I'm no doctor, but I've done my research on this and I have to say this has absolutely worked for me. I take a probiotic daily. I take Lactobacillus acidopholus. I bought in at a pharmacy over the counter. When I looked up this probiotic, I learned it helps digestion, your immune system and helps you if you've taken antibiotics for instance. I've had a little tiny bit of itching but no yeast infections or dryness like some. And this probiotic helps prevent yeast and urinary tract infections. I really wish my gyno had told me this, but they just hand you a box and say "see ya later" very annoying. So anyhow, pass it around, and I really hope it helps. This is not for some people, especially people with compromised immunes systemns. Check with your doctor, but normally probiotics are exremely helpful and help restore your body's natural bacteria. My major issue is my sinus and post nasal drip. It is the ONLY problem I'm having. It is driving me NUTS. Also, try lube.
