Gabrielle Union tried to cure a yeast infection by putting yogurt up there

Gabrielle Union tried to cure a yeast infection by putting yogurt up there
People Magazine has a new story with alternative medical advice from a celebrity, complete with advice from a gynecologist, that genuinely surprised me. It didn’t faze me that a celebrity was giving homegrown medical advice, that happens all the time. What I found interesting is the fact that the advice was at worst benign and at best could be helpful. I’ve heard before that you can treat a vaginal yeast infection with natural (not flavored!) yogurt, applied internally. I thought that this was one of those home remedies that you shouldn’t try and that could ultimately hurt you. Gabrielle Union said that she did this, she didn’t say whether it worked, and an actual Yale medical school gynecologist whom People consulted confirmed that it’s not a bad treatment but may be ineffective, especially compared to antifungal over the counter treatments. Well damn.

'I ended up in a situation where I had a yeast infection, and I didn't want to go to CVS to buy Monistat,' Union told Unstyled, Refinery 29's fashion podcast. 'I called my girlfriend, who always has an answer for everything, and she was like, 'Go get yogurt and then you're gonna just put the yogurt up your vagina.' '

Union said she picked up some vanilla-flavored yogurt, then got to work applying it'with little success. 'It's not going in, it's just slapped on the outside, which is providing a bit of relief, but I need to get it in there,' she recalled. So she called back her friend, who recommended using a straw from a local fast-food joint as a makeshift applicator.

Union didn't say whether the yogurt worked. So we decided to ask a gynecologist if yogurt really can cure a yeast infection, or at least ease symptoms, such as itching and burning.

While an over-the-counter antifungal cream or prescription oral med are the preferred methods of treatment for a yeast infection, yogurt does seem to offer at least temporary relief, says Mary Jane Minkin, MD, clinical professor in the department of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive sciences at Yale Medical School. 'A yeast infection is an overgrowth of yeast, and the good-guy bacteria in yogurt, the lactobacilli, maintain an acidic environment, which makes it hostile for yeast to grow.'

However, she cautions, the strain of bacteria that's native to the vagina may be different from the strain in your favorite yogurt. If that's the case, the yogurt may not help much after all. Since there's no way to tell which brand is best suited to your body, at least make sure you're buying a yogurt with live cultures, or you won't get any yeast-fighting benefits, says Dr. Minkin. Opt for an unflavored variety too.

Flavored yogurts, especially fruity ones with jellies or jams, can be packed with sugar, and sugar can fuel the growth of vaginal yeast, she adds.

To keep the mess minimal, apply the yogurt internally rather than externally on the vulva. To do so, a makeshift applicator like Union's straw isn't a terrible idea, Dr. Minkin says, 'although it might scratch you, whereas other applicators are smoother.' You can actually purchase vaginal suppository applicators online (like this 15-pack for $12 at Amazon) or at a pharmacy, she says, and simply fill the applicator with yogurt.

If an applicator isn't available, coating your finger with yogurt before inserting it into your vagina works just fine too. You can also dab a little yogurt on a tampon and insert it that way, as Health's medical editor Roshini Raj, MD, has previously recommended.

Your most mess-free option for yeast infection relief might be to regularly eat yogurt. Delivering those lactobacilli to your gut can help ward off future infections, Dr. Minkin says'and you'll get some protein and calcium while you're at it…

'If it works, great! If not, at least you haven't hurt yourself,' Dr. Minkin says.

[From People]

Kudos to People for doing the leg work on this one and getting a gynecologist’s advice. Honestly I eat too much sugar, I’m pretty addicted to the stuff because Jelly Bellies are amazing, and that leads to yeast infections. (This is why I blog anonymously you guys, I like to talk about my embarrassing health and relationship problems and dish about my friends.) It’s never occurred to me to try the age-old method of applying yogurt to my lady parts, but I’m slightly more likely to try it now that I’ve read this story. (Like ever so slightly, it’s still doubtful that I’ll give it a chance.) When you can go to the drugstore and pay $9 for a three day treatment that will surely cure it, why mess around with yogurt' However when you have the stuff in your fridge, don’t feel like driving to CVS and there’s a spare Wendy’s straw still in the wrapper in the back of your silverware drawer, why not' It’s not going to hurt you at least, which is more than you can say for using Jade instead of kegel weights.

Gabrielle Union discusses fertility: 'I have had eight or nine miscarriages'

Gabrielle Union discusses fertility: 'I have had eight or nine miscarriages'
Gabrielle Union has been with Dwyane Wade for years now. Gabrielle was accused of being 'the other woman' when Wade's first marriage to Siohvaughn Funches broke down, and when I say that, I mean that Siohvaughn openly accused Gabrielle of being a shady homewrecker. Wade and Funches had two sons together, Zaire and Zion, plus Wade is raising his nephew Dahveon. Plus, Wade got another woman pregnant when he was with Gabrielle, so there's another boy, Xavier, in the mix too. Basically, when Gabrielle married Wade in 2014, she became a stepmother to four growing boys (two of whom are teenagers now). I always wondered why Gabrielle and Dwyane didn't have a child together, but Gabrielle always talked about how she didn't really want kids of her own in interviews. Now, in her new book, Gabrielle reveals that she actually did want or does want kids, but she's had big problems carrying a pregnancy. Her book is called We're Going to Need More Wine. This is a sad story:

Gabrielle Union has revealed she has suffered multiple miscarriages in attempted to have a much-longed for baby with NBA star husband Dwyane Wade. In her new book We're Going to Need More Wine ' excerpted exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE ' the star of BET's Being Mary Jane opens up about her struggles with infertility and failed IVF treatments.

'I have had eight or nine miscarriages,' Union, 44, writes in the book. 'For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant ' I've either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.'

While Union has spoken about IVF previously, she did not reveal the heartbreaking struggle she has faced. But even after enduring three years of failed IVF cycles and being constantly bloated from the hormones, Union writes that she and Wade 'remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we've both dreamed of.'

The pair tied the knot in August 2014 and at first, the star didn't see children as part of her future. But, after realizing how much joy she felt raising three boys with Wade, 35 ' his nephew Dahveon Morris, 16, and sons from a previous marriage Zaire, 15, and Zion, 10 (Wade's third son Xavier, 3, conceived with another woman while Wade and Union were broken up, lives with his mother) ' Union first discovered that having a baby was something she wanted.

'I never wanted kids,' she tells PEOPLE. 'Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I'd rather be than with them.'

Dealing with infertility while being in the public eye hasn't been easy for Union, who constantly is reminded of her struggle each time she's asked by both family and strangers alike when she's having kids.

'For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, 'Do you want kids'’' she says. 'A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say 'no' because that's a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause.'

'Once a month I look like I'm in my second trimester because I'm bloated,' she says. 'It leads to the questions and it leads to the rumors and anytime I go into a doctor's office I feel like I'm a member of SEAL Team Six undercover because I don't want people to speculate.'

[From People]

As I said, I've always idly wondered why Gabrielle and Dwyane didn't try to have a child together. But she's absolutely right – those kinds of questions and speculations are frustrating to women who are going through fertility issues. Not to mention, those conversations are none of my business. Still, people are going to gossip. Everyone gossips, and it's not always done with an evil or shady motivation. Sometimes, people are just curious and mean no harm. And now they'll know – Gabrielle's fighting a war with her own body. Nine miscarriages' my God. Poor Gabrielle.

Gabrielle Union in Zuhair Murad at the Emmys: goth-romantic or too heavy?
Gabrielle Union was an interesting addition to the Emmys last night – she came out as a presenter, and Union noted on her Twitter: 'I’ve been doing TV since 1995. This will be my 1st time going to the Emmys & I’m presenting an award! 22 yrs later. #OvernightSucces.' That sucks that this was the first time she's ever gone to the Emmys or been invited to present. Jesus. So for her big Emmy coming-out, Gabrielle wore this Zuhair Murad which reads to me as sort of goth and dark-romance. I like it, even though it feels a tad too 'heavy' for a September awards show. If I could change one thing, I would have made her take off the necklace – that adds too much 'weight' to the look. Her date was her husband, Dwayne Wade.

Anna Faris wore Marc Jacobs and didn't walk the Emmys red carpet. I think she was there mostly because the Emmys aired on CBS, and her show is on CBS, so promotion or whatever. Allison Janney seemed very protective of her and I just got the vibe that Anna didn't want to be there, post-separation from Chris Pratt. The dress sort of reflects that – a boring dress that she's not connected to at all. It's probably something her stylist picked out.

Does everyone else flat-out love Gabrielle Union's Rodarte look at the CFDAs'
In a world full of boring black dresses, I'm glad that Gabrielle Union came out to the CFDA Awards looking like Foxy Brown, if Foxy Brown was the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Gabrielle brought her husband Dwayne Wade to the CFDAs, and while they posed together for some photos, she also made him wait by the side so she could be photographed solo in this Rodarte ensemble. I love the pants and the sequined coat. I dislike – but accept – the blouse. And her hair is amazing. She's elevating this look because you can really tell that she loves it too.

Nicole Kidman in Oscar de la Renta. This is bad, right' I'm not just imagining that' Like, everything is wrong. Wrong hair. Wrong jewelry. Bad dress.

Priyanka Chopra in Michael Kors. This is a decent dress, albeit rather boring. Now I know how my mom feels when she sees me dressed in black – with Priyanka's coloring, she really should wear more bright and light colors. Damn it, my mom has been right this whole time!

Joan Smalls also wore Michael Kors. Why did Kors put all of the women of color in black'' What are you trying to say'!' Anyway, this is an okay dress. Eh.

Gabrielle Union calls out Amy Schumer & Kate Upton's white privilege
The controversy and general discomfort about and around Nate Parker has cooled off in the past few weeks. He managed to get through TIFF with few incidents, and last night's LA premiere of The Birth of a Nation was pretty straight-forward too. According to Deadline, there were no protesters and attendees generally wanted to see the film, regardless of Parker's controversies.

It doesn't seem like Parker was doing many red carpet interviews, but he did walk the carpet. I'm also including photos of Gabrielle Union, Armie Hammer and his wife, and Chadwick Boseman (who is not in the film, but came out to support the film). In lieu of any interviews with Parker, I did want to repost the link to this fantastic new Gabrielle Union interview, which I included in the links yesterday. Gabrielle spoke to xoNeCole in what turned out to be a far-ranging interview about white privilege, being a rape survivor, race and more ' go here to read the full piece. There's one part getting a lot of attention, and it's a pretty great part. Union is discussing privilege and how she would like to challenge her white colleagues to recognize their privilege, and how they are able to operate within the industry in a completely different way from black artists. Union named names.

The reason why most people aren't willing to go the extra mile to really have equality is because it won't benefit them. Most people are self-serving, which is human nature so you have to fight back against that. In order to begin to see change start to occur, we have to be willing to have conversations with people who have different opinions than us. I've already talked to Lena Dunham; I would love to talk to Kate Upton and Amy Schumer. Maybe I can help to explain the oppressive systems that have benefited and allowed them to say these careless, insensitive and offensive things. Those conversations are awkward as f–k and they get heated. Similar to watching people have conversations about consent.

[From xoNeCole]

LOL. I would have loved to have heard the conversation between Lena Dunham and Gabrielle Union. If Lena was smart ('') she would have just listened and not spoken. But yes, I am here for Gabrielle Union calling Amy Schumer and Kate Upton 'careless, insensitive and offensive.' Gabby has said no lies.

Gabrielle Union wrote an op-ed about Nate Parker, rape, consent & education

Gabrielle Union wrote an op-ed about Nate Parker, rape, consent & education
Over the course of a month, the Nate Parker story blew up. Literally nothing he said could make the situation more palatable. Parker was charged and put on trial for rape in 1999. The details of the case were always public record, but following the Sundance premiere of Parker's film, The Birth of a Nation, the studio hoped to put Parker front and center of an Oscar campaign. And that meant putting Parker front and center for press availability ahead of official release of the film. Every interview Parker has given in the past month has made the situation worse. In fact, I would argue that with each interview, Parker has gotten progressively worse. The last interview was the one he did with Ebony more than a week ago. It was profoundly disturbing.

Throughout the past month, some wondered if the cast of The Birth of a Nation would say anything about Parker publicly. Some even name-checked Gabrielle Union, who plays a small but significant role in the film – her character's rape is used as a the catalyst for Nat Turner's Rebellion, even though many historians take issue with that idea entirely. Union has spoken publicly before about how she was raped when she was a teenager, and it made me uncomfortable to think that people were like 'Gabby needs to speak about this.' She might not have even known, and even if she did, let's keep our eye on the ball: Parker is the bad guy here, not the actors in the cast. We shouldn’t re-victimize a rape survivor just because of her proximity to an accused rapist.

In any case, Union has finally spoken out. She wrote an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times, which you can read in its entirety here. She writes about her own rape, how 'rape is a wound that throbs long after it heals.' How she has been 'in a state of stomach-churning confusion' since she learned more about Parker's past. How black women in particular are voiceless in discussions about sexual assault, consent and more. Then she counters with what is basically an argument for what she is doing personally, and how she will approach the conversations around this film:

As important and ground-breaking as this film is, I cannot take these allegations lightly. On that night, 17-odd years ago, did Nate have his date's consent' It's very possible he thought he did. Yet by his own admission he did not have verbal affirmation; and even if she never said 'no,' silence certainly does not equal 'yes.' Although it's often difficult to read and understand body language, the fact that some individuals interpret the absence of a 'no' as a 'yes' is problematic at least, criminal at worst. That's why education on this issue is so vital.

As a black woman raising brilliant, handsome, talented young black men, I am cognizant of my responsibility to them and their future. My husband and I stress the importance of their having to walk an even straighter line than their white counterparts. A lesson that is heartbreaking and infuriating, but mandatory in the world we live in. We have spent countless hours focused on manners, education, the perils of drugs. We teach them about stranger-danger and making good choices. But recently I've become aware that we must speak to our children about boundaries between the sexes. And what it means to not be a danger to someone else. To that end, we are making an effort to teach our sons about affirmative consent. We explain that the onus is on them to explicitly ask if their partner consents. And we tell them that a shrug or a smile or a sigh won't suffice. They have to hear 'yes.'

Regardless of what I think may have happened that night 17 years ago, after reading all 700 pages of the trial transcript, I still don't actually know. Nor does anyone who was not in that room. But I believe that the film is an opportunity to inform and educate so that these situations cease to occur on college campuses, in dorm rooms, in fraternities, in apartments or anywhere else young people get together to socialize.

I took this part in this film to talk about sexual violence. To talk about this stain that lives on in our psyches. I know these conversations are uncomfortable and difficult and painful. But they are necessary. Addressing misogyny, toxic masculinity, and rape culture is necessary. Addressing what should and should not be deemed consent is necessary. Think of all the victims who, like my character, are silent. The girls sitting in their dorm rooms, scared to speak up. The wife who is abused by her husband. The woman attacked in an alley. The child molested. Countless souls broken from trans-violence attacks. It is for you that I am speaking. This is real. We are real. Sexual violence happens more often than anyone can imagine. And if the stories around this film do not prove and emphasize this, then I don't know what does.

It is my hope that we can use this as an opportunity to look within. To open up the conversation. To reach out to organizations which are working hard to prevent these kinds of crimes. And to support its victims. To donate time or money. To play an active role in creating a ripple that will change the ingrained misogyny that permeates our culture. And to eventually wipe the stain clean.

[From LAT]

I think Union is walking a fine line here, mostly because she's proud of her work in the film and she genuinely wants to be part of a larger dialogue about sexual violence and rape. She's very clearly giving Parker the benefit of the doubt, regardless of his own admissions and problematic statements. Would it be satisfying to see Union break professional ties with Parker publicly' Sure. But were people really expecting her to' She's not acting as an apologist for him or for rapists in general, she's just using this moment to draw attention to the larger conversation. The problem is that it won't work. Because as soon as Parker opens his mouth again, that will be the story.

Gabrielle Union: 'The penance for being a career woman is barrenness'

Gabrielle Union: 'The penance for being a career woman is barrenness'
I always go back and forth on this' Gabrielle Union: shady or fine' Like, I think she's shady for everything that went down with Dwyane Wade, from the end of his first marriage to their half-assed 'breakup' where he fathered a child with a 'friend,' to the way she seems to relish being an NBA WAG. But on the other side, I still sort of like her because I've always liked her. She's beautiful, she's a better actress than people realize, and she should have been a much bigger star.

Anyway, the October issue of Redbook has three covers for some reason. Gabrielle has one, then Erin Andrews on another, then Maria Menounos on another. All women were asked about, and spoke freely on, work-life balance, family planning and whether they even want to become mothers. Gabrielle made some of the most interesting comments:

The 10-year age difference between Gabrielle and Dwyane Wade: 'His teammates, were conceived when I was, like, a senior in high school. I was in high school at the same time as their parents! Sometimes he'll be like, 'Oh, my God, he's so old!' about someone who's 35. But, Dwyane's an old 33, and I'm a young 42, so it balances out.'

Starting a family with Wade: 'So far, it has not happened for us. A lot of my friends deal with this. There's a certain amount of shame that is placed on women who have perhaps chosen a career over starting a family younger. The penance for being a career woman is barrenness. You feel like you're wearing a scarlet letter.'

On IVF & the pressure of starting a family: 'The reality is that women are discriminated against in the workplace for being mothers. As much as there are strides being made ' you get pregnant, your career takes a hit. You can't have a bad day. Don't you dare cry at work. Don't raise your voice. Especially if you're a black woman in corporate America ' now you're 'the angry black woman.’'

[From Redbook]

Just to clarify, Wade is already a father ' he and his ex-wife have two sons together, and he has a third son with a 'friend,' the woman he slept with when he was supposed to be 'on a break' with Union. So, Union is a stepmother to his kids, but she's talking about having biological kids with Wade. If that's what she wants, then God bless, but it does sound like she has sort of mixed feelings about it. And yes, it does feel like the message from society and the media is 'The penance for being a career woman is barrenness.' Just like the penance for choosing to be child-free is that you're treated like an oddity, a social outcast.

Gabrielle Union on all of the NFL scandals: 'Roger Goodell has failed miserably'
I used to really like Gabrielle Union, and then all of the Dwyane Wade stuff happened, and I'm not such a fan anymore. To be clear, I think Wade is the shady one, but I think Gabrielle stayed with him and married him ' even though he cheated on her and fathered a child with another woman while he was with Union ' because she liked the lifestyle, and the cachet of being 'Dwyane Wade's official.' After they married, Gabrielle even tried to play it like she doesn't need his money and she was the one asking for a pre-nup to protect HER assets (he's worth hundreds of millions of dollars). So, anyway, Gabby has a new interview with Yahoo, and long story short' I kind of liked her here. You can read the full piece here. Some highlights:

Playing a journalist on her TV show: 'In my real life, I watch a lot of CNN. It's on right now. It's kind of one of those things that's always on in the background in general. Most days I read three newspapers. I read the Miami Herald, the Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times. I've always been very interested in the news. It's about wanting to be informed, and wanting to hear different perspectives on thing. A lot of people think about the same thing a lot of different ways.'

America's race relations: 'There's a bit of a gap between what I really want to say and what I know is responsible to say. The general lack of compassion for your fellow man is really frustrating. I think what the protesters are saying, or at least some of them, is it's not just about police brutality. It's about a widespread systematic crippling of some people in this country by birthright, and no one's acknowledging it. There may be a power shakeup if you're really going to do something about it. A lot of people aren't interested in that. They say, 'It's not that bad. We have Barack Obama. We're good.' Or, 'You're not getting lynched.' They're not acknowledging the institutional racism that impacts daily lives.

Makeup choices for all skin colors: 'It has gotten better. There are so many more lines that create shades for a wide range of hues and understand our green money works as well. And that we count. We want to look pretty, too.'

Why it's important for her to protect her assets: 'For women in Hollywood, when they're coupling, everything is about the brand. Everything is about latching on to a rising star, so you can kick your heels up. That's never been my story, ever. I make sure to let people know all of the hard work that's gone into my career. I want people to know the work that it took to get through UCLA, that I had student loans and worked. I was eating Top Ramen and lived well below my means. Now that it's time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.

Her thoughts on the NFL & Roger Goodell: 'The biggest thing is that the NFL is a business. It's professional sports, and there are 55 guys on a team. If there's one guy out of 55 who's done something horrible, you can't taint the other 54 with the same brush. But in the sense that a guy committing domestic violence received a less harsh penalty than players did for smoking weed, in that regard [NFL commissioner] Roger Goodell has failed miserably in bringing the NFL to a more enlightened time. If he'd talked to his customers, they'd much rather have Cheech and Chong on the field than the villain in a Tyler Perry movie. The NFL is a microcosm of all industries. Domestic violence affects Wall Street, teachers, and policemen. We have a lot of work to do as a league, but we also have a lot of work to do as a society.

Comparing her show, Being Mary Jane, to Scandal: 'What bugs me is that they're making the comparison because they're both shows that star black women. It's such apples and oranges. It's like comparing True Detective and Law & Order ' you would never do that. What it says is we need so much more diversity in TV. We need shows starring women of color or women of a certain age or women who aren't a size 2. If that happens, the world isn't going to end.'

She also talked about Chris Rock's THR interview where he name-checked her (she starred with Rock in Top Five) as one of the African-American actresses who should be offered more work. And she talked about the stupid controversy where the Star Wars geeks were freaking out about a black stormtrooper in the trailer. While I like what Gabrielle had to say about race and Hollywood and race and sports, I'm reminded of what Mindy Kaling always says: it's wrong when minority women have to spend the entire interview talking about race and misogyny while all of the white guys in Hollywood get to talk about their art. It's not that Gabrielle shouldn't be asked about this stuff, but reporters need to ask Bradley Cooper and JK Simmons and Eddie Redmayne about institutional racism and misogyny too.

Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade got married at a moated castle in Miami
I wanted to like Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade. I wanted to think that they were really in love and that nothing shady every happened between them. Not so much. Dwyane and his ex-wife had major drama and most people believe that Gabrielle was the 'homewrecker' in that situation. While his divorce was drawn out over the course of several years, he and Gabrielle were slightly on-and-off, and he ended up fathering a kid with a female friend. Gabrielle then took him back (if they were even apart) and they got engaged last year. And now they're married.

From Being Mary Jane to being married! Actress Gabrielle Union, 41, star of the hit BET drama about a woman unlucky in love, found her own happy ending Saturday, marrying long-time boyfriend Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade, 32.

The pair wed in Miami in front of an intimate crowd of family and friends. Wade’s two children from a previous marriage and a nephew he’s raising helped Wade propose back in December.

John Legend performed at the ceremony, and the bride wore a romantic Dennis Basso gown. Wade wore customized Dsquared2, his personally designed Wedding Collection bowtie from The Tie Bar and a boutonnire by Floral Fix. This is the second marriage for both Wade and Union.

The couple set up a 1930s era juke joint for party guests, serving Vanilla Puddin’ Chardonnay as the official white wine for the wedding. Cheers to the newlyweds!

You can see part of Gabrielle's Dennis Basso gown here ' it's strapless and seems to have a ruched bodice or something. She looks beautiful, for sure, but the vibe I'm getting is cookie-cutter bridal. White strapless gown, pretty veil, cream roses. Etc. TMZ has some details about the locale ' apparently, they got married at a famous 'moated castle' in Miami. That's why there are no pap photos from the wedding ' the property is very exclusive and heavily guarded. Plus, Gabby and Dwyane asked all of their guests to sign confidentiality agreements and agree not to post any wedding photos on social media. One official wedding portrait has already ended up in People Magazine though, so maybe they're selling their wedding photos as an exclusive'
