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. 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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‘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.

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
I hope this helps!

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.

No. 115168

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.

No. 115430

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.

No. 116043

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

No. 117516

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.

I absolutely hate having a heavy flow. I can sleep with a maxi pad and a super plus tampon in (I know, don’t lecture me) and I end up bleeding down my leg every morning. The worst days, I go through at least 6 super plus tampons. 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.

But even now if I happen to give into period cravings or something and I eat crappy for a few days before my period I notice it gets heavier again.

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’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.

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

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

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!

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 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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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…

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.

this is the first time i've ever done this before. i'm very, VERY hairy naturally but i didn't shave until i turned 18, and i rarely ever shave except under arms and legs when i go out clubbing (also rare) so it's not as coarse as it could be.

i wanted to experience a period without hair because it's kind of annoying (i have a very big bush!) and i'm surprised how much i like it!!

it took about an hour and i have a couple cuts but it's a good first attempt. i don't think i'll do it often though, maybe just special occasions.

So I know you’re not supposed to put soap inside your vagina.. but is there a special way to wash your vulva? Can you use scented soap? I’ve been doing it for years and have never known if it was okay or not because people use vagina for everything even though the vulva is different…

No. 123968

Just wash the external bits. The more mild a soap is the better it is for you, but if what you are using now isn't causing any problems there's no need to change things.

I've been using menstrual cups for years now but always feel I have to wear a thin cloth panyliner too. I've heard lots of women talk about how great it is to not get leaks but they never mention 'spotting' which I always get when using my cup which is why I wear the liner. I'm definitely using the cup right, making sure my cervix is inside, I think the spotting of blood is just what was already inside my vag inbetween removing of the cup. does any other cup users here get this?

follow up question, has anyone tried the underwear made for periods that is meant to soak up any blood (like thinx and modibodi)? if they're designed to do that then surely they could cope with a little spotting of blood as I'm using my pad. anyone have any experience with them?

the vagina is a self cleaning organ, anon. you don't need to put any kind of wash inside there, doing so can mess up your pH levels! when I wash I just stick to a little gentle soap (I've been using dove for years with no issue. don't use one with harsh detergents) in my pubes and around my vulva but never inside and wash it away thoroughly and I've never had an issue.

Yes. Also called Isopropyl alcohol. Good luck!

No. 124067

My theory is that the reason there is no universal method/advice when it comes to washing is because vaginas differ so much.

For instance, no, the soap doesn't reach my inner bits when I rinse because they are completely covered and by my labia majora.

What do you ladies think?

No. 124074

So do you use soap on your inner labia or no? I get like, smegma build up between my inner and outer labia because I have ‘fat’ outer lips and long inner lips. I guess the question is, should I be using soap between them or is just water okay? It seems like either way it gets rid of the build up but idk what’s better for that area.

No. 124075

It's easier if you pull apart your outer and inner labia with one hand, and then use one of the fingers on your other hand to scrub in-between the fold with lots of water. Make sure you use lots of water or else you'll get irritated bc it's a very sensitive area. You should feel the dirt being lifted off as your scrubbing and washed away. Absolutely don't use soap. It always throws off my balance.

No. 124076

Yeah, this happens to me too. It's just blood that's between the cup and vaginal opening.

No. 124078

I get that weird build up too but def do not use soap to wash it away, just your fingers as >>124075 described.

I do get the soap in between the outer and inner majora but not between my labia minora where the vag hole/urethra is. maybe a few bubbles get in there but they get rinsed. also, when I say I use soap I mean just some bubbles on my hand and a little light rub, not holding the soap on my labia or anything. I think the soap itself is the biggest issue honestly. can't stress enough the importance of a mild soap like dove

It’s probably not gonna be surgery, you’re much more likely to need pelvic floor exercises or something. Keep leaking pee so constantly you need to wear daily protection and saying it’s not much if you like, but it’s probably a fixable problem you’re gonna ignore.

Don't wash your vag with soap.
If it smells weirdly or you think the colour is off, it's probably because you're fucking with it bacterial flora. Soap is highly alkaline, actually the highest you can get in a washing product! Your body's skin can take it, but neither can genital area and your face. Use products intended for vaginal wash ONLY and check for strong detergents; don't use anything with SLS, but something with Lauryl Glucoside and other gentle detergents you can Google. I know some countries don't have the variety of products to choose from, but you can always try to search for the best.

Also, for some other anons, it does not self-clean. That's a myth. You shame that one anon for asking yet you give wrong advice. Discharge doesn't magically disappear. Water isn't enough to clean all of it. Do you also wash your asshole with just water? The vulva is close enough for shit bacteria to spread, also you sometimes wipe carelessly maybe, you sweat, you sit whole day in your underwear. It's all there. You have to wash it with a product. It's skin like any other. You just don't use anything harsh and only wash external parts (sounds obvious, but believe me, not for everyone).
Don't shame people for asking. It's something that needs to be talked about more, and more openly.

Discharge is the self cleaning. The vagina cleans itself in that no woman ever needs to douche or insert pessaries to be clean. Nobody is saying a splash of water is all that’s needed to clean the vulva and labia.

No. 124413

yes, they are affected by aging pretty much the same way the rest of your body is (not that they will suddenly undergo a growth spurt or something, but they can change shape somewhat. fat loss from the pubic mound can also happen and will change their shape). it's also common for labia minora to get darker.

I have an arm implant so I don't get periods or anything, I just have self-consciousness issues about my vag discharge.
So basically it's a constant milky cream color. It has a pretty consistent vaggy smell and sometimes when I swatch it with tp it's slightly off color yellow. Slightly, but not like an infection.
It's not itchy or clumpy like a yeast infection.

I need to wear pads because of the discharge anyway. I don't want to change my panties 10 times a day.

>it does not self-clean. That's a myth.
>Discharge doesn't magically disappear.
Gosh you don't know what you're talking about here. The discharge IS the self-cleaning. Think of a self-cleaning litter box. Just because it's "self-cleaning" doesn't mean you won't ever come in contact with cat shit or you won't ever have to look at a litter box or ever touch one again. It just means it's gathering it all up and out for you in one location for convenience, and you don't have to stop what you're doing and clean it out yourself every single day. You just get rid the stuff that's been collected for you. Or even a self-cleaning oven – you still have to clean the soot out that the cleaning created when it's done. The discharge is like that.

>Water isn't enough to clean all of it.

>You have to wash it with a product.
This isn't true at all and everyone's vagina is different. For example, I have atopic dermatitis so I have to pay close attention to what I'm using on any of my skin, and even (dermatologist's orders) minimize soap use to only the most necessary areas such as armpits etc if it's flaring up. If I use any type of cleansing agent (even the ones specifically designed for vaginas or are for "sensitive skin") outside of water it all goes up in flames for me no matter what. But that's not the case for everyone. It doesn't smell bad and my discharge is normal just using water.

>Do you also wash your asshole with just water?

>The vulva is close enough for shit bacteria to spread
No, because they're completely different functions and asshole isn't self cleaning. This is why people douche before anal sex. If you spread the shit bacteria to the vulva it's because you did wash your asshole properly, it's not because your vagina doesn't clean itself. It's not the vagina's job to clean your asshole. If your cat shits outside the self-cleaning litter box or pisses on the wall next to it, it's not the litter-box's fault it can't clean that up. You don't then say "This self-cleaning litter box is a myth!"

No. 124614

Guys, it's like that on the inside of my vagina. There's no way that's caused by detergent. And masturbate and my finger comes out looking like there's a bunch of white lint on it. It's been like this for literal years.

God I wish someone knew what the fuck is wrong with me. Mucus-y discharge is what it's supposed to be like, right? It's not supposed to ball up, right? That's my understanding.

Maybe it's just because it's four in the morning but this post made me laugh. Nice insights, anon.

Plus shit shouldn't be getting into your vag if you wipe front-to-back and don't wear thongs.

For real though, vaginal canals are self-cleaning (please don't douche) but vulvas are not. Stuff gets stuck between the labia and causes smell and itchiness if left untended to, so definitely wash that area with at least warm water and a washcloth.

Although does anyone masturbate in the shower just for the sake of cleaning and making sure everything's okay? Masturbating in the shower is how I discovered the issue I mentioned at the beginning of my post.

White lumpy discharge usually indicates an overgrowth of yeast but you say you've been tested and that's the first thing a doc looks for

The only similar thing I can say I experience is from having an enlarged clit (past testosterone use) under my hood needs to be cleaned every day or it gets little white clumps under it which I assume is a result of trapped dead skin cells? something similar to what men get when they don't clean under their foreskin

k, I'll bite. you don't comprehend there's two different issues going on, if you say there's no infection then I guess the blobs are just your normal, I too get these gelatinous blobs when I'm ovulating; the other issue is the urine leaking, which is probably due to weak pelvic floor muscles as >>124309 said and you totally disregarded them and went off as if it was about your discharge instead of wetting your pants.

See a female doctor not some dude who thinks an obvious problem is normal. Go see a gyno like you were already told. Don’t accept an obvious problem as totally normal because one doctor said it’s normal for young women to piss themselves all day and produce globules of abnormal, unhealthy sounding discharge.

Do any anons have the Kyleena IUD? I'd love to hear your experiences with it. I've had mine for 1.5 year now and I have more frequent spotting on it than I did when I had the Skyla for 2 years, but at least I'm not bleeding for 8 months straight like I was when I was on the depo shot.

Anyway, I've been bleeding a bit since last Tuesday evening and the blood is brown. I looked it up and a couple of articles said it's actually normal if you're on hormonal birth control. Regardless, it caused me to schedule my annual appointment with my gyno, as I tend to have trouble feeling my strings (I think they may have curled up towards my cervix) and I haven't had a bout of spotting/bleeding last this long.

TL;DR - I've been having consistent, but not worryingly heavy, bleeding with my IUD over the past week. Wondering if this is normal.

Side note: I should also add that I don't think I'm pregnant, but they'll test for that anyway when I have my appointment on the 17th.

I've gotten it before too. Usually what I do is just…. flush the inside of my vagina out with body temp water. Honestly, it's usually because I've gotten a tiny bit of lint or something up there from masturbating (hazards of cats sleeping in your bed) and my body is trying to flush it out so I help it along.
But if you've had it for years I'm not sure, have you managed to cut yourself with your nail and it's your body reacting to the damage?

Cytolytic vaginosis presents the same as a yeast infection but you won't test positive for yeast. I've been having trouble with it for 6 months and the only cure is baking soda douches.

So I have an "innie", as in my labia majora pretty much cover everything. I clean it every day using my fingers and water. But it seems no matter how often I clean it I get this smegma build up in the folds under my clitoral hood. Little bits of smegma get hard and fuses to the skin making it really difficult to clean. The only way I have figured out how to get rid of it is to take the pointy ends of a tweezer and carefully scrape at it over and over in the shower. Even like this it takes FOREVER to get the chunks out, plus it makes my clit area sore to dig at it with tweezers after a while.
Please tell me there is some better way to prevent/clean this, at first it was satisfying to get the chunks out but I'm getting tired of having to spend an extra hour in the shower when I want my bf to eat me out

>Cytolytic vaginosis

I'm curious about this. I haven't dealt with any vaginal issue since my tween years but this year it's been utter hell with me getting sick with some sorta coughing shit, getting a bodily rash that excluded my genital area, and now what seemed like a yeast infection that I took one of those one-day Diflucan pills for. It seemed to help with discharge but the skin on my labia never seemed to fully go back to normal. It's still sensitive, stings when I pee or wipe with the usual baby wipes I use (basically almost entirely made up of aloe vera with no fragrance). I haven't changed anything about how I treat my vagina but it's just been so sensitive and raw lately.

I did go on a beachy vacation and try tampons for the first time during it. I'd been a pad girl all my life and I wonder if tampons just totally messed my balance up.

Wow what a wall of fucking text about my mysterious new ailment.

If you have to leave some stubble anyway then why don't you try a trimmer?

two days before my period my vagina gets SO ITCHY. i don't really have other symptoms like strange discharge, smell, or dryness. just terrible, uncomfortable, "please kill me now" itchiness. it goes away when my period starts.

when i was on the pill i lived without this for years, but now i am off the pill and the itchiness is back. what is going on and is there any other fix for this besides birth control?

No. 125544

Bc of PCOS I celebrate my period. Is there any alternative from birth control? I really hate what it does to my body. It never normalizes my periods, in fact I usually get the first one and it rarely happens from there. Once I've quit I've noticed they're more frequent.

No. 125739

I also have itchiness issues depending on where my cycle is at the moment. When it was really bad still, I also got micro fissures on my labia that itched like crazy. Usually it happens before getting my period. It usually goes away when I use yeast infection treatment (usually a 3 day regimen with uvulas). I did that a few times and it got better. I took lactic acid afterwards and started taking probiotics. Especially the probiotics made this problem go away totally. Look for "Ultimate Flora". Generally, I think most vagina issues are a bit of a trial and error, but most of them you can cure. Good luck!

That's not uncommon, anon. I get it too, some women don't. It's due to hormones released while on your period. There's not much you can do except take regular pain meds. Maybe contact your doctor to see what options you have if you believe your period pain is pretty unbearable because there could be underlying causes. I take naproxen for period pains, but they only do so and so much for me.

Metformin is also a treatment for pcos but i've only ever seen it being prescribed to overweight or diabetic women.

Also there're a couple different types of bc pills that treat pcos, you should ask your doctor if the ones you're taking are not working for you.

And don't get too carried away by the rageboner people have for the pill. To some people it works wonders. In my case it got rid of my pcos period cramps, cleared my skin, and made my boobs grow a size up.

It does give me mood swings but i'll take that 1000 times over the misery pcos used to put me through. I used to pass out from the pain sometimes.

I'm amazed some people get clear skin or extra boobage from the pill. It saved me from heavy periods but not much else. Still fatigued and get pains from my period. I got a cream that helped cystic acne on my chin/mouth area earlier this year but it looks like it's increasing again now so I might have to ask for it again. I'm still on one of the combination pills that have less risks and might hear with my doctor about trying a stronger one but I'm unsure. Anyone had experience with switching to a stronger pill?

I've been waiting a bit over half a year now to get a kinda big cyst operated away and still heard nothing from the hospital. Not always joyful to have free health care in that sense. I'm too scared to have penetrative sex atm in fear it'll burst.

Same here, but I'm very ashamed. It's so fucking ugly. Labiaplasties are not normal where I live so it's not an option. I'm a virgin and I can't see myself having sex with the lights on ever, if he even agrees.

No. 126383

It is mutilation, unless it's for medical reasons. You lose sensitivity, sex feels less pleasurable for both parties by decreasing friction (similar to how the foreskin works during sex), and there can even be reoccurring pain.

Just own up to it. There's nothing wrong with having bigger inner labia/discoloration. When women enter puberty the hormones cause color changes and inner labia growth in many women. If your concern is what men think, they don't care. Men are programmed to find a large variety of things attractive. The retards you see complaining about labia and breasts jerk off to porn and hentai all day. They aren't the kinds of men you'd be with in the first place, so who cares?

No. 126396

Sorry, I meant larger labia themselves decrease friction and keep the natural lubrication from drying out. No labia/no foreskin both cause more friction and drying, which can cause discomfort and pain for both parties.

Yup, and if you do find a guy who cares that much, then that's a blessing in disguise. You know to dump him on the fucking spot.

I'm sorry anons but reading this makes me angry. I hope this isn't race baiting or whatever, just sharing my experience, but I'm a darker skinned woman with no hope of being born with an 'attractive' neat pink vag like some white women and it'll spiral into a source of dysphoria if I don't mentally squash it. Like even if I get it shortened, it's not pink, if I wanted to bleach it, that's probably not even possible on top of being dangerous and expensive. It's easier and free to change my mindset about a body part I shouldn't be judged for anyway. It's still upsetting to read what you guys think about genitalia that look like that and I feel sorry you feel the same embarrassment as I did when I was >>126342 this young.
Admittedly I think men's genitalia looks awful most of the time and their darker ball/dick skin looks like dirt but I remember that it's just skin (that's gonna be clean before it touches me) and sure as hell no man is going to wax and bleach his nuts just for me so why should I do it for them?
I'm not bothered about 'roast beef' comments because I've only ever looked forward to a good roast beef. I fucking hate the word 'loose' as if you can tell how it feels just by looking at it, people seriously need sex ed and to use their brains more than ever as labia minora have no indication of 'experience'. Like does anyone comment on the appearance of men's dick and balls changing shape for having sex too many times? Of course we don't.

Would you call my labia loose and nasty and ugly to my face?” They usually don’t bc they’re so stupid that they think nobody really looks like that except old whores. And then they apologize.

Anyway yes I have definitely had to learn to love my vagina. But now I do and I have to remind myself of exactly what you said. I don’t want those kind of people down there anyway. When people try to say that large labia is ugly I just counter them with I think its beautiful and looks like flowers. Pretty pussy petals.

They're only really noticeable when I stretch the flaps out, but they're there. They don't hurt, they don't itch; they're just ugly. I've never gone to a gynecologist, but from online research I've concluded these are fordyce spots. Has anyone else here had this? Is it possible to get rid of them? I hate them and honestly they've made me scared of actually showing my body to anyone because I'm afraid they'll think I have some terrible disease or something.

These are normal, they're pretty common, and literally no one will even look at them. Your future partner (male of female) will either have them too or at least seen them before.
In the case of men, aside from fordyce spots on their dick or balls, they can also have pearly penile papules that are even uglier but equally harmless. So even if your partner isn't female they will probably relate.

Who here uses menstrual cups? has it ever leaked while you were asleep? I toss and turn around a lot and I'm worried about that.

Do you need to buy one of the specific menstrual cup washes and use those daily or can I just rinse it in between wears and boil it after use?

Also, does anyone else have a menstrual cup microwave sterilizer like in the pic? Do those work well?

No. 126695

I haven't used that type of menstrual cup that you have in this photo, but I have used disposable ones. They didn't leak as long as you make sure to empty it as often as your flow is. If you flow in heavy than you'll need to empty it out or throw it away often. I did wear a disposable one to bed and I don't remember it leaking in the night. You really don't need to be menstrual soap for it. Soap and water between uses will work fine. You should definitely boil between cycles

No. 126719

If you do it right, it won't leak. I wear mine to bed and have no problems. The only thing that is going to make it leak is puting it incorrectly and after you get used to it, it won't happen. Also, don't forget to measure your cervix to make sure you get the right size!

No. 126735

I got a Luna cup a year ago and I’ve loved it since. I’ve only leaked like, 3 times, and it was caused by incorrect placement and a heavy flow.

They’re definitely worth trying.

It's really important, also your cervix lowers a bit when you are on your period, so keep that in mind too! My cup is 4,5 cm, the exact measure of my cervix, and I have to struggle a bit when using it. Its not awful, but insertion could be a bit easier if I got a smaller one. I'm sure you'll like it, just don't give up if it seems a bit hard in the beginning, took me about 3 months to get it right and I almost threw it away.

No. 126791

Never tried a softdisc and penetration, but oral with the regular cup is actually REALLY good and I had no problems at all! Definetly worth a try.

No. 126842

It will leak only if it is full; I've never had a problem with movement with any model I've tried. You should probably wash it, though any sort of mild soap without oil, scent, antibacterial ingredients, or abrasive additives should be fine. I use the specific washes just to keep scents from accumulating, but it's not necessary. Rinsing under cold water before washing is a good way to minimize staining. I've used those collapsible sterilizers before and I found they hang onto scent even when dried immediately, and also tend to overflow if you fill them enough to cover the cup. If you don't want to just use an old mug that you've designated for the purpose, you could try using those pump/bottle part microwave steam bags.

I've done it with the Lumma Unique, which is the same thing but a reusable silicone. No pain or leaking. My boyfriend did not feel it at all.

There are services online where you can request a test kit and post off samples to a lab. You get your results through email and they will even post a prescription if needed. Bit pricey but I used one once to test for a couple of the most silent/common STDs and it put my mind at ease without having to face anyone at any point during the testing. All very discreet

Not sure if I want to put this in a the mental health thread, but I tend to get really anxious around my menstrual cycle. Usually a few days before I start bleeding, I have dissociation and when the cramps start, the dissociation gets stronger.

Any other anons deal with similar symptoms? Anything that's helped ease the symptoms? I usually like to workout when I'm anxious, but I don't know anything else that could help.

No. 127890

nta but maybe buy slightly better toilet paper if you use those 2ply ones that aren't quilted at all? have used nothing but normal, dry toilet paper my entire life and not once have i had bits of tp stuck to my ass wtf. idk, maybe spit on a fresh bunch of tp as some moisture for the final wipe?
i think some people are more predisposed to getting thrush at a drop of a hat (me) to the point of getting it from more scented shower gels trickling down (me). If you do end up getting thrush, i recommend oral tablets over vaginal pessaries by a mile, the creams are kinda naff too.

Maybe that other anon lives in a country where all toilet paper sucks.

Yup, we're fucking awful - coconut, floral, aloe vera - you name it, we want our arses to smell like it. I never understood why people used scented toilet paper, all it's going to do is irritate you.

I don't get the complaints either. My experience of UK toilet paper is that some of it is so thick that it's more like kitchen roll. Some brands are so bad for this that I deliberately avoid them and buy cheaper toilet paper because my husband finds it's necessary to use half a roll to clean his hairy arse crack and the thicker paper will block the toilet.

I always see pic related in discount shops and I know people that buy it because it's cheap. I tried it once and never again. It has a very chemical smell to it, like cheap perfume and alcohol.

You can find scented tp in the US too. My boyfriend brought lavender scented tp home once and was baffled when I told him there was no way I was going to be using it.

Oh god there’s nothing I hate more than the scent any pad in my country has. It doesn’t even smell like alcohol like >>128041. It‘s more like really cheap sweet/flowery soap.

If you do find them, they’re really fancy, eco-friendly brands that cost easily 5-times what I‘d pay for store-brand ones.

depending on how they test for pregnancy there might be no harm in just getting it as long as they don't charge you extra.

in the us we test for pregnancy with a urine panel and they just do it automatically/still encourage it for anyone regardless of sexuality mostly because drs here need proof you aren't pregnant to provide certain medications.

The problem is that I might have eczema there too, so I need to not be too dry and uncomfortable…and can saliva make yeast worse? Or the pill?

old post, but do you know if the change in breast size from the pill is permanent? I got bigger after I started the pill, but I've never gone off of it since to notice if it changes back.

I've been going to a gyno for this and it feels like a game of whack a mole.

Have you tried washable cloth pads anon? They're always an option. I got some recently because I hate the way dispaoble pads feel with a passion and don't like changing tampons so often. I can't speak for anyone but myself, but I find them much better and more comfortable than throwaway pads.

What’s the absorption like?

No. 129746

NTA but I have a bunch and they're really comfy and don't smell, and absorb much better than traditional pads.
I used to have leakage and really bad chafing (in part because of the wet material) until I switched to washable fabric pads, wouldn't go back if you paid me.
I don't know if all of them are good though, I just bought some made in my country since the ones you can find on Etsy were really pricey.

I went to planned parenthood 2/3 months ago and they did a physical exam & std tests and they said everything seems normal.

Also, how do you know what absorbency and length to get? I have pretty heavy periods (like super plus tampons every few hours) the first few days, so how do I figure out what size I need in cloth pads?

Sorry for all the questions, anon, but I appreciate your help in advance!

No. 129771

really hard to say, getting it checked out was the right call. the only thing I would recommend is getting a pap smear if you haven't had one recently, and checking your labia for any abnormal swelling, discoloration, or any other changes.

if the pain continues I'd get a follow up exam done as well.
it definitely could be just irregularity, that can be stress/diet/aging/etc/nothing in particular. I've been very regular for years, but get spotting with darker blood and random aches once in a blue moon.

The ones have are the same ones in the pic above. Teamoy brand from amazon. It was $15 for 5 I think, but they make a variety pack that's $23 with diffrent sizes.

They're pretty good, def more comfrtable than dispaoble ones. The fabric on the front is kind of like fleece and the outside is a waterproof which is nice. The only problems I can see are if you sweat really easily you may get hot in these, and they sometimes shift around when you're moving a lot (can be fixed by pining them down with extra pins)

Again, I can only speak for myself, but I haven't found any issues with the smallest sized ones, then again I don't have as heavy bleeding as some. I think it'd probably be really hard to bleed through one unless you were shifting around a lot, as it seeps into the fabric instead of sitting on top of it like normal pads.

As for washing, I genrally let them soak in a bucket with soap and water or rinse them in the shower with me and then throw them in the wash with my underwear.

No. 129801

I love cloth pads and prefer them to disposable ones. I'd never go back.

They feel better than the regular ones because they're softer and more breathable. I don't get sweaty or chafe anywhere with the cloth ones. Because it's fabric and doesn't have that plasticy feel, a lot of the moisture seems to disappear. One big bonus for me is that you don't get that "omg a waterfall" feeling when you stand up after a while, sneeze or cough. It gets absorbed very quickly. I never get the wet feeling with them and they actually feel less gross to me than regular pads.

I have exceptionally heavy periods to the point where I'm on medication to prevent blood loss when on my period. With the regular pads, I'd change it every hour or two and my underwear would always find a way to get stained, flood or leak. The cloth ones hold out for longer and I can do a whole day at work without feeling like it needs changing or feeling gross or icky. I change them every few hours but that's really more out of habit and just to be safe than actual necessity. They seem to channel the blood better. When I remove the cloth ones, they're not dripping and all the blood seems to have found its way to the middle of the pad instead of ending up all over the wings and every other part. Like >>129797 said, the blood doesn't sit on top like a regular pad.

The biggest downside for me is that they can shift a little because mine are only held on with a single press stud, but I change what style of underwear I wear and that fixes the issue.

I got night time ones because I honestly thought my period would be waaaay too much for the regular ones but they've been perfect. They're not as bulky as you might think. I'd say mine are about the thickness of a regular pad but floppier because they don't have stiff plastic so they don't show through really. If you're wearing something really tight or the fabric is thin, they can be easily hidden with a pair of boyshorts or something.

When you buy a set, they usually come with a bag to put them in. Mine also fold up and close with their press stud so they're just in a little square, which makes them pretty easy to hide. With the way they fold and the plastic-lined wet bag, any moisture and scent is easily hidden.

Tbh though I think they could probably survive a shift at work if you were really against changing them in public. TMI and kinda gross but I lasted a 12 hour hospital shift when I'd forgotten to bring an extra pad and was struggling to find time for a break. There was no leakage and the fabric and lack of plastic means that the blood doesn't really pool in the pad. It gets soaked up so you still feel relatively dry.

No. 130522

That's why I specified that it hurts on the inside, not the outside. And I can see how that works since I'm pulling the "hole" as well while doing that.. I just figured it could be vaginismus since I already suspect that I have that for other reasons

No. 130527

I mean if you're just spreading them in like a not forceful way it shouldn't hurt on the inside even of the vaginal opening stretches a bit. I def don't have vaginismus and I can even kinda stretch my opening with a finger without any discomfort so maybe you do have it. Go to doctors though, there are ways to lessen it/get past it.

My doctor is a cunt who insulted me. I already have anxiety disorders to begin with and I don't feel comfortable going to her. I already switched doctors very recently so I can't do it again and there's no other doctor close to me.

Has one of you ever been to an OB/GYN appointment while on their period?

I‘m struggling with very severe PMS symptoms and also haven’t had a pap smear in way too long. Unfortunately I‘ll probably be on my period that day. Only like day 3 or 4 out of 6-7, so it’s not that Bad, but I‘m still incredibly insecure about it.

I‘d re-schedule but getting an appointment is a literal nightmare. I‘ve made this appointment in September and my symptoms are getting so bad I don’t think I can take waiting another 4 months.

No. 130537

you shouldn't really get a pap while on your period so reschedule if you're on it.

No. 130710

You should always avoid pap smears when on your period because it makes it more difficult to get a good sample and you might end up having to go again.

No. 130728

i have my first ob/gyn appointment EVER next tuesday and i'm terrified because i'm already 27 and i've never been to one.. my gp was already mad and made me feel really bad (she's making me go because i'm going through bad health stuff right now and wants everything checked), which is understandable but still. i explained to her that my family is weird and i grew up with the mindset that you don't go to the doctor for regular check ups or whatever unless you had a terrible chronic disease or something. it's the truth but i'm just horrified of getting "shamed" again. it's a very sensitive topic for me and just makes me feel very immature and stupid and what not. it's not even the procedure or anything, just having to tell the doctor that i've never gone through this whole thing. ugh.

No. 130740

The doctor definitely doesn't care at all. They see so many different women and genitals each day that they absolutely will not even have an opinion on the fact that you've never been. Just explain to them that its a family issue and they'll be like okay whatever. The actual procedure is also no problem at all. The anxiety and discomfort you feel now is literally worse than a pap smear, which is usually over faster than you even realize.

No. 130771

I haven't been able to actually "get wet" consistently since I was like 14. It's weird because I can feel turned on but there will be literally no natural lubrication until either my bf eats me out or after awhile after my bf starts fucking me (with lube). After that it's normal but it's 100% dry until the sex starts. I have sex with my bf nearly every day and I only get wet before sex only a few times a year and that's usually only after not doing it for a week or more after my period. I don't have a low libido and this started happening after I started taking antidepressants as a teen, but I haven't taken any meds in over 6 years. Is it possible for antidepressants to fuck up your sexual functions for life? Is it comparable to erectile dysfunction because I was pornsick as a teen, even though I don't watch porn or masturbate anymore? Or is this completely normal and I am just overreacting? I really don't think it's normal being in my early 20s and it being impossible to have sex without lube first.

Also, I feel like it's worth mentioning I have no problems reaching orgasm, my only problem is just I can't get wet like a normal person.

No. 130774

I'm voluntarily celibate anyway so it doesn't even matter but I dislike how my vulva is significantly darker than the rest of my body. It looks like I have some melanin build up there probably due to weight gain. I'm not fucking anyone right now but I can't help internalizing it when people talk shit about non-pink vaginas

No. 130792

Getting wet is also a protective move by your body to prepare you for insertion. It sounds more like your body is just a bit slow on the uptake, perhaps because you have sex so often that it doesn't register it's happening/is an event it needs to protect you from. The clue is it's easier to get wet if you haven't had sex for a week, your body is more aware of the "gonna have sex" signal when it's not an expected event. As long as you are careful to use lube and your boyfriend is not hurting you I don't think it's a problem.

WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO? This is probably really funny to most of you, and looking from an outsider’s point of view, it is! But I can’t stop crying from embarrassment, lmao. I don’t want to talk to him for a while. I know he didn’t mean to hurt my feelings, but damn one of my worst fears came true.

I’m supposed to be starting my period soon, so, could that be it? My diet probably has something to do with it too. Oh and I don’t put soap in my vagina, but I do wash it with water. Agh, this is so fucking embarrassing I don’t think I could talk to him or see him for a while.

No. 130820

1st things 1st, are you sure he wasn't memeing with you? being fake serious etc and you're just being insecure?
if you don't have any itching, discoloration of discharge etc, it is probably not bv and thus it's on your diet. if you wear undies from synthetics consider switching to cotton, also helps w less crotch sweat. don't put soap in your fanny unless you want thrush.

No. 130822

He was being serious, I think. Now that you mention it, there was a little discharge last night but I didn’t think nothing of it.

No. 130823

having discharge is normal, if it is a weird colour or texture then go to your gp/gyno but if it's your normal discharge then everything's fine. I haven't had bv so I cannot speak about that but thrush discharge looks fucked yet behaves the same so even if you had thrush it wouldn't stink. have a feeling if you had bv you'd know by now as it's quite uncomfortable. so back to your diet, anon. do you smoke/drink coffee/generally drink fuckall throughout the day?

No. 130827

Errm no, not really, but what if I’m just used to it? Usually my mom would flat out tell me if I smelled bad so I’m thankful it isn’t anything serious as BV. Maybe I should talk to him again. I really appreciate your help, Anon.

No. 130830

no problem, hope this has been even a bit useful kek. it is true we get used to our own smells etc but like surely not to THAT extent, you can still smell your own farts like. do ask your gp/gyno if in doubt tho! and def do talk to him, completely ghosting over something like this is bit silly, if you do have some sort of abnormality then yay, can fix that, if everything is ok and it is el grande miscommunication then yay, can also fix that.

Hi, so my discharge sometimes seems to be kind of green, but it's not an unusual amount I think and it's not super thick like glue or whatever, it looks like normal discharge but green? I'm hesitant to get it checked out because it doesn't look that odd besides being green and I don't have an itch or a fishy smell, I don't want to go through all that trouble if it's nothing.. The std place is pretty far away so it would take up half my day and I have to work too. I don't want to go to my doctor because it's not free if I get it checked out there and also she's a cunt who makes me uncomfortable

No. 130921

both of you, thank you so much!! i had my appointment today and it wasn't awkward at all! she only did an ultrasound scan to check whether everything was alright and said that i don't have to worry about coming in regularly unless i become sexually active/want birth control or have any sort of medical problem.

my doctor said something similar to that, too. she said young women really don't have to worry so much about going in regularly. when there is any sort of risk involved (like cancer history in the family), yes, but if everything is alright, nothing feels bad and your period is regular, you can chill and don't have to worry so much.

I used super sensitive baby wipes recently and got a bad yeast infection. I asked my doc about it cos I'm not prone to yeast infections and these wipes were so mild and fragrance free etc, She said not to use wet wipes full stop

I'm a lil pissed at myself for putting myself through a yeast infection when my hygiene is just fine without introducing wet wipes

No. 131065

Did you buy scented wipes? I'm sensitive to fragrance in a lot of products and it makes me itchy. Sometimes baby wipes will leave fibers too which can cause itching. If you think the scent is the problem try Honest unscented wipes, I always carry a pack when I travel cause I get UTIs super easily. If you don't think it's the scent maybe look into a bidet? You can get really simple cheap ones on Amazon that are easy to install and there are also travel ones that are sort of like a douche. Since it's just water you shouldn't have any issues.

No. 131069

Nta but I've been told moist wipes are bad for those who are prone to UTIs. That the mild ones just add moisture to the area and that is thought to do more to promote infection than prevent it. I looked into it after seeing my gyno and found articles saying the same, that they are more likely to exacerbate issues

No. 131099

I don't understand what you need the wipes for in the first place? It's known fact they they're bad for your vagina and bad for the environment, the only thing wet wipes should be used for is when your body or asshole stinks but you're away from home with no access to a shower.

as soon as you stop feeling it inside you. we're all built differently, so while >>131186 stops as soon as the tip of her finger is inside, i have to put in my finger all the way to the knuckle, otherwise it'll feel very uncomfortable and very obviously like there's something inside me. you'll probably have to fiddle around a little, but don't worry, you'll get the hang of it at your own pace.

No. 131259

Seconding this.
I‘m not too sensitive with it hitting my cervix so I usually push until I feel resistance. I just can tell when it sits right and I won’t feel it. Sometimes (but very rarely) I’ll still feel it when I stand up or sit down but then I’ll just re-adjust it a few inches, no big deal.

I usually find that it’s way more difficult when I’m nervous about it hurting (like when I have really bad cramps).

I'm a virgin, I masturbate, but my hymen was never one to "pop". I think it's the kind that is open and just stretches.
Maybe this belongs more to the Masturbation thread, but let's say I could have some sex soon perhaps maybe, and I don't want it to be too awkward.

So I can put two fingers in just fine, immediately when aroused. But with 3 fingers it gets weird. I feel like my vag opening is like a tight thick rubber-band around my fingers, and when I push the fingers in more, the band goes in too. This is weird and uncomfortable. Like, the skin gets pushed in. It kinda follows my fingers, it's painful. Doesn't happen with just 2 fingers though, but I wanted to stretch a bit to avoid penis-caused pain. It's not like I'm not wet/aroused enough. So, is this normal? I mean, I know it is. But I don't know, is it going to be like this always? Is my vagina build like this, is it hymen after all, or will I stretch? IF the opening stretches, then does it get so uncomfortably tight again after not having regular sex? Or does it stay stretched?
Sorry if those questions sound retarded. I'm an anxious person and I like to be prepared and know the situation the best I can beforehand, so I don't get sabotaged by fear

I don't think there is anything abnormal judging by your post. Try using a smaller dildo first if you're nervous about intercourse.

No. 131804

I thought that I had 'broken' my hymen with a thin hairbrush handle (classy I know) but for the first couple months of internal play I would still bleed and hurt a little. It only stopped after I bought myself a full sized dildo and braved it. Not gonna lie, that was pretty painful too but after that first session I was fine

No. 131808

Hymens don't really "pop" they stretch and tear. You've likely already done this if you use tampons or a cup. I do use a cup and there was still a small amount of blood the first time I had sex. It wasn't painful though. If you're nervous get a anatomically correct dildo that matches the average dick size where you live and try it out. If I could go back in time and do things differently, this is what I would I have done.

Just kinda sounds like vaginismus to me.

No. 132546

similar here, although my period used to be really fucking irregular since mid puberty, started to finally get regular (every two months) in my mid twenties… let me tell you this from my own experience (I bothered doctors a lot about this):
different doctors will propably tell you the same if you don’t have any other issues.
if they do come every two months in a rythm it’s not really irregular. some women react more sensitive to stress, nutrition, hormone changes through aging and whatnot, and having a slower period rythm is not that uncommon or neccessarily bad so just do your checkups and try not to worry too much about it, it will only raise your stress levels which can lead to futher irritation and delay in sensitive bodies.
If you are worried about your fertility you can test it. but really, don’t panic.
I understand that you’re sacred since it is a recent change, but having the period only every 2 months has it’s benefits and it’s totally possible for it to change again.

I pretty much completely stopped my heavy painful periods by taking LoLoestrin. It also helped with my migraines as well if you get them, just mention it to your doctor if you have migraines with aura because it can increase your risk for a stroke. If the pill is the route you want to go down, it's worth trying different ones. The Depo shot might help too but I had a lot of negative side effects from it so I can't personally recommend it.

I'm a virgin and I use pads for my periods. I wanted to switch to menstrual cups for years (therefore I've done my homework and I know all I need to know regarding them) but put it on hold because I was a virgin, finally came to the conclusion that I'm not losing my virginity any time soon plus pads have been giving me all types of irritations and skin rashes so I bit the bullet and bought a menstrual cup, I did a test run the first time I put it in it was relatively easy but when I took it out after about an hour I started bleeding, alright guess my vaginal opening is stretched now so I tried again the next day, it's harder I couldn't even insert the whole thing so I took it out after successfully inserting it half way after many errors, the cup and my fingers were covered in blood, I bled again, fair enough it is still healing so I waited a few minutes then tried again… I spent a little over an hour failing to insert it fully, it either unfolds half way and doesn't get it from the start and each time I try it gets progressively more painful and the bleeding never stopped so I gave it a break, this was last night and today I woke up feeling slight pain in my vagina and I'm so devastated, I want to switch to cups, and my vagina is in fact getting a little stretchier every time (I can insert my finger without spending a whole minute now) but I also started feeling shame because of all the things we hear about losing the hymn even though I know that they're incorrect and hymns are elastic but having your toilet water red and washing blood off your cup, fingers, and panties for an hour makes you wonder if you're doing the right thing.
also, am I doing anything wrong? like I said I've done my research and from my point of view I have less elastic vaginal muscles that need to be trained but the blood makes me worry.
PS: I'm a shorter girl, 5ft/1.52m.

No. 134132

samefag I mentioned that I'm on the shorter side because shorter people have smaller bodies and shorter girls have smaller vaginas. sorry if it seemed relevant.

another thing is I don't have issues with my periods other than the painful cramps so I don't think there is a problem with my vaginal opening other than being too small.

I already explained that a woman with small body will have small body meaning a smaller vagina, it's not rocket science, sure not ALL short women have smaller ones and not all tall women have a bigger one. please think for once, I've been waiting for other girl's input on it for help and you're not being useful…if you don't have nothing useful to say please don't accuse me of thing I'm not, thanks you.

The vagina is not smaller in shorter women, anon. And even if that was the case, why would you assume cups are made for tall women? If you're not a male, you have some other issue like vaginismus. Did you read anything anywhere about using the cup? I'd suggest doing that instead of asking us here because most of your questions can be easily answered by googling. You also shouldn't be shoving anything into your dry vagina…

I've had a guy hurt me with his fingernails once, idk if cuts happen in there like normal, but it will heal itself hopefully with no issues just take it easy lol

No. 134167

Okay, despite the "short girls have smaller vaginas" that sounds sus af, I'm going to answer genuinely because I've been a tool about vaginas too.
I'm a virgin and my road to being comfortable with cup was: using tampons, masturbating with one finger, two fingers, using the cup. And still the few first insertions were not easy, just to be clear. It needed some practice.
So my advice would be prepare yourself, stretch. Don't insert the cup by force, that's why you get friction and blood. If you can't fit it in, you need to be more stretched and relaxed. Try masturbating vaginally. If that's not your thing, just use your fingers to stretch, but be gentle.

No. 134172

I literally just did something similar a couple weeks ago. I cut myself around the vaginal opening in the shower with a sharp fingernail while I was cleaning myself while on the last day of my period and making sure I had no leftover blood there. It was a bitch to heal and it hurt to walk but I think the outer vagina is more difficult to heal than inside. I couldn't wear underwear or use toilet paper for a week or else I would irritate it more because of the friction.

I’m sure this has been asked before so I apologize for not going back and looking, but can any anons give me some advice on having real orgasms instead of tension ones? I always thought that I could only get there if I hold my breath and tighten my muscles but I just learned that it’s not as long lasting/ good as a relaxed orgasm?

No. 134196

The first time I masturbated and had an orgasm I wasn't planning on having an orgasm. I was never into masturbating and only orgasmed with a partner.
I was having phone sex with my boyfriend and was rubbing myself. I had no expectation of an orgasm, just rubbing myself because I guess it was more fun than laying there. Wasn't even focusing too much on the rubbing. Then, out of nowhere, boom, I came.
If I were you, I'd read something erotic or watch a steamy scene from a movie and just lay back, rub and enjoy. Don't think about getting yourself to orgasm. Be in the moment and enjoy what you're watching/reading.

Don't hold your breath, just use slow deep breaths and relax into whatever you're doing.

For the past couple of years I've been dealing with vaginal and vulvar dryness. It seems to get bad 2 weeks before my period, where I feel like I develop small tears on my vulva, mostly around my inner labia. I don't see anything really except some redness, but it hurts to wash myself in the shower. I don't even think about masturbating around this time.

I've been tested for everything, am not having sex right now, shower every day using just water, use sensitive laundry detergent, and wear cotton underwear so I don't know what it would be. My doctor wanted to give me estrogen cream but I was wondering if there was anything a little milder that could help. I've heard both good and bad things about Vitamin E, coconut oil, and OTC dryness creams. Anyone have any suggestions?

No. 134241

There are different types of orgasms?
I thought that it was just Freudian bullshit (man have one; and women and receptive gay men have another).

No. 134246


I've got one super long inner labia, but it has next to no sensation. Like, I can feel it when it rubs up against underwear or something, but the only sensation I feel is discomfort (from friction, mostly). Same with during masturbation, I feel like it limits arousal because it just gets so sore after a while if it's touched too much. Sore and it dries out.

Is this abnormal? Anyone else experience this, and what should I do about it??

No. 134258

Are you on birth control? I get this sometimes on the implant. Had a nurse accuse me of having herpes but my tests all came back clear and eventually a doc told me it could be hormone related because of the implant. He prescribed me daktakort which is a hydrocortisone cream. It helped a lot. Not saying you need this, but it could be the same problem I had. I would get paper cut-like tears around my vulva and on my perineum, sometimes it got so bad I would get a sting when I sat or moved in a way that caused a tear. I hope this helped a bit, and you are not alone.

Seeing these pics reminded me of a porn movie I've seen recently where the guy, who was probably used to seeing labia-less porn vaginas, had to get it on with a girl who had prominent lips. When her panty came off, he stared at her junk in surprise and went 'WHAT ARE THOSE???. I felt sorry for the poor girl.

I'm a mix I guess. My inner labia isn't super visible and it's asymmetrical. My outer lips are kind of puffy but you can see a bit of inner lips peaking out.

Starting to wonder if I'm in early peri-menopause. Since hitting 30 my periods have become very light and the space between periods is so long that my period tracking app is of no use to me at this point, the only way I know my period is coming now is that I experience vaginal dryness in the days beforehand…

I'm trying to treat it myself because my doctor makes me uncomfortable, I ordered 100% cotton panty liners because they're supposed to be better than other panty liners or even pads. Problem is they're really too small for me, I still get discharge in my underwear on the sides.

i think that's what most of us 5's are talking about too, it's still considered an innie. i have inner labia, they're just very short. hence it's an innie. looking up a term for a vagina is probably like looking up a disease, you're only going to see extreme cases of it, not the average.

anyway, i know it's not a conclusive pool of people or anything, but i feel like cosmo may have exaggerated just how rare it is as a kind of virtue signal. i wonder if there's been any actual statistical studies lol

No. 134387

saying how women look is misrepresented in porn is nothing new, but yea i'm wondering this too cus it's pretty natural for the labia literally named "minora" to be covered by the bigger one. doesn't mean women with their labia hanging out are weird of course, both are natural.

though i'm wondering if they mean a really specific shape and we are getting the wrong idea from their ridiculously bad illustrations.

i thought that too at first but i don't think so. i went back and read all the descriptions again and none of the other ones describe any kind of innie. they're literally saying just the outer lips covering the inner lips is muh unrealistic expectation. i know women with long labia get needlessly hated on but acting like innies are basically just a porn thing doesn't help anyone.

Only thing I've noticed (im also in my thirties) is that during my last period I had night sweats (only once) and during the period before the last one I had those in two nights. I thought it was a normal thing (hormones change during your life etc etc ) but then my friend told me maybe it was a sign of perimenopause and I started freaking out. Thanks bitch. Anyways I went to my gyno and told her about the night sweats and she told me not to worry about it unless they start becoming more regular.
Anyways you shouldnt be starting perimenopause that early ( i read you could get arthritis, among other bad things), so perhaps you should go to the gyno so they can test your blood and see your level of hormones.

Not sure if i got an UTI or a BV..

I just had sex for the first time (a condom was used, but I am sure he got bacteria inside) last month and after that I had this green-ish shade always appear on my pantyliner. I went to planed parenthood and they said it was a BV and I got treatment for it. It appeared to go away, and I made sure to follow the instruction they gave me. Then, I meet up with him after it had gone away and we did not have sex, but he did try to finger me and although my pantyliner isn't as green as before with the BV it's slightly similar. I don't feel any burning or itching, or anything , but it just feels uncomfortable. A bit irritated, maybe? Then I saw one of the "DumbBitch" memes pics and remembered that his nails looked kind of gross, so maybe it's an UTI?? I don't have insurance and can't afford to pay for a doctor consultation right now… What should I do?

No. 134654


It could be BV, but you need to get tested to be sure. If it is bv you need antibiotic. If it is an STD (like trich for example) you need to get proper treatment.

Don't have sex. Don't put soap in there. Don't douch. Change your underwear constantly.

A uti would give you problems when you pee. Sometimes it can feel like you still need to pee even though you are done.

No. 134655


Also, you can try planned parenthood if possible. Make your appointment asap. If you can't, just show up very early as a walk-in (ie. As soon as the open be there).

No. 134670

A uti would give you symptoms in your bladder or symptoms when emptying it, any hint of green discharge is usually BV

No. 134672

If he touched his dick in between touching you it could still be an std, trich can cause green discharge.

No. 134707

if it was BV before it probably is again. your ph level is probably off if you're this sensitive.

No. 134714

I don't have medical insurance though. Last time I went to PlanedParenthood (which is an hour drive from where I live, btw) they charged me almost $200 to tell me I had a BV and she only prescribed me with one pill to take for two days… I am definitely not having sex, trying to avoid soap or anything scented, and I don't change underwear constantly but I do change the pantyliner a lot.

And the thing about the UTI is that I have always been a person that just pees too often and a lot… so I don't know if I am having anything extra.

I read the symptoms online and they just sound so similar that I don't even know anymore. For sure I am not letting that jerk near me though.
I personally don't smell anything out of the ordinary. There is a smell, but it's not "horridly gross that there is definitely something wrong here" kind of smell. Then the other thing is, I don't always have a working sense of smell for some reason, so I am afraid that I am maybe missing something.

I am trying to remember, and I do think he touched his dick before me.. But the discharge I have now is less "green" than the one from last time though. I went to Planned Parenthood with the intention to test for the trich the first time actually because my pantyliner was very green at first. When I got there, since I don't have insurance, they said I should be examined instead before testing since it could end up costing more. The gyno examined me and said there was no sign of green discharge (even though my liner was still slightly yellow/green by then).

Okay this is what I am also thinking. Can I go and buy some over the counter BV medicine for it? Who do I have to go to to see why my ph is off? Yes, I am sensitive and it sucks so much.

Thank you all for giving me advice by the way! I don't have any girl friends I can talk to this about sadly.

No. 134723

you can get BV meds at pharmacy, i think you have to ask the pharmacist though. usually with PH you can just look stuff up online, like diet. usually yogurt helps a lot! i don't know i'd call the guy a jerk since BV is usually either because the guy is dirty or your vaginal ph is sensitive. it's not like a standard std where the guy is unsafe or something, it's more like a yeast infection.

No. 134726

The studies done with yogurt aren't really conclusive. The bacteria in Greek yogurt isn't really the same or the amount you need to help your vagina. There's probiotic pills specifically for women that can be helpful. Diet can help for sure too.

Tbh I'd rather pay for the good stuff and be hurting financially than not treating it properly and have it become a huge, and literally smelly, problem.

Furthermore, be assertive when you visit doctors, gynecologists, clinics, etc. Get what you need within your means.

And I know we don't tend to think ahead all the time and I hate to be that old prude, but think before you have sexual relations. If you can't afford to treat or take care of any type of accident, then be more cautious and picky.

I will ask at the pharmacy if I can get any today, and will look into the PH balanced diet.
Well he is kind of a jerk tbh, and I lost trust with him. I should won’t be near him.

I will see if there are any of those pills at the local store when I stop by the pharmacy, and look into the diet.
Well, the last time I went it didn’t even feel like I was getting “the good stuff” so it just felt like a complete waste of money. i don’t even know if they are even open, lots of places are closing near by. Then right now with the shortage of basic stuff and jobs are getting cut off, like mine it’s hard to spend that. I get your point about abstaining from it in the meantime though. My area isn’t really affected by the virus itself right now but everything is going on lockdown mode a lot faster than expected, so I am suddenly not able to take care of it.

again, i don't really get why you lost trust in him, unless i missed something. BV doesn't mean your boyfriend has a disease or is dirty or anything, and it doesn't mean he has bad bacteria on him either. i suggest you read below, because you seem to be confused about what BV is.

I developed it with my ex fiancé. I swear that due to his unemployment for 3 years and my constantly working to support us gave him ample time to work up a porn habit. His dick got curved from all the wanking. He was unattractive to me but I was in denial. He wanted me to go to a doctor, I wanted him to turn me on. I ended up dumping him and was scared that I was broken and couldn't have sex. First guyi hot serious with after that relationship turned me on and I had absolutely no issue taking his dick. Our first time having sex was mind blowing and since I had a very long dry spell I was very excited and into it.

The first time I tried to have sex literally every single part of my body seized up, like my hands literally became claws and I couldn't even be fingered, and within seven months I was able to finally do penetration! In those 7 months I had 3 different partners so I think that had something to do with it, with every different guy I got a little bit further and felt more comfortable with myself.
A big thing for me was becoming more comfortable with sex, so I'd try to think about sex without having my legs immediately clamp together, I don't know if you have that "external" response like I did or not. Another thing that really helped me was gently masturbating with a warm, wet washcloth in the shower– by taking away any type of physical pain, I was able to relax my pelvic + uterine muscles a little bit more each time.I'd recommend trying to starfish more when you masturbate to try and just keep all your muscles relaxed, as well as being open with any partners cause the shame letting them down made my anxiety worse in my opinion. I really think one of the most important things is not being mad at yourself about it.
Good luck anon! I promise its something you should be able to get over yourself in time, but if it takes longer than a year or so I'd recommend seeing a professional or talking to your gyno about it! Also, do you have a history of sexual abuse? I didn't, but if you do, it might be helpful to work through that with a professional first, and the rest might follow. I know its so hard because it really is all in your head but you can do it!

I haven't gotten my period. It's been 32 days since the last period started and not one single drop of blood since then. It is impossible for me to be pregnant since the last time I had sex was 4 months ago. So what tf is wrong with my body? I should add, that I stopped taking hormonal birth control in January, but the cycles after that were all normal and very punctual…What is wrong with me? Am I pregnant with Jesus? Do I have a disease? Am I getting into menopause in my twenties? pls help

I recently had inspiration hit me and decided to grow my nails and care for them but now the problem that had arised is that it hurts to masturbate. I don't put anything in my vagina so that is okay but it hurts to rub my clit.
I don't have any sex toys since I live in a Islamic state and idk where to get them.
Is my only solution to cut my nails or to never flick my bean again?

I've started having a longer space between periods some months (am in my early 30s) Periods are often delayed by ten days or so and then my periods are pretty light when they do come.

Can't find any info on what causes the delay apart from vague stuff like stress. Another search result is always pcos but I'm in my thirties and wouldn't that cause problems earlier?

I've been having delayed periods for months and similarly my premenstrual symptoms actually show up on time and are dragged out for ages til my period comes

I've come to terms with the fact I'll probably seek labiaplasty at some point in my life. I have a really cute little clit so I feel like my vag would be so pretty if it wasn't for the brown tipped floppy outer labia that gets tangled up in each other and chafes in my underwear.

My bf doesn't mind and would probably be horrified but like I can't enjoy him going down on me or having his face anywhere near cause I don't want him to see it. It's just so bad for my self esteem and ability to feel sexy at all.

Stds were and still are common and can be really dangerous, unless you're doing everything completely safe and both people don't even touch their private area before touching the other person at all I think it's a valid thing to worry about
Idk about other places but in my country you don't get pap smears or std tests for no special reason, you'd have to ask for it and it costs a lot, and I'm not sure many people actually get checked regularly and since you don't show symptoms most of the time until it's too late and there's damage done to your organs… It just seems very risky to be so loose unless you can afford to get std tests and treatment after every partner or avoid every type of contact without condoms which is harder than you might think

I’m the anon you’re shaming and if you read my post, I didn’t even have penetrative sex with two of the guys I was with. Sorry you live somewhere where sexual health isn’t common but don’t project, I get an exam every year, I always use protection, etc. If you think someone having sex with 5 guys by the time they’re 20 is “loose”, that’s definitely a cultural difference.

This. This was my point, stop shouting out basic std facts at anyone who mentions having multiple sexual partners at some point in their history.

No. 135224

A plastic one yes. You can get dildos that are made out of dual density silicone and feel pretty close to the real thing but most toys feel different to a penis

No. 135225

How so? The shallow 1/3rd of the vagina is sensitive to touch while the deeper 2/3rds are sensitive to distension. It's the literal physical volume of the object sliding in and out, expanding and distending the vagina that stimulates it during sex.

Are you literally talking about the man fucking you not being present? Because that's obvious.

No. 135227

Nta but it's all about firmness. You can spend 150 dollars on a dual density toy and that's going to feel close to real but apart from that they feel different.

Vixen Creations is a brand I'd recommend if someone wants that realism in a toy

And it's not just virgins who don't like to sleep around and are concerned about the risks, also if you want to stop slut shaming then stop virgin shaming too, everyone here was just being factual, stop feeling so attacked. If you feel attacked maybe inside you're actually ashamed of what you are.

You're a woman, of all people you should know that insult means nothing. In those 7 months I probably had sex every other day with my boyfriend which most definitely resulted in me being a lot "looser" than that anon. Fuck off with that insult

Can't help with the insurance part since I'm a european but I went when I was 18 first, because I wanted to get my first checkup + birth control pills + pap smear. Some girls go earlier, usually if they have issues with their periods/infections or is they're sexually active. My younger sister is 18 now and she's too scared to go and it's impossible to convince her to do it.
Best thing that I can tell you is that gynecologists don't care what you look like or who you are, this is their job and they see thousands of vaginas so there's nothing to feel nervous about.
My first visit was like this: I was told to sit on that chair where you spread your legs, she took some cold metal clamp to look inside of me, then she did a vaginal ultrasound with pic related, I remember her lubing it up and me being slightly scared lmao

First step is to get off 4chan and realise the "roastbeef" is actually how most normal healthy women are. Literally no man that's in love with you will not care, if anything he'll just be happy that he's getting some.

When i was young all of my exposure to how pussy should look like was porn and i was ashamed of my vagina but then i went to art school and got exposed to 1) dating women 2) female artists doing projects on femininity which made me realize there's more than one type of way the labia will look and they're all fine. I'm seeing so many women struggle with non-conforming to some idiotic standard set up by porn of all things, if only we had proper sexual education that would actually expose young people how different genitalia can be we could save so many from unnecessary embarrassment and provide so many with so much better sex without shame.

Do you want to though? You say you're scared and it seems like he's never seen you naked or been intimate in other ways first?

this might be long and gross (sorry) and i'm not really sure how to word this, but is it possible to get blackheads on your groin? i've never had to deal with them before (i've rarely ever got pimples) i was in the shower and saw a black thing on my groin area, i didn't know what it was so i panicked and removed it (it didn't bleed though), but now that i think it's a blackhead i'm worried that i did something wrong?? i know popping pimples can leave scars but i don't know if it's the same for blackheads. it was about the size of a pinhead i think.
this is probably a dumb thing to be worried about but i really don't know what to do, or if i should do anything. i'm a clean person (shower every day, wash my hands, etc) so i don't know why it happened, or if it's something i should be worried about or not.
can stress cause them? why did it appear down there instead of on my face? i'm so confused. sorry this is so long but i'm really lost

Yes, that is possible. It could have been an ingrown hair, too.

Had quite a long session with a new toy a couple nights ago, while I only used it vaginally I woke up yesterday with rectal pain and still have it today.

Now for years I've had pelvic discomfort from sex and no amount of scans and exams ever found what was causing it.. rectal pain is new though. A google search brings up endo as a possible cause and I've heard endo is often hard to find on scans. Does anyone here with endo experience this? Any opinions on what else it could be?

Yes. Go take a test ASAP. Even if you're not pregnant, something could be wrong (not necessarily though, could just be stress or any number of factors so don't freak out just yet) and you should see a doctor if you're able to, but taking a pregnancy test is the first step here.

You should not necessarily be worried. Take a test to ensure you're not pregnant, but birth control can make you stop having periods. That's normal. It's abnormal if you stop taking birth control and don't get your period back for several months. No need to freak out anon just take a pregnancy test to be sure.

My labia goes all the way down to my butthole, it's like I don't even have a perineum. I've never given birth and I don't remember if it was always there or if it happened naturally with time, or maybe it's just a weird thing that popped up from straining? It never hurt or anything, it's just there and looks like an extension of my vagina. I'm kinda bummed about it. I also wonder if it's causing me to have health issues down there frequently, despite being very hygienic.

I'm not quite as bad but I remember when I was younger I couldn't understand why pantyliners were even a thing.. All through my twenties I had no need for them. In the last few years though I get wet any time I go walking and I'm like oh that's why! No idea what changed.

If you get wet just from walking and not due to your period cycle maybe you need to tighten your muscles down there. That's almost incontinence anon
