I had a yeast infections about 3 weeks ago. I treated otc, and it was gone promptly. Now, I seem to have another one!! I do get them more than the average person.
Does anyone know reasons I may have them often??
What about those probiotic pills and such? Has anyone had any luck taking those? Do they help?
Hi there! Wanted to let you know I know your pain. I have tried pro-biotics and they do help. I actually have been taking something called AZO yeast that actually helps treat and prevent the infections. Also, have you seen a gyno? They may want to test you to see if you have a strain resistant infection. What kind of soap do you use down there? Do you douche? Do you use any perfumed panty-liners or clothing detergents? Also, a lot of sugar in your diet can feed yeast. Do you take birth control or do you use anti-biotics? Also yogurt is your friend
I think mine is cyclical. I didn't even know until recently that it was yeast infections because I don't always get the pain/burning and itching. I've been having them since I was a teenager. It only became a huge problem when I had an IUD put in. I was just at the doctor Tuesday and she told me to use probiotics and that would help. Here goes. Hope it does.
Oh...you may know this already, but yeast infections will become resistant to drugs after awhile. so hopefully you can find a solution to all this. I'm hoping the probiotics work for me.
