Please help recurrent vaginal infections by ecoli!!!

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

Well tea tree oil mixed with black Jamaican castor oil used inside and outside made a difference.The symptoms of burning are off .Try this for a while you will feel a bit better.Other symptoms still remain but those oils they helped me a lot ...As well I put vaginal ovules with probiotics.....I can't tell you that they work much but it's a small relief.I stopped taking antibiotics and any drugs....Am trying the natural way....and am gonna see a omoiopath doc.

Hi Lanloon I just want to say I'm suffering the same thing as you are !! Been going on for 2 in a half years now . Burning inside and discharge but that's pretty much it .. the only thing that bothers me is the inflammation. Been back and forth to the obgyn but they been mistaking it for BV or Yeast . I havent been back yet but I just know that it have to be ecoli because everything else is negative. But recently I've been have weird feeling on my ovaries and pain and I'm scared it could be PID :( I just want to ask you do you have any kids or did you have a baby during your 3 years. With this ? , do you have fertility problems because of the ecoli ? , and is the inflammation still gone ? I'm just curious because I'm 19 and I want kids :(

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!

I had an abscess in ovary and it was growing e. coli. I haven't felt the same since. I am wondering if this is going on with me. Has anyone had any help figuring it out? I take a daily probiotic, vitamins and a vitamin C, bc I read it could help,

Hi . Do you still have both your ovaries or did they had to take that one out ? And do you have PID ?

Reply

I have my ovaries and I was not diagnosed with PID nor do I have any STD's.

You might try colloidal silver. I'm using it for mold and yeast. Doing much better now. You can use it internally and externally.

Thank you so much for the tip am looking to order that....How do u actually use it internally?And how often?

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.

Lanloon, do you have any medication or anything that your currently taking that’s treating the ecoli ?. I know you said you can’t find anything to cure it but have you found anything to TREAT it yet like stop the growth? I need something to at least treat the ecoli because I’m scared it will travel up my kidneys ..

Well am on sporanox which is not for ecoli the last 4 months.I tried diet low in carbs and used coconut oil,as my Gyno told me to do all this.But I still have incidents right after my period with discharges and pain inside and burning...I am a bit better but not cured....when I have the incident I am taking probiotics as ovules and by mouth....I am kind of fighting it but it’s still there...Am thinking to go back to antibiotics 🙁Really I feel this thing is there and doesn’t want to go away...wiping and hygiene doesn’t really helped it....

Hi! I can only tell you what I did. I read a doctor said to someone to try this. One tablespoon bleach to 2 fluid cups. Lay on your back feet up in the air. Put the liquid in the vagina and wait. I can only get to 2 minutes. Before I am ready to sit up. I did not rinse my vagina out. Then I took diluted 1 part to 6 part of rubbing alcohol. I took a paper towel and rubbed all over down there. I let it sit in my underwear for a couple of minutes but I don't think that is a necessary. Be sure to wear a panty liner. Next day I did the same thing. Then I waited for three to four days and did it again. Then one more in a week. Then after 10 more days i did it again. And if I started to feel even a little bit strange I did it again

I felt immediate relief. I was so sore down there with discharge that felt like fire. I needed a break it was the only think I thought about because I was in so much pain. I did the antibiotics and it always came back. I think it colonised in there and that is why it's so hard to get rid of. I actually forgot because there was no more pain. This worked for me. But you might want to contact your doctor first.

No more antibiotics!! Good luck! May you find something that works for you.

Mix with water I don't think I said that part. Also, I didnt take any probiotic. I tried everything under the sun. But they didn't work for me.

Some of these infections/complications can be acquired from a male sexual partner whose hygiene is not good. During intercourse a man could have bits of mess on his private region or touch you inside with unwashed hands then end up contracting ecoli in vagina or some irritation with no actual diagnoses. I would recommend doxycycline 100mg a day for 14 days to clear the the problem before it turns into a fibroid or other female problems. I am not a doctor but speak from experience. Good luck

better to be tested for STDs

D-Mannose is proven in studies to attract ecoli and take it out of the body. Can buy online or at a health food store. Also inserting probiotics capsules to introduce good bacteria back in the vagina after being killed by the antibiotics is always a good idea to stop occurrence of any infection. Douching with antimicrobials (turmeric, colidial siiver ect) BEFORE the probiotics is even better as this flush out all the bacteria and stop the itching immediately. If you dont have any of these, and want immediate relief of itching inserting a garlic clove also works. Crush first to release allicin (active antimicrobial)

Did anybody find something that worked for them due to this ecoli condition? 😭 I’m getting stressed out
