  • you can treat the infection during period,just make sure to buy the week long or 3 day treatment as the one day treatments are not as strong and your natural blood flo could wash away the meds.I would use pads for now because I know I get uncomfortable when I have a yeast infection and it helps for the area to breathe.Also eat yogart,the natural cultures battle yeast.Feel better soon.

  • There is a pill that your doctor can give you. You only have to take it once. It's great!!!!! I forgot the name I'm sure someone knows the name. It's starts with a D I think.

  • the tampons is what probably gave you the yeast infection!

  • Try to get antibiotics from your Doctor. I rarely get one, but when I do it tends to go away with your period.
