I'm an 18 year old girl and after years of confusion and questions i feel i should ask my question, my urethra is just inside the opening of my vagina and is BELOW my vagina, not in between my clitoris and vagina opening, i realise that this isn't the normal placement and i wonder if this is at all abnormal or dangerous? Help!
If your 2 days into your period and you mastibate then your period stops what does this mean? I need to know this for a friend not for me... She's worried as her period isn't over but she isn't sure why it has carried on? Can anyone help?
I am 16 with 34GG, extremely sagging breasts. Because of them I have back pain, trouble doing sports, trouble sleeping, excessive sweating under them and immense psychological distress over them. I am also gender fluid, and it is difficult for people to take me seriously when I introduce myself as a male. Because of my age, I do not know if I could be accepted for a breast reduction on the NHS. Does anyone have any ideas?
Hi Currently 27 and for last year I've been secretly dressing as a girl in private. This started out to be a bit of fun but it seemed rather natural. However recently I've been thinking more and more about it. I would like to be a girl full time but don't really want to act girly more of a tomboy. Little worried about telling GP or a therapist as above don't want to be girly just have a body of a girl. Can would this still be considered as gender-dysphoria or will I just get laughed out of the office..
Hi, just as people who are raised as their self-identified gender can be anything from super-girly to super-macho, so can transgender people. I'm a transguy and i wouldn't consider myself exceptionally macho and I know some very tomboy transgirls and thats okay. All that matters is that you are who you want and feel comfortable being, and no decent gender therapist will have an issue with that. The best thing to do would be to go to your GP and ask to be referred to a gender specialist, as GPs are often not very well qualified in that area. Once you see the specialist, you haven't signed up for anything long-term and you can just chat and work out who you are and what the next step is for you.
I'm 17 and I'm transgender. I was born a female and I now identify as male but I haven't started with any medical procedures or hormone replacement therapy yet. Due to my gender dysphoria it can be difficult to take a look down there but since I've always been scared of inserting anything, fingers or otherwise, I've taken a couple of looks recently. I think my vaginal opening might actually be too small, and I get very heavy and uncomfortable discharge. So I'm worried that I may have a problem, and I have no idea what's going on inside but it could be damaging me. My problem is that I had a swab before and it hurt so bad and I felt really shaken by it, so I don't know if I can go to the doctor. What do I do?
My advice for you is to go and visit your doctor
Having a very small opening is nothing to be worried about. If you haven't done much down there then it is likely not going to have stretched at all and I was always really worried about this growing up, that it would never fit what it was supposed to fit etc, so I had similar concerns if for different reasons. Swabs and things like smear tests can hurt for everyone, as when not aroused the vaginal opening is far less elastic. Vaginas tend to take care of themselves just fine most of the time! If you are having uncomfortable and heavy periods then speak to a doctor, as they suck, and especially if it is an aspect of your body you aren't comfortable with and don't associate yourself with then going on something like the pill will help sort that out and can make them far lighter and less uncomfortable (Although if/once you start hormone therapy this might not be neede/possible). I doubt very much that any of it is damaging - even if it feels like someone has pressed the 'blend' button! But if you are really worried, speak to a doctor, they don't have to go prodding about, but can likely just give you the confirmation you need. Embrace who you are! Even Cis guys and girls have similar worries/hang-ups so although I can imagine it must be really hard for you, you are not alone!
i had a gastric bypass eight weeks ago, i have only been able to eat around a hundred calories a day; i had an edoscope test and the consultant said i have h pylori which i have been treated for and a small pouch, he gave me some fortisips however the sugar gives me dumping, i have been to see my gp as i am getting pain in my lower back and pain in my stomach radiating to my middle back and feeling very sick i even have terrible cramps in my legs and have bouts of confusion and feeling faint, my gp doesnt seem concerned and just advised that it takes 3-6 months before u feel better, has anyone else had these problems?
Since gender reassignment surgery I have had two ops to repair a prolapse which is basically the scrotal skin flopping out of my vagina. It doesn't completely flop out, but results in a bulge of skin between my legs. Each repair operation is the equivalent of undergoing reassignment surgery again and is very painful and I have to stay in hospital for 10 + days and have a pack etc. Is there any way to repair this without having the extensive surgery that I have already undergone 3 times now?
