If you are having pain, you need to be checked out by your doctor. Most of these problems can be taken care of without much difficulty, but you should be seen to establish a diagnosis. ...Read more

4yrs ago I operated a painful bump on the vulva. Since then it appears every summer on both lips, always removed with surgery. What can it be?

Path report: Since you have had surgery on this spot before the best thing to do it is to ask for a copy of the pathology report. The diagnosis will be listed. If there is no pathology report then ask the surgeon what the diagnosis was. This is the most accurate way to determine the cause. ...Read more

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

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

I'm 18 & gave birth 4 months ago. The other night i noticed my vagina lips (the inner ones...Vulva?) are bigger, like they're swollen. Why?

Birth changes things: If you don't have any pain, itching, lesions or sores, and no abnormal discharge or worry if stds, then it's likely that your body has simply changed after childbirth. 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
