Wonder if I can get any Medicine to cure this without having prescription? And Will I Go Through Any Other infection After Curing the yeast ... just like what i experienced after curing BV?
Thankfully yes, u can buy Monistat at your favorite pharmacy for relatively low money expenditures. There are several 'types', mostly differing in amount and # of days treatment. It's all kinda messy... such is our lot in life. Just pick out your favorite and have fun. Monilia is not as bad as Bv. Why do we get all of the "private stuff"?
you can go to your doctor or health clinic and they have a pill that cures the yeast infection in one day. Many antibiotics can give a woman a yeast infection but if you use over the counter vaginal creams and are on birth control it can decrease it's effectiveness so be careful if doing that method and plan on having intercourse.
The metronidazole is a powerful antibiotic that kills off not only the pathogenic bacteria but the good bacteria as well and then the yeast are able to over multiply, and cause a yeast infection. Fluconazole is an oral rx med that can treat the yeast internally and miconazole is an over the counter cream that will treat it intravaginally. If you ever have to take the metro in the future, be sure to ask for fluconazole aka diflucan to treat the subsequent yeast infection that may occur.
I suffered from bv for a long time. NOTHING helped. pills, creams, you name it. Im very clean and it was horrible to smell awful after you get out of the shower.. i didn't want sex and refused to tell my boyfriend what was wrong i was so embarrassed. i have NO std's and am with one man only. it came out of nowhere. one day while shaving down there i had cut myself and so i applied mupirocin ointment that i had on hand (its prescription only) from an old skin infection i had before. I applied it on both outer sides of my vagina very thin and went about my day. the next day, boom, my bv was GONE!! and stayed gone. no more horrible smell and nasty discharge. Im sure you shouldn't put it inside of you, like i said only on the outside. i dont know how it worked or why, really dont care. all i know is i have a sex life now and am "normal" again! every quack medical professional says this ointment will not work for that.
Just goes to show you all those fancy book learning dont know it all.. Once a week i apply it outside of my vagina VERY thinly so to keep it away. i wanted to share this with every woman suffering from this for it will ruin your social life
Eat at least one yogurt for every day that you take any antibiotics for anything. It's supposed to DECREASE THE CHANCE of getting an yeast infection by balancing out the bacteria. It doesn't matter which kind, I just personally don't think that the kids yogurt is good enough. I was told that the bacteria in yogurt is really good for the vagina. Just a thought, maybe it will work. Hope you feel better! I was just diagnosed with BV myself, so hopefully we both can get rid of completely.
About the yogurt deal... you're only 50% correct. Eating yogurt will not cure any vaginal yeast infection. But take a couple Tbs. of plain yogurt, dissolve it in 2 cups of warm water then douche with it, you'll be free of that uncomfortable yeast infection quick as a wink!! Yogurt contains the same healthy bacteria that keep us gals yeast free. I used to get yeast infections constantly. My doctor would automatically write a script for Diflucan every time I needed an antibiotic and finally, my mom, who was an RN for years, told me to stop going to the doctor and to try douching with the yogurt/warm water mixture. I thought she was crazy!! But she was also very smart. So I tried it. It worked!! That was 30 years ago and never had another yeast infection since!!!
Have you ever tried Anlina insert? My family member took all of the above-mentioned pills, but to no avail. After 2 months of Anlina insert for 2 months, the bacterial vaginosis had gone.
