I've had that before, but it was just a wierd period, the gyno told me to do a pregnancy test. It was wierd because of a new brand of pills.

If it's a yeast infection, it's a fungal overgrowth and they're not going to give you antibiotics because antibiotics cause yeast infections because the good bacteria that normally keeps the fungal stuff under control gets killed.

Either use monistat or get an rx for diflucan if it's a yeast infection. The gyno will be able to tell you within like, 3 seconds of seeing it if it is yeast or not.

Yogurt (or anything with live cultures in it) helps a lot because it replaces good bacteria in your system. If you're on a no dairy thing, Silk has this new Silk live stuff that is soy yogurt. Acidophilus is one of the cultures that is good for you, and you can get that as a pill I think, but most yogurt has 6-8 live cultures, including the acidophilus.

Oh, and don't have sex! It'll make it worse and your FI can get it too. He probably won't have symptoms, but he'll keep passing it back to you!

Well thanks for the good information! I knew that you shouldn't have sex because it could make your infection worse, but I didn't know I could pass it onto him with no symptoms only to get it back again!

So more questions I have are:

1. Can a yeast infection give you pink discharge. Its the same texture as a regular yeast infection, it's just pink.

2. Can a yeast infection give you back pain?

2. About threelac: are there any side effects of it? And is it like a normal yeast medication (when it comes to a vaginal yeast infection). Like Monistat 3 will make you have even more discharge for the next one to two days and then it is gone.

3. Are there foods to stay away from besides the obvious: dairy, gluten, sugar, alcohol and caffeine?

Any help I would love! Thanks!

Dani,

Check out this link.

http://www.biohealth...s/airwaves.html

If you have time listen to the show about gluten intolerance and then listen to the show about candida. Very, very, informative. I go to a Biohealth clinic and my doctor is awesome. Well...so far they've been like a huge gift after everything I've gone through with past doctors....but since this isnt the "rant about doctors thread" I wont get into that. :P

My doctor is just like the doctor speaking in these shows. Very knowledgeable and alot of whats being discussed in these programs has alot to do with questions in this thread. Also in my case I'm already diagnosed with gluten intolerance since last year. Now after finding good doctors and getting proper testing I'm diagnosed with Clostridium Difficile and candida. These programs describe how all this takes place just because of a gluten intolerance. You *may* have underlying cause for your symptoms (aside from gluten intolerance)....I would be least worried about candida although you may have that as well. Definately dont eat lots of sugar as that will aggravate the situation.

I would think the blood tests & biopsies that my son had yesterday will show any underlying problems at least i hope so.

Sorry Skurtz,

I was replying to Danikali's post but you're right. If you're son has Celiac as an underlying cause for his candida hopefully that will show up in the tests. :)

Carbs...like potatoes, white rice. Those turn to sugar pretty quickly.

Anyways I did the whole Candida thing for 4 months last year before I found out I had gluten intolerance. I followed the candida diet perfectly and I felt better but after 4 months I started to figure theres more to it....I mean you cant stay on that type of diet forever. I was living on meat, fish and a few vegetables. Since then I'm a FIRM believer that if you've got candida....theres a reason behind it.

I was diagnosed with candidia and celiac on the same day. I followed the candidia diet for 2 years and I am finally free of it. Dr. William Crook has a book "The Yeast Connection" that tells you what to eat and not to eat. Basically - don't eat: yeast, sugar, cheese, baking powder, vinegar, fruit juice and put your leftovers in the freezer not the refrigerator.

I read the yeast connection & a few others like sugar buster I dont mean to sound like a broken record I just know that we son & I did way better in just 2 weeks on the gluten free & its more or less sugar free becuaese you have eliminated all of sugar the only thing he had was a koolaid here or there iin is lunch
it some candy here & there His rash never reappeared the one that I know is caused by yeast ( in Privates)
I say I would have to agree with Rachel-24 when looking bk over everything there must be an underlying problem that Im sure we will find out on mon when his test results are bk in. I mean hes either celiac or gluten free intolher either way hes bk on diet.

Good information!

Well, I am sure my underlying problem is Celiac disease, (possibly casein intolerance?) and I am sure that I have a problem with Candida. I know that when I have sugar (like candy) or any kind of processed foods, I get really bad stomach problems. Then I go back to eating plain whole foods, and I get better. So, I am positive that I've got the leaky gut, etc. So my question is, should I really not have potatos and rice anymore either? And any kind of fruit? I read online about this and some doctors recommended no fruit for the first 3 months and some doctors said it was okay. I had an apple this morning and some celery and carrots about 2 hours later. Neither hurt my stomach at all. I had rice cakes last night, and I didn't think about it, but I blew up like crazy after that and had foul gas again. I also had a potato for lunch yesterday and had problems again. Soooo, I'm thinking (and hoping) that fruit is okay, right? I haven't noticed any problems with it so far........

And how long is the typical time period that I must stay on this diet? A year? Does that mean I shouldn't have potatos or rice either for a whole year?

Also, whatelse could be my underlying problem besides the gluten intolerance thing?

I'm getting hungry thinking about all of the foods that I can't eat right now.........

Be careful with taking acidophillus with some antibiotics. I am taking Macrobid and magnesium inhibits the abosorption of it. Acidophillus supplements sometimes has magnesium as an ingredient. My doctor said that macrobid doesn't cause yeast infections. Does anybody know if that is true? I am on a least a month of Macrobid and nervous about it.

The sooner you get rid of all the underlying causes which are allowing Candida to overgrow the sooner your gut will heal and intolernaces will go away. The doctor on the radio show explains all this stuff really well....also about the diet and such. I've researched Candida, read several books but I dont buy into everything I read online. I believe this doctor has it right when it comes to Candida overgrowth. You may only have Celiac Disease but there can also be other factors that go along with that. If you were to stay on a strict candida diet for a year it would be extemely unhealthy... Candida diets are VERY strict. They will work but as soon as you go off the diet symptoms will return if the underlying reason for Candida is still there. Candida should not be extremely dificult to control...if it is there is likely something else going on. I did the strictest form of the diet for 4 months...no fruit. I went off the diet 6 months ago....only making sure to be gluten-free...and I now have candida overgrowth again. It could NOT be from gluten at this point and I've been gluten-free long enough to have started healing. Further testing showed the C-Diff infection. If I never got diagnosed w/ that infection I'd have candida and food intolerances indefinately...no matter what I did.

Be careful with taking acidophillus with some antibiotics. I am taking Macrobid and magnesium inhibits the abosorption of it. Acidophillus supplements sometimes has magnesium as an ingredient. My doctor said that macrobid doesn't cause yeast infections. Does anybody know if that is true? I am on a least a month of Macrobid and nervous about it.


Whats Macrobid? Antibiotics cause yeast infections...I'm not sure if Macrobid is an antibiotic or not?

Rachel, thank you by the way for always being so helpful and informative!

Anyway, so what kind of doctors do the kind of tests that could find infections like the one that you have? It sounds like you have a special kind of doctor who doesn't just go to med. school and stick with the information in the old books he's read 20 years ago! where do I find a doctor like that? As you know, I have the appointment with the dietician next Tuesday, but she wouldn't be able to do tests on me, would she? She's just for food, right? How come I'm fine when I eat natural foods that have not been processed AT ALL, but as soon as I add any candy, or processed foods, or alcohol, I'm back to my old stomach problems? Could a casein intolerance be an underlying problem? I'm waiting for my results on that now, and I've never been completely dairy free.......so maybe?

Also, did this doctor say where you got this infection from? How does this happen?

I feel like I'm a computer with a really bad virus that constantly creates new problems.......ahy yai yai!
