Yeast Infections in Women

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Yeast infections are very prevalent among women. Recently, studies have shown that almost 75 percent of the female population will contract yeast infection at least once in their lifetimes. And about 45 percent of all women will develop recurrent yeast infection throughout their lives.

 

Symptoms of yeast infection

 

The following may be experienced when you have a yeast infection:

 

  • irritation, itching or soreness of the vaginal lips
  • vaginal discharge (whitish to yellowish which looks like cheese)
  • burning sensation during urination or sexual intercourse
  • rash
  • copious foul smelling discharge

 

What to do when you have a yeast infection

 

It is imperative that you seek medical consultation whenever you notice something any of the symptoms described above, especially so if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have a yeast infection, the doctor can diagnose it and can give you the most appropriate and effective treatment.

 

Unfortunately though, a lot of women engage in self medication when they believe they have contracted a yeast infection. However, it has been observed that most of these women are actually not suffering from a yeast infection. Thus, self treatment of a misconceived condition may put them at higher risk of developing more severe infections and may even aggravate their condition.

 

How yeast infection is diagnosed

 

Your doctor or gynecologist usually performs a wet prep test. This procedure involves taking a swab from your vaginal area and putting the specimen under a microscope to determine the causal organism. A yeast culture may also be done by your doctor. This entails culturing a specimen sample taken from your vagina to confirm the presence of yeast.

 

Recurrent infections – is it normal?

 

If you are suffering from frequent yeast infections, you need to be monitored closely by your doctor, as these can indicate a more serious underlying condition like diabetes or any immunodeficiency syndrome. Proper diagnosis or treatment of this underlying medical condition can prevent yeast infection from occurring recurrently.

 

How to treat yeast infections

Yeast infections may be treated topically (creams) or orally (pills). Your doctor can recommend the best form of treatment for you.

 

Creams that are applied topically may give lesser adverse effects and minimized drug interaction potential as compared to oral medications. You may also be able to readily purchase over the counter most of these topical therapies unlike oral medications which can only be bought with a doctor’s prescription. Although less convenient to apply, topical medications tend to alleviate symptoms rather faster than the oral forms do.
