The much-anticipated vagina update

First off - thanks everyone for their hugs and comments. You guys really are amazing, don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise!!

Now, I know you were waiting with bated breath, so here it is. You may exhale. ;)

Doc says it's definitely not yeast, could be BV, but that he doesn't like giving antibiotics for mild cases. He did give me an rx, but suggested I try a vinegar and water d***he (I hate that word) one time, then to take acidophilus every day. If I still feel crummy, then I should fill the rx.

So I took his advice, very carefully made the solution myself (no Sum.mer's Ev.e for me thanks). And OMG. It frigging dried me out!! I woke up at 4:30 a.m. itching like CRAZY. Checked and there's hardly any CM or discharge at all. So I popped a Clar.itin for the itch and have been guzzling water, which sometimes helps with the moisture issue. At the moment I'm feeling somewhat better (knock on wood), but I am so paranoid that I screwed myself up even worse now... Oi...

So needless to say, we haven't been too actively TTC this month. I think we BDed a total of 3 times. Whatever. Hubs is extremely understanding of this stuff, thank goodness. I feel like we wasted a cycle, but at the same time I almost don't care either. It's weird. I have many thoughts on this that will have to wait for another time.

Hope everyone is having a good hump day. Only 2 more days until the weekend!

That doesn't sound like a good "cure" at all! Try drinking some greeen tea to increase your CM too if it really dried you up a lot.
