    It is very common for IUD users to get yeast infections. Have you asked your ob/gyn about anti-fungal creams? Have you considered male contraception as an option?
    Yogurt with active culture can help acidify & reduce the risk of fungal infections.
    Use cotton lingerie, keep the area dry & also cleaning after intercourse helps reduce the occurrence.
    Cranberry juice is mostly suggested for bladder infections - that too it depends on which organism is more prevalent in the culture - because some are acid loving bacteria while others aren't.
    Hope this info helps.

    Probiotics are a popular natural remedy for yeast infection. They are live microbial organisms that are naturally present in the digestive tract and vagina. Probiotics, sometimes referred to as "friendly" bacteria, suppress the growth of potentially harmful organisms such as Candida, which is why probiotic supplements have been explored as a natural remedy for yeast infection.

    The type of probiotic being studied for yeast infections is Lactobacillus, especially Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1, and Lactobacillus fermentum RC-14. In some studies, low levels of Lactobacilli in the vagina have been associated with yeast infection.

    Preliminary lab studies have found that Lactobacilli can block the growth of Candida albicans in the vagina. Some clinical trials support these finding, however, the quality of these studies has generally been poor, making it difficult to draw definite conclusions.

    Probiotics are available as oral supplements. Probiotic vaginal supposities are also available, although they are more difficult to find. To learn more about probiotics, read my article on acidophilus and probiotics.
