During a vaginal swabbing, is it typical for the q-tip to be circulated on each side of the vulva (within the lips)?

Possible: There is no definitive method for swabbing, and depending on what one is attempting to test for, may call for a more in depth specimen, thus the need for more "swabbing." For example, there may be more discharge or vaginal secretions, and the provider may want to get a better yield by swabbing more areas, etc. As far as a PAP smear, the specimen is obtained from the cervix often in 360 degrees. ...Read more

If you had a vaginal birth, your labia stretched to accommodate a baby and so they won't always look the same afterwards. ...Read more

Can masturbation change how vulva looks? make lips and clit bigger and darker? i noticed that since i started. also can a doctor tell if i masturbate?

Here are some ...: Non-traumatic masturbation would change the size and color of external genital organs / structure. Instead, the process of maturation darkens its color due to heightened estrogen effect and enlarges its appearance which naturally stops after marking into adulthood. However, pregnancy will further darken its color and childbirth may slightly alter it appearance. More? Seek pro-counseling timely ... ...Read more

Can I become pregnant if semen touched my labia majora (outer lip)? Not inside vagina

Can I become pregnant if semen touched my labia majora (outer lip)? Not inside vagina

Absolutely: The devil is in the details! semen outside the vagina can cause pregnancy when the sperm travels inside. Introduction by a finger, penis, instrument (vibrator, etc) into the vagina with semen present can lead to pregnancy. It may be more difficult and low odds but it can happen. Practice safe sex and responsible sex. Those who play with fire usually get burned! ...Read more
