Customer Question
Hi, Iv recently just...

Hi, Iv recently just got a new partner a few months ago, and over the last few weeks it's been really hirting when I have sex. Iv also just noticed that parts of my vagina have gone white. It's like the opening but inside, it's just the tips of one side. At first I thought it was discharged but wouldn't go after a bath so I had a little look and they are white. Would you be able to help because Iv never had something like this and really scared, thankyou.

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Over all I'm okay, recently Iv been having really bad cramps to the left side of my hip near my bladder, but just thought it was constipation but after tablets it's sort of got better so Iv just left it. But yeh this is the first Iv seen of it and not heard of anything like it so I'm a bit scared

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Iv had herpies once before but this is nothing like this

Have you ever had a gyn/OB exam?

Have you seen your doctor about this?

No I haven't, Iv been checked out before when I found out I had Herpes but Iv not been to a doctor after that. Iv not been to a doctor about this yet as I found this out like an hour ago and freaked out so I was looking to see what it is but I can't get any answers

Well we do not diagnose, or treat, or replace your doctors visit.

White stuff is usually yeast.

This is easily diagnosed by any doctor with exam and a swab for the microscope.

Enough inflammation from infection, from yeast or anything else, can cause pain, and this is most likely.

Of course, we can not examine you and this is an educated guess./

It does not sound like any STD or something serious.

HOwever, there is a condition called lichen sclerosis which can cause white patches of skin; this is treated with steroid.

So, you need an exam next.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

I don't have any irregular discharge, it is literally the opening of my vagina. It's like the skin has turned white, it looked like a burn I guess. Do you suggest I go to the doctors?
OB GYN Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

Yes I do.

Please look at my last answer.

I suggested an exam.

Lichen sclerosis can do this, and can be serious if not treated, but it is fully treatable.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
