  • Luvena

    Hi! So I'm in a terrible flare brought on by sex, and have a question. I bought one of the lubricants on this site-- Luvena. I'm not saying that I think it caused my flare, but I'm kinda surprised that it has cranberry in it. I know it's different than drinking cranberry juice, but does anyone else think that might not be helping? I've come a long way almost in remission with diet changes, but now that I'm in menopause, it's frustrating that this one area is the thing I can't seem to conquer.

    Something ingested is not the same as skin contact. I am violently allergic to tomatoes, but I can peel and slice them for family with no problem. I can also handle cranberries with no problem as long as I don't eat them.

    I hope you'll be out of this flare quickly.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe

      Thanks for that great illustration, Donna. Whenever I'm in a bad flare I start second guessing everything. It helps to hear a voice of reason.
