An organism called "Candida albicans" is found in the vaginas of

almost all women. When it gets out of balance by other organisms in

there, it multiplies. It is caused by antibiotics and douches,

tight or dirty clothing, chemicals, and can be transmitted through

sex. For more details, check out
