Frozen Yogourt Tampons
… all this scratchin’ is makin’ me itch

So about a month or so ago I got that itchy feeling “down there”.

What's that? You'd like to go for dinner, handsome man? Sorry, but I have to stay home and scratch at myself.

O.K. …. I assume after that first sentence, it’s just us girls here now, so I can be frank.

I was pretty sure it wasn’t a mosquito bite and almost positive I threw my poison ivy underwear out, so it couldn’t be that.  This was looking more and more like a yeast infection.  I hadn’t had one in several years, but it’s kind of like riding a bike.  You don’t forget it and it can give you a funny feeling down in your nether regions.

It wasn’t what you could describe as “raging”.  I certainly didn’t have to sequester myself inside the house so I could scratch between my legs with a bottle brush, but it was definitely something that would need taking care of.

So … as I am want to do, I headed to the trusty (pfttt) Internet to see if there was some sort of home cure.  There were a bunch of suspect cures on there, suggested by obvious whack jobs, but there were also a few actual possibilities.

One of which was the frozen yogourt tampon.  Hmm .. sounds kind of plausible.  The more I thought about it, there was no way that perfectly reasonable solution was suggested by a whack job. I was gonna try it!

Basically what you do is take a plastic tampon, (remove the actual tampon) fill it with plain yogourt, freeze it, then shove it up your hoo-hoo.  The natural bacterial cultures, plunged deeply into your inner womanness then go to work like little vagina chimney sweepers, getting rid of the bad bacteria and building up the good.  Check out the video to see how it all turned out!  Yes, I said it; there’s a video.

Don’t worry … it’s safe for kids and the office. As far as I remember anyway … don’t quote me on that.

… all this scratchin’ is makin’ me itch

  1. Kathy Jones says:

    I heard of the “yogurt tampon” back in the 70′s, but never a “frozen” one. Keep us posted – or maybe not. :)

    • Karen says:

      hah! No, I think that’s the beginning and the end of my yeast infection posts. Thought it was important to do though cause … I mean … who HASN’T this happened to at one point?

  2. Jenn A says:

    I once was driving home from the eye doctor – where I’d had my eyes dilated – and got that “oh no” feeling. Fast forward to me at the drug store, blinded by the bright lights, desperately trying not to buy fake nails for each of self-scratching.

    And yes, I agree that yogurt works. I laughed my head off at the frozen yogurt (must be for the ragers) and my husband looked over and said, “I don’t want to know.”

  3. I haven’t watched the video yet but I assume this is for plain unsweetened yogurt…not the chunky kind with peices of strawberry?

  4. lara says:

    … with a bottle brush … spewed Popsicle juice on that one. still having a hard time catching my breath.

    lara

  5. susan says:

    total genius … so much better than trying to slap dash the chilled goopy stuff on, knowing that 2/3rds will puddle off in minutes. thanks for sharing!

  6. Liz says:

    Haaaaaaaaaaa. I can’t admit to finding this post useful without admitting i have a yeast infection.

  7. Debbie Doodles says:

    That absolutely makes good sense! Wish I had heard about this that time I had to be sequestered! Ooo ouch! Thanks for the tip.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Debbie! I thought every one of us had been sequestered at one time, but I got an email from a friend of mine today (after seeing this post) and she admitted to NEVER having had a yeast infection. She also admitted to being part man. It was quite an email.

  8. amy says:

    omg – thank you for the morning hysteria of laughter with your post and youtube. i am now more informed.take *THAT* CNN!!

  9. Nicole says:

    laa laa laa still ignoring the entire concept of putting frozen anything in my vajayjay…but I ran across something, and given our mutual love of dollar stores, I had to share. Weddings at the 99 cent store! http://tackyweddings.com/2009/09/14/nine-couples-wed-at-99-cents-only-store-on-9-9-09-for-99-cents/

  10. Langela says:

    My mother told me about the yogurt thing (not the frozen kind). One thing to check for is the freshest yogurt that you can get so that the active enzymes?/cultures/whatever that do the work are still living. I have yet to try it myself, though. Thanks for trying this for us. The next question is, will you do it again the next time you get the itch?

  11. binder says:

    been there done that… frozen yogourt and all, btw Ikea has a perfectly shaped ice cube tray for such purpose…

    ps. haven’t laughed this hard reading and watching your post since watching Wipeout.

  12. Susan Margaret says:

    Wow~! Hysterical yet practical.
    For someone with a bajeenie, (as my daughter used to call it), you sure have the balls to put this out there. ;)

  13. Joni N. says:

    I’ve heard about the yogurt thing before but haven’t attempted it.

    Two suggestions:

    1) To get the yogurt in the empty tube use a pastry bag and tip to squirt it in;

    2) Insert yogurt before bed that way you’re lying down and they’ll most likely be less oozing.

    -joni

  14. Lynne says:

    OMG,You crack me up!
    Thanks for that giggle this morning, hope you feel better really soon.
    If you haven’t got a pastry bag use a Ziploc sandwich bag with the corner snipped off to fill the tampon.
    Still laughing and grateful that I’m not having to deal with that today.

  15. Langela says:

    I wonder. Did you realize this post would bring out so many comments?

  16. Shauna Wobeser says:

    I LOVE IT!! Maybe not the yogurt idea so much but that you are willing to talk about this stuff!! I love reading your ‘stuff’…it’s REAL!! And just a note to above “binder”…I can just imagine going to IKEA and thinking…’Wow…you know what those ice cube trays would be perfect for!!’ lol You know you have a great site when girls phone each other to say…”Have you read it yet?” lol keep it up!

    • Karen says:

      Thanks Shauna! I appreciate it. Nice comments are better than money any day. Oh who am I kidding. Could you send me some cash?

  17. Jenn C. says:

    Hahaha! You’re fantastic! Sadly, we share the same tendency towards OCD (but I wouldn’t change it for the world). :)

    When I feel the itchin’ and a scratchin’ a comin’ along, I grab some probiotic capsules. Same effect as your yogurt idea, without having to insert anything into your vajayjay.

  18. mick says:

    Note to self…..
    Tell daughter Sam to check out this fantastic idea.
    Phone Betty to tell her that Karen used the hoo-hoo word again.

    • Karen says:

      Note to Micky – Betty’s the one who taught Karen the word hoo-hoo. BAH HAH HAH HAH. No. Um … no she didn’t.

  19. Kate says:

    Whoa! Hilarious but WHOA! I knew I liked you when I read that you let a chipmunk hang out on your shoulder. This, icing on the vag… I mean cake. (this is the line. this is me probably jumping over it with a sparkler in my hand.)

    • Karen says:

      “This is the line. This is me probably jumping over it with a sparkler in my hand.” I am now officially stealing this line. I love this line. It is hilarious.

  20. Lisa says:

    Ditto, Lara. Laughed out loud when I read “scratch between my legs with a bottle brush”!!! Been there…almost. I found out about probiotic capsules long ago, and they’ve saved me from many raging yeasties.

    Karen, I just found your blog yesterday. So glad I was here for this entry! Love your “after” expressions in the video. Gives a whole new spin to “frigid bitch,” doesn’t it? hahaha!

  21. I have one question:

    Doesn’t it just all pour out once it un-freezes?

    Wait another one:

    Isn’t it REEEEEAAAALLLLYYYY cold in your hoo-ha?

  22. sera says:

    Yep! The yogurt totally works – but while initially freezing it sounds like a good idea, cold is just as good. Yep, maxipad, and yep eat some too. And from someone who was plagued by yeast infections and UTI’s I highly recommend that the moment a UTI starts coming on, drink tons of straight unsweetened cranberry juice (or take the supplements)and eat the plain yogurt and then you don’t end up on those pesky antibiotics that destroy all kinds of good things.

  23. Amanda says:

    Yogurt works wonders! But, so does a simple clove of garlic. I know most women are gonna say, “Ew!!!”, but seriously, if you insert a peeled clove of garlic (organic, of course) into your vayayay the itching is relieved at once, and you can even “wear” it while you work/ride a bike/sing songs. I usually leave it in for 8 hours, and the infection is gone. It can be a little challenging pulling the sucker out, but if you’ve ever put in a diaphragm it’s just about the same… Also, what I LOVE about these methods is that the cost is minimal in comparison to the expensive, yucky, chemical creams sold at the drugstore. Karen, you are brilliantly hilarious. Thank you for writing such a fabulous blog :)

    • Robin says:

      Yes, garlic works as well and it’s easier and less messy! In response to Amandas post about it being tricky to remove simply poke a hole in the center of the clove and thread with dental floss. You can make it into a little garlic tampon. I do it at night and remove in the morning. The funny part is you wake-up with garlic breath!

      • Kristy says:

        I am just NOW, TODAY, finding this site and THIS topic… You guys have me literally laughing out loud- so much so that I am reading these aloud to my husband! His reply “I can’t hear about this stuff anymore!” (insert squinty eyes and a sucked-on-something-sour expression) hahahahahahaha!!

  24. Lori says:

    This went PERFECTLY with my evening glass of wine! bwahahahaha! dinner and a show. I loved it. And that, folks, is why you are my ultimate girl crush. hee hee (still laughing and honestly, I’ll bet it does work. hat’s off to ya)

  25. Erica J. says:

    You made my day! I laughed, I cringed, I was glad you said it didn’t need to be frozen. I am so very glad that you are brave enough and smart enough to do all the things you do…and then share.

  26. Alex says:

    The face you make at 2:45 is to die for. I will laugh at that forever.

    • Karen says:

      My grade 4 teacher Miss. Snyder once told me to stop making faces cause one day it’d stay that way. And one boss I had in university (transcribing audio tapes for brain surgeons) demanded none of her workers use facial expressions. Suck on that Miss. Snyder (who I actually loved) and boss whose name I forget!!!

  27. suzanne says:

    Oh wow… I just recently discovered your blog that I loved this post! I am almost excited to get my first yeast infection so I can try it- ha!

    • Karen says:

      Ha is right! Thanks Suzanne. I hope you visit again. Perhaps next week I’ll get a pussy eye. Fingers crossed! :)

      • Langela says:

        A pussy eye? Am I the only one who has no idea what that is?

        • Karen says:

          OH my God. I just realized pussy eye could be read a couple of ways. Um .. I meant an eye filled with puss. Not … the other thing.

          • Langela says:

            Is it sad that an eye filled with puss is actually the better option? Whew! Thanks for clarifying.

          • Lisa says:

            Oh my gosh, I’m being bad and reading this at work and had to stop because I went hysterical at these last few comments. I had to take off my glasses to wipe the tears from my eyes. I just found your blog during my lunch break. You are hysterical!

  28. Noelle says:

    Dear Lovely Blondie, can you please write a blog about controlling the outcome of what my friends and I refer to as the “incontinence laugh”. I mean.. well you know what I mean. Right? Let me know, ’cause if I’m gonna keep reading your damned blog I reeeeally need an answer.
    Love, Feeling a wee bit damp AKA girl with lots of laundry ;)

  29. Cindy says:

    Thank you Karen, for that enlightening information! I find it difficult to accept it from someone I still remember as a wee little girl (it is hardly fair that you look barely any different BTW) with whom I went to elementary school, but …I’ll take it anyway =) I’ll stick to eating 1 or 2 yogourts a day ATM and forcing one down my daughter’s throat while praying it never becomes necessary to attempt any aspects of your adventure. Keep that sense of humour, we all need it!

    • Karen says:

      Cindy? Cindy who? I remember Cindy Wing from elementary. Or there’s Cindy-Cindy from highschool, former manager of Komic Kloz … wow … Or there’s my sister’s friend Cindy. Plus I spent a lot of time watching The Grinch, so there’s Cindy Loo Hoo, which would make perfect sense since it IS a post about the Hoo Hoo. Lemme know!

  30. Jan says:

    Outrageously hysterical…and quite useful. When you wrote about the un-frozen version, it made me think about in-vitro and how they ask the lady to keep her butt in the air for 30 minutes (although I should have written ‘woman’ as I’m not sure one can properly represent ‘lady’ with her butt in the air!). Anyway, not sure if that is even true, but I wonder if it would help the process?

  31. tricia says:

    I’ve done the yogurt thing, (non frozen,) before but have since found something that works even better and isn’t messy. There is a product called Candex, that you can find at most health food stores or online. It works even better than an Rx!

  32. Liz says:

    So my highly consertive friend sent me the frozen tampon story. I laughed until I cried. I’m not sure what I’m laughing more at: the story or that my highly consertive friend sent it to me. But it seems like a great idea! I’ve always heard about eating yogurt to prevent and treat infections. I’ve even heard of putting it directly on your hoo hoo. But as crazy as it sounds, I bet the frozen yogurt tampon feels pretty good on the itchy parts.

    • Karen says:

      I’m shocked a highly conservative friend would even watch/read the frozen yogourt tampon story! That’s funny. I’d like to have seen her doing it. Maybe she’s not quite as conservative as you think!

  33. Jodie says:

    wow. and double wow. just found your blog the other day and ya’ll are funny! Pussy eye, bottle brush, sparklers, incontinence laugh.
    One thought however (to Amanda), would putting garlic “up there” keep vampires away? : )

  34. Renee says:

    I have asthma (and you’re wondering what that has to do with this post…be patient). My male asthma doctor put me on an inhaler to use every day to control my asthma. Being a good patient, I inhaled every day. Twice. After a couple of months on the inhaler, I began to get recurrent yeast infections. I, of course, did not relate this to my lung medicine. Why would I have, right? Anyway, after TWO YEARS of monthly yeast infections, several gyno visits, marriage counseling (need you ask why?) and my children’s college funds spent on Monostat, my mother suggested I “Google” all of my medicines to see if any might cause yeast infections. Wouldn’t you know that my asthma inhaler reported that .02% of their regular users reported an increase in yeast infections. I immediately stopped inhaling, and I have had one yeast infection since (in 6 years). My male asthma doctor (did I mention he was bald with 3 earrings?) was really concerned and didn’t believe the medicine to be the cause of the yeast infections. Now, I’m very conservative (I didn’t even want to tell the male dr that I had yeast infections) and a big rule-follower. But, after two years of suffering I told him in a very strong tone that I’d rather have an asthma attack every day and walk around with an oxygen tank than ever have another yeast infection. I said the only reason Dante didn’t include yeast infections as one of his levels of Hell is that he was a HE and hadn’t had one. My bald, male, 3 earring wearing, asthma doctor found me a new medicine. We’ve had a lovely relationship ever since.

    • Karen says:

      Oh my God that description of your doctor made me laugh. Yup. I can picture him. Took a look at your blog! I’ve been picking up and putting down The Potato Peel Society (sic) for AGES now. I think I will finally actually purchase it and give it a read. Once I finish the rest of my books. I get twitchy if I don’t have a stack of at least 4 ready to go.

  35. monica says:

    Youre amazing! Just getting that oh no feeling this week, think IM starting to get a YI, jut put the yogurt tampon in, oozed all out, will try again tonight. Easting yogurt now. I also heard that tree tee oil suppositories should work too.

  36. Lori says:

    I may have missed this in breezing through the comments, but using the cotton from the tampon, soaking it (?) or scooping a portion of yogurt with it and using it (without the applicator) works well. The liquid causes the tampon to expand slightly, but nothing that prevents it’s use. Then there is nothing to make a return trip – at least right away. ;)-

  37. Pax says:

    Turkey baster. Penis substitute in the baby making department AND yogurt applicator too. And you can get it at the dollar store! Perfection!

  38. Amy Hadley says:

    I started getting these from my birth control pills. Used a turkey baster to try the yogurt experiment. Talk about the need to keep it separate from other kitchen tools.
    I like the garlic tampon idea (complete with dental floss) from other commenters, too. Let us know if you give that one a try!

  39. Amy Hadley says:

    (PS-”…plunged deeply into your inner womanness then go to work like little vagina chimney sweepers” had me giggling rather uncontrollably so that I had to read it to my husband. He knows about the turkey baster… he handled it just fine. He smiled but didn’t giggle.)

  40. Anne says:

    If this works, and I intend to try both methods, then I will owe you a great deal of gratitude! I am a chronic yeast infection sufferer and my doc says its just hereditary or my body! I have spent a small fortune on products and I just found out my trusty “pill” prescription is not longer covered by my benefits bc Canesten made it “over the counter”. I am trying both, not at the same time or we’d have a tzatziki dip down there! So thanks Karen!!!!

    • Fiona says:

      Mmm, tzatziki… wait, NO!

      I was getting recurrent infections at the beginning of this year, so I finally went nuclear: gave up sugar, alcohol and almost all other carbs for a month, ingested/applied yoghurt, garic cloves, clove oil and tea tree oil, and took probiotic pills like it was going out of fashion. Not a PEEP from my Lady since, I’m so proud!

  41. Ellen says:

    Karen, finding you on the web has been the highlight of today. I love the way your mind works and your honesty and humor!
    Look forward to learning more from you!
    (And I guess I’ll keep this vid in mind..jic..?

    =)

    • Karen says:

      Ellen – Thanks! If you liked the yogourt post, you should read the Bladder Infection one! I’m so glad you found me and took the time to comment! ~ karen

  42. Robin says:

    I’m coming here months after the fact but … would the antibiotics have made the difference? Heaven forbid you should be smitten with another yeast infection but what if someone used just the yoghurt without the drugs? Thankfully, I haven’t had one of these for years but it might be good to file this info away somewhere, just in case. :-)

    • Karen says:

      Robin – Antibiotics tend to *give* you a yeast infection. In fact if women get a bladder infection and the Dr. gives them antibiotics they often end up with a yeast infection after because of it. So the antibiotics didn’t help with the yeast infection at all, it was solely the frozen yogourt that cured it. So yes, the frozen yogurt can indeed be used alone. :) ~ karen

  43. Kait says:

    I tried the frozen yogurt method too, so I can tell you that I don’t know how you had such a calm expression on this video after putting one in!

    I’m so glad I was home alone when I did it because my dogs were alarmed to hear me yelping, “WHYYYY,” and then shuffle past them with while mumbling about wearing more than one pad for this. However, I am also glad that home cures like this exist when you can’t use the same things that you would normally due to being pregnant. *sigh* Oh, and I’m also glad to be able to call my best friend and explain to her just why I was insane enough to try this while she tried not to laugh. :)

    Anyways, loved your video (and love the relief I now have!)! :)

  44. RG says:

    I wasn’t brave enough to try it frozen, instead I used a syringe and then a tampon and there was no mess!

    I wanted a non messy way to cure my yeast infection and all of the OTC meds say you can’t use it with a tampon so I figured I’d give it a few days to see what happens.

    I’ve used it for 24 hours, 3 applications and I’m so much better. Unfortunately I let mine get out of hand and it was a raging yeast infection so I think it might take another day or two to clear it up 100% but I’m now a believer

  45. Raine says:

    hahahahah hilarious!!! I’ve never had one touch wood but if I ever do?? sounds…Yummy…LOL

  46. Bobby says:

    This sounds dicey….. Why not just eat the yogourt BEFORE you get the yeast infection and prevent it? And avoid the potential for a raging bacterial infection?

  47. Tara says:

    I have fought these my whole life. There is a LOT more to know about any woman who gets these. We have a few things in common.
    1. We have taken ANY kind of antibiotic in our life and 2. are low in good digestive bacteria and 3. are at a good risk for systemic Candida infection. Most doctors deny Candida, but there is plenty info out there available. Candida can be very very dangerous and sometimes, the only symptoms can be our yeast infections. I had to research on my own when I realized that it was NOT normal to keep getting recurrent yeast infections. It is a symbol of low immunity and imbalance in bacteria that is NOT easily corrected. Antibiotics are horrible for us and the main culprit.

    I bring this up only because I started developing skin conditions out of the blue and my doctor kept trying to give me stuff that was not helping and dismissing my Candida questions. She was trying to bandaid my problem by working on symptoms. Yeast infections are symptoms and ‘curing’ a yeast infection is not curing the underlying issue.

    I was on my own to find out why I was having these issues and at first didn’t even know they could be related. Candida is a strong cancer causer, especially for cervical and girlie cancers. Yeast infections should never be taken lightly, especially if they are recurring. They make the perfect environment.

    Thanks for the post though! Great Post and Hilarious! Women need to know.

  48. Tiffany says:

    Hello,

    I have been suffering from BV for a long time. Been to the doctor a number of times and they all have told me “Its normal. Youre not suppose to be fresh all the time down there” *rolls eyes*…maybe true to a certain point. A real small point might i add. But I just could take their opinion anymore on it and i had to start find out how to cure this naturally. I did!!!! And all it took was a damn Google search for me to find that plain yogurt solves your yeast infection and BV issues. Only two days in and I can tell the difference. I needed to find a way that was not so messy for me to apply the yogurt and I came across your hilarious video!! I dont know about the frozen idea but if my vajayjay could handle coldness then ill be all for it.

    Thanks for the funny tips!

  49. Maggie says:

    So a few years ago I had The Itch. I had previously harnessed the healing powers of yogurt sucessfully applying the external schemer technique. But this was a bad bout. Whilst looking through my kitchen I found an Ikea water bottle ice cubsicle mold… Inspired, I too made a yogurtsicle, thinking the cold could only help as the happy bacteria were placed directly at the source of said raging, blinding discomfort. Hubby, who did not have The Itch and was therefor not blinded, could see the potential flaws with The Plan. Fast forward, I completely related to your experience, and yes, hubby was right (I just don’t see how putting some thing frozen up there will feel good/better-it didn’t, it was blinding in another sort of frozen crotch way). Stick with the schemeer, it works. And, if I may, I have observed that taking cranberry juice when I’m PMS keeps the flora and fauna happy and balanced and all itching at bay, allowing me to take my yogurt orally, which is definitely my preferred method. Plus I know that our bottle brushes are sterile. So that’s a lot of wins. Plus cranberry juice is yummy.

  50. Christine says:

    I got a good ol’ boarding school cure for a yeast infection – it doesn’t hurry it along, but it beats going to some ol’ wrinkled wanker who gets off on giving every young girl a 10 day penicillin shot on her bare bum. Hang nails to brain cancer, didn’t matter.

    ALWAYS use a small amount in a small container and NEVER let any of the liquid touch the bottle you got it from! EVER!

    OK, w/ all the warnings plainly posted, I shall explain.

    Pour a bit of mouthwash into a small dish and have some cotton balls ready. Now I suggest Scope or some form thereof, cuz if you try anything akin to Listerine, they’ll be peeling you off the ceiling after screaming loud enough for the angels to cover their ears!

    TAKE A CLEAN COTTON BALL EVERY TIME. Dip it into the mouthwash and clean yourself down where it itches like an SOB!!! Use as many as you need. There are more than the usual places, you can reach a little up inwards and there’s nooks and crannies too. Make sure you clean them well, the itch likes to gather there. The stinging will have you going “Ohh! Ahh! Damn!” but OMG it makes that pesky itch go away toot sweet! Relief!!! It has the added advantage that it smells much better than you did before use. Good for work, and/or polite company.

    Now, if you don’t want to be doing this for a week and a half, treat the problem w/ either Karen’s method, (never thought of THAT, wouldn’t have worked in boarding school, tho. Too cool…literally!) or an OTC preparation, which of course, back in the 70′s they didn’t make OTC, nor did we have access to it if they did. And it kept us having to show our bum to some kinky wanker who should have been arrested for indecency.

    I know this is “OMG! She just said WHAT???” But it works, it has its advantages while you wait for the now-usable cheaper stuff (7 day vs 3 day) and in this day and age, cost counts. You smell better or at the very least, you don’t have to run around worrying. And it cures the itch like nobody’s business! Ahhhh!

    Yes, I’m crazy…and boarding school didn’t help! HAHAHA! Hope all this makes sense.

    • Jessa says:

      Actually, if you use a clean douche bottle (like summers eve) and put half or third of original listerine and half water, it just feels “cold” down there.

      But, what you have to realize is that all/most mouth washes have sugar in them, which feeds yeast, so this is really not the best idea. I am a diabetic and my Physician Assistant I used to see when my doctor was unavailable suggested this to me, but it never really cleared it all up.

      I am intrigued by the yogurt and wonder if you could not just clean and save a cream dispenser from the likes of a Femstat cream or Monostat Cream inserter (completely cleaned, of course). I have one that came with some AVC cream that you had to refill and reuse each application, so why not clean it and use it with the yogurt.

      Thanks for the laughs, the real stuff is always the funniest!

  51. Jenn says:

    I’m new here but I have to say… i <3 u. That was hilarious and useful.

    • Karen says:

      Thanks Jenn. It really does work! I also have a cure for a bladder infection if you search it on my sidebar. It doesn’t involve such a cold shock. ~ karen

  52. Jeri says:

    I love you, I really do. You are without a doubt my hero. I literally pee’d myself.

  53. Judy says:

    I truly enjoy your post and all the comments! Had a good laugh and got some good info! Thanks for sharing!

  54. Janice says:

    Hydrogen Peroxide works wonders – get one of those empty 30cc syringes (can find at vet suply stores – we use them to give meds to horses orally).

    Suck up the Hydrogen Peroxide & squirt it in….. yes, it will run out.

    H2O2 creates an oxygen-rich environment, where the anaerobic bad bacteria cannot survive.

    One squirt & you’re done!

  55. Jennifer says:

    Thanks Karen! Good info! Entertaining as always! I was drinking my morning kefir while whatching the vid. It was a little weird.

  56. Tigersmom says:

    I can’t believe I hadn’t already watched this! You’re little moan at 22 seconds is hilarious.
    Way to take one (actually two, you superwoman) for the team.

    And you’re ability to provide acurate descriptions without using graphically offensive terminology is quite impressive, too.

    My hat is tipped.

  57. angie says:

    Why can’t I see the video??? The comments are entertaining, but I’m sure the actual video would be better. Is it because I joined the party too late, and now I’m outta luck?

      Hi Angie – I just checked and the video is working fine. On your end you might need to clear your cache. Or if you own a Mac, go to Safari, Preferences, Remove all Website Data. Occasionally I have to do this. It’s a weird thing with You Tube. ~ karen!

    This was awesome.
    I just watched it and it provided some amusement to my uncomfortable situation.
    I just got out of the bathroom from a syringe & kefir, and also a tampoozle (what my sister and I tend to call them) coated in kefir… I’m really hoping to at least ease the horrible feeling, I don’t really want to be squirming and wincing and whining my way through the holiday. hehe.
    Also, I pinned this… no idea if it will get re-pinned but hopefully it will at least get some more viewers :D

    Ok….so I tried the frozen tampon. Its just extreamly, uncomfortably,too cold. I cant hold it in too long. Any suggestions?

    • Karen says:

      LOL. That’s the exact same problem I had. It’s COLD. Your body warms it up fairly quickly, but I think if you can just get a syringe of some sort and shoot some yogourt up there, plus eat a 1/4 – 1/2 a cup during the day that should do the job. Good luck. ~ karen!

    A better cure for a yeast infection is to take a cup of white vinegar and add it to a lukewarm bath which is about half full. Sit in the bath for 15-30 mins and make sure some of the water gets inside you if possible. Twice a day to begin with and dont wash the area with soap afterwards…the smell doesnt last long. You can also soak a tampon in a weak solution of vinegar and water and keep that in for 10 mins or so but the bath works better I think.

    • Karen says:

      HI V. I’m afraid I can’t comment on your cure because I’ve never tried it. I only post things, whether they’re about health, design, DIY, home improvement etc., if I’ve actually tried the method/recipe/craft/project myself. Why is it you think your method is better? I’m just curious, because the method I’ve described not only works, but works with one quick treatment. ~ karen!

    As a former baker’s assistant I can tell V. Ellis than we used to add vinegar to some bread doughs to enhance the action of the yeast and baking soda to kill the yeast. A vinegar douche or bath may help with odor temporarily but I doubt truly that it will get rid of a yeast infection.
