Is it normal for part of your breast (not the nipple) to have a different skin pigment? I have a ~3 cm patch of brownish skin. No pain and no lumpiness.

Anonymous 7122

Have you always had it, or did it just appear recently?

Anonymous 7124


Recently, like a few months ago.

Is it normal to get more acne than usual when you first get on the pill (mine is Isibloom)? Will the acne get better or nah?

Also, I've been spotting terrible and I've been on said pill for over a month now. Other weird effects have been that my boobs are definitely larger, does that eventually go away?

i have smegma on only one side of my labia and both are equally sized. should I be worried, or not really? it started occurring after I received some cuts near my vaginal opening from intercourse, and a scratch somewhere on my labia minora.


What's the ugliest part of your body? Anonymous 3951[Reply]

Let's sent it some love!

I'll start: it probably is my knees, they're fat, are slowly becoming wrinkled and have a hump above them. One of them is square shaped because of surgery.

I love you knees, thank you for supporting my body and carrying me around!

The skin on the back of my torso, from my back to my lower back. I wish it were smooth and gorgeous, but nah, it's hairy, and has acne. Moisturizing body wash and using a lot more lotion seems to help, but I wish I could actually make it go away. I don't deal with acne of this sort anywhere else on my body, so idk why tf when designing my back God decided to go ham.

Anonymous 7062

I have a short neck and ugly shoulders.

Anonymous 7069

I have the same issue. I've switched up my skincare routine to involve more exfoliation on my back and I've started using a salicylic acid lotion on it too and I think it's improved a bit since I started about a week ago. I just hate how gross my skin looks back there. I want to it to be soft and pretty but god had to strike me down and foil my aspirations of feminine grace. Now I have to spend money to try to achieve the same beauty other girls have naturally.
I get acne on my face still too despite being almost 20. fml

my hair. my hairline is also fucked so i look like i have a 5head and i can't style it because it's short and thinning. i feel like an ogre sometimes

Anonymous 7624

Right now, I'm in an insecure phase.

Currently, I hate my small breasts, I feel disgusting and gross because I won't be able to work out this week, I hate my weight, my height, my skin for being dry and probably becoming wrinkly as shit soon because I smoke and drink, my legs for looking too toned as I wish they looked softer, my forehead because I feel like it's too large, my nose because it's too pointed and sharp, my fat fucking cheeks, my right-angle jawline, my lips for being too chapped all the time, my broad shoulders that make me look like a linebacker, a mutated male, my vagina for no real reason except I feel like it's gross, my "baby" shaped hands, and my body hair for being so prominent and dark. My eyes are also pretty gross as they're buggy.

I wish my body didn't exist. It's not nice to look at and works shittily. I have a crappy immune system and a broken vagina. People fucking lie to me when it's like, I know you're all fucking liars, I've been called ugly for the same features I've been called attractive for, I had a boyfriend who would lie by telling me how lovely my breasts were and then later say I should get implants, I wish people would stop commenting on my appearance.


personal color analysis? Anonymous 4938[Reply]

has any of you had a personal color analysis done? was it worth it? how much did it cost you?

I'm sort of intrigued but not sure I want to drop ~$200 on it…

It's all bullshit. I'm supposed to look good in grey and pale blue because I'm a light summer but actually it just brings out the redness in my face. and I'm supposed to look bad in black

No, I look good in every color.

Anonymous 5017


>I'm supposed to look good in grey and pale blue because I'm a light summer but actually it just brings out the redness in my face.
I think you might be fall, like darker warmth to subdue your complexion, not summer. You couldn't be summer at all if you have problems with redness in your skin becoming apparent when you wear pale blue, someone has told you wrong.

>and I'm supposed to look bad in black

You can't bring up black to knock color theory.
Every living thing on the planet looks good in black, it's an absence of light, your brain isn't getting as much information and so whatever it's perceiving is more stylized and simpler, hence 'better' and more striking.
It's why the "little black dress" safe choice exists at all.

How good does neutral work in a person with cool undertones? I want break out from the always-dark-blue but dont know where to start. Also, how to dress olive without looking like your overachieving career focused 37yo childfree cousin?

Anonymous 7623

Maybe use olive for accessories, like bags or scarves? Or style your clothes to look more modern and casual. Also, you could try a cool grey instead of dark blue for variation.


androgyne/tomboy fashion Anonymous 6802[Reply]

Would anyone be interested in an androgynous fashion thread? Some other (fem)anons and myself tried making a general for this on /fa/ but male anons shitposted it to death before it finally fell off the catalog, and someone in the vent thread suggested I try it here.

I have a bunch of hair and wardrobe inspo to dump but need to know if other people are interested first, heh.

Not as androgynous, more femme, but closer along my personal style, and enough tomboy to make straight men REEEE irl at me. I miss my curls. I wish I never started straightening my hair.

Why do you have an eating disorder? What is the motivation behind it? What goes through your head when the topic is food? How can you disregard hunger? What do you think of others when they eat a lot or express love for food? What do you think of fat people? What is your opinion on diets? Exercising?
And most of all,
Do you want to get better? Why does (at least with the cases i see) treatment rarely ever works?

Anonymous 7618

I dont know if this counts as an eating disorder, but I do alot of sports and have to force feed myself to get enough calories. I hate eating food, the thought of it makes me sick, but I do it anyway for the sake of athletic performance

Anonymous 7619

>Why do you have an eating disorder?
I don't think I have an eating disorder but I do forget to eat sometimes and find the act labor intensive. I also don't like pooping so more food just makes for more effort later. I do however like eating new varieties of food. I find eating novel things (especially sweet ones) to be an incredibly enjoyable experience, but I don't have the energy, time, want or knowledge to reinvent my weekly groceries to keep trying new things every single week.
>What is the motivation behind it?
I don't think I have a motivation as again, I'm not doing it intentionally I just forget sometimes and find eating unpleasurable most of the time.
>What goes through your head when the topic is food?
Is it new? Hope this tastes good. Have I had it before? Time to keep my body functioning.
>How can you disregard hunger?
I don't understand the question, but ignoring biological processes is incredibly easy to do. Disregarded your need to eat is only slightly different from forcing yourself to breathe slower and not immediately shitting yourself when you feel your bowels.
>What do you think of others when they eat a lot or express love for food?
Good for them if it's not obesity causing, and if it is obese causing, why do I care if they shave a few decades off their life?
>What do you think of fat people?
Chubby can be really cute. Normal fat people are nice to okay. Obese ones are disgusting.
>What is your opinion on diets?
Fad diets are just that, fads, and will disappear. I would say going by the original definition of a diet, anyone should add exercise into their routine with the diet. Else they'll just be low energy all the time and feel like shit in a different way indefinitely.

It's the opposite for me. I work out regularly and have to force myself to stop eating. I do eat healthy, but I'm such a sweettooth and can eat a lot of food before I really start to feel full regardless being high or not. Serving sizes are a joke.

Anonymous 7621

When I was bullimic I would eat because it brought me comfort. I was super depressed and eating was an escape for me. I would binge and then purge, or I would buy a ton of cheap junk food and chew it up and then spit it out behind a grocery store. It was absolutely disgusting.
I still do the chew and spit thing once in a while, but I rarely force myself to purge anymore.

junk food. I am addicted to it and often binge until I feel sick. I choose a lot of junk that makes me feel awful and aggravates my IBS, breaks me out and generally makes me lethargic. It makes my hard so much more difficult than it needs to be. some days I wake up and just eat 10 cookies instead of a normal breakfast. later I'd eat toast and then finish off the cookies. maybe later I'll eat a huge bag of crisps. I rarely eat fruit and veg. some days I will go on a health kick and drink green smoothies and forget the junk but the cravings and dislike of healthy food pulls me back.

in the past I've gone maybe a week without ANYTHING that my body reacts badly to (this includes all highly processed food including wheat) I felt great after those 7 days but couldn't keep it up unfortunately

nothing has helped me really but I'm going to try the journaling to observe my emotions thing another anon mentioned. I usually binge when I feel sad or bored, it's comfort eating I suppose.

I really want to be healthy and eat a balanced diet. I'm going to try and learn to cook (I have NO idea how to) and have a bunch of healthy meals I can turn so I can plan my meals because now the complete lack of structure is another reason I eat so poorly.

Anonymous 7315

I meant makes my life much harder than it needs to be especially the physical reactions

Anonymous 7512

Did you keep up the journaling? How did it go?

I use a memo feature in my scheduling app to keep a mostly-daily journal where I jot down what emotions I'm feeling and/or physical things I notice (hungry, exhausted, etc.) I also try to take motes when I'm doing poorly and when I'm doing well.

It's really helping me become a better (read: functioning) person and deal with my self-control problems.

I'm one week away from six months sober. I wish I could just be normal and enjoy a drink but I'm crazy and alcohol brings out the crazy even more.

(And no soda stream bc other problems have me on a budget. I kind of forgot about it tbh because the supermarket near me has really cheap flavored soda water)

Anonymous 7615

im sortof in the same boat as you, my lifes so busy i just resort to fast food/junk, although i know its not an excuse as there are way busier people than me eating better than i ever do atm.
my question is, do any of you guys deal with sugar addiction? i finally kicked my soda habit, haven't had a soda in a whole year and dont miss it. i feel better and my skin doesn't break out as much. but i feel like im compensating for not getting the sugar soda would give me through other sugary drinks(juice or sweetened tea) or desserts when i really dont need to be eating that shit. should definitely start food journaling just to show myself the gross amounts of sugar im probably eating.


Breast Implants/General Plastic Surgery Anonymous 3999[Reply]

Does anyone here have breast implants? How did they affect your life? Do they hurt? Do they even feel like your own body? Has anyone here ever considered a boobjob?

Do most men consider fake breasts normal now? More and more young girls are getting them and male oriented media is dominated by women with implants. I’m pretty sure most men can’t tell the difference.

All plastic surgery discussion is welcome. Please stay reasonable and open minded, and don’t try to talk others into stuff they don’t want.

I was born with what I have and I'm learning to live with it. After starting to see results a few years trialing anti-depressents and group therapy sessions, I'm starting to think people who get cosmetic surgeries (outside of a genuine deformity) have some sort of mental illness not being treated. My compulsive hate of myself and urges to change have gone away almost entirely, other than the occasional thought that passes I'm able to observe and let go of. Obviously this is vague, but after the work I've gone through, I'm starting to see common thought patterns between the old me, and those I meet that are considering going under the knife.

I guarantee this thread I probably have the least attractive breasts, far apart, sagging, yet very small, but they don't cause me any problems (as of now). I rarely get breast pain, I don't get a large portion of underboob sweat like my friends, no swelling, rare soreness, and no back pain. I'm sure they'll perform their basic function if I had a baby as well. Many are not so lucky, and I should be thankful. I've had guys make fun of my breasts, one tell me he wouldn't be with me unless I got silicone implants. I'm alone now, much happier.

I can't tell anyone to not do it, but at least be safe. Very little research has ever been done on implants, the FDA passed them without really doing long extensive testing on patients. Recent studies have been published that textured implants cause cancer. Read about "Breast Implant Illness." While not an officially recognized diagnosis, women who are predisposed to other auto-immune disorders have had a number of symptoms that caused inflammation until their implants were removed. Almost all women, supportive of surgery or not, with implants, agree that they are restrictive of breathing. Cons considered, it's not worth it. Health is more important. Breast implants, to me, are no different than those who risk blindness to change their eye color. My skin on my chest, and my eyesight are not replaceable.

Anonymous 7562

Good on you anon, that is really inspiring.

Anonymous 7591

I have implants. Got them because I was worried about how broad my shoulders were in comparison to my A-Cup breasts. They really are only for if you want to impress other people. No plastic surgery will "fix you" and make you okay with yourself, however, if you're honest with yourself, that you're doing it for other people. They're alright. They look great but it's a 100% true they feel different and are obviously different when groped. Only slightly though as long as you didn't go full retard size wise.

All in all if you want it go for it, but it won't solve your problem. Shits expensive and will feel different. You get used to it though.

"Quality men".
Most of guys dripping for those Insta girls are pieces of shit.
It's all about money.
If you want a man for money, save yourself 5 grand and get big tits.
Date empty scum bags.
Be an empty scumbag yourself.
Loving real men and women, that's what keeps you away from scum like this. And even then, most "real" people are also scums.
I'm happy to have found my GF 2 years ago, we are the 1% of the 1%.
We hate living in the same world as most of those scumbags.

Anonymous 7611

Hate when some huge girls whine about their size. I wish I was huge so I could live my breasts to compensate all of their hate.

That being said, I have mixed feelings about fake breasts. They look beautiful when the girl is wearing clothes and that's how most of people would see me, so I guess it's ok. The problem is when you're naked, I guess I would feel insecure if some guy asked me "why did you get implants" or something like this.

Mostly agree with >>7505 Some of the looks I've seen under the "soft girl" tags on instagram are honestly ugly, but pastels and more girly looks have been my aesthetic long before this trend started. Got me more out of my comfort zone when it comes to showing skin as well.

Was there any bleeding the first time you had sex? Have you ever used tampons/masturbated/had some form of penetration before that? Does age have to do with it (i.e. hymen wearing away over time)?

Anonymous 7318

I was in my early twenties my first time. It hurt a bit but I wouldn't call it painful. It felt like I expected it to, I guess. But I was pretty comfortable at the time. I had never used tampons or really inserted anything substantial into myself before. I don't recall bleeding afterwards.

Anonymous 7319

I didn't bleed at all (I was 20). I used tampons before I started having sex, but I could never fit a dildo up there (still can't unless I recently had sex either).
I do believe that the hymen does wear away over time, but I think it was more due to my tampon use than anything else

Anonymous 7453

2 or 3 drops of blood afyerwards and that was it.
I almost thought that we didn't do something right because we really didn't understand how himen works. Still thought it will 'break' at some point.I was 14 he was 16 and we've been together for about a year, lost virginity to each other.
It makes me laugh now about how young we were.

Anonymous 7540

I was coming off my period when I lost mine (I'm a really light flow anyway) so if I did I wasn't sure to the extent. I bled the second time too when I was fully off my period but that was a lot rougher than the first time. I think it can take a few goes sometimes to fully break it because you'll be more nervous your first time than your second.

Anonymous 7586

I've only had sex once and it was really painful. I didn't bleed the night it happened but I did bleed a little bit in the days after.

I did masturbate and never experienced bleeding that way. I'd also worn tampons, but they're about the same size/smaller than what I would use to penetrate myself.
