Investigation on Recurring Yeast Infection that Link to Birth Control Pills

Recurring yeast infection started since taking birth control pill. She tried Fluconazole and it only helped her for a month.

Case #: 


I have recurring yeast infection every month since I started taking birth control pills five months ago. Tried Fluconazole and it only helped me for a month. Sadly, I am sure I have passed this on to my hubby. My desire for sex is at all time low.


Possibly your yeast infections are the result of the progestin in your birth control.  Fluconazole is not going to help you as long as you continue with birth control. Check with your doctor for another medication.
About Fluconazole

Fluconazole is an anti-fungal drug used for superficial and systemic fungal infection. It's white crystalline powder and dissolvable in water. It has numerous common side effects, such as rash, headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, elevated liver enzymes, anorexia, fatigue, and constipation.

Hormone-based birth control emulates a pregnancy state by flooding the brain with excessive progesterone and/or estrogen, so that your brain will think you are pregnant and then shut down your ovarian function. This results in excessive progesterone or estrogen in the uterus and cervix. When the liver fails to detoxify the excessive hormones and to fully support the synthesis of the neurotransmitters dopamine, acetylcholine and serotonin, you may suffer from depression, low libido and orgasmic dysfunction.
Progestin in hormone-based birth control generally causes a heavy vaginal discharge, due to the over-stimulation of the cervix by excessive progesterone.  The artificial hormones Progestin and Conjugated Estrogen can cause spotting from the uterine lining.  When the spotting is very small, it will stay inside the vagina and mix with cervical mucus.  When the spotting blood is oxidized, the resulting vaginal discharge becomes dark black or brown, depending on the quantity of the spotting blood and the duration it was trapped inside.  If it is trapped for too long, yeast can change its color to black or produce a bad smell.

One of the reasons I always tell everyone that asks me about birth control to not take it. There are some really serious side effects sometimes.

I had a friend that had constant problems with yeast infection. It would seem everytime she did something sexual she would get infected. I don't know how she is going to do all this. She would always have to go into her cleansing cycles. Now I am going to tell her to stop taking her birth control or to change which one she takes.
