farrah - December 17

hi i've been on yaz for about two weeks now. first week went pretty well. but 2 days ago i developed a yeast infection. been treating it with home remedies but didn't worked. the odor i can bare but the itchiness is way beyond my control. can anyone please help me?

it's usual thing to happen while on birth control pills. address your problem to your doctor so he/she can give you treatment that you need.

i get this one too while on yaz. been on yaz for a year. i have no problem so far, side effects isn't really bad. only problem is, i get yeast infection almost every month and it's kinda disturbing cause it usually appears on special occasion so i have to give it up.

soak a tampom into curds or yogurt and place it inside the vagina for at least an hour. repeat procedure two to three times a day. hope this helps.

another home remedy is to drink at least two glasses of buttermilk a day. you can drink this with or without infection. it cures and prevent yeast infection.

you can also try tea tree oil, it's known to be a natural antifungal.pour a few drops of tea tree oil on a tampon and insert it into the vagina.
do this every morning and night until yeast free.

hi everyone! reading the symptoms for yeast infection makes me wonder if i develop one. i have itchy vagina like two days now. red in color , well maybe because of too much itching. heavy discharge and has bad odor (this one you didn't mention) what do you think?


wea - December 18

most probably yes! about the discharge.. does it smell like fish or something? home remedies has been posted here so i though you might want to try it. the steps are easy to follow.


terrence - December 18

yes you have yeast infection. have it checked as soon as possible. self treatment is okay but i would still suggest that you talk to professionals.


vida - December 18

yeast infection is not a serious problem. it can easily be treated at home. therefore, trip to clinics won't be necessary.


rechelle - December 19

although you can treat this at home, it is still not advisable to self-treat. it's better if you see a doctor.
