Embarrassing question

Has anyone ever treated a yeast infection with plain probiotic yogurt? What was your experience? I woke up this morning with a yeast infection and applied plain Greek probiotic yogurt externally and internally. My grandma always told my mom and I to try it and it's my first time. I normally use Canesten but wanted to try a more natural remedy this time. I will obviously go and buy more Canesten if I see no improvement from the home remedy. I am also eating probiotic coconut yogurt (I am vegan, so I don't eat dairy) because I read that consuming the probiotics will also help.

It will work if the infection is mild. I've soak a tampon in yogurt before and inserted. After a few days of doing that my symptoms disappeared :) But yes keep eating it along with other probiotic foods!

im not so sure that applying to area will help...the idea of using a probiotic orally is to re-establish a good balance of good bacteria, which has for some reason declined". Have you used antibiotics recently?

This is the first I have heard of anyone soaking a Tampon in Yogurt and inserting it inside.There's a first time for everything.O.K. if it works,I think I would go to a Doctor though,that is what I do with a yeast infection.Everyone does everything different.

Try drinking cranberry juice! It's always worked for me! Lots of antioxidants in it.
I've heard of eating yogurt, but I don't know if putting it inside is the best choice...

Honestly, do a quick google search for natural yeast infection remedies. That might help to find other solutions too.

Do not insert yogurt into your vagina. Do your research, this is an awful idea. Everything I have ever read from a medical professional has said this is ill advised.You should be ingesting the yogurt.

I would just go to a doctor before sticking food up you. Just to be on the safe side.

I think cranberry juice may help :)

Canesten should be able to clear that up quickly. Good luck
