thank you so much for your comments. I actually already do all those things and don't do the ones I shouldn't. I maintain a good diet, stay away from sweats and eat fruits and vegetables not many dairy products other then yogurts but not very often. I am a little obsessed with hygiene. I take showers twice a day and use a fresh towel every time. I wear cotton underwear only and use nothing but water to clean the "area" so I am totally bummed that it doesn't help.. :( I was on a birth control pills but stopped taking them. I haven't taken any antibiotics in years.. so.. why is it still happening so often? What about those pills I wrote about earlier. Is taking one a day will prevent it?
