In brief: Low immunity

Imbalance of good intestinal bacteria and lowered immunity cause vaginal yeast infection.
Taking a good probiotic such as MegaFoods MegaFlora plus, vitamin D3 10k IU/day, and a zinc supplement 25 mg/day might help to treat and prevent yeast infection. This may also help avoid meds.
