Menstruation And Yeast Infection
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Same as w/o: your period - except it may be better to use a pad because each time a tampon is removed it can also remove some of the anti-fungal cream that is in the vagina. Take care. ...Read more

Yes: Many women find that they get cyclical infections, and usually things are better right after a period, like it cleans you out. Then as the month goes by, the symptoms creep up again. Once you are accurately diagnosed and treated for yeast, you might try using over the counter vaginal supplement like "luvena" once or twice per week to help maintain a healthy vaginal balance between periods. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After every menstrual period I get a yeast infection , why is that ? It's like a cottage cheese discharge with a light to strong smell sometimes
PH change: Your vaginal pH changes with the period rolling through the vagina possibly causing the repeat "yeast" infections. Have your MD check first post period with a sample for a wet smear and if yeast is confirmed consider a longer term oral yeast Rx and avoid douching and harsh soaps in that region. ...Read more

Yes: It's a bummer, but yes, this can definitely be normal. The brownish component is just old blood from the uterus. For whatever reason the uterus didn't evacuate all the blood at the end of the cycle. Or there was some old blood remaining in the vagina. Not to worry, no sign of anything ominous ...Read more
An ob-gyn told me once " a yeast infection will clear itself up during a menstruation" true or false? Please explain in detail. Thanks in advance :)
Can yeast infection stop menstruation ? I haven't menstruated in 5 months. I ovulate constantly (gas, bloating, cramps, cervical mucus- stretchy).
Amenorrhea: If you began to menstruate and then stopped this is known as secondary amenorrhea and you should definitely be seen and thoroughly evaluated by a gynecologist. Something sounds seriously wrong and cannot be successfully diagnosed long-distance over the internet. This is not due to yeast infection, and the other symptoms you describe may or may not be part of this. See a doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
Non-azole drugs: There are no "natural" treatments likely to help much. There are non-azole treatments, such as nystatin, caspofungin, and flucytosine. Nystatin is available OTC, I think not the others; your pharmacist can help. Or maybe your allergy isn't to miconazole per se, but other ingredients in the cream; you could try other azoles (clotrimazole, terconazole, etc), or oral fluconazole (Diflucan). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Taking a probiotic supplement or having yogurt with active cultures in your diet during your course of antibiotic may further reduce this risk slightly. During pregnancy, oral medications for yeast infection are not safe, but vaginal creams are ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
