    UGH! aren't yeast infections just a pain in the cooch?! seriously! i am on my second yeast infection within a 12 month period. it itches like crazaaaaaaayyy and i haven't masturbated in almost a week. i bought a monistat pack with the suppository and used it over the weekend. however, the itching hasn't completely gone away yet. am i just be a crabby patty, or is this a sign i should go to the creepy old gyno with ice cold hands and yellow teeth? (refer to my older blog entries if you don't know what i mean.)

    Yest Infections = The itch from hell! Benadryl is good but I would strongly suggest a trip to the gyno. I can't stand those cold hand and especially the heel cups that just force you to show your business to the world but there will be relief at then end. I will say that I got my first bout in a long time after being with a very well endowed friend. All that friction can stir the wrong things up and throw everything out of wack! Go to the doctor Stacy. Your coochie will be very happy you did.

    Are you on anti-biotics Stacy? If not, I would try a different medication before spending the money on a gyno (I know you all have to pay for that in the States right?). You inserted the yuck ball but wasn't there a cream that comes with it?

    Stacy,,

    You need to go to the doctor. You may not even have a yeast infection. This is a common problem. Have the doctor tell you what medication you need to take. You may have a bacterial infection or an allergic reaction to something , either way you need to get it checked out. Also... get you blood glucose levels checked. I hate to say it but that is also a warning sign for type 2 diabetes... If it is a stubborn yeast infection the doctor may ultimately give you diflucans which is orally ingested. Good luck!

    i've never had one before, but it would probably be best to just go to the doctor and have them give you whatever it is you need to feel better, instead of buying OTC drugs that might make the itch go away just a little or not at all.

    So get a new gyno who isn't so gross and has warm hands. :rolleyes: :duh::

    JoyBunny, Naughty and everyone else who said go to a doctor are correct. It could also be two things at once such as Honeymoon Cystitis plus a bacterial infection. If Monistat doesn't cure it then it's most likely not a yeast infection and you must see a doctor.


    hahaha :rofl: ROTFLMAO :lmao:

    Hey, Stac, listen to Naughty!

    - - - -

    I'd also look at what else might be going on health-wise. Antibiotics are a killer. Poor nutrition is another killer. Irritants in/on baths, jacuzzi's and unclean toys can also cause problems.

    - - - -

    And no, sex with a cock, big or small, does NOT cause women to have yeast infections. :rolleyes:

    could be anything from condoms *nonoxynol-9* to ya laundry soap.

    a doctor visit will clear up a lot of questions. ya could try a few home remedies if ya don't wanna deal with the creepy vag doc.

    ML

    be careful with using OTC or prescription treatments too often, can lead to treatment resistant yeast infections.

    Yogurt and/or acidophilus capsules help with those issues. Basically, they keep the 'good' bacteria at a decent level. Just a suggestion.

    It can take up to seven days for the medication to work- even the "one day" treatments take this long, so next time get the combo pack that has the ovule or whatever you prefer and a cream to help with itching. I think they sell the cream by itself too. If it's still itching after a week, then it may be something else. Yeast infections suck and need to die imho. You're excused for being a crabby patty,:tongue: i think yeast infections are worse than pms.

    Thanks others for sharing your useful information. Though I'm male, I would like to pass on some tidbits that my medical sis' (she's EMT, Neurosurgury Nurse, Triage Nurse, etc...) told w/ me years ago... who knows, someone may benefit:

    Other than treatment via regular medical care, there are some supplemental tips that many find useful. Antibiotics create an environment for Candida yeast to thrive in, killing off the good Acidophilis flora that naturally populate there and kept yeast at bay. Simple Biotin (like a vitamin) supplement inhibits yeast. If vinegar/water douching can be tolerated, yeast cannot thrive in the high "acid" condition that vinegar produces.

    All the best!

    thanks for your suggestions everyone. i actually have been taking antibiotics and i think that could have been the source of my problem. the dr. prescribed me antibiotics and cough syrup for when i had the flu earlier this month. i stopped taking the antibiotics, then started up again, then stopped because of the irritation. i noticed that the day i took the pills it flared up really bad. although i don't officially know if it's even a yeast infection, heck, maybe i'm diagnosing myself, but i was irritated as hell and had all the symptoms of a yeast infection.

    i used the monistat suppository last saturday night before bed, so i'm guessing i still have to wait a few more days to see if it's completely gone or not. the box came with some feminine wipes, which i LOVE btw and i encourage everyone to get some, and a small tube of cream that works wonders! the irritation has calmed down but i still feel a little itchy here and there.

    aside from the monistat, i am calling the gyno tomorrow and making an appointment to see what's up. plus it'll get me out of work for a few hours, lol. i will keep you all updated on my status. i appreciate everyone's concern.

    :yikes: Stacy, Stacy, Stacy! Where have you been? :confused: You never stop taking an antibiotic until there are no pills left. :rolleyes: To stop and start like you did is how antibiotic resistant strains of strep, and other bacterial infections are created. :frown1:

    Next time you are prescribed an antibiotic ask the doc for diflucan at the same time. Most docs wn't even ask why as they know that the majority of women get yeast infections from antibiotics.

    I never had any success with the cream - it's yucky and nasty and yuck! Diflucan always does the trick for me.

    And yes, if you are on an antibiotic, FINISH IT. And many anti-biotics result in yeast, so ASK.

    I also find if I don't use condoms, I'm ripe to get infections. :-(

    Wrap it. Who cares what THEY say. Wrap it. Everytime.
