A few months ago I had sex with my friend. He wanted to cum inside me and because I'm on the pill I let him. Days after us having sex my vagina started to itch. (It'll start to itch for maybe a few and then go away. I've been washing with baking soda to keep it from itching). I've had sex with him before but I had never let him cum inside me. This was the first time and since then I haven't been having sex. I'm too scared to tell my mom because she doesn't know I'm sexually active. What should I do?

Hey, I had chlamydia & got treatment but I have noticed that I have bumps close to my anus still why ?

Posted by Optional on 07/05/2017 at 02:43

Im 15, and i shave every now and then. But since the last time i began having small itches soon after, then days went by and the itching became unbareable. At first it was nowhere near my entrance, but everywhere around, leading back to my anus. Down there would always be moist even when i made sure to wipe properly and something would always be reeling off when i scratch, even in the tip of the clitoris. Then the areas that itch became white as if dry. Then a week later around the entrance would burn alot when touched and especially when i pee, and i mean alot, and it bagan to itch too unbearably and it would become red and really swollen and i would do anything to avoid going to the bathroom to pee. This has been going in for a month now and a few days ago i saw watery white excretions... And im scared, sometimes its uncomfortable to walk and i havent told anyone because its embarrassing.. Will it go away?

Hi i just got treated for a consistant yeast infection.suddenly i'm discharging a lot more than usual and when it dries up its a yellowish colour. at times I'm itchy but only after i've shaved. The discharge is not thick neither is it light its inbetween (almost creamy), and there is no smell either nd it tastes kinda sour but like how not too ripe strawberries taste like.

I've been experiencing extremely itchy vaginal area. it isn't inside my vagina but is around the area of my labia majora/minora and my area between my anus and vagina. I get cuts on my area from anus to vagina and become very sore. I also get cuts and raw skin of my labia areas and become that uncomfortable I can't sleep. I had this on and off for about a year. it usually lasts 1-2 weeks and then goes for a month and comes back. I have had sex once, protected and lost my virginity. (in May 2015) and I don't know if that could of triggered anything, even though I had this a little while before. I'm scared to talk to my doctor as it may be an STI or something and my mum doesn't know I've had sex, I'm so scared please can someone help!!! I've tried creams and cotton knickers but nothing is helping.

I made out with this guy back in July (unprotected) and we kissed but no oral sex was involved and 2 days later i noticed these bumps on the back of my tongue.So i went to OB and got a mouth swab done and that was negative and my pap smear was normal. But about a month ago my vagina started getting sore and it just feel pricky and feels like someone pinching me and also the bumps are still on my tongue and i have a burning sensation around my mouth also. I don't have any blisters around my mouth or on my genital area. So what else could this be because it's driving me insane. I have went to my OB 3 times since July and everything was normal... HELP

Im really terrified, last week mondat I participated in sexual activity that wasnt protected, me and my partner have been together for a year and a half and we've nevrr had any issues before. He accidently ejaculated inside and I took the morning after pill an hour later. That day I was really soar because I wasnt lubricated enough which I think may have ripped my skin around my vagina, I didnt look at it cause that pain was usual for me so I left it thinking that It would heal after a day or so, but it was really painful and I was having difficulty to use the toilet and sit down etc. The area would burn when in contact with urine. I observed myself in a mirror and realised I had some sort of blisters or spots in my vagina near my duct and around it and like one or two around my anus and im confused to what it might be? Did I catch an infection, im soar and can't sit down or walk properly, please help me?

There's a weird odor that comes from my anus whenever I get erect and my butt crack gets really wet. Also there are spots above my pubic hair. They've been there for a few years and the area right around them is harder than the other side.

My wife a brisk fit 37 year old white women started having to get up to pee more and more often.After nearly two months its to the point of her up no less than 15 times to relieve herself. To add insult to her already less than comfortable citation. Her urine is a dark very swampy discusting fluid.Even after being flushed the smell lingers at least ten min, in our bathroom. I am sure that there's something wrong. She seems to only be bothered by losing sleep. Now these symptoms are only obvious at night after we lay down for the night. She has no unusual discharge or discomfort. Please someone help me figure out what this is!!

Hey, I have been with my boyfriend 5 months however at the 4 months point we went on a break where I slept with someone else unprotected. My boyfriend and I are back together and he knows about this; however yesterday I went to get an STI test as I was itchy and found that it burnt when I went to urinate. They found out that I don't have thrush but a water infection and so I was given antibiotics. However my boyfriend mentioned today that he was itchy and it burnt him to urinate... Could I have given him the water infection or do you think it's an STI? Thank you

I have red itchy patches on the skin under my pubes and I am a boy.I have never had any type of sex

Posted by Itchy woman on 28/12/2012 at 02:10

I have had an itch for more than a year in the vulvar area. I have seen my regular doctoe, dermatologist and gynecologist each recommending different creams including steroids. The steroids is the only treatment which helps but I was advised that I cannot use it for a long period since it thins the skin. Moisturisers and anti-itch helps for short periods but does not control the area or of the itch. It itch so much that I am forces to scratch and the skin sometimes breaks. Wondering if I should consult an oncologist. Please help.

Hi, I have a problem. It hurts between my genital area and anus out on the inner buttocks which makes it hurt alot when I walk or sit there's also a smell that I haven't felt before. There are lumps on the skin right on each side of My vulva...and more lumps further back and my skin is really red, irritated and sore. I had a brazilian wax done about 3-4 weeks ago, could this be ingrown hair that's going on? Me and my boyfriend had sex without condom over a week ago and two days after I got my period and towards the end of my period is when these symptoms started.. I heard it's easy to contract a yeast infection if u have wounds from sex and then if you have your period it's easier to get an infection, or could it be something else? Please I'm desperate... I'm in USA right now and I can't afford to see a gynecologist..please is there someone else who has experienced this? :(

But now my vagina feels really itchy on the outside and everytime I get up, sit down and walk my vagina feels like something's poking me just right on the tip of my vagina hole, it really hurts. I always think something is stuck in there like a tooth pick or something but when I go to check nothing's there. My discharge looks thick and smells awful -.- and when I go too pee it's stings cos maybe there's a scratch or something. I don't know what to do please help.

Then now that I finished me and my husband had intercourse and he says it burns that its like if I had something metal inside of me or something hard that scratches the head every time it goes in and out and we tried a second time and its sprouted with little pimples all over his head what could it be

Posted by claymcgoo on 16/04/2012 at 05:50

i recently discovered a large amount of what looks to be either pimples or sores in my pubic area, nothing on my actual genitals themselves but i am kind of confused as to what they are for they appear to be aweful looking but dont bother or discomfort me any, please help me find out what form of infection this is, i think bacterial but im unsure.

Posted by nurse and mom on 31/03/2012 at 02:09

Bella : You need to see your doctor, this could be an allergic reaction to your pads as the previous nurse said. However, since you are being treated for non Hodgkin's lymphoma you need to call your doc for anything weird. It could be a yeast infection also, but with your current situation over the counter medicine may not be enough and probably wont be if your immune system is weak. Take care of yourself and go see your doctor.

I've recently been having immense itchiness on my vagina and especially around the lips i also have something that looks like diaper rash and its very itchy and a bit patchy. It's red, but i have no bumps or whatever. I've never had sexual intercourse b4 so i know it not and STD and a few months back I was having the same thing but it wasn't as bad. I went to the doctor to see if i had a yeast infection and the results came back negative, but does that mean i could have it now?

Posted by Kimberly on 20/01/2012 at 09:36

Ok kids number one, NEVER EVER have unprotected sex. NEVER EVER have unprotected anal sex. Just the bacteria alone will give anyone male or female an infection. We are talking waste products which will give you a serious infection even if cleaned right away. ALWAYS use a CONDOM. Number 2 go see a doctor with or without your parents. You should be able to go to planned parenthood if you are too embarrassed but it is better to tell your parents if you have a problem than to let some diseases get into later stages as some can kill you like syphillis, etc. If all else fails go to an emergency room or urgent care. Often if you are experiencing a foul discharge from the vagina it is most likely an yeast infection and you can go get some antibiotics to put in it at the drug store. It is called Monostat or Miconazole Nitrate. If you have bubbles or sores of any kind do go see a doctor to make sure it is not herpes simplex or a cyst. If you have a discharge from the penis you MUST go see a doctor to get some anitibiotics. GO NOW OR GO RIGHT AWAY. DO NOT WAIT. If you have a rash around the groin, buttocks and other area it is probably again a yeast infection so use some Lotrimin Spray for at least 2-4 weeks because Candida Yeastis is hard to kill. If you do not treat it (athletes foot it will keep spreading). Tell your parent so they will get you some medicine as it is fairly easy to treat and can be just from active sports and sweating, etc. It can also be from having sex with someone who has it. It is just an imbalance of the bacteria on your skin. You can also use plain yogurt in the vagina lips and on the skin to help restore the Lactobacilli (the other bacteria) and relieve the itching. You should NEVER EVER let a STD or serious problem go UNCHECKED or it can get much worse and make you very ill. Get it checked right away at Planned Parenthood. Tell your parent, trust me they will take you and get you treated. Do not be embarrassed. We all have problems down there from time to time. Bella you are probably having an allergic reaction to your pads, I have similar problems and can get irritated beyond imagination from menstrual pads. Use a warm washrag instead of picking. If you haven't gotten your period DO GO GET A PREGNANCY test from walmart, they are cheap and acurate. If you are pregnant please do the right thing and get help from your parent right away. Especially if someone molested or raped you, report it right away. Johnson go back to the doctor and you need to get more antibiotics before it gets worse. It sounds like you are still infected. You have to take every last antibiotic you get or you create a new stronger infection. When you only take 2/3 of your antibiotics you are not killing all the stronger bacteria and then they get out of control even worse. TAKE ALL ANTIBIOTICS PERSCRIBED. Sarah you may have a cyst, get in right away and find out what is going on. Do not wait. It could be cancerous. Amanda it could be zits or blackheads, it is not uncommon to get acne in your privates or ingrown hairs which can be treated easily. But do get checked in case it is something worse. Optional, check the above paragraph about Monistat and get some vinegar douches and use them once a month. Use plain yogurt in the lips/anus area to relieve itching. If that doesn't get rid of it go back to the doctor. Optional use pure cranberry juice to help make urine burning go away. If there is a urinary tract infection it will help make the bacteria fall out. You must get some antibiotics for the UTI(urinary tract infection) which is very very common in all people. Drink lots of cranberry juice, take cranberry tablets and drink water like crazy for a week. Optional you both have a yeast infection. You can get Monistat, he needs to get antibiotics and you can as well. Optional your penis and innards are hurting because you probably have a UTI. Get some antibiotics and drink lots of cranberry juice. Optional the bumps may be a herpes simplex infection or even a yeast infection you need to go to the doctor asap. Anytime you are bleeding from anywhere and do not see a scratch or are not on your period, do go see a doctor. If you are a girl see an OB/GYN and if you are a boy see a Urologist or general practitioner. tsoo it sounds like a yeast infection, follow the above directions, use some monistat internally and some lotrimin cream and yogurt externally and see your doctor for antibiotics if you can. ITCHING, DISCHARGE, SMELL, BUMPS, RED PATCHES, CIRCULAR PATCHES, BURNING are all signs of common yeast infection but can be other diseases. See your doctor no matter what. Don't be embarrassed it will return many times over a lifetime and we all get it. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE SEX TO GET A YEAST INFECTION. IT IS A FUNGAL SKIN INFECTION AND IS NOT ALWAYS RELATED TO SEX. Dave it is possible you have gotten a venereal wart. You can get them burned off by a good doctor. Your wife and you may have HPV a common genital wart you can get them removed but your wife and you must get checked. She is at risk for cancer if she does not know about it. GOT A LUMP OR BUMP, IF IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE A ZIT OR BLACKHEAD, AND DOES NOT GO AWAY IN A WEEK, GO SEE THE DOCTOR. IT COULD BE HERPES, IT COULD BE A CYST OR IT COULD BE A GENITAL WART WHICH NEEDS TO BE TREATED BEFORE IT GETS CANCEROUS. DO NOT IGNORE IT. That's all folks. I used to be in nursing and I am a mom of 4 and have been through most of this stuff before in my own life. Hope some of this stuff helped. My kids come to me when they get issues and we take care of them, no need to be scared. Brave up and tell your parents.

About a week ago I noticed that i had a weird mucusy discharge it smells...normal. sometimes it dries and sticks and it is impossible to get off,literally.When I try to peel it off my skin comes off with it and then I am bloody.For about two days my vagina was swollen and red.It hurts to walk sit or wipe.I noticed this at the end of my peroid.It was worse then because I had to wear a pad.Today,I have noticed that it still hurts,is still red,and I am still having the mucus problem.The funny thing is(well actually not that funny.)that this is all on my lips.A new thing that I have noticed is that i have both of my lips covered with little red,like bubbles.The bubbles are only on the tips of my lips.My outer anus is a little sore, and whenever I have a bowl movement I bleed a little.Two other problems that I am currently concerned about are I have a bowl movement every two or three days and My eyes are red and I have a little more sleep in my eyes than usual.People think it's pinkeye but I don't think so because my eyes do not itch,water,burn,or have any discharge.(Besides extra sleep?)So only one(Maybe two symptoms.)I also noticed the redness does not stay,it is there only like,every other day or at certain times of the day.Also some times my lips feel unusually hard?My left lip is alot longer than my right one although this is normal for me.None of this should be up.Last summer I had a autologus bone marrow transplant for my reoccurance of non hodgkins lymphoma,and so now I take Acyclovir and Bactrum.(antiviral and antibactirial medicene though not sure which is which I just take 'em ;) ) since I am taking these shouldn't there be nothing wrong(?)and yet there is alot wrong.(?):/ Could any of this possibly be linked together?I am afraid that if I keep peeling off the mucus I am going to make an open sore or something and get an infection.(Great.)I am fifteen and I am a vigin,so that ones out of option.Sorry waaay Tmi.Just figured it might help the diagnosis.?Sorry.

The other day I noticed something above my clitoris really hurt. I looked and one side of the clitoris shaft was a lot bigger than the other. I felt it and it hurt and it feels like there's something inside of it like a little ball or something. I've never had sex or anything. I don't know what's it is or what happened!

I had unprotected sex two weeks ago. A week later I noticed two whitish bumps near back of vagina but not sure if they were there before and when I looked it up the websites seemed to say it was probably fatty tissue. Today I had a bit of discomfort and checked again and noticed one tiny black Mark, not painful or raised and I think there are some slightly raised bumps, same colour as rest of vagina, again not painful at all. I am on holidays for the next week and then will organise to be checked at home but what foes it sound like? Totally freaking out and stressed so any advice or information appreciated.

Im 19 and I had a yeast infection like 3dys ago. My vagina was itchy and sore irritated as well.. During this time me and my boyfriend had sex..while we had sex my vagina was sore and my bf said it was tighter than normal.Two days later me and my bf, where going to have sex at my house but we decided not because, my vagina was extremely sore, so me and him decided to wait and hold off until later on tht day until I went to his house..So 3 hrs later, I saw my bf and we were about to have intercourse but I just couldn't!!! When I pulled outttt his penis he had clumpy white thick stuff on his penis I knew this wasnt from me.. I thght maybe he had a yeast infection as well bc he did mention his penis itching znd being sore earlier tht day... So I was wondering does he really have a yeast infection or is he cheating on me???????????!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Optional on 01/06/2011 at 08:04

My problem started a few months ago. I experienced severe intense itching with no other symptoms just itching where the pantyline is. I thought it was due to a laundry soap change. It has progressed to intense itching on the surface of my vagina. the itching can last minutes, it is painful, to the touch. I end up tearing the skin and there is also this grayish color to it. when I scratch I see skin peeling, some bleeding and now the area is inflamed bumpy, there might be some blisters but I can't tell if it is, and the skin is tough. with severe itching and the peeling I can't even put water on it it stings the area. it's not an STD, no discharge or foul odor but I noticed I have to shower more often to keep fresh. my doctor saw me and chalked it up to a skin irritation caused by an allergy and gave me an anti itch cream to break the itch/scratch cycle. it is getting worse and I've used vagisil to no avail. I have a steroid cream to stop the itching but it doesn't help at all. I am hoping someone can help!!

Posted by Optional on 25/05/2011 at 07:45

I've been feeling like the tip of my penis is raw feeling or real sensitive irritated feeling . It sometime feels like my stomach is strained feeling . Or like a pain when you need to take a bowel movement . The head of my penis feels kind of sore .Kind of a strained feeling after you ejaculate. What could this be?

about 9 days ago, I had sex with my boyfriend since then had intense itching and burning in and around my vagina ... at this point it has developed into itching and a rash ... there are no leisions but it does itch and my labia looks more wrinkled, slightly swollen, the sides of my vagina, like my bikini area is full of rash like patches, red and it itches from time to time ..... i'm worried . i've only slep with my boyfriend and he doesn't have any rash or anything ...i had period after 2 days which made the condition i had to wear sanitary napkin...and it irritated my skin furthermore...i used neosporin ointment thinking it might help..but i reckon the condition has gone peri area looks terrible as if it gt burnt by hot water,...

i currently have had multiple sex partners but all except one used condoms(there were only 3) im not sure but i started to freak out thinking i had chlamydia but i realy think its all in my head. im going to the doctor for my yearly check up soon so im trying to wait till then to get checked but i feel i need to go now. my symptoms are normal really but idk if that is so true anymore. my abdomen hurts like it said it would but its not painful it just feels like an ache but when i go to sit down it hurts my butox im not sure if this has anything to do with it but when i sit down i get this aching feeling in my colon almost an then it shoots to my abdomen area, my discharge is mucusy an slimy like egg whites but its cloudy and yellowish sort of neither of my sex partners have said anything to me about anything i still talk to them so im guessing they dont have any problems but i still am worried. please give me some advie

Hi, today I just noticed some blood bleeding in couple of drops from the scrotum sac of my left side testicles. There was no any apparent reasons like hitting, scratching, cutting or itching. Even there was no pain. Could you please explain what was wrong? Do I need to consult a Doctor, if yes to which Doctor I have to consult?

I'm really worried and I don't know what to do and I'm scared to go to a doctor, help please! x

my husband always says I have a similar smell in the vagina with the fish. Two medical gynecologists have collected samples for laboratory examination of the vagina, and after they told me that I have no infection, which always'm fine, my cervix seems to a teenager, is perfect, great, etc., the survey indicated only a mild inflammatory reaction which is characteristic of menopause. I'm 59, my food is regulated, not nearly as meat, my diet is well balanced. I do hormone replacement with tibolone (2.5 mg), I always cleans well, my husband and I have to fight, because he insisted that the smell is coming from me, do not know what else to do. Could you kindly doctor (doctor) tell me what I can do to eliminate once that smell? I do not know what else to do. Marilia valentim
