I used coconut oil for lubricant 5 days ago, and my vagina/vulva is burning, itchy, swollen, painful. I used monostat 1, and still feel uncomfortable.

Allergic reaction: I agree that you should never use coconut oil as a vaginal lubricant.

Stop th Monistst and use Sitz baths (2 lbs of epsom salts in 6-8 inches of warm water, for 15 minutes 3-4 times a day. ...Read more

Even silicone based lubes are better and less irritating than oil. This could be a yeast infection or reaction to the baby oil. I would see a gynecologist to determine which it is. ...Read more
