ic uti yeast infections

Hi I'm just wondering if anyone suffers from the same issues as me and may have some recommendations?!
I started having the occasional uti and yeast infections at 16. However, when I was 23 I developed a uti and the pain would not resolve for almost two years. I was told that I had interstitial cystitis and that there was nothing anyone could do.
After many rounds of antibiotics, I now suffer from yeast infections that are very resistant and difficult to treat. I still also suffer from about 2 utis on average per year.
I am also concerned as I am having resistance to some antibiotics.
I currently take acidophilus twice per day, cranberry pills twice per day, oil of oregano twice per day and vitamin c once per day.
Does anyone have any suggestions about preventative treatments for these problems? Or alternative treatments that have been effective?

Thanks for any help

Re: ic uti yeast infections

You need to go to a natural MD who specializes in test that a regular MD want test you for. I will have to go back and look at my medical records and let you know as it is late now, but an overgrowth of yeast has to be treated aggressively. Through a lot of test and years of yeast infections that would just keep coming back a natural path MD found out that I was allergic to candida. This doctor put me on diflican for 6 months to kill the fungus plus a strict yeast free diet. I will write back when I have details on the tests you need to have the doctor give you. Hope this helps. Or better yet I hope you have already found help by now.
