Natural Cure: Yeast Infection

Yeast infections can be eliminated rapidly and for ever

Getting Rid Of A Yeast Infection Naturally

Written By: admin - Feb• 23•12

Have you been struggling to figure out how to get rid of a yeast infection quickly? Today I will provide the fastest natural relief solutions around for yeast infections so you don't have to suffer through them anymore. I will discuss some suggestions of things to do as soon as you believe you're coming down with a yeast infection and I'll end the article with discussing yeast infection treatments that can provide relief in less than 5 hours.

First things first if you're going to get rid of early yeast infections you need to do the following:

Air yourself out - I don't mean hang out to dry, rather you should move around a lot and try not to sit down very much at the onset as yeast love moist warm environments such as the ones created in between your legs when you sit. In the privacy of your own home the best thing to do is walk around bottomless as much as possible. Oxygen is the natural opponent of a yeast infection. If you continually air yourself out then you'll find the yeast infection will dissipate fast and in some cases it won't even be able to manifest if you use some other natural treatments early on.

Drink lots of Cranberry Juice - An interesting thing about yeast infections is that a lot of them are the result of a pH change in the vagina. You want an acidic vagina, however most yeast infections are caused when for one reason or another the vagina becomes alkaline. Drinking not from concentrate 100% pure organic cranberry juice can reverse this pH back to an acidic level.

Avoid Tight underwear and pants - These trap heat and moisture in, effectively speeding up the developing yeast infection. To put it bluntly if you choose to wear tight fitting pants that suffocate the genital area, don't be surprised if there is a full blown yeast infection underneath when you pull them off.

Lastly there are some other natural yeast infection treatments that can actually destroy a developing yeast infection before it even begins, these treatments need to be applied immediately for the greatest effect. However they can also be incredibly effective mid way through a yeast infection. Proper instructions are needed though as many of these powerful natural treatments can actually harm you if not done properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    I'm 14 and I thin I have a yeast infection. I really don't want to tell my parents about it to get medicine. Plus I hate putting medicines and chemicals into my body anyway. Are there any ways to get rid of it naturally without medicine?

    • ANSWER:
      if you have yeast infection then you must get rid of it as soon as it is possible!!!

      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection then you must follow these tips - they worked for me:

      1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

      5) Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      7) also you should use some herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
      And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore (almost 2 years) ...

  2. QUESTION:
    How do i get rid of my yeast infection naturally and without having to go to the doctor?
    It really itches and i'm using a cream to make it stop which really helps. I don't want to go to the doctor because it grosses me out but I would really like to get rid of it naturally

    • ANSWER:
      There are tons of over the counter remedies in drugstores. Just get one of those. Also, sleep without undies for several days to air it out, yeast is caused by moisture. Acidolpholus (available in health stores) is friendly bacteria and a natural treatment, but will take a LONG time to cure that way.

      Antibiotics aren't a cure for yeast, they actually cause yeast infections. A doctor would just give you an antifungal med for it anyway.

  3. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection naturally while pregnant?

    • ANSWER:
      Plain yogurt. No flavors. Betadine swabs. Cranberry juice to flush your system.

  8. QUESTION:
    how can you naturally get rid of a yeast infection?
    My best friend thinks she has a yeast infection but she doesnt want her mom to find out that she has been having sex but and she dosnt know how to get rid of it. Plus shes very diffcult she has to have every thing nautral. This is my question though can you still have sex with a yeast infection.

    • ANSWER:
      NO you can't have sex with a yeast infection because she will give it to him and then they will just go back and forth with it. Secondly- a girl can get a yeast infection from other things besides sex. You can get a yeast infection from taking antibiotics and you can get one from just not changing your underwear, and you can get one from not eating the right kinds of food. So that shouldn't be an issue. Tell her to go buy some medicine you can get it over the counter. Or if she is really hard up on being stupid and not getting it fixed: which will eventually lead up to an std....then tell her to eat alot of yogurt: acidopholis(acid-da-fo-lus) is the ingrediant that kills yeast. She can get it in pill form at the vitamin/drug stores. PS...NO ITS NOT AN STD, BUT IF SHE IS STUPID ENOUGH TO NOT GET IT TAKEN CARE OF THEN SHE IS STUPID ENOUGH TO GET AN STD.

  9. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to naturally get rid of a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way is by eating yogurts that have healthy bacterias. .Sometimes the pH levels get unbalances. Water and vinegar Douche works well also. See this link that's super helpful. Good luck we all go through it.

  10. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    I am not positive if i have a yeast infection. I have normal discharge for pergnancy but it has a tint of yellow and i herd that can mean a yeast infection, but i dont itch or it doesnt smell. I guess i have 2 questions, is it a yeast infection from what ihave told you and if so how do i get rid of it without meds. Im very nervouse bout taking meds while pregnant and dont want to stick anything up there during this period.
    I see everyonw is saying yogart, but i drink a yogart smoothie a day, cause i cant gain wait and im a pre-school teacher and its hard to get a great meal in.

    • ANSWER:
      yogurt is good for keeping your body's natural pH balanced which will prevent and treat a yeast infection. But from what you've described, if it's only a little bit yellowish, and it doesn't smell, itch, burn, or have a thick/chunky texture (yea, icky I know); that doesn't sound like a yeast infection. Normal discharge can be clear, milky, or slightly yellow in color.

  11. QUESTION:

  12. QUESTION:
    How do I naturally (without medicine) get rid of a yeast infection?
    I want to know of a way that I can cure the yeast infection that I have without buying a yeast infection cream or chemical. The only symtom that I have right now is discharge, I know that it is a yeast infection and nothing else because I have had yeast infections before and I know, what they are like by now. Please help me! This is ANNOYING!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Try drinking kefir, it's been used for hundreds of years and the probiotics in it really keep the yeast infections in check for women. I really enjoy Lifeway Kefir because it's very tasty (You can get plain, strawberry, or other flavor) and it has 10 live cultures.

      You can check what local stores carry it. I drink kefir very often (people do in Russia) and I never had a yeast infection in my life.

    how to get rid of my yeast infection, naturally.?
    Can some one pleaseee tell me the natural cure for yeast infections?

  14. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection on a budget?
    I have a yeast infection that didn't react to what the doctor prescribed... I can't afford to go back to the doctor. I also don't want to spend too much money on something over-the-counter that might not work either. Does anyone know of any easy ways of getting rid of this naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      I've heard about the yogart, I think you use the bifidus yogart, although I have never tried it. Once you are rid of the infection drink lots of fluid, about 2 litres per day, and cranberry juice is also good, one or 2 glasses per day. Really this is an area that you cannot compromise on , go back to the doc, tell him it did not work. I know you have a rather tight budget, but your health is really one area you cannot compromise on.

  15. QUESTION:
    I'm pretty sure that I might have a yeast infection. What can I do naturally to get rid of it?
    For may be a week now, I had discharge that kind of looks like cottage cheese. It smells like absolutely nothing. I have had discharge for a year and it's always been normal except for now. I haven't gotten my period either. I don't know what could have caused it because I'm not on antibiotics and don't use scented soaps down there or wear scented underwear. I always wash everyday so I really don't know. I'm away right now because I visit my grandparents in Seattle every summer for about 2 or 3 weeks so I can't really go to the doctor or speak to my mom about it in person. Is this a yeast infection and if it is, how do I use yogurt to cure it? Also, it is not an STD because i am only 12 and have never had sex.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      There are many things you need to start doing and addressing if you are suffering from a yeast infection. To start, do the following:

      1. Wear loose clothing and undergarments, oxygen kills yeast, going commando and wearing nothing down there if possible is even better.

      2. Get some unsweetened yogurt and rub it onto a tampon, insert the tampon and do this continually until the yeast infection is gone. If this doesn't work for you, you can also use your fingers, however make sure you are laying down on your back to prevent it from dripping out.

      3. Cut out any and all sugar, alcohol and yeast from your diet. All three will promote the infection further.

      4. Start drinking cranberry juice, pure not from concentrate with no added sugar, I know this goes against the no sugar thing but the acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.

      5. If you can tolerate it, use a raw garlic clove and apply it to the infection, this may burn so dilute it with some olive or coconut oil, both of which can also help eliminate the yeast, especially the coconut.

      6. You can also try taking some vitamin B3, many women find their infections resolve quicker when they are taking 300mg/per day.

      7. Take a probiotic with at least 50 billion live cells per pill, this is key in redistributing good bacteria throughout your body, and effectively end the yeast infection. I know the brand renew life has a good one.

      8. Lastly if all else fails, begin adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath. Only fill the tub up high enough to submerge your genital area. Stay in the tub for 20-30 minutes at a time.

      Hope this helps, the yogurt is the key really, by putting good bacteria directly on the area you will eliminate it quickly. Make sure it is unsweetened and ideally keep an eye out for a variation called Kefir which has even more beneficial bacteria in it to snuff out the infection.

      When all is said and done I would suggest you research Candida and take a test to determine if you are suffering from it, as anyone who gets yeast infections has Candida, it's just a matter of how bad it is.

  16. QUESTION:
    yeast infection cant get rid of suggestions please?
    okay so i have had this yeast infection for a while and i can get rid of it
    i eat yoplait yogurt everyday because it has live cultures in it
    and im orally taking AZO everyday
    ive been doing this for 5 days now and it seems like it has not changed or it just became worse.

    suggestions please??? anything else i can get rid of naturally

    oh and i do you monostat cream which really helps
    thanks for your answers
    i dont have health insurance therefore cant go to a doctor & im only 17 my mom knows i have it so she told me to use AZO.
    but thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Once you get a yeast infection, the natural route usually doesn't work. You will have to get a prescription from a doctor. The doctor will usually give you one pill (taken orally), that will kill the infection within 3 days. But depending on the doctor.

      Yogurt is to give your body a head start on preventing yeast infections, not to cure it completely... and AZO not a good idea to take that everyday, simply because your body will become to dependent on it and once you stop taking AZO a yeast infection may appear...

      Mono state is ok, but its only a temporary relief. Depending on how long you've had your infection depends on how potent the medication should be and mono state is a very mild yeast cream, unless you try mono state 7.

      Get checked by a doctor, then continue eating yogurt, drinking plenty of water, wearing all cotton undies, looser pants and eating not too many carbs. because yeast (candida bacteria) feeds on sugar and multiply.

      If you take the precautions everyday, you will not have any yeast infection problems, because once you've had an yeast infection, its extremely easy to get re-occurring infections.

  17. QUESTION:
    does nappy rash cream help to get rid of yeast infection ? help?
    I think I have yeast infection, and I've had it for quite a while now.
    I didn't know it was yeast infection. But I do think it is because I do mostly everything that I am not supposed to do ( that causes the yest infection ) such as wearing skinny jeans, tights and leotard ( for dance classes 5 times a week. ) but I do use cotton pads when I am on my period.
    I am 14 years old any I do not want to tell my mom about this ! this is just way too embarrassing for me.
    I don't care if you guys are telling me to suck it up and be a woman and just tell her. I am really shy and I am like a closed book and I barely open my self to anyone about problems like these.
    my symptoms are ;
    redness on the vaginal area.
    it itches sometimes.
    Something around the vagina ( not actually in the vagina ) that looks white and smells funny but you can't feel any smell unless you touch it and smell the finger. ( ew. )

    I am currently using a nappy rash cream to clear it up. The name of the cream is Déflamol and it's for little babies. You use it to get rid of nappy rash and it heals and gets rid of all bacteria. You use it for itchiness and it's also used in allot of treatments aginst psoriasis.

    I don't even know how to say Yeast infection in my language and I don't think my mom will understand what it is and I won't want to have to describe all this because I barely know anything about it. I don't want to go to the doctor.
    Is there a way I can get rid of this naturally ?
    Do you think the Déflamol nappy rash cream will work ?

    p.s. sorry for my bad english ;s
    thank you for taking a look at my question.
    and I am not sexually active ;)
    okay so I told my mother !
    and she knew what I was talking about :)
    she gave me vagasil cream. I put it on, does it clear up the infection ? O.o

  18. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection?
    I don't like taking medication, and the over the counter treatments at the drug store hurt and burn and I would not like to use them.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of a yeast infection naturally??

    • ANSWER:
      While a doctors perscription is best, there are some other things you can try to get rid of a yeast infection.

      Boric acid capsules are good, and sometimes they work better than an otc remedy. You would have to make the capsules yourself by putting the powder into empty caps. You can buy boric acid at the pharmacy in the eyecare section (it is a mild antiseptic). Put one capsule into your vag once in the morning and once at night for 2 weeks. there will be a little bit of watery discharge, but it works, and its inexpensive. I swear by it! !

      You can also use the capsules if you think you might have a yeast infection coming on. One or 2 treatments may nip the problem in the bud. I havent had an infection since I began using it

      Also, make sure you don't injest any boric acid. It is toxic if taken orally.

      Another thing you can do to prevent yeast infections is to eat plenty of yogurt, and take a folic acid suppliment daily.

  19. QUESTION:
    How can both BV and yeast infection be treated naturally?
    If they can't, what product do I need to use to get rid of both of them, and do I need a prescription?

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections aren't that easy to permanently get rid of. Many products can temporarily relieve the symptoms, but a long term treatment approach will be your best bet to completely elliminate it.

      One of the more popular and effective homeopathic solutions is yeastrol. It's very effective at treating vaginal, penile and oral yeast infections.

      What you can also do to speed your recovery is to change you diet in a way that will starve the yeast organisms (Candida).

      Things that you should remove from your diet are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour,
      alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold.

      Things to add to your diet are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice and oat brans

      Another thing to keep in mind is that both you and your partner should consider the diet change/yeastrol treatment as you can be passing the infection back and forth between you.

      Hope this helps and best of luck! :)

  21. QUESTION:
    Natural Yeast Infection Cures Treatments?
    i am taking antibiotics and now i have a yeast infection. I am not happy.is there any way i can get rid of the infection naturally? any tip will be appreciated thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt - there's nothing in Greek yoghurt that will help, the reason pro-biotic yoghurt helps is because it contains lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that creates hydrogen peroxide that kills yeast. There's argument about whether eating it helps as it goes through digestive system and not via the vagina, but I know when I feel ill my vaginal health is effected and fact is bacteria from your anus will linger round your vagina - unpleasant, but they are the facts - so better it be healthy bacteria! You may prefer to take acidophilus tablets.

      Another edible solution is drinking either cranberry or blueberry juice (or taking cranberry tablets), these help by effecting the pH of your urine - the theory here is that as the urine passes over your vulva it may be of some help in fighting off the yeast beasties, or at least ease some discomfort.

      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt is best applied directly to your genitals, you can plaster it onto your vulva before bed, you can fill a syringe to insert into your vagina, or personally I recommend freezing in ice cube trays as an easy way to insert and cooling too. Do this overnight, wear a CLOTH pad or old underwear to bed then wash with water in the morning - commercial pads are a major cause of such infections so they're a no-no, and obviously anything chemical near your vagina like soap is a no-no.

      Garlic - not great smelling, but works well as it's a natural anti-fungal, you do literally take a garlic clove, peel and insert. Be careful not to score the clove as it may sting, and you may want to tie some clean thread around it so it's easier to remove.

      Tea tree oil - you can insert a few drops into your vagina and around your vulva, but to some women this is too uncomfortable, so instead try having a jug near the toilet to fill with water and add a few drops then wash it over your genitals when you go to the toilet...no reason to do it specifically then, it's just a handy time to do it. Same can be done with a mix of 1 tablespoon potassium sorbate to a cup of water, or 1 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water, or liter of water and 2 tablespoons of white or cidar vinegar, or Juice of half a lemon, or 1 teaspoon vitamin C.

      Gentian violet - this stuff is cool, it turns your snatch purple which is sort of freaky, it's a very old natural anti-fungal, you plaster it onto your genitals and that's that...well, you have to wear old underwear and use old sheets when you sleep as it will stain anything it comes into contact with. Use it once or twice a day for a few days.

      Another old one is Boric Acid - yes it sounds scary, but it's safe, you just load up about 600 mg into a couple of gel capsules then insert them into your vagina where your body heat will desolve the capsules and the boric acid will kill off the yeast.

  22. QUESTION:
    Is lactobacillus pills bad for pregnant woman with yeast infections who can't go to the doctor?
    I bought this nature's secret probiotic pill which has good bacteria that kills the bad bacteria that yeast infections give you. It says for pregnant people not to take it, but if you really need something for this problem, should you take it? What other ways can you naturally get rid of a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      I wouldn't recommend taking it til checking with a doctor to see what they say. I would recommend checking with the city health department to see if they offer a free women's health clinic that can evaluate this further for you.

  26. QUESTION:
    yeast infection & men, giving it to my boyfriend?
    ok so I've had a yeast infection for a while now. I tried to treat it with monistat 1 then monistat 7. the symptoms went away so I figured the infection was gone. My boyfriend & I had sex about 2 weeks ago but not since then (we usually live about 2 hours apart so we don't see each other very often) My doctor prescribed me diflucan to finally cure my yeast infection. My question is, how long after taking the diflucan should I wait to have sex again? I want to be finally rid of this stupid yeast infection so I don't want to risk giving it to him then reinfecting myself or irritating my vagina anymore with sex. So how long should I wait after taking the diflucan pill before it's safe to have sex? and also, if I had given the yeast infection to my boyfriend 2 weeks ago, would he still have it now or would his body have gotten rid of it naturally by now? I really want to be done with this infection once and for all!

    • ANSWER:
      1. Diflucan (I'm assuming you got the standard single dose here, right?) begins to clear the infection right away, but it can take several days to get rid of it all. I'd give it a week before resuming sex, personally, just to let yourself heal up.

      2. The thing with yeast infections in males is that they can get them (although not as easily as you can) but they often don't have any symptoms. If you had infected your bf two weeks ago, yes, he could still have it. It's not a guarantee that he'd give it to back you or anything, but it's certainly possible if you are prone to yeast overgrowth issues.

    Ok i don't know if I have one but it's been burning and itching lately also I've noticed i've been masturbating more lately could that be a cause? what is an yeast infection? How do I get rid of it? Can it be cured naturally? Please help i'm worried! Oh does that vagisil screening kit work please serious answers only!

    • ANSWER:
      It's an itchy feeling you might hardly notice at first. Maybe,you muse, it's just that your jeans are too tight. Actually,tight jeans may have something to do with it. But if the itch keeps getting itchier, even when your jeans have been off for awhile, then there's something else involved.

      That something else could very well be a fungus whose technical name is Candida, and which causes what is often called a "yeast" infection. Such infections are most common in teenage girls and women aged 16 to 35, although they can occur in girls as young as 10 or 11 and in older women (and less often, in men and boys as well). You do not have to be sexually active to get a yeast infection.

      The Food and Drug Administration now allows medicines that used to be prescription-only to be sold without a prescription to treat vaginal yeast infections that keep coming back. But before you run out and buy one, if you've never been treated for a yeast infection you should see a doctor. Your doctor may advise you to use one of the over-the-counter(OTC) products or may prescribe a drug called Diflucan (fluconazole).The FDA recently approved the drug for clearing up yeast infections with just one dose.

      Though itchiness is a main symptom of yeast infections, if you've never had one before, it's hard to be sure just what's causing your discomfort. After a doctor makes a diagnosis of vaginal yeast infection, if you should have one again, you can more easily recognize the symptoms that make it different from similar problems. If you have any doubts, though, you should contact your doctor.
      Other symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection include:

      soreness
      rash on outer lips of the vagina
      burning, especially during urination.
      The OTC products for vaginal yeast infections have one of four active ingredients: butoconazole nitrate (Femstat 3), clotrimazole (Gyne-Lotrimin and others), miconazole (Monistat 7 and others), and tioconazole (Vagistat). These drugs are in the same anti-fungal family and work in similar ways to break down the cell wall of the Candida organism until it dissolves. FDA approved the switch of Femstat 3 from prescription to OTC status December 1996 and a similar switch for Vagistat in February 1997. The others have been available OTC for a few years.
      When you visit the doctor the first time you have a yeast infection, you can ask which product may be best for you and discuss the advantages of the different forms the products come in: vaginal suppositories (inserts) and creams with special applicators. Remember to read the warnings on the product's labeling carefully and follow the directions.

  28. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of Bacterial Vaginosis?
    I thought I had a yeast infection but I don't. I'm pretty sure if anything is wrong down there, I have bacterial vaginosis. So, can anyone tell me how to get rid of it naturally. No doc please.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can't.

      Nothing will truly flush out or cure vaginosis without antibiotics. All natural products or home remedies only treat the symptoms, but not the disease.

      You should go to a free clinic and they can give you antibiotics.

      You should also not try to "let it run it's course." It's not that kind of disease. It will only get worse and can possibly turn into pelvic inflammatory disease, or even work it's way into your urethra and give you a UTI or kidney infection. Bone up and go to the doctor.

  30. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection after delivery?
    I had my son about 4 and a half weeks ago - naturally. Right after I deivered I got a UTI from a catheter they used due to the epidural. Thyey gave me medicine and I got rid of it. Now I have been itchy 24/7 and burning sensation. Could this be a yeast infection? Is it normal to get a yeast infection after having a baby?

    • ANSWER:
      It could be, but no, that's not usual. Usually, all infections and problems that a woman may have had during pregnancy actually get cleared up and PH levels all go back to normal. Just to be safe, I would go to the doctor and let them swab it and look at it under the microscope to determine what it is for sure.

    • ANSWER:
      i would suggest seeing the doctor . but a natural remedy for problems in that area you can use GSE. grapefruit seed extract . you mix a few drops with water and can wash it out with that.

  32. QUESTION:
    I douched with vinegar and some blackish chunks and milky stuff came out. Is that normal?
    I am trying to get rid of a yeast infection naturally. I mixed a little vinegar with water and used it as a douche. I have never douched before. Immediately the toilet was filled with a murky whitish liquid and a few black chunks floating inside. My period just ended a few days ago so the black stuff could be from then. I have also been putting in yogurt at night so that could be the white or it could be normal discharge. What do you think? Also, how often should I do this? I am trying to get the Ph of my vagina straightened out.

    • ANSWER:
      Douching is bad, don't do it it screws with the vaginas natural juices.lol But i would say that u should probably see a doctor.

    how can I get rid of foul smelling ears on my dog?
    My little dog suffers from yeast infections in her ears. Not sure if it diet, or if it's the hair inside her ears. It starts with a foul smell, and develops into an infection.

    Male yeast infection..!?
    Okay, I had yeast infections for 3 years now. I did go to plan parenthood and they gave me this creams that dont work on me. so i decided to go to a urologist to take a look, they gave me a strong cream crystal clear one that burned my penis so hard, but it helped atleast. But eventually 2 months later it came back and im having trouble getting rid of it again. i dont want to go back to the urologyst it will cost a lot again. is there any good effective way to cure this naturally?? please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Eat more yogurt. Lots! You need more good bacteria in your system.

      Good luck!

      EDIT: To the people below who claim to know a bit about natural meds, I am a healthcare professional-a cardiovascular technologist, and i have seen time and time again that natural medicine works even when prescribed medication doesnt.

      Yogurt is full of live cultures which naturally slow down the growth of yeast. This is why after you take antibiotics-which also kill good bacteria, most docs will advise you eat pro-biotic foods.

      Cranberry juice is great for digestive health. Its help directly for yeast infections is slim, but its so good for your that it can only help your system as a whole.

      Please don't listen to people who have no idea what they are talking about. Especially the one who claims to have a biology degree.

      Good luck and feel better.

  35. QUESTION:
    I might have a small case of a yeast infection?
    i've had this ever since i was little...

    i would never wipe when i was young and it would smell...
    so for 2 years now i wipe whenever i go

    the smell doesnt seep through my pants any more but theres still a white goo'y discharge on my underwear... it smells...

    i dont have any pain or itching just discharge and slight smell...

    how can i get rid of it naturally

    I dont want to talk to my step mother about it -we dont have the best relationship... basicly i dont ever talk to her-
    and I dont want to go to the docter...

    so what ways can i get rid of it naturally?
    change in diet...
    whatever i can find in the house

    • ANSWER:
      This might be the best news you can get.
      The smell you are talking about, don't worry about it. Your the only person who can smell it. Girl are so in tuned with there bodies that, they are the only person who can smell themselves like that.

      The discharge you are talking about is what is suppost to happen... that goo'y white stuff, is made by your body to help you have a baby. it feds the sperm and help them live.

      if you really don't like it, you can wear a lite day or douch.
      if you are really call to your doctor when you for a check up. you don't have to tell your step mom, but it could be a good way to get to know her.

  36. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of Bacterial Vaginosis naturally?
    I got a mirena. It's been giving me BV horrendously. I had never had it before, so I ran to the doctor. I don't have insurance so I really cant afford an 800$ bill every 3 weeks. Plus, taking antibiotics every month is horrible for my body and then I have a yeast infection to deal with.
    I'm very clean. I never washed the interior, let it do it's own thing.
    I've been using plain yogurt inserts at night and apple vinegar douches in the morning (as I was told by a professional ob/gyn that is not my doctor)
    Is there anything else I can try? I'm on a budget, so please don't write a 0 list of willy nilly crap from the natural food store. Like can I increase the amount of yogurt? Some sites said folic acid pills. I want it gone. (the mirena too, but conveniently no one will remove it and my doctors wont admit my problem comes from the mirena... even though 90+ percent of its users get BV on a regular basis)
    I don't know why I can't get it removed. I swear I'm not the only one with this issue. They keep saying, 'you have to wait until you've had it for 6 months.' 'you have to wait til 8 months' '...a year' 'the mirena isn't causing these problems, its impossible' etc. Apparently i'm the only person thats had a problem with it... except the internet is filled with stories similar to mine. Also, most of my friends got one around the same time, they're dealing with the same problem. A friend had to flip out in the ER to get it removed. I don't have the cash for that.

    • ANSWER:
      The problem seems to be that you need to get the Mirena taken care of. BV should not keep coming back after the correct dosages of antibiotics. Although, you may want to ask your doctor for the vaginal gel, rather than oral antibiotics, as this targets the problem area rather than running the antibiotics through your entire system. I'm not understanding why you cannot get your IUD removed. Is this due to your lack of insurance? There should be no reason why you cannot have this done.

  37. QUESTION:
    I received unprotected oral sex and now the tip of my penis itches a little?
    I received oral from a girl who smokes three days ago. Could it be a yeast infection/UTI? If so what are ways to naturally get rid of it. I'm also going to get an STD test at the end of this month. It doesn't hurt so much as its irritated/tingly sensation. It doesn't hurt when I pee but I noticed that there's some pee droplets that remain near the top lol...(if theres any relevance).

  38. QUESTION:
    Still haven't gotten my period?
    I was supposed to get my period 10 days ago and it still hasn't arrived. I've never had sex and I recently had a yeast infection which I got rid of naturally taking cranberry supplements. I have been somewhat stressed but not to the point were my period is 10 days late! Please help?

    • ANSWER:
      It's normal. Little, a lot or no stress at all, it's normal for your period to be late. The yeast infection may have pushed your period back a couple weeks. It happened to me before. Just wait another week, and if you still haven't got it then go see a doctor. But don't stress about it.

  39. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of the fishy smell?
    ok, im kind of embaressed to ask this, but for a few years my vagina has a fishy smell. I havent gotten my period yet, and I know it's not a yeast infection, because I haven't gotten the other symptoms for it. I heard that some women naturally smell like that, and I just want to get rid of it. I take baths, and shower normally, but really it does nothing. I'm too embarressed to tell my mom, too. So, I have no way of getting over the counter stuff. Just, is there a way to get rid of it, and is this normal?
    Not getting any discharge, not really itching or burning either. Just smells =/

    • ANSWER:
      Don't use soaps in your vagina! That can cause odors. You can use Summer's Eve on the vulva but, not inside yourself. You can also buy wipes just for odors but, read the directions.

      How do you dress? If you wear tight pants alot, that can hold in heat making it heaven for odor causing bacteria. After you shower...if you have a hand held shower head that will work best for cleaning the outside of the vulva and the inside of the vulva... pat your vulva dry and sleep in very loose fitting bottoms with no panties. Air needs to circulate.

      Never put perfumes on your vulva to cover a smell, either.

  40. QUESTION:
    what will happen if i dont treat with medicines???
    im suffering from repeat yeast infection. first time i went to see a doc and took a viganal insert. next time i went to see another doc took different medicine. but i cant seem to get rid of this yeast infection. it comes back after about 1 or two months later.
    im really tired of going to a doc and put those inserts. it just seems wrong to me to use them too often.
    is there anyway to treat it naturally?
    will just eating yoghurt and drinking water, wearing cotton panties, using unscented soap will help?
    im changing my panties at least twice a day and using unscented soap. but i dont like yoghurt. if yoghurt is really important i will eat them....

    help girlz.....

    • ANSWER:
      The first thing to do is STOP USING SOAP. You should not use soap in the vaginal area. The vagina is a self cleaning oriface and soap strips away too much of the good bacteria allowing the bad aka yeast to take over and grow. You need to treat it but if you are sure it is a yeast infection then see the doc and ask for Diflucan which is a pill and works better than the creams or inserts. Once you take it be sure you are eating enough yogurt every day with live active cultures or taking acidophillus capsules to help from getting it again. If you are sexually active then get your partner tested as he may not show symptoms but have it. Also do not use tampons while you have an active infection. Do not douche and do not take a tub bath if you have a shower. Make sure your pants are not to tight and do not sleep in your underwear. Be sure your underwear truely is 100% cotton (read the lable).

  42. QUESTION:
    Anyone with advice to help with feeling guilty because not able to breastfeed?
    I am a first time mom at 22 and have a beautiful 6 week old baby girl, MacKenzie Kay. I had quite a ehctic birth, 20 hours of labor and an hour of pushing. My baby girl was 10 lbs 5 oz and I had to receive a 4th degree episiotomy because her shoulder got stuck. I had nurses on top of me pushing my belly to get her out. When she finally came out she wasnt breathing or moving at all and was nearly purple. She finally cried and everything turned out okay except for the fact she also broke my tailbone. I had an extensive recovery but infections caused me to have to receive the epositomy AGAIN because the infection broke down the stitching. I started taking Amoxicillin and of course, it caused my body to stop protecting itself naturally and I got a yeast infection. I also noticed white spots on my nipples. Now, I wasn't breastfeeding my baby from the start, I was pumping every few hours and feeding her the milk via bottle because my whole life I have had super sensitive nipples and I would cry and cry when I tried to have her feed on the breast because it was so painful. Even pumping is excruciatingly painful for me. But I spotted producing milk when my baby was around 3 weeks old. Ever few hours I would only get about 1 oz of milk between my two breasts. I am now taking medication to get rid of both the first infection AND the yeast infection. I have not yet had the surgery to receive the episiotomy again because we have to wait until the infection is gone before my doctor decides we can go ahead with it again. But now, I am only producing around 1-1.5 oz every few DAYS. My breasts never hurt, I never leak, and there's nothing I can do about it. I feel so guilty that my baby girl isn't getting the complete and BEST nutrition she can get. I want to ONLY feed her the breastmilk but I can't give that to her and I feel horrible. I know they say breastfeeding is for some women. Some women have psychological problems with breastfeeding and others have physical problems and they say to not feel about it. But I can't help but feel like she is missing out completely on the best nutrition she can get. I want just the best for her and I just get upset everytime I start thinking about how I can't provide the best for her already so how will I be able to later on in her life. I feel guilty and I already feel like I'm failing as a mother. My body decided to fail on ME so I feel like it's my fault that she will have problems later in life because she didn't get the proper nutrition as a child.

    Like I said, I know they say not to feel guilty if it doesn't work out but I can't help but feel that way. I was wondering if anyone has gone through something similar and could help me find a way or tell me how they coped with not being able to breastfeed when they wanted to. I just want to know ways to feel better about it. I want nothing more than the best for my baby like any other mother does for theirs. And I don't want to see a therapist who doesn't know what I am going through for this problem, I just want support and advice from other mothers who have experienced similar situations. Please help.

  44. QUESTION:
    Is surgery my only option for Fibroid tumors?
    Hi I'm a 27 year old female from Los Angeles, CA and was detected that I have 3 Fibroid tumors. This year in May 2010 I got my period and was having excruciating pain that I didn't know why was it that bad. So thinkig it didn't seem normal to me I went to go see a doctor and the doctor told me I had a bladder infection and gave me meds. So from that I thought okay that was the problem then No more worries. Well surely after I didn't get my period in June but I was having early bad cramps since I didn't get my period on time I decided to go see a Gyno she had said I have Yeast infection but she seemed like it's no biggie that it's treatable but had said she wanted me to get a pelvic ultra sound with a radiologist. So since she didn't seemed worried I went to go get the test and got an unexpected suprise that I have 3 Fibroid tumors but away from my uteros. As some of you who have been in my situation know how I felt and was really dumbfounded. I even know a couple of friends who have had it and have been through really bad situations which I would want to go through. I've never had kids but would like to have some one day. I am not sure on the sizes of tumors but from what I saw in the ultrasound two might look like the size of a golf ball around there and one is a little bigger Im just guessing. I'm supposed to go see my gyno in a week. I was away in Australia for a year 2009 and had bad cramp pain but not as much as i've been having it here back home so makes me wonder I may have had it that long. I have faith that I'm hoping that all will go well. I've been told by several people that I can naturally get rid of them but I would have to be in a strict diet and that the fibroids may come back. So would this be an option if I really take care of myself?

    Ladies only who have had it a couple of questions; What was your experience when you had it? Are there certain foods that I should watch out for? What would be my best decision to get rid of these tumors and still have a chance in the future of having a baby with my current partner? How long does it take to recover? I was told there's laser surgery to get them removed. Would that be safe? I dont have insurance but might be getting medical so pray for me and wish me luck. Please share some of your similar experiences with me and maybe some way to aleviate my pain that im having right now. . . I DO NOT WANT MY UTERUS TO GET REMOVED so please any advice you can give me I would truly appreciate it. :)

    THANK YOU!!!

    • ANSWER:
      There is a minimally invasive procedure called uterine fibroid embolization (you can Google this for more info). It is done by an interventional radiologist. A small incision is made in your groin and catheters are inserted until they reach the blood vessels supplying the fibroids. Small particles are injected into these vessels to block them. This causes the fibroids to shrink as they no longer have any blood supply. Over several weeks to months the fibroids shrivel up and you will not have any more symptoms. This is a quick procedure, about an hour and does not require a hospital stay. Ask your gynecologist if you are a candidate for this procedure and if he/she can refer you to a doctor that does this. This procedure is good for young women who want to preserve their uterus for future pregnancny.
      Hope this was helpful.

  45. QUESTION:
    I am having problems with my vagina please help me !?
    I dont like talking about this much but i seriously need some help. I have only had one partner and he is soon to be my husband. we r living together and we have sex often,2 wks ago i had a yeast infection and got rid of it, this week. I noticed these bumps on the outside of my vagina they are very painful and make it hard to pee because if the pee hits it , it burns so naturally its hard to wipe too. I Also have 2 small ones on the upper part of my vagina above the clitorus. I have no idea why I got them or what they are , I thought maybe they were ulcers because I currently got sick this wk and i have a cold sore on my lip and a few ulcers on my tongue, and i got these bumps a day or so before i got sick,the ones by my clit are red and the others below on the outside of my vagina are pinkish they are rather medium like a pump or big pimple thats what it looks like but someone said maybe its a ulcer. pls help me, what do u think they are and how can I get rid of them.

    • ANSWER:
      Did he perform oral sex while you had the cold sore? Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex type 1 virus. If someone performs oral sex while they have a cold sore (or kisses someone with a cold sore and then does so) it can cause genital herpes, aka herpes simplex type 2.

      Get to your doctor and get it checked out NOW. STDs are not something to screw with, especially if you want children in the future.

    BV consistent please help?
    So I have never had bacterial vaginosis before until about a couple months ago i was on tons of antibiotics and went to my gyno thinking i had a yeast infection only to find out i had a bacteria infection..since i wasnt done with my antibiotics she told me to come back in a week after i was done with my antibiotics if i still had symptoms when i went back in a week she looked and there was no bacteria just a yeast infection so she gave me stuff for that about a week later i started to have symptoms again but of bv i have done everything that i should be doing besides going on antibiotics since i cant afford another bill but it has just been continuing...ive read many stories about women who get treated then keep having bv. Wondering if anyone has had this problem and knows how to cure it naturally or what antibiotic they took to get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:
      The only antibiotics for BV that I know of are metronidozole or metrogel or flagyl. It is very common to have a yeast infection when taking them. When you take the next dosage for your BV just have her also prescribe you some Diflucan or eat plain yogart. I heard AZO works just as good too keep your Vaginal PH balance healthy.

  49. QUESTION:
    yeast infection question?
    okay so about 3 days ago i started getting itchy down there and it was red and i had quite abit of that cottage cheese looking stuff and i didnt know what it was. i googled it and found out it was most likely a yeast infection. i dont know how it happened though, because im really hygienic. i didnt tell my mum and still havent as im scared and i dont want to go doctors about this as its so embarrassing.

    its gotten alot better though. the redness has gone down alot and its barely ever itchy and if it is, i resist the urge to itch. ive also had two slightly warm baths a day to keep 'down there' clean.

    im just wondering..

    - how long will i have it for? im going school on monday and i dont want it to drive me insane there..

    - should i tell my mum and go to the doctors? (will they have to look 'down there' because im scared of them doing that)

    - causes of yeast infections?

    - could i use antiseptic cream on it?

    - and any tips on how to get rid of it faster? like, naturally? nothing like buying creams.

    thankyou so much, im only 14 and im kinda creeped out about this :(
    no, i am not a troll :)

    • ANSWER:
      I confess I'm not sure if this is a genuine question or if you're a "troll". I'll give you the benefit of the doubt because if this is genuine question I feel your pain!

      You can buy yeast infection treatments off the shelf at the drugstore. See the first link below. This link doesn't mention Canesten which is another popular brand.

      You can also go the health food store and purchase some Lactobacillus acidophilus It comes in various forms - capsules, small bottles of yogurt like drinks etc. You can also start eating more yogurt with live bacteria culture.

      As far as dealing with the physical discomfort the over the counter creams come with an anti itch ointment or cream and you can purchase anti itch creams separately. Alternately, sluicing the area out via baths or with a douche will help the initial comfort. However if you choose to buy a one time douche or reusable douche keep in mind it must not be overused or you'll wash away the good bacteria and encourage the not so good bacteria - the one the leads to yeast infections etc to flourish.

      You can also try inserting the acidophilus directly into the vaginal tract to help get the good bacterial quickly and directly to the area.

      Yeast infections usually respond very well to treatment - and if you start treating it now, the worst of it should be over come Monday.

      I would mention it to your mom - she might know about the use of acidophilus which is also used often used after a course of anti-biotics as they upset the bodies natural chemistry and can leave people with yeast infections.

      If you go to the doctor, for them to diagnose yes they will need to conduct an internal inspection of the vaginal area.

      Causes : I used to get them running around in a wet bathing suit - though many say this is an old wives tale! Believe it or not over washing the area can encourage them - see my notes on using a douche. Too much sugar in the diet can also trigger them in some people. My cousin use to get them almost every time she had a sugar day - a day in which she mostly ate chocolate and licorice and drank a lot of pop!

      And at the risk of giving you way more information than you'd asked for, when I was still in high school,one of my best friend was Angeline Jolie/Marilyn Munro beautiful!! Boys flocked to her like bees to honey. She was also a lot of fun and smart - so with all those qualities she was very very popular. When she started dating, some of her boyfriends would start to pressure her for sex before she was really ready, and she'd get a yeast infection like clockwork! It was almost as if when she wasn't feeling strong enough to keep saying no - because she was afraid they'd get mad at her, - her body would create a psychosomatic illness to help her say no!!! It was unreal. I still think they were psychosomatic in origin as she get them one after the other and shortly after breaking up with the guy who was asking for sex before she was ready they'd clear up!

      Hope this helps

  50. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    okay so stupid me, left a pad on or a few days and then it smelled really bad, i removed it took a shower, and no more smell! but ever since then i have been a little itchy.. not constant, just every once in a while. no smell, and no unusual discharge.

    oh yea not sexually active so can't be std

    so i really don't want to go thru the hassle of telling my mom, so i was hoping that there was a natural way to cure it? also if not cured what could happen??
    would hydrocortisone cream work?? i have that...

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't have a discharge, you probably don't have a yeast infection. It's probably just an irritation. I would just use a soap that is ph balanced (you can find those at the health food store). Also, it's a little messy but plain organic yogurt might help with the discomfort if you want to go the "natural" way.

      I don't think I would use the hydrocortisone on that area of your body unless you check with your doctor first.

      If this condition doesn't go away in a week or so, I would tell your mom and maybe call a doctor.

      Good luck


Getting Rid Of A Yeast Infection During Pregnancy

Written By: admin - Feb• 23•12

I am a boy and i think i have a male yeast infection but I'm too embarrassed to see a doctor. I mean I got to tell my mom so she could take me right? Is this even a yeast infection? My symptoms are: redness in the crease, itchiness there, if it's not a yeast infection what is it? How do i get rid of it without seeing a doctor or getting ointment or medicines? Any Tips On How To Get Rid Of A Yeast Infection Without Seeing A Doctor will be appreciated

There are so many people who have yeast infection and for some reason are embarrassed to see a doctor with it. This is one the questions we got asked by a young boy who have yeast infection symptoms but did not want to see a doctor.
If you have symptoms such as: redness in the crease, itchiness, etc. - then it could be a bacterial infection, try a little neopsorin. If that doesn't work it could be yeast, for which you need a cream to apply there. And don't be embarrassed to see a doctor with it, I'm a girl and had that before between folds of skin. In men they call it jock itch. Talk to your mom about it, she is your mom of course and changed your diapers once.

Prescriptions from the doctor would usually be Canestan pessaries or creams. These creams are typically available off the shelves of any pharmacy. However, you can also make use of live plain yogurt which is soothing and help to clear a mild attack of thrush.

In addition, douching twice daily with 10 drops of tea tree oil in a pint of warm water or using tea tree cream can be very effective. Tea tree has a mild local anaesthetic effect which is very helpful for itching and soreness. Garlic douches, two crushed cloves in a pint of warm water can also bring relief. "Cervaygn" vaginal cream, a blend of acidophilus with emollients derived from vegetable oils, helps to maintain normal vaginal flora and penetrates deeply into the vaginal tissue.

If you really want to totally do away with your yeast infection and stop it from ever coming back, then I suggest that youtry out the recomedations inLida Allen's Yeast Infection No More Manual.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What can i use to get rid of a yeast infection during pregnancy?
    I really didnt wanna ask this but im out of ideas.

    • ANSWER:
      yogurt. all natural and works great..messy though, so use it when you can stay at home.

  2. QUESTION:
    yeast infection during pregnancy? how to get rid of it safely?
    i am pretty sure that i have a yeast infection... 99% sure. how do i get rid of it safely during my pregnancy..

    • ANSWER:
      My doctor said to use the 7 days monistat. It is completely safe, even if you need it more than once throughout your pregnancy. She made sure to say not to use the 1 or 3 say variety though. Being pregnant, a yeast infection is usually harder to get rid of, so don't be surprised if it doesn't go away after treatment, or if it comes back again a month later. If it doesn't go away at all, you will need something from your doctor, otherwise, just keep using the monistat.

  3. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection during pregnancy?
    I know this is TMI, but I think I have a yeast infection and I don't know what I can use to get rid of it. My aunt had a yeast infection when her daughter was born and the baby had little spots all over her body from it. Have any of you had a yeast infection during pregnancy, and if you did what did you use to get rid of it?
    I have been eating yogurt, but it's not helping fast enough.

    • ANSWER:
      I had a yeast infection. You can use monistat. You also (for a more natural approach) can put yogurt directly into your vagina with a medicine dropper (its cold, but it works). My dr prescribed me diflucan though to get rid of it fast because I'm 38 weeks along.

  4. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection during late pregnancy, Normal?
    I am going to my seventh months of pregnancy and I have been getting yeast infections about every other week or 2 weeks. Why is this? I also have a yellow/brown discharge that I think is from the yeast infection, but I’m not sure. This discharge itches and has an odor to it. Is this part of the yeast infection or, if not, what could this be? How can I get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:

  5. QUESTION:
    Persistent yeast infections during pregnancy?
    I have had a yeast infection my entire pregnancy (30 weeks) and I can't take it anymore, it is so uncomfortable and my sex life is dead and I would really like to be able to have sex before the baby's due in 10 short weeks.
    I have tried every cream and my doctor wants me to try the oral medication, but I'm very worried about taking it.
    Has anyone taken it while pregnant?
    What happened?
    Are there any other ways to get rid of a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast is common for some pregnant women. I've been dealing with it as well. My midwife has put me on the creams. She told me the pill is too risky, so I haven't went that route. Along with the creams, i wear cotton under wear, no tight fitting pants in that area down there. And I keep it as clean as possible, also try to avoid sugars at any cost. Sugar makes the yeast worst. Breads do as well. You could get that bath soak stuff, called sitz, and you sprinkle it in the bath water and litterally sit there. It helps alot too. and at night when you sleep, don't wear any panties at all, that allows that area to dry out. These are just the things I have done, that has helped me.
      best wishes, i know it sucks!!

  7. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection during pregnancy questions.
    Ok im having problems with yeast infections, i read and my doctor told me im prone to them because im pregnant. I want to know if theres a way to prevent them, ive did the cream twice now, im pretty sure this one is gone but not positive, im just worried im going to be one of those girls that suffers with yeast the whole pregnancy! Did anybody else suffer this, and how did u get rid of it and prevent it from coming back? I heard to eat yogurt, and where cotton underwear, and stay clean, which im very clean and i do wear only cotton while im pregnant. It just sucks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Hopefully I can help. The main point of advice I would share is cut sugar out of your diet, this feeds yeast infections and Candida to no end. Candida being the underlying cause of all yeast infections, you can take the link in my sources to a survey to see if you in fact suffer from Candida and how severe it is.

      As well you need to begin to start supplementing a good probiotic. I would take no less than 50 billion cell count pills. At least once per day. Renew Life has a popular and good one that fits the bill.

      There are many things you need to start doing and addressing if you are suffering from a yeast infection. To start, do the following:

      1. Wear loose clothing and undergarments, oxygen kills yeast, going commando and wearing nothing down there if possible is even better.

      2. Get some unsweetened yogurt and rub it onto a tampon, insert the tampon and do this continually until the yeast infection is gone.

      3. Cut out any and all sugar, alcohol and yeast from your diet. All three will promote the infection further.

      4. Start drinking cranberry juice, pure not from concentrate with no added sugar, I know this goes against the no sugar thing but the acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.

      5. If you can tolerate it, use a raw garlic clove and apply it to the infection, this may burn so dilute it with some olive or coconut oil, both of which can also help eliminate the yeast, especially the coconut.

      6. You can also try taking some vitamin B3, many women find their infections resolve quicker when they are taking 300mg/per day.

      7. Take a probiotic with at least 50 billion live cells per pill, this is key in redistributing good bacteria throughout your body, and effectively end the yeast infection. You must do this continually until you have eliminated your yeast infections and Candida entirely.

      8. Lastly if all else fails, begin adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath. Only fill the tub up high enough to submerge your genital area. Stay in the tub for 20-30 minutes at a time.

      Hope this helps, the yogurt is the key really, by putting good bacteria directly on the area you will eliminate it quickly. Make sure it is unsweetened and ideally keep an eye out for a variation called Kefir which has even more beneficial bacteria in it to snuff out the infection.

      When all is said and done I would suggest you research Candida and take a test to determine if you are suffering from it, as anyone who gets yeast infections has Candida, it's just a matter of how bad it is.

  8. QUESTION:
    has anyone had a yeast infection during pregnancy?
    did it hurt your baby? What did you do to get rid of it?/

    • ANSWER:
      No it doesn't hurt the baby. I had it when i was 10 weeks, and my midwife told me to use Monistat 3 or 7, but not the one day one, cuz that one is strong.

  9. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection and Pregnancy?
    I went to the doctor on monday (3 days ago) he gave me a pelvic exam and it came back positive for a yeast infection. He gave me one pill called fluconazole to get rid of it. It has been 3 days and it doesn't seem to be getting better. He told me to refill the prescription and take it again and if it still doesn't go away then come back.

    I have been reading and a lot of women's first sign of pregnancy was a yeast infection because they are so common during pregnancy. There is a possibility that i could be pregnant my period should be coming this weekend.

    Since the doctor did a pelvic exam couldn't he tell if I was pregnantt? maybe it would be too early to tell? I know he didn't do a pregnancy test.

    I have been cramping a little like my period is coming and lower back pain i can't seem to get comfortable. could this also be related to the yeast infection? I have been feeling dizzy too when i stand up.

    sorry its so long and so many questions but PLEASE HELP.

    please don't tell me to take a hpt I think it would be too early anyways (since i haven't missed my period yet.) I really want REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES. Thanks :)
    I seem to be more hungry than usual also...and not gaining much if any weight from it.
    oh and peeing more than normal

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. It looks like pregnancy.
      I did have all those symptoms in my first month, including yeast infection. But the problem is you can't treat it with usual pills during pregnancy. My doctor gave me some herbal medication, but it didn't go away till the end of my pregnancy.
      Do you feel sick in the morning? Morning sickness is another pregnancy symptom that is almost never wrong.

  10. QUESTION:
    Will the doctors let you deliver the baby vaginally if you have a yeast infection?
    So I read that many women (like myself) get many yeast infections during pregnancy and never really get rid of it. So if I still have one by the time I'm in labor will they let me deliver vaginally or no?

    • ANSWER:
      Almost 100% you can deliver with a yeast infection. It might help to talk to your doc beforehand - s/he can help you get it cleared up before you go into labor. That way you won't have to worry about it at all.

      ***For the record, antibiotics CAUSE yeast infections, they DO NOT help treat them. No wonder antibiotics are so over-prescribed in this country....

  11. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of a yeast infection while pregnant?
    i need to know if anybody has any like home remedies that would be safe during pregnancy...i can't get this thing to go away!!
    i forgot to mention that i have monistat 7 but it's not helping! the dr. said that i could use it but i can't use the applicator so how am i supposed to get the infection out if i can't put the medicine in??

    • ANSWER:
      Monistat is safe during pregnancy. Choose the five or seven day treatments; the three day might not be effective. Don't bother with weird home remedies. The Monistat will be much more effective, and untreated yeast infections can cause complications. Get yourself to the pharmacy and buy some Monistat.

  12. QUESTION:
    19 weeks pregnant with a yeast infection can I use Monistat?
    I just went to the Dr who told me I have a yeast infection. She gave me a prescription for Terazol but it is a 7 day treatment! I want to get rid of this yeast infection faster then that! I know Monistat has a 3 day treatment so can I just buy this instead? Is it safe? Has anyone else used it during pregnancy?

    • ANSWER:

  13. QUESTION:
    Insert yogurt into the vagina to get rid of a yeast infection? (4 months pregnant)?
    Some sources say just to eat it and don't insert it and some say to insert it. Has anyone ever actually tried this and what was the result? If it does work, how much should you use? Do you only need to do it once? Is it safe to do this during pregnancy?
    You can only use Monistat 7, as far as over the counter meds go, while your pregnant and i don't have any money anyway. yogurt i can buy with food stamps.

    • ANSWER:
      I've never heard of inserting it. Personally, since yoghurt is expensive and good for you, especially while you're pregnant and in need of the nutrition, I wouldn't bother inserting it. Especially with a baby on the way.

      I wouldn't put foreign stuff in there unless my practitioner told me it was okay. Besides, if you leave any behind and it spoiled, wouldn't that be kind of gross?

      Just eat it! :) It's so yummy, and it will tackle any yeast problems better than most medicine can.

  14. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection when pregnant?
    They are very common during pregnancy. But they are still so nasty. I had one really bad where they gave me some cream to use over a 7 day period of time and it worked and got rid of it for 2 weeks. Now it's back. So they gave me a pill. I just took the pill last night and it says it takes 3 to 5 days. What are other ways to keep it away? Anything I should eat, drink or do to keep it away? I don't want it to harm my baby in anyway. I am almost 37 weeks pregnant and at the end of my pregnancy and I don't want this to where she gets thrush. What can I do?
    My doctor knows... That's how I got a pill to cure it. But I am asking what are some natural things to eat and drink to keep it away?

    • ANSWER:

  15. QUESTION:
    How do I treat a yeast infection?
    I think the antibiotics made me more likely to get a yeast infection. I'm pregnant and need to get rid of this nasty infection.. Anyone have a quick and easy solution for me that is safe during pregnancy? Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Douching and such seems to always make things worse and all the creams I applied didn't help either. Here is what I did, because it would happen to me wear cotton and/or not dyed undies. No tight jeans and the main thing eat a cup or small container of yogurt once a day. Eating yogurt always helped me, sometimes I do plain *store brand* yogurt and add fruits *blueberries and strawberries* and others I eat the vanilla activia. Hope this helps.

  16. QUESTION:
    Boric Acid during Pregnancy?
    I just found out that I'm pregnant and I have been taking boric acid capsules to get rid of a yeast infection (which is now gone!). I have found out that these capsules should not be taken during pregnancy. What should I do?

    Someone please help!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      I would talk to your doctor and let him know when you were taking it. Fetal defects and death have been shown to occur in rabbits, but it is unclear if similar problems (heart) have occurred in human babies. I only could find warning, but no actual data on humans.

  17. QUESTION:
    Recurring yeast infection & Group B strep *39 weeks pregnant* NEED HELP!?
    This is my second pregnancy & I have had a zillion complications so far. Here's a breakdown:
    1) I found out I have genital warts & HPV that they cant treat because I am pregnant
    2) I have had several UTI's & yeast infections my entire pregnancy. Have been on prescription gels, creams & oral antibiotics for thrush but it comes back everytime. The Canesten seems to work the best but it returns within a week afterwards.
    3) I have been diagnosed with Group B Strep & need to have antibiotics during labour.

    I am due in a week & am in such pain from this "yeast" infection it is unbearable to move. It is so swollen & red & itches. The discharge seems to burn, especially during sex, it gets EVERYWHERE. I have to wear sanitary pads all the time. It interrupts my sleep. Anyone know how I can get rid of this or should I just wait until after the baby comes? How worried should I be that any of these diagnoses will harm the baby?
    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      if you have genital warts - you MUST get rid of them as soon as it is possible because genital warts are very contagious!!

      and if you really want to get rid of genital warts forever then you should know that you can remove genital warts by surgery, freezing, laser, acid or cream but genital warts can reappear again and again because genital warts appears when your immune system is weak!

      HPV is the virus that causes genital warts. People can be infected with HPV and never show any symptoms. Others will develop genital warts. These warts can stay the same size, grow, or go away on their own. It largely depends on the infected person's immune system. A healthy immune system means your body may be able to suppress the virus and not show symptoms.

      Even after the warts go away, the person will always remain infected with HPV. That person can spread the virus even without showing symptoms.

      so you must build up your immune system because your body can get rid of genital warts by itself if your immune system will be strong! so eat more healthy food, more vitamins and more sport activities! (No smoking, no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs, no junk food, no fast food garbage, no sugary sweet soda's. Get on a good, balanced, healthy diet including plenty of boiled or steamed vegetables.
      Drink P L E N T Y O F W A T E R , fruit juices & fat free milk. Snack on lots of RAW fruit & veggies. Get up one hour early every morning & take a BRISK 30 minute walk - then - do the same thing again in the evening after dinner. Make sure you eat a good, balanced breakfast daily. You get your energy for the day from your breakfast meal. Get 8 hours sleep each night. Flip your mattress over so it will level out to give you a good night's rest. Slack off too much coffee & tea)

      also you must use herbal treatment because you can not always live 100% healthy...!!!

      in that case Wartrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of genital warts comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! It works by stimulating your immune system to fight the HPV virus that causes the warts + it helps to prevent cervical, penile, anal and etc cancer because HPV virus in 70% cases cause cancer!!!

      and of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly).

      It worked very fast and still works for me because I do not have genital wart outbreaks anymore and my papsmear is still normal!!!

  18. QUESTION:
    Vagistat safe to use during pregnancy?
    I'm about 6 months pregnant and I've had a yeast infection since the first trimester. I really have no symptoms besides discharge, but I'd like to get rid of it. What the doctor prescribed did not work. Is Vagistat-1 safe to use? I would call my doc office, but they are closed!

    • ANSWER:
      I wouldn't use anyting until you talk to the doctor on monday. Call first thing tomorrow because i know most stuff for yeast infections can potentially harm the baby so i wouldn't use anything. better safe then sorry.

  19. QUESTION:
    Pregnant with a bacterial infection, NOT a yeast infection... blah!?
    I'm so sick of all these damn infections I've been getting during pregnancy... It's getting so irritating. So I'm 26 weeks pregnant at this point, I've always had a problem with bacterial infections and such but the first time I went in to see the dr they told me I had a yeast infection... So I used the stuff they gave me for 3 nights in a row. The "infection" kept coming back so I went to go see my Dr last night... And it's a bacterial infection now. What the hell?! They gave me the medication to insert for 5 nights now... Tell me, has anyone else had problems with any of this crap?! I'm getting so sick of it. I just want it to go away. I'm so scared taking all this is going to hurt the baby..... But I'm sure it's just better to take what they give me and get rid of it. Advice?!

    • ANSWER:
      It's much better to take the medication to clear up the infection - baby will be just fine! I actually came down with shingles when I was seven months pregnant - it was awful!! All I could take was tylenol with codeine, but it was better than being in pain and stressed out. And my daughter is a beautiful, intelligent kid (so no harm done at all). My other advice is for you to be really conscious about eating healthy foods (yogurt, blueberries, cranberry juice, protein, and a prenatal vitamin). Good luck and hang in there!

    • ANSWER:
      Consider going to a free clinic. Your young and shouldn't be self medicating especially while being pregnant. I applauded your willingness to seek out help and keep your baby.

    • ANSWER:

  22. QUESTION:
    37 weeks pregnant, why do I keep getting infections?
    About 35 weeks pregnant I got a Urinary Tract Infection... so I took antiobiotics. After I took them I developed a yeast infection. My dr. prescribed me some cream that should get rid of the infection.. but what sucks is I cant insert it (Im 1cm Dilated) so Idk if the cream is going to work. Well today I thought my water broke and I went to get seen, turns out I have a BV infection... So my question is..
    Is it normal to have all these infections at the end of the pregnancy?
    AND another question is.. The antiobiotics the dr at the hospital (NOT MY OB) gave me says its not recommened during the begining of the pregnancy.. so is it safe during the end? Its called Metronidazole...
    Anything helps.

    - Also, if I go into labor can I give birth with a BV infection w/o transmitting it to my baby?

    • ANSWER:
      they are very common during pregnancy but you need to make sure they are treated effectively because i had one during my first pregnancy and i took the medicine and it didn't get rid of it. I ended up having a kidney infection for almost a month! and my drs had no idea. i even went to the hospital and they sent me home without doing ANY tests. a week later my dr did a urine test and discovered how bad the infection. I had to stay in the hospital for a week because of the kidney infection. I could have lost my baby because the hospital didn't check aka do their job.

  23. QUESTION:
    Pregnancy Thingy???
    Ok so even tho this is my 4th pregnancy this is the first time i have gotten a yeast infection during the pregnancy, the doctor already told me he can't give me anything and i shouldn't take anything over the counter. He also said that yeast would not harm the baby and gave no suggestions on how to rid myself of it. Does anyone know of how i can ease the itching or get rid of it altogether without using creams from the drugstore?

    • ANSWER:
      why wouldnt your doc give you something is what i wanna know...go to the store and get monistat 7, it is over by the pregnancy test and condoms. there is an itching cream in the package also hope you feel better and after that, make sure you drink tons of water and a couple times a week have a glass a cranberry juice, this will help to prevent them alot

  24. QUESTION:
    Pregnancy or PMS, help?!?
    My fiance and I had intercourse for the first time right around Thanksgiving. Everything went smooth. We tried again for the following two nights, but I was experiencing a lot of pain and discomfort and I opted to stop, so we did. We haven't tried again since then, and that will be going on to be about 16 days ago. I then experienced a yeast infection, which is not uncommon for me to get after intercourse. But I read up on the internet that if an individual has reoccurring yeast infections, a trip to a physician may be necessary. So I went to the Gyno the following Friday. She prescribed me a pill that would rid me of the infection over a period of five days, because the last time I had a yeast infection, I tried one of those home treatment kits, and I experience a lot of irriatation and a very bad burning/itching sensation. Slowly but surely, the yeast infection degraded over the five days as expected. But on day four, which would have been the Monday following my appointment, (this passed Monday), I started having a light brown discharge. I thought this may have been something to do with the medication that she prescribed, but I wasn't sure. I don't believe I'd ever had something like this before. Over these passed few days, the discharge has been getting heavier and heavier, thicker and thicker. I don't exactly have "regular" periods, but they most often fall around the 21st of each month, and that's when my last one came. I googled "brown discharge" and every result I got was something saying possible pregnancy. It said the individual may have a brown discharge due to Implantation bleeding. And it says that occurs 6-12 days after conceptions, and it started on day 11 after the FIRST time we had sex. It would have been day 9 if we counted the last one, but I'm not sure that he got off.

    I'm experiencing A LOT of irritability and mood swings, which I have SOME during PMS, but nothing like what I'm having now. This is major!! I'm always tired, feeling kind of depressed, have had lower adominal pain a time or two, lower back aches (which I get during my periods as well), and I've had the munchies nearly every day. Granted all these are signs of PMS, they are signs of pregnancy too. The thing is, when I went to the Gyno she took a urine sample and gave me a pregnany test, and it came back negative. But from what I've heard, the test is only right if it says positive, because some people don't create enough hormones to prove positive on the test.

    -- Might I add, I was on my period when we had sex for the first time, and my period was cut short after we had it! I started the Monday before Thanksgiving (Thanksgiving was on a Thursday, and we did it because I wasn't bleeding at the time being), and I didn't bleed again after that. My periods are usually 8 days long, that was only 4. --

    Just wanna know what you guys might think it is!

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think it's either I personally think you have an STD which is causing a lot of pain and discomfort and you need to get it treated fast. You don't mention contraception of any kind hence the worry you may be pregnant but remember not using condoms exposes you to a hell of a lot more than just pregnancy. Good luck.

  25. QUESTION:
    Anyone ever had this happen?
    I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had a yeast infection during pregnancy? I'm 6 wks 1 day and I believe that I may have one but the doctor won't see me until Nov. 3rd. Any advice to get rid of one?
    When I made the appointment, I notified them that I thought I had one.

    • ANSWER:
      You can do over the counter yeast infection treatments. Just call your dr office and ask which one they recommend. Yeast infections are very common during pregnancy because of all the hormonal changes your body is going through causes an imbalance in the bacteria in your vaginal canal. Like I said, just call your dr and ask which brand they would recommend you use. I wouldn't trust the pharmacist because I had one give me bad advice on allergy/sinus/cold medicine yesterday and had I listened to her instead of calling my dr to double check, I would have been harming my baby. They know a lot about medicine, but sometimes not a lot about what you can take during pregnancy that is safe.

  26. QUESTION:
    Please respond if you have been through this or know anyone who has about cysts & pregnancy..serious answers ?
    I am the mother of two children and to get pregnant then was no challenge. While still married my ex-husband and I tried to get pregnant for a 3rd time but failed. I never bothered to tell my ob anything because I had no other symptoms and believed it to be stress that was not allowing me. After he and I split I met someone else and began to have intercourse again. During this time I did start to notice symptoms which I told my doctor. She had found an ovarian cyst and said it was not harmful. She prescribed birth control pills to get rid of it but I did not do it because I had no money to afford it (my health plan is not a good one). Although I had continued to have intercourse with the same guy without protection and never got pregnant as I would not miss a period. I stopped seeing him and never went back to get the cyst checked, that was more than a year a go. Recently we hooked up again. In the beginning of our renewed relationship I had my fisrt ever yeast infection which was also bacteria vaginosis. I took the medicine and was rid of it. That same week I got my period right on time. I was supposed to get my period more than a week ago and counting the days from 1st of the last it has been 35 days. I took 5 pregnancy test and 3 were done in the morning and they have come back positive. Mind you the test were from 1 generic test, 2 from EPT and 2 from 1st Response.I have read on the pamphlet that's inserted in the packages that a cyst can cause a false pregnancy test. I did my research online and found that it's true but I was not able to find if it'll cause you to miss a period when it's out of the norm. I need some guidance for the weekend until Monday comes so that I can call my doctor. My symptons are tender breasts, mild pain like cramping in my abdomen and lower back pains with no signs of blood. Has someone had this similar situation and what was the outcome?

    • ANSWER:
      This is unbelievable... i thought everything that's been wrong with me, has been in 'my head', sex drive, weight gain, fuzzy vision, mood swings...

      I honestly think this should be taken off the market. I cannot believe everyone's comments about this contraception. I have taken the pill over the years, depo provera, and thought my mood swings were bad then, but what really is the kicker, is the sex drive, hot flashes and weight gain/bloating.

  27. QUESTION:
    BV and preterm labor?
    I went to the OB today and found out I have a yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis. I'm one of the unfortunate women who has had infection after infection during this pregnancy. My doctors don't know why, and neither do I. I do everything they've said to do to prevent the infections coming back, but they keep returning. I'm so uncomfortable! And I'm worried about preterm labor due to the infections. My cervix was checked today and it is still thick and closed, but I'm still so worried about preterm labor. Has anyone had an infection which caused them to have preterm labor? And was your baby ok?

    I'm 31w5d. I'm starting medication today to get rid of the infections, and I'm hoping they'll stay away. I'm just worried about my baby.

    • ANSWER:
      Most women who develop infections do NOT go into preterm labor if they treat the infection. There's no way to predict if it will happen to you, but since you're being treated odds are in your favor that you'll be just fine. Try to relax.

  28. QUESTION:
    Pressure in bladder and pain in ovaries/vagina?
    I recently had a sinus infection and took 7 days of 100mg doxycycline / day. I was afraid of getting a yeast infection so i had some activa plain yogurt everyday. But during this antibiotics, my boyfriend visited. We had sex about 7 times in 4 days (long distance relationship), and only twice was it unprotected (because I am on birth control and I doubt I will get pregnant from such little antibiotic amounts and during this phase of my cycle - week 1). The day after he left i started to get this pain in my right ovary, like i was getting menstrual cramps, then it turned into pressure on my urethra, so i felt like i had to pee a lot (but not as much as a UTI). I tried to pee frequently and eat cranberries, drink like 2L of water a day, etc. just in case it was a UTI coming on... but 3 days later it seems to be not much better... so I don't think its a UTI. It doesn't keep me up at night and it doesn't sting to pee or any signs of a UTI really other than bladder pressure. I wonder if a yeast infection could do this, because i don't itch much, and i don't really have more discharge than usual and it doesn't smell "bread-like". But i sense perhaps the antibiotics could have startead yeast infection? Do you think this could be early signs of pregnancy? chlamydia? or something serious? I've had chlamydia once, but when I had symptoms it felt like a UTI + yeast infection + hell.... i've never felt such pressure in bladder and mild throbbing pain in my ovaries/vulva like this before. I don't have health insurance and I live in the Netherlands where medical help is not so great... I've already spent 100euro getting rid of the sinus infection - i can't afford any laboratory tests! Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      " I don't have health insurance and I live in the Netherlands where medical help is not so great"

      I beg to differ. Medican care is pretty damned good in my opinion and this is a perfect example of how something can go on to cause huge problems if you don't get it sorted. If you are living legally in the Netherlands then by law you have to have medical insurance so I don't get what you are even talking about

      A couple of facts - at least my birth control pill (and I also live in the Netherlands) is very explict in that any amount of antibotics can affect the viability of the birth control pill and so you are at risk of being pregnant so I would get a test done if I were you

      As for the pain - this is not nothing. Come on, not wanting to scare you, but leaving an infection to fester is just asking for trouble and it can wind up with you being infertile or worse. Get the medical insurance (basic package sorted and get to a doctor asap), Like you said, you have spent €100 already and that's the cost of a month's insurance - so what are you playing it.

      get it sorted girl and stop messing about. This is your health you are talking about - you cannot take risks and treat it with yoghurt and cranberries for goodness sakes.

  29. QUESTION:
    I used Monistat 1 with Doctor's approval. I'm 15 weeks pregnant...Now I'm freaking out. Help!?
    About 2 weeks ago, I got a yeast infection. So, I called my doctor's office right away to ask her if it would be safe to use Monistat during my pregnancy. I was told it was fine and safe. Because of money issues, I was not able to purchase the medicine until last night. I bought Monistat 1 (1 application + cream) and applied both inside and outside at around 10:30 pm last night as per instructions. It's currently 5: 30 am and I went to the bathroom because the vaginal opening it itching awful. While in the bathroom, I saw in my underpants a mix of "yeasty" spotting with a bit of blood - the mix looks pink and I am cramping a little...Was the medication too much? Should I have purchased Monistat 7 ( 7 applications + cream) instead? Was the infection too strong already & now the medicine is getting rid of it? Am I freaking out over nothing? I am calling my doctor's office regardless as soon as they open, but I just want a bit of peace of mind in the meantime...

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know for sure about the dose of the monistat, however, another possibility is that your cervix has enlarged blood vessels on it while pregnant. You could have bumped or scraped it while inserting the applicator, which would cause spotting. However, definately call when the doctors office opens.

  32. QUESTION:
    Is this another UTI? Ive been very bloated though.?
    I had a UTI back in december. And lately ive been having the same symptoms(strange smell to urine, feeling like i really need to pee and then not peeing much at all.) I'm guessing it was caused by sex because i have a long-distance boyfriend and i went home to see him last weekend and the symptoms showed up during that weekend.

    and so ive switched to only drinking water and cranberry juice and lots of water. in hopes to rid it myself before it gets as bad as it did last time and i had to go to the hospital and get antibiotics.

    but this time ive been super bloated. it's like whenever i have any snack, just like. a snack, im way bloated after. not necessarily full though.

    i'm also wondering if it is because ive been drinking so much water. because ive been drinking A LOT and whenever i go to pee i never pee as much as i think i should.

    I'm worried because i dont know if it's a UTI or a yeast infection. and im not home and wont be home for about 3 weeks. i dont really have a doctor here nor time to see one... Everything here(chicago) seems to need to be scheduled months in advance which doesnt really make sense to me.

    P.S.

    I dont think i'm pregnant. because im on Birth Control and im VERY good at taking it on time. and im pretty sure i had my pretty. i had spotting for a few days(side effect of the birthcontrol im taking) then a day of nothing and then a slightly heavier period for a few days and it just ended a day or two ago. I might take a pregnancy test just incase, im just worried about getting a false positive because birthcontrol messes with hormone levels and the odd smell to my urine makes me think it would mess with test results.

    • ANSWER:
      it is difficult to say for sure..
      water and cranberry juice is fine....
      bloating feeling after food indicates probably acidity / gas in stomoch.. due to improper diet..
      not enough solid food.. and cranberry juice is also acidic..
      need to improve your diet a bit and then your symptoms may get better..

    I was just wondering...32 weeks pregnant. Help?
    Can a yeast infection cause a baby to come early?
    Ive never had a yeast infection until I got pregnant and Ive had one through out my pregnancy, Ive taken antibiotics that my dr gave me but it just never goes away.
    I shower daily, The only thing I drink is water and cranberry juice. (and tons of it!)
    Nothing will get rid of it, I've tried everything I can think of!
    It doesn't itch or burn, its just the excessive super thick discharge and a very very faint odor??
    Sorry TMI.
    I'm 32 weeks pregnant and I was wondering if it can cause the baby to come early or lead to any complications during labor and delivery.

    • ANSWER:
      Just checking... your doc did give you anti-fungals rather than anti-biotics? Yeast infections (i.e. thrush) won't be touched by antibiotics.

      But on the upside it won't harm your baby. I've had thrush for the first time while I've been pregnant this time round (37 weeks with no. 2) which caused a tiny bit of spotting but the doctor and midwives have both said there's no danger to the baby or the pregnancy.

  34. QUESTION:
    ONE DAY LATE, PREGNANT?
    The last time I had unprotected sex was on july 1st. Then I had my period on July 6th. I really thought I was pregnant up until I had my period. I was having almost every possible symptom of pregnancy! I had 2 negative HPTs during that time. I know it would be too early to tell if I was pregnant from the unprotected sex I had on July 1st, but I thought I could have been pregnant from another time the month before. My period was really heavy and I had major cramps, but it only lasted a few days when it's usually heavy for a while longer than that. Then it was very light like it usually is at the end, except only saw it when I wiped. (sorry if TMI) I've felt nauseas almost every day and have had some serious migranes and headaches. I have to pee ALL the time, even more than usual yesterday. I really didn't think I could be pregnant after that period, but is it still possible that I could be from the unprotected sex I had 5 days before my period? I was supposed to start my period yesterday, but nothing..no cramps or anything..just slightly tender breasts which is normal for me before my period. I did have a little bit of cramping the other day, but I have bowel problems so I don't know what kind of cramps they were. I've had 2 yeast infections that I can't seem to get rid of..I've never had one before until this. I'm 18 yrs old and married.

  35. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection during pregnancy.
    Ok im having problems with yeast infections, i read and my doctor told me im prone to them because im pregnant. I want to know if theres a way to prevent them, ive did the cream twice now, im pretty sure this one is gone but not positive, im just worried im going to be one of those girls that suffers with yeast the whole pregnancy! Did anybody else suffer this, and how did u get rid of it and prevent it from coming back? I heard to eat yogurt, and where cotton underwear, and stay clean, which im very clean and i do wear only cotton while im pregnant. It just sucks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      I answered a similar question somewhere else, so I'll give you the same suggestions. Plus I'd highly recommend you read up on the Candida diet. The Candida diet would highly benefit you and prevent further infections. There are many things you need to start doing and addressing if you are suffering from a yeast infection. To start, do the following:

      1. Wear loose clothing and undergarments, oxygen kills yeast, going commando and wearing nothing down there if possible is even better.

      2. Get some unsweetened yogurt and rub it onto a tampon, insert the tampon and do this continually until the yeast infection is gone.

      3. Cut out any and all sugar, alcohol and yeast from your diet. All three will promote the infection further.

      4. Start drinking cranberry juice, pure not from concentrate with no added sugar, I know this goes against the no sugar thing but the acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.

      5. If you can tolerate it, use a raw garlic clove and apply it to the infection, this may burn so dilute it with some olive or coconut oil, both of which can also help eliminate the yeast, especially the coconut.

      6. You can also try taking some vitamin B3, many women find their infections resolve quicker when they are taking 300mg/per day.

      7. Take a probiotic with at least 50 billion live cells per pill, this is key in redistributing good bacteria throughout your body, and effectively end the yeast infection. You must do this continually until you have eliminated your yeast infections and Candida entirely.

      8. Lastly if all else fails, begin adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath. Only fill the tub up high enough to submerge your genital area. Stay in the tub for 20-30 minutes at a time.

      Hope this helps, the yogurt is the key really, by putting good bacteria directly on the area you will eliminate it quickly. Make sure it is unsweetened and ideally keep an eye out for a variation called Kefir which has even more beneficial bacteria in it to snuff out the infection.

      When all is said and done I would suggest you research Candida and take a test to determine if you are suffering from it, as anyone who gets yeast infections has Candida, it's just a matter of how bad it is.


Getting Rid Of A Yeast Infection

Written By: admin - Feb• 22•12

Do you always experience problems with yeast infections? There are various reasons that make having a yeast infection more probable. As soon as you start to recognize the symptoms within your own body, your main focus is to eliminate the infection as soon as possible.

Over the Counter Treatments

You no longer need to take extra time out of your demanding schedule to see your physician for a prescription to eliminate infection. Today, a lot of the same prescriptions that were once only exclusively available from the physician are on the shelf of your local drug store.

When you are out looking for items to heal your yeast infection, seek out ingredients like tioconazole, miconazole, butoconazole nitrate and clotrimazole. Popular brand labels for these medications are Vagistat, Monistat 7 and Gyne-Lotrimin. There are all exactly the same creams your physician prescribed for you in the past.
When to Look for Medical Attention

At times, a more malicious condition can imitate a yeast infection. Look for the medical advice and treatment of a physician if you experience abdominal pain, fever or a foul-scented discharge. If you are taking over the counter drugs, call your gynecologist if your symptoms have not gotten better in two to three days.

Indicators & Symptoms

How can you know when you have a bacterial vaginosis? You cannot be arranging on eliminating a disease if you do not know exactly what ails you. General symptoms can be a burning sensation throughout sexual intercourse following your partner ejaculation or while you are urinating. To defend your partner from additionally contracting an infection, use a condom despite the fact that you have been in a lasting, devoted relationship.

You might take note of your vagina's outer lips if they have an irritating rash, and you might experience a typical sensation of soreness in the region. Maybe you have been getting a thick, cheese-like white discharge. There are a lot of methods for eliminating thrush once you are absolutely sure that this is your problem.

There is a surefire natural treatment that is guaranteed to get rid of any type of yeast infection in less than 12 hours. If you have been desperately searching for an effective yeast infection cure then you need to read this important message - Click Here Now

    So, I had to start taking these pills but I had some side effects to it and they made me get yeast infection (I know it's the pills because I am a virgin) and I wanna get rid of it. I know most of you will say to go to the doctor and take some medicine for it but me and chemicals (pills, whatever) don't go well together and so that is out of the question.

    • ANSWER:

  3. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection at home?

    • ANSWER:
      The good bacteria in plain yogurt helps fight yeast and yogurt can be used both internally and externally. BUT, be sure you buy plain, unsweetened yogurt. Since sugar feeds yeast, this is a crucial point. You can also make your own, using a yogurt starter. I have done this myself and it is simple and the results are quite good. The advantage is that you can use other types of milk, such as soy or almond. While I made mine directly on the stovetop, you can also purchase a yogurt maker, if you want to take the thinking out of the process. Whether purchased or homemade, yogurt is a great thing to eat before meals because it provides "good bacteria" for your stomach to aid in digestion.
      For a topical treatment, you can also dip a tampon in plain yogurt and insert it into your vagina or simply rub some on the outside. I have found, however, that leaving it on for a prolonged period tends to have the opposite effect. It seems that once it has done its job, it is best to wipe it off or you will feel itchier due to the moisture.
      Garlic
      Garlic is a big enemy of yeast! This is one of the most effective home remedies I have found for instant relief. Inserting one garlic tab (such as Shaklee's Garlic Tabs) or a garlic clove into the vagina every few hours or as needed provides soothing relief. If you use garlic tabs, be sure the ingredients are natural and pure. I highly recommend the Shaklee garlic tabs. They are what I have always used with great results.
      Of course, garlic can be taken internally, as well. Again, the Shaklee garlic tabs work great. I have also used Kyolic garlic tabs and liquid in the past with good results. Or, if you don't mind the smell, you can press a whole garlic clove and drink it down quickly with water. I have found this to be very effective. Do it as often as necessary.
      Apple-cider vinegar (with the mother)
      Apple-cider vinegar has many health benefits (including aiding in weight loss) and can be used both internally and externally, as well. However, it is very strong, so it is not recommended that you apply it directly on the skin. It will kill the yeast, but it will burn like nothing you've ever felt! The best external application is to add about a cup of it into your bathwater and take a nice hot bath. This will feel very relaxing and soothing and will help temporarily. I don't find it as effective long-term, however, as the garlic suppositories. They provide full-day relief.
      The type of vinegar I recommend is Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, with the Mother. It is important that it have the mother, as this is more natural and less processed. Never use plain, white vinegar! This actually feeds the yeast instead of killing it.
      Apple cider vinegar can be used as a home remedy for many ailments.
      Water
      In my opinion, this is one of the world's most powerful, secret remedies for any illness! I strongly believe that if we all drank the amount of water our bodies need, we would see a great reduction in all types of sicknesses.
      Most doctors say that we should drink at least eight 8-oz. glasses of water daily, but many people need even more than that. I have found that simply drinking enough water greatly reduces my likelihood for getting a yeast infection. Because I am drinking more water, and subsequently urinating more frequently, my body is able to flush out the sugars that feed the yeast.
      Be sure to drink water that is pure and free from toxins. It is best to purchase some type of water filtration system, such as one made by Shaklee. Other brands that are good are the Brita and PUR brands. Be sure that regardless of what system you purchase, you do your research first to be sure that it will be effective in its performance.
      If you do only one thing, drink more water. It's easy, accessable, natural, and has no side effects!

  4. QUESTION:
    Is it bad to use a tampon while getting rid of a yeast infection?
    Is it a bad idea to use a tampon while getting rid of a yeast infection? I was given medicine to take orally three days ago and it has been going away. Also, my gyno noticed that I have a lot of irritation and bumps due to it being a harsh infection. Now would it be a bad idea to use tampons because I read that you could make the infection worse and push it further into the body. Would it be okay if I just used it for one day when it gets really bad?

    • ANSWER:
      To be on the safe side do not use a tampon. Inserting a tampon can and will further irritate the infection and vaginal mucosa. The longer a tampon is in for, the longer it is soaking/holding menstrual blood in the vagina. Our blood contains glucose (sugar), which can help bacteria thrive. I know it's uncomfortable, but please use a pad or pantyliner instead of a tampon. If you use a tampon the infection could worsen or not go away, and then you will need more antibiotics and have irritated genitals longer, which, let's face it, is not fun.

    Can I take something orally to get rid of a yeast infection?
    I am developing a yeast infection and was wondering if its something I can take orally and can buy at the drug store/health store to get rid of it? I have heard something about yogurt. Is it true that it will get rid/prevent yeast infections? And can you actually dip a tampon into yogurt and insert it inside to work?

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Acidophilus will help over the long term and will help to prevent future recurrences. However, if you've already got an infection then the best thing to do would be to contact your doctor and get an oral dose of Diflucan. Alternatively you can buy an OTC suppository called Monistat (there are other variations & brand names for this as well. You're looking for Miconizol).

  8. QUESTION:
    Getting rid of an yeast infection?

    But lets say i go and take the medicine for it and i don't end up having it does that do any damage.
    Also can it maybe just go away all by itself?

    • ANSWER:
      No, over the counter medication that you can get at a store won't do any damage to your body if you don't actually have an infection. Usually yeast infections won't go away on their own, they will just get worse.

You can pick up an over the counter treatment at Walgreens or such, I have heard that drinking a lot of cranberry juice can help flush it out. Another thing I heard of is inserting plain yogurt in the vagina, theory being that the yeast cultures in the yogurt will kill off the yeast in the vagina. It wasn't easy getting in there first of all, keeping it there, so I didn't have much luck. Here is an article that I ran across that might be beneficial for you. It has a lot of good advice like not wearing tight clothes, cotton underwear, and keeping a healthy diet and such. Give it a glance over and reconsider approaching your dad.

    How do i get rid of yeast infection without seeing a doctor?
    I only have bad odor and it itches like once a month. Besides if you do have yeast infection and you do go to the doctors what do they do to you

    • ANSWER:
      Garlic is so effective because it kills yeast. When inserting a clove of garlic into the vagina as a means of treatment, make sure you are peeling away the garlic skin. It works best if you do this treatment at night just like you do with other yeast infection treatments. Insert the garlic into the vagina by lying on your back on a bed with your knees drawn to your chest and spread apart. Discard the garlic in the toilet in the morning. Be aware that inserting garlic into the vagina may cause a watery discharge.

    what foods will get rid of yeast infection in mouth and tummy?
    my tummy gurgles all the time and has tons of gas bubbles all day
    i also have a whitish film on tongue
    is it yeast? if so how to get rid of it?i had all this for months now

    • ANSWER:
      I have a natural healing book this is the info in it.
      candiada albicans yeast grows more rapidly when the body has a lack of iron/magnesium., zinc or vitamin deficiency.
      theyeast than obtains these vital mineral and vitamins from foods depriving the body of those nutrients. the result is continuing symptoms of deficiency and a weakened immune system
      try to eat abundant fruit and vegetables and whole grains.

      Yeast infections usually result form a weakened immune system taking plant extracts of
      echinacea/ astragalus/ and siberian ginseng can support you immuine defenses make sure that they are of good quality

      To kill yeast once you have an infection try plant based fungicides such as grapefruit seed extract and herbal teas including "mate tea" taking supplements of acidophilus and eating yogurt with live cultures (plain unsweatened 1%) help to restore the good bacteria in your intestine

      to avoid reinfection
      wash underwear /stockings/ towels in hot water 140 F to kill yeast cells
      ware cotton underware(synthetics make yo usweat more the extra moisture provides good growing conditions )
      toothbrushes are frequent sources of transmission and reinfectons change your toothbruch every four weeks and more during infections.
      use a soap free washing lotion to prevent injury to the skin's protective acid coating/ be sure to dry your skin very thoroughly after washing.

      the reasons for all of these procations is once you have it one place you can spread to others

      NOTE:
      grapefruit seed extract is a highlyeffective antibiotic and fungicide. it kills candida yeast without harming natureal intestinal flora.
      you can get this in capsule form at some pharmacies and health foods stores

  16. QUESTION:
    what is best product to get rid of yeast infection?
    please dont answer with "well you should go to the doctor to make sure you have a yeast infection to begin with" ive searched this question and thats all i see. i just want to know what would be considered a good working yeast infection kit or whatever you call it. is monistat a good one or is there a better one?

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your pharmacy and read the boxes. The cheap off brands have the exact same ingredients as Monistat. Yes, Monistat is sort of the gold standard. So pick up a box of it, and compare it to the cheap stuff. Get one that has the same stuff and save a few bucks. If this is your first one, usually the 1-day stuff will work, but just be aware that it will still take several days to cure the symptoms. If you have had another one recently, you might rather try the 7-day.

    Does triple antibiotic cream get rid of yeast infection?
    I think I might have a yeast infection, and I was wondering if I put the triple antibiotic cream on it, if it will make it better?

    • ANSWER:
      I am no expert but I would say… No No No No No!! If you have a yeast infection go pick up a Monistat Day/Night treatment ( at Walgreens). The Monistat Day/Night comes with a small tube of ointment that you can use to calm the itching. Use ointment as needed to sooth the itching, and use the Monistat before bed you should wake up in the morning feeling better (continue to use the ointment if needed). After a few days if you still have symptoms you need to go see a doctor.

    • ANSWER:
      Antibiotics usually cause a yeast infection. Vagisil doesn't cure a yeast infection. Sounds like you've taken so many things that it's time to see a doctor to determine what is really wrong with you. You could have an allergy.

      Different types of infections:

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva

    How do you get rid of yeast infection?
    Like do you really have to go to the doctors and they give you medicine for it? Do the doctors do a test to find out what caused it? Is there anyway you can make your own home made medicine to get rid of it? Or what if painkillers got rid of it or really strong hospital antibotics?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are sure you have a yeast infection (while, thick , clumpy, ''cottage cheesy' type discharge) intense itching and burning..

      You can get over the counter medications creams that you insert or suppositories - Monistat is one, there are also generic brands, that are cheaper.
      you can get these at any supermarket or pharmacy and you do NOT need a prescription.
      However, are you sure you have a yeast infection.'
      A lot of women think they have a yeast infection but they actually have a bacterial infection which needs a doctors evaluation and a prescription medication.

      if this is your first vaginal infection, it is better to see a gynocologist to be sure you are treating the infection
      with the right medication.

(CANT AFFORD IT) please also if some one has a yeast infection and your sitting besides them can you smell them?

    • ANSWER:
      It is very important to pay attention to your body and your diet to prevent yeast infections from ever occurring. Here are some tips that can help prevent yeast infections:

      1. Avoid douching with water as this causes an imbalance of the pH in the vagina.
      2. Do not wear tight thongs and g-strings that leave no room to breath.
      3. Avoid clothing that fits tightly at the crotch.
      4. Avoid scented feminine hygiene products, harsh cleansers, perfumed soaps, deodorant tampons/sanitary pads.
      5. Change out of your wet swimsuit as soon as possible after swimming.
      6. Reduce your intake of foods which are rich with yeast such as breads, sourdough, bagels, cakes and beer.

      Hope this helps.

  23. QUESTION:
    can i buy something in the supermarket to get rid of yeast infection?
    hi im 13 and ive got a yeast infection i dont really wanna tell my mum becasue ill have to go to the doctor and like i dont like getting naked

    i havent had sex befor

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. There are several different off the counter medications that can help the symptoms of yeast infection. However acidophilus is the natural way to heal your body and help against yeast infection though, that's what I have used. There are capsules or it can be taken in a liquid, which both are available at most grocery stores. Yogurt has acidophilus in it as well, but try to get the plain yogurt in the natural foods section if possible, not one with sugar in it. It can be used externally too to help with the itching and pain. It does work. Most importantly, avoid breads and sugar for a while. Yeast feeds off of these and makes it worse.

  24. QUESTION:
    Home remedies on getting rid of Yeast Infection.?
    I'm 15 not a virgin but last time I did it was just about a month ago.
    About two days ago its been hurting to pee and it still does. So my mom called the doctor and the doctor said I have UTI . But then today its been itching like crazy I'm going crazy! It's been pretty dry down their as well.
    Plus I have had discharge that is big yet clear but I found out that I was just ovulating same goes to when I'm on my period. I havn't had any thing nasty like yellow-green discharge.
    I havn't told my mom about the itching yet because no one is awake.

    Also I'm not even sure if I have a yeast infection.
    Do I and if so can you please tell me some home remedies.
    And I'm going to the doctor tomorrow also .

    • ANSWER:
      With a yeast infection, you generally see discharge that is clumpy and white, like cottage cheese. There is also a distinctive smell. A UTI can cause painful itching. You might want to try over the counter meds containing pyridium like AZO or Uristat--you should not take these for more than a couple days, but they really relieve urinary tract pain quickly. They turn your pee reddish orange. Also drink lots of fluids to keep flush out your system. A heating pad on the area might help. Don't use any scented products (TP) or bath products that will further irritate the area, and wear cotton underwear. Good luck.

  26. QUESTION:
    Can't get rid of yeast infection in my dog's ears?
    I have a black lab/border collie mix, he constantly has infection in his ears, I clean them use the medicine and wash and have had them flushed twice which can get expensive. The vet said it is common in this type of dog and it could be allergy too, which I think so because he has really itchy dry skin on his back. I just don't know what to do to help him, should I change his food? I have been to two vets they both just say to give benedryl. But it doesn't really work, and I feel bad for him scratching at himself all the time.
    The ear medication I used was called Mometemax drops and also used a cream, I cant remember the name but it was in a pale green tube. Also use Oti Calm cleansing solution.

    • ANSWER:
      Ask your vet to try him on a 3 week course of Ketoconazole ( oral anti - fungal) It's expensive,but it works wonders.Also,have you tried pulling his ears back? Use a men's tube sock,cut the end off and slip it over his head ( you may have to secure it with some athletic tape) This will get the air circulating in his ears and help to kill the yeast.Feed him yogurt (plain,unsweetened) everyday,and add at least 2000 mg. of salmon oil to his food every day. Benedryl may stop the itching,but it doesn't kill the yeast.May I ask what ear medication you use?

      Hmmm...Has the vet cultured the discharge from the ears? Perhaps a different antifungal agent is needed.You may also try a rinse of 1/3 white vinegar,1/3 witch hazel and 1/3 dostilled water,in addition to the sock/headband treatment.Have you ever used Panalog? It seems to do the trick,or ,you could even try Monistat ( yes,for vaginal yeast infections.) Clean the ears with the vinegar/witch hazel solution,let dry well,and massage a little of the Monistat cream into the ear canal.It won't hurt the dog;I did a search;here are a few links for you.

    Thanx 4 reading,
    Carla
    ps. this is my first yeast infection.

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to get rid of a yeast infection is by use of antifungal. I know you said you didn't want medicine, but as you said, they are itchy and painful and all-around annoying. They make one day treatments, so you can take the treatment at night (it's a cream inserted in to the vagina) and be rid of it by morning. In my experience though, and I have heard that one and three day treatments aren't the best... and i usually opt for the seven day treatment. Also, if this is your first yeast infection, you should be diagnosed by a doctor just to make sure it's not something else.
      And... yogurt is good for preventing yeast infections, but it's not a cure. he bacteria found in yogurt help to keep the yeast levels down, which is why it prevents yeast infections.
      And do not douche with ANYTHING. Douching is REALLY bad for you as it strips the vagina of it's natural bacteria (which are essential fo keeping yeast away) and lubricants, which makes things very uncomfortable.

I drank this stuff and she told me to put vagisil on. am I putting it on right, because the instructions say to 'apply to the infected area' so I rubbed it around in there and around it like my mom said. help please!

    • ANSWER:
      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection then you must follow these tips - they worked for me:

      1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

      5) Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      7) also you should use some herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
      And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore (almost 2 years) ...

    How to get rid of a yeast infection on a budget?
    I have a yeast infection that didn't react to what the doctor prescribed... I can't afford to go back to the doctor. I also don't want to spend too much money on something over-the-counter that might not work either. Does anyone know of any easy ways of getting rid of this naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      I've heard about the yogart, I think you use the bifidus yogart, although I have never tried it. Once you are rid of the infection drink lots of fluid, about 2 litres per day, and cranberry juice is also good, one or 2 glasses per day. Really this is an area that you cannot compromise on , go back to the doc, tell him it did not work. I know you have a rather tight budget, but your health is really one area you cannot compromise on.

  36. QUESTION:
    How long should it take to get rid of my daughters yeast infection?
    My daughter is 6 months old. On Friday she went to the Dr's due to a rash that wouldn't go away and kept getting worse. He said she had a yeast infection. So he prescribed clotrimazole for it. I was just wondering if anyone knows how long it should take to get rid of the yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      It should be noticeably better within 48 hours and completely gone in about a week unless it is severe. Many yeast infections clear in 48 hours though.

      If it isn't at all better Monday morning you should change treatments, most treatments are available OTC including clotrimazole. I would just pick up an OTC with a different active ingredient (ask the pharmacist)

And if your " area " is having werid discharge and smells ( nit to sound disgusting ) bur like fishy .. U need to be in the doctors because I'd you wait for a long period of time with out curing it; u can mess yourself up.. Soo just wash normal and wash with water down there. And sleep with out pants soo your "area" can breathe ( don't worry I do that as well ) and just don't wear tight clothes.. Because that can hurt yourself by that..

      Cranberry juice is a natural way. It is loaded with antioxidants that kill the yeast. Another would be supplemental Cranberry Forte pills.

  3. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of yeast infection at home?!?!!?
    Im only 13 and a half, and i don't want to go to the doctors because its awkward :(
    So yeah, is there anything i can do at home to get rid of it
    i don't want to tell my mum cuz it will be awkward too.

    so how do you get a yeast infection ?
    and how do i stop it

    • ANSWER:
      Are you sure it's a yeast infection?

      Different types of infections:

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching
      Buy Monistat over-the-counter

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva
      See a doctor

      While it may be awkward to talk to your mom or see a doctor, it is the mature thing to do.

      Once you start puberty a white and/or clear mucous discharge is normal. The vagina is self-cleaning. This same discharge increases the closer you get to ovulation and when you are sexually aroused. Trust me, you don't ever want it to go away. You will also have your own scent - musky - and it will smell stronger to you than to others.

      You can have this normal discharge for weeks, months or even years before getting your first period. It will also continue after you get your period. You can wear a pantyliner if it bothers you. Some girls do produce more discharge than others.

      Different Types of Discharge:

      White: Thick, white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. Normal white discharge is not accompanied by itching. If itching is present, thick white discharge can indicate a yeast infection.

      Clear and stretchy: This is "fertile" mucous and means you are ovulating.

      Clear and watery: This occurs at different times of your cycle and can be particularly heavy after exercising.

      Yellow or Green: May indicate an infection, especially if thick or clumpy like cottage cheese or has a foul odor.

      Spotting Blood/Brown Discharge: May happen right after periods, and is just "cleaning out" your vagina. Old blood looks brown. This may occur when you are ovulating/mid-cycle.

  4. QUESTION:
    How can you get rid of a yeast infection at home?
    I think I have a yeast infection, but I'm not sure. All I know is that I have been having horrible itching down there for almost week. Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections aren't that easy to permanently get rid of. Many products can temporarily relieve the symptoms, but a long term treatment approach will be your best bet to completely elliminate it.

      One of the more popular and effective homeopathic solutions is yeastrol. It's very effective at treating vaginal, penile and oral yeast infections.

      What you can also do to speed your recovery is to change you diet in a way that will starve the yeast organisms (Candida).

      Things that you should remove from your diet are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour,
      alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold.

      Things to add to your diet are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice and oat brans

      Another thing to keep in mind is that both you and your partner should consider the diet change/yeastrol treatment as you can be passing the infection back and forth between you.

      Hope this helps and best of luck! :)

  6. QUESTION:
    How can i get rid of a yeast infection at home?
    okay so, i dont have chunky discharge, but i have intense itching and irritaction, from the intense inching. and i dont want to go to the doctor becasue that would be awkward, so i need a way of treating it from products at a local store. does Vagisil work? i dont know what to do...and i REALLY cant stand this feeling anymore

    • ANSWER:
      I've never heard of a "home remedy" per se that works, but you don't have to go to a doctor. There are over the counter drugs that work almost as well. If you go to a Drug store, there is a section for it. If you're not sure, ask the pharmacist. They'll let you know which ones work the best. Like I said, nothing over the counter (including Vagisil) is quite as strong as what you can get from a doctor, but they definitely do work in most cases. If you try that and it doesn't work, you may have to see a doctor. They don't just go away on their own. For the record, it's not as awkward as you think. They see people about that kind of stuff all the time.

  7. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection at home ?
    Okay , Im 14 and I've been scared to speak to my mom ! HELP

    • ANSWER:
      A girl can get a yeast infection at any time and most of us get at least one in our lifetime. You are normal. There is nothing to be embarrassed about.

      Make sure you have a yeast infection before you treat it. You could have an allergy or a bacterial infection.

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching
      Buy Monistat 7 over-the-counter

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva
      See a doctor

      If it is a yeast infection, you can try these:

      Consider going on a yeast-free diet, no sugar (as sugar feeds yeast), no alcohol - so no cakes, candy, sweets, etc.

      *Take Lots of acidophilus/probiotics or eat Unsweetened (Plain) Yogurt
      *Avoid tight jeans and other tight pants
      *Wear cotton underwear during the day, no thongs
      *Wear no underwear to bed
      *Put a tsp of apple cider vinegar in a 6-8 ounce glass of water and drink it 2-3 times a day.

      Most home remedies don't work.

  8. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of a yeast infection at home?
    I'm pretty sure I have a yeast infection and have had one for a week or so. I've got the itching, the burning when I itch, the discharge, and this weird like layer of stuff... so how do I get rid of this at home? I can't go to a doctor because we don't have insurance and I can't just buy monostat or whatever becuase for one I'm 14 and I'd have to as my mom and that would not blow over well and I don't have money to buy it either. Please help, I'm in so much pain. Thanks!
    I'd like to add that I have been taking amoxicillin for broncitus and have NOT! had sex. I don't wear a purity ring because it's pretty.

    • ANSWER:
      Since you think it would not blow over well to ask your mom to buy it, I'm guessing you don't know what the causes are and think she'll assume its because you're having unprotected sex or something. Here's a list from brown.edu of different causes:

      Antibiotic treatments
      Oral contraceptives
      Hot weather or non-ventilating clothing, which increase moisture and warmth, fostering fungal growth
      Repeated intercourse over a short period of time
      Stress
      Suppressed immune system (including HIV)
      High carbohydrate intake, especially refined sugars and alcohol
      Pregnancy
      Diabetes
      Other causes can be irritants such as soaps, powders, new detergents and other products

      So yes, ask your mom for monistat. Or, if you've taken antibiotics recently, start eating yogurt. Antibiotics cause yeast infections. Replacing the beneficial digestive system bacteria makes them go away.

  9. QUESTION:
    Help! I got yeast infection and I wanna get rid of it.?
    So, I had to start taking these pills but I had some side effects to it and they made me get yeast infection (I know it's the pills because I am a virgin) and I wanna get rid of it.

Do you know how I could get rid of it at home? From like natural products etc. that works? Please, it's so irritating and I just want it out of my body ASAP. thanks!

  11. QUESTION:
    How to cure a yeast infection at home?
    I am broke and wondering if there is anything usually carried in the home that can get rid of a yeast infection. I'm desperate

    • ANSWER:
      I've heard of hydrogen peroxide on a cotton ball, or natural plain yogurt on a tampon.

      However, use these with caution. They are home remedies and not generally recommended by medical professionals.

      You should try going to Planned Parenthood and asking if they have some Monistat/Canestan they can sell you at a lowered price, or go to your dr and explain your situation, maybe they have free samples they can give you.

      You must know someone with money...nothing will get rid of it as well as the stuff you buy from the pharmacy. Can't you borrow twenty bucks from your parents or sibling or friend? These things aren't hugely expensive.

      Hi,

      Yeast infections are so common its ridiculous and they always seem to come at the worse times.

    I have a yeast infection...how can I get rid of it at home (without going to the doctor)?
    Ok, yeah, I'm pretty sure I have a yeast infection but I am to shy and embaressed to tell my mom.

    So, is there anyway to get rid of it without going to the doctor or buying stuff from the store? I heard eating yogurt helps, is this true?

    • ANSWER:
      Ehhh. Honestly you really need to get something from the drugstore. There are things like vagisil that work really well.
      I've never heard the yogurt thing.
      I don't know about buying it though, you could go to walmart with your mom and split up for like 10 minutes, go buy the stuff and stick it in your purse and then find her later.
      That might work if you can't get yourself to the store.

    ? i went to the doc buit i only came in telling them about the uti and my mom knows but my bro fakes sick alot and i dont think she 100 percent believes me or that its big and imp or what eve...

    sorry for all the info but i nee some help and i no yogurt doesnt work becaus its bacteria not fugal and thats the kinda thing that im looking for not lik monostat and stuff... thanks soooo much!!

    • ANSWER:
      Antibiotics can cause yeast infections. Its because antibiotics kill bad bacteria but they also kill the good bacteria in your system. When the good bacteria dies, yeast grows uncontrollably, because good bacteria prevents too much yeast from growing.

      You can use an over the counter product, like monistat. They sell them at any drug store and places like wal-mart. You should also consider eating more good bacteria. Good bacteria is called pro-biotics, and can be found in yogurt and even in pill form now from the same stores that sell the yeast infection cream.

      Eating the yogurt alone may heal the infection, but your body may need the extra help from the cream. From now on, when you get sick and take antibiotics, try to eat stuff like yogurt or anything that has live cultures on the label. (even cottage cheese has it now) That will help replenish the good bacteria and prevent yeast infections.

      Good luck and feel better!

      EDIT: Yogurt does work. it doesn't matter if its bacterial or fungal. Putting good bacteria in your system helps fight infections. Its simple logic.

    is this a yeast infection, iv never had one so im not sure:/?
    So i just had a misscariage like a week and a half ago and this monday I noticed something different. iv been having alot of discharge i guess well im not really sure cause iv never really had discharge ever and I know its supose to be clearish. well anyways this is what i was guessing it was...well this monday i noticed something different with my vagina and i stuck my finger in barely and when i pulled it out there would be this white clumpy stuff all over my finger it i guess has a faint smell but its not bad kinda smells like rust like when im on my period. anyways its thursday now and I still have it. idk what it is or why its there but its kinda making me uncomfortable cause i know its there and I dont like it. iv never been top a gyno and im not planning on going to one if i really dont need to. but what is this does anyoneknow? and if it is a yeast infection then how can i have gotten it? and what are typical symptoms of one and is there anyway i can get rid of it just by being at home. cause i know that when u have a bladder infection you can drink tons and tons of cranberry juice and it gets rid of it. so what can i do if this is a yeast infection???

    ok let me say how the misscarriage happened. me and my brother were walking and he was high and he swung his backpack at my stomach cause he is dumb..and i fell to the ground in so much pain and couldnt get up for couple minutes cause it knocked the air out of me and gave me these like sharp pains like my stomach was contracting up and down like idk how to explain and when i got home i noticed i was bleeding alot just randomly and i wasnt supose to get my period for anlther week and i told my mom and she said it was probs a miscarriage but she never took me to the doctor. and im pretty sure it was one to cause i did have un

    • ANSWER:
      A yeast infection has no strong odor. The discharge is described as "cottage cheese" - white and lumpy. It is usually insanely itchy. Women always have yeast in their vaginas, but certain changes like taking an antibiotic or giving birth can change the conditions in the vagina, and let the yeast take over.

      You should go to the doctor if you have never had a yeast infection before, and if you are not sure that it is a yeast infection. The slight smell makes me wonder if it is a haemophilus infection. That has to be treated with a special antibiotic.

      If you don't want to go to the doctor, you can buy a yeast treatment for the vagina. Use it only at bedtime, as it can drip out in a strange way. Cranberry juice probably won't help. Your bladder is a neighbor of your vagina, but it's on a different street.

      If you were a natural health fan, you could douche with plain, unsweetened yogurt. It probably won't cure it, but it can prevent a new infection.

      If you still have the problem after treating it for a week, then you have to break down and go to the doctor.

  22. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of the start of a yeast infection?
    I don't have a full blown yeast infection. I am starting to get itchy and some white discharge is appearing. The last time I had a yeast infection, I douched and it somewhat helped. I have also heard of putting plain yogurt on your vagina to soothe the itching, but that never really appealed to me. Sad to say, I don't have the money to go out to the store and buy Vagisil or Monostat. Does anyone know of any ways to get rid of a yeast infection at home as soon as possible? My doctor's office is a 2 hour drive (only because that's where my health insurance is) and it's an extremly long wait to be seen. The last time I had a yeast infection, I just waited it out for two weeks and it finally went away. I have a rodeo competition this weekend, I can't have a yeast infection! Any serious answers or advice would be awesome! Thank you all so much!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey hon. Well, I don't know of alot of home rememdies that would get rid of a yeast infection, those things are usually pretty tricky to get rid of without treatment. I would recommend those monistat creams, they are really good for getting rid of yeast infections. They don't really cost too much, like ten fifteen dollars. I think you need to try to find the money and do that, cuz otherwise your just gonna have to suffer and see if it goes away on its own. My yeast infections never went away without treatment. Also, to prevent future yeast infections from coming back, trying eating a container of yogurt every day, thats really good for fighting infections and preventing them from coming back. Also, Im not sure, but I wouldn't recommend douching. I think douching can actually cause yeast infections more in women who do that. good luck to you. Hope you get rid of it.

  23. QUESTION:
    at home yeast infection care?
    i just got off some antibiotics and ssurprise suprize i got a really bad yeast infection with a horrible yeast oder! which would be the BEST way to get rid of it and fast i cant stand this

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      I have some natural yeast infection treatments you can try.

      There are many things you need to start doing and addressing if you are suffering from a yeast infection. To start, do the following:

      1. Wear loose clothing and undergarments, oxygen kills yeast, going commando and wearing nothing down there if possible is even better.

      2. Get some unsweetened yogurt and rub it onto a tampon, insert the tampon and do this continually until the yeast infection is gone.

      3. Cut out any and all sugar, alcohol and yeast from your diet. All three will promote the infection further.

      4. Start drinking cranberry juice, pure not from concentrate with no added sugar, I know this goes against the no sugar thing but the acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.

      5. If you can tolerate it, use a raw garlic clove and apply it to the infection, this may burn so dilute it with some olive or coconut oil, both of which can also help eliminate the yeast, especially the coconut.

      6. You can also try taking some vitamin B3, many women find their infections resolve quicker when they are taking 300mg/per day.

      7. Take a probiotic with at least 50 billion live cells per pill, this is key in redistributing good bacteria throughout your body, and effectively end the yeast infection. You must do this continually until you have eliminated your yeast infections and Candida entirely.

      8. Lastly if all else fails, begin adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath. Only fill the tub up high enough to submerge your genital area. Stay in the tub for 20-30 minutes at a time.

      Hope this helps, the yogurt is the key really, by putting good bacteria directly on the area you will eliminate it quickly. Make sure it is unsweetened and ideally keep an eye out for a variation called Kefir which has even more beneficial bacteria in it to snuff out the infection.

    How to treat a yeast infection at home?
    I've had a yeast infection for about a month now. The cream I got from the doctor didn't quite get rid of it. I've been doing research on it and from what I hear, many people find home remedies are the best way to actually cure the problem. However, there are a lot of different methods from different sites and I have no clue which to use.

    If you have had experience with this problem, please tell me what you think is the most effective treatment. If it makes any difference, I'm a guy. (Yes, guys can get them too)
    Please avoid giving any answers that involve "go back to your doctor." Maybe you don't see it the same way I do but I don't believe they are the ultimate ruler of how to treat medical issues.

  25. QUESTION:
    Can I get rid of a chronic recurring yeast infection if I take medicines that lower my immune system. how?
    I take medicines for rheumatoid arthritis that greatly lower my immune system. I can not get rid of a yeast infection. When I went to the dr, probably over a year ago now, he said I had a yeast infection, gave me meds, but they didn't work. I've since taken monistat a few times over the past year. Yesterday I bought an at home yeast infection testing kit by Vagisil and it indicates yeast infection. I am taking monistat yet again, and I have little hope. I am so fed up. I'd like to hear things that have personally helped you. I don't want information that is out there unless you've personally tried it and it worked! Help meeeee!!

    • ANSWER:
      I also suffer from a reoccurring yeast infection so I can completely sympathise. The below are things which I find to help as long term solutions as although medications get rid of it initially, within two weeks it comes back fighting.

      Live yoghurt- contains bacteria which kills the yeast. Dip a tampon in some and insert for a few hours and smear around the outside. I find this to work very well and is one of the oldest home remedies about.
      Studies have also shown that when yeast infections are present in the vagina they are ALWAYS present in the gut- leading to increased risk of reinfection so eat plenty as well.

      Tea-tree essential oil- works well as is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, dilute with some water to create more volume and follow the method above. I usually use this for over night or if I do not have any yoghurt left.

      The other thing to consider is your diet- yeast feeds directly off sugar so the more there is of it in your diet the more severe and likely attacks of thrush are, so cut down as much as possible.

      Dairy is also known to aggravate thrush as are mushrooms (apart from shiitake for some reason!) Personally I love these foods so can not completely cut them out; however if I feel the beginnings of an attack or in the midst of one then I will cut them out until the problem is gone. It depends on how much you like these as to what your action is- I have found though that avoiding them during an attack makes it easier to get rid of so it stands to reason that in not eating them at all you are less likely to get an attack.

      Good luck and I hope you have some success with the methods I have outlined. They work well for me and I have gone from almost constant thrush to having the occasional attack, which if I pick up on quickly can be averted or got rid of quickly.

    is this a yeast or bladder infection? how to cure at home?
    I think I have a yeast infection or bladder infection because it itches down there, and a couple of days ago I had some goopy clear when I wiped, but I do not have my period right now, and so I'm not sure if its a yeast infection or not, because there is no odor, and so is there any home remedies I can try... I cant afford to go to the doctors right now.

    I read online that you can dip a tampon into yogurt and insert it for about 1 hour and that gets rid of the bad yeast, but I do not use tampons, and so is there anything else I can do or that anyone else has done to cure this?

    Is There A Quick at-home treatment for a yeast infection?
    I was recently put on antibiotics for an infection after getting my teeth worked on. NOW I have a yeast infection! grrrr
    Anyway, looking on the internet only tells me things I can't do. Like apple cider vinegar, monestat, etc. Basically, things that cost money, and I am so broke at the moment. I can't even afford food at the moment..ok that has nothing to do with it...
    Is there ANYTHING, I can try to even just help relieve this insane itching? Just till I can get a few bucks to get rid of it?

    I want something simple to do it at home fast...
    I heard cranberry juice is good for that...
    Any suggestions?????

    • ANSWER:
      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection then you must follow these tips - they worked for me:

      1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

      5) Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      7) also you should use some herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
      And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore (almost 2 years) ...

  34. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection and/or UTI home remedies?
    I won't be able to go to my doctor for two weeks, and I can't afford to go to a clinic where I currently am, so I've been looking online for information, and this is what I've began putting myself through.

    I did the "spit test" for yeast infections (spit into water first thing in the morning, if it is white and there are web-like veins that spread out, you have a yeast infection) and that says I have a yeast infection, as does webmd and a few other sites based on my symptoms. BUT my lower back (under my ribs, kidney area) has been painful the past two evenings (and only in the evening) and my urine has been really odorous (even when its clear from all the water I'm drinking), so symptom checkers also point to UTIs. I don't have pain with urinating, any itchiness, burning, or swelling at all.

    This morning I started downing water, I ate 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt, I ate a clove of garlic, I took 1000mg of vitamin C, I'm planning on starting Monistat3 tonight, I am forcing myself to consume pure cranberry juice (it is so tart it's painful), and I made my boyfriend go to his doctor to be checked for both UTI and yeast infections and get meds for himself (I'm blaming his beer for the yeast issue).

    I do plan on visiting my doctor asap, but in the mean time, is there anything else I can add to my regimen to improve my chances of getting rid of the yeast and possibly UTI?

      Greek yogurt should be put on a tampon and inserted in to ur vagina for it to treat thrush... x

    How to get rid of a yeast infection, FAST!!?
    I think i may have a yeast infection, im 12 and i asked my mom and she sayed maybe so, because i was just sick and the doctor prescribed me antibiotics, it tingles and itches REALLY BAD down there, and it kinda burns and stings when i urinate, my mom is giving me cranberry pills but i want to get rid of it in at least 2 days because its friday and i cant take another day with it at school, it itches and i cant scratch it at school, its distracting me so much, any home remedies?
    I also have this white stuff coming out, dont want to get into detail...
    the white stuff is sort of cottage cheese form stuff... i know its gross, thats why im embarrassed about it

    • ANSWER:
      monistat.. you clearly need to see a doctor though before starting any medicine simply because of your age.

      Cranberry pills will not cure the infection because they are for urinary tract infections not yeast infections.

      Some things to help in the mean time are: leave the area uncovered and dry as best you can. I know it sounds weird. Try to wear a skirt (no stockings). or just an oversized t shirt to bed. Yeast likes warm and wet places so this will help a bit.

      If you are really desperate.. this will sound crazy but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.. if you have a blow dryer with a cool setting button... blow your area. you will feel instant itch relief. Its temporary but hey anything to stop that itch right?

    • ANSWER:
      For confirmed vaginal yeast infections, over-the-counter medications are available that are usually effective in treating them. The cure rates associated with the nonprescription drugs are about 75-90%. However, women who do not have a vaginal yeast infection account for two thirds of all yeast-infection remedies purchased in stores. By using these medications, these women may increase their likelihood of developing a yeast infection that is resistant to future treatment.

      Medications to treat vaginal yeast infections come in a variety of forms, including oral medications, vaginal suppositories, and creams. Suppositories are inserted into the vagina. Cream medications are massaged into the vagina and surrounding tissues. Most candidal infections that are treated at home with over-the-counter or prescription medications clear within a week

    Remedy for Yeast Infection in Pug face folds?
    My little pug has a yeast infection in the folds of her face and I am looking for an at home remedy to treat it. I am low on money until February and I would prefer to treat this at home.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of the yeast infection in a pugs face folds??

    PS, If it continually gets worse I will take my pet to the vet. It doesn't seem to be bothering her right now and if I can treat this without taking her to the vet I want to try it first.
    I have some anti fungal cream that is still within the expiry date that I used and came with a yeast infection kit.

    Is that ok to apply?? I also heard that yogurt might help.....but for her to eat or to apply to the folds?

    • ANSWER:
      Apple cider vinegar works really well. It may not smell that great when you first put it on but the smell goes away very quickly. The best is organic from the health food store. Most grocery store brands aren't really even vinegar any more. And its about the only thing safe enough to use around the eyes. Be sure you dry the folds out really well after cleaning them that will help also. This might hold you over till you can get to the vet.
      EDIT: Please don't use athletes foot cream around the eyes. You could damage her eye permanently.
      EDIT: If its human antifungal cream for a vaginal yeast infection no you can't use it. Even though it may be yeast in her face folds its not the same kind of yeast. You have to be very careful what you use around the eyes.

    • ANSWER:
      everybody has yeast on them it's all around us in nature it just can become an overgrowth sometimes and that is when we can get a yeast infection. I sometimes will get one if I am on antibiotics for a long period of time because they kill off the good bacteria too allowing the yeast to take over. The treatment for a yeast infection is the same for guys as it is for girls which is to purchase a cream (now tinactin is for athletes foot and is a different fungus so you want to make sure it says on the bottle that it will cure yeast infection) like canastein (it's in the womens products) go to your doctor first so they can diagnose you and they can write you up a prescription for canastein that way the pharmacist can fill you a generic container of clotimaderm which is cheaper. It takes about a week to clear up........Since your natural flora is out of balance I would recommend as well taking a supplement of acidophilus/bifidus bacteria (which is what makes up yogurt and is naturally in our guts...it'll help repopulate your gut with the good guys). if you like yogurt look for ones that have active cultures in it and eat lots......BioK in the natural food section is the best I've seen but it's expensive.

    How can I cure a yeast infection?
    I have a problem......

Is there anything I can do at home that will get rid of this? i need help, im very uncomfortable here!!
    people suggest yogurt- how much do i need to eat? and when will it start to get better?

    • ANSWER:
      i have infact had this infection and here are some ways to help it go away

      Step 1 Eat yogurt. It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. It also works when applied topically. Insert some into the vagina using a finger or plastic tampon applicator. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      Step 2 Take lactobacillus/acidophilus supplements. Use according to the directions on the bottle.

      Step 3 Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      Step 4 Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      Step 5 Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent. Peel a fresh clove, wrap it in gauze and insert it into the vagina.

      Step 6 Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      Step 7 Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      Step 8 Use an over-the-counter yeast infection remedy. Apply as directed.

  42. QUESTION:
    How can i get rid of an ongoing yeast infection problem!?
    So October of 2008 I had sex for the first time and along with sex came a yeast infection problem that has not gone away. A week after we had sex i was experiencing all the yeast infection symptoms, so irritating and uncomfortable. Saw the doctor and I got a pap test and STD tests done just in case and all was good. The doctor just gave me a pill, and as expected the symptoms went away. Well between the time of october and today january i have probably had about to infections twice a month. Usually its not severe, and it will go away the next day without antibiotics, but sometimes antibiotics are necessary. For example today, I was at the beach and it just hit me out of nowhere! I had to rush home asap, I felt horrible, but 2 hours later its all gone. I don't know what is wrong and no doctors have payed any attention to it.

    • ANSWER:
      From what I know, yeast infections don't just show up for hours then go away. They useually stay there until they are treated completely. Maybe you have something out. Definitely go tell your doctor what is happening. If it is a yeast infection, I recommend taking Monistat. I took the 1 day(I had two yest infections over a period of 6 months after I became sexually active) and it always worked for me. I liked the 1day treatment because it was just quicker and easier for me to do, in 7 days, completely cleared up. And you might want to change your diet to protect you in the long run, maybe try and eat yogurt for breakfast and cut down on the sweets.

    thanxxz<3

    • ANSWER:
      When it comes to stuff like that don't do home remedies. They don't work. Also the cultures don't cure the infection. It only regulates the PH after the fact and you eat it for it to work. Since you can't get rid of it on your own go to a doctor. Also I doubt you would have had it for 2 years straight. You would have some serious damage to your reproductive organs right now and you would have PID.

  48. QUESTION:
    Is there any home remedies to get rid of Human Parasites?
    I just received a paper on unhealthy colons. That doctors finally discovered the real cause of 90% of all diseases. It is unhealthy colons. The Natural Medicine Association have come up with a cure and to get rid of the parasites that may and are living in our colons. The program they have is so costly at the start of .95.
    I was wondering if there is anyone out there who knows a cheaper way to cleanse the human body of parasites?
    The symptoms are...
    Constipation or diarrhea, chronic yeast infections, chronic fungus on hand/toe nails or nails become brittle or lost their luster.
    Getting sick or catching colds often, weight problems or rapid weight gain, acne, skin disorders,or skin dry or pal, mood swings or depression, premenstrual syndrome more intensified, low sex drive, lack of concentration, short term memory problems ,sleeping problems, being easily prone to diseases, frequent headaches, chronic urinary tract irritation/infections, arthritic bone pains,allergies,gas,ex....
    Why don't someone just put dewormer for humans on the market? They found it simple to for animals..why not humans?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a colon detoxification program called Colonix that I have been using for the past three months. It's a three-part program, part of which focuses on the removal of intestinal parasites. That part of the program is called Paranil, and it consists of four capsules a day, followed by a large glass of water. It's a proprietary herbal blend, containing things like garlic, black walnut hulls, and tons of other things.

      Although the entire program costs .00 for a one month supply, the Paranil is sold seperately for .00 a bottle (and it's even cheaper if you buy three at a time.)

      http://www.drnatura.com

      There are lots of other herbal parasite programs out there; you might check GNC or health food/vitamin stores to compare prices. The reason I suggested Paranil is because I've taken it myself, and the website has literally hundreds of positive verifiable testimonials. It's worth a look, anyway... as I said, I've been on the whole program for three months and I'm very impressed with it.

  50. QUESTION:
    Do I have a Yeast Infection, and will Monistat 7 get rid of it?
    Two days ago I tried to have sex with my partner but it was very painful. It felt like he was stabbing me. It burned! (We don't have STD's. We've been tested and only have sex with each other. We've been in a 6 yr relationship.)

    Yesterday I woke up to my vaginal area (the opening of my vagina) feeling itchy. Not extremely but it was enough to make me notice.I asked someone at work about it. She used to be a nurse for a Gyno. She said it was a yeast infection and that I will have discharge. I didn't have any at the time. Later that day I went to the drugstore and bought a pack of Monistat 7. I figured the Monistat 1 and Monistat 3 would be too strong for me. So, I decided to take it slow and pick the 7 treatment to see what would come out of it.

    Last night I took out my mirror and laid in my bed. I did notice a very tiny amount of discharge. It was white and thick and it was seeping out of the opening of my vagina. Sort of like a thick teardrop.

    So that is:
    -Pain during intercourse
    -Odorless White thick discharge (with no foul odor.)
    -Itchiness on the vaginal opening
    -NO pain or burning during urination

    Before putting on the external itch relief cream on the outside. (Though I don't think I need it because the itchiness feels like it on the entrance of my vagina not the outside. But I used it anyway.) Later that night I used the insert tube with the internal cream.

    I didn't feel any burning or irritation after using the external cream. I didn't use a lot because I wasn't sure how I would react to it. Just a small amount on my fingertip. A few hours later I used the internal cream with the insert tube. It didn't hurt. The cream didn't bother me either. I slept fine.

    This morning I woke up and put on some of the external cream on the outside. I went to work and got home. I felt a little sore so I checked it when I was in my bathroom. It feels a little tender. And it looks really red down there.

    It's nothing painful. Just a little tender. But I don't feel burning or swelling. It feels fine. The itch is still there and I am willing to continue with the treatment. I'm guessing it's just a side affect to the creams. It does say on the package that some women will get side affects. Some worse than others. Mine is very bearable.

    I don't have money to go to a Gyno. Last time I went I had insurance and I don't anymore until next year. They charge over 90 bucks for just the visit and then they might prescribe me medicine that is even more expensive.

    So what's your opinion? Please be as detailed as I was.
    Oops I forgot to say that I did inform my partner about this and he says he feels fine. Nothing feels itchy or sore down 'there'. It's been 2 days since we 'tried' to have unprotected sex and if he feels fine then it's probably a yeast infection since it's rare to pass it during sex.
    Lol forgot to add one more detail. I was taking some antibiotics for a ingrown toenail infection about 2 weeks ago. It made my tongue swell up for a while.
    Like i said before it's really not bad at all. I feel no pain. Just itch and pain during sex and discharge with no odor.

      Yeast live in competition with bacteria. If you take medicine for a yeast infection when you have a bacterial infection, the bacterial infection will get worse. Or, if you take antibiotics, that can often trigger a yeast infection.

      If this does not start to show signs of improvement in two days, then you have a bacterial infection and need to see a doctor. I know it is expensive. Planned Parenthood might have cheaper visits for you.

      Yeast infections and bacterial infections can be spread sexually, so you should abstain until the treatment is complete or you risk your partner reinfecting you even if he feels no symptoms.

      If you use the Monistat, use it as directed. If it isn't working, that is a sign that you don't have a yeast infection, but if you're only kind of using it, then nothing is for sure.


Get Rid Of Yeast Overgrowth

Written By: admin - Feb• 21•12

Candida yeast overgrowth can cause a lot of problems for children. There can be a number of things that can cause a yeast infection in children. Antibiotics can be a major contributing factor. Antibiotics are known to stimulate the growth of Candida yeast. The yeast can grow out of control causing many problems, both mentally and physically.

When Candida yeast continues to grow out of control, a child's immune system is made weaker. It doesn't take long for the yeast to grow to a point where it can make the whole body sick. The end result of a Candida yeast infection can cause learning disabilities, allergies, obesity, depression, and hyperactivity.

Some experts believe that there is a direct link between autism and Candida yeast overgrowth. 1 out of 150 kids get autism each year. There have been a number of studies that show autistic children who have high levels of Candida yeast, there autistic symptoms are a lot worse because of their weakened immune system. This causes their body to work overtime to try to get rid of the yeast infection, this causes other parts of the body to be neglected.

To get rid of Candida yeast infection, early diagnosis is important. If left untreated, the immune system will continue to weaken while it tries to take on the infection. There are a number of things you can do about Candida yeast overgrowth in children. You can start with a change of diet.

In today's world, children are eating a lot of sugar and yeast. These are the two worst things when it comes to a yeast infection. Therefore, you will have to make sure your child eats the right foods so that they will feel better. It would be a good idea for your child to cut way back on their intake of sugar. Also, you can show your child that they can still enjoy food while being healthy at the same time.

Most of the time, children who have Candida yeast overgrowth that are properly treated will go on to live a happy healthy life. When yeast continues to grow out of control, it will change to a fungus that will attach itself to the walls of the intestine. Then the roots of the fungus will take hold and the mucosal lining of the intestine can be penetrated, causing hazardous toxins to be released into the bloodstream.

If you have a child who has symptoms of weight gain, diarrhea, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, and problems concentrating, it might be from a Candida yeast infection. Also, if your child is showing signs of autism, get them to the doctor to make sure that a yeast infection is not the underlying problem.

I have tried most products and over the counter medications, all of which seem to work, but only for a few days. After a few days of bliss, i was back to square 1, itching, discharging, being uncomfortable with my disease. Also you will feel more healthier, vibrant and energized. I have important information regarding your Candida in Children.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of CANDIDA or YEAST overgrowth in colon?
    I have severe acne for two years and I took antibiotics for six months, and I think I might have candida overgrowth that is causing toxicity in my body. Any tips on how to get rid of it is helpful thks.
    p.s. this is not a hygenical issue. this is because i took antibiotics for six months that destroyed all the good bacteria in my gut, causing an overgrowth. thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      You are right, almost always we find that antibiotics (especially taken as long as you did) causes yeast overgrowth. The easiest and quickest way to get rid of it is to take the natural supplements Morinda Supreme, Melia Supreme and Takesumi Supreme which kill the yeast, while on the anti-fungal diet, which stops feeding the yeast. Learn more at http://fibromyalgia-irritable-bowel-candida-support.com/about-candida.aspx

      People usually get rid of the overgrowth in 2-3 weeks by taking the supplements and sticking to the diet.

      Good luck!

  2. QUESTION:
    Can probiotics by themselves get rid of a yeast overgrowth?
    Just curious..
    overgrowth of yeast in the intestines

    • ANSWER:
      They can, but not quickly or efficiently.
      That's like asking if a well trained army could take over a country with sticks and bows/arrows... yes, they could, but not as well as if they had better weapons.

      Using that analogy, the Probiotics would work better to fight yeast if you had "better weapons" like Caprylic Acid, Grapefruit Seed Extract, and/or dietary adjustments to maximize the attack against the yeast and minimize the resistance. ;-) Also, using a good high potency Probiotic that is from several strains would be your best bet. Good luck and I hope I helped!

  3. QUESTION:
    how much acidophilus do I need to take to get rid of an intestinal yeast overgrowth?
    I took antibiotics for a persistant strep infection, now I have gas, bloating, sugar cravings, thrush, atheletes foot, and other skin irritations.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know, but I think this is something you should be asking your doctor. Don't trust people on here to tell you anything when it concerns your health. It's fine to see what people have to say, but not expect their advice to be right. Someone might tell you they've been through it and tell you what they did, but always remember that they're not you. Only your doctor and you can decide what is best for you. Good luck.

    Is it possible for certain brands of probiotics to cause a yeast overgrowth instead of helping get rid of it?
    I'm trying GNC's Mega Acidophilus and I'm not too sure if it's actually helping the condition or making it worse. Has anyone tried this?

    • ANSWER:
      I have tried it...and I had a similar problem..... I am not sure, but it seemed to disrupt my balance even worse! What works best for me is a combination of the oral and vaginal antibiotics.

      Have a good one!

  8. QUESTION:
    Can yeast overgrowth cause fructose intolerance?
    I have fructose intolerance which is when you can't absorb fructose a type of sugar found in fruit and vegetables. I have intestinal yeast overgrowth and was wondering if it could be messing with my intestines ability to make the enzyme needed to digest fructose. Fructose is in almost everything and I'm desperate to be a normal person again. Do you think once I get rid of this infection that maybe I'll be able to eat fructose again? Do I have any hope???

    • ANSWER:
      Its largely genetic (which oddly as it sounds, is NOT to be confused with hereditary fructose intolerance - which is a liver problem, not an intestinal issue)...

      I actually suspect that its the other way around, that the intestinal condition makes you predisposed to other opportunistic infections, yeast being one of them...

  9. QUESTION:
    I have a probelm with yeast overgrowth in my intestines does this mean I might also have intestinal worms?
    I have heard the two go together. If so what would be a good thing for me to try and get rid of them. By the way I have trouble concentrating and have brittle or very dry hair ( if this makes any difference).

    • ANSWER:
      Chiropractors will not be able to help this problem. They are like certified Drs., finding a prinicipled one can be really hard. I would agree with the probiotic. Do a paracleanse if you think you have worms. Plus possibly be on ASAP brand collodial silver.

  10. QUESTION:
    I got an intestinal yeast overgrowth. and it is hell to live with one!?

    i got rid of em while on a special diet. but that diet is a living hell. today is thanksgivingand couldn`t help but eat. and immeadiatly noticed all the symtoms above.

    how should i treat this one? since i am trying to gain weight for my sports i need to eat and can`t be on this diet for f-ing ever) should i use antifungul and what kind?

    • ANSWER:
      I have an awesome probiotic that works wonderfully. I will give you the info if you email me. I find that it works overnight but must be maintained to reestablish the intestinal flora.

  11. QUESTION:
    What can I do to get rid of possible candida overgrowth?
    I just read about candida (yeast) overgrowth in the digestive system and I think I might be suffering from it. I suffer from chronic fatigue, I am super moody, and also have a lot of muscle aches. My question is, what is the first step to take care of this? I cannot go to the doctor because I have no insurance, so I would like to take care of this on my own. What should I do first? What diet should I be on? I plan on taking probiotics once I have conquered the overgrowth, but what should I take first? What was your experience with it? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      First, know that the symptoms of candida are very similar to other conditions such as low thyroid, etc. Even though you don't have insurance I would encourage you to at least get a basic check up and blood test with your Dr. just in case its something that needs medical attention. Or at least so you have an idea of what you need to be doing and are not just stumbling around in the dark.

      Second, I suggest you get the book, "The Candida Directory and Cookbook" by Helen Gustafson, Maureen O'Shea. Or at least get it from the library. There is a TON of info in here that is easy to understand and there is a check list of symptoms that you could be suffering from. This you will use to track how you are progressing.

      Third, know that Candida is a tenacious little booger to get rid of. For many people it can take months or years to become fully well again. Its not like you take a round of pills and in a few weeks your back to yourself. I hope that is almost the case with you, but for me it was one of the hardest things I've had to do. Take heart though, the road to health is long and hard but worth it!!

      A basic candida diet is one that eliminates all "white" things from the diet. This includes rice, pasta, potatoes, sugar, etc. (Thats why I love the book because it gives you a detailed list of do's and don't's. It also lists stages to go through.. but anyway... ) You also want to eliminate fruit since it is mostly sugar just until you've turned the tide in your favor. Also no dairy as it is mucous forming and has sugar (lactose) in it. So you're mostly living off of tons of veggies (limit or exclude carrots, sweet potatoes and corn however in addition to some others,) some whole grains and fresh meat.

      There are lots of good supplements you can take to help also. You mentioned using a probiotic AFTER this has cleared up, but I would say to start using it NOW!! You need to repopulate yourself with good guys since you could be overrun with bad.

      I know that sounds like a lot, and I keep going back to the book, but this candida thing is really near and dear to my heart. I've suffered with it for over 4 years and I'm just now getting back to a state of health. Email if you have questions. Or go to a good health food store and ask for help. They can direct you in some good places.

  13. QUESTION:
    Anyone ever had intestinal yeast overgrowth??
    I was curious to see if anyone had an intestinal yeast overgrowth or infection? If so, how did you treat it, I know about probiotics and antifungals, but do they REALLY work? and how long did it take to get rid of?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, I know of several women (one of them a friend of mine) that had a problem with yeast overgrowth in her intestines. The dr gave her Nystatin to clear up the problem. They found the intestinal yeast thru doing a culture of her stool.

      As far as I know she no longer has problems with intestinal yeast issues since doing the Nystatin. And that's been several months ago that this happened.

  14. QUESTION:
    yeast overgrowth in the body?
    I have been suffering from indigestion/heartburn for years. I went to several types of doctors GI, ENT, etc, but no one can't seem to treat my problems. They gave all sort of medications including acid reducers, things to help me move my bowels more often, but nothing works. I finally went to a Naturalist doctor who told me to do a diet to eradicate yeast in my body. I stopped going because he kept taking more money and I feel I could not afford it anymore because I was paying out of pocket. I want to get rid of the problem because it not only cause digestion problems, but also bad breath. Anyone ever suffered from this problem and tell me how they got rid of it (I have been to a dentist so that's not the problem). By the way I am also pregnant.

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, I'm sorry to hear about that. Ironically, those two things (acid blockers and laxatives) may have made it worse... but I'm glad you found a Naturopath that was willing to help (although was unfortunately too expensive).

      Normally, I would recommend to go on a candida cleanse, but you generally shouldn't do that when you are pregnant or nursing. So, your best bet (and safest when pregnant) would be to stay away from sugars and baker's yeast for a while (at least until you've got the situation under control), take Caprylic Acid (found in Coconut Oil, it helps fight the yeast), and take a good probiotic complex to help fight against the yeast. You could take some Grapefruit Seed Extract to help cleanse the system a little, but I'd be careful about how much when you're pregnant to be on the safe side.
      That should help you to cleanse out the yeast within a few weeks to a few months (depending on just how bad the overgrowth is). Once it's passed and gone for a couple weeks, you could pretty easily just cut down to having just a daily probiotic (to keep the yeast down) and you should be good enough to start eating sugars and yeast again... but as with everything, I wouldn't go overboard.

      Yogurt does have some probiotics in it, but unfortunately, there aren't anywhere near enough in there when you've got a yeast overgrowth problem... you'll need a much stronger probiotic that you'll only find in a supplemental product.
      Good luck!

  15. QUESTION:
    Can a yeast allergy/intolerance cause a yeast overgrowth. Confused!?
    For years now I have had the symptoms of a yeast/candida overgrowth (depression, anxiety, itchy eyes, white tongue, fatigue, mucus etc). After discovering these symptoms I recently cut out all yeast for seven days and my symptoms disappeared within a couple of days. However, I went on holiday and binged for a week on beer, bread etc and my symptoms returned. I then cut it all out when I got back and voila my symptoms disappeared again.

    My point is that most of the research I have done on the internet states that a yeast infection will cause a yeast allergy and that a yeast allergy on its own is very rare but it also states that to rid the body of candida and seeing an improvement in symptoms will take months but I see an improvement in a day or two which makes me think I don't have an infection but an intolerance. Is this possible?Its like what came first... the chicken or the egg!? Thanks

  18. QUESTION:
    What is the difference between yeast and bacteria?
    Because Candida is a yeast inefction and yet at the same time it is said to be 'bad bacteria overgrowth'?
    So if I want to get rid of bad bacteria in my body I have to drink vinegar, but on a candida diet you cannot drink vinegar so what am I supposed to do?

    • ANSWER:
      Bacteria and yeast co-exist so that they feed off of each other, if the levels of one are high the other is low. Any time you introduce extreme ph levels this can also throw off the balance. For example if you drink lots of sugarry drinks or just generally consume alot of sugar this will cause your yeast to have more food and so it will multiply. I think in order to rid yourself you should eat yogurts with live cultures. These live cultures contain good bacteria to balance both the bad bacteria and the yeast. Best wishes

  19. QUESTION:
    Why does having a yeast infection itch so bad?
    I dont understand why the overgrowth of yeast would cause pain and itching...is it a fungus?

    Also, my mom gave me this pill for a yeast infection called "fluconazole", how long will it take to get rid of it

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately, yeast infections do itch and burn, and yes, it's a fungus.

      The mutated fungus attaches itself to your skin with its rhizoids (hooks), and it then starts feeding off of your bodies skin cells. As it start feeding it will burrow its way further into you skin in the search of fresh cells to feed on, and itching is your body's way of telling you that something doesn't belong there and that it doesn't like it at all!

    Antifungal medication and bacterial infections?
    I have a Candida (yeast) overgrowth problem after taking a course of the the zpack. I'm currently on anti fungal medication to get rid of the overgrowth but I think I may have a baterial STD at the same time. I can not be put on another round of antibiotics (given my situation) until they pinpoint what and if I do have an STD which is taking some time. Can taking antifungals make the baterial infection worse if I do in fact have one?

  21. QUESTION:
    What are the best supplements/probiotics to take, to get rid of massive Candida infection?
    I am too lazy to change my diet, so I'd like to know if there are any specific antifungals/probiotic supplements that work pretty well to destroy an intestinal yeast infection...?

    If you managed to cure a Candida/yeast infection, what products or drugs did you take? How well did they work?

    I REALLY need help on this as I am faced with a serious health problem that may or may not be Candida overgrowth, but without medical insurance, I can't get extensive testing done to figure out what condition I really have. However from my own research, it seems likely that Candida is a major component of my longterm illness, if not the whole thing.

    Can you treat Candida effectively with supplements/drugs, without making significant dietary changes?

    I'm getting all sorts of symptoms now that keep increasing, something like IBS (I feel things moving in my digestive system, and constipation is severe) and blurry vision/eye pain/bloodshot eyes, water retention, fatigue.. I need some help!

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast is controlled in the long run by correcting diet and lifesyle habits. If you don't want to take charge of your diet and change it to eliminate the fungus permanently you will continue to have issues.

      Parasites feed on fungus and fungus feeds on sugars.
      Parasites can cause all of the symptoms you are talking about. www.curezone.com has homeopathic remedies you can use to cleanse both fungus and parasites from the body.

      Changing your diet will eliminate the IBS stuff. To permanently and effectively eliminate fungus and parasites you have to change your diet.

  22. QUESTION:
    I have a Candida overgrowth, what foods/meals can I eat?
    Hi, I am aware I have a candida overgrowth inside. Which isn't pleasent to think about! I have also been diagnosed with Oral thrush, meaning further evidence to a candida overgrowth.

    I am planning on going on a candida cleanse, in order to try and get rid of this overgrowth. I know I am not allowed any sugars, including fruit, no alcohol, yeast based food/drinks or dairy products.

    Am I allowed Soya milk?
    What about rice and rice crispies?

    What I am really looking for is some suggested meals?

    Any help would be great thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I am not certified in giving this advice but this is my findings on this condition. Soy milk is fine; just check the label to ensure it does NOT contain added sugars or cornsyrup (should say 0g of sugar) and it is lactose free. You must avoid all starchy foods and processed foods including white rice, white pasta, white bread, cakes, cookies, etc. Eat lots of whole grains such as organic brown rice and whole grain breads again reading the labels to ensure sugar was not added. Eat lots of vegetables. Avoid salad dressings. Use olive oil and lemon juice. Chicken, meats, fish are fine. Avoid using soy sauce and other spices. Eating raw minced garlic and oregano oil are also powerful anti-bacterial foods. Basically avoid any and all processed foods (mostly packaged or convenient choices). They are loaded with preservatives, sugars, and other unnecessary harmful stuff. Choose whole, natural foods. Remember that even cheating once will reverse everything that you've worked hard for. By feeding the yeast sugar and alcohol, they just multiply again and you start from day one.
      G'luck!

  24. QUESTION:
    Different ways to treat PCOS, and getting pregnant and possibility's of it resulting from Candida Yeast?
    OK, I have had PCOS for at least 3 - 5 years. I am trying everything I can to get better/pregnant. I have changed my lifestyle around the ways I eat, sleep, exercise, and have sex. I have consulted with almost 10 doctors, OB-GYN's, and everything else imaginable. I have tried medications (Clomid, Metformin, etc.), Vitamins, and nothing seems to work.

    I have done hours and hours of research, and I have pretty much gone to the limits to try and get rid of my PCOS. If there are any great tips out there that have personally worked for you, I am willing to try to get rid of this. My periods are semi-irregular. I get them about every 35-45 days, and fortunately have been since November of last year, which is new for me. I did miss march, but it was weird how it worked out.

    After hours of research, I also found this:
    "Candida is a fungus that is found in the body in benign amounts, but when given the correct circumstances, grows uncontrolled throughout the body. It most commonly resides in the small intestine, but it often runs from the sinuses down to the groin.

    Candida is known for causing, or being a part of, reproductive organ problems, such as yeast infections, endometriosis, PCOS, impotence, and fertility problems. Other symptoms may be difficult to pinpoint. The most obvious is yeast infections, especially chronic yeast infections. It can also cause depression, gastrointestinal problems, allergies, and a variety of other symptoms. Candida makes a person crave sweets, grains, and cheese and makes you eat when you're not hungry and/or more than you need. It can lead someone to become overweight.

    A candida yeast overgrowth is caused by eating too many foods that feed the fungus, such as the foods mentioned above. However, most people get it from taking oral antibiotics, which end up killing all the bacteria in the body, including the good bacteria which keeps the normal levels of candida benign, allowing the fungus to grow to massive amounts."

    Source: http://www.steadyhealth.com/how_to_get_rid_of_pcos_t177577.html

    Now if this is true, this is very possible for me! I am CONSTANTLY craving sweets/chocolates, and when I first found about that I had PCOS, I had chronic yeast infections, and in about 2 years I had about 10-15 of them. And since then, I get about 1 or 2 a year.

    Is this a possibility for me? How do I get checked? What are some treatment methods (Vitamins, Home remedy's, prescriptions, etc.)? And will my PCOS go away by treating the Candida, and if so, will I need a scan again/how will I know? Can anyone else testify to this Candida Yeast issue, and what worked for you?

    Thanks for your time.

  25. QUESTION:
    AHH something is wrong with me! I can not control this!?
    I am a 5 ft 4 inch girl who weights around 130 lbs. I do not believe I am fat and I do not gain weight easily. When I think about myself I acctually think that I am in good shape. HOWEVER, I think I have a problem with food. I want to eat eat eat all the time. I can not stop thinking about it and when I do eat out with everyone I not only eat the most out of everyone but I finish before everyone too! I just eat super fast and just way too much for my size of body.

    Recenlty I found out that I might have a possible yeast infection (candida overgrowth) in my digestive tract/intestines. It makes my tongue hurt after I eat anything...

    For the past 2 weeks I went on a diet (to not only get rid of my yeast but to try to get rid of my nasty cravings) I ate just shrimp, avocado, nuts, chicken and water....
    Then I exploded at my most vulnerable time when I went out to dinner with my dad and I just ate everything!! I can not deprive myself of food and do not know what to do! ah!
    I have been on the high fiber, high protein, and LOW CARB/SUGAR diet for a while....it seems to work but I do not have energy...and I hate going to doctors...but I might have to...

    • ANSWER:
      If ive learned anything about dieting, its this: depriving yourself of the foods you love tends to backfire.

      if you tend to overeat at meals, try eating smaller more often during the day. every 4 or 5 hours is a good goal to shoot for. Of course, not all schedules permit this, but do the best you can. Eat foods that have lots of protein and fiber to keep you full (fruits, veggies, milk, chicken, eggs, etc). Best defense against ravenous hunger: breakfast! Ive read many times that people who eat breakfast tend to consume less calories over the course of the day (a LOT less, 400 calories less!).

      depriving your body of food can lead to obsession with food, which sounds like your problem. luckily, to stop obsessing, you can just eat! (just try to eat healthy, well-balanced options most of the time).

    I am worried because my obgyn can't figure out what's going on and I don't want to lose too much weight, I am already thin enough as it is...

    • ANSWER:
      Yea, usually a vaginal infection will make you lose your apitite. I had UTI once and lost about 6 lbs, but I was in pain and I refused to eat... Not sure whether I lost my apetite or not...

  28. QUESTION:
    Persistent Thrush, help!?
    I've been breastfeeding our 3rd baby girl for almost 10 months now, right before 9 months we started showing signs of thrush. I have no clue how it crept up on us in the first place. =P We got Nystatin (oral) for the baby and 4 pills of Diflucan for me, I've also been using Gentian Violet and taking Probiotic Acidophilus. Today, over a month after it started I went back to the Dr for more help. Today he prescribed more Diflucan (only 2 pills this time), Amoxicillin (10 day treatment), and Bactroban (for my nipples). I'm confused about him prescribing Amox when that generally causes yeast overgrowth, how is it supposed to get rid of it? And have heard from other moms with experience that so few pills of Diflucan won't work. Was also told that Threelac is the most effective treatment for thrush in mom but the Dr had never heard of it, he called the Pharmacist and he'd never heard of it either. Mind you this is in the very small town my mom lives (Dr I've known since a kid). I'm ready to be done with this thrush!! I guess I'll need to find another Dr if this doesn't work. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you for your answer! Neither the baby nor I have had any problem with vaginal yeast whatsoever. As a matter of fact her problem clears up with one or two doses of oral Nystatin, so apparently it's me who's keeping it around. I think I made it worse for myself by using Lanolin to keep my nipples from cracking but didn't have the chance to get anything different, that's why he prescribed the Bactroban. Here's hoping lots of Yogurt will counteract the antibiotic! I don't think I'm ready for all the garlic stuff but I will definitely keep it in mind if this doesn't work, thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Amoxicillin will definitely increase the yeast. I'm not sure why he prescribed it. Bactroban is also an anti-bacterial, generally used for impetigo. Yeast infections in her mouth, in the diaper area, and on your nipples are bad enough, but with how long you guys have had it, you both probably have a systemic case--throughout your bodies. You are going to have to be aggressive in treating it in order to get rid of it.

      My children and I have had tons of yeast infections over the years. Some have been so bad that they even had the yeast goop in their ears! Gentian Violet is beautiful, messy, and has been pretty effective for me but it doesn't seem to be working for you.

      In your case, I think the best thing you can do is use garlic. You didn't say whether or not you also have a vaginal infection, but I would even treat for that.

      For you, take a clove of garlic, poke holes in it with a fork, and insert it vaginally at bedtime. You'll taste the garlic on your breath in about 10 seconds, but that shows how powerful it is. Garlic actually has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiparasitic properties. For the baby, make her some garlic tea, but steeping a couple of cloves of garlic in very hot water. Don't boil it, because you will kill the live enzymes. You'll have to sweeten it so that she will drink it. Even though the yeast feeds on sugar, the garlic will still be strong enough to kill the yeast. She's a bit young for honey, so perhaps molasses or corn syrup.

      For such a bad case, I would even consider making some garlic oil and put it in her ears to cover all of your bases. For that, you put a couple of cloves of garlic in two ounces of olive oil. Let it sit--it will continue to get stronger. It will be good for about two weeks before it starts to get rancid. Put 3-4 drops in each ear and then use part of a cotton ball to keep the drops in.

      You both will be very potent-smelling, but I think you will find this to be the quickest and most effective way to get rid of the yeast. Do this for 3-5 days and monitor to see how things are improving. Good luck to you both!

  29. QUESTION:
    yeast infection, it wont stop itching! even with monistat, HELP.?
    im pretty sure i have a yeast infection that is on and off. every time im about to get my period it starts up the week before, but once i get my period its not there and then it just comes back slowly, and then it gets REALLY bad around this time. and i really want to get rid of it!!!! its unbearable! the monistat cream im using doesnt work that well, it still itches and burns, and im taking candex ( a yeast killer)

    im pretty sure i just have a bad candida overgrowth in my body. so itll take alot to kill, but i really need help.

    • ANSWER:
      If Monistat isn't working, it's not a yeast infection. See your doctor.

  30. QUESTION:
    natural thrush cures....?
    ok so if you've read any of my proir posts I'm dealing with thrush son had oral and I have it in my nipples I'm not sure but I believe I"m allergic to diflucan when researching side effects of this med during breastfeeding I found out that I shouldn't take it b/c I've had bad reations and I do mean BAD to monistat and vagisil in the past I haven't had yeast overgrowth problems other than this in years it feels like it is in my milk ducts VERY painful the gentian violet cleared my babies mouth well but I'm still agonizing I'm taking precautions being very hygeinc etc what else can I do to get rid of this I fear nystatin also and lotramin due to my past....ugh sorry this is so long!!!
    oh btw I'm taking acidophilus and garlic will this clear up or do I need to make yet another trip to the doctor????????????? He was not my doctor when I had the allergic reaction so he prescribed this medication......HELP
    I'm eating yogurt too am I expecting resu;ts too fast or will they come in time ?

    • ANSWER:
      They can give oral Nystatin - I'm not sure, but I don't think it has the same type of allergy production as the other traditional yeast meds. It's just like the topical they give for yeast infections in infants. It doesn't taste very nice, but you swish for 30 seconds and swallow. I think it's about a 10 day round.

      However, before I got treated (I had it on my nipples and in my mouth) and my son was already on treatment, I used a solution of white vinegar and water (1 part vinegar, 3 parts water) swished several times a day and also cleaned my nipples with it on a cottonball. It probably would have helped in the long run, but my nipples were hurting so badly that I just couldn't wait any longer.

  31. QUESTION:
    Ladies, would this make your heart melt?
    There's a girl I've known since middle school but we haven't talked in nearly 2 years because of some messed up things I said to her.

    I know at one point about 3 years ago she had more than friend feelings for me.

    She now lives across the country in California.

    I was recently diagnosed with something called candida which is a really bad yeast overgrowth in my intestines. My doctor and I suspect I got it around late 2008. The candida effects mood and behavior and this played a big part in some of the messed up things I said to her.

    I'm now in the process of getting rid of the candida and I'm starting to feel better.

    Her birthday is the 19th and I want to send her these flowers - http://www.ftd.com/the-ftd-stunning-beauty-bouquet-vase-included-prd/d12-4192

    With this message...

    Please forgive me for all the times I've hurt your feelings. I am finally doing better and am well on my way to reversing what's been wrong with me all these years. I would love to speak with you on the phone if you can find it in your heart to forgive me. Regardless I hope you enjoy these flowers and have a very happy birthday.
    By the way I messaged her on facebook about the candida but she didn't respond.

  32. QUESTION:
    Insert a clove of garlic...in the behind?
    This isn't a joke and please no one report me because I'm not talking about any kind of sexual act. Just give me a response if you know the answer...if not, please don't respond. I have heard that inserting a clove of garlic in the vagina is good for yeast infections. Since candida overgrowth actually happens in the intestines, would it do any good to insert garlic in the behind to get rid of the bacteria or fungus faster?

    • ANSWER:
      I've had good luck with the garlic clove trick--garlic is great for infections of all kinds. HOWEVER, you shouldn't insert anything into the anus, because it can get lost up there. Anyone who works in an emergency room is full of tales of lost items in the nether regions and it's just not a good idea.

  33. QUESTION:
    What grain free dog kibble should I choose to help my itching dog's coat?
    Here is what someone told me about how to treat my dog's itching problem.

    "Itching can be cause by an overgrowth of bacteria and yeast. And if she has hot spots, those are a bacterial skin infection. The best way to reduce bacteria and reduce itching is to reduce carbohydrates in the diet. Carbs are what bacteria and yeast feed on. Solid Gold does have a really good low carb formula called Barking at the Moon. The rest of the formulas are pretty high in carbs.

    As for shampoos, oatmeal is a carbohydrate. So it can actually cause bacteria to grow and spread on the skin. Oatmeal is great for dry skin but not if there is any kind of infection. Its best to go with an antimicrobial shampoo. Earthbath makes a tea tree oil and aloe one that would be great. If you want something stronger look for a 4% chlorhexidine shampoo"

    I found this very informative, so today I went and exchange my Earthbath shampoo with Oatmeal + Aloe for the Tea Tree + Aloe. It is working, last night she was itching a lot after bathing her with the Oatmeal shampoo, so I bathe her again today just to get rid of the shampoo from yesterday.. I do not bathe my dogs regularly because I know it's not good.

    Anyways, I think one of my dogs has a lot of allergies. She's always itching and her skin is sometimes red. Most likely it's hot spots..

    I'm not sure what I am doing wrong because I am feeding them Solid Gold - hund n flocken(sp).. I know it's not grain free but I thought grain isn't necessarily bad... However, the guy said it's high in carbs and that may be a reason one of my dog is itching? That is why, I am wondering about grain free products.. if it helps with allergies.. I tried contacting a vet to see if they can find out what my dog is allergic to but he hasn't contact me back yet so.. I'm waiting.

    Anyways, back to which grain free dog kibble I should get? I want a product that has high protein but low carbs.

    The following products I know of that are grain free, high protein, low carbs are,

    Solid Gold Barking at the Moon
    Blue Wilderness

    Is there anything else that can help my dog's coat + itching?

    I really wanted to switch to Orijen but I'm not sure if it's low carbs.. I've researched a lot about dog kibbles but never really understand which is better..

    I really want the food to have high content of omega 3 so it can help my dog's coat.
    That is why, I think I should go for a fish based formula..

    ALSO, I do not understand the analysis on dog food. What numbers am I suppose to know if it's good or not?

    EXAMPLE if i'm not making sense.

    On the bag, there's a spot where it says Guarantee Analysis. It has stuff like

    Protein 13%
    Fiber 8%
    Omega 6 3%
    Omega 3 1%

    These are just random numbers. Help??
    Vets do not know anything about dog food. They recommend you food that are in their office which are usually always low quality food such as science diet.

    There's always ways to treat your dog instead of taking it to a vet if the task is simple. However, I plan on taking her to a vet to find out what her allergies may be.. I already contacted my vet, he just haven't responded yet..

    I'm simply asking about high quality grain free product. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I would recommend Blue Buffalo Wilderness Salmon formula,from what you have stated above this food should work great for your dog,all 4 of my dogs unfortunately have both seasonal allergies and food allergies and this formula and brand have worked the best for us.

      I will be back later to edit my answer as i remember coming across a site awhile back that tells you what you should look for as far as the percentages,I just have to go find the site,LOL,be back soon...............................

  34. QUESTION:
    What is the best Anti-Candida Diet?
    I woke up this morning feeling like I got hit by a car. (yes, I've been hit by a car before, I know what it feels like.) I discovered in the last few days that I have a male yeast infection, and after extensive research into it, trying to determine what questions I should ask my dr, I stumbled on Candida. I've stumbled across multiple websites all over the internets that say, buy my supplement to to rid yourself of Candida. For most people that have a disposable income, (which isn't many in this recession) the cost of the product isn't so prohibitive. However, I'm on a fixed income. Fixed income is the governments way of saying that we're going to pay you less than poverty level income, and there's nothing you can do about it.
    Anyways, all of these sites have a list of Candida overgrowth symptoms, etc, and it would appear that I have all of them as they apply to males. It's difficult for me to determine if this is just all some fad or hype on the internet, because it seems the best source of information is from those people that want to sell me some obscure fix.
    I remember being capable of applying my mind to a problem and being able to work through it to the end of the problem. Over the last 2 years, my mind has become quite a foggy mess, and I find it difficult to remain on task, because I forget what I was thinking about.
    As there are many differences as to what the 'best' is, I decided to clarify what I think would be good for me as far as best.
    I need a diet that is easy to follow, and is affordable on my income. I spend between -0 a month on food. I haven't done much shopping yet for the month, but I estimate to have around remaining for the month.
    I won't buy any 'special - specific anti candida treatments'. I cannot afford to waste that money, and money back guarantees are frustrating. (odds are I'll forget anyways.)
    Since I'm often erratic in my means and methods, I intend to stock my food stores up with things that aim to be anti-candida, so no matter what I manage to grab to feed myself, will be along the lines of my end goal. (anti - candida snack foods)
    I've taken the first step toward this goal, and I have resigned to drinking my iced tea without any sugar in it. I read somewhere that I should avoid tea for an anti candida diet. I need to know if this is something I can ignore. I drink just standard tea, orange pekoe, I brew it pretty strong, 10 small bags for about 3-8 hours per 2 quarts of water. I also brew it cold. It's pretty much my last vice, other than smoking, and when I quit that, my tea will be my last vice.
    I'm sorry the detail is lengthy, I hope it is not too redundant. Thank you to all who try to help me with this in advance.
    For those of you that desire to SPAM this thread, don't. I will not tolerate answers that are totally unrelated to my question, answers that promote some silly site where you are trying to make a buck on a referral, I want a direct, informative answer related to my question. If you can't be bothered to READ the question, and the guidelines for answers, don't bother answering it.

    • ANSWER:
      You need a diet that does not promote growth of the yeast: no sugars, no vinegar, no alcohol, no yeast, no dried fruit, etc. See the full diet here: http://fibromyalgia-irritable-bowel-candida-support.com/anti-fungal-diet.aspx.

  35. QUESTION:
    What can I do to get rid of possible candida overgrowth?
    I just read about candida (yeast) overgrowth in the digestive system and I think I might be suffering from it. I suffer from chronic fatigue, I am super moody, and also have a lot of muscle aches. My question is, what is the first step to take care of this? I cannot go to the doctor because I have no insurance, so I would like to take care of this on my own. What should I do first? What diet should I be on? I plan on taking probiotics once I have conquered the overgrowth, but what should I take first? What was your experience with it? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The first thing you do is to not treat something that you do not know for sure if you have.

      While yeast overgrowth in the intestines is not unheard of, despite what many naturalist say it is not something that many people suffer from. Unless you have been on strong antibiotics then you probably do not have a problem with yeast overgrowth.

      Probiotics are the best treatment. These bacteria are your bodies way of fighting off yeast. Eating yogurt and milk with acidophilus is a good place to begin. A probiotic supplement will also help.

      Taking stuff to kill off yeast even natural stuff if you do not have a problem is a bad idea.

Applying honey on the affected area is another way to treat recurring Candidiasis naturally. The stickiness of honey can be annoying but it is just a small disadvantage compared to its benefits. Honey can help alleviate the painful symptoms of Candida infection.

Vinegar is another treatment that can work wonders on your recurring Candidiasis. Apple cider vinegar is said to be more effective. Dilute the vinegar in warm water and soak the affected area for at least 20 minutes to relieve the painful symptoms of the infection.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    I'm 14 and I thin I have a yeast infection. I really don't want to tell my parents about it to get medicine. Plus I hate putting medicines and chemicals into my body anyway. Are there any ways to get rid of it naturally without medicine?

    • ANSWER:
      if you have yeast infection then you must get rid of it as soon as it is possible!!!

      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection then you must follow these tips - they worked for me:

      1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

      5) Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      7) also you should use some herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
      And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore (almost 2 years) ...

  2. QUESTION:
    How do u get rid of yeast infections naturally & so it don't come back?
    I heard you can get rid of yeast infections naturally where it won't come back, but I don't know how.

    • ANSWER:
      Buy Candigest Plus online from the Gutdoctor. It is totally natural.
      I had thrush for four weeks and tried everything. Canestan, yoghurt, Daktarin, oral capsules, acidophillus and tea tree oil and nothing worked.
      After two days of Candigest, my thrush has gone!

  3. QUESTION:
    How do i get rid of my yeast infection naturally and without having to go to the doctor?
    It really itches and i'm using a cream to make it stop which really helps. I don't want to go to the doctor because it grosses me out but I would really like to get rid of it naturally

    • ANSWER:
      There are tons of over the counter remedies in drugstores. Just get one of those. Also, sleep without undies for several days to air it out, yeast is caused by moisture. Acidolpholus (available in health stores) is friendly bacteria and a natural treatment, but will take a LONG time to cure that way.

      Antibiotics aren't a cure for yeast, they actually cause yeast infections. A doctor would just give you an antifungal med for it anyway.

  4. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to naturally get rid of a yeast infection?
    Do I have to put crap into my body, like monistat 1, to get rid of a yeast infection, or can I use an alternative, natural, unharmful method which is safe for my body?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way is by eating yogurts that have healthy bacterias. .Sometimes the pH levels get unbalances. Water and vinegar Douche works well also. See this link that's super helpful. Good luck we all go through it.

  5. QUESTION:
    how can you naturally get rid of a yeast infection?
    My best friend thinks she has a yeast infection but she doesnt want her mom to find out that she has been having sex but and she dosnt know how to get rid of it. Plus shes very diffcult she has to have every thing nautral. This is my question though can you still have sex with a yeast infection.

    • ANSWER:
      NO you can't have sex with a yeast infection because she will give it to him and then they will just go back and forth with it. Secondly- a girl can get a yeast infection from other things besides sex. You can get a yeast infection from taking antibiotics and you can get one from just not changing your underwear, and you can get one from not eating the right kinds of food. So that shouldn't be an issue. Tell her to go buy some medicine you can get it over the counter. Or if she is really hard up on being stupid and not getting it fixed: which will eventually lead up to an std....then tell her to eat alot of yogurt: acidopholis(acid-da-fo-lus) is the ingrediant that kills yeast. She can get it in pill form at the vitamin/drug stores. PS...NO ITS NOT AN STD, BUT IF SHE IS STUPID ENOUGH TO NOT GET IT TAKEN CARE OF THEN SHE IS STUPID ENOUGH TO GET AN STD.

  6. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to get rid of yeast infection naturally?
    without any medicine?

    • ANSWER:
      Not very effectively but there are ways. Garlic is a natural antibiotic, so a garlic supplement or heavy garlic intake in your diet may help. You can also insert a garlic clove or tablet into the vagina few hours. You can dip a tampon in plain (no sugar!) yoghurt and insert it into the vagina. Add a cup of apple cider vinegar to your bath water (if you use it directly it will burn like crazy). Drink lots and lots of water. Take a probiotic culture or eat a probiotic yoghurt serving every day.
      If these aren't effective you may need to use medication.
      To avoid yeast in the future limit the times you wear thongs, wear cotton panties that breathe, eat probiotic yoghurt or take a probiotic culture daily, don't use soaps in the genital area, never douche or use feminine deodorants, and keep the genital area dry. Pads can trap moisture and irritate the vagina. Also avoid scented tampons.

  14. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection on a budget?
    I have a yeast infection that didn't react to what the doctor prescribed... I can't afford to go back to the doctor. I also don't want to spend too much money on something over-the-counter that might not work either. Does anyone know of any easy ways of getting rid of this naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      I've heard about the yogart, I think you use the bifidus yogart, although I have never tried it. Once you are rid of the infection drink lots of fluid, about 2 litres per day, and cranberry juice is also good, one or 2 glasses per day. Really this is an area that you cannot compromise on , go back to the doc, tell him it did not work. I know you have a rather tight budget, but your health is really one area you cannot compromise on.

  15. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection...naturally?

    I am not positive if i have a yeast infection. I have normal discharge for pergnancy but it has a tint of yellow and i herd that can mean a yeast infection, but i dont itch or it doesnt smell. I guess i have 2 questions, is it a yeast infection from what ihave told you and if so how do i get rid of it without meds. Im very nervouse bout taking meds while pregnant and dont want to stick anything up there during this period.
    I see everyonw is saying yogart, but i drink a yogart smoothie a day, cause i cant gain wait and im a pre-school teacher and its hard to get a great meal in.

    • ANSWER:
      yogurt is good for keeping your body's natural pH balanced which will prevent and treat a yeast infection. But from what you've described, if it's only a little bit yellowish, and it doesn't smell, itch, burn, or have a thick/chunky texture (yea, icky I know); that doesn't sound like a yeast infection. Normal discharge can be clear, milky, or slightly yellow in color.

  17. QUESTION:
    9 weeks pregnant and for 2weeks I have this yeast infection, is this Normal and how to get rid of it naturally?

    I said naturally! I dont want to take those stupid creams, especially during preg. Who cares HOW 'safe' they say they
    are!

    • ANSWER:
      It is totally normal to have a yeast infection while pregnant because the sharp changes in hormones will throw off the natural balance of yeast and bacteria in your vagina; many women will get either a yeast infection or bacterial infection while pregnant. There are several natural ways to treat a yeast infection besides the store-bought creams, but I have never tried any so I cannot offer any advice on which to try. Here is a link where you may read about them, however. Also, I suggest before you do any at-home treatment that you consult your doctor or midwife.

  18. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of my yeast infection, naturally.?
    Can some one pleaseee tell me the natural cure for yeast infections? I'm honestly going crazy, and I'm 16 and my mom's a doctor so she would just call me in a prescription if I told her that I had another one. Prescriptions work for a short time, but keep coming back and they make me crazy! My mom would say buying the book is stupid and call me in a prescription. please some one tell me the natural cure, instead of just giving me a link that gets me excited when I turn around to find out I have to buy a 60 dollar book. I really need help!

  19. QUESTION:
    yeast infection cant get rid of suggestions please?
    okay so i have had this yeast infection for a while and i can get rid of it
    i eat yoplait yogurt everyday because it has live cultures in it
    and im orally taking AZO everyday
    ive been doing this for 5 days now and it seems like it has not changed or it just became worse.

    suggestions please??? anything else i can get rid of naturally

    oh and i do you monostat cream which really helps
    thanks for your answers
    i dont have health insurance therefore cant go to a doctor & im only 17 my mom knows i have it so she told me to use AZO.
    but thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Once you get a yeast infection, the natural route usually doesn't work. You will have to get a prescription from a doctor. The doctor will usually give you one pill (taken orally), that will kill the infection within 3 days. But depending on the doctor.

      Yogurt is to give your body a head start on preventing yeast infections, not to cure it completely... and AZO not a good idea to take that everyday, simply because your body will become to dependent on it and once you stop taking AZO a yeast infection may appear...

      Mono state is ok, but its only a temporary relief. Depending on how long you've had your infection depends on how potent the medication should be and mono state is a very mild yeast cream, unless you try mono state 7.

      Get checked by a doctor, then continue eating yogurt, drinking plenty of water, wearing all cotton undies, looser pants and eating not too many carbs. because yeast (candida bacteria) feeds on sugar and multiply.

      If you take the precautions everyday, you will not have any yeast infection problems, because once you've had an yeast infection, its extremely easy to get re-occurring infections.

  21. QUESTION:
    Is lactobacillus pills bad for pregnant woman with yeast infections who can't go to the doctor?
    I bought this nature's secret probiotic pill which has good bacteria that kills the bad bacteria that yeast infections give you. It says for pregnant people not to take it, but if you really need something for this problem, should you take it? What other ways can you naturally get rid of a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      I wouldn't recommend taking it til checking with a doctor to see what they say. I would recommend checking with the city health department to see if they offer a free women's health clinic that can evaluate this further for you.

  22. QUESTION:
    I'm pretty sure that I might have a yeast infection. What can I do naturally to get rid of it?
    For may be a week now, I had discharge that kind of looks like cottage cheese. It smells like absolutely nothing. I have had discharge for a year and it's always been normal except for now. I haven't gotten my period either. I don't know what could have caused it because I'm not on antibiotics and don't use scented soaps down there or wear scented underwear. I always wash everyday so I really don't know. I'm away right now because I visit my grandparents in Seattle every summer for about 2 or 3 weeks so I can't really go to the doctor or speak to my mom about it in person. Is this a yeast infection and if it is, how do I use yogurt to cure it? Also, it is not an STD because i am only 12 and have never had sex.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      There are many things you need to start doing and addressing if you are suffering from a yeast infection. To start, do the following:

      1. Wear loose clothing and undergarments, oxygen kills yeast, going commando and wearing nothing down there if possible is even better.

      2. Get some unsweetened yogurt and rub it onto a tampon, insert the tampon and do this continually until the yeast infection is gone. If this doesn't work for you, you can also use your fingers, however make sure you are laying down on your back to prevent it from dripping out.

      3. Cut out any and all sugar, alcohol and yeast from your diet. All three will promote the infection further.

      4. Start drinking cranberry juice, pure not from concentrate with no added sugar, I know this goes against the no sugar thing but the acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.

      5. If you can tolerate it, use a raw garlic clove and apply it to the infection, this may burn so dilute it with some olive or coconut oil, both of which can also help eliminate the yeast, especially the coconut.

      6. You can also try taking some vitamin B3, many women find their infections resolve quicker when they are taking 300mg/per day.

      7. Take a probiotic with at least 50 billion live cells per pill, this is key in redistributing good bacteria throughout your body, and effectively end the yeast infection. I know the brand renew life has a good one.

      8. Lastly if all else fails, begin adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath. Only fill the tub up high enough to submerge your genital area. Stay in the tub for 20-30 minutes at a time.

      Hope this helps, the yogurt is the key really, by putting good bacteria directly on the area you will eliminate it quickly. Make sure it is unsweetened and ideally keep an eye out for a variation called Kefir which has even more beneficial bacteria in it to snuff out the infection.

      When all is said and done I would suggest you research Candida and take a test to determine if you are suffering from it, as anyone who gets yeast infections has Candida, it's just a matter of how bad it is.

  23. QUESTION:
    does nappy rash cream help to get rid of yeast infection ? help?
    I think I have yeast infection, and I've had it for quite a while now.
    I didn't know it was yeast infection. But I do think it is because I do mostly everything that I am not supposed to do ( that causes the yest infection ) such as wearing skinny jeans, tights and leotard ( for dance classes 5 times a week. ) but I do use cotton pads when I am on my period.
    I am 14 years old any I do not want to tell my mom about this ! this is just way too embarrassing for me.
    I don't care if you guys are telling me to suck it up and be a woman and just tell her. I am really shy and I am like a closed book and I barely open my self to anyone about problems like these.
    my symptoms are ;
    redness on the vaginal area.
    it itches sometimes.
    Something around the vagina ( not actually in the vagina ) that looks white and smells funny but you can't feel any smell unless you touch it and smell the finger. ( ew. )

    I am currently using a nappy rash cream to clear it up. The name of the cream is Déflamol and it's for little babies. You use it to get rid of nappy rash and it heals and gets rid of all bacteria. You use it for itchiness and it's also used in allot of treatments aginst psoriasis.

    I don't even know how to say Yeast infection in my language and I don't think my mom will understand what it is and I won't want to have to describe all this because I barely know anything about it. I don't want to go to the doctor.
    Is there a way I can get rid of this naturally ?
    Do you think the Déflamol nappy rash cream will work ?

    p.s. sorry for my bad english ;s
    thank you for taking a look at my question.
    and I am not sexually active ;)
    okay so I told my mother !
    and she knew what I was talking about :)

  25. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of Bacterial Vaginosis?
    I thought I had a yeast infection but I don't. I'm pretty sure if anything is wrong down there, I have bacterial vaginosis. So, can anyone tell me how to get rid of it naturally. No doc please.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can't.

      Nothing will truly flush out or cure vaginosis without antibiotics. All natural products or home remedies only treat the symptoms, but not the disease.

      You should go to a free clinic and they can give you antibiotics.

      You should also not try to "let it run it's course." It's not that kind of disease. It will only get worse and can possibly turn into pelvic inflammatory disease, or even work it's way into your urethra and give you a UTI or kidney infection. Bone up and go to the doctor.

  27. QUESTION:
    How can both BV and yeast infection be treated naturally?
    If they can't, what product do I need to use to get rid of both of them, and do I need a prescription?

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections aren't that easy to permanently get rid of. Many products can temporarily relieve the symptoms, but a long term treatment approach will be your best bet to completely elliminate it.

      One of the more popular and effective homeopathic solutions is yeastrol. It's very effective at treating vaginal, penile and oral yeast infections.

      What you can also do to speed your recovery is to change you diet in a way that will starve the yeast organisms (Candida).

      Things that you should remove from your diet are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour,
      alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold.

      Things to add to your diet are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice and oat brans

      Another thing to keep in mind is that both you and your partner should consider the diet change/yeastrol treatment as you can be passing the infection back and forth between you.

      Hope this helps and best of luck! :)

  28. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection?
    I don't like taking medication, and the over the counter treatments at the drug store hurt and burn and I would not like to use them.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of a yeast infection naturally??

    • ANSWER:
      While a doctors perscription is best, there are some other things you can try to get rid of a yeast infection.

      Boric acid capsules are good, and sometimes they work better than an otc remedy. You would have to make the capsules yourself by putting the powder into empty caps. You can buy boric acid at the pharmacy in the eyecare section (it is a mild antiseptic). Put one capsule into your vag once in the morning and once at night for 2 weeks. there will be a little bit of watery discharge, but it works, and its inexpensive. I swear by it! !

      You can also use the capsules if you think you might have a yeast infection coming on. One or 2 treatments may nip the problem in the bud. I havent had an infection since I began using it

      Also, make sure you don't injest any boric acid. It is toxic if taken orally.

      Another thing you can do to prevent yeast infections is to eat plenty of yogurt, and take a folic acid suppliment daily.

  30. QUESTION:
    yeast infection & men, giving it to my boyfriend?
    ok so I've had a yeast infection for a while now. I tried to treat it with monistat 1 then monistat 7. the symptoms went away so I figured the infection was gone. My boyfriend & I had sex about 2 weeks ago but not since then (we usually live about 2 hours apart so we don't see each other very often) My doctor prescribed me diflucan to finally cure my yeast infection. My question is, how long after taking the diflucan should I wait to have sex again? I want to be finally rid of this stupid yeast infection so I don't want to risk giving it to him then reinfecting myself or irritating my vagina anymore with sex. So how long should I wait after taking the diflucan pill before it's safe to have sex? and also, if I had given the yeast infection to my boyfriend 2 weeks ago, would he still have it now or would his body have gotten rid of it naturally by now? I really want to be done with this infection once and for all!

    • ANSWER:
      1. Diflucan (I'm assuming you got the standard single dose here, right?) begins to clear the infection right away, but it can take several days to get rid of it all. I'd give it a week before resuming sex, personally, just to let yourself heal up.

      2. The thing with yeast infections in males is that they can get them (although not as easily as you can) but they often don't have any symptoms. If you had infected your bf two weeks ago, yes, he could still have it. It's not a guarantee that he'd give it to back you or anything, but it's certainly possible if you are prone to yeast overgrowth issues.

  31. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of Bacterial Vaginosis naturally?
    I got a mirena. It's been giving me BV horrendously. I had never had it before, so I ran to the doctor. I don't have insurance so I really cant afford an 800$ bill every 3 weeks. Plus, taking antibiotics every month is horrible for my body and then I have a yeast infection to deal with.
    I'm very clean. I never washed the interior, let it do it's own thing.
    I've been using plain yogurt inserts at night and apple vinegar douches in the morning (as I was told by a professional ob/gyn that is not my doctor)
    Is there anything else I can try? I'm on a budget, so please don't write a 0 list of willy nilly crap from the natural food store. Like can I increase the amount of yogurt? Some sites said folic acid pills. I want it gone. (the mirena too, but conveniently no one will remove it and my doctors wont admit my problem comes from the mirena... even though 90+ percent of its users get BV on a regular basis)
    I don't know why I can't get it removed. I swear I'm not the only one with this issue. They keep saying, 'you have to wait until you've had it for 6 months.' 'you have to wait til 8 months' '...a year' 'the mirena isn't causing these problems, its impossible' etc. Apparently i'm the only person thats had a problem with it... except the internet is filled with stories similar to mine. Also, most of my friends got one around the same time, they're dealing with the same problem. A friend had to flip out in the ER to get it removed. I don't have the cash for that.

    • ANSWER:
      The problem seems to be that you need to get the Mirena taken care of. BV should not keep coming back after the correct dosages of antibiotics. Although, you may want to ask your doctor for the vaginal gel, rather than oral antibiotics, as this targets the problem area rather than running the antibiotics through your entire system. I'm not understanding why you cannot get your IUD removed. Is this due to your lack of insurance? There should be no reason why you cannot have this done.

    Still haven't gotten my period?
    I was supposed to get my period 10 days ago and it still hasn't arrived. I've never had sex and I recently had a yeast infection which I got rid of naturally taking cranberry supplements. I have been somewhat stressed but not to the point were my period is 10 days late! Please help?

    • ANSWER:
      It's normal. Little, a lot or no stress at all, it's normal for your period to be late. The yeast infection may have pushed your period back a couple weeks. It happened to me before. Just wait another week, and if you still haven't got it then go see a doctor. But don't stress about it.

    change in diet...
    whatever i can find in the house

    • ANSWER:
      This might be the best news you can get.
      The smell you are talking about, don't worry about it. Your the only person who can smell it. Girl are so in tuned with there bodies that, they are the only person who can smell themselves like that.

      The discharge you are talking about is what is suppost to happen... that goo'y white stuff, is made by your body to help you have a baby. it feds the sperm and help them live.

      if you really don't like it, you can wear a lite day or douch.
      if you are really call to your doctor when you for a check up. you don't have to tell your step mom, but it could be a good way to get to know her.

  38. QUESTION:
    Natural Yeast Infection Cures Treatments?
    i am taking antibiotics and now i have a yeast infection. I am not happy.is there any way i can get rid of the infection naturally? any tip will be appreciated thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt - there's nothing in Greek yoghurt that will help, the reason pro-biotic yoghurt helps is because it contains lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that creates hydrogen peroxide that kills yeast. There's argument about whether eating it helps as it goes through digestive system and not via the vagina, but I know when I feel ill my vaginal health is effected and fact is bacteria from your anus will linger round your vagina - unpleasant, but they are the facts - so better it be healthy bacteria! You may prefer to take acidophilus tablets.

      Another edible solution is drinking either cranberry or blueberry juice (or taking cranberry tablets), these help by effecting the pH of your urine - the theory here is that as the urine passes over your vulva it may be of some help in fighting off the yeast beasties, or at least ease some discomfort.

      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt is best applied directly to your genitals, you can plaster it onto your vulva before bed, you can fill a syringe to insert into your vagina, or personally I recommend freezing in ice cube trays as an easy way to insert and cooling too. Do this overnight, wear a CLOTH pad or old underwear to bed then wash with water in the morning - commercial pads are a major cause of such infections so they're a no-no, and obviously anything chemical near your vagina like soap is a no-no.

      Garlic - not great smelling, but works well as it's a natural anti-fungal, you do literally take a garlic clove, peel and insert. Be careful not to score the clove as it may sting, and you may want to tie some clean thread around it so it's easier to remove.

      Tea tree oil - you can insert a few drops into your vagina and around your vulva, but to some women this is too uncomfortable, so instead try having a jug near the toilet to fill with water and add a few drops then wash it over your genitals when you go to the toilet...no reason to do it specifically then, it's just a handy time to do it. Same can be done with a mix of 1 tablespoon potassium sorbate to a cup of water, or 1 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water, or liter of water and 2 tablespoons of white or cidar vinegar, or Juice of half a lemon, or 1 teaspoon vitamin C.

      Gentian violet - this stuff is cool, it turns your snatch purple which is sort of freaky, it's a very old natural anti-fungal, you plaster it onto your genitals and that's that...well, you have to wear old underwear and use old sheets when you sleep as it will stain anything it comes into contact with. Use it once or twice a day for a few days.

      Another old one is Boric Acid - yes it sounds scary, but it's safe, you just load up about 600 mg into a couple of gel capsules then insert them into your vagina where your body heat will desolve the capsules and the boric acid will kill off the yeast.

    I douched with vinegar and some blackish chunks and milky stuff came out. Is that normal?
    I am trying to get rid of a yeast infection naturally. I mixed a little vinegar with water and used it as a douche. I have never douched before. Immediately the toilet was filled with a murky whitish liquid and a few black chunks floating inside. My period just ended a few days ago so the black stuff could be from then. I have also been putting in yogurt at night so that could be the white or it could be normal discharge. What do you think? Also, how often should I do this? I am trying to get the Ph of my vagina straightened out.

    • ANSWER:
      Douching is bad, don't do it it screws with the vaginas natural juices.lol But i would say that u should probably see a doctor.

    Yeast infection questions?

How do I get rid of it? Can it be cured naturally? Please help i'm worried! Oh does that vagisil screening kit work please serious answers only!

    • ANSWER:
      It's an itchy feeling you might hardly notice at first. Maybe,you muse, it's just that your jeans are too tight. Actually,tight jeans may have something to do with it. But if the itch keeps getting itchier, even when your jeans have been off for awhile, then there's something else involved.

      That something else could very well be a fungus whose technical name is Candida, and which causes what is often called a "yeast" infection. Such infections are most common in teenage girls and women aged 16 to 35, although they can occur in girls as young as 10 or 11 and in older women (and less often, in men and boys as well). You do not have to be sexually active to get a yeast infection.

      The Food and Drug Administration now allows medicines that used to be prescription-only to be sold without a prescription to treat vaginal yeast infections that keep coming back. But before you run out and buy one, if you've never been treated for a yeast infection you should see a doctor. Your doctor may advise you to use one of the over-the-counter(OTC) products or may prescribe a drug called Diflucan (fluconazole).The FDA recently approved the drug for clearing up yeast infections with just one dose.

      Though itchiness is a main symptom of yeast infections, if you've never had one before, it's hard to be sure just what's causing your discomfort. After a doctor makes a diagnosis of vaginal yeast infection, if you should have one again, you can more easily recognize the symptoms that make it different from similar problems. If you have any doubts, though, you should contact your doctor.
      Other symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection include:

      soreness
      rash on outer lips of the vagina
      burning, especially during urination.
      The OTC products for vaginal yeast infections have one of four active ingredients: butoconazole nitrate (Femstat 3), clotrimazole (Gyne-Lotrimin and others), miconazole (Monistat 7 and others), and tioconazole (Vagistat). These drugs are in the same anti-fungal family and work in similar ways to break down the cell wall of the Candida organism until it dissolves. FDA approved the switch of Femstat 3 from prescription to OTC status December 1996 and a similar switch for Vagistat in February 1997. The others have been available OTC for a few years.
      When you visit the doctor the first time you have a yeast infection, you can ask which product may be best for you and discuss the advantages of the different forms the products come in: vaginal suppositories (inserts) and creams with special applicators. Remember to read the warnings on the product's labeling carefully and follow the directions.

  43. QUESTION:
    How can I make my feminine odor less potent?
    I know that some girls, like myself, naturally produce more yeast - which leads to feminine odor. However, despite using products like Summer's Eve, it seems I cannot fully get rid of the odor, especially if I'm turned on.

    Does anyone know of any natural solutions to make my problem go away?

    • ANSWER:
      Your diet affects how your vagina smells, tastes(during intercourse like eating you out), and its health. To make it less potent and more healthy start eating more fruit and yogurt... this will give it a sweet smell and taste. Not to mention the vitamin c and the probiotics will prevent infections. Avoid spices and garlic before sex.

  44. QUESTION:
    Is surgery my only option for Fibroid tumors?
    Hi I'm a 27 year old female from Los Angeles, CA and was detected that I have 3 Fibroid tumors. This year in May 2010 I got my period and was having excruciating pain that I didn't know why was it that bad. So thinkig it didn't seem normal to me I went to go see a doctor and the doctor told me I had a bladder infection and gave me meds. So from that I thought okay that was the problem then No more worries. Well surely after I didn't get my period in June but I was having early bad cramps since I didn't get my period on time I decided to go see a Gyno she had said I have Yeast infection but she seemed like it's no biggie that it's treatable but had said she wanted me to get a pelvic ultra sound with a radiologist. So since she didn't seemed worried I went to go get the test and got an unexpected suprise that I have 3 Fibroid tumors but away from my uteros. As some of you who have been in my situation know how I felt and was really dumbfounded. I even know a couple of friends who have had it and have been through really bad situations which I would want to go through. I've never had kids but would like to have some one day. I am not sure on the sizes of tumors but from what I saw in the ultrasound two might look like the size of a golf ball around there and one is a little bigger Im just guessing. I'm supposed to go see my gyno in a week. I was away in Australia for a year 2009 and had bad cramp pain but not as much as i've been having it here back home so makes me wonder I may have had it that long. I have faith that I'm hoping that all will go well. I've been told by several people that I can naturally get rid of them but I would have to be in a strict diet and that the fibroids may come back. So would this be an option if I really take care of myself?

    Ladies only who have had it a couple of questions; What was your experience when you had it? Are there certain foods that I should watch out for? What would be my best decision to get rid of these tumors and still have a chance in the future of having a baby with my current partner? How long does it take to recover? I was told there's laser surgery to get them removed. Would that be safe? I dont have insurance but might be getting medical so pray for me and wish me luck. Please share some of your similar experiences with me and maybe some way to aleviate my pain that im having right now. . . I DO NOT WANT MY UTERUS TO GET REMOVED so please any advice you can give me I would truly appreciate it. :)

    THANK YOU!!!

    • ANSWER:
      There is a minimally invasive procedure called uterine fibroid embolization (you can Google this for more info). It is done by an interventional radiologist. A small incision is made in your groin and catheters are inserted until they reach the blood vessels supplying the fibroids. Small particles are injected into these vessels to block them. This causes the fibroids to shrink as they no longer have any blood supply. Over several weeks to months the fibroids shrivel up and you will not have any more symptoms. This is a quick procedure, about an hour and does not require a hospital stay. Ask your gynecologist if you are a candidate for this procedure and if he/she can refer you to a doctor that does this. This procedure is good for young women who want to preserve their uterus for future pregnancny.
      Hope this was helpful.

  45. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection after delivery?
    I had my son about 4 and a half weeks ago - naturally. Right after I deivered I got a UTI from a catheter they used due to the epidural. Thyey gave me medicine and I got rid of it. Now I have been itchy 24/7 and burning sensation. Could this be a yeast infection? Is it normal to get a yeast infection after having a baby?

    • ANSWER:
      It could be, but no, that's not usual. Usually, all infections and problems that a woman may have had during pregnancy actually get cleared up and PH levels all go back to normal. Just to be safe, I would go to the doctor and let them swab it and look at it under the microscope to determine what it is for sure.

  47. QUESTION:
    what will happen if i dont treat with medicines???
    im suffering from repeat yeast infection. first time i went to see a doc and took a viganal insert. next time i went to see another doc took different medicine. but i cant seem to get rid of this yeast infection. it comes back after about 1 or two months later.
    im really tired of going to a doc and put those inserts. it just seems wrong to me to use them too often.
    is there anyway to treat it naturally?
    will just eating yoghurt and drinking water, wearing cotton panties, using unscented soap will help?
    im changing my panties at least twice a day and using unscented soap. but i dont like yoghurt. if yoghurt is really important i will eat them....

    help girlz.....

    • ANSWER:
      The first thing to do is STOP USING SOAP. You should not use soap in the vaginal area. The vagina is a self cleaning oriface and soap strips away too much of the good bacteria allowing the bad aka yeast to take over and grow. You need to treat it but if you are sure it is a yeast infection then see the doc and ask for Diflucan which is a pill and works better than the creams or inserts. Once you take it be sure you are eating enough yogurt every day with live active cultures or taking acidophillus capsules to help from getting it again. If you are sexually active then get your partner tested as he may not show symptoms but have it. Also do not use tampons while you have an active infection. Do not douche and do not take a tub bath if you have a shower. Make sure your pants are not to tight and do not sleep in your underwear. Be sure your underwear truely is 100% cotton (read the lable).

  48. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of the fishy smell?
    ok, im kind of embaressed to ask this, but for a few years my vagina has a fishy smell. I havent gotten my period yet, and I know it's not a yeast infection, because I haven't gotten the other symptoms for it. I heard that some women naturally smell like that, and I just want to get rid of it. I take baths, and shower normally, but really it does nothing. I'm too embarressed to tell my mom, too. So, I have no way of getting over the counter stuff. Just, is there a way to get rid of it, and is this normal?
    Not getting any discharge, not really itching or burning either. Just smells =/

    • ANSWER:
      Don't use soaps in your vagina! That can cause odors. You can use Summer's Eve on the vulva but, not inside yourself. You can also buy wipes just for odors but, read the directions.

      How do you dress? If you wear tight pants alot, that can hold in heat making it heaven for odor causing bacteria. After you shower...if you have a hand held shower head that will work best for cleaning the outside of the vulva and the inside of the vulva... pat your vulva dry and sleep in very loose fitting bottoms with no panties. Air needs to circulate.

      Never put perfumes on your vulva to cover a smell, either.

    how to get rid of ?

    Male yeast infection..!?
    Okay, I had yeast infections for 3 years now. I did go to plan parenthood and they gave me this creams that dont work on me. so i decided to go to a urologist to take a look, they gave me a strong cream crystal clear one that burned my penis so hard, but it helped atleast. But eventually 2 months later it came back and im having trouble getting rid of it again. i dont want to go back to the urologyst it will cost a lot again. is there any good effective way to cure this naturally?? please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Eat more yogurt. Lots! You need more good bacteria in your system.

      Good luck!

      EDIT: To the people below who claim to know a bit about natural meds, I am a healthcare professional-a cardiovascular technologist, and i have seen time and time again that natural medicine works even when prescribed medication doesnt.

      Yogurt is full of live cultures which naturally slow down the growth of yeast. This is why after you take antibiotics-which also kill good bacteria, most docs will advise you eat pro-biotic foods.

      Cranberry juice is great for digestive health. Its help directly for yeast infections is slim, but its so good for your that it can only help your system as a whole.

      Please don't listen to people who have no idea what they are talking about. Especially the one who claims to have a biology degree.

      Good luck and feel better.


Get Rid Of Yeast Infection Quick

Written By: admin - Feb• 21•12

Have you ever experienced waking up one day with an uncontrollable itch down your genital area, and then finding it all sore and red? If you have then you probably have yeast infection. Yeast infection has plagued man ever since the beginning of time, but our forefathers was able to remove it without any use of modern medicines, so you really don't need all those creams and ointments being sold out there. In this article I will tell you how to get rid of yeast infection without medication.

Yeast infection is actually caused by a fungus called Candida Albicans. Now this type of fungus already resides inside our body and most of the time it is very harmless. But if there is a major imbalance happening in our bodies like pregnancy or we got really sick or were stressed this can set off the growth of the fungus./ And if our body's defense mechanism is weak it will result to an infection.

So how to do we get rid of yeast infection with medication? Well we start off with our diet. The fungus actually thrives on sugar, so if you have the fungus it is advisable that you cut down on the sweet stuff like candies, soda. Not only that you should also cut down on food that is high on carbohydrates, because food high on carbohydrates once processed by our body turns into sugar.

The second thing you should do is avoid wearing tight clothes; the fungus prefers moist, damp places. So if you are wearing tight jeans or leather pants, the skin cannot breathe properly, thus creating a very conducive environment for the infection.

Last thing you should do is to use natural remedies that help remove the fungus that causes the infection and helps the body get back its natural balance in order to fight off the fungus, thus preventing it from coming back again. You can use Tea Tree Oil, Vinegar, Oatmeal, Yogurt, Honey, Aloe Vera and many more.

If you stay off the sugar, wear loose comfortable clothes and use any combination of the above natural remedies you can get rid of yeast infection without medication.

  2. QUESTION:
    what is the quickest way to get rid of a yeast infection?
    ive tryed the yogurt and the tampon thing! it hasnt worked for me but im about to freak out i cant stnd this yeast infection anymore PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    yes ive had a yeast infection before and no its not an std ive been tested just please any suggestions!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      I'll just run through a list off the top of my head,

      There are many things you need to start doing and addressing if you are suffering from a yeast infection. To start, do the following:

      1. Wear loose clothing and undergarments, oxygen kills yeast, going commando and wearing nothing down there if possible is even better.

      2. Get some unsweetened yogurt and rub it onto a tampon, insert the tampon and do this continually until the yeast infection is gone.

      3. Cut out any and all sugar, alcohol and yeast from your diet. All three will promote the infection further.

      4. Start drinking cranberry juice, pure not from concentrate with no added sugar, I know this goes against the no sugar thing but the acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.

      5. If you can tolerate it, use a raw garlic clove and apply it to the infection, this may burn so dilute it with some olive or coconut oil, both of which can also help eliminate the yeast, especially the coconut.

      6. You can also try taking some vitamin B3, many women find their infections resolve quicker when they are taking 300mg/per day.

      7. Take a probiotic with at least 50 billion live cells per pill, this is key in redistributing good bacteria throughout your body, and effectively end the yeast infection. You must do this continually until you have eliminated your yeast infections and Candida entirely.

      8. Lastly if all else fails, begin adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath. Only fill the tub up high enough to submerge your genital area. Stay in the tub for 20-30 minutes at a time.

      Hope this helps, the yogurt is the key really, by putting good bacteria directly on the area you will eliminate it quickly. Make sure it is unsweetened and ideally keep an eye out for a variation called Kefir that's derived from Goat Milk and has even more beneficial bacteria in it to eliminate the infection.

    • ANSWER:

    How to quickly get rid of a yeast infection?
    I am 14 years old. About 2 weeks ago, I started taking antibiotics to help clear my acne. Last night, I noticed 'down there' was really itchy, and it was very uncomfortable. When I asked my mom about it this morning, she gave me a pill for it. Stupid me, forgot to eat when I took it, so I got REALLY sick.I almost threw up, and I'm surprised I didn't pass out. I am feeling better, now, though. I don't think the medicine is working. I have my best friend's birthday party that she and I had planned together tomorrow, and we will be having a water balloon fight, hide-and-go-seek when it turns dark, and other stuff. I don't want to be uncomfortable the whole time, so how do I get rid of it quick? And I heard plain yogurt helps, but I don't have any yogurt of any kind.
    Also, I'm not taking antibiotics while I have my yeast infection. But, I have to take them again when I get rid of it, so what is a good way to prevent getting another?

    I think the antibiotics made me more likely to get a yeast infection. I'm pregnant and need to get rid of this nasty infection.. Anyone have a quick and easy solution for me that is safe during pregnancy? Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Douching and such seems to always make things worse and all the creams I applied didn't help either. Here is what I did, because it would happen to me wear cotton and/or not dyed undies. No tight jeans and the main thing eat a cup or small container of yogurt once a day. Eating yogurt always helped me, sometimes I do plain *store brand* yogurt and add fruits *blueberries and strawberries* and others I eat the vanilla activia. Hope this helps.

  17. QUESTION:
    yeast infection? std? i don't know! long, but i need help quick please!?
    Okay, so let me pretty much give you the run down... I know this is gross but i reaaaally need answers from a nurse/doctor or from someone who has been through this before... and quick!

    I'm a sixteen year old girl who is sexually active. I don't think my boyfriend has an std because we've been having sex since february and I'm just now developing this discomfort... which i think is possibly a yeast infection, and this is why i think that:

    I've had a yeast infection once before when I was 13, and I'm experiencing very similar symptoms (burning, reeeaally itchy, discharge) except this time they're a bit more severe and I also have another symptom which Ive never heard comes with a yeast infection. and it's really embarressing/gross so bare with me..

    I began experiencing discomfort on Thursday, but I thought it was just irritation from my tampon because that usually happens to me when Im menstruating.

    Friday, the last day of my period, was irritated but then I drank a bit & it felt better (lol) so I used a tampon anyways. just one all day though.

    Saturday, it was itchy itchy itchy & this is when i began realizing something may be up. i wasn't swollen / showing discharge though so I figured it was just from my period, because again, this happens when i use tampons sometimes. Saturday I drank a lot though & ended up having sex and....

    Sunday I woke up with severrreeee symptoms, including white, pimple-like bumps covering my labia majora, and since yesterday I've had odorless yellow discharge with the consistency of snot.. I also tried popping some of the "pimples" & dabbing peroxide on them (i knooooow its nasty) which got rid of most all of them, except now everythings very inflammed.

    I also think it's most likely a yeast infection because I've had a very poor diet lately (lots of beer/wine/vodka/carbs...no yogurt or cranberries or any of those good foods that help prevent yeast infections) and I've been dealing with a lot of stress, well, pretty much all year. especially lately.

    ANYWAYS, I plan on telling my mom about how I believe I have a yeast infection today, she doesn't know that I've had one before, and I don't plan on telling her about the white bumps (way too embarressed.) I just needed a second opinion on what it may be if not a yeast infection? like, if the bumps could mean something more serious?

    Since i've come off my period there aren't any white bumps, but it still is bumpy, and super itchy! so the quicker you help me out, the better!

    Is There A Quick at-home treatment for a yeast infection?
    I was recently put on antibiotics for an infection after getting my teeth worked on. NOW I have a yeast infection! grrrr
    Anyway, looking on the internet only tells me things I can't do. Like apple cider vinegar, monestat, etc. Basically, things that cost money, and I am so broke at the moment. I can't even afford food at the moment..ok that has nothing to do with it...
    Is there ANYTHING, I can try to even just help relieve this insane itching? Just till I can get a few bucks to get rid of it?
    I tried sleeping without panties on last night and it felt weird, but did not help what-so-ever.
    Any help is appreciated in advance.

  19. QUESTION:
    how to treat a yeast infection?
    ok so heres the deal. I have had the burning and itching for a little over three weeks now. i went to my doctor and ob gyn which they told me to try over counter medication. I tried vagisil but it only irritated my skin and temporarily covered the symptoms. I am now using this cream in which you put it into a tube and insert it into the vagina but as soon as its in it starts to sting. ive searched all over the internet for solutions but they always say insert a curd covered tampon or garlic into the vagina. ihave never used a tampon before so i am too afraid to do that. there are also books being sold on how to get rid of a yeast infection but i just want a solution without wasting all my money on books and over the counter medications. please please please provide help!!! i can never sleep at night because of this infection and i just want it over and done with. i know yogurt and hat apple cider vinegar may work but i need to know what works 100% and quick because this is TORTURE!!!
    oh the stuff im using right now is miconazole 7 or something like that. i was wondering, if it stings when its in, does it mean its working or should i stop using it all together because after it started stinging the burn and itch became less severe

    • ANSWER:
      Ok So first go to your Gyno to get a medication to help relieve the symptoms and combat the yeast infection FAST.

      A yeast infection occurs when the pH of your vagina is changed which allows the yeast to overgrow
      It can be caused by:
      Wearing a wet bathing suit for too long, using a douche which kills the normal/harmless bacteria living in your vagina, using an antibiotic that kills the normal bacteria that live in your vagina that Prevent the growth of harmful bacteria OR yeast.

      The bacteria that lives on your body is called "normal flora" and they actually help you to prevent bad bacteria or yeast/fungus to take over and cause you harm. So you don't want to get rid of them.

      That is why Yogurt is actually GOOD to eat all the time everyday to PREVENT new yeast infections, help regulate your digestive system, etc.. Eating yogurt replaces some of the normal Flora bacteria that keep your vagina healthy and return it to it's normal pH.

      Avoid: keeping bating suits or wet clothing on for too long, douching (you should only wash the inside of the vagina with water; outside with mild soap), and taking too many antibiotics.

  20. QUESTION:
    yeast infection?
    So I have a yeast infection. I told my mom about it and she told me to take a bath in vinegar water, because it apparently helps get rid of it quicker along with medicine.
    Does vinegar water baths actually help?
    And what are the causes of yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      yes thats absolutely fine...but you should still try to get Monistat you can purchase at any pharmacy.

      A vaginal yeast infection is irritation of the vagina and the area around the vagina, called the vulva. It is caused by an overgrowth of the fungus or yeast Candida. Yeast normally live in the vagina in small numbers, but when the bacteria in the vagina become out of balance, too many yeast grow and cause an infection. I hope this helps**

  21. QUESTION:
    34 weeks yeast infection?
    I'm 34 1/2 weeks pregnant and have a yeast infection. My doctor told me to take over the counter monistat and he said any of them were safe (1-7 day)..I have looked and there are so many different ones. i was going to take the 1 day because it would be much quicker to get rid of it in one day instead of 7 and then i thought about the 3 day. do they all have the same effectiveness? if i took the 1 or 3 day would my infection be gone within that many days? pls share info..thanks

    • ANSWER:
      i had one towards the beginning of my pregnancy and my doctor told me to go with the 3 day one. just make sure that you're doing it otherwise it could get worse. and don't have sex while doing it lol. let alone you shouldn't if you have a yeast infection anyway. but they should all have the same effectiveness. mine took a 5 days to get rid of with the 3 day one. but it just took a little longer to kick in i guess...but it went away so i was happy so it didn't matter to me lol. but good luck. :D

  22. QUESTION:
    If you take one round of over-the-counter yeast infection treatment, is it ok to take another after?
    last tuesday i took the 1-day ticonzale monistat treatment, but i took it in the morning (didn't follow the instructions closely) and i think it all leaked out too quick to really work. it did help some though and i think the infection is starting to go away but it's not all gone and i'm SICK of it. i've been taking azo yeast and acidophilus, drinking cranberry juice and eating plain yogurt (ew..)

    Is it gonna hurt me to take another treatment...this time at NIGHT and get rid of the stupid infection for good?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think it would hurt, it sounds like you have a stubborn infection. I would even try the 2 or 3 day treatment to be sure it is gone.

      Hint: cranberry juice won't do anything for yeast infections, it is more for the bladder and UTI.

    • ANSWER:
      All the things your taking are good to prevent a yeast infection, but won't help if you already have an infection.

      Taking another treatment won't hurt you, but if it doesn't work, you might consider an over the counter 3 day treatment (I know, it's disgusting). If THAT doesn't work, see a doctor.

  24. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection, bacterial vaginitis *and* a UTI ... is my vagina committing suicide?
    No, I don't really think my vagina's trying to off itself, but clearly, I've made it very unhappy somehow.

    I've had a yeast infection for 7 weeks and had tried everything to get rid of it. Even 5 doses of Diflucan in a row couldn't kill it off. (I did all the eating yogurt and taking acidophilus stuff too.) I thought it was a resistant strain, until today, when I went into a doctor for like the fourth time.

    Before this visit, I hadn't had a full exam done down there — just quick swabs to check for yeast. Well, today, the doctor checked me out.

    Her initial reaction?

    "Oh my." She found yeast, but she also found a bitchin' case of bacterial vaginosis. Oh...I also tested positive for what I can only assume is a pretty new UTI (since I haven't experienced any UTI symptoms yet).

    I'm taking Diflucan, Flagyl and Cipro to take care of all my problems now, and the doc says the only reason Diflucan didn't kill the yeast last time around was because the BV was making my vagina a veritable breeding ground for nasty lil' microbes.

    Whew! That was long-winded. So, on to my questions:

    Have any of ya'll had any combination of yeast infection, BV and/or UTI at the same time before?

    Does anyone know how to explain what might have caused both these problems to arise at the same time?

    Any advice on how to prevent both BV and yeast infections in the future? I'm taking a probiotic with nice, friendly "good" bacteria in it already and have amped up my yogurt consumption. Any tips besides that?

    By the way, if anyone tells me to "stop sleeping around" or to "shower, dummy," go play in traffic. I've had the same partner for 2 years, and we use condoms, and I shower and clean really well (but not with soap because that's a healthy vagina no-no) daily.
    Hey guys...no need to bother telling me how to treat yeast infections, by the way. I've had this one for 7 weeks and have researched EVERYTHING. (Turns out, the BV was the only reason the YI wouldn't go away.)

    And to the first answerer ... I agree. The world is totally dying.

    • ANSWER:
      Wow..

      I have never had a UTI, but I have had a yeast infection and BV together at the same time. It wasn't fun, and I thought I had a stubborn strain of a yeast infection. I was given a cream to insert into my vagina for the yeast infection and pills (I don't remember the name) for BV.

      Have you tried the AZO brands? They are pills in with the vitamins or feminine products (depending on what store you go to). They are about 6 dollars, but they really help. I use the AZO Yeast and it prevents me from getting yeast infections (and I never eat yogurt!). Every time I even feel a little itch down there, I swallow one of the pills and it goes away!

      I know they make AZO UTI too. I heard they work well at preventing and treating the symptoms (but it doesn't cure the UTI or yeast infection), but I've never had a UTI so I don't use them. Drinking cranberry juice or taking cranberry supplements can help prevents UTI's as well.

      As for your BV, my doctor said I got it from wiping wrong. I know it's gross, but hey, I'm not the only one who does it. Make sure to wipe front to back (even though it's easier to wipe back to front). Your feces particles can get in your vagina and can cause BV. Seriously. It's gross, but thats the most common cause of it.

      I hope I helped! Good luck and I really recommend the AZO products at preventing yeast infections and UTI's!

  25. QUESTION:
    Possible Yeast Infection, and ways to treat it?
    I think I may have a possible yeast infection. It's extremely red and itchy down there, and has been going on like this for a few weeks now. Also, there's like, flakes which I think are there because it is dry, but I can't tell.
    I prefer not to go to a doctor because it's awkward talking about this with anyone >_> What I started doing last night and will be doing is eating yogurt atleast twice a day. We have the greek vanilla flavored yogurt (only one my mother will get) that I have been eating. I heard avoiding fruits and high starch and sugar foods.. But what else can I do?
    It's becoming extremely comfortable, and need a quick way to get rid of it.
    When we get plain yogurt, I think I will try the tampon with the yogurt thing... But I need more ways I can try to do this by myself rather than get my mother/doctor involved.
    I'm shy. >_>;

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Yogurt will probably not help you at this point. It may help soothe the area, but eating yogurt is more of a preventative measure. You actually need to talk to your doctor for several reasons 1) if it's your first yeast infection it needs to actually be diagnosed, so its not recommended going to a drugstore and buying a product until you know. 2) It kind of doesn't sound like a yeast infection with the flaking.

      If it is a yeast infection it will not go away with yogurt and avoiding sugars and starches - trust me - you will be miserable for months. It's nothing to be ashamed of, you just need to be treated. There are medicines that you can take that will make this go away in day.

  27. QUESTION:
    :( i seem to have a yeast infection... any help? read for details please...?
    see, i dont have redness around but i have a strange discharge around the penile area and itching with burning and uncomfort. but none of the sites on google gave me good tips for getting rid of the infection. (im male so please dont give me advise for vaginal infections.) does anyone know any good home remedies that are painless and quick? cause i cant tell my parents and i dont have access to a doctor or drugstores... so im kind of in a rut.
    P.S. no i did not get this from having sex.
    P.S.S. i am not grown up and still live with my parents...
    thanks guys.
    oh... and i am not uncircumcised and i am not diabetic.

    • ANSWER:
      Are you uncircumcised? Are you diabetic? both of these can be contributing factors to a yeast infection in a male. It is possible for you to have urinary tract infection from other sources besides sex. This really needs a doctor to do some blood tests and a urine specimen to determine how to treat it. Most yeast is treated with antibiotics that require a prescription. This discharge dose not sound like a yeast infection. You need to find a way to get to a doctor before this becomes a serious health issue. A urinary tract infection is a big deal if left untreated in a male.Good Luck

  28. QUESTION:
    Anyone take both diflucan and monistat for yeast infection?
    I took a diflucan pill this morning and was going to take monistat 1 before bed tonight just to be sure I get rid of it. Do you think this is a good idea. Im hoping this will work quicker since I cannot tolerate the itching and burning anymore. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you can take both.
      It will also help you heal faster if you eliminate sugar, dairy & yeast breads from your diet for a few days.
      Good luck.

  29. QUESTION:
    Help my yeast infecion is KILLING ME?
    Hi there, I am prone to getting yeast infections, I have made an appointment with my O.B.G.Y.N to get to the bottom of this. Any of the cream combo pacts don't work for me, and I do not have any around the house. I have to take the single pill that I have an un-limited re-peat on right now that gets rid of the infection. Only problem, the infection came on quick today, it is Sunday night, I cannot sleep because my lady regions are burning and itching so bad. I have no idea how to relieve this, I took an allergy pill and tried some penatin cream and a cold cloth. Any suggestions would be great at this point in time. I have to get up at 6:50 in the morning. The pharmacy is closed until 9:00 tomorrow morning, at which point I will be working.
    I only have flavoured yogurt, I can't put that down there.....

    • ANSWER:
      Plain yogurt
      This home remedy is for vaginal yeast infections.
      1. Go to the store and buy a small carton of "plain" yogurt -- doesn't matter whether it is name brand or store brand or is nonfat, lowfat or wholefat because you are NOT going to eat it. But make sure it is PLAIN with NO fruit, NO added sugar (milk sugar listed on the carton doesn't count of course), and NO flavoring in it of ANY type. You should make sure that whatever type yogurt you buy has "ACTIVE CULTURES" listed on its container.

      2. While you're at the store pick up a box of tampons to go with the yogurt.

      3. Pay for them. No one will look at you weird and no one will ask for any ID. ( this #3 is a humorous point only, so laugh .... but do pay!)

      Now you're curious, aren't you?

      But seriously now,

      4. Go home and take one of the tampons and dip it into the yogurt and insert it into the vagina, allowing it to stay in place for at least an hour or so -- longer certainly won't hurt you. It is COOL and SOOTHING for one thing and will get some of the "good bacteria" right where it is needed the most since that is the main reason to use it -- to get the "GOOD" bacteria into where there is a build up of too much "bad" yeast type bacteria.

      5. Continue this for once or twice a day for two or three days, or as long as needed, until the situation resolves itself.

      6. Of course, REMEMBER TO KEEP THE CONTAINER OF "MEDICINAL" YOGURT SEPARATE FROM THE OTHER ONES IN YOUR FRIG THAT YOU MIGHT EAT (and of course throw out any leftovers). You can more than likely use homemade yogurts too.

  30. QUESTION:
    My IUD string feels rough and different, could certain substances damage it?
    When I feel for my IUD string now it feels rough, spiky and thick, not like the normal skinny smooth "fishing line" texture. Me and my partner could both feel it while having sex. I'm not sure if it somehow got tangled? or got damaged by a product i used? I can't seem to find any info online either about damaged feeling IUD strings. HELP!

    Can boric acid or hydrogen peroxide damage IUD Strings?
    More info:
    I have a copper IUD which was inserted about 2 years ago. Everything has been going great and I frequently check the strings. This summer I have had a bad run in with recurrent yeast infections which i treated and then turned in to recurrent bacterial vaginosis. The antibiotics and all the doctor prescribed drugs work to get rid of the infection quick, but they also kill all the good bacteria, disrupting the vagina, and the infections always come back.

    I finally have got my vagina back into order by doing a program that utilized hydrogen peroxide/water douches and inserting acidophilus pills in the vagina (the ones i used also contained boric acid)

    Can boric acid or hydrogen peroxide damage IUD Strings?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry but I think you are going to have to ask your GP about this, sounds as though you need to be examined so they can see exactly what has happened to the strings, if your partner can feel them during sex then you can't leave things as they are.

  31. QUESTION:

I plan to call back in the morning because my next appointment is not til oct 26! ANY EXPLANATIONS OR SUGGESTIONS

    • ANSWER:
      BV is very common in preg women... its just an overgrowth of bacteria.. when you are preg the PH levels in your vagina change causing this overgrowth... sometimes there are no symptoms sometimes there is a clear discharge with a foul smelling odor... its nothing to worry about now that it was caught.. if you had it and werent tested for it it could pose a problem if you werent preg or diagnosed it can cause infertility in the future. the normal dosage is 500 mg 2-3 t imes a day for 7-10 days depending on which bacteria was found..
      everything is fine... for future refrence to reduce your chances of getting these do these... wipe from front to back, wear cotton underwear (not thongs the baceria are easily brought to the vagina if you wear them) dry your vagina when you get out of the shower.. and eat yogurt that have live active cultures ( i know yoplait has them)
      this is very common and nothing to worry about i promise!! just take your meds as prescribed

  32. QUESTION:
    Need help.. please?
    Okay ladies quick question.. how to get rid of a yeast infection? I know my Doc. says I can use the Monestat 7 or whatever and have to insert the cream for 7 days, I don't want to have to do it for 7 days. Is there any other way to rid a yeast infection?? Any advice would be GREAT! Thanks!!

    Oh if it matters I'm 38 weeks pregnant.
    Okay I know I can't take any of the other ones because y ou can't put that much medicine into your body at once (this is my 2nd pregnancy) I've had them once or twice I just wanted to know if their was a different like natural way to get rid of it. Thanks though, I'll just do what Doc said.
    And BELIEVE me I know what thrush is! I had a yeast infection when I gave birth to my 1st (my Doc. just put it off), thats why I wanted a shorter way to get rid of it in case I go into labor, my daughter had horrible thrush and I felt so horrible I just don't want to have to go through that again so I'll just do the 7 day

    • ANSWER:
      My doctor told me when you're pregnant you need to use the 7-day treatment for a yeast infection. The shorter treatments (aka 1-day or 3-days) deliver a higher dose which isn't ideal during pregnancy.

  33. QUESTION:
    I need and answer quick!!! ITS AN EMERGENCY!!?
    Okay, sunday I thought I had a yeast infection and so I got the one day quick package you buy at the store to get rid of it. And just 20 min. ago I got discharge that was clumpy and pink and it freaked me out! I need a doctors advice! Do I have herpes?!?! mt cervix on the inside and on the outside feels itchy and irritating, not really burning and I'm freaking out please help me!

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like a very bad yeast infection. Sometimes the skin can become so raw and inflamed that it can bleed a little causing the discharge to be pink. It is normal for a yeast infection to itch. Sometimes the treatments will come with an external itch cream that you can rub on the outer lip to ease the itching. I would only be concerned if you think you may have an STD. If you have herpes then you should see some sores and not just the discharge....

  34. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of genital fluids...PLEASE HELP!?
    To start off I just want to say that I am 19 years, and NOT sexually active.

    Since August 2010, I've been having abnormal discharge, and sort of a fishy smell "down there". No itching sensation, no burning when peeing...so I immediate thought was i had BV. I bought some over the counter treatment to see if it would help but nothing....so then i finally when to the gynecologist (beginning of oct. 2019) they did a pap smear and said that I was negative for BV, yeast infection, and all that but they would send my pap test to a different lab for further results. 3 days later i got a call from them saying a had chlamydia. So i went to the gynecologist that day, got my antibiotics, and took it that day. 10 days later (and no i had not had sex since I had diagnosed with chlamydia) ...my discharge STILL continued. it wasn't AS fishy, but its was a creamy, white color...and there was still a smell. So i went to the gynecologist AGAIN. and they took ANOTHER pep test. This time they did a culture. 3 days later, they called me saying that I had strep b.

    Now i was confused because usually women who are pregnant have strep b...me i am NOT pregnant. (they took a test when i was at the doctor)

    So anyways they gave me 500mg of penicillin -- take one pill every six hours for seven days.
    So a week since i finished the antibiotics, and STILL NO CHANGE.
    I still have discharge. There a tint of yellow, there is an odor. I havent had sex since i had the "scare" with the std also.

    so i went back to the gynecologist (dec 6) (AGAIN NOW FOR THE FOURTH TIME) and they took a quick pap smear and results came back negative for EVERYTHING...and all they said is that i have genital fluids. they didn't know what the hell was wrong and she suggested that i take some yeast medication to see if that would clear up...even though i have NO symptoms for yeast infection.

    so what can i do to help get rid of my problem, ive been takin like two showers a day, changing panties like twice a day because of my smelly discharge.

    ..oh and this has been a continuous cycle since august!
    PLEASE HELP :( ((((((( what are your suggestions?

    ive already tried the yoghurt's method and Hydrogen Peroxide method ---- even though i was told not to cuz that could mess up my PH levels...but i was desperate.

    • ANSWER:
      GRP B Strep is not for women who are preg. rather women who are preg. get tested and treated for GBS because it could infect the baby. Actually 20-30% of ALL women have GBS as part of the normal vaginal flora-so dont freak out.

      In the vagina as well as at other places there is a balance between various bacteria and fungus...they keep eachother in check so non of the species get dominant. When you take antibiotics, you mess with the balance so a species of bact. or fungus rise up and move from simply colonizing the vagina to causing an actual infection.

      My suggestion is wait a few days before you go back...dont douche or use other chemical, have sex--this messes with the balance as well---and see if it resolves it self. If you get a fever seek medical help as well.

  35. QUESTION:
    What are some fast remedies for a urinary tract infection?
    I've had one for about a week now, and I'd like a quick and easy cure. Any suggestions? I have D-Mennose powder, but the taste is just awful. For Cranberry juice, can it have sugar in it? Or is that a no-no? So far, I've been getting by by using my mom's old stand-by of applying Noxzema (spelling?) cream "down there"--which relieves the urge to go and the uncomfortable feeling that urinary tract infections have.
    Anyway, how can I be rid of this? And can cranberry juice have sugar in it? (My mom says no, it'll add to the likelihood of getting a yeast infection. Is that true?)
    Thanks, all!

    • ANSWER:
      Antibiotics are the only thing to get rid of a UTI. SEE YOUR DOCTOR! All of the stuff you are doing now is making it worse. Eventually since you are not treating it correctly it will end up in the kidneys and it will be 100 times worse and could put you in the hospital and very sick.

  36. QUESTION:
    Mange QUICK!?
    I am freaking out. I have a 3 month old baby, and we have both had a round of thrush (fungal infection of mouth/breast, also known as oral yeast infection). It lasted for almost 3 months. I got treated, so did my baby.

    NOW I am afraid my doggie (1 and a half year old chihuahua) has Mange or Thrush or some kind of skin fungus and I am GROSSED OUT AND PANICKING because I don't know how I'm going to get rid of it.

    I CANNOT afford a vet's visit. I repeat, CANNOT do it AT ALL at least not for an entire MONTH I am that broke. IS there any way possible that I can treat this at home, with any kind of anything at all??? For my baby and me, we had to use Gentian Violet, vinegar rinses, bleach our clothing and bedding, sterilize everything after EVERY use, etc. etc. and it STILL lingered. I am so grossed out. MY house is moldy old trailer (like 50 years old) and I don't have alot of hot water, it only lasts for 4 minutes.

    Please please help us quick! Or I will have to giver away!
    Must add... I really don't WANT to give my dog up, but I am really not sure If I can treat this on my own and I don't want her to die or something because of it, and I certainly can't deal with the pain and frustration of having another fungal infection myself, and WILL NOT put my baby through it again. If there is no easy fix, THEN WHAT???

    And please dont' tell me how I shouldn't have had a baby or dog if I can't take care of them> I didn't know this was going to happen, that I would be living in a small dingy place, etc. etc. Life happens, and so forth.
    I COULD FUCKING AFFORD HER WHEN I GOT HER MY LIFE WENT TO HELL SINCE THEN AND I LOST EVERYTHING EXCEPT HER. THIS IS WHY I HAVE HER, NOT BECAUSE I AM STUPID AND DON'T CARE ABOUT TAKING CARE OF MY PETS. BUT I guess I will have to give her away. This breaks my heart, I can't believe I am in this situation and CAN'T HELP HER.
    I am living in a moldy trailer because it was that or nothing.

    I suppose living on the street would be the better alternative.

    i don't have any other choice.

    No family, no friends. Nothing.

    And yes, I am going to go give my dog away now. Thanks. Suppose I should give my baby up too.

    And then I'll go commit myself.

    • ANSWER:
      You know what people she is asking for help not your own personal opinion. Try keeping them to yourselves and just try to help her. Like she said life happens, get over it. She is doing the best that she can!

      I am so sorry to hear about your dog getting mange. Right now I would wash all bedding/brushes, groom, and bathe your dog regularly. Also if it is bothering him (the itching) you can try an OTC antihistamine cream to put on the localized area. Also if you can afford it, try getting a mite killing powder (may also contain ingredients to kill ticks and fleas) and place that on your carpet. This will help keep from an even bigger mite problem (the little parasites that cause mange in the first place). If you don't have the money to buy that simple table salt should work for carpets and bedding (I know it works on lice). This should be good enough until you are able to get your dog into the vet.

  37. QUESTION:
    girls only?
    whats the quickest/best way to get rid of a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      If you dont want to go to the doctor, the drug store has the 3 day cream things, I wouldnt go with the 1 day cream though.

      If this is your first infection I would however call the doctor. Or call the doctor if you are taking any medications or anything is wrong with you health wise.

      If you get the cream remember to read the whole paper thing, not just the directions because all those words aint just there for nothing :P

      Good Luck!

  38. QUESTION:
    what if...?
    what if you have a yeast infection and then dont get rid of it quick

    can you become infertile

    and how long will it be until you become infertile with it or having trouble to conceive

    • ANSWER:
      Not sure about the infertile thing, but it can give you a urinary tract infection that can lead to a kidney infection.

  39. QUESTION:
    How can you tell?? *plus there's more than 1 question in here.?
    I wanna know what the symptoms r for a yeast infection.and if i have one then how can u get rid of it??
    oh and also whats a quick easy way to get rid of stretch marks i have them on my thighs and a little on my boobs.

    • ANSWER:
      Symptoms for a yeast infection are burning and itching and sometimes a thick discharge. There are non-prescription medications you can use (ask your pharmacist) or your doctor can prescribe something stronger.

      Stretch marks don't go away. Over time they will become silvery and less noticable. There are over the counter cremes that are supposed to help with scarring, but I haven't personally found any that really do anything for stretch marks. Your best bet us to use cocoa butter or vitamin E oil to help prevent them, once they're there, they're there to stay.

  40. QUESTION:
    Two quick question...really need serious answers.?
    1. I had a yeast infection & someone told me to put yogurt on a pad and wear it for a little while. This gets rid of the bad bacteria & adds good bacteria. My question is does anyone know how long I should wear the pad & how often I should do this (by the way I'm pregnant- that's why I'm not doing monistat)

    2. After having sex, my tummy feels like I've done 1000 situps, is that normal. Also, even if we weren't extreme or rough and took our time during intercourse, I'm still exhausted, is that normal too.

    Thanks!! No rude or stupid comments, please.

  41. QUESTION:
    Help I'm so Itchy I can't take it!!!!!?
    I'm on this antibiotic for a sinus infection that i have and I'm pretty sure it caused the yeast infection I just got over to come back, except it's alot worse now. I've been up all night cause this itch is driving me crazy and I've put monistat cream on it and usually that helps but not this time, I also just recently started my period and it won't be over for a few more days, should I wear tampons or pads since I have a yeast infection? which one would be better? Also is there anything I could get that would get rid of this quick it's hard to use monistat since I'm on my period and I don't think the insertion type monistat would work well. Is there an oral pill that I could get over the counter that would make this go away, having this along with my period and being pretty sick is more than i can take, I'm miserable, someone please help me....

    • ANSWER:
      Diflucan comes in a pill, but you have to get a prescription from your doctor for it.

      I would wear pads rather than tampons while you have the yeast infection.

  42. QUESTION:
    whats this rash between my legs?
    wow this sounds like a question that would be the name of a book - like "whats happening to my body: book for boys" lol inside joke but in any case i'm a guy but i dont think that matters cuz its not touching my privates, its just where the leg meets the groin... like where the bikini line is on women. Its red and it burns like you wouldn't believe when i walk. I've had it once before and my step dad at the time knew what it was right away and gave me some cream for it - i think HE said something about a yeast infection but i looked that up and i can't find anything about them in that area - but we haven't been on talking terms for a couple of years so i can't really ask him. so what the heck is this and how do i get rid of it. answer quick pls, i gotta take my gf to an appointment in an hour
    looked up what other people were saying on this subject on y! answers. isn't from friction because i haven't done a whole lot of walking lately and I'm not fat. isn't dermatitis cuz it doesn't itch. isn't a heat rash because its not blistering/bumpy

    • ANSWER:
      Because dermatology is a visual science, it would have been better for you to have included a clear picture of the rash, if you truly wanted a real answer. There are several conditions which can occur in that area, ranging from candida to intertrigo to psoriasis to tinea cruris to seborrheic dermatitis to rarer items such as Hailey-Hailey. The treatment would obviously be determined by the real diagnosis.

  43. QUESTION:
    This is an emergency! PLEASE ANSWER!!!?
    Okay, sunday I thought I had a yeast infection and so I got the one day quick package you buy at the store to get rid of it. And just 20 min. ago I got discharge that was clumpy and pink and it freaked me out! I need a doctors advice! Do I have herpes?!?! mt cervix on the inside and on the outside feels itchy and irritating, not really burning and I'm freaking out please help me!

    • ANSWER:
      It doesn't sound like herpes, but you may have picked up one of several types of infections. It may even be the yeasty beasties again, if it's resistant to the stuff you bought OTC. Call your GYN for an appointment or go to a clinic and have it checked, and stop freaking out. It never helps.

  44. QUESTION:
    I'm only 13 weeks and having HORRIBLE back pain?
    I'm only 13 weeks pregnant and for about a month now i've been having such bad back pain that there's some nights i can't even sleep cuz no matter how i lay i'm in horrible pain. Sometimes when i wake up i can barely walk or sit down it hurts so bad. I told my ob about it and she just said it was pain from my uterus growing but this seems a little extreme. I've never in my life been in this much pain and I told her that and she seemed to think it wasn't a big deal. Am i worrying too much? Has this happened to anyone else? Also I got my first ever yeast infection last week and i've heard this happens alot to pregnant women. What causes them and whats the quickest way to get rid of them? Thanks!!!
    Also I did go to the doctor for the yeast infection and they gave me medication for it but i was just asking for future reference cuz i've some people have told me they got them multiple times during pregnancy and this stuff takes 7 days and thats a long time lol

    • ANSWER:
      Well i am 6 months pregnant and i completely understand you because i went through the same thing about the same time as you, And still do. I was having some terrible back and lower stomach pains and i even felt that my behind was also hurting. I also told my doctor but all she told me to do was take Tylenol regular, it did help with some pains. What also helps alot maybe more than Tylenol is a massage in the areas that hurt. Tell your partner or someone to give you a massage or rub in the areas that hurt. Tylenol+Massage, should help ease your pains alot more(:

      Congrats on your baby!

  45. QUESTION:
    help from a woman please?
    so yesterday i shaved my downstairs area for the first time, and not only do i have terrible razor burn, but im SO itchy down there. i think i have a yeast infection but its not burning or anything... what is going on? how do i get rid of the itching? i am going away tomorrow and i really need a quick solution.
    thanks!
    its not itchy on the exterior, but on the interior

    • ANSWER:
      it's not a yeast infection trust me. All it is is that that area is sensitive. Usually the first time you shave down there it gets like that because its the first time. After it grows back a little it will feel better. You can always use lotion for rashes it always works.

    okay I do not go fast and I have tried a condom it does not work it makes her dry out faster. If I go too slow then its less enjoyable for her. That's why I would not mind being bigger please help me please. By the way during her period was her idea it hurts too much and I hate the shower I do it but hot water don't last long. She bleeds A LOT. For 3 days then light. And another thing I am not giving her yeast infections that she gets because of not enough lube and if we do it more then once I have to wait a week because she is too darn sore. I can only have 2 to 3 times a week that's why I want to last longer!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      1) have either one of you consulted your doctor about your issue? maybe he/ she has something that you could take or a lube that wouldn't interfere with her.
      2) ask a pharmacist what they would recommend
      3) when going at it and you find yourself about to explode slow up a minute and think of some off the wall $h^t that will help you relax so that you can go longer. (unless her moms hot lookin. think about her mom watching you two or something like that)
      you just need to learn self control and good luck to you and your wife

  47. QUESTION:
    I have a feminine problem and wanted to know if anyone might know the cause?
    for 4 week i have had unusual intermittent cramps. they almost remind me of an ovarian cyst but not quite. usually i only notice during intercourse but sometimes they just happen. they really quick(almost instantaneous) and make my knees buckle. also i have noticed a really bad smell. my husband says he hasn't but i have very strongly. I can't seem to get rid of it. i even tried douching and all it did was give me a yeast infection. the infection is gone now but the smell and the cramps aren't. I'm also late. but the tests come up negative. (we have been trying) i have an appointment with the dr. but it's not for a week. i could do a walk-in and be seen tomorrow but we're night shift so that means losing sleep which i'd rather not do. i've never had a problem like this before. the closest i've come has been cysts. anyone got an idea what it might be?

    • ANSWER:
      You may have a bacterial infection, they can cause cramping and an odour.

  48. QUESTION:
    Daktarin Cream effective for thrush?
    I had it before (vaginal thrush) and managed to get rid of it (or so i thought) with Canasten cream and oral pill.

    It came back roughly 2 months later less severe but very irritating, i bought Canastan cream and used that everyday hopeing it would clear up, but all the cream did was lessen the irritation. (Also a odd side note, i dont seem to feel the irritation until late afternoon/early evening)

    Finally i went to the doctors and was prescribed Daktarin Cream which i have to apply twice daily externally.

    Ive only been using it for three days so im still waiting for it to kick in properly (and i know i have to use it until the irritation stops AND THEN carry on using it for 10 days).

    My question is

    Will just a external cream get rid of it?? I was really suprised there wasnt a pill to go with the cream, as i was under the impression that yeast infections came from internal infections, so shouldnt there be an internal medicine to go with it?

    I just want this completely cured and im praying that the doctor didnt just fob me off with a quick temporary fix and have the thrush come back again in a few months.

    Thankyou to anyone who can help x

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, external cream is just silencing the symptoms. You need to target the source of the infection, which is inside the vagina. You need both the cream and the pessaries. Keep using both until the packs are empty (the entire dose).. also get some probiotic capsules from the pharmacy which are tiny little capsules filled with good bacteria that you insert in the vagina after finishing the course of treatment. The treatment will have killed good as well as bad bacteria so its important to use these probiotic capsules to put the good bacteria back, otherwise you risk getting another infection right away. You need to make sure that the pH of the vagina is correct to avoid thrush and at night try to sleep without underwear,especially while treating thrush, because your vagina needs to ''breathe''.

      A friend of mine had this same problem, his wife is hot. He applied Numbsit to his apparatus before jumping into the sack. It is normally used for oral pain and can be purchased at a drug store. No doubt your wife is hot also. Hope it works. There may be commercial made products available at a adult book store that you can check into also.


Get Rid Of Yeast Infection Garlic

Written By: admin - Feb• 20•12

If you are reading this article then I can tell that you are interested on how to get rid of yeast infection. If you are, then please read on. In this article I will be talking about how you can get rid of yeast infections at the comfort of your own home.

Have you ever tried of getting rid of a yeast infection? I mean really getting rid of it? If you have, you know how difficult it can be, I bet you have tried every cream and ointment your doctor has prescribed, and yes it may work for a few weeks and then what, the infection comes back again, worse than before. The reason for this my suffering friends is you are not removing the root cause of the infection; you are just simply masking the infection with those creams and ointments. In order for you to totally eradicate yeast infection, you should remove it from the roots.

The infection is actually caused by a fungi that is part of our body, the fungi is called Candida Albicans. Now this type of fungi is usually dormant and not harmful, but if your body is going through a major imbalance, like you got sick, you're pregnant or even just your usual monthly period, it can trigger the overgrowth of the of fungus, and if that happens it will definitely result to an infection.

Now below are just some simple home remedies you can use to get rid of yeast infection at home.

Buy some apple cider vinegar if you don't have one in your house, mix it up in water and then use that to wash and clean the infected area. Apple cider has a lot of anti bacterial properties that can help kill the fungus.

In your neighborhood supermarket get some plain yogurt; don't get the sweetened one because sugar is the main food of the infection. Now get a tampon and plunge it into the yogurt, once the tampon has soaked up the yogurt, insert in inside your vagina. The good bacteria in yogurt will help fight off the fungus that causes the infection.

Loosen up your underwear. Now this last tip is actually more of practice rather than a home remedy. But since the fungus thrives on wet and damp parts of our body, it is advisable that you wear loose comfortable clothing. Choose clothes that let your skin breathe and let your perspiration evaporate. Try not to wear tight leather pants or clothes that can get in contact with the infected area.

Now the above home remedies are very powerful, but you need to know how to use them properly for them to be very effective.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Has anyone used garlic to get rid of a vaginal yeast infection?
    I only want to hear from people who have.
    Do not tell me to go to the doctors, I've already been.
    If you're going to leave negative comments then don't bother.

    So anyways, I have a really really mild vaginal yeast infection and was wondering if putting a garlic clove up your vagina actually works?!
    Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      It usually works yes....just make sure it is large enough...as big as the top section of your thumb etc...peel it and cut some slash marks into it before inserting. Insert about half way. Do this before bedtime...90% of the time it almost falls out in the morning, otherwise you'd have to remove it yourself etc. Do it for at least 5 nights. Stay off sugar and you can also take some acidophilus (health food stores)

  2. QUESTION:
    Is it true you can cure a yeast infection with garlic?
    I was reading this question someone had asked about natural home remedies for getting rid of a yeast infection. One lady said to leave a clove of garlic in your vagina overnight. Does that really work?

    • ANSWER:
      I would not use a whole glove of garlic, but you take the garlic sections and skin them and thread some string through the tops and insert them overnight and pull on the sting to remove what is left. Some people will insert yogurt but this needs to be plain live active yogurt from the health and natural department. Eating alot of this yogurt should be a regular part of diet. Eat lots of fruits and veg.
      You need to know if your body had a yest infection and why- we have a natural amount of yeast in our bodies and sometimes people have an excessive amount of it. I would suggest taking acidophilus 5 billion - milk free with FOS. This will help put the natural flora back into you system and help control the situation. Also drink alot of fluids. If it continues and becomes bothersome then it is time to see the doctor but continue taking the acidophilus. Hope that heps

  3. QUESTION:
    getting rid of a stubborn vaginal yeast infection? garlic?
    i am scared to shove a whole clove of garlic up there so i bought some garlic pill capsules with a gelatin capsule and put in up there to melt inside of me. do you think this will work? and i do not want to hear any lectures........in the pasti used monistat, terazole, diflucan, gynazole, genitian violet, boric acid, vinegar douches & baths, tea tree oil suppositories, yogurt suppositories, probiotic pills, nystatin, lavander oil baths, baking soda baths, witch hazel compresses, hydrogen peroxide douches, eating goldenseal, grapefruit seed extract cranberries, .........nothing works anymore i am drug resistant. so i never tried the garlic idea before. think it is any good? remember that i only bought the pills because i am uneasy of shoveing a garlic clove up there!!! any ideas?

    im not a diabetic or HIV positive and i have been to 10 different obgyns and a herbalist. i think this just may be how i must live my life

    • ANSWER:
      I'm assuming you have already been to the doctor, because it may not be a yeast infection. Also, you need to go to the dr because having constant infections is usually related to another illness. Are you diabetic? Especially if all those things you have tried don't work. If those didn't work, the garlic probably won't either. This is not normal.

    • ANSWER:
      Hello there mimi.

      You can cure yeast infection naturally, 100% guaranteed
      You can do it with ZERO risk
      It can be done in a short time.

      Still, along with the natural treatment, please try to :
      Keep the genital area clean and dry.
      Avoid harsh soaps (including bubble bath).
      Wear loose cotton (rather than nylon) underwear that doesn't hold moisture.
      Take antibiotics only when prescribed by your doctor, and never take them for longer than your doctor tells you to.
      If you are diabetic, try to control your blood sugar levels.
      These would prevent from yeast infection to happen.
      But for now you may try the 100% treatment I found in the below source and tried it myself... it worked ...

    how can i tell if my yeast infection is gone?
    and what size garlic clove should i use? i was thinking a small sized one because apparently if you use a large one its too much and it'll burn or something.. lol

    • ANSWER:
      Some people swear that garlic is more effective than modern antibiotics and can cure any infection plus ward off vampires. Don't try it. Highly NOT recommended.

      Get some monistat (miconazole) from the store, don't experiment with something like this, it really is not worth it.

    • ANSWER:
      I'd be more weary of the capsules. gelatin capsules would make it worse I think. Cause gelatin is a form of sugar.

      Remember the garlic clove can't get lost in your vagina. and You don't stick it very far up. Just and inch or 2 up.

      You could tie a string to the clove before you put it in.

  9. QUESTION:
    Getting rid of mild yeast infection very quickly? ?
    I caught it really early but I have mild yeast infection. If I use garlic, yogurt, and nystatin throughout the day , could it go away today? Or is it one of those things that always need time? Please answer my specific question. I don't need to know names of other medications.

    • ANSWER:
      Fluconazole is the best for immediate relief but if you cannot go to the doctor, try one of the over the counter creams, like Monistat. Then buy some probiotics from your local health food store and take them regularly to keep yeast infections from coming back. Make sure to buy a probiotic with several strands of acidophilus. It must also be kept cold. If you buy it from a store that doesn't keep it cold, it will most likely not work. The acidophilus dies in warmth and humidity.

      You need to go to the doctor hun...it may not be a yeast infection, and if it is using garlic has not been proved to do anything to help...regardless of what you have heard or read...it is a common remedy, but if you want to use something simple for a yeast infection just try plain white yogurt. Use a syringe and inject it into your vagina before bed every night for a week...this should help because it restores the balance of the good bacteria inside of the vagina, which should be a slightly acidic environment...yeast thrive in a basic environment, so try not to use anything that would change the pH of the vagina, such as creams, scented tampons and pads, feminine sprays etc...best thing to do is go to the doctor and get a wet prep test done to confirm the presence or absence of yeast. A Diflucan pill will cure that most of the time, otherwise you could have a bacterial infection, either sexually transmitted or not...in which you need antibiotics...DO NOT take antibiotics for a yeast infection...it is a fungal infection...you need an anti-fungal cure...best of luck and take care!

    does garlic salt help get rid of yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      No, try Monistat.

  14. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection?
    I tried putting powder garlic in water making it some what solid and put it in my vagina and then a minute layer it was insanely burning! Burning so bad It was hard to breath! Any other suggestions?? (that dont burn)

    • ANSWER:
      Garlic burns so does garlic juice, so even if you peel a garlic you have to be really careful. Garlic never worked for me. Neither did tree tea oil. You can eat a lot of yogurt or take probiotics, but those didn't work for me either.

      Make sure you have a yeast infection.

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching
      Buy Monistat 7 over-the-counter

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva
      See a doctor

  15. QUESTION:
    Cure to COMPLETELY get rid of yeast infection?
    First of all, I am 100% sure this is a yeast infection, I had it confirmed by a doctor. I've had a constant yeast infection for almost two years, so I'm going to go ahead and say it's pretty severe! I've tried Diflucan I believe it's called. I took one prescription pill and it did nothing, so I was put on them for a month, and it still did not get rid of it. I also used a kind of topical cream that you have to deposit in the vagina, I was on that twice, and it did nothing, and I used Canestan and Monistat too with no luck. I don't have the worst diet. I do indulge in unhealthy foods here and there but I have a good amount of fruits and veggie's in my diet. I heard that garlic may help, but something about putting a garlic clove in my vagina seems a bit...wrong :P My reasoning is that if I tried all of those prescription medications then why the h#!! would garlic work!?! However I eat a lot of yogurt and I take garlic tablets to get it in my system. Does anybody have any medications or natural remedies that worked, or has anybody had a severe yeast infection and gotten rid of it? I am absolutely tired of it!

    • ANSWER:
      Umm, this sounds very serious. U need to be on no sugar stick diet forabout one month to see any results. Sugar is bad it feeds the candida, I am assuming u have low energy level which shows why ur immune system is in disarray. Anyway 1 on sugar in any form including sweet fruits and fruit juices. Only on vegetal diet I suggest yellow to orange collie veggies like pumpkin, carrot and so on. Good to have Greek or plain yoghurt but remember only in day time. Garlic is a immunity booster it helps taken in crushed from while eating. Email me if u see some results I can perscribe u sOme herbs later

  16. QUESTION:
    How to I get rid of a recurrent yeast infection?
    I have had a recurrent yeast infection for over a year now. Every time I go to the doctor she gives me Diflucan. Half the time she tells me I also have "a lil BV" so she gives me antibiotics too! Antibiotics CAUSE yeast infections. I've stopped going to the doctor because she doesn't listen to me and doesn't think it's a big deal. Well it is just ask my amazing boyfriend who has been dealing with this with me! It's never really terrible, but its just enough to mess up everything. I know that its yeast and not anything else because I've been tested for EVERYTHING. I've tried Diflucan, Monistat, Gyne-Lotrimin, Yeast clenses, garlic, apple cider vinegar, and many homopathic supplements including probiotics... NOTHING WORKS! I'm at the end of the rope and I just don't know what else to do.

    The worst thing about this is that I believe my doctor caused it. I went in for my yearly and she said I had "discharge" everything seemed normal to me, but she did a test and said I had BV and a yeast infection. She prescribed me antibiotics and Diflucan. I didn't know whether or not to take them, but I heard that BV causes PID so I didn't want to take any chances. Ever since then I've been battling this yeast infection! Modern medicine is a joke. Everyone is just trying to make a buck and no one cares. I know I sound bitter, but this is ridiculous. I really just wish it would go away I'm about to have a nervous break down over freakin yeast infection.. Grrrr...

    How do i get rid of my recurring yeast infection.?
    Alright! So i have had a recurring yeast infection for over a year now. I have been to 3 different regular doctors. A infection doctor. A gynecologist. and a specialist doctor. Which all of them say all my levels everythings okay with me but they dont know why my yeast infection wont go away. i have tried monistat, diflucan, gynsing violet, boric acid, garlic, diet, no underwear, cranberry juice, bath with apple cider vinegar. I just feel like i am never going to get rid of them and the doctors dont know how to help me. Can someone please HELP ME!!!!

    I am 19 years old. Please be respectful with your answers I don't know what else to do and I am willing to try anything.

    Thanks So much
    And i am not diabetic, have aids, have a std, or anything like that i have been checked multiple times. I am also not having sex because it hurts to bad. and not worth the pain.
    I dont have it on my feet, mouth or anywhere else. I think I am going to try the diet. Its seems like the only option for me. I really hope it works. I just get so frustrated and feel like its never going to go away. I have been having them off and on since i been 10. I have very very sensitive skin i dont know if that might be a possibility.
    What do people think about sticking a garlic clove up there over night??? Believe that is safe??? Im still young and just dont want to ruin my chances to having kids.

    • ANSWER:
      I feel bad you have to go through with all that. I've also had recurring yeast infection for several years and tried everything. And OTC drugs and prescription drugs (diflucan) don't work for me anymore.

      Recently, I've tried the candida diet. No simple carbs and sugars for at least 4 weeks to 3 months. Yeah, it's hard. No fruit either. No vinegar, soy sauce, wine, cheese, etc. You mostly eat protein such as beef, chicken, fish, etc. and lots and lots of vegetables except for potato and corn plus some whole grain. I'm sure you can get a detailed list on the web. This diet really worked for me. After the first week, I had no symptoms. I am still on it going on for about a month.

      If you need immediate relief from yeast infection, try yeast arrest. It's a homeopathic formula with boric acid and tea tree oil. It works for me.

      The candida diet is difficult since you can't have cake, ice cream, etc. but it works because you are starving the yeast in your body, eventually killing them. And the infection won't come back.

      It also helps to take Candidastat by Vitanica as a supplement while in the diet.

  19. QUESTION:
    Is Diflucan or any other oral yeast infection medication available over the counter?
    I am looking for oral yeast infection medications that are available over the counter. I don't have a regular doctor and do not have the time to go this week. Or, are there any non medicinal ways to treat a yeast infection. I started eating some yogurt and drinking cranberry juice. I have eaten a clove of garlic once before to get rid of a bladder infection. Does that work the same for yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      In relation to oral yeast medications like Diflucan and Nystatin, no they are not over the counter as of yet. The eating of the yogurt will help with treating the yeast infection. The reason it does is because it has good cultures called lactobacilli which helps keep the vagina and even the intestinal (yep, one can have a yeast problem in their intestines) tract running smoothly.

      If you suspect that you have a yeast infection I would recommend seeing a dr to have them evaluate the situation before trying to self treat. If money is an issue check with the city health dept to see if they offer free health clinics. If not check with a Medical School if there is one close by. You can also ask the dr if they offer samples of the Diflucan to help cut on some of the cost of the medication.

  20. QUESTION:
    can i use goldenseal pills daily to help get rid of my yeast infection?
    and why can you only take it for 2 weeks and then have to go off of it for 2 weeks, i also take garlic pills, cranberry pills, azo yeast pills, and 2 different types of probiotics and i still get yeast infections all the time. so im wondering if the goldenseal might help a little. p.s i have been to 9 different obgys and none help or or know what to do with me, so im trying things out on my own to try to improve my health.

    • ANSWER:
      herbs work best when given a "rest''. As an outside person, unprofessional may I suggest yes to the goldenseal and Oil of Oregano capsules. This is a suggestion and not medical advice. Do your homework on Oregano and find out the anti-biotical effects of it.

      Olive Leaf Extract also.

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your local super marker and get some Monistat cream. I don't recommend the 1 day dosage, it's really strong and burned me, I itched worse! Get either the 3 or 7-day package. I've heard vinegar is supposed to help, but never tried it myself. Best bet is to get the Monistat!

  23. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection today (Thursday) prom Saturday. How can I get rid of it in time?
    really got it Tuesday but wasn't sure if it was really a yeast infection because I had no discharge and the symptomes weren't as bad as they have been before. I need to het rid of this, or at least the symptomes by Saturday. I'm taking a pill that is supposed to help, and I would do the monostat thing but I don't wanna be discharging anything at the dance. Any suggestions? Oh and I've cut out most sugar and am doing the probiotic stuff which is supposed to help. I also had a whole cooked garlic clove. I've done everything I can think of. I'm willing to try anything at this point!

    • ANSWER:
      The doctor should have prescribed fluconazole. It is a 1 tablet dose, and it should start working within about 24-30 hours. However, it will take longer for the infection to go away. I don't think you will be ready for the post prom intercourse by Saturday night. Unfortunately, there is nothing over the counter that will improve your symptoms any faster than the prescribed fluconazole tablet.

  24. QUESTION:
    Which is better for treating a systemic yeast infection?
    I'm contemplating going to the doctor and getting a prescription drug to get rid of my systemic yeast infection (It's all over my intestines). At the same time, I think it would be better to just eat a ton of garlic. I've been making garlic smoothies for the past 2 days and I've already noticed some improvement. I'm also taking probiotics with every meal. But would getting a prescription drug for the infection be faster?

    Which IS faster in getting rid of the infection? Prescription drugs, or probiotic/garlic combo? Is the naturopathic method foolproof? I don't want to waste a month doing something that will not even help!

    yeast infection,help?
    Ok lately I have the annoying itch that won't leave me alone, and according to what I look up it might be an yeast infection. No irregular odor or discharge just an annoying itch. I'm more certain its an yeast infection than a STD. What makes me think so is that i recently loose my virginity, well to be exact on August 12, 2008!. To my boyfriend well which is now my ex, so i only had one sexual partner. I guess he is clean I trust him in that. cause he have few test that he took and he is clean. So am more base on the yeast infection
    Just today I start useing the garlic as i was told to.
    I shove a hand of the garlic up my vagina, i guess for a couple of hours. Will this get rid of my yeast infection? and how long should I do this for it to be completely gone? since I shove the yeast up my vagina am not feeling the itch.when i walk the garlic keep coming out, do you think it need to go more up?
    any advice would work?

    • ANSWER:
      I think you are better off to go to a Doctor, just to be on the save side. Don't try and diagnose yourself, sometimes you may end up doing more harm than good. You need to know exactly what symptom it is in order to treat it. and since you nor I are doctors, I suggest you really see a specialist. I hope it is nothing serious.

  26. QUESTION:
    HELP!!!NO CRAP!!!How can I get rid of my reoccuring yeast infections?
    I am almost sixteen and since I was twelve I kept getting reoccurring yeast infections. I used all types of creams, pills, i took garlic pills, taken acedolpholis,eaten kefir yogurt, all types of yogurt, eaten less sugar, I bathed in vinegar. What am I supposed to do!?! Can someone that has had the same problem and the problem went away just tell me what to do for heaven's sake!

    • ANSWER:
      Have you seen a doctor? There could be a medical reason you are having them so often. It may not even be a yeast infection. There are other types of infections that have similar symptoms, and the over-the-counter yeast medications aren't going to cure those.

      If it is truly a yeast infection, it could be from the use of tampons, especially the scented kind. It could be from the type of underwear you wear. It could be from some food you are eating. There are so many reasons to consider. I would definitely consult an MD or a GYN.

    Probiotic yogurt brands? yeast infection?
    So i'm trying to get rid of my yeast infection and i cant find any yogurts that are probiotic. like who sells probiotic yogurt...any brands? and i know to douche with vinegar and to drink cranberry juice anndddd garlic helps too? any suggestions!? and what worked for you to cure your yeast infection????

    • ANSWER:
      Plain yogurt of almost any brand is a good source of Acidophilus if you are not lactose intolerant. Plain yogurt can be consumed or inserted into the vagina to relieve the symptoms of a yeast infection.

      You can use vaginal suppositories or creams that are sold in stores over the counter without a prescription. Many women report that these products can help during a yeast infection. Remember that the dryer you can make your vaginal area the better. Towel dry and use a blow dryer after baths. Consider washing your under clothing, panties, pantyhose, tights etc. in Dawn dish washing liquid. Dawn dish washing liquid has an additive that is very good at killing Candida Albicans.

      http://www.ehow.com/how_4750775_yeast-infection-cures.html

      Here are some things that you should try to avoid when fighting a yeast infection:

      Taking birth control pills - Birth control pills weaken the immune system, making you succeptable to yeast.
      Taking antibiotics - Antibiotics also weaken the immune system.
      Douching - Douching can upset the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina.
      Feminine deodorants - These can be very irritating to anyone, especially those with yeast infections.
      Non-cotton underwear - Any underwear made of man-made fibers is not breathable, as cotton is. They trap moisture and heat, creating a perfect environment for yeast.
      Clothing that is tight in the crotch - Tight clothing also creates a warm environment for yeast to grow.
      Sitting in a wet bathing suit for a prolonged period - This creates not only a warm environment, but a moist one, as well. Perfect for yeast growth!
      Pantyhose - Tight, man-made fiber that also allows yeast to flourish.
      Foods that feed yeast - Avoid sugar, yeast, refined foods (such as white flour).

  29. QUESTION:
    What natural remedies help with a systemic yeast infection?
    I am suffering with a systemic yeast infection and was wondering what natural remedies (eg. supplements, tinctures, herbs, vitamins/ minerals) could help me to get rid of the excess yeast in my system. I already know the following helps:
    Yeast free diet
    Garlic
    Probiotics
    Grapeseed extract
    Apple-cider vinegar

    I realise that there is no out right 'cure' but suggestions of anything that could help would be most appreciated.

    Please remember im asking about SYSTEMIC (internal) yeast infection; not a vaginal, vulval or oral infection

    @Natpractitioner - FYI a yeast-free diet includes a sugar free diet

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, those 5 are exactly it.
      I would first suggest a high dose of Probiotics (like 6-10 billion viable organisms or more) with at least 4-6 different strains of probiotics. If you take that with the other 3 supplements, you should feel better hopefully very soon (maybe a few weeks or so, depending on how bad it is). The garlic is a great agent to fight the year, the ACV is a great cleanser, and the grapeseed is a fantastic antioxidant for protection.
      And yes, you're right... a yeast-free (and sugar free) diet would be one of your best steps in addition to the probiotics. Good luck!

  30. QUESTION:
    how to treat a yeast infection?
    ok so heres the deal. I have had the burning and itching for a little over three weeks now. i went to my doctor and ob gyn which they told me to try over counter medication. I tried vagisil but it only irritated my skin and temporarily covered the symptoms. I am now using this cream in which you put it into a tube and insert it into the vagina but as soon as its in it starts to sting. ive searched all over the internet for solutions but they always say insert a curd covered tampon or garlic into the vagina. ihave never used a tampon before so i am too afraid to do that. there are also books being sold on how to get rid of a yeast infection but i just want a solution without wasting all my money on books and over the counter medications. please please please provide help!!! i can never sleep at night because of this infection and i just want it over and done with. i know yogurt and hat apple cider vinegar may work but i need to know what works 100% and quick because this is TORTURE!!!
    oh the stuff im using right now is miconazole 7 or something like that. i was wondering, if it stings when its in, does it mean its working or should i stop using it all together because after it started stinging the burn and itch became less severe

    • ANSWER:
      Ok So first go to your Gyno to get a medication to help relieve the symptoms and combat the yeast infection FAST.

      A yeast infection occurs when the pH of your vagina is changed which allows the yeast to overgrow
      It can be caused by:
      Wearing a wet bathing suit for too long, using a douche which kills the normal/harmless bacteria living in your vagina, using an antibiotic that kills the normal bacteria that live in your vagina that Prevent the growth of harmful bacteria OR yeast.

      The bacteria that lives on your body is called "normal flora" and they actually help you to prevent bad bacteria or yeast/fungus to take over and cause you harm. So you don't want to get rid of them.

      That is why Yogurt is actually GOOD to eat all the time everyday to PREVENT new yeast infections, help regulate your digestive system, etc.. Eating yogurt replaces some of the normal Flora bacteria that keep your vagina healthy and return it to it's normal pH.

      Avoid: keeping bating suits or wet clothing on for too long, douching (you should only wash the inside of the vagina with water; outside with mild soap), and taking too many antibiotics.

  31. QUESTION:
    Chronic yeast infection over the last 2 months.. Any suggestions?
    I have had a yeast infection off and on for the past 2 months. I've had yeast infections in the past, so I know that's what I have now. I have tried everything to get rid of it! I am showering every night, washing with baby wash (figured that would be good, since it's ph balanced), drying everything really good. I wear cotton underwear during the day and no underwear at night. I'm taking Accuflora (probiotics) and AZO Yeast and odorless garlic gel-caps (supposedly a good natural antibiotic). I've done several courses of 7-day yeast cream, which always help but then a week later the infection is raging again. I've been eating yogurt like crazy and even tried the plain organic yogurt up inside, which also helps but only temporarily.... I don't know what else to do!! I am so sick of this burning/itching/raw feeling!!

    I've been racking my brain trying to think of what might have triggered this to begin with, 2 months ago. At first I thought it was this flavored lubricant I'd used but I haven't used that in about 2 weeks now and still have the yeast infection. Now I'm wondering if it has something to do with the condoms I've been using (Lifestyle), because I started using them about 2 months ago. Also, about 2 months ago, I started taking Prilosec for acid reflux. As far as I know that doesn't have any bad side effects but who knows? Oddly enough, I've also had a mild sore throat, only on the left side of my throat, for these same 2 months. I feel like that's not a coincidence..

    So does anyone have any thoughts on what might be causing this recurring infection? Or any other tricks for getting rid of it? I do not have insurance and have no extra money at the moment to go to the doctor, so please don't suggest that. I would've already gone if I could!
    Yes, I am sexually active, although not nearly as much as I'd like to be because the infection kinda ruins it.
    Also, I forgot to mention that I'm diabetic, which doesn't help with the sugar situation at all, I know. I do try to limit my sugar intake though.

    • ANSWER:
      One thing you can do is cut out the sugar in your diet. Yeast thrive off of sugar. Also, avoid foods like ketchup and anything that has been fermented, because this also feeds yeast. Try reading Anne Louis Gittleman's book Fat Flush For Life. There is a good section in there about yeast infections.

      The Prilosec may be the culprit. I have a friend who was taking that and had terrible yeast infections. You could also make an appointment with a Natropath and see what they can do to help you. The Natropath prescribed a course of action for her, which helped her get off of the Prilosec, and then the yeast infection subsided. Hopefully, there are Natropaths in your area which you can contact.

  32. QUESTION:
    yeast infection?
    i have a question about yeast infection. is it curable?

    and are any of these are true and safe to use to get rid of it?

    Home Remedies for Treating Yeast Infection
    Vaginal yeast infection can either be cured orally or by vaginal insertion. Most of these home remedies have been tried and tested for their efficacy. You can usually cure yourself in the privacy of your home without the need to visit your gynecologist.

    Tea Tree Oil
    Tea tree oil is a known natural antifungal. Pour a few drops of undiluted tea tree oil on a tampon and insert into vagina. Do this morning and night. A couple of days should be sufficient.

    Garlic
    Make a paste of garlic pods and apply to skin around the vagina. It may burn a bit, but is very effective. This paste can be used for yeast infection in other parts of the body too. Another way to use garlic for the cure of vaginal yeast infection is to cut a few garlic pods fine and wrap it in a cheesecloth. Insert into vagina for about 20 minutes

    • ANSWER:
      For a yeast infection cure you have no further to look than your physician, your pharmacy, or your fridge. All three of these sources can hold just what you need for a great yeast infection cure.

      If we take our sources one by one, your physician has the ability to give you prescription medications which can potentially a yeast infection cure for you. For instance, the prescription drug Diflucan uses only one dosage and is supposed to be a particularly effective yeast infection cure.

      Other prescription yeast infection cures include Terazol and Gynazole, both of which are vaginal creams, and also Mycostatin which comes in the form of vaginal tablets or vaginal suppositories.

      All of these have side effects which you should be aware of when taking them, as do the next set of potential yeast infection cure, the over-the-counter variety.

      Up until the very early part of the twenty first century it is shameful to admit but there were no over the counter remedies available as a yeast infection cure. On the contrary, if a woman had a yeast infection she had to visit her doctor to get proper medical attention and to receive a yeast infection cure.

      So although the offerings in this department are still woefully meager, they are nonetheless there and available to anyone who doesn’t wish to advertise to the world, or their doctor, that they have a yeast infection.

      Although it is best if you get a proper checkup for your yeast infection it can’t be denied that with the availability of these creams a new world has opened up, and women can now treat such a simple problem without any attendant fuss or hoopla.

      All the available over-the-counter yeast infection cures work along the same principles as the prescription yeast infection cure, and most of them come in cream form, or suppository form. The more familiar brands include Monistat, Femstat, and Vagistat.

      Moving on next to the natural cures and remedies section, you will find that the number of alternative yeast infection cure methods are too numerous to do more than give an honorable mention here.

      To that end only a few of the well known natural yeast infection cure methods have been mentioned. To begin with we’ll start off with everyone’s favorite the yogurt yeast infection cure. It can be messy in the extreme to have to apply yogurt to the vagina, but it turns out that it is well worth the effort.

      Another natural yeast infection cure that is well known and used is that of the garlic cure. Being one of the wonder herbs of the world, garlic is good for many an ailment and is a particularly effective yeast infection cure, especially when used as a suppository.

      Next up you have apple cider vinegar, cranberries, oregano, cinnamon, curd, Tea Tree oil, lemon, lime, and Vitamin C. All of these can be used as an effective yeast infection cure and all of them work.

  33. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection. Not going away. Help.?
    I haven't actually seen a doctor because I'm not insured, but I consulted my cousin, who's becoming a nurse, and I searched up all the common symptoms and I had them, besides the burning urination. I'm confident it's a yeast infection but I'm still not sure.

    Story is,
    I was with my boyfriend, but we weren't having full-on sex. But his member rubbed against mine once or twice.

    I've been having signs since April 1st. I started using garlic as treatment April 3rd that night. I've been using garlic all that week (it was very helpful, but the only reason it remained is that I itch a lot during the night when I'm sleeping.. Which most likely makes it irritated again)

    Then came Sunday night. When I got my period. I searched on the internet and I've read that other girls had gotten rid of their infections after their period, so I went along with it and I didn't use garlic.
    Bad idea, cause on the fourth night of my period(which was last night), it was extremely itchy and I checked and it got much worse. I used garlic last night and it got a lot better today.

    I'm VERY worried, and I'm VERY scared/terrified. I'm only 15. And I want it to go away. The internet isn't providing me with any helpful answers for MY case. So..
    My questions are..

    How long would this last?
    Could it be a Yeast Infection?

  34. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection and/or UTI home remedies?
    I won't be able to go to my doctor for two weeks, and I can't afford to go to a clinic where I currently am, so I've been looking online for information, and this is what I've began putting myself through.

    I did the "spit test" for yeast infections (spit into water first thing in the morning, if it is white and there are web-like veins that spread out, you have a yeast infection) and that says I have a yeast infection, as does webmd and a few other sites based on my symptoms. BUT my lower back (under my ribs, kidney area) has been painful the past two evenings (and only in the evening) and my urine has been really odorous (even when its clear from all the water I'm drinking), so symptom checkers also point to UTIs. I don't have pain with urinating, any itchiness, burning, or swelling at all.

    This morning I started downing water, I ate 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt, I ate a clove of garlic, I took 1000mg of vitamin C, I'm planning on starting Monistat3 tonight, I am forcing myself to consume pure cranberry juice (it is so tart it's painful), and I made my boyfriend go to his doctor to be checked for both UTI and yeast infections and get meds for himself (I'm blaming his beer for the yeast issue).

    I do plan on visiting my doctor asap, but in the mean time, is there anything else I can add to my regimen to improve my chances of getting rid of the yeast and possibly UTI?

    • ANSWER:
      Greek yogurt should be put on a tampon and inserted in to ur vagina for it to treat thrush... x

  35. QUESTION:
    Unstoppable yeast infection. Fluconazole, terazol, monistat no help.?
    I've had a yeast infection for about six weeks solid now. Nothing has gotten rid of it for more than a couple days at a time, and I don't think it ever completely goes away. I have a monogamous partner and was tested for STDs about a year ago, and yes, all cultures done have come back positive for yeast. (I'm HIV negative, my white blood cell count is normal and so is my blood sugar, so immunodeficiency doesn't seem to be the problem.)

    I'm so sick of this and I don't know what to do!

    I started out with two kits of Terazol 3, back to back. Useless. Then, I tried Monistat-7. Also useless. Took one dose of generic Diflucan and another three days later. That seemed to clear it up for about two days, but then it came back with a vengeance.

    I've eaten so much yogurt, I never want to see a tub of the stuff again. I'm taking probiotics. I've tried garlic. I'm going commando, I shower all the damn time and wash my girly parts well — but not with soap.

    I've only had sex with my partner like four times in this six week period, and I'm moving soon. It's breaking my heart because I'd like to be able to be intimate with him before we take it long distance in about a month.

    I'm desperate, but I also have very little willpower when it comes to food and seriously don't think an Atkins-esque diet will work for me.

    A doctor finally wrote me a script for five — yes, FIVE — doses of generic diflucan. I've taken one every day, and my fifth dose will be tomorrow. I haven't seen much improvement, and the 100-degree weather sure isn't helping.

    I'm hoping the Diflucan is just taking a little while...I'd hope it will knock this out. Anyone have any experience with a hardcore Diflucan dose like this? Anyone have a doozy of a yeast infection they finally got rid of? If so, how the heck did you do it?

    • ANSWER:
      Are you still having the cottage cheese like discharge or just itching? It's possible that it is another type of vaginal infection that isn't fungal. Are you taking any kind of medications besides the yeast infection meds? Do you have any other kids of health problems or symptoms?

      Also, there are conditions that make you much more prone to yeast infections. Make sure your doctor is screening you for things that could be causing this.

      As for curing this, if it really is yeast, I would cut out all yeast in your diet. Some people just have yeast overgrowths in their bodies. If you cut out yeast you won't be adding anything to the situation. Cut way back on sugar in your diet. Sugar will feed the existing yeast and make things worse. Start wearing cotton underwear if you don't already.

      I don't think you need to do an atkins type diet, but if you cut back on yeast and sugar I think it would help. I used to have frequent yeast infections and it turned out to be related to gluten intolerance. You might explore that too. Let me know if you have any questions!

    I'm at my wits end, I've had a yeast infection for over 6 months now. The itching is unbearable, its ruining my sex life, and I've been to the doctors several times. Nothing they've given me has worked, I've tried prescription and over the counter things.(monistat)

    Can I put backing soda on a pad and wear it?
    Will it help get rid of a yeast infection?
    I did it with garlic and yogurt but i dont have any of it left will backing soda work?

    • ANSWER:
      No, actually baking soda will make a yeast infection worst. Just go buy Monistat 7 at the store.

      Most home remedies don't work, but you can try adding 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to an 8 oz glass of water and drinking 2-3 glasses of it a day. Eat the yogurt - lots of it, but make sure it's plain as sugar feeds yeast.

      Are you sure it is a yeast infection instead of a bacterial infection?

  39. QUESTION:
    Why do i keep getting recurring yeast infections? what can i do about it?
    For the past 4 months i have been getting yeast infections. i get them at least once a month. I've cut down on sugar, started taken probiotic supplements and started eating yogurt and garlic often. still no help. every month right before my period i get the infection. i dont know what's causing this problem and how to get rid of it permanently. please help.

    • ANSWER:
      It's hormone changes that likely bring on the yeast, don't ask me why but it happens. Try cranberry juice if it's in your bladder. If it still persists, a CandidaGone cleanse or yeast cleanse kit might help you, follow the directions and eat the right foods. Cleanses usually available at health food stores, or those that sell those type of products. Candida is basically related to yeast, so that cleanse would kill yeast too.

      Hope this helps.

  40. QUESTION:
    I have recurring yeast infection after I became sexually active with my now bf. Help! Nothing seems to work.?
    It started abt 1 mth after I became sexually active w my bf. I was given cream, oral medication n douche by the doc. It went away and came back again a few mths later. Between late 2007-now, I had 4-5 episodes of the infection. Doc's med helps for a while but it always comes back. Creams can't seem to get rid of it unless oral meds are involved. We've tried using condoms, not using condoms, either way I will get an infection. I tried eating more yoghurt, garlic etc. No help. I started taking acidophilus capsules recently, not sure if it will work.

    My concern is why is it recurring. There has to be an underlying cause for it, which I cannot seemed to pinpoint. I started eating meat again after being a semi-vegetarian 4 about 6 yrs, which coincides with my recurring infections. Could this be a cause? My primary suspect is the sex, but he was treated when he got it fr me previously. Can other skin conditions contribute to yeast infection? (he has numerous pimple-liked bumps on his body)

  42. QUESTION:
    I think I have a Yeast Infection! What Can I do to help ?!?!?
    Okay, for a couple of months now I have been getting these fishy smells, I have recently started getting itching as well. I do know from research that this is a yeast infection.

    I am in my mid teens and still at school, but I don't feel able to talk to my mum about it! It is one of those embarrassing things and I don't want anyone at school or my siblings finding out.

    I hear people at school saying 'I smell fish' and then say 'Someone must have a dirty vagina'. This is really embarrassing because I know its me!

    So basically from that I don't think I can go to the doctors to see what they have to say (because I can't talk to mum) ...
    so I have some questions ...

    1) Is there anything I can do to ease the smell?
    2) Is there any way to get rid of it without antibiotics or creams?

    + You should know, I have tried using garlic, It worked for a week but not any more, I know that being cleaner is not the problem and that I shouldn't use soaps or anything around that area, and I originally got this in the first place from being on antibiotics, not from being dirty! I'm not sexually active either!

    Please help! Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      You can buy yeast cream without your mums permission. Your yeast infection will not go away without it.

      You may also have Bacterial Vaginosis. This is what causes the fishy smell and MUST be treated with medicine.

      All girls and women get these infections and they are NOT sexually transmitted. Your mum knows this and will not be mad or think you have been a bad girl, Your mum gets them too. She will treat this like a cold or the flu. Take yo to a Doctor and get it fixed, palin and simple. It's not VD or an unwanted pregnancy!

      If you don't tell your mum or the school nurse, it will get worse and you will get very sick and may end up in the hospital. This could also damage your female organs and cause you not to be able to have children in the future.

      As a young lady, now each time you must go on antibiotics, you should get a prescription for "Diflucan", a single pill that cures the inevitable yeast infection that will come to every woman who takes antibiotics.

  43. QUESTION:
    if monistat 1 or 3 wont treat my yeast infection, will monistat 7?

    3. diflucan
    4. tea tree oil on a tampon overnight
    5. garlic and cranberry pills daily
    6. yogurt on a tampon overnight.

    the yogurt seemed to have worked wonderfully. i had no symptoms and felt fine. its been about a week since the yogurt treatment and im starting 2 feel another 1 coming on. i havent had sex 4 about a month so i know its not that. it was just never fully nipped in the bud. its very mild right now. when i first got it it was unbearable. but i dont want to go through this anymore. i just want to be normal and have a normal sex life. my bf has been very supportive through this whole thing but its just killing me!! theres just a voice inside my head telling me that if the other monistats didnt work, that the 7 day wont work. this is my 2nd yeast infection. i had my 1st 1 2 years ago and i did successfully treat it with the monistat 7 day. and doctors tell me 2 try the 7 day. is my body immune to it or should i try it? ive already spent over 50 dollars trying to get rid of this. i want to make sure im not gonna blow another 20 dollars. but if you help me you would really be a lifesaver

  45. QUESTION:
    Would a garlic clove come out of a vagina?
    Now, I have read that sticking a garlic clove up the vagina can be good for getting rid of a yeast infection. What if my girl puts one up there? Should I get a side of pasta? I AM NOT asking you if a person should put one up there. What I am asking is if a garlic clove would eventually just come out, (or any other object not hard and plastic or metal like ben wah balls, which I do know come out on their own) Would I have to go fishing? I mean, who wants a rotting garlic up there? But there are many that say it works. How does it come out?????

    • ANSWER:
      She would be able to push it out with her muscles. So you wouldn't have to do anything to get it out.

      I would go get some cream from the pharmacy though.

I've cut down on sugar, started taken probiotic supplements and started eating yogurt and garlic often. still no help. every month right before my period i get the infection. i dont know what's causing this problem and how to get rid of it permanently. please help.

    • ANSWER:
      You are suffering from a biofilm problem. This is very common and if you are or have taken any antibiotics for this problem, you have just given yourself the booby prize. Antibiotics turn off the "T" cells in your humoral immune system. The biofilms are polysaccharide sacs that cover the bacteria or virus and keep the macrophages from attacking them, and then only get the surface germs. These safe havens created by the biofilms cause the problem to keep recurring. The inner walls of the bladder get infected and this also promotes more yeast problems. You need to address this issue with things other than drugs that are just treating the symptoms and ignoring the root causes.

      You are correct in taking garlic, but the component in garlic that does the action you are trying to achieve is the allicin. In order to really get that to work, you need a concentrated form of that, but not some synthetic chemical or drug because your body knows the difference. You need to strengthen the walls of the bladder and go after the infection there with phytonutrients that are very concentrated. No, cranberry juice you buy in stores will not do this, but a highly concentrated form of cranberries will do the job. There is also a very highly effective form of ALOE species mixed with a few ingredients that will go after the yeast and clean all the mucus membranes in your body where candida lives to get rid of the excess candida that contributes to the yeast infections you are getting.

      Building up the intestinal flora is very important aspect of boosting your immune system. 75% of your immune system is found in this flora. A healthy person should have about 3 pounds of this in their gut. If you have taken just one antibiotic pill, you have destroyed these bacteria and just taking a probiotic pill is not going to build that bacteria up. You need to be eating lots of fermented foods, but most of what you get in stores is loaded with sugar. A Yoplait yogurt, for instance, has 27 grams of sugar. Eat 16 of those and you have eaten 1 pound of sugar. That feeds candida and yeast infections. It's also pasteurized, so it is a complete joke to think that is going to help build your intestinal flora.

      If you follow this procedure, you should be able to get result within a few days that are permanent because you will addressing the root causes, not just getting "MAKE BELIEVE HEALTH" by treating the symptoms with drugs.

      Good luck to you

    • ANSWER:

  50. QUESTION:
    Insert a clove of garlic...in the behind?
    This isn't a joke and please no one report me because I'm not talking about any kind of sexual act. Just give me a response if you know the answer...if not, please don't respond. I have heard that inserting a clove of garlic in the vagina is good for yeast infections. Since candida overgrowth actually happens in the intestines, would it do any good to insert garlic in the behind to get rid of the bacteria or fungus faster?

    • ANSWER:
      I've had good luck with the garlic clove trick--garlic is great for infections of all kinds. HOWEVER, you shouldn't insert anything into the anus, because it can get lost up there. Anyone who works in an emergency room is full of tales of lost items in the nether regions and it's just not a good idea.


Get Rid Of Yeast Infection Naturally

Written By: admin - Feb• 20•12

In fact, they are more prevalent than we can ever imagine. In several studies on the prevalence of candidiasis, results have shown that about 80 million Americans suffer from candidiasis yearly. Yeast overgrowing in the body causes a yeast infection. Yeast in normally found on the skin, mouth, vagina, and penis. So, these are the areas where yeast infections occur.

If you want to get rid of yeast infection quickly, you must avoid use of synthetic undergarments. Further tight undergarments provide all comforts to the fungus and it quickly overgrows and aggravates infection. You should also avoid wet clothing as these wet undergarments also aggravate the condition.

Dip a tampon into plain yogurt. Insert this into the vagina and leave it in for at least an hour. Do this twice a day. Continue until one day after your symptoms disappear.

Don't use Echinacea to treat the yeast infection. This may work well when taken orally for colds. But if taken vaginally, it will cause severe and painful burning.

It is important to remember that yeast infections can occur in any part of the body and can affect men too. In the case of non-vaginal yeast infections, you can apply garlic paste over the affected part of the body. Garlic contains a lot of yeast killing natural substances that are anti-fungal. This is the best natural remedy for yeast infections.

Wash the affected area with vinegar solution: A very dilute solution of vinegar is quite effective in eliminating the yeast infection. Wash the affected area few times a day with dilute vinegar solution (around 2 to 3% vinegar in water) at the interval of 4 to 6 hours.

Make a douche using apple cider vinegar and garlic. Stir one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into an 8-ounce glass of water and place one peeled garlic clove into it. Let this sit for 30 minutes. Remove the garlic clove and then douche with it two times a day. Repeat until the symptoms clear.

Colloidal silver is a mineral that is known for being effective in eliminating 100's of diseases. When you have oral yeast infection and tea tree oil need to be used as mouth wash, then dilute it with plain water. Add a few drops of tea tree oil in a glass of water and gargle your mouth thoroughly with it every day for faster cure of oral thrush. Make sure that you do not swallow up the solution. If you're having trouble finding this oil, witch hazel and lemon balm can also be used.

This is found in some yoghurt and milk products. It is also available as a powder in concentrated form. Mix it in water and drink for a few days until you see results.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    I'm 14 and I thin I have a yeast infection. I really don't want to tell my parents about it to get medicine. Plus I hate putting medicines and chemicals into my body anyway. Are there any ways to get rid of it naturally without medicine?

    • ANSWER:
      if you have yeast infection then you must get rid of it as soon as it is possible!!!

      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection then you must follow these tips - they worked for me:

      1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

      5) Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      7) also you should use some herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
      And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore (almost 2 years) ...

  2. QUESTION:
    How do i get rid of my yeast infection naturally and without having to go to the doctor?
    It really itches and i'm using a cream to make it stop which really helps. I don't want to go to the doctor because it grosses me out but I would really like to get rid of it naturally

    • ANSWER:
      There are tons of over the counter remedies in drugstores. Just get one of those. Also, sleep without undies for several days to air it out, yeast is caused by moisture. Acidolpholus (available in health stores) is friendly bacteria and a natural treatment, but will take a LONG time to cure that way.

      Antibiotics aren't a cure for yeast, they actually cause yeast infections. A doctor would just give you an antifungal med for it anyway.

  3. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection naturally while pregnant?
    I have a yeast infection and pregannt. I want to know if there is a way to get rid of it with out taking medication or medicated cremes. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Plain yogurt. No flavors. Betadine swabs. Cranberry juice to flush your system.

      Plain yogurt and betadine swabs work, I have personally used them. I cant vouch for cranberry juice as I have never tried it.

  4. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to get rid of yeast infection naturally?
    without any medicine?

    • ANSWER:
      Not very effectively but there are ways. Garlic is a natural antibiotic, so a garlic supplement or heavy garlic intake in your diet may help. You can also insert a garlic clove or tablet into the vagina few hours. You can dip a tampon in plain (no sugar!) yoghurt and insert it into the vagina. Add a cup of apple cider vinegar to your bath water (if you use it directly it will burn like crazy). Drink lots and lots of water. Take a probiotic culture or eat a probiotic yoghurt serving every day.
      If these aren't effective you may need to use medication.
      To avoid yeast in the future limit the times you wear thongs, wear cotton panties that breathe, eat probiotic yoghurt or take a probiotic culture daily, don't use soaps in the genital area, never douche or use feminine deodorants, and keep the genital area dry. Pads can trap moisture and irritate the vagina. Also avoid scented tampons.

Plus shes very diffcult she has to have every thing nautral. This is my question though can you still have sex with a yeast infection.

    • ANSWER:
      NO you can't have sex with a yeast infection because she will give it to him and then they will just go back and forth with it. Secondly- a girl can get a yeast infection from other things besides sex. You can get a yeast infection from taking antibiotics and you can get one from just not changing your underwear, and you can get one from not eating the right kinds of food. So that shouldn't be an issue. Tell her to go buy some medicine you can get it over the counter. Or if she is really hard up on being stupid and not getting it fixed: which will eventually lead up to an std....then tell her to eat alot of yogurt: acidopholis(acid-da-fo-lus) is the ingrediant that kills yeast. She can get it in pill form at the vitamin/drug stores. PS...NO ITS NOT AN STD, BUT IF SHE IS STUPID ENOUGH TO NOT GET IT TAKEN CARE OF THEN SHE IS STUPID ENOUGH TO GET AN STD.

  11. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to naturally get rid of a yeast infection?
    Do I have to put crap into my body, like monistat 1, to get rid of a yeast infection, or can I use an alternative, natural, unharmful method which is safe for my body?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way is by eating yogurts that have healthy bacterias. .Sometimes the pH levels get unbalances. Water and vinegar Douche works well also. See this link that's super helpful. Good luck we all go through it.

  12. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    I am not positive if i have a yeast infection. I have normal discharge for pergnancy but it has a tint of yellow and i herd that can mean a yeast infection, but i dont itch or it doesnt smell. I guess i have 2 questions, is it a yeast infection from what ihave told you and if so how do i get rid of it without meds. Im very nervouse bout taking meds while pregnant and dont want to stick anything up there during this period.
    I see everyonw is saying yogart, but i drink a yogart smoothie a day, cause i cant gain wait and im a pre-school teacher and its hard to get a great meal in.

    • ANSWER:
      yogurt is good for keeping your body's natural pH balanced which will prevent and treat a yeast infection. But from what you've described, if it's only a little bit yellowish, and it doesn't smell, itch, burn, or have a thick/chunky texture (yea, icky I know); that doesn't sound like a yeast infection. Normal discharge can be clear, milky, or slightly yellow in color.

  14. QUESTION:
    How do I naturally (without medicine) get rid of a yeast infection?
    I want to know of a way that I can cure the yeast infection that I have without buying a yeast infection cream or chemical. The only symtom that I have right now is discharge, I know that it is a yeast infection and nothing else because I have had yeast infections before and I know, what they are like by now. Please help me! This is ANNOYING!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Try drinking kefir, it's been used for hundreds of years and the probiotics in it really keep the yeast infections in check for women. I really enjoy Lifeway Kefir because it's very tasty (You can get plain, strawberry, or other flavor) and it has 10 live cultures.
      http://www.lifeway.net/

      You can check what local stores carry it. I drink kefir very often (people do in Russia) and I never had a yeast infection in my life.

  17. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection on a budget?
    I have a yeast infection that didn't react to what the doctor prescribed... I can't afford to go back to the doctor. I also don't want to spend too much money on something over-the-counter that might not work either. Does anyone know of any easy ways of getting rid of this naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      I've heard about the yogart, I think you use the bifidus yogart, although I have never tried it. Once you are rid of the infection drink lots of fluid, about 2 litres per day, and cranberry juice is also good, one or 2 glasses per day. Really this is an area that you cannot compromise on , go back to the doc, tell him it did not work. I know you have a rather tight budget, but your health is really one area you cannot compromise on.

  18. QUESTION:
    I'm pretty sure that I might have a yeast infection. What can I do naturally to get rid of it?
    For may be a week now, I had discharge that kind of looks like cottage cheese. It smells like absolutely nothing. I have had discharge for a year and it's always been normal except for now. I haven't gotten my period either. I don't know what could have caused it because I'm not on antibiotics and don't use scented soaps down there or wear scented underwear. I always wash everyday so I really don't know. I'm away right now because I visit my grandparents in Seattle every summer for about 2 or 3 weeks so I can't really go to the doctor or speak to my mom about it in person. Is this a yeast infection and if it is, how do I use yogurt to cure it? Also, it is not an STD because i am only 12 and have never had sex.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      There are many things you need to start doing and addressing if you are suffering from a yeast infection. To start, do the following:

      1. Wear loose clothing and undergarments, oxygen kills yeast, going commando and wearing nothing down there if possible is even better.

      2. Get some unsweetened yogurt and rub it onto a tampon, insert the tampon and do this continually until the yeast infection is gone. If this doesn't work for you, you can also use your fingers, however make sure you are laying down on your back to prevent it from dripping out.

      3. Cut out any and all sugar, alcohol and yeast from your diet. All three will promote the infection further.

      4. Start drinking cranberry juice, pure not from concentrate with no added sugar, I know this goes against the no sugar thing but the acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.

      5. If you can tolerate it, use a raw garlic clove and apply it to the infection, this may burn so dilute it with some olive or coconut oil, both of which can also help eliminate the yeast, especially the coconut.

      6. You can also try taking some vitamin B3, many women find their infections resolve quicker when they are taking 300mg/per day.

      7. Take a probiotic with at least 50 billion live cells per pill, this is key in redistributing good bacteria throughout your body, and effectively end the yeast infection. I know the brand renew life has a good one.

      8. Lastly if all else fails, begin adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath. Only fill the tub up high enough to submerge your genital area. Stay in the tub for 20-30 minutes at a time.

      Hope this helps, the yogurt is the key really, by putting good bacteria directly on the area you will eliminate it quickly. Make sure it is unsweetened and ideally keep an eye out for a variation called Kefir which has even more beneficial bacteria in it to snuff out the infection.

      When all is said and done I would suggest you research Candida and take a test to determine if you are suffering from it, as anyone who gets yeast infections has Candida, it's just a matter of how bad it is.

  19. QUESTION:
    9 weeks pregnant and for 2weeks I have this yeast infection, is this Normal and how to get rid of it naturally?

    I said naturally! I dont want to take those stupid creams, especially during preg. Who cares HOW 'safe' they say they
    are!

    • ANSWER:
      It is totally normal to have a yeast infection while pregnant because the sharp changes in hormones will throw off the natural balance of yeast and bacteria in your vagina; many women will get either a yeast infection or bacterial infection while pregnant. There are several natural ways to treat a yeast infection besides the store-bought creams, but I have never tried any so I cannot offer any advice on which to try. Here is a link where you may read about them, however. Also, I suggest before you do any at-home treatment that you consult your doctor or midwife.

  20. QUESTION:
    yeast infection cant get rid of suggestions please?
    okay so i have had this yeast infection for a while and i can get rid of it
    i eat yoplait yogurt everyday because it has live cultures in it
    and im orally taking AZO everyday
    ive been doing this for 5 days now and it seems like it has not changed or it just became worse.

    suggestions please??? anything else i can get rid of naturally

    oh and i do you monostat cream which really helps
    thanks for your answers
    i dont have health insurance therefore cant go to a doctor & im only 17 my mom knows i have it so she told me to use AZO.
    but thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Once you get a yeast infection, the natural route usually doesn't work. You will have to get a prescription from a doctor. The doctor will usually give you one pill (taken orally), that will kill the infection within 3 days. But depending on the doctor.

      Yogurt is to give your body a head start on preventing yeast infections, not to cure it completely... and AZO not a good idea to take that everyday, simply because your body will become to dependent on it and once you stop taking AZO a yeast infection may appear...

      Mono state is ok, but its only a temporary relief. Depending on how long you've had your infection depends on how potent the medication should be and mono state is a very mild yeast cream, unless you try mono state 7.

      Get checked by a doctor, then continue eating yogurt, drinking plenty of water, wearing all cotton undies, looser pants and eating not too many carbs. because yeast (candida bacteria) feeds on sugar and multiply.

      If you take the precautions everyday, you will not have any yeast infection problems, because once you've had an yeast infection, its extremely easy to get re-occurring infections.

  21. QUESTION:
    does nappy rash cream help to get rid of yeast infection ? help?
    I think I have yeast infection, and I've had it for quite a while now.
    I didn't know it was yeast infection. But I do think it is because I do mostly everything that I am not supposed to do ( that causes the yest infection ) such as wearing skinny jeans, tights and leotard ( for dance classes 5 times a week. ) but I do use cotton pads when I am on my period.
    I am 14 years old any I do not want to tell my mom about this ! this is just way too embarrassing for me.
    I don't care if you guys are telling me to suck it up and be a woman and just tell her. I am really shy and I am like a closed book and I barely open my self to anyone about problems like these.
    my symptoms are ;
    redness on the vaginal area.
    it itches sometimes.
    Something around the vagina ( not actually in the vagina ) that looks white and smells funny but you can't feel any smell unless you touch it and smell the finger. ( ew. )

    I am currently using a nappy rash cream to clear it up. The name of the cream is Déflamol and it's for little babies. You use it to get rid of nappy rash and it heals and gets rid of all bacteria. You use it for itchiness and it's also used in allot of treatments aginst psoriasis.

    I don't even know how to say Yeast infection in my language and I don't think my mom will understand what it is and I won't want to have to describe all this because I barely know anything about it. I don't want to go to the doctor.
    Is there a way I can get rid of this naturally ?
    Do you think the Déflamol nappy rash cream will work ?

    p.s. sorry for my bad english ;s
    thank you for taking a look at my question.
    and I am not sexually active ;)
    okay so I told my mother !
    and she knew what I was talking about :)
    she gave me vagasil cream. I put it on, does it clear up the infection ? O.o

  22. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection?
    I don't like taking medication, and the over the counter treatments at the drug store hurt and burn and I would not like to use them.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of a yeast infection naturally??

    • ANSWER:
      While a doctors perscription is best, there are some other things you can try to get rid of a yeast infection.

      Boric acid capsules are good, and sometimes they work better than an otc remedy. You would have to make the capsules yourself by putting the powder into empty caps. You can buy boric acid at the pharmacy in the eyecare section (it is a mild antiseptic). Put one capsule into your vag once in the morning and once at night for 2 weeks. there will be a little bit of watery discharge, but it works, and its inexpensive. I swear by it! !

      You can also use the capsules if you think you might have a yeast infection coming on. One or 2 treatments may nip the problem in the bud. I havent had an infection since I began using it

      Also, make sure you don't injest any boric acid. It is toxic if taken orally.

      Another thing you can do to prevent yeast infections is to eat plenty of yogurt, and take a folic acid suppliment daily.

  23. QUESTION:
    How can both BV and yeast infection be treated naturally?
    If they can't, what product do I need to use to get rid of both of them, and do I need a prescription?

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections aren't that easy to permanently get rid of. Many products can temporarily relieve the symptoms, but a long term treatment approach will be your best bet to completely elliminate it.

      One of the more popular and effective homeopathic solutions is yeastrol. It's very effective at treating vaginal, penile and oral yeast infections.

      What you can also do to speed your recovery is to change you diet in a way that will starve the yeast organisms (Candida).

      Things that you should remove from your diet are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour,
      alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold.

      Things to add to your diet are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice and oat brans

      Another thing to keep in mind is that both you and your partner should consider the diet change/yeastrol treatment as you can be passing the infection back and forth between you.

      Hope this helps and best of luck! :)

  25. QUESTION:
    Natural Yeast Infection Cures Treatments?
    i am taking antibiotics and now i have a yeast infection. I am not happy.is there any way i can get rid of the infection naturally? any tip will be appreciated thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt - there's nothing in Greek yoghurt that will help, the reason pro-biotic yoghurt helps is because it contains lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that creates hydrogen peroxide that kills yeast. There's argument about whether eating it helps as it goes through digestive system and not via the vagina, but I know when I feel ill my vaginal health is effected and fact is bacteria from your anus will linger round your vagina - unpleasant, but they are the facts - so better it be healthy bacteria! You may prefer to take acidophilus tablets.

      Another edible solution is drinking either cranberry or blueberry juice (or taking cranberry tablets), these help by effecting the pH of your urine - the theory here is that as the urine passes over your vulva it may be of some help in fighting off the yeast beasties, or at least ease some discomfort.

      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt is best applied directly to your genitals, you can plaster it onto your vulva before bed, you can fill a syringe to insert into your vagina, or personally I recommend freezing in ice cube trays as an easy way to insert and cooling too. Do this overnight, wear a CLOTH pad or old underwear to bed then wash with water in the morning - commercial pads are a major cause of such infections so they're a no-no, and obviously anything chemical near your vagina like soap is a no-no.

      Garlic - not great smelling, but works well as it's a natural anti-fungal, you do literally take a garlic clove, peel and insert. Be careful not to score the clove as it may sting, and you may want to tie some clean thread around it so it's easier to remove.

      Tea tree oil - you can insert a few drops into your vagina and around your vulva, but to some women this is too uncomfortable, so instead try having a jug near the toilet to fill with water and add a few drops then wash it over your genitals when you go to the toilet...no reason to do it specifically then, it's just a handy time to do it. Same can be done with a mix of 1 tablespoon potassium sorbate to a cup of water, or 1 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water, or liter of water and 2 tablespoons of white or cidar vinegar, or Juice of half a lemon, or 1 teaspoon vitamin C.

      Gentian violet - this stuff is cool, it turns your snatch purple which is sort of freaky, it's a very old natural anti-fungal, you plaster it onto your genitals and that's that...well, you have to wear old underwear and use old sheets when you sleep as it will stain anything it comes into contact with. Use it once or twice a day for a few days.

      Another old one is Boric Acid - yes it sounds scary, but it's safe, you just load up about 600 mg into a couple of gel capsules then insert them into your vagina where your body heat will desolve the capsules and the boric acid will kill off the yeast.

  26. QUESTION:
    Is lactobacillus pills bad for pregnant woman with yeast infections who can't go to the doctor?

It says for pregnant people not to take it, but if you really need something for this problem, should you take it? What other ways can you naturally get rid of a yeast infection?

  29. QUESTION:
    yeast infection & men, giving it to my boyfriend?
    ok so I've had a yeast infection for a while now. I tried to treat it with monistat 1 then monistat 7. the symptoms went away so I figured the infection was gone. My boyfriend & I had sex about 2 weeks ago but not since then (we usually live about 2 hours apart so we don't see each other very often) My doctor prescribed me diflucan to finally cure my yeast infection. My question is, how long after taking the diflucan should I wait to have sex again? I want to be finally rid of this stupid yeast infection so I don't want to risk giving it to him then reinfecting myself or irritating my vagina anymore with sex. So how long should I wait after taking the diflucan pill before it's safe to have sex? and also, if I had given the yeast infection to my boyfriend 2 weeks ago, would he still have it now or would his body have gotten rid of it naturally by now? I really want to be done with this infection once and for all!

    • ANSWER:
      1. Diflucan (I'm assuming you got the standard single dose here, right?) begins to clear the infection right away, but it can take several days to get rid of it all. I'd give it a week before resuming sex, personally, just to let yourself heal up.

      2. The thing with yeast infections in males is that they can get them (although not as easily as you can) but they often don't have any symptoms. If you had infected your bf two weeks ago, yes, he could still have it. It's not a guarantee that he'd give it to back you or anything, but it's certainly possible if you are prone to yeast overgrowth issues.

    Yeast infection questions?

How do I get rid of it? Can it be cured naturally? Please help i'm worried! Oh does that vagisil screening kit work please serious answers only!

    • ANSWER:
      It's an itchy feeling you might hardly notice at first. Maybe,you muse, it's just that your jeans are too tight. Actually,tight jeans may have something to do with it. But if the itch keeps getting itchier, even when your jeans have been off for awhile, then there's something else involved.

      That something else could very well be a fungus whose technical name is Candida, and which causes what is often called a "yeast" infection. Such infections are most common in teenage girls and women aged 16 to 35, although they can occur in girls as young as 10 or 11 and in older women (and less often, in men and boys as well). You do not have to be sexually active to get a yeast infection.

      The Food and Drug Administration now allows medicines that used to be prescription-only to be sold without a prescription to treat vaginal yeast infections that keep coming back. But before you run out and buy one, if you've never been treated for a yeast infection you should see a doctor. Your doctor may advise you to use one of the over-the-counter(OTC) products or may prescribe a drug called Diflucan (fluconazole).The FDA recently approved the drug for clearing up yeast infections with just one dose.

      Though itchiness is a main symptom of yeast infections, if you've never had one before, it's hard to be sure just what's causing your discomfort. After a doctor makes a diagnosis of vaginal yeast infection, if you should have one again, you can more easily recognize the symptoms that make it different from similar problems. If you have any doubts, though, you should contact your doctor.
      Other symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection include:

      soreness
      rash on outer lips of the vagina
      burning, especially during urination.
      The OTC products for vaginal yeast infections have one of four active ingredients: butoconazole nitrate (Femstat 3), clotrimazole (Gyne-Lotrimin and others), miconazole (Monistat 7 and others), and tioconazole (Vagistat). These drugs are in the same anti-fungal family and work in similar ways to break down the cell wall of the Candida organism until it dissolves. FDA approved the switch of Femstat 3 from prescription to OTC status December 1996 and a similar switch for Vagistat in February 1997. The others have been available OTC for a few years.
      When you visit the doctor the first time you have a yeast infection, you can ask which product may be best for you and discuss the advantages of the different forms the products come in: vaginal suppositories (inserts) and creams with special applicators. Remember to read the warnings on the product's labeling carefully and follow the directions.

      You can't.

      Nothing will truly flush out or cure vaginosis without antibiotics. All natural products or home remedies only treat the symptoms, but not the disease.

      You should go to a free clinic and they can give you antibiotics.

      You should also not try to "let it run it's course." It's not that kind of disease. It will only get worse and can possibly turn into pelvic inflammatory disease, or even work it's way into your urethra and give you a UTI or kidney infection. Bone up and go to the doctor.

  34. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection after delivery?
    I had my son about 4 and a half weeks ago - naturally. Right after I deivered I got a UTI from a catheter they used due to the epidural. Thyey gave me medicine and I got rid of it. Now I have been itchy 24/7 and burning sensation. Could this be a yeast infection? Is it normal to get a yeast infection after having a baby?

    • ANSWER:
      It could be, but no, that's not usual. Usually, all infections and problems that a woman may have had during pregnancy actually get cleared up and PH levels all go back to normal. Just to be safe, I would go to the doctor and let them swab it and look at it under the microscope to determine what it is for sure.

    I douched with vinegar and some blackish chunks and milky stuff came out. Is that normal?
    I am trying to get rid of a yeast infection naturally. I mixed a little vinegar with water and used it as a douche. I have never douched before. Immediately the toilet was filled with a murky whitish liquid and a few black chunks floating inside. My period just ended a few days ago so the black stuff could be from then. I have also been putting in yogurt at night so that could be the white or it could be normal discharge. What do you think? Also, how often should I do this? I am trying to get the Ph of my vagina straightened out.

    • ANSWER:
      Douching is bad, don't do it it screws with the vaginas natural juices.lol But i would say that u should probably see a doctor.

    I might have a small case of a yeast infection?
    i've had this ever since i was little...

    i would never wipe when i was young and it would smell...
    so for 2 years now i wipe whenever i go

    the smell doesnt seep through my pants any more but theres still a white goo'y discharge on my underwear... it smells...

    i dont have any pain or itching just discharge and slight smell...

    how can i get rid of it naturally

    I dont want to talk to my step mother about it -we dont have the best relationship... basicly i dont ever talk to her-
    and I dont want to go to the docter...

    so what ways can i get rid of it naturally?
    change in diet...
    whatever i can find in the house

      This might be the best news you can get.
      The smell you are talking about, don't worry about it. Your the only person who can smell it. Girl are so in tuned with there bodies that, they are the only person who can smell themselves like that.

      The discharge you are talking about is what is suppost to happen... that goo'y white stuff, is made by your body to help you have a baby. it feds the sperm and help them live.

      if you really don't like it, you can wear a lite day or douch.
      if you are really call to your doctor when you for a check up. you don't have to tell your step mom, but it could be a good way to get to know her.

  39. QUESTION:
    Male yeast infection..!?
    Okay, I had yeast infections for 3 years now. I did go to plan parenthood and they gave me this creams that dont work on me. so i decided to go to a urologist to take a look, they gave me a strong cream crystal clear one that burned my penis so hard, but it helped atleast. But eventually 2 months later it came back and im having trouble getting rid of it again. i dont want to go back to the urologyst it will cost a lot again. is there any good effective way to cure this naturally?? please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Eat more yogurt. Lots! You need more good bacteria in your system.

      Good luck!

      EDIT: To the people below who claim to know a bit about natural meds, I am a healthcare professional-a cardiovascular technologist, and i have seen time and time again that natural medicine works even when prescribed medication doesnt.

      Yogurt is full of live cultures which naturally slow down the growth of yeast. This is why after you take antibiotics-which also kill good bacteria, most docs will advise you eat pro-biotic foods.

      Cranberry juice is great for digestive health. Its help directly for yeast infections is slim, but its so good for your that it can only help your system as a whole.

      Please don't listen to people who have no idea what they are talking about. Especially the one who claims to have a biology degree.

      Good luck and feel better.

  40. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of Bacterial Vaginosis naturally?
    I got a mirena. It's been giving me BV horrendously. I had never had it before, so I ran to the doctor. I don't have insurance so I really cant afford an 800$ bill every 3 weeks. Plus, taking antibiotics every month is horrible for my body and then I have a yeast infection to deal with.
    I'm very clean. I never washed the interior, let it do it's own thing.
    I've been using plain yogurt inserts at night and apple vinegar douches in the morning (as I was told by a professional ob/gyn that is not my doctor)
    Is there anything else I can try? I'm on a budget, so please don't write a 0 list of willy nilly crap from the natural food store. Like can I increase the amount of yogurt? Some sites said folic acid pills. I want it gone. (the mirena too, but conveniently no one will remove it and my doctors wont admit my problem comes from the mirena... even though 90+ percent of its users get BV on a regular basis)
    I don't know why I can't get it removed. I swear I'm not the only one with this issue. They keep saying, 'you have to wait until you've had it for 6 months.' 'you have to wait til 8 months' '...a year' 'the mirena isn't causing these problems, its impossible' etc. Apparently i'm the only person thats had a problem with it... except the internet is filled with stories similar to mine. Also, most of my friends got one around the same time, they're dealing with the same problem. A friend had to flip out in the ER to get it removed. I don't have the cash for that.

    • ANSWER:
      The problem seems to be that you need to get the Mirena taken care of. BV should not keep coming back after the correct dosages of antibiotics. Although, you may want to ask your doctor for the vaginal gel, rather than oral antibiotics, as this targets the problem area rather than running the antibiotics through your entire system. I'm not understanding why you cannot get your IUD removed. Is this due to your lack of insurance? There should be no reason why you cannot have this done.

  41. QUESTION:
    I received unprotected oral sex and now the tip of my penis itches a little?
    I received oral from a girl who smokes three days ago. Could it be a yeast infection/UTI? If so what are ways to naturally get rid of it. I'm also going to get an STD test at the end of this month. It doesn't hurt so much as its irritated/tingly sensation. It doesn't hurt when I pee but I noticed that there's some pee droplets that remain near the top lol...(if theres any relevance).

  42. QUESTION:
    Still haven't gotten my period?
    I was supposed to get my period 10 days ago and it still hasn't arrived. I've never had sex and I recently had a yeast infection which I got rid of naturally taking cranberry supplements. I have been somewhat stressed but not to the point were my period is 10 days late! Please help?

    • ANSWER:
      It's normal. Little, a lot or no stress at all, it's normal for your period to be late. The yeast infection may have pushed your period back a couple weeks. It happened to me before. Just wait another week, and if you still haven't got it then go see a doctor. But don't stress about it.

  43. QUESTION:
    what will happen if i dont treat with medicines???
    im suffering from repeat yeast infection. first time i went to see a doc and took a viganal insert. next time i went to see another doc took different medicine. but i cant seem to get rid of this yeast infection. it comes back after about 1 or two months later.
    im really tired of going to a doc and put those inserts. it just seems wrong to me to use them too often.
    is there anyway to treat it naturally?
    will just eating yoghurt and drinking water, wearing cotton panties, using unscented soap will help?
    im changing my panties at least twice a day and using unscented soap. but i dont like yoghurt. if yoghurt is really important i will eat them....

    help girlz.....

    • ANSWER:
      The first thing to do is STOP USING SOAP. You should not use soap in the vaginal area. The vagina is a self cleaning oriface and soap strips away too much of the good bacteria allowing the bad aka yeast to take over and grow. You need to treat it but if you are sure it is a yeast infection then see the doc and ask for Diflucan which is a pill and works better than the creams or inserts. Once you take it be sure you are eating enough yogurt every day with live active cultures or taking acidophillus capsules to help from getting it again. If you are sexually active then get your partner tested as he may not show symptoms but have it. Also do not use tampons while you have an active infection. Do not douche and do not take a tub bath if you have a shower. Make sure your pants are not to tight and do not sleep in your underwear. Be sure your underwear truely is 100% cotton (read the lable).

  44. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of the fishy smell?
    ok, im kind of embaressed to ask this, but for a few years my vagina has a fishy smell. I havent gotten my period yet, and I know it's not a yeast infection, because I haven't gotten the other symptoms for it. I heard that some women naturally smell like that, and I just want to get rid of it. I take baths, and shower normally, but really it does nothing. I'm too embarressed to tell my mom, too. So, I have no way of getting over the counter stuff. Just, is there a way to get rid of it, and is this normal?
    Not getting any discharge, not really itching or burning either. Just smells =/

    • ANSWER:
      Don't use soaps in your vagina! That can cause odors. You can use Summer's Eve on the vulva but, not inside yourself. You can also buy wipes just for odors but, read the directions.

      How do you dress? If you wear tight pants alot, that can hold in heat making it heaven for odor causing bacteria. After you shower...if you have a hand held shower head that will work best for cleaning the outside of the vulva and the inside of the vulva... pat your vulva dry and sleep in very loose fitting bottoms with no panties. Air needs to circulate.

      Never put perfumes on your vulva to cover a smell, either.

  47. QUESTION:
    Anyone with advice to help with feeling guilty because not able to breastfeed?
    I am a first time mom at 22 and have a beautiful 6 week old baby girl, MacKenzie Kay. I had quite a ehctic birth, 20 hours of labor and an hour of pushing. My baby girl was 10 lbs 5 oz and I had to receive a 4th degree episiotomy because her shoulder got stuck. I had nurses on top of me pushing my belly to get her out. When she finally came out she wasnt breathing or moving at all and was nearly purple. She finally cried and everything turned out okay except for the fact she also broke my tailbone. I had an extensive recovery but infections caused me to have to receive the epositomy AGAIN because the infection broke down the stitching. I started taking Amoxicillin and of course, it caused my body to stop protecting itself naturally and I got a yeast infection. I also noticed white spots on my nipples. Now, I wasn't breastfeeding my baby from the start, I was pumping every few hours and feeding her the milk via bottle because my whole life I have had super sensitive nipples and I would cry and cry when I tried to have her feed on the breast because it was so painful. Even pumping is excruciatingly painful for me. But I spotted producing milk when my baby was around 3 weeks old. Ever few hours I would only get about 1 oz of milk between my two breasts. I am now taking medication to get rid of both the first infection AND the yeast infection. I have not yet had the surgery to receive the episiotomy again because we have to wait until the infection is gone before my doctor decides we can go ahead with it again. But now, I am only producing around 1-1.5 oz every few DAYS. My breasts never hurt, I never leak, and there's nothing I can do about it. I feel so guilty that my baby girl isn't getting the complete and BEST nutrition she can get. I want to ONLY feed her the breastmilk but I can't give that to her and I feel horrible. I know they say breastfeeding is for some women. Some women have psychological problems with breastfeeding and others have physical problems and they say to not feel about it. But I can't help but feel like she is missing out completely on the best nutrition she can get. I want just the best for her and I just get upset everytime I start thinking about how I can't provide the best for her already so how will I be able to later on in her life. I feel guilty and I already feel like I'm failing as a mother. My body decided to fail on ME so I feel like it's my fault that she will have problems later in life because she didn't get the proper nutrition as a child.

    Like I said, I know they say not to feel guilty if it doesn't work out but I can't help but feel that way. I was wondering if anyone has gone through something similar and could help me find a way or tell me how they coped with not being able to breastfeed when they wanted to. I just want to know ways to feel better about it. I want nothing more than the best for my baby like any other mother does for theirs. And I don't want to see a therapist who doesn't know what I am going through for this problem, I just want support and advice from other mothers who have experienced similar situations. Please help.

  48. QUESTION:
    I am having problems with my vagina please help me !?
    I dont like talking about this much but i seriously need some help. I have only had one partner and he is soon to be my husband. we r living together and we have sex often,2 wks ago i had a yeast infection and got rid of it, this week. I noticed these bumps on the outside of my vagina they are very painful and make it hard to pee because if the pee hits it , it burns so naturally its hard to wipe too. I Also have 2 small ones on the upper part of my vagina above the clitorus. I have no idea why I got them or what they are , I thought maybe they were ulcers because I currently got sick this wk and i have a cold sore on my lip and a few ulcers on my tongue, and i got these bumps a day or so before i got sick,the ones by my clit are red and the others below on the outside of my vagina are pinkish they are rather medium like a pump or big pimple thats what it looks like but someone said maybe its a ulcer. pls help me, what do u think they are and how can I get rid of them.

    • ANSWER:
      Did he perform oral sex while you had the cold sore? Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex type 1 virus. If someone performs oral sex while they have a cold sore (or kisses someone with a cold sore and then does so) it can cause genital herpes, aka herpes simplex type 2.

      Get to your doctor and get it checked out NOW. STDs are not something to screw with, especially if you want children in the future.

  49. QUESTION:
    Is surgery my only option for Fibroid tumors?
    Hi I'm a 27 year old female from Los Angeles, CA and was detected that I have 3 Fibroid tumors. This year in May 2010 I got my period and was having excruciating pain that I didn't know why was it that bad. So thinkig it didn't seem normal to me I went to go see a doctor and the doctor told me I had a bladder infection and gave me meds. So from that I thought okay that was the problem then No more worries. Well surely after I didn't get my period in June but I was having early bad cramps since I didn't get my period on time I decided to go see a Gyno she had said I have Yeast infection but she seemed like it's no biggie that it's treatable but had said she wanted me to get a pelvic ultra sound with a radiologist. So since she didn't seemed worried I went to go get the test and got an unexpected suprise that I have 3 Fibroid tumors but away from my uteros. As some of you who have been in my situation know how I felt and was really dumbfounded. I even know a couple of friends who have had it and have been through really bad situations which I would want to go through. I've never had kids but would like to have some one day. I am not sure on the sizes of tumors but from what I saw in the ultrasound two might look like the size of a golf ball around there and one is a little bigger Im just guessing. I'm supposed to go see my gyno in a week. I was away in Australia for a year 2009 and had bad cramp pain but not as much as i've been having it here back home so makes me wonder I may have had it that long. I have faith that I'm hoping that all will go well. I've been told by several people that I can naturally get rid of them but I would have to be in a strict diet and that the fibroids may come back. So would this be an option if I really take care of myself?

    Ladies only who have had it a couple of questions; What was your experience when you had it? Are there certain foods that I should watch out for? What would be my best decision to get rid of these tumors and still have a chance in the future of having a baby with my current partner? How long does it take to recover? I was told there's laser surgery to get them removed. Would that be safe? I dont have insurance but might be getting medical so pray for me and wish me luck. Please share some of your similar experiences with me and maybe some way to aleviate my pain that im having right now. . . I DO NOT WANT MY UTERUS TO GET REMOVED so please any advice you can give me I would truly appreciate it. :)

    THANK YOU!!!

    • ANSWER:
      There is a minimally invasive procedure called uterine fibroid embolization (you can Google this for more info). It is done by an interventional radiologist. A small incision is made in your groin and catheters are inserted until they reach the blood vessels supplying the fibroids. Small particles are injected into these vessels to block them. This causes the fibroids to shrink as they no longer have any blood supply. Over several weeks to months the fibroids shrivel up and you will not have any more symptoms. This is a quick procedure, about an hour and does not require a hospital stay. Ask your gynecologist if you are a candidate for this procedure and if he/she can refer you to a doctor that does this. This procedure is good for young women who want to preserve their uterus for future pregnancny.
      Hope this was helpful.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How do men get rid of yeast infections??
    Can they just use an over the counter cream like monistat? He doesn't have any symptoms but i had one and dont want to risk him passing it back to me. He doesn't have insurance so he cant see a doctor unless it cant be treated with an over the counter cream.

    • ANSWER:
      Diflucan! It's a pill and it works wonders. Call YOUR doctor and let them know your partner has a yeast infection that he got from you and they can write a prescription for Diflucan. Last time I got it without insurance, it was only at the pharmacy.

  2. QUESTION:
    what are men suppose to use to get rid of a yeast infection?
    also where to get it? can they use the same stuff as women? ...caught it from my girlfriend so can i use her cream?

    • ANSWER:
      Go to a doctor:) yeast infections can in fact spread to a female's partner, but usually as a result of a compromised immune system. This means that you both need to refrain from sexual intercourse until you BOTH clear it up, otherwise it will keep going back and forth and you don't want that.

  3. QUESTION:
    how do men get rid of a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Treatment: If you're uncircumcised, you can help prevent balanitis by practicing good hygiene. Each day, gently pull back (retract) the foreskin on your penis and clean the skin with soap and water. Then dry the skin carefully. You may also apply an antifungal cream periodically to prevent recurrence.
      Treatment of balanitis includes:
      * Cleaning under the foreskin of the penis
      * Applying antifungal creams at least twice a day
      * Recurrent balanitis: Diflucan 150 mg one single dose

    I had a yeast infection and didn't know about and gave it to my husband. His penis is irritated and sore. How can he get rid of this? He already tried to use vagisil but it hasnt worked?

    • ANSWER:
      Apply an over the counter fungicide like Lamisil AT, Lotrimin AF, or Monostat Derm. Just about anything for "Jock Itch" should work - jock itch is a yeast infection. Don't wash with antibacterial soap because it may inhibit the growth of friendly bacteria that keep yeast-like forms from multiplying.
      Also do not have intercourse until both of you have completed your treatments. As you just found out, couples can pass the infection back and forth making it difficult to kill completely.

    • ANSWER:
      Penile Yeast Infections

      Also known as candidacies, a yeast infection is a fungal infection that can attack any part of the body that is routinely moist. Yeast organisms are a natural part of every human’s physiological ecosystem, and when something knocks this ecosystem out of balance and allows yeast to grow out of control, you end up with a yeast infection. While vaginal yeast infections are much more common than penile yeast infections, both conditions can be very painful and embarrassing.

      Male Yeast Infection Causes

      Sex: As with most fugal infections, this one can be spread by direct physical contact. If you or your partner has a yeast infection, it’s best to remain celibate until it has been cured or you can end up passing it back and forth. It can also be spread to your mouth (aka thrush) so just be very careful.

      Nonoxynol-9: This is a common spermicide found in many contraceptive products. There is evidence that while this spermicide does kill sperm, it rapidly increases the growth of naturally occurring yeasts.

      Diabetes: Yeast feeds on sugars; the elevated blood-sugar levels associated with diabetes are candy to yeast.

      Antibiotics: As I mentioned earlier, yeasts are a naturally occurring part of the human physiological landscape. They are kept from growing out of control by other organisms that are also naturally occurring. Prolonged use of antibiotics can kill off all of the yeast-balancing organisms leaving lots of room for the yeast to grow.

      The symptoms of a male yeast infection can appear very similar to those of genital herpes. If you exhibit any of these symptoms, swallow your pride and go to your doctor. If you do have a yeast infection, the fastest method of getting rid of it is with oral antibiotics, which will require a prescription anyway.

      The most common set of symptoms includes:

      * Itchiness, redness, and/or soreness localized at the head of the penis
      * Tiny, reddish bumps at the head of the penis
      * White, clumpy discharge

      Treating Male Yeast Infections

      Since most yeast infections are the result of an imbalance in the body’s physiology that allows the naturally occurring yeast to grow out of control, the most effective remedies are oral antibiotics which correct the imbalance from the inside-out. The most commonly prescribed medications are Divulging (falcons) and Numeral (console) which attack the yeast directly.

      Topical treatments include the application of over the counter vaginal yeast infection creams like Monist-at-7 directly to the penis. Due to the internal nature of male yeast infections, these treatments arena’t always effective, so if you don’t see improvement within the first few days, go see your doctor.

  8. QUESTION:
    how do men get rid of yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      The treatment of yeast and other fungal infections requires anti-fungal creams or tablets. Some can be purchased over the counter and the pharmacist can give advice on their suitability.

      If this does not cure the infection then a doctor needs to be consulted since there may be underlying problems or stronger medicines may be needed.

      It is very important to ensure that you fully retract your foreskin and wash under it at least twice a day with soap and water so as to remove the smegma that provides a good breeding ground for fungal and bacterial infections.

      One must also abstain from all sex other than solo masturbation until the infection is completely cured. It is very easy to pass on the infection to a sexual partner by penetrative sex but also by oral sex or even mutual masturbation where the infection can pass on the hands.

  10. QUESTION:
    yeast infection & men, giving it to my boyfriend?
    ok so I've had a yeast infection for a while now. I tried to treat it with monistat 1 then monistat 7. the symptoms went away so I figured the infection was gone. My boyfriend & I had sex about 2 weeks ago but not since then (we usually live about 2 hours apart so we don't see each other very often) My doctor prescribed me diflucan to finally cure my yeast infection. My question is, how long after taking the diflucan should I wait to have sex again? I want to be finally rid of this stupid yeast infection so I don't want to risk giving it to him then reinfecting myself or irritating my vagina anymore with sex. So how long should I wait after taking the diflucan pill before it's safe to have sex? and also, if I had given the yeast infection to my boyfriend 2 weeks ago, would he still have it now or would his body have gotten rid of it naturally by now? I really want to be done with this infection once and for all!

    • ANSWER:
      1. Diflucan (I'm assuming you got the standard single dose here, right?) begins to clear the infection right away, but it can take several days to get rid of it all. I'd give it a week before resuming sex, personally, just to let yourself heal up.

      2. The thing with yeast infections in males is that they can get them (although not as easily as you can) but they often don't have any symptoms. If you had infected your bf two weeks ago, yes, he could still have it. It's not a guarantee that he'd give it to back you or anything, but it's certainly possible if you are prone to yeast overgrowth issues.

  11. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection in a man WITHOUT medicine, creams, etc.?

    P.S. I am uncircumcised and so its the foreskin that is irritated and I cant pull it down the head which I normally can. YES I'm a man, dont ask about the Avatar or Screen Name.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to go to the doctor because that yeast infection can spread to other warm parts of your body.

      Your doctor will likely prescribe Difulcan.

  14. QUESTION:
    can men really contract a yeast infection?
    My wife and i were having intercourse when she says we have to stop because shes hurting too badly. I look to see if shes ok and i can see the first signs of a yeast infection. Can i really catch this and if so how do i get rid of it? I don't want to pass this to her again.

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections are amongst the easiest to catch and the hardest to totally eliminate. Both sexes can catch yeast infections and will readily pass them to a partner during sex.

      If either partner has symptoms of yeast infection then BOTH of you need to see the doctor for a course of treatment. Sex is contraindicated until BOTH of you are declared free of infection by a doctor.

      One of the advantages of being circumcised is that yeast infections are rare since the yeast prefers a warm, dark, moist place to grow - which the foreskin provides, but which is missing in the circumcised.

  15. QUESTION:
    Why can't I get rid of this damn yeast infection?

But it's miserable, it clears up and I make love to my man again and here it comes again.. I can't even have the pleasure of making love to my man without the consequence of getting a yeast infection.. Does ANYBODY else have this problem and have a successful cure? Please don't be rude or crude because I love making love to my honey..

    What are the consequences of a yeast infection for men and women?
    I was diagnosed with a yeast infection and told that I may have gotten it from my boyfriend, who drives trucks all day long and doesn't always shower before coming to see me at the end of the day. He's a very clean and hygienic man, but apparently sitting in a truck all day creates a warm, sweaty environment that can yeast infections in women. The doctor told me that he needs to use a certain spray every day for two weeks to kill the yeast cultures on his skin (very difficult to get rid of), but aside from affecting me, are there any dangers for him? Also, aside from the inconvenience, are there any other health consequences for me? Thanks!
    Thanks for mentioning the drug for treating a yeast infection. I took a one-time pill and was advised that it is processed through the liver, which bothered me, but I accepted it anyway. Important to know.

    • ANSWER:
      Most candidial infections are treatable and result in minimal complications such as redness, itching and discomfort, though complication may be severe or fatal if left untreated in certain populations. In immunocompetent persons, candidiasis is usually a very localized infection of the skin or mucosal membranes, including the oral cavity (thrush), the pharynx or esophagus, the gastrointestinal tract, the urinary bladder, or the genitalia (vagina, penis).

      Candidiasis is a very common cause of vaginal irritation, or vaginitis, and can also occur on the male genitals. In immunocompromised patients, Candida infections can affect the esophagus with the potential of becoming systemic, causing a much more serious condition, a fungemia called candidemia.

      Children, mostly between the ages of three and nine years of age, can be affected by chronic mouth yeast infections, normally seen around the mouth as white patches. However, this is not a common condition.[citation needed]

      Symptoms of candidiasis may vary depending on the area affected. Infection of the vagina or vulva may cause severe itching, burning, soreness, irritation, and a whitish or whitish-gray cottage cheese-like discharge, often with a curd-like appearance. These symptoms are also present in the more common bacterial vaginosis.[citation needed] In a 2002 study published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, only 33 percent of women who were self-treating for a yeast infection actually had a yeast infection, while most had either bacterial vaginosis or a mixed-type infection.Symptoms of infection of the male genitalia include red patchy sores near the head of the penis or on the foreskin, severe itching, or a burning sensation. Candidiasis of the penis can also have a white discharge, although uncommon.[citation needed] However, having no symptoms at all is common, and a more severe form of the symptoms may emerge later, even up to three months of initial contact.[citation needed]

      Candidiasis may be divided into the following types:

      Oral candidiasis (Thrush)
      Perlèche (Angular cheilitis)
      Candidal vulvovaginitis
      Candidal intertrigo
      Diaper candidiasis
      Congenital cutaneous candidiasis
      Perianal candidiasis
      Candidal paronychia
      Erosio interdigitalis blastomycetica
      Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis
      Systemic candidiasis
      Candidid
      Antibiotic candidiasis (Iatrogenic candidiasis)

  17. QUESTION:
    can men get yeast infections and how does he get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:
      Men can certainly get yeast infections. The mouth and esophagus are the most common sites, although it can present as a penile lesion as well. In addition, it can also cause diaper rash in young children, boys as well as girls. The treatment is the same drug women use for vulvovaginal candidiasis (the fancy-schmancy name for a yeast infection), fluconazole, although it has to be given as a pill or in IV form since vaginal tablets and suppositories obviously have no place to go in a man.

  19. QUESTION:
    If a man is carrying a yeast infection that he got from his partner, then what can he do to get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:
      Probiotics!

      http://www.holisticmed.com/detox/dtx-probio.txt

      http://www.mothernature.com/Library/Ency/Index.cfm/Id/2901004

      To the person who suggested an antibiotic. Antibiotics are one of the numberone causes of yeast infections. You need the opposite of an antibiotic. A probiotic. Just as antibiotics cause diahrea beacase of an imbalance of beneficial/harmful bacteria in you rgut the balance is also out in your genital area. An antibiotic will only exacerbate you r problem. And a yeast infection is something that you want immediate relief.

      Only caveat: You may want to make very sure you have only a yeast infection since many stds present the same symptoms. Its very rare for a male to get a yeast infection unless other heath issues are present. Most stds are very treatable and not treating them can lead to long term health problems.

      After you shower, make sure you dry the area completely with a fresh towel. Until this goes away, wash your towels in hot water even if the tag says use warm water. You can always buy new towels if hot water makes them shrink to no good use.

    I have a doc's appointment tomorrow, but i really don't want to keep getting it again and again and again. Its a pain in the butt!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hello Kasmira,

      Yes, men can get it and it's not as common as when it occurs in women, but it is probably due to deeper reasons than just having the yeast present.

      Answering your question with the straight answer as fast as possible; yes, there is way to cure it without having to go to the doctor, and it seems to even be the better way. (as you will find in the source website linked below)

      Yeast is present in EVERYONE, and it's perfectly healthy; but when it overgrows, that's when it becomes a yeast infection.

      For men, the problem would usually be that the body is unable to fight the yeast infection, and it's usually caused by other factors other than just being exposed to the yeast that you have - because a man's resistance to yeast is usually strong enough to not have it grow.

      Monistat only kills the yeast fungus directly and it doesn't fix what caused it in the first place. In this case, it is his lowered resistance to the yeast fungus, and it would simply overgrow again and may even eventually develop a resistance to Monistat.

      Once you fix the root cause, he won't be the one spreading it to you anymore, because the yeast will not even be able to overgrow (into a yeast infection), and he won't have it.

      The website has all the details.

      Additional note:

      Antibiotics are actually listed as a CAUSE of the yeast infection, so it's probably a no no. It is not the right cure for this in this case. That's just a little tip in case you're going to use that.

  22. QUESTION:
    Men yeast infections?
    Can men really get yeast infections? And how do they get rid of it? Does monistat work?

    • ANSWER:
      Sex, diet, antibiotics and sanitary are the few among many other known factors that cause yeast infection in men. Sadly, a lot of men will get through their daily life without knowing they have a yeast infection. This is because the male and female bodies are built differently.

      Men will only be aware of a yeast infection if it creates other complications in their health, but for the women, a simple vaginal infection and discharge will start sending alarms. This is because the outside temperature of the skin surrounding the penis is 77 degrees, thus keeps the yeast infection dormant for long.

      The social life of men is also known to contribute to yeast infections. Men who are known to take beer in excess tend to have skin yeast particularly around their penis. Yeast is basically known to raise bread while cooking, isn’t it possible that it can also swell a prostrate gland? This explains the reason why sexually active men are more affected by prostrate problems like prostate cancer than young boys. Yeast will basically go up the urethral canal, to the prostrate gland, and an over production of it will swell the gland.

  24. QUESTION:
    can a man get a yeast infection?
    can a man get a yeast infection? if so what happens? how would you get rid of it?
    if you've had it for a long time, is that worse?

    • ANSWER:
      I am going to presume you mean a yeast infection *on the penis* - not so silly as you can actually get them other places.

      Yes, absolutely. If you are intact (that is, have a foreskin) it is somewhat easier, as that allows more moist "hidey places" for the yeast to prosper, but even circumcised men get them. Other people have pointed out that - just as for women - getting too hot and muggy "down there" with tight clothing and getting sweaty is provocative, as is taking antibiotics because they tend to kill the "good germs" that protect the area, leaving the yeast a wide open opportunity.

      And yes, Candida (yeast) is often sexually transmitted - but by no means is that the only way you get it. Actually, it is often in the bowel from contamination on food, and gets from there to the genitals. If it is a problem, you clearly need to treat both partners (that is, your partner and yourself) as you really do not know who had it first (much of the time it is there and you don't realise it) and even if they do not know about it, the other person probably has it as well and will give it back as soon as you complete your own treatment.

      The other treatment, particularly if it is chronic (long-standing) is Fluconazole (Diflucan®/ Canesoral®) taken orally (albeit somewhat more expensive than other preparations) which tends to knock out the Candida not only on the genitals, but also in the bowel, removing the "reservoir" for re-infection. And it necessarily permeates the full skin thickness and all the "nooks and crannies" which is otherwise difficult with creams.

      Incidentally, I am presuming you mean yeast, specifically Candida commonly called "Thrush", rather than other fungal infections which are *not* yeast.

    thanks lot

    • ANSWER:
      Most often yeast infection grows spontaneously, and contrary to popular believes, yeast infection is NOT sexually transmitted.Apart from this, clothing that increase moisture and heat in genital area like wearing tight nylon under wears, thongs, bathing suits etc can also cause yeast infection. Also activities like exercising, jogging, riding bicycles in humid or hot environments that raise temperature in vagina and makes it moist is also found to increase the risk of getting affected with yeast infection considerably. Also poor diet,stress and lack of sleep all play there part in lowring your immunity to these infections. Just a thought if you have diabetes this can also make you more prone to the infection has well
      If your symptoms are more severe or you have repeat vaginal yeast infections, you may need to take a longer course of therapy, up to 14 days.

      Some women who continue to have repeat infections may need to take a clotrimazole vaginal suppository or one oral dose of fluconazole every week to prevent new infections.

      To help prevent and treat vaginal discharge:

      * Keep your genital area clean and dry. Avoid soap and rinse with water only. Sitting in a warm, but not hot bath may help your symptoms.
      * Avoid douching. Although many women feel cleaner if they douche after menstruation or intercourse, it may actually worsen vaginal discharge because it removes healthy bacteria lining the vagina that protect against infection.
      * Eat yogurt with live cultures or take Lactobacillus acidophilus tablets when you are on antibiotics to prevent a yeast infection.
      * Use condoms to avoid catching or spreading sexually transmitted diseases.
      * Avoid using feminine hygiene sprays, fragrances, or powders in the genital area.
      * Avoid wearing extremely tight-fitting pants or shorts, which may cause irritation.
      * Wear cotton underwear or cotton-crotch pantyhose. Avoid underwear made of silk or nylon, because these materials are not very absorbant and restrict air flow. This can increase sweating in the genital area, which can cause irritation.
      * Use pads and not tampons.
      * Keep your blood sugar levels under good control if you have diabetes.

    Sore throat and yeast infection?
    I have had a sore throat for a few weeks now. I have performed oral sex on a man....but I didn't swallow any ***. I cannot get rid of my sore throat, and the doctor doesn't know what it is. Yesterday, I noticed that I had a coating on my tongue....I could scrape it off. I went to another doctor, and he said that I have a yeast infection in my mouth. I am freaking out that I may have HIV.....as I have heard that right after you get HIV you can have a sore throat right away! I am freaking out, and am at work right now and cannot leave to go and get tested. Does anyone have any insight to what I could have?? Could it be HIV?? Could it be some other STD?? I also have a lowered immune system as I am on immunosuppresants as well! Any info is good!
    Just to add......I don't think it may be HIV cause of what I have read, but more like gonorhea.....but it still could be HIV. I just worry a lot! The chances of getting HIV are very low through Oral Sex.....hopefully I am right about that!
    Maybe lacey you should be a little more sensitive when people have serious issues!

    • ANSWER:
      first off calm down---I had this same problems a few weeks ago---I wanted to get tested and I was at work---I waited until the next morning and called and said i had to take my mom to the doctor for a procedure and i needed to drive her home and that i would be in shortly--call this number for a clinic that does rapid HIV testing in your area...all it is, is a finger prick of blood, you get the results in 20 minutes.

      1-800-922-2437

      The risk of getting HIV through receiving oral sex is very, very low.

      We can't say that there's zero risk, because there are a few cases of HIV infection in people who have no other known risk factors for HIV.

      Also, we can imagine a scenario where an HIV-positive person's mouth is bleeding when he or she is giving oral sex. This could increase the risk of infecting the partner. But, in general, transmitting HIV to someone receiving oral sex is probably a very rare occurrence.

      The risk of getting HIV through giving oral sex is low compared with unprotected vaginal or anal sex, but there is some risk. The risk appears to be higher if you have cuts or sores in your mouth. Risk also appears to increase with the amount of your partner's fluids that contact your mouth and throat. If there is blood in these fluids, that probably increases the risk as well.

      Of course, if your partner is not HIV infected, there is no risk of getting HIV. But if your partner is HIV positive, or you are not sure, it makes sense to use a condom or other barrier (a latex sheet, for example) for oral sex.

      oral gonorrhea
      An oral infection often causes a sore throat, and a pus-like material on the tonsils or on the back of the throat. Infections in these areas can easily spread to other parts of the body so it is important to get treated as soon as possible.

      Oral chlamydia, usually passed through oral sex, can result in a sore throat and throat infection

  34. QUESTION:
    No offense guys, but can you have multiple partners without getting a yeast infection?
    Im gonna be REALLY honest. Ive been...uh having multipal partners lately. Like sleeping with 3 people rotating em in a three month period. Im prone to yeast infections. I finally got rid of the latest one, and Im thinking about scaling it down to one person.

    (and no, Im not a ho, I just live in a small town and it seems everyone sleeps around, especially the men. Cant get a real relationship to save your life, but aw well, Love is a crock anyway, RIGHT??!

    Id REALLY REALLY would rather be with just one person, but Ive had my heart broken several times, and If I relied on just one guy Id only get laid twice a month, and that sux)

    Its mens fault that Im a ho now, cuz none of em will commit.

    • ANSWER:
      However many partners you decide to have, is really up to you. But if you really would rather be with just one person, be with just one person. You really still can change your life around so people view you differently how you want to be viewed and have someone commit. You arent required to sleep around.

      In terms of the yeast infection, it doesnt have to be from having several partners. Some women are definitely more prone to them. I would recommend talking to a doctor because they can confirm if there is anything else going on down there that you need stronger medication for.
      You can get it from a lot of sex just because there is bacteria going in and out. I would hope you are using condoms----who knows how dirty those guys are? You can also get it from thongs, not drying off after the shower enough, tight fitting pants, and even not having a healthy diet (its all about your ph balance in your body). Anytime you get moisture down there, it can lead to an infection.

      Good luck and I would see a doctor to help you.

  36. QUESTION:
    male penile yeast infection?
    Today, my boyfriend and I were having sex, but, because of discomfort he was having on his penis, we stopped. His penis had what looked like a rash, kind of swollen bumps, and more to the head of his penis. After minutes of stopping, the rash subsided and and the cluster of bumps shrunk. I have also been having signs of a yeast infection: itching, thick white discharge, and have read somewhere that if a man has sex with a woman during a yeast infection, it is possible that his penis will react with swollen bumps. They bumps to not hurt or burn, he says they itch a little. Is it a possibility that he has a yeast infection? And what can help to get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:
      probably best to go to the doctors or family planning clinic to get it checked.
      yeast infections do give the symptoms youre describing and can be treated by over the counter creams.
      you may have bacterial vaginosis which is not an std but gives itching and strong smelling
      discharge that can be brought on by sex, perfumed shower gels etc doc will prescribe antibiotics for this. men cannot catch this but can get yeast infections
      great tip for yeast infections is to soak a tampon in natural yoghurt and insert into your vagina

  37. QUESTION:
    I can't get rid of my urinary tract infections and yeast infections. Please help me!?
    I keep getting urinary tract infections and yeast infections. I drink MAYBE one pop a week. I don't drink caffeine or hardly anything with carbonation. I drink water ALL the time, and milk. However I continue to get urinary tract infections. I don't know why. Then when they give me antibiotics to treat it I get a yeast infection from the antibiotics and then THAT has to be treated. So then I get that taken care of and a week or so later I have a urinary tract infection back! I am a breast-feeding mother so whatever methods I use has to be safe with breast-feeding. I have drank bottles of cranberry juice and everything. I don't know what else to do. Nobody can figure out what it is. However, me and my husband have unprotected sex because I am allergic to latex. He is very careful, and pulls out every single time. I understand the risk of getting pregnant, but there are no birth controls that I know of safe to take while breast-feeding. But anyway, could I be getting urinary tract infections from him? He drinks pop all day every day and he has no problems what-so-ever, but I heard that it can be present in men with no symptoms. I just don't know what to do. Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      I hope you know the pull out method isn't very effective. And you may be getting a yeast infection because his sperm is alkaline and it corrupts your vaginal PH. Men can sometimes have yeast infections when they have sex with an infected partner. Thus the infection keeps getting spread back and forth. Acidophilus of the Lactobacillius strain is proven to prevent vaginal infections and urinary infections in women. It's safe and naturally occurring in the body. There is a blog on my profile page that you can go to to get more information. Try out the product Fem-Dophilus it is proven to work.

  38. QUESTION:
    yeast infection help?
    okay everytime me and my bf have sex i get a realy bad yeast infection, ive looked it up and it says that if a man has one they can use the same cream a woman does ... to avoid telling him can't i just use the cream then have sex and get rid of his and mine at the same time? do you think it will work?

    • ANSWER:
      Does your bf have the symptoms of a yeast infection? http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/male-yeast-infection/HO00172

      Also, you should never have sex if you have a yeast infection. That is messy and painful and painful among other things.

      Are you using condoms? Maybe not if you think your bf may have it. I just ask because you could be allergic to latex and maybe should try latex free condoms. Eitherway always have safe sex.

      Some women are prone to get low grade yeast infections after menstruation and sex. There are things you can do to prevent from getting them. Every day you should have some plain, unsweetened, no fruit or sugar substitue yogurt, like about 17 ounces total. It tastes blah and yuck but it keeps the bacterial in your vaginal area good bacteria and balanced. Also, take acidophilus daily and trible strength cranberry tabs daily (both found in vitamin isles in stores and acidophilus often needs to go in fridge so read bottle).

      Also try to urinate soon after sex and douching is not good, it pushes bad bacteria up into you.

      Here is my experience on yeast infections and advice: If you want you can buy the medications like Monistat for your yeast infection. Never buy the 1 or 3 day treatments, it is well known the 7 days work best. Just cuz you take it 1 or 3 days does not mean its better in that time. Also get some vagisil for the outside or Monistat comes with a combo pack.

      However, I hate using those gross creams. I have not bought them for over 15 years and my yeast infections get treated fast. I bought me a big bottle of Triple Strenth Cranberry Tabs and a bottle of Probiotic Acidophilus (this one goes in the fridge after opening my bottle says) and Natures cure yeast. You get these in the vitamin medicine isle at your stores. Now you can take these daily which will help prevent them but I dont get yeast infections that often so I just take them when I get one. So I always have those on hand. Then whenever I get a yeast infection I go out to the store and all I have to buy is plain yogurt. Plain meaning no fruit, sugar, artificial sweeteners etc. It tastes like crap but it kills yeast cells..the lactobacillus acidophilus in there. So when I have a yeast infection I take double the cranberry tablets and double the probiotic tablets each day and I eat like 3 big spoons of yogurt 3 times a day. Also to make yourself feel better in those early itchy days each night take a bath so you can soak. No soaps or bubbles and not hot water, cool is best. It really makes you feel good and clean. You can also just buy the Vagisil to put on the outside if you want. and although it sounds gross some people put a little of the yogurt on the outside to stop that itchy feeling and kill yeast at the same time instead of b uying the Vagasil.

      Sugar makes yeast multiply so make sure you dont consume lots of sugary products during a yeast infection.

  39. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection that won't go away?
    I've had yeast infection since March because of antibiotics (I had to take a few treatments). First time Diflucan helped, but after another antibiotic the infection came back but never went away. I tried some vaginal creams to treat the infection and it didn't help. My gyno put me on a 6-month treatment with Diflucan (1 pill every week for 6 months). I already took 4 pills and it's not even getting better at all. It's not too bad, it doesn't itch at all, it doesn't hurt when i have sex but there's a lot of white discharge. And it's kinda weird because sometimes i feel like i don't have it anymore but later the same day the discharge comes back. And everytime we have sex, my boyfriend's penis is covered with this white stuff, it's just disgusting, man. My doc sent the culture to the lab and they confirmed that it's yeast.
    Have you ever had this kind of problem before and how did you get rid of it?
    Thank you all

    • ANSWER:
      I had sort of recurring yeast infections from the birth control I was on. I ended up switching types, and it finally cleared up. I would also have your boyfriend checked, it could be that you both keep passing it back and forth to each other, maybe he needs to be on meds too. Sometimes guys don't have any symptoms.

      Aside from the medicine, there's also a lot of natural things out there that can help get rid of them. Try eating raw garlic - kind of disgusting, but it's supposed to be an anti-fungal. Also eating yogurt with probiotic cultures in them (but not kinds with lots of sugars, eating sugar can help yeast grow). Same with cranberry juice, the more real cranberries, and less sugar the better

      Some people also swear by a diet that restricts yeast (in breads, etc, as well as certain other foods). Just be careful about douches, as they can sometimes change the ph in your body and could be more harmful that helpful.

  40. QUESTION:
    this is making my life horrible!?
    i had Bacterial Vaginosis and a yeast infection.
    i was treated for both. then had sex with my boyfriend
    after and it came back.
    same symptoms. i thought the yeast infection came back so
    i took medicine again for that. 2 days later, it gets worse.
    this is really affecting our relationship..
    so the question im really asking is that i know i probably gave
    him BV and yeast, and he gave it back to me when we had sex again.
    so how do men get rid of yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis??
    does he have to go to the doctor himself or can he get anything
    over the counter????
    please help.
    thanks everyone.

    • ANSWER:
      Men cannot get either one. Those are only things found in women, hence "Vaginosis" you could pass a UTI on, but not the others.

      Bacteria is from not being clean, you HAVE to clean yourself everyday, he does too, if not germs get inside you causing an infection. The yeast infection can come from to tight of pants, not changing underwear, thongs, even men. men carry a lot of naturan yeast in their mouths so if you dont clean yourself after he goes down on you then you can get a yeast infection that way too.

      You both need to maek sure to clean yourselfs daily, and use the bathroom before and after sex, if you dont before, at least after, and clean yourself.

      You have to get antibiotics for the bacterial infection, so gotta go to the doctor.

    • ANSWER:
      Could be another vaginal infection called bacterial vaginosis. A very common vaginal infection seen in women who are and are not sexually active. Often caused when the growth of bad bacteria in the vagina gets to be too much. It's possible that the treatment of your yeast infection could have caused this. It's often seen that when women are treated for bacterial vaginosis with antibiotics, many women can develop a yeast infection due to the killing of the bacteria. They'll most likely take a vaginal swab, and if clue cells are present (seen under a microscope) then you have bacterial vaginosis. It is easily treated with antibiotics.

    today, but when i sleep with him again ill get the infection right back
    again... so what does he have to take to get rid of BV and yeast infection w/o going to a doctor??
    thanks everyone!

    • ANSWER:
      Your BF needs to go see HIS doctor asap. If you dont use condoms when you are developing a yeast infection and have sex with a man with no condom YOU pass the infection onto his penis!
      Then you can keep reinfecting yourself with your own original infection everytime you have sex.
      HE needs to see a doctor too and get checked out. He probably needs medication to stop the yeast infection on his penis.

  46. QUESTION:
    Help!!! I need a new birth contol method!!!?
    I've been on the pill for about a year now and at first it was great. It reduced my cramps and that was a big problem for me when i was younger. I have tried the patch after i had my son but it gave me a rash and the edges didn't stick very well. But about 6 months ago i went to the doctor for my annual and they told me i had a yeast infection. I didnt have any side effects so i wasn't aware. I took the one dose pill and got rid of it but ever since i've gotten a yeast infection about every 2 months (with side effects...it's horrible) and i can't take it anymore. It just dawned on me that it was the pill and my doctor gave me some with a lower dose but yet again i have a yeast infection!!! Obviously it's the hormones so i don't think the ring will be good for me either. People have recommended the IUD but i've heard a lot of horror stories. My husband can't use condoms (he's larger than most men and there uncomfortable) and i dont want to mess with sponges or female condoms. Help!!!
    Well we definately want more children, we only have one 18 months old son. And yes we've tried the XL comdoms trust me they don't fit. And i've really only had a problem with the pill because when i was on the patch i didn't get any infections.

    • ANSWER:
      You've greatly limited your choices. Do all hormones affect you or just certain ones? The depo provera injection is a hormone, but not the same as the pill.

      I have a friend who has used an IUD for years and just had one replaced. It's her method of choice.

      Not everything works for everyone. Do some research online on the pros and cons of all the forms of birth control, and decide what you'd like to try to see what works for you.

      I hope you find something soon that you find satisfactory. Are children in your future? If not, perhaps you or your husband would consider getting sterilized.

  47. QUESTION:
    My 17 year old son hates me and I don't know what to do?
    His dad and I are divorced. Our marriage was horrible. The kids saw their father beat me many times. He broke bones, threatened to kill me, held me at gun point, busted cans of beer against my head. Sometimes I wonder how I surviived. Quite simply, it was a marriage that should have never happened. Two completely different people. He cheated too. I was totally oblivious to it. I was pretty much isolated. He took my car away from me. I didn't even realize he was cheating until my sister took me to the doctor for what I thought was a really bad yeast infection that I couldn't get rid of. It ended up being gonorrhea. At that point, he was the only man I had EVER slept with so I know I got it from him. I didn't leave. I stayed hoping he would one day love me enough to stop the craziness.
    I ended up going back to school, finishing me education. Then I guess I got tired of waiting for him to love me and want me, so I found someone to love me. It was wrong, I know. I shouldn't have cheated. I took the coward's way out but at that point I was a coward, afraid to leave. So I had an affair. He found out and had me evicted from our home which was in his name only. Our lifestyle completely changed. We went from living in the country with huge house and yard to living in town, small house and yard. Of course now my kids don't have the life they had. They see him every other weekend, when he isn't drunk. I work three jobs (1 fulltime and 2 part time) to give them what they want and need. He raely pays child support and I don't have the money to take him back to court.
    My daughters and I are very close but my son hates me. He lives with me but constantly threatens me, calls me a stupid whore or bitch. He has been physical with me. He throws things, punches holes in the walls, just like his father. He completely disrespects me although I have tried my best. I love him, he is my son! But I don't know what to do! Since we got divorced his father has done nothing was bad mouth me to him, completely turned him against me. What do I do?
    We argue constantly. He completely ignores my house rules, such as curfew. He tells me I can't tell him what time to come home because his dad bought his truck! Sometimes I can't stand him because he acts just like his dad! What do I do? I love him because he is my son, but I don' t like the person he has become because he acts just like his dad. I feel awful.
    Another thing he hates is that I am still with the man I had an affair with. We have been together for about 5 years. We don't live together. I know that because he is the one my ex husband blames for our marriage failing that my son dislikes him. Hates would be a better word. In addition, I am white, as is my ex. My fiance is black. My ex is very racist and has taught our son to be the same. So this is another bone of contention.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, hope I can help.

      Don't take this the wrong way...

      But your son is a product of his prior environment. What this means is he has learned from example to behave this way. This is his fathers fault. I give you kudos though for working your butt of to try and make the lifestyle your children had before. Some things that I would try is to have him court ordered into an anger managment program. If he doesn't get help soon, he will be worse than his father. Do not let him see him anymore. If all else fails, call a social worker for advice...

      This is not your fault
      Best of luck + God Bless

  49. QUESTION:
    Very bad smell after boyfriend ejaculates in me?
    I have only let two men do this, and both times this has happened. After I let my boyfriend ejaculate in me it smells horrrrrrrrrrrrid the next day, and I wash down there too, and even after I wash It takes about two days to get rid of the smell. I got some summers eve feminine wash to see if that helps tonight. It sucks because I really don't like to have sex with that smell, and I don't want him going down on me, so no morning sex lol. I saw where someone said it means you have bacterial vaginosis, that can't be right because the only two guys were a year apart, and ive had two pap smears since then and this past one I did have a yeast infection but thats been treated.

    • ANSWER:
      Bad vaginal odour can be a symptom of vaginal infections, but it can simply be a result of bacterial imbalance. Your vagina has an acidic pH, where as semen has an alkaline pH - your vagina cannot adjust straight away to this sudden pH change so it can throw-off the natural balance of bacteria which can cause odour and that odour can last a few days. Sex itself can alter vaginal pH too, when you orgasm your vaginal pH does drop, lubrication will also effect pH.

      Some women find certain partners cause more problems because just as women's vagina's can have differing pH the same is true of different men and the pH of their semen - you may also have particularly acidic pH, at certain points in your cycle this may be more of an issue, also if your vaginal pH is already a little off-balance it may mean more chance of this happening.

      Do NOT use products like Summers Eve.
      Your vagina is self-cleaning, it doesn't need products like these and in fact such products are unhygienic because these are obviously alkaline so effect vaginal pH, they can also wash away or kill healthy bacteria, amongst other problems. Such products are made purely to make money out of women's paranoid and insecurity about their vaginal scent - don't buy into their marketing ploy.

      Best thing to do is wash after sex with just water - only ever use water to wash with, no soaps, washes, wipes, or douching - if it is particularly bad then add a few drops of tea tree oil to the water to wash over your vulva; sit over the toilet and use a jug to pour water over your vulva. Make sure to dry well and then keep up good vaginal hygiene; cotton panties, no synthetic or tight clothing, no liners, avoid commercial pads and tampons like the plague, wash regularly, etc.

      You may also have some luck seeing if you can change pH - tests your pH and test his, you can alter vaginal pH and semen pH by changing your diet slightly which may help, there are plenty of sites that discuss this because vaginal pH plays a part in TTC. I would also point out that your vaginal pH changes during your cycles, maybe during your least fertile days, when your vaginal pH is higher, use condoms to prevent his semen causing a problem with your vaginal pH.

    Schizophrenia is for people who hear things and those things aren't true everything I hear is true, people pay money to psycics for the same gift God gives me. and actually being healed and seeing people healed hardley sounds like flimsey eveidence to me of God. i tell you these things to encourage you, i hope the best for you guys, I dont want anyone to go to hell. its a hard thing to believe in somthing that sounds to good to be tre=ue but God is a loving God and hasn'[t given up on you guys even if you have given up on him. hes awesome like that.
    i dont try to prove God to make him seem more real to me, I tell you about my life to encourage you. Im not trying to win an argument. everyone likes to be right but in the end being right doesn't matter as much as knowing the truth.

    • ANSWER:
      Schizophrenia is a mental disorder you know. If you think you hear the voice of God, it's a good time to consider consulting a psychologist or a psychiatrist.
