Drinking buttermilk while taking the course of antibiotics helps prevent the secondary yeast infection naturally.

My poor mil had issue with yeast no matter what she was taking an antibiotic for.......that is the first "preventative" any doc ever gave her back in the 1930's-40's and it never failed to work. Strength of the antibiotic might make her have to take it a few days longer than the antibiotic though. :)

Been there, done that on the UTIs. Worse, I'm also prone to kidney infections. (If you thing a UTI is bad, combine those symptoms with feeling like someone has taken a burning hot knife, stabbed you in the kidney with it, and is twisting it around. NOT fun!!

Yes, preventions IS the key, but I have stocked up on something called "D-Mannose" powder (it comes in gelcap form). Once I notice the start of a UTI, I start taking the capsules, and it is knocked out withing a few days, WITHOUT antibiotics.

It's basically the "active ingredient" in cranberries, in super-concentrated form, WITHOUT the sugars/calories. The stuff REALLY works. I had to order it online, because nobody else seems to carry it. A bottle of 120 500mg capsules cost me about $20, but WELL worth it.

Ditto Gunns. My wife also has a "yeast reaction" to some antibiotics. Her doctor always scrips something for simultaneously for it. I picked up the Aquatic version of that too.

My husband gets them too and he drinks cranberry juice and it clears him right up. We keep AZO also. If I get one pretty much have to get an antibiotic and like others then get the durn yeast infection. It's been quite awhile since I've had one, hope it stays that way.

Hate these infections! So hard to clear up and come back so often!!! :cursing: Been battling this for over a year. :cursing: I am allergic to penicillin and sulfa.



Whats the dosage on the fish flox? For an adult female of course.

Also something to keep in mind. Normal, traditional store bought yogurt or even Kefir for that matter barely has the minimum amount of good bugs. Best is to have some freeze dried cultures for yogurt or kefir and get good at making yogurt. We make yogurt a lot at home.

Raymac!!!!! You are a hoot!!!!!!!!!!! :rofl:

Tamtbell, The last scrip for Cipro (three weeks ago) was 500 mg twice a day for 10 days. I think it is usually given for maybe 7 days,but I have had such a hard time with this %^*&%$ that I think doc wanted to make sure it would take care of it. Check PDR or nurse"s manual on time frame to be sure.

I have taken Cran-actin with D mannose,cranberry juice,cranberry pills, and also raw vinegar trying to get rid of this mess. It took 10 days of sulfa (which I am now allergic to!) in Dec.to clear(?) it up. Back again in 5 months.#$$%&&%$@#@#$%%^&**((*(*&%^%$. Need I say more!!!!!!

Am currently taking the cran-actin,vinegar,and trying to drink more water. And following cleansing procedures. Dag -nab- it,expletive deleted! Sick and tired ot it!!!!

:cursing: :'( :( :angry:

I will share d-mannose & buttermilk/keffir ideas with dd. Bet she won't drink keffir. I love it. Better than buttermilk.
