Womens Vagina Lips
Probably not, but...: Your current sex practice is much like positioning your hairs next to fire, which may lead to accidental hair-burning. So, exercise a more adequate precaution against pregnancy than what you have taken, although the likelihood for sperms in semen to fertilize egg is extremely slim, almost next to zero. ...Read more

You need to be seen.: This sounds like an infected cyst, which needs drainage to get relief of the infection and pain. It has nothing to do with cleanliness or diseases---just bad luck! Go to an ObGyn or FP or if you can't get in quickly you can go to an ED for some pain relief and a referral. Meanwhile, sit in very warm water; you can also use a hot water bottle, wear a warm washcloth or a hand warmer to the area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a woman get pregnant if there was precum on the lips of her vagina ? she had sex on the 7th day of her cycle. she has a 28 day cycle.
Unlikely, but...: Life can be full of surprises. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

I am a 27 year old female and I have a pink pea sized bump on the lip of my vagina and i was wondering what it could be it is a pink pea sized bump and there is only one I have experienced some pain with intercourse and there is a slight white discharge t
The : The skin of the vulva (the lips around the opening of the vagina) can get irritated and then the skin cells and or mucus can shed into that space rather than washing away and this then builds up into a "bump". These seborrheic keratoses are benign, firm, often non tender, and can be treated by a simple surgery in the clinic. If there is a discharge and blood then it is possible you have an infection of that skin. There are also glands that make mucus to lubricate the vulva and vagina which can get their duct blocked with trauma like bike riding, thong underwear, and intercourse, and these bartholin duct cysts can be quite painful and need again a simple surgery in the clinic. Rarely a bump can be cancer so anything that does not get better with time, warm soaks, and loose clothing should warrant a medical examination. ...Read more
I have a dime size lump on the inside of my vagina lip and the last couple of months it has become sore to the touch. I am a 54 yr old woman and have not had a pap test in 5 years, should I be overly concerned?
The : The lump sounds like a cyst that may have become infected. You need your doctor to examine you and decide what you are actually dealing with and what treatment or diagnostc plan is necessary. At the minimum you may need antibiotics, on the other hand you may need it removed and sent for biopsy. Lastly please get a pap smear. This is a very effective screening tool to rule out cervical cancer. I imagine you also need a mammogram. Take good care. ...Read more
