Vaginal yeast infection

A vaginal yeast infection is both common and harmless. It usually goes away on its own within a few days. However, it can be very difficult with such a vaginal imbalance.

Vaginal yeast infection

How do you get a vaginal yeast infection?

A vaginal yeast infection is usually caused by a form of yeast fungus, usually Candida albicans, a natural component of the human digestive tract.

Some women have a yeast component in their vaginal secretion without any discomfort, but it can occasionally cause a yeast infection.

It is not known what causes the yeast infection. Some women develop a fungal infection after treatment with antibiotics or in connection with their periods or pregnancy due to hormonal changes.

Yeast infection symptoms

  • Irritation, burning and redness
  • Swollen and brittle mucous membranes in the vagina, which bleed more easily than usual
  • A burning sensation when urinating or pain during intercourse
  • Sometimes you may get a white discharge from the vagina that resembles cottage cheese, or the discharge may be very thin, or you may have no increased discharge at all

Factors said to increase the risk

  • Intercourse
  • Antibiotic treatment
  • Changes in the vaginal pH
  • Hereditary factors
  • The pill or hormonal coil
  • Transfer of yeast from the gastrointestinal tract
  • Weakened immune system or stress
