Recurring vaginal yeast infection

Posted , 5 users are following.

Has anyone suffered from recurring vaginal yeast infections.  Diflucan did not help me.  I used boric acid suppositories for a month and it cleared up.  10 days later another yeast infection.  Has anyone continually used boric acid suppositories?

I see the Dr. tomorrow to get checked. Thanks.

    If you still have this try to wash yourself with boiled Betel leaves. I had it for 2 years and treated it in one week!!! Wash the leaves, crush it in your hands, boiled it for 15min and wait for it to cool down, douche with it I guarantee it works!!!!!

      Using Terazol vaginal cream for yeast as well as boric acid suppositories.  Also, using Premarin 3x a week.  My Dr. suggested Mona Lisa touch laser therapy.  He should have it in a few months.  It is supposed to eradicate vaginal problems due to atrophy.  Unfortunately, insurance in the U.S. does not cover procedures.

    Try Fugacil topical cream. I was in the same situation as you. My vaginal yeast infection returned after my period for months. I couldn't take anti-fungal medications since they caused my nausea. Also, I never tried diflucan or boric acid suppositories. I went to a doctor and she gave me fugacil. After a few days, the infection did disappear and no symptom returns.
