@cdncinnamongirl:  Hmm… interesting? I wonder if because I incorrectly spelled it, you may be thinking of something different. Activia yogurt… I’m having the fat free Light Strawberry right now for breakfast: 

Calories: 60

Calories from fat: 0

Total fat: 0

Saturated Fat: 0

Cholesterol: <5mg (1% DV)

Please advise if I’m missing something??

@MrsPanda99:  I was so miserable! I actually cried a few times lol The cream is expensive but it was cheaper then paying $40 to see the doctor and then another $20 for the dumb pill!!!!!! Try getting the store brand stuff

@MrsPanda99:  One time I tried the three day monistat and it was the most awful pain of my entire life. I literally ran into the bathroom and spent the next hour under the showerhead trying to free myself of the searing burning sensation. Went for the Diflucan the next day. 

So basically, be careful with that stuff, it can be super duper scary.

They can be caused by antibiotics. Are you in a cycle of uti –> antibiotics –> thrush –> repeat? If so, pee after sex, will stop uti’s. Then lack of antibiotics will stop yeast infection. Oh plus your partner using the cream on himself externally for a few days and you refraining from having sex during this period is a must.

ugh i too had this issue a few years ago. i still get them more than the average person, but theyve subsided. i actually had one that lasted for 4 months. incredible burning and other grossness.dr actually prescribed me something which wasnt for yeast that got rid of it finally. very strange bc all my tests were negative over and over again. made it more of a crazy mystery.

@MrsPanda99:  I’m allergic to latex too! They do make latex free condoms. I understand the not wanting to use condoms when you’re married. However, I’d be willing to bet he’d get over that if it meant no more yeast and sex more often! Good luck sweetie!

@MrsPanda99:  I had this problem last year. 1. Stop using soap. Get a detachable showerhead that had a few setting and just blast around in there. No soap on anything but the outside areas. 

2. Have your blood sugar checked. Chronic yeast infections can be a symptom of your body not processing sugars correctly.
