After sex, why do I have an infection?

NeuEve itself cannot cause infection, because it is made under sterile condition; there are no microorganisms. Also, NeuEve is made with 100% oil-base without water, so it cannot support microbial growth. Then, what else might have caused infection? There might be three possibilities.

  1. Infection from sex partner. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are common. I assume that you did not wear a condom. Even though you do not need contraception after menopause, you are still vulnerable to STIs. It is always a good idea to wear a condom for protection against STIs when you have a new partner. Such protection is mutual; the male can also be protected from possible STIs. NeuEve is oil-based and might not be compatible with latex condoms, so non-latex condoms should be used.
  2. Old yeast infection coming back. If a woman had yeast infection when she was young, the yeast might become dormant when she becomes menopausal. The rejuvenation effect of NeuEve makes the environment moist again by promoting mucous secretion, which may allow her dormant yeast to grow back. But if a woman never had yeast infection before, she cannot get yeast by using NeuEve. If you feel that you get yeast again, you can manage it as you did before with over-the-counter antifungal medications.
  3. UTI (Urinary tract infection) The vaginal tract is home to billions of indigenous bacteria. Some could be mobilized to the urinary tract after intimacy. A customer with vaginal atrophy could not have intimacy for many years. After using NeuEve, she regained the ability to have intimacy. Then, she enjoyed so much intimacy that she got honeymoon bladder in her 50s. Having a young woman’s trouble at an older age suggests that NeuEve can turn back the aging clock. To prevent honeymoon bladder, it is recommended to drink a lot of cranberry juice or water and empty bladder immediately after intimacy. In case honeymoon bladder is suspected, do not panic. It is just urinary tract infection (UTI). See your doctor and handle it as if you were a “honeymooner.” According to medical review articles, the best way to manage recurrent UTI (at least 2 UTIs in 6 months) is to take Macrobid (Nitrofurantoin) once a day for 6 months. You can ask your doctor for prescription. Alternatively, you can take daily d-mannose supplements to help prevent UTIs. D-mannose is the molecule present in cranberries that makes it difficult for bacteria to bind to the urinary tract.

In summary, the rejuvenation effect of NeuEve can help improve the ability of intimacy. After you use NeuEve for a while, you may be able to enjoy sex like a young woman. The bad news is that you may have to handle some issues of a young woman, like preventing STIs, yeast infection and UTIs. The good news is that you do not need to worry about menstruation.
