Thrush?!

Postby xdddx » Wed Sep 16, 2009 1:53 pm

I lost my virginity a few days ago, I was fine when it happened although it did cause me some pain and it also hurt my stomach during intercourse.
After this I was fine but I'm now experiencing an "itchy vagina" and it's really uncomfortable.
I'm not sure why this has happened, because I've never experienced anything like this before!
I didn't use a condom during sex but I'm on the pill and I know my partner hasn't got any STI's or STD's as we were both virgins.
I think it may be thrush! because we used moisturiser instead of lube, I know it was dumb.
But do you think this could have affected the PH Balance in my vagina?
I have purchased some cream for the itchiness, but do I need anything for the internal problems?
But I'm also worried that my period wont come and I'll get pregnant.
How long is it normally before you come on your period after your 7 day break?
Because mine varies and I'm now worried :|

Are you 100% sure your boyfriend is a virgin? Hopefully he isn't lying to you about that.

I suspect you're right about the moisturiser thing, I very much doubt that did you any good at all! It's a very sensitive area and one you should be very careful with in future. Make sure you buy some lube now so that next time you have some incase you need it.

Are you experiencing any discharge too? There's often discharge with thrush. What cream are you using for the itchiness?

I usually come on about 3-4 days after stopping taking my pill for the 7 day break, but I know that hugely varies from person to person. If you have been taking it every day at the same time, the chances of you being pregnant are tiny.

ARGH I lost my reply to you. I'd basically said what Ragdoll had said; how can you be sure that your boyfriend is a virgin? It's just his word.

Vagisil treats thrush I think. You could always go to the chemists and ask in their or make an appoinement with the docotors to find out.

Oh yeh, I meant to say - if this itchiness etc. continues you will have to bite the bullet and visit the doctor.

Go to any chemist and get an over the conunter treatment like canestan. The oral one only tablets work really well and teh cream is great fro the itching. Try not to scratch.
It is very likely to be the moisturiser but yopu don't even need to tell the pharmacist what you did to get it
And get some lubricant whilst your there

I don't think he'd lie to me about it and I've told him about what's happened.
I've got some vagasil cream, I've been reading on the internet that using natural yoghurt is good.
So I might try that to stop the itchiness inside!
I just hope I have my period now, to stop all this panic.
Thank you for the replies :)

Natural yogurt is good but messy and if you don't like the smell of yogurt it's horrible.
Diflocan is the best it's one tablet and it is all gone within 24 hours but it cost £13 ish
If you have taken your pill properly you shouldn't have to worry about being pregnant but it's always best to use a condom aswell if you are not ready for the consequences as the pill isn't 100% and if you get sick, diahorrea or take antibiotics it doesn't work for 14 days

Natural yoghurt is said to be good, but there's no medical proof to back it up.

why are you so worried about being pregnant? Have you forgotten to take one or something?

I think I'm going to try the natural yoghurt theory.
I've been looking it up on Google and a lot of people have said it's helped them a lot.

Also, Is it normal for the itchiness to get worse at night?
Because I was fine earlier when I applied the cream, then I had a shower (I didn't use anything but water "down there")
& I applied the cream straight after and now I feel irritated again :S

It might be just that you're hotter, that often makes itchiness worse.

And make sure you are wearing cotton knickered or that will make it worse
