Oh boy this is gross stuff but I need help and was hoping some of the ladies here might have insight.
I have had recurring yeast infections for the last couple of months. Saw my doc in December, she gave me a terazol prescription and a Diflucan prescription with refills for when the symptoms return. She called me a few days later and gave me a prescricption for something for BV(bacterial vaginosis?) since I had that too.
Ever since I seem to go back and forth between the two types of infections. I guess your vajayjay has bacteria and yeast living there and when there is a proper balance, everything is in perfect harmony. When you get a YI and take meds, it kills the yeast and the bacteria overgrow, resulting in BV. When you get BV and take meds, it kills the bacteria and the yeast overgrows.
I feel like I am going to be living in this awful cycle forever. I have tried not taking meds (but the symptoms just get worse), have eliminated white sugars and white flour from my diet (and no alcohol), tried taking probiotics. It is not going away. I go from one to the other back and forth.
When I google this I read about women who have suffered through this for years. There are also a lot of websites promoting “proven cures” which seem like a lot of BS.
Has anyone been through this and do you have any advice for me?
Thanks so much.
