Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher, with another question I get asked from time to time from my femalepatients. Can I treat my yeast infection while I'm onmy periodé You can treat it while you're on your period,but I think a better time to treat a vaginal yeast infection is before your periodtheproliferative phase. This is when the lining of the endometrium is starting to build up.So from ovulation through to period is a better time to treat. AndChapter 5 of my book,Candida Crusher, you can read my unique twostep treatment for chronic vaginal yeast infection.
In the time building up to the menstrual cycleis a good time to use a kill or antifungal treatment. Andthe postperiod time isa good time to do a restorative treatment or a building up treatment. And I guaranteeyou if you do three or four of these treatments concurrently for three to four months, you'regoing to notice a big improvement. So you can treat while you're on your periodand I know some females do treat regardless of whether they've got their period or not,they'll treat. But I believe a better approach is to treat premenstrual cycle and post andnot during the actual bleeding phase. But it's up to you. You can use douching protocolswhenever you want.
So, I'm going to do a lot more tutorials regardingchronic vaginal treatments because this is an area I've treated many people over an extendedperiod of time. Have a look at my book, Chapter 5, and there is a lot of material there onchronic vaginal yeast infection treatment. So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
(gentle music) Laci Oh hi, everyone! Throughout the last ten years I've had so many vaginal issues that I'm basically a certified hacker now. (ding) Before I get started sharingsome ancient remedies and twenty first century lifesavers
just a little reminder. I'm gonna be talking aboutvaginal infections and stuff and sometimes the symptoms ofthose are actually symptoms of things that are much more serious. So, yay, love your vagina and go to the when you need to. First step, when yeast getsa little outta control. Why yes, I am about to suggest
that you put garlicyour vagina. I know it sounds weird butit seriously works so well. Just pusha whole clove. Don't puncture it or will burn and change that baby every twelve hours. Usually within three to five days my yeast infections are gone. Yeah, it can leave a little bit of a smell
but who doesn't like garlic breadé The vagina's a pocket so it's not gonna get lost but if you're worried, you can tie some floss to it so that you can easily pull it out. For pain relief, I put plain yogurt twith live active cultures into the fingers of a latexglove and then freeze it.
Look for yogurt with theleast amount of sugar that you can find 'cause yeast loves sugar and when you pull it outof the freezer you'll have these delightful,(mumbling) yogurt tampons. Pop oneovernight witha pad to ch the leakage. Next up, UTIs. I know, I know you've heardit before but seriously, hyation is so freaking important.
Try to be inking alittle water all day long. Second, secret weapon is DMannose. You can get this at a supplement store and I take two capsules three times a day for five days whileinking lots of water. Continue taking it a few days even after the symptoms have gone. I've also had good results withprobiotics for bladder pain
How Many Days After My Period is Ovulation
How many days after my period is ovulationéI need to know. Ovulation is half way through the averagecycle. Is that half way based on first bleeding orwhen I stop bleeding or whaté Day one is when the lining starts to shed. AKA, it is really obvious once you start bleeding. You stop bleeding anywhere from day threeto day seven. Obviously you do not ovulate at that point. Ovulation can occur anywhere from day 10 today 24.
So on a day 14, that is two days after myperiod started, is when I ovulate. Right. And ovulation will be seven to tendays after your period ended, on average, depending on how long it lasts. Ovulation is not always on day 14. So track your menstrual cycle, and you'llfigure out which day is half way. Except that you said it could be half wayplus or minus a couple days. On a 30 day cycle, 3 days is a ten percent margin of error, whilethe egg only lasts one. You will see changes to indie when youovulated, such as the cervical mucus changing.
I hardly even notice it except when bleedingor fish smelling. A fish smell means you have a yeast infection.Bleeding usually means you have your period, an STD with lesions causing bleeding or, foronly a few, ied blood ops because your ovary released a little blood when the eggcame out. But a few ops of blood on the panties canalso mean an embryo implanted. You'll ovulate between day 13 and day 15for most women, counting from the day your period started. An embryo implanting willbe three to seven days after that. So a few ops of blood a few days beforemy period is due means I'm pregnant.
It might mean you are pregnant, or you usedtoo much douche or half a dozen other reasons. And anything but pregnancy and feminine hygieneis bad. You'll ovulate a week to a week and a halfafter your period ends, but I'd say the cervical mucus turning clear and watery insteadof thick and gooey or your BBT going up is a better indior than a calendar. What is BBTé BBT stands for basal body temperature, yourbody temperature at rest. It spikes the day after you ovulated.
Thoughtheory the egg is still good atthat time. Ifdoubt, this is why they sell ovulationtests like pregnancy tests by the half dozen.
