Yeast infections. First, let’s begin with the women. Over 30 million women a year are diagnosed with them. That’s 75% of all adult women who will have had at least 1 vaginal yeast infection according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Of the 75%, 40-45% develop 2 or more infections in their lifetime. Yeast infections can be passed on from kissing also. Yes. It’s true. The bacteria is passed on in the saliva, and can cause stomach discomforts and symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, and can develop into mouth sores. Make sure the person you are kissing brushes, flosses, and uses antiseptic mouthwashes often. And when we’re talking vaginal yeast infections, we’re not talking about just one kind…
Vaginal yeast infections are many. A common characteristic of Candidiasis or Vaginal Candida is a vaginal smell of beer or bread, at times fishy, and a vaginal discharge with redness and itching all around the genitalia.
Leukorrhea is a yeasty infection when normal vaginal acidity is disrupted. leucorrhea symptoms are of inflamed, itchy vaginal tissues, a yeasty foul discharge, and sex is painful.
Trichomonas is known as a parasite passed on during intercourse. With Trichomonas the discharge is foamy, severely itchy, yellow and has a foul odor.
Vulvitis is an allergic reaction, fungal or bacterial infection that brings on a vulva inflammation. Vulvitis shows signs of swelling, itching, and redness with fluid-filled blisters in the vagina.
Bacterial Vaginosis– grows and thrives when vaginal pH is disturbed and thrown out of balance. A woman must be careful if she has anal sex. If fecal matter enters the vaginal tract, this bacteria can bring upon Bacterial Vaginosis and develop moderate itchiness and have a foul, fishy odor with white discharge. It may be surprising to many, but men get yeast infections! That’s right. As much as 13-16% of men get yeast infections. If a man has exposed himself, and had unprotected intercourse with an infected partner he can develop a Candida Penis Infection.
Candida Penis Infection infects the tip of the penis. And this infection is like a ping-pong effect. When one person gets treated, the other re-infects that partner and the infection keeps bouncing back and forth between them. This infection can cause: prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), frequent urination, an inability to urinate, a dribble effect when urinating, and even a loss of sexual interest. Men who are most at risk are those with Diabetes.
So what are the causes of yeast infections? Using antibiotics for long periods of time, or prolonged exposure to antibiotics that weaken the immune system and cause imbalanced hormones.
