If you are 100% sure that it's a yeast infection then I have a home remedy that has never failed me or anyone I've suggested it to that has tried it. It's kind of off the wall, but I promise that it works and works quickly. First, everyday when you wake up swallow a whole clove of garlic. If you don't want to deal with the after taste then drink it with orange juice and you'll barely notice the taste. Next, insert one...you know where. If you think you may have a problem removing it then you can just double up on the oral garlic and swallow two cloves over the course of the day. However, it's not as effective (in my experience) as putting it "in there". I was told this by a friend who is from Brazil and swears by garlic's antibacterial properties, because of this I also swallow a clove of garlic each day when I'm sick and I tend to only have the sniffles for one day, two at the most.
