					                    Symptoms And Diagnosis For Candida Yeast Infection

Candida yeast infection is rather common amongst women and sometimes will go unnoticed. If
you are young and have never experienced the symptoms before, you may not even realize that
you have contracted this condition. However, you will begin to realize the symptoms as soon as
the vaginal infection becomes more severe.

This infection that is also referred to as “vaginitis” is extremely common amongst women.
Whether you like it or not, the symptoms are not going to mosey away on their own. They will
actually get worse the more you prolong treatment. This is precisely why it is vital you seek
treatment as soon as you identify what the problem is.

Some women are embarrassed to seek help because of the region the problem occurs and the
symptoms they may be experiencing. However, you need to realize there are people out there
who you can trust that will not be embarrassed to talk to you. In fact, chances are likely that they
too may have experienced a candida yeast infection before.

There are several different symptoms you may experience over time. Itching and burning of the
outer vaginal area is fairly common as well as redness and inflammation of the labia. One of the
more embarrassing symptoms for women is a heavy odorous vaginal discharge. Just remember
that this is common and you are not the only one to have experienced this.

By overlooking these symptoms you are only risking the infection worsening over time. There is
the potential of the infection moving to the urethra which will then result in a painful urinary
tract infection. This is an infection that no girl wants to go through with constant pain, bloody
urine and the feeling of always needing to urinate.

Something your gynecologist will most probably require out of you is a pelvic assessment in
order to get the right diagnosis. While it will be uncomfortable and can be painful considering
your vaginal area is already in pain, just know that this will be the best way to treat the problem.

The last step to treating candida yeast infection is to take a urine and blood sample. The reason
for this is so that your gynecologist can rule out any more severe conditions that you may have.
The last thing you want is to be treated for a yeast infection when you actually have gonorrhea,
genital herpes, or even cancer. Take the right steps and get a proper diagnosis from your
gynecologist so you can move on to living a long and healthy life.
