Yeast Infection and Menopause? 3 Things to Be Avoided to Cure Your Yeast Infection Menopause? Suffering from yeast infection? Then you've come to the right place. Here, you'll discover 3 things to avoid in order to eliminate your yeast infection. Even if you haven't suffered an infection yet, during the menopause you are more at risk, so these 3 tips can be important preventative steps. By way of introduction to the problem, you first need to know why yeast infection (sometimes called vaginitis, candida or candidiasis) and menopause are often linked... The cause is a yeast-like flora called 'candida albicans' which is normally kept under control by your good bacteria. But during the menopause, your hormones are continually fluctuating, which leads to the bacteria in your vagina getting out of control, leading to yeast infection. And there are many things that can help to 'encourage' the growth of the candida flora, particularly in and around your vagina. You must do all you can to prevent this to have any hope of defeating your infection, especially during the menopause. Here are just 3 of the things you have to avoid:- 1. Antibiotics To start with, you must avoid over-dependence on antibiotics. The key reasoning for this is that antibiotics, whilst killing-off the bacteria that they are meant for, can also kill-off the good bacteria in your system that help to prevent candida. Talk to your doctor and see if he / she can provide a more 'focussed' antibiotic for your present problem that won't also kill your good bacteria. And for any other advice they can give. 2. Feminine Sprays, etc. Secondly, you really need to cut-out, or at the very least, drastically reduce your use of scented feminine sprays, douches, etc. Believe it or not, these help the yeast infection bacteria to thrive. The best way is just to use plain soap and water. 3. Tight Underwear Third and last, but not necessarily least, you shouldn't wear tight, man-made fiber underwear. The reason for this is that moist, warm areas encourage the growth of the yeast fungus. You should wear cotton underwear that isn't too tight, so that your vagina and the surrounding area can 'breathe' and so limit the possibility of fungal growth. These are just three of the important issues you need to address in order to get rid of yeast infection. But there are many other critical issues that you need to familiarize yourself with, especially during the menopause.
