Your vagina has an ability to clean or heal itself, but when the bacteria is too much, your lady flower can tell you that there is something wrong down there. Your vagina can also tell you that it can no longer defend itself from harmful bacteria by giving you signs like itch, bad smell, and other unusual discharges. It might sound scary, but there are remedies to treat the problem by knowing the signs and symptoms and by consulting your doctor.
An unhealthy vagina can also affect your sexual relationship with your partner or your self-esteem in bed. So for you to have a healthy sex life and being, you need to start treating your lady flower as your best friend by taking care of it and listening to what it tells you.
So here are the signs that there is something wrong with your vagina.
#1. Your flower is too dry to try.
If your vagina is having a hard time to lubricate itself or to get wet easily during a sexual intercourse, you might be suffering from vaginal dryness. Women who are in the menopausal stage can usually experience this dryness. The dryness can also be associated with a number of factors, including breastfeeding or taking oral contraceptives, prolonged use of tampons, and taking an allergy medication.
#2. Smelly vajayjay.
When your partner can smell your vagina while he is still on your stomach, you’ve got to do something about it. You need to take note, however, that women have different vaginal odors so it is normal to have an odor down there; what isn’t normal is if the smell worsens. A stench down there is due to lack of good personal hygiene, it is also a sign of infection, or worse there is a forgotten object inside, such as a tampon.
#3. There's a bump in a hump.
When you touch your vagina and you feel like there is a lump or often looks like pimples in the vulva, your skin might be irritated from something like ingrown hairs or due to constantly using a razor. However, if the lump is like a bug bite around your vagina and it’s plenty, and your down there feels itchy with burning sensation, you might have a sexually transmitted disease (STD). It’s best if you visit your doctor right away.
#4. An itchy vagina that you can't resist.
An itchy vagina can indicate several problems, including having a sexually transmitted infection (STI), vaginal dryness, and infections, among others.
#5 A discharge that looks like a cottage-cheese.
If your vagina feels itchy, has a burning sensation when you pee, is painful when you have sex, and has a thick, clumpy, white discharge that looks a little like a cottage cheese, it means you have a yeast infection. A yeast infection is due to a fungus that normally lives in your lady flower. Too many of it inside your vagina can cause a yeast infection.
A yeast infection can be treated with medication or anti-fungal cream.
#6. Your down there has a wart.
If you feel or see that your vagina has a wart, it is a sure sign that you have a Human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection. If you have warts on your vagina, better visit your doctor immediately.
#7. You experience pelvic pain.
When your pelvis is too painful and there is also pain when having sexual intercourse, vomiting and fever, among others, you may have a pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
