Vaginal yeast infections can thrive and begin with a sugary environment, which is why they are more common in diabetic patients with high "sugar" levels. Antibiotic treatment can decrease the normal bacterial concentrations which naturally help counterbalance the vaginal environment, thus causing an overgrowth of yeast. So as far as diet, avoid a very high sugar or carbohydrate meal. Best wishes

Drink more water

For the UTI prevention one should drink a lot of water, urinate before and after intercourse and never wipe stool forward when you wipe after a BM. Also, avoiding panty liners might help with the yeast and the UTI. Probiotics, yogurt, and cranberry juice would help in your diet as well as a healthy diet without caffeine and with fruits, veggies, grains and lean protein. Also limit simple sugars.

Itching, burning, thick whitish cottage cheese discharge. However, many times, the symptoms of a yeast infection can look like any other number of infections - and if you've never had a yeast infection diagnosed before, it might be better to get it checked out and confirmed by your doctor first.

Candida (overgrowth)

Candida is the usual cause of yeast infections in a person. Candida is always in or on our bodies, in small amounts that are invisible. Candida lives with us, normally. It causes symptoms if it invades into parts of our bodies where Candida is not supposed to go, or it causes symptoms if it is indeed staying where it should but is overgrowing in large amounts (such as with oral or vaginal thrush).

Variety of reasons

Yeasts live in our GI tract as part of the normal collection of organisms. They remain benign until we either alter the composition of the competing organisms or create conditions under which they are able to multiply on, or rarely in, our bodies. Antibiotics, diabetes, changes in vaginal acidity, HIV disease and other factors contribute to susceptibility. It does not lead to HIV infection.

Do women get yeast infections ?

Answered by:

Normal flora...

Most cases of yeast infection are caused by overgrowth of normal yeast (Candida) in the vagina. When an imbalance occurs, such as when the normal acidity of the vagina changes or when hormonal balance changes, yeast can multiply and build up. When this happens, symptoms of an infection may happen. Symptoms include itching and cheesy discharge. Less commonly, yeasts can be spread sexually.
