Is it appropriate to ask my doctor to prescribe a specific medication?
I always see commercials telling you to “ask your doctor for a free trial of such and such” but to me it seems like doctors would frown on patients diagnosing themselves and asking for certain meds. I want to try a 7 day trial of Provigil because I am always so exhausted, and it’s seriously affecting my life. Do I just ask them flat out for this medication, or how does it work?

You can ask them for it, then they can decide if it will work for you. They won’t give you something that won’t work just because you saw it on tv.

Tell your doctor you saw this medication advertised and does s/he think it would be beneficial for you…that you’d like to try it. Your doctor will then consider your current health, other meds you may be taking, and whether or not such a medication would be appropriate.
Doesn’t hurt to ask, but don’t assume just because you ask that you’ll get an Rx for it.

Are there any home remedies I can make and use to cure a yeast infection?
If you know any good websites where I can ask a doctor “live & free” questions or any other websites that will give me good advice I would appreciate it. Thank you.
I have used the over the counter 7 day vaginal cream, but it’s very uncomfortable and I cannot sleep when I use it.
Also, if you know any good websites where I can ask a doctor “live & free” questions or any other websites that will give me good advice I would appreciate it. Thank you.

There are many remedies that are known, though I wouldn’t recommend them. Yeast infections, if left untreated, can become worse and worse, and can lead to PID, or even infertility. I had a friend who was not a firm believer of OTC medicines, and even presciptions. She douched with apple vinegar and warm water twice a day and it said it worked for her, there are websites that stand for this, and show the recipe, though i wouldn’t do it myself. Good luck though, i know how annoying they are!

I’m going to be very honest and frank about this whole thing. People are gonna chime in and say ‘YUCK, YOU SHOULDN’T DO THAT’ but ignorance is bliss.
I have had YIs and they are not pleasant. Niether is Monistat. I know how you feel.
You can start by taking Lactobacilluc acidophilus. I use Renew Life Probiotics for Vaginal health. Start getting ‘Good Bacteria’ in your system. I take one every day.
In the event that you think you are suffering from a vaginal yeast infection, here is what you do. As soon as you feel itchy, look at the type of discharge in your vagina. You can put a finger in and if you see white dots or clumps on your finger, You most likely have a yeast infection. If the discharge is watery Yellow or green, then it is likely to be a different sort of infection,
Here is the PROTOCOL:
If you first noticed the infection now, and there is only slight irritation and not too much discharge, take a clove of garlic(One section of the bulb). Cut it in half and peel it. Take one half and insert it into your vagina as far as you comfortably can. Do this at bedtime. In the morning remove the clove of garlic, the infection should be gone. you can put it in a layer of gauze and tie it with dental floss if you don’t want it just floating around in there. let the floss hang out as a tampon would.
If the infection has been there for a few days and there is a moderate amount of irritation and discharge, repeat the above instructions for one or two or three nights.
The reason that I instruct people to insert it at night, is that as soon as you insert it, you will get the taste of garlic in your mouth.
I think this would bother most people when they are awake, but it is not a bother when one is sleeping.
If the infection is very slight , an uncut clove of garlic may be enough to cure you . The dose of garlic depends on how much of the inside of the clove is exposed to the yeast.
Most use two drops of Oil of Oregano under the tongue three times a day (it is really strong so a water chaser is helpful or it can be put in juice).
on occasion or right after your period has ended when you are most likely to develop an infection you can take an acidophilus capsule open it and pour contents into a cup of distilled water along with 2 tablespoons of yogurt stir and use as a douche.

When you come down with a yeast infection, the first thing to do is see a doctor immediately. When treated early on, a yeast infection can be dealt with quickly and with relatively few complications. The treatments tend to be simple and work in a short period of time. Here are a few examples of common yeast infection treatments.
One of the most common of all treatments for yeast infection are antibiotics. The actual type of antibiotics used will depend on the location of the infection, and how progressed the situation happens to be. Oral antibiotics are used when the infection is relatively minor and can be treated on an outpatient basis. However, intravenous drugs may be required if the situation is serious enough to merit remaining in a hospital for several days.
Along with oral medications, there are also some other treatments that can be used effectively in the event of a yeast infection in the vaginal or anal areas. These include medicated suppositories and douches that can help to wash out any discharge as well as provide topical medication to the surface layer of the infection. Depending on the severity of the infection, these types of yeast infection treatments may be teamed with an oral medication to promote healing from two different approaches.
