If you are bothered by TMI, please skip this post, it's not for you.

You've been warned.........
I have been on a lot of antibiotics lately, 2 bouts of strep throat in 2 weeks, a double surgery, and a slight infection of the incisions a week later.  That's a lot, and all within a month.  I don't know about other people, but I tend to get a yeast infection EVERY time I go on antibiotics.  As you can imagine, this last month has not been fun for a multitude of reasons.  Can you guess where this is going?
A friend of mine is deeply into all natural/herbal remedies.  She hates Dr's and is convinced that everything we need is growing in her garden.  I'm not saying she's wrong, but sometimes it just sounds wrong.  My friend was over the other day and we were chatting.  I tend to have few to none mental filters about my life and over share.  What can I say? It's how I roll. So I told her about my discomfort.  She was quick to offer a solution, and not one I was expecting.  She told me to go out and get Stoneyfield organic yogurt.  I should start eating it right away, and then take some and insert it up my vagina.  SAY WHAT??  I dismissed her idea as crazy.  I only had strawberry flavored and that was going no where but in my mouth.  Well, I finally broke down yesterday and bought some plain yogurt (Stoneyfield) well, with lots of misgivings I took a medical syringe, we'll have to get a new one if my son needs liquid medicine ever again, and filled it with yogurt.  I took it upstairs with me and spent a 1/2 hour talking myself into trying it.
Do I really think it'll work?  Can it hurt me?  What can happen.  Suffice it to say, I did and then went to bed.  It was very soothing immediately.  So far so good.  Well, it's the next day, it's not gone, but it does feel better, so I'll try it again tonight, I'll let you know if it works.  However, there is a certain side effect that is a little disconcerting at first, every time I have to pee, all I can smell is yogurt.  Now I want to giggle (and get hungry) every time I have to go to the bathroom.  Let's see how long this lasts.......... till next time stock up on the yogurt. ;-)


  1. Funny thing: A MALE RA of mine just informed me of this technique the other day- May 3rd to be exact. Don't ask how it even came up, because I don't remember, and normally I don't have conversations about this sort of thing with students, well, at least MALE students. I tend to be more open with the female students I work with. Anyhow... I was impressed with his knowledge and if I am struck with the "opportunity" to try this remedy, I might just have to give it a whirl. HA! Love you Em! :)

  2. It's a strange experience, and I have to say, I ate strawberry yogurt, and had to get plain for the other orifice, it was the only way I could bring myself to try.
