In brief: Maybe
You may have a problem with estrogen balance.
Estrogen helps the lining of the uterus and vaginal wall. An imbalance of estrogen may leave your vagina and uterus susceptible to an opportunistic infection like yeast. Also, the pH of the vagina is important. An old wives tale which my patients swear by is to put yogurt with active cultures in the vagina. Also, check your blood sugar for diabetes.
