symptoms of candida yeast
by Earthworm

So I have had sex with one guy twice. The first time after we had sex I ended up getting a UTI. and it went away… two days ago we had sex again and now this day i have a yeast infection. It itches and its kind of cottage cheesy.. Both times we used a condom. and I have never had any problems with utis or yeast infections until now. How did i get one if i used a condom.. and how to i get rid of this. Im 18 but my mother keeps my medical card so I cant go to the doctors.. if she finds out i had sex she will kick me out.

Monistat 7 will get rid of it. You don’t need a prescription for it.

    A yeast infection is not from having sex. We all have yeast in our systems. A woman’s hormones can trigger the yeast to multiply and if your immune system is weak, you will get an infection. A poor diet is another contribution. Too much sugar or breads — not good. Get some monistat from the drug store and some probiotic yogurt and eat a carton every day. Omit sugars from your diet. That includes sodas and juice. Take Vitamin C if you can and drink lots of water.
    If you are old enough to have sex you need to realize your body does stuff and you gotta take care of it by eating right, exercise, drinking water, etc. Glad you used a condom at least. That’s good. When you become sexually active it can cause problems like UTIs.
    UTIs are caused from bacteria around your anus that works its way down into your urethra during sex. You can also get a UTI from having a bowel movement and wiping from back to front, not front to back. Sometimes certain sexual positions can contribute, like “doggie style” or anything where the guy is rubbing up against your backside. Not always, but it can happen.
    Some women are just prone to getting UTIs. I was, no matter what I did.

    Hey Hi,

    It looks like you have signs and symptoms of candida yeast infection.

    Yeast can transfer from a partner specially if its a sexual act. Now your bf needs to get himself treated as well if you guys want to be together and have sexual relationship its best for both of you.

    There is nothing wrong to have yeast infection and your mom shouldnt be mad about it because she probably had it dozen of times as well.

    I had it for over 15 yrs and it took over my life. Based on my personal experience and 100s of other women that I have talked to and helped here is what I can tell you.

    1. You will experience more itching around private area

    2. You will experience discharge that will make your panties dirty, your discharge could also happen while you are having intercourse. Sort of white cottage cheese.

    3. You may also experience smell down there, at start it’s not that bad but if you leave it untreated then things can get out of control and smell can totally ruin your life. In my case I lost my bf and job it was just too much I couldnt stay still without applying perfume every 10-15 minutes yes it was that bad.

    4. Bloating/Gas what happens if after a while you dont treat it you may experience some sort of gas/bloating and it can get really embarrasing. In my case it always came when my bf was just gonna kiss me or when we would get intimate or some other random times of the day while I was doing something.

    5. Painful sex, your sexual life will be severely impact because if you get vaginal yeast infection manifestation of candida then it hurts badly during sex.

    3 out of 4 women gets recurring yeast infection and almost 2-3times a year.

    You can read further about signs and symptoms of candida by sean brookwood who is a candida expert and well known person who has done a lot of research on topic of candida.

    In regards with the treatment options (your immune system is low so natural remedies might not be enough) available for you lets look over those, mind you I have spent tens and thousands of dollars and over a decade trying everything so what you will read below is based on my personal experience and after helping 100s of other women suffering from candida

    1. Antibiotics wont really help much. If you keep up with news then CDC recently announced that the age of antibiotics is almost over. They are not great option. Further in case of candida it can help you at start but then candida will come back with furry and it will get harder to treat it.

    2. OTC treatment options, many people on this site and other places or even if you go see a doctor he/she will recommend you Monistat or Diflucan while these may help cover the symptoms for a while but it wont really treat your candida. It will just go away for a while and come back. Plus its really not a cheap solution and wont do you good in long run.

    3. Home Remedies option -> Not that home remedies dont work the issue is that you will have to eat/use 20-30 in order to get even a slight benefit for example –>

    Garlic -> Can you eat 30 garlic a day? Unless you live in a cave with no social interaction and nothing I doubt you wanna eat all that garlic.

    Yogurt -> Can you eat 20 boxes of big yogurt? While it has good bacteria its just not enough plus it doesnt pass the outer later of stomach wall which is full of acids.

    Here is what I recommend through which I got my life back and 100s of other women got their back:

    1. Get on some candida diet, there are tons of them out there I personally recommend Sean Brookwood’s candida treatment protocol, he has tons of great information about candida. However you can try some other candida diet if you cant follow Sean’s protocol.

    2. Make sure your private area is always dry dont leave it wet

    3. Get yourself cotton panties

    4. Make sure you are not taking douches

    5. Get yourself a good candida yeast infection probiotic the one I recommend to all of my friends and other women suffering from candida is probacto probiotics, their probiotic has all the good bacteria strains that can help against candida. I been using them for over a decade now and really no complaints.

    6. Get a good multivitamin, I recommend Alive Multivitamin it’s great and I take it on daily basis you cant go wrong.

    7. Make sure you are drinking 2-3 cups of Nettle Leaf Tea everyday.

    8. Avoid excessive alcohol

    And give it at least 2-3 months, once you have recovered make sure you take probiotics at least once a day for a while so that candida doesn’t come back.

    I hope it helps, let me know if you have further questions.
