Question: Can you get yeast infections from wet swim suits?
I had heard leaving a swim suit on too long can cause yeast infections in women. True or false? It makes me paranoid.

It’s a perfect environment..moist, warm and dark. Gross but true. That’s why you should change into clothes if you don’t plan on swimming anymore.

    True. Bacteria like yeast like warm and damn places (aka your vagina and a damp swim suit) to grow. But don’t worry. You need to be wearing a warm wet suit for over three or four hours (not including time in the water, cause then you are moving and nothings growing underwater) and even then you might not. Just throw on some panties and shorts after your done swimming if you can. But I have had damp suits plenty of times and have only had one yeast infection (in the middle of winter too) so i don’t think its too common.
