I feel really silly asking this question...
but i know if you used flavoured condoms for vaginal sex you can get yeast infections but can it cause any SERIOUS problems from using them? just thought i'd ask.

Are flavoured condoms less quality than regular ones?

All condoms, flavoured or not, are manufactured according to pretty strict standards, so unless they are past the expiration date or have not been used properly, they are no less effective than regular ones.

The skin in your vagina might be sensitive to the flavouring used in the condoms. MIGHT. So if you feel funny it might be that, and you should get non-flavoured condoms or condoms for sensitive skin. But I highly doubt you will get a yeast infection from it.
