Blister on vagina – risk factors


It is already third time during last few years I am having the blister on vagina. Why it is happening with me? I am a nurse and I know a lot about women health but I don’t know What are Risk Factors for blister on vagina?

ANSWER from experts

If you already had the blister on vagina few times, it means there is an infection in your vagina and/or in your body.

Any person can get blister on vagina. In many cases vaginal blisters are developed because of sexually transmitted diseases (very often during HPV). Sometimes vaginal blisters can be developed in women who are not sexually active. There are several main causes for vaginal blisters including infections, friction, ingrown hairs or clogged sweat glands.

Women in their early 20’s tend to be the most at risk of developing the blister on vagina.

Main risk factors for the blister on vagina include the following:

  • Early start of sexual contact – at an early age;
  • Women with multiple sexual partners;
  • Women whose partners had and/or have different partners at any time;
  • Women with history of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs);
  • Women whose partners had and/or have sexually transmitted diseases (especially without any treatment);
  • Women who don’t use proper contraception (condom!);
  • Women whose sexual partners don’t or did not wear a condom.

Personal hygiene is also very important in preventing the blister on vagina.

If you want to prevent the blister on vagina, you can follow several advices developed by professionals:

  • Completely abstaining from sex or being in a mutually monogamous relationship;
  • Using condoms consistently and properly every time you have sex;
  • Vaccines can protect women against some of the most common types of HPV (main cause of the blister on vagina).

Two vaccines (Cervarix and Gardasil) are available to protect females against the types of HPV that cause most cervical cancers.
Important to know

An abnormal Pap test is often the first sign of a HPV infection. This is why it is important to start Pap tests by the time you are 21 years old. You should start earlier if you have special risks such as problems with your immune system or if you start sexual activities very early (13-15).
