I got my Mirena IUD removed about two weeks ago because I felt that it was causing the yeast infections I had been getting. Since the beginning of december (!!), I've had what I thought was a yeast infection. It's very mild: vague itchyness and irritation, no change in discharge, no smell. I got tested mid-december and I tested negative for a yeast infection and for BV, but I assumed it was a yeast infection and the test was wrong. (My boyfriend, however, says that with my previous yeast infections there was a noticable yeast smell, but there isn't this time, so he thinks something else is going on.)
Since I got my IUD removed, I've had over a week of spotting, as though my body's attempted to have some sort of period but there's just not enough uterine lining to have a real one. I was hoping that would fix this yeast infection, but it hasn't.
(Many people here suggest that itchyness is a reaction to a change in laundry soap, but I've gone through 3 different soaps since this yeast infection started so I don't think it's that.)
edit: Oh, I should say that I did attempt to treat this yeast infection, first with acidophilus capsules (which had worked in the past), and then with boric acid. It maybe made it a bit better, but didn't make a huge difference.
