Hello everyone, hope you are all well. This is gonna be a rather longer post but I don't know where should I seek help anymore.
I used to be a healthy female (I'm currently 22yo) until I took BIRTH CONTROL pill (with estrogen) due to my PCOS. After just 2 weeks of taking it, I got yeast infection - before I have had it during my life till I was 21yo maybe 3 times and cleared up very easily, got tested on OB-GYN every year and got prescribed only pills which I needed.
Back to the topic - I took BC pill and got yeast so obviously I went for cultures to OB-GYN- she took them, prescribed me pill (i had c. albicans). I took Macmiror that time, it didn't clear up the symtomps. I don't need to mention I eat probiotics and I almost never eat sugar and don't douche, never use even feminine products and also wipe front-back. My diet was very strict at that time too. So I went back right after anti mycotic treatment - cultures came back POSITIVE for c.albicans. I felt no RELIEF even after 12 days of anti mycotic treatment. I was still on pill at that time. She prescribed me oral itraconazole for 3 days, I took it - no improvement, insane itching, white chunks and cracks on vagina, couldn't even sleep from inflamed tissue. OBGYN thought I have bad reaction to MACMIROR but I knew it wasn't the case ... I went back right after 3 days of itraconazole and got tested cultures again - POSITIVE for c. albicans. At that time she said there is nothing she can prescribe me anymore and sent me home with GYNOFLOR. Of course I couldn't even sleep and went to GP at hospital to ER. They did some douche and also prescribed me nystatin ovules. I took them and NOTHING changed. At that time I stopped taking BC pill ( it was 1 month and 12 days after I started taking it!!!), got period and during that week I felt somewhat better, but still infected. After the period stopped symptomps came right away back with full blown candida infection. I forgot to mention I had no sexual life at all!
I was being suicidal because of the pain,I had insanely inflamed tissue and no one was being able to do anything for me, nothing was calming it down, cultures never came back negative and I had insane itch/pain/inflammed tissue. I let it be for a while but it didn't improve, I used to sleep 1 hr /night due to pain. I ended up visiting different OBGYN, went to immunologist - my tests didn't show anything abnormal. OBGYN tested my to come back with c.albicans infection again and prescribed fenticonazole nitrate. I took medicine and then got period and took another pill (2 pills in total, 1 1st day, another 3rd day). I felt somewhat broken, tissue was in horrible condition after that and then I started doing a lot of weird alternative therapies as a last resort. That kinda helped and when I got tested after month i was clear in cultures, BUT I felt totally dry. Was prescribed lactobacillus live culture pills with estriol, took them for 2 weeks, but it didn't help at all! Now I have insane dryness persisting for months without relief during day - during sex it works fine, but during day I itch as crazy and even those hydrating gels don't help. I hate to imagine I am gonna be like this till I die because I once took BC pill which completely messed my body, hormones up. I don't know what to do and never found anyone who was basically resistant to all treatments. A few days ago I found out after being tested at OBG that I have c. albicans infection again, got prescribed fenticonazole, took it, and feel the same dryness/ itchiness, nothing helped, even lactobacilli etc in pills vaginally. Doing nothing is not an option, I'm taking alternative herbs from my alternative therapist but it's a long term and gonna take a lot of time. I don't get what could happen to change my healthy, moisturized (during day) vag to this after few BC pills. Guess I'm one in milliard or something, I have never heard anything like this.. it makes me frustrated and my life became just constant worry about getting another infection on which won't work anything, or being dry as savana till I die because I took that damned BC pill.
Also I need to mention I got UTI yday out of sudden after yeast treatment - I didn't do anything, was at home, drank enough, took my daily dole of probiotics... now taking antibiotics due to severe pain and gonna take probiotics few hours later so I don 't flare up with another yeast infection which would make me want to kill myself.
Thanks for hearing me
