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.
So I think I have a yeast infection is it okay to take over the counter meds for it? Not the pill but the cream? I know it's tmi sorry :/ 13 weeks and 3 days btw.
This is the first time I had a yeast infection. I got a pill for it, it went away. But then it came back the next week. Did anyone go through this? Is there anything I can use?
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...
albicans, but antifungal treatments take care of Candida species of yeast. If you want to treat a yeast infection you will need to essentially kill the fungi with antifungal medications as discussed above, which can be purchased by prescription or over-the-counter (OTC). Vaginal yeast infections happen because there is an overgrowth of the fungus Candida albicans, and less frequently other Candidaspecies.
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.
So I during my check up last week my doctor informed me that I have a yeast infection. I was asymptomatic and had no clue I had one till he said so. He prescribed me an antifungal which is a class c drug. I didnt feel comfortable taking that so I did some research and found out that garlic has anti yeast properties and is natural. Since I didnt want to just be shoving garlic in my 'cooter' fearing infection etc.
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.
When that bacteria is killed off, by anti bacterials or for other reasons, it allows the over growth of yeast. I got a yeast infection last years when trying to fight a sinus infection.
My mid wife told me you can also dip a tampon in yogurt and insert it for direct affect. But you defiantly do NOT want to have sex while you a yeast infection he can get it and hold that bacteria and yall will just swap it back and forth. You have to be real careful and tend to the yeast infection because not treated (not to scare you) it can cause miscarriages.
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...
