My at-home AZO strips no longer show leukocytes in my urine, but I still need to have a lab culture my urine to see if anything is going on.
This time it didn't go away and so I saw my ob/gyn.She took a culture and found strep B, which has nothing to do with Strep A that creates strep throat.She said she could give me antibiotics to make it go away but then I would get a yeast infeciton from the antibiotics and then we'd have to use another cream etc. Now it's been three and ahalf weeks and it's better but not all healed.Does anyone have any ideas about treating this or preventing this?I have resorted to self medicating by drinking a cup of hot water with 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar twice a day (morning and night) also doing hydrogen peroxide rinse with warm water (3 parts water 1 part hp) it stings because I am so raw from scratching like crazy for a week, but it seems to lessen the intense itching I feel.
I am desperate that I am trying anything and everything and hope to update this post with effective or ineffective methods of calming this terrible infection. I feel for all you women, this infection is awful and so intense it interferes with daily life activities.
Well, it's been a few months, and I must say I really believe that I am much healthier now than I was before.
My period is lighter, my fatigue is gone, and my back twinges have left.
Ladies, I believe that you just have to figure out how to be the healthiest person YOU can be and that you can kick this thing's butt.
The changes I had to make were not easy, and a lot of the stuff that I incorporate into my diet now took some getting used to (ingesting large amounts of garlic, coconut oil, kefir), but I will continue to do it to be healthy and not have to keep relying on poisonous ineffective antibiotics.
