Apart from following a treatment to get rid of a yeast infection, try to follow my tips to make sure you recover swiftly and keep yeast at bay to prevent future infections:

  • Don’t take antibiotics when it’s not necessary. They kill friendly bacteria which boost your defenses against pathogenic yeast. If you have to follow an antibiotic treatment, make sure you take probiotic supplements during and at least two weeks after your treatment.

 

  • Keep your cortisol level low. Heightened cortisol level can significantly lower your immunity and make you more prone to infections. To maintain healthy amount of cortisol in your blood do the following: get enough sleep, avoid situations leading to chronic stress and cut down your caffeine intake.

  • Keep you vaginal area dry and ventilated. In order to achieve this you can: sleep naked, wear 100% cotton or silk underwear and loose fitting trousers and skirts (preferably made of cotton or silk), get changed straight after exercise or a swimming session.

 

 

 

  • Any type of injury to vulva or vaginal tissue can provide an opportunity for Candida to start an infection, so make sure you practice safe sex and try not to have sex more than  seven times a week to avoid microinjuries.

  • Avoid steroid medications because they tend to trigger yeast infections. If you have to follow a steroid treatment ask your doctor to prescribe oral antifungal medication as a preventative measure.

 

  • If you suffer from diabetes, cut down on sugar because increased glucose levels in your blood are an great source of food for Candida.

  • Choose ozone or UV-sanitize swimming pools instead of chemically treated ones. The chemicals in conventional swimming pools can change the pH in your vagina making you more vulnerable to infection.

 

  • Avoid vaginal douches as they can upset your vaginal flora leading to low levels of friendly bacteria that protect you from vaginal infections.

 

Conclusion

As you can see, there’s a lot you can do to treat and prevent yeast infections and make sure it doesn’t come back. Don’t get discouraged if your antifungal treatment hasn’t worked, try a different option and you’ll find a treatment that works for you. In my case boric acid suppositories were a life saver, but then again, each of us is different and what works for me may not work for you.

  • Hi, I was struggling to get rid of my yeast infection for weeks, it was coming and going. Now I found your article about ginger and I am using the ginger tea tampons you recommended, so far so good! After two days I don’t feel any itching anymore, I’ll keep inserting them for a few more days and hopefully the infection will be gone. Thank you so much!

  • Hello, can I use boric acid suppositories when I’m on my period?

    • Hi Fran, you shouldn’t use ay vaginal suppositories during your period. You could use probiotic tampons to relieve your symptoms and reestablish a healthy vaginal pH and you can start using suppositories straight after your period. Good luck!
