Holy shit, this makes me nervous as fuck. I've had a IUD for 3 years now and never a problem. This year I have to take it out and put a new one, I freaking hope my doc does not find any similar issue.>>145481
My experience with IUD so far is 10/10.
If hormones from pills fuck you up, try a copper IUD>no hormones>98% effective (more than condom and pill iirc)>lasts for years>have it checked from time to time in normal routine schedule, no pills to swallow everyday>if you change your mind and want a baby you can have it removed and go for it whenever you please
The only side effect for me was to have longer and more copious periods for the first year, but then it went back to normal.
Speak to your doc for more info, you might want to give it a try.
Probably no1curr but I'm op, went to the doctor today and it turns out my IUD is in the right position still, just the strings are coiled up inside now. It's not that big of a deal until I need to get it out.
What's crazy is that on the ultrasound, they incidentally found that I have an cyst on my left ovary that's the same size as the ovary itself. So that's wild. Good thing I got my IUD checked out, so they can keep an eye on my fucked up ovary now lmao.

I bought pic related and I started using it on my body a few weeks ago (no results yet, maybe it's too soon?) but imagine my disappointment when I read the instructions and they say IPL cannot be used on genital area.
So no cream for my specific needs exist, uh?
Fucking useless scientists put a dumbass driving a car in space but cannot get me a quick and safe vulva shaving cream? smh
oh shit good luck to you and your ovary anon>>145528>>145534
This has warmed me up to and IUD even more. I’ve been considering, but honestly the pain of the procedure scares me quite a bit. I’m kind of a baby.
I guess everyone reacts differently to the insertion procedure.
I took ibuprofen before undergoing the procedure, it still hurt but for me it was bearable, it's just the usual discomfort of a gynecological inspection + the pain of the doctor inserting a cannula in your cervix to put the IUD in place.
If the doc is good and experienced he/she will be fast and reduce the painful sensation with a quick insertion.
Afterwards you will have cramps for a couple hours, but you can take extra ibuprofen to ease the pain.
After that, you will not feel anything at all and you will be free.
Anon from >>145534
It's the kind of pain that you bare through whilst it happening and for a couple hours after, whilst it was being inserted there was a nurse holding my hand and being really supportive. If you're gonna do it maybe take a friend with you to take care of you after. Like i said in my last post it's so worth it if you're not looking to get pregnant.
Another note; and this might just be in the uk, but the doctor won't call you when it's time to get it removed/checked up, so keep a mental note of roughly when you got it inserted, i use the period tracking app 'Clue' and logged it in there. it's not like after it expires it's dangerous or anything, my mum is menopausal and hers expired and the doctor said they could leave it there forever without a problem.
You can totally get the pubes safely with one of these! I've done this, not the same device but a similar home IPL thing. The hair on the mons is just like doing your legs really.
All you wanna do differently for the genitals is basically cover the bits that you need to protect with your hand (you might need to sit in front of a mirror for this). So use one hand to cover your labia minora and use the other to zap the hairs on the labia minora. That way you can't accidentally laser any pink bits which will really sting and can burn you. Godspeed anon.
That's good to hear.
But then why do the instructions say it can't be used outside of bikini line?
Did it work for you? How much did the growth of hair reduce?
I am at second application but everything looks the same tbh.
thanks for this info anon, considering this in the future
>Hormonally i've not noticed huge changes
I thought the copper IUD didn't have any hormonal side effects anyway? isn't that one of the benefits of the copper IUD?>>145556>waxing you go in expecting a world of hurt but it's not that bad and the pain goes away after a day or so
wait why would it hurt for a day or so? I've waxed other areas of my body and its hurt just for a few seconds. is it a stinging sensation you get that lasts for a day?

I’m kinda wondering if I don’t have vaginismus at all, and if my vagina is just… physically closed off? I feel like if he was breaking my hymen, it wouldn’t feel like he was hitting a wall. Is this normal?
File: 1596443286975.jpeg (18.45 KB, 526x278, ENtPUKlWkAgYmE5.jpeg)
You should definitely see a gyno. Either your hymen is unusually thick or you have vaginismus, or both. I've attached a picture of what hymens can look like, but I got the hunch this is vaginismus
The doc already checked by himself that you are a virgin by inspecting your vagina.
I know it's not easy to stop feeling uncomfortable, but his/her job is to look at your medical issues, not to judge you.
I've heard of a tilted uterus (is pretty common) but never a crooked vagina. Do you think she meant your uterus is tipped? That can cause painful sex and one in every five women has it to some extent.
I have it to an extent where tampons are ok but it interferes with sex
Careful with these meme drawings anons. I've never seen anyone with "hymens" like c, d and e, and apart from them being unrealistic as fuck, b looks like a serious rare condition where you need surgical intervention just to let your periods out. The only one that looks like a realistic vagina is a).
In general be very skeptic about any online information about hymens. Chances are more likely than not that they are a massive patriarchal meme that comes from seriously hurting virgins in their first time and making them bleed ("something must have broken, it's her body being like this!!" so men can avoid taking responsibility for hurting their girlfriends and wives during sex and have an excuse to be as rough as they want). Fun fact your "hymen" never really goes away, it only stretches and opens a bit wider, hence why b, c, d, e, look absolutely ridiculous; it shouldn't be completely closed at all or to the point you can't get any fingers or tampons. That anon most likely has vaginismus rather than a "thick hymen".
Seconding this. I showered with my mom until I was about seven or eight, and people told me that
was weird. Showering with her when you're an adult and her touching your labia is… unnerving. I would ask a therapist what they think.
Are you getting enough foreplay and using lube?
It used to happen to me all the time when I fucked guys that I wasn't really into because I was young dumb and didn't know that things could be better.
I was fairly wet, we teased around a lot before getting to it but I think I tend to run dry after awhile due to nexplanon and the friction alone.
I'll just have to go buy my favorite lube again, I have some silicone shit but I fucking hate it. Anyways, thanks for the input anon. I just wanted to be sure.
Men will shit on your pussy even if it is the ””perfect pink innie type”” that is promoted as the ideal.
Inner labia too big = ew roast beef, you have had sex with 1000s of people
Too small inner labia = you look like a child, I want a real woman
Literally cannot win
As long as you don't fuck absolute degenerate coomers no man is going to care what colour your pussy is or how long your labia are, they're over the moon to be near one at all
However if you're going to insist on shaving and keeping everything fresh for them then make sure to tell them if their dick smells or their balls need shaved, equality is important
After having intense sex, does anyone else's vagina feel, like, it's sort of almost falling out? God, that sounds so bad, but I swear it's not as bad as it sounds. Like, the inside is so swollen from the sex that it kind of pushes out a bit. Not labia, I mean the actual vagina. And I'm not "loose" or anything either, I have the opposite problem where I'm too tight and it can be extremely painful for both me and the guy.
TLDR does anyone's vagina get so inflammed after sex sometimes that it slightly pushes outward
I think it only happens if I have multiple sessions. I've been limiting sex to once a day whenever I have it, and that's made a difference. It doesn't happen too often, but whenever it happens it really freaks me out and I can't really find anything fitting my experience.
Also, it always goes away within 12-24 hours and has never resulted in any kind of infection or change in discharge or anything like that.
another samefag, but after reading a bit and thinking I'm pretty sure the fact that I completely shave everything contributes too. Apparently being completely shaven makes internal inflammation way more likely and I already feel inflamed after shaving, even without sex.
Guess I'll stop fully shaving my vag and just trim, and be more careful with sex.
Still, if anyone relates please chime in.

He shouldn't be hitting your cervix. Normally, the cervix isn't directly at the end of the vaginal canal; it's slightly on the anterior. During sex the penis is supposed to go a little bit past it. I think you should see a gynecologist, because it almost sounds like you have a retroverted uterus. They're pretty common.

Have any of you sweet anons any positive experience with hormonal contraception?
I used the mini pill and the tricyclic pill (? English isn’t my first language) when I was around 18, the first one made me bleed a lot and both made my pussy dry up and my libido became lower. I haven’t used any hormonal contraception since then, but now that I’m pretty much sure that I don’t want kids, I want a more reliable method of contraception.
I also suffer from PMS for the two or so weeks between ovulation and the period. Some information states that hormonal contraception might make it better, some say it can become worse.
I might have a heightened risk of blood clots as well, so I’m thinking about getting an implant.
Any advice? And can anyone share any positive stories or is it just horrible and not even worth considering?
Have you thought about a copper IUD? I have one and it can fuck with your periods and make cramping worse, but otherwise won’t affect you like the hormonal stuff.
I got so so sick from my hormonal implant and basically any birth control pill I tried I’d just get the worst symptoms on the box for each one. The copper IUD isn’t perfect but I haven’t had any problems yet which is rare for me with birth control.
i use nexplanon (a etonogestrel bc that is implanted in the arm). i've had it 4.5 years, replaced once at 3 year mark. i still get my period, and it's really inconsistent and sometimes i bleed for like a month straight HOWEVER it's the only flaw (and everyone is different of course!!!). i still wouldn't trade it for anything. i got it because the pain was 10/10, i couldn't walk, leave bed, i was puking, and now i have none of that. my (serious, long term) bf and i also never use condoms and we've never had an issue thankfully!!! (be safe tho!!)
i recommend it to everyone and just advise to pay attention to your body of course.
I had the implant. It ruined my libido, made my pussy dry as fuck, and destroyed my mental health to the point where I wanted to kill myself. No emotions whatsoever, just felt grey and empty all the time. Ruined three years of my life and I am still struggeling with side effects like an irregular period two years later. I also bled for a year straight and my periods got worse and worse. It was alright for like half a year though.
Plus it was placed too deep so I had to have multiple attempts to dig it out of my arm. Fun stuff.
I had/have very heavy periods, horrible pms, migranes, nausea and horriblr cramping. I'd still chose that over hormonal birth control.
i've tried several different pills and every single one of them led to this:
- vomiting nearly every day a bit after taking it
- panic attacks every day
- developed severe depression, suicidal every day
- became extremely irritable and paranoid
- lost my period for a year and a half after stopping
- developed weird, isolated black hairs on my body and face
for me and other women i know, when one pill brings you hell, there isn't really any other one that won't be hellish too. women with "some" bad symptoms caused by the pill may have luck in trying others, but generally if the experience is super bad none will be friendly
get a non-hormonal option
Thank you for your replies!
I‘m gonna give the copper IUD another thought.
Anyone else who‘s had any experience with it?
I‘m kinda worried about the toxicity of copper and having it in your body for a prolonged time. Also, how exactly do they fixate it in your uterus?
is it actually LONG or does it just have more follicles that extend further than most people? i have pube follicles that kinda go down my thigh
I had that, went to laser epilasion a couple of times to get rid of it.
It really helped. Ididnt go there as frequently as i should so maybe thats why my pubic hair isnt completely gone, but it does make them thinner/shorter/less dense. If you're really disturbed by it, i suggest you save some money for it. Although trimming is enough imo.
If you're worried about copper go get tested for allergies before you implant a IUD.
I've had one for 5 years now, everything went smooth, never experienced any trouble and the insertion was painful but tolerable because my gyno was really quick and competent.
It gets inserted by placing a cannula through your cervix, the IUD slides from the cannula inside your uterus. Strings dangle out of your cervix for future removal of the IUD. You won't notice them inside of you, and you can keep using internal tampons without any problem.
I am going to insert a new one this year, best birth control decision of my life.
as dumb as this sounds, for me it was more of being in the mindset of "I can squirt if I just believe in myself enough" than anything else. It helps if you're really relaxed and happy going into it. Never been able to do it if I wasn't in that state. For me, I also have to physically like, push my vaginal muscles outwards to make it happen. It doesn't just happen spontaneously, although for some people it can.
If you're worried about accidentally peeing, make sure you go to the bathroom beforehand and don't drink anything until you're done. Put down a towel just to be safe, too. Even if it does happen, try not to be too hard on yourself about it. I do notice a difference between squirting and peeing, but tbh it's not that pronounced, so it's easy to fuck it up. You might just have to accept that while you're learning.
No such thing as "squirting glans".
A vagina drool is one thing (it's just abundant production of the normal lubricant that vagina produces), "squirt" is an invention of porn industry.
It can easily happen to have pee stored in your bladder and the friction and poking by the dick can cause an involuntary release of piss (happened to me a few times, was really aroused and lost control of the bladder a bit); you can call it "squirting" if you like, but it's actually you pissing all over your man's dick while fucking.
Fun fact: even if you start fucking and/or masturbating with an empty bladder, it can easily get filled during action anyway. This happened to me as well.
Diff anon. I had an ex who was obsessed with making women squirt using his fingers, there was definitely an orgasm involved but yeah as someone who drinks too much coffee and not enough water.. I could tell the liquid was at least partly urine
I'm pretty grossed out by semen though so tbh both sexes have gross shit come out of them mid orgasm lol
>>147534>No such thing as "squirting glans"
NTA, but nobody is using that terminology. In my earlier post, I specifically mentioned the Skene's glands, which are glands located on the anterior wall of the vagina, near the urethra. While female ejaculation hasn't been definitively proven as being distinct from urine, a prominent theory is that the Skene's glands are the source of the ejaculation, rather than the urethra.
>"squirt" is an invention of porn industry.
I can't find anything corroborating the claim that even just the term "squirt" was invented by the porn industry. The concept of female ejaculation has been noted for centuries, and has been studied (albeit not much) by the scientific community. To claim the notion in itself is an invention of the porn industry is objectively false.
>It can easily happen to have pee stored in your bladder and the friction and poking by the dick can cause an involuntary release of piss (happened to me a few times, was really aroused and lost control of the bladder a bit); you can call it "squirting" if you like, but it's actually you pissing all over your man's dick while fucking.
This seems to presume that the bladder wasn't fully empty to begin with. Are you suggesting that you and others who have "pissed all over their man's dick while fucking" are somehow unaware that they had a significant amount of urine left in their bladders, despite having gone to the bathroom prior to sex?
>even if you start fucking and/or masturbating with an empty bladder, it can easily get filled during action anyway
Again, how is this happening? Where is the urine coming from? Did the person drink something prior to sex? Did they not fully empty their bladder prior to sex? Is their bladder magically filling with urine during sex/masturbation for some other
reason?>>147567>Do you think your body keeps a little pouch of water as reserve, just in case you feel like squirting today?>a little pouch of water as reserve>anybody with half a brain equating squirting to water
Women don't ejaculate as there is no biological need for a woman to ejaculate. Sex as much as transexuals and idiots want to believe is an evolutionary construct and there are biological reasons for orgasms. A female ejaculating does not make any sense. Women piss yes, but they do not ejaculate. We get wet when aroused to ease the entry of a dick, when females orgasm they tremor, which is the muscles in the vagina contracting inwards to help with sperm flow up to an egg.
Why in the fuck would a woman ejaculate when the goal of fucking at least in a biological sense is for impregnation. Squirting outwards is counter productive. It is mental that this needs to be explained to women.
Stimulating the clit still involves an orgasm that effects the muscle to the ovaries lol. >>147659
I do kegels lady it doesn't bother me if other girls enjoy pissing while having sex, just don't fool yourself into thinking it's a special form of ejaculation.
>>147687>it doesn't bother me if other girls enjoy pissing while having sex, just don't fool yourself into thinking it's a special form of ejaculation.
Clearly it does bother you, since you took the time to reply to me in the first place, then ignored all my evidence/refused to respond to any of my points indicating that squirting may not necessarily be piss. The medical community hasn't been able to confirm what exactly is happening with women who supposedly "ejaculate," (I'll even put it in quotes, just to appease your sperging), so idk why you think you have all the answers regarding this topic?
It honestly sounds like you have some sort of issue with urinary incontinence and are assuming everyone who has ever purported to squirt has the exact same problem, and just can't own up to it. That may be true for some, but angrily insisting that ALL squirting is just piss, offering no evidence for this to be the case other than "I've pissed myself during sex before," just comes across as a cope more than anything else.
also nta but considering that it, uh, travels through part of the urinary tract or the general areas, I would assume the liquid to include trace amounts of urine related molecules even if it isn't actually urine
in any case it's an oversimplification to say it equals urine if it's a massively diluted version. This bothers me because moids already have so many complexes about normal female bodily functions being gross or shameful or whatever, I don't want them to start insisting it's actually pee omg haha ewww when it doesn't smell like it or really leave any other traces
>>147631>I can't find anything corroborating the claim that even just the term "squirt" was invented by the porn industry.

Never heard about "squirt" outside of the porn industry before - I believe modern scientific research were probably made just to "debunk" or at least clarify what is shown in porn movies, where actresses gush long streams of urine while being fucked.
>This seems to presume that the bladder wasn't fully empty to begin with.

Are you serious?
Pee in the bladder is not produced just as a result of drinking.
Never took a piss before going to bed and then waking up because you needed to pee despite it?
In my personal experience, I have "squirted" during sex in different occasions, a couple times because I did have a full bladder before starting to fuck (I literally felt my bladder releasing drops because of me being aroused and the dick thrusting in) but other times I peed before starting and bladder got full with new pee in mid action (same thing happened while masturbating, I usually pee before starting but after finishing the bladder is full).
You definitely sound like a man, you know nothing about how female genitalia nor bladder work.
I don't have a lot of experience, but I also don't enjoy penetration. I keep thinking that maybe I don't do something right, maybe I'm too anxious, maybe I'm not good at taking things up there, but no matter how I try it just feels painful at worst and slightly annoying at best. Even when I masturbate, I get turned off as soon as I try to use fingers. It's weird because everyone else seems to find it amazing.
The thing is, what man will not want to have penetrative sex? I guess I'm bound to be alone or feel unsatisfied for life.
I don't like it very much either. I think I'm not very penetration-compatible with my bf either, it's probably something about dick size, the angle and tighness of my vagina, and other factors but I enjoyed it a bit more with my ex.
On the other hand he's great at making me cum orally or with his hands and he's into some other stuff to make him cum so it hasn't been an issue. I want kids later in life tho so it's with him we'll have to figure something out.
Samefagging but > This seems to presume that the bladder wasn't fully empty to begin with.
I read in a medical book that a bladder produces urine constantly and pretty rapidly
This discussion has happened a million times on here, the advice not to use soap is meant to be 'don't put soap inside your vagina' people usually aren't advising against soap on the outside of your body.
>unless you want a smelly pimply vagina that’s always infected
Was that you until recently??
Putting soap in a vagina sounds like a fetish. I’m sure they sperg about putting soap on the vulva too. And yes. I quit using soap down there because that’s what my doctor recommended when I used regular ol’ soap and still had a strong scent.>>147947
Chilly delicate wash emulsion works for me but when I run out of it i’ll experiment with more brands before i go back to it.>>147952

Uh you shouldn't wash your vag with soap unless its like those special soaps made for it that doesn't mess with your ph level. Soap can seriously fuck up your vag, did you never learn this at biology?
Your vag shouldn't smell that bad either way, if you think it does smell you should probaly go see a gyo to ask for advice
Did I say wash it with soap? I assumed (although I see it was wrong) that it was implied I was talking about special soap for the hoohah, the outside. I cant remember the names but theres plenty. >>148141
Are you asian? A lot of asians dont have those…hormones or whatever they are called under the arms that produce the BO.
you're thinking of apocrine glands! asians have fewer apocrine glands and around 2% of the global population has a gene which means you produce sweat which doesn't contain proteins that bacteria can latch onto and eat, which means they don't excrete and produce B.O.
so if you're an anon who can get away with not wearing deodorant for days you're probably quite lucky! but in the minority. the rest of us get stinky pretty quickly.
Does anyone own period underwear or cups?
I was looking at getting some underwear to try but I am worried reviews I found on various websites/forums could be disingenuous.
Brand-wise, I whittled it down to Modibodi and Thinx, but the critiques I found is the fabric is water proof so it can get really smelly and stay sweaty everywhere underneath, period or not. Additionally, I read that the materials might actually have compounds which are harmful to ones health, or that they are only supposed to last about a year… Since they are pretty pricy I am hesitant about buying a pair but would really love to stop using tampons.
For cups, I read that you are supposed to boil it prior to each use to reduce Toxic Shock Syndrome? They also seem SO big, I am a bit narrow so I am struggling on what size to get or how to expect it to feel? Also would love to switch to a method of managing my period that requires no insertion…
I am leaning towards just using washable pads, however my period is a monster for the first 2 days and basically 7 days worth of blood and clots come out in 48 hours, so I need washable pads that can take a beating, be really absorbent, not smell like blood, and maybe last a while before I have to discard them and drop more money on new ones? I was hoping period panties would be able to simplify things but now I don't know.
Anyone have any experiences/thoughts/preferences?
Been using a cup for five years now. Boiling before each cycle is good advice, but personally I just wash mine well with water and unscented soap whenever my period starts; I've never had a problem. I've accidentally dropped it on my bathroom floor maybe three times and that's the time I boil it for ten minutes.
There are plenty of online quizzes to take to determine what size cup is best for you, but the general rule of thumb is if your flow is regular and you've never given birth, size small should be just fine. If you consider yourself narrow, I'd recommend a small.
Yeah that! Sorry I couldnt remember the name.
There are also some asians that DO smell but they are never taught how to properly "take care " of the smell so they just dont do it.
Also I read somewhere that with age, you start getting some BO down in the vagina area, so thats why I said its good to wash it with (vagina-friendly) soap. Imagine if you washed BO with just water? It would just get worse.
Wow, thank you so much for your feedback! While I would prefer to stop using a product that requires insertion (I usually use tampons), if cups are this successful after so many years I would be willing to give it a try.
Can I ask what brands specifically you both like? Also at what point do you have to throw them away, from your personal experience?
Nta but I use pixie! It's very small compared to most cups. If you fold it like a taco, it's very simple to insert. I've been using one since September (and very often since my birth control is whack right now.)
Also, pro-tip when you're regularly washing them: Never wash in hot water or your cup will turn brown.
First ayrt here - I use a small local brand made in my country so I’m not sure if I can recommend it. But I would say a cup is good for 5-6 years: for example, I actually just recently replaced mine but only because the stem had broken off. The cup part still good.
I’m actually also interested in period underwear to wear on days when I think my period’s coming up, but yeah, the warnings about smell and stuff are making wary too.

Anons I can't tell if there's something wrong with me or if I'm just being paranoid. I feel like my urethra is too close to my vaginal opening, and also that it looks kind of swollen/puffy. Sometimes it burns while I'm masturbating. Wtf is going on. Is this normal? I got tested for a UTI and it came back negative.
Here's a diagram in that helps. The vaginal opening is colored blue and the urethra is green.

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

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

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

anons I need some help. I think there's something wrong with my cervix but I'm not sure. It seems to be abnormally low, even when aroused. I can feel it by inserting my finger as deep as halfway through my first and second knuckle (~a bit over an inch) but the weirder part is that it's not in the centre, it sits on the left side of my pelvis. i can go "around" it with my finger and the virginal canal seems to be of normal length. I booked an appointment for a gynecologist but In on the waiting list for another 2 months. I'm very scared it might be prolapsed. Last time I had sex was years ago.
Pic related, it feels like that but more protruded. Has anyone ever had weird experiences with their cervix?

I'm 80% sure I have a yeast infection, will the gynecologist have to look up my vagina to tell? I'm really self conscious so I want to avoid that as much as possible.
Haven't had a uti in a hot minute but that sounds familiar. There's no shame in a uti, seriously its completely normal for women. You're just going to tell the doctor your symptoms and if it is a uti they'll give you antibiotics.
Maybe it's my country or something but most women I know talk about it like a fact of life because it pretty much is!
There's nothing embarrassing about an UTI anon. Woman's bodies are basically built in such a way that we get them terribly easy and any doctor knows that. But if you really don't wanna go, I have succesfully gotten rid of a UTI with a treatment course from the drugstore before though.>>149540
I'm in my mid-twenties and have never seen a gyno either but like, girls and woman in my country don't go to a gyno unless they're 50+ or have an actual concern/reason to go. We don't go for random check-ups when you're completely healthy and have no reason to go, so I'm not concerned. I didn't even know it was a thing for woman to get an annual check-up in other countries until I saw something trending about it on social media. And I'm from a rich western country with a decent health care system, so it's not like the average person can't afford it or whatever.
If you think it's a UTI try taking lots of d mannose for a few days ASAP.
It has literally worked better for my chronic UTIs than anything the doctor has ever prescribed me. I used to get them twice a month and I'd be in terrible pain, then be put of some vicious medicine like cipro and get a horrible yeast infection. Since I switched to d mannose, at worst I get a twinge once every few months, I take a low dose and it instantly disappears.
You may need antibiotics though if it's been going on a long time, especially if your back starts to hurt.
lol i'm 28 and i've never been either
my friends keep trying to scare me into going and say i might have cervical cancer
there was a lot of pressure on social media a while back with everyone talking about their smear tests and talking down to women who didn't go
i'm sure they think it's very noble and i know that my way of thinking is flawed but it really sticks in my craw
i don't think anybody should feel bullied or pressured to have an intrusive test like that if they feel unsafe, i don't think trying to scare somebody with the threat of cancer is very understanding
also like, bold of you to assume i don't want to die
I don't know what age group first started getting the HPV vaccine but I never got it. Seeing as I had one of the two 'bad strains' of it that's what made my cervical changes more worrying. It was a stressful couple of years monitoring it for further changes.
Did most here get the vaccine?
It's not "social media pressure", it's raising awareness because there's a lot of women who died of cancer at young age, which could totally be prevented if only they went for a check-up regularly, and a lot of them just didn't know it's a thing they should do. It's for your own good, dying of cancer is a really shitty way to die; but in all honesty, if you don't care about your health and life, you don't have to go. There are chances you'll be fine anyway.>>149592
I got two vaccines for the HPV types that come with the highest cancer risk but not the rest; and the only reason I got them is because my mom who is a nurse learnt about the possibility to have these from one of the doctors. Otherwise it's really uncommon in my country for women to even know it's an option, and additionaly, it's really expensive to have these, unfortunately.
I didn't get it. My mother was convinced I'd be a virgin til marriage so "I didn't need it" and I think she said two girls died from it. I'm not angry though. I am terrified of shots and overall I'm pretty wary of new medicine. >>149540
If you're sexually active, please at least get tested for STD's. I never got tested because I didn't have symptoms, until a new partner insisted I get tested before we had sex. Thankfully I did, because I had chlamydia. Literally 0 symptoms of anything wrong, and I have no idea how long I had it for.
go to the doctor you fucking child
>uwu i want to die
then neck yourself
Some doctors are rough though. I think a good way to avoid trouble is to stick to a female doctor that has good reviews for being gentle, or going to planned parenthood.
I've read a testimony of a woman who went to the gyno when she was like, 15 and said she was sexually active, and when asked she admitted she had had multiple partners and the (female) gyno had a weird behaviour. Later she did her a pap smear that was especially painful and the woman suspects it was a sort of "punishment". Unfortunately I'm sure there's tons of doctors with shitty views who can't help but bring their useless morals in their work. Not that I think 15 year olds should have lots of sex but gynecological abuse is not the way to solve that.
I stretch the skin before I put the razor on. Sometimes I cover the delicate spots (like my clit) with my fingers to protect them.
As for the lumps, definitely get it checked out. If they're hard, they might be an STD/STI like HPV, but honestly there's no way to be sure if it's that or scar tissue or just normal vaginal lumps (I have them!) since you probably don't have frame of reference.
Thank you all for your nice replies, anons.
I don't think that it is something serious - it might just be leftovers and general just feels like a little bit of weird skin hanging around.
I will ask my doctor about it regardless - just to make sure, like you suggested.
As for the shaving part - I equipped myself with shaving gel, a large mirror, the razor and will try getting rid of the hairs now.
Wish me luck lol
they take their time but yeah they eventually deflate on their own, i read hot water helps unclogs them too. hope yours goes down soon anon>>149935
mine have been around the size of a grape, they dont hurt or anything so am kinda lucky
Nta but >still have problems with is sticking my fingers up there for too long, for some reason the feeling makes me woozy, idk why
Me too! I used to be able to insert and remove my nuvaring and that's the extent of how long I can stand the sensation. Like you said I feel woozy, squeamish almost. I'm not even young or inexperienced but I can't do it.
You will be fine anon. Its easier the second time around because you are used to having something inside you and you don't cramp like mad.
The removal does not hurt at all but is a bit uncomfortable - kinda like pulling a hair? Idk how to describe it.

Anyone else feels extremely uncomfortable and fearful with anything having to do with vags or even breasts?
I think i mitht be broken, i avoid gynecologists like the plague and even talking about anything vagina related makes me sweat and get anxious. In fact i cried reading this damn thread (don't know why i did it).
It's not like i've been raped, only groped by some men i trusted, but still any reminder of woman body parts like breasts or uterus makes me anxious and pregnancy talk makes me want to die. I'm not trans either, i have no desire to live or look like a man.
Idk, it feels like one but can someone have a phobia torwards genitals?
>Girl, that's bad enough
Thank you, but it feels like i'm overreacting though. If girls who were raped can still live normally i shouldn't be like this.
Thank you for the worry but i can't, i even have some yeast or bacterial vaginosis going on but i can't go. Maybe if it was just the doc looking but a smear is impossible. I would rather get sick even knowing the consequences (family member had cancer).
anon, I posted earlier in this thread how I never looked at my vagine before til recently, it's because of the same reasons you are dealing with. It fucking sucks and hard to say why this is a thing for us, but like other anon said the groping is enough to be super upsetting. So it could be that, but for me personally i think its cus lack of sex ed/society doesnt care for women to feel good/having to see how we are objectified 24/7. (And i was groped once too by a friend but just the thigh, still makes you hyper aware of your own body and how it is taken sexually). Imo that alone is enough to fuck us all up so this may not be so unusual.
It may be that slow exposure to the female body (mainly your own) could help. Thats basically what i am doing. Trying to learn more slowly, observe/touch, and yes i did cry too when i looked at pics and diagrams of vaginas. Really want to hug you tbh cus it is a strange experience. But i have faith we can both overcome, and go from disturbed -> testing waters -> tolerating -> loving/appreciating our body parts. But then maybe theres other options like therapy? Honestly what you said about getting groped by men you trusted is enough to have some trauma imo. Best of luck<3
sorry samefag as >>150354
but also have you noticed how society treats women like a "secondary" sex? Like men = neutral, baseline then women = that plus boobs uterus women parts. Or I guess you could say a similar thing about being a kid, then growing up to notice secondary sex characteristics which feel out of place. Could this approach have something to do with your feelings? Apologies for all this theorizing but its important to see that breasts vagina uterus etc are not disgusting, it's part of being an adult woman.
Thanks anon. I'm sorry you feel this way too, it's really awful since we constantly need to deal with it, there is no break or anything, i hope you can move past it someday. Yeah maybe therapy would help in the future, i don't know if many therapists are equiped to deal with this though lol
I can look at mine (others freak me out), but touching or any feeling is weird.
We are treated as not default yeah. Another thing for me at least is that i find it digusting that i have certain body parts to attract a male and have kids and i absolutely DO NOT want that but i need to be constantly reminded of it since like 11. I hate that my body is designed for mens pleasure and for childbirth when i don't want to and that i suffer so much from it to be honest. Being a woman sucks and doctors don't help when they refuse things like letting me get my tubes tied.>>150367
Thanks for the kind words. That might be it, i'm the same way, but even small tampons are too much. I can't even stand touching myself there directly too much, it freaks me out.
Honestly, my experience with doctors has not been like that, mine years ago were very dismissive and impatient like they didn't want to deal wirh a difficult patient so i never even let them see much less touch. But even if they're sweet i won't be able to, i really don't know what my state would be after and i'm already mid key suicidal.
I am so so sorry you're suffering because of this bullshit lie men create for us. Your body is only so much for men's pleasure as theirs is for ours, but that's meaningless. It really is true that sexual harassment is about domination and control. When men walk behind a woman and make demeaning comments about her ass (my friend's experience), or grope you, it can leave a strong sense of embarassment and shame. But that's their true intention, to override women's boundaries and get pleasure from the humiliation. It's ingrained into us that our bodies are the reason they do this, that they can't help it if they see an attractive woman with sexy features!! That we're baby makers or sex dolls. But you have to realize, and replace that internalization- I think you've internalized that message and so did I and others. But your body is NOT men's, it's not those features' fault for existing that all these expectations and actions take place toward them. Expectations and behaviors are external, they are men's and society's, but your body is there to serve you first and foremost. Sorry if I'm getting preachy I just am so sorry you have to face this bullshit that's not even fair or true. I hope you can come to appreciate your body because it exists for you, and its functions should be your choice. If someone asserts that you have to have babies or that your parts are for their pleasure, that's men's perversion. It doesnt have to be your reality.

Idk if this is the right thread, but do you guys know how to deal with this? It's so ugly but I'm also too brainwashed to let my hair grow.
The only way is laser hair removal. You can use chemical exfoliants but it’s up to you whether you want them that close to your vaginal opening. >>150640
Some womens pubes are just too coarse, doesn’t make much of a difference with epilating and waxing.
i wanna pull those out with a tweezer, so satisfying
but yeah exfoliating before and after shaving (with a more gentle exfoliator since you're using it twice) might work
Tea tree oil diluted with jojoba oil after shaving works great for me, and I have very coarse pubic hairs. Not shaving is what's really worked best in regards to having a healthy bikini area, though.
The tea tree oil has mild antiseptic properties and the jojoba oil mimics natural sebum without actually feeding/growing bacteria like sebum would. The jojoba also moisturizes the skin and hair. Just be sure not to apply any tea tree oil too close to your labia.
was totally right. The measuring hurt more than the insertion itself. I barely even felt the insertion. The cramps aren’t as bad as last time either. Really happy about how it went down.
I used to really want it. When I planned tattoos that went down that low I had to choose whether to get laser done first or go ahead with the tattoos which would make laser impossible. I decided to just go ahead and get the tattoos, mainly because saving up for laser was alot.
I'm glad I didn't rush to do it. My feelings about body hair have changed alot since then.

This is SO embarrassing but I've been worried and insecure about my clit for my entire life. It's way too big and it looks so weird. Even as a kid before I even had any form of sex education I knew something down there was different, and at one point I thought I actually had a penis (lol). As an adult it's still huge and very noticeable and sticks out through my underwear. The hood is really big too, the same size as my labia if not bigger.
It's made me terrified of relationships because I'm afraid my partner would react badly or think I have a disease.
Could I be intersex, or at least have weird testosterone levels? Asking that specifically because I also have a lot of body hair but I definitely don't have PCOS, like I have a trail of hair that goes from my crotch up to the bottom of my ribs. I'm really worried there's something wrong.
afaik, clits just vary in sizes and there's nothing weird about big clit or big hood. Doesn't it mean there's more pleasure-space exposed? Mine is tiny and very hidden and sometimes so fucking elusive I can't stimulate it when having sex. So there's a brightside to everything, anon. >>151463>>151564
not needing or liking masturbation is completely normal, BUT having feelings like fear or disgust tied to it is not. You should work through it and analize why and when those feelings appeared. Maybe you felt pressured (you said you only did it because of your bf?) and it's some kind of trauma now. If it bothers you, think about consulting a sexuologist. It can be really healing to talk about it with someone competent.
A bigger clit is generally caused by exposure to testosterone in the womb or just a higher than average testosterone levels
I have a big-ish clit after going through a gender phase and taking testosterone, men don't freak out over it. If anything it just makes it ten times easier for them to get you off. It's a body part made for pleasure so having one that protrudes a little.. comes with its benefits.
I don't think so? Have you looked at yourself in the mirror and tried to find it?
It could be that you are just not sensitive in the tip, i'm the same way. And this method of masturbation can make you kind of numb because you will need a lot of pressure to get off.
Don't let stupid boys make you feel insecure, I'm sure if you told him his dick was smaller than all your exes he wouldn't like that either, but it's not like you would say something negative about something someone is born with and can't change because… Why would anyone do that?
It's not your fault, he's just trying to blame you because he's bad at what he's doing without trying to learn how to do it right. You deserve kindness sensitivity and respect in intimate situations, not someone who makes you dread it.
I'm sorry but who in their right mind thinks it's ok after you've just had sex with your partner for the first time to then compare their genitals to the genitals of all your exes!!?… what the hell is wrong with this man?
Clits are small, even as a lesbian I need to get to know what works for each new partner that I have, it's not an anatomy issue, different strokes work for different women and it can just take a bit of communication to learn what works. You don't give up on the idea of them ever coming after one or two sessions. I'm way more concerned about the way he's talking to you (when you've only just started being intimate) and I'm less inclined to think you have some anomaly going on with your genitals. He sounds like a selfish lover if he's so quick to say this > he was unsure he could get me off with it being so small
I'm going to say this is a red flag for him being a selfish lover and someone who is quick to misplace blame onto you, it reads as >I'm probably not going to get you off, I've given up already, but that's your fault
Isn't that just too convenient.
Late reply but, I used a dildo before ever having sex. The first 5 or 6 times using the toy I still bled. It wasn't alot and it wasn't bright red either. It was pink (blood mixed with my own natural lube I guess) I wasn't expecting to bleed beyond the first time but everyones hymen stretches a little differently and mine was a tough one. I had pain for the first few sessions too but I liked that I had both control over it and privacy in that moment? It's not something I would've wanted to share with a partner.
Totally up to you whether you want to stretch it by yourself or wait.
Follow the advice other girls gave you, but also let me tell you from personal experience there was no blood for me when I broke my hymen, all me and my bf at the time noticed were tiny bits of skin. You know that type of skin where you bite the inside of your mouth and a piece of skin falls out? If you ever took it out of your mouth to see what it looks like - that's what a broken hymen looked like for me kek
So once you break your hymen yourself it might not be that big of a deal after all.
