Anyone Experience Chronic Yeast Infection And Found Natural Ways To Solve ?

I was recently diagnosed with pcos after a frustrating few months of not having a period for multiple months as we were preparing to try for a second little one. Part of my symptoms related/unrelated were also a constant yeast infection that was constantly being misdiagnosed. My labs are normal and not showing signs of being pre/diabetic.

Intimate Question!!

Intimate Question!!

Simple question, and please be honest!
Do you, as women with PCOS, reach the satisfaction point very easy and in short time, while making love with your husband/partner?

In my case, it's almost impossible, and that disappointed me in so many ways..😔
I don't wish to use any object and I'll never do that. My husband is a normal healthy man who loves me, and trying so hard to please me, I love him more than anything, I just wish my sex life is complete!!

doesn't take long for my mate to make sure my needs are taken care of if I am in the mood, if not in the mood then we skip my end of the deal and just focus on them instead.

Prostaglandins?

Prostaglandins?

Has anyone learned about prostaglandins and PCOS? The more I learn about what they do to the body, the more I think they have been the root of a lot of suffering for me. One doctor advised me to take naproxen (Aleve) to reduce prostaglandins. But now I'm having painful attacks sometimes at different times in my cycle and not able to predict when to take naproxen. Thanks for any advice.
