This is embarrassing! Am I going to get sick!? Be nice, I'm really embarrrassed. adult content

So I have had really bad stomach issues lately. It was so bad that I couldn't get to the bathroom in time....ugh. Anyway, it was everywhere down there. Inside my vagina and on the outside. I cleaned up as best I could, but I'm worried if I could get an infection from it, or if there is anything I can do to prevent it.

  • Strictly speaking , yes, the presence of fecal matter in the vagina can produce an infection. Not a particularly serious one, but enough so you dont really want to make a practice of it. A douche may help clean any remaining bacteria. I would not stress too much though. The vagina itself has the amazing ability to push things out, not back in. It has self-cleaning properties, if you will. YOu are probably fine, but if it would make you feel cleaner (and it might) then use a douche and take a long bath when you get home!

    Good luck!

  • As long as you cleaned up well you should be fine. Little baby girls get poop everywhere when they are still in diapers and they don't get sick.

  • You'll most likely be totally fine. Try not to worry.

  • You should be fine as long as you cleaned it all up. It might cause some minor irritation but it shouldn't cause any infection unless it went into your urethra and then you may contract a UTI. Good luck! It has happened to me before.

  • As long as you cleaned up- and you get a bath or shower as soon as you can, I wouldnt worry too much. Hope your tummy gets better soon.

  • Hop in a warm bath for just a short while. Everything will be fine. You are not alone, this happens some times. Hugs....

  • I think you'll be fine but maybe a good hot shower would help insure you don't get a bladder infection. The #1 bacteria that causes UTI's (bladder infections) is E.coli which is naturally found in your colon-hence your bowel movements.

  • you should be fine since you cleaned up but you can always take a long vinegar bath to help it out, or if you have a sitz tup use it.

  • No you should be fine.Make sure you clean your down their areas very well.

    It would be just like when a baby girl happens to them. It happens to the best of us.
