I've been noticing that I start feeling yeasty (either a full on infection, or redness/irritation) the week following my period. Are there any suggestions of things I can do to possibly prevent this? I'm on HBC, I know that's a factor, but pH feels very difficult to regulate.
I know that this is fairly common, but is there a NAME for this? I seem to recall reading here about a particular syndrome or disease that was suggested to someone who regularly got yeast infections after their period. Now I feel like I'm crazy because I can't find it anywhere (on VP or the world wide interwebs). Or maybe these people get infections right BEFORE their period? Or at another regular time in their cycle....?
Any thoughts? Thanks, all!
