    I've been using it for 3 months or 4 months it is friendly. no problem . I use the liquid not powdered one from whole foods. Kal is the company that makes it. I have been using this because sugar, honey, even the smell of artificial sweet things give me vaginal discharge. Anyone else experience this or heard of something strange like this happening?

      HI! Any sugary things gives me yeast infections that I have trouble getting rid of. Sugar substitutes gives me terrible gas pains and makes me feel barfy. It's difficult to eat anything sweet. Roxie

          Good Morning! Yes I get a thin liquid discharge and it happens pretty quickly after eating sugar. The worst part is I have a terrible time getting rid of yeast infections. Right now my dr. has me taking 10 days worth of Diflucan (one pill a day for 10 days) and using a cream because I have yeast on my skin too! Some days......life can be very difficult! Good luck!
