Untreated Yeast Infections - Will They Clear On Their Own

Mar 16, 2008
A vaginal yeast infection is a fungal infection, and can be a very uncomfortable time for most woman. If you have suffered from a yeast infection, or are suffering at the moment, I can tell you that a yeast infection will not clear if it's left untreated.

The Candida Albicans yeast which is the culprit for the symptoms of your vaginal infection has mutated into an aggressive fungus. This fungus will not leave your vagina until you treat it, and if left untreated it will not just stay there but it will burrow its way further into your skin.

One of the main reasons why any women would be hoping that their yeast infection will clear by itself is due to the embarrassment of seeing their doctor and/or purchasing an over the counter anti fungal cream or suppositories. They may feel good about not having to deal with any embarrassing situations, but they could be putting their own health in danger.

If you have a vaginal infection that you want to leave untreated, and you haven't had it properly diagnosed by your doctor you could have another infection. If any other vaginal infection is left untreated or left too long before you can no longer tolerate the symptoms you run the risk of causing permanent damage to your kidneys and/or your reproductive organs.

If you are suffering from any symptoms that resemble a yeast infection then you should go to see your doctor as soon as possible. You should see your doctor even if you have suffered from a yeast infection before. Only your doctor can test you properly, and see if the infection is caused by the Candida yeast.

You should see your doctor when you start suffering from any of these symptoms...

Itching in and around your genital area
Burning sensation when urinating
Pain during sexual intercourse
Vaginal discharge

Once you have established that you have a yeast infection you can then see what the cause is. Your doctor can also run tests to make sure you have no major health issues, but this will probably only happen if your yeast infection becomes recurrent.

If a yeast infection is left untreated it will only get worse, which will lead to your symptoms getting more severe. It can also spread to other parts of your body if the cause of the infection isn't identified. A yeast infection can be a sign something isn't right, and your health could deteriorate if the cause isn't found.
