What about getting rid of a yeast infection?

We’ve all been there and we all hate it.  The Yeast Infection.  Face it, it’s miserable and nobody really likes to talk about it.  But, we’d all like to get rid of it.  Well, last week, I got hit with one.  In calling my midwife to find out if the usual Monistat was safe while breastfeeding, I was given some very savvy advice and it worked!  So, I pass it on to you.

Take a sitz bath with apple cider vinegar.  I know it sounds crazy, but believe me.  It works!  Here’s how you do it.  Fill the bath with warm water until there is just enough water to cover your bottom.  To the water, add 1 cup apple cider vinegar.  Soak for about 10 minutes 3 times a day for the first couple of days.  Depending on how advanced your infection is it may take longer, but if it’s mild and just starting, these 2-3 days should take care of it.  Plus, you get two advantages in one:  You got rid of your yeast infection AND you got a relaxing bath.  Definitely beats the goopy Monistat.

As a note, if your symptoms do not improve or even worsen after the first few days, be sure to contact your health care provider as there may be something else going on that you are unaware of.
