It's more than that, she has to modify her diet for a while.  Since yeast thrive on sugar and other molds, she needs to cut back on processed foods (that includes wheat, sugar, etc), abstain from most fruits, and I forget what else.  Look into the candida diet.  If you like teas, incorporate teas like red clover, pau d'arco, dandelion root or leaves, etc.

Are you ready for this??? Garlic, Garlic, Garlic. Mother nature  provides us with  the cures for a lot these diseases, we just have to research and see what works for you. As many have already said, cut out sugar, all processed food, and alcohol beverages. You wanna keep your diet alkaline based because yeast cant thrive in alkalized environment. Now for the garlic cure. Yeast is fungus and garlic is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. So when you notice the first signs of the infection, you get a good size garlic clove and peel the skin. Insert the clove at night because the smell of garlic is too much during the day. One treatment usually does the trick, but if more severe then two-three nights should do. I did this for the last three infections and its been fours years since my last case.Thumbs Up

Wow...I am taking antibiotics and with that I usually get yeast infections.  But this time around, it has been none (knocks on wood).  I drink a lot of water and I cook with garlic (an obscene amount).   I still eat clean while on these antibiotics but so far I am good.  I believe I had a bout of a bladder infection at one point but it has cleared up.

I suggest taking a probiotic that is especially for women such as Iflora women

Reduce sugar intake.

Eliminate artificial sweeteners completely...they are the devil!

Reduce alcohol as much as possible especially beer

Utilize a homemade douche 2-3 times only. Mix 1-2 cups distilled water, 2-3 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar (brags), 2 cut up cloves of garlic, 1-2 drops of oil of oragano. It's better if it the mixture sits a while before you use.

Braggs makes mine worse and not better but I know a lot of women have great success w/Braggs. I'm jealous, lol
I don't have a uterus anymore (hysterectomy, yaaayyyy!) ,so I deal w/ mine by douching, either alone or combined w/ Fluconazole orally for an "double" treatment.
 
If I feel one coming, I douche w/ peroxide and water, twice a day for 3 days and it usually nips it in the bud.
 
I have had great success w/ the garlic clove remedy as well.
 
I have chopped up garlic, put it in a glass container filled w/ water for at least 24 hrs and douched w/ that 2x a day for 3 days and had great success as well.
 
I swear by probiotics tho. I participated in a probiotic study at Duke University 13 yrs ago and it turned me into a believer. I have always been told my Ph was "off" and suffered recurring BV and or/yeast.
 
Using Diflucan/Fluconazole over time will make the yeast resistant and those meds will eventually stop working. That 1 and 3 day stuff you insert is too strong. Not strong as in killing the yeast, just so strong it causes allergic reactions.  If you're going to treat it w/creams, suck it up and do the 5-7 day treatment to prevent recurrence.

This is my FIRST EVER post, but I have had many a yeast infection and it is freaking annoying. Some things:
 
1) There is a body cleanse called humaworm, it is mainly for human parasites but all of the herbs (it is entirely natural) also help with candida, as well as bacterial. You can google it if you are interested in a cleanse
 
2) Coconut oil!!!! You can eat this, finger it up there, or even create suppositories. I suggest a combo of all three, for two weeks. For suppositories, you just heat it up a bit into a liquid (it is solid at room temp) and make little bullets in like the finger of a rubber glove or something. Stick it in the freezer or fridge until you are ready to use. When you stick it up there you must lie down immediately for the night, your body will warm it up and make it liquid and it will leak out if you are up right. Warning: It will leak out in the morning. I'd do this for two weeks, while eating 1 tbsp 3 times a day for the two weeks, and then also in the morning/at lunch finger a bit up there (save the suppository for night). Eating it will stop it from remaining dormant in your body.
If you like to take baths, you can even put a little bit of coconut oil in there just for maintenance.

Sorry if this is TMI. I don't have a YI now but I've had 2 from receiving oral in the past. Whenever I do decide to engage in it can i just use an acv douche to prevent a YI from happening? I'm just curious about my options, thanks.
