Bacterial vaginosis is considered as a sexually transmitted disease, although the exact cause for the bacterial infection of the vagina is unknown. Although it is a common infection among women, there are some potential health risks associated with the disease. It’s important for a woman to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms so that she may get treatment.
Other infections that cause vaginal irritation may be sexually transmitted. These include herpes, gonorrhea, trichomonas, and chlamydia. In some cases, however, vaginal irritation or burning is not caused by an infection. Low estrogen levels during menopause or breast feeding lead to thinning of the vaginal skin, which also causes itching. Frequent intercourse, especially after a period of abstinence, can cause frictional irritation and burning. If you are unsure about the cause of the itching, you should visit your doctor for a thorough exam, especially if your symptoms persist for more than a few days.
I really hope this helps for some of you out there although i do understand that some of you may have no choice but to have an operation. There is no harm in trying the natural way to reduce pain! Joanne: Have you had an MRI done to see exactly what the nature of your herniation is? Maybe it’s pinching a different nerve than your sciatic one. My heart goes out to you. If you have health insurance, I strongly suggest seeing a back specialist, since, in my experience at least, a discectomy completely fixed the problem and ended the pain that had crippled me for months.
In my opinion, this is one of the world’s most powerful, secret remedies for any illness! I strongly believe that if we all drank the amount of water our bodies need, we would see a great reduction in all types of sicknesses. Most doctors say that we should drink at least eight 8-oz. glasses of water daily, but many people need even more than that. I have found that simply drinking enough water greatly reduces my likelihood for getting a yeast infection. Because I am drinking more water, and subsequently urinating more frequently, my body is able to flush out the sugars that feed the yeast.
Irritable bowel syndrome can be another possible cause. Symptoms of this condition include recurring pain and cramping in lower abdomen, bloating, diarrhea or constipation. This is a chronic, but not a life-threatening condition. It is believed to be triggered due to stress or improper eating habits. Its exact cause is unknown. Unfortunately, it is found that irritable bowel syndrome is often misdiagnosed as some other disease of the stomach.
While posting in the Bust Lounge, I’ve been very reluctant to tout Fem-Dophilus as a cure – in part because I didn’t want to seem like a spammer or a shill – but also because there have been many such claims made by other posters about other products, and none have turned out to work. Fem-Dophilus are oral capsules, and you take one to two each day. The capsules are designed so that the good bacteria survives digestion and will colonize in your vagina. If you’re suffering from nasty vaginal thrush then you need to ensure you get rid of it fast and permanently. So here are 3 easy ways to cure vaginal thrush quickly and naturally.
