Question: Is Activia a good yogurt for yeast infection?
I want to try to plain Activia, it has the cultures that my doc recommended, is it a good regularly yogurt and help prevent yeast and bring back my pH balance? I have a lot of discharge and yeast and the doc states I need to increase my yogurt intake and consume less carbs.

Pls advise, thanks!

Activia hasn’t been proven to help anything, it just tastes good.

Look it up for yourself if you don’t believe me.

    Any yogurt is fine for controlling yeast. There is good bacteria in all yogurts. If it says “contains active cultures”, that’s what you are looking for. It may help stabilize your pH and prevent yeast but the yeast infection still needs to be treated. It would take a long time for yogurt to treat a yeast infection, if at all. I hope you are planning on treating it with an over-the-counter remedy as well.

    It can help if you are trying to prevent them. Make sure that you get a yogurt free of sugar (or at least low). Eating sugar here and there is okay, but if you are prone to yeast infections than you need to cut back on the amount of sweets you eat since yeast thrive on sugar.

    There is also lactobacillus acidophilus pills that you can take which is the same culture in yougurt. You can find them at most any drugstore.

    Also, not sure if your doc mentioned this, but if you take a lot of bubble baths sometimes that can contribute to yeast infections if you are sensitive.
