Hi I am 21, my vagina is dry and itchy. I use escitalopram 20 mg daily for my anxiety. My vagina feels a bit tender when I touch it. I was also raped and he used a condom but after I went to the bathroom I saw that the condom had a hole on top withmaybe that’s how he toke it off. I was a virgin before. I’m really scared please help me

I don’t see much discharge anymore because it’s dry. No foul door. Putting olive oil on my vagina helped with the dryness and itchy ness
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No history of yeast infection, no history of foul odor
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 7 months ago

I do think it is ruptured hymen. The hymen is a thin tissue or membrane that covers the opening of your vagina. If this tissue is still intact the first time you have sex, it is bound to tear during penetration. This tearing of the hymen often leads to bleeding as well as pain.

What do you think is the treatment and how long will the discomfort last generally
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 7 months ago

You can try warm sitz bath with betadine liquid and it should help with pain.

It should last for a week.

Can I try over the counter medication for itchy ness and dryness
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 7 months ago

You can do warm sitz bath with betadine liquid.

You can continue with olive oil to the labia to help moisturize and strengthen the vaginal tissue.

WIll the small bumps around and inside the vagina go away ? I never had that before the rape incident
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Why would u say it’s likely not std? Sorry I’m really paranoid and can’t sleep due to this stressing me out
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 7 months ago

I think you should should consult your gynecologist and they can do a comprehensive STD panel testing as well.

I understand that you can be having some post traumatic stress and it can affect your sleep.
