Has anyone had an odd allergic reaction to Jelly toys like this?

I haven't used Jelly in a very long time. I'm really not a huge fan, I hate the material, and I don't recommend it. However, I was a little lonely as my husband had to travel for a week after our honeymoon and decided to buy a rabbit vibe made from Jelly. I swore it had safety features such as no phtalates but now that I look at the product page I don't see any safety features. There are none on the box either. I can't believe I missed something like this (I'm a safety freak when it comes to toys!).

The toy turned out to be a dud, and I gave up on using it after a few tries. This is one reason why I'm so confused. You'd think that if I only used it a few times there would be no issue.

Anyway, I did NOT use the toy without a condom. There was a few instances when the condom slipped up, and the Jelly clitoral attachment was touching my vagina. About a week after I have been having discharge from my vagina that is very thick and almost like a clumpy lotion/egg whites. I'm also nauseated and feeling pain around my cervix.

I know I'm not pregnant and I did an at home yeast infection test and I'm all clear. My doctor checked me out as well and he isn't sure what is wrong so he's sending me to another OBGYN.

I've never had this problem and I'm almost positive this toy has causes some sort of infection. My question is, has anyone else experienced this? I've had yeast infections before and they were never like this so I know something is up. Please let me know your stories, I think it would really help.

Also, the toy was this rabbit vibe: link

Jelly is PVC, which can cause allergic reactions. Sometimes people become allergic to it after short term exposure. Sometimes it makes my thumb swell up, so I can't wear vinyl gloves. :/

Wow. I mean I knew it could cause infections if it had gotten dirty and absorbed things... and I've used Jelly before back in my teen days. The only issue is that it was a clean toy when I used it vaginally. I'm worried.

I would go get checked! Sometimes you can use a material or chemical for years and suddenly become allergic to it. I doubt it gave you an infection, per se, but may have caused a reaction which could lead to changes in vaginal pH, which could lead to a yeast or bacterial infection.

Yeah. I told my OBGYN and he really thinks it's related to the Jelly toys. He had a case a few months ago with a woman who actually got cervical cancer that was linked to Jelly and that's when I got really scared. He referred me to someone who is just a GYN and not an OB so they know more about the allergic reactions, etc. He wants to make sure I didn't contract an infection or something more serious. It's just ridiculous and I wish EF offered more rabbits made of silicone and not Jelly. It's so unsanitary. But it was my fault for even ordering it.

I've had bad reactions to jelly toys, but I don't think that's it this time, because for a week you felt fine. The reactions to jelly usually appear during use (burning or stinging feeling) or a day or so after (BV, yeast overgrowth or UTI). My guess is that it's something else - especially if you used a condom.

EDIT: I haven't seen you last reply before posting. I'm very curious about the cervical cancer patient. I had some issues with my cervix in high school - around the time I was using a jelly rabbit. I've read that almost all cervical cancers are HPV-related.
