Re: I have a question!

I was getting that too and I was worried I had an infection or something, but it would go away after a few days and the doctor didn't see anything wrong. Turns out it was my TAMPONS bothering me! I'm on the pill and my period is pretty light most of the time so the regular absorbency tampons were too much for me and drying me out. Now I use light flow kind for the first two days and have to only wear a pantiliner after that or it bothers me again. Not sure if you use tampons.. but just something that sounds similar to what was going on with me! It would even bother me throughout the month sometimes.

Re: I have a question!

I had a yeast infection that reoccured two days before my period. I had a very uncomfortable rashlike/itchiness two days before, gone during the period, and after it feeling dry.

The Gyn (and the internet, lol) explained that right before the period, hormone levels fall drastically, progesterone increases making estrogen running down on you (which increases the level of sugar on your vagina). The sugar increase from your hormones coupled with extra sugar that you normally eat before your menses,(I do often) makes the yeast thriving, after the period, the dryness is normal attributed to the lack of hormones as well..


if you want to make sure just check with your gyn..it can be a vaginal infection either yeast or BV that is tricked by the change of hormones or any allery to the tampons..I switched to natural tampons to rule that out. I am also eating more yogurt and cutting backon sugar for those days.

Re: I have a question!

I don't get periods any longer, but what I used to do, and I swear it worked every single time, was to take some plain yogurt and insert a small amount into my vagina at night. It would take only one time and BOOM...all gone. Maybe I was heading off the start of a yeast infection or the yogurt was just soothing, but whatever it was, it was a blessing!

Re: I have a question!

i started the pill maybe a year or two ago...i stop it about 4 months ago and i will probably start it in about 2 months.. when i started it i started realizing i would get dry... but also i dont usually use tampons.. only really in the summer..so i dont know.. but it usually only seems to happen around my period..

Re: I have a question!

I would also try out eating more yogurt.. I've been eating Dannon Activia because I was getting a lot of stomach aches, and I know it's good for keeping things in balance too. I didn't know you could actually put plain yogurt inside of you.. but good idea since it works!

Re: I have a question!

You can insert yogurt and it does work. I pushed some plain yogurt in me while laying down I didn't know about the tampon trick. The itching and burning went away really fast, I think it was a combo of the yogurt being cold and doing it's job.

Re: I have a question!

Hi,
I've had this happen during/after my period also. I use pads most of the time, and I think the combination of the material type, and the pad rubbing caused it. I try different brand pad, and sometimes it's not as bad. I always get unscented, and I think the very thin pads, are more irritating - as they seem to really 'pull' the moisture away more. When I use a regualr maxi pad, I hardly have the problem.

Mary

Re: I have a question!

BV has a fishy odor- especially after sex. yeast infection-usually no odor. Most people get a clumpy discharge with a Yeast Infection- I never do- It may be because I can tell when I'm getting one and I start treatment right away. Also- yeast infections are very common at the start or finish of a period.
