  • lubricants and irritation

    I find that it helps to use a lube when attempting intercourse. However, I also get frequent vaginal yeast infections. I read an article, in Cosmo of all places, that says lubes with glycerin can cause yeast infections because of the sugar in the glycerin. This makes sense to me because I kept telling my doctor that I get them after sex, but my partner doesn't have yeast infections. He said it was coincidence, but the lube thing makes sense to me. Has anyone else encountered this? Do you know of a place to purchase glycerin free lube? Every product I have looked at contains glycerin.

      I also have problems w/ yeast and just general irritation from lubes...I now use FemGlide...I can't find it anywhere in stores, but if you google FemGlide you will easily find an online reputable pharmacy that sells it. It is glycerin free and available in BIG pump bottles for a good price. Shipppng usually free if you purchase it in the big bottle. Hope this helps. best wishes,Bri
