Yeast infection


  • Many bacteria and fungi inhabit the vagina. Under normal circumstances, there is a balance among them. If the balance is disrupted, an overgrowth of one of the organisms may occur. When the balance tips in favor of candida, a vaginal Yeast Infection may occur. Antibiotics can kill off the good bacteria in the vagina and are a common cause of Yeast Infections. Anything that stresses the immune system, such as diabetes, may also cause yeast infection.
