And, jayray, boo, yeast! This may be TMI but sometimes what has offered some relief for me is garlic. I take an unpeeled clove, sometimes cut just a teensy bit, wrap it in gauze and knot it and insert like a tampon. The gauze acts like a tampon string so you can get it out.
As for me, still waiting to O as far as I can tell, and trying not to get nervous since my midwife says my FSH is high and my thyroid is a little off.
