My vaginal infection story is a little different so I thought I might share just in case it helps someone. I had just found out about candida and started taking probiotics, some supplements, and eating a somewhat candida diet. I developed a sever vaginal infection to where I had to go to an urgent care because I was in so much pain and I could not get in to see my doctor. The doctor did the examination and then started asking relationship questions. He than told me that I have an STD and that my husband must have been unfaithful to me. I explained that was not possible. He thought that it must be a STD because how bad it was. He pressured me to taking shots for a whole bunch of STDs and told me if I did not that I might not be able to have children in the future. I told him that I would not take anything without getting real results. Plus I knew my husband would never cheat on me. A few days later I went to my regular doctor. She got the test results back and I had no STDs and nothing else was wrong. By this time I started to figured out that the proboitcs and other supplements I was taking might have shocked my system. Who would have thought that something good for me could cause such a reaction. So I stopped taking them for a while and the problem cleared up. I then slowly added everything that I was taking and never had a problem again. So my advice to anyone is slowly add supplements in instead of changing everything in a weeks time.
Thanks for the great info,
What a horrible story! Until I came to this forum I never realised that candida was such a common problem. It was my GP who suggested I probably suffer from it but I’m getting no help in getting rid of it.
