UH OH ITCHY!!!

sooooo basically i think i have a yeast infection. it's itchy, i saw some nonsmelly discharge on the inside which may have resembled fine fine cottage cheese. sooo i douched with a vinegar solution immediately, then did a garlic suppository topped in yougurt. i also went out and bout probiotc stuff to drink... i've never had one before but i think i'm right about this... doing the right thing???

So far, aside from the douching, you've done everything well, from an organic standpoint. However, the garlic/yogurt thing may or may not work. Did the yogurt have live cultures? I would give it another day or so, and if you're still feeling itchy/uncomfortable, I'd try an over-the-counter. The 7 day ones are best, but the 3 days ones have worked well for me. There are a few that also come with anti-itch cremes, which is very nice after days of scratching like mad.

If after treatment, it still lingers, I would see a dr. I had something similar happen last year, and it went on for almost a month!

Good luck!!

If you are itching for more than an hour, then yeah, you likely have a yeast infection--though if you have never had one before, it is good to see a doctor or nurse about it. I have fought off yeast infections without using over the counters, but if you don't kick it yourself pretty fast, you really don't want your vag to be in bad health. Get it taken care of right.

Also, I am the mod of this comm, and I would appreciate it if you changed the settings of your post, right now you are screening all comments.
