Recurrent yeast: Vaginal yeasts are rarely acquired from other persons. Yeasts are normal in our intestines and often in the vagina.

Sounds Just Yummy: Everything is fine? Not! You say you HAVE an expired Mirena (levonorgestrel)? Does that mean it's still in there?

Not because of that: You can get a yeast infection because they are incredibly common but not for that reason; I don't consider yeast infections contagious because we all have yeast (candida albicans) already living on our skin, in our intestines and most women probably have a bit vaginally; whether it progresses to an infection has more to do with your diet, immune health, antibiotic use ; balance of other flora. ...Read more
