Good day there, Eric Bakker, naturopath and author of Candida Crusher. Here’s another question I get asked from time to time. Can a yeast infection cause bloating? Very much so; bloating is one of the key digestive problems that many are likely to encounter with a yeast infection, bloating, gas and burping. These are key things I find with people. People with bloating have to loosen the waist band after a meal. Are you the kind of person who wants a dessert after your meal or like ice cream or pudding or something sweet or like a biscuit with a cup of coffee or a cup of.
Tea or a cookie? These are reasons why people get bloating. They have a meal and they put sugar on top of the meal or they have sugary meals between meals. So you’re basically feeding up the yeast and causing what I call fermentative dysbiosis. So you’re causing fermentation in the gut, which creates gas and bloating. And how does it get out? Through the anus there, through flatulence. Are you a person who passes a lot of wind? It could well be a yeast infection. And you may well have other signs and symptoms as well. Look at some of my other tutorials to see if you can recognize any of the other signs and symptoms of a yeast infection.
I hope that clears up your question because a yeast infection can certainly cause bloating and you can read a lot more about all these digestive signs and symptoms in Chapter 3 of my book, Candida Crusher. Thank you.
Signs Ovulation Has Already Occurred
I want to know the signs ovulation has already occurred. Your period coming is a sign you probably ovulated. I want to know if I’ve ovulated to get pregnant, and a period is proof that did not happen. You only have a one day period or so to get pregnant. I want to know when that is. If the is checking your fertility due to health issues, they can see that you’ve ovulated via a sonogram. I cannot afford to do any more ultrasounds than the standard one to confirm a pregnancy. So look at the basal body temperature chart.
That’s a measurement of the temperatures internally. Track it each day so you know your baseline and variation. What variation are you looking for? When the basal body temperature rises, that is the day after you ovulated. Then I need to know that value as well as recognize it to know that ovulation has already occurred. Some women get cramping in the middle of their cycle as a sign of ovulation. That’s only one in five.
If you get cramps on one side but not the other and you do not have it the next day, you probably ovulated. And I thought PMS was bad. These cramps are not as bad as PMS, but few women get them. Most women though see changes in the cervical mucus. It is all the same to me except for when I have a yeast infection. The discharge is normally thick and white, but it becomes clear and watery when you ovulate. You know you’ve ovulated and passed the fertile time when it switches back to thick.
And white. And there’s a chance I’m pregnant if the discharge spikes. I’d say morning sickness is a more certain sign of pregnancy. If you want to be certain you’ve ovulated, buy ovulation tests. I do not want to have a stack of ovulation tests in the bathroom, much less in addition to a stack of pregnancy tests. Using ovulation tests will indicate when the lutenizing hormone levels peaked, and when the ovulation test says that hormone is falling, you know when ovulation occurred.
So that’s what the LH on the box means. What are other signs I’ve ovulated? Studies show that women get more flirty and wear more red when they are ovulating, as if the hormones make you more likely to have sex when you can conceive. I’m not going to judge my fertility on my desire to go out. After all, if we want to get pregnant, we might as well stay in.
