Pain in my urethra, but not when peeing?
rachel Asked: Pain in my urethra, but not when peeing?
I'm 16 years old and a virgin. On Saturday night, I used veet hair removal cream around my pubic area and I noticed my urethra hurt pretty bad afterwards. It went away when I woke up the next morning. It doesn't hurt when I pee and nothing itches or is out of the ordinary. Just an hour ago, I tried to finger myself and it really started to hurt again. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with using veet or not because I've used it before and nothing happened. I've had a yeast infection before, and the pain feels similar to that but without the discharge and itching. Is there an easy fix? What's going on? Thanks!
I would recommend that you get proper attention for a doctor or OB/GYN. Veet and products like it have caused a chemical burn and these are serious problems that requires medical treatment as well. When you call the doctor's office, have the veet package handy in case the nurse asks about the ingredients. Please take action now before your symptoms get worst. You likely have inflammation and it will only get worse if not taken care of so take action.

It is normal to have some vaginal discharge, because the vagina stays moist as part of its self-cleansing mechanism. The normal moist discharge clears dead cells and bacteria from the vagina. It comes mainly from glands in the cervix (the neck of the womb), and is slightly acidic, which helps to keep infections at bay. The acidity results from lactic acid, formed by friendly bacteria as they break down sugars.
On average, a woman discharges from her vagina about 2 grams of dead cells and about 3 grams of mucus every day, but the amount of normal discharge varies from woman to woman, and with the menstrual cycle. Many women notice that, during the week following a period, there is hardly any discharge, and what there is has a thick consistency. Towards the middle of the cycle (about 2 weeks after the start of a period) the amount increases and it becomes thin, slippery and clear, like uncooked egg white. When this discharge is exposed to the air, it becomes brownish-yellow, so it is normal to find a yellowish stain on your knickers in the middle of the monthly cycle. There may also be a feeling of moistness and stickiness. Normal discharge does not smell, and does not cause any irritation or itching.
Discharge also increases during pregnancy. And during sexual excitement, vaginal discharge becomes very profuse because two glands near the vaginal opening (Bartholin's glands) secrete additional slippery mucus, which acts as a lubricant for intercourse.
***WHATS NOT NORMAL***
A discharge is likely to be abnormal if:
-it smells fishy
-it is thick and white, like cottage cheese
-it is greenish and smells foul
-there is blood in it (except when you have a period)
-it is itchy
-you have any genital sores or ulcers
-you have abdominal pain or pain on intercourse
-it started soon after you had unprotected sex with someone you suspect could have a STD
***TYPE OF DISCHARGE***
Thick & White – Normal in some women or thrush
Itchy – Thrush or trichomoniasis
Smelly – Bacterial vaginosis, Trichomoniasis, Gonorrhoea or Forgotten Tampon.
Bacterial vaginosis is a very common cause of vaginal discharge. The discharge smells fishy. You will find more information about bacterial vaginosis in the section on genital infections.
Thrush is caused by the yeast Candida albicans. The main symptom of thrush is itching, but it can cause a thick, whitish discharge. You will find more information about thrush in the section on genital infections.
Forgotten tampons. Lost tampons are quite a common cause of discharge. It is easy to forget to remove the last tampon at the end of a period. After a week or two, the tampon begins to fester, and there will be a foul-smelling discharge.
If you have an old tampon in place, remove it as soon as possible. If your discharge continues for more than a couple of days, see your doctor or visit a genitourinary medicine clinic.
Gonorrhoea is one of the most infectious sexually transmitted infections. It is caused by infection with the Gonococcus bacterium. If a woman has unprotected sex with a man who has it, she has a 60-90% chance of catching it. It is serious because if it is not treated, it can spread upwards to the Fallopian tubes. These tubes carry the egg from the ovary to the womb (uterus), so damage to them can cause infertility. About one-fifth of women with gonorrhoea have a foul-smelling, greenish-yellow discharge. About one-fifth have vague symptoms, such as a slight increase in discharge, pain on intercourse or lower abdominal discomfort. About one-fifth have no symptoms at all. (Most men with gonorrhoea notice an obvious discharge from the penis.) You will find more information about gonorrhoea in the section on genital infections.
Trichomoniasis is caused by a tiny amoeba-like (protozoan) organism called Trichomonas vaginalis. It used to be common, but for mysterious reasons is becoming less so; over the last 10 years the number of cases in England and Wales has fallen from 17000 to 5000 a yr. It causes a discharge that is often frothy and yellowish-greenish, but it may be thin and scanty. The discharge is smelly, and the vulva is often itchy and sore. It may also be painful to pass urine. It is caught from a man who has it, but he may be unaware of his condition as most men with trichomoniasis do not have any symptoms. It is not dangerous, though some doctors think it could possibly spread to the Fallopian tubes. You will find more information about trichomoniasis in the section on genital infections. If you think you have this infection, you should visit a genitourinary medicine clinic for treatment and to be checked for other infections
