  • irritation

    hello
    i am new here and have been reading a lot of the posts which are very informative. about a week ago my husband and i had intercourse and i have been irritatated ever since. everything is sore....i'm feeling a combination of itching, burning, soreness, etc. i have been taking baths, using cold compresses and also a 1 percent hydrocortisone cream. at the beginning i used A & D ointment which seemed to cause swelling. i'm not sure if i should see my doctor or just give it some more time. everytime i think it is getting better, it starts up again. maybe i am doing too much and irritating it more?
    thanks
    sue

    • Legallyprotected,

      I can't say for sure, but it sounds like it might be a yeast infection or vaginitis. I've had them a few times and my symptoms were like those described:constant itching, burning, and soreness. I know that drinking cranberry juice helps with yeast, not sure how. But you should get checked by your doctor to be sure before trying any medications.

      • hi welcome abroad

        I used to get it so bad its a yeast infection

        but not as much now once a month after my period's
        and when it was bad one i went to the doctors

        they gave me some oral thrush cream and a pill
        and the doctor says to eat plenty of yogurts,garlic

        cranberry juice just avoid surgury foods.



        best to see the doctor, good luck with it

        • Yes get to the doctor asap. You may have a STD. Not saying you do, just saying its best to get diagnosed by a doctor, especially if you are having those symptoms. good luck.

            You're not dumb to love someone like this - we feel what we feel, and it can't really be helped. I do think it's important to be real with yourself about...

            I can't imagine using a crystal dildo but I would definitely buy one I found particularly beautiful (whether I displayed it or not).

            I don’t think I’d want to use any porous material like crystal (or wood, or anything organic) as an internal sex toy. But it might be a fun thing...

            I don’t think you’re dumb — people fall in love every day with folks who will break their hearts for one reason or another.
