                                                                                                  often when I was expecting Cassidy.

*When I was pregnant with Aaliyah I was plagued often by yeast infections.  My doctor gave me prescription medication; but soon after taking that I contracted a serious bladder (urinary tract infection - UTI).  The next time I saw him I told him about it and he replied, "Oh yea, sometimes that is a side affect of the yeast infection medication."  Then he promptly wrote me a prescription for my bladder infection.  When I arrived home, I threw it directly into the trash and went online to do my own research.  I started taking acidophiles (the culture in yogurt that combats Yeast infections) and cranberry supplements and drinking cranberry juice (As a child I hated yogurt and wasn't willing to try it again.  Now I eat yogurt almost daily...and I love it.  Great source of protein as well...especially Greek yogurt!).  Both cleared up after about two days.

Hope this helps someone!!!
Until next time,
