Who Would have Thunk It?

Too bad I love garlic but in this case I may have to pass....

Garlic for the Treatment of Yeast Infection
Method
Remove the skin from a clove of garlic and place it inside the vagina at bedtime, then remove in the morning. To make removal easier, sew a thread into the clove before insertion. For a higher “dosage,” expose more of the inside of the clove by cutting one or more small slits in the side. You may have to experiment to see what level of treatment you need. This may be repeated for multiple nights, but if the infection persists you may want to move to commercial treatments. This treatment works best if the infection is caught early.
Why It Works
Garlic is an antifungal, and kills yeast.

Precautions
Garlic can irritate the soft tissues inside the vagina, particularly if slits are cut in the clove. You will notice a garlic taste in your mouth while the garlic is inserted – this is not harmful, just a minor annoyance.

Side Note:
You don’t have to worry about the garlic getting lost up there. If you can’t find it, just circle the vagina with your finger to locate it, or try to bear down like you are having a bowel movement. If all else fails, it will eventually come on out

based on recommendations and following it myself, i found that plain yogurt (eating it -- though some recommend doing something similar to that garlic ) if eaten at least every few days is a great way to prevent yeast infections...
