For the past six months, I have been experiencing intense itching and burning “down there”…

Hey girl! If there is an itching or burning sensation, or
white, chunky discharge, then it looks like you might. Fortunately, it’s easy
to fix with the right meds. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to tell your
mom, so you can go to the doctors. Take a deep breath, and tell her how you’ve
been feeling down there. She wants you to be healthy, too!

Okay, So I think I have a Yeast Infection and I told my Mom about it so she's gonna make me an appointment today with the Gyneocologist. Well this will be my first time going and I'm really scared and Nervous! What are they gonna do? Please Help! Thanks. (:

Hey babe, every girl has those appointments, so don't sweat it. Just tell the doctor if anything he or she does makes you uncomfortable, and they should respect that and stop it. They're just gonna check you out down there, which is awkward but no big deal. There shouldn't be anything that hurts or makes you super uncomfortable.

This happened to me like a year ago and I didn't do anything about it and now it's all gone, except for a white-ish discharge that's there constantly...Is there something wrong with me and should I get it checked out now?

by cartwheler18 on 9/25/2011 5:01:06 PM


I'm pretty sure I have a yeast infection because I have this bump down there but my mom says it's an ingrown hair. And it itches and burns sometimes down there. But my mom won't take me to my gyno. HELP?

Hey babe,

If it's an itchy, irritated bump on the outside, mom is probably right on this one - it's either a pimple or an ingrown hair so you should just let it be without touching too much. If it burns or itches inside down there, that's when you have to worry about yeast infections.

mod mod mod....
so as awkward as this may be... for the past 3 months i have had a very heavy discharge. I t is white and when i wipe it's sticky. It smells really bad and is very smelly so that sometimes when i get up you can smell it. I do not have my period, but it does get itchy down there every now and then, but probably only once everyday. Its not intense, just itchy. I've brought it up and my mom says that its no big deal and i'm overreacting, but i'm still not sure. any ideas?

MOD MOD MOD i have yellow discharge and itching, and wen i told my mom she sed i probly hav a yeast infection and shes taking me to the doctor. but ive nvr gotten my 1st period, so is it possible to hav a yeast infection, also if i do hav one, does that mean the doctor is going to look down there and give me a pelvic exam, and if so, do pelvic exams hurt??? plzz reply quickly, thank u



Hey girl. If you do get a pelvic exam it shouldn't hurt, but it is more likely the doc will diagnose you based on symptoms. Yes, you could have a yeast infection before you get your period. Good luck!

Hey chica!  You can always ask your doc, but I'm pretty sure that's normal. Everyone's hair is diff obviously, and some people have some on their face or stomach or... other places!  I don't think there's anything wrong with shaving, but you need to remember two things - for one, it's a sensitive area, so you want to use products that work for sensitive skin (like the ones designed for shaving your bikini line).  Also, with shaving the hair grows back pretty quickly, so you'll have to do so regularly.  Waxing, or just leaving it as it is, may be a better bet.  xoxo

Okay ,, so this sounds really weird and gross but i have hair in my butt.. is that normal ? And is it okay to shave it ?

by lilgymnast11 on 7/22/2011 3:39:46 PM


MOD MOD MOD I have this itching down there sometimes its even really intense. I also have white discharge. I have no discharge on my period but the itching i have it when im on my period or when im not on my period. Whats going on??

Hey girl,

The itching could just be irritation because of your underwear or something simple like that. But to be sure, check to see if there is a fishy odor or a colored discharge (anything but clear and white/off-white) accompanying it. If the itch sticks around or comes with either of these things, it's best to call your doc and make an appointment just to make sure it isn't a yeast infection!

For the past three days clear to white discharge has is left on my undies making them wet. "Down there" there is white-ish discharge. It's been a week and a half since my period ended and i started seeing this discharge problem three days ago. There isn't any itching just the ocasional iratation.

Hey girl,

If you got your first period less than a year ago, it can be a little abnormal and you can get discharge at times other than right before your period.

fruitlover787 is saying if her stomach hurts, wants to keep eating, and there is color in her... poop. (# 2) hate to say that. And is asking if these are the signs of her period coming.

by gotta<3soccer on 6/30/2011 6:22:17 PM


Hey, down there itches most of the time, and when I I pee, it feels tingly, and a bit painful... could this be an infection? I`m kind of worried. And hadn`t had the guts to tell my mom about this problem yet. help me! thanks.

by gotta<3soccer on 6/30/2011 6:18:34 PM


MOD! MOD! MOD! i have a red lump down there and it itch's what should i do!!!

Hey girl,

You should go see your doctor just to make sure everything's ok, but if you shave down there, it could be an ingrown hair from shaving. x0x0

by vintagestyle on 6/30/2011 2:15:37 PM


Do we get more yeast infections as we get older? It seems like older people I know like my mom seems to talk about them more?  

Hey girl,

Yeast infections don't depend on how old you are, so don't worry about that. However, when you are older, you're usually doing more sexual activity than you were when you were younger, which can bring on the yeast infections. That's probably what's going on with your cousin. x0x0

MOD MOD MOD I once thought I and a yeast infection but a doctor confirmed that i didn't. But now there a little bumps down there that look like pimples and its really embarasing. They go away but some leave a scab. And I know for sure it's not an STD. Thanks!



Hey chica! If you shave down there, the bumps are most likely razor burn, which is totally normal and common. Otherwise, I'd talk to your doc one more time and let them know your symptoms!

MOD MOD MOD! What color is "normal" for discharge?
And what are the symptoms of a yeast infection- common and rare?

Hey chica,

Read this article for the usual characteristics of discharge. That article also has some deets on warning signs that aren't normal. And this page describes a lot about the signs of a yeast infection. Trust me - if you have a yeast infection, with itching/burning and a more chunky discharge, you'll probably know!

Hi um. Al my friends make fun of me cause i got my period ( they r all guy friends) and i get so embarassed and turn BRIGHT red. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
XD Brittany

Hey Brittany,

Just try to remind yourself that your period is normal. You getting your period is normal. You're going to be getting it every month for a long time! Hopefully, remembering these things will calm you down and make it a less embarrassing experience for ya. Every girl goes through it - it's not something they should single you out about, so it's not something you should feel awkward about either!

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD I NEED HELP!! I was wondering if you could wear a pad in the pool.... i have done in before, but only once, and nothing happened. but i wanted to know if it was a bad thing to do. Thank you

Hey girly,
It doesn't really do too much in terms of stopping the blood. I wouldn't recommend it. Try a tampon if you really want to stop the blood while in the pool.

MODMODMOD Hey just wondering, is it true that if you punch someone's boob then it doesn't grow for 28 days? I've heard rumors of it, but just wondering. Thanks! Smile


Hey chica, I've never heard that before lol. I don't think it's true though. Smile

Hey girls, mhmm sounds like something might be going on down there. I reccommend you tell a parent so they can scheldue you a doctor's appointment. The doctor will be able to solve everything! Smile

MODMODMOD I'm not sure what's wrong with me, if anything. 6 out of 7 days of the week my discharge clumps with my hair down there and hardens so i have to pick it out (it hurts) when it doesn't clump it's slimy with yellow tinge but I don't know if the discharge is yellow-ish or that once I finish 'going' I stand up and I feel like I'm leaking P.S. I don't have my period yet GRACIAS!


Hey chica, sorry no one has gotten to your question! I'm super busy trying to answer all you girls, so hit me up later with the same question a little later, and I'll be sure to get back to ya! Smile

I think i have a yeast infection too, but i also have theses bumps on the underside of my butt and they burn sometimes. i got my mom to buy this cream that helps relieve irritated and burning and itchy skin. ive only been using it for a couple days and its not really helping a whole lot. what do you think this is and should i schedule an appointment for my doctor???? thanks!

Hey girl,

These could be pimples, ingrown hairs, or just irritation from chafing/sitting down. Since the cream isn't working, stop using it. Personally, I probably would give my doc a call just to see if they have any idea what they could be from. The only way to get rid of them (aside from giving it time and them going away on their own) is to know the cause! A professional opinion can clear this up ASAP Smile

Skip the ice cream and make a chunky monkey shake. Blend 1 banana, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 cup of low-fat chocolate milk with 1 cup of ice for a protein-packed pick-me-up.
You see your crush in the halls and your friend seriously embarrasses you by yelling his name. What do you do?!
