Symptoms of Yeast Infection in Women
What does a yeast infection look like in a woman?
Most women develop a yeast infection at some time in their life. Yeast infections are very common. They are caused by an overgrowth of the yeast naturally found in our body. A yeast infection is most often found in the vaginal area but it can also be found in areas like the mouth or any part of the body where there is moisture. Yeast infections frequently develop in the vaginal area, because it is easily to build up trapped moisture. Multiple factors can contribute to the development of a Yeast Infection including use of tight synthetic underwear, chlorinated pools, dietary habits and use of antibiotics. Yeast infections should be treated at once.
Although the different symptoms of yeast infection in women may differ from one body to another, below are some of the most common and overt symptoms. Left untreated systemic yeast infections can cause a host of additional symptoms in our body including low energy, muscle aches, poor memory and loss of sexual desire to name a few.
The Most Common Signs And Symptoms Of Yeast Infection In Women
This is what a Yeast Infection looks like & feels like in a woman
- Itchy Sensation – If you feel the itch in your vagina, it is hard to assume that you have yeast infection at once. You have to check other symptoms first, before you can conclude. Nonetheless, the itchy feeling that you experience when you are having yeast infection is a lot more serious, because it is combined with a burning sensation that is quite hard to get rid of, even if you scratch it. There are times when the itchy sensation extends to the anal passageway too, especially if the infection is left untreated for a long time.
- Pain – moderate to severe levels of yeast infection can also produce pain in the affected area. The pain normally lasts for several hours in a day, or when doing activities like urinating and intercourse. Your vagina may also show signs of swelling, redness, and rashes, while experiencing the pain. The pain in the vaginal area is also known as Vulvodynia.
- Vaginal Discharge – There are times when women infected with yeast infection will have a discharge that is somewhat like a cottage cheese and without any smell at all. Color can be whitish to yellowish. Nonetheless, having vaginal discharge is not always a solid sign of having yeast infection, because it can also be a symptom of other vaginal disorders.
These are many different signsof yeast infection in women. Professional advice is always recommended to determine a definitive diagnosis.
Yeast infection is sometimes unavoidable to women, especially when pregnant. Although the infection will not cause any harm to the child inside of the womb, pregnant women should immediately let her OB-Gyne know about this, so that proper treatment can be administered.
How is a yeast infection diagnosed?
A vaginal yeast infection is not difficult to diagnose when the overt symptoms above are apparent. A doctor typically asks about your symptoms, makes a diagnosis and most often prescribes antibiotics. However, while antibiotics may treat the overt symptoms, the use of antibiotics can actually create a climate where future yeast thrive and once again overgrow creating re-curing yeast infections. This happens because the antibiotics also kill off the good bacteria in our body that help to keep the yeast in check and prevent it from overgrowth. It is important to supplement your body with a good probiotic following use of antibiotics to build back the beneficial bacteria. The difficulty with a yeast infection is that is often not just limited to the vaginal area. When yeast overgrows, it spreads into many areas of your body and can affect other parts of our body in many ways including weakening our immune system and causing a deterioration of our overall health.
