Yeast Infections Supplements

Yeast Infections
Yeast infections are the most common type of vaginal infections. Yeast infections are likely to affect three out of four women at least once in their lifetime.

Yeast infection, also known as candidiasis, is the name for a common infection caused by a type of yeast or fungus called Candida. Candida is normally found in the body. When your body is in balance it usually causes no problems. Sometimes, though, yeast fungi do grow too much, and this can cause an infection. These infections usually occur in warm, moist parts of the body, such as the mouth and moist areas of skin.

Yeast infections are fairly easy to treat.

Causes
Yeast feeds on glucose, so anything that increases your blood sugar or changes the hormonal balance that regulates blood sugar can help yeast to grow out of control.
Factors which can lead to a yeast infection:

  • hormonal changes that come with pregnancy or even before monthly periods
  • taking hormones, birth control pills, antibiotics (especially broad spectrum antibiotics), steroid medicines (such as prednisone)
  • having elevated blood sugar such as found in uncontrolled diabetes
  • vaginal intercourse, especially with inadequate lubrication
  • fatigue and stress

Symptoms

  • itching, irritation and redness around the external genitalia
  • thick, white discharge that looks like cottage cheese and may smell like yeast
  • burning and/or pain when you urinate or have sex
