Thanks for the advice... Do you have any idea what it might be....C my partner is in the military and I trust him and all but do you think he could have cheated on me and transferred some kind of infection to me.... He is the only guy I have been with... This recently started after we had intercourse when he came home for the holidays... Could it be an STD? I'm just freaking out a little bit here and I really wanna know what to expect when I go to my OBGYN...
if your partner is larger then you do need to make sure you use a proper amount of lubrication and than your activity isn't hurting you too badly, it should still be decently comfortable. also make sure you clean yourself after sexual activity and it also help prevents infection if you go pee after sex. i would still go to the doctor and get checked out because it does sound like you may have an infection and might need antibiotics.See more answers here
Q: So I have been sexually active for 7 yrs and have never had any problems down below... Until recently. I had sex one-day and realized it kind of burned when we finished, I thought maybe we got to rough. I.checked my self the next day cuz I was hurting. I noticed the inside of my vagina was slightly red and irritated but it went away. Then we had intercourse again and the pain.came.back. same spot. It turned into what looks like to me as a.canker sore. 2 days is been this way and I noticed 2 more sores inside my vagina. It really hurts to Pee and walk, sit run. I'm so scared as to what this means or is. Anyone.can shed some light to me would be greatly appreciated. P.s. the guys I've been with have come back with clean medical check ups.
Q: This is an embarrassing question to say the least, but it is concerning me. I really would prefer a medical professional answer this because I'm trying to get to the bottom of what this is. I am a 18 year old female that has 2 lumps INSIDE my vagina at the opening, one on each side at at the bottom. They have been there for years, every since I was a young teenager (13, 14 years old mabye younger). They cause no symptoms and I don't feel anything at all. They are about the size of a pea, or slightly smaller, and it looks like the same color and muscle type as my vaginal wall. I am concerned because it blocks almost my entire vaginal opening, and inserting anything in there is near impossible. I'm not sexually active and have never been, but I can imagine that sex would be near impossible. I had a yeast infection several months ago and tried to insert a moinistat applicator -- talk about pain! It wouldn't go in, and I had to literally "find" my actual vaginal canal by trying to move the lumps out the way. It scared me because for a moment I was beginning to believe I didn't have a vaginal canal. It isn't an STD or anything of that sort, like I said I've never had sex at all and it's been there since I was a child. What could this be?
Q: I just read a bunch of horror stories on here from other people concerning the use of Monistat 1. I'm really glad I came to do a little bit more research before using this product because I will not be using it now after what I have read. This is the 3rd yeast infection I've had in my life. I'm 23. The first time I had one was probably about 2 years ago and the last 2 I've gotten back to back within the last month and a half. I'm with a new sexual partner right now which I'm sure is the cause of this infection. The only times I've had yeast infections was after having sex... either having too much sex, the use of a new kind of a condom during sex, or a new partner. I know exactly what a YI feels like.. I was diagnosed once, and I know that's what this is. Thick white discharge, and itchy, burning sensation around the vaginal opening. There's no odor or anything. It's really uncomfortable though... and since I'm with a new man right now, we're both very much wanting to be sexually active with each other. This infection is putting a real damper on that. What I would like to know, is if there are any ways I can get rid of this without using something I have to insert into my vagina. (that really frightens me) & also something that will clear it up quickly. Does anyone know of any natural remedies that they've tried and have worked? I've read something about eating yogurt.. which I may try.. anything else? Or maybe an oral medication with few side effects? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Q: I know this will sound strange but it hurts when i have sex with my husband. And some times he says he can feel something there and it blocks him from entering me. I had a complete hysterectomy . so not sure why it is doing that for? Even at times when he gets somewhat rough i can feel pain going up my spine, even when he said something is blocking him i can feel like something is there. . It is hard to explain but it feels like something is there at times. . I even had kidney stones removed so i thought at first that could be the problem .but had them removed last month and first when we had sex it was fine then again last time we had sex it did the same thing where he can not get it inside.. Would go to Drs about it but having big issues with the insurance go figure.
A: What you describe could be a vaginal vault prolapse. This happens sometimes after hysterectomy and means that the top of the vagina is collapsing downward. Depending on what part of the vagina is collapsing, it can take the bladder and urethra; rectum; or a loop of small or large intestine with it. Please do whatever you can to get in with your gynecologist, and tell your husband he has to stop if he meets with an obstruction. And no more rough stuff! IF that's what's happening, it can be surgically repaired.
A: Thank you for reply I will do my best to see a doctor as soon as i can get the insurance to help pay for all the other doctors i seen. I never thought about the vault prolapse before. Untill you told me i read all about it and it does all sound familiar on what i am going through. again thank you both for replying and for your thoughts on what can be the problem..
Q: i have deep cuts on the area bellow my vagina from rough sex. hoping they would heal i waited a day to see what happens. i began to get excessive vaginal discharge, a little leaning on the orange colour, and one red bump formed on the right lower labia. then as the days past(3), i now have around ten or more bumps that look like canker sores on my vagina. it is very difficult to sit and walk...sometimes sleep because of the extreme pain! could it be a vaginal rip that went wrong- got infected and the surrounding skin got irritated? or is there no other conclusion but an sti or std. please im young and im so scared right now. im getting a appointment with a gyno soon, but im afraid of what we'll conclude to
A: glad you have a dr appointment, go get it diagnosed and treated. and why are you having rough sex anyway so young? as a mommy type it worries me. stay away from those boys and keep yourself for a man that wants to marry, love and protect you sweetie. you are a beautiful and delicate flower.
Q: I've recently started having sex with a new partner. We usually have rough sex, and usually get dry pretty fast, however we still continue. Each time after I've had sex with him, my vaginal opening usually swells up the day after and is irritated and sore for a while. First time we had sex, I went to the doctor and he determined it was a yeast infection. After it cleared up, we had sex again and I went to my regular gyno and he didn't see anything abnormal. We had sex a few days ago, my vagina swelled up as usual and was a little irritated. When it's swollen I never have any discharge leaking out however, I do have some white, tissue-like substance along the walls of my vagina (gross as it may seem, I investigate for myself to see if there is yeast/discharge in there). Could this be a reoccurring yeast infection from having dry sex? I usually only have irritation/itching the day after we have sex. After that the swelling decreases, I have no discharge, but there is still the white substance in my vagina. Is this a yeast infection or just an overgrowth of yeast due to rough, dry sex? Also, how can I keep this from happening. When I first started having sex this happened as well, but after a while it stopped happening. Thanks.
Q: I have recently noticed a strange flesh/growth hanging between my vagina and anus. It's painless, even when touched or pulled at and there has been no sign of bleeding, pus or unusual discharge or vaginal discharge coming from it. I'm not sexually active at all, so I have no idea what it is, or how I got it. It hangs down and it seems like it gets longer every year I've had it. It is getting quite long and I don't even know what to think it could be. Has anyone ever seen or had anything like this? What would you do? I have a terror of going to a gynecologist and I need to find out if this is something serious. Please don't just tell me to go to a gynecologist. I have a psychological disorder that makes it impossible for me to go to gynecologist.
A: Oh my goodness. Me too. Me to me to me to. Atleast this sounds about the same to me. Except, This just happened to me. It just like, appeared out of no where a few months ago. In fact, i noticed it right after my second gardasil shot. And i get my last one tuesday. I'm 18 and not active, and really just have no idea if this is normal or not. I'm so so scared. And terrified of getting a pap done.
Q: After a vaginal hysterectomy, can the walls of the vagina become rough and bumpy-like?
Q: Forgive me if this is a bit graphic but I want to make my problem as clear as possible so I can get the best advice. First, some background info: I am 21, been with the same person for 7 years. Been sexually active for 6 years, only had sex with one person. I have no children. I take Sprintec birth control pills. A couple days ago I masturbated several times in one day. I was maybe stimulating my g-spot too roughly. Then my husband came home and fingered me a bit. It felt good but he accidentally did it too roughly for a moment and I felt a sharp pain. Then he stopped and watched me masturbate. The inside of my vagina started to feel sore. I noticed a little blood on my fingers so we stopped. We haven't done anything sexual since then. The next day there was a little bit of blood in my underwear. I never spot between periods. After that day, there was no more blood. However, my vagina felt sore and itchy. I will start my period in a few days. Right now my vulva is swollen, itchy, and sore. The inside of my vagina is swollen and sore as well. When I gently insert my finger, I can feel that the inside is very swollen. I can barely fit the tip of my finger inside. I am small down there, so I normally can't fit my finger inside if I'm not aroused. However, right now it is especially difficult. The small bumpy part inside that swells up when I'm aroused (which I've identified as being my g-spot) is very swollen, even though I'm not aroused. There is no change in my vaginal odor. There was a little white discharge yesterday. Today my discharge is the usual color, odor, and amount. I am not sure what is wrong. Is the swelling, itching, and pain just part of the healing process, since I must a gotten a small tear on the inside of my vagina? Or is it likely that I have a yeast infection or something like that? Could a vaginal injury lead to a yeast infection? What should I do?
A: If the itch continue then its probably yeast infection and you need to see a Dr so she can give you antibiotics.
Q: I noticed that about 7 months after having my baby and since I started menstrating again I have vaginal odor that is somewhat "sour" smelling daily. At first I attributed it to the fact that I hadn't menstrated in a year and half however it has been several months since my first menstration post baby and I am still noticing it. There is no itching or burning or more discharge than normal and I have had the same partner for 10 years. My questions are: should I be concerned or is this just another one of those changes post baby? And are there any natural home remedies to try? I try to avoid prescriptions as often as possible however I need to clear up this embarrassing odor. Thanks to anyone who responds.
A: Hello, Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of abnormal vaginal odor and discharge. It is caused by a change in the type of bacteria found in the vagina. The exact cause for the change in type of bacteria is still not known, but it is can be due to IUDâ€™s,multiple sex partners or having intercourse with a new partner. In addition to unpleasant "fishy" vaginal odor, thin white or yellowish discharge from vagina may also be present. Diagnosis can be confirmed after pelvic examination and microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge. Treatment is by metronidazole((Flagyl, MetroGel) and clindamycin (Cleocin).They are available as pills or vaginal gels or creams. Please do not use any vaginal douches. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
