<strong>Yeast infections</strong> bring about an infection in the vagina and also typically occur in warm, moist parts of the body, such as the mouth and damp areas of skin. It is not linked to having sex but it can from time to time be spread from one sexual companion to the other. Yeast infections can happen to any young woman, and be likely to manifest right prior to getting their monthly periods because of the hormonal changes that goes with the menstrual cycle. <!–more–>

There are two solid reasons why is important to know what causes vaginal yeast infections. First, if you have recurring yeast infections, you can determine what makes you have them and then learn how to prevent them. This is better than always running to your doctor for another set of medications. Second, you can immediately notice the onset of the symptoms and treat yourself with the known remedies, and stop it from aggravating. This way you can resort to milder forms treatment instead of stronger antibiotics than what you have taken previously.

Vaginal yeast infections can occur as a result of injury to the inner vagina, women taking cortisone-related medications such as prednisone and oral contraceptives, and pregnant women too. Also, clothing such as non-cotton, tight, or dirty clothes that trap heat and moisture can cultivate and aggravate yeast infections. Yeast is already present in the vagina but when the number is out of proportion with the bacteria, infection occurs.

What are the common ways to prevent yeast infection? One, use unbleached, undyed cotton underwear and breathable clothes. Another is, be very particular about hygiene especially the vaginal area and last but not the least, avoid the use of douches or perfumed vaginal hygiene sprays  which may also increase a woman’s risk of developing a vaginal yeast infection.

With these in mind, the conventional known remedy is use vaginal wash that is specifically formulated for yeast infections with thorough cleansing of warm water. Avoid sexual contact to aggravate the condition. It is also best to use topically applied medications and ointments around the vagina.
