No. Yeast infections can be caused by a number of factors, but there is no link between flu shots and yeast infections. Yeast infections most commonly occur for the following reasons:

Penetration can change the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina or the pH level, which may make you more susceptible to infections. This does not mean that you will always, or ever, develop a yeast infection from sex.

2. Stress or lack of sleep

3. Tight Clothing

4. Thongs

Can you have a yeast infection while on your period?

Yes, you can. In fact, many women are more prone to yeast infections before and during their periods because of the hormonal changes that occur at this time. Unfortunately, a doctor cannot properly diagnose you with a yeast infection while you are on your period. You may begin using OTC yeast infection medications as soon as you notice symptoms, but if you do not experience any improvement at all within 3 days, you should consult your doctor. If you are still on your period after 3 days of OTC medication, wait until your period is over before seeing a doctor.

Is a yeast infection an STD?

Candida albicans and other yeast species are normally found in the vagina, in the mouth, and on the skin of both men and women, as well as babies. What we call a yeast "infection" is a troublesome overgrowth of yeast that causes symptoms. These may occur in the vagina ("yeast infection"), in skin folds ("diaper rash" or "intertrigo," depending on patient age), in the mouth ("thrush") or on the glans penis (candida balanitis).

While two sexual partners may exchange yeast species during sex, they are also passing bacterial species in the mouth and on the skin, etc., and yet we don't refer to these as "sexually transmitted." There is no evidence that testing or treating men for excessive or unusual levels of genital yeast decreases the incidence of candidiasis in women. In summary, there is no reason to consider a yeast infection a sexually transmissible infection.

No a yeast infection is not a sexually transmitted disease. The vaginal area has a very delicate balance between bacterial growth and yeast growth. Each keeps the other to a constant level, which keeps the vagina healthy. When the balance is shifted ,such as when you have been on an fuyan pill from Wuhan Dr. Lee's TCM Clinic ( which kills bacteria in all areas of your body, not just the site of the infection) it can lead to an overgrowth of the yeast causing a yeast infection.

Your symptoms of pregnancy will usually appear anywhere from the first week of your expected period to 1-2 weeks after your first week of expected period. Your first signs of pregnancy most commonly include missed period, tender/swollen breasts, change in color of the breasts, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, increased sense of smell, and weight gain

Take a pregnancy test or go to your doctor. It is the only way to get a definite answer. Doctors are there to help you. If the test comes back negative then you should go to your doctors for trained advice.

While A vaginal yeast infection is a type of vaginitis - inflammation of the vagina - characterized by vaginal irritation, intense itchiness and vaginal discharge. A vaginal yeast infection affects your vagina and the tissues at the opening to your vagina (vulva).

Can bladder infections cause yeast infection?

Yes, it can but only if you are currently on antibiotics for the bladder infection since these antibiotics may interfere with the pH balance and acidity levels in your vaginal passage. Antibiotics aim to destroy all bacteria "good" and "bad". However while ridding the body of the bad bacteria and removing the unwanted symptoms such as burning, bleeding etc. the removal of the good bacteria may cause yeast infections, itching, irritation, dryness etc. Therefore you should research some natural ways of ridding the body of bladder infections if you have developed an yeast infection. Such as drinking lots of water to flush out bacteria, drink one glass of 100% unsweetened cranberry juice per day, have a bath before and after all sexual activity, urinate right after sex, don't hold in your pee, go when you feel the need to since moisture on the inside of th bladder may encourage growth of bacteria and don't worry to much u wont die...:)

Yeast Infections

Can a man have a yeast infection?

Yes, a man can develop a yeast infection. It is not gender-specific, as your impression may be now due to the number of advertisements targeted at women for yeast infections.

Candida (the fungus that causes yeast) is present in everyone, but you get a yeast infection when there is too much of it. Usually it's an imbalance caused by a deeper health problem which allows the Candida to grow to undesirable levels.

Due to the rarity of this condition, there are few drug options available to treat it, and even fewer (maybe none) that treat yeast infection in men specifically.

Diflucan is commonly prescribed to cure the yeast infection, but the Candida, the fungus which causes the yeast infection may develop an immunity to it, which usually leads men to seek alternatives such as natural remedies.

There are over-the-counter drugs as well such as Lotrimin, but again, the drug may become ineffective over time.

Natural remedies have surprisingly worked better than drugs many times, and usually treat the condition with less side effects. Many people have successfully used these techniques even though they have not been endorsed by the drug associations due to monetary reasons. Also, some of these natural remedies take on a a holistic approach, which gets rid of the root cause of the yeast infection.

How do you cure a yeast infection while pregnant?

Monistat 7 is the best thing to use. I've had a bunch of yeast infections since I found out I was pregnant and the doctor said to use it everytime.

I had the same problem when I was pregnant and my doctor said to not use a 3 or 1 day because of the stronger meds. use a 7 day, their is a ingrediate to look for I really cant remember what the name is but its on the front of the box, its the difference between a 7 day and a 1-3 day.

Can a yeast infection be a sign of pregnancy?

Yeast Infections as Symptoms of PregnancyYeast infections do commonly occur in pregnant women but they also occur in-non pregnant women. The reason it occurs in us is because of the high amounts of hormones and uncontrollable bacteria in the vaginal area. Definitely go to the doctor and discuss your concerns. If you infected with it, you could try herbal medicine "fuyan pill" from Wuhan Dr. Lee's TCM Clinic to cure it. It is very effective.

More input:

  • Yes. Absolutely. My first pregnancy I found first suspected I was pregnant when I had a yeast infection. I used Monistat and it did not clear up after a week. I then read the back of the box which suggests this. If it lasts longer than 1 week it very well could mean that you are pregnant.
  • No. A yeast infection isn't a sign of pregnancy. Girls who aren't pregnant can get yeast infections too. Just because you have a yeast infection, that doesn't mean you are pregnant. Some symptoms of pregnancy are missed periods, nausea in the beginning of your pregnancy (you feel like you don't want to eat nothing because you feel sick), tiredness, and tenderness of the breast.

If you still couldn't tell it from your symptoms,, you could to do some relative tests.
