Will Your Vaginal Yeast Infection Clear Without Treatment

Jul 22, 2008
Seventy Five percent of women will experience the uncomfortable symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection at least once in their lifetime. A small percentage of these women will contemplate leaving their infection untreated, but I can tell you now that a yeast infection will not clear if you don't attempt to treat it.

Your infection is caused by an aggressive fungus that is burrowing it's way into your skin cells. These will be the skin cells in and around your vagina, and the fungus will burrow it's way further into your skin looking for fresh cells to feed on, and your symptoms will get worse.

The embarrassment of a doctors visit is one of the major reasons for leaving a yeast infection untreated. Purchasing anti fungal creams over the counter is another reason as it's obvious what you're purchasing the cream or suppositories for. Doctors and chemist/drug store staff meet women almost every day who are suffering from a vaginal infection, and keeping it to yourself in the hope it will go away can be dangerous to your health.

Seeing your doctor not only confirms that you have a yeast infection, but it also rules out any other vaginal infection that you could be suffering from. If you leave another vaginal bacterial infection untreated the infection could damage your reproductive organs, and the damage could be permanent.

If you start feeling any symptoms such as itching or soreness in the vaginal area you should see your doctor as soon as possible. The sooner you treat any infection the better off you will be. You'll cure the infection a lot quicker before it gets in any areas that are difficult to treat.

Symptoms to watch out for that you will need to see your doctor for are...

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

Once your yeast infection has been correctly diagnosed you can start treating yourself. Your doctor can also check your overall health while you're there so you don't have any health issues that could be contributing to your infection.

A fungal infection will only get worse if you leave it untreated, and you also have the risk of it spreading to other parts of your body. A yeast infection can also be a sign that your health is weak in other areas, and this fact is increased if you start suffering from chronic infections that become more difficult to cure.
