Preventing A Yeast Infection - One Tip For Millions Of Women

Mar 10, 2008
Preventing a yeast infection is something thousands of women would like to be able to do, and some on a regular basis. For some women they have the same triggers that start the itching in their vagina and they instantly know they have another yeast infection. What these women don't realize that some yeast infections can be prevented especially if they know what is causing them, and they don't think they can do anything about it.

Antibiotics are now the biggest cause of yeast infections, and there's one reason why so many women need antibiotics and that is for a urinary tract infection. Approximately 10 million women in America will go to see their doctor this year with a urinary tract infection. That's 10 million women being prescribed antibiotics to cure their infection. Of those 10 million 30 to 40 percent will need a second prescription because the first one won't cure their UTI. With every course of antibiotics that is taken the chances of a reoccurrence of the infection increase, and so does the chances of being infected with the mutated Candida yeast.

Antibiotics destroy your colony of friendly bacteria that live in and on your body. With your beneficial bacteria destroyed your body is open to any infection, and the most common infection after a course of antibiotics is a yeast infection. Your friendly bacteria are also needed to keep your immune system running at full strength, and the weakening of this natural defence system for your body is another reason why the Candia yeast mutates into an infection causing fungus.

To avoid using antibiotics for a urinary tract infection you can cure your UTI with a home remedy. A home remedy is not only more beneficial for your health but you'll cure yourself in a much faster time.

A home remedy usually works in about 12 hours, and antibiotics will need at least 3 days. If you've used antibiotics a lot in the past then you'll probably need a longer course as the E coli in your body slowly get resistant with every course you take. That includes the times you've taken antibiotics for other infections such as a throat infection. The reason antibiotics need to be taken for so long is they have to kill all of the E coli in your body. Any E coli that are left after you finish your course of treatment will become resistant so if you're re-infected you'll need a stronger course or treatment.

A home remedy for your UTI only needs to flush out the E coli that are infecting your urinary tract. There's no need to kill the E coli living in your bowel as they live there naturally anyway. Because you don't need to kill them you don't need antibiotics.

If you find you suffer from regular urinary tract infections, and then you get a yeast infection after your course of antibiotics you now know that you have an alternative way of curing your UTI. Most women don't realize this, and know that their next UTI means they need to cure a yeast infection straight afterwards.
