They aren't fun.
I've recently just had my 2nd one. My first was when I was pregnant with my daughter almost 8 years ago (I've had 2 pregnancies since then, so have been fortunate).
But this one was relentless and would not go away. I tried over the counter creams and it would clear up, and then come right back. So I figured I'd stick with my 3 most favorite natural ingredients in my house, ones I KNOW have antibacterial and antifungal properties. Wanted to give it a try and what do you know, after just 2 treatments the infection was gone for good, and hasn't come back!
1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
5-6 drops Tea Tree Oil
5-6 drops Lavender Oil
These are just the brands I used, there are a million brands to choose from!
Grab 1tsp coconut oil and put into a small container, add your drops of oils and stir it around. Make sure all oil is on your spoon for easier removal later. Place in the fridge or freezer for a couple minutes until it hardens again.
Then VERY QUICKLY, pull it out of the fridge/freezer, scoop the mixture off the spoon and place inside the vagina. It will be cold and will feel amazing and cure the itch almost immediately. Use a cloth pad (these oils are unlikely to stain) or toilet paper to absorb the oil that will leak out for the next couple of hours.
Here's how it looks when solid
I did it once mid afternoon and again before bed and by the time I woke up I was itch free and the infection was totally gone! I then did one more treatment in the morning just to ensure it was gone.
So if you're a frequent sufferer, bookmark this for the next time you have an infection!! All of these ingredients are easy to find and easily accessible.
