Why is my vagina irritated and now bleeding after sex? The opening to my vagina has been very irritated and itchy all week. No swelling or redness. It has been dry as well. I had sex this morning, it was sort of painful. And I immediately started bleeding
It sounds like you are dealing with a vaginal yeast or bacterial infection. Since your vagina is dry and irritated the tissue is inflammed and having sex can irritate the tissue further thus causing bleeding. I recommend you visit a doctor for evaluation and treatment. If that is not an option for you, you can try an over the counter yeast infection medication like Monistat or clotrimazole. If you do that and your symptoms do not improve then you definitely need to visit a doctor.
Good luck and happy new year. ...Read more

Probably not: Before puberty, an internal yeast infection is unlikely. Irritants are usually the cause. Make sure no bubble baths or excessive soap use during bathing. Make sure underwear washed in sensitive skin products. Drinking excessive juice can cause the urine to have too much acid and irritate that area. Sometimes pinworms can move to that area so check for rectal itching. Apply vaseline to help itching ...Read more
I just finished amoxicillin, now I have a yellow mucousy discharge from my vagina. No swelling, no redness, light itchiness. What could this be?
Yeast? Other?: The timing suggests a yeast infection.

Amoxicillin doesn't treat gonorrhea or trichomonas and is only partly effective against chlamydia, so STD testing is in order if you might be at risk (or any doubt about it). See your doctor soon. ...Read more
