Can you treat a yeast infection while on your period? It is possible to treat a yeast infection during menstruation. However, we believe a more optimal time to address a vaginal yeast infection is before your period during the proliferative phase, which is when the lining of the endometrium begins to build up. Treating from ovulation through to the beginning of your period might be a more effective approach.
In our book, Candida Crusher, Chapter 5 details a unique two-step treatment strategy for chronic vaginal yeast infections. Leading up to the menstrual cycle is an ideal time to utilize an antifungal or “kill” treatment. Following the period is suitable for a restorative or “building up” treatment. By following this approach and doing three to four treatments consecutively over three to four months, many individuals have noted significant improvements.
While some choose to treat during their period, we suggest considering treatment during the pre-menstrual cycle and after, rather than during the actual bleeding phase. Nevertheless, it’s a personal decision, and individuals can choose the method that feels right for them, including douching protocols.
We understand the importance of this topic, and that’s why we are committed to sharing more content on chronic vaginal treatments, drawing from the extensive information present in our book, especially in Chapter 5, which covers various aspects of chronic vaginal yeast infection treatments.
