If you suffer from yeast infections regularly, vConfidence Certified Doctors in Long Island, NY have a yeast infection treatment that can not only clear up your current symptoms but can help prevent future infections.
What is a Yeast Infection?
Yeast infections are very common, with up to 75% of women report having a yeast infection at some point in their life. They are caused by yeast (a type of fungus) called Candida. This yeast can be present in the vagina of healthy women without causing any symptoms. An infection occurs when the normal balance of natural yeast and bacteria is disturbed, causing an overgrowth of yeast in the vagina.
Yeast Infection Symptoms
Common symptoms of a yeast infection include vaginal itching (often severe); vaginal discharge (usually white, thick, chunky, and odorless); red and irritated skin around the opening of the vagina; pain while urinating; and pain during vaginal intercourse.
You should call a doctor immediately if you have lower abdominal pain and a fever higher than 101°F or are pregnant. You should also call a doctor within a week of experiencing unusual vaginal discharge; unusual vaginal itching; pain during sex or urination; continue to have symptoms despite home treatments or nonprescription medicine; or have symptoms return within 2 months of last infection.
Yeast Infection Treatment
In order to get rid of a yeast infection, the vagina must return to normal pH levels. Some mild yeast infections clear up on their own during menstruation, the blood raises the pH of the vagina, which decreases the number of yeast cells present by stopping growth.
Although yeast infections can go away on their own, menstruation will not cure every infection and many people suffer from recurring infections. vConfidence Certified Doctors offer a treatment that can permanently balance the pH levels in the vagina, curing current infections and significantly reducing the chance of getting another one. The treatment naturally balances the pH levels and prevents the outburst of bad bacteria that leads to an infection, all without the use of cream or medication. It can even prevent an outbreak from becoming a more serious infection.
