    This is not embarrassing; this is serious.

    Please, I beg you, go and see your doctor.

    I really do not mean to be rude, but OP for the love of god just go to your bloomin GP! My mum is a midwife, knows a lot of the GP's, receptionists at the surgery, but does that bother me? no!! If I have an issue, I am going to go to be seen - im not going to sit around for 2 yrs in pain just for the sheer sake ''Ooo the receptionist/GP might know who I am'' - :rolleyes:

    If you are happy to sit for the rest of your life with a lump in your vagina, then carry on - but for once in your life, just put the ''They know me thingy'' aside and go and sort your problem out.

    EDIT: The GPs/receptionists can NOT release any information about you to any family member who is in the profession - that would be breaking confidentiality!!! . . .

    So because its not painful you are in no hurry to get the problem sorted? . .

    What about when you become sexually active? . . .As an example if I was a bloke and was getting ''freaky'' with you and I saw the lumps, I wouldn't touch you with a barge pole - why? because I have no idea what it is you have. It could be catching . . you have no idea.

    Sorry if that sounds rude, but just go and get it sorted. GPs won't laugh at you or anything like that - they are there for a reason.

    You don't have to sit there and explain in gory detail to the GP - just give them a sort of inkling of what you have and then the GP will examine you (you can request a female GP instead of a male).

    But ah well . . not my lady garden - can't be bothered to sit here and convince someone to visit their GP when their pride is too high!!

    Tbh you are NOT going to get an online diagnosis of what you have - a GP will HAVE to see you! NHS direct might be a good place to start, but GP or GUM is your only choice!

    Good Luck!

    you are actually ridiculous.
    if it turns out to be something serious im fairly sure you'll be telling your parents anyway, so grow up and go to see your GP.

    Maybe you should be concerned!
    Nah, NHS ReDirect is based on a system developed by health insurance companies in the US - it's extremely risk adverse, it's job is to stop the company being sued not to provide the most accurate triage service.

    It's been bothering you for two years, you're obviously worked up about it and you don't know what it is. How much are you willing to bet its not serious?

    Also, why can't your dad find out? If he's a doctor, he's not exactly going to be surprised to discover that his daughter has a vagina, is he?

    Thats the last thing I want to talk to him about.


    And I'm not sure theres even anything serious or anything at all wrong, it only looks a bit weird.

    Is there any particular reason you don't want to talk to him about it? Have you got any female relatives you can confide in?

    Its always a good idea to get things checked out. Doctors aren't just there for when you think its serious. Perhaps a GUM clinic, they'll be pretty well versed in things down there and you could make an appointment for when you're in town anyway and no one will find out.
