  • Yeast IC Connection?

    Has any one made a connection with yeast and IC? My IC symptoms started after 3 rounds of very powerful antibiotics for UTI's. It just makes sense to me that yeast may be in some way connected. Has anyone done any treatment for yeast? I do not have a vaginal yeast infection, just the usual bladder symptoms. I have read stories online about people who have gone into remission after yeast treatment. I just don't know where to start.

    I am not sure if there is a connection but with IC and yeast, but I know if I took more than one set of ab's I would have a yeast infection.

    I take diflucan after every set of ab's

      I don't know, I don't have any yeast issues that I know of. I haven't had vaginal yeast in over 5 years. I took a test on-line to determine if I might have too much yeast and it was negative. I do take one or two primadophilis reuteri every day, follow a low sugar diet and a relatively lower carb diet (about 100g). Thats not to say that yeast couldn't make it worse though if you had it, I just don't know about a connection for me anyways.

        I know yeast is connected. When I have a yeast infection it makes my IC so much worse. Not sure how or why. There is a couple of books that mention yeast in them. I will get back to you on what books--currently all my IC books are at my grandmas house, since I've read them all.
        Diagnosis: IC '09, vulvodynia '10, fructose intolerance '06, GERD '06, fibromyalgia '09, IBS '10 and TMJ '09, PCOS '11, genital herpes '12

        Current Meds: Butrans patch, welbutrin, lamictol, geodon, xanax, aldactone, linzess, topimax, trazadone and diflucan as needed.

        Meds tried before: Elmiron, elavil, antibiotics, welbutrin, cymbalta, prozac, nerve blocks, instills, nyastatin, flexerol, percocet, naproxen (which was what I was given for pain for years).

          actually I started getting alot of UTI before being diagnosed with IC. then all of a sudden I had my first yeast infection, so far only two in a year. I thought that was odd since I never had a yeast infection my whole life.

            in to wake in tears it mentions yeast as a culprit for IC for ppl who have mild and moderate. It also has an anti candidia program in the book.
