yeast infection from being on meds too long?

I tend to get yeast infections when I'm on medicines for too long. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm getting a yeast infection from being on Armour too long - I don't know, but I feel like one might be starting.

Anyone had this happen, or am I just lucky today?

I haven't had that problem! I hope I dont either!

I know antibiotics can cause them. Then of course the practice of wiping from front to back, etc can all help minimize them. Cotton lined panties, etc.

Re: yeast infection from being on meds too long?

When my thyroid is low, I tend to get urinary tract infections more often. I am also very sensitive to ibuprofen because it causes bladder irritation for me. Even when I drink lots of water.

I really would not say it is from the Armour. It could be that your immune system is low because of being SOOOOO hypo.

That is my 2cents on the subject!!!

I forgot to add that if you can tolerate eating yogurt, just one container a day will keep that yeast under control. I tried it and it worked, no kiddin.

Me too. I got the worst and frequent yeast infections when I was very hypo. It is much, much better now as my meds are helping the hypo problem.

I never had one in my life until I got thyroid nodules (at age 37) - and had terrible hypo symptoms - haven't had one since I've been on synthroid....Hope you feel better!
Take care,
