Yeast Infection, Period: Tampons or Menstrual Cup?
I posted about a week ago that I had a yeast infection. Thanks to your lovely answers, I've been treating it and things have been okay. The antifungal cream/acidopholus pills/eating yogurt calmed things down, but it's still lingering, and as I've run out of cream and pills, it is starting to worsen again. Today, I woke with my period. I'm not worried about yeast contaminating my cup, since I know how to properly clean it after to rid of all ze yeasts, but I just don't know which would be the best to use for my period. I don't have any pads, just fyi. Tampons, or my cup? I basically am just asking which you think would be best comfort wise, and for trying to keep away the yeasties. How should I continue treating the yeast? The past few days I've been lathering on yogurt at night, which has been very soothing. Is this going to create a huge mess of blood and yeast and yogurt? Argh.
