Is it ok to wash my vagina each time I pee? Using feminine wash only

External wash: As long as you are not washing your vagina internally, that is a totally safe thing to do. Any kind of internal wash or douching of the vagina is not healthy because it gets rid of the good bacteria in the vagina.

I shaved my vagina for the first time and now it hurts when I pee?

I shaved my vagina for the first time and now it hurts when I pee?

No wonder!: Your vagina is inside your body and has no hair. .. Of course it hurts. But. .. It you shaved your pubic hair, the difficulty peeing is probably an incidental bladder infection which quite likely had nothing to do with the shaving (unless you irritated your urethra with shaving cream).

Why does my vagina smell bad if I wash it & it smells very bad when I pee too. Help I'm 16?

Why does my vagina smell bad if I wash it & it smells very bad when I pee too. Help I'm 16?

Get tested: There are several causes of bad smelling vaginal discharge and testing is needed to determine the cause and treatment. The most likely is bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. It causes a watery discharge with a fishy odor. It is not sexually transmitted and your partner does not require treatment. It is treated with antibiotics. Using soap is fine.

Yeast vs UTI vs STD: White cottage cheesy discharge associated w/vaginal itch makes me think of a yeast infection. Scratching could lead to cut that might only be painful during urination. However, painful urination also suspicious for UTI or urinary tract infection as well as std or sexually transmitted disease (infection). So best to go see your family doc for diagnosis & treatment.

UTI?: I wonder if you are having referred pain from a bladder infection. Go see your Family Doc and pee in a cup. If there is infection there, then great -- take antibiotics for the UTI. If you're having vaginal discharge, itching, or odor; you may need to have a deeper exam to sort out your pain.

? Leukocytosis?: Leukocytosis is a white vaginal discharge that is normal. It is made up of dead sloughed cells, white blood cells & vaginal secretions. It should not have an odor or cause burning, itching or redness. It can become thicker with ovulation or pregnancy. If you have a malodorous or symptomatic discharge - please let your doctor know.

Vaginal bleeding: Sounds like the blood you are noticing is coming from the vagina. When a small amount of blood comes from the vagina sometimes a woman just notices it when wiping. There are several causes of spotting - hormones off, stress, a growth in the cervix or uterus, an infection in cervix or uterus. If it doesn't go away get checked.

The inside of my vagina hurts every time I pee. And I pee very often. I had sex on the 7th. We were both virgins. But why does it hurt when I pee?

I wonder if it is: The inside of your vagina or if it is your urethra that hurts when you urinate. You could have inflammation of the tissues or an infection. A urinalysis would help to identify if you do have an infection.

I used dettol liquid mixed with water to wash my vagina. Now it burns when I pee. How long does this last and what can I do?

Stop douching: This is terrible stuff to put in the vagina! It has irritated the tissues and probably is the cause of the urinary pain. It should clear up in a day or two, but see your doctor if it does not. You should never douche (vaginal wash) with anything; it is unhealthy and unnecessary for hygiene. If you have odor, discharge, or otherwise thinkg you have an infection, see your doctor, but never douche!
