I am having an odd problem, I'd appreciate it if anyone here could give me some pointers.
I have recently been having stomach troubles, loose stools, less amount and more often than usual, and a little crampiness. I'm no stranger to tummy troubles, but the cramping is unusual for me.
The thing that's bothering me most tho, is that my vagina also smells bad with this. It smells like 'stomach', I dunno like bad (very bad) breath or stomach acidy or something. I've had yeast infections, I've smelled like bread down there before and itched. And I've had plenty of tummy troubles, but I've never had my puss smell like stomachy stuff before. It's really freaking me out- I have no idea what it could be- it's like i'm backing up with some kind of toxin (even tho I've been more 'backed up' stomach-wise before), or maybe a leaky gut due to candida?
I have been eating entirely too much sugar for quite a while now, and have stopped it in the past four days (which this odd thing has flared up right after I quit the sugar). I have been taking a lot of raw apple cider vinegar (both internally and vaginally), I realize I've only been doing this two days, but it doesn't seem to be helping this time, and now with the funny smell my puss has been having a very thin fliud in it, itching slightly.. It is starting to look *a little* like an infection, but it still doesn't smell like an infection, it smells like a bad tummy, and it *only* does this when my tummy is also bad.
I had this last month for short, also coinciding with the same type of bad tummy, but both went away when (of all things) I ate some magic mushrooms. I guess they kinda caused my to flush my system to get them out. That nite wasn't terribly pleasant, and obviously wasn't a permanent fix. And it's not really a fix that I would do again. Unless I wanted to trip, which I wouldn't want to do again unless I was feeling very well.
Both times this problem has appeared in the last few days of my fertile cycle, right around ovulation. this time there seems to be a slight discharge or thinning of the existing fluids, so I can't tell about my cycle fluids.
My b/f thinks the smell could be caused by using lube and spermicidal condoms- I know that such condoms weaken my puss, and I know that sometimes the lube hurts when too much is used.. but that doesn't explain the tummy. (A couple weeks ago my chiropractor said I wasn't producing enough stomach acid, and in the last couple of days my gall bladder seems to have quit working so well.) Perhaps I've gotten a little too rambunctious with the b/f, perhaps it is the sugar, perhaps stress.. I dunno.. all I know is it is very freaky...
Any input on this will be appreciated.. thanks in advance..
