I have been keeping an eye on things "down there" since I took the last ring out, had my period, then put the new ring in. BAM - after 3 days, more irritation and discharge. I don't know if the ring is the sole cause of me getting recurrent yeast/irritation, but it's definitely contributing to it. My body apparently does NOT like having it up there. But I love not having to worry about getting pregnant... I really don't want to give it up *especially if it's not the cause*! Seems like it doesn't matter what I do, I'm just prone to getting yeast infections and discharge at any time and frequently. The doctors can't give me an answer either. I'm taking probiotics and I try to keep everything clean and dry down there when I can. Blah! Its kinda depressing! I don't know what else to do at this point. With it being so hot here, I sweat like crazy. That's kinda unavoidable (even when using powder and such!).
