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.

  • I suggest you see another doctor, and to avoid any future concerns use condoms.

  • I am certainly not a doctor, but I can tell you that when I was your age I experienced very similar itching, secretions etc. And I was a virgin. This kind of mild itching (it doesn't bother me 95% of the time) has generally continued until now (I am 27). I mean, the skin down there is sensitive and the area is wet alot and subject to rubbing from underwear and pads and the pH balance changes from time to time which can cause irritation. Its possible to have Urinary tract infections and yeast infections and still be a virgin. If you have been screened for std's then it is very very unlikely that you have one. And NEVER make yourself feel guilty about having had sex. Also, I can tell you, from someone who knows something about healthy female fertility... you are SUPPOSED to be having secretions that vary all through the month. At first (right after your period) it is usually just a little, if any...watery and light. It gets more thick and stringy around the time you ovulate and keeps changing until your period. The amount and kind of secretion varies from woman to woman and unless it is suddely very different or has a strange color or strange odor (but then again, what isn't strange) it is probably nothing to worry about. Finally, I would see into getting to the bottom of your abdominal pain. THis could be caused by something else entirely like a growth (which are generally benign, so don't freak) but need to be taken care of anyway. Or it could be just your body changing. Do tell a doctor exactly about your pain. Pain other than moderate menstrual cramps is not normal. But given that you have been screened for std's chances are almost nil that it is caused by an std. I hope this helps. Stay safe and stay well.

  • Did you get a pap and blood tests for herpes2/syphilis? It sounds like chlamydia but tests are coming back false negative. Discuss the possibility of false negative testing with your doctor.
