I have suffered an ongoing yeast infection for 2+ yrs, while fainting about 4 times, along with diarrhea, feeling tired, and bleeding in b/w periods.

Another idea is the use of boric acid or gentian violet. Sometimes an elimination diet is helpful. A great book is the v book. Definitely see a specialist in gynecology who can help you with this. ...Read more
