It's probably an infection. But, don't worry or be embarrassed. Lot's of girls get infections "down there". the best thing to do is go see your Doctor. You don't want to ignore because it could get worse. Good luck!

Hi. Well just over a week ago i had my period. And i noticed that it smelt a little more than usual, doesn t normally really smell at all.. Anyway, since i ve finished my period, my vagina has had a different smell to it. It is not very pleasant and it never used to smell... What could be the cause of this? I have been drinking more alcohol than usual if that means anything but other than that my diet hasn t really changed. Could it be something to do with my new sexual partner? Could his penis make me smell this way?

Okay so about a week and a half ago, I noticed a cut right in the crease of my,vagina where,my,lips start to meet.. And it stings to touch it, it itches like crazy and doesn t want to heal. I have applied antibiotic ointment, a&d ointment and even,tried my daughters diaper rash cream.. Nothing seems to,work. I have tried going without,underwear to help air get to it.. And it still doesn t seem,to be healing... Should I be,concerned with a std or is it just hard,to heal where it s in a moist area?
