Progesterone, Candida, and Hormones
Hi Wray. I wrote to you before about my vulvodynia and Natpro.
After extensive research and backtracking to when my pain started, I realized it was after going off birth control and MANY rounds of antibiotics. (think 5+)
I have known I have systemic candida for quite a while.
Since going on the Natpro, my hormone imbalance and is much better. I find my intense depression is almost non existant at 300 mg/day.
Some VVS experts/doctors say that birth control pills trick the body into thinking it's getting enough estrogen and testosterone, so the body stops making these hormones. When the woman goes off The Pill, the body isn't making the estrogen and testosterone that the vulva area desperately needs. Topical hormone treatment seems to really help and can even the cure V if this is the root cause.
Would taking Natpro help the body make its own hormones again and allow the estrogen and testosterone to go to the vulva, or would you still need topical hormone application to that area?
I hope that makes sense.
I'm slowly but surely making all of the connections between hormones and yeast and there are plenty.
Have a great day!
