I think I might try something like this. Three days later and I'm still feeling irritated :

I've used the garlic several times and had no problems. If it's a real humdinger of an infection, I use the jarred chopped garlic wrapped in cheesecloth. One night of that and anything that even THOUGHT of growing in my yoni is gone! Yes, it burns, but it goes away after about five minutes. The cheesecloth is easy to grab and pull back out, but I haven't had any issues getting out just a regular garlic clove either.

I have been dealing with yeast for years. I find boric acid suppositories work the best for me. Garlic didn't seem to help much or I wasn't patient enough! I buy boric acid from the pharmacy and make my own capsules with chopped up calendula flowers to aid in healing. Boric acid reportedly is not safe during pregnancy. I get more yeasty around my menses so stick the capsule in before my tampon mostly during the night. I have tried many many other methods, this seems to work best. At the onset when I had chronic yeast I used the suppositories daily for at least a month and then just when I had my period. Good luck!

Have you tried using another method besides tampons to see if that helps? I have heard of lots of women saying that going to cloth mama pads, or a keeper, or diva cup have made their monthly issues around their period so much easier. Just a thought. I would hate to have to go through this monthly!!

A few years late and new to this Just want to add that I JUST saw this garlic thing after work today so I decided to try it so far it's been 5hrs and let me say discharge has stopped ... I did use Monistat 3 nights in a row though but discharge didn't stop at all until today I'm pretty happy and relief I believe that this does work and maybe Monistat help too.
For tonight ill just stick with the garlic if my symptoms return ill go back to Monistat and update ...
Hope it helps other gals too. Having a yeast infection is no joke greensad.gif

I'm wondering if its safe to use this garlic treatment when I'm 3 weeks postpartum. My bleeding is down to just occasional spotting. I was told not to stick anything up in there until bleeding was completely done. Thoughts?

If you push the garlic up further, the burning stops. My daughter is 9 months pregnant and she put a clove of garlic in her vagina before bed and it stopped her heartburn completely, and she woke up feeling amazing. :joy

I had no idea garlic would help!! I will have to try it next time. I do have sensitive skin and worried that it may burn a lot. Any other mommas have sensitive skin and it not burn?
