yeast infections

Anyone else have constant yeast infections? I don't know what to do. Doctor keeps telling me monistat 7. Any natural remedies or suggestions?

Plain natural yoghurt. Dunk a tampon (non aplicator kind) into the yoghurt, get a decent amount on there and insert then leave in for a hour or so. Dont put it too far up, its best to sit down while its in, watch tv or something and then remove...u will need to put a liner on after taking out. If its not gone by the next day, repeat. Ive never had to do this more than twice. The yoghurt sooths the itch too

It may be a bacterial infection rather than yeast. But if your getting them constantly your Dr. Should be giving you medicine not tell you to go get OTC stuff. I was having them constantly and used OTC an it never helped. Found out it was bacterial and got meds for it. Went away

The yoghurt works to sooth bacterial vaginosis while taking the meds too. Just make sure it is plain UNsweetened or it will make it worse lol
