My gf was beaten. She has two broken ribs, bruised, swollen vagina, dislocated jaw. She has pain in her abdomen and it feels hard. What can she do?
Exam, police report: Hi. It sounds like it may have been a beating and sexual assault as well. She needs to be examined in a safe and nurturing environment, and a police report needs top be filed to hopefully catch the person who did this. Planned parenthood is excellent, and any ER is equipped to deal with assaults and police reports. I'm glad she's alive. I hope she can recover from the emotional trauma as well. ...Read more

My friend had sex with her boyfriend about 2 days ago and found strange bruise-like discolorations on the outside of her vagina, what could it be?
Impact: Active / "rough" sexual intercourse can do this, as can size discrepancies between partners (as in one 5'1" other 6'3"--not what you were thinking). Duration of 'activities' can also. As long as improves / resolves over next few days, should not be any problem. If persists / worsens, see gyn. ...Read more

I have a pain in between my stomach & vagina . It feels like a bruise when I move or press on it . Any help ?
At first it hurt when I walked .
Hard to say: Could be related to infection or inflammation of the few organs in that area - bladder seems most likely for that kind of pain, but could also be a sexually transmitted disease, or a bowel problem. Less likely would be appendicitis or an ovarian issue or pregnancy. If there is any concern about pregnancy at all you should have a home pregnancy test done. ...Read more

What should I do about the bruising? I have bruising where my vagina meets my inner thigh. I have had this bruising for 4 years. Ever since i got my period when i was 10
This : This question is confusing to me. "bruising" occurs when something traumatic injures the blood vessels under our skin, breaking them, and causing bleeding under the skin. That is what we see as a bruise. I am assuming you have a dark area there. If it is on both sides, it may be a skin pigmentation issue. If it is on one side, i would be concerned that it could be a skin lesion. I would ask that you have a gynecological or possibly a dermatological (skin doctor) evaluation to assess the area and be sure that it is normal for you. ...Read more

How to get rid of bumps in my vagina lips, they look like the bumps on your tongue. They keep itching and it hurts kind of like a bruise?
My vagina is swollen and dark purpleish like it's bruised, but not painful unless having sex. I've had a lot more "wetness" and higher sex drive.
Engorgement: the vaginal labia will become engorged with blood when sexually stimulated; however, discoloration after vigorous intercourse may be related to bruising from thrusting or position. The "wetness" is a good sign that you are highly sexually sensitive and the sex drive s hormonal. Please be safe with BC and condoms. ...Read more
