So it can be used undiluted straight out of the bottle on a tampon for inserting, but it's not safe to use on the outside?? I'm sorry if I'm confused about this; I'm pretty stupid when I'm pregant.

Oh, right on. I have both of those things too! I look forward to using this mix.

Again with my stupidity...what is ACV??


Thankyou Red Trillium for the peroxide info. It still sounds painful and dangerous; but when I posted this thread I was desperate for answers and the next time; I'll totally try that!!

I've used tea tree oil for yeast infections. It hurts like I get it on the outside, but I've taken a tampon applicator (when I used tampons...), inserted it halfway, and then dripped the oil down the tube.

I've also used peeled garlic gloves as suppositories. And then my third option is to take yogurt and freeze it in a cardboard tampon applicator. Then peel the cardboard off and insert.

I used to get yeast infections ALL the time, after using these tricks I never had to use an OTC or prescription cream again, and eventually stopped getting the yeast infections entirely.

Oh- and ACV= Apple Cider Vinegar

ACV - apple cider vinegar

Garnettmama - thanks for the tips, I'm a psoriasis suffer too and it's just horrible when it flares up there.

I have to add about the tea tree. My midwives told me never t use it during pregnancy or while TTC or breastfeeding because tea tree can change your hormone balance. It is fine fr some, but those who have minor to major hormone issues should not use it while PG, BF or TTC.
