Yeast Infection...?

So I had my yearly check up last week and they called to tell me everything was normal other than yeast showed up in my pap. They asked if I was having symptoms and I said none at all. So since I know I have yeast growing in my body can it migrate to breast? Do you think I ought to start Silas on some probiotics just in case? I am now eating yogurt like crazy.

Re: Yeast Infection...?

Probiotics are always a good thing. Have you fought yeast in the past? If you have a history I would be more proactive in countering this, if you haven't and aren't a yeasty person, I might just cut sugar and stick to probiotics for you.

I love the name Silas, btw -- we have a Jonas, though, and I didn't like the blend.

I have only ever had 1 iml so I would say I'm not a yeasty person. But I have had a huge sweet tooth lately- probably my issue. I am going to go with garlic and yogurt for me and probiotics for him.

My husband LOVES Silas and I liked it before but I have grown to love it too. Atticus is DS1 so we must be going to the ending s names b/c I also like Hollis.

I would start taking probiotics, eating yogurt and cutting back on sugars, and giving baby probiotics won't hurt as well. I wouldn't bother with any "real" treatment for it, though, if it's not causing troubles for you.
