Yeast infection during pregnancy


There are several causes of yeast infection including antibiotic use, contraceptive use, impaired immune system and even pregnancy.


The increase of estrogen in the body during pregnancy can dysregulate the ph levels in the vagina and cause an overgrowth of yeast.


While synthetically made antibiotics can cause an overgrowth of candida as they kill both the bad and good bacteria making space for more bad bacteria to grow since there aren't any good bacteria to fight it off. There are, however, natural antibiotics that you can use to help alleviate and diminish the growth of bad bacteria as well as assist to regulate your vaginal ph levels.


Coconut oil, for example, has great antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties which make it perfect for the relief of yeast infections. Below is a recipe for a DIY yeast infection suppository that includes essential oils with similar properties that can help combat an overgrowth of the candida bacteria.





DIY Yeast Infection Natural Relief



Mix the essential oils with a cup of full fat coconut oil until the mixture is well blended. Test it out on the back of your hand to ensure there is not skin sensitivity. Add the mixture to a suppository shaped silicone mold like this one and place it in the freezer.


Pop one out whenever you are ready to use it and insert inside the vagina. It is best done at night time before going to bed so you can stay laying down as the mixture will start to melt and may cause some leakage.


Also, place a towel under yourself in the case that the mixture melts down to avoid staining your bed sheets. Keep using the suppository every night until the infection goes away

I also got my cranberry hibiscus at Echo in Ft. Myers over 13 years ago and I love that they still pop up in my yard. I've been trying to find the exact macros this plant provides to your diet but all I ever come up with is info on either the tea or the flowers. I use the leaves in my salads daily when its growing fresh in my yard. I do prefer the smaller leaves for salad. Any additional info you may have is appreciated!
