Can condoms cause infections?
Yeah, I was diagnosed with vaginal strep or something on January 4th I believe. I took the anti-biotics which took care of it. Of course, the anti-biotics gave me a yeast infection which I then had to treat with a one-day thing, and I did. It appeared to go away.
But now I feel like I may have a yeast infection though this is milder than both the strep and the yeast infection the anti-biotics gave me (so far, of course. Also I still don't have any thick, cottage cheese discharge I always hear of) and have been having sex in the time between the original infection seemed to be cured and having what I do now. Now I was told that something could trigger the vaginal strep and I had wondered if it was the kind of condom we started using (I seemed to only get after we switched) and if it is maybe why I'm feeling what it is I have now. Or could it be an effect of BC pills? I'm still on my first ever pack of that.
Anyway I just wanted to know if anybody had any idea. I suppose the yeast infection treatment possibly didn't suffice. It could be anything, but none of this ever happened until we switched condoms.
Can anybody help?
