Can I put yogurt inside my vagina to cure my yeast infection? If so, what type of yogurt?

Please don't do that: Inserting yogurt or any other food into the vagina is not an effective treatment for a vaginal infection such as yeast or bacterial vaginosis. Over the counter yeast creams are available to treat this very common problem. It will be more effective to use one such as Monistat or Clotrimazole.

Cyst: Swelling at the opening of the vagina can be a Bartholin's gland cyst. When the duct becomes blocked, fluid accumulates. They can frequently become infected and cause an abscess with tenderness. Treatment usually involves opening the cyst to allow drainage and can be performed in the office with local anesthetic.

Can a yeast infection cause air in the vagina? I think I might have one but I also have a lot of air. Can air make the vagina feel looser?

Hello. I have had swelling on one side of my vagina for three days now. I'm not too positive if its just from a yeast infection or if its more severe.

Hello. I have had swelling on one side of my vagina for three days now. I'm not too positive if its just from a yeast infection or if its more severe.

Genital swelling: Yeast infection wouldn't usually cause one sided genital symptoms. If the swelling is painful, and especially if there are open sores, herpes is likely. See a doctor ASAP -- the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis. Also, if it's herpes, treatment effectiveness depends on starting treatment right away. Good luck! ...Read more

If I put some yogart on my finfer and insert it in my vagina would that help a yeast infection?

Probably: There is some good evidence that lactobacillus acidophilus, which is the bacteria that is used to ferment yogurt, is effective for vaginal yeast infections. Make sure that your yogurt contains l. Acidophilus, and that it does not contain added sugars, which feed the yeast. If your symptoms don't go away, or if you are not sure whether you have a yeast infection, see a doctor to get it checked out! ...Read more

Why would the opening of my vagina be white? Would it be a yeast infection or what? I've only had oral sex, not vaginal.

Possibly: If you douche frequently, on recent antibiotics you could develop a yeast infection. At 16 you are really at the age where you should start to see a gynecologist.

Its been a month since I got treated for my yeast infection, why do I now have dry vagina. During intintercourse or when im horny, can't get wet?

Dry vagina: It takes time to heal the vagina after the infection. Try a half teaspoon of "live" yogurt e.g. Activia introduced into vagina each day. This will help the vagina rebuild its natural bacteria content. Do not douche as this makes matters worse. Also take the yougurt orally as this also helps. Avoid intercourse for awhile until your tissues are healed. ...Read more
