What is a Yeast Infection?

It’s uncomfortable and embarrassing, right? That is not all you should know about a yeast infection. Let’s take a further look at what is going on down there.

A yeast infection is one of the most common types of vaginal infections. In fact, it affects at least 75% of women at some point in life. That statistic right there goes to show that you are certainly not alone!

Having a yeast infection means that there is too many yeast cells growing in the vagina, thus causing irritation. This overgrowth of fungus is known as Candida albicans. Truth be told, there is always going to be yeast present, alongside healthy bacteria. It is the overgrowth that causes the irritation. While they are certainly bothersome and itchy, we are happy to report that they are usually not serious and treatment is easy.

What typically causes this overgrowth? There are actually a number of things that can trigger one. This includes:

  • Douching
  • Tight clothing
  • Antibiotic use
  • Tight clothing

All of the above can mess with vaginal pH balance, which can allow yeast to thrive. Other causes may include poor sleeping habits, stress, eating habits, and illness.
