Hi-I am only able to be on for a few minutes, and can't look for this thread, but I recall reading a post from a woman who was being bothered by frequent yeast infections. I have been having problems for the past 7-8 months-almost every month with vaginal yeast/bacterial infections. I have been taking diflucan, and a cream for the bacterial infections. This month I have both showing on the test. Sometimes just yeast, or just bacteria. Any ideas on this?? I read that hormonal fluctuations can cause this kind of thing. I am 45. My dr. ordered blood work today to check my "levels" I am IBS-C, which I have fairly well under control, but I am having frequent soft stooling at the time of the infections. It starts out with itching, and an irritated kind of feeling,then gets progressively worse. At first it was midway between my periods, now it seems to be happening before & after periods. It is getting so frustrating!The "wet prep" (as the dr. calls it) will show a "few" yeast cells. Feels like an army of them to me! Thanks for any advice you can give.
