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.
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.
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.
Discharge before period ! White discharge before period
Discharge before period When you are about to start your period, sometimes there is a lot of white discharge that builds up very unpleasantly. The white discharge before your period is actually a form of mucus that is naturally produced from the neck of the wombscientifically called the cervix. The amount of white discharge will vary throughout your menstrual cycle and most pregnant women will get something that is known as a pregnancy discharge. A healthy white discharge does not have a strong smell or color. There is the uncomfortable wetness, but you should not have any itching or soreness around your vagina. If you are.
Experiencing those symptoms, then seek medical help from your doctor. Do I Have Normal or Abnormal Discharge Normal white discharge before period The white discharge before your period is actually completely normal and natural. The white discharge before your period is mainly from the uterus and cervix, but is not a beginning of an infection. The white discharge that you are experiencing is only caused from congestion of your pelvis, which is why the white discharge is really just mucus. A couple of days before your period, the process that leads to menstruation may cause an initial leak of clear fluid.
This is not an infection, either. An excessive white or clear discharge in the middle of your period is quite common. Abnormal white discharge before period Typically, the vaginal discharge is normal, but there are some cases where the discharge can indicate an infection. If your discharge is not clear or white and it is really yellow or green, then you may have one of the following infections, or abnormal discharge Yeast Infection A common infection that most women get after sex, and sometimes randomly, is a yeast infection. This is when the white discharge appears more like cottage cheese. There are over the counter.
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.
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.
