Hello, I am 24 years old and I believe I have a yeast or candida overgrowth. I think I have had it for two years or longer. Two years ago I started taking birth control and then I realised that it was making my hair fall extremely fast ( a year later I decided to go off that specific pill) I tried a different birth control pill but right away I would get yeast infections. I had staying on that pill for two months and I had two yeast infections. During this time I started having recurring UTIs so I took plenty of antibiotics and what not. Not knowing that it was going to wreck havoc in my body. After going off the pill completely, I decided to use the Kyleena IUD to prevent any unwanted pregnancies but that did not workout so well either so two weeks ago I took it out. Now I am birth control free, but I still feel horrible all over. I eat fairly healthy, I don’t overdo sugars or anything but this past year I was extremely stressed since I was finishing with my last semester of college. Now I am depressed for no reason, I am extremely exhausted all the time,I had ringworm, I have toenail fungus, I have rashes, but no yeast infections or UTIs as of right now. The last one I had came on the day of my graduation ceremony, both yeast infection and UTI at the same time ( may 12th) so I had to take antibiotics and antifungals for the infections.
Can anyone please let me know what I could do to get myself back together. I am feeling extremely hopeless today and would love to see if anyone else had to deal with this issue and how they overcame it.
