Vaginal Yeast Infection is Seldom Serious By Paul Rodgers

Causes of yeast infections are many and before you know them, it is good to first have a clear understanding of what yeast infection is. A yeast infection is an overgrowth of yeast in your vagina, leading to uncomfortable symptoms such as: itching and burning in and around your vagina burning sensation when urinating (peeing) vaginal pain or discomfort during sex vaginal discharge that may look like cottage cheese (it may also be thinner or absent). Although a yeast infection is not a sexually transmitted disease, it is possible to pass it back and forth between sexual partners. Yeast is commonly present on normal human skin and in areas of moisture, such as the mouth and vagina. Yeast normally live in the vagina in small numbers, but when the bacteria in the vagina become out of balance, too many yeast grow and cause an infection. Yeast infections can cause severe discomfort but rarely cause serious health problems. Yeast infection causes include: Using medications that contain steroids; Using antibiotics; Being diabetic or having elevated blood sugar levels; Using the birth control pill or another form of hormonal contraception; Hormonal changes due to menstrual cycle or pregnancy; Frequently wearing tight pants or pantyhose... Yeast infections are a very common and most women, about 70% of them, will get a yeast infection at least once intheir lifetimes. And some of these women will get recurring yeast infections. Women usually do not get yeast infections from sex. Instead, a weakened immune system is the most common cause of yeast infections. Most physicians discourage women from diagnosing and treating themselves with over-the-counter medications, because symptoms may be produced by more serious vaginal infections, such as bacterial vaginosis or trichomoniasis. Trichomoniasis produces symptoms that are similar to other vaginal infections, but it is much more serious and requires specific treatment. A variety of alternative treatments exist to help cure bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections. In a healthy vagina, there is a balance of several basic "components" thatwork together including bacteria, yeast, hormones and glycogen and naturalsecretions. When the healthy balance in the

vagina is disturbed, the yeast overgrows. Most vaginal infections present no risk to your health, though they can be quite uncomfortable. Your health professional can usually diagnose a yeast infection just by finding discharge that looks like cottage cheese during a pelvic exam. Two simple tests can help your health professional figure out what you've got. In the first test, your health professional will look at a sample of your vaginal discharge under a microscope. In the second test, your health professional will send a sample of your discharge to the lab for a culture. If you don't have a yeast infection, these tests will help your health professional figure out what kind of infection you do have. A mild vaginal yeast infection maycorrect itself without treatment. However, you are not likely to be able to go without treatment if you develop severe symptoms. Thankfully, treatment is readily available, both over-the-counter solutions as well as alternative, drug-free treatments. Perhaps the greatest risks you face when treating a vaginal yeast infection are related to self-diagnosis and self-treatment. Providing that you have had a diagnosed yeast infection before, correctly diagnose your condition based on past symptoms, and self-treat with a nonprescription treatment as directed, your risks are minimal. Medications for yeast infections consists of creams and suppositories, both sold over the counter as well as oral medications, which require a prescription. The medical treatment of yeast infection centre around medications that slow the growth of the yeast. While there are many over-the-counter medications available, it is important to have a proper diagnosis of a yeast infection before you start using these strong medications, especially if this is your first yeast infection. If you had a yeast infection before and are sure it is the same infection again, it is safe to use over-the-counter antifungal medications. While medications can destroy a particular infection, they don't prevent future infections. If over the counter medications seem to temporarily relieve your infection, but the infection quickly returns, you may be a victim of a chronic yeast infection. Learning to recognize the symptoms of vaginal yeast infection is vital before women attempt self-treatment. Conventional medical treatment for vaginal yeast infection is based on taking drugs or using topical creams. Once the yeast infection is confirmed, it is usually easily treated by over-the-counter treatments or prescription medications. Among the most effective natural treatments for yeast infection is the use of probiotics, or what is commonly called friendly bacteria or beneficial bacteria. Thankfully, treatment is readily available, both over-the-counter solutions as well as alternative, drug-free treatments.

How To Cope With Vaginal Yeast Infection By Frank Thornton

Our body is the home for yeast organisms or cells called Candida Albicans. These cells exist in several places including the skin, the mouth and the vagina, and it’s perfectly normal to have them. The problem of vaginal yeast infection occurs when there is an excess amount of yeast cells in the vagina. Usually these cells are kept from multiplying by the acid balance in the vagina, and so it helps to understand what causes an imbalance. Ironically one of the causes of a yeast infection can be antibiotics. If you have a urinary tract infection, the antibiotic you use to cure it may indeed be creating conditions in which yeast infection thrives. While antibiotics destroy harmful microorganisms, they can also destroy “good” ones. This causes an imbalance and conditions which enable Candida cells to grow in their place, resulting in an excess number of yeast cells. In some cases, this manifests itself as a vaginal yeast infection. When do yeast infections occur Yeast infections can occur during pregnancy, at the end of menstruation, being on a course of antibiotics, or using birth control pills. Child bearing years is certainly a common time to have a yeast infection. Recognizing a vaginal yeast infection The most common vaginal yeast infection symptoms are itching in the vagina or vulva region. Sex can be painful and a vaginal yeast infection discharge often occurs, similar to cottage cheese in consistency. You can easily find pictures of vaginal yeast infection on the Internet. Simply search for the term “pictures of vaginal yeast infection”. How to treat a vaginal yeast infection Treatments for vaginal yeast infections range from natural home remedies to over the counter vaginal yeast infection medication such as antifungal creams like MONISTAT. Popular home cures for vaginal yeast infections use garlic or yogurt. A good tip is to take yogurt when you are on a course of antibiotics. Be sure to choose yogurt with acidophilus (check the label) since it helps with the fight against yeast infection. Some people use boric acid for vaginal yeast infections, in the form of supplements. However, boric acid should never be taken during pregnancy, and it’s best not to even consider using it until you have talked to your doctor about it. When treating a yeast infection, it’s one thing to get pain relief and it’s another to actually cure the cause. It’s best to get to the root of recurrent vaginal yeast infections. Understand the symptoms for vaginal yeast infection and get well educated before seeing your doctor so you can make the best possible decision for treating the infection.
