Not sure how much of the info is accurate, but yogurt can help maintain a vaginal pH level. All I did was look it up online, as the older woman may have done as well. It's said that the women who ate yogurt with active cultures had a lower pH balance and a lower risk of infections than the women who did not.

So, there you have it.

That's absolutely true #18 but that's because of what people were saying before. Antibiotics wipe out all the bacteria in your body including good bacteria. Some people lack those good bacterial naturally but either way it can cause infection because your PH is off (too basic I believe). Sorry to get disgusting but I'm a vegan and everytime I get sick and need to take antibiotics, I put veganism on a hold and buy some plain Greek yogurt.

Actually, 53, believe it or not, bacteria isn't killed by freezing temperature. It is preserved. That's why when it's cold out, it's easier to get sick. Once the bacteria enters your warm bloodstream, it unfreezes and attacks your weakened immune system.

Yogurt has healthy bacteria. So if she's taking antibiotics, she'd be looking to replace that. What she apparently missed is that frozen yogurt isn't yogurt just frozen. It has a lot more added sugar and a lot fewer good nutrients

#87 it's not an urban legend. They just don't know if eating yogurt can cure a yeast infection but there's no doubt that yogurt can help restore the health of your lady bits. :P


Im not sure if it has anything to do with the infection itself
But Cheese and dairy promote a more basic/alcaline ph environment
-Meats promote a more acidic ph btw
I think most bacteria and yeast prefer the more basic ph?...
The probiotics usually affect the stomach, im not sure how much the vaginal area is affected though o3o

Trivia: You can even slightly influence the gender of your child with your diet
Since male and female spermlings differ in resistance (vaginal fluids act as a weaker spermicide) and speed :D

@41 No, seriously, that was one of my worst days at work (it actually happened a couple weeks ago). The credit card machine went down, rude customers, the inappropriate old lady...

Actually some women insert it into their vagina to help treat the yeast infection faster. No I'm not joking, and I'm sure this isn't something you really wanted to know, but you did ask. ;)

I doubt they suggested ice cream to treat it, but suggesting to eat yogurt is plausible. It helps restore good bacteria that antibiotics (which she's probably using to treat the infection) wipe out.

Not sure why you're being voted down, you're right. Most yogurt does not have LIVE bacterial cultures. My guess is that frozen yogurt had less. And the fact that its full of sugar is even more counter productive. Sugar = infection food.
