I was on the pill for about 2 years and had nearly constant yeast infections, no odor, but plenty of discharge and irritation. They just kept coming back, and the over-the counter stuff only got rid of it temporarily. So I decided to take control by using home remidies so I didn't go broke spending $15 a pop on monistat. I read that a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water as a douche kills yeast, and it worked okay, but I had to douche with the mixture almost every day to keep it away. Then I tried using a few drops of tea tree oil mixed with a little olive oil, then mixed that in a cup of water and douched with it. Boy did that work great! But then I went off the pill and so I don't know if it is the tea tree oil or not taking the pill that has made the infections finally go away. Go online and look for home remidies, I found it quite helpful.
