    Default Yogurt And Thrush

    I heard that yogurt helps to clear up thrush.

    The only time I've ever had thrush was when I was pregnant with DS (he's now 5 yrs).

    And I've never liked yogurt. So I just dealth with the thrush.

    But of late, I have been eating yogurt with muslie for breakfast with DS.

    And now.......I have thrush!

    How do you figure that??

    I'm pretty sure that yoghurt is only effective if it is actually applied to the area, not eaten? And plain , live yoghurt of course, not the flavoured kind!

    Oh the irony!

    Yogurt usually has very little good bacteria to prevent thrush when taken orally. Best to get a yogurt very high in live pro biotics and apply to the vagina directly, make sure to chuck on a pad afterwards and avoid eating sugar.

    Personally I go for the meds, icant stand thrush

    Unfortunately, thrush is something I have come to know a lot about over the last 15 years!

    Even the best yoghurt isn't all that effective at treating or preventing thrush if taken orally.

    And believe me, it ain't all that effective applied topically either!

    Go directly for the pharmacy meds in my opinion.

    For thrush prevention, take an acidophilus capsule daily, and you can also use a diluted white vinegar douche (use a syringe) every so often. [these won't treat pre-existing thrush, just keep you healthy - usually]

    I didn't get thrush until I went on the pill and I haven't had it again since stopping it four years ago (apart from in pregnancy and I DID NOT do the vinegar douche during pregnancy - I don't think it's safe but I'm not sure and wouldn't risk it)

    Other things I found to trigger it is : tight pants on a hot day, eating loads of sugar, anti-biotics.

    To help treat it I put natural yoghurt on a pad, so soothing and cleared it up quickly.

    Garlic works well too, although it can get smelly haha!

    I agree with PPs, put it directly on your vulva. You can also tie a piece of dental floss around a peeled clove of garlic and put it in your vagina. It works a treat, but it gives you horrible garlic breath!
