Default Ladystuff question

I'm curious- does anybody have any good suggestions for dealing with recurring yeast infections? I've never had any yeast infections until earlier this year when I got extremely sick and was on massive doses of antibiotics. Ever since then they keep popping up. I've seen the gyn about it and was given prescription creams and pills and whatnot, but they still pop up and it's it's getting freaking annoying!

I am making sure to keep live culture yogurt in my diet and try to limit my sugar intake.

I do not know if this helps with yeast infections, but one great thing that helps with blatter issues and cleaning the inside parts related to this is cranbarries. If you can't/don't want to dink it they make great pills for this too. I have fond high doses of Cranbarry pills at walgreens that has high doses of vitmin C and E so this is a great way to boost your emmune system while cleaning out the urinary track. I have had multiple urinary, bladder, and kidney infections in my life and I know the cranberry works!!!

The unsweetened cranberry juice? I pour about an inch of that stuff into a glass and have it with Polar seltzer water. otherwise it's worse than biting into a lemon.

Yogurt. Yeast infections are usually caused by a Ph imbalance (antibiotics mess with this badly) and the trick is getting this balance back. You can also get probiotics over the counter these days.

Yes, do lots and lots of yogurt. For some reason, the Ph balance has been exceptionally hard to recapture.

Perhaps a bit unconventional, but I've found that giving up sugar will stop recurrent yeast infections... this was just me though. Oh, and eating tons of plain yogurt. Best of luck ... I'm the survivor of many years of chronic yeast problems, I totally understand!!
