I used to get yeast infections often when I was on the pill and also immunoduppressed due to meducations. So I've tried everything because I'd rather use natural remedies because I'm not a big fan of medications. I tried yogurt down there not a good idea, made it worst. Acidophilus works. Garlic burns but it kills yeast. So I just take garlic tabs as a supplement now and I haven't had a yeast infection in years. Good luck!

Wow! this makes me think of the sorry ass Tyrese who constantly puts his foot in his mouth about Black women. He's back trying to sell CD's so he comes out with a song called Stay anf his explanation of the song in an interview was, This is for the ladies, i know we may cheat, and yall have to deal with a lot, brothers on the down low and all that but I'm just asking you to "STAY". Don't give up on us, we love you? Really? and then he put his foot in his mouth by saying that Yall ( Black women) are so busy being independant that yall are going to independant yourself lonely. And we are supposed to but this song? He acts as if they are the prize and we should be so lucky to have a cheatin low down dirty disrespectful fool to call our own. UGH!! Everytime it comes on I turn it off and to my knowledge it hasn't become a hit. So ther is Black girl power after all!!!

Chris, you are soooo right. I just wonder why do they care. These people really take it personally. i have friends Black women with this mentallity. One girl's night we had a discussion because I was on my soap box about all of us being successful beautiful Black women who are single and started talking about a lot of the things i've learned through your blog etc. and the coversation got heated, not only by them but by me as well. Because One said she wants to preserve the Black family! and another said that Black women are the least desirable women in the world. i could not believe that was coming out of their mouths. They were adamant and very comfortable waiting for their Black man to drop out of the sky all chocolaty and glistening! LOL so I really got controversial and asked what Black family? does it even exist anymore, Everybody has babies all over the place, noones trying to settle down and get married. your living in a fantasy land. Needless to say after I finished everyone was quiet. LOL They probably thought I was off my rocker. But it frustrated me to here these highly intelligent women belittle themselves and willing to sit by and watch their lives pass them by for the sake of saving the race. give me a break! Where does that come from? I even gave them some info to research themselves.

Ok I was appalled to say the least! And to have this type of bafoonery going on in of all things Black History month! That's a clear example of the division within the Black community. I know that people think this stuff doesn't really happen but it actually does happens within Black families and to have some promotor have the Balls to have a party and call it the battle of the complexions is insane!!!

I totally agree Chris . I saw Tge movie Friday $10.50 ! $8.00 in Cali? Lol! Anyway it was wonderful. I felt so good after watching the movie and very proud to be an American. It was refreshing not to see bafoonery for once. And as far as the love story with the Itsliab women, people need to get over themselves , it's a very real occurance when men are stationed in another country, they date the women their. Do you think the movie would have been realistic if they had a black women anywhere in there . They didn't want the black men there. People done times just need to fuss about something . I highly recomend it. Wonderful video of your day, it's good that you have one , My father passed on November and we only have pictures .

I just want to thank you for your story and allowing us to see that interracial relationships with Black women can and do exist. You are helping so many of us move on to love, family and companionship. Thank you for all that you do.

WOW! This was great and also a very good way to explain this disorder. I am a Registered Nurse and Health and wellness coach and have seen this disoorder first hand and it can be debilitating. The fact that you don't "look sick" really affects peoples perceptions. Mental illness is still such a hush hush subject although it is starting to come to the fore front. I'm glad that you had the courage to speak about it and say it out loud!!!! Because so many people are suffering insilence and so many family tradgedies may be avoided because of the dialogue. Kudos to you!!

I agree with this Chris. It's rather unfortunate that the BC comunity accepts mediocrity as the norm. Striving for excellence in some comu nities is a very unpopular event , almost frowned upon and collecting a check or now a card is some how ok. I had to use public assistance food stamps (independance card) to be exact when I was in Nursing school and had spinal surgery. For me it was a very humbling but necessary experience that I will never forget , nor will I ever like to be in that place again. It was temporary period.

Hi five Abiola! I'm so glad that you have put it out there for the ladies to see and learn. I learned to take charge of what I like and how I like it. I know what works for me and am not ashamed to teach it to that special someone. It's great that we have this avenue because everyone isn't comfortable. Like I said before I bought my Mom and my little sister one to broaden their horizon so to speak . In my inner circle with my girls we make recommendations on what's hot and what's not and why. Lol! TMI? I think not .. Good for you and good for the ladies.

Well everyone can say, "It's only hair"., and I kinda felt that way after having brain surgery and having my head shaved totally bald. I was happy to still be here.... But your hair is your crowning glory, I feel really good when my hair looks and fels good. I went through a process , wigs first didn't like them much and then I started to embrace my natural hair and learn what to do and how to do it. I can say men constantly put there hands in my hair and I don't have that much of it. I mean strange men or someone who's just trying to laugh or hug, will inevitably touch my hair. Don't know if they want to see what it feels like or what. So I do think they pay attention to hair. I have recieved compliments on my hair even when I wasn't in love with it yet.

@Christelyn @ltd139 I agree with the idea that teaching our daughters about pleasuring themselves could possibly save them from giving their sexuality away to someone who doesn't deserve it. It's understood and accepted that young boys will masturbate and its ok. I think we should empower our young girls sexually and let them know that it's ok and it's natural. I even bought my Mom a vibrator which her generation would never speak about such things and she loves that my friends are so open about it, Not sure if she used it (TMI)! LOL! But she's not a prude and deserves pleasure as well. I say we women need to take charge of it and I agree there's nothing like a real man... but we have something to take the edge off, so to speak.

WoW! This Darnell has literally made me sick to my stomach. What's funny is that he isn't a minority in his thoughts when it comes to how Black men feel about Black women waking up and realizing that they too have options. It make them angry and now we get the charge of desicrating the race. Get a Life! I say who really cares what they think. i just love the fact that the tide is changing and everyone is feeling it. Many of the beautiful, professional, honest and loyal black ladies are going for the relationships and love that they want and derserve. Woo Hooo!!!

I am so sick of this argument. Apologize?!! Whatever. When is everyone going to allow Black men to stand up and be real men. I actually have a couple of female aquaintences who have these views and I have to not so gingerly express the fact that the Black women have been holding it down and taking up the slack from slavery times untill 2011. I mean when are the men supposed to step up? I guess step up on our backs is supposed to be the norm! I don't think so! Most Black men are cottled and babied and thats why they are worthless for most women. What ever happened to the man being the provider, the head of house hold and building a family? If the Black women can overcome her adversities , get an education, and successfully take care of her family, Why the hell can't these babyfied black men step up and do the same. I'm not talking about every Black but .. I'm talking about the countless Black men the author is referring to. I am so sick of everyone blaming the Black women for everything when most Black women are out here making lemonade out of bitter sour ass lemons! Apologize for what?!!

I agree with Armondo, New York is there own litlle melting pot. i have close friend whose from New York. She's AA , she has neighbors who are uerto Rican, Honduran, and white who all were raised as if they were family. They don't seem to see color there. But here in Maryland I have another friend who sees hispanics as something other than Black and not connected to the same culture. I found that very interesting. It depends on where your at and their perception of the area I guess.

What's funny is that with all the recent attention everyone is jumping on the bandwagon. I was out with my girl's at a sports bar and this guy who was trying to talk to at least two of my girlfriends out of the blue says, "would you date a white guy?" Needless to say i said a proud yes! and my girlfriends were like please don't start this converstion with her. he was taken aback and then he says well I like asian. I said good for you we all have an array of options in the love department. But I thought where in the world did that come from? at a sports bar when the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing Sunday night football?!!! It was right after the Anderson Cooper show which is mainstream and must have awaken something inside of him. Now what he didn't realize even before he tried to talk to two of my girlfriends or made his asian declaration ... he had nothin comin from this lady... But it's funny how he( who thinks he can have any one of the fabulous women at the bar) is disturbed that just one of us would date a white man. The nerve!!
