I was fitted for a diaphragm on Monday (which was not for me). The next day I went to the bathroom and had this annoying itch. I've never had an itch in my vaginal area before and it is very annoying. I've been using Vagisil wipes to help ease the itching, is there anything else I can use? I also recently changed from the pill to the patch, it says not to use the patch until the Sunday after your menstrual cycle, but I haven't been on my pills for almost 3 weeks. What should I do about the patch? Do I use it before my period or do I have to wait?View Thread
Dear Jane, Thank you for answering my questions. I have to speak with my GYN about my patches, it's driving me crazy because I have the patches and I'm not sure if to wait to have a flow or just go ahead and put it on and wait for my period to start. And the itching has subsided since I have been using a 3 day treatment for the yeast infection. Again, thank you very much for answering my questions. Sincerely, WhitneyView Thread
I've recently had abnormal bleeding a week after my period, and now I'm 5 days late to start. When I had the abnormal bleeding I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I'm really worried and my boyfriend keeps asking me what I think is wrong with me, and the only answer I can give him is I'm not sure. What can the late period be from?View Thread
