Should I insert yogurt into my vagina to cure a yeast infection?

Question: Should I insert yogurt into my vagina to cure a yeast infection?
I am exhausted of OTC products, and at this point I am willing to try anything. I am having a recurring problem with yeast infections. They go away and come back. I dont even want to have intercourse. No more difuclan, no more creams, nothing works or helps me. I am currently intake 1-2 cups of yogurt a day right now, and that only helps with the anguish of my vagina. It doesnt take the infection away. I am thinking about inserting the yogurt. I am fighting a losing fight with this thing. I so exhausted of it. I feel like it has taken over my life. Yes, there are more things much more serious but it is very uncomfortable and annoying. Any help. I appreciate all answers but, are there any women out there who has had battles with this? Thanks
I have been to the gyn…I’m clear of everything. All STD’S everything.

    eating too much bread can bring on yeast infections too

    One home remedy for yeast infection is to soak a tampon in yogurt and then put it in, so it might help.

    If diflucan isnt working then maybe its not a yeast infection after all? Have you been to the gyno?

    Sounds like you should speak to your doctor. Recurring infections could be the sign of other problems.
    But to answer your question,, eh no, I would think that would only make the problem worse

    i think that is just a gross thing to do. if ur using the 1,3, or even 7 day monistat, and still getting it right back, i would have my b/f treat also. the 2 of u could be just passing it back and forth, even if he has no symptoms. another thought is, have u gotten a pap recently? maybe its not just a recurring yeast infection. goodluck.

  6. doodlebuttus says:

    First off… are you positive you are having yeast infections? Many other problems have similar symptoms. Do you have a doctor involved? If not, you need to. There may be an underlying medical condition. I have heard some people say the yogurt-soaked tampons work, but it is very messy. If you are that frustrated, you might as well try.

    There are several other things you can do to help prevent getting yeast infections to begin with. These include: wearing cotton underwear and loose clothes, don’t douche, avoid sugary and highly processed foods, and drink a lot of water.

    well i dont think you should be inserting any type of food into your vagina…
    dont you think it would be alot easier to maybe see a doctor.

    You might want to check with a health care professional, because PID (pelvic Inflammatory disease) has the same symptoms of a yeast infection, and can cause infertility if left untreated or improperly treated. Did you have a doctor tell you it was a yeast infection? Also, a deficiency in B vitamins can lead to reoccurring yeast infections. Have you been tested for STDs? But no, you should not insert yogurt into your vagina. I would seriously suggest you go see a doctor.

    Hi there,

    Glad to hear you went back to your gyn to make sure you are clear of everything. I wanted to let you know about another possibility (besides inserting yogurt) for treating your yeast infection which may be just what you need!

    I’m actually an intern at Nature’s Cure for the summer, so I’ve learned a lot about yeast infections and the various treatments out there.

    You may know this already, but yeast infections occur when there is an overgrowth of yeast in your body. Overgrowth can be caused by hormonal shifts (even from birth control pills), a weak immune system (caused by stress, poor nutrition or illness), using antibiotics, tight/poorly ventilated clothing or even tampons.

    Since you have little control over some of these triggers, it may take more than an external treatment to keep yeast infections at bay. I know you said you are tired of OTC treatments, but have you ever tried taking oral capsules? If you feel you’re prone to yeast infections, Nature’s Cure makes Yeast Control Capsules (which are taken daily) to help your body maintain an internal environment that promotes yeast balance on an ongoing basis.

    If you have a yeast infection and need immediate relief from the symptoms, Nature’s Cure also makes Yeast Infection Convenience Packs. They come with both all-natural tablets to really get to the source of the infection and also the traditional antifungal treatment for quick relief of the symptoms.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes, it does work. Just make sure it is plain white sugar free yogurt. If it has sugar or flavoring in it it can irritate things more. so, be sure that it is plain. You don’t need to use a tampon either. Just use your fingers or a spoon.
