I have had reoccurent yeast infections BV for years. I am apparently immune to the prescription drug they give you for yeast and a I am painfully allergic to the otc creams. I read about garlic pessaries before (1 clove tied up in cheesecloth) and it had worked in the past so i tried it again. I was always skeptical of the yogurt thing but in desperation tried it and it worked IMMEDIATELY. so now, 2 acidophilus pills orally, garlic pessaries at night/8-10 HRS and topical and internal yogurt as needed for discomfort. I always hated yogurt but I thank god for it now.
