I use to suffer from UTI infections now i don't get uti infections anymore i happen to get reoccurring yeast infections. I keep going to the doctor to get medicated creams which don't last and don't do the trick. I did my own research and discovered that apple cider vinegar , grapefruit seed extract pills and nursery jelly works. I would recommend this to anyone .I think all those above mentioned things work.

I had a very severe yeast infection after taking antibiotics for a UTI which I believe came from a hot tub. I took a Diflucan after trying Monistat 1 day, it (monistat) did nothing for my infection as far as pain and itching... So, while waiting for the Diflucan to kick in, I still was uncomfortable... Ran across this site, took a bath with ACV and epsom salt about a cup and a half of each, I filled the tub more than half way and the water was pretty warm and soaked for about an hour... NO MORE PAIN OR ITCHING, this is wonderful... I almost can't believe it worked so well. It feels like nothing was ever wrong. I will definetly be taking a tbl spoon of ACV every night from now on, maybe I can avoid these things all together. YAY, oh and while I was in the tub I stood up and poured more ACV between my legs, it burned something awful but when I sat back down in the water it went away, the sensation of the ACV was totally worth it to get rid of the torture of the yeast infection.

I am simply amazed! Two days ago I started developing symptoms of a yeast infection. From past experiences I was dreading starting a "drug store remedy". In the past Monostat or others like it took about seven days to work, if they worked at all. I decided to search for an alternative cure and found this web-site. I read all of the testimonies about apple cider vinegar and had "_______" in my fridge so I had nothing to lose! I drank a glass of water with two tablespoons of ACV in it. I also put 1/2 cup of it in a hot bath and soaked for 20 min. As God as my witness I got out of the tub and already felt a huge difference. It was as if the discharge magically disappeared along with the itch. I thought this could not have happened so quickly and thought when I woke up this morning the symptoms would be back. I felt some mild pain this morning, drank another glass and soaked again. I have no discharge at all today and feel no other symptoms. I plan to soak again tonight and continue to drink the ACV three times a day from now on! I want to shout this cure from the mountain tops!!! Thank you for this website and for all that contribute to it. We can spread the word that meds often mask the problem and natural is the way to go!!

I just had my first yeast infection, within a day it was so bad that I was ready to go to the ER. I tried the AZO yeast pills, you're supposed to take one daily to reduce the risk of a yeast infection and 3 daily if you already have an infection, I tried medicated douches, monistat insert and creme and vagisil. By the time I had tried all these remedies it had got so bad that I was swollen, couldn't walk and the creme had burned me so bad I was bleeding. I googled Yeast infection and found this website. THANK YOU!!!! My husband ran out right away and got me acv and regular vinegar. I know previous people have said not to get the acv in the supermarket but it was a holiday and the health food stores were closed. I took a bath with 2 cups and douched with regular vinegar and water. It was truly amazing the difference I felt right away. Today is only the next day and I think it is almost gone. I don't know if its cured or just hiding the symptoms yet but I feel so much better. It is truly amazing!

I tried the apple cider vinegar cure for a yeast infection by bathing/douching with it. I'm not sure the douching with it was a good idea. I now have pelvic soreness and believe that the infection has moved up to my uterus. Bathing in it did help the itch and pain, though.

I took a turkey baster. Filled it half way with Apple Cider Vinegar and half with water. I put a cup of apple cider vinegar in my bath tub and filled my bath tub up with warm water just enough to cover my pelvic area. I sat in the tub then I douched with the turkey baster. Next, I sat in the tub for about 15 mins. I actually saw the white infection come out of my body. It burned slightly for only about 5 minutes. The infection was GONE. No more burning, itching and clawing my insides out. You can also put some apple cider vinegar and a few drops of water on about three cotton balls and dab it on the outside vaginal area. It will burn, but it won't be unbearable. This will stop the external itching immediately. I had that infection for nearly 2 agonizing weeks. I did 2 monostat treatments and even a diflucan that my doctor called in. NOTHING worked. My itching was so severe that I couldn't sleep, walk, stand NOTHING!!!! I couldn't even go to work. I was also very swollen. After reading this web site, I was cured and for the first time in two weeks, I was able to sleep peacefully. I spent about $70.00 on that chemical crap when I discovered that a $1.00 natural method worked instantly.

Okay so far symptoms are relieved... But holy mother - whoever said this treatment burns but it's not unbearable- you are a champion! . It took about 10 full seconds for my brain to register the searing pain and once that happened all I could do was curse through my clenched teeth and pray for it to [email protected]! $&&. It took almost 25 min before I felt like I could move. Holy hell. Again so far so good but... I am really not sure I would do it Again.

For the last year I have had several YI's fed up with spending 20-30 bucks and going to the doctor I turned elsewhere. I have been drinking organic apple cider vinegar everyday for 2 days, eating acidophilus and inserting garlic cloves in to my vagina and am finally relieved! I am so frustrated that my doctor continued to prescribe me drugs that were not working! Thank you for this website and everyone's input!

My wife tried the Apple Vinegar treatment for a yeast infection. But the problem is though, when I went to get the stuff for her, the lady at the health food store told me she could take as much as she wants... don't do it that way. My wife has been sick all nite. I should have read most of these letters last night, it probably would have helped in a big time way. Now I just have to convince her to do a proper treatment with the bath and a drink to finish this sucker off. She can't take this discomfort much more. Thank you for this website and hopefully now I can finally help my wife.

It's 3am and I have been up all night with horrible burning and itching. I tried dabbing the ACV with a tissue and drinking it in water and I felt immediate relief. Thanks so much for the info, it is great to know I am not alone.

Warning

Oh a note about apple cider vinegar too. I went and bought the vinegar sold in grocery stores, you know the distilled one. NOT A GOOD IDEA. I drank it and immediately brought out into a yeast infection. I am not joking. As i drank it i began to feel that familiar itching of a yeast infection So just a warning - make sure that it is organic / raw apple cider vinegar that is bought (which is murky brown in colour) and not the other distilled one (light/clear brown is colour) Thanks again.

I was up b/c I couldn't sleep w/itching. Already tried monistat 3 for 3 nights. It didn't help. Went to get ACV out of kitchen after reading this. Drank some in water and dabbed some on tissue then on vulva...relief already. I hope this continues to work. Thanks.

Bacterial Vaginosis vs Yeast Infections. I came across this website while searching for holistic cures for bacterial vaginosis. I think its really important to identify which infection you might have as what works for curing yeast might actually make the bacterial vaginosis worse. A trained physician who is up-to date with the literature should help diagnose you. I have thought that I had yeast recurring for years while the whole time I have had Bacterial Vaginosis, a COMMON condition. Be sure to get diagnosed correctly, ladies! I am going to try taking oral folic acid and the vaginal yogurt insertion to see if either helps BV.

First, this is a wonderful and very informative website! After getting my very first yeast infection ever, I was searching for home remedies before resorting to over the counter meds. After extensive research, I decided to buy ACV and give it a try. After just a couple of days of taking 2 teaspoons in the mornings, I noticed my energy level soar. In one week, maybe less, my yeast infection was gone. I combined the ACV with taking Acidophilus. I feel healthier and "cleaner" since drinking ACV daily. I will continue this since it has so many health benefits. Thanks so much for this awesome website!
