28 Embarrassing Questions and Answers About Womans Vgee You Must Know

Questions about the female vgee can be embarrassing, making it hard to bring them up with even close friends or partners. Doctors, however, have seen and heard it all. So we asked two of the best—Lauren Streicher, M.D., associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and author of “Love S3x Again,” and Hilda Hutcherson, M.D., clinical professor at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and author of “What Your Mother Never Told You About S3x”—to answer 10 of the most common vgee-related questions for you.

A group of Women became so inquisitive and began asking some very vital questions about their Vgee Canals and a group of professional female medical doctors gave some amazing answers.

28 Embarrassing Questions and Answers About Womans Vgee You Must Know

1. Do all vgees look the same?

"In short, no. All vulvas (the part you can see) as well as all vgees (the internal part you can’t see) have their own different appearance, shape and size. This will not only vary from person to person but will also vary depending on age, height, weight and experience during childbirth, to name but a few. There is no such thing as a ‘normal’ looking vgee."

2. What's the healthiest way to keep my vgee clean?

"You really don’t need to clean your vgee. When your vgee is healthy, it maintains itself and there isn’t any need to start using anything to wash internally. Washing around your vulva (the skin around the opening to your vgee) once a day is sufficient as part of your daily cleansing routine – twice, if you must. Don’t use soaps, shower gels, scented soaps or feminine sprays down there as this can disrupt the normal pH and bacterial balance which can trigger conditions like BV and thrush."

3. How Do I Prevent My Vgee from "Farting" During Yoga?

Rest assured this kind of “farting” (a.k.a. queefing) is totally unlike the other kind. In this scenario, air is getting trapped in your vgee (you can thank wacky poses for that), and releasing as you move around—you know, usually when the rest of the class is completely silent. That’s because your pelvic floor muscles and abdominal muscles contract to push the air out, says Holloway.

Your game plan: Don’t let the air in to begin with. “Wear a tampon to block the vgee so you can’t have any passage of air either in or out,” suggests Holloway. Then, you’re free to focus on your practice and not on strange noises coming from your nether regions.

4. How Do I Stop Getting Acne in My Pubic Area?

Those little bumps likely aren’t acne, but infections from your hair-removal methods, like razor burn, says Holloway. Consider taking a break from your razor for a while. If you’re prepping for a vacay and need to tame your bikini line, opt for waxing or lasering instead. If ditching the razor doesn’t clear it up, visit your gynecologist to make sure it’s not a rash or infection, says Holloway.

5. Does a healthy vgee have a smell?

"Yes, all vgees have a smell, and that smell will most likely be different from one person to the next. It's something that many women feel self-conscious about - but it's completely normal. It can become stronger depending on monthly hormonal changes, or how much you’re sweating, which is also completely normal, but if the smell changes significantly or is noticeably unpleasant then it is best to talk to your doctor or pharmacist to find out if there is a problem.

BV, for example, is a very common condition that often causes a fishy smell. It's caused by an imbalance in the naturally acidic pH in the vgee which results in an imbalance in the natural bacterial balance. This results in a growth of anaerobic bacteria which can cause the unpleasant odour. BV is in fact two times more common than thrush and, like thrush, it can be simply treated with an over the counter treatment."

6. Is It Normal to Feel Aroused When I Pee?

Think of anything and there’s someone in the world who’s turned on by it. Seriously. “There are a lot of things that different women are aroused by,” says Kate Holloway, M.D., an ob-gyn at the Institute for Women’s Health in San Antonio. “I wouldn’t say some things are normal or abnormal.” Bottom line: Getting a little giddy when you hit the seat isn’t going to do any harm, so no need to freak out. But if it bothers you, feels uncomfortable, or is accompanied by a burning sensation, see your doctor to talk it through, suggests Holloway.

7. Why Do I Have Smelly, White Discharge?

“This is a very common complaint and question,” says Holloway. Here’s what you need to know: White discharge on its own isn’t cause for concern. “There’s a certain amount of discharge that women have that’s normal, that’s hormonal, and changes throughout the cycle,” says Holloway. Paired with an odor, though? That’s when things get dicey. It could signal anything from a bacterial infection to a s3xually transmitted disease, says Holloway. Visit your gyno to help you rule out these more serious issues.

8. Why Does One of My Labia Lips Hang Lower Than the Other?

“It’s a totally normal thing,” says Holloway. The labia minora of most women are asymmetrical, with one lip hanging lower than the other. If it doesn’t bug you, then don’t worry about it. But if it does, you could explore a procedure called labiaplasty that’ll correct the asymmetry, says Holloway. About 37 percent of labiaplasty patients opt in for aesthetic reasons, one study published in the Journal of S3xual Medicine estimates.

9. Why Does My Vgee Itch Horribly Before I Get My Period?

Blame your lady hormones. “There are hormonal changes that occur throughout the cycle that can cause lower estrogen levels right before the period,” says Holloway. “That could lead to thinning of the vgeel skin, which can make it more dry, irritated, and potentially itchy.” Itching horribly is a different story, though. “Anything associated with hormonal changes shouldn’t be horrible,” says Holloway. If it’s next-level uncomfortable, get it checked out. A vgeel or skin infection could be to blame.

10. What is “normal” vgeel discharge?

It turns out there are different norms for different women, and what’s normal can also change depending on the time of the month. Right before ovulation, women tend to have a lot more secretions, which may be kind of stringy, like egg whites, according to Hutcherson. After ovulation but before the menstrual period starts, there may be less discharge but it might be a thicker vgeel discharge that lines your underwear.

“It freaks women out sometimes because they’re like, ‘Ah, I have a yeast infection!’ but they have no symptoms, no itching, no odors,” Hutcherson says. “They’ve just noticed that their secretions are thicker and whitish, and they get worried.”

It is, however, a good idea to keep an eye on what’s coming out of you. As long as it’s clear and mucus-y, Streicher says, there shouldn’t be anything to worry about. If you’re itchy down south or there’s a strong odor, make an appointment with your gynecologist to rule out an infection.

11. Can eating different foods change the way you taste?

That spicy Indian meal you ate last night set your mouth on fire. Will it eventually set your partner’s mouth on fire, too, after he goes down on you? Probably not, but Hutcherson notes that studies have shown certain foods, such as melon and pineapple, can cause you to taste sweeter. On the flip side, meat-heavy diets can change the taste of vgeel secretions to be “not so great,” she adds. And here’s a bummer: Alcohol, which for many is a way to lose our inhibitions in the sack, can also change the flavor of a vgee for the worse.

Streicher says there are occasionally reports of people who take vitamins that leave a metallic flavor in their vgeel secretions, but taste is basically dependent on the pH balance of the vgee. If the taste is “off,” then the pH is likely off.

12. Is douching once in a while really that bad?

Remember that junior high school gym teacher who lectured your s3x-ed class about the evils of douching? That’s because regular douching changes the pH balance of the vgee, which is usually acidic, and disrupts the balance of normal yeast and bacteria that live inside the vgee. Those disruptions can lead to yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.

Douching once in a while probably isn’t harmful, according to Hutcherson and Streicher, but both doctors caution that even one treatment can be problematic. “You can change the environment in your vgee and increase the risk of getting infection,” says Hutcherson.

If you’re douching because you’ve detected a less-than-pleasant odor, it will only help temporarily because the pH of the vgee is likely already off. “I tell people to do a course of RepHresh [an over-the-counter vgeel gel treatment] to normalize the pH and then you can get in and see your doctor to figure out what’s going on,” suggests Streicher.

13. Does the vgee get bigger or stretched out after childbirth?

Yes, things are going to stretch. But the muscles surrounding the vgee are built to expand and contract—think of it like an accordion—and the vgee does snap back. And in case you were curious, the average vgee is 3-4 inches long, according to Lissa Rankin, M.D., author of “What’s Up Down There? Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend,” but it can expand by an impressive 200 percent when s3xually aroused. In other words, your vgee is highly elastic.

Streicher says women are often concerned about losing sensation and functionality post-pregnancy, but that usually does not happen. Pregnant women can actually get those muscles in shape before the baby even comes. Hutcherson recommends practicing Kegel exercises—you know you’re doing it right when it feels like you’re holding in your urine flow—while they’re pregnant and immediately after giving birth.

“That way, you keep up the strength of the muscles that surround and support the vgee,” she says, “and you don’t get the sensation that the vgee has been stretched.”

14. What causes vgeel dryness?

There are lots of reasons behind vgeel dryness, and they’re almost all nothing to worry about. Dryness is a common complaint among menopausal women with lower estrogen levels. It also happens to women who are taking birth control pills or antihistamines that dry out mucus membranes all over your body, including your vgee.

Women who complain about dryness are usually referring to dryness during s3x, which can be painful, notes Hutcherson. Her suggestion? Spend more time in foreplay to become aroused, keeping in mind the longer you’re in a relationship, the longer it will take to prepare your body for s3x. And use a water-based lube liberally to reduce friction and discomfort.

15. Is it safe to skip your period using birth control pills back-to-back?

It might seem like intentionally skipping a period goes against some kind of law of nature. But it’s totally safe, according to both Hutcherson and Streicher, and much more common than you’d think. In fact, Streicher tells her patients on birth control pills that as they finish one pack, they should start another.

“There’s no medical reason to have your period,” she says. What’s more, the bleeding that happens when you’re on the Pill is actually not a natural period anyway—it’s a withdrawal bleed, meaning it’s simply the body’s reaction to not having the hormones it’s used to getting from the birth control pills during the other three weeks of the cycle.

16. Does it smell differently at different times of the month?

Some people douse themselves in perfume or cologne to attract a mate. It turns out that in a way, our bodies can do the job on their own. Hutcherson says studies have shown the vgee does smell sweeter or stronger right before ovulation. “Of course, this is the time you would want to attract someone, if you want to have a baby, right before ovulation,” she says. There’s also a change in scent during menstruation, due to the smell of menstrual blood hitting the air, and at other times of the month as the vgee’s pH changes.

17. Can things like tampons get lost up there?

Sort of, but not really. We’ll explain: Tampons, condoms, grapes (more on that in a minute) can get lost—or really, lost enough that it’s out of your reach and requires a professional to pull them out.

But don’t fret: “[The item] doesn’t leave the vgee—there’s a thought that it somehow travels up and will come out your mouth,” Streicher jokes. “Sometimes you can have something that gets lodged that isn’t easily retrievable, and a gynecologist can certainly do that.”

A good lesson to learn: Remember to remove what you’ve put in. Hutcherson sometimes sees patients who complain about a foul odor and discharge that can be bloody. In some cases, the odor and discharge is caused by patients who forgot to take out that last end-of-period tampon and then had s3x, which pushed the tampon further up into the vgee. Or a s3x partner will have accidentally left a condom inside their vgee, and another round in the sack will push the condom deeper inside.

Tampons and condoms are one thing. Food play during s3x, however, can lead to some especially nasty vgeel issues. “One time I pulled out a grape from somebody who was playing with food during s3x and forgot to remove it,” Hutcherson says. “The grape caused her really bad, foul discharge. If you forget something, you’ve got to get it out!”
