What is a Vaginal Yeast Infection

A vaginal yeast infection, also known as vaginal candidiasis, is a common fungal infection caused by an overgrowth of the Candida fungus. This fungus naturally lives in the vagina, but certain factors can disrupt the balance of bacteria and yeast, leading to an infection.

While vaginal yeast infections are not considered sexually transmitted infections (STIs), sexual activity can contribute to their development. Other factors that may increase the risk of a yeast infection include taking antibiotics, having a weakened immune system, and hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause.

Common Symptoms of a Vaginal Yeast Infection

Common symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection include itching, burning, and irritation in the vaginal area. You may also experience soreness, redness, and swelling of the vulva. Vaginal discharge is another frequent symptom, which can be thick, white, and clumpy, resembling cottage cheese.

Some women may experience pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse or while urinating.

If you are experiencing any of these vaginal yeast infection symptoms, it is important to seek proper diagnosis and treatment. While over-the-counter medications can be effective for some cases, recurrent or more severe yeast infections may require prescription medication.

Common Causes of a Vaginal Yeast Infection

Vaginal yeast infections, also known as candidiasis, are commonly caused by an overgrowth of the fungus Candida, particularly Candida albicans. This imbalance can be triggered by several factors. 

Antibiotic use is a primary cause, as these medications can disrupt the natural balance of bacteria and yeast in the vagina. Hormonal changes, such as those occurring during pregnancy, menstruation, or from the use of birth control pills, can also create an environment conducive to yeast overgrowth. 

Additionally, high blood sugar levels, often associated with diabetes, provide an ideal environment for Candida to thrive. Other contributing factors include a weakened immune system, excessive moisture and heat in the vaginal area, tight or non-breathable clothing, and certain lifestyle habits such as poor diet and high stress levels.

Available Treatment Options

Effective vaginal yeast infection medications can be conveniently accessed through a secure telehealth platform. Treatment for an uncomplicated infection is usually going to be a single dose of oral fluconazole (Diflucan).

There are other antifungals,including creams, ointments, and suppositories, that are available over-the-counter.

Most vaginal yeast infections can be effectively managed with Diflucan. Providers will assess symptoms and medical history to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for each specific case.

Prescription Medication

Prescription antifungal medication, called Diflucan, is often the most effective treatment for vaginal yeast infections. This medication works by targeting the overgrowth of yeast in the vagina, providing relief from symptoms such as itching, burning, and abnormal discharge.

MyInstantMD offers a convenient way to access prescription oral medications like fluconazole, which can effectively treat yeast infections in a single dose.

Our licensed healthcare providers can evaluate your symptoms and prescribe the appropriate medication based on your individual needs. This eliminates the need for an in-person visit to a doctor’s office, saving you time and money while ensuring you receive the necessary treatment quickly and discreetly.

Over the Counter Medications and Self-Care Tips

Over-the-counter medications can provide effective relief for vaginal yeast infections. These antifungal treatments, such as miconazole, clotrimazole, tioconazole, and butoconazole, are available in various forms, including creams, ointments, tablets, and suppositories.

It is crucial to read and follow the instructions carefully when using these medications to ensure proper treatment and avoid potential complications.

In addition to medication, self-care tips can help alleviate symptoms and prevent recurrent yeast infections. Maintaining good hygiene practices, such as keeping the genital area clean and dry, wearing breathable underwear, and avoiding tight-fitting clothing, can promote a healthy vaginal environment.

Probiotics, found in certain foods like yogurt or available as supplements, may help restore the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina, reducing the risk of yeast overgrowth.

Recommendations for Further Vaginal Yeast Infection Treatments When Necessary

In some cases, a short course of antifungal medication may not be sufficient to treat a vaginal yeast infection completely. If symptoms persist or recur after initial treatment, it is important to seek further evaluation and treatment recommendations from a healthcare provider.

MyInstantMD offers convenient access to licensed providers who can assess your symptoms and prescribe appropriate medication if needed, such as a longer course of antifungal therapy or a different type of medication.

Certain factors can increase the likelihood of requiring additional treatment for a vaginal yeast infection, such as having a weakened immune system, taking broad-spectrum antibiotics, or experiencing frequent yeast infections.

By providing a detailed medical history and description of symptoms through MyInstantMD’s secure online platform, patients can receive personalized treatment recommendations tailored to their specific needs, ensuring effective resolution of their vaginal yeast infection.
