Vaginal yeast infection treatment and prevention


The vaginal yeast infection (candidiasis) is an inflammatory disease of female genital organs, caused by the yeast-like fungi Candida albicans. Virtually, each woman encounters this disease at least once in life.

REASONS FOR OCCURRENCEOFVAGINAL YEAST INFECTION

During the certain period of life of a woman (before menstruations, during pregnancy and change of hormonal background), the microflora becomes very favorable for growth of Candida albicans.

There are also other reasons for occurrence of the vaginal yeast infection:

  • taking hormonal contraceptives;
  • weak immune system;
  • certain diseases (for example, diabetes mellitus);
  • poor hygiene;
  • regular use of aromatized pads, tampons, toilet paper.

The highest incidence of vaginal yeast infection occurs in the summer period, because the pathogenic agent – Candida fungi – lives and replicates at high temperatures (21-37C) and high humidity. Swimming in the sea, pool and any other open water without changing wet underwear will have unpleasant consequences.

SYMPTOMS OF VAGINAL YEAST INFECTION

The presence of this unpleasant disease may be detected according to the following signs:

  • white curdy discharges from the vagina;
  • hypersensitivity to contact with water and urine;
  • rash, reddening, itching and burning in the vaginal area;
  • possible swelling of external genital organs;
  • discomfort during the sexual intercourse and after it.

DIAGNOSIS OF VAGINAL YEAST INFECTION

For diagnosing the candidiasis, you should undergo examination by the gynecologist for detecting the pathogen – Candida fungus. For this, the gynecologist takes a vaginal swab and examines it under the microscope. If the diagnosis is confirmed, the patient is recommended undergoing the urine and blood sugar test, because sometimes the yeast infection is the symptom of diabetes.

The laboratory diagnosis of the yeast infection results in:

  • detection of Candida fungus in the swab with the mucosa of genital organs;
  • detection of the dysbacteriosis, identification of the real condition of the microflora;
  • exclusion of other infections.

METHODS OF TREATMENT OF YEAST INFECTION 

The treatment of the candidiasis in Oxford Medical clinic has several stages. First, the flora culture test is undergone, the sensitivity to anti-fungal drugs is determined, while the targeted treatment is administered according to the obtained results.

Then, in order to eliminate causes for intensive reproduction of the fungi, it is required to:

  • cancel taking antibiotics (if possible);
  • normalize metabolism;
  • restore normal microflora and acidicity of the vagina through bacterial preparations;
  • eliminate dysbacteriosis of the intestine;
  • stimulate immunity.

If the candidiasis is not treated in time, it can become recurrent; that is why do not ignore this disease.
