I'm a 17 year old female, I've been having weird things going on with no explanation. The outer part of my vagina feels irritated, with slight itching, and at times a little sore, without having sexual intercourse. After sexual intercourse it itches and has a moderate burning sensation that lasts for a few days. My discharge also changes, at times I think its normal but sometimes it seems too white and thick, and sometimes too watery. I don't know if its normal for a woman to constantly have secretions, but I have to always wear panty-liners, or put toilet paper in my underwear because of the constant wetness. I also have pelvic pain, or lower abdominal pain (specifically near the ovaries) almost everyday. I have had 3 ultrasounds done, and have been tested for gonnorhea/chlamydia, candidas, bacterial vaginosis, etc. 4 times, every few months. No one can find out whats going on. Does anyone have ANY ideas of what could be going on? or what I should do.. or what to ask my doctor?? I'm clueless.

Also I'm not pregnant, and rarely have sex.
Have Never douched.

PLEASE ANY IMPUT WILL HELP!!

  • Hi,Vaginal secretions can change throughout the month. About the middle of the month the secretions can become more like egg white as you near the time you ovulate. Other times it can be very thick.I had problems like this for years..I had a cervical erosion and that caused a lot of itching because of the increased secretions. I would also cut back on sugar. I am pretty certain that hormone levels can make you prone to itching just before a period and for some days afterwards. What you experience is similar to what I have had for years...almost like a sensitivity to intercourse so I would be looking at an allergy to condoms and also soap, washing powders etc.I would also ask your G.P. about pelvic inflammatory disease and ask him if this has been rule out. I believe that a lot of women have cysts on their ovaries which can enlarge and then grow smaller without the need to be treated. I have to say you shouldn't be getting pain like this as you are quite young. I hope this helps a little.

  • the secretions are normal, every woman is different. It could be a latx allergy...also, if you are on birth control, it can increase vaginal secretions and you could also be allergic to progesterone (a hormone in the pill).

  • I Am 36 And Have A Sensative Vaginal Area As Well. Every Woman Is Indeed Different And We All React To Things Differently. One Of The Big Things I Have Found Is Fabric Softener!!!! I Can Only Use Bounty, Period!!!! Anything Else Makes Me Very Irritated. Of Course, Bounty May Be The Opposite For You. I Wonder If You Are Ever Itchy Other Places?? Just A Suggestion Anyway. Good Luck!

  • Are you using a condom? If so, you may have a latex allergy, but that doesn't explain the pain in your ovaries. Try 3 acupuncture treatments and see if it goes away.

  • Sounds like chlamydia. Maybe you could get checked at a different clinic and ask for a different type of test. Or...tell the doctor, "My boyfriend just told me he has chlamydia"...they will give you the meds and then you can see if you get better--don't have sex with that same guy until he is treated, too. Some times, I don't think the tests are 100% accurate and if you know you have something, you have something.

  • You should take positive action and quickly. Not all medical practitioners are experienced in STD testing. It is always best to attend a special genito-urinary clinic with an onsite pathology laboratory.

  • Something you might want to investigate:Vulvodynia, also known as vulvar dysesthesia, literally means pain, or an unpleasant altered sensation, in the vulva. It is characterized by itching, burning, stinging or stabbing in the area around the opening of the vagina. Pain can be unprovoked, varying from constant to intermittent, or occur only on provocation such as attempted vaginal penetration with sexual intercourse, a condition also known as vestibulodynia, previously known as vulvar vestibulitis syndrome. http://www.vulvodynia.com/

  • It sounds like Trycamonis (sp???) or it could be something to do with the vulva~ that is the outter area of your vagina, I have the same reactions after sex and it's just your body reaction to a "foreign substance". I don't know what the exact term is used for the vulva diagnosis but most doctors don't diagnose it they just seem baffled and say it's all in your head. Do you have any piercings in that area that could be irratating the area? I've had to remove my piercings because of that. Good Luck~ I know it sucks being in pain daily!!!

  • Did you get a blood test for herpes? You didn't say you have external sores, but maybe some are internal. What about the guy going in and getting checked for STDs?

You could have a virus; get a pap and tested for hpv, and you can't rule out herpes 2 until you have blood for for it.

  • You could have a virus; get a pap and tested for hpv, and you can't rule out herpes 2 until you have blood for for it.My daughter had these symptoms, along with urinary symptoms. She kept thinking she had a kidney stone d/t severe pain in her pelvis and back. Intercourse was so painful that she could not participate in it with her fiance. ER docs kept testing for STD's, with one going as far as to tell her to keep her legs together and she wouldn't be sick. He was forced by the hospital to apologize to her after the STD tests were negative (again) She was also diagnosed with Pelvic inflammatory disease, which was not the correct diagnosis. It took 3 years, but a genito-urinary specialist finally diagnosed her with vulvadynia, brought on by interstitial cystitis. This is a bladder disease. You can read about it at ichelp.com to see if your symptoms are similar.

  • The symptoms of sexually transmitted vary depending on the type of STD. However, the most common types of symptoms are soreness, unusual sores or lumps, pain when urinating, itching, and atypical discharge from the genitals. Someone could have an STD and have no symptoms for months or even years, but still be infectious.

  • Interstitial Cystitus? I have same symptops but dr says it is IC. I am having my doubts too and ended up on this diagnosis same as you. I noticed that this post is 4 years old and was hoping you may have finally figured out what you had.
