My Vagina Hurts During My Period
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Unsure: The patches in your vagina and mouth don't sound like endometriosis. What do they look like? Are the patches themselves painful? Do you have any itching, discharge?

Why did it hurt very bad when she put speculum in vagina? I was on period so she couldn't really c anything
Varies: Vaginal, uterine, and pelvic pain are common during the menses. The cause can be as simple as muscle cramps due to the increased prostaglandin production during the cycle, or it could be the result of other conditions including infection, endometriosis, polyps, fibroids, and (less likely) cancer. ...Read more
Vaginal odor varies: Vag odor may vary with activity or even with diet. Citrus fruits may cause sweet smell or taste. Normal vag odor may be "musky". A fishy odor suggests a bacterial vaginosis. A foul odor may suggest the std trichomonas. Use of lubricants or birth control options can change the odor. Yeast infections may smell like bread, and often have a thick white discharge. The presence of blood changes the odor. ...Read more
Hormonal changes: Given the fact that your vaginal itching occurs at the same time every month, for a brief period, and before onset of your period, makes it likely that it is due to hormonal changes (progesterone withdrawal) that occurs just prior to menses (your period). If itching becomes bothersome, persistent, of with other symptoms, seek medical attention. ...Read more
Bacterial vaginosis?: The main cause of strong vaginal odor, sometimes with discharge, is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of bacteria. The STD trichomonas causes the same odor, and other STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) are more common in women with BV, but of course these depend on potential STD risks (new partner, partner with other partners, etc). Get care soon for diagnosis, treatment, maybe STD testing. Good luck! ...Read more

Why does it feel like I'm getting stabbed in my vagina while on my period? Only happens when I'm on my period, hurts sooo bad.
See a doctor: If truly vaginal pain, maybe tight hymen blocking blood flow. If the pain is actually in your pelvis or low abdominal area (feels deep inside), a condition called endometriosis comes to mind. See your doctor for sure. At age 16, you should discuss with parents. Doesn't sound like an STD, but in all states sexually active kids over 12-14 can be checked for possible STDs without parental consent. ...Read more
The entrance of my vagina always hurts before my period. Is this a normal thing? Is this my body's way of opening up for my period?
No: The entrance may hurt because your estrogen levels drop before your period and estrogen is the female hormone that keeps our vaginas moist, lubricated and healthy. Some women, as well, are more prone to yeast infections around this time as well. See your doctor if the pain is recurrent or bothers you significantly. ...Read more
