|First Official Post: Self-Care
||[Nov. 2nd, 2008|08:29 am]
Hello! I'm dealing with something slightly uncomfortable right now. You see, at this very moment, there's a tampon soaked in tea tree oil inside me. It's diluted almost to nothing with water though...because, I'm not trying get vaj blisters (or burns). Recently I have been (self-)diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis. There's an overproduction of one bacteria and less of the good kind.
You can get all the info on it right here:
Home treatments include tea tree oil and yogurt with live cultures! The yogurt: if it's plain, apply directly to affected area. If not? Eat it. So! I'm doing both. We'll see what happens. There's just like a constant tingling and cool feeling inside me right now. Like my peppermint soap. Or menthol...but if I used menthol I would DEFINITELY get a burnt vaj.
I didn't think I had BV, but everyone over at vaginapagina agrees that I do! Going to my first gyno appointment in a few days. Ah.
This isn't the sexy type of sex post I wanted to launch off with. Actually...self-care is sexy and awareness is sexy.
Let's get busy!
