Vaginal Yeast Infection


Vaginal yeast infection is not sexually transmitted. It is a common vagina infection. About 75% of women would have the infection once in their lives.

Yeast infection in the vagina is rare before puberty and after menopause.

Vaginal or candida yeast infection is caused by a strain of microscopic fungus commonly known as candida albicans.

Besides causing a yeast infection in the female reproductive organ, the fungus also infects other body parts which is warm and moist e.g. mouth (thrush), skin folds (where the legs join with the pelvis) fingernail beds and diaper rash in babies.

The largest colony of bacteria in the vagina– the Lactobacillus acidophilus keeps the multiplication of the other organisms in check.

However certain internal and external factors can upset this normal balance of organisms in the internal vaginal anatomy and trigger an overgrowth of the fungus causing a yeast infection.

The normal balance of organisms can be disrupted by:-

Oral Antibiotics

Use of oral antibiotics for other conditions. These antibiotics do a good job by killing off the bad bacteria that cause the sickness but they also kill the good, helpful bacteria in the vagina. Once the population of the good bacteria is reduced, vaginal yeast infection sets in.

Hormones

Hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and oral contraceptives . Some hormonal birth control may have a higher dose of estrogen.

Douching

Chemical douches and vaginal sprays can disrupt the normal balance of vaginal flora, thereby increasing the risk of vaginal yeast infection.

Diabetes

You have diabetes  and blood sugar is not under control.

Weakened Immune System

Women with a weakened immune system are also at a higher risk of yeast infection.

Clothing

Do change out of swimming and exercise clothes as soon as you as yeast love warm and moist conditions. Wear cotton underwear or pantyhose with cotton crotch to reduce vaginal sweating.

Symptoms of Vaginal Yeast Infection

The following are some of the signs of a candida infection in the vagina:-

  • Extreme vaginal itching in and around the vagina.
  • Inflammation of the vulva-redness and soreness
  • Pain or vaginal burning during urination and sexual intercourse.
  • White, odorless vaginal discharge which look like curd or cottage cheese. Some women may not have noticeable discharge.

Home Treatment For Vaginal Yeast Infection

These home treatments are effective during the early onset of an infection. If symptoms do not subside after a week or are getting worse, see a doctor promptly.

  • Dip a clean tampon in plain yogurt and insert it into the vagina twice a day. Continue an extra day after the symptoms has gone away.
  • Pour a few drops of tea tree oil on a tampon and gently insert it into the intimate area to provide relief from the itching and burning.
  • Garlic paste is an effective remedy for direct application on other body parts with yeast infection, but I won’t encourage you to apply it on the sensitive vaginal area.
  • Yu Dai Wan and Ku Shen (available in Chinese medical shops). Yu Dan Wan can help to eliminate the creamy discharge and Ku Shen can be use as a wash for the vagina.

This means you eat less refined carbohydrates - white bread, cookies, white rice and noodles and drink less carbonated drinks and alcohol.  But drink plenty of plain water to flush out the sugar in the body.

Yogurt

Eat more yogurt especially the ones labelled with “live active cultures” or Greek yogurt to increase the population of “good bacteria” in the vagina.
