Abby Posted November 27, 2013 Share Posted November 27, 2013 This is my first post, first time doing the whole30, I just finished Nov. 12. This is an embarrassing questions for me, but I know you all can steer me in the right direction. My normal diet consisted of a lot of sugar and a lot of soda. It took a whole30 to show me how bad I had been to my body for many years. I have yet to start the reintroduction phase yet. My question is about yeast infections...I get them chronically. First, they started happening about every six months in high school, then every three months, then every two, now I get them monthly, and during the course of my whole30, I have had it twice in one month. Do you think this is due to a die off of candida? I can't seem to find a pattern to them, and I know many, many things can cause them. I am healthy, 25 and do not have children. I have seen two different gynecologists about it. They have confirmed it is yeast. I switched from one dr because he told me basically it just happens to some women and you have to deal with it. My new dr has told me to keep eating clean and see if that makes a difference, prescribed me some antibiotics for a bacterial infection she found during an exam during my whole30 (cleared up), but gave me a heavy prescription for a couple rounds of Diflucan if it still continues to come back. I traditionally treat them with OTC meds. I want to do everything I can to avoid that Diflucan, I don't want all of my hard work ruined by multiple rounds of antibiotics. Since ending the whole30, I have basically stuck to the template, and I have started supplementing with Natural Calm, D3 and SFH fish oil. I have ordered Klaire Labs Ther-Biotic probiotic for women, which is supposed to specifically target the areas I am having problems with. That probiotic seems like a last ditch effort to get this stuff to go away, and I'm praying it will help. I have also tried eating Bubbie's sauerkraut a couple times a week. Do you all have any suggestions as to why this keeps happening or what I can do to prevent it? It's getting to be a miserable, expensive habit. I'm tired of it, and my husband is too! I do not want to just accept this is the way I am and "deal with it." Thanks in advance! Link to comment
