Every time I have sex, his sperm is irritating my vagina and I have worse symptoms of itchiness and bad odor. I have some sort of fungal infection. I suspect I got it from my husband as I have it since we are married (6 years) When I went to the obgyn for checkup he thought it was yeast infection by mere listening to my complain. He never tested it in lab. Back then I had no rash but now I have slight rash, and my vagina looks red and irritated. I refuse to do sex until I am healed and my husband as well to be free of whatever is it can be transmitted to me.
My husband used to have fungal rash in his genitals and his feet. He forgot about treating it before we were married, and forgot about avoiding sex until it was healed. He used some conventional cream (Loprox Gel) on his feet and his genitals and the fungal infection was gone. (6 years ago)
but now he has fungal infection in his feet again. The bad odor from his feet is similiar to the bad odor in my vagina.
I need help, this is realy irritating me! I wonder if I will use achidophilus pills or tea tree oil or coconut oil, what if HIS sperm is irritating me?
I am new to this group also. My husband and I of 15 years struggle with much the same problem. I was married prior and never had a problem like this. Once a year visits to my Obgyn for regular check ups, that was it. My gyn once thought it was because I had long periods, to much bleeding, warmth, bacteria........... I have had a hyterectomy and the problem continues. My husband foot doctor said his fungus on his feet is most likely systemic, and this can possibly be passed to me sexually.My husband has been on many antifungal, with nothing helping. My husband also has an itch. We have spoken to many doctors from the beginning of our marriage, to no resolve. With me it goes from bacteria, yeast, and even in extreme a mix of both fungal, baterial, and then a bladder infection to make things worse. Sex that should be so wonderful is not fun anymore, the results afterwards are just not worth the itching, irritation, odor, and frustration. We have tryed many things, herbs, probiotic, antibiotics, cream. Still nothing helping. I would love to have answers.
This is so difficult. This was a great thread to read. I have also done boric acid suppositories, probiotic suppositories, tea tree oil, and tryed candida cleanse, even parasite cleanses incase I was missing something. Nothing has resolved the issues. I am getting desparate, and as I age more and more, I guess in a few years it just won't matter, LOL!!!!
I know my GYN has talked to me about cutting out all sugar, but she said we would have to both do this for it to work. I have talked to my husband about trying this route, it would just be hard for him. He is a hard working construction worker, and going on a yeast curing diet just wouldn't work for him. I know our doctor said 6 months of this type of diet and it should work both on yeast and bacteria because the Sugar feeds both of these problems. I tryed it for 6 months, I lost 20 pds which was needed but the itching is still a problem. She also spoke to me about staying in the hospital for a length of time having a IV drip of vitamin C. I didn't think to ask questions about that, but I would be willing to give it a try. Interesting you talked about a zapper. My husband got a machine that is very similar to a zapper for his bad knee, it allows electric current into an area of damage using batteries. I tryed it over my liver last year and passed stones. It does work. I had just done a parasite cleanse also, so I had no parasites to kill at the time by zapping them. I know that the zapper can work for all kinds of aliments. Ok, since we are being so honest here, does anyone else itch all the way back to the rectum also? I do. This is not pinworms, it is just an itch. I hate this problem.
I itch too all the way to the rectum. The way to use the zapper to kill all parasites is to attach the zapper to the hands, by holding it in both hands. one hand hold the positive current, and the other hand hold the negative current. Get an emergency blanket that is lined with aluminum. get wrapped in it. put towel between the hands and the cover so they don't touch the cover. Also avoid touching your hands with each other, as it can cause elecrtity shock. get the zapper on and be wrapped for 3 minutes. they claim it kills all parasites and candida.
Interestingly, my husband is also a construction worker. Maybe this is the toxicity of the construction chemicals? My husband gets better if he takes vitamin C ascorbate: 1/2 teaspoon of vitamin C powder + 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. pour water on it. let it fizz until it ceases to fizz. Fill up the cup at least 6 oz. drink it 2 - 3 times a day. Also CoQ enzyme 10, a good multivitamin and chlorella (to remove heavy metals) if my husband takes them his dandruff on his head and beard and ears gets better. (but he didn't try the zapper as we have to get it + the blanket)
Thank you so much for this information. I am going to share this with my husband also. There are alot of toxins in construction. My husband also welds and is inhaling all the fumes. He does take daily activated charaol to clear toxins and milk thistle to support the liver. I will try to get him on the daily vitamin c and baking soda and see if that doesn't address the other problems.
I have successfully used Vitamin C to treat my BV. I get uncoated Vitamin C tablets and use them occasionally vaginally. I say "successfully treat" because it does eliminate the symptoms of itching and odor for awhile. If the BV is so bad that I am irritated and itching then the Vitamin C burns, and I have had people tell me (as I am writing a blog about all of this http://curezone.com/blogs/m.asp?f=247&i=20
that the Vitamin C treatment has caused them to have a blood-streaked discharge.
I suspect that is because it is very acidic and when inserted in the vagina, doesn't really move around much until it dissovles, so maybe irritates that one area until it dissolves. I don't know.
I have also used hydrogen peroxide douches and this works to immediately neutralize the odor. I can also tell the difference as to how much "bad" and "good" bacteria is present by how much bubbling effect there is with the Hydrogen peroxide... but again, if I am already very irritated and itching then the hydrogen peroxide burns.
Just recently I have used gynecort cream on the vulvar area because the itching and burning were very bad, and then used RePhresh Gel to try and return the vaginal Ph to what it should be, and this is just a temporary fix too.
This sound like exactly what was happening to me with my ex boyfriend that I have come to refer to as "Mr. Lye". I have had another partner recently and do not get this with him.
If I recall Mr, Lye had some fungal foot issues too.
Anyway, I feel for you ladies because you are married and it must be hard when you love someone and there is so much pain and trauma related to making love. When I was dating Mr. Lye, I looked all over the internet and found very little information on this. Some sources said it was the sperm making my vagina alkaline which caused the bacteria to grow. That is how I have come to call him Mr. Lye. Well that and for other reasons. The name suits him perfectly. One thing for certain though it is not all sperm, it was HIS sperm.
But is it because it was something contagious or is it because something was making his sperm very alkaline or was it just a clash of body chemistries. There is very little info availbable about this subject.
#42414, I just wanted to mention that Replens is made by the same people as RePhresh. It's a vaginal moisturizer and works the same to change the pH. I find it lasts longer and doesn't cost as much. It's also a temporary fix, but can help some. I've been taking Ester C, too, and that does seem to help, also.
You're welcome. I appreciate your blog, too - nice of you to help.
I went to the health store yesterday. The lady owner suggested tea tree douches; I tried once so far. She said twice a week should do it. So far, she's really been helpful, so I usually follow her suggestions. I'll post how I do with it.
Does your husband have Amalgam (which are mercury) fillings? If so, this may be causing the constant systemic fungus. If he has no mercury fillings, you might want to look into heavy metal chelation. If he has mercury fillings, it would be wise to take them out and then chelate. The other thing to possibly check is thyroid function and adrenal function, which could be depressed from metals or toxins.
The biggest challenge is to get to the root cause and fix that instead of treating symptoms.
It is good to take Vitamin C and other toxin removers.
Interesting you would talk about amalgams. My husband has had his Amalgams removed and so have I. We are very familiar with heavy metal poisoning and the chronic candida that comes along with heavy metal toxins in the system. My husband has taken Alpha Lipoic acid which chelates heavy metals. He also eats an enomous amount of cilantro which also chelates. He takes high doses of vitamins, and also minerals. Still there has been no relief for either one of us. This has been such a struggle. I even started acidophilis vaginally with very little relief, a few day of no itching and now the itching is back as is the smell, and no intimacy with my husband in a long time, so we are not passing the infection back and forth, we just both continue to itch.
Good job for both of you on the Amalgam removal. Are you both working with a good doc for the chelation process? Have you had all your organ systems checked, such as thyroid, adrenals, etc? Have you done complete colon cleansing and liver flushing and parasite cleansing?
Here is something that you could try. It is for systemic bacteria and fungus. It is very strong and works well. Just an idea.
Not meaning to get off the subject here. Actually we are now chelating our autistic son, or I would say mercury poisoned via immunizations. Right now he is a priority for chelation, as he is doing better all the time. for him we are working with an excellent doctor, all out of pocket, ouch!!!. I haven't done a complete Colon Cleanse yet. I have done a good gall bladder cleanse and I believe that may have addressed the liver also. I passed many Gallstones and a liver fluke, and egg sacs, scary!!!!! I have done several parasite cleanses and seen many parasites, small ones in my stool, and am now doing both a candida cleanse and parasite cleanse. The parasite cleanse does do a good cleaning of the colon. I haven't seen much in the way of parasites with this cleanse which is encouraging. I do know that if my husband is not doing those same cleanses properly we will just continue to be plagued with our problems, as he passes what ever he has to me. We stay at arm lengths away from each other. I think we both need to be cleansed to clear up our problems.
I am a former Toxic Mold exposure patient, turned researcher. I had high levels of mold fungi throughout my body, including yeast infection in my anus. I have spent the past five years extensively researching how mold fungi do what they do to the human body. Several things stood out from the various entries. First I don't believe mold fungi transferred in the semen. But, it can transfer on the skin of the penis. If your husbands do any remodeling there is a very high probability they brought mold spores home on their clothes. Especially if they were around dry rot. Mold is what sucks the moisture and the nutrients out of wood to turn it into dry rot.
It does the same thing in the vagina to make it sensitive to rubbing, which irritates the tissues. Yet, there is still enough warmth and moisture to provide ideal conditions for fungal growth. Earlier today I saw an interesting writeup by batmanrules on a coconut oil liver/gallbladder cleanse that had very good results.
Topical solutions will not solve this problem. It is systemic for both of you. Do you have ANY mold in your home? If you do, this is your underlying source of mold for both of you. Sometimes tou don't even see it, if it is in your walls, ceiling or flooring. The mycoTOXINS they produce to kill off their microbial competitors, are concentrated and weaponized to make some of the most powerful biological weapons on earth, T-2 Mycotoxin.
First it is important to eliminate ANY source of microbes. I recommend ALL people should have an air cleaner with a HEPA filter to capture any microbes in your breathing environment. Fungi are non-chlorophyll in nature. So, I added chlorophyllin to my diet to saturate my all my tissues and organs with it. I take 100mg three times a day. It is also used in colostomy bags to take away the odor. Interesting huh.
My house has no mold, thankfully. but he is working fixing houses. What can he do to get rid of that mold? By the way, recently our basement had flood and the carpeting there (that was installed by stupid former residents! duh!) got soaked and yucky moldy smell. my husband removed it, and exposed the cement floor then painted it. in the end he put throw rugs. so I guess he got re-exposed to mold that adds more mold to what he had before. so my main desperate question is: how can he get rid of the mold in his body AND protect himself from MORE mold he might be re-exposured as he constructs other people's houses?
I have the same problem, when my husband ejaculates inside of me it burn horrible and I get really swollen, like an allergic reaction to the semen. My husband is also a Type 1 diabetic with constant high Blood Sugar (BS) reading (200+). Sometimes it doesn't burn but I noticed that if his BS is high it burns me and a few days later I get BV or yeast infections. The 1st time I got BV was while been sexually active with him about 4 years now, and ever since I have been suffering from chronic BV. I can deal with the Yeast infection but I can't stand getting BV and I'm tired of this. Any diabetic wives having chronic BV or Yeast infection after intercourse? Can his High BS levels increase the Yeast levels in his system and him passing the yeast bacteria directly into my vagina? Can a man get BV or Yeast infection with no symptoms? He said he has no itching nor burning sensation when he urinates.
Coconut oil is my best friend in this department. It contains laurie acid and caprylic acid which neutralises the alkaline environment created by the semen (an environment perfect for the bacteria to thrive). It is very gentle and a great odor killer. I use it directly after and continuously for about 3 days to eliminate the issue and to once more restore peace and prosperity to the region. Other "light acids" that are often recommended include yoghurt and vitamin C but i haven't tried those myself.
