The Causes Of Yeast Infections

Aug 17, 2007
It's important to understand what causes vaginal yeast infections, so that you can avoid (as much as possible) getting one, or more in your life. As always prevention is better than a cure!

- Vaginal yeast infections are caused by little nasties called Candida albicans, which are present in your vagina. If the yeast multiples it will generally turn into a vaginal yeast infection.
- This multiplication is caused by a change in your vaginal environment.
- Increased heat, sexual transmission, changed sugar levels and your hormones can cause a change in your vaginal environment.
- Antibiotics can often be the culprit of a changed vaginal environment.
- Non-cotton clothes can also change you vaginal environment and provide a nice place for bacteria to grow. In this case you should avoid non-cotton underwear and be weary of stockings. In some case you might find it beneficial to go completely without underwear.
- Chemicals can also change your vaginal environment. Chemicals can be found in the inks and perfumes in your clothes. Perfumed toilet papers can also be favourite of vaginal yeast infections, as well as scented pads and tampons.
- Using condoms when having sex can also change your vaginal environment. The lubricants that condoms are packaged with are the main culprits. There are several condoms on the market, which are not paired with chemicals and lubricants.
- There has been some evidence to suggest that if you cut yeast products down or out of your diet you are less likely to find yourself with a vaginal yeast infection.
- Others have found that cutting down the amount of sugar in your diet will also lessen your risk.
- Birth control pills and natural hormones can also put your vaginal environment out of wack.
- The uses of steroids (even people who use them for arthritis) also experience more vaginal yeast infections then those that don't. This can also be seen in people who use steroids for asthma experience yeast infections in their mouth (from their puffer).
- Injury to you vagina (or vaginal area) can also change you vaginal environment. So if you have a rather rough sexual experience you need to ensure that you are suitable lubricated.
- Vaginal yeast infections can also be transmitted sexually. Males can carry yeast infections and many do not show symptoms. Lesbians also have many problems transmitting vaginal yeast infection to each other.
- If you have a weakened immune system because you have other concerns you are also open to a vaginal yeast infection. In this case you need to be weary.
