Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher, with another question I get asked from time to time from my female patients. Can I treat my yeast infection while I'm on my period You can treat it while you're on your period, but I think a better time to treat a vaginal yeast infection is before your period in the proliferative phase. This is when the lining of the endometrium is starting to build up. So from ovulation through to period is a better time to treat. And in Chapter 5 of my book, Candida Crusher, you can read my unique twostep.
Treatment for chronic vaginal yeast infection. In the time building up to the menstrual cycle is a good time to use a kill or antifungal treatment. And in the postperiod time is a good time to do a restorative treatment or a building up treatment. And I guarantee you if you do three or four of these treatments concurrently for three to four months, you're going to notice a big improvement. So you can treat while you're on your period and I know some females do treat regardless of whether they've got their period or not, they'll treat. But I believe a better approach.
Gentle music Laci Oh hi, everyone! Throughout the last ten years I've had so many vaginal issues that I'm basically a certified hacker now. ding Before I get started sharing some ancient remedies and twenty first century lifesavers just a little reminder. I'm gonna be talking about vaginal infections and stuff and sometimes the symptoms of those are actually symptoms of things that are much more serious. So, yay, love your vagina and go to the doctor when you need to. First step, when yeast gets a little outta control.
Why yes, I am about to suggest that you put garlic in your vagina. I know it sounds weird but it seriously works so well. Just push in a whole clove. Don't puncture it or will burn and change that baby every twelve hours. Usually within three to five days my yeast infections are gone. Yeah, it can leave a little bit of a smell but who doesn't like garlic bread The vagina's a pocket so it's not gonna get lost but if you're worried, you can tie some floss to it so.
That you can easily pull it out. For pain relief, I put plain yogurt twith live active cultures into the fingers of a latex glove and then freeze it. Look for yogurt with the least amount of sugar that you can find 'cause yeast loves sugar and when you pull it out of the freezer you'll have these delightful, mumbling yogurt tampons. Pop one in overnight with a pad to catch the leakage. Next up, UTIs. I know, I know you've heard it before but seriously, hydration is so freaking important.
Try to be drinking a little water all day long. Second, secret weapon is DMannose. You can get this at a supplement store and I take two capsules three times a day for five days while drinking lots of water. Continue taking it a few days even after the symptoms have gone. I've also had good results with probiotics for bladder pain and take a good quality hibacteria count probiotic every day and it keeps the good bacteria in balance all over my body. Now, these are especially important for anyone who's on antibiotics.
I really wish the doctor told me that. Lastly, what would a vagina tutorial be without discussing periods I am a firm believer that every single vagina owner should be tracking their cycle. And my favorite app to that is called Clue. I randomly came across it and I love the gender neutral interface and the clean, simple design. It's super easy to use. It helped me figure out that this pain I was feeling was ovulation pain. It also tells me the exact day my period will start, when I'm gonna have symptoms,.
When I'm fertile for babymakin'. Totally recommend it. I'll put the link down below. I always break out on my periods which is annoying, and it can hurt, and I found that tea tree oil really helps to soothe my skin. I just put a little dab on my zits before bed and in the morning they're gone or way less inflamed. For cramps, I'm a huge fan of heating pads. They help so much and I really like the ones that you can strap on on the go. You can get these heating pads literally anywhere.
10 SECRET VAGINA FACTS
What bleeds every month without dying, produces pleasure, and can push out entire human beings It's the one, the only, vagina. Oh hi babes, here are ten little known facts about the almighty vagina. The vagina is like a sock. You can put feet in it! I'm just kidding, don't put feet in it, unless. Anyway, the vagina is a pathway of muscles that's flat when there's nothing in it. Also like a sock, there's a top that stops things from getting lost. Here's my PlayDoh vagina. At the top of the vagina is the cervix.
Which looks like a little doughnut and has a tiny little hole called the os. Not a whole lot can get through that hole. Sperm can get in, blood can get out, or your period. The hole can get big to let fetuses out but other than that, it's pretty solid. Vagina is Latin for sheath or sword holder. Can you guess what sword it's referring to Just like the penis, vaginas get erections too! When you're aroused, blood rushes down to all your happy bits and your genitals and the cervix and the uterus actually.
Lift up a little bit, usually a couple inches. This causes the vagina to lengthen and your vagina can expand up to 200 percent when you're turned on. The power of the horny, people. You may have heard that the hymen needs to be broken but that's not true. The hymen, or vaginal corona is a thin membrane that's leftover from when the vagina is being formed before you're born. That membrane sits near the opening of the vagina and it doesn't pop, break, tear, and it should not bleed. They're also really fun because they come.
In all kinds of shapes and configurations! Vaginas share properties with sharks. When you're turned on, tiny glands produce a few drops of natural lubrication. That lubrication contains a substance called squalene which is also found in shark livers. That's right, if you want, it can be shark week every week. The gspot is actually the internal clitoris. The gspot sits about two inches inside the vagina on the wall closest to your belly button, like this. You're basically hitting the little legs of the clitoris. There's also some sensitive tissue around the urethra,.
Your peehole, which is right above it. That's why gspot stimulation might feel really nice, but also like ehh, am I gonna pee on you right now Vagina dentata, or vagina with teeth, aren't far from reality. Castration fears come to life in all kinds of ancient folklore about vaginas that have teeth. Now there haven't been any documented cases of vaginas that have teeth. However, there have been documented cases of teeth in ovaries and teeth in uteruses, uteri. These are called cystic teratomas and they're basically the result of stem cells.
Winding up in places that they should not be. Only 25 percent of women orgasm with their vagina. The average understanding of sex is that penis in vagina equals orgasm, but that's not nearly the full story. Only about 25 percent of women reliably experience orgasm with vaginal penetration. The clitoris, the outside of it, is much more likely to get you to the happy place. About one in 5,000 female babies is born without a vagina. It's called vaginal agenesis and it happens when the vagina fails to fully form in utero.
Most of the time this isn't discovered until the person's in their teens but luckily there's treatment for it if they want. Feeling more confident about your vagina can help to improve orgasm. As women get older they report having more satisfying sex. One of the key reasons for this is that the women have more experience and they're more confident with their vajayjay. So don't be shy, vaginas are one of the most powerful parts of the human body. Here's your daily reminder to give it the love and credit that it deserves.
Vaginal Yeast Infection
There is a relatively effective though onedimensional treatment for candida yeast infection called immunotherapy. In this treatment yeast infection patients are ordered to avoid the consumption of basically all yeasty foods and sugary foods and are given allergenic substance in dilute doses normally in the form of oral drops or injection to enhance the immune abilities of the body and reduce the allergic response. The method also called Enzyme Potentiated Desensitization EPD was developed by Len McEwen, M.D. London in the mid60's. The newest form of this treatment is called Low.
Dose Allergens or LDA. In this treatment the patients receive up to three injections every two months and for a maximum period of two years, depending on the patients response to the therapy. The enzymes are suppose to enhance the candida infection strength and may treat several other groups of allergens along the way. The EPD treatment for candida yeast infection goes like this For a period of ten days before the first injection, the patients are given Sporanox, which is an anti fungal for systematic candida, and DeNol an anti gastric ulcer agent that.
Reduces the ability of candida to plant its roots in the mucus linings of the intestinal tract. For approximately 3 days before the injection, patients undergo a semifast in which they need to avoid the consumption of all food allergens combined with the intake of the following supplements that improve the effectiveness of the EPD treatment Zinc, Folic acid and Vitamin D3. The response of the EPD treatment for candida yeast infection varies among patients. Some patients may experience sudden and dramatic improvement that wears off in time while some need increased doses through longer intervals until improvement is maintained.
What Are The Signs Im Recovering From A Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker here, naturopath. Here's a question from a lady called Mrs. Watson in Atlanta, America. What are the signs I'm recovering from a Candida infection Well, the way to answer that one is to probably analyze the kind of symptoms and problems that you've had over the time and to see if there's any improvement in those or reversal of those symptoms. When I see patients with a chronic yeast infection, I really like to obviously write down all the signs and symptoms that person's presenting with. And if you're intelligent, what you'll do is create a symptom tracker. You'll find this.
In my book and I haven't seen this before with Candida, but it's an intelligent approach. So write down all the problems that you've got on the column on the left side on a piece of A4 paper and then just draw lines and then put every two to three or four weeks put a column on the top. And then what you're going to do is you're going to work out the severity of that problem over a period of time you're going to track it. Let's just say something like gas or constipation when you first see me, there could be a grade.
3 symptom, which is severe. But then you may find two or three weeks later, it could actually in fact get worse. You could put a 3 in that column. But then over time as you improve, what you'll find is there should be a reduction in the severity of that symptom and the number value should go down as well. So you should in time go from a three to a two, which is a moderate to a one, which is mild. But as I say, people never improve in a linear fashion. So you never go from feeling terrible.
To feeling fantastic in a period of months. There's always these up and downs which are going to occur, okay It's like the stock market. The stock market will be up one day and down the next up one day and down the next. But what you'll find over a long period of time is the score value increases, which means there is an improvement. Just like in your symptoms, if you're doing the right thing, then there should be a reduction in the score value of your symptoms threes being severe, ones being mild symptoms. If you're going.
To track all these symptoms over a period of time, get a piece of paper and tape it on the inside of your wardrobe or something every couple of weeks just track this. And I've got a My Symptom Tracker in my book you can print out with all the common signs and symptoms. So, Mrs. Watson, that's how you're going to be able to know if you're improving in Candida, is by testing and measuring your symptoms in comparison to the treatment protocol that you put into place. And this is something I'm not seeing with any other program. So.
Why is My Ovulation Discharge Brown
Why is my ovulation discharge brown Are you sure it is not the start of your period Wrong time of the month for that time of the month. It is possible that the rupturing of the follicle containing the egg released a few drops of blood. You'd think that came out as red. If the blood is fresh, sure. When it takes a couple days to migrate down from the ovary through the uterus, it comes out brown. So that explains it. Not necessarily. The other reason you see discharge a couple days after ovulation is.
The implantation of the embryo. That I would expect to be red. Unless it is really mixed with cervical mucus. Unless it takes time to eventually dissipate. Why else might I have brown discharge Brown usually means blood. You can have brown discharge due to abnormal vaginal bleeding. So this is not normal. You could have an untreated social disease, and the act of trying to get pregnant got the sores aggravated instead. I'd need to see a doctor to get that treated before I had sex again. In some cases, you get brown discharge when ovulating if you had endometrial cancer or.
Ovarian cancer. However, that's rare. Good, because I do not need another reason to get paranoid searching medical databases on symptoms. Go to red alert status and the doctor if the brown discharge when you ovulate accompanies pelvic pain that isn't a ten minute twinge when the ovary releases an egg. I'm not one of the twenty percent of women who get ovarian pain when the egg releases. It could be as simple as drying out of the vaginal walls with age and sex trying to get pregnant causing minor injuries.
I know that would be the cause if I used so much feminine hygiene stuff that it irritated things. If you have urinary incontinence along with a yellow or brown discharge, it is probably gonorrhea. And I thought it might be something I could treat myself like a yeast infection. If it is yellow discharge or green, you either have trichomoiasis, gonorrhea or some other reason to see the doctor. I do not think it is a social disease though. Then you may have bleeding somewhere you should not and need to get checked out anyway.
My Period is Coming Every Two Weeks!
My period is coming every two weeks. What on Earth could cause that If you had a normal period and now have light spotting, it could be due to an embryo implanting. In another two weeks, you won't have your period or will see light spotting. This has been a regular, two week cycle. It could be result of a hormonal imbalance. PCOS comes to mind. P what PCOS is polycystic ovarian syndrome. Cysts on the ovaries prevent the body from having normal cycles. Or too many. Stress throw off your menstrual cycle, though you're more likely not to have a period.
Than two too many. Someone told me that diet and exercise can throw it off. When your body changes dramatically, you could have periods come closer together or delayed, but this is an extreme case. Someone said I might be in menopause. When someone is approaching menopause, their ovaries are shutting down. You'll see cycles without ovulation, multiple eggs released the next, going weeks without a period or periods only two weeks apart. I'm not that old. If you just switched to the birth control pill, you could have a period on your natural.
Cycle before the chemically induced one. I'm using what I've been using for ages. If you have cysts or fibroids, you could have internal bleeding. Because the blood is coming out of the vagina, you might mistake the internal bleeding for a period. It sounds like I need to get checked out by a doctor. Abnormal bleeding is always a reason to see a doctor. It's just an inconvenience. It could be a sign of ovarian cysts or hormonal problems. And bleeding that often could leave you anemic. That means pale.
What is Yeast Infection Candidiasis
Hey everyone you are now watching the naked truth where we take one of your questions about sex and your body and give a straightforward answer. I'm Shilpa and let's get started so today's question comes from a 19yearold from Kolkata. I have severe itching around my vagina and I'm getting burning discharge. my friend said it's a yeast infection but is this an STD I've never had sex. So from what it sounds like you do have candidiasis or commonly known as a yeast infection. A fungus that grows in warm and moist.
Places of the skin such as your mouth or your vagina. So normally a woman's vagina already has yeast however if there's some sort of imbalance this can lead to a buildup excess yeast which then results in white and odorless discharge burning when you pee and severe itchiness. but don't worry this is not STI it is a very common infection amongst women so go ahead and consult a doctor to make sure so that it is indeed a yeast infection and here she will give you some cream or some pills to have it cleared up.
My Vaginal Discharge Smells Like Bleach
My vaginal discharge smells like bleach. Your body can exude odors of strong foods like garlic you ate a lot of, but if you drank bleach, you'd be in the emergency room instead of talking to me. Please don't tell me you actually put bleach down there. As annoying as a yeast infection or bacterial infection is, chemical burns are worse. And before you ask, it isn't because I'm really into tidy whities. That doesn't mean you are not more colorful in your love life. I know there are women who put detergent down there to dry things out because the guys want.
It dry to improve the sex. I don't do anything more than douche. Your vaginal discharge could smell a little like bleach because the condoms or lubricants you used did. Of every flavor of condom or scent of oil we tried, nothing was anything like bleach. After all, it kills the mood. The chemistry down there can be altered by repeated use of condoms Which you should use. And the lubricants you've been using. All of it can combine to make a bleach like smell. I never thought rubber could cause me to smell more like chlorine.
If the vaginal smell is sour or stale, you probably have trichomoniasis. All I can think on hearing that is that it is a killer scrabble word. It is sometimes called just trich, pronounced trick. That I've heard of, but I don't know the significance. Trichomoniasis is a protozoan infection, and it causes a sour or even bleach like smell. So it is a social disease. Yes, but it can be treated with antibiotics. Most of them still can, though the rise of antibiotic resistant sexual diseases should give a lot of people nightmares.
This doesn't have to be a nightmare. Right after sex, it may smell a little like bleach because his semen does. That's what the condoms are intended to prevent. You could still have the smell in that area, depending on what you did prior to putting the condom on. Anything else to keep a nose out for Your period can alter the pH levels down there, giving it a metallic smell right before your period starts. That is why they have scented menstrual pads. Then that's your solution while you shift to a less odorific love life so the smell.
