Allergic to condoms?
Posted on: 03/28/2011
I'm 20 years old and I'm allergic to latex condoms. I just had sex using polyisoprne condoms and I been having a white milky discharge, little odor and the lips of my vagina have been a little swollen a few days. I have no pain but the discharge feels uncomfortable. What can it be or is it an STD? Am I allergic to polyisoprne condoms too?
You can be allergic to this type of condom also, but you would have a lot more itching rather than a discharge. If the symptoms have not gone away, talk to your doctor to see if you have a yeast or bacterial infection. An STD is less likely. You can also see your dermatologist and perform "patch testing" to find out exactly what you are allergic to. They can even test different condoms to find one that you can use without a problem. Good luck!
