  • try eating yogurt. yeast infections means that there's too much bad bacteria and not enough good. yogurt puts the good bacteria back into your body. are you on antibiotics? those can make you have a yeast infection as well. if you douche, don't, they can cause YI's. go to www.webmd.com and search yeast infections, there's all kinds of articles on there, including tips to prevent them.

  • I was told by my doctor that the Ph in the vagina can change during and after pregnancy causing stuff like yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. The other thing is it may not be a yeast infection if over the counter stuff isn't working you may need anti biotics.

  • Please contact your Dr. right away! I can't stand it for you! How awful. It could be a continuing hormone imbalance among other things. So please call today!

  • dont know if this applies but if you've been having sex, your husband may need to be treated. he can pass it back to you (although he will have no symptoms). you shouldnt have sex while you are treating the infection as well.

  • All of the above are good suggestions. But I'd try the yogurt and the prescription again.
