Conditions with symptom: 'stinging vagina'
Have stinging around my vagina and rectum. Been going on for 3 and 1/2 months. Keeps me up at night. Sometimes I have to get up in the night and take a shower to help stop the stinging. Been treated for pinworms and it's not that. I think it might be some kind of parasite. I have gotten reddish/blueish spots on my tummy and bottom. Do you have any suggestions of what it may be?
Anytime I take a wee imy vagina stings , and it keeps getting itchy out of no where ??
I have multiple bowel movements throughout the day. The stools are thin, sometimes they have one side which is angular rather than round. I never feel that my rectum is completely empty and my vagina hurts after I have defecated, as though it were somehow attached to the rectum. I am kept awake at night by the pain from both vagina and rectum. Alternatively, if I have diarrhoea instead, my vagina then feels as though it is being stung by stinging nettles and I am unable to walk for the rest of the day.
Hey. I'm 23 with no kids or anything and I have exactly the same symptoms as you and I have been through all the tests (colonoscopy, defecating proctogram, anal manometry etc.) They concluded that I have rectal prolapse and rectocele, which basically means the rectum is prolapsing into the vagina. It can be fixed. In my case it looks like I'm having ventral rectopexy. Don't panic and look online forever until it gets worse, which is exactly what I did. Just go to the doctor go through the motions and they'll sort it out. Definitely too uncomfortable to carry on living with my love!
I am 20 and I have had sex before, though not that much. However I have masterbated regularly for years. When I was a younger probably 5-6 years ago I had a skin tag removed, that was over my vagina. Apparently it was just a random separation of tissue from using tampons and is quite normal. My problem is that I get stinging pain around my vagina after or during sex and masterbation. Is this something to do with the surgery? Or is just that my vagina isn't stretched enough for sex? If it is because of the skin tag, like damaged nerves or something from the surgery, can it be fixed? thanks
You need to see a doctor - many women experience pain when engaged in intercourse and it is normally something that can be corrected. God made sex to be fun - not painful
Whilst I have sex after a certain amount of time I have a stinging pain in my vagina and it swells up. This seems to only occur when my partner cums.
It is possible to be allergic so sperm. Talk to your gp.
hi iv just recently got little red spots like blisters on the outside and inside of my vagina im really worried as i cant pee with out it stinging and cant have sex it also itches and hurts when i walk can anyone help amy
Hi Amy, I sometimes have this problem too, do u shave down there ? if u do it could just be razor bumps, i usually find if u put some aloe vera on the bumps it stops the itching. Hope this helps.
im 16 and ive recently gotten the bar or implanon in my arm. after a few days i found my vagina stinging, and my boobs really tender? is this normal or will i have to get it checked out?
I am also on implanon and have today just had checks done for the same reason but i have had the implant in now for 5 months, I was advised that it would more then likely be my body adjusting to the implant, but I would advise you to still get it checked out as its better to be sure as any abnormal symptoms or changes are best checked by your doctor.
Hi, I have Implanon too, been in for a year, and the only issue i had was migraines for a week or so. I've never heard of it affecting the vagina like that, boobs maybe because it's extra hormones being put into your body but I would defo get everything checked out, it might not be the right thing for you to use as contraception.
I have two dark spots(one larger than the other) next to my vagina and they hurt(like a stinging pain) when I scratch them. It also hurts a bit when I touch it. Please help!
I am 16 and on the left side of my vagina near to the anus I have a stinging pain and itching. I had a look at it and there is a slight raising of the skin but it is not hard. What is it?
I'm 23 years old and female. At the beginning and after sex with my husband my vagina is really sore, like a stinging feeling! Any ideas of what is causing this and what I can do to stop it please?
Hi i am 18 years old and i have been with my partner for about a year, every time we have sex whether he ejaculates in me or not, or especially when i urine after i get burning stinging sensation in my vagina, it can be very painful. Do you know what it is or what i can do about it to stop it?
It could be that your vagina is not lubricated well enough, try buying some Lubrication and using that. if this does not help consult your GP.
I used to have the same problem, i thought it was normal after sex! It turned out i had Chlamydia, you could also have a yeast infection.You might want to get it checked asap so you can be treated for it! Wish you the Best of Luck!
