There will always be those feminine questions that you will be too embarrassed to ask your friends. And even more embarrassing if you would have to ask your gynecologist, who is practically a stranger. Here are some vagina questions and answers from gynecologists that you might find enlightening.
1. Is It Normal To Feel Aroused When I Pee?
Women all over the world get aroused by many different things, so it isn’t really about being normal or abnormal. There’s no harm in getting aroused whenever you pee, so you don’t have to worry about it. If it bothers you though, or if you feel a burning sensation, consult your doctor.
2. Why Do I Have Smelly, White Discharge?
Experts say that this is one of the most common vagina complaints and questions. White discharge is not really a cause for any serious concern. There’s a specific quantity of discharge that is normal for women, that’s hormonal, and it also alters across the cycle.
If it’s accompanied by odor, then that could be a sign for a bacterial infection to a sexually transmitted disease. It would be best to consult your doctor in order to exclude more serious issues.
3. Why Do I Get My Period Twice In A Month?
For obvious reasons, women would not want to get their period more than once a month. The average menstrual cycle of women ranges from 25 to 35 days. If you are getting your period in less time than the average, then a hormonal issue could be the reason, such as hypothyroidism.
Another reason could be is that you are not ovulating. Schedule a visit with your doctor so you can be checked and evaluated. Your symptoms will be discussed first and then a physical exam will follow to ensure that everything is fine.
Just for You . . .
4. How Can My Vagina Avoid Farting During Yoga?
Such so called vagina farting is more commonly called queefing. What actually happens is that air gets trapped in your vagina and that air is released when you move around. Your pelvic floor muscles and abdominal muscles contract to expel the air out.
Your best option is to not let any air get in. Use a tampon to block your vagina. This way, there will be no way for the air to get in or get out. Now you can focus on practicing your yoga poses without having to worry about your vagina farting.
5. How Can I Prevent Acne from Developing In My Pubic Area?
Those tiny bumps are not really acne. They are infections from your hair-removal treatments, such as a razor burn. Try to rest your razor for a while. If you need a clean bikini area for a vacation, try waxing or laser as an alternative.
If those tiny bumps still don’t disappear after resting your razor, then it would be best to consult your doctor to make sure that those are not rashes or any other type of infection.
6. Why Is One Of My Labia Lips Hanging Lower Than The Other?
It’s actually normal. Most women’s labia minora are asymmetrical. One lip does hang lower than the other. If it doesn’t really bother you then just leave it be and don’t worry about it. But if it bothers you, you can try to get a procedure called labiaplasty. It will correct the asymmetry.
Around 37% of patients who opted for this procedure did so for aesthetic reasons, according to a research that was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
7. Why Does My Vagina Get Extremely Itchy Before I get My Period?
Hormonal changes happen all throughout your cycle which can cause lower levels of estrogen before you get your period. Because of this, a possible thinning of vaginal skin can develop. Such thinning can make your vagina more dry, irritated, and possibly itchy.
Extreme itching in your vagina is another matter though. If the itching has become very uncomfortable or unbearable, it would be best to consult a doctor. There could be a skin infection that’s causing the irritation or itching.
