I've been dealing with recurring YI's in the past year or so (something I have never really had - maybe had 2 YI's in my life before this past year) and I've been getting tired of taking Monistat, etc. I've been doing some reading about Garlic having antibacterial/anti-fungal abilities. Knowing that you've been dealing a lot with infections and then their resulting YI's after taking antibiotics, I wondered if perhaps you could talk to your doctor about taking garlic (either eating a clove a day or finding a no-odor supplement - it was recommended that you get an enteric coated supplement)? I wonder if that would stave off any infections and help you avoid needing antibiotics and then YI treatments and stop that cycle? Just was thinking about you with regard to that. Not sure whether it would be compatible with your upcoming FET cycle, but maybe your doctor could let you know if that would be something safe to even try at this point?

Sorry, I have been absent from the board and didn't see this until this morning. I haven't felt very cheery about TTC lately.

I love to cook w/ garlic and I can definitely take a supplement. Thanks! I'll try it.

I know how you feel about not being too cheery about TTC - been feeling that way recently, too. I'm not always here everyday, either, so that's fine. :) I just was hoping you'd get to the board at some point and read it. :)
