The following link gives more creditable information about why it's important to see your physician about a yeast infection before you start to self medicate.

It could be something else besides a common yeast infection.

Woopsy daisies! This link doesn't work. I have to brave this condition every single month at exacly the same time for the same duration. What on earth is going on? Have just recenlty started back on the cycle diet and this month is even worse! I am not going to a doctor to get medication....maybe to rule out diabeties. I will be starting the probiotic but why should I have to? This isn't normal.

Sorry about that...looks like that site doesn't exist anymore. Thanks for pointing it out. I'm going to have to look for another good resource for yeast infection info.

Have you tried the Vagisil OTC home test yet ? It may not actually be candida, it could be a bacteria infection AKA vaginitis. I guess that's why it's a good idea to get medical help, they can do a culture to determine whether or not it's a fungus or bacteria. Either one can be awful right before your period. A sugar-free diet can help some....but a anti-fungal or antibiotic should clear things up faster.

Have you considered a gluten intolerance? Candida and gluten intolerance seem to go hand in hand.

Here's a new link to a fun Yeast Infection Website w/lots of home remedy stuff, be warned it's blunt and to the point but it's informative.

Awesome! That was funny and informative. Oh and I'm apparently not a ceoliac.(just from a blood test).

Glad you liked that website...:D it is funny.

By the way, you don't have to have Celiac disease to be gluten sensitive or have an immune response to gluten. This is a common mistake most doctors who don't understand gluten sensitivity make. Celiac is the end of a spectrum of gluten intolerance. What's the difference?

See this link by Dr. Scott Lewey  who is a Gastroenterologist with Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS). He practices in Colorado Springs.
