|MISSION STATEMENT: Founded in 2001, VaginaPagina is an online community that offers a supportive, progressive, body- and sex-positive environment in which to discuss issues related to female sexual and reproductive health and wellness. It is a unique, empowerment-based safe space that is GLBTQQIA- and kink-friendly. Our goal is to build knowledge and combat misinformation by sharing personal experiences and reliable information from credible sources. We believe that by becoming active in VP, members are participating in a revolutionary and life-changing project.|
And hey, there really is no such thing as "TMI," so don't be shy!

|Fine Print: This community is meant to give people a way to network and get support, ideas and resources. It is not in any way meant to be substituted for medical advice/care. It is generally a good idea to see your doctor when anything abnormal occurs. We recognize that doctors don't always listen so well, that they're not always open to natural medicine, or that not everyone has access to medical care; that's why we're here. Please, PLEASE, seek medical attention for serious problems. To find free or discounted healthcare in your area (U.S. only) go here. You can also go here to locate/rate a health care professional, or click here for the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association Referral Service. (It's a free, web-based referral service that provides information for those looking for LGBT-aware health care providers. You can also restrict your search to kink-aware providers and/or TS-/TG-aware providers.)|
Use VP responsibly and at your own risk/empowerment.
