Can the menstrual cycle cure yeast infection

Can I use a tampon just once while treating my yeast infection, so I can go swimming with my kids?

There are three main causes of vaginal infections: the fungus (yeast) Candida albicans, the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis, and the bacterial organism Gardnerella vaginalis. Factors that can contribute to vaginal infections include antibiotics (which kill friendly bacteria, allowing yeast to grow), corticosteroids (which suppress the immune system), oral contraceptives and pregnancy (which alter the vaginal environment by changing hormone levels). When taking antibiotics what usually happens is that you will get rid of the yeast infection but then the yeast infection tends to come back. Antibiotics kill off the natural good bacteria and allow for over growth of bad bacteria which causes the person to have a recurrence of infections. There is only one way to kill off the bacteria and most physicians fail to realize that there are other ways besides medications. Consult with you doctor

Yes, not sure if it was right or not but I've done the same as what you want to and have gone swimming with a yeast infection. Your period won't cure a yeast infection so you might want to try something like Monostat.

The only thing that will " cure " a yeast infection is an anti-fungal treatment such as Diflucan, or any of the over the counter creams and suppositories.

A tampon, or your menstrual cycle will not cure it.

I agree with the above advice, but from personal experience more than once I have had a yeast infection prior to my period that went away when I got my period without any medication.

Ah! A period in no way cures a yeast infection. You should be treating infection with medication or at least a very good homeopathic remedy. I don't know that swimming with your kids is a good enough excuse to potentially harm and damage your own body. When your kids are sick, do you let them go swimming? Probably not. Well, your vagina is sick, so you need to take care of it.

Caprylic Acid is an anti candida supplement is a naturally occurring fatty acid that has been shown to kill candida organisms. Also, Probiotics - good bacteria that keeps the body's internal environment balanced, and helps the body to synthesize vitamins. Such bacteria also produce hydrogen peroxide, which effectively destroys candida albicans. These are the two most important ingredients! I used to take them as individual supplements, but Lady Soma put them into 1 pill - so now I use Lady Soma's Candida Advanced Cleanse. It worked amazingfor me, and I prefer taking one pill, instead of multiple to keep the overgrowth away. Best of luck to you!
