Question Need Advice. Please Help!

Hi, this is a really long story, so if you can read it all and tell me what you think it would help alot.
I'm 18 But for almost 2 years now, I've had this really irritating itch.

Basically, It started one night after I'd came back from a concert with a friend. I'd been sitting in a car for 2 hours there and two hours back in a pair of very tight skinny jeans, and when I got home, I had the worst itch I could imagine. I tried to ignore it and go to bed, but the worst thing about this itch is its like constant and it gets so bad you have to scratch it and then it ends up stinging because its obviously already a very sensetive area.

I found its at the very top of my vagina around the clitoris... I think that area. Anyway... the itch kept coming back, until it was coming every single night.I found that the itch would always go away... or lessen when I had my period and then come back straight after my period was over. But after some months, that changed and I got it regardless of if I was on my period or not.

I went to the doctors and was given creams, I stopped using shower gels, stopped using anything down there that I thought could be setting it off. None of it worked. I was put on a dose of anti-biotics that didn't work.

I went back and got a swab test, that came back clear and they said I didnt even have thrush, so that was very confusing.

I tried to get a proper look at that area because to be honest I never really look down there, I'm still a virgin and if im completly honest, I find this whole thing mortifying and embarassing.

I found that there were dark dried clumps of yellow discharge sticking to the hairs inside my vagina ( if hairs inside your vagina is normal lol )
and the area is very red, probably due to the constant scratching, I try not to but its really hard, I actually do it in my sleep aswell so theres no way to escape it.

I checked again a couple months later ( as you can see I was still putting going back to the doctors off) and it seemed as though there was alot of more sort of yellowish discharge.

When I did go back to the doctors. It wasn't very helpful. I was just given a cream again. She only had 2 other options for me and that was capsule ( I'm really bad at taking tablets but I guess I could try) or a pessary... but I don't really understand how pessaries work or anything and the idea of having to stick that where it has to go grosses me out. I was wondering aswell if the itch is at the top would a pessary at the bottom even still work?

I'm really scared cuz Im gonna have to go back again and get another swab test and the doctor wants to like examine me. I just find it really really embarassing. Im worried that this is going to turn into me getting a whole manner of tests and stuff, and being poked and prodded down there, its my worst nightmare. I'm worried aswell that if I end up getting reffered to say a gynocologist, I've heard some real horror stories, Im afraid I wont be a virgin when I come out. I dunno if that sounds silly or not. I dont feel like the doctors are listening to me when Im telling them I'm still a virgin, its very frustrating.

The itch and the pain makes me feel really horrible and unwomanly, I'm just scared that it won't go away.

Please, I really need some advice.
Thank you

Re: Need Advice. Please Help!

okay, first off can only lose your virginity with a man. =] the gynocologist sees and deals with several va jay jay's a day. don't be scared, they are well trained and experienced in that area, so try to feel comfortable enough to put your trust into them. they are experts.

with your concern about your you know if you are allergic to any sorts of fabrics? the fabric in your undies may be to blame. If you ware your pants too tight they could be rubbing up against that area and chaffing it, creating the pain and such. don't be afraid to go to another clinic or to make an appt. with a specialist. every doctor is different so they have different experiences and knowledge. yellow discharge may be your natural discharge color but it could be an indicator of an infection. good luck. i hope everything works out for you and you figure this out. =]
