I have Endometriosis. I also have experienced fibroids and had huge ovarian cysts that are all very painful. Why is it that birth control pills are always recommended? What are some other options? Birth control pills make me sick and I gain weight on them. I also get frequent yeast infections which I am sick of! I wash my underwear in All Free 'N Clear and I double rinse them. The doctors office said to not wash with Dove but said it was okay to use Cetaphil. She also said not to take bubble baths and to make sure that my toilet paper does not have any patterns to it. I eat yogurt daily. Although I do have some chronic pains that I live with I wonder if that makes me more susceptible to gettting yeast infections? who knows? Does anyone have any other ideas?View Thread
Thanks for your remarks.I really appreciate it. I have tried probiotics before and really did not notice a big difference I still would get the infections so I stopped that. I think part of my problem is that I sweat in my sleep and it is a breeding ground or like a petri dish for yeast to grow. I also have a lot of GI problems which is probably due to the fact of why I am sweating. I believe that it is my body's way of trying to release toxins through my pores. Who knows for sure though I am just entirely guessing as to why.View Thread
