I haven't, but I know that some people who are particularly sensitive to fragrances and certain ingredients found in some lubes (i.e. glycerin) have gotten yeast infections as a result. My advice is to read product info/labels and if a lube gives you a yeast infection (having eliminated other possibilities), I suggest no longer using it.

No, I've never experienced any kind of vaginal infection at all. I hope my good luck continues.
I really like flavoured lubes.

No, but I don't use lubes with a lot of glycerin. Sliquid Swirl is a good flavored lube to try out because it has no glycerin.

Yes, for the most part I avoid lubes containing Glycerin or flavor ingredients if I'm going to be using them vaginally.

It's possible that Glycerin can contribute to yeast infections. The theory is that since Glycerin is a sugar alcohol, and yeast feed on sugar, they tend to multiply more rapidly in a sugar rich environment. I've never read any solid research on it though.

I have and I have found that as long as you wash up (and I mean REALLY wash up, as in take a shower or bath) after play you can avoid this. It's those who use it and let it sit for a long time.

And the sugar in it does not help. Yeast love sugar.
