I once had a small sore because i had been wearing a pad for about two and a half weeks straight because my period was late a didn't want to have an accident. I had also been doing a lot of walking during this time and therefore sweating down there at the same time. It was painful and red but not very large. My doctor agreed that this was the cause and it went shortly after I stopped wearing a pad. I would guess that a thong could have the same affect.

Yes, thongs can cause friction damage and menstrual pads can cause irritation.

If you use commercial menstrual pads - for example Always or Kotex - then this is a fairly common issue because these type of pads have rough edges that can rub the skin raw. These types of pads prevent air-flow so make genitals sweaty and stop blood from drying so this cause cause the skin to stay moist and become irritated, a little like diaper rash if left too long it can result in sores developing. Commercial tampons also contain chemicals you may be allergic to.


It's best to see your doctor to check for certain that this is all that is causing the sores, but in future avoid thongs and rather than commercial pads opt for organic pads or better still cloth pads, you can also use options like menstrual cups or softcups which are internal and don't require pad use.

Is leukorrhea curable?

It may be curable depending on the cause.There are many causes of leukorrhea, the usual one being estrogen imbalance. The amount of discharge may increase due to vaginal infection or STDs, and also it may disappear and reappear from time to time, this discharge can keep occurring for years in which case it becomes more yellow and foul-smelling; it is usually a non-pathological symptom secondary to inflammatory conditions of vagina or cervix.Vaginal discharge is not abnormal, and causes of change in discharge include infection, malignancy, and hormonal changes. It sometimes occurs before a girl has her first period, and is considered a sign of puberty.Leukorrhea refers to a white to yellow vaginal discharge that can be normal, from a hormone imbalance, or from vaginal irritation/ inflammation. If it is normal (often called a "physiologic discharge") then not much can be done about it. If it is from hormone imbalances or irritation then it may be treatable. Pregnancy is a common cause and for that, obviously, the cure is to deliver the baby.

Why does taking out your tampon hurt?

Taking tampons out shouldn't hurt - for the record, your body does not need to 'adapt' either.It may hurt if you're using too high an absorbency - tampons dry-out vaginal tissues, thus higher absorbency without sufficient flow means more damage and irritation as you remove. If you're tense this can also cause pain as vaginal walls will tighten around the tampon making it hard to pull out.
