God bless the Earth Clinic! I was a bit desperate today, leaving for work and realizing I had my yearly yeast infection - burn, burn. As soon as I got to my computer, I researched the remedies here, and once I found the plain yogurt therapy, zoom! I dashed out to buy a small carton of plain yogurt (organic). I applied a teaspoonful up the canal with a finger, and ah! Relief! What a brilliant cure. I will continue this for a few days. Last year, I tried using ACV, and that also worked, but the yogurt is so soothing. I just love this web resource: thank you for being there!
A couple of weeks ago I went to the ER for what turned out to be a gum infection from a tooth. I was given amoxicillin 875mg. The attending physician told me I would probably get a yeast infection from it and said if I did to just eat some yogurt. I said to myself "yeah, yeah." I got the yeast infection and did everything for it, for 2 weeks, but not the yogurt. Last night I went to the grocery and happened to see some Greek yogurt and bought some. My yeast infection was full blown, so I thought "what the heck" and ate one of the yogurts. THIS MORNING I HAVE NO MORE YEAST INFECTION.
Once I started taking the birth control pill, I started getting fairly regular yeast infections. The over the counter remedies are messy and expensive and I was tired of it. I found many sites (including this one) that recommended using yogurt to cure the infection. I bought a 6oz cup of plain, unflavored, nonfat yogurt with live cultures. As soon as I got home a applied a little to the outside of my vagina and my vulva and the itch stopped immediately. I then made a frozen insert to use that night by using a plastic tampon applicator, filling it with yogurt, and freezing it. I inserted it right before bed and put on a pad to catch the melting mess. There really wasn't much at all - nowhere near as messy as the over the counter chemical/medicinal stuff. I felt totally cured the next morning, but continued use for another day just to be sure. Cheap, easy, and it WORKS!
Using yogurt has treated my yeast infection. The trick is once you've inserted about a tablespoon with an applicator put your legs up over your head to ensure the yogurt gets all the way up there! I feel like my self again. Thanks everyone!

This is my first yeast infection in 20 years! I had to take a high dosage antibiotic and four days later, wham! Yeast infection! I did not want to take another synthetic drug and upset my system even more. I too looked up natural cures and stumbled upon this site. I had heard about yogurt from a girlfriend and she said it was amazing. I bought plain organic yougurt and inserted it with a tampon for an hour. The itching went away instantly! It felt cool and soothing. I did apply some yogurt to the outside of my vulva to help soothe. This is only my first day,but will try it again tonight before I go to bed. My v-jay is irritated, but not how it was earlier. I can at least sit down without cringing. I expect that to subside after another application. Thank you!
Now, Ive been suffering from this for a while now. At first i was not quite sure what i had. Someone told me it must be a yeast infection. so i went to the store and bought creams to treat it. No good. Then also i read here that someone used plain yogurt to treat it. so i tried it and for the first time in many years no odor no more anything. For one day i felt awesome in that area. now this was not for long. it came back! i was shocked and a little upset. it's not as strong as before but its still there and its quite embarrassing with my boyfriend and all. anyone care to help?

Im 27 and this the first time I ever got a yeast infection. Im very against using medications not even for head aches. I googled this site for a quick natural remedy for the infection. What I did was put the plain yogurt in a plastic glove (the fingers) and put it in the freezer so it can freeze. Once it was completely frozen, I took one of the fingers of frozen yogurt out and inserted it into my v-jay at bed time, and this canceled any mess. It worked like a charm! No more yeast infection or symptoms.....
Yogurt cured my vaginal yeast infection
i used to get yeast infections once a month. after bieng to the doctor and getting that one day pill 3 times i was fed up and came to this AMAZING web site. i read all the testimonals about plain yogurt and had to try it. so i had my mom go out and buy some. i layed down on my bathroom floor and spooned some on. i was amazed the itching instantly went away, i did this over 3 days along with wearing only cotton panites, ivory soap and not wearing tight pants and my yeast infection went away in a matter of a week. i love this cure because its natural and im no longer putting chemicals into my body
thanks earth clinic!
Since I was a young teen, I have had the embarrassing white crud yeast infection over and over, starting before I ever had any sex. Doctors prescribed some of the worst colored creams you could imagine to be put into my vagina at night, and having to wear underwear and they always created a big mess in the underwear the next morning. Originally I had to use this for 7 nights. Luckily this changed to being able to buy my own tube from the store and using over 5 days, then 3. Still the mess.
10 years ago, again I discovered another bout. Someone suggested plain store- bought yogurt and since I despise medicines I tried it.
I placed one large tablespoon of the plain yogurt into my vagina right before bed, then put on my underwear to catch the ugly mess the next morning. Instead there was no mess and the PH had changed the white dicharge and yogurt had changed to clear liquid and no, I mean NO mess. It was as if I was normal and it had never happened. I could not believe it that doctors had made me use disgusting stuff when something so simple and pure as yogurt was available.
Tell everyone, please.
Plain yogurt dipped on a tampon and inserted for a few hours works like a charm at curing impending yeast infections. Additionally, the yogurt is very soothing, not harsh in any way. Also, a tip about avoiding yeast infections: don't have sex using a flavored condom!
I have suffered from yeast infections since I was a teen. The otc creams are almost as bad as the yeast infection. I have found the less sugar I eat, the less infections I get. But the biggest help has been yogurt. Unflavored yogurt sucked up into one of those applicators used for the yeast infection medications really knocks out the pain and irritation within seconds and cures it in a matter of days. It is so much cheaper, kinder and faster then the creams.
I just found this site, looking for help with my chronic sinus/dental problems and got side-tracked. I wanted to add my input on using yogurt for vaginal yeast infections. I rarely get yeast infections, but any time I ever did, I dipped a tampon in some plain yogurt and left it in overnight, and it always cured the problem immediately! In addition, a few years back, I was baking some bread and must have scratched my leg with a fingernail that had some yeast underneath, and within an hour I had what is known as "baker's infection"...something people who work in bakerys suffer from on a regular basis because of the live yeast surrounding them. My rash on my legs was spreading by the minute, so I finally ran a hot bath, dumped a carton of plain yogurt in, and it brought it to a screeching halt! The redness remained into the next day, but the spreading had stopped, along with the itching and burning! I had read that yogurt bacterias kill yeast on contact, and I know, from experience, that this is absolutely true!
re: Yeast and Bacterial Vaginitis. Hello, I don't know if this will work for bacterial infections, but when I have had yeast infections, I apply a couple of Tablespoons of plain, unsweetened, unflavored yoghurt to my inner and outer parts with a clean finger, and instant relief. Poof! No more yeast infection ! Its worth a try, it can't hurt, and its very cheap.
Wow, i was really surprised when I used yogurt, it actually worked, and although it was messy all of my symptoms cleared up...there was no more scratching or discomfort, after about 4 days it was completely gone, i was very impressed, if I get this again I will know exactly how to cure it. Thank you everyone on this website, if it wasn't for you, I would've never been able to cure this in any quicker way.
After years of unsuccessfully trying to treat yeast infections I came across this website. Having tried every treatment available from the doctors and specialists I have seen I tried yoghurt and I am astounded to say that it really worked!! I have now had two blissful days with no pain! Thank you to all involved with this site. You have no idea the difference you have made to my life.
