  • Coconut oil for perineum massage- IC safe?

    Hi All!
    I haven't been on this board in a long time as I have seemed to be able to manage my IC symptoms, thank goodness.
    Now that I am pregnant though I do have a question. I have Sjogren's syndrome and IC. My vaginal area is very dry and have heard about doing perineum massage to moisturize and stretch this area before child birth. Was wondering whether coconut oil would irritate my bladder if my massaged in the vaginal area? I think I can remember reading somewhere that it had anti bacterial properties. Has anybody heard anything similar or had experiences using coconut oil? Would love to hear from you.

    Hi,

    I have vulvodynia and use H2O lube in order to do the massage exercises that my PT gave me for vulvodynia. I wouldn't use anything else.
