Im new to this page and I am hoping that I will find some answers.
For several years now I have had cyclic itching, rawness and discomfort. I have found no help in finding a doctor that has come up with any diagnosis other than treating with massive amounts of diflucan and hydrocortisone. Neither has been of much relief.
I am at a loss on what to do or where to go for help. I am breastfeeding a 27 month old and I am not sure as to whether that is worsening the issue.
Much of the irritation is on the vulvar vestibule. The irritation comes on rather quickly, overnight really. It seems to be worsened by sex although I am using non-latex condoms and hypo-allergenic lubricants.
This occurrence monthly is getting tiring and aggravating and really putting a damper on my sex life. I really think it may be cyclic vulvovaginitis.
Could anyone offer ANYTHING that may help or point me in a direction that will provide some relief and possibly stop re-occurrence?
I was also wondering if oral capsules of probiotics could be inserted vaginally and if that would provide some relief.
