for family friend 12 year daughter. she was examined and found to have lacerations. She has had no intercourse, and unknown of any objects used. Could this come from masterbation or her putting objects inside. She also had infection but they said it was normal during exam, and was treated with antibiotics

I've had a thick white odorless discharge that two gyn's have missed. The exact words that came out of the first ones mouth was "you're as clean as a whistle". It seems to come in cycles. Light, thick, and then it seems to go away for a little bit.

I completed a six month session of Lupron Therapy and it made a huge difference in my life in terms of pain. I have abdominal wall endometiosis, which is wacky. It has been 5 months since my last injection. So I experienced some relief. During the therapy i did not have a period. I got my 1st post lupron period in December, As the months progress the pain is increasing. I'm wondering if I should do another round of Lupron. I experienced side effects such as hot flashs, insomnia, hair loss and mood changes. So why would I do it again? Because the months without the pain made a huge difference in my life. I was active again and able to enjoy life without scheduling life around the pain. Any comments?
