A vConfidence certified doctor in San Diego, CA, can provide yeast infection treatment that helps the vagina to naturally balance pH levels and fight the growth of the fungus before it leads to an infection. vConfidence yeast infection treatment also helps resolve recurring yeast infections by more permanently balancing vaginal pH levels without the use of creams or medications.
What is a Yeast Infection?
The Mayo clinic reports vaginal yeast infections affect up to 3 out of 4 women at some point in their lifetimes. Many women experience at least two episodes, and many will also experience recurring episodes. A yeast infection is caused by too many yeast (fungus) cells growing in the vagina. A small amount of yeast cells is normally present in the vagina but when too many yeast cells are present, a yeast infection develops. A healthy vagina also contains “good” bacteria to help keep the yeast cells under control. When something happens to change the balance of yeast and “good” bacteria, the symptoms of a yeast infection will present themselves. This imbalance can be caused by taking antibiotics, by high estrogen levels due to pregnancy or hormone therapy or by certain health problems like diabetes.
Yeast Infection Symptoms
The symptoms of a yeast infection include itching or soreness in the vagina which can cause pain or burning during sex or when urinating. Some women also have an odorless thick or clumpy white vaginal discharge that has often been described as cottage cheese-like.
