YAY for LJ.....and soreness/thrush update

I just wanted to say a big 'Thank you' to LJ - I have been using a Lunette for nearly 2 years now and had found that sometimes towards the end of my cycle I was either a bit 'irritated' or 'thrushy' down there. Whilst I was even worse when I used to use tampons, I had thought this was just something I'd have to put up with.

I'm a bit of a clean-freak and would scrub my cup most evenings with a disinfecting handwash and toothbrush. Anyhow, after reading some posts on over-washing of the cup in soap solutions and how chemical residues might upset the delicate pH balance of the vag, I have tried this cycle with just washing it in hot water...and guess what?! I have just finished my cycle with NO soreness/irritation/thrush or anything!!! YAY!!!

So for anyone with anything like I had... I suggest to stop over-washing your cup!! :p

Thanks again LJ!
