toilet paper

I know this is a very strange question, but I really have no one else to ask.  

OK, well, lately I have had alot of discharge I am currently 24w1d pregnant.  My delima is when I wipe I get tissue left in or on my vagina.  I use the toilet paper that is thicker without all the extra fluffyness and I bought this kind for this reason, because of all the particles that the more expensive kind that is fluffy leaves behind.  I know that this can cause yeast infections and things.  I am also concerned about our gilrs (7 and 5) using types that will leave pieces behind.

I hope I am not the only woman in the world this happens to.  =(

Can anyone recommend a good brand?

you are not the only one this has happened to..it still does happen to me sometimes..i think thats why when u have ur baby they tell you to just dab..wiping would hurt n could disrupt the stitches but dabbing wont leave or shouldnt leave any particles behind to cause an infection...

CYW has a good point about dabbing.  My oldest has problems in this area so dabbing really helps her a lot.
She was avoiding toilet paper for a while.

I have found that the not fluffy ones are too scratchy and the fluffy ones have too much lint.

So I can't help about brands.

I feel better after telling you off:)

Forgive and forget?

Congratulations regarding your baby girl.

I have two girls and they are so much fun!

It happens to me, blah!  I find a solution for me though.  Cottenel brand makes flushable bottoms wipes, there are a few other brands to though.  They can be found on the toiletpaper isle.  No lent, nothing left behind, and you feel a little fresher after!

Already forgotten.  Something changed inside of me when I saw my little princess on the screen.  I lost alot of built up anger.  You were right in alot of what you said to me.  It hit home I have to say, but I can't change any of it now, I can only work towards making the future brighter and wholesome for me and my new family.  =)

I liked the picture of you and your baby, he or she was soo tiny.

I will have to try the dabbing instead of wiping.  All of this lovely white discharge is overwhelming me, to say the least.  I know it is normal, but it makes me want to barf..lol.  And the little squirt of pee that I get mixed in when I cough is a pain in the tush too!  =)

It didn't hit me until I vented that I had become such an a$$ (fits the toilet paper theme).

I shouldn't have been so judgmental.

I hope things work out for you all--and I'm really happy about your baby.

Babies make the world a better place--a more exhausted place, but better.

Thanx, regarding pic.

Try Charmin Ultra Strong. The one in the red package not the blue. It works for me :). Good luck

I have had this problem even before I had my children.  I can only use Scott tp.  I have tried the scott extra soft and could not figuer out why I could not stop inching myself.  (TMI I know.)  It have never had a UTI bet I figuered after this last episode with the TP that I must have a UTI I never bothered to think about the TP because I have used Scott for over 12 years.  I would feel so much better after I got out of the shower and then it started to add up that it has to be the different type of scott I was using.  I switched back and I have not had a problem agien.  I have tried using baby wipes too but I have enough moisture going on that I dont think I should add anything else.haha  Try Scott and see if it helps.  Thanks for posting this because I thought I was the only extra sensitive one out there with this problem.

I was also going to say flushable wet wipes.  Summer's Eve makes some and you can also use baby wipes - at least my doctor said I could.  It keeps you "fresh" and keeps the paper from sticking to you.

I can't use the wet wipe things, I have had chronic uti's since I was 11.  I can't use Charmin, and the Dr. did recommend to stay away from that one since it's bad for the leftover stuff.  I use quilted Northen and am fine, but try something not so fluffy.
