I've had yeast infections and uti hear and there the past 5 or 6 years. For the past 6 months or so I've gotten both ever single month. After being on medicine the symptoms come and go, then I'm hit with another infection. I have an 8 year old daughter and this started after I had her, I've never had these kinds of problems before having her.
I recently did a lot of research on feminine hygiene, infections, diets, etc. I changed my diet completely for the past two weeks, cut out sugar almost completely, coffee is black (no sugar or creamer) and I drink much less of it. I also started using witch hazel (with no alcohol, this is very important) for cleaning my privates once a day. No scented laundry soaps or bath soaps, I only use dial soap and use wash cloths only now (not shower puffs, they are breeding grounds for bacteria). I take probiotics daily and AZO YEAST, this helps tremendously. So far my symptoms have been going away. I'm worried this is goingoing to be a continuous thing. It has put pressure on my relationship, sex is painful and irritating.
