WTF is this on my Labia?! [Pic]

Recommended Posts

effmylife

I just want to preface my inquiry with this warning: After typing in various descriptions of what I saw on my labia in search engines, I found no photos to help assess this problem. I've combed through the forum for possible similarities written in the post's descriptions, but I haven't found anything that I felt were similar to what I'm seeing.

I snapped this photo of my labia and providing a link of it for various reasons: 1) to avoid describing what I'm seeing incorrectly; 2) to help any young lad sitting with these things between her legs and not seeing a photo to compare it to. It's the very reason why I'm here! If I am breaching forum rules, I truly apologize. I am not trying to be vulgar. I am seeking your expertise by providing as much information as possible. angel.gif

(NSFW: http://tinyurl.com/29pfsuz ; original photo link was too long. had to shorten it to post it.)

I'm 26 and sexually inactive for over 2 years. I've had 3 partners my entire sexual history (boyfriends, no one-nighters) and I'm baffled at what these things are on my labia. Everything down there outside of these things have been normal. Nothing burns, no irritation, no dryness, etc. Truth be told, I don't really go gallivanting down that area, so I really have no clue if this is just apart of my anatomy.

So what say you, forum? Is this normal or do I have something to worry about?

Unfortunately, it is very hard to tell you anything from a photo. First of all, most of us here are probably not trained diagnosticians. Besides, visual examination is the LEAST RELIABLE means of diagnosing herpes -- yielding about 20% incorrect results.

Problem is, herpes is a bit of a chameleon. It can look like a number of other conditions, and vice versa.

The only good way to figure this out is to be seen by a doctor, and get proper laboratory tests done to determine if you might have herpes or some other condition, or if those are just naturally occurring parts of your normal anatomy.

Are you having any other symptoms?

Going to the doctor would be the best thing for you. When i had my first outbreak, the doctor i saw had no idea what it was by just looking at it. It would be nice if it were that easy to identify, but sadly it's not. :(

Thanks, guys. I have no symptoms at all. I feel normal. :dontknow: I'm definitely heading to a GYN, but I thought I could ease my curiosity by bouncing ideas off of you guys.

I appreciate the help!

Well, sorry if we couldn't help put your mind more at ease. I have a feeling you are not dealing with herpes, but it will certainly be a good thing for you to find out what it is. Hope your gyno is able to help you figure it out.

Not sure what it could be but I'm hoping everything is ok and it can will clear up. Let us know what the docs say.

oh, wow. i have almost exactly the same thing going on down there! the first time i noticed it was when i had other symptoms and suspected herpes, but to be honest that was the first time i looked close enough to notice, since i was so concerned about everything else. i too was not sure if they had been there before.

the good news is that after being examined by 2 or 3 different doctors none of them seemed concerned with it (i think they attributed it to natural variations in everyone's physical appearance). and i tested neg for hsv 1 & 2 (IGG) at about two months, no symptoms since september, etc. anyway, i hope that helps put you at ease a bit, i guess it can't hurt to have the doc check it out if you're really curious.

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
