Lubricant/condom allergy?
An_255818 posted:
Long story short, about two (almost 3) years ago, I introduced a condom into my vagina about 1 day before my period. Before that moment, I had very manageable back cramps and easy going periods. After that, and since then, I have extremely painful period cramps on the first day if my period. In the months following the condom thing I had yellowish discharge and odor. It itched like there was no tomorrow.

Then it just disappeared. The period cramps persisted. I know discharge is the accumulation of dead cells in the inner lining so I'm worried I damaged my uterus. Did the allergy damage me permanently? Is there a way to reverse any damage done?

It is unlikely that you suffered any permanent damage to your uterus from a condom inserted into your vagina three years ago. At the most a condom would irritate your vagina at the time of the introduction and not your uterus since it would not pass through the cervix into your uterus.
