Low Estrogen And A Yeast Infection

August 16, 2019

Hi, there. Erik Bakker again from Candida
Crusher. Here’s FAQ No. 4. This patient prefers to remain anonymous. Can low estrogen cause a yeast infection? Yes, absolutely. Having a high or low estrogen
level can predispose a female towards a vaginal yeast infection. Estrogen has quite an interesting
effect on the vaginal tissue. So when there’s not enough estrogen, the tissue can be quite
dry and the person’s much more prone to getting a bacterial or a yeast-related infection. And if a person has too much estrogen or has
too much mucous secretion, they can actually also favor the reproduction of many yeast
in this area. Many females will notice an increase in yeast infections before their
period or around perimenopause time for this reason when changes in estrogen occur. So, yes, to answer your question, a low estrogen
can cause a yeast infection.

    +Candida Crusher Hi Erik. I just ran into you and your channel last night. I've been reading up on the articles on your website and only wish I had found you earlier! I read about the Dutch cycle mapping hormone testing. I see that it can be done with those who have had a partial hysterectomy. What if one has had a total hysterectomy? Is there a comprehensive way to test hormones without a cervix (but still has ovaries)?

    I am keeping records of how I feel and where I may be at in terms of my monthly cycle/ovulation, although obviously it is not as clear cut. Also, now that I've had a hysterectomy, I've been diagnosed with BV. This is distressing given that I was not one of those women that had female infections of this sort (I can count 2 in my whole life). I'm concerned about my hormones, cortisol levels, and candida.

    Hi Dr Bakker, so I was just tested and found out that my hormone levels are off and my obgyn also thinks I have polycystic ovarian disease. My question is have you heard of symplex f and would you recommend it for off balanced hormones? Also, can yeast infections affect hormones?
