It's a shame, sorry about your male dying. Carlton is right may have had nothing to do with your care. Sad, but everytime we lose a lizard (hopefully) we learn from it, sometimes just reading care sheets and articles helps.

I have a big ole male chuckwalla I raised from a few weeks, he is about 8 years now and had a penile prolaspe late on a friday night/holiday weekend.
I was in a panic for a brief moment, tried calling vets in the area and just got anwsering services. I knew I had to act fast, and remembered an article I read that said, soak in cool sugar water, and then keep wet with KY jelly and put them on a clean towel, no paper, sand,,, DO NOT LET IT DRT OUT.

I did this and every so often went in a squirted more KY jelly on his prolasped/ vent area. A few hours later I went in and saw that had indeed shrunk down. And by next morning when I woke, it had returned back inside. My goodness I was jumpin with joy, hhhehee, needless to say quite happy it had worked and that I had remembered. I am NEVER without KY jelly in the lizard medicine cabinet since that.

Again, I'm sorry about your lose , and hope you feel better soon. Best wishes with your girl, and maybe later you can get a nice healthy male and try again.
