|I experience the same thing EVERY month, the week before my period starts. I start out feeling extremely dry, and the next day, I have fissures. Then, I experience extreme itching and pain for the next week until my period starts. Then, when my period is gone, so are all the symptoms. I don't have the classic yeast infection symptoms, no discharge, and no yeasty smell. I do, however, have a 10 year copper iud. I have gone to the doctor, and he has run numerous tests, month after month, only to tell me it's yeast. I don't think it is. I don't think it's normal to get a yeast infection EVERY month at the same time. Here's what I think. I think that maybe the copper IUD is releasing something into my uterus, and when the lining starts to shed every month, my vagina is irritated by it. I never experienced this before getting the IUD, so that's the only thing I can think of. Anyone else have an IUD here?
I experience the exact same thing every month! Did you ever find out what it is and how to treat it?
