    It is very hard to suggest the cause of a clitoris being deep-shade-of-purple without a pelvic physical examination. But a second home pregnancy test is needed, by all means. However, what you see is probably a normal condition of a clitoris being aroused (congested, with increased blood flow in it, which makes it look like wine-to-purple colored, similar to men’s erection). This condition could also be caused by a chronic yeast infection or by persistent irritation of the vulva, Lichen simplex chronicus or Lichen sclerosus. These should be referred to and treated by a gynecologist.


    Irritants that sometimes lead to Lichen simplex include detergents, soaps, lotions, deodorant pads, douches, perfumed toilet paper, as well as certain contraceptives and synthetic fabrics. If a woman's body is sensitive to these products, chronic irritation could develop. In rare cases, a color change of the vulva could indicate a more serious disease due to a sexual hormone imbalance. Moreover, the extremely rare haemangioma could only be a theoretical possibility.

    crazy

    to share..i once a while ago used to get the whitish stuff that could be washed off or wiped off too. Its just from vaginal secretions. but if its milky and not cottage cheese looking you are ok.

    I cannot tell how how much acidophilus is great for your body. Try taking that in small doses with meals its the natural healthy flora for your body. or eat more yogurt.. see if that helps

    as for the color.. i dunno.

    at least it doesn't hurt. Don't panic try the acidophilus for a week. usually the first day i take one and its been a while i will feel kinda itchy down there. that goes away and it its a cure for everything including digestion. we need it anway can't hurt.

    but yeah after a week check the docotor

  • Reply to Underwear or not?

    I do — but I'm so prone to UTIs (thanks, menopause!) that I'm afraid not to. I USED to skip underwear years ago, but it's been a LONG time.
