Frequent Yeast Infections Does It Mean Hiv Or Other Immune Disorder
Conceivable: But you do not say if you are a man or woman, where the yeast infections are occurring. If this is vaginal, not necessarily due to immune disorder. If oral, get checked asap for hiv, etc. When yeast vaginitis recurs frequently you may be becoming reinfected by your male partner, who should smear anti-fungal cream on his penis while you are being treated for your vaginitis.
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more

Girlfriend on co-amoxiclav think she developed a yeast infection we had intercourse now I am showing symptoms does this mean I have a weak immune syst?
Not necessarily: You don't say what your symptoms are, but it is entirely possible for your sexual partner to transmit fungal colonization to your penis and if you have an abrasion or other issue for you to become symptomatic. This has nothing to do with your overall immune function. Sounds like your anxiety disorder may be functioning. Good luck and best
Caught a yeast infection after having sex does this mean I have a weak immune system worried I have underlying cancer or something horrible help!
Educate yourself: Any guy can catch a yeast infection down there from a girl or just being himself. It's got nothing to do with your immune system. It's common. You're almost a grown man. One of the finest gifts you can give yourself and the women in your life is to be a responsible, educated lover. Start using condoms and read a couple of good books. And welcome to the new joys and responsibilities of being a man.
Immune system: Having HIV decreases your overall immune system making it harder to fight of infections. This puts you at higher risk of things like yeast infections. It should respond to typical yeast treatments. With hiv, i'd recommend a vaginal culture to be sure it is just a yeast infection. This helps with treatment plans also.
Had 2 yeast infections within 5 months. I am hiv neg took 10 hiv tests up to 9 months last exposure. What could it be the cause, it is really stressy?
Not unusual...: HIV usually does not predispose to increased yeast infections, despite what you have read about it. Having 2 yeast infections in 5 months isn't unusual at all. Having 10 HIV tests in 9 months is excessive. All tests more than 3 months after your last exposure were unnecessary. Don't have any more tests. See your doctor if your yeast infections increase to more than 4 times a year.

No hx of DM or HIV. Recurrent yeast infections. 4 in the last 5 months. Treated each time with improvement. How to treat plus maintenance?
Thorough evaluation: Recurrent yeast infections does not have to mean diabetes. Remember the successful treatment means the antifungal medication and clean underwear everyday, sometimes completely new underwear. You need to then get the flora back to normal. You are not alone and this does happen to many patients. Don't get discouraged. Watch what you are eating and sometimes take antibiotic with antifungal.See 1 more doctor answer
