Last But Not Yeast

May 03, 2018

The first time I heard of a yeast infection was when I went to summer camp when I was twelve. A girl in my cabin admitted to getting a yeast infection from the camp pool, and I was immediately exposed to the stigma surrounding yeast infections. It wasn’t until my junior year in college when I experienced my first yeast infection... Did I say my first? Well, I mean my first five.

The best way I can describe my first yeast infection was the constant itch, burn, and discomfort that I experienced 24/7. It was the type of itch where you wanted to get a miniature round brush and go to town on your Queen V. I couldn’t find any sort of relief whatsoever! I tried creams, pills, suppositories, and eventually antibiotics. Sadly, with the medication, I had been put on for my hormonal acne (babes if you struggle with this I highly recommend Spironolactone), yeast infections basically became a part of my life. If I didn’t have a yeast infection, I was constantly thinking about how to prevent one. The worst part was, every time I got a yeast infection, my body tried its absolute hardest to reject all forms of aid from creams and medications. I was treating my V like crap – she was not happy and neither was I.

I never really knew if other girls my age were experiencing the same things as I was, because no one liked to talk about their V’s, especially when it came to infections. When I discovered Queen V products, I finally felt as if I wasn’t alone in my frustration from my yeast infections. I found a group of women who are not only comfortable talking about the importance of women’s health but are also doing things to better it.

    I just have to say I think it’s beautiful what you guys are doing for people with “Queen V’s” everywhere. I almost feel like crying because I feel like it is FINALLY getting to a point where we can talk about these things and not want to crawl under a rock. It can be so frustrating trying to treat reoccurring yeast infections when you feel like the medicine is doing more harm than good in the long run. I love your natural and sensitive products and I hope more women will drop the stigma around vaginal health. It makes me feel so much better knowing I am not the only person who has reoccurring problems that never seem to go away. I really hope all of these products will work for me, I love supporting a female owned and operated company! Thank you, Queen V! Heres to healthy vaginas!
