Can wearing tampons cause a yeast infection?

Yes, tampons commonly lead to vaginal infections. Tampons give bacteria and yeast the perfect environment to multiply, while also effecting vaginal pH (altering balance of 'good' to 'bad' bacteria) and preventing vaginal cleaning - many tampons also contain chemicals that may effect vaginal flora. Bacterial infections are more common with tampons, however an imbalance in vaginal bacteria can also put you at higher risk of yeast infections - certain bacteria produce hydrogen peroxide to fight yeast, if not sufficient yeast infecitons may be more common.

How can you tell if you have a vaginal yeast infection or intestinal yeast infection?

This is a vague question but I will answer as best I can. Vaginal yeast infections are commonly associated with itching, burning, odor and a cottage cheese like discharge known as thrush. Intestinal yeast infections are somewhat more difficult to detect, with rectal thrush being a leading indicator. Any yeast infection left untreated can be dangerous. Unchecked, yeast can develop root-like structures known as rhizomes which can penetrate tissue, such as the vaginal or intestinal wall, and allow the candida to enter the bloodstream. Once the yeast becomes systemic, it can attack any organ in the body. There are tests that can be run, and an over-the counter test can be had from most drug stores for vaginal infections. While yeast infections can be difficult to treat, there are prescription, over the counter and holistic treatments that may help.

Is it okay to use tampons if you just got over a yeast infection?

Yes, it is okay. Tampons pose significant risk of vaginal infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis and yeast infections by altering vaginal pH, preventing vaginal cleaning, encouraging high bacterial growth, and may brands contain chemicals that may also increase risks. Thus if you're prone to vaginal infections or if your vaginal flora is a little off-balance it does increase risks, and certainly you shouldn't use tampons during a vaginal infection. Otherwise it's okay.
