Question: Yeast infection; what can my boyfriend and me do sexually?
I am on several antibiotics because I have been sick with a virus and I think the medications are giving me a yeast infection. What are some home remedies I can do to help? What can my boyfriend and me do sexually that is innocuous for the both us because I don’t want to pass it to him and I don’t want to make things worse for myself! Thanks!

This will require a change in your diet and life style in order to truly get rid of yeast ( candida) out of your body. Remember that Yeast feeds on sugars and carbs so stay away from the following:

1. Avoid ALL “junk food” (white sugar, white flour, soft (soda) drinks)
Include liberal amounts of nutritious food from a wide variety of sources.

2. Avoid ALL sugars, chocolate, honey, molasses, and maple syrup.

3. Avoid ALL fruits and fruit juices – no dried fruits of any kind.

4.Try not to consume the same foods apiece day, rotate.

5. Feature low carbohydrate vegetables, seafood, lean meats, and eggs. Try to include one serving of high carbohydrate vegetable OR a single portion of a whole grain at apiece meal.

6. Focus on fresh, natural and healthy choices. If it came out of a packet, bottle, bag or box it might not be the wisest choice. When you shop at the supermarket, purchase the foods on the outside perimeter – these will be the fresh foods like meat and veg. Most of the food in the aisles is full of preservatives, sugars and colors. Purchase fruit and vegetables from growers markets or grow my own if possible.

Second get yourself the following:

1. Get organic coconut oil which cost about -7 dollars from a health food store and take 2 tablespoons of it apiece morning. It will help give relief from the inflammation caused by yeast (candida), externally and internally to your body.

2. Get apple cider vinegar RAW. I would advocate the one from a company called Bragg’s which is about dollars. Take 2 tablespoons of it the moment you wake up from bed and before you go to sleep. It helps encourage the growth of healthy bacteria, which in turn minimizes the overgrowth of candida and balances your body’s pH level.

3. Eat lots of leafy Green Veg’s apiece time you are hungry.

4. Get probiotics supplement which cost about 20-30 dollars. Use as directed

What you are doing is starving the candida by not feeding it and this will expunge your candida. Now remember you might crave foods that contain sugars but that’s a good sign since that’s an indication of the candida starving and it needs food so fight the craving.

    Antibiotics almost always cause women to have yeast infections. Whenever you have to take them eat lots of PLAIN yogurt and take a daily probiotic. A doctor once said even better is to put the plain yogurt a fingertip full daily inside the vagina while taking antibiotics. Do not let anything come in contact with the yeast infection.

    About yeast infections: About yeast infections: Your vagina in its normal state has healthy bacteria and bad bacteria. As long it stays balanced like that you have no problems. The balance can become unbalanced causing the bad bacteria to overgrow and multiply causing you to have yeast infection symptoms, itching, lots of discharge that over time increases and becomes clumpy. Things that can cause the bad bacteria to multiply is scented tampons, soapy soaks, soap in the area, tight underwear and pantyhose, very hot baths, high hormone birth control, taking antibiotics, uncontrolled diabetes, douching, low immune system, lack of lubrication (like with sex).

    For the itching buy Vagisil cream. The Vagisil tube will last for several yeast infections.

    To treat the infection. You can buy products like Monistat or Vagistat etc. They sell different types, 1 day, 3 day, 7 day. That does not mean it cures in the number of day you pick, that is just how many days you treat it, it still has to run its course. Yeast infections take a week to cure.

    There are other things you can take to speed along the process. You can drink 100% cranberry juice but it has to be that and no sugar or sweeteners. I dont like to do that so I buy Cranberry tabs at the grocery or pharmacy vitamin isle. One bottle can treat several yeast infections.

    Also buy acidophilus lactobacillus (AL) in the grocery or pharmacy isle. Again one bottle can treat several yeast infections.

    Buy plain yogurt, This is a must to get better. Greek is better. No sugar, no fruit no sweeteners. It tastes like crap but this will really make you better. It has acidophilus in it and kills yeast bacteria. Buy a big tub and eat 3 big spoon fulls 3 times a day.

    Note yeast multiplies like crazy with sugar, so if you have a yeast infection avoid sugar drinks and foods.

    I personally do not like to take Monistat type products. They are expensive. I keep at my home cranberry tabs, acidophilus lactobacillus and Vagisil. That way if I ever get a yeast infection I have all the stuff I need to treat it at home. Then all I have to do is buy plain yogurt. For a yeast infection I take 2 cranberry tabs a day, 2 acidophillus lactobacillus a day, eat the yogurt as I stated above and put Vagisil on the outside for itching

    Also note before bed, soak in a cool bath so the area cools down, apply some Vagisil and you will sleep in peace no itching.

    Whether you treat with Monistat or my way you should see and feel improvement on a daily basis because the bad yeast bacterial should be lessening so your symptoms should be lessening. Your discharge should be less, itching should be less and discharge should be less clumpy on a daily basis. You should keep treating yourself for a week even if you are feeling better to make sure to treat it completely. If not and its getting worse then it may not be a yeast infection. It could be bacterial vaginosis or if sexual active gonorrhea or chlamydia.

    Yogurt is effective against yeast infection as it contains high amount of acidophilus. This is known as good bacteria, which is responsible for destroying bacterial and fungal infections that starts to develop in the body. However, you should know that using yogurt as a yeast infection natural treatment has rules as well. It is necessary to opt for a pure yogurt as cure for the condition. It should not contain sugar and must not be processed.

    Yogurt can be used both internally and externally. Consuming yogurt can help relieve yeast infection symptoms in women and men, and speed up the healing process of the infection.

    You can also apply yogurt directly to the affected area. This may seem a bit messy but you can easily pull through with it, especially if it is against this very discomforting condition. You can use your fingers and apply the yogurt directly to the area affected by the infection or you can use it by dipping a tampon into it and inserting in into the vagina. Since yogurt is all natural, you can use it against the condition on a daily basis. It does not come with any side effects and is proven very effective against yeast infection. However, if the condition is severe, you might need to consume medications to relieve its symptoms.

    Yeast infections are due to the excessive amount of yeast in the body and experts believe that it cannot be transmitted from one person to another. Oral thrush or oral candidiasis, on the other hand, can be transmitted through sexual intercourse. That means healthy men who had sexual intercourse with infected women can acquire the infection.

    Yeast infection triggers pain during sex in about a quarter of sufferers. It is highly advised that you don’t have sex while you have a yeast infection. Guys can carry the yeast for 3 days, and they can re-infect you. It is better to wait until it is cured completely.
