I'm not scrap girl, but I got a biffy bidet attachment which helped a lot before surgery when I was going to the bathroom a lot. It's about $100, and not that hard to attach to the toilet. I used so much less toilet paper with it, and had a lot less irritation too. http://www.biffy.com/cart/index.php/latest/biffy-universal-bidet.html
Now that I have an ileo, it's not that helpful, although still good for a heavy period.
It does take a bit of getting used to in the winter, because it's cold water.... I was OK with it, but they do sell something to heat the water too.
There are other brands around too.
