Common Questions and Answers about Nuvaring yeast infection medication

nuvaring

She did a swab test and I will hear back in 10 days, but she also gave me meds for a yeast infection as well as herpes. I took the pill she gave for the yeast infection and got monistat and have put cream on it and any pain I have had has gone away within the last 24 hours. I know the sores are still there, but they are smaller. Am I right to assume that a combo of all of the above has just lead to the most painful yeast infection ever?
I heard that the nuvaring birth control helps alot with women who are prone to yeast infection... I have been using it for about 3 years and it does help however I was married for the most part of that and maybe only got one or two but i mostly contributed that to receiving oral after my husband drank alot of beer...
Hello, All my issues began when I started using NuvaRing for Birth Control which was in May this year. A month later (June) right after my period, I developed a yeast infection or so thats what I thought. I went to the Dr and was prescribed medication she did not do a swab test bc the month that I got on the NuvaRing I had her check for any stds or any other type of infection and all the tests came back negative.
1) Would I be getting UTI's or Yeast infections more? (I do get them very easily) 2) How do I take the NuvaRing out?? There's no string or anything attatched to it, such as a tampon has. And how far do you have to put it up? 3) Does NuvaRing make it difficult to have sex? Would he notice it? Thank you everyone for taking your time to read my questions and give the best advice!
Did she test you for a yeast infection? BV? I had something similar after trying the new birth control Nuvaring...once a month I would have increased discharge (no odor), and severe itching. The cracking and bleeding would occur when I scrathe3d (but I really couldn't help it! The itching was INTENSE!). Monistat helped (I thought it was a yeast infection) for a few of those months, but then I started having some pain on intercourse over the course of a few months.
I would go to the docters and get it checked out. it good be an infection that needs to be treated with antibiotics or other medication. if it is worse after sex .. you may want to lay off the intercourse until it clears up might make it worse for you,Hope this helps.
I got very very mild hot flashes and frankly, I got some kind of yeast infection type of thing which I'm attributing to the hormones but who knows. I'm hoping to conceive this month but have two more refills just in case.
Update -- I posted back in July and suffered with the persistent paper-cut like cuts for about 18 months before a doctor finally was able to help. I had previously been told that it was NOT yeast, but the symptoms did improve somewhat with Diflucan, and worsened with some of the traditional yeast-promoting things (non-cotton underwear, drinking alcohol). One GYN finally did find yeast on microscope, and discovered that the yeast persisted despite multiple doses of Diflucan.
I had a little bit of itchiness which is not common for me, so I went and got some yeast infection medication. For the record, it wasn't Monistat. Anyway, I inserted the first one and went to bed. I awoke with the most painful awful burning itching I have ever felt down there in my LIFE. I accidentally cut the skin down there from scratching too hard if you can believe it. It felt like my vagina was on FIRE!!!
During sex it doesn't hurt but about 2-4 minutes afterwords it starts to burn from the outside of my vagina to about 4 inches in and lasts for 2-3 hours. I can't sit. I've tried every yeast infection medication and nothing works and my doctor said my test results for a yeast infection came back negative. Ive been with the same guy for 2 1/2 years and have only recently had the problem after I found out I was pregnant.
Without anything, they opened the incision to a full 1cm at the point it opened and squeezed out as much of the fluid as they could. A week later, I got a UTI. The next week, I got a yeast infection. Then I noticed a little red dot coming out of the incision. Three weeks later, I had a wound care specialist cortirize the wound. Then after the pain killers were done. I felt strange sensations down my left leg and a burning pain across the incision.
I have similar issues-i'm 19 and am going to the doctors this coming tuesday and i'm afraid they may say its herpes-i thought it was a yeast infection-i just got off of antibiotics and then this yeast infection, or what i htink and hope is one, came around, and i know that can happen. but then i have some cracks in my skin down below and some reddness, i sometimes have gotten cracks before, and thought it was maybe from stretching the skin from sex or something.
I've tried Diflucan pills, I've had a biopsie (it was negative), I've had an ultrasound (nothing unusual for found), I've been tested for every kind of VD (all negative), I was tested to see if I was diabetic (I'm not), I was even told that it might be ecoli attacking and eating the skin and put on anti-biotics that had no effect (except to give me a yeast infection). And everytime I have been cultured for yeast, it has been negative.
She said it wasn't a yeast infection, but a bacterial infection. She gave me a prescription for Metronidzole Vaginal 0.74%PRA - which is a cream you insert with an applicator each night before bed. I feel relief already! She gave me a running prescription because she said this often reoccurs in women due to a pH imbalance - starting or ending your period is the trigger. I also use vagisil only on the affected area, and that helps alot.
Not sure if it's a side effect from that (I was sexually active when I was unaware of the yeast infection), or a side effect from the flucanazole (oral yeast infection treatment). It doesn't hurt, but it definitely feels like I have a piece of tape stuck to my lip. It peels. The skin is thin. My lip is starting to develop a wrinkle in the spot. It's red, and when I have lip gloss on, it is not visible to the naked eye.
She said I had a sever yeast infection, gave me 3 of some pill that gets rid of the infection, but it really only takes one. She then gave me a cream called Nystatin. This cream is wonderful. With it I could pee without it burning. Within 10 days the sores went away. Now, 3 months later, I have one sore again, and I actually felt this one develop. I put more of this cream on it, and again, its working perfectly.
This wards off Yeast and Bv as well. Also another trick if you have a YEAST INFECTION which u MAY have if you have Bv is to take Alka Seltzer. It has citric acid in it as well as Asprin that helps cure u IMMEDIATELY! I KNOW! I've used A LOT of stuff w/trial and error. And Yes, the Rephresh DOES work, BUT, as SOON as you stop using it u get a yeast infection ( @ least I did) and your vagina becomes USE to it.
doctors keep diagnosing it as yeast although the only symptom i have in common with yeast is the itching. the yeast medication does seem to work except these 'infections' are so recurring that it boggles my mind. it such an inconvenience especially since my boyfriend and i (monogamous for 1 year) don't get a chance to have sex very often. the last thing i need when tehre is an opporunity is to have to worry about discomfort.
i am going to see a doctor tomorrow because i thought it was a yeast infection but i have been tested for that before and i didn't have anything. I've have the problem for as long as i can remember..and i did realize that wearing tight clothes makes it worse...but im only 20! all of my clothes are well fitted!..and i realized when i take off the clothes and get into my PJ's the itching is horrible! its always worst in the night... i don't know what to do!!! HELP!!!!
I also developed a vaginal yeast infection this weekend so I think the itching could be Candida overgrowth. I am going to see someone this week for a candida test and a liver enzyme test. I'm afraid my liver could be failing because I have had a drinking problem for several years and itching is a symptom. If they find nothing I will have a test for diabetes. I have been diagnosed 3 times with high blood sugar but negative for diabetes in the past.
then she told me she was using the nuvaring for birth control...and she had switched during to it while with her last partner, and hadn't had any issues. but it clearly was hurting me during sex. she switched to the pill (though she hated it) and it took a long time for me to completely heal...we waited as much as weeks at a time hoping i would be completely healed, but once we would start having sex again the place where i had been cut would start to reopen...
My heavy bleeding is from fibroids, did manage to get the doc to answer that one question, they go away on there own when you are totally thru with menopause, as for the watery discharge, I have to wear a pad everyday, its not urine so the only thing i can thank of is that my organs are pressing down on my ovaries and this causes the wetness,during sex its awefull Tooo wet to enjoy and my ph level in my vagina has changed because of this, I have been to the doctor to make sure i have no yeast i
They both came back positive for yeast but the lab forgot to culture them both times. I have another yeast infection for the 8 month in a row and have had to take meds each time only to have it come back. I am done. I am calling tomorrow to take it out. The miren was great for over 2 yrs but is not working now.
Since I have it inserted, my sexdrive has decreased, and I have yeast infection all the time. I'm planning to talk to my doctor, and have it removed as soon as possible.
Your not alone. I am having the same thing happen to me. Please let me know what you find out I am having a similar problem exepet i have not been told i have Endomertiosos and Adenomyosis. 3 years ago i started getting 2 periods a month. Nobody could figure out why. Hormonoal imbalance was occuring. I wanted to find out what was causing this and solve the problem not cover up the symptoms by taking birth control pills to get regulated or fertility drugs to have kids.
If you answer yes to any of these, I would suggest getting checked out ASAP as in rare instances you can develop an infection upon insertion. If the answer is no, than most likely it is just stretching your "virgin" uterus : ) Good luck, I loved my Mirena!!
I have searched the interenet and can not find any answers to my problem. I have recurrent cold symptoms during my period. I have noticed the symptoms for about a year but for the last six months they have happened every month around the third day of my period. Symptoms include aching joints, blocked nose and headaches as well as generally feeling awful. Periods are heavy and painful with clotting for about seven-nine days. Cold Symptoms usually last 5-7days.
It worked for a while and then it started getting screwed up again. Now I am on Nuvaring and I am not bleeding irregularly anymore, but I have had the same problem you have since I started birth control. I have not masturbated without heavy bleeding (very very dark blood) since I started the depo as I recall,and most of the time I bleed throughout and/or after intercourse. I had the same result on my papsmear as well, so there must be a connection.
Hi Ziaon, I would avoid Paragard if I were you. I started experiencing the symptoms you describe AFTER having my Paragard fitted. I never had them before. They were utterly debilitating & not only that, but I have had infection after infection. In my experience doctors brush off these concerns as 'not a known side effect' - I've had this experience with the pill, Mirena and Paragard.
