I have yeast infections regularly. I have used acidophilus, AZO yeast, and AZO cranberry.

The only thing that I have found that can prevent yeast infections is taking Acidophilus on a daily basis. Also, I have noticed that I have a lot fewer yeast infections since I reduced the amount of sugar in my diet.

Yogurt has worked well for me.

I suspect in my case that the recurring infections I have are partly to do with a little flap of excess skin on my perineum because of childbirth. Using lubrication before intercourse also seems to help reduce the number of infections I get.

I have had frequent yeast infections for 12+ years ranging from itchy, irritating, to so raw and bleeding. Recently I ate a clove of garlic and it was gone the next day. I couldn't believe it! Garlic is natural and safe and kills bad bacteria! Try it, it really worked. To kill the garlic smell, eat fresh parsley.

I just had an operation on appendicitis, and I think it's getting well, but I just had a little concern regarding to the way I feel right now. Every time I move or walk I feel dizzy and before I had an operation my doctor asked me if I have any vaginal discharge, but I said I don't have any even though I have yeast infection I lied about it can somebody please help me.

When I had a yeast infection, I immediately purchased the 1-day insert. I was in so much pain about 15 minutes afterwards and all through the next day. I called an advice nurse and she told me that it is best to use the 7 day treatment because in the 1 day treatment you are getting a huge amount of medicine and sometimes in women it is way too powerful to handle in a one shot treatment. I wish I would have known that sooner.
