Yogurt for Yeast Infections

Hi all, this is my first post :)

I'm 90% sure I have a yeast infection, I've had a few in the past but the symptoms always seem to change a little bit. I had some slight itching and mild discomfort prior to wisdom teeth removal and THEN when on a 6-day 3x-a-day round of antibiotics. Initially I thought it was uncomfortable grow-in from my last wax but now with some more symptoms (papercut-like cuts, discomfort during sex) I'm thinking it's a yeast infection (despite half-assedly taking probiotics this last week).

I've been successful with OTC treatments but I despise them and I'm getting concerned that I'll start becoming immune to them and they're just so uncomfortable. I had heard about yogurt in the past and I know there have been posts on here about it in the past (months and months ago) and so I am giving it a try with some Tillamook plain cultured yogurt and a tampon.

My question is what sort of experiences have you all had with treating YIs with yogurt in this manner? I'm also going to start taking the probiotics 3x a day as recommended on the bottle and I'm using tea tree oil for soothing purposes.
