Hello every one!I have been suffering with vaginal infection almost 3 years now...it comes every month as burning inside and outside,pain inside the vagina as well.Most of the times it lasts for 2 weeks and so...nothing can fight it...I took Cypro antibiotic couple of times but it comes back after.I am desperate...I ve tried everything I went to million of Gyno which most of them they couldn't help ....some of the swaps were coming back negative ,and this confused most of the doctors in result to diagnose me with pelvic pain syndrome.Now it seems clear as my last swap came out positive with ecoli.All my urine test are clear as well.thanks for any help!

Hi Lanloon,

Why not try Tumeric with manuka honey in water or milk.Half a teaspoon of tumeric with a tea spoon of manuka honey.Tumeric is an antiviral/antibiotic.I am not a doctor but if you wish to have a go.Good luck

Putting just a few drops of Tea Tree oil (bought from any chemist) may help. This is sometimes used by pregnant women for thrush who cannot take usual meds because of side effects that could affect the baby. Only use a FEW drops tho, it stings! Hope that helps & hope you feel much better real soon.

Some of the topical remedies mentioned above may help if you have an infection as they have antimicrobial properties, but some of the time you say that there is no detectable infection so that may not be the complete answer.

Persevere with your doctors as only they have your full clinical history - ensure they check for fungal infection (eg Candida) as well as bacterial if you have another infection. If any of the above remedies work tell your doctor, it may help the diagnosis. Some may also make the problem worse - which is also important information to give your doctor.

As this is a fungal infection support group I should mention that Candida infections can be very difficult to treat and do keep coming back. For that reason some hospitals have a specialist 'difficult Candida infection' service available - there is one at UHSM, Manchester uhsm.nhs.uk/services/infect...

Good luck!

Not trying to be too personal but you could be infecting yourself with E-coli every time you wipe if you are wiping back to front.

Yes I was told this as well. I think I may have not always wiped correctly as well.

Im 44 and ive been convinced ive been peri-menopausal for the last 6 years. I was put on hrt for 3 months which didn’t seem to help a great deal, although i would say lessened it slightly. Im taking evening primrose oil now to see if it helps. I too take a high dose probiotic but its never seemed to make much of a difference so i believe my hormones may be the culprit or some sort of bacteria they arent picking up!

Probably.i know its frustrating as heck too.not having anything that works

Have any of you been tested for diabetes? Also changing your diet may help as my symptoms started the same time my food allergy symptoms started I didn't know until I was tested and found that I am allergic to a number of foods mainly dairy and night shade foods

Among other things. I had to change lots of things because I became allergic to almost everything I wash my clothes in baking soda and use peroxide as a Whitner or distilled vinegar. I brush my teeth with baking soda as everything else irritates me I use Castile soap to clean and take a shower I can eat veggies if they are cooked not raw I don't have a issue with meats unless they are fried. Most fruits I am allergic to and eggs etc. I was told that this was all caused by stress and once I remove the stress completely or rather learn how to deal with it more appropriately then the symptoms should get better. Hope this helps someone. I'm still suffering but things had gotten a lil better by making changes. Walking is a great stress reliever I just need to find more time to incorporate it in my very busy life.

I forgot to mention to stay away from sugared much as possible avoid sugary drinks and sweets , add more protein to your diet, exercise and drink lots of water. Eggs salmon green tea are good choices and please please please try and get enough sleep sleep helps heal the body and that the one things I'm trying to get more of.
