IsTriphasil a safe birth control pill? Does it have a good success rate? I need a pill that has the least chance of health problems and vaginal drynes

IsTriphasil a safe birth control pill? Does it have a good success rate? I need a pill that has the least chance of health problems and vaginal drynes

Switch to a LARC: If you really wish to use a most effective, forgettable Long Acting Reversible Contraceptive (LARC) ask a knowledgeable and caring gynecologist for either an IUD or a subdermal implant. Triphasil, (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) like all combination oral contraceptive pills has risks and benefits but are less effective in preventing pregnancies than the LARC's. Be safe. Use a LARC and condoms too. ...Read more

Why do alternative health practitioners test for candidiasis while traditional mds don't focus on it as a condition effecting the GI system?

Why do alternative health practitioners test for candidiasis while traditional mds don't focus on it as a condition effecting the GI system?

It makes money: There was a book called "the yeast connection" that blamed a plethetra of ills on yeast colonization and infection. This was pseudo-science and was never proven. It was similar to the pseudo-diagnoses of chronic lyme disease and chronic epstein barr virus infection which have never been shown to exist or cause disease but are still believed by many people fooled by charlatan doctors. ...Read more

What can I do about cyst that grow in and around the inside of my thighs and vaginal area? I have suffered with this problem for over 12 years now. I need answers to what causes this condition and how to treat and or prevent it from happening again.

You : You may have hidradenitis suppurativa, which is a condition where one gets cysts and boils in the groin, armpits, and gluteal crease. It is a chronic and recurrent condition that can be quite painful at times. There are many options including antibiotic creams/gels, oral antibiotics, accutane, and surgical treatment. Often, draining the lesions can also give some immediate improvement in symptoms. I would recommend you see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options to help improve your situation. I hope that helps! ...Read more

Is it normal to get tearing at the vaginal opening after using cream to treat a yeast infection? The infection spread to anus. Same problem with tears

Is it normal to get tearing at the vaginal opening after using cream to treat a yeast infection? The infection spread to anus. Same problem with tears

Yes: Yes, this is so painful, right? It's more that the skin is splitting, i'm guessing. Sometimes you can use some desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) or similar cream (for diaper rashes). This can help that skin to heal. This tearing could be due to the infection from yeast, or it could be your skins' reaction to some ingredients in the ant-fungal cream. ...Read more
