The internet has literally brought the world together in a way that has revolutionized how we live today. The anonymity the internet provides removes all shame from people asking their darkest questions in a public forum. This terrifying glimpse into the psyche of the masses shows there are a significant amount of folks who believe in the average internet-goer more than the family doctor. We present you with the most embarrassing medical questions asked on public forums.
NOTE: These questions are unedited to highlight just how dumb our society is.
Itchy Vaginas Can Be Worrisome
“I’m a female and i have only been sexually active with two males. One was a long time (4 years) ago and the other is currently going on. 2 weeks ago he performed oral sex on me and found out a few days later that he had tonsillitis. He said that his doctor mentioned its a viral disease and can be transmitted to genitals.
I’m a little bit worried because for the past day or so my vagina has been itching. There’s no burning and no other symptoms i can notice except the itching and occasionally it will be a little senstive. Does it sound like i have tonsillitis on my vagina? Is that even possible? Could it maybe be just a mild yeast infection? Please help. thanks.”

What What’s On My Butt?
“I am completely puzzled about a sore that has appeared on my left butt.
It is red and tender to the touch, and radiates from a hard raised sore – like having a small bump or hill that is round and about the size of a quarter. At the center of the quarter is something odd – like as if I have been bitten but I really don’t recall a bite. It feels, swollen, and warm, but it does not bleed (but surely if I scratched it enough i could make it bleed, but I think that’s true anywhere on the skin – you could scratch until it bleeds.
The radius of the sore, red area is about two inches. I have no other rashes, bumps, of any kind on my body.
I am 36 and have no health problems. I am at MOST 15 pounds overweight. I have never had a weight problem. I am 5’8″, 155, and medium build, female. I am not sexually active because I am temporarily geographically separated from my boyfriend (not emotionally apart from him!).
I am sure that it could not be an STD.
The sore is towards the top half of my buttock. It does not hurt to go to the bathroom in anyway, and I recall having a little diarrhea about a week before the problem arose, but it was nothing excessive, and I associated it with eating WAY too many onions on a pizza! :-)
I hope this is enough information. I at a loss at what else to write that might be helpful.

Excruciatingly Painful and Incomplete Bowel Movements
“I have a very embarrasing problem. I am really way too young to be having this problem. I’m 23 and i am experiencing ALOT of pain when I go to the bathroom. I have had constipation problems for several months now and i kind of just ignored it and now it has gone to a much worse level. When I go to the bathroom, it REALLY REALLY hurts (feels like I have needles poking me and trying to come out) and my BM movements feel incomplete if you know what I mean (TMI sorry)…”
[NOTE: It goes on…and gets worse!]
“Anyways this has been going on for three weeks (the pain) and recently I have seen blood on the toilet paper and in the toilet. I’m trying to change my diet but its so hard. I have started eating steamed vegetables and drinking a lot of water during the day. I think this may be hemmorhoids but I am really afraid because I have heard that treatment for hemorrhoids can be surgery sometimes and that can lead to some potentially embarassing situations.”
