Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher, with another question I get asked from time to time from my female patients. Can I treat my yeast infection while I’m on my period? You can treat it while you’re on your period, but I think a better time to treat a vaginal yeast infection is before your period in the proliferative phase. This is when the lining of the endometrium is starting to build up. So from ovulation through to period is a better time to treat. And in Chapter 5 of my book, Candida Crusher, you can read my unique twostep treatment for chronic vaginal yeast infection.
In the time building up to the menstrual cycle is a good time to use a kill or antifungal treatment. And in the postperiod time is a good time to do a restorative treatment or a building up treatment. And I guarantee you if you do three or four of these treatments concurrently for three to four months, you’re going to notice a big improvement. So you can treat while you’re on your period and I know some females do treat regardless of whether they’ve got their period or not, they’ll treat. But I believe a better approach is to treat premenstrual cycle and post and not during the actual bleeding phase. But it’s up to you. You can use douching protocols whenever you want.
So, I’m going to do a lot more tutorials regarding chronic vaginal treatments because this is an area I’ve treated many people over an extended period of time. Have a look at my book, Chapter 5, and there is a lot of material there on chronic vaginal yeast infection treatment. So I hope that answers your question. Thank you.
