I am on my period right now, accompanied by awful bouts of diarrhea. Occasionally, when I wipe, somehow there will be poo residue close to my vag when I wipe to the front. [there will be poo on my toilet paper after I wipe, although I am not wiping so near my anus...Instead of a come hither motion when wiping the front, I go back with the tissue towards my bum so as to avoid any mixture of anal bacteria with vagina.] I am not sure as to why this happens, although I'm assuming that my poo is so fluid that it just kind of explodes all over everything. [Well, drips...] Does this happen to anyone else? Are you afraid of UTIs after wiping, or having a poo? What do you do if this happens? I took a shower and gently let warm water wash over my genitals and washed with a wet washcloth.
[Just wanted to also say thank you so much for all the help with my past posts:) I am thrilled to say that I have been off cipro for about half a week, and my symptoms have not returned!*squee!* [As they usually do!] I think it is due to the daily cranberry pills, and keeping harsh soaps and body washes away from my genitals and just letting mother nature+ water do their job! [As you all commented!] I can't talk to my mom about this kind of stuff because she is very, very conservative and gasps at the word 'vagina' or 'sex', so it is hard to find someone to ask specific questions about my problems. I am so thankful for a community like this that strengthens and gives confidence to anyone who has the gift of having a vagina:) Hope you are all having a wonderful week!]
Oh, and do you also pee before and after masturbation to avoid UTis?
