Is it ok for me to put coconut oil on my vagina?? Does it have any benefits??

Why?: It is likely ok as long as there is no other additive in it. I don't see why you would need lubricant at your age however. The one who benefits is the person you buy the oil from. ...Read more

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. I suggest careful washing with baby soap to remove any remnants and then use Benadryl and topical 1% hydro cortisone to the external vaginal area. See your GYN on Monday. 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

Caneston burns my vagina, can oregano oil be a good alternative for thrush?

No.: Symptoms of a yeast infection are vaginal itching and a cottage cheese-like discharge. If you have already treated your vaginal yeast infection with canestan (clotrimazole) and your symptoms have not disappeared, it may not actually be a yeast infection. You might consider visiting your doctor to determine if there is a different diagnosis. Oregano oil will not treat a yeast infection. ...Read more
