  • UTI/Yeast Infection?? In dire need of some help..

    Ok so there's a few things that happened before this weekend that may be relevant. First of all, for pretty much the entire last month I had a very frequent urge to pee, like once every hour or two. That went away so I didn't think much of it. Second, sex has been fairly painful for the last few weeks. Again, didn't think anything of it because I thought it was just from frequent sex. Third, during sex I got this very thick white discharge that I had never seen before. Finally, didn't think anything of it because it only happened during sex and my boyfriend and I just assumed that it was because of enjoyment.

    So fast forward to last Friday. I woke up and had the intense itching and a little burning. I've had a yeast infection before so I pretty much self diagnosed and went to get some Monistat 3. The last time I used Monistat it pretty much worked right away and was gone the next morning. This time it didn't do much for me the first night. I know, I know, you have to wait for about a week before it completely clears up. However, today I woke up, after the second day of using the Monistat, with new symptoms. The burning during urination got much worse, and now I'm having this constant feeling of needing to pee, which I know is a symptom of a UTI.

    From all of your expert opinions () is this a yeast infection? A UTI? Both? Could it be a bad reaction to the Monistat? I'm in total and complete agony right now and I'm trying to decide if I should wait this out for a few days or miss class tomorrow to go to a Dr appointment.

    As always, thanks for the help.

  • You may have Either or even Both. Here are basic Symptoms.

    UTI Signs and Symptoms in Younger Adults

    Both men and women can experience a UTI although the condition is more common in women. A woman's shorter urethra makes it easier for bacteria to reach the bladder. Not everyone who has a UTI will experience symptoms, but most will. Common symptoms of lower UTI include: an urgent need to urinate; frequent but light urination; a burning sensation when urinating; pain or pressure in the lower back or abdomen; bloody, cloudy or strong smelling urine; and, in men, discharge from the penis. Severe or persistent symptoms, combined with fever, chills or nausea, could be a sign of a bladder infection.

    UTI Signs and Symptoms in Older Adults
    Seniors may experience some of the same symptoms of a UTI as younger adults, but many do not. They may also have symptoms that younger adults do not exhibit, such as mental confusion, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, cough and shortness of breath.

    Yeast Infection Signs and Symptoms
    Yeast infections are common and not life-threatening although frequent yeast infections could indicate the presence of a more serious condition. Among the signs of a yeast infection are: itching, redness or swelling in the vaginal area; unusual vaginal discharge; and pain with urination or intercourse. Although yeast infections are not sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), men can get yeast infections from intercourse with an infected partner. Symptoms in men include a rash or itching on the penis.

    When you " self Diagnose " next time get a Yeast infection Over the Counter ( OTC ) test from your local Pharmacy, Walmart, Walgreens , Kmart , Rite Aid . Anywhere that they have a Pharmacy.

    A Product called Vagisil can be bought for about $12. There may be some Generic Brands you can get that are less expensive. Always read the Directions and follow them .
    The Monistat should not " Hurt " you, but before treating yourself for Yeast Infection , Make sure it is one and not Something else.
    There is also AZO Test Strips, you can take a UTI test at home safely and simply, then call your doctor with the results. These are also OTC . That can be bought at Target,Walmart & Walgreen .

    I was in the ER in late May,for Heart related Problems. They told me I had a UTI, they diagnosed it from my urine sample. I had NO Symptoms at all .. It was a Surprise to me for Sure. They prescribed a Medication, it was $30 for 20 pills. I asked for lower cost instead of " Brand " and they said that the Generic could give me a Yeast Infection and then I would have to treat that too . I Coughed up the $30. lol

    I was Back in ER for Heart Related Problems this past Monday. I asked them to take a Urine Sample to check for the UTI. They did, All was well . The First treatment worked .

    Good Luck ..


    • I am sorry, but it sounds like you do have a yeast infection. Itching, vaginal burning and vagina discharge are very common candida's symptoms. In order to get rid of a yeast infection, you must eliminate all root causes of it such as mercury, high sugar diet, hormonal imbalances and use of birth control/antibiotics. Thus, you have to clean you body from mercury, stop eating food containing sugar and take anti fungals. If you want a great treatment plan, I recommend you to read the book Candida30: Permanently Heal Your Candida Infection in 30 Days or Less. This book is a great source of information of how to get rid of candida permanently, how to clean your body from mercury and what anti fungals to take. If you are interested you can find the book at candida30**********. Good luck and I hope your fight against candida will be successful.


      • UTI/Yeast Infection?? In dire need of some help..

        I would suggest go to the dr and get swabs. It might be both but if the cream is not working it might not be what you think it is.

        I use to have reoccurring Utis and found taking cranberry tablets helped relieve the burning when peeing sensation, it also helped restore some balance.

        I have a long history of both and they are not fun. The quicker you treat it the correct way, the faster you recover and not be in pain.



        • when i did it hurt reallly bad!!! i told my mom and she took me to the doctor, i took a urin test. the doctor came back and told me there really wasnt anything but maybe a slight infection she gave me a three day course of antibiotics, the next day i noticed some itchy bumps between my vag and thight. now i have them all over my pubes area, and one on my inner lips, they dont bleed or pus they just itch when it gets moist and burn a little. oh and the opening of my vagina hurts.. the side clostest to my butt hole... some of the bumps are drying up but then a couple new ones show up at first i thought they were just ingrown hairs but now that i have one on my iner lips where i dont shave i dont think they are... peeing doesnt hurt anymore but i still have the bumps!!! i was diagnose with low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion,, and hpv but because it is low grade the gyno didnt do a coloscopy. what can this be do i have genital warts or what?!!!


          • Definitely i think you have yeast infection not a UTI. I am feel really bad when someone have yeast infection or any kind of fungal infection because it is so painful disease that's why i want to become a good fungus doctor and invent powerful natural home remedies for any type of fungal infection.

              • As many of you, I have been on site after site looking for all kinds of information that could have anything to do with my constant bv. This has been going on for a good 3 years now, on and off. I did go to doctors sooooo many times.. did all the antibiotics, creams, gels.. also was treated for UTI and yeast infection. No idea why, or how this is happening to me. I don't have sex, and if I did the only person was with my ex.. so insucure at this point.. theres no possible way I'd feel comfortable!

                For those that are against a more homeopathic cure, think twice. Doctor's cannot help you with this sitution. But I can

                I'm so excited to be able to share with everyone what I have collected from 100's of others stories and cures!

                Okay I'm going to skip all the steps, everyone should know what bv is by now and if not there is a ton of info you can look up.. most likely if you're reading this, you assume you have it. Along with the vaginal issues, i constantly feel gassy, bloated, always sore.. muscles, joints, sometimes have diarrhea, sometimes constipated beyond measure.. never really had that issue before. Also, Chronic Fatigue, Anal Itching, constant dry skin, and acne. All these same symptoms of mine led me to believe, after massive research, that I have candida. Which technically candida is also a PARASITE, Not exactly sure what PARASITE I have, but I know thats what it is!

                Common Symptoms of PARASITES can include:

                Constipation: due to the large size of some worms actually blocking the intestine.

                Diarrhea: certain parasites release a hormone like substance that is in human tissues that can lead to a watery stool.

                Gas and Bloating: Some human parasites live in the small intestine and the inflammation they produce can cause gas and bloating.

                Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Human parasites can irritate, inflame and coat the lining of the intestines causing symptoms of this disease.

                Joint and Muscle Aches and Pains: Parasites can migrate and become enclosed in a sac in joint fluids, worms can do this in muscles.

                Anemia: Some intestinal worms attach themselves to the mucusol lining of the intestines and then feed on the vital nutrients of the host.

                Allergies: Parasites can penetrate the intestinal lining just as candida allowing large undigested food particles into the body creating an immune system response that is often assumed to be an allergy.

                Skin Conditions: Intestinal worms can cause hives, rashes, weeping eczema, and a whole host of other skin conditions.

                Nervousness: Human parasites create wastes and toxic substances that can be severe irritants to the central nervous system. Restlessness or anxiety are often the symptoms associated with these parasitic wastes.

                Sleep Disturbances: Multiple awakenings at night between the hours of 2 and 3 am are possibly caused by the liver attempts to flush toxic wastes out of the body.

                Tooth Grinding and Clenching: This has been observed in patients with known cases of human parasitic infestations.

                Chronic Fatigue: CFS symptoms can include tiredness, flu like complaints, apathy, impaired concentration, depression, and memory problems. This is because the human parasites are simply eating your food and nutrients.

                Immune System Dysfunction: Human parasites depress the immune system much as candida does by the continued stimulation of the immune system, which over time exhausts your defense system.

                Excess Weight, Acne, Cancer and Others: These can be telltale signs of parasitic invasion including, excessive hunger, asthma, bad taste in the mouth and bad breath, diabetes, epilepsy, migraines, and even heart disease and cancer.

                Anal Itching: This is caused by pinworms as they come out at night to lay eggs and then return back thru the anus. Candida yeast can cause this as well.

                Most of these diseases and symptoms can also be associated with candida and yeast infection, and are often times misdiagnosed as candida.

                So What now...?
                Figure out how to get these nasty little creatures out of our system. They are feeding off you, they live off the host.. the longer you allow them to live in your body the sicker you will get.. neglecting parasites in your body can lead to many different health conditions.

                My regimen daily has a few PARASITE detoxing agents along with a few things they would use for candida, and everyday daily supplements.

                I started off slow and progressed to all the stuff I'm taking now, which you wouldn't even have to take them all. It's only for a matter of time anyways, and for a good cause might I add.

                Vitamin C
                Coral Calcium (Vitamin D3, Magnesium, Calcium) 2, 2x a day
                B-12 Complex 3 a day
                Acidophilus (Refrigerated Gr8-Dopholis Probiotic) 2, 2x a day
                Ginko Biloba (for Brain function and circulation, Memory) 1, 2x a day
                Folic Acid 800mg 2xday
                Chlorella Green Super Food/Broken Cell Wall 1000mg Vegan supplement (VERY IMPORTANT! Read more about Chlorella below) Help with Parasite Detox.
                Caprylic Acid (Candida Support - Good Fats for colon)
                Flax Oil
                Biotin (is believed to help to control ingested sugars and carbs)
                Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormword Complex (Herbal Supplement, Liquid, Parasite detox!) Nasty tasting, but well worth it. 1 dropper full 1x a day before bed and i wake up to a healthy bowel movement.. I know this does the trick. Going to start 2x a day today.
                IT WORKS GREENS DETOX (Includes black walnut, wormwood, and alllllll kinds of other detox and healthy supplements, it's all greens and healthy healthy fruits.) 2 scoops in 8oz water or juice 1x a day. I have Orange flavor.
                Diatomaceous Earth Powdered Form (Removes parasites like razor-blades, also good to treat any animals you may have) VERY IMPORTANT FOR PARASITE REMOVAL! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! No taste to mixture. 1 TBSP to 8OZ water I do it once a day right now. Like I said, it's better to start off slow.

                For Hygiene a lot of people suggest a 50/50 HP(hydrogen Peroxide)+ Spring Water Douche... this is good however, you must add a little ACV(apple cider vinegar), not to much or it may burn. Why you do this is because the Spring water is neutral on the PH scale verses Tap and distilled is only sometimes.. the HP kills bad bacteria, fixing the Power of Hydrogen (PH), and the ACV replaces all the good bacteria that the parasites are causing you to loose! I did this wash prob. 4 days in a row... very drastic changes!


                I also Purchased a homemade TEA TREE OIL GLYCERIN SOAP. I have noticed a drastic decrease in my armpit odor. And I only wash my Vaginal area with my ACV+HP+SPRING WATER. Even if I don't do the douche I still wash the outside with it. Absolutely no smells of any kind coming from down there anymore!

                I have not gotten the opportunity to try it myself but, COCONUT OIL, very good anti-inflammatory. For your skin specifically or even to include in your diet! Learn benefits by looking it up, add some keywords like bv, vaginal discharge, yeast infections, parasites, ect. You can learn a lot by adding choice words to your search!

                Also, one evening I did a Suppository of Vitamin C 500MG, woke up the next day.. had a little discharge later not much. Same with Folic acid, I did this the next night, for one night only each though. This took the smell right away and I have been able to keep it away so far 2 weeks later.

                Another recommended product is "Pearls YB" it's a yeast balancing probiotic, high reviews. I have a few family members that take this and have recommended it to me. They use it on a daily basis. I have also read about it being used a suppository.

                I feel better everyday though, flushing these PARASITES out of my body is so refreshing. I cannot wait!

                Most people don't fix the underlying problem to their bv, just continuously cover it up for the rest of their life. NO THANKS! I will remain healthy after all is said and done, but I want to feel comfortable in my own skin again!

                ****100% Cranberry Juice
                ****Aqueous Cream (use as Shower Vaginal Wash)
                ****Mooncup (for periods, tampons and pads are toxic, using tampons could cause you some serious setbacks because it ****allows the bad bacteria to sit in your vagina for long periods of time, not good.
                ****Goldenseal (detox- pill form or could be drank as tea, known to be bitter)
                ****GY-NA-TREN (Found at GNC)
                ****Multi-Vitamin should be in your daily regimen as well
                ****COLON HYDROTHERAPY (I want/need to do this, locally it will cost me $70, this will flush EVERYTHING including ****PARASITES from my body! Candida as well if it is present.
                ****Liquid Chlorophyll (Taste like minty sweet tea, do not get Liquid Chlorophyll ES, this is EXTRA SWEET, NO GOOD! ****Chlorella has a much more potent form of the Chlorophyll which is top ingredient and has more to offer).
                ****FLAX OIL 3 2x a day is recommended, I started out that now down to 2 or 3 a day.

                XYLITOL toothpaste could also be your downfall-known to cause disruptive issues in candida cleanses.

                I feel like I am forgetting something! But if anyone has any questions or information just ask.. just in case I forget about checking this site, I will be posting to many others as well!

                Thank You for reading, and I wish you all Happy Healing! The better mode you're in, and the lower your stress levels are, the better the chance you have and being healthy again. Try to stay healthy and keep a regimen so it doesn't come back.. you have to make sure it's completely gone! Most of these supplements are very good for everyday health!
