*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,
