Late 30s. Can I somehow avoid C-section for this and the 2 next pregnancies I'm hoping for? Really want to labor & have vaginal delivery for my babies
VBAC: If you've never had a c-section, then unless there is trouble during delivery then vaginal birth should be expected. If you've had a previous c-section then there is controversy about following deliveries and the safety of a vaginal birth. Many obs will default for repeat c-sections because the risk of uterine rupture and other serious complications are high in subsequent pregnancies. ...Read more

Hard to know: "germs" are generally bacteria, which are everywhere and are, for the most part, normal and harmless. Depending upon what the wipes contain they may slightly reduce surface contamination, but there are always millions of organisms left behind.

Two days ago I had rough sex (6 times)between 10pm and 7am. I've noticed now that when I wipe (wet baby wipes unscented)I have skin coming out. Normal?
Here's the "skinny": With such extensive rubbing of the labia during the "rough sex" the epithelial (skin) cells are abraded on the top layer and exfoliate. (come off). When that occurs the dermis (under layer of skin) try to rapidly replace the skin cells that have been removed (epithelialization). This is the normal process of skin replacement. ...Read more

Moist Paper Towels: Wet wipes out of a box can cause a distinct type of diaper rash, it looks like red "parentheses" around the anus, and there really isn't a brand that is totally safe from that. Every time in the past that a baby's treatment with creams failed, removing wet wipes helped, so now I just start by recommending cleaning with moistened paper towels. ...Read more

Baby wipes: It is all right to gently use baby wipes on the inner labia of the vaginal wall. You may want to use the sensitive wipes though and do not be aggressive.
