I get a yeast infection nearly every month the day before I start my period or the day my period ends.
It is getting very trying. Even with tighter and tighter control I am spending SO MUCH money on this, it is getting stupid. For the longest time I had to go to the doctor and get tested with a vaginal swab every time. Each month was the exact same thing. Walk in- "I have a yeast infection." They respond "Get undressed, we'll swab you." strip, swab, dress "Looks like you have a yeast infection." I reply "Yes, I KNOW, please make the burning stop!"
So I get a prescription for 1 pill.... To which I would say (in my head). "I am here EVERY *** MONTH! WHY do you keep doing this to me??? Do you like looking at me naked? Or just ripping off my insurance?" The nurses respond that "You should eat more yogurt." to which I say. "I am VERY allergic to milk."
**sigh** Does anyone have any ideas not involving dairy on how to stop this from happening next month? I am so tiered of this infection every month that I could just loose it next time.
