Yeasr Infections

Yeasr Infections

I would like to know if other women had problems with constant yeast infections before their diagnoses. What happened after starting on meds? I fought them sometimes twice a month for several years. I could count on them every month. Once I started Avonex in 2008, praise God I have not had even one!!!

Probiotics!! Multi-strain probiotics help both yeast issues AND MS...been taking them for years and have not been having relapses!!

I'm so afraid of the urodynamic test that I stopped complaining! I've been just trying to not worry about it because I have a HUGE fear of catheters. I should inquire about those meds.

I wouldn't be surprised at any side effects (good or bad) that our strange cocktail of drugs might cause, and I'd be even more surprised if too many doctors would spend much time pondering it. Thank goodness for diflucan, though! I know that probably doesn't answer your question, but since the flora of microorganisms in the vagina is pretty complex it would be pretty hard to narrow it down to any particular drug. At any rate, your very best bet would be a gynecologist or female neurologist, MS specialist, or Nurse Practitioner because they understand the discomfort that means to a woman and would ponder your question more seriously. Also, one more thought: Any possibility that you were even "borderline" diabetic and changed your eating habits and/or lost weight since your diagnosis? Because excessively high blood sugars would contribute to yeast infections. Just a thought there.

Kristen, where have you been obtaining your multi-strain probiotics? I'd be glad to not be so dependent on so many meds.
