Is the G spot real or a myth?
There's this idea that right inside the vagina, there's an area that is particularly sensitive. Now, is there really such a thing as a G spot?
Probably not. It has never been scientifically identified. It's not an anatomic site. Some surgeons are injecting Restalyn, or fillers, in the vagina, in the so-called G spot area to expand the area and make it more sensitive.
I say that's not the way to go. How do you know you won't damage your nerves down there? I'm not in favor of any kind of cosmetic surgery in that area. There's incredibly sensitive tissue.

And while your hot flashes may get better, vaginal dryness is only going to get worse. There are simple short-term solutions: Lubricants that can work in a pinch, but only estrogen can correct the underlying problem.
Can you pass a yeast infection to your partner?
You certainly can, if you're even comfortable enough to have sex. You can definitely give them a jock itch or rash, so it's something to bring up beforehand.
