Yes


Many midwifes will recommend massaging the area beneath the vagina and rectum (the perineum) with olive oil in the last weeks of pregnancy to reduce the risk of tears. This should not be dangerous.

No


One has no relation to the other. There are THOUSANDS of different yeasts. A yeast infection is actually an overgrowth of yeast already present, usually related to use of antibiotic or presence of diabetes.

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).

 Yeast infection Diabetes Antibiotic Gastroenterology Human immunodeficiency virus Infection Yeast Organisms Candida

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.

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.
