Hi, I am wondering if i may have a sensitivity to latex?
I have noticed that every time I have sex (during and after), I experience a buring, tight sensation. Its then a little sore when I go to the toilet straight after sex, but calms down quite quickly (afew hours) leaving slight itching, and sometimes a small amount of white discharge.
I know it is not an STD, as i do suffer from thrush, and have had this checked out by a doctor a couple of times who confirmed there was no other infection.Also I have only ever slept with my longterm currant partner, and although I am on the pill, we still always use condoms. Is it due to the latex condoms we use? They are not coated in spermicide. Or is there something else?
I wear latex gloves for work sometimes, and this doesnt cause irritation, but i do sometimes get ulcers after going to the dentist (latex gloves poking in my mouth!!)
Is there anything I can do to help the irritation? And what alternatives do I have to latex condoms, and where can I get them? (If you think this is what is causing the problem)
Thanks for your help.
