When cleaning your vagina, do you wash inside the labia minor where the urethra and vaginal opening are?

When cleaning your vagina, do you wash inside the labia minor where the urethra and vaginal opening are?

Not usually: You don't really need to clean the opening of the vagina. Cleaning the outside of the vagina, the vulva is helpful as there are sweat glands there that can produce sebaceous type material which can smell if not cleaned. The tissue by the urethra and the vagina are different and is more sensitive and could have pain or burning with soap. I recommend eo organics shower gel. Very gentle. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a lump/swelling inside my vagina directly below my urethra? It blocks entire vaginal opening its so swollen, and its painful.

Ouch: That sounds painful. The most common lesion like this in the vagina is going to be a Bartholin's gland cyst, if it's really big, then it could definitely extend up as high as you describe. I would see a doctor or clinic asap and they can drain this for you and relieve the pain that you are feeling. Regardless, an exam is warranted. Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more

Get checked.: It's likely that you have an uriary tract infection — not uncommon after intercourse. Get checked for this and for stds. It may help to urinate after having sex to flush out bacteria. And it's always a good idea to use condoms to protect yourselves from stds. Your doctor or planned parenthood can help. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more
