Nine tips to get rid of yeast infections forever

An estimated 75% of women deal with burning sensations, unpleasant smells, and weird-looking discharge at least once, if not more, a year. Yet most solutions only focus on treating the symptoms. Learn how to prevent yeast infections from happening in the first place.

Help - yeast infections!

Don’t treat the symptoms – prevent the problem!

If you’re a woman, you’ve probably had a vaginal yeast infection at least once. So, what did you do? You went with the prescribed treatment and stocked yourself up with expensive antibacterial soaps. It was uncomfortable, itchy and awkward, but eventually, you got over it. But then it happened the second, third and fourth time...

That’s when you realised that “treating the symptoms” wouldn’t get you anywhere. So, you wondered – was there a way to stop yeast infections once and for all? The answer is yes!

Nine tactics to prevent vaginal yeast infections

1. Limit sugar intake

Vaginal infections are usually caused by the fungus called Candida, which thrives on sugar but hates anti-inflammatory, acidic and fermented foods. Thus, you can inhibit its growth by eating a healthy diet full of probiotics.

2. Stay away from stress

We know that’s easier said than done. Still, know that stress significantly weakens your immune system and disrupts your hormonal balance, which can lead to the overgrowth of harmful bacteria.

3. Switch over to cotton underwear

Yeast flourishes in a warm and wet environment, created by unbreathable underwear (or swimsuits). So, opt for cotton lingerie instead of synthetic.

4. Wash your laundry at 60° or 90°

You should always wash your underwear at high degrees to kill any living yeast or bacteria. If you have an active infection, it’s also important to thoroughly clean your towels, bedding and clothes.

5. Don’t use aggressive detergents

It might be tempting to use fragrant laundry detergents and fabric softeners when you’re dealing with unpleasant smells from a vaginal yeast infection, but this could only worsen your troubles.

6. Use pH-friendly soaps

You probably already heard this one, but we can’t state this enough – only use hygienic products that match your natural vaginal pH. Look for soaps with a pH range between 3.8 and 4.5.

7. Take baths without the bubbles

You should also stay away from bubble baths as those soaps can disrupt your vaginal flora. Keep in mind that no cosmetic or hygienic product should ever enter your intimate parts - even accidentally!

8. Avoid lubes with sugars

Some lubricants contain sugars, such as glycerin or sorbitol, to make them more slippery, which may essentially feed vaginal yeast. Silicone-based lubes are a better alternative.

9. Be cautious about your medications

We can’t tell you to toss away your antibiotics or contraceptives, but you should keep in mind that certain medications alter your microbiota and compromise your immune system.

The all-in-one solution that keeps infections at bay 

The list of dos and don’ts might seem long, but there’s one solution that prevents vaginal yeast infections and eases its symptoms at the same time – Vaginal Biotic!

This natural supplement contains a super strong probiotic mix, which safeguards your immune system, rebalances vaginal microbiota, and inhibits the growth of bad bacteria, even after you stop taking the capsules.

Why are probiotics so effective against vaginal yeast infections?

Gut microbiota

First of all, your gut microbiota is the main defence line of your immune system. If you keep your gut resilient, you can better withstand stress, occasional indulgences, and even antibiotic treatments, which are a major cause of those infections.

Moreover, probiotics also strengthen your vaginal microbiota, which prevents bad bacteria from overgrowing every time the balance gets disrupted from the outside. We’re talking about irritating soaps, tight clothes and synthetic underwear. Of course, you should still avoid those things, but at least you won’t get an infection from wearing cute lacy underwear or a swimsuit!

Only a specialised vaginal probiotic can do the trick 

Different probiotic strains offer different health benefits, so to tackle this problem, you’ll have the best results with probiotics that have proven effects on the genital tract.

The superstar probiotic strain in Vaginal Biotic is called Lactobacillus rhamnosus CA15 and has been clinically proven to be especially effective in restoring vaginal balance – in just 10 days! This probiotic strain has also been proven to relieve vaginal discomfort for more than 50*%, helping you to feel better and more social. Moreover, after you stop taking the supplement, the microbiota balance will be maintained for at least 30 days.

You should also keep in mind that probiotics won’t benefit you much if the bacteria can’t survive during storage, transportation or passage through the GI tract. That’s why we pay special attention to the stability and potency (200 billion CFU/g) of our probiotic mix.

On top of 6 probiotic strains, the formula of Vaginal Biotic is also enhanced with prebiotic fibre, zinc, biotin, cherry stems, and oat extract. Together, these ingredients support the health of your whole urogenital system and keep your immune system resilient.

Don’t lose another day to vaginal yeast infections!

Those annoying infections can really knock down your confidence, ruin cuddles with your loved ones, and force you to cancel fun plans. But you shouldn’t let bad bacteria win. With Vaginal Biotic, you won’t lose a single day (or week) over yeast infections anymore!
