Does Flonase Cause Yeast Infection
Several factors: Several factors can cause a yeast infections- 1. Local balance of normal flora is disrupted, typically from the recent use of antibiotics; 2. Impaired immunity- this may be due to steroid use or having other illnesses such as diabetes or hiv; 3. Misdiagnosis of symptoms in the absence of yeast from testing- adverse drug effects can be mistaken as a yeast infection.
Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
Yeast sites vary: Yeast infections usually occur in the oral passages, vagina, foreskin and penis, and in the skin where there are creases (armpits, groin, breasts). Taking antibiotics kills the good bacteria allowing the yeast to grow. High blood sugar and taking cortisone type medications also favor yeast growth. Yeast can be transmitted during sexual actvity as well. Warm moist areas favor yeast growth.
No: The best documented risk factors for spontaneous abortion are advanced maternal age, maternal smoking, and previous history of spontaneous abortion. Most miscarriages are caused by embryonic chromosomal abnormalities and exposure to teratogens. Certain maternal infections can result in spontaneous abortion. However, vaginal yeast infection (candidiasis) is not one of them.
See below: I assume you refer to yeast vaginitis. Effective treatments include vaginal preparations that contain nystatin, miconazole, clotrimazole, butoconazole, terconazole and tioconazole. Most of these are available over the counter without a prescription. There is no way to get rid of yeast vaginitis "naturally".
Rarely: Yeast infections usually only grow on the surface of mucous membranes (mouth, throat, vagina) ; skin. Rarely, they can migrate up the urethra ; cause bladder infection in wh/case you might have cramping. Persons on peritoneal dialysis can get yeast peritonitis ; they would have cramping. A intra-abdominal infection w/yeast (post surgery; bowel spill) may have cramps. Otherwise its uncommon.
Highly unlikely: Unless the condom had been open some time & become contaminated, highly unlikely that it could cause a yeast problem. Remote possibility: if condom had spermicidal agent on it, that may have somehow upset the balance between yeast and normal bacteria in the vagina, but have never seen that reported before.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: A vaginal yeast infection is caused by the fungus candida.Your vagina naturally contains a balanced mix of yeast and bacteria.But disruption of the healthy balance can result in an overgrowth of yeast. A yeast infection can be sexually transmitted, especially through oral-genital sexual contact. However, yeast infection isn't considered a sexually transmitted infection. Hope this helped :].
Probiotics: That's an interesting question. Generally, probiotics can help to replenish or maintain the normal flora, and keep things in balance. However, there is some evidence that probiotics may cause some imbalance, because this extra 'good bacteria' uses up oxygen. This may then affect the normal balance and precipitate yeast overgrowth. However, this is not established, it's just a theory.
