What is yeast?
It’s not uncommon for pregnant women to have vaginal yeast infections or notice that they are more frequent in occurrence during pregnancy than at any other time in their lives. It is important to first be able to recognize the symptoms before you treat them. Symptoms of vaginal yeast infections include redness, burning, itching and irritation of the vaginal area. Swelling of the vulva may be present in severe cases and this swelling can make urination painful and more frequent. Many women also experience an increase in vaginal discharge which takes on a thick, curdy, white appearance. Sometimes intercourse is found to be quite uncomfortable due to the vaginal irritation a woman is experiencing.
What causes yeast infection?
A yeast-like fungus, also known as candida albicans, normally grows in our gastrointestinal and vaginal tracts. In a healthy state, there is a perfect balance of these organisms and in fact are essential for good health. Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of this fungus. Some common sites of yeast infections include the mouth (oral thrush), the breast and the genital region. Women commonly get a yeast infection after taking antibiotics, as antibiotics can kill the good bacteria that keep the yeast under control, thus overgrowth of yeast occurs and a yeast infection ensues. Just wearing a tight pair of nylons or nylon panties, and even intercourse, are other common causes. Other possibles causes include using birth control pills, HIV infections or consuming large amounts of sugar, bread and yeasts. It’s important to remember that when you have a yeast infection, there is an imbalance in your entire body and you need to restore that balance between the yeast and the bacteria.
