Vaginal Health

My vaginal opening has a permanent gaping hole and the insides can be seen this is due to an active sexual life. I am 20 years old and started having sex when I was 18. Two fingers stimulation feels like nothing and orgasming is difficult. I feel super conscious that I may have become loose. What should I do?

I would recommend you schedule an appointment with a gynecologist for a full examination. 

Hello, I am 18. From a few months ago, my vaginal odor has been sweet-smelling. I did not think much of this until my vaginal discharge started changing from clear/whitish and thick to whitish/yellowish and stringy (a month ago). Upon googling, I realised this could be a yeast infection, which corresponded to another symptom I had: vaginal itching (for an unknown duration). I was relatively sure I had a yeast infection, so I went to a Pharmacy and described my symptoms. The pharmacist instructed me to take a single dose of fluconazole, after which (the next day) my vaginal discharge was clear and I did not notice any vaginal odor. A week after, the vaginal itching stopped. But, a few weeks later (now), I find that the sweet smell has returned and my vaginal discharge is now whitish/yellow (though not stringy). What could be the reasons why? I have never been sexually active so it cannot be a sexually transmitted disease. Please help me figure out my next course of action, is it possible that changes have occurred and this is in line with a normal vagina (a sweet smell)? Many websites suggest visiting a doctor but that is not feasible for me.

What you describe does sound like a yeast infection.  It would be best to come to Corner Health for further evaluation.

You may need a longer treatment and it is always important to see if there is any health reason you may be getting a yeast infection.

I had symptoms of a yeast infection, I bought an over the counter cream and used it as followed for 3 consecutive nights, after that everything seemed normal, but I still felt like swollen, a week or so has passed, also I had my period during those consecutive days and only one time used a tampon because I was afraid the infection could come back, and I have no symptoms or anything, should I go to the gyno?

If you are having continued symptoms it is a good idea to see you primary care provider or you can schedule an appointment at Corner Health Center. 

I had a vaginal infection, a week or more ago, if I want to have sex, is it safe or what precautions should I have I'm afraid that it would smell or that I can infect my bf, it was only a itchy vaginal infection, I used a cream for 3 nights as my doctor prescribed but I not sure its safe to have sex yet

Yeast is not transmitted sexually so your bf will not get it.  Sometimes sex is uncomfortable because of a yeast infection and that may be a reason to not have sex but if you are not experiencing any discomfort it is ok to have sex.

Is it normal that every time I stop having sex for more than a week, the next time I have a light bleeding not red but more like a pinky color even when we are in the foreplay and introduces his fingers in my vagina that kind of pinky light "discharge" appears does that could mean anything serious? Can I do something about it ?

Your problem may be that you do not have enough vaginal lubrication.  Try using a water-based vaginal lubricant which you can get at the drug store or online.    If you do not find that it helps your situation please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center. 

Im having a weird discharge and it comes out a lot frequently. First it was thick and clumpy which happens before I start my period. But it started getting very watery and yellowish and come out a lot. I can feel it when moving around. I thought it would go away after my period but it’s still here. The last time I had sex was 2 weeks ago and a condom was used. I’m scared I have a std or something. I just want this discharge to go away.

An increase or change in vaginal discharge can be caused by different things including stis.  Please schedule an appointment with your PCP or at Corner health center to get it checked.  

I have a vagina and when I was younger I started masturbating with an electric toothbrush. Now that I'm older I've bought a few vibrators and none of them work for me like the toothbrush? This is a stupid question but is it possible I've programmed myself so the only thing that works is that dumb toothbrush? What about having sex with other people? Am i desensitized?

That is a complicated question and I would recommend you speak with a gynecologist or sex therapist/counselor to get more information.  

I have had discharge since i was 10 I'm 14 and i don't think it is before first period discharge cause if it was i would of gotten it 2 years before my period so, also it is a nonstop recurrence i haven't lived a day after 10 without discharge and its kinda worrying.

Most women have discharge that starts at puberty, age when periods begin.  Sometimes discharge changes or increases because of products /soaps, creams that are used.  If you are sexually active discharge can be a sign of infection.  If your discharge is concerning please schedule an appointment to talk about this with your dr.  Or schedule an appointment at Corner health.   

Is it normal to have two spots like moles in your labia they look like brownish they don't hurt or anything they are plain, and I believe I have never seen them, should I be worried about an STD?

The moles you describe may be normal.  It is important to monitor them for any changes.  They are not typical of any STDs  You should schedule an appointment to have them looked at. 

I've noticed I have small bumps located on my bartholin gland, they aren't pus filled or anything, and they're the same color as my vaginia. I've never had sex but I do masturbate( I wash my hands before ), but I have had a UTI before from being fingered from someone else. Should I be worried about these bumps or is there any thing I can do to make them go away?

It is difficult to know what the bumps are without seeing them.  They may be from irritation.  You can schedule an appointment to have them assessed.
