Question: How To Cure Yeast Infection In Women?
I’ve got this humiliating yeast infection for quite some time now that has defied all my attempts at getting rid of it.

I’ve done quite a lot of research on how to cure yeast infection in women with tiny or no hope.

Has anyone got a way out for me? It’d be really appreciated

You can go to planned parenthood or a free clinic and they will give you anti-bacterial pill Diflucan. There is also you can consume yogurt with probiotics in it, or Monistat make sure you get the 7-14 day treatment. Wear white cotton underwear and no tight material, get some sani-wipes and each time you go to the bathroom use those. Drink lots of water and cranberry juice. No sex and make sure your significant other does not have a yeast infection, all though unlikely it has happened. Good luck!

    If you can’t go see a doctor, go to the drugstore. Medicine is available for around $10 without a prescription. Just ask the pharmacist. If you’ve already tried that, you’re going to have to see a doctor. The infection won’t go away on its own; it will just get worse.

  2. Karen says:

    Two other thoughts – research has shown that a portion of infections that women think are yeast infections are actually bacterial infections or mixed yeast and bacterial infections. If it is bacterial, then you need an antibiotic from a doctor. The second thought is that if it is a yeast infection, there is a chance you could be passing it back and forth between you and your partner, your partner would need to be treated with an oral antifungal drug at the same time as you are.

    In my opinion the best treatment for yeast infection is something that is natural. The OTC stuff doesn’t work permanently and usually burns!

    Here’s a link to an article that describes some pain free options. ;-)

    Hi Beauty,

    You are not alone in this as this is a problem being faced by a lot of ladies.

    I urge you to try yogurt as the bacteria in it fights yeast infection. But since sugar aids yeast, you are advised to use the plain, unsweetened type.

    Garlic is another big enemy of yeast and it has been found to be one of the most effective ways to cure yeast infection in women. It can either be used internally or externally.

    Try miconazole – it’s available over the counter at any drugstore under the name Monistat. It usually gets rid of yeast infections within a week. If it is a yeast infection, this should do the trick. If it’s resistant to Monistat or if you’re allergic to it, get the doctor to prescribe fluconazole. You should see the doctor anyway, just to be sure it is a yeast infection.

    Also, is your boyfriend/husband circumcised? I know – weird question, but bear with me. In the US, the problems with circumcision are not well known, even in the medical community. Persistent and recurring vaginal yeast infections can be caused by a male sexual partner’s circumcision.

    Doctors know that yeast infections can be passed back and forth between partners and can resist treatment that way. What doctors don’t tend to know is that male circumcision can mask male yeast infection, making it asymptomatic in the man. So the woman can think she’s the only one infected, whereas in reality her circumcised partner is the carrier. So no amount of treatment will get rid of the problem, as the next time she has sex, she’ll get re-infected.

    In a study published in the British Journal of Venereal Diseases in 1977, 66 circumcised men and 69 intact men were tested. Although yeasts were isolated at similar rates in both groups, the circumcised men had significantly fewer symptoms. This means that yeast infection can hide much more effectively in circumcised men.

    This study is not commonly known in the US, and since it’s a study of men’s health, often doctors are unaware of its significance for women. The fact that yeast infection is effectively invisible in circumcised men has led many doctors in the US to believe (wrongly) that circumcision protects men from yeast infections, and that female partners of circumcised men are relatively safe from re-infection.
