What to Do If You Suspect You Have a Blue Waffle Infection

If you think you might have a blue waffle infection, you’re probably quite desperate to solve the problem. However, when you’re dealing with this infection, like any other infection, there is a specific sequence with which you’ll need to tackle the problem. In this article, we look at what that sequence is, so that you can take appropriate action.

Get Tested

The infection can mimic all kinds of other diseases and disorders, and there’s no way to tell whether you have a blue waffle unless you get tested for it.

The good news is that the test for infections is simple and painless, and simply involves taking a fluid sample, which your doctor will then send for analysis.

Get Treatment

Once your doctor has confirmed that you do indeed have a blue waffle disease, the next step is to get treatment for bacterial vaginosis.

Treatment for the condition usually includes an antibiotic, which will help to bring the ‘bad’ bacteria overgrowth back in check. You should know, however, that because the infections are treated with antibiotics, there is a possibility that you will develop a yeast infection once the antibiotics start to work. Try to counteract this, by eating live culture yoghurt, or taking an acidophilus supplement, to replenish the ‘good’ microbial flora in your vagina.

Special Considerations

There are a few things you will need to take into account, if you need to seek treatment for a blue waffle. First, there’s growing evidence that vaginal treatment can be dangerous for pregnant women, so if you’re pregnant, and suffering from a infection, your doctor will almost certainly recommend oral treatment.

Then there’s the fact that both vaginal and oral treatments do have side effects, some of which are unpleasant. Make sure you discuss these with your doctor, so you’re aware of what to expect before you start treatment for a blue waffles infection.

Another important consideration, when you’re seeking treatment, is that most of the medications prescribed to treat the problem cannot be taken with alcohol. That means that for the duration of your treatment, you will need to abstain from drinking.

Some of the vaginal treatments contain oils, which can weaken condoms and diaphragms, so make sure that you take extra precautions when having sex!

The Good News

The good news is that blue waffle infection is not a serious problem, in the vast majority of cases. It can be triggered by anything that allows the bacteria naturally in your vagina to multiply too much, but it’s generally very easy to treat.

Many women don’t even know that they have a blue waffle too, since it’s often present without any symptoms. It’s worth asking your gynaecologist to check, however, if you have a this infection when you have a routine check up, since it can cause problems if you get pregnant.
