I see a lot of people with a slightly elevated CEA who are perfectly healthy! ...Read more

Ask your doc about oral fluconazole (Diflucan®)150 mg once a week, usually effective in preventing recurrent yeast. If the other problem is bacterial vaginosis, that also can often be prevented with MetroGel or boric acid. ...Read more
