Re: Penis Size

I'll echo Sam - you're still at an age where you can keep growing and changing and your body, genitals included, might look very different in a few years. I understand it can be frustrating to sit around and wait, but you're definitely not running out of time, everyone's timeline is different.

Re: Lighter Flow Than Normal?

Hi nyxoxo, welcome to the boards! You know, periods are one of those topics that we don't want to make assumptions about because there could be so many variables and reasons it changes etc. It's definitely not weird for people to have a heavy flow but then occasionally have lighter periods, it's usu...

Re: Bumps on labia minora

Hi Meggyd18, There's definitely a chance they're normal and not harmful if you've had them for a long time, they definitely could be sebaceous glands. Unfortunately without being able to see what they look like, and of course without being medical professionals, we can't give you a definite answer. ...

Re: Question about sperm

Hi BlueFlower823 welcome to the boards! From what you're describing, it sounds like there's a very low risk you could get pregnant that way. While technically semen could travel from the clit area to the vagina on its own, it would be more so if you're in a position where it could run down into it, ...

Re: Touching my Nexplanon?

Best of luck with that, I think it'll be a great step. In the meantime I just wanted to reassure you again that feeling it or touching it won't make it stop working or become less effective. Let us know at any time if there's any other questions we can answer for you!

Hi there, welcome back. I'm sorry you've been dealing with this, it sounds super frustrating and confusing, even stressful. We can't help where our minds go sometimes, such as with past events that we've "gotten over" and moved on from, it's natural for our minds to sometimes go back and r...

Re: Masturbating as a pre-op trans woman

You're not weird for that at all! How great orgasms are is subjective, also. For some people it's the best thing in the world, for others they're not a big deal at all, and everything in between. I'm glad you're on the way to experiencing it, though, and deciding for yourself! Wish you the best of l...

I love utility queer! Rubix, I totally understand that and relate. As I started to realize I was basically gender apathetic, I experimented with "styles" from goth to girly and in my case to soft butch too. Now I would say my gender expression falls under butchy femme, since that's what I'...

Hi there and welcome to the boards! Do not worry, what you're seeing is normal and it sounds like you're cleaning enough. You shouldn't be using soap in that area (only around it, but not near the vagina). If you've never had any infections then you don't have to worry about your cleaning methods, s...

Re: When I try to finger myself I don’t feel stimulated

There's not really an alternative that's safe enough, but you can check out your local Planned Parenthood, other sexual health clinics or even a school nurse's office. Most of them give condoms out for free, so you don't have to worry about buying them. Same thing with lube!

Re: The side of my shaft hurts.

It's likely you just need to take a break from masturbating, and be gentle if/when you do. You should be okay if you just take care of yourself for a couple of days. If the pain persists in a day or two, it might be good to check with a doctor.

Honestly, it seems you are doing everything right as far as how you're cleaning the area. Gentle scrubbing with a towel and soap for a minute or two would remove any dirt built up.
