Masturbation

So, I feel really dumb and embarrassed about this, but I feel really scared I just signed a death wish. I don't have a sex toy so, I decided to use my hairbrush handle. I haven't used it before. I did wash the handle with water before I used it, but I feel like an idiot. I feel (mentally) like I just gave myself herpes or cancer or something. Nothing is happening down there right now it feels fine, but I'm afraid I'm going to die or something...What do I do??

No reason to think that using a hairbrush handle will cause herpes or cancer or anything that would cause death.  

Most concerning would be irritation to the vaginal tissue.  If you experience any irritation or abnormal discharge schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or with Corner Health Center.  

Can I masterbate during the seven day recovery from gonorreha (18 Male)

Gonorrhea can be passed to another person until it is completely treated which is 7 days after treatment.  

This may be an odd question and is probably laughable but I figured it could be helpful to other people too. There is a challenge called "butt sharpies" that is pretty popular on a subreddit. As you can imagine, it's exactly what the name implies. Long story story short, I tried it. I had an off-brand large sharpie and inserted it opposite of the cap to be on the safe side. When it came out, the text markings saying "permanent marker" on the outside shell of the marker were mostly gone. Should I be concerned? Is there anything that can be done in this situation

Well, it wouldn't be surprising if the ink from the label did rub off.  If you are having any discomfort or other symptoms please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider.

I have been masturbating for about a year or more now. I am a teenage girl. I have on quite a few occasions, made it to where it felt like I was losing control, legs shaking a lot, stuff like that. I never orgasm, because I stop because I can't handle it. Is this a normal problem, and how do I handle it? I really want to orgasm at least once to know what it's like. I have tried so many times to handle it and get myself to orgasm. Idk what to do!! Please help!!

Masturbation and ability to orgasm are different for everyone.  Maybe the time is not right for you if it is causing you so much distress.  

Take some of the stress off of yourself and just let it happen when it happens.   

Can I have splinters in my vagina after 10 years? When I was young I wanted to know what penetration felt like and used a small wooden stick a few times, it never hurt and i've seen a gynecologist many times, I'm fine, but it still bothers me. Could I have splinters that can't be noticed and should I explain my stupid actions to my doctor?

It would be unlikely that you would have unnoticed splinters after 10 years.  If it is something that bothers you then talk to your dr about it.   

Hello, I found out I had chlamydia, I took all 4 of the Azithromycin pills. I'm I allowed to masturbate during the 7 weeks of recovery?

Yes, you can masturbate. It does not affect the treatment . 

During the first 7 days after taking the medication the infection can still be passed from one person to another. That is why people are instructed to abstain from sexual activity with another person for 7 days

Hi I'm a female, 19. Since I've started to masturbate I was too scared to orgasm/cum because I never wanted to end up cleaning up after myself/ making a mess so unknowingly I held my orgasm until I felt a peak in my masturbation and then I go to the toilet to pee. so for the past 6 years or so I've been doing that. Has my vagina been trained to hold onto my cum until I use the toilet? I'm a virgin so I'm scared to have my first time and me not cum/orgasm while I have sex.. so is it just my mind? my vagina getting adapted to not cum while I masturbate? or what??? (This is something that I just barely started to realize by the way!) or does my vagina only hold my orgasm when I masturbate and not when I get penetrated?? I wouldn't know about the second part because I'm a virgin but I'm hoping maybe I will orgasm or have a sort of peak my first time. But Can a vagina be trained -i guess in a way- to not cum while masturbating?? Can your vagina adapt to hold off an orgasm while masturbating?

There are alot of issues here that would be good to explore with a therapist  so that you can have a healthy view of sex.  

a couple friends told me that they enjoy putting hairbrush handles up their vagina a that it feels good . I tried doing it but now my left ovaries is giving pain and I'm not sexually active is this concerning or is it just hurting because i'm not sexually active

The prickly part of hairbrushes can be irritating to the vagina.  

If you are feeling continued pain please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health.
