On vagina during exercise. Sorry if tmi. I'm trying to get fit, just joined the gym, but have come away with two blisters after just one one hour work out. Im on my period so had a pad on, which I changed straight after. Anything else I can do to prevent/ treat them?? I can forsee them driving me mad and I don't want to give up on getting fit just because of that. Have searched on the rest of the Internet but there is surprisingly little about this problem, for blisters in other places they say use plasters but obviously that's not going to work in this instance!

Hello Midnight. I'm not sure I have the answer, but didn't want to leave you without a reply. Is it possible you could use some lubricant on the area of your vagina where the friction is? I know sometimes wearing pads you may get chafing when exercising, I put a bit of sudocrem on the sore bit (sorry tmi) obviously depending where abouts it is. I don't know if what you are experiencing is chafing, which can sometimes form blisters? Hope it gets better soon smile

How about using a Mooncup instead?
