  • My sister swears by a peeled garlic clove in cheesecloth and plain unsweetened yogurt (the real kind, like stoneyfield).
    I prefer Monistat and eating yogurt.

  • Yogurt! The active cultures in yogurt naturally control the growth of yeast. It might take a day or two longer than anti-fungal creams or pills, but there's no mess, and no nasty side effects on your digestive tract. Also, avoid tight-fitting pants, wear cotton underwear (they let you 'breathe' better), and sleep in just a t-shirt, no undies. It will be gone in no time!

  • My gyno has recommended getting plain dannon and rubbing it on your vulva in addition to eating it.
