Scared abaout discharge and vaginal pain
Posted on: 01/16/2009
For a couple of days last week I had constant vaginal discharge, it was clear and normal but a lot. To the point that I had to change my undies constantly. Then suddenly, yesterday my vagina got really red and itchy. The itch is unbearable. I have not discharged anything out of the norm except once today when it was yellowish. I'm due for my period tomorrow so idk what to make of it. I've only had one sexual experience in my life with my boyfriend and he had protection on. And we didn't really have sex. We tried to but stopped because I got scared. He was a virgin too. I'm really scared and I know my mom wouldn't take me to the doctor.
Do not be scared, but you should have an exam if after your period ends you are still experiencing vaginal itching or pain. Your local Planned Parenthood is a place you can go alone, and it's either free or low-cost. Good luck!
