Hi again, this is branching off a couple questions down. I bought "Webber's Natural Women's Probiotic with Cranberry Capsules" and have been ingesting them orally and I've inserted them through my vagina twice. During the 2 times, the pills "broke" and the contents were found on my underwear at the end of the day. What should my schedule of taking the pills be like as well as for inserting them into me? I didn't want to take too many at once, not knowing if it was too much for my body to handle. I also drank a big amount of apple cider vinegar, diluted with water which also didn't seem to work. The probiotic pills don't seem to be working and it almost seems that my YI seems to be getting worse, the clitoris is quite swollen and the hood (i think that's the name) is covering the clit. Should I refrain from sex? The last time of sexual intercourse was on 2/21/14 which didnt hurt. I'm wondering how long it will take to see results using the probiotic pill method(s) I'm 18 years old and weigh between 90-100 lbs, I do have a history of iron deficiency. I hope some of that information helps, thank you for your time!

Hi

Yeast is naturally occurring in the vagina, but when it overgrows women can experience symptoms like what you have described. Natural treatments can work well, but in your case this treatment does not seem to be working well enough. There are many over the counter yeast treatments available, so you may want to consider something else. It would also be a good idea to get checked to make sure you are treating yourself for the right problem. You can check out our Clinic Finder if you need help finding a clinic in BC. 

It is hard to tell you what the correct dosage is because this is not a product that we use. Check the package to see if there are instructions on how to use the product.
