When you are on your period, does your vagina actually hurt?

What I mean is, mine hurts sort of like I got kicked really hard there. Usually for a day or two.

Am I the only one?

  • No, you're not... and this makes me laugh, my best friend and I call this a "head-unc" lol and I have NO IDEA WHY we thought it up when we were teens, and that was a LONG time ago... but it refers to feeling like having a headache "down there" ... I'll have to ask her where on earth we came up with that term for it, lol.

  • I have only noticed it on heavy days, I always thought it was because I use tampons, glad to know i'm not the only one lol.

  • I never use to, this is new for me since I have had the baby.

  • It never used to until I had a baby!

    Now YES! It does. My son is 2 and it still hurts for a day or two when it's heavy. Especially when I'm walking around and standing up. I'm guessing nerves got damaged/torn down there or something and the extra blood rushing down there irritates them?
