Vaginal Yeast Infection And What Every Woman Should Know

A vaginal yeast infection is an infection of the vagina that causes intense itching, irritation and burning of the vulva, the area around the vagina, with a typically thick and white discharge that looks like cottage cheese and does not have a bad smell. 





It is caused by an overgrowth of the fungus Candida.  

Some other symptoms are; redness, and swelling of the vagina and the vulva, pain when urinating, pain during sexual intercourse and soreness.


Women and girls of all ages can get vaginal yeast infections. Almost half of women have two or more infections. Yeast infections are easy to treat, but it is important to see your doctor if you think you have an infection.

 Yeast infection symptoms are similar to other vaginal infections and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). 


THE MOST AFFECTED GROUP
Some women are more at risk for yeast infections. Yes, your risk for yeast infections is higher if you are pregnant, using a type of hormonal birth control that has higher doses of estrogen, diabetic and your blood sugar is not under control, you douche or use vaginal sprays, if you recently took antibiotics medicines, or have a weakened immune system. 

Your vagina may have small amounts of yeast at any given time without causing any symptoms. But when too much yeast grows, you can get an infection.


SEX AND YEAST INFECTIONS
A yeast infection is not considered an STI, because you can get a yeast infection without having sex. But you can get a yeast infection from your sexual partner. 

Condoms and dental dams may help prevent getting or passing yeast infections through vaginal, oral, or anal sex. Avoiding intercourse when a woman has symptoms of a yeast infection is the best way to prevent spreading of the infection.

 Using treatment when you do not actually have a yeast infection can cause your body to become resistant to the yeast infection medicine. 

This can make actual yeast infections harder to treat in the future. If your partner is a man, the risk of infection is low. Men who haven't been circumcised are at higher risk.


INFECTION, PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING

During pregnancy, it's safe to treat a yeast infection with vaginal creams or suppositories. Do not take the oral tablet to treat a yeast infection during pregnancy.
 It may cause birth defects. 

Yeast infections can happen on your nipples or in your breast, commonly called "thrush" from breastfeeding. Yeast thrives on milk and moisture. 


PREVENTION OF YEAST INFECTION

The following steps can be taken to lower your risk of getting yeast infections; do not douche. Douching removes some of the normal bacteria in the vagina that protects you from infection. change tampons, pads, and panty liners often, do not wear tight underwear, pantyhose, pants, or jeans. These can increase body heat and moisture in your genital area. 

Wear underwear with a cotton crotch, change out of wet swimsuits and workout clothes as soon as you can. After using the bathroom, always wipe from front to back.

If you don't wash it, your pussy will stink. Self cleansing kor, that's rubbish. When a guy fucks you, his dick will be coated with white vaginal discharge and u call it 'cum', that's rubbish, it's a thing of pride when a man fucks u and his dick comes out shiny as if it was dubbed in olive oil, that's a clean pussy.

It's actually very wrong to insert bacterial infected fingers into the vagina
Simply rinse with water...., either warm or cold
And avoid keeping the area moist

Ladies please kindly stop inserting your bacterial infected fingers into your vagina
It does more harm than good
I remember one babe in school
She would almost dedicate a bucket of water for that region
Bend out and be seriously scrubbing

Ehen!

Where is that person that sent in a post, telling us to douche our vaginas?

The vagina is not a sterile place, but then, it's also self cleansing.

Using only water in there would do. Just make sure that the water and your hands are clean, and that should be while bathing. Soaps and all those scented soaps abi wetin, mess with the vaginal pH and douching push bacteria from surrounding skin up the canal.

If you have a foul smelling vaginum, please, go see a doctor. Using perfumed stuff to make it smell good, just worsens the whole thing.

And all those taking over-the-counter medication, especially when they have issues down there, know that you're at risk of multi drug resistance. Popping antibiotics like it's candy. There are tests carried out to determine the drugs which said microorganisms are sensitive to and those they are resistant to. So imagine taking pills that said bacteria is able to resist.
First off, you won't get better.
Secondly, by the time you finally go see a doctor, it'll be harder to treat.
Thirdly, you're at risk of getting a super infection.

Enough said mbok.

There is normal vagina discharge at different times of the month and sometimes no discharge. The discharge can be watery, whitish, sticky and viscous, yellowish etc depending on the time of the month. This is what some people use to determine their child spacing by knowing when they ovulate.

My dear the thing tire me ooo. It is so wrong to dip your fingers into your pussy to wash, there is nothing there to wash.

Anonymous said...

Some men will be using their dirty fingers to finger their women's vaginas. Very unhygienic, some will keep dirty long nails for this. Hygiene is not just about cleaning the vagina, but what goes in there should be clean. Some men will sleep with one woman and without washing off hours later sleep with another. All these are dirty disease causing habits. Washing of hands imperative. That is why applaud the couples on WNB who usually bath before their shenanigans. If you can't bath at least wash your hands.

Anonymous said...

Most douches are sold in stores as prepackaged mixes of water and vinegar, baking soda, or iodine. You squirt the douche upward through a tube or nozzle into your vagina. The water mixture then comes back out through your vagina.

Douching is different from washing the outside of your vagina during a bath or shower. Rinsing the outside of your vagina with warm water will not harm your vagina. But, douching can lead to many different health problems.Most doctors recommend that women do not douche.

Once you have protected sex and you are careful, the natural mucus never smells and it's natural for every woman to have a discharge cos some of them are fertile.

It's also advisable that every sexually active woman undergoes a pap smear once in thre years.

leucorrhoea - that is what the whitish / yellowish discharge is called. It can be caused by eating incompatible foods. lime drink, aloe vera, are good cures.

Anon 12:33 you lie...your pussy smells. What is wrong with white stuff in the vagina? That is how God made it, as long as it is not smelly vagina discharge. Even men discharge their own white stuff in form of semen. You need to re-educate yourself.

Go and see a gynecologist. You have a staph infection which causes infertility.

Please while bathing, I spread my legs well and run water in my Vjay, use my finger and wash. I sometimes(no everyday) use mild soap to wash the outer parts of my vjay. No odour down there and I drink 1 liter of pineapple and watermelon juice made by me everyday so I taste so good, kai shege. My man licks his tongue when he's making love to me as if he's eating a sweet meal. It's kind of funny how he keeps saying you're so sweet and licking his lips. I later told him the secret about the juice.

Plus I drink at least 5 bags of green tea a day. The disadvantage of the juice is that you will be getting wet anyhow, I sit in the office and be getting wet without thinking about sex, that's why I carry panty liners and baby wipes in my bag all the time cus I have to clean up if I feel too wet and change my panty liner. It was my cousin that thought me this ike business lol. I stop for about a month if the wetness gets so much then continue drinking the juice cus my man enjoys the swim and told me he can never drown whenever I tease him about drowning in there, he made it clear that he is a good swimmer and yes he is. In all, it's a plus when you have got beauty and brains and still be clean down there.

Yes douching is knda wrong madam anon, your vagina has a normal flora produced by mycobecterium lacto bacilli wch produces lactic acid which makes it difficult for Candida albicans to breed.just rinse wit normal water and toilet soap (deodorant) not the whole tonning and antiseptic soaps we have everywhere.
