My intention with this piece is to open up dialogue, educate women, and encourage us all to know, love, and celebrate our bodies. Enjoy the info, and please, pass it on!
- The only cancer a Pap smear screens for is cervical cancer. It doesnít check your ovaries, your uterus, or your colon.
What is HPV? An OBGYN explains here.
- How much vaginal discharge you make varies widely. Some normal, healthy women spew loads of discharge and need to wear panty liners every day. Others are bone dry. As long as you are not at risk of STDs and you have no itching, burning, or odor, you’re probably just fine. If in doubt, see your gynecologist.
- Every vulva is different and special. Some lips hang down. Some are tucked up neatly inside. All are beautiful. Donít even think about labiaplasty or ďvaginal rejuvenation surgery.Ē Youíre perfect just the way you are.
- Most women donít have orgasms from intercourse alone. The clitoris is where the action is. Most women who do orgasm during sex have figured out how to with hitting the sweet spot, either from positioning or from direct stimulation of the clitoris with fingers.
- If youíre hunting for your G Spot, be patient. Stimulating this area usually requires more time and deeper stimulation than most people think. Try using a finger in a ďcome hitherĒ motion to stimulate the front wall of the vagina, where the G spot lives. If you canít find it, donít worry. Youíre not alone. Many canít- and it’s definitely not critical to having a fulfilling romp in the hay.
