Coconut Oil to Cure Yeast Infections?

Has anyone had success with this? I am 42 and have been having recurring yeast infections for the past 6 months, right after my ovulation, no idea why they keep coming back. I'm thinking hormones must be out of whack. I've never had one before, ever, and I take all the usual precautions to prevent them, but they come back month after month at the same time. Thankfully, diflucan seems to cure them as I get them. Anyway, I was wondering about applying coconut oil to my vagina as a cure. I already use it on my vulva to help alleviate the irritation and itch. Thanks!

Hows it going? I think it should help, although tking the coconut oil as food by tsp or adding to food in various ways would also help as it is antifungal, antibacterial.
