    vulvovaginal candidiasis (or yeast infection) is an infection caused by a fungus called candida albicans

    you can get them for no reason at all but they are usually brought on by a few things, stress, pregnancy, and illnesses that affect the immune system. these may allow yeast to multiply

    common symptoms are:
    itching and irritation in the vagina
    redness, swelling, or itching of the vulva (the folds of skin outside the vagina)
    a thick, white discharge that is usually odorless
    pain or burning when urinating or during sex

    if you have any of these symptoms i suggest you go see a dr/gynecolagist these can make a proper diagnosis and place you on the correct treatment

    You always get them for a reason and they’re actually pretty common for most women to get occasionally. You don’t need to even be sexually active to get them. Most of the time they are caused by soap or some chemical reaction to something that might have been in that area OR from medicines you are taking (some antibiotics can cause them.)

    Symptoms are usually: burning, itching, redness, soreness, pain during intercourse and unusual vaginal discharge.

    If you have these symptoms, you should go to the doctor and they will give you a pill called Diflucan that will make it go away in 2 days. You can also go to a drug store and buy the over the counter stuff, but it will take longer to go away.

    You can prevent them by avoiding douche and perfumes and also avoiding the use of soap in or around the inner area. (You should always clean the area with water as it is a self cleaning system in your body and you don’t want to disrupt the chemistry.) Also, if you are prescribed antibiotics you can tell your doctor that they give you yeast infections and they will prescribe you Diflucan at the same time.

    Reoccurring yeast infections can be due to an underlying health condition so make sure you see your doctor if you keep getting them.

    Yeast is a fungus referred to as Candida. Yeast is commonly present on normal human skin and in areas of moisture, such as the mouth and vagina.

    Vaginal yeast infections occur when new yeast is introduced into the vaginal area, or when there is an increase in the quantity of yeast already present in the vagina relative to the quantity of normal bacteria.

    If you have diabetes mellitus or are pregnant or taking oral contraceptives (birth control pills) or antibiotics you may get an infection. The use of douches or perfumed vaginal hygiene sprays may also increase a woman’s risk of developing a vaginal yeast infection. Improper ventilation – say wearing nylons too long, tight pants, etc, can contribute to getting an infection. Sugar feeds yeast.

    Signs of yeast infections:
    White, cottage cheese-like discharge
    Swelling and pain around the vulva
    Intense itching

    For a few women, a yeast infection can go away on it’s own just after their period, but most of us cannot stand the itching for that long.

    Bacterial vaginosis
    Bacterial vaginosis results from an overgrowth of one of several organisms normally present in your vagina. Usually, “good” bacteria outnumber “bad” bacteria in your vagina. But if bad bacteria become too numerous, they upset the balance and bacterial vaginosis results. This type of vaginitis can spread during sexual intercourse, but it also occurs in people who aren’t sexually active. Women with new or multiple sex partners, as well as women who douche or use an intrauterine device (IUD) for birth control, have a higher risk of bacterial vaginosis.-

    Yeast infections-
    Yeast infections occur when certain internal or external factors change the normal environment of your vagina and trigger an overgrowth of a microscopic fungus — the most common being C. albicans. A yeast infection isn’t considered a sexually transmitted disease. Besides causing most vaginal yeast infections, C. albicans also causes infections in other moist areas of your body, such as in your mouth (thrush), skin folds and fingernail beds. The fungi can also cause diaper rash.-Vaginitis symptoms may include:

    -Change in color, odor or amount of discharge from your vagina
    -Vaginal itching or irritation
    -Pain during intercourse
    -Painful urination
    -Light vaginal bleeding

    Additionally, you may have these signs and symptoms depending on the type of vaginitis:

    -Bacterial vaginosis. You may develop a grayish-white, foul-smelling discharge. The odor, often described as fish-like, may be more obvious after sexual intercourse.
    -Yeast infections. The main symptom is itching, but you may have a white, thick discharge that resembles cottage cheese.
    -Trichomoniasis. This infection can cause a greenish yellow, sometimes frothy discharge. -
