    I'm 19 years old and I think I might have OCD. The things that make me think this are firstly I can't stand nails and cut them so low they bleed, secondly I have strange eating habits I have a limited diet of things I will eat and I find it very stressful trying new foods or having something like vegetables in my food to the point I won't eat something like spaghetti bolognaise if it has veg in it, this makes it hard going to restaurants trying to find something I can eat on the menu it also means at home I have to have a certain plate and fork just so I know no ones ate veg or anything I don't like on my plate. Thirdly I have a fear that things are coming to get me, from the tv, the wardrobe, under the bed I have to check it all before I go to bed or I won't feel safe, but it's not just at night if I walk into a room and no one else is there sometimes I can feel uneasy expectially if there's a tv or wardrobe in the room and when I'm in the bath I have the door slightly open to make me feel safer, I also have disturbing images when I close my eyes of death and scary things. Some of the smaller things are that i feel the need to touch things a lot and put things in order. It might be nothing but these are just some of the main things I feel aren't normal, there are other things too.

    Hi, I had these were bumps on the outer ebd of my labia for the longest (like yrs). When I got a pap smear I was good but im curious to what these things are. Its like my labia has been cut into several lil pieces. Its like penile things on a guys penis but its not. Its hard to explain. I guess some people mistaken them as an early stage of genital warts... what could these things be called? Its not fordyce spots either

    There are such things as vaginal acne and razor bumps from constant shaving. Razor bumps tend yo itch or sting a little bit, the itch only happens after the scar / cut has healed. If you shave alot you tend to cut and reopen previous cuts or bumps. The burn is in the time period of when it first occurs. The bump usually is the scar.

    I'm also a teenage girl and I do the same except with me its not an exact number of times it is just until I feel satisfied with the amount of times i have touched whatever it is (mainly work surfaces when walking through the house) Then sometimes have to go back and touch it if necesserary :S I also have an habit of looking at things in a certain order then in reverse order until I feel satisfied that I have done this enough times :S strange I know ha.

    I am also a teenage girl of the same age and i do exactly the same thing but i have to touch things 3 times until that feeling if something bad happening goes out of my head, it makes everything so much longer than it needs to be I hate it!

    I feel really embarrassed about talking to my mum about things like periods and pains. I don't know how I'm going to cope when I tell her about the boy at school I like.. How can I make things easier?

    Im 24 and still find it hard to talk to my mum! Maybe there are friends you can talk to, an older sibling maybe? Trust me, your mum has been through all of this and has all her experience to share with you! Maybe you could get a book from the library or a leaflet and try and bring up the subject that way? The sooner you open up and get it off your chest the better you'll feel! They're all natural feelings and i hope you find a way to bring it up :-) I have a 2 year old and hope she feels able to come to me, im pretty sure your mum is the same!

    I have been told by 2 doctors that I have scabies. I am waiting for the results and using the treatments prescribed now. My question is should small dark coloured mite things (some dots some longer) leach out of my skin? Does that mean the treatment is working? Should these things be coming out? I have them in other places too - feet, face. Another dr said that is possibly wasn't scabies. But the point is these things are coming out. It's like a small cut appears out of nowhere in some instances. I don't itch it's more of a tingling sensation. please help I am very distressed. Thank you.

    Try First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I too had it all over my body and this has cleared it up amazingly :)

    Hi I have recently taken up the slimming world diet which is low fat and high on fibre. It seems to have brought my passage to a standstill! Is more fruit and veg going to get things moving. I tried an over the counter solution that worked but would rather things pocked up naturally. I just feel so full!! Thanks

    I think it may be the same worry I had, I found my worry was Fordyce's spots which are small pale spots 1-3mm in diameter, they are very common and not a thing to worry about

    I think i can answer the first part of your problem, small spot like things on the underside of your bell end? If its the same of what i have then you have nothing to worry about, i done some research and i believe its something called Pearly Penile Papules, or something like that, just search PPP on google i believe there was some images that matched what i have. Its something to do with DNA that you have inherited but its not an STI/D of any type, neither is it contagious.

    Thank you for the additional information about your partner's rough tongue. When two people are included in the equation, this complicates things. If your partner is being too rough with you, then you need to educate your partner to be more gentle - and this is the case not only for fellatio, but also for all things sexual. We all have to make things clear to our partners what works and what doesn't work for us. It's like Goldilocks: some things are too hot, some things too cool, and other things just right.

    Ny daughter does the same things and has done since she was 6 yrs old. The pros said she was just clever.she is now 12 and I have looked at all the things she does and she has got alot of traites of alot of things, but had more things hedding towards asperges, so since I mentioned this to her high school they refered her to pros and awaiting assesment but can take a long time.but hope we all get the help we need.and you do to.

    Looking at the pictures things didn't seem that odd. We all have different bodies enlarged labia can make things much more interesting (and attractive) Search for the Y project to see how much things can vary and still be normal and sexy!

    Well, I drop stuff, can;t multi task, couldn't get myself dressed till I was 11. Plus I can't carry 3 things at once. if you are always clumsy like every day. And you find things that other can do hard, and you seem to always do ever day things wrong and you have a slow reaction then you most likely have dyspraxia

    I'm 40 woo hoo and I scored 8... i think to many people are taking this test far too serious. It clearly states on the site that it is not a true prediction for autism. My partner who works in mental health says i have autism because i like to do things in a certain way. If it's not broken don't try and fix it... just because we do things in a certain way just means we have formed a pattern that flows and know it works. Rpeated behaviour forms habits. There is nothing wrong with doing things the same other than the fact it can get boring at times so do challenge yourself to do things differently from time to time!

    Stress can effect body as well as the mind, there is no two ways about it. You must take things day by day and try to relax. Excercise even via a simple walk, releases endorfins tha make you feel better. Try not to overwhelm youself and tackle things peice at a time. Remember things do sort them selves out, just try not to push yourself if it does not happen all at once. Speak a Councellor they are great and can help you, they dont prescribe medicines. Try not to get stressed about the little things and control what you can and not try and control the stuff you cant.You be fine, give yourself some space, time and talk to someone who will help you. Physcologist.

    Hiya. I had my little boy 14mths ago via forceps delivery. things didn't go as planned when the dr pulled him out and i too had a 3rd degree tear.ended up in surgery for things to be repaired. what you've described is exactly what i felt. thought it was all in my head, but i felt like it was too tight. i ended up going back to see consultant and he agreed that things weren't right.gave me some vaginal dilators. used them for last few mths but not massive improvement. sex very painful, so much so don't want to go through with it. now been perscribed with dermovate cream but not sure if it's safe to use as it says for external use only. try going back to gp as i know how miserable it makes u. let alone frightened to have another one. crazy how many people effected like this! hope you get things sorted. x

    I am embarassed about my personality... I have quite a complicated history with mental health despite still being a young adult. I was on medication that meant I had no short term memory for things and don't remember a lot of things from those years. Unfortunately it came at the time I was doing gcse's and A levels which was key 'growing up' up, but I didn't get this as was too drugged up. I came off those meds and since have 2 extremes of personaluty. I am either very child-like and do odd things, or I am very serious and reserved. I try balancing it out but I am really struggling and it's affecting my well-being. Basically- I hate myself for who I am.

    You need not worry about being told something is wrong - it is likely that there will be a few relatively straight forward things you can try. The steroid creams that are often used are only available on prescription. There are some simple stretching and retraction methods that can sometimes help over a longer period that you can do at home, however doing these incorrectly can cause further problems or make things worse, particularly if there is any scarring or inflammation of the skin. It would be worth a quick visit to the GP to assess things - after all, this is not an uncommon problem and they will likely have treated a number of similar cases to yours recently...

    I have black splinter looking things under my little finger nails and i now worried after reading things about it. I used to bite my nails and have done for 25 years but ive only recently stopped to let the grow and now i have these black splinter looking things :-(

    I am 25 i was diagnosied with dyspraxia and dyslexia when i was 6, the only support from the schools that i went to form enfant to year 8 of senior school was to send me to sepical needs so sort my spelling and grammer. i only got my maths GCSE because i was classed as a outside student by the local college and my mum taught me doing various things to help me understand. i have had no help with dyspraxia. i still bump into things my writing is still bad and but my parents have incourage me to do things that dyspraxia does limit. i have improved over the years when i was younger i couldn't do two things at once. With good encouragement and support the person with dyspraxia can work with and/or around it. its good that the programme highlights dyspraxia it puts it out there and people could understand and recognise the systoms.

    For starters you are at an age where your body will be undergoing a tremendous amount of change, puberty, and for a few years you will not know exactly what is normal for YOUR vagina. A normal healthy vagina has only a mild non-offensive odor (the strong odor is usually from the exterior bits needing to be cleaned), it doesn't smell like rotten fish, it doesn't have a discharge like cottage cheese, it doesn't feel swollen inside or out, it is not intensly itchy, they don't change appearances quickly and it is not causing you to worry. If your girl bits, not just your vagina but vulva, clitoris, lips etc., do cause you to worry ask your Mom or make an appointment with your doctor. As girls our bodies change in so many ways during puberty, and through our whole lives, it is very hard to figure out what is and is not normal. Check them out on medical sites, and you will see there are so many different looks to a healthy vagina. Yours may look like #11 now, but probably not for long. All these have had hair cuts and been properly groomed for their photo shoots. Don't be afraid to spend some time with a mirror and learn what yours looks and feels like on the outside. You can even explore the vagina itself, with clean hands and short nails, using a gentle touch, yes I'm talking about feeling around on the inside. If you see, or feel, anything you're not sure about, watch it for a bit, and ask your Doctor or Mom if you are worried or concerned. Now I'm going to tell you the one thing a teen girl doesn't want to hear, TALK TO YOUR MOM. As a Mom I can tell you that your Mom will be happy to tell you what is going on and if you need to worry or not. If you don't want to, or can't talk to your Mom, ask another trusted female adult in your life. There may be a small amount of embarrassment, but it goes away quickly. For the most part our vaginas are pretty good at looking after themselves, and the fewer "treatments" like douches you use, the happier it will be. One doctor (a female Gynecologist) described the vagina like a self cleaning oven, keep the outside parts clean with mild soap, whatever kind doesn't cause you irritation, and let the inside take care of itself. I commend you for asking questions here. ****** I'll touch quickly on yeast infections as you ask specifically about those. Your vagina will become very, very itchy inside, your internal and external parts will feel swollen. maybe itchy, some women (I'm not one of them) have a discharge like cottage cheese and a smelly discharge. If you think you have a yeast infection, and you've never had one before, you need to see your Doctor to rule out any other types of infection. Some women never have one, some have them infrequently and some (like me) have them very regularly. I have one once every couple of months, it has something to do with my vagina having an environment conducive to yeast infections, it's not because of my sexual activity (I've been married to the same man for 18 years), it's just me. Girls bits should never be really itchy, yes they need the odd scratch, but you should not feel as though you need to scratch most of the time. When I was about 31, I discovered I had a yeast infection. When I was done my treatment I noticed that the constant urge to scratch, that I'd always had, was gone. I had been suffering unknowingly, Doctors could find no reason for the itchiness, with a mild yeast infection my entire life. I am much happier now that I'm not itchy all the time. When in doubt ask someone or see your Dr.

    hi on my penis i have these little small pimple things that feel like they have little stone things in them its weird

    Epididymitis is very common in young people, i myself have it as a matter of fact. The doctor just gave me some amoxicillin antibiotics which worked successful. Please dont worry about this infection because all it is, is inflammation of the epididymil which is fine and no you wont have the rest of your life, it often goes within a few weeks if treated everyday =].

BE STRONG! i understand you.. i HONESTLY do.. and for the longest time i thought i was the only person in the world who had this condition. because of this.. i've stopped making friends.. and the ones i had i pushed away... because ofcourse NO-ONE understood me. but now that im alittle older i see that i let alot of wonderful things pass me by. i wish i were still young like you .. there are sooooo many things that you still need to do in your life. <3 thinking about what you've said about kids.. that really hit home.. i don't date because i don't won't anyone to point out the odvious.. but NO LIE i went out shopping last year and saw 3 bearded ladies with handsome husbands and kids! THERE IS STILL HOPE. but recently i decided to continue seeking medical attention... and am on meds now... but it will take some time to see any results... but im hopeful this time.

    Hi I am 13 years old and I am stressed all the time. Ive Had panic attacks for over a year now and have been to see my doctor and has said they are only little so dont worry to much. But I worry over things like what if i have no friends by tomorrow what if everyone is going to hate me. Tests and things like what if something bads going to happen tomorrow. and i know this sounds silly but also things like getting bullied,slagged and just feeling unwanted im just feeling extremley stressed.
