im still giggling at “how wet does your good good get?”
i use ‘good good’ in everyday conversation regularly, but never as a noun…for a vagina…never thought to. this is surely going to cause problems: i.e.
person A “how are you?
person B “im good thanks”
person A “good good”
person B “did you just say vagina at me?”
A yeast infection (Candida) is not caused by having to much sex, rather by not washing your genital regions properly or not washing/changing your underwear.
Summary: Bee is trying to show off a genital disease that is not caused by sex, but by lack of genital (or general) hygiene. Complete and utter fail.
Vaginal yeast infections occur when new yeast is introduced into the vaginal area, or when there is an increase in the quantity of yeast already present in the vagina relative to the quantity of normal bacteria. For example, when the normal, protective bacteria are eradicated by antibiotics (taken to treat a urinary tract, respiratory, or other types of infection) or by immunosuppressive drugs, the yeast can multiply, invade tissues, and cause irritation of the lining of the vagina (vaginitis).
Vaginal yeast infections can also occur as a result of injury to the inner vagina, such as after chemotherapy. Also, women with suppressed immune systems (for example, those taking cortisone-related medications such as prednisone) develop vaginal yeast infections more frequently than women with normal immunity. Other conditions that may predispose women to developing vaginal yeast infections include diabetes mellitus, pregnancy, and taking oral contraceptives. The use of douches or perfumed vaginal hygiene sprays may also increase a woman’s risk of developing a vaginal yeast infection.
A vaginal yeast infection is not considered to be a sexually transmitted infection (STD), since Candida may be present in the normal vagina, and the condition does occur in celibate women. However, it is possible for men to develop symptoms of skin irritation of the penis from a yeast infection after sexual intercourse with an infected partner.
I think the point Leira was making was yeast infections can be caused by many things besides poor hygiene, including too much or inappropriate hygiene (douches and such). I think it’s a legitimate distinction.
Though none of that takes away from the lameness of the post.
@anonanus: I’m sure it’s been mentioned before, but I knew a woman that would get yeast infections from too much sex. Any disruption in the ph balance down there could cause issues. It didn’t happen often, but it did happen and the doctor said that that was the cause.
She also got them from bubble baths… so some people just have delicate good goods, I guess.
As a fictionally trained medical professional, I have to concur with mcowles. Vaginal infections, bacterial or fungal (yeast), can have a multitude of causes including anything that can alter the delicate balance of one’s good good.
“@Leira79: Is that so different from what I said then? No need to get all Wikipedia on my ass. It is not caused by having too much sex, that was my point.”
Basically – you’re a tool. Perhaps you should have gone Wikipedia on your own ass before posting such a blatantly incorrect response and then arguing with Leira79 for correcting you.
Yeast infections most DEFINITELY CAN be caused by having sex. Sex can cause an increased presence of the natural yeast already there and can also introduce new or different yeast into the environment as well. Yeast infections actually CAN BE sexually transmitted – if a man comes into contact with a woman who has a yeast infection and then has contact with a woman who does not, he CAN spread the infection to the uninfected partner – even if he does not acquire the actual yeast infection himself (which is possible as well and a yeast infection can then be transmitted from unprotected sex after that also, just FYI.) Depending on the woman, having “too much sex” (which I think in regards to the poster above she is having more sex than usual) can cause a yeast infection by disrupting the natural vaginal environment. This in no way implies that because a woman is having sex more often than normal the reason she would get a yeast infection is that she has been unhygienic – it could actually imply the exact opposite. If she were showering more than normal because of the sex, this alone could change the normal amount of naturally occurring yeast and bacteria in the vaginal area.
Just SOME of the common causes of yeast infections are: taking antibiotics, chemicals such as dye or perfumes, tight or restrictive clothing, spermicides such as nonoxynol-9 (which is typically found on condoms), a high yeast diet (including consuming a lot of beer), pregnancy, hormonal changes (also caused by taking oral contraceptives), injury to the vaginal lining (such as small tears caused by lack of lubrication and friction), using soaps that are too harsh or contain perfumes or dyes, using sex toys that were not properly cleaned after the previous use, douching, and a whole lot more. Simply put – anytime the vaginal environment changes in any way for whatever reason there is a chance that a yeast infection WILL occur. There is only a very, VERY small chance that hygiene is a factor since the vagina is self-cleaning and naturally controls the amount of yeast and bacteria present normally.
So basically…in order for poor hygiene paired with sexual activity to really be a factor in a yeast infection occurring in a woman, it would be because the man were the unhygienic party involved if he has any type of intimate contact with an infected partner and moves on to another partner without properly washing his hands or genitals before moving on. Your original post was absolutely absurd and according to you the only reason a woman would ever acquire a yeast infection is that she doesn’t change her underwear or clean herself properly or often meaning that all women who get a yeast infection are dirty. That’s absolute BS – yeast infections are extremely common, easy to acquire, and nothing fun to deal with. As a very hygienic woman who also happens to be an RN, I felt compelled to correct your ignorance – and I didn’t even need Wikipedia to do it.
**And I know I’m going to be called out for writing such a technical response, but it was necessary to show just how very wrong his response was!!! Call me lame or whatever you feel like calling me – I won’t apologize for not being an ignorant asshat.**
Feel like I just had an unwanted ambush seminar titled “your vagina and you” lol, jk Chrissy
mcowles and later commentors are correct. Anything upsetting that delicate ph balance can cause yeast infection. Sex with multiple partners can increase the risk of contracting one. Sometimes certain bath products can be enough to cause a problem, as can antibiotics and medications.
@Chrissy: I read your post with amusement. I give you my apologies. I indeed have no medical qualifications of significance to be discussing it. I’ll admit I’m a tool but to call me ignorant would be a bridge to far.
Although I shouldn’t, I feel the need to explain. I lived in a squat for several years, yeast infections (or other) in genital regions ocurring several times a month. After having a problem in her vaginal region, my best friend consulted a doctor. I was with her at the time, and the doctor told her that due to not washing her underwear, not washing herself properly and sleeping in a filthy bed she had developed a yeast infection.
Henceforth my response, and my mistake. I tend to have no faith in governmental institutions and such, but I do have the tendency to believe doctors. The doctor that my best friend saw tht day obviously was an alternative lifestyle hating, -no doubt- sexist pig, that tried to insult her whilst she only wanted to know what was going on with her. He indeed should’ve said that she should’ve stopped wearing tight leather pants and consuming a gallon of beer a day.
I hereby acknowledge that in my original post I should’ve put ‘as far as I know, which is not much’.
Thank you for correcting me, I will not forget your explanation. I firmly stand by the fact that I’m a tool.
At what point did we decided that absolutely NOTHING was TMI?? I always thought there was this line, but all these people either don’t care about crossing the line or just can’t see the line…or something. maybe we need to make the line brighter, or illuminate it somehow…or make a Braille line for the sight impaired. Maybe we just need to “redraw” the line?
@Anonanus – My use of the term ignorance was meant only as it’s actual definition being the lack of knowledge about something. I was not implying that you are ignorant – just lacking the knowledge about the subject and I apologize for my wording implying that I was referring to you as being ignorant. Judging by your original post and your responses after, you seemed to have a strong conviction to stand by your response to the subject – which implies that you felt strongly that your reply was absolutely correct. Actually, I find you quite intelligent based on the way you express yourself – something nice to see in posts like these.
You are correct in thinking that perhaps the doctor treating your friend was probably attempting to insult your friend by being an ass, and depending on her level of personal care, her problems could have been caused by his reasons to a degree – but that’s a very thin possibility.
While I do stand by my original feeling that you are most likely a tool, you do seem to have potential.
@mistaphill – only people NOT getting laid say that other people DO need to get laid.
@Allygirl – there is a difference in being completely ignorant and ignorance regarding something – which was the point of my second post to him. I didn’t say he was ignorant referring to him as being stupid, I said “I felt compelled to correct your ignorance”. That means to educate someone about something they are not educated about therefore making them no longer ignorant about that topic. Kind of like the way I just educated you about the differences in using the terms “ignorant” and “ignorance”.
Your attempts to sound eloquent and intelligent are both pathetic and undermine any arguments you think you have. I suggest speaking normally and not trying to use words whose meanings you don’t understand (such as “henceforth” and “ignorance”, to name but two).
@lamegirl – I would have thought that instead of calling anyone “pathetic” for using good grammar, as a female (which I am assuming you are), you might have been glad that someone intelligent argued the fact that someone was claiming that women *only* get yeast infections because they don’t wash their underwear, clean themselves, and are just basically nasty people. But instead, you found it more rewarding to call me out for having a vocabulary that goes beyond 4 letter words…nice.
Back when I was an exotic dancer, the girls used to get yeast infections all the time. The Dr told us it was from sliding up and down the polls with out them being cleaned between girls. We went to our stage manager and the busboys had to clean them between sets…no more yeast infections.
@ Dr. Hymen…do I count as being fictionally trained in the medical profession from my excessive watching of House?
@Lamegirl…sometimes people just talk like that. I’m always being told I’m a rather articulate person, though its not an active choice on my part. Plus,if you do have a varied and flowery vocabulary why not show it off? Its much more impressive than people showing off any physical attributes they may be lucky enough to possess.
Again…the only people who say other people need “a good banging” are those not getting laid themselves. And besides, what about me being intelligent should imply that I would need the apparent stress relief of sex anyways?
I’m not PREACHING at anyone. AGAIN PEOPLE – AS A WOMAN I FOUND THE NEED TO CLARIFY THE ACTUAL REASON WOMEN GET YEAST INFECTIONS AND THAT POOR HYGIENE AND DIRTY UNDERWEAR IS NOT THE PRIMARY CAUSE WE GET THEM. FOR SOME DIRTY HOOKERS, YES, BUT TO ASSUME THAT ALL WOMEN WHO HAVE A YEAST INFECTION IS DIRTY IS NOT ONLY WRONG, IT’S OFFENSIVE. Instead of claiming I need to be laid because I know the right answer and can express it in an intelligent manner, maybe more of you should have found my response educational.
Even if I were in need of getting laid, if there’s one thing this post should teach everyone is getting “banged” at random can lead to a YEAST INFECTION!
STOP ARGUING WITH CHRISSY she is tryign to make a point, LEAVE HER ALONE. gosh yall cant handle being corrected or learning something new everyday. just cuz u might not be in school doesnt mean ur smart enough. i hate it when ppl get all worked up for no reason except that they have too much time on their hands to be arguing with someone they dont kno.
A new low in retart spew. Is nothing private anymore, do we as a society need to express everything that happens in our lives to everyone we know? Just because it happened, doesn’t mean everyone wants to know about it. What ever happened to ‘too much information’? It’s time to make some bumper stickers, “We don’t care, keep your torrential period stories and commentary on how you abuse your vibrator to yourself.”
Damn, a person goes to a bar, returns, and then receives a serious reminder there is a time difference…
@Chrissy: I knew you’d be appreciative to my apology, thank you for giving me my first online wink .
@lamegirl: Why would sounding eloquent and intelligent undermine any arguments we would have? It’s something almost all dictators, presidents, politicians, doctors, and last but not least, self-considerate people do. Does it make a point less valid? No, it doesn’t. It just makes people that don’t give a fuck about listening/reading not to bother, which is exactly what is meant by using eloquent language. Think twice, twat (meant as advice not as insult).
@Spanka: Lovely comment, I’d love to have an imagination like yours, you made me laugh twice.
@Chrissy in #59: Call me compulsive, but ‘ALL WOMEN … IS DIRTY’ should be either ‘ALL WOMEN … ARE DIRTY’ or ‘EVERY WOMEN THAT HAS … IS DIRTY’. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Good to see that there are people who feel the need to correct people when they’re wrong, it makes my day. When there would be no-one correcting the other, this world would be even in more shit. Online or offline, please do try to correct people if they’re wrong in your opinion, it -eventually- makes the world a better place.
I think you all need a good banging, shagging, fucktooling or what every euphemism you prefer. Boys and Girls, just make sure you wash your junk well afterward and have a good pee to flush it all out.
Follow this all up with a nice single malt scotch and a pipe (ladies too!).
My head hurts. Why is it that whenever I find a mildly amusing form of light online entertainment, it always digresses into an online pissing match between polar opposite camps with extrememly rigid viewpoints?
OK, Demarcus Ware plays for the damn COWBOYS!!! (I don’t follow sports so please don’t rip me for having to Google!!!) If the image Glamour posted is real then LB is making these posts up!! You mean to tell me there’s not enough lameness on FB that they need to invent some?? WTF??? =0|
It’s the original picture, because I was the one who submitted it to Lamebook. I checked back on the person’s page to see if they had re-posted it again with perhaps different wording, thinking maybe the people working at Lamebook wanted to see it for themselves and had found a more amusing version – but no, there is only that one. They appear to have edited it to make the woman seem illiterate, when in fact she is not.
That’s pretty fucked up Lamebook… But I do have one more question, Glamour…if that image is of the original post, what about it seemed like it belonged on LB? Knowing now that “Demarcus” is an NFL player, I would take that post to be comical in the same way that I say I’m Johnny Depp’s future ex-wife… I don’t think she was pondering the paternity of an actual child, but just saying she thinks Ware is hot…
I’m not American or familiar with the NFL in any way, so it wasn’t until you mentioned it on here that I knew who this Demarcus was either So in that perspective, I thought it was lame because she was posting on Facebook the prospect of her pregnancy with a man, before actually telling him.
actually, kris, you can definitely get a yeast infection from too much sex. the bacteria that cause the infection already live there, all it takes is a slight ph imbalance to cause them to overgrow. in fact, douches and other “cleansers” can kill important bacteria and cause a yeast infection. schooled.
um… ok educational: fair enough. i learned something new. but really the point is that regardless of how yeast infections are caused, why on earth would anyone put on their STATUS that they have one?? ew! TMI!!!
