Hi! I came across your post and was hoping you could help me find the formulary for the boric acid that doesn't leak so much? I have chronic yeast infections, and i make my own capsules. I've found the kind I use-- and even the capsules prescribed for me-- to be very leaky and also somewhat irritating. I'd love your 'recipe' or a contact person if you have one! I tried the link you included, but it didn't work. Thanks!View Thread
6 months ago I had bacterial infection, took flagyl and got a yeast infection. That seemed normal, except I'm almost positive I've had the YI for 6 months straight. I've tried everything and I mean... EVERYTHING. Diflucan (for a full month), Terzol, Boric Acid (for a full month), probiotics, yogurt, garlic, tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar...you name it!
Went to Gyno and 2 times they looked under scope and saw "some yeast." When they did the culture, it was neg, but I was always using or had very recently used some form of treatment, so maybe a false neg? The only time I get relief, amazingly, is during my period.
I thought maybe I had diabetes and was tested. I freaked about HIV dispite low risk and was negative.
I've even been to a vaginitis center and they are completely useless. She hasn't seen yeast under the scope the 2x I was in, and culture was negative. She had me doing diflucan 2x a week for a month, even though I told her I've done this before and it DOESN'T WORK. She didn't listen.
In any event, I'm wondering if my problem could be Cytolytic Vaginosis (an overgrowth of lacto-- the good bacteria). The symptoms would be the same and it would make sense in that NOTHING cures my supposed YI.
I am seeing mixed reviews on whether or not the condition is real, so I wanted to inquire more on this. I did do 3 baths w/ baking soda and 1 douche w/ baking soda and it may help for a few hours but then its back. I've had similar ex;perience douching w/ Apple Cider Vinegar, so I'm not convinced it's helping. It's also been only a few days doing the baking soda. Is CV real? I've seen Dr HHH on medhelp say it's not, but I've seen one research study that seems to suggest it may be a real thing.View Thread
I'm not having any tears but I know for sure that can happen with yeast. Are you having white cheesy discharge and itching? If so, I would say you have a yeast infection. If not, I think low estrogen is a definite possibility. If it's low estrogen, you can easily get a cream to apply down yonder.
What have you tried and how long has this been going on for you?View Thread
I'm bumping this because I really want to hear from Jane. I have been taking the diflucan twice a week and have seen no results- have done the diflucan for 1 month, twice a week before (two times-- two months and it didn't work). The specialist I'm seeing wants me to keep taking it but I don't think even going past the 1 month point is going to get rid of it. It would have worked by now. Would you recommend I stop taking it? If it is this cytolytic vag, which I'm not sure about, I know the antifungals make it worse. I really just want your opinion on this CV...is it real or no? Some seem to think so, while other experts say it's notView Thread
