I’m debating reintroducing diflucan weekly or biweekly again. I still have an Rx for it.
My story again: I’m a female who never ever had vaginal problems until a little over a year ago. I got a bacterial infection and took a round of antibiotics. This gave me a YI. I took diflucan for 3 months (biweekly) to clear it up but the yeast came back. It worked for like a month, but then still got 2 YIs. I stopped taking it. It was at that time, about 18 weeks (4 1/2 months) ago I found this site and went on the strict diet. Ever since, instead of having a YI almost every day, I get YI symptoms with my period at the onset of menstruation. In addition to the diet I take many vitamins that are recommended, rotate 2 antifungals, and use the probiotics recommended on the site. Just as an FYI, I did not do a cleanse first. I didn’t think I could handle it. I worked my way up to the strict diet because it was hard at first. I also have been putting some coconut oil on my vaginal lips 2x a day. I think these things are helping, but I am nowhere near where I should be..which in my mind is symptom free!
I am wondering if, now that I’m on this diet and am getting some control over the yeast infections (though I am NO WHERE near where I should be) that I should add diflucan again. I don’t know that I can say I have an intestinal yeast overgrowth, but I obviously have a vaginal one. I have no other symptoms except for vaginal yeast infections.
What do you guys think? Could this help me nip this thing in the bud?
I will give you my best advice. Call Dr. Crandall by phone and speak with her. One time you do it, you will know the correct way to eliminate the persistent vaginal infection. Listen, I don’t have any business with it. I know her, and know you can not be on a better hand to deal with your problem. Again, I want to help you because you are suffering. That is it. She knows everything about the diets, intestinal overgrowth, this syndrome, and more.
Do yourself a favor. Call her ! It will cost you $ 30 half hour. Enough to tell her your problem and to get her direction.
