    There is a lot of information out there that garlic is a good natural remedy for a yeast infection

    Some people have tried this and it seems to have worked, and other people ended up with serious burns to their vagina.
    Put a garlic clove in your mouth and see if you don’t notice the burning sensation!
    Think what this might do to your vagina!
    Garlic cloves are very strong.

    If you want to try this, do so at your own risk and I wish you good luck.!

    …. no.

    just… no. never heard of that and most likely will do nothing at all.

    though as I understand it, having external “sugars” introduced into the vaginal chemistry can cause or promote yeast infections. and most things like that have some such sugars.

    I wouldn’t advise it, it could be quite painful.

    Natural unpasteurised ‘live’ yogurt works for some people. You should go to the doctor first and get it diagnosed as a yeast infection.
