What Causes Bumps On Your Vigina

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Could a prolonged yeast infection cause tiny bumps on the vigina lips?

    • ANSWER:
      May be, it could. But it is not necessarily a sign of a more serious problem either, such as herpes. It could be something as simple as an allergic reaction to soap, bath oils, clothing, etc.

      But better to cure it with home remedies. Try yogurt.

  2. QUESTION:
    How can I get pimples off my vigina.?
    Can you also tell me the best products to use to shave it and how keep it smooth with no bumps or blemishes. And can nair get the hair off without hurting me. AND I HAVENT HAD SEX EVER SO I DONT HAVE A DISEASE..

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't want pimples and ingrown hairs on your genitals, THEN DON'T SHAVE THEM!!!

      Seriously, from a health standpoint, shaving your genitals is a really bad idea. The pimples are painful and unsightly AND it can make you more susceptible to STDs like herpes (whenever you choose to be sexually active, anyway). I used to say that waxing is an okay alternative, but the Brazilian waxes have been known to cause disifiguring skin infections. Bikini line is still okay, though.

      Nair is not good for your vulva. It's too harsh and will give you chemical burns on your crotch.

      So here are your choices: Trim carefully with scissors and get a regular bikini wax to keep things neat. Or accept the bumps and zits as a consequence of shaving.

      If you really want to, and you have the money, you can get it removed with a laser.

  3. QUESTION:
    sunday night me and my boyfriend used a durex preformax condom?
    the next day my vigina started itching but it wasnt itching that bad till tuesday where i notice i was getting little bumps on the out side of my vigina could this be the cause of the little bumps

    • ANSWER:
      if you havent used this type of condom before it could be an alergic reaction. The purpose of thos condoms is to prolong the affects of Orgasm for both partners so they have a coating of chemicals on them to do that.

      Take an Antihistamine with Loratadine in it. if the area is constantly itchy put Hydrocortizone on it - you can get these from any chemist - if you cant get the cream use Vaseline on the area - this may be uncomfortable though.

  4. QUESTION:
    I have a bump but not directly on my vigina but somewhere upper but it is in my private part but my boyfriend?
    doesn't have it.It don't irrate me and it dont cause me no fever but now its gone could it be herpes?

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with all answers listed above. But to make sure, go see your OBGYN.

  5. QUESTION:
    I have pimply lookign bumps on the edge of my vigina where the edge of underwear is...?
    what is it? how do i get rid of it?its not an std bc im only 14 and am not sexully active.

    • ANSWER:
      You probably do have a heat rash, razor burn, or irritation from the elastic causing friction. That area is very sensitive. Do not be ashamed to go to your mom, she has lots of experience i'm sure. I would avoid shaving for a bit, and wear loose cotton underwear, as well as loose fitting jeans, shorts, etc. Outerwear that is too tight can also cause irritation. For a few days I would try using baby products, such as Desitin ointment, and baby powder, similar to what is commonly used for delicate baby skin. If you do not see any improvement in a few days, then a quick check up with your Dr. would be best.

  6. QUESTION:
    Large red bump near vigina and anus?
    A couple days ago I noticed I had a large red bump near my anus and vigina. And ive had it for about 3 days and it hurts so bad i can barly walk or sit. About a week ago I had one on the upper part of my privite area . Sort of an inch or two from my clitirous. Please help!!

    • ANSWER:
      Could be a boil. I have had similar red bumps in that area as well and they turned out to be boils. Boils are infections in the hair follicles and can be very painful. DO NOT squeeze it as this could cause the infection to go deeper under the skin.

      If pus appears or if the boil ruptures put a warm cloth soaked with epson salts over it. Keep it clean and put Polysporin or antibiotic cream on it to aid in healing.

      If this is not what you think it is I would suggest seeing your doctor.

  7. QUESTION:
    what could this bump mean?
    i have a bump on my vigina for the past few days. i dont know what it is or if i should say something..or if its just something that will go away. im sort of worried, but i dont want to cause anybody else trouble because they already go through enough.

    • ANSWER:
      i would get it looked at just in case, if god forbid it is harmful, you would want it taken care of right away. and if you go and they tell you that its normal and you fine, i am sure u will feel much better.
      so doctor sounds like the best bet to me.
      good luck =)

  9. QUESTION:
    shaving bumps...on my vigina!? HELPPP!?
    Is it noemal to get shaving bumps on your vigina?
    How do you get rid of them?
    Is there another way to shave...i think nare smells really bad!

    • ANSWER:
      You can buy Nair for your bikini area. It is not good to shave down there because it causes ittration and you can get easily cut down there. The bumps will probably last for about 3 days until they dissapear. Also, you can wax down there, it is painful though. Nair and other companies make wax for down there. Also, I believe it is by Noxzema (I know they make things for acne, but also for shaving), the company also makes razors for your bikini area. They are built differenly to shave our kind of curves.

  11. QUESTION:
    Bump on Vagina, please help.?
    This is so embarrassing but as I was showering I noticed a hard bump inside my vigina, it's the part thats near your anus. Im sure it hasnt been here for long cause it's hard to miss. I'm a teen and I'm a virgin. I haven't shaved down there only trimmed with sisccoers a few days ago (2 days). I'm also on my period if that makes a difference.

    I'm kinda freaking out cause im unsure of what it is considering i havent had sex or anything like that. I tried taking a picture to see what it is but it seems to be either too small or inside the skin. It feels the side of a pencil eraser. It kinda feels like a pimple but i remember having a pimple on my bum nd it hurt, this doesnt.

    Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I have an axniety disorder so I'm very anxious and worried. I don't want to go to the doctors just yet because I've only seen it todaya nd it might just be a pimple. So, i think i should wait a bit and see what you guys think it might be.

    & what are the possiblites of this being cancer? That is my biggest fear.
    Yes, I do get constipated often, it runs in my family and i tend to get it alot when i feel anxious.

  13. QUESTION:
    I have a black sore inside my inner vigina. it also has like a bump behind it what could this be?

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you have a cyst or infection. You need to go to the doctor, they will probably prescribe some antibiotics. It's probably nothing serious, just go get it taken care of and stop suffering.
      -Sores on the female genitals
      Genital sores may be painful, itchy, produce a discharge, or cause no symptoms at all.

      Because genital lesions or sores can have a negative affect on a person's self-image, many people do not seek proper medical care. All genital sores should be evaluated by a medical professional.

      Itching, painful urination, or painful sexual intercourse often occur with genital lesions.
      -Causes
      Sores or lesions on the female genitals are often caused by sexually transmitted infections (STIs). STIs that can cause these sores include:

      Chancroid
      Genital herpes
      Granuloma inguinale
      Molluscum contagiosum
      Syphilis
      Genital warts
      Precancerous changes of the vulva (vulvar dysplasia) may appear as white, red, or brown patches on the vulva, and may cause itching. The vulva can also develop skin cancers such as melanoma and basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas.

      Nonsexually transmitted diseases may also produce sores on the genitals. In young girls (before puberty), common causes of genital sores include:

      Atopic dermatitis
      Contact dermatitis
      Nonspecific vulvovaginitis
      Less common causes include:

      Skin conditions such as lichen planus, lichen sclerosis, seborrheic dermatitis, and vitiligo
      Noncancerous (benign) cysts or abscesses of the Bartholin's or Skene's glands
      ---Avoid treating yourself before seeing a doctor. It can mask the symptoms and make it more difficult to diagnose the cause of the sore.

      A sitz bath may help relieve itching and crusting. Moist lesions can be dried using a heat lamp.

      If the sores are caused by a sexually transmitted infection, notify your sexual partner so that he or she can be treated. Stop all sexual activity until the sores are no longer infectious.

      Call your doctor if you:

      -Find any unexplained genital lesion
      -Have a change in a genital lesion
      -Have persistent genital itching that does not go away with home care
      -Think you might have a sexually transmitted infection
      -Also have pelvic pain, fever, vaginal bleeding, or other new symptoms

  14. QUESTION:
    34 weeks pregnant & bump down there ?
    The other day I noticed a bump at the very top of my vigina. It was itchy maybe a couple days before I realized it. It doesn't hurt unless I wipe when peeing. I can't really see down there cause my belly lollipop but I lookd at it in the mirror it looks like it has a white dot maybe I can't really see...this every happen too anyone?

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like a boil. This can be caused by an ingrown hair or a cut or scrape that became infected, among other reasons (see link). When you are pregnant, your immune system is weakened, so you are more susceptible to getting the boils because your body couldn't fight it off. That explains why you haven't seen one before now.

      It is normal, you can sit in a shallow bath of warm water for 10 minutes or so to relieve the pain and pressure you might be feeling. It will probably get worse before it gets better. These are somewhat common, and you should just mention it at your next doctor appointment, the doctor will probably want to take a look at it and they may prescribe an antibiotic.

  15. QUESTION:
    I HAVE A BUMP ON MY VAGINA AREA HELP !?
    i have this pimple looking thing on the outside of my vigina area between my legs this happend like 2 or 3 days ago and idunno what is it maybe its bite or something but unsure of it IDUNNO WHAT IT IS SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ( im still a virgin )

    idunno if this is a disease or not but im freaking out!

    ( FOR MY SISTER )!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Best thing to do is go to the doctor to get it checked out. Could be lots of things. Do you shave that area? If you do and don't replace razors frequently it could be caused by the bacteria on your razor. If it goes away in a few days you'll know it's probably that.

  16. QUESTION:
    i am very worried about my vigina?
    i felt something very strange inside of my Virgina...

    should nt their suppose to be a open canal between Virgina entrance and cervix/womb. when i put my finger inside it got blocked . it s like thr is no passage way to the rest of my organs.

    i am worried cause maybe thats why i dnt fall pregnant. sperm can t enter

    • ANSWER:
      Let's take a trip through the female reproductive system. I am assuming you are not a virgin if you're worried about not becoming pregnant. But the entrance to the vagina can be covered by what is called the hymen. This can break during tampon use or even exercise but breaks for most women during first sexual intercourse. if you are a not a virgin, this might be what you are talking about. Then the vagina itself. It's a tube that is only about 3 to 5 inches long. On the wall closest to the navel you will find a bump (this should not cover the vagina so this may not be what you are talking about either). This is the g-spot and during arousal is swells with blood. Then the vagina ends. 3 to 5 inches in, you find the cervix. This is a wall with a tiny hold in the middle. The hole is probably small enough that you may not be able to fit a finger in (this cervix is probably what you are hitting at the vagina is actually a lot smaller than most people thing and its size can change depending on the point in the menstrual cycle. Beyond this wall and this tiny hole is the uterus (womb) which connects to the fallopian tubes which connects to the ovaries.

      What you are probably encountering is simply the cervix and the hole in the cervix is rather small.

  17. QUESTION:
    GYN Question- STD (itch, smell, bumps)?
    Symptoms: A little itchy, bad smell (like ammonia), not unusual discharge, possible bumps?

    Details: Slept with a few guys the past few weeks/months. Used a condom for all but one guy... (I'm on the pill.)
    I also shave, so that may be the small razor bumps/itchy... That would all be normal, except the odd smell. It's pretty strong.

    • ANSWER:
      The bad smell might be bacterial viginosis(fishy odor smell) . This is caused by having many sex partners or using douche often because doche cleans out the good and bad bacteria. You can go to the doctor for that and they will give you pills. I guess it depends on where the bumps are. Inside the vigina would be genital warts. on the outside might be razors bumps.

      little white bumps is usually just sweat glands blocked up and nothing bad, look to see if the discharge is white, girls tend to have a little bit of white discharge anyways that can be a bit itchy, but if its a lot and its itchy as hell then it is thrush which is caused by too much yeast intake and you can get creams, peccary which you insert into your vagina, they dissolve and get rid of thrush, and there are pills. there is usually a GUM clinic in your local hospital which is free and confidential, they will check you for any STI's and STD's including other things, just look on google for you local hospital gum clinic or local gum clinic.

    help me please?
    I have bump like sores on my vigina and I have had cramps, back pain, cold chills, and chuncky discharge. I just am rally scared I have doctors appointment tommorow and I want to be prepared does anybody has any idea

    • ANSWER:
      Let your doctor be the one to determine what is causing your symptoms. I don't want to give a diagnoses because your symptoms could mean a number of things.

      You may have to have a pelvic examination; the doctor will insert a gloved finger into your vagina and palpate (press down) on your abdomen to see whether there are any masses to be felt.

      He may be able to express some of your discharge for a lab evaluation, this is to determine the cause of the dischage and whether the diagnosis matches your symptoms.

      If you have been sexually active (be honest with your doctor if you are or have been), he could also perform a Pap smear on you, he will insert a plastic or metal (sterilized) speculum into your vagina, spread it open, and take a culture of your cervix. This might be uncomfortable, but not painful. Just relax, and the nurse will hold our hand if you want her to. He does the Pap smear to detect cells for cervical cancer.

      Good luck.

    i have this little bump inter side of my thigh an dit bothers me it kinda itches. i went to the clinic to get tested for stds they sayd it doesnt sound like herpes because if it was i woulde have all over my vigina what coulde it be

    • ANSWER:
      I Agree with the ingrown hair, here are some effects:

      8 EFFECTS
      1. Constant tenderness
      2. Trapped, ingrown hairs cause inflammation which result in the body forming papule - a small, raised, abnormality on the skin commonly known as a bump giving rise to the term 'razor bumps'
      3. The body can also respond by producing a pustule - a blister on the skin containing pus
      4. An infected pustule can become ruptured resulting in bleeding
      5. Itching
      6. Tingling
      7. Pain - mild or severe
      8. Hard, prominent, irregular scar tissue in the skin in chronic cases

      Either go to another doctor and get it tested again or find out if this is just an ingrown hair. See if your effects match up.

      Hello, I found an article in regards to vaginal lumps/ cysts, what they can be and why. I hope this helps you. Take care.
      Vaginal cysts

      A vaginal cyst is a closed sac that is situated on or under the vaginal lining that contains fluid or semisolid material.

      There are many sorts of vaginal cysts which can vary in size (pea size to that of a tennis ball). Vaginal inclusion cysts are the more common. These might come as a result of damage sustained by the vaginal walls or following an obstetric or gynecologic process when the lining of the vagina will not better itself back to natural smoothness.

      Gartner's duct cysts happen in the room already occupied by the Gartner's duct, normally on the side walls of the vagina. This duct is lively during fetal growth but generally go away after birth. Not in every case but in some - sections of the duct can gather fluid and develop into a vaginal wall cyst later on in years.

      Vaginal cysts are likely to have women complain of soreness while having sex, or when inserting tampons.

      If a cyst exists it would be monitored through routine checkups for growth and other changes. Should the cyst play up and cause symptoms the option is there to have it removed, or in some cases not an option if the doctor feels it necessary. Removal is done by surgical excision.

      Cysts surgically removed do not normally come back As like with most treatments there are the risks to consider, and surgical excision being one of them.
      Bartholin gland cyst: What are Bartholin Glands? They are two glands sited at either side of the vaginal opening. Both produce fluids that lubricate the opening to the vagina. If one of the glands becomes blocked fluids can build up inside the gland causing a painless lump called a Bartholin cyst. The cysts as a rule do not need treating but in some cases surgery might be suggested to drain them.

      Another problem and a common one too, is the case of an infected hair shaft. Symptoms are a red tender lump which forms after skin bacteria caused by infection happens at the base of a hair shaft

      Vaginal sores, blisters, pimples, bumps or lumps do not always mean there is something seriously wrong; nevertheless it is best to have an odd finding or changes to your normal vaginal behaviours to have them checked out

  30. QUESTION:
    Weird Bump!!! Please HELP!!!!!!! (kinda gross)?
    Ok so yesterday i had an itch around my vigina area and there was a small bumb and i just thought it was from shaving, but im not sure.. Today i like noticed and the bump is bigger, and it freaked me out! I have no clue if it is from shaving or what!? It doesnt hurt very much.. But im a virgin so it aint any stds and i havent had oral sex or anything! So if you could have any idea what this is please help im kinda freakin out! Its bigger than a pimple..... Thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:
      Alright, leave the bump alone, usualy these are just skin iritation spots that come from various htings. 1. Sitting. 2. doing anything that creates sweat. 3. a bug bite 4. doing anything that causes friction. (sitting on an atv/motorcycle). Don't touch it dont squeeze it dont scratch it, this will only inflame the irritation. If it doesnt go away after 2 weeks of being left alone and continues to stay red, it is probably a mean pimple. This is normal too, skin gets infected. If this is STILL not the case and after 3 weeks it persists, might be a good idea to see a Dr or get some sort of professional opinion.

      Gartner's duct cysts happen in the room already occupied by the Gartner's duct, normally on the side walls of the vagina. This duct is lively during fetal growth but generally go away after birth. Not in every case but in some - sections of the duct can gather fluid and develop into a vaginal wall cyst later on in years.

      Vaginal cysts are likely to have women complain of soreness while having sex, or when inserting tampons.

      If a cyst exists it would be monitored through routine checkups for growth and other changes. Should the cyst play up and cause symptoms the option is there to have it removed, or in some cases not an option if the doctor feels it necessary. Removal is done by surgical excision.

      Cysts surgically removed do not normally come back As like with most treatments there are the risks to consider, and surgical excision being one of them.
      Bartholin gland cyst: What are Bartholin Glands? They are two glands sited at either side of the vaginal opening. Both produce fluids that lubricate the opening to the vagina. If one of the glands becomes blocked fluids can build up inside the gland causing a painless lump called a Bartholin cyst. The cysts as a rule do not need treating but in some cases surgery might be suggested to drain them.

      Another problem and a common one too, is the case of an infected hair shaft. Symptoms are a red tender lump which forms after skin bacteria caused by infection happens at the base of a hair shaft

      Vaginal sores, blisters, pimples, bumps or lumps do not always mean there is something seriously wrong; nevertheless it is best to have an odd finding or changes to your normal vaginal behaviours to have them checked out

  32. QUESTION:
    Girls help please , personal!!!?
    okay soo , i held me pee in a lot so i went to the doctor they gave me pills for urine infection my vigina has been feeling uncomfortable. Today i was using the restroom saw white stuff in my undies so i decided to check myself . I did and like parts of my vigina (under the clit) are really red . now i know its not a yeast infection cause i know ehats that like. I also only been with my bf i know i dont have aids or anything what can it be?

    • ANSWER:
      The white stuff in your undies is possibly just vaginal discharge. I've met lots of women where some of the stuff that comes out is white. Also if you had sex without a condom recently this could really just be semen leaking out of you. This is a pretty common thing actually.

      I wouldn't worry too much about it. I don't think that it is an STD. If you experience itching, burning, abnormal odors, bumps, etc. then I would consult a doctor. You can also check on this website and read to see what you can learn about it. http://www.webmd.com/

  34. QUESTION:
    Someone please help tell me what this is! (women issues)?
    Alright so i'm 17 and for the last two weeks i've been produsing alot of wetness from my vigina, bassically everyday by the time i get home from school i have to change my underwear and it's been causeing a rash because of the wetness, so i got curios and i looked down there and it's really red like irittated red and on the inside wall there's like several small bumps on both sides, I've never had sex, nor have done anything sexual... What's going on?!?!

    • ANSWER:
      Have you taken antibiotics lately? If so, you likely have bacterial vaginosis or "BV" as the doctors call it. BV is just a change in the normal bacteria that live in your vagina. Sometimes taking antibiotics can cause this, and other times stress can cause this. If the discharge is very thin, runny an fishy smelling its likely BV. Go to the GYN or even your local health unit and they can treat you there with a drug called metronidazole (also called flagyl). IF you have a white, more thick discharge with lots of itching and redness, this is likely a yeast infection. It is also easily treated and is more likely to be the culprit if the itchiness and redness is the worst part. You health unit or your GYN can treat it, however over the counter things like monistat may make it better, but may not make it go away. NEITHER OF THESE ARE CONTRACTED BY SEX. hope this helps.

So please help asap !

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like skin irritation. when you shave, shave downward. I know it doesn't seem as close, but you will NOT get these bumps. Also, if you use lotion, do not use anything with scent, it can irritate sensitve skin and skin that has just been shaved. Mellow out, do not shave and DO NOT pick at them!!!!! take a warm bath to try to draw out any infection and just relax.

On the outer top of my vigina it started like a cluster of reddish bumps on it, and now it spread and looks like my skin there is going away almost like scabs and I looked at it in the mirror and I know it's gross but it looks soggy and kinda saggy. I'm so scared and if any one knows what they might think it could be what is something I could put on it or something that could get rid of it. PLEASE HELP!!! thanks who ever dose :)

    • ANSWER:
      Go to the doctor who does your regular pelvic exams/prescribed your birth control for an exam. No one on internet can diagnose. Diagnosing requires physical examination.

      Try not to freak out. Just get an appointment, get seen and get treated. Do what you can in the moment. Worrying won't help, although we have all gone through this, but in hindsight we all realize the worrying is counterproductive and stressful. Best Wishes for continued health.

  38. QUESTION:
    Its UGLY??? No immature answers please? PART 2?
    OK, this is going to sound so weird, but i need to ask...
    my viginia has kind of dry brownish skin flaps... and the skin around it is never smooth and gets these little red bumps... ive tried creams and stuff, but nothing seems to make it better?? it just looks.... ugly.... im afraid if i guy were to see they would be grossed out... is there such a thing as an ugly vigina?? does it sound like i have one? no immature answers please!

    i just wanted to add that im 14 almost 15 btw... still a virgin...

    • ANSWER:
      Good. Stay a virgin until you are older.

      Now, I took a human sexuality class, and we discussed the very thing about women's bodies that you seem to have a problem with-which is I assume you labia minora.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labia_minora

      Every women has a different shape and texture to their private parts, and applying "creams and stuff" won't change that (unless you have an infection that is causing the red bumps-plus, applying creams and stuff just sounds like it would burn). So, no, you do not have an ugly vagina.

      The best advice that I can give you is that you should concentrate on developing a better image about your nether regions. It's only natural to feel the way that you do (especially at your age), and believe it or not, a lot of women have plastic surgery to change the appearance of their nether regions (which-eewwh).

      So don't worry about it.

  39. QUESTION:
    Do I have Genital herpes?
    I am 20 years old and sexually active. Ever since I was a small child I have gotten herpe cold sores. About two weeks ago my vigina was itchy and kinda sore after my period. Yesterday I noticed a thick white discharge and today I noticed a small bump that burns. It is only one small bump and doesn't look like the clusters of small sores I get on my mouth. Does that mean I have genital herpes! Ive been on antibiotics because I have pnemunia so is it a yeast infection? Im so freaked out that I might have genital herpes!

    • ANSWER:
      It's likely due to the antibiotics and not genital herpes but a yeast infection so relax. Remember that
      Antibiotics, by definition, are supposed to kill bacteria; in many situations, such as when you have a bacterial infection, that’s a good thing. But those antibiotics, while doing their job on one part of your body, can cause problems elsewhere: They could be destroying “good bacteria” in your vagina — bacteria that help to keep the body's natural yeast population in check. When the good bacteria are destroyed, yeast can multiply and potentially cause a yeast infection. However, using probiotics to replace the good bacteria that the antibiotic will eliminate. Probiotics are bacteria similar to the normal bacteria that live in and on the body.

      The best sources of probiotics are organic yogurt with live bacterial cultures and supplements that contain “good” bacteria — look for the words “lactobacillus” or “acidophilus” on the label. These products can help restore the body’s normal balance of good bacteria to yeast. However, the amount of probiotics that yogurt and supplements contain can vary widely, so inspect the labels carefully before you buy

    • ANSWER:
      Hello Rachey9, here is an article that I had actually found on a teen site but it really explains yeast infections in a informative way. I hope this helps you. Congrats on the baby. Take care.

      YEAST INFECTION

      Yeast infections usually occur in warm, moist parts of the body, such as the mouth and moist areas of skin. When they cause an infection in the vagina, it is known as vulvovaginal candidiasis.

      Many girls find that yeast infections tend to show up right before they get their periods because of the hormonal changes that come with the menstrual cycle. Clothing (especially underwear) that is too tight or made of materials like nylon that trap heat and moisture might make yeast infections more likely because yeast can thrive in this type of environment. Using scented sanitary products can irritate the vagina, and douching can upset the healthy balance of bacteria in the vagina. Both can make yeast infections more likely.

      Yeast infections can happen to any girl, and they're not considered sexually transmitted infections — although they may be able to be spread from one sexual partner to the other. This is rare, though, and the partner of someone who has a yeast infection does not automatically have to be treated unless symptoms appear.

      What Are the Symptoms of a Yeast Infection?
      Common signs and symptoms of yeast infections may include:

      •itching and irritation in the vagina
      •redness, swelling, or itching of the vulva (the folds of skin outside the vagina)
      •a thick, white discharge that can look like cottage cheese and is usually odorless, although it might smell like bread or yeast
      •pain or burning when urinating or during sex

      If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor or gynecologist. It's easy to confuse the symptoms of a yeast infection with those of some STDs and other vaginal infections. Your doctor can give you the right diagnosis so that you can be treated appropriately.

  41. QUESTION:
    A Few Questions About Sex/Female Anatomy/Etc Not For Young Kids?
    Im not a girl but have a few questions am hoping someone like a nurse or a professional can answer and with no flaming these are for me and for my girlfriend so here goes

    1)Someone said that a girls pubic hair is shaved off it can cause an infection true or false?

    2)After me and my girl are done having sex she gets really sour when finished and when she goes pee she says it really hurts this is only after sex why is that?

    3)This ones kinda hard to type but here goes, I have gotten oral sex plenty of times but never once has this happen, my current girlfriend says that she gets this weird taste in back of her throat maybe kinda sticky but I never once have cummed and such, someone says there sucking all the remaining stuff in ur penis like pee and such is that true? or what can it be?

    4)In the vagina where is all the feeling coming from? what I mean is some people saying the longer your penis is the better while others say it dont matter cause all the feeling is coming from the vagina opening and thats it, that all the vagina walls inside are just normal while the opening which is tightest is where the girl gets the feeling from

    5)They say when a girl has sex alot that they get loose while others say its not the number of times but how big the penis is thats stretching it out so when someone else has sex with smaller penis they cant feel the gap if you know what am saying is that true?

    6)related to question 5 if you have sex alot or lets say have sex with same girl alot but then start fingering her while your having sex which is like a bigger a bigger penis since ur penis and ur fingers does she get loose and stay that way? Iv read that during that moment she will get some loose but give it a few days her muscles will tighten up back to normal tight self is that true or false

    7)Does anal sex any good? I mean do girls even feel any pleasure I never done it to anyone but I dont think it has any feelings like the vigina

    8)How can you find out if a girl is able to have kids? does it cost alot?

    I know its a lot im sorry but if i can get some professional answers without anyone starting trouble or flaming or insults id really appreciate it

    • ANSWER:
      1) I've never heard that and since so many women do it (shave) my guess is that it's false.

      2) Sour what? Her attitude, her taste? If you are having unprotected sex, your semen will effect her taste. If you are having vigorous sex, you are rubbing her bladder during sex and she could have an infection causing her to experience pain when she goes to the bathroom after.

      3) Urine and semen come through the same tube, so it could be that she's tasting the after-taste so to speak. It could be your diet also as that will also effect your scent and your taste. Could be she doesn't like the taste of your ejaculation fluid.

      4) The average depth of a vagina is 4 to 6 inches, with most feeling in the first 3 inches (where the G-spot is located). If you go too deep you will bump her cervix and cause pain.

      5) The vagina is a muscular tube, so if she uses her pelvic muscles and does Kegel exercises, she shouldn't be 'loose'. The vagina will stretch to fix the size of the guy width-wise for the most part.

      6) No, the vagina is a muscle, it doesn't stay any one size.

      7) It's a way different feeling. It can feel good to some, not so good to others.

      8) It's normal to assume that a girl can have kids, just like we assume a guy can father children. They don't do a test to find out if someone is sterile or has fertility issues unless they haven't been able to get pregnant on their own after a few years of trying. Depends on the doctor. The tests are expensive and it depends on if your insurance covers infertility costs.
