Vagina talk

Before we talk about the big changes girls go through in puberty, let’s learn about vaginas.


You have reproductive or sex organs on the inside and the outside of your body, which will allow you to reproduce (have babies) one day.


Because it’s sometimes difficult or embarrassing to talk about sexual things, people may use different names to refer to sex organs.


Vagina:

This is the opening between a female’s legs. It’s surrounded by folds of skin that look kind of like sideways lips. These are called labia. The vagina is the passage that menstrual blood comes out of, and it is where a man puts his penis during sex. It is the passageway through which a baby is born.


Vulva:

The parts of the female sexual organs that are on the outside of the body. This includes the labia.


Cervix:

This is a ring of muscle at the end of the vagina, sort of like a ‘doorway’ into the uterus.


Uterus:

Also called the womb, the uterus is where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant.


Ovaries:

These produce a female’s eggs. If an egg is fertilized (meets) by a sperm, a pregnancy can result. Ovaries also make the female hormones (chemical messengers) oestrogen and progesterone.


Fallopian Tubes:

Two tubes leading from the ovaries of females into the uterus. The ovum (egg) travels down the fallopian tube where it can be fertilized (meet the sperm).


What is the creamy coloured liquid you sometimes find staining your panties?

This is called a vaginal discharge. It’s the body’s way of keeping the vagina healthy and clean. 
The discharge carries out old pieces from the vaginal wall (lining). Sometimes the discharge gets thicker. But do not put anything into your vagina to stop this discharge! See a nurse or doctor if it smells bad.

Hello,

Please clarify your question. Do you mean you get a lot of discharge?

B-Wise Expert Expert 28 May 2020 13:11

Hello,

The best thing to do right now is to wait for the results. If the doctor checked you for pregnancy and you are not pregnant then you don't have to worry.

Once your results are out, the doctor will explain to you what is happening

I have bumps on my vagina but I don't think it's an STI it's been over 5 years since I've had sex. When I pop them things come out but it doesn't smell, and some of the bumps have hair coming out of them.

B-Wise Expert Expert 26 May 2020 09:45

Hello,

It sounds like you have ingrown hair. This is when the hair grows down instead of up. It usually goes away on its own but if it doesn't, go to the clinic or doctor

Is it normal for your labia to be different sizes?

B-Wise Expert Expert 26 May 2020 09:44

Hello,

Yes it is very normal

When your hyman breaks is blood suppose to come out?

B-Wise Expert Expert 26 May 2020 09:44

Hello,

Some people don't bleed when their hymen breaks so it's normal if there is no blood.

Hey I wanna knw what causes the part of a dry vigina during sex ,im pregnant

B-Wise Expert Expert 20 April 2020 12:23

Hi there,

Your hormones are changing because you are pregnant so I would advise you to get you partner to play around with you more before sex. You can also use lube.

How to keep it clean

B-Wise Expert Expert 5 July 2018 18:33

Hi anonymous, keep what clean?



B-Wise User Anonymous 20 June 2018 20:54

I need help course I don't like going to the clinic. My vagina itches a lot especially after having sex, I want to know is it the infection or his penis is big for me or maybe it can be the condom??

B-Wise Expert Expert 21 June 2018 10:59

Hi there thank you for your question. It is possible that your vagina is itchy after sex because of the sweat and discharge. It is important for you and your partner to shower after you have sex. This helps you keep your vagina clean and the itchiness should stop. If you still have itchiness, its best that you visit a doctor that you are comfortable visiting.

Hi...is it normal to have no sensations around nipples andlips during sex ( im a female, 22 years old, no child) because when my boyfriend is kisses me i dnt feel anything

B-Wise Expert Expert 11 September 2017 14:07

Hi Anonymous, that’s a good question! Sexual arousal differs from person to person. Different people find different types of sensual touching arousing. If you don’t get aroused by kissing on the lips and nipples, ask your boyfriend to kiss you in other places on your body. This way you will discover the right areas for you, and ensure that you get the most pleasure out of your time together.

Hi.everytime i try to have sex i dnt feel anything..i dnt get aroused and if i do manage to get aroused it doesnt last long enough for me to enjoy sex...please help

B-Wise Expert Expert 20 April 2018 10:38

Hi, thats a good question! If you mean you dont feel any emotions during sex, it might be because you dont have feelings for the person youre with, or there might be a reason that your mind tries to cut off from feelings (like a bad experience in your past, or a fear of something). To figure out what it is, it might help to speak to someone like a counsellor or a psychologist.

If you mean you dont feel anything in your body or any pleasure during sex, it could mean that you need to see a doctor or a nurse at your clinic to check if anything is wrong. If you have a partner you trust and feel safe with, you can also try different ways of having sex (e.g. oral sex) to see if you feel anything. Remember to use a condom every time you have sex

B-Wise Expert Expert 9 April 2018 13:49

Hi, thank you for your question. It is normal to feel pain during sex if it is your first time, but if you feel the sharp pain every time that you have sex it would be best for you to visit your local clinic and tell a nurse or a doctor about the pain. They will check you up and give you the right treatment.

My frendz are pulling the lips saying it is ideal for pleasurable intercourse for both parties.(guys n ladies) is it true??

B-Wise Expert Expert 31 October 2016 14:00

Hi Anonymous, This is a tough question. Sex and sexuality is different for different people. Some people find certain things pleasurable that others do not. It is important to talk to your partner about what you both find pleasurable and are comfortable with. It is also a good idea to make sure you use dual protection (condoms and a contraceptive method.) It is also more enjoyable when you aren't worrying about STIs or pregnancy.

Hi Anonymous, thanks for your question. It can be hard when you arent sure what is happening with your body. Lumps, swelling or sores on your vagina are sometimes a sign of a sexually transmitted infection (STI). If you are sexually active, you and your partner should go to the clinic to be treated. STIs are spread by having unprotected sex, so it is important that you and your partner use a condom every time you have sex. If you are not sexually active, it is still a good idea to go to the clinic to see a doctor or nurse so they help you feel better.
