I'm 16 (going to be 17 in December) and I have this horrible discomfort on the outside of my vagina. It's at the bottom of my vaginal opening. This has happened before, but it goes away within a few hours. This time however, it's come and gone for the last two days. I'm about to start my period, if that helps, but this discomfort comes out of nowhere.
My boyfriend and i have done some things, but if any started to hurt I would tell him to stop. I know it's wrong to do sexual things when you're 16, but hormones are hard to control.
This discomfort is like an itch. I've searched how to get rid of vaginal itching, but nothing comes up except Google saying, "You have herpes", or any other type of STD. I, being my age, have never had sex so I know I'm clean.
I do masterbate, but never "dry". Can anyone help me?
I'm too nervous to talk to my mom about it...
