Vaginal Yeast Infections - Signs You Must Be Aware Of!

Vaginal Yeast Infections - Signs You Must Be Aware Of!

In a healthy individual, there are millions of microorganisms in different parts of the body which are essential for normal functioning of that particular organ. Be it the mouth or the gut or the reproductive tract, there are normally organisms. These form part of the normal flora of that body part. It is when there is an imbalance between the good and bad bacteria, where the bad ones take over, then there is a problem. This results in an infection, which manifests with symptoms and requires treatment.

Vaginal yeast infection is one of the most common such conditions and almost 75% of the women would have had it at least once in their lifetime. It is most commonly caused by the yeast Candida albicans, which is normally present in the vagina. Though it can be sexually transmitted, it is not a usual STD.

Causes: The vagina also contains the bacteria Lactobacillus, which produces acid and is essential for maintaining an acidic environment. This acidic environment ensures there is no overgrowth of the yeast. For various reasons, this balance is lost and there is an overgrowth of yeast leading to vaginal yeast infections. Some of the common causes are listed below.

  • Antibiotic usage, which kills the Lactobacillus count and increases vaginal pH
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Weakened immunity due to various reasons
  • Pregnancy
  • Increased levels of oestrogen due to use of birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy

Symptoms: The symptoms would depend on the severity of the infection.

  • Vaginal itching, burning, and irritation
  • Vulvar swelling, irritation, and redness
  • Burning sensation with urination or intercourse
  • Vaginal rash
  • Vaginal soreness and pain
  • Vaginal discharge that can be thick or thin, white or clear, odor-free or foul-smelling

In cases of recurrent vaginal yeast infections, there could be more than 4 infections per year along with extensive burning and itching and swelling that could even lead to cracks and fissures.

Diagnosis: Though the symptoms can be helpful in diagnosis, sometimes a pelvic exam and swab of the vaginal discharge might be required to confirm the diagnosis. This is especially required in cases of repeated infections.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

YOu can take contraceptive pill and its regular use has risks . SO you can try nen medical treatment to prevent pregnancy like copper T , or Saheli which is non steroidal drug and You’ve got to take Saheli twice a week for the first three months. But after that you take just one pill a week.

Hi Krishna, initially you have to be on diet rich in flavanoids, calcium, soya so that it will help. Even if symptoms are persistent then need to put on medication. Hormonal therapy have many side effect so decision has to be taken on risk benefits ratio.

I am married and 28 years old. Trying for pregnancy. I have pco and thyroid i m taking thyronorm 100 mcg. I am due for my periods. Its been 2 months now. And there is thick white discharge, what does it mean? usually if we are due for the periods the white discharge will stop. Why this discharge is coming now. And I do not have any pregnancy symptoms.

White discharge is not important if not associated with other complaints. For pregnancy- In PCOD ovulation- release of ovum is deranged because of hormonal changes. So long time different trials are required to treat same so with patience continue consulting Gynecologist or infertility specialist in whom you have trust. Thyroid problem adds in this problem.

I had unprotected sex with my Gf last night . Before this I did with 1 other girl also. Does it lead to HIV ?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Unprotected intercourse with an infected individual can definitely result in you also getting infected with the same. Unprotected intercourse is therefore not recommended. Please get yourself tested for STI soon and for HIV after 6 months to be sure.
