I am 14 years old and have a ball shaped hard growth in my vagina. I am scared to tell my mom about it. What should I do?
It can be embarrassing to talk about your vagina but really it is just another part of your body. If you are concerned about the health of your vagina, you need to see a health care provider who specializes in women’s health. Your mother definitely knows a gynecologist or Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner because she gave birth to YOU. If you feel like you can’t talk to your mother, is there another trusted adult in your life? Another option is to go to Planned Parenthood. The experts in their clinic are prepared to address any women’s health concern.
