What's going on?? Am I normal?
Hi. I have nvr had kids, bc i am only 14, but i have sumthing in my vagina tht blocks anything going into the vagina. I Get Butterflies in my stomach when i wiggle it around with my fingers. When I Strain, It comes out more, but it does come out of my vagina. It Has A Whole at the bottom of it, also. Can Someone please help me with this? I Have been researching and i cant find any pictures of the inside of the vigina to know if its normal or not. What Is This Thing inside my vagina????? Is it normal? How do u fix it? wht is it? I Am desparate for help... .
sounds like you have a prolapse of some kind. possibly a cystocele.. but there are other types. the hole you are feeling is your cervix. you need to see your GP. there are several treatments, but you do need to get to a GP.
hi im 16, i dont know weather my vagina is normal, the inside of my vagina, well everyone says that your ment to have 2 holes, but i only have 1 i think, im not sure. im just really worried about this. id just like to know about the insides of the vagina please
The second hole that everyone is telling you about is your urethral opening. It is wicked small and on the top wall of your vaginal canal very near the vaginal opening. This is where your urine exits. I assume your vaginal canal (where babies come from ;-) is the one hole you said you knew you had. Unless you knew about those two and were talking about your cervical os. This is the opening that leads to your uterus, is pretty deep inside, and is closed very tight. Hope that cleared things up.
Hello, i'm almost 17, i shave my vagina and i have been with my boyfriend for almost a year and i am scared of him seeing my vagina because my vagina looks a little like image 24 where my lips hang over a little bit but not that much, is that normal????
Absolutely normal. Don't worry, you're fine!
yes this is normal it's just loose skin thats all even i have it.:D
Ok so i am 15 and I am not sexually active but every once in a while the top of my vagina (right under my belly button but right above my vagina) inside of my body, it feels lik something is forcing my vagina down or pressing against it n it really hurts.... Could u tell me wat it is ?
Im 14 sometimes my vagina gets really itchy and sore then I go to the toilet to sort it out, I normally do this by having a pee or washing my vagina, how ever the last few times I have had worms (like the ones you get in ur belly) crawling out of my. Vagina and when they come out the itching stops. What should I do???
These worms are called pinworms or threadworms and are often passed on through young children. You can inhale eggs which travel to your intesting and hatch or you can scratch yourself and carry the eggs under your nails which, if your a bit of a nail-biter could result in swallowing eggs. You can make an appointment with your GP and be prescribed two tablets. You take one the day you get them and the other one a week later. As you have these worms, your whole family should take these tablets as well. When worms spread to the vagina it causes itchiness, redness and soreness. this is called vaginitis and can be passed on by spreadation from the anus to the vagina. Your GP will prescribe you ointment or cream to cure your problem. To prevent this from reoccuring try to keep your nails short and make sure your bed linen, towels and underwear are washed regularly ( about twice a week).Hope this helps :)
Also, I think you may have thrush at the same time if you are itchy and sore down there. Ask your doctor for some canestan cream which will sort it out. It's a good idea to speak to your mum or an older sister who will have been through these kinds of things before :-)
I have a growth in my vagina. It has the same colour as the vagina. I can see it protruding out of the vagina when I spread my legs and look in a mirror and it is about 3cm. It is not painful but sensitive to touch and I have pain during intercourse. What could it be?
I'm not really sure, but a painful growth should be checked by a doctor as soon as possible.
did you find out what this was, as I have the same
I have teeny tiny little while spots on the skin that is in the entrance to my vagina (the skin with the folds and ridges). They are pinkish/whitish and I did not notice them until I used a magnifying glass to check my vagina during my monthly inspection. I would say I have close to fifty of them. Are these normal? Are there supposed to be little white spots on this portion of the vagina (the top part inside the opening to the vagina)?
Ok I'm 15 I'm 25 weeks and 6 days I'm having this problem with my vagina my lips of the vagina is thin an have bumps on the inside of the lips on sometimes have a iching sensations and around the opening of my vagina its redish and seem to have a small inflamed red sore bump an my opening is like torn looking an that area is a purplesh color but my lips are pink and gets this purplesh and my discharge has this yellowish color and have a oder and behind this lips of my vagina is always red and sometimes raw and when i have intercourse it hurts and my vagina swells up and I'm just wondering whats going on
I am 18 and my vagina is alomost to my anus, I am affraid that the next time I have sex its going to rip right threw my vagina, what is my vagina like this?
