If you’ve got a yeast infection, you may notice the following symptoms:
These symptoms can be confused with bacterial vaginosis, that’s why it’s really important to see a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis. If you cannot see a doctor, it’s a good idea to do a vaginal pH test before your start your treatment.
Monistat 7 comes with 7 applicatorfuls of cream containing Miconazole, an antifungal agent. Insert it into your vagina before going to bed for 7 consecutive nights and your symptoms will disappear in no time. Monistat is a great option if you don’t suffer from yeast infections very often.
There are also other treatment options available: Monistat 1 (one day treatment) and Monistat 3 (three day treatment), you can read more about them here. However, according to reviews, Monistat 7 gives the best long lasting results, that’s why I always recommend it.
If you suffer from recurrent yeast infections, you may need something more potent than Monistat or other common OTC suppositories for yeast infection. Research shows that boric acid is very effective even in cases of severe, recurrent yeast infections. Insert one suppository into your vagina before going to bed for 7 consecutive nights.
After you finish treatment, you can use one suppository a week for up to 6 months to prevent yeast infections from coming back, but do it only if you suffer from recurrent yeast infections.
One of the best boric acid products for yeast infection is BoriCap. If you order before 2 pm, it will be shipped on the same day, so you can be sure to start your treatment soon.
If your symptoms are relatively mild, and you don’t suffer from recurrent yeast infections, a gentle treatment with a 100% natural mixture of coconut oil and tea tree oil may be just enough. Studies show that both of these ingredients have got an antifungal effect, s they are able to kill yeast cells and relieve your symptoms.
Femmallay suppositories contain only natural ingredients: Tea Tree Essential Oil, Coconut Oil, Illipe Butter and Carnauba Wax so you can be sure you’re getting a pure natural product for your vaginal health. These suppositories can be used to treat vaginal yeast infection as well as bacterial vaginosis due to the antiseptic qualities of tea tree oil.
There are many things you can do to avoid yeast infections from coming back. I wrote a detailed article about it here, so in this section I’ll share the most important tips:
A vaginal yeast infection, although not life threatening, can make your life miserable. The sooner you start your treatment the easier it will be to get rid of it for good. As soon as you experience vaginal itching and discharge, it’s crucial to go to see your doctor to get diagnosed and treated. The treatments I recommend above are very effective, but your doctor may prescribe a more potent medication, better suited to your needs.
Some women prefer to treat their yeast infection at home, without buying over the counter suppositories. In some cases, natural remedies for yeast infection prove very effective, but if you decide to use them and your symptoms don’t ease within 3 days, use a different treatment option.
