Is the Pill to Blame for Your Yeast Infection?

The pill has really helped us in a number of different ways and for some of us, it gives us a freedom that we did not have before. Unfortunately, it is still a pharmaceutical method of controlling something that is natural within our bodies. It may also be to blame for a lot of problems in our bodies, including yeast infections. Here is a little bit about how birth control can affect your body and whether it is to blame for the yeast infections that you have been experiencing. You might find this to be rather eye-opening.

Although the pill does make it convenient for us to live our lives as we like, it may actually be causing a problem because of reducing our immunity to a certain extent. Did you know that antibiotics, when they are taken for an extended period of time typically leave an individual unable to fight off a yeast infection? The reason why that is the case is because antibiotics are rather non-discriminate whenever they are destroying bacteria in our body. Along with the bad bacteria that is causing problems for us, they will destroy the good bacteria that fights off harmful invaders to our body, such as yeast. The birth control pill does something similar.

Although the pill does not kill bacteria in our body, it may reduce it to a certain extent and lower our ability to fight off everything from colds to yeast spores. That is why many people who start taking the pill immediately start getting yeast infections as a result. Because the pill serves such a useful purpose for many of us, it is almost something that we tend to put up with, even though it would be nice not to have it at all.

If you must take the pill and you are suffering from yeast infections as a result, you should try to cure the problem naturally instead of running out to the drug store and buying a cream. Simply keeping your body in the best shape possible, eating the right foods and getting exercise on a daily basis is going to help you in this area. You should also be eating yogurt every day as it helps to promote the growth of healthy bacteria in our bodies. Apple cider vinegar will do the same thing and a clove of garlic on a daily basis helps as well. All of these things add up to improving your overall health and helping you to avoid yeast infections.

Homeopathic yeast infection pills have yeast in them? How does that work?

I actually am pretty sure I have bacterial vaginosis, but I got Nature's Cure homeopathic yeast control pills because they have yeast in them, which I figured would help. but it got me wondering... how in the heck is it supposed to work for a yeast infection??? I've seen other brands of remedies labeled "homeopathic" with candida yeast as a main ingredient, as well, so it's not just Nature's Cure being weird.

Homeopathy is based on the idea of curing illnesses etc. by taking what you are actually trying to cure ( a bit like the way vaccines work ). What you need to take is a probiotic with acidophilus and similar organisms. They are brilliant at preventing yeast infections if you are on antibiotics.
I don't know how effective homeopatic remedies are for yeast infections. I know they can be quite effective for some problems but it always sounds weird to me the way they are supposed to work.

Thanks! Although some of the other answers went into more detail and answered other, related questions, this most clearly answered the question I asked.

  • First of all, you should get a proper diagnosis to see if what you have going on is bacterial or fungal in origin. Bacterial vaginosis is caused by bacteria and a "yeast infection" is caused by an overgrowth of candida.

    You will not get much relief from the homeopathic pills, unfortunately. You can put two to three drops of tea tree oil into a teaspoon of olive oil or almond oil or put two drops of tea tree oil onto a tampon instead. Tea tree oil is very effective and should help you start feeling better quickly. You can also take probiotic capsules with acidopholus - one capsule three times a day.

  • Some homeopathic remedies contain trace amounts of whatever agent is causing the condition. The materials are diluted in such a way that the body can recognize and defend against it to encourage immunity, kind of like a vaccine.

    Homeopathic remedies rarely have negative side effects, and some people swear by them, so I would say give it a try. If you are not against taking other medications, there are a ton of things you can buy at the drugstore for a yeast infection but a doctor could best diagnose and recommend something to help treat it.

    Good luck!

  • It doesn't have yeast in it.

    I just looked up that product online and apparently the yeast is diluted at 30 x. Do you know what that means? It means 1 part ‘ingredient’ to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,00… water!* It says the same for all the other ingredients. In other words, you've bought a pack of sugar pills with nothing in them.

    Homeopathy is based on the nonsensical idea that 'like cures like', which is why yeast is an ingredient but the other principal is that diluting a substance makes it more 'potent' - the exact opposite of what the laws of physics tell us and what we know to be true from everyday experience.

    Homeopathy sometimes work as a placebo for placebo-responsive conditions. More often, ailments get better of their own accord (regression to mean) and people attribute their recovery to the homeopathic remedy they were taking.

    The claim frequently made that homeopathic remedies work by 'stimulating the body's innate healing powers', etc is simply not true.

    Sorry, but you've wasted your money.

    *that should be 30 zeros

  • I agree with the ND. Without proper diagnosis, you're basically shooting in the dark at the proper remedy. You can read some of this info to see if your symptoms are more like a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis or not. Their symptoms sometimes are very similar, and the only way to tell the difference is by getting a culture taken.…

  • I hear the best cure is putting plain yogurt down there because of the bacteria it contains. When I get yeast infections I eat yogurt, drink cranberry juice and take AZO
