Step by Step On How To Get Rid Of Vaginal Yeast Infection

Yeast infection can be cured and prevented. Yeast infection is one of the commonest infections among women and every 3 out of 4 women have had this infection at least once in their life time. There are four things that you can do in order to get rid of yeast infection.

  1. You should make the vaginal environment unfavorable for yeast growth.
  2. You may use over the counter vaginal creams, ointments or suppositories.
  3. You may Use Natural treatment for vaginal yeast infection.

Vaginal environment is favorable for the growth of fungi like yeast. Yeast needs moist, warmer and fertile place as well as space for its growth. Vagina is moist, warm and its mucus membrane contains glycogen which is the favorite food of yeasts. Vaginal surface is normally covered with the good bacteria and these bacteria don’t provide yeast with the space to grow. If the number of these bacteria decreases yeast will get enough space for its growth. Prolonged use of antibiotics, perfumed sprays and frequent washing with soaps decrease the number of these good bacteria and give yeast space for its growth, so avoid these things.

Keep your vagina dry by using ultra-absorbing tissues and tampons. Wear cotton clothing which allows air to pass through its pores. It will help you by keeping vagina dry and cool as well as by increasing the number of good bacteria. Don’t contaminate your vagina with harmful bacteria and after using toilet always wipe from front to back, not from back to front (i.e from vagina to anus, not from anus to vagina).

You should see the doctor first before starting any treatment. But if you are already diagnosed with yeast infection, you are not pregnant and symptoms didn’t appear after having sexual intercourse then you may take over-the-counter medications. OTC yeast infection medicines are available in the form of vaginal creams, ointments and suppositories. Don’t take OTC yeast infection pills without prescription. These medications are designed to kill yeast and are very effective against the infection. Only your doctor can decide about the period of treatment course. Some women need a longer course of treatment to get rid of infection. Usually symptoms disappear earlier even in the presence of sufficient quantity of yeasts. Therefore, it’s better to consult a doctor to prevent recurrence.

If you are sure that you have got yeast infection and also your doctor has confirmed it then you may start natural treatment which will aid you to get rid of infection fast. Garlic, Apple cidar vinegar, Cranberries, rosemary water, tea tree oil and thyme tea has natural ability to kill yeast. If the yeast infection is severe then your doctor may ask you to start oral yeast pills. These pills have side effects so leave this on your doctor and allow him to decide this for you. If still you are getting recurrent infection then next time take your sexual partner along with you to the doctor. There is a possibility that he is the culprit and responsible for giving you the infection. If you have yeast infection, don’t get panic. It is something that lots of women have and they have successfully fought and won against it.
