Hi Everyone,

I have had an ongoing yeast infection since 2 1/2 weeks post op, I'm now 6 weeks post op. I've tried diflucan three times now and cream for the outer area to no avail! Does anyone have a tried and proven home remedy they could recomend for yeast that works? I'm still trying to avoid creams since you have to insert them into the vagina, Dr. told me nothing in the vagina until at least the 7th week.
Does anyone know if the drainage from sutures would still be draining at 6-7 weeks? I'm wondering if it's causing irritation in my already sensitive vaginal tissue causing yeast to overgrow.

I had a severe yeast infection after 2 weeks and the doctor told me to use Gynazole (by prescription) This is a cream and I was instructed to put just the tip of the applicator in the vagina to dispense a small amount (nothing way up inside) and the rest used to smooth all around. I was very swollen and the itching was driving me crazy. This medicine worked by the next day and the dr told me that it kills all 3 of the nasty yeast type infections. I also started eating yogurt too, it helps you get back the good bacteria you need. Needless to say, the medicine did the trick.

Good luck!

Yogurt works well...

I'm talking about plain yogurt, no flavoring. And, I also mean you can just apply it "down there" as well as eating it. If you buy the yogurt to eat, it's best for it to be the sugar free kind (you know the stuff with icky aspartame in it).

But, what works best for me if I get the itchies is just to cut back on sugars...bread, pasta, sweets, etc.

Good luck!

Home remedies for yeast

In my frustration I was searching on the internet for home remedies for yeast infection. I found some interesting stuff at this website. However most of it is inserted vaginally therefore we can't use it until the Dr. clears us. But for future reference to all you who suffer as I do from the yeast beast here it is... and lets pray that it works!
