Hi, i wont waste very much time introducing myself..i just want to say that recently..about 1 or 2 months now i have had the feeling of needing to urinate almost all the time. I dont know when it started or why..but when i go urniate, at the end of peeing, i feel a heavy feeling from the vaginal area..like its going to fall out or something.. along with that, even after i pee, i feel like there is still some left.. you know like when you feel like you have just a teeny amount of pee left that you didnt pee out. its that kind of feeling that is annoying. and when i sit to go again, not no more then a pinch of pee comes out. its not like i have a full bladder, but just like i didnt go all of it. I have been taking hyoscyamine, for my ibs problem..and i know that is made to relax muscles, like bladder and uterus also. but it didnt do the pee problem until recently. i dont know if its that that caused it..i heard the muscles can get loose or weak, and kegal exercises have helped people. But its very weird..and I would like to know whats wrong :(
Hello Kristy,

Thank you so much for your reply. I meant to reply it earlier but now that i feel good for the last few days, i tried to take care of the things outside of my apt like shopping etc. Unbelievable but i've tried baking soda even before i wrote here upon reading your posts and i guess it's working. I dont have a bath, i have a shower so what i did was putting the mix in a little bottle and spray it in the shower. One time I did it a bit too much i think, and tried to wash a little more towards inside the opening and ahhhh it was a bad bad day. But the next day i got better, better and better. So i kept washing one day with baking soda (not like that one time which caused me pain) and then i rinse it a bit with hot water..(HOT MAKES ME FEEL SOOOO GOOD)..and then one day i wash it with regular hot water. So far there is still irritation but really very very little (yesssss :))) and the discharge seems to disappear. I told my gyno about this and she said this might be it, too much good bacteria and she told me to wash with apple vinegar (??!!) isnt this supposed to create good bacteria and kill the yeast? im confused, can we also use apple vinegar?
im so happy to see a few people including you has searched so much as much as I did. I was hopeless then i brought the clues together, took me 1.5 years old, tons of tests, a lot of money spent on ignorant doctors, depression, job loss (now im pursuing a different career), and a weak stomach with acid reflux. I feel like my body is full of ACID. I might be growing an alien inside :) if we dont laugh, how can we cope with this right? anyway, im also drinking baking soda because my stomach is developing too much acid...thanks to the doctors who gave me antibiotics and when i told them im having acid reflux, they said KEEP TAKING..i did not..as a result of 2 pills of monodox, i had to start nexium and once you are on nexium, it's very hard to leave because your body wants this medicine to keep the acid balance. This medicine companies are monsters!!! (not all) Now that we are talking about medicine, it's time to talk about this Donaxyl tablet i used. Yes i live in Europe and English is my second language (sorry for grammar mistakes)... here is the ingredients:Dequalinium Chloride...i guess it's good for gram negative and positive bacterias, yeast and trischomonas (although i am negative for all). i searched it, here it is:Fluomizin - Flu omizin is used for the treatment of vaginal infections. It exerts its action locally within the vagina. Marked relief with regard to discharge and inflammation generally occurs within 24-72 hrs. Indications: vaginal infections

I will let this baking soda showers go for a while and if i continue to feel good, i will try some action in bed to see if i will again be sick.

QUESTIONS:
1) How come good bacteria causes urination problems? why did it happen after a UTI? (i actually used lactobolisis vaginal tablets after the antibiotic because the doctor has asked). After sex I have a hard time starting urine...it's like prostates in men. Then burning...days and days...ah God it gives me the chills even to think about it. It continues for months..I was suspicious of a skene's gland infection. What do u think about this?

2) What about augmentine ?

Looking forward to hear from you..
Hi,

I'm so glad to hear the baking soda is helping you. It definitely can sting a little bit if you use too much, but I always take that as a sure sign that it's working. I would suggest you keep doing what you're doing. Eventually you shouldn't have to use the baking soda as often.

I would NOT suggest using apple vinegar. I have no idea where your doctor came up with this. But vinegar is very acidic, and you already have too much acidity. Stick to the baking soda, which is alkalizing.

Like you, It took me way too long to figure out what my problem was. I suffered through 2.5 years of tests, doctors visits, and medical bills, all for nothing. Then one day I decided to start from scratch & just search for my symptoms on the internet to see what could be causing them. I happened to get lucky and come across the cytolytic vaginosis diagnosis, which fit my symptoms perfectly. I immediately went to the store and bought a big box of baking soda.

Yes, it definitely helps to keep a sense of humor about this! If you feel like your entire body is too acidic, you're probably right. I also had digestive issues when I was at the peak of my cytolytic vaginosis misery. But I was taking probiotics, and as soon as I found out I had too much lactobacillus, I stopped taking the probiotics (which contained 5 different species of lactobacillus). That solved my digestive issues. But you could keep drinking the baking soda mixed with water, that should help you. You should also try sticking to very alkalizing foods for a while (lots of veggies mostly), and avoid acidic foods like tomatoes and oranges. You could even buy some pH test strips if you wanted to. You can pee on them to see how acidic your urine (& thus probably your whole body) is. I followed an alkalizing diet very strictly for 8 weeks when doctors told me I had interstitial cystitis. I would pee on the pH strips every time I went and if my urine was very acidic I would make sure to eat more alkalizing foods.

I think antibiotics could be part of what causes this bacterial imbalance. Maybe you and I took too many antibiotics prescribed by doctors (I know I did), and our bodies started making more lactobacillus to try to balance everything out. You're right though... most of these prescription medicines are bad and cause more problems than they solve. The donaxyl tablets you used probably killed off a lot of the lactobacillus you had at first and made you feel a bit better. But then the lactobacillus eventually comes back and you feel worse again. I went through this a lot with different antibiotics I was on. I would feel better for a couple days when I first started a new antibiotic, and then after a couple days I would feel even worse than before.

To try to answer some of your questions... I think the lactobacillus causes urinary symptoms because there is just way too much of it. The lactobacillus actually starts to destroy the vaginal tissue once there is way too much of it. Since the urethra & glands are right up there in the vagina, they also get red, sore, swollen & damaged by the lactobacillus overgrowth. This is my theory anyway. As for why it happened after a UTI, my guess is that the imbalance was caused by the antibiotics they gave us for the UTI. At one point I thought I had a skene's gland infection too. I went on a 12-week course of doxycycline antibiotic because this is what I read was effective in treating a skene's gland infection. No surprise, it only made my real problem worse. I really think the glands just become swollen & sore when there is too much lactobacillus around. But I think the problem is outside the glands, not inside.

Augmentin is just another antibiotic. If I was you, I would stay away from all antibiotics, and all prescription drugs completely for a while if you can. I have had better results just educating myself on the internet, using baking soda baths, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements & seeing my naturopathic doctor from time to time. So that would be my recommendation. I have given up on conventional medicine & doctors. All they do is take your money & give you prescription drugs.

Let me know how it goes & if I can be of any more help. Again, I'm so happy to hear that you're seeing improvement in your condition!
