  • Scared of possible HSV-2 diagnosis.

    Last week I had sex with a guy I’ve been sleeping with for months. (We had always used condoms) this time it started with the condom on then it was taken off.

  • Does this look like herpes?

    I can’t tell if this is herpes, vestibular papilliomatois or something else.  A little bit of itching and irritation but mostly unnoticable.

  • Looks like a cut in labia

    Can somebody tell me what's this. I've been to doc for my itchy vagina, which she says is due to yeast infection. Later some days, i took a pic of the area to have a look at it, and this scared me. I have never noticed it before. I can't say whether it's always been like this or now.
