yeast infections

Vaginal yeast infections affect up to 75% of women at some point in their life!

To say they are common is an understatement, but that doesn't make them any less uncomfortable. Most often caused by an overgrowth of the fungal organism Candida albicans, symptoms include: 

  • Irritation, itching, inflammation
  • Discharge 
  • Pain during urination or intercourse

Furthermore, though it is not considered and STD, yeast infections can be transmitted during sex. Treatment usually involves topical creams and oral antifungal medications, and many women choose to treat their yeast infection with home remedies, of which there are myriad schools of thought regarding the treatment of yeast infections. But it must be said, the best way to mitigate the symptoms of a yeast infection is to avoid them altogether!

Prevention of vaginal yeast infections

At Ahkami Medical Group, we believe in a preventative approach to health care! Therefore we have come up with this list of ways to prevent yeast infections entirely!

It is important to remember that yeast thrives in warm, moist environments. To this end, avoid:

  • Douches, vaginal sprays and lotions
  • Soaking in hot tubs and baths
  • Spending time in wet clothes/bathing suits

Instead, try to:

  • Wear loose-fitting cotton underwear
  • Limit your intake of processed foods
  • Consume foods that contain probiotics such as yogurt 
  • Always clean the genital area thoroughly 

Treating a vaginal yeast infection begins by contacting your doctor

Vaginal yeast infections can be painful and particularly uncomfortable- if you believe you may have one, you should not hesitate to contact a health professional. Most yeast infections respond well and clear up entirely when treated with oral prescription medications and OTC topical antifungal creams. These are both good options that can eradicate yeast infections entirely but it is important to know which to use and how! We can help you there; to this end, give our office in Passaic a call to schedule an appointment today.
