all:

-exfoliate the area first using a rough washcloth or shower brush
-use a new razor every time (or as close to new as possible. If I've used the razor more than 3x on other parts of my body I will use a new razor and shave my pubes first so they get the sharpest of the blade.)
-use shaving cream or conditioner every time
-swab the area with alcohol and a cotton ball immediately after exiting the shower.

I trim the rest of my pubes with hair clippers… lol

Pubic hair struggles..
I'm hairy af specially down there. Last year I gave up and started laser hair removal. IT IS FANTASTIC. The hair's gone and my skin's gotten ridiculously smooth. It is probably the best decision I've made in the past five years and I figured I should share it so more people would know about the option being available. It can be expensive but it's really worth it. No more razor burns, bumps, itching, ingrown hair or any other shaving/waxing related problems. It hurts, specially around the clit and anus area (I know not everyone has hair growing around their buttholes but still). I guess it is similar to getting a Brazilian for the first time. But once it's done it's done.
To be honest it has helped my self confidence and made me more comfortable with my femininity. So yeah 10/10. If you're curious definitely give it a try. For me it worths every dollar.

On the topic of shaving: does anybody remember this cow named Asha?
I remember reading in one of her threads and somebody posted that she likely has some illness (can't remember the name) that makes it difficult for her hair to break through her skin and therefore her body was littered with ingrowns.
I fear that I have the same thing.

My armpits are fine, on my legs it's also still somewhat okay, but regarding my pubic her it's so bad, that I don't dare to shave it at all.
I'm "blessed" with being extremely hairy, so the hair on my inner thighs, around my crotch is also already very pube like and whenever I shave, 2 days later it's so itchy that I can barely keep from scratching in public and not a single hair breaks through. Like there's always at least 30 little pimples that contain a hair. Sometimes I can't pop them to free it and it turns into a nasty big bumb and scar.

I already tried so much: shaving cream, normal shaving, shaving foam, shaving gel, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, shaving dry; then afterwards different lotions, baby powder, toner, aloe gel,… I also tried whether to exfoliate before or afterwards, but nothing helps.
Maybe waxing would be better, but I'm too much of a chicken for that.

God, I haven't shaved in over a month and I keep getting ingrown hairs. Could their be another reason why? Or is it just from the random hairs that fall out?
It's only one or two at a time and usually only on the right side of my pubic area. Popping the ingrown hairs feels so weird, like there's a bit more pus still in there I'm not squeezing out, but it usually goes away a day or two after I get it to pop instead of get bigger.
Also I have a slightly itchy area where my clitoris is, the thing is I'm able to scrape some dead skin off every couple days. I happen to have psoriasis and my crotch used to be really itchy and flaky over 8 years ago, it slowly went away out of nowhere. I was wondering if that might be a reason why? My gyno has never said anything was wrong with how my pubic area looked.

From my knowledge it's either folliculitis or psoriasis.

since some anons are on the shaving topic: if u get razor bumps or ingrown hairs easily i have found that using peppermint oil before u shave is a good idea. just dont get it u kno… on ur actual vagina its hell.

i also like to mix a lil bit of shaving gel, water and soap while to use while i shave.

using aloe (like REAL plant aloe) on your coochie after shaving is really a life saver also.

fellow anon with psoriasis. i have to shave VERY often cuz of the ingrown hairs. it's prob flaring up cuz of sweat depending on the weather where u live. i have found also it's easier to tweeze out the ingrown hair (if possible) then pop it. not recommended when ur pubic hair is still super short tho.

buy some peppermint oil. apply it before u shave, wash it off in the shower and after you shave and wash it off with soap in the shower. repeat it a few times after u shave too.

Alright, I should probably just go to a doctor but I figured I'd see if any anons have advice. About 3 months ago I was forcefully penetrated against my will (not technically rape since it wasn't a penis) and it tore the skin at the bottom of my vaginal opening. It healed fine, and two weeks later I had sex with my long distance boyfriend who visited me after my assault. It tore back open. Five weeks later I moved across country to be with him. The first time we had sex it ripped back open and bled for about 20 minutes. After that it kind of just kept tearing slightly every time we had sex. Finally I got to the point where I was like okay, no sex for a week. It healed. Had sex, it ripped again. Waited another week. Still tearing open. I had a pelvic exam before I moved and the doctor didn't say anything so it must have looked okay when she was down there, but when I look with a mirror now it looks like a huge rip, similar to when you tear during childbirth. I didn't think it was a big deal but my boyfriend was horrified when I asked him to look. I'm at my wits end; I read that new mothers have to wait 6 weeks if they have tearing but that seems extreme and I'd really rather not wait six weeks. I already waited 5 and it felt like ages. Do any other anons have experience with this? My mom suggested I might need a stitch but it heals fine by itself if I leave it alone. I hope someone has a suggestion, I'm desperate.

Sorry if that was gross.

Thanks for the responses. I was told by police that it's technically sexual assault and not rape because he didn't use his penis. I did not press charges because I didn't have time since I was in the process of moving, but also because I felt the police were downplaying what happened. I feel very guilty about it.

I also feel very discouraged to see a doctor. When I was assaulted he also forced oral on me (him performing it, not me), so I decided to get tested for stds while I was at the doctor. It was not covered by my insurance. I finally paid off the bills last night, almost $500 for the blood work alone. I have no faith in police or doctors at this point. I simply can't afford to go to a doctor anytime soon.

I feel like I always have a UTI or I'm on the verge of one. I have tried D-mannose, probiotics, cranberry pills, AZO, etc. Nothing works. This didn't start up until I became sexually active with my current bf. Am I allergic to his dick or something? We both shower/freshen up and pee before and after sex, I only wear cotton underwear and keep myself dry, and we are both extremely clean, so I'm not sure what bacteria is consistently getting up there??? My gyn said that I'm just naturally prone to UTIs and she said I should pop nitrofurantoin after intercourse.

I don't want to be dependent on antibiotics for the rest of my life, but this is honestly debilitating. Is there anything else I can do?

No. 115548

I have the same problem, anon. I started making my boyfriend wash his hands every time we fool around and it's helped a little bit. I haven't had a uti in a few weeks, I think the hand washing helps. That and I take two azos everyday. My doctor also suggested taking an antibiotic after each sexual encounter but that seems really overkill. What if we have sex daily or twice a day? That's a lot of crap to ingest.

You said you were fine with your other boyfriends, right? I was thinking maybe your bf isn't washing as well as you think he is. Also, this is obvious, but don't let him put his dick anywhere near your ass, not your asscrack, nothing. Just keep him away and if you have to try showering with him and see if he's doing a thorough job. One person I was with insisted he was cleaning, but when I watched him he merely rinsed his penis with water for like 2 seconds even though the rest of him was very clean and washed. You never know what's going on in there. Also make sure your bf's underwear are clean. That helped me as well as the obsessive hand washing.

No. 115551

I was with a guy who would give me UTIs. No sugar added cranberry juice was my go to. Just chug like three big glasses a day. Avoid sugar and alcohol as that will make a uti worse. A warm wash rag can help alleviate that "I have to pee" sensation.

As someone who has genital herpes (cold sores there, basically) you don't need to freak out like that. If you really got infected with herpes you'd see it right away, and it hurts. Most people have herpes and don't show symptoms actually.

his mom prolly gave it to him during birth, don't worry. as the other anon said, most people have latent oral herpes due to childbirth but if you had it, you'd have your 1st outbreak by now (assuming you're over 18).

My inner labia is probably less than a centimetre long I'm an innie. The only way that I've ever enjoyed masturbating is by rubbing my vulva through my panties. I stopped because I got anxious that maybe that's why I have any labia protruding at all. Once I found out a lot of girls including other virgins who have really long labia artist were in that way I realised that's retarded. My question I really need help with is I'm still scared to keep rubbing so is there any way that continuously rubbing my vulva really roughly and fast is going to lengthen my labia?? What do I search to find sources that can reassure me or inform me because I don't even know what to search take it any relevant information

No. 117085

If you were actually permanently stretching your labia it would hurt and be extremely uncomfortable. Look up labia stretching, people do it in African countries and it's a painful process.
There is nothing wrong with visible inner labia. Most of the women in porn are not naturally innies, the majority have had labiaplasty, so don't compare yourself to them

No. 117101

I can't find any answers on this, but has anyone found that the placement of your pubic bones limits how big of a penis you guys can fit inside of you? Like, my pubic bones (the bones on like, either side of your vagina opening) severely limit the size of what can be put inside. They're really weirdly close together.

Like, not an issue with the vagina, but the bone placement.

No. 117102

man, why the fuck is the vulva/vagina/labia always being treated like some mystical element with magical abilities. if you continuously rub any other skin flap on your body, does it lengthen? jfc do you guys listen to yourselves?

Considering your pelvis should be able to have a baby going through it I'm going to guess no.

The pelvic ligaments and bones loosen when you're pregnant and the pubic symphysis separates to allow a baby through. Not comparable to a person that isn't pregnant and has never been.

No. 117111

I don't masturbate much but my inner labia has grown a little bit over the past few years (i'm 27).

I don't think it has anything to do with whether or not you touch it though.

I think it's more about hormones and how they change with aging.

I have the same issues and have the same problem with pain in certain positions and I found that it's better when i'm flat on my back or stomach but if i'm at an angle with my legs lifted up it hurts too bad.
maybe see if you can go slow trying out certain positions to see if one type will be okay but if nothing is working i would just recommend using toys and things besides penetration and eventually u might be able to ease back into it

What does BV smell like? I feel like I'm smelling sort of funny compared to usual, but it didn't show up on my test at the doctor. However, I was spotting, so maybe it did effect the result, the yeast result looked like a flat out negative though. I treated for yeast already so it's not that and it didn't look yeasty either to me or the doctor.
I'm starting to think that I just get low grade BV regularly and especially after treating yeast, so I wanted to know if anyone gets it, what it looks/smells like, how they manage it, etc. I have leftover medicine for it but no applicators, I'm trying a little bit to see if I notice any changes.

I missed my period for a week and also had a really weird sensitivity in my boobs, even that early. Take a pink dye cheap test when you are 1 week late, they are better than the expensive tests

For those of you with an iud, I've just seen a photo of the size of it in an actual uterus and it's really put me off getting it done. I'm really freaked out by the idea of getting it inserted and also I have seriously rough cervix thumping sex so I'm afraid it'll cause me pain during or after sex, or that it'll accidentally get pulled out or some shit

I had an IUD a few years ago, getting it inserted didn't hurt at all but as soon as I got home and sat down, I felt like I'd been stabbed and started bleeding. I had it taken out a week after that, the bleeding didn't stop and the pain was getting worse.

Male doctor said it was normal, but a nurse gave me codeine and some of those huge pads for women who've just given birth. It didn't feel normal to me, but idk.

Has anyone else had their PMS symptoms change over time?

Up until 18 my boobs got extremely tender around my period and I never had cramps. Eventually one day, a switch flipped and my boobs don’t get tender anymore. I bloat and get crampy now. I have the copper IUD but even before I got it at 19, I noticed that my period symptoms changed and became more of an annoyance due to the water retention and the cramps.

I tried looking it up but it’s hard to go through the articles about general PMS symptoms to find what I’m looking for. I’ve heard that PMS is rougher for women in their 20s but that doesn’t explain why I stopped having tender boobs during each cycle. Does anyone have any insight on this by chance?

No. 118001

Is it true or not that some woman just don't have regular cycles? I've never had a once-per-month period, it's always skipped 2-3 and every blood test I've had that included iron/thyroid/hormone stuff came back within normal range and one of the doctors I saw said not every woman has it exactly once a month. But he was 1) a dude, 2) not that experienced (he was at my clinic as part of training and was fairly young but still quite older than me) 3) not a gyno. Sometimes I think it might be an issue if I want to have children because doesn't that mean I'm not ovulating on those skipped months?

No. 118008

Yes, some women have (very) irregular cycles. Can be a hormonal unbalance, or your body is just wired like that. It can also be linked to a mental trauma. Sometimes after your first child it suddenly changes to regular cycles.
If you don't have any period in a month, then you didn't ovulate.
I do know a a lady who had 3 children, and she has her period every 40 days. Might be related, she has very long pregnancy every time (nearly a month more than a normal pregnancy).

I wanna start shaving my pubes. Any advice so i don’t accidentally cut myself or make it itchy down there?

Last time I tried it, it got super itchy and I kept discharging because my vagina was irritated. Especially when the stubble started to grow in. Last time was the first and only time I ever altered body hair down there.

She's kinda old, if she had a that long pregnancy these days most doctors would have pushed her to be induced. No problem with any of the babies, but she told me she was sick of being pregnant… There's no typical pregnancy, and no typical baby imo. If you actually get pregnant, tell your gyno about your long cycle. You should track them when you try to concieve (or even before) so you have some data, because most doctor won't trust your memory and won't believe you if you don't. Maybe try those fertility tracker methods (temperature +self cervical check just one is not enough) to know exactly when you ovulate. I'm not an expert though.

Has anybody used female condoms for period sex? I'm thinking about trying it out, but buying them requires a prescription.

It's not abnormal, but it isn't recommended because it doesn't let the area breathe. [Source: https://www.womansworld.com/posts/wear-panty-liners-every-day-129580] However, if you don't have any problems wearing them every day, then it is perfectly fine. It's best to stick to cotton liners without added scents, but again if what you use works for you that's what matters.

They stay in place unless I'm wearing very loose panties or synthetic panties. Normal cotton or modal panties keep them in place for running, sleeping, etc. One thing to make sure of is that the gusset in your panties is wide enough. If it doesn't cover your whole vulva sans liner, you're going to have a bad time with a liner.

Your boyfriend tearing your vagina isn't normal anon. That happens when you give birth. Your body should relax and lube itself up to allow for entry without tearing, this is for the other anon too with possible tearing. Are these guys just jamming it in dry with no foreplay? You need lube at the very least if these guys are not putting in any effort to get you loosened up first. But really they need to spend time getting you relaxed and comfortable - and if you are expecting pain it will be difficult to relax.

sorry, i didn't mention the severity of the issue. it's not really a tear, like open flesh, more like tiny micro tears due to friction. i guess it is due to not being super soaking wet, but in my case i hardly am crazy horny, if at all. any tips for that?

This happened to me one time.

That does seem unusual, your hormones were probably doing something unusual for you. You should see your obgyn about this if you're trying to conceive. There are a number of things they can do.

water-based lube is your friend. if you're uncomfortable breaking that out, the key is definitely to try to relax. if you're still a virgin, expect some discomfort your first time, but it really is about trying to keep your muscles as relaxed as possible. muscle tension from being nervous can really hinder your ability to enjoy it.

If someone is using the bathroom when I realize I need to change it, I literally have to change my clothes just because I’m five minutes too late. I have a copper IUD which I think has made it a little heavier, but it’s always been bad. I’ve stained every set of sheets I’ve owned, I’ve bled on literally all my pants, the only underwear that’s safe are ones I specifically only wear when I know it’s safe. I can’t have sex at all on my period because I bleed through towels and stain the mattress AND neither me nor my partner can feel anything. I’ve stained the bathroom matts, the carpet on the way to the bathroom.. because I basically have to shower after getting up in the morning cuz I’m covered in blood and can’t get to cleaning the floors fast enough lmao.

I don't have it, but a friend does, and I want to know a bit more about what she's going through to help in any way I can.

I know a bit about the medical stuff behind it, but what are some things that help and what are somethings that definitely don't?

No. 119598

I’m not overweight or underweight. My diet is currently shit lmao but even when it was a LOT better, my period was the same. I even got work done to see if there’s something wrong with me causing it but everything came back normal.

No. 119612

you should try a menstrual cup, the avg capacity of a super tampon is around 10ml but cups generally hold around 25-30ml of fluid. i’m pretty sure you can even get ones which hold around 45ml.

No. 119651

Ive thought about it but I’m kinda just freaked out by the whole thing. It took me years to be okay using tampons, another new product seems just as overwhelming to me? I’m all around uncomfy with fiddling around down there and I’ve heard it can take time to learn how to place it properly

No. 119653

As someone with a heavy flow I 100% recommend the cup. It worth learning how to use it as overwhelming as it might be. I put it off ages and honestly regret it. You'll have your period for a huge chunk of your life so you might as well make it easier for yourself. It's worth it.

No. 119974

Maybe a dumb question but my period came early, I'm assuming the date it happened is the new date my period will start on from now on..?

No. 119978

Idk if you're a child but it doesn't come on the same date every month. 28-31 days in a month. Periods usually start between 21-30 days for those with a regular cycle. If yours is around 30 days it means your next one may be closer to the new date. Stress and health affects the startdate too. Mine has never been completely exact.

No. 119989

Are you on the pill? I am and mine is pretty regular I can always count 4 days back from my next tablet, but stress and diet can have fluctuations.

If you're looking to start on to the pill for the first time iirc you take it the first day you bleed.

No. 119995

Is it normal to have long periods? I'll spot for 3 days before my period (I don't have any symptoms aside from this spotting), have 4 days that's my "actual" period, and then another 3-4 days of spotting.

No. 120039

can any anons break down for me the basics of grooming your pubic hair? i never really found a reason to trim/shave or anything and now i'm curious and want to try. my main question is what exactly is the most common thing to do. do most women shave their pubic hair off completely or mostly trim it? i have some hair growing in my inner labia so i don't think shaving only would be a good idea or at least only on the outer edges, but even when it comes to shaving i'm a bit clueless. do i just buy a safety razor and go at it the same way i do my armpits (just with soap and water) or do i need to do something else as well? sorry for the dumb questions, i don't really have many people in real life i could ask this to.

No. 120040

Everyone does it differently but I've got my method down to an art so I can shave every 2nd day and not get ingrowns/irritation/itchiness
>hair on the labia is so soft and easy to shave I do it every day, soap and water is enough and I prefer that to shaving cream
>it's also possible to shave slightly into the inside of the lip if the hair goes there, it's never bothered my skin at all
>pull the skin taught when you do it, squatting makes it easier or just standing up
>hair on the mons is coarse and hard to shave, use shaving cream.
>never shave against the grain (the direction of the hair, it goes inwards and meets at the top of the slit) because it hurts and irritates the skin badly
>shaving with the grain (inwards/downwards) is the safest way to avoid irritation
>shaving horizontally to the grain also works, I do it once with the grain then again horizontally to get a closer shave
>consider not shaving the centre area at all, it's by far the most easily irritated skin. I leave a patch and trim it
>pretty much any razor works as long as it isn't blunt, I'd say get a nice one but honestly I've used cheap as shit disposable razors for men without even a strip of soap on it and it was great
>it will probably be itchy for a while even if you do it perfectly, it goes away after a while

No. 120041

I vaguely remember my period being regular though but this time it came a week and a half early. But I'm thinking stress and poor nutrition may have caused it..

No. 120051

>all this effort instead of making a pass with an electric trimmer once a month.
You're fucking up, anon.

No. 120052

I second most of this.
Few things I do differently:
>shaving against the grain doesn’t bother me/my skin too much
>I don’t use shaving cream or gel at all, as it usually irritates my skin a lot, instead I’ll use regular hair conditioner on the mons and let it ‘soak’ a few moments before shaving
>men’s disposable razors (3 blades or less) work best for me (Gillette Venus and cheap alternatives were by far the worst and I always got irritated skin, even when using fresh blades)

Another few things:
>let my razor sit in some isopropyl alcohol for a minute or so before shaving
>always do it before going to bed so I can avoid wearing (tight) underwear (but if you have to wear some, use something light and made of cotton)
>let the area air dry and use skin- and wound-friendly desinfectant afterwards
>a little while after shaving I’ll use some hazelnut or coconut oil on the area
>when it’s really hot I’ll use baby powder in my bikini area in the morning because I’ll tend to get irritations from sweat and friction there

So I've never bothered taking care of the skin on my lips because it's easy to overlook but since I started wearing makeup I find that I can't wear lipstick without it REALLY bringing out all the lines I have, not granny pout lines around my mouthh but it's like permanently dry lips (I used to peel them a lot and they're naturally super dry without balm). Any way to reverse this? My current plan is moisturising them and exfoliating the dead layers off because I get the urge to bite them and it's slow going.

No. 120098

I literally hate shaving but when I do, I use coconut oil instead of shaving cream and I avoid doing it in the shower, like the only water needed is to rinse off the razor. Squatting over a mirror helps me get everything. I go with and against the grain, just don’t go over the same area too many times. I usually leave a triangle of fuzz up too because it gets irritated sooooo easily, I trim it with a trimmer meant for facial hair lol. After, I’ll take a shower and rinse really well, pat dry, and use a little bit of coconut oil to keep the area happy. I’ve never had an issue doing it this way. But I have a “fat pussy” so stubble rubs me in all the wrong places lmao I usually just go full bush or trim it, it’s like twice a year that I shave at all.

a week ago I got my period a week and a half early, figured it was from stress and other things but now I've also had brown shit coming out of me for the past few days already. I don't usually have a period for a whole week and the brown stuff is weird.. some of it is thick and some is watery.

No. 120372

It's just tissue from your womb mixed with mucus and old blood. Trying to think how the best way to describe it is, is it sometimes like little blobs and gobbets and also a bit like viscous snot or phlegm, but brown? Does it spread out into a little brownish slime streak on the paper when wiping after going for a pee?

It's very normal anyway, this used to be what every breakthrough period I had while on the mini pill looked like (no bright red fresh blood at all) and now this stuff is what the end of my periods look like I'm off hormonal contraception. My personal theory is it's what older shed endometrial tissue looks like if it's been hanging around for a while and has had a chance to oxidize (go brown).

Hey, sometimes periods do just be like that. The more I read about it and hang out in female spaces the more I learn about how wild each woman's menstrual cycle can be. Did you know doctors only consider the absence of a period to be notable if it's been 90 days since your last menses? When I read that little factoid my mind was a bit blown, that's literally like, a quarter of a year lol, anything under that can be considered within "normal range" apparently

I think I have a cut on my labia minora as a result of my boyfriend using a lil too much teeth while sucking on it.

Does anyone else feel a tingling on the bottoms of their feet when they masturbate?

I get so distracted by this weird feeling in my feet. It's like that tingly, almost burn-y sensation you get when you first move your foot after it's been asleep. It's not pleasant or sexy to me– it just makes it hard to focus on masturbating.

Shit like this is why porn infuriates me. Vaginas are not supposed to be pretty, and I hate that porn has created an unreasonable expectation that vaginas be 100% pink and have no minora showing. Ridiculous.

Your vagina is fine, anon. Any guy who bitches about what your fucking junk looks like needs to be dumped asap.

Also, hemorrhoids are common and incurable. If it's not bleeding, painful, or obstructing anything, don't worry about it. I would advise against anal sex if you have hemorrhoids. Anal sex is a meme invented by men anyway, and is always more pleasurable for them than it is for women. Plus it's unsanitary and requires a lot of preparation on the reciever's part.

No. 120435

>Does anyone else feel a tingling on the bottoms of their feet when they masturbate?

Yep, I know exactly what you're talking about. Like firey pins and needles. I think it's because we unconsciously tense our muscles during sexual pleasure, so you're feeling the effects of cutting off your own blood supply in your legs. Apparently this is why you should consciously learn to relax your legs when dabbing the Devil's doorbell, I've seen a lot of Cosmo-esque advice suggesting it makes your orgasms better.

well my hemorrhoid is uncomfortable but when I finally went to the doctor she told me it's a skintag and didn't do anything besides telling me to put vaseline on it so I guess that hemorrhoid is my partner for life now lol. I've already had it for years as well.

No. 120462

random but i used to really tense my legs up when i would masturbate and i got really bad charlie horses all the time that would completely ruin the moment. i taught myself to focus the tension to my glutes and it feels great (to me) and makes you feel like you had an ass workout afterward lmao.

So I've had a mole on the outside of my labia majora for years. I can't remember how long, it's been there for ages. I shaved off all my pubes today for the first time in quite some time and… I think the mole grew some? Of course googling it only beings back CANCER CANCER CANCER and I can't deny that it's weird to have a mole down there. It's got me all anxious because it's not a flat mole, plus I can't go to the doctor. My health insurance isn't that good. Would Planned Parenthood look at this kind of thing? I know if they end up referring me elsewhere I'm still screwed (because, again, insurance). Or am I just worrying for nothing????? Ugh

No. 121396

I have one next to my vagina, too, that worries me sometimes. Growth itself isn't indicative yet of anything bad. I feel you though and it's very stressful to think about and the internet only amplifies that fear. I'm sorry that you can't ask for help because of insurance. Did it change otherwise in appearance? Like shape/colour/border? If not, I'd say you're good. Even wonky, lifted moles are usually healthy. It just sucks if you can't get them checked and have some relief. It's also normal to have moles literally anywhere on the body.
Asking PP for help sounds like a great idea!
You could also get a friend's opinion if you dare and if it could help for starters as a non-professional first opinion and maybe to vent some of your frustration.
Good luck and I'm hugging you from afar!

No. 121400

Thanks for the kind words, anon, I really appreciate it. Color hasn't changed on it as far as I can remember, and while I know color isn't really indicative one way or another, it's more pink than brown. I just feel like it's grown in size a bit, like… oblong? It's always been an irregular mole, so I feel unsure about how far I should read into its shape. And I did have my husband look at it and he thinks it's a little bigger too (and honestly I think that's what has me all anxious. Like… if someone else can actually acknowledge that it's different, ahh!!) I know I really have nothing to lose by requesting a PP appointment, so I guess I'll work up the nerve to make one!

No. 121470

Do you think it could be a skin tag? That's a common place to get them, the friction from your underwear or from your labia rubbing can cause them.

Idk if this is the right thread but I’m an ex fatty. I’m also part middle eastern so I already have kind of dull olive skin.. the skin around my vag lips/upper inner thigh is dark and discoloured from rubbing so much for so long.. is there anything safe I can do to help rejuvenate the skin there and brighten it?? Almost makes me look dirty when I’m fully shaved :(

No. 121638

I guess there's the tiny chance that it's a skin tag and I'd really be happy to learn that it is, but I'm pretty certain it's a mole. It's got volume to it and it's oblong with weird edges. I think my biggest indicator is, like… they say you should get a mole looked at if it's the size of a pencil eraser? And this is pretty darn close to that size. But I do have a PP appointment scheduled for tomorrow morning! I know they won't be able to do anything but look at it and give me an assessment, but it's a start. I have really bad insurance so I don't know what I'll do if I need to go further with it, but… idk. I don't know! One step at a time, I guess.

No. 121647

I would also like to know if anons have suggestions. I've been looking at niacinamide creams for intimate areas and wondering if they work?
I get a lot of results for papaya soap too but I've a feeling it's just a physical exfoliant.
I think though, some darkness is inevitable and normal. I'm whitest white with no friction down there and I'm not even sexually active right now - but still have slightly dingy, dark fanny skin. So if there are no suggestions, it's probably worth us both just coming to terms with it.

No. 121661

Your skin is really sensitive there, even if bleaching creams work it's probably not the best idea. I've always been self-conscious about my skin being darker in that area but no one I've been intimate with has cared or even noticed until I pointed it out. Anyone who thinks it's gross is probably just a creep anyway.

You guys were really supportive and I really appreciated it, so here's my follow up if there's any interest! Doctor said it was just a skin tag and I am SO relieved. She said it was nothing to worry about health-wise, but if it gets irritated because of its size, my pcp would probably have something to prescribe for it to help it go away.

I am so thankful for Planned Parenthood as a resource for this kind of thing. They're so well trained on how to make you feel comfortable and they really do take care of you. Thank you, PP! I'll pay it forward when I get financially stable!

DEFINITELY agree with other anons, Always Infinity. I recommend the extra heavy/overnight pad to anyone who has a very heavy flow like myself. If someone isn't using this brand and is having issues (like I did) with leaking and a heavy flow. I'd 100% recommend it.

While i'm here do any anons have lube suggestions for someone who has an allergy/sensitive problem? I have a sensitivity (possible allergy) to lube and no luck on a replacement. Any reputable brands?

I also only bleed for 2 days. I don't know what to put this change down to, I turned 30 this year, am not sexually active or on birth control

Anyone know if this is a '30s' thing? In a way light and short periods are ideal but it's the change that makes me wonder. Can't afford to go to doc right now and my towns only (male) doc is usually dismissive of women and womens issues

I can't even remember where I was reading it, but I was reading about natural cycles of periods. I've been on the pill for over a decade with few breaks and am curious about my presumed fertility levels. I read that the body can naturally slow your cycle, thereby preserving release of your egg. It probably is a normal thing since you're not on birth control. A concern I have is that I'm regulating my cycles too much.

has anyone here ever passed a decidual cast before? it happened to me today for the first time and it was the most painful, traumatic moment of my life. i felt like i was birthing an egg sized thing, paired with the most intense period pain i have ever felt. it was followed about 10 mins later with a blood clot that was the size of my hand. now i'm still experiencing quite bad period pain but nowhere near what it was before getting that thing out. i've also had the heaviest flow that i've ever had (filling up a night time pad every couple of hours). am i going to die? i'm going to the drs tomorrow but the feeling of having to birth that thing out on the toilet was so freaky and painful. :(

No. 121905

I've shed parts of one, but not the whole entire thing in one go. I remember a lot of pain, different pain than usual (like, cervix-y? I'd hazard a guess as to it being what the beginning of contractions feels like tbh, it happens sometimes when I pass a really large clot, too), then freaking the fuck out when I went to the toilet to go sort myself out and finding whatever the fuck it was, lmao. A photo and a flurry of "holy fuck, am I dying???" texts to my mum later, she told me it was probably parts of a decidual cast.

I can't tell you whether increased flow/clots and pain is normal, because I have PCOS and ?endo/adeno, and super overnight pads on the hourly and bad pain is my usual, but you're probably not dying. It's a good idea to see your doctor though, just to get checked out, and to talk about it. It's absolutely really freaky, I empathise with you there.

If the pain and bleeding get appreciably worse I think you should consider more urgent medical attention, though. In the mean time, just look after yourself anon! Get a hot water bottle/other heating method of your choice, some painkillers, some chocolate, a cup of tea maybe? Do some of that good good self care.

No. 121908

thanks anon, i'm feeling a lot better now after some strong af painkillers, hot water bottle and new season of mindhunter! i seem to have finished passing the big clot stuff now so i'm less on edge. the pain really was insane! it was defo inside my vagina pain which was new to me, and it felt like i had super bad trapped wind in my stomach just before that came in waves so i guess it is like contractions. freaky stuff!!! the joy of being a woman

No. 121922

hi i'm original anon that posted about birthing one of those things. google tells me it can come from the pill, pcos, endometriosis and cancer of the uterus. i'm not on the pill and not diagnosed with any of the latter but i have suspected i have pcos for some time as i have had issues with fluctuating weight in the past and i'm super hairy (on my chin and neck, sideburns and tummy. sometimes on my boobs too. lucky me!) i also have had period pains so bad before that i've been vomiting from the pain or almost fainted if i stood up too quick with them. i know there are other symptoms so i don't want to self diagnose, but i'm going to mention it to the doctor today so hopefully they can do tests or whatever to find out!
me and my boyfriend use condoms religiously right now as i have been avoiding the pill due to one making me really crazy for the couple of months i took it around a year ago, but i'm hoping to go back on it to make things easier. i was really freaked out though and genuinely thought i miscarried when it came out cos it just looked like a bloody lump of tissue, followed by really heavy blood and big, beefy clots. i really wouldn't wish the experience on anyone! i'm just worried this is going to be a regular occurence during my periods now and i don't think i could handle that pain again without heavy drugs and i try to avoid super strong pain meds due to addiction issues in the past. i still have cramps today so that's over 5 days of pain now (i usually just have pain on the first day of my period) so it is a little out of character, but my doctor is a super nice and understanding lady so hopefully i will get some answers and help today! sorry for the massive post, this has been a super weird experience as i don't have a lot of female friends to run these things by!

ugh, end me. I guess this is half vagina related, but my problem started there. I've been so ITCHY the last two days, but, like… it's migrating around my body? I thought it was excessive itch from my shaved pubes growing back in, but when I got a mirror, I saw two tiny white bumps on my labia. I thought they might be ingrown hairs, but I've since gotten individual itchy bumps on my lip (thought it was a cold sore), behind my ear lobe, on a knuckle, inside my other ear canal (??), and now I'm laying here in bed with an itchy was. What the fuuuuck. Google isn't helping me at all, either. Fortunately it seems like a specific area is only itching for a 24 hour period? But I don't have the money to go to the doctor. I just want the itching to stop.

No. 122323

scabies maybe?

No. 122325

You know, I was wondering if it was this. I won't discount it, but I'm not seeing any "trails" on my skin, plus my husband hasn't been dealing with any itchy bumps.

After sleeping on it, I'm wondering if I'm just dealing with an allergic rash. The bumps are reminiscent of the after effects of my last case of poison oak. Like, I got little bumps on my lip and genitals then, too, despite doing the appropriate cleaning at the first sign of poison oak. My body is stupidly sensitive that way. It just really wigs me out that this all started on my vag, you know?? I have no reason to have an std or something, but wtf

No. 122328

Why do I just smell bad sometimes?? There are days when my underwear just stinks, but it’s not a fishy odor. It’s like ammonia but… not pee, because I know I wipe correctly. And it’s never coupled with unusual discharge. It also doesn’t seem to happen when I don’t wear underwear? Is it possible my vagina just needs to “breathe” sometimes?

No. 122329

it's your PH levels, try changing up your diet a bit. the same thing happened to me and i got sick of bleaching my underwear. i would research more into it if i were you, but i fixed it by eating yogurt and other such probiotic foods.

It can take several weeks to develop symptoms after having contact with someone infected.

But nonetheless, you should go see a doctor. No one here can really help you with it and there’s a ton of possible causes. It might be as little as stress induced hives, it might be dermatitis, it might be an allergic reaction, it might be scabies and the list goes on. it’s impossible to tell.

Alot of the time virgins have no problem using tampons. Could you actually be dealing with something like vaginismus?

That comes to mind cos you seem to have a negative view of your vagina.. that negative view mixed with past painful experiences could be causing your muscles to involuntarily tighten

No. 122736

Sounds like possibly vaginismus, friend. Dumb question but did your tampon have an applicator? When I was younger, my first time using one was a brand that had a weird shape and no applicator and it soaked my damn vag dry trying to put it in and hurt like a bitch. Have you ever been to a gyno/doctor about your situation?

No. 122844

Does anyone else have to do ‘tip toes’ when they’re close to orgasm? I do it without thinking and trying not to requires effort that takes me out of the cumming headspace. I’ve even given myself bad cramps in my calves from how hard I bend my feet down if I’m being really intense.

I never really thought about it until I rewatched End of Evangelion where they censor the scene of Misato sleeping with her bf by only showing her legs on camera where she’s doing that and I thought ‘that’s a really weird way to move your feet during sex, wait, I do that’.

No. 122847

I used to have that too. Still cant wear tampons comfortably (havent really tried a lot tbh)
It gets better when you have regular sex with a good partner who spends enough time at foreplay.
If it still hurts a lot when he inserts, you're probably still dry and he's not doing a very good job "preparing" you
Not saying the first time won't hurt (it probably will) but it helps.

No. 122861

It suddenly became difficult and painful for me to insert into my vagina and I'm worried about it. For the context, my period ended 2 days ago and I didn't masturbate during. Probably around 10 days since I last inserted anything into my vagina, I don't use tampons. I use an average size (5 inch) dildo exclusively to masturbate, I clean my toy immediately after use every time. My vagina is very tight so I'm used to a struggle to insert and then things become very easy and pleasurable when its inside, but now it feels completely different. Its even tighter and completely painful to insert, I can't get it in all the way and it feels kind of like it might be swollen inside. I have no sex life outside of using my dildo, I don't overdo masturbation and I definitely don't have an STD. Should I be worried? Does anyone else have this experience or know how to fix it? I'm afraid I won't be able to masturbate like normal ever again and I want to cry.

No. 122863

It could be a mental thing. I never wear tampons cause I hate them and just use pads, but I was having PIV with my ex frequently for years until one day I closed up. Stayed with him for a sexless 2 years while we both thought my shit was broke. Soon as I moved on from that situation I've opened up again and had no issues. I really want to get back in contact and say I've had loads of sex since, since he really made me out to be broken lol. Honestly, I think a lot of girls when they say they're too tight there's something subconsciously making you tense up. Maybe try a vibrator on the outside for a while and you might get aroused enough for penetration? I don't think a tampon or dildo has emotional scarred you like my ex bf did so hopefully it goes away. It sucks when you feel like you're broke, but I don't think you are anon

No. 122866

You're not alone, anon.
I've had something similar happen to me after heavy and uncomfortable periods. It's always just gone away after a few days. I think >>122863 is right that you're probably just tense.

No. 122869

Thanks for the advice and reassurance anons. I did it last night and tried again this morning and its really freaking me out but I think freaking out about it might just be making it worse. I did try with a vibrator earlier and it got me relatively wet but unfortunately made no difference when it came to insertion. I don't think was originally making me any more tense than usual, I was excited to masturbate now my period was over, but now this whole issue is probably making me tense, I don't know how to get past that.
Also its a relief to hear that it could be related to the period itself as that makes sense with the timing.

No. 122881

Stupid as fuck question, but do hymens grow back? The only thing I ever put inside me was a 2 and a half inch curling iron and when I finished I noticed that I was all bloody and freaked the fuck out. It’s been yeaaarrrsss since I’ve done anything vaginally. I tried to finger myself but I could physically feel the sensation of “breaking” something. The only example I can think of is when you stretch out bubblegum and put your finger in it. If that makes sense. What the fuck is that sensation? It turns me off and freaks me the fuck out.

Update, gave it a break for a while and tried again last night. I took it really slow including some shallow masturbation when I couldnt get it in all the way. By the end I almost had it fully in but it still felt different and kind of painful and closed up compared to usual. I'm just hoping if I keep this up things will go back to normal.
Should I invest in lube? I havent used it before since I produce plenty of moisture pretty fast but I think it might help my situation now.

I had like almost a year long reoccurring yeast infection streak as I was trying to cure it with otc pessaries and cream combo (canesten for britbongs) and it worked for a cycle and then came back. Just go for the otc pill, it is much more effective (gone for good as of 5 months on the 1st try!) and probiotics are probably a good idea anyway! honestly hate myself for suffering so long with it, for the first few months i thought it was just a ~a natural change~ due to aging/moving to a diff climate, but nah, it was just good old candida

It's not always a "wall" type of hymen as we imagine it - it can have a hole or many holes etc, that's why you can insert tampons every month and yet still have an intact hymen that would break during sex. Or it's partially broken, you can insert tampons, fingers, but breaks more when you put in something bigger, like a penis lol. Hymens are wild man.

My boyfriend apparently has actually really painful blue balls (but he doesn’t use it to guilt me into sex so don’t worry). When he cums after blue balling, it’s always a LOT more than normal and he says it’s a little painful too (he sounds like he’s in pain mid orgasm too, usually he’s quiet) and he stays sore briefly afterwards. I never believed blue balls were actually a thing until him because the evidence is pretty obvious with him. But I bet it’s different for most guys.

I use washable cloth pads - have done for about 8 years I think now! they're great, I used to hate sticky sweaty plasticly pads.

the amount you need all depends on how heavy your flow is really. I have, I think, 6 but I alternate between pads and using a menstrual cup during my period. 3 of my 6 pads are technically liners too which are just for discharge and very light bleeding.

if you have a heavy flow you'll need more as you'll want to change them more often. you could buy a few more and see how long it is before you run out of clean ones and then buy more accordingly until you have enough to last through an average period. for some great info I would recommend checking out precious stars on youtube. that's where I started for info on RUMPS (reusable menstrual products) btw, welcome to the club!

So I have very small inner labia. It's hidden and the lips are short, always kinda "closed" together, you could say I don't see them often lol. But I tidied myself up after some me&me time today, I pulled the labia apart and I saw bumps I've never noticed before. They were on the inside of my labia minora, not like pimples but… glands… idk. A bit like on the tongue. I remember the skin being smooth there. I'm a virgin so I doubt that's some disease. Did a little digging on the internet and found out that those can be fordyce spots? Apparently they appear during puberty and you get more of them with age and they're normal. It's not like I've seen many vaginas…, but I've never heard nor saw those. So my question is basically do you girls have them? Or should I saw a gyno about that? That would be my first ever visit and I'm the shyest person I know, so I'm not really eager about that

Hoping this is the right thread for this. Did anyone else experience this or know what I should do?

I went off birth control (patch) in December. After that, I had no period until July. During this time I got a Pap & blood test done to try and find out why it was taking so long to get my period back… everything was fine. I got a ‘period’ in May (very light and irregular), and a normal period in June and July (normal for me is intensely heavy & painful). Now it’s September and no period… I’m almost 7 weeks now without one (I’m usually every 5 weeks). I have not had sex, so I am not pregnant.

Since then I’ve lost my doctor. I have no access to health care. My area has a doctor shortage and almost no one can get any healthcare.

Should I be worried? I know my tests came back fine but it seems weird to now be 9 months in and still not have a regular period back. Especially after having one twice…

I don't know what to do with my pubes anymore. I tried hair removal cream but it missed some spots so it just ended up becoming patchy and you can only use that stuff every few weeks.. I used an epilator on the rest but it grew back really fast so then I used a razor. I also got my damn labia stuck in the epilator so now I'm a bit scared to try again. I don't know what to do, I hate shaving because I always have stubble and get all those ugly red bumps.. but no other method seems to really work for me. The cream would work if it would get all the hairs but it didn't so now I'm stuck shaving the rest until it's safe to use the cream again. Can you use wax inbetween hair removal cream or is that also too damaging? I don't have wax yet but I want to try it. I don't want to get it professionally done because it's too expensive (I'm very poor) and I'm also very ashamed of my vagina because it is a smelly roastbeef that leaks all the time lol…

No. 123530

If you are ashamed try hiding it with your pubes? But seriously anon if you actually smell go see a gynecologist. You likely are normal and worry too much about genital beauty though. Genitals aren't very pretty.

No. 123533

if it legit smells (vs you just being insecure/not knowing how normal vaginas behave), go to gyno, it is probably bv. excessive discharge could also be due to bv or it could be you just produce more discharge naturally (most likely the case if the exact amount/texture varies throughout the cycle). otherwise maybe leave your vag alone for a bit so the pube situation can calm down, do not use hair removal cream bc they are really harsh chemicals and the thought of anyone putting them anywhere near their vagina honestly makes me shiver. used that shit on my legs once and my skin got so fucked up and dry and went back to normal only in a week or so. and those are legs!

try looking up "proper" shaving techniques but tbh i think it is all a meme/down to individual person's biology as I personally always end up with red bumps and ingrowns anyway, even on my legs. i recommend just keeping everything nicely trimmed (scissors or clippers), imo that's the most comfy colution and if you are so concerned about your (btw very normal) labia, a little amount of pubes will hide them a bit as opposed to a complete baldie look just making them more on display.

My vagina has been the same ever since I was a child, I don't believe I had bv since then already..

get rid of shaving bumps by wiping down the area with 70% alcohol after shaving and patting dry. then moisturize.
