Question: Hello Doctor,
Glad to have such utility and I hope you will be able to help. i am 26 years old. I have been masturbating a lot in the past few years but never had any sexual intercourse. I would like to check if my hymen is intact or not. Plus I would like to ask about the size of my inner lips. Are they too large?

I tried my best to take a good picture and I hope it will be good enough.

Thank you for your support doctor.

Brief Answer:
Hymen is little more deep placed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Hymen is little more deeply placed , so won't be seen in these photographs clearly.A two minutes clinical examination can help you know whether hymen is intact.

This image can help you understand.http://9artsmedia.com/sample/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/321.jpg

Your inner lips are properly sized.

Hope this helps.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

I thought the parts that are right near the opening is hymen. then what is that near the opening. Can't you give me an approximation please. Like a percentage

Is the white fluid in the picture or normal? I have it a lot!

Also is my vagina opening too wide or considered tight?

Thanks doctor

Brief Answer:
These things need clinical examination

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Hymen is not at the opening and is more midway situated.Mastrubation wont ruputer hymen unless something has been inserted in vagina.Even in virgin girls hymen may get ruptured in cases of high physical activity or activities like riding horse.So intact hymen is not as such sign of virginity.

Only clinical evaluation is ideal to know whether hymen is ruptured.Photos provided are not enough to make even preliminary comment.

Vaginal opening doesn't seem abnormally large in your case.

White discharge is abnormal , likely due to vaginitis, which can be treated with combination of antibiotics and antifungal.

Hope this helps.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

Brief Answer:
Leucorrhoea.

Detailed Answer:
Hello

When it is not due to infection, the discharge does not have any foul smell and does not cause irritation and itching. This is called as Leucorrhoea and is seen around ovulation, during sexual excitement and before menstruation. This discharge can be due to hormonal changes also.

If there are no symptoms associated with it then it won't be infection.

Your vagina is medium sized as compared to other girls.

Thank you Doctor.

I can see some yellow dots on the sides of the inner lips. just near my finger are these normal? or they could be infection. I just noticed them!

regarding the size of my vagina does this reflect how tight my opening is or they are not related? By medium are you referring to the outer parts or inner parts.

I have had horrible pains inserting a tampon. It also happens sometimes during sex. It doesn't happen every time, but it seems to be getting worse over the years. what could this be?

I am 29, 5'4", 123 lbs. I have had 3 major surgeries. First was for lazy eye when I was 2, then corrective jaw surgery at 15 or 16. Then at 23 I had an emergency c-section in childbirth. Throughout my adolescence, I had unexplained headaches and was prescribed random medications for them that I don't remember helping. I was diagnosed with gastreonitis as a young teenager and I've had problems with this my entire life. I was told I had acute scoliosis as a child. I used to get UTI's all the time. I've had vaginitis a few times. I have recently discovered that I have an ingroinal hernia. I've always bulged a little in that area every once in a while as far back as I can remember, but after childbirth it kept getting bigger and bigger and now is uncomfortable and is out most of the time unless I'm laying down.

Hi I want to know if I have herpes
I have been fingered by 3 guys, all whom i presume did not have herpes (but I can't be sure). I am currently with my boyfriend, and he has had no previous sexual partners. We have had genital to genital contact and both have no symptoms of herpes and it has been 8 months since I was fingered by somebody other than my boyfriend. I get occassional itching in my pubic area, having had a yeast infection before, in other instances where i have noticed itching i have applied a hydrozole cream and it has gone away with a day or 2.

In the past I ve had persistent bacterial/ yeast infectios but these symptoms seem different.

I am visiting my family in Iowa and I won t be home in Texas until June 5th. I went to urgent care for what turned out to be vaginitis not yeast, not bacteria. I am 65 and I haven t had any problems like this in 16 years. From my a urine sample the physician s assistant said the lab saw a little blood, a little sugar, and a lot of white blood cells. I take Methylphenidate 20 mg. and Citalopram 20 mg. I also take Crestor 10 mg. Do any of these meds effect the kidneys? I drank a glass of wine last Thursday. But I don t mix alcohol with these meds.
