Part of my discouragement is that I haven't ovulated this month (getting ready to try to conceive in a few months) and I feel like my hormones are off. I was reading last night that adding some more starchy carbs back in might help, even white rice. I saw a naturopath a week ago who gave me a Rx for Nystatin to take for 3 weeks and I just got that filled this morning. I wasn't sure if I was going to take it but now with the infection thing I figured this might kill two birds with one stone. He is big on the whole Candida thing even though the blood test they did didn't show gross overgrowth of it.
Could the infection just be a fluke or is it always diet related? I want to bump up my carb intake if it being lowered is what is throwing my hormones off. I haven't tried to lower the carbs, it's probably just happened.

After a lot of googling, I decided not to treat mine, except for a few natural remedies I tried, and then it cleared up when my period came, which I also had read would happen. Mine was mild though. If it was really bad, I would have gone to the drug store for something.

I wouldn't say getting a yeast infection while on the whole30 is "normal" but there is something to be said about the Candida flaring up if you tend to yo-yo with your food selection. I would limit fruit and high starch consumption until it clears up. Then moderate intake from there. Start small, 1 to 2 servings a day.

You can always eat some probiotics and sauerkraut to work on your digestion. Just my $.02. Good luck!

I don't know if diet really matter or not, but I've noticed is that yeast infection goes away after you stop to use soap, or regular shower gel, use only intimate shower gels that are meant for that area only. Aloe vera is good natural antibacterial, here is the article about aloe vera for fungus candida. Scented pads can also cause yeast infection so is better not to use them.
