No effect!: Apple cider vinegar WILL NOT affect your yeast and may even be harmful for your vagina.

Does the vinegar test work all the time on GW? I wanna try it on myself but I just had a yeast infection and my insides are swollen....

Does the vinegar test work all the time on GW? I wanna try it on myself but I just had a yeast infection and my insides are swollen....

Very unreliable: Painting skin with vinegar (or other acid) is a terrible test for genital warts and HPV infection. Some HPV infected tissues don't turn white, and some white spots are not HPV. Even in the hands of an experienced dermatologist or STD expert, the test is hard to interpret and unreliable. It is even worse by untrained anxious persons testing themselves. Don't do it; see a doctor instead. ...Read more

BV: Most likely you have an abnormal growth of vaginal bacteria (bacterial vaginosis or BV). This can lead to the odor, itching, and discomfort. You were correct to try an anti-fungal cream but since you have persistent symptoms or possibly a different (or additional) diagnosis, now is a good time to schedule a visit with your Doc. A quick exam, a look under the microscope, easy treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

It itches before I start my period. A couple of months ago I had a yeast infection I don't think its that because when I took a bath vinegar it stop?

It itches before I start my period. A couple of months ago I had a yeast infection I don't think its that because when I took a bath vinegar it stop?

Maybe not yeast...: Vinegar doesn't work against yeast infections (or anything else); if the itching improved with a vinegar "bath" it was probably just a coincidence. You may or may not have a yeast infection; other things also can cause genital itching. See a doctor for professional diagnosis and recommended treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

I've heard that using an Apple cider vinegar soak is good to help cure yeast infection. Soaking a cloth and laying over vaginal walls, is this true?

Don't do it: This won't do any good at all and could be irritating and make yeast symptoms worse. Vaginal yeast infections need medical treatment. There are excellent over-the-counter drugs, including single dose oral fluconazole (Diflucan), or any of several vaginal creams -- look for active ingredient ending in "azole". If any doubt about the diagnosis, or if OTC treatment doesn't work, see a doctor. ...Read more
