    Ladies would you opt out of a beach vacation if it was scheduled on your period?

    I’m feeling bummed out because me and 4 other ladies have a quick little trip to the beach planned except of course it falls on literally all of my period days, which my periods are kind of rough cramp wise and such. I’m still paying all my fees for the hotel and such since it was split between us but I don’t know if I should force myself to go and try to have fun or just not go but I feel bad even though I’d be paying all my prices. What would you do?

    What's the chance i have breast cancer at 21? HELP PLEASE IM SO SCARED?

    I have a hard round lump in the middle of my armpit deep down,it's a lymph node clearly. The area hurts and just started hurting 1 day ago. I had my covid shot in that same arm a WEEK,almost 2wks ago. I'm really worried. It's hard and very very slightly moves but not much. Is this cancer!? I'm really worried. I don't know if it was there before my shot. If it was from the shot why is it here this long later? It's about nickel sized. It almost feels like there's two. It's hard to feel unless I hunt for it. I'm in my 20s and a girl. There's like 3 there swollen it feels like. They feel like they move around when i touch them and they're hard. It is sore to touch suddenly.

    Is a hard,moveable lymph node likely to be cancer in the armpit?

    Favorite Answer:

    Your description sounds like a normal lymph node reaction to your vaccination as you have been told many of the innumerable times you have asked variations of this same question offer the weekend.

    If you want a definitive answer , see a doctor.

    Is it old to lose your virginity at nineteen or twenty as a woman?

    Favorite Answer:

    No, it isn't. Some people lost their virginity at this age, others don't. Some people wait until they're older, so don't lose their virginity until they're an adult. Some people never do, due to not having children, or not having biological children.

    The average age when someone has sex for the first time is 16. Some countries it's forbidden until a certain age, for example in the UK, it's 16, and it's 17 in the republic of Ireland. In some countries, it's illegal to have sex outside of marriage.

    how to know if you had an org?

    i know most people say “you’ll know” but i just can’t tell. i normally stimulate myself with either my fingers or my wand massager. so it starts off by just feeling really good, and then it’s like a rising feeling, like reaching the peak of something. and then when i reach the top of whatever, my stomach starts like contracting, i start curling up and moving around and stuff and then after that, i know that i’m done because my clit starts hurting if i keep rubbing or keep the vibration on it. now i’m not sure if that’s necessarily an orgasm because my cooch is just super super wet but nothing white comes out unless it’s not supposed to be white. if this isn’t an orgasm, how do i get one considering my clit hurts after that peak?

    Can I lie to a doctor about whether or not I’ve gotten the covid vaccine?

    So I recently turned 18 and I want to switch from my pediatrician to a new doctor. I also recently got the first dose of the covid vaccine. I did this secretly because my mother is anti-vaccination and would have been very upset. I also have some minor medical issues and this new doctor wants to give me a check up as well as do a blood draw. I know my mother will be present, and it’s very uncomfortable to tell her to leave the room so if the doctor asks if I have received the covid vaccine, is it okay to lie? Will it affect anything? Will it show up in blood work and expose me? I’m not really interested in answers like “just tell your mom the truth” or “just ask her to leave the room when you’re at the appointment”. Please understand. Thank you

    Should I ask for a different nurse or should I change my provider because I know the nurse?

    Me and this nurse used to work together years ago and we have mutual people that we know. I see a doctor in that office and I have notice each time I go there she is my nurse even if my provider changed, she still my nurse. She is a nice person but I just don't feel comfortable talking about my personal stuff with her because I know her.

    Can I ask for a different nurse? but if she found out I asked for a different nurse she would feel strange about it. Should I just go to a different office for my regular check up? Regular check ups they asked a lot of personal question and some questions they don't even need to be asking. I just need my regular health checked that's it

    Period late for 118 days?

    I can't be pregnant, I'm 13, I don't like men, and I'm a virgin. When my period was 82 days late I brought it up to my mother and she said it was normal because I'm young. Prior, my periods were somewhat irregular in the sense that I got it every other month. I've suspected endometriosis due to my abnormally heavy flow and debilitating cramps, but when I asked her to take me to a gyno and she refused. Then I asked if I could try taking birth control to make my period more regular, but she refused to do that as well. Should I be worried?

    My gf had BV the first time we had sex and I’m very sad/confused about it?

    I’ve always been under the assumption that having BV means that you’re what society would call you a “****” I don’t condone this type of talk but it’s what I’ve heard around me. Like “you know that girl with the fishy vagina what a ****”. This has made me very upset because the first time my gf and I had sex I believe she had BV. I love my girlfriend very much and would never break up with her for this reason it’s just very upsetting to me and gets stuck in my head with profound negativity. I’ve heard that many things can cause BV but it’s mostly unprotected sex and I know she had a bf before me.

    Any advice? Girls I didn’t mean this to be offensive, I just need enlightenment.
