What Are The Symptoms Of Severe Vaginal Yeast Infection?

August 14, 2019

I’ve got a question here from somebody in
Australia, in Sydney, Australia. What are the symptoms of severe vaginal yeast infection? The symptoms of severe vaginal yeast infection
can be sometimes mistaken for bacterial vaginosis. Symptoms generally include itching and sometimes
severe itching. Itching can be bad and really uncomfortable. I’ve had some patients that
can’t work anymore because of the itching. Itching, redness, discharge is quite common.
Discharge can be clear, a white finished discharge up to a thick, almost like cottage cheese
white discharge, but the two characteristic symptoms would be itching and discharge. BV or bacterial vaginosis is that fishy odor
or the foul-smelling vaginal area. Generally, there’s not a really bad foul smell with a
vaginal yeast infection. It can be a musky sort of odor, but not generally a really fishy
strong sort of smell. We get that more with bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis will
also have more of a whitish or a gray waterish discharge. Itching can be there, but nowhere
near as intense as the vaginal yeast infection, which can be really bad. I’ve also found many
women complain about a lot of pain after intercourse with a Candida yeast infection as well. They
also get them with bacterial vaginosis, but even more so with the vaginal infection. The
key symptoms are those two things. Think about the itching. Think about the discharge. Now some women with Candida yeast infections
also get pelvic pain to different degrees. Many of them can even have a low-grade endometriosis
without even knowing about it. I discovered years ago that many cases of severe endometriosis
are, in fact, caused by a yeast infection. It makes sense because if you’ve got a vaginal
infection and you’re going to treat it with applicators or creams from the doctor and
you’re going to take diflucan or fluconazole recurrently to cure this problem. You’re not
going to cure it with drugs. You’re not going to cure it with creams. All you’re doing is
you’re driving it further up the vaginal area, in through the cervix, into the endometrium,
and then eventually you get endometriosis. So you get basically an inflammation in the
wall of the womb. Yeast actually can get through there and start creating an immune reaction.
Cysts will develop; small cysts develop around that area and that becomes endometriosis. Endometriosis has skyrocketed since tampon
use with many women. I’ve got a female doctor friend who said that she found years ago a
massive connection between endometriosis and chronic vaginal yeast infection, so you need
to bear that in mind, too. You could have a low-grade pelvic pain. If in doubt, make sure that you get checked
out and have a swab and have that cultured for Candida to see whether you’ve got a bacterial
problem in the vaginal area or a yeast infection. Be sure to check out my other videos on how
to get rid of a woman’s yeast infection by doing the “kill and build phase.” This is
a bulletproof way; 99 percent guaranteed to get rid of this vaginal infection. Thanks for tuning in.

    I get severe pain and intense vaginal discomfort vaginal issues during my period or after. Recently I was diagnosed back in December with Cystitis infection and Bacterial vaginitis infection at the same time. I also have a high risk for ovarian cyst, menorrhagia-metorrphaigia, and dysmorrhora. I am a virgin and never had multiple sex partners nor relationships. My itching and burning stings bad at times and in addition I felt pain as if were burning, stabbing, and as if it were from a fire such as pins/needles/or knives that were taken out by fire. I have suffered my description for years not months. Not only vaginal area is effected but all over my body.
