It will help: The yeast that causes these problems thrives in any environment where there is extra sugar around to feed their growth. To the extent you are out of control, all your body fluids, including vaginal fluid, will have extra glucose available for the germs.Get yourself into control & there is much less food for the germ to eat & it is harder for them to come back. ...Read more

Why do I keep getting yeast infections I have had an ongoing yeast infection for 6 months. What is wrong with my body. I have tried over-the-counter treatments, and a yeast infection treatment from planned parenthood. But it wont go away. Please help me.

Six months is too long to be affected by this and could be leading to bigger problems. Over the counter medications are not always effective in treating candida infections. You may require a combination of topical and parental (oral) medications to eliminate the infection. ...Read more

How do you get rid of frequent recurrent yeast infections that don't go away with ordinary treatment. I have tried diflucan, monistat, boric acid suppositories, and swallowing acidopholus tablets. It keeps coming back. I had a hysterectomy and started tak

I : I am so sorry that you are going through that. It sounds like you are doing everything right. Ask your doctor if they think that vaginal atrophy (common after hysterectomy) are contributing to your symptoms. They have probably told you to reduce sugary foods and drinks, reduce alcohol (because of sugar content), only wear cotton underwear or ideally no underwear, avoid baths or bubble baths, and to use a blow dryer (from a safe distance) after your shower. You can also ask your pharmacist for products such as vagisil (there are also other products that are similar) that can help keep the skin clean and itch-free. ...Read more
