Great question! Sorry to hear that you are having some discomfort. When our bodies don’t feel right or we are experiencing pain, it’s a normal to wonder what our bodies are trying to tell us. Unfortunately, discomfort in the vagina could mean a lot of different things. It could be a yeast infection, urinary tract infections (UTIs), or a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Or the discomfort might not have anything to do with an infection, but rather it could be due to the underwear you wear or a pulled muscle! Figuring out exactly what is causing your discomfort, should really be done with the help of your health care provider (HCP). Reach out to your HCP and set-up an appointment, it’s always best to be safe.
- Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
- Yeast Infections (Candidiasis)
- My vagina is really sore and uncomfortable, it hurts if I touch it and it is very itchy, and I have a discharge that smells a bit fishy, is it something to worry about??
- My boyfriend and I have tried to have sex many times, but every time he tries to insert his penis it really hurts. Recently, I tried touching the opening of my vagina with a finger, again I had really bad pain. We did get his penis in all the way one time, but it was painful. Please help!
