What Is A Vaginal Yeast Infection?

August 14, 2019

Hi there, Eric Bakker back to you again. FAQ
No. 5 this time. This person also wishes to remain anonymous. These are typical emails
I get on a regular basis. What is a vaginal yeast infection? I have
a discharge. Could this be a vaginal yeast infection? Well, in my book I explain in Chapter 5 in
detail the difference between the different types of vaginal irritations and conditions
that can affect that part of the female anatomy. That’s suffice it to say this area is a perfect
breeding ground for a yeast infection. It is warm. It is moist. It is dark and it also
has varying levels of secretions in there depending on the hormone level of the female
at any given time. So, it’s very common for females to have a
yeast infection at some stage of their life, and most women, in fact, will at some time
in their life have a yeast infection. Generally, these are self-limiting and not
a problem. It’s only when they become chronic and recurring that there is something further
that needs looking into, and for this reason, I recommend that you have a proper diagnosis
to establish whether you have bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection. In fact, BV or bacterial
vaginosis is more common than yeast infection. It involves bacteria and not fungus and is
a frothy, fish briny smell, whereas the vaginal Candida albicans will have a more cheesy discharge
and have a moldy musky sort of smell. So, if it’s chronic and recurring, do get
yourself checked out and have a good look at my book because there is extensive information
in Candida Crusher on how to overcome a chronic vaginal yeast infection. Thank you.

P.S : doctors gave me hormone shots for letting period come , before my results came , the period lasted for only 2 days , also since long time , may be I was still a child of 10 years and I have that thick white substance in my vagina , I always thought it is a normal thing . but never was ther itching or redness or pain.
