  • it's cream you stick the prefilled tube up your vajayjay before you go to bed and it works great, it is safe I had many yeast infections with my last son and that's what I used and my Dr. told me it was safe.

  • IF you have been to your doctor and had a culture that came back positive for yeast than yes. But if you haven't than for now just start chugging cranberry juice (100%) and in the morning go in to either your doc or an urgent care facility to have them test you. UTI's have the same symptoms and you could have both at once. Yes I know not cool.

  • also, try eating a crap-load of yogurt. or you can buy acidopholus(sp?) capsules or in a liquid and take that. and definitely down crazy amounts of cranberry juice!! feel better!
