Infection prone women, what material to stay away from?

irishlove irishlove
This is embarrassing but I'm infection prone so I'm constantly making sure I'm clean down there. I've been very scared to use toys or even lube. My boyfriend and I have decided to experiment with some new toys. Is there any material/ingredient I should stay away from?

You can't go wrong with steel, glass, and silicone. The lower the safety rating, the riskier a material is. Steel, glass, and silicone are all nonporous, so they can't trap bacteria when you clean them (and they can be sterilized if you're concerned)

You should probably use a condom over any toy that you use if you are really infection prone. Any porous material will hold onto yeast/bacteria (possibly) and could cause a reinfection.

I've switched to silicone toys exclusively and I've still been getting infections, even though I've started cleaning my toys with hydrogen peroxide.
