Vaginal Discomfort

For the past year, my periods have been getting increasingly heavier and more painful - so much so that I can barely move and feel as if I am going to throw up. My gynocologist said that it was normal and waved me off even though my Mother has PCOS and wanted to see if she could get me on birth control. For my last two cycles, my periods have only been a day long, extremely heavy, and painful. I'm a teenage girl and I don't have very much persuasive power - If I go to the gynocologist will I just be waved off again (& waste my parents' money) or will they actually help me this time?

There are good treatment options to decrease heavy painful periods .

I'm having a darker discharge after masturbating a couple days ago with a bottle of something. Im having some discomfort in my pelvic bone area since then too. I'm concerned about maybe having an sti or is this just my body cleaning itself

If you are concerned about possible injury in your pelvic area please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center or a nearby urgent care center. 

If I put a finger in it feels like there's something there. It isn't a tampon it feels like muscle. It doesn't seem like a cylinder vaginal canal. I tried to scratch it with my nail and I couldn't feel anything. Is this normal anatomy or should I be worried?

It is difficult to know by what you describe.  You may even be feeling your cervix at the end of the vaginal canal.  

It does not sound like anything to worry about

Hi, I'm 12 and am not sexually active. I recently saw something sticking out of my vaginal hole, it's half a centimetre thick and quite fleshy. I'm worried it'll get in the way when I have sex. It's a couple of centimetres long and doesn't hurt when I pull. I'm not sure how long it's been there but it might have been there for about a year. Does anyone have an idea as to what it might be? I thought it might be my hymen but it's too fleshy and it's not coming out.

It is hard to know from your description.  Your body will continue to change over the next couple of years.  If it is really bothering you, ask your parent to schedule you an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center. 

It may be helpful to try and accept things as they are now knowing that your body is changing.  

Hello I want to know If I should worry about this, the last 2 days I've been experiencing a super brownish vaginal discharge, even though I'm not close to my period, I'm not taking birth control or anything, I don't have any itching or symptoms for an infection, is this normal?

Brownish discharge is usually a sign of "old" blood from the uterus from previous cycle.  

It is not unusual for this to occasionally happen to women.  It is from an small irregularity in hormones.  

If you are sexually active and do not use condoms for protection against sexually transmitted infections, it could also be a sign of an infection 

If that is a possiblity, schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center.  

Hi, I'm 16 and got my period within the last year. I have currently been lightly bleeding for 21 straight days, however, and I'm concerned. What could be some causes and solutions for this?

Abnormal bleeding can be from a few different things such as irregular hormones, infection, pregnancy.   

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health for further evaluation.

Hello! I am a eighteen years old fellow girl. I've had my period when i was twelve years old since then i had it regularly. But after few years(maybe when i was 16/17 years old) i started to miss my periods by three to four months or even five and after that my period lasted for almost a month and then again miss the cycle by five months and again it lasted for a month. I've been to doctors but to no avail.

It sounds like you may have a hormonal imbalance or perhaps polycystic ovarian syndrome. 

Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health center to be evaluated.  

You most likely have some vaginal irritation. Try sitting in a battub of warm water, (no soap) once a daily for a couple of days. Epsom salts in the tub may be helpful too. If you have any bleeding or discharge or this doesn't help please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health to be checked.

I masturbated with a hairbrush handle, and this was my first time masturbating, and now my vagina feels weird. Like it doesn't feel how it used to, and it's sorta uncomfortable. And I have no idea what to do, like do I have an infection or will this problem go away by itself?
