Garlic to cure yeast infection....

So I have a yeast infection. Last week my husband and I have sex and the next day my bits where itchy and irritated. This has happened before, so I thought it was just because of the rough sex.
Well I figured out last night it was a yeast infection. I get online and find garlic works. So I wrapped a clove in gauze and put it in my yahoo. OMG! It is very soothing. I also chopped up a clove and swallowed it.
Anyone else use garlic for a yeast infection??

  • I tried it once and it didn't work for me. MY dH told me never to do it again. I think it was too far gone to work. You have to do it when you first figure out that you've got it.

  • i'm pretty sure that's what I had a few months back-and had seen that you can put yogurt on it (it worked)...didn't try garlic
