TMI! Can a sex toy cause a vaginal infection if not cleaned properly?

My husband and I were fooling around the other day and he decided to use a toy but I didn't realize the one he picked still needed to be cleaned but it had already been used and ever since my vagina has been red and irritated and I have washed very well but it's still a little raw and itchy, and it hasn't even been a full week yet.. so I'm worried about it but too embarrassed to ask my doctor! Please help.. Thank you!

  • Yeah, that can happen.

    Go to your doc, she/he will make you feel better. And don't be embarassed. You think you're the only person who ever had a little sexual mishap? ^_^ It's not going to phase the doc, trust me.

    Good luck.

  • I'm sure it is possible.

    Go to the doctor if you think you have an infection. If you are embarrassed you don't have to tell the doctor HOW you got the infection, lol.

  • why not just get a "check up" from your dr and not tell him what you think could have caused it.. he may still be able to diagnose whats going on down there but yes bacteria on something that is then inserted into a vagina can cause infection
