Can I Treat My Yeast Infection During My Period
Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher, with another question I get asked from time to time from my femalepatients. Can I treat my yeast infection while I'm onmy period? You can treat it while you're on your period,but I think a better time to treat a vaginal yeast infection is before your period in theproliferative phase. This is when the lining of the endometrium is starting to build up.So from ovulation through to period is a better time to treat. And in Chapter 5 of my book,Candida Crusher, you can read my unique twostep treatment for chronic vaginal yeast infection.
In the time building up to the menstrual cycleis a good time to use a kill or antifungal treatment. And in the postperiod time isa good time to do a restorative treatment or a building up treatment. And I guaranteeyou if you do three or four of these treatments concurrently for three to four months, you'regoing to notice a big improvement. So you can treat while you're on your periodand I know some females do treat regardless of whether they've got their period or not,they'll treat. But I believe a better approach is to treat premenstrual cycle and post andnot during the actual bleeding phase. But it's up to you. You can use douching protocolswhenever you want.
So, I'm going to do a lot more tutorials regardingchronic vaginal treatments because this is an area I've treated many people over an extendedperiod of time. Have a look at my book, Chapter 5, and there is a lot of material there onchronic vaginal yeast infection treatment. So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
How to Check Your Cervix for Signs of Pregnancy
I want to know how to check your cervix forsigns of pregnancy. That's not exactly something easy to check. I've heard you could check, without relyingon a or nurse and sitting in stirrups. It is normally low and hard. Well lower, sincetoo low is a prolapse, which is bad. I heard that during ovulation, it is usuallylower than normal. And that it feels like a nose tip. If you got pregnant, it will rise back uptoward its normal level. It does that if I did not get pregnant too,before my period starts.
It will become softer, which is called ripening. As long as it does not smell. Pregnant women are prone to more yeast infections. I do not know if I'm pregnant yet. The cervix will be soft when it rises backup, but not as hard and continually softening. What makes it soft? After the embryo implants, it bloats withblood. However, it sometimes rises up high enough that women cannot feel that physicalchange with their long middle finger.
And I do not want to have sex again to gethis opinion of the feeling. I know what you can feel for yourself. I'm afraid to ask. The cervical mucus is watery and nearly clearwhen you ovulate. That's to let the sperm through. The cervical mucus is more white and thickerwhen you're not pregnant. I'd only know that I'm not pregnant bythe cervical mucus if I tracked that before. If you got pregnant, you'd see more cervicaldischarge. However, whether it is watery and
clear or heavy and light depends on your bodytype. Will it be like a period? No, but if you have your period, you knowyou are not pregnant. I've heard pregnancy can cause light spotting. If you see red drops in the cervical mucus,you probably implanted. If the mucus has an orange tint from blood drops mixing with themucus, that may be a sign of pregnancy. Or an STD. How else can I tell? Stop trying to divine bodily fluids and gobuy an early pregnancy test.
I'll be testing for a while before I'mcertain of the answer. Wait a couple of months, and you may be askingme about the cervix changes that indicate that you're going into labor.
