I don't usually have much problem with these and can usually clear them up pretty quickly. I guess I can blame this one on PG hormones and it is kicking my butt. I take probiotics. I have used a couple of nights of topical yogurt with added probiotics, even a couple of nights with a 3 day yeast treatment, and last night, a garlic suppository. I think it may be better, but, man, am I going to get rid of this?! It's been a week and I can usually get rid of one in a day or two. I haven't taken the garlic orally just because of the indigestion I get, but I am considering it!<br><br>
Does the hydrogen peroxide treatment for BV help this? I don't believe yeast like oxygen, either. It would be nice to have something to squirt on the area during the day to fight it.

I swear by a yoghurt-like product called Bio-K. I don't get yeast infections often, but when I do it's the only thing that will clear them up. It's like yoghurt, but has a lot more live bacteria in it. I take about a half teaspoon orally and then dip a tampon in it (a separate container, obviously <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) and wear it for a few hours during the day. My symptoms are generally gone after the first day and I continue using it for another two or three.<br><br>
I don't know if it'll help, but I sure hope it does! What a drag!

Get boric acid and put it in capsules and stick one up there every night for three nights. It works really well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>

yea, try the boric acid (there is some called yeast arrest if you don't want to fill capsules yourself....but that's pretty easy)<br><br>
once i got one with my 1st pg, i pretty much had yeast issues my entire pg b/c of pg hormones... it was more a matter of keeping myself comfy and not letting it get bad. once i had my ds, they were gone!

Thanks for the replies. I did some research on hydrogen peroxide for yeast and apparently, it is anti-fungal. So, since that is something I have on hand, I'm going to try that right now. I thought that I would let others know who were interested. I have heard anywhere from 1 tsp in a cup of water, to 2-3 TBSP in a cup of water. I read that the concentration for bacterial vaginosis was 1 part HP to 3 parts water, so that is what I mixed up. I have a peri bottle and I just squirted it on the exposed skin (something that isn't messy that I can do during the day). We'll see how it works.

Best wishes! I heard that the boric acid is what to do if all else fails <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> So hopefully what you have will work and if not the BA will get rid of it.<br><br>
