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.
How Can I Get Instant Relief Form Vaginal Yeast Infections
Good day there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher. Here's a question I've got from a lady in Texas, a Mrs. Wright from Texas. And her question is Eric, how can I get instant relief from vaginal thrush Well, there are a couple of tricks and tips I'll give you in this tutorial that are certainly going to help you. Many woman complain of vaginal thrush three to four days prior to their period. You can have vaginal thrush at any time during your menstrual cycle, but it's more prevalent before the cycle. And if you're a female and you have recurring.
Vaginal yeast infections, you can probably well relate to what I'm saying here. So if you think about this for a moment, there's a couple of things I'm going to tell you that make a lot of sense and I'd like you to follow these suggestions. Leading up to the period, about a week or 10 days prior, why don't you start reducing consumption of alcohol, chocolate, sweet foods, candies, biscuits or cookies, things like this, or cut those foods out of the diet as much as you can. Make some changes. Get more.
Rest. Drink plenty of water. Maybe have some green juice in your diet. Start making some changes also to the way that you work and you relax. So sleep a little bit more, rest up a bit more, take it a bit easier in your life. These things are going to make it easier for you to cope with if you do get any aggravations. When it comes to the treatment, it's also good for you to maybe avoid sexual relations for a little while prior to your period as well because this could irritate the area.
And make you much more prone to having the vaginal thrush. If you look at these sort of factors, this is going to reduce the aggravation, which means that there will be less need for strong treatment. There are different cleansing approaches you can use. And one I'd like to recommend you try is to get some Calendula tincture. So Calendula officinalis is an herb which we use, an antifungal, and I think it works very well indeed. And I've written about this in my book in Chapter 5 in Candida Crusher written about Calendula. Go to your herbalist and.
Get a low alcohol concentration Calendula tincture, a high quality one, and use it at the rate of about a dessertspoon per small bowl of lukewarm water for cleansing. This is going to work quite nicely before the period. So women tell me these things work quite well. Others are colloidal silver, adding a teaspoon of this per small quantity of water for cleansing a good quality apple cider vinegar, not the commercial one, but a good organic pasteurized product like Braggs is a good quality, for example, or try the Calendula tincture. These are good approaches to use premenstrually.
In my book, I talk about a cleansing stage you do before the period, a kill stage, and then a build stage after the period. And this makes a lot of sense. And if you do that for three menstrual cycles in a row, you're going to get good relief, particularly if you follow the instructions in my book Chapter 7, Section 5, the lifestyle section. If you read that and implement that plus also do the acute measures that we spoke about, you're going to get a lot of relief.
How Many Days After My Period is Ovulation
How many days after my period is ovulation I need to know. Ovulation is half way through the average cycle. Is that half way based on first bleeding or when I stop bleeding or what Day one is when the lining starts to shed. AKA, it is really obvious once you start bleeding. You stop bleeding anywhere from day three to day seven. Obviously you do not ovulate at that point. Ovulation can occur anywhere from day 10 to day 24. So on a day 14, that is two days after my period started, is when I ovulate.
Right. And ovulation will be seven to ten days after your period ended, on average, depending on how long it lasts. Ovulation is not always on day 14. So track your menstrual cycle, and you'll figure out which day is half way. Except that you said it could be half way plus or minus a couple days. On a 30 day cycle, 3 days is a ten percent margin of error, while the egg only lasts one. You will see changes to indicate when you ovulated, such as the cervical mucus changing.
I hardly even notice it except when bleeding or fish smelling. A fish smell means you have a yeast infection. Bleeding usually means you have your period, an STD with lesions causing bleeding or, for only a few, dried blood drops because your ovary released a little blood when the egg came out. But a few drops of blood on the panties can also mean an embryo implanted. You'll ovulate between day 13 and day 15 for most women, counting from the day your period started. An embryo implanting will be three to seven days after that.
So a few drops of blood a few days before my period is due means I'm pregnant. It might mean you are pregnant, or you used too much douche or half a dozen other reasons. And anything but pregnancy and feminine hygiene is bad. You'll ovulate a week to a week and a half after your period ends, but I'd say the cervical mucus turning clear and watery instead of thick and gooey or your BBT going up is a better indicator than a calendar. What is BBT BBT stands for basal body temperature, your body temperature at rest. It spikes the day.
Is it Normal to Spot During My First Trimester
Is it normal to spot during my first trimester It is normal to spot in the first days when the embryo implants, though it often means the vaginal discharge is orange or pink because blood mixed with the normal secretions. I'm past that point. If you're up to the point where the early pregnancy tests say yep, you're pregnant, there is the possibility you'll still spot as the menstrual cycle is turned off. If my period starts, I've lost the baby. It is estimated that that happens half the time. And yes, you could have spotting in.
The first month because you got pregnant and did not stay pregnant. I'm past the first month, but I'm still in the first trimester. I've heard spotting is normal and that it is something to run to the doctor for. Heavy bleeding like a period past the first month is a sign of something wrong, though whether a miscarriage or detached placenta, only the doctor would know. I do not even know what a detached placenta is. Sometimes the placenta detaches from the uterine wall, causing heavy bleeding like a period.
But it can be heavier than a period and even life threatening. To the baby, of course. And to you, so if there's blood gushing, rush to the ER. Or have someone else take me. But I'm only seeing spotting, not enough blood to suit a horror movie. You can have some spotting from an infection, like an STD flaring up during pregnancy. That requires treatment too. And sometimes it is due to tears in the vaginal wall. I'm already pregnant, so what could be tearing it. Sex while pregnant might, and straining and stretching as the kid grows and you try to.
Do the yoga moves you used to. I'm already having trouble reaching down and around. I'm not going to do contortions. Spotting could be a sign of ectopic pregnancy, as the fetus grows where the body cannot accommodate it, so it presses on surrounding tissue and you get bleeding. I've heard of women going in thinking they had appendicitis with that. If the bleeding is accompanied by constant pressure and pain, you do need to go to the doctor, even if the blood is only spotting right now. Any other causes I need to know about before I get paranoid.
Does Stress Cause Yeast Infections
Good day, Eric Bakker here again with another frequently asked question regarding yeast infection. Does stress cause yeast infections Stress causes many different problems in the body, many different problems, and a good way for you probably to look at it from this angle is that about 90 percent of all visits to the doctor are because of a stressrelated complaint. So stress has an amazingly insidious effect on the immune system. In the initial stages of stress when a person's under high stress, they will have heightened hormone response they'll have more cortisol and more adrenaline, in particular. The adrenals are going to pump.
Out more of these hormones to allow you to cope with the acute manifestations of stress. However, once stress continues unabated, you keep having these problems long term, relationship problems or money problems, many different types of issues that face us on a daytoday basis. When they become chronic and longterm, even though low grade, they'll have a depleting effect on the adrenal system, what we call the HPA stress excess. And over time, these hormones actually will not only decrease in quantity, but their activity will decrease in the body. The cells become less responsive requiring even more hormones to be pumped.
Out and produced. Over a period of time, it's just not really going to happen and you slowly slide into a condition we call adrenal fatigue. I'm going to explain a lot more about the adrenalyeast connection in other tutorials. But stress is certainly implicated with yeast infections. How do you know that yeast infections are caused by stress If you take a look at my book, I think it's page 469 in my book. You can read a lot more about the adrenal stress connection with immunity. Have a look at the other type of problems that you may be facing.
Like fatigue, insomnia, irritability, in particular. There are different ways that stress can affect you in terms of a yeast infection. First thing I would ask you, what type of stresses have you faced in the past several years Can you remember any stressful events which preceded the diagnosis of this yeast infection, for example There's often a link there. If you think carefully, you'll find a connection there. So as cortisol goes down further and further, it's going to be harder for your immune system to stay strong, which will increase your susceptibility and reduce.
Your resistance. I generally draw a line for a patient when I see them to explain this concept, and I'll put susceptibility on one side and resistance on the other side, and I'll draw a little triangle here in the middle. As your susceptibility decreases, your resistance goes up. And vice versa will happen. When this goes down, this goes up. As things are getting harder for you to cope with and you become more stressed, your resistance goes down and your susceptibility will come up. I call these events contributing to that health busters. Health builders are things you can.
How to Check Your Cervix for Signs of Pregnancy
I want to know how to check your cervix for signs of pregnancy. That's not exactly something easy to check. I've heard you could check, without relying on a doctor or nurse and sitting in stirrups. It is normally low and hard. Well lower, since too low is a prolapse, which is bad. I heard that during ovulation, it is usually lower than normal. And that it feels like a nose tip. If you got pregnant, it will rise back up toward its normal level. It does that if I did not get pregnant too, before my period starts.
It will become softer, which is called ripening. As long as it does not smell. Pregnant women are prone to more yeast infections. I do not know if I'm pregnant yet. The cervix will be soft when it rises back up, but not as hard and continually softening. What makes it soft After the embryo implants, it bloats with blood. However, it sometimes rises up high enough that women cannot feel that physical change with their long middle finger. And I do not want to have sex again to get his opinion of the feeling.
I know what you can feel for yourself. I'm afraid to ask. The cervical mucus is watery and nearly clear when you ovulate. That's to let the sperm through. The cervical mucus is more white and thicker when you're not pregnant. I'd only know that I'm not pregnant by the cervical mucus if I tracked that before. If you got pregnant, you'd see more cervical discharge. However, whether it is watery and clear or heavy and light depends on your body type. Will it be like a period No, but if you have your period, you know you are not pregnant.
I've heard pregnancy can cause light spotting. If you see red drops in the cervical mucus, you probably implanted. If the mucus has an orange tint from blood drops mixing with the mucus, that may be a sign of pregnancy. Or an STD. How else can I tell Stop trying to divine bodily fluids and go buy an early pregnancy test. I'll be testing for a while before I'm certain of the answer. Wait a couple of months, and you may be asking me about the cervix changes that indicate that you're going into labor.
What Kind of Discharge Do You Have During Pregnancy
What kind of discharge do you have during pregnancy It's like a waterfall. Excuse me Vaginal discharge is normal for all women, and it just gets worse during pregnancy. It's embarrassing. So wear absorbent pads so it doesn't affect your clothes. You can use the same pads you do when you are having your period. I noticed spotting around the time I conceived, though it wasn't nearly as much as a period. And you probably saw white discharge after you conceived. I was worried it might be an STD. If you think you have an STD, you need to get treated now so that it doesn't adversely.
Affect the baby. There are horrifying Google images of birth defects caused by sexually transmitted diseases. I'm already paranoid about the baby. I don't even want to dye my hair, paint my nails or do anything else. Brown discharge sometimes happens, especially after minor vaginal tears after sex. However, if you see bright red blood, you need to see a doctor. Because I'm miscarrying. Or the placenta is separating, or you have placenta previa. Or you're in labor, early or not. What if it is another color like yellow or green.
You might have a yeast infection or STD. Pregnant women, especially those with high blood sugar, are at risk of horrible yeast infections. And what if it is clear It might be normal discharge, or you might be losing amniotic fluid. If in doubt, you need to get tested. Very much so. What if it is a big glob Then you might have lost the mucus plug, and then you need to see the doctor because it's a sign of labor. How do you know all this Believe me, I have seen it all.
Oh hi! As you may have noticed, your vagina does not come with an owner's manual. Although, I can tell you that would have been really helpful and saved me a lot of infections growing up. Vaginas work basically like this. It's like a little ecosystem. It maintains and cleans itself. The actual vagina, the inside, you never have to clean in there. And you don't ever want to put anything in there. Well, nothing to clean in there. That includes douches, soaps, bleach. squeals What all that stuff does is go all up in there,.
And it bleep everything up. And the vagina has good bacteria that keeps you clean and healthy. By introducing soap or douching, you kill off that good bacteria, and you can mess up the delicate pH balance of the vagina, which can cause a yeast infection or also something called bacterial vaginosis, which is characterized by a fishy smell. You can also get urinary tract infections from getting soap around your rurethra, your urethra. Yeah, I can talk! So, any time you see the soap, it's coming towards your vagina, you say, Get away, soap!.
We are not cool, be gone! Now, in terms of keeping the outside clean, the proper way to clean your vulva is to gently spread your labia or the lips, and then use some warm water and your hand to gently rub between the folds and clear off all the sweat and bacteria. So, you mean I shouldn't use shampoo No. What about shaving cream Only on the hair part. What about toothpaste That's for your teeth. Oh yeah. Vaginas are not nearly as dirty as people think they are. You want dirty.
Probe someone's mouth. Warm water, your hands, a washcloth, or a loofah. That's all you need to stay clean. I swear on my vagina! I think a lot of the reason why people scrub vigorously with soap is because they want it to smell really good. They're selfconscious about when someone goes down on them. But in most cases, you don't gotta trip. It's normal for the vagina to have a mild scent. Every vagina smells different. The only time you need to worry is if it smells pungent or really strong,.
Because that could be telling you you have an infection. If you're still feeling selfconscious about someone going down on you, just take a little dab of your favorite perfume, and put it between your thighs. And then there's the question of discharge. Discharge, that clear or milky white stuff that comes out of your vagina throughout the month, that is your vagina's cleaning process. The color, consistency, and quantity of discharge throughout the month will change, but only subtly. You wake up in the morning with a rainbow in your panties,.
There's probably something up. I always think it's funny when my partner thinks that I'm really turned on, but it's actually just discharge. But I mean, for all intents and purposes, it works the same way. Now, some parting wisdomish. I have found the vagina trifecta. They are cotton undies, garlic, and yogurt. Wearing cotton undies allows your vagina to breathe. I mean, you like breathing, right So does your vagina. I'll wear other types of undies, too, but I'll try to make sure to wear mostly cotton. I also try to incorporate lots of garlic.
