Vaginal Discomfort

I've had yellow green-ish discharge for a few months now and I haven't consulted my physician because I feel awkward talking about it and also with the pandemic going on. I've read it can be an STI but I've never had intercourse, oral or otherwise, so it might be an infection of sorts. When I do consult my doctor, what would the procedure be like (questions, tests, etc.). Any input would be very much appreciated, thank you.

When you talk to your doctor explain that you are having unusual discharge for the past few months.  

Typically a vaginal self swab and a urine test can determine if there is an infection like yeast or bacterial vaginosis.  Neither of these are sexually transmitted.  

Contact your primary care provider for an appointment or call the Corner Health Center for a telelvisit.   

I am late for my period (which is unusual), I have a lot more discharge than normal, my right lower abdomen hurts to press and I've been waking up to cramps in my right lower abdomen (I'm not pregnant). What could this mean please?

What you describe sounds lke it could be an infection.  Please schedule an appointment with you primary care provider or at Corner health center. 

If you have continued vaginal bleeding, vag discharge or any discomfort please schedule an appointment with your PCP or at Corner Health Center.

I am on the depo shot & I had sex three days ago & I am having vaginal bleeding. Is this normal? This has never happened to me before

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've VPH and one big genital wart, I haven't treat them because I'm scheduled to do chryoterapy next month, I haven't had any discomfort from it, but yesterday I started feeling very itchy, what are the symptoms to a vaginal infection? Do they have something to do with the HPV?

Genital warts can be itchy.  Itching can also be a sign of vaginal infection.  Symptoms of vaginal infection can also include abnormal vaginal discharge, change in odor or texture of vaginal discharge. 

If you believe you may have an infection schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center. 

I've been feeling discomfort in one side of the inside of my vagina and it feels like a scratch of some sort. I checked it out and found this thick looking, yellowish (discharge?) stuff there and don't know if that's normal. It appears only on one side and not the other. I have no discharge but the yellowish thick looking discharge is stuck there.

It is difficult to understand what you are describing without more information.

If the issue continues please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center. 

i had sex and used protection but it hurts when i go pee . what is wrong with me ?

Pain with urination could be from irritation or infection. 

 If it continues to hurt please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center for further evaluation and testing

I am a 37 year old woman. For the past couple of years I have had a few months of irregular cycles. Every few months I would have two periods a month as if I'm skipping ovulation. This year, in April and May I had two periods in each month. In May I had a twelve day period. That was May 8th. It's now June 16th and I haven't had a period but experience light cramps daily. The doctor insists I am not going through perimenopause. What could be happening? I have gained weight and have hot spells often, especially at night. I feel nauseous daily. Please help me.

Sounds like what you are experiencing may be related to hormones.  Please schedule an appointment with a gynecologist or discuss further with your dr or another dr.  There may be blood tests that can also give you more information. 

I think I have a Bartholin's cyst.. It's not puss filled, and it's not horrible but I can feel the swelling on one side and it's uncomfortable. Will it go away? I feel uncomfortable about telling my mom..

Please tell your mom.  It  sounds like you have an abscess that needs medical attention immediately before it gets worse

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.
