How to treat it: Consuming probiotics while you are taking an antibiotic or after finishing antibiotics can help restore the beneficial bacteria that help keep yeast infections away. The probiotic strain lactobacillus, in particular, can be especially beneficial in restoring balance in the vagina, says Kecia Gaither, MD, an OB-GYN, and director of perinatal services at NYC Health + Hospitals.

  • Yogurt
  • Fermented foods like kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut, and pickles
  • Miso soup
  • Sourdough bread
