Yougurt for a yeast infection?! adult content

My best friend was telling me the other day that she got a lot of yeast infections during pregnancy and used plain yogurt. The thought of that made me laugh and cringe at the same time. Have you ever heard of this?

  • I've only had a yeast infection once in my life, and it was when I was about 25 weeks pregnant. I tried the yogurt trick one evening and by the next morning, all of my symptoms were completely gone. Maybe I just got lucky...or hell, maybe it wasn't even a yeast infection, lol...but it took away my symptoms!

  • And yes, doing it was disgusting! I waited until my husband was gone, laid out a towel, and got to it, lol! Ok, sorry, that was way TMI. :)

  • Wow sorry I read about laying on a towel? You're suppose to eat the yogurt to get it into your system. Hey if it worked that's good too. Lol.

  • Yes. It is a fact but you have to eat the yogurt that on the side of the package says live and active cultures.
