    Not something i suffer with and the main reason why is i take a concentrated garlic tablet every day.  also good for headaches etc and a good all round antiviral .. You need the high does tablet version not the oil capsule one.

    Hi Rose have you had had it diagnosed by your doctor because it could be something else I was being treated for thrush for years itching soreness but it wasn't thrush I've seen a dermatologist after years of this problem and I have a condition called linchen planus o don't want to frighten you but this if left untreated can tune. To cancer it can anyway so please if you haven't seen your doctor go and get it checked out if your doctor doesn't know what you have ask to be sent to a dermatologist or gynecologist

    Hi Rose!

    Yes!!! I started in July, went through a solid month of being treated for yeast, then BV then yeast and start all over. Finally was diagnosed with dryness and atrophy. I was started on Estrace Cream and within a week my pH was back to normal and all my yeast infection symptoms disappeared. It could be a dryness issue messing with your pH and causing the problems...

    Good luck and keep us posted!

      The first time was on a Saturday, woke up miserable, so I went to Urgent Care. The second and third week I went to my GP, on the 4th week I demanded a referral to a gyno, took 2 visits with her to get to the bottom of it. I will now see her every few months from now on to keep tabs on the AV, I'm also going to pelvic floor physical therapy. I feel pretty much back to normal since starting the hormone cream. The other meno symptoms are getting ridiculous!

      My only saving grace is I had a hysto 16 yrs ago, kept my ovaries, but I don't have that pesky period to deal with. But, since I don't have a period I have no clue where I'm at in this process. Technically I've been post meno for 15 yrs bc of the absence of my monthly. I went through hot flashes and night sweats 5 yrs ago, I thought I was done. Boy was I wrong!
