Can you get an infection from your vibrator? I clean it after every use but my vagina is on fire and itches so bad what could it be? Yeast infection?

I always get some type of vaginal infection even if I use protection, why?

My bf comes home every 6months. Everytime, I get a yeast infection after a week of sex. I've been checked & im clean. How can I stop this?

Frequent sex: When intercourse occurs episodically (q6months) but "feverishly", the vaginal ph (acidity/alkalinity) changes and the good bacteria (doderlein's) that are responsible for keeping the pH slighly acid (4.5 to 5.5) cannot recover fast enough since semen is alkaline in nature. Yeast like warm moist alkaline conditions, so keep the vulvar area dry and wear cotton underclothing post-sex. ...Read more

Me and my bf never use protection but the LAST two time I got a yeast infection and those were my first time gettin them out of my 22years of living?

Make sure it's yeast: Yeast infections usually are not caught from partners. We all carry yeasts normally, and apparently new infections are just increased growth of yeasts already present. Are you sure it's yeast? Has it been professionally diagnosed? If not see doctor ASAP; or if main symptoms are discharge or odor or if at risk for STD (e.g. if your relationship is new, or if either of you has had other partners). ...Read more
