FTM DOWN THERE HEALTH UTIs YEAST INFECTIONS ECT
*intro music plays* hey there! my name is chase and this is a tutorial for my sex education stuff uhhhh. tutorial. series. *whispers* yeahhhhh. before i even start with the TITLE of this tutorial, although you've probably seen it. DISCLAIMER. Trigger warning! Literally. like, DISClAIMER. this tutorial is about the health of an area. that trans men are usually dysphoric about and dont want to talk about, and dont want to look at it and anything like that dont want to use it whereas some people they like it, and doesnt matter
no dysphoria *MMPH noise* but, a lot of people are like do not talk about this. but, today I am going to talk about the health of your and im going to call it, your whoha. its either that or using the well like im not gonn use the word fronthole cuz for me i associate that mostly with sex, and im not gonna use the vword becasue that would w that no. im not doing that cuz no. so. im talking about the health of your whoha and um. having a healthy whoah *adorably awkward laugh* i cant take tis seriously but for real. ummm being like you know why? you know why im doing this?
because there's absolutely NO information that i have found with all my research that i have done on UTIs, on yeast infections, and on and i have to use the word right now and im sorry because its part on the word on bacterial vagiosis. vaginosis? i said it that time. just making sure thats how you say it sorry. there theres like basically no information. sure, sure, if you google it you'll get like one or two sources, but um, i thought that i would talk about some things that i have found. now, when trans people trans men specifically, have infections, STIs, anything like that, its very hard for us to look at some of the symptoms because its like what do you look at? the men, the women, i dont know. so i made
a tutorials about STIs for FTMs, which i will link. um. right there. kay, just for you, put it right there. we're talking about STIs, gonorrhea and all that stuff. fun. but I made that tutorial to provide information. even though you could google this information, i think its cool to have it in a tutorial form so we can like interact together. so, today im going to be talking about three main infections. that effect the whoha that we need to talk about. so im going to start with UTIs, and please remember because theres not real lots of information for trans guys on this, um. that it i do have to look at the symptoms for women
more, but i have searched a lot like, women high testosterone UTI and stuff like that just to see. or like hormonal balance an stuff lik just to see if its anything related to hormones, and to see if we are more susceptible to it. alright so what is a uti? so a UTI is a urinary tract infection and its when bacteria um is introduced into the urethra, usually goes all the way up to the bladder and can lead to bladder infections, and if untreated can also lead to kidney infections.
so the most common bacteria that is actually inroduced into the urethra is e coli and its very like the percentage of infections from that is very high and that bacteria usually comes from the bowels i know, all of this is just so like oh great chase, thank you for this information. but you know what? lets just we need this information im gonna use words if you watched my STI tutorial, oh my god i cant believe i said all
Urinary Tract Infections 5
Op. Gotta pee. (door closing) (zipper unzipping) There are three things I wanna tell you about urine. (intro: slam and discreet cough) Lesson one, there is a system responsible for discharging urine. It does not include the vagina. Urine is produced in the kidneys, it comesdown two tubes called the ureters,
it's held in the bladder and then exits throughthe urethra in a hole called the meatus. Most meatuses are located here in the vulvain between the vagina and the clitoris and here on the penis at the glans or head. And then because no body is the same, we've got meatuses that are sometimes located here and here and here and here. Note, none of these holes are the vagina. Many people think that vaginas are theexit point for urine, but they're not. Not typically anyway.
So why do people think that urine leaves the body via the vag? Perhaps they weren't taught, or didn't learn. Perhaps they think that the vagina isthe opposite of the penis and therefore since urine comes out of the penis thenit must come out of the vagina. Or maybe because they sit down on the toilet, urinate, and it feels like it's coming out of their vagina. Lesson two, there aren't usually germs in the urinary tract. Germs do attack the urinary tract by goingthrough the meatus up the urethra.
This is commonly referred to as a urinary tract infection, or a UTI. Some people call it the quot;Honeymoon Diseasequot;. Why do they call it that? Because when a newlywed couple is gettingsloppy, there are bodily fluids everywhere that transmit the bacteria from the anus to the vagina. Now you've just been told. Ok. It's incredibly painful. You'll feel the urge to pee, you'll go to the bathroomand nothing will come out except maybe a trickle.
This sensation will persist,minutes later the same process again. Then you add feeling feverish, nauseous, achy. If you finally do get anything out of yoursystem, it's cloudy and pungent smelling. Oh, and it burns. So you're ready to get help. When you do, the might say something like quot;You've got a urinary tract infection,here's a prescription for antibiotics. Take these and you'll feel better soonquot;.
And you might reply, quot;Oh no, I don't want to putantibiotics in my system, no unnecessary things here. I don't want to create a giant superbugthat's going to be drug resistantquot;. And the might say, quot;If you don't dowhat I recommend, you'll probably be crawling back in here tomorrow much worse.quot; And you might take the prescription, surrendering to the excruciating, inflamed irritation between your legs. Okay, so a few hours later,you go to the bathroom again, and you think it's going to be this agonizing pain but it's not,
