This garlic yeast infection remedy is the fastest and most natural way to eliminate yeast. It’s quick, easy, cheap, and effective!
Allow me to tell you my story…
Possible Yeast Infection Symptoms Include:
- Vaginal itchiness or soreness
- Cottage cheese like discharge
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Vaginal discomfort or burning sensation
What’s the difference between a yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis?
Yeast infections are associated with a generally odorless thick white discharge. If there is a smell it will be a bready or beer like odor. Bacterial vaginosis comes with a thinner fishy smelling discharge. BV can also be triggered by a new sexual partner. Yeast is generally treated with antifungals. Where BV is treated with antibiotics.
How to prepare your garlic yeast infection remedy
Do you have a recurring problem with yeast infections?
One thing I didn’t realize about my yeast infection problem was that my body was trying to tell me something. Yeast is caused by Candida Albicans. Candida is a naturally occurring yeast that inhabits the vagina, and the gut, and other places. When this yeast is kept in balance it is perfectly fine, but when you have an overgrowth of candida problems start to sprout up, one of those being vaginal yeast infections. Unfortunately, since candida grows in many places in the body, by just treating the local infection you are not getting to the route cause of the problem.
If you’d like to know if you have a candida overgrowth check out this post: I Killed Candida
If my approach doesn’t help you, then I highly recommend this program by Linda Allen. She is a medical researcher, nutritionist, health consultant and former candida sufferer. She devoted her life’s work to healing her own body and now helps thousands of people by sharing what she learned along the way. I highly recommend you check out what she has to offer. Best of luck to all of you!
my friend did this! she tested positive for group b strep with her first 2 pregnancies then she read about using a “garlic tampon” for a few days before the test. with her 3rd pregnancy she tested negative! I cant say for sure that the garlic is what made the difference but it was pretty interesting hearing this from her 🙂
Tiffany Murphy says
I’ve heard that is how to test negative for group b strep also. In the past I tested positive as well. And when the time comes around again I will be trying it out. Thank you for your comment!
I did this also. I never used the string though. I would peel it, stick it in, go to bed, and in the morning I would taste garlic and it would pop out with my morning pee!
Tiffany Murphy says
Well it should work just fine that way. I, however, get afraid of it not just falling out. Silly I suppose. 🙂
Garlic is the best thing ever! During my last pregnancy I had a two month battle with the little yeastie guys. I tried everything, and nothing worked more than a day or two. My sister was fighting a persistent bladder infection during this time, and was told to crush a clove of garlic (crushing is important), and swallow that every few hour. So I thought I’d try it too. It was amazing! I knw, it is extreme. After two months thoug I was feeling extreme. Now anytime I feel like I may be heading down the road to an infection again, I just crush one clove and swallow it before bed, by the next morning my symptoms are gone. Garlic is so good for you, inside and out.
Thanks for the post! This blog it great!
Hello. I am absolutely obsessed with eating garlic, raw. Yes, hehe. You mentioned crushing them before swallowing. Will it be as effective if i just eat them raw? How many would I need to eat every hour and for how many days? Thank you so much in advance 😉
I eat raw garlic also is the best and onion also
Wow, i think it will be so good for me to try it. Thank you guys
Garlic is a miracle cure for me. My immune system is less than par, due to chronic Lyme disease. I’ve had a fungal lung and sinus infection for months. My naturopath finally prescribed liquid allicin (stabilized garlic compound) to use with a nebulizer, and for the first time in over a year, I’m clearing the infections. Since yeast infections are Candida overgrowth, it stands to reason that your number one weapon would be garlic! God gave us a huge gift in the allium family.
Amen! I’m glad you found something natural to help you out. And you can’t go wrong with garlic… well… unless you’re headed out on a first date! 🙂
So, you’re saying that I should expect to get a yeast infection after I have relations the first time?! I am getting married this April (God Willing). So I am afraid if this is true? It will be my husband and I first time so does this still apply to us?
In my understanding, it is very common to get a yeast infection following your “first time.” I don’t think there is any reason to be afraid though. If you are really worried about, I would suggest adding some extra probiotics, and taking some garlic supplements shortly before you tie the knot and during your honeymoon. If your immune system is healthy it shouldn’t be an issue. And congratulations! 🙂
My husband and I had never had relations before our wedding night and, yes the yeast problem showed up within a few weeks. It did stay away after discontinuing birth control pills. It seems to have a lot to do with hormone levels.
I couldn’t agree more. It is much more likely to get yeast infections in you are using hormonal birth control. Thank you for your comment!
Emily @OurAwesomeAdventuresAbroad says
I have never heard that before. If you are using condoms or spermicide then maybe. I think it is related to hormones and birth control more than sex itself. I haven’t been on birth control for almost two years, though, and I still get them. I am trying to get my candida under control by diet and using supplements. I guess I need to get some garlic, we’ll see how hubs likes that. 😉
I’ve been married for two and a half years and have never had a yeast infection. Some helpful tips that I’ve practiced are to pee after having sex, and to use coconut oil instead of any store brand lubricant. Hope that helps!
I have not, thankfully, had a yeast infection for quite a few years, but when I did I popped a tampon into some good, plain yogurt, and it worked! As I remember, it was only for about a day, or just overnight.
That is great idea! I’ve heard of people inserting yogurt with an applicator but it just seems messy. I bet the dipped tampon worked great!
Will yogurt gone bad inside vagina overnight and cause another infection?
Will yogurt goes bad overnight and cause another vagina infection?
Great question! I had never even thought of that. If you’ve ever made yogurt you know that it sits out all night in the make process. It weirded me out to leave milk out the first time, but every time I’ve made it has turned into yogurt the next morning. In today’s world we have developed a phobia of food gone bad, but traditionally food was left out on purpose to breed good bacteria and to preserve food. When you use yogurt this way that is what is happening. The yogurt helps your body increase its levels of good bacteria so that it can fight off the bad. I have never heard of it “going bad” and causing problems.
I did the yogurt thing because I was itching so bad at work and had no other options so I went for it. Within 20 minutes the itching was stopping AMAZING! Just wear a pad but it doesn’t go bad and cause an infection because it has the bacteria needed to fight the bad bacteria. Dr Oz has a segment about yogurt tampons if you youtube it.
hi.. than you for that information.. i just wanna also ask if garlic for pussy is safe for the pregnant? kindly response and thank you..
I have used garlic during pregnancy without any problems.
How often should this tampon be changed”?
I change mine every 6 to 8 hours. You don’t have the risk of TSS like with an actual tampon. I just like to keep it fresh and potent.
Hi I’m a new blogger love your site….. Just have a question how long does it take for it to cure?
Hi there, I’m currently trying this method and wanted to add how I’m doing it. I was loath to sow every single garlic clove before using. Therefore I took the little net thingy the garlic comes in. Sew one end shut, now I insert the garlic into this little sac. Then I make the holes and insert the whole thing with the shut end forward. Just grip the open end to pull the whole thing out afterwards.
Maybe some of you want to try it out this way. Great post anyway (and the garlic taste is way weird 😉
First thing I’d do is see your GYN. Make sure that there isn’t a serious issue there first. If everything checks out, I’d look into some natural ways of dealing with this problem.
For me I started looking into fruits and vegetables that help. Grapefruit and pineapples help a lot. There are also vitamins that help but none really showed any type of change for me.
Then after spending a few hours on the net I came across this natural supplement for women’s needs and care called balance complex for women.
I’ve been let down before by supplements promising the world. This type of issue is especially embarrassing and I’m just thrilled this has been working so far.
Would tell any lady to not hesitate and give this a try, will change your life.
I just had a thought as I was reading the end of this post, that the reason that you smell and taste the garlic is that it is going through your system, it’s probably like putting essential oils on your feet or doing a detox foot soak, I would imagine that the skin inside is very porous (or something similar) so that it goes through your entire body healing probably more than just the yeast inside of your vagina. And definitely confirm that it is a yeast infection, I used to get a trichinosis vagina infection all the time when I was married, I imagine since garlic kills all kinds of bugs it would be effective in treating this to, but it’s better to know what your dealing with as to correctly judge the time to keep doing this. These infections seem to have very similar symptoms to yeast.
Bethany Loerke says
did it not burn when you put it inside you? i tried it once and felt like my lady parts were on fire!
I have heard of this happening, but it has never happened to me. Just a guess but I’m betting the infection was causing extra sensitivity. Maybe adding some coconut oil would help.
wish i had seen you post! thought i was dying
Thanks for sharing… ive been getting yeast infection almost every month..and it just happens before getting my period…. ive read that it can be hormonal. . But i will definitely use this method and see if it helps…
Thanks for a wonderful and natural remedy. I am concerned about how safe it is during pregnancy. I am during my first trimester and caught a terrible yeast infection. Did you use it during your pregnancy? I do not want to hurt my Little one, we know that soft tissues absorb Everything. Thanks for a reply!
I really can’t tell you what will be safe for you. But I did use it while pregnant. It helped me to overcome GBS later in pregnancy, as well as killing yeast infections at other times.
Thank you soo much for this natural remedy. Im on my second day of using this, so far i can feel its improvement. Before i knew about this garlicremedy, i got really depress bcoz i havent experience this kind of infection before. i was so new about the cottage cheese like discharges and the itchy feeling its really disturbing. Until i read your natural remedy to for this yeast infection. thank you for sharing this very informative solution. God Bless you.
I’m not really sure how I got yeast infection, but does this really work? Ow long should I do this?
Harrison A says
can i use garlic when i’m on my period?
I’ve done it, but it may not be as affective.
You mentioned in the article about proper clean up after sex, I am very curious about this, it seeps to be something I struggle with, and I’m pretty sure that is what is causing my infections.
For proper clean up. Always always pee after sex. It helps to make sure nothing is stuck in the uretha. Also if you flex your pelvic muscles and then release as you pee it helps to remove the sperm from the vagina. Basically do your kegals on the potty. Then make sure everything is wiped up and dry. A few other notes, if I lived in Europe I would use the bidet afterwards everytime. Then it would truly be clean. Also, don’t use soap or douche. The vagina is a self cleaning organ. Trust it, and it will take care of itself. I hope this is helpful. 🙂
Yes thank you
I tried this. and it burned kinda like the over the counter cream does when inserting inside of you. :/ i let it be in me for like an hour as I was doing house cleaning but then it came out of me as I went #1 , then I decided to flush it and try again before going to bed. Though itching has eased down and don’t feel as hurting as how I was prior insertion of garlic.
Just push it up a little higher that way it doesn’t slide out . You’re not alone I’m on day 2 and the garlic seems to be helping. Make sure you make good pokes into the garlic so the juices flow .
I will try this later. I think imw having yeast infection already for the first time. I’m 21 and I hope this works! 🙂
Do you notice an odor while using this?
My Dr thinks I might have a small yeast infection around my bra area from sweating and wearing my bra too long. Wondering if you think garlic might help if rubbed on… Thoughts?
Yeast infections on this skin can be treated topically with yogurt or coconut oil or rosemary essential oil. Just pick one and use it until it clears up.
I have not tried this, but I have taken garlic supplements and it works! I get thrush (yeast infection in the mouth…so disgusting) when I take antibiotics, and my doctor gave me Nystatin oral rinse which didn’t work. Worse, my tongue even had a hairy, fuzzy appearance. I started taking Garlinase brand supplements because they do not give you garlic breath or skin odor, but have alicin, the medicinal compound which aged garlic tablets do not. It cured the thrush. However, I still had some of the “hairy tongue” associated with Flagyl, the antibiotic I’d been on. For a lot of people, this is a permanent side effect. Well, I had colon surgery a few weeks ago and came home with thrush AND the beginnings of a vaginal yeast infection as well. I’d been off my garlic supplements for three weeks (they can cause bleeding in surgery), so I decided to try taking two a day. In just three days, not only was my thrush and yeast infection gone, my tongue was completely smooth and healthy for the first time in almost a year! I keep looking at it in the mirror because I can’t believe it. I just wanted to share my story because I know a lot of people experience tongue changes with Flagyl.
I had oral thrush from a side affect from my new birth control. I used organic unrefined coconut oil and swished it around in my mouth for about 20 mins and the next morning it was almost gone! I think I did this for about 3 nights and it was completely gone.
Brezee Clrak says
I have been to the doctor and am taking medication for it. Will the garlic still work? This is the first time I’ve gotten one and it’s very swollen.
This book is great for natural remedies, Down There Sexual and Reproductive Health The Wise Woman Way by Susun S. Weed., Also, yogurt has lessen the irritation factor, I’ll try the garlic to see how works. Thanks!!!
Thanks Pat! i haven’t read that one, but I’ll add it to the list. And yes yogurt works great too, but only at night. It works well to alternate between garlic in the day and yogurt at night. 🙂
Hiiii! I’ve just started trying this method and I hope it will work! But , how long does it take to cure this YI? And that , am I the only who can’t actually taste the garlic smell even though I used it overnight ?? The discharge did seem to be much better than before however it stil irritate the vulva part and make it itch.. any guide please ? Really appreciate all the help!
It will just depend on how severe the infection is and what other things could be contributing to your problem. FOr example, if you eat a lot of sugar it could take longer. Good luck!
You’re a lifesaver! I’m teen, and I am afraid to tell my mom that I might have an infection down there, so I decided to use a “garlic tampon”. After a few minutes, I don’t feel itchy at all! I’m so happy, thank you so so much <3
You rock! Thank you for writing this. I have faith in this… and I’m trying for the first time tonight. I already feel better even only after 15 minutes. Is that usually the case? Or maybe that’s mental? 🙂 Either way, thank you so much! Ps. I’d like to add that I did have a burning sensation for a few moments initially, but I stuck it out and it did subside.
I don’t think it is mental. I experience the same thing… almost instant relief. But either way, I’m happy it works that way. 😉
I wish I had found your post a week ago. Last week someone told me about this garlic cure for yeast infections. I tried it and it really works. (Such a welcome relief since I’ve had chronic yeast/urinary tract infections for a while and the antibiotics are just perpetuating it. And the anti-yeast meds no longer seem to work.) The problem is that no one told me about the string thing and it never occurred to me that the glove could get sucked up inside of me. Yikes–it did and I can’t get it out! Actually there are two.:( Already tried a bath; today I planning on doing a douche. Initially I was super concerned about it enterig my uterus but apparently that’s not possible? I’m hoping it will shrivel up and find its way out; in the meantime, it has left me with a lingering bad breath.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
Well, that is no good. And I hope you can find it soon. Here are my thoughts… The vagina is a basic canal. The canal ends at the cervix. The opening in the cervix is way to small to fit the garlic. So you know that the clove is in the vagina… unless it fell out while using the bathroom unnoticed. If it were me, I would do a very low squat, you know, like little kids do when they are playing with toys on the floor… Then i would do a vaginal check with my (clean) finger to find it. It couldn’t have gone far. 😉 Good luck.
My body isn’t letting the garlic clove go haha
I’ve done the squats and tried using my fingers
this is going on the second night with it inside, is it safe to just let the garlic come out naturally? or should I continue trying to get it out myself
Can inserting garlic on my pussy make my tommy uncomfortable?
I’ve never heard of this happening.
I saw this on another website and tried it out. It really helps during the night, but during the day the itching kind of drives me crazy. This is my 3rd day now and I really don’t want to take any prescriptions. How long does this take to clear up? I kind of feel my symptoms getting better, not really to much discharge, just itching. Sorry if it’s TMI. I just really want this to work! Do you do yogurt and the garlic together or what combo should I be using?? Thank you!
Every infection is different, depending on a number of factors… severity, stress, diet… So I can’t really give you an answer for how long. Just listen to your body. Sometimes I use yogurt at night and garlic during the day. I just use a syringe to insert the yogurt at night, however, if you want to try using yogurt during the day you can dip a tampon in the yogurt and insert. If one remedy is bothersome then do something different. If the garlic burns or itches then maybe it is too strong for you or you are sensitive to it. The key with any and all natural remedies is to be willing to listen to your gut instinct and your bodies reaction. You are not at the mercy of a doctor or a specific drug, you get to make the choice how you treat your body and find what works best for you. Good luck!
Thank you very much Tiffany for taking the time to share these recommendations about this relatively sensitive topic.
Hello! Thanks for this important remedy for YI. I usually had it and it got me scared that it would give me problems with fertility. Now i know its normal and almost all women have it at different stages of their lives.
My question is, is it wrong to leave the garlin in there for two days?
Honestly, I don’t know. I personally feel safer removing it, and I also feel like the garlic is stronger if it is fresher.
Ok so this is my second yeast infection in my 4th month of pregnancy. The 1st time, I used essential oils. Which did work, but it took a while and then came back quickly. So I thought I would try this (I had read about it the 1st time around), BUT it immediately started to burn like crazy. I couldn’t keep it in more then a minute. Is this normal? Do I just need to suck it up and let it burn?
Help I’m miserable.
First, always listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right don’t do it. Second, in nature there is always more than one way to deal with a problem. I would personally skip the garlic if it burned or itched and I’d use plain yogurt instead. You can either insert with a syringe at night or dip a tampon in the yogurt and insert. Good luck and congrats on your pregnancy!
Can this be done during work hours or will the odor affect people and coworkers in passing?
LOL… I have always worried about that myself. And since you can often taste it, it means you can smell it too. But I’ve ask my husband and he has never noticed. So, I think you are safe. If not, blame it on your dinner. 😉
I have had BV for almost as long as I can remember, I have been on 5 or more courses of antibiotics and nothing worked. Not even a little. Then I tried garlic. First I was afraid to insert it so i just ate raw cloves for a month. No big difference.
Then, I started inserting it. And it worked I guess. I mean before I used to have discharge 3-6 times a day. After inserting it I had it only once a day. So I kept inserting it for 2 weeks and then I got my period so I stopped for that week. After my period, i started doing it again. And its been 5 days but it seems like its not working anymore. I have discharge the same way as before.
I’m confused and I don’t know if this means that the treatment is no longer working. Or if I should just stick with it and continue doing it. I really don’t have anyone to talk to about this so i’d really appreciate your input. I understand that you’re not a doctor but I just want to know if you may have an idea of what is going on.
Thanks so much.
BV is no fun. I’m sorry you are struggling. First off, if you haven’t seen a doctor for this, then I would recommend making sure that is what the problem is. Also, the female body does all sorts of weird things and discharge can be perfectly normal at times. If you are unfamiliar with this then we highly recommend the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. It isn’t just about how to have babies, but also how to prevent them, and most importantly it offers a thorough education on how the body changes during the course of a cycle and how to find and track those signs so that you know for sur eif discharge is normal or not. Secondly, if one method isn’t working try another, or alternate. I’ve seen one remedy work for one person and not the next, but an alternative work without a problem. So, you could try plain yogurt. This can be done two ways. You can either dip a tampon in yogurt and then insert it into the vagina, or you can use a syringe to insert it. The second method only works at night, otherwise it falls out.
Just be sure it’s sugar free yogurt! Or you could try making milk kefir and using that-it has a TON more beneficial bacteria than yogurt, and if you make it yourself, it will be SO MUCH better. You can get kefir grains from a lot of places. I even belong to a fermenting and kefir page on FB.
Hello Tiffany and happy holidays ! So I just can across your eevdire and decided to go ahead and give the garlic method a try. So far so good and thatyou for listing to help women around the world with that one problem we all cone across eventually. I wanted to know being this is the first night when I remove the clover and shower how long will it take the garlic smell in the vagina to go away ? Or will it be gone as soon as I shower?
It will go away quickly. Not sure exactly how long but a shower would probably be good enough.
Hi Tiff i just started using the garlic merthod,its my first day today.i think its already working cos i think the garlic pernetrated where it was most ichy nd i feels better even though it feels tingly ,is it normal?
It sounds pretty normal.
hi there i am about to try ur remedy and i hope it works bcuz am afraid to go to the doctor
thanking u for ur advice
esther c says
i just start tonight and i hope it works cos i have really suffered because of this.
I am interested in what you tell your friends about cleaning up after sex? I suffer from recurrant BV and yeast =/
I always tell them to pee after sex, and to stop and start the flow because that helps to remove semen (not all of it but it does help eliminate the excess), and to wipe everything off. My cleap up tips aren’t magical but they do make the difference for some people, especially those that are just becoming sexually active.
What if you try this method and then leave it on all night. The next day when you take it out how long till the garlic smell goes away? Even atter shorring is the smell still there? What if my boyfriend goes down on me do you think he’ll taste it? Just curious sorry if I’m putting it really out there
I personally never notice a residual smell. And as a personal rule I wait to engage in sexual activity for a day or two to make sure the infection is gone, so I don’t cause additional problems for me or my husband. So, I have no idea if a garlic taste would be present.
Akwe onyawole says
This post is indeed useful.. Thank u very much
I’m here in this site because I have a garlic in my vagina right now. I’ve tried this before along with an oral medication. It worked but now I just want to know if the garlic can cure it alone. I’m very optimistic about this but I’ve also read online that it doesn’t have a scientific basis on it. So I’m glad I’ve stumbled into this article. I felt like I’m not alone in trying this. So thank you!
Hi am Beatrice nd for de past 5yrs av been suffering frm candidiasis, plz can dis garlic help?
Hi I have a question. I tried the garlic because it’s easy access and Im not much of a fan of the dr.s . I typed the garlic and I was wondering if it’s normal for it to burn really bad I’ve only tried it 2days and the fist day it wasn’t so bad it burnt kinda bad but not so much as the second day so I stopped that because I couldn’t even sleep of how bad it burned . . I wonder if that has happened to anyone
I am trying the garlic now. The last 2 nights I have tried probiotics and tea tree oil in my hooha lol .I think they are working but I’m not 100% better yet. I am very perplexed about why in got a yeast infection as I take probiotics, Apple cider vinegar and coconut oil on a daily basis and I also do not consume sugar. I dint have the typical yeast infection discharge but I do have a quite a bit of odorless, clear discharge so I’m not exactly sure if its a yeast infection or not. I do have intense itching. Anyways I wanted to try all the natural remedies first instead of going to the doctor and getting an antibiotic.
Oh I actually forgot to add..I wasn’t sure how far up to put the garlic? It kind of freaked me out lol
I tried it and it TOTALLY HELPED !!!!!! Thanks for sharing so I’m gonna do the same
Ow I just went all out. 3 in. Lets hope it’s a lucky number. I did start 4 days ago with the yogurt, it’s been helpful some what. But still the same texture. The colour has got lighter. But the yogurt can get messy. Tomorrow I will repeat. With garlic but only one. ;0). Legs crossed..
I’m trying this right now… I woke up with this crazy itchiness … Was very miserable so I started browsing and I came across this… Hope it works so far there was just a slight tingling but it passed … Itchy sensation easying …waiting now
I had sex for the first time, got a UTI so went on antibiotics And a week later, thrush. I’ve had three treatments And nothing, two over the counter and one perscriotion I just can’t afford this anymore! I have garlic in now, hope to God it works as I am broke, concerned about how long I’m going to smell like garlic down there! I hope it goes soon :/
hey, I have been suffering from yeast infection from last 2.5 years. Every time I take heavy doses prescribed by my gyno, but after a week or so all goes in vain. It happens few weeks after I get intimate with my hubby. 2.5 years ago I got married and haven’t been able to get rid of this since. Doctor says my hubby is not infecting me… I don’t know what to do… do you think garlic will help in this scenario?
Yes. I would give this a try, and you should also look into a possible candida overgrowth. For myself, I found that I needed to cut way back on sugar (sugar feeds yeast) and to add a lot of probiotic rich foods into my diet like apple cidar vinegar, fermented saurkraut, and kefir. Repeated yeast infections is generally a sign of a bigger problem. Think of it as a whole body issue that is manifesting in your weakest area. For some people it shows up as athlete’s foot, for others as vaginal yeast infections, and others it can be a chronic skin rash. If you can heal your body as a whole you will most likely find that you won’t get yeast infections anymore but your body will feel better in general. Type candida into our search bar and you can read the post about how I overcame that problem as well. Best of luck to you!
Thank you for the awesome post
I am currently pregnant with a terrible.infection and on the 3rd night of treating it with garlic anD it’s definitely helpingg, but on the last 2 nights, when I removed the garlic, the garlic had a green tint – is this normal????
I’ve never really analyzed the garlic after. I just drop it in the toilet. lol. But yes, I believe it can have a bit of a green tint.
please am scared of inserting the ball of garlic inside my vag, If i squeeze out the water and insert into my vag will it still give the same result?
Honestly I don’t know. But a good alternative is plain yogurt. When using yogurt you can either dip a tampon in the yogurt and insert into the vagina, or use a syringe a squeeze into the vagina. If you use the syringe do so right before bed so that it doesnt all fall out.
Is it safe to use garlic cloves overnight in vagina during pregnancy??
I have done this in the past but please remember that we aren’t doctors, and this post is for informational purposes only.
What color will the garlic be once removed.
Sometimes it can have a slight green or blue tint.
yea I think she is right cause I started experience this infection after I got married
Thank you so much for posting this! I thought I was insane for doing this and never wanted to tell anyone bc they’d have me put away! I started using garlic to treat pimples in high school when someone told me it was a natural bacteria killer; and it worked.. When I started getting yeast infections, I thought “why not try garlic up there?” A little voice in my head said no, remember how much it stung when we put it on pimples? But then one day I, like you, i just didn’t have twenty bucks for the monistat corporation… so I basically made the same arrangement you show here, just threaded more bc i was super paranoid about losing it… in there! It burned like crazy for about the first minute, and then no itching!!!! Yay!
I used it yesterday and there was a great change and even today I have it as we talk, thanks Tiffany
Hi. Silly question, but any special type of string that you used? I am very nervous about the string breaking and having to visit my gyn to retrieve the garlic!
I just use regular sewing thread. Ultimately if the string did break there would be no place for the garlic to go. A little squatting, bearing down, and a quick finger search should retrieve it without problem.
I have been experiencing this yeast infection for a while, and i think i should try this garlic remedy.Hope it will work for me. Please for how many days should i use it?
Jacque lynda kyakuheire says
I loved,wow the day I used it,i said bye bye to yeast infections.i recommend to my friends&they can’t thank me enough.
Jacky Nicholson says
Can the green color of the garlic have to do with the amount of time the garlic remain in or is there some other reason?
Yes, it works. I use Kyolic garlic liquid on a tampon. I was plagued with yeast infections years ago and the doctors had nothing else to prescribe at the time ( am allergic to all yeast infection creams). This saved my life!!!! I keep some on hand at all times (refrigerated).
thanks tiffany am so greatful about the post av read, in fact am just going to try it out
hi tiffany I’m 1month pregnant is it safe for me to crush and swallow the garlic since I have the infection?
I eat garlic all the time when I’m pregnant. I’ve never seen anything that would say it is harmful.
Hi, will you smell like garlic after he treatment?
I always worry that I will but the smell goes away very quickly.
