On Actually Ask a Nurse

@Third Wave Housewife Thank you thank you thank you! I also had a terrible uti last month (and bv too yay!). The infection was (to quote the doctor), "quite aggressive and spreading to [my] kidneys...possibly fatal." then I kind of blanked for awhile because of the pain. After that, I started taking a cranberry supplement everyday and peeing immediately after sex. Again, thank you so much! You will most likely be getting an email from me. I've had to seek out all of my sex info, mostly from teh interwebs and experiences of my friends. Ah, the benefits of growing up in the Bible Belt.

On Actually Ask a Nurse

@Third Wave Housewife I have a theory that I'm allergic to latex and that was causing my vagina to be like WTF shiz goin cray-cray. But yes, started using polyisoprene condoms, and life is not as itchy or burn-y. I am just freaking out because I waited until i was "ready" to lose my v-card, which for me meant age 23. And now I have to deal with this grossness that my abstinence-only non-sex education didn't prepare me for. Also, I just lost my health insurance so I really can't afford for things to go badly. Oh, and speaking of lube, do you have any suggestions for a sensitive lady with sensitive ladyparts? It took me forever to get my dude friend to stop using this terrible strawberry stuff that made me itch just from smelling it...also wtf strawberry flavored/ smelling genitals...ew.

On Actually Ask a Nurse

Dearest Nurse, What is up with BV? Why does no one know exactly what causes it? Why does it reoccur? Is there any lifestyle change (besides abstinence) I can make to prevent it from reoccurring? I was diagnosed with it last month and did the whole antibiotic gel thing, but now i'm freaking out that it's only a matter of time before I get it again. I feel like I'm going crazy right now with probiotics and prayer...am I just kidding myself? Are my ladyparts just gonna have to suffer for the rest of my life?

On Where Did You Learn to Talk Like That?

@wee_ramekin In elementary school, 'yankee' was the worst insult you could call someone, though (I kid you not) when I was nine a girl called me a 'scalawag' when I said the north didn't seem so bad. I'm still hurtin' over that one...and slightly confused. However, my granddaddy's half-brother told me that I should find me "a rich, yankee boy" to marry when I went away to college, so I guess yankees are okay as long as they're rich and looking for a bride? I don't know. I'm real sorry someone tried to hurt your feelings.

Lynchburg, VA is my hometown. Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson are the examples...womp womp. Yes, my accent is Southern...Southern hick. It's adorable and not at all annoyin', she says with a smile and a twinkle in her eyes. Praise Jesus.

On Teenagers Getting Chaster

@kayjay yeah...a certain club at my college liked to advertise the stat that only 49% of the students were having vaginal sex, but they would present it as that's the only kind of sex ever. A lot of awkward kids went to my college but lots more sexing than 49%.
