Know Your Body, Address Your Health

This post has been sponsored by MONISTAT®. All thoughts and opinions are, as always, 100% my own.

I’m a 42 year old woman. Not exactly old, but not exactly a child anymore. With that age comes knowing my body better and better.

Our bodies go through so many changes throughout our lives, but one thing that should remain at the forefront is being familiar with our bodies! The better we know ourselves, the easier it is to recognize when something is not right, like a yeast infection, and correct it ASAP.

Let’s talk about some common causes of yeast infections:

  • antibiotics
  • pregnancy
  • uncontrolled diabetes
  • weak immune system
  • lots of sugar
  • hormonal imbalance near your period
  • stress
  • not enough sleep

For the last 7 weeks I have been playing nurse to my husband as he recovers from surgery. While he is doing so much better, I have notices a major lack of sleep coupled with some new stress. This creates a not so fun environment in my body.

Luckily, MONISTAT(r) is available at drugstores nationwide! And it is the go-to for when a yeast infection strikes! Did you know MONISTAT® is the #1 doctor recommended OTC brand with a long-term record of success — it has been in use for the treatment of vaginal yeast infections for over 40 years.

For that reason when I start feeling those all too familiar feelings of a yeast infection, I always turn to MONISTAT(r).

  • From itching to burning to abnormal discharge, when the common signs of a yeast infection pop up, MONISTAT® offers a variety of products to cure the uncomfortable (but very common!) issue.
  • MONISTAT® products are available in a variety of treatment dosage strengths (1 day, 3 days or 7 days) and forms, including Ovule®, cream or suppositories, to meet specific needs.
  • MONISTAT® relieves symptoms four times faster and works on more strains of yeast than the leading prescription and results in less drug resistance and fewer drug interactions than the leading prescription pill.

Be sure to visit the MONISTAT website for more information on all their products.
