I am new here but was hoping to get some answers or see if anyone has been through this. My husband and I are TTC, we've had intercourse almost every day. Last time we had sex, two nights ago, I woke up with an itch down there. It kept getting worse and worse, got red, lots of burning that felt like it was spreading inside and around the vagina.. in a nutshell, it's very very uncomfortable, I was not able to sleep at all last night and today I am walking funny. I am trying the home remedies like washing the area with basil (boiled with water), I even got up and spread some cold yogurt in the middle of the night, and now I am just putting some cold packs down there.
It happened because, I think, my husband has been ejaculating inside me. We usually either use a condom or just use the pull out method. Is this normal? I am against medications and cremes so I'd like to stick to natural, home-made remedies. But should I be worried? Has this happened to either of you?
p.s. I usually wash/shower after sex so I am not sure if it's me not being clean enough...
