Question: what if i had a yeast infection then my period and then a yeast infection again…could I be pregnant?
I’ve been getting yeast infections each month about 3 months ago because of my birth control. I decided to stop taking them. last month I got a yeast infection randomly, for a week. Two days later got my period, five days later I am finishing my period and I feel that another yeast infection is coming. Could that be a sign of early pregnancy, even though I ha a normal period?

You must have a lowered immune system I would go have blood work done to see what is going on!

    If you were you could probably already test and see if you were pregnant since you said 3 months ago. I would guess your not and im not sure but what birth control are you on that causes Y.I? Its probably something else like too tight of jeans or not keeping up hygiene. But i wouldnt think you were pregnant. although its possible to be and have a period.

    There are 2 good reasons to learn a bit about the causes of vaginal yeast infections. first, if you have recurring yeast infections, you can figure out what’s causing them and then work to prevent them, rather than just working to kill the yeast every time they take over. second, if you know what kinds of things cause you to get yeast infections, you can be alert for symptoms and treat them early on with the generally-milder do-it-yourself remedies, rather than bombarding your body with drugs.

    Fungus Causes Yeast Infections

    The primary cause of yeast infection in woman is fungus – primarily Candida albicans. Along with some other types of bacteria, Candida albicans are usually present in small amounts in the vaginal area. However, the bacteria becomes a cause for concern when it multiples rapidly, becoming a yeast infection also known by the medical terms of candidiasis or monilia.

    Various Other Yeast Infection Causes

    Immune System: The biggest cause of rapid bacterial growth is the result of a lowered immune system. This occurs when you do too much, do not get enough sleep, or are sick. Reoccuring yeast infections can also be due to stress.

    Hormones: The body’s hormonal changes towards the end of the menstruation cycle can be another cause of vaginal yeast infection. Birth control and pregnancy are two other factors that could fall into the category of a yeast infection cause. In fact, during pregnancy, women can experience recurrent infections.

    Sex: While Candida infections are not usually thought of as sexually transmitted diseases, they can be passed onto your partner during sex through semen and other bodily fluids. Vaginal intercourse without adequate lubrication makes the situation worse.

    Antibiotics: Antibiotics are probably the leading cause of chronic yeast infection in American women. This happens with certain types of antibiotic or prolonged usage. Some women get yeast infections no matter what type of antibiotics they take or how long they use it. Unfortunately, there is no way of preventing an antibiotic-induced yeast infection. However, here are a number of treatments to take once it starts.

    Diabetes: Being diabetic or having elevated blood sugar levels can cause yeast to grow. This is primarily due to what is called uncontrolled diabetes mellitus.

    Factors That Encourage Yeast Infections

    Other situations may not be a direct cause but they may increase the likelihood of infection.

    * Hot, humid weather.
    * Tight or poorly ventilated clothing, including damp bathing suits or pantyhose.
    * Significant dietary changes, poor nutrition, and bad eating habits like junk food.
    * Frequent exposure to sperm and semen over a short period of time.
    * Douching washes away both healthy secretions and normal bacteria from the vagina.
    * Improper wiping from rear to front after using the toilet.
    * Sweating, which can also increase your pH level.
    * Menopause.
    * Some prescriptions, including those that contain steroids, such as Prednisone.
    * Poor personal hygiene.
    * Perfumed feminine hygiene sprays.
    * HIV infection.
    * Injuries.
    * Allergic reactions.

    No– having a period means you are not pregnant.

    Are you treating these infections? It could be that you’ve been off-balance for a long time and this is all one long untreated infection. Having lots of yeast infections usually has an underlying cause: you should see a doctor to check out why your immune system’s having trouble fighting off yeast, and to get tested for diabetes, which can make you more susceptible to this problem. In the meanwhile, eat yogurt with active cultures to help the good bacteria in your vagina fight off yeast!

    No this would not be related to pregnancy. You probably have an imbalance and need to get some good bacteria like from yogurt and fermented foods. I would recommend the product “canda clear” and adding probiotics for awhile until you get the yeast under control. It may sound grose but if you can find sugar free plain yogurt then you can soak a tampon in it and put it in over night. I know what it is like. I myself battled with recurrent yeast infections for awhile and finally they are gone and I haven’t had one in months. I tried many different things. Anyway good luck :-)

    Most of the information you’ve received here in the comments is correct. First, if you have had another period, you are most definitely NOT pregnant.
