Vaginal blockage - white mass
Posted on: 04/28/2009
I have a white thick substance in my vagina that is almost "blocking" the way to my womb. It's not just discharge(I have that too), it's really a thick white-transparent mass. I can't use tampons because this thick mass is in the way and it hurts whenever I try to push, which means it would also hurt if I would have sexual interference with someone. And if I'm not able to insert a tampon, how will I ever be able to have sexual interference with someone? I think I might have caused it myself; I was with one of my girlfriends and we did things we were not really supposed to do. Maybe it's got nothing to do with what happened when I was with my friend, but I just got a feeling it's connected to that. (We took a pen and inserted it into my vagina but it got stuck someway, and we were not able to get it out again. I pulled pretty hard and when it finally got out of my vagina, I saw that the pen had a little white, transparent tissue and I started bleeding a little and after that my 'blood' started having a brownish color. I had never had my period before, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't my period. It's been a few years now since that happened (I'm 16 now) and I'm still not able to use tampons. I'm extremely worried, but I've never been to a doctor before and I've never talked to anyone about it. I don't even think my friend remembers what happened, but it's really difficult for me to just forget about it. I just want to be able to use tampons and to have children one day. Is that white transparent mass that is basically "blocking" the way normal, am I overreacting or isn't it normal? Do some women have this white mass too? Can you please help me? It's a very embarrassing subject for me to talk about. Thank you.
The only way for you to know for sure is to have a vaginal exam with your doctor. She can do an exam, help you hold a mirror and assure you that everything is normal, or talk about ways to "fix" anything odd. Please do not worry, and there is likely no need to tell her about the pen incident - chances are good that it had nothing to do with this.
