I have tried about everything to get rid of yeast infections and have had interstitial cystitis with it. I am going to try to eat more yogurt as you suggested (I try to have at least one per day). Wouldn't you agree that yeast infections along with interstitial cystitis (which is an irritable blader) would feel handicapping. It does when I am experiencing an infection and flare up of symptoms. I have had a difficult time convincing people this. At work they have questioned me about being handicapped and I do feel handicapped when I have a flare of the above. I try to stay on a good diet also. I am also peri-menopausal and I don't know how much that helps. Please reply. Thanks.Susan Thanks Again. Good luck.
