Calendula Douche Or Suppositories For Cervical Dysplasia?

I have had serious side effects of burning and cramping from Vitamin A preparations (Beta-PLEX, Vag Pack and #1 suppositories) and now my naturopath is recommending calendula douche or suppositories. Has anyone had any experience with these?

Can you get it without tea tree oil (I know that will burn my tissues as well)?

After suffering through so much with side effects and the time it takes to feel somewhat normal again, I am so afraid to try anything else but she says this is the only way I can get the cells back to normal and hopefully avoid cervical cancer.

I am so scared!

Re: Calendula Douche Or Suppositories For Cervical Dysplasia?

It sounds to me like you have a sensitive vagina. Keep putting stuff in it, it could wind up permanently irritated, like mine.

I will never be able to have sex without numbing myself with lidocaine first, and I don't want other women to find themselves in the same situation.

I think that building up your immune system in general is a better bet. Under ideal circumstances, the immune system eats cancers before they grow. Eat veggies, exercise moderately, don't smoke, meditate, cultivate friendships, maybe take a multi-vitamin, but don't go shoving random stuff into your vagina.

Re: Calendula Douche Or Suppositories For Cervical Dysplasia?

Hi, Janewhite . . . thank you. I did ask her point blank if doing (she knows I eat healthy, meditate, have healthy friendships, etc.) those things would be enough and she said it had to be direct treatment to the cervix and that internal supplements or diet would not do the trick.

If I am understanding what I researched correctly, I have atrophic vaginitis caused by 15 years of Depo-Provera shots and recently going post-menopausal at age 51. This is why everything is so sensitive. Calendula is supposed to help clear that problem up. I found that you can get it in bulk with no other ingredients and brew it into a tea.

My last shot runs out of effectiveness in November. Is there any chance that once the methytrexate and synthetic progesterone are out of my system that my cervix might return to normal?

I have anxiety and keep thinking that whatever is going on might turn into cancer over night.
