Lubrication: Generally speaking your normal female lubrication should prevent soreness. "outercourse is probably just as important as intercourse" consider positions and type of sexual activity. Aqueous based sexual lubricants can help. Soreness after sex is due to swelling from friction. Advil or aleve (naproxen) will help; however I suggest abstaining from sexual contact for a 1 week period. Gyn if symtoms persist. ...Read more

I want to know why it is wrong to apply pure white vinegar and two eggs nonoxynol-9 inside the vagina.
No need, why do it?: Nonoxynol-9 before sex is a spermicide contraceptive but not very effective; always use with condom. Repeated or frequent N9 can be harmful. Why egg whites or vinegar? What are you trying to treat? Douching (vaginal wash) with vinegar (or anything else) is not necessary for cleanliness, doesn't help health, often is harmful. Ignore family, friends and folklore about vaginal health; get MD advice. ...Read more

Petrol jelly only: Helps as a barrier for the surfaces that happen to be hurting or irritated. IT does help to lubricate and moisten the area as well. As far as I know, it does not cause any significant chemical reaction to the mucosal surface of the vagina or vulva. For cuts it may be best to use Sitz baths and Hazel Tucks (witch hazel) pads.

I began applying Clindamycin 1% top lotion 2 days ago on back & face. Now my vagina is itching terribly. Could the med be the cause? No issues before.
Yeast infection?: Your symptoms suggest yeast infection, and sometimes yeast problems are triggered by antibiotics. However, probably not this time: it's unlikely enough clindamycin is absorbed through the skin; and 2 days is too soon. Best see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Or try an OTC yeast treatment (look for active ingredient ening in "azole"), but for sure see doc if it doesn't help in a few days. ...Read more
