I'll be glad when this week is over! I've been fighting a nasty bug since last week and this morning I went to the doctor because I suspected a UTI. Now I'm on antibiotics (it was definitely a UTI), but I'm worried that I will end up with a yeast infection. I was pretty sick a couple years ago with Pneumonia/kidney infection and ended up with a nasty YI from the heavy round of anitbiotics. I guess you could say I'm a bit wary that this time wont give me another YI. I was told by my OB/GYN to ask for this pill (starts will a D?) if I were to ever go on antibiotics to help prevent a YI from developing. I am aware that bumping up my probiotics can help, unfortunately I now have a daily intolerence and can't do yogurt or anything else dairy. Any natural suggestions for helping to prevent a YI? A good probiotic supplement?

I've been reading that cranberry juice can perhaps prevent a YI? I'm currently drinking Trader Joe's 100% cranberry juice with my gallons of water. It would be nice if that was enough 🙂

Thank you,

    I like the probiotic FemDophilus but anything probiotic you pick up at the store should help! Your OB/GYN was probably talking about Diflucan, a common YI drug. I don’t know how much of the microorganisms survive to really work as a probiotic, but a lot of kombuchas are made with probiotic bacteria and yeasts (the type that don’t cause YIs), and they don’t have dairy. Some places also have coconut milk probiotics and the like.

    I’ve never tried kombuchas before although I’ve seen it around. I’m planning to stop by Walgreen’s on my way home. I’ll keep an eye out for FemDophilus, thank you!

    When I was on antibiotics, I was taking Azo Yeast to try and avoid a yeast infection. It’s all natural and has probiotics, it might be a good choice if you’re looking for a supplement.

    I had a hard time finding it, and I’m not sure where you live, but in my area, the only store that carries it is CVS. It was in the same aisle as the tampons, but obviously stores vary.

    Thank you! I’m heading over to Walgreen’s today and will take a look to see if I can find it.

    Does it say on the packet how long to take the suppliment?
