  • How can Nystatin be sugar? Nystatin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The doc did not find any yeast this time, but lately, I've only been feeling it in the morning. I'm going to keep trying the garlic and such and see how it goes. I have hope, for the first time in weeks!

      He could have a minor, (so minor he doesn't notice it or thinks it's a little sore throat or allergy issue), case of thrush and just be keeping it warm for you waiting until you are all healthy and he is allowed to re-visit there, and then you get it again. This is often what is happening in cases of "It keeps coming back, damnit".

        Mycostatin oral suspension probably found in the states too has sucrose as it's main ingredient at least here in Italy. I know, I had something like one million units bottle a week for most than a year (and that made loosing weight and liquids pure hell, not to talk about constant tiredness and hunger during and after treatment suspension. You might think it's as having a cheat, well it is not: I had an ice cream I shouldn't have had here and there but I never felt as bad as with nystatin "syrup". Maybe they concocted the formula so babies would actually swallow it. It sucks bad anyway.
        As I said, if nobody is pushing you into it or has the power to forcefeed you the thing and you can make it work with garlic and the sort just give it a try because nystatin as a drug is nasty on its own but mixed with sugar is a pure nightmare.

        • I've had success in the past using a probiotic capsule "up there" but since my hubby and I did a yeast cleanse using a product called Bioxy Cleanse I haven't had any issues except during that TOM. Here is the info for Bioxy Cleanse: Bioquest BIOXY CLEANSE - 180 CAPS - DETOX SUPPLEMENTS - FOOD SUPPLEMENTS - FOOD SUPPLEMENTS - National Nutrition. It completely flushes out the system and it is important for both partners to do it at the same time to prevent it from coming back again. At that TOM I think it is the pad that causes irritation and itchiness and it usually goes away after an epsom salt bath.

          I think it is important to talk about these things in this thread to prove to the male Groks that don't think we need our own thread why we do in fact need our own thread.

            Aw, c'mon! Guys LOVE to talk about yeast infections and clotty peri-menopause periods! Right?

                I know my husband doesn't want to talk about the clotty peri-menopause periods, he's concerned but certainly doesn't want to know the details.

                  • Hahahah love you ladies. Thanks for all the thoughts and TMI

                    Bioxy Cleanse looks like it has a lot of the components of other yeast-control protocols that I've looked at (Pau d'arco, Vitamin C, Black Walnut Green Leaf, Cloves, Garlic, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Golden Seal Root, as examples). It certainly doesn't look harmful, though I can't find the amounts of each ingredient anywhere online. I think I will continue to mix and match (next month, if it seems necessary after my current garlic suppository attempts) the single ingredients for now. I tried the Acidophilus as a suppository, should probably continue with that (doing garlic at night, so Acidophilus during the day?), but man, it is messy. Kind of makes me want to make an ACV douche mixture, just to get the residue out =\

                    • Oh god the clotty periods were so awful. I had to get down on my hands and knees in public toilets to wipe up the toilet, both on top and under the seat, and also wipe up the floor. One time at work I didn't realize a huge clot had stuck to the back of my jeans and I had been walking around with it hanging there all day like a dried up piece of jerky. Thank god that's all in the past.

                      Now I have a mustache on one side. Thank goodness it's blond. Wish I could say the same for the horrible witch's hairs growing out of my facial moles. It sucks to be so dang ugly but man someday I'm going to flaunt it.

                        God, I shouldn't read this thread while eating! I nearly spit all over my computer! That sounds so mortifying.

                        Once, because my boyfriend was pissing me off, I told him, "You know... period blood isn't like normal blood... it's dark and has dark bits in it..." That shut him up for a while!

                        A great punishment or manipulation tool for men in our lives is to threaten that you'll tell them gross lady stories!

                          Haha, too true! You would not believe the look on my now-ex's face when I explained a pap smear and an episiotomy to him!

                            It was probably similar to my boyfriend's shocked and disgusted face when I informed him how ladies' public bathrooms have a little trash can in it...

                            Him: "What do you mean a trash can?"

                            Me: "A little one... for sanitary stuff..."

                            Him: "You mean... and they just keep that stuff in the stall?? The used stuff??!!"

                            Me: "The cleaning people empty it! And they usually have doors on top of them so you can't just peer in!"

                            Him: *whimper*

                            Me: "You realize that's the main reason for our bathroom trash can, right?"

                            Yeah, that was another fun conversation!

                            • HAHAHA! oh, I'm much to kind to my hubby - I spare him all these wonderful details. I tell him "babe, I don't want to hear about your amazing bowel movement any more than you want to hear about my period details." Why do men find it so compelling to share the details of their morning constitutional?
                              1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.

                              • Mine doesn't share the details of his, unless the sounds of it can be considered sharing. He's pretty well ashamed. I'm pretty certain he's got the worst case of IBS anyone has ever had. But he won't do a 30-day trial or anything like that. Modern CW has all the answers as far as he's concerned.
