  • unfortunately for me, i am 22 and have had more then every one on hear lol. its definitely not fun, it suck!! for abt starting in april i had one every 2 to 2 1/2 wks. i would take the mediation and it would go away but come back a few days or a wk later. that pattern lasted 4 mths. i am in a steady relationship with my fiancee and kept goin in to see my gyno abt out it. in the end it was just hormonal changes that was causing it. it was the worst time of my life having to deal with that. it was very uncomfortable, itchy, eventually my vagina was so sore from having them that it became painful all the time and burned. my vagina lips were cracked and bled a little. now i take probiotics and drink or eat cultered stuff like kefir or yogurt

  • I did. I had frequent UTI's due to a condition called intercystal cystitis. I was given far to many antibiotics and not for a long enough time to knock it out (hence the bacteria adapted and I needed more). So, this created an imbalance of ph and I developed a yeast infection. Once.
