Odd: If sex partner the same and vaginal infections not prevalent before humira, (adalimumab) then Humira (adalimumab) may be the cause. However, may not be yeast but bacterial vaginosis instead. Yeast usually suppressed by the natural bacteria in the vagina which keep the ph low. Need gyn exam to determine precise cause to get correct treatment. Not to worry if Humira (adalimumab) the problem as there are other drugs nearly identical.
