Parents Forcing Me To Do Something (a medical procedure) I Don't Want To Do!
Question Posted Wednesday April 25 2012, 5:06 am
Please help me! Nobody will!:(
Ok, so I have a problem with my vagina. It's not sexuallity or puberty, it's just something wrong with it.
Anyways, i've done a treatment twice:
1st time: Didn't really hurt
2nd time: hurt bad!!
Ok so then I had a worse treatment. Ok anyways, i'm doing the same treatment for the third time, and I don't want to. I'm scared that it'll hurt worse because that worse treatment I had(Lets call it TREATMENT #2) might make it feel more painful.
So what do I do? Go suicidal? Run away? What do I do? My parents won't let me not go. Please help. No one will help me ;(
Dangernerd is correct in everything he has said to you. If your problem is as he has described then please inbox him as you did me and let him help you.
I'm sure that your parents are doing what they think is best for you. This may not be totally true. Being fully informed is what is best and it sounds to me as if Dangernerd can help you with getting the information needed to make a fully informed decision. If this the problem you are having; inbox him please. [ adviceman49's advice column | Ask adviceman49 A Question ]

Your questions are anonymous. None of the users here can see who posted your questions, only the moderators who run the site... and they won't even look unless you use your account to do something bad on the site.
The reason I explained that, is that it is OK to ask a question and just tell what the name of the procedure is, and what exactly they are doing to try and fix whatever the issue is.
Whatever it is, you aren't the first one it happened to, and while it may be embarrassing, nobody will know it is you, so you can speak freely.
I don't normally answer questions like this, but it sounded like something a friend of mine once tried to explain without saying the truth of the matter. I am not suggesting that it is the same, but I will tell you that story and you can see if it fits, or helps you.
My friend was born intersex. Ambiguous genitalia they called it at the time. The short version is that she had some female parts and some male parts.
The doctors, in their infinite need to "fix" this, removed the parts that were more male than female. Her body didn't develop like they thought it would, and it would have been better if they left her completely alone down there.
Nothing was broken... just different.
Years later, there is a huge community of intersex individuals on the net... and if I knew then, what I know now... I would have done everything in my power to keep the doctors away from my perfectly healthy, but very different friend.
So, on the off chance that that is what is happening with you... Inbox me, and I will send you a list of resources and people you can contact to help you and your parents make the right decisions.
If it is something else, please just say what it is. There is no need to be shy.
If this is a matter of you being victimized, then whoever tries to help you in a legal manner (lawyer, different doctor, children's rights advocate, etc) is going to need to know what it is you would rather die than go through. :-(
Also, if there is anyone here who has gone through it, then they will be able to tell you if procedure #3 is worse than #2, or if it is less hurtful.
