Hi, I'm 25, from OH, and actually I'm a virgin. I was looking for information about yeast infections and stumbled across this community. Seems like a great place with fantastic people.

Hi! I'm Cassie, I'm 19 years old. I found this community through an interest search; I was looking for relevant communities that could provide me with more information regarding PCOS and its effects.

Most of the time my vagina and I don't get along but I think we're in the process of becoming friends ;)

Hey all, I've been a member of this community for a few months now, but I just found this handy little intro post :). I'm 22 and live in Lorain, OH (about 35 miles west of Cleveland). For the past 3 years, while in college, I worked for a peer-to-peer HIV testing program, and before that I volunteered for Planned Parenthood for a summer in Bethlehem, PA, as well as an AIDS Services Center. I never had any issues with my vagina until about a year and a half ago, when I started getting tons of YI's, UTI's and BV infections, as well as issues with my birth control. I found this community through the community birthcontrol, which I've since left, because I found the resources here to be much more comprehensive and the people much more open and accepting. I love you gals!
dfa1969 Bisexuality is confusing!!!18th-Jul-2007 01:09 am (UTC)
My name's Bailey, I'm 16 and just got out of a really hard relationshit. I'm the kind of person who becomes vidictive and weary of the opposite sex when one person hurts me. My ex boyfriend hurt me, and now I hate all men. It doesn't help that I was molested when I was five and am already quite skeptical of the male gender in general...I have a crush on my best friend, and I can't tell her! It's so frustrating, because she's so happy right now, and I like seeing her happy. Even if it's not with me. I guess I'm just looking for support and a person or some people to relate to. or something. I never really can feel comfortable when I'm with a guy, I've always had a bad feeling about them in the pit of my stomach, and I've always found women much more aesthetically pleasing...well, what am I going to do? I have few options, and am frantically trying to avoid them...along with dealing with my PD and my mother's PD...(personality disorder). we're both Borderline/Depressive Neurosis...
If anyone can relate, hit me up and we'll chat or something!

Herzliche Grüße!! Greetings from Germany.... I'm finishing up a semester of study abroad here in Freiburg, so in less than two weeks I'll be back in my home state of Vermont, then a month after that back at Mt Holyoke College in MA for my senior year (class of '08). So, I'll just mark myself in VT on the map!

I'm 21 years old, female, bisexual (probably a 2 on the kinsey scale), a psychology major, music minor, vegetarian since 2 years or so, and in a relationship. I've been with my boyfriend for 1.5 years, and we have a great relationship. I love him very much. We have a healthy sexual relationship as well....

Vaginas can be a pain in the... vagina. So, I wanted to join a community where I could learn more, and also encourage fellow vagina-owners and have vagina pride. :)

subarashiine HI!!6th-Aug-2007 03:55 am (UTC)
I can't even say how happy I am to have found a community like this- I enjoy celebrating women and my vagina. I love my vagina and am so proud of ME.

I'm 18, entering college in the fall (will be 19 in October) and I live in New York City. I have an utterly wonderful boyfriend of close to 3 happy years and my life is so wonderful.

I cannot wait to contribute ^_^

Hi, I'm Suzy. I'm 24 years old and have been on LJ since 2001. I found out about this community years ago actually, but for some reason never joined up. Well, I'm very glad I did, I'm learning a lot about my body and women's health. Everyone here is so helpful! Thanks again.

Hello my name is Chalotte, I am 17, and come from england.
I have read a lot of good things about this community so I desided to join! :D

Greetings, fellow vagina-owners!

My name is Gracie, I'm almost 21, and I'm from Texas. I'm a women's health specialist currently working at for an abortion provider. My official title is "patient advocate," which is medical-speak for "medical assistant/surgical tech/ultrasound tech/phlebotomist/counselor," lol. Before this I was a medical assistant for a gynecologist and a rape crisis counselor. I particularly love working with adolescent patients.

I went through precocious puberty (breast development around age 6, menarche at 9), was diagnosed with mild endo at 16 after a long struggle with constant pelvic pain, had surgery for a microperforate hymen at 17, and was assaulted at 18. There is strong evidence to suggest that I was sexually abused as a child.

I'm a lifelong and very vocal feminist, and I'm glad to be among the like-minded here!

Hi I'm a medical student from Australia. I think I want to do Obs/Gyn when I finish my degree. I've delivered one baby and that was totally amazing :D I've got a lovely boyfriend who I've been friends with for years before we started dating. Sometimes, I curse being female and having to be the one that menstruates, and I think life would be a lot easier if I could just skip the whole thing. (And hey sometimes I do skip it using the pill, completely safe according to the head O&G professor at my Uni)
I think this community is great and I hope to learn heaps from being here!

Hello I am Leigh, 32, from Michigan who oddly enough found this community through another community.

My husband and I have been married for almost 6 months!

I love a community where you can ask real questions openly and get the answers/opinions you really need from other women.
kungfuxcandy 15th-Sep-2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
Hi! I'm Megan. I'm 21 years old and I found this LJ by using a Google search to a question I had. VP was one of the first things that came up.

I love the idea of having a community where you can ask question and get real, well thought out answers instead of a bunch of bovine fecal matter.

I have a lovely boyfriend that I've been with for 7 months now and although we have our ups and downs, we take good care of each other.

Anyway, I'm glad I joined. My mom is a nurse and has been for 22 years, but sometimes when I can't get her on the phone to ask questions it will be nice to know that there is someone out there that I can talk to!

Hello! I'm 28 years old and Child free. I have a paragard IUD (since May 2007) that I'm in love with. I found this group through iud_divas and I like it already!

hello! i am 26 yrs old, in Pennsylvania US and found this community while browsing though another lj users community. i have posted with questions on aphroditewomen.com but i always forget to check it over there for responses. i've been on ovcon 35 for 4 years and nuva-ring for a month and half. i can't wait to join discussions - i've been though some unique times.

i live with my boyfriend of almost 10 months, i believe he will be the one i grow old with. we are very active with each others family and are each other's best friends. we get mad and snap at each other - but always apologize. it's the craziest thing i've experienced.

anyway, i'm excited to be here!
steelribbons 30th-Sep-2007 05:29 am (UTC)
Ovcon 35!! Ha! I thought no one else even knew what that was. Lol, it one of the least used ones out there, according to my women's health class : ) I have been using it for two years now and had the best results (albeit out of a pretty negative experience all together!!) I now use Balziva, the generic version of it, because I was told by my pharmacy that they stopped making Ovcon, but created the generic. Do you still get Ovcon, or do you use the generic?

I'm 21 years old, from Sacramento California. I'm have one year left of college then I'm going to med school, so that I can be a sex therapist with the ability to prescribe medication to my clients. I stumbled across this site and totally fell in love! It is part of my career to be on the up and up on all things genital, haha! The vagina especially! What a cool site, I look forward to meeting you all : )
marijke_rose Grüße from Germany!2nd-Oct-2007 08:13 pm (UTC)
I just barely joined, I'm Marijke (say: Mar-EYE-kuh), a 27 (28 tomorrow) year old American woman living in Germany. I'm a wife (to a German man) and a mother of two young children.

I'm not sure what else to say about myself, LOL! I love children/family, animals, languages/culture, art, drawing, learning, health, and other things.

(One little note: Marijke is a Dutch name, not German; and it's a nickname someone gave me quite a few years ago and now it's what everyone calls me!)

Tschüß!
suburban_mom 10th-Oct-2007 02:38 pm (UTC)
My name is Lee and no matter what you call it, cunt, cooze, cootchie snorcher, love tunnel or whatever else, I'm a big fan of my girl bit. I hail from southern ontario, canada and found this page through one of your members. I popped in, grinned and decided to stay.

I believe no question is too sensitive to be asked of me, so ask away.

20yrs old, New Yorker looking to relocate to Sweden in 2009. Came here because I stumbled upon this community randomly and after seeing the "everyones vagina is different" thread, I've loved this community because I know I'm normal "down there" and not a freak or mutilated.
noodleish 2nd-Nov-2007 02:38 pm (UTC)
I'm 18, Grew up in a small town in the US, and ended up in England. Joined this community because I was so paranoid over any small changes in my body and wanted to figure out just what was causing them, haha.
ayearalone 4th-Nov-2007 12:10 pm (UTC)
Just realized that I never did this. Almost 21 (two days). Came to this community because I love seeing women (and some men) work together to help each other. Currently in Japan, but I'm originally from Ohio.
whitneysrose 12th-Nov-2007 09:35 pm (UTC)
I'm 20, Canadian, and I joined to get reproductive health information and to help others however I can.
