[YEA] I've never had a yeast infection before, however this month at the end of my period, I started feeling 'off' down there. First I thought it might be a UTI, because I constantly felt like I had to pee! But after a day or so I realized it just felt irritated/burned. It was slightly itchy, but mostly it was just a constant burn and uncomfortable feeling. I decided to try some natural remedies before making a trip to the drug store for a yeast treatment kit, and low and behold, it worked!
Here is what I did: DAY 1- mixed 1/2 cup boiled water with 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar. Using a cloth or cotton ball soak with solution and apply all over area. I also took a couple q tips and soaked them in and stuck them inside of my for 5 minutes. This burned a bit, but nothing horrible. I did this 3x daily.
DAY 2- Same as day 1, but after each ACV treatment take organic coconut oil and slather all over affected area. Then take a q tip and cover in coconut oil and insert into vagina. Basically you want to actually place a decent amount of coconut oil in there, probably close to 1/2 a tsp. wear a panty liner/pad as some does end up dripping.
DAY 3- By now I was actually feeling about 90% back to normal, but repeated day 2 anyway.
It is now the end of day 3 and I feel about 95% better and am hoping after one more day ill be at 100%! Definitely give these natural remedies a try, very worth saving the $20 for a kit! This whole process probably only cost me a couple dollars! (Had ingredients on hand).
