Hard to say: Most likely the itching is is normal as you heal from the trauma and will resolve. If you used a condom or lubricant, itching may also be an allergic reaction. See your doctor if the itching worsens or is accompanied by discharge.

See your Doctor: There are a few different conditions in which the vulva skin becomes white in colour; some are serious, some are not. If the pale skin feels rough and feels different to the rest of your vulva skin, its less likely that the whiteness is due to just loss of pigment (called vitiligo). Its important to see your Dr & get it checked out. All the best!

Confusing, but clear: It is clear that you need to find a better way. First, if it is very sore, get an ointment from a doctor to prevent infection and heal. Then find a way to discuss your anger instead of hurting yourself. Perhaps you need a different therapist. This should be a way for you to realize that something has to change. Best wishes - it can get better.

I have a tender/painful lump on my right labia majora I noticed while showering that wasn't there previously?

Bartholin gland: It could be an inflammation of the Bartholin gland. If you are sexually active, then it is more likely. If the lesion does not subside in a day or so, it would be prudent to see your doctor. If you get fever, purulent discharge or bleeding from the lesion, you may wish to go to a hospital emergency room for treatment. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.
