The Surprising Thing That Could Be Causing Your Yeast Infection

August 12, 2019


every day habit could lead to a yeast infection is it a being a night owl be taking a long shower RC consuming too much salt nearly 75% of all adult women have had at least one yeast infection in their lifetime but could you be causing it to happen so that pop quiz had a lot of our audience members guessing but not doctor Nita has the answer to the pop quiz yes so what do you think it’s actually a being a night oh you got it so being a night owl apparently being a night owl can cause you to have not not get enough sleep and when you don’t get enough sleep you have a weakened immune system according to some research that can throw your vaginal pH off making you more susceptible to vaginal yeast infections and then you have a weaker immune system so your body can’t fight it off so you get a yeast infection and so you get the burning and itching and irritation maybe a little watery discharge maybe the thick white cottage cheese like discharged without any odor but in any case if you get one of those and you know you can do it over-the-counter cream or your doctor can prescribe something but in addition to lack of sleep also a poor diet or an illness our pregnancy can also predispose you to vaginal yeast infections you

    I love the show.It has tought me ALOT.I have had vulva cancer twice.My chances are 50% higher to get it, as I lost my mom to breast cancer.My problem is infections ?? Or something in every place I have skin touching skin. Under my breast, legs area.I live with this?? So painful, oozing out, staying wet daily.My Dr. Has written every prescription out there. No help. 1 Dr. A few years back wrote me an ointment that had a steroid in it. Can't remember the name.tried everything o.t.c.the ointment stopped it.only thing. Can't remember name of it.now it's so bad I have to keep paper towels everywhere. The amount of liquid that comes out in a day , it's dark and I can smell it. Like it comes back before I get dressed from shower.Can anyone have any advice. My current. Dr. Refuses to give me anything with a steroid.I am severely disabled, it's getting harder and harder for me to keep up with it.please, any advice would be so grateful for any ideas ?? My e mail is [email protected] me.
