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).

It may.


Yeast infections are due to a fungus called Candida which is normally found in the vagina. However, if there is a lack of healthy vaginal bacteria it can lead to overgrowth of yeast. Some causes of overgrowth: antibiotics, ^ estrogen (pregnancy or some birth control pills), malfunctioning immune system, diabetes mellitus as well as friction against vaginal tissues (intercourse) and douching.

Several factors


Several factors can cause chronic yeast infections- 1. Local balance of normal flora is disrupted, typically from the recent user of antibiotics; 2. Impaired immunity- this may be due to steroid use or having other illnesses such as HIV; 3. Misdiagnosis of symptoms in the absence of yeast from testing- adverse drug effects can be mistaken as a yeast infection. Consult your GYN or ID specialist.

Antiviral


Since acyclovir is not an antibiotic it doesn't destroy normal vaginal or oral bacteria and thus doesn't lead to yeast infections.

No


Candida yeast infections are rather common and generally do not cause serious medical conditions in normal men and women, so such infections would not make a person sterile.
