DH and I haven't dtd since I ovulated over 6 weeks ago so it's not that. It's also not the same infection because after the first one my doc collected a sample to check for yeast and said it was clear. That was after I had already treated it and my symptoms were gone. They were gone completely until the day after I saw the doc again. He puts his fingers on my perineum and swipes up to my vagina but doesn't go as far as my urethra. It feels to me like maybe he starts just a little too far back on my perineum. KWIM? Same thing happened after my appointment last week. I felt fine until actually the night of the appointment. That was Tuesday. By yesterday I knew for sure it was yeast again, put a garlic clove in over night and now I feel fine.
I meant I can't stand the taste of yogurt. I have never liked it. I just can't eat it. It's like shrimp for me. Every few years I think I should like it because everyone else does so I try it again and I can't even swallow it because it's so nasty to me. And I read that the yogurt that is sold in stores is so loaded with sugar anyway that it defeats the purpose of any of the probiotics in it. Even the plain organic yogurt I have seen has sugar in it. Oh, and I haven't had any abx in years.
I haven't had a YI in years, either, so it's really bothering me. My doc prescribed diflucan, which I took once after the first one because it got really bad and nothing seemed to be helping and I couldn't stand it anymore. It was after that that he looked at a culture and said the yeast was gone. I don't feel comfortable taking that again, though, especially weekly because it's a class C pg drug even though my doc says it's fine. Don't all docs pretty much say that whatever they prescribe should be fine? When I was pg with ds3 I thought I had a YI (turned out I didn't) and the OB then prescribed a cream with a black box warning. I was like, WTH?! I read that in small doses over a short period of time diflucan doesn't seem to cause a problem but there have been incidents of serious, fatal birth defects when taken in large doses over long periods of time.
The garlic clove seems to work and doesn't have any side effects or contraindications, I don't think. I just wish I didn't have to keep doing it over and over.
