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.
Things Women Dont Know About Their Periods
Voiceover It happens about once a month so you may think you're an expert. Well sit back down because there are quite a few things women don't know about their periods. The average period can release anywhere from one cup down to a few tablespoons of blood which really isn't that much. It just seems like a lot because you don't just lose blood, you also shed tissue and mucus. Whoa, that's kind of badass. For decades blue liquid has been the default standin for menstrual blood in advertisements for feminine products.
However, in 2011 Always broke this trend and used a red dot. I wish my period was just one red dot. In the US tampons are the most popular method to trap the flow. Reportedly 70 of women in the western world use them. But that's certainly not the only way. Some studies suggest that your menstrual cycle may be tied to the moon with the most common start date for a cycle beginning on the new moon. That's kind of beautiful. But everybody's different. Cycles can vary in length from 21 to 35 days.
And are typically longer during the first few years of menstruation and that's totally normal. Feeling less than graceful No worries. Right before your period you might bump into more things. Clumsiness can be an unfortunate side effect of PMS. Time is also an unfortunate side effect. A woman can spend around 7 to 10 of her life on her period. That's a whole lot of time. Humans are magical creatures. We're one of the few beasts on the planet that have visible periods. Some other animals reabsorb their uterine lining.
Bloody Good Period Hacks
Voiceover Bloating, cramping, aching, moodiness, yeah you know periods suck, but don't take your period laying down. Hack it with these bloody good period hacks. Cramps are the result of your uterus contracting, sometimes so hard you lose blood flow to the uterus. On top of that, the best stuff, caffeine, salt, fat, and alcohol can make cramping worse. So ease up on those offenders, and you have to chug a ton of water. It's not fun, it's not fair, but it'll help your uterus chill. Ease pain with exercise.
Dance is good, yoga is great, but the best form of exercise for cramping is sex. I mean, sex relaxes your muscles, it releases dopamine, and flushes out the uterine lining. So while it might be a mess, it's for a good cause. And going solo is as good, if not better. When it's that time of the month your blood sugar may drop, and your brain sends out the signal, Feed me now or I am gonna get hangry. Don't grab the candy and cake. Instead, reach for the chocolate.
Can I Treat My Yeast Infection During My Period
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.
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.
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.
Can You Have Implantation Bleeding 5 Days Past Ovulation
Can you have implantation bleeding 5 days past ovulation It usually takes six or seven days for the egg to migrate from the ovary to the uterus to implant. Then five days would be faster than usual but still in the realm of possibility. Or it is possible you're wrong about the ovulation date. I track all the physical signs. You could have mistaken a pulled stomach muscle from yoga for the minor ovary pain about one in five women have when the follicle containing the egg bursts. PMS is bad enough for me I'm glad I do not have that.
If you were tracking cervical mucus, it shifts from thick, white and gooey to clear and watery when you ovulate. You could have mistaken the lotion like transition form for the ovulation and been off by a day. A day off on the ovulation date that way means I'm either four days seeing implanting or right on schedule. If you were tracking ovulation based on the calendar, the norm is half way through or day 14, but if you actually ovulate around day 10 or 12, implanting right now would be.
Normal. What else could it be You could also have an STD and mistake the bleeding from irritated open sores for implantation. If that's true, I need to see an OBGYN anyway. Some women see spots of blood because they wore too tight pants an irritated the genital area that skin's really thin. And yet a baby is supposed to fit through there. There's a reason it hurts, and generates a lot of bodily fluids. There's also the possibility you're mistaking other bodily fluids for a few drops of blood. It is way too early for my period.
A lot of women miss the blood spots of implantation because they do not actually develop any, while others mistake thick yellow or orange cervical mucus for it. Blood plus white cervical mucus equals orange. Yeah, but a bad yeast infection or sexually transmitted disease can create the same symptoms. I'm trying to get pregnant, and life is the only sexually transmitted disease I should be dealing with right now. It would be highly unusual to have implantation on day 5 after ovulation unless you're just wrong on the ovulation date.
Vaginal Discharge During Menopause
I need your input on vaginal discharge during menopause. When you're going through menopause, you'll have your period less often or less intensely before it finally shuts off. I know menopause isn't an off switch but more a slow fade. When you're going through menopause, you'll see similar shifts in vaginal discharge like white and sticky to dry right before your period, but you may not see the clear and slippery phase for ovulation. Because I might not ovulate. However, when you're going through menopause, there's still a chance you'll get pregnant.
And have a kid with a higher risk of health problems. Or multiples. As your eggs hit their expiration date, the body offsets it by releasing multiple eggs. What other vaginal discharge should I expect during menopause If it starts to smell sweet down there, you're probably developing diabetes especially so if the urine smells sweet and looks like syrup too. A rash of repeated yeast infections can be a symptom of diabetes too. And your odds of adult onset diabetes go up with age. What else should I know.
With age, the vaginal discharge goes down, which is why older women tend to need lubrication, since the body doesn't make as much. And while a lack of lubrication and make you more sensitive to yeast and bacterial infections, using too much lubrication can alter pH levels and do the same. You'll know you have one of those infections by the foul smelling discharge if it is bacterial and the fish smell with yellow and solid masses if yeast based. Fortunately, I haven't had to do a smell test to see what is wrong.
If you get red or brown vaginal discharge, you'll probably want to talk to a doctor. We already discussed how your period fades away at this age. Yes, but red blood that's constant indicates lesions or a serious infection, while brown blood can be a period that's not complete or internal bleeding. Okay, that's a reason to talk to the doctor. And just because you don't have to use birth control anymore doesn't mean you don't have to use birth control. Menopause is all natural birth control. Just because you can't get pregnant anymore doesn't mean you can't get a sexually.
My Cervical Mucus Looks Like Snot
Tell me why my cervical mucus looks like snot. I do not know why you are looking at it at all. It is supposed to be an easy way to determine your fertility. True. When it is clear, watery and very slippery, that's when you are ovulating. It is supposed to transition to that form when you are ovulating because the higher hormone levels trigger it. The mucus is like raw egg white mucus you can stretch an inch or two means at your most fertile. The watery type is second best, and that's the type the day before and after.
The fertile peak. My mucus is way thicker than that. It is normally white, thick and sticky. It is thick, white and sticky but has clumps in it. The tacky cervical mucus is the least fertile type. And clumps of it together means you're in an infertile period. The consistency seems different though. It normally gets thicker and a lot tackier with a few clumped together pieces together right before your period starts. And you might not normally be checking the cervical mucus at that point because a period would prove you didn't conceive.
I have a week or so before my period is due. It can get thicker and drier due to dehydration or use of decongestants. I'm not taking any decongestants. It gets whiter, thicker and heavier if you have an infection. I thought it would change colors. If the cervical mucus is the color and consistency of green snot, you need to talk to a doctor. Likewise if it is yellow. If it is yellow and thick, I'd think it was a yeast infection. A fishy odor is the sign of a yeast infection. But any color of thick heavy mucus other than.
White means you need to get treatment for an STD. What if it is orange or has flecks of red in it Red plus white means yellow or orange, and the red comes from blood. Unless your period is starting, you have an infection. Or there's something else going on. It is hard to get so dehydrated that your cervical mucus is as dried out as your constipation. I've heard the snot like consistency is good. If you did conceive, you could see snot like chunks as the body puts out so much mucus.
