I have had many yeast infections over the years, along with my share of bacterial vaginosis. The last time, I suffered for 9 months. After going through 2 courses of antibiotics from my dr. to no avail, I scoured the internet, and tried things such as: tampons soaked with coconut oil, eucalyptus, and lavender; boric acid douches and straight boric acid powder; Hibiclens wash. Although each remedy knocked the symptoms, nothing really cleared it up....UNTIL...I talked with my chiropractor, who said "Maybe you have a yeast infection," to which I replied, "No, Doc, I know what those are like, this is definitely BV, but I've tried everything else, so why not try that too." So I used one of those 1-dose oval capsules (which actually works for about a week). And, voila! No more BV/Yeast/Whatever-it-was!!! That was over one year ago. Since then, I have refortified myself with probiotics (Kombucha tea, raw sauerkraut, yogurt, and supplements -- and I don't eat many grains).My health returned very quickly.
