Yeast infections can easily happen at any time. Some woman are more susceptible than others. It is more likely that syptoms of a yeast infection occur one week before starting your period and may clear up on their own afterwards. Yeast infections can cause terrible discomort, however, if your symptoms continue or get worse, it is important to speak with a healthcare provider right away.
Woman who suffer from chronic yeast infections can try these natural remedies. Depending on the severity of the infection, these remedies may offer some relief.
Directions: Take a shower, be sure to only wash the outer-portion of your vagina and avoid soap getting near the inner labia and opening of your vagina. With clean hands, try these natural remedies for yeast infections:
1. Take a clove of garlic and wrap it in cheesecloth or a gauze, insert the garlic into the vagina at bedtime and in the morning, remove the garlic.
2. Using clean utensils, take two spoons of yogurt with active cultures and close the spoons so that the yogurt is held in between. Insert the spoons into the vagina and open the spoons, releasing the yogurt. The active bacteria in yogurt also comes in capsule form and can be taken by mouth.
3. White Distilled Vinegar douche twice a day, for three days.
4. Herbal remedies include: making a tea with 1 teaspoon of dried thyme for every 1 cup of boiling water, steep for 30 minutes and drink 1-4 times a day. For itching and irritation, make a tea of rosemary using the same method as the thyme and use it as a douche or dab it onto the external vagina. Rosemary has very strong anti-inflammatory properties.
These are just a few home remedies for yeast infections. It is important for women to understand that vaginas are self-sufficient. They are self-cleaning and maintain a natural balance of both good and bad bacteria, including yeast. Upsetting this balance can cause problems. Taking anti-fungal medications when you do not have a yeast infection can cause you to develop one. A major side-effect of antibiotics can cause yeast infections. Douching, use of feminine deodorant sprays, powders, creams, exposure to foreign substances and bacteria can all cause an imbalance in the vagina that can lead to yeast infections or other types of infections. It is important to maintain good hygeine and keep the vagina free from irritants. Yeast loves moisture, so when inside the home, if possible, stay bottomless or wear only cotton underwear. Sleeping in the nude can also keep the vagina away from any heat or moisture that may develop while sleeping. Changing out of clothes right after exercise or a wet bathing suit can also decrease the chances of developing a yeast infection.
