Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infection yogurt tampon

yeast-infection

Okay, this may be TMI...but I am confused...Okay, I came down with a yeast infection on Tuesday because of some antibiotics I was on last week to prevent my onset of strep throat getting any worse. Okay, well I called the doc and they said that Monistat (sp) will be fine to take at 19 weeks. Well I took that Tuesday night around 11pm, I expected it to take around 24 hours to work. Well, 24 hours was 2 days ago! I am not sure if it is safe for me to take another dose.
Monistat is probably the only med they recommend for yeast infection during pregnancy. Can't your doc prescribe something?? How long can you go on like this? Good luck to you. I hope it goes away!
I had a friend recommend using panty liners to prevent yeast infection just change them frequently like you would a pad or tampon.
In the last year I started getting yeast infections more regularly than I'd like so I thought maybe its a yeast infection no big deal. I bought probiotics, yogurt, made sure I'm wearing cotton underwear, watch my diet, and keep away from sexual activity for as long as possible. However when I would have sex my husband would say something wasn't right. Due to insurance reasons I was trying to put off going to the doctor but finally gave in when nothing was working.
not to be gross but do you think you have a yeast infection and you got yeast on your finger thinking it was cotton from the tampon? i dont really think a tampon would disinigrate like that. i also think if it were still in there, you would feel it (a "thickness" in there). def. keep your eye on it. you may need to call your dr. especially since you are itching and stuff.
hope i dont have an infection. i have no symptoms, and the tampon is out. can i use a tampon right after i pulled old one out? probably should take a "breather". if i dont have symptoms am i in the clear?
I have heard some people say the one day treatment doesn't work. Yogurt helps, but I don't think it will make it go away unless you do a tampon of yogurt. You can look up home remidies(spelling) for yeast infections. Or try another monistat treatment.
I'm not so sure about eating the yogurt but I was told by a female dr that dipping a tampon in natural yogurt and inserting it works! Probably not the nicest thing to do anytime never mind actually being safe during pregnancy!
After about 3 months I did a bit of research and realised I had a yeast infection but I was still too embarrassed but I found canesten so I used that but nothing happened and I even tried garlic cloves and inserting a tampon with natural plain yogurt but still no results.
is I use toilet paper in my panties (keeps dryer than a pad) and change it every time I go when I have a yeast infection bc it keeps it dry down there...
need to get this out of my head- it sounds like you have more of an infection than herpes...i too am having trouble getting rid of a yeast infection. the diflucan did not work for me, neither did monistat. i have found some relief using terazol cream which is supposed to treat more than one strain of yeast, however mine is not totally gone so i completely know how you feel! i've found that doing everything possible to keep that area dry is helping ease symptoms.
Did anyone know that taking antibiotics for any kind of infection will sometimes give u a yeast infection. Did anyone know that yogurt with live active yeast cultures will help ease a yeast infection by directly putting plain yogurt on the genital area, where it will replace the natural bacteria that should be in the vagina but was killed off by antibiotics or bacteria killing antibodies found in the body. Did anyone know there are lots of reasons why a female will get yeast infections.
Does this sound more like herpes or a yeast infection? Can an untreated yeast infection last this long? Anyone with a similar experiece? I know I should have already seen a doctor but it's easy to put off when you have no insurance. I do have an appointment coming up soon though, but ANY help would be greatly appreciated!
I am 21 weeks pregnant and I thought I had a yeast infection and several obgyn visits ago I told my doctor that I get them a lot so she prescribed me some cream. The time before when I thought I had one it turned out not to be and so I didn't use the cream, but this time I did. You insert it vaginally and push like you would if it was a tampon. Sorry it this is too much info, but have no other way to describe. I have been having a lot of discharge...which is usual being pregnant...
i get bacterial vaginosis alot-its very common, the gel is probley metrogel- it works great but you should have been told that anti-biotics can cause a yeast infection and just eating yogurt with active cultures will solve this problem. The way my dr explained it to me is if there is an odor of fishlike than its an infection.
When I had a yeast infection, I went to the gyn and he gave me a cream to use for 3 nights. I did it, thought it went away and had sex with BF a couple of times. Well my symptoms came back because BF was then infected. Guys dont show symptoms of it, so you never know. I went back to the doctor, he said no sex for 2 weeks gave me a cream and 1 pill for me to take and 1 pill for BF to take. Finally it worked.
It will not lose its probiotic strength because it is frozen, when it thaws out in your vagina the cultures become active again. You can also dip a tampon into the yogurt and insert if you have a yeast infection with your period. Also there are Hemorroid/vaginal pads which have witch hazel in them and they are great for cooling. At night when you have infection take 1 or 2 Benadryl before bed this will help with the itching and take down some of the swelling.
I read on a website that an at home remedy for yeast infections was to put yogurt in an empty tampon applicator, freeze it, then insert into your vagina. Is this something that would really work? It just seems very strange to me.
I have a yeast infection but don’t want to take any prescription meds. Does anyone know of a natural alternative I can use?
This may sound crazy, but the only time I seem to get a yeast infection is after receiving oral sex. If my boyfriend goes down 3 or 4 nights in a row I start developing one. I was just wondering if anyone else has expierencied this, or knows if there could possibly be something in his mouth causing this. (Obviously I would notice and not let him go there if is something I could see) Any suggestions would be great.
when i went to see hin he said that it was NOT trichomonas but just a normal yeast infection that every woman gets. So he gave again another treatment of just 1 pill(diflucan) and a cream i have to put inside once daily, that was last friday(28-aug-09)..BUT i STILL got the damn infection and to make things wors just this morning me and my partner had sex and he cald me saying that his penis is burning and that he has to pee like every second again and again. HELP HELP its verry fustrating.
so i'm almost 100% positive i have a yeast infection right now (actually... i think it started about 2 weeks ago). however i'm in china right now and i don't think they sell monistat here. i've only ever used monistat for yeast infections... and i really don't know what they have in china (i don't just wanna use any antifungal...
Help I have had a yeast infection for 2 weeks now and i cut myself in the itching process and i am afraid it has turned into something worse...it burns when i pee cause it huts the wound and nothing seems to help it...i have developed bumps now on my vagina...not blisters from herpes they are red on the outsdie and white on the inside...i have only been with one partner for 2 and 1/2 years now and we have both been tested before any other thoughts on this besdies herpes..
I also suffered from the same problem and I found that buying plain nonfat yogurt with active cultures and dipping a tampon into the yogurt then inserting it,you will need to wear a pad because it will leak and you do this at bedtime.
Eating yogurt is said to help reduce this, but the main thing that women are never told is that men can be carriers and yes you can get a yeast infection in the mouth. Chronic yeast infections warrant your partner to be checked. There is medication that can be given to them as well.
I had my first yeast infection like 3 month ago, 2 weeks ago I went to the gyno and she gave me a pill name Fluconazole (Difulcan) first it was only 1 pill.She told me that this pill is so strong that it will stay in my body for a month. That I shouldn't have sex again in a month but she never told me nothing about monistat, I know about this cream 'cause before I went to the gyno I was using it. So ladys NO SEX IN A MONTH....
I've had what I assumed was a yeast infection for about the past two weeks. I had moderate to large amounts of a milky/slightly yellow CM, and had some itching and burning sensations (but never when I urinated). Now I'm not sure that's what it is, I've been reluctant to use Monistat or anything of that nature as I'm not 100% certain I'm not pregnant. The other night I found a good-sized lump INSIDE my vagina right under the skin on the left side.
The problem is, I CONSTANTLY am having some sort of problem with my vagina area. I either have a yeast infection, or then I have vaginosis. The doctor tells me that the vaginosis is due to "your 'fluids' and your husband's 'fluids' just do not mix" and that is the reason I keep getting the vaginosis. What can you do?
