So being pregnant comes with various issues and discomforts, one of them being itchiness and pH problems down south of the border. So when I felt a yeast infection starting about month ago I immediately talked to my midwife about a natural way to solve this issue quickly and with out the typical, and might I add expensive, OTC treatments.
So step 1 was to use a clove of peeled garlic inserted into the vagina over night at the first sign of discomfort. For those of us who have regular yeast infections we know that tingle that is so alarming!
Magic! Two nights of garlic treatment and eating yogurt to get some of that ever so important pro biotic, problem gone!
Step 2, balancing my pH levels. I find that I am generally slightly itchy during this pregnancy, so I started to use a apple cider vinegar rinse. A couple cap fulls into a cup full of water, rinsing those lady parts morning and night. I found this to be especially helpful after intimate times.
I highly recommend using this rinse (not douche, I do NOT recommend douching!) to help correct the pH balance and perhaps keep yeast infections at bay.
Its worked for me!!!
