Help me figure this out. PLEASE
I've been struggling with this for YEARS, through multiple doctors and no solution.
Here's what I know:
5 years ago DH & I mistakenly used a spicy cinnamon massage oil as lubricant (OUCH)= internal chemical burn
4 1/2 years ago- first ever metal tooth filling
Sometime in this period sex started becoming painful. I was very tender to the touch and would have a burning sensation immediately after sex, eventually the pain became constant. I have visited countless Drs and have been Dx'd with bacterial vaginitis and/or yeast infections over and over again. I also visited with the same symptoms and been told there's NOTHING WRONG (NO Yeast, no BV, nothing). Though I've always been told they were MILD infections. I've been prescribed antiobiotics, acidophilus, OTC yeast meds, etc.
I have VERY little CF and have been told that's just the way I am, that DH needs to be better at forplay, or for DH to brush his teeth....
Everytime I take antibiotics for WHATEVER reason I end up with 1)no vaginal pain and 2)a normal healthy CF (and plenty of it). This lasts until the next time (or 2) we DTD and then the pain & dryness return.
I've also seen a naturopath about this and was told i had too much candida (same as yeast right?) b/c of the metal filling. Was given an antifungal/anti yeast remedy that helped for about 3 days.
Seems like everything only helps for about 3 days.
The last Dr I saw (who I'm supposed to follow up with soon) gave me a list of things to try to see if it helped (sleep bottomless, wear cotton panties, etc) and said if those don't work she's going to recommend BOTOX INJECTIONS DOWN THERE
(the remedies haven't worked)
why would anitbiotics make me produce good quality cervical fluid and sex take it away? Using/not using condoms, lubricant, washing afterwards (water only)....the results are always the same. I take lactobacilius acidophilus daily.
