  • what is this?

    hi,
    im having some problems.
    i get quite itchy down there at times
    and it doesn't seem normal. this has been re-occuring
    for a couple of months now and i don't know how to
    treat the problem. there is also some discharge, but mainly
    just discomfort in the area. any ideas as to what this could be?
    i am not sexually active so i don't see the problem.
    thanks

    • no i haven't i guess i'm trying to treat it before i see a doctor. i also feel that the area can get a little inflammed and bigger if that makes sense. anyone got any ideas on how to help it?

      • Don't treat for a yeast infection is you aren't sure that you have one. This can cause you more problems than the original one, it will also hamper the doc's diagnosis. Check out information on vulvodynia, lichen sclerosis and lichen planus. All three of these can cause the symptoms you are dealing with.

          Alison H. I agree with the question you raised! Does tent sex count!? The only time I had sex outside was on a camping trip (technically inside) a tent....

        • 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.
