The Surface Of The Vaginal Opening That Feels Jagged?
Afternoon, I’m jolie. I have a complaint that the surface of my vaginal opening feels very jagged. Once I put my finger in out of curiosity, and the inside is also very jagged. Is that normal? And also lately my vagina feels dry. (I have had sex before marriage; only with 1 partner; and have also had the HPV vaccine)
Conditions in the vagina that feel jagged may be a normal variant. The shape of each woman's vagina can be very different. Generally, the walls of the vagina are wrinkled and this is called vaginal rugae. It could be palpable jagged is the vaginal rugae. However, in addition to the normal variant due to rugae, the vagina feels jagged, it can also be caused by the following other reasons:
Vaginal lumps such as genital warts
Chronic lichen simplex
If you are worried or disturbed by these complaints, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further examination can be carried out with a physical examination to see the inside of the vaginal wall. If a lump is found, the doctor can perform additional tests to determine the cause. Once your condition is known, the doctor can provide the right treatment for you.
If the jagged surface is rugae, then no you don't need to be given any treatment because the condition is still within normal limits, but if an abnormal condition is found, the doctor will provide treatment according to your condition.
As for vaginal dryness, vaginal dryness can be influenced by hormonal factors, age at menopause, less foreplay, being stressed or experiencing other psychological problems, a history of using too much soap or feminine hygiene fluid, exposure to chemicals in the vagina, postpartum, side effects of drugs. and if you are on chemotherapy treatment.
Some tips you can do:
Clean the vagina with clean plain water, not hot or too cold water, without soap, without feminine hygiene
Make sure to rinse the underwear thoroughly when washing
Change underwear when wet
Manage stress well
If the vagina feels dry during intercourse, do longer foreplay or use additional lubricant if necessary
If the condition bothers you, consult a dermatologist or obstetrician, okay?
