yeast-infection

back about 6 mths ago i got my first ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>..and got them for 3 mths in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> row <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> week or so before my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>..not sure why...i didnt go to the doc tho, i used canesten..i find the 1 day trestment didnt work...i guess i needed something with a slow reklease that worked over a longer period of time as opposed to the one shot treatment..i used the three day combo pack (where u insert the tablet inside of u and then use the cream on the outside) bless my fiance..
at this point treat your kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> obviously and then follow up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> things. you c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n get tested for std's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> - makes no difference at all. What is important is that you waited enough time between the last time you had sex and getting tested. do you know what they tested you for too? odds are herpes wasn't a part of your std testing. you should follow up with a type specific herpes igg blood test 3 months after the last time you had sex.
If you take antibiotics it c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>, which I think you already have. Something that may help with these yeast infections is taking a probiotic every day. They can be bought an any pharmacy or even a Walmart. ask the pharmacist what they recommend. Research online women's clinics in your area. It really sounds like you need to see a Dr. If there are'nt any close to you give your own Dr a call and ask about an uninsured patient discount. Many Drs will do this.
also, i don't know if i ovulated already...and if i were to be pregnant already c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n i tre<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> w/ an rx???? it would be a long shot if i was prego but i have been peeing a lot...unless that is a sign of a yeast infection???
It's much more healthy than douching and the vinegar balances out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> ph levels. If you feel like you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> coming <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>, you start feeling irritation or noticing more discharge, take a vinegar bath right away. also, be sure to avoid heavy soaps when you shower. Use Dove to wash your private area.
, Chlamydia) Did you ask if it could be anything else other then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>? Did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> Dr. offer any other reasons for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> discharge other then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st infection - such as a possible STD?? Did you make sure to inform your Dr. that you aren't using condoms and that you've never had a pap smear? all these things are important to talk about. Sometimes Dr.'s don't always offer information. Some Dr.
It relieves the itching and I really believe it kills off those nasty buggers because sometimes I don't even have to use medicine to tre<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>!! I actually wash the ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st out with the sprayer. If you dont' have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> hand held sprayer then you could buy a douche bottle (it's actually a bag with a hose on it) at the store and fill it with very warm water to clean yourself out... no vinegar or nothing else. Sorry to sound gross but it works for me.
I would have to say if you have had sex with her while she has a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> you c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n be making it worse. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> man c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n carry the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> and give it to the woman again and again. I would go see the doctor yourself. If you dont want her to get the infection again, I would suggest talking to your doctor about transfering infections. Otherwise she will continue to get it.
your situation is a rather complex one and you have ruled out some of the possible explanations. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> difficult to tre<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> possibility, I must also admit that as I read your description I wondered about herpes although it sounds as though your symptom took far longer than the 3 weeks which really is the maximal time that herpes infections might be present (am I correct on the time element. How long have your symptoms been present.
you can also put vaseline <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> vagina <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> you do this. if you eat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> lot of sugary things cut down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> them. even if you dont think that you eat sugary things, there is also sugar in the food or drinks that you consume. so try and stay away from that stuff bc when i cut down on my sugar intake i notices a change. there are also panty liners if you have vaginal discharge that let in 2X's the air flow into your undies. its the Carefree body shape panty liners. they also helped me.
You mom will understand if you tell her that you need to see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> dr for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>. any woman c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n get one you don't have to be sexually active. Please get it treated, it will only get worse. I'd tell you to get the over the counter stuff but honestly at this point it will only hurt you more than resolve the issue because you have parts that are not healed. You are going to need the prescribed stuff.
You might also notice you might tare if you wipe too hard or if you scratch/rub yourself (hey, it can be very itchy) you cut yourself. also, you c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> pill that takes away <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>. My doctor always gives me two just incase the first pill I take does not clear it up right away.
The main reason I am asking is because the first time I performed oral sex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her I got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> very bad bacterial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> in my throat; figuring it was from that I did not do it for a long period of time, then when I performed the act again 2 nights ago I am again showing signs of a bacterial infection but not as severe.
Unfortunately after all this, I still burn while urinating, clearly I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>, I urinate chunky white stuff and ooze and crust up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the tip of my penis, but most importantly, my penis skin is still peeling off. Mostly from the bottom now, the sides and top are healed back up on the head making it near impossible to have sex without bleeding.
when i was prescribed my antibiotic my doctor told me about this and told me that yogurt has avtive bacteria that help relief the symptoms of ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>.. if you even research <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the internet you will find some info <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> this, and it actually works.. try also eating plenty of yogurt if you dont like the idea of putting yugurt on your vagina.i think you also said that you use baby wipes. if they have perfume in them it could cause itching.. it sucks to have this..
after sex insert a small piece of the frozen yogurt into <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> vagina this will help keep ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st infections to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> minimum. If you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> the cooling effect is wonderful. Every 2 to 3 weeks replace the yogurt that is frozen. It will not lose its probiotic strength because it is frozen, when it thaws out in your vagina the cultures become active again. You can also dip a tampon into the yogurt and insert if you have a yeast infection with your period.
I also have developed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> and I was an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>treatingan> it with cream but now I am scared to tre<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t it because I have found a small pea-sized bump that appears to be a little white in color . . . it is on the left size of my vagina. I can't figure out if its the yeast infection that is causing the itching and a little bit of stinging sensation or if it is the bump.
have you been tested for STD's??
I also got a yeast infection from being on 2 rounds of antibiotics and steriods for broncitis and pneumonia. I just started getting into using more "natural" approaches, and I bought several different kinds of essentail oils, tea tree oil being one of them. after I realized I had a yeast infection (I'm 30 and this is only my second one ever) I had to research to see what to do about it.
I have heard that men c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n pass <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st infection (not necessarily show symptoms), so if you are having unprotected sex you may be passing it back and forth. In this case your partner may need treatment. also, BC pills can sometimes be the cause. It seems to mean that you should not get them so frequently, What does your physician suggest?
), and those test came back negative, but it did show that I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>. I was given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> prescription pill and it was only 1 pill and was advised to get Monistat. I did both of those things, but my symptoms seem to not get any better. They were still very extreme. However, in February, it seemd as if my period was finally normal again. There was no dark brown blood and they last the usual four days with a heavier flow.
are you absolutely certain that is it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>? have you had one before and had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> dr. confirm? what are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> symptoms? i once had an infection and thought that it was a yeast infection. I bought the cream and made it worse. i went to the dr. and there was no yeast present. i have heard that the 1 day treatment is not as effective as the 3-7 day. i usually go with the 3 day but being as thrifty as i am, the 7 day is less expensive!
you may notice white creamy or thick discharge....should get it checked....you c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> ye<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> clitoris too, and it can get all swollen and have some white discharge around it....ouch! This is what works for me...and it could be helpful for you too...but I'm not a doctor and not an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>treatingan> anyone here...just sharing... I know that vaginal douching is not considered a good thing...but let me tell you ladies....it's the onLY thing that works for me when I'm hurting down there...
Viruses can even cause colored mucous, that thick discharge you can't see through, which many people believe only c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n come from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bacterial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span>. Colds c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n even cause pressure in sinuses, when viruses affect the sinuses . antibiotics don't help in these viral infections. Treatments aimed at reducing symptoms can help.
