The vagina is a complicated place

The vagina is a very complicated place, in fact containing 1,000,000,000 bacterial colony forming units per gram of secretions. So keeping the healthy mix of just bacteria, let alone the fungal and other organisms healthy is tricky business! When it comes to infections we first to establish whether this is a new infection or truly the same organism that is not treated from your last gyno visit. Then it's whether the treatment was effective to begin with, and finally, should we look into health factors or medication factors that cause the problem. With birth control pills, there has been a lot of conflicting data, some studies say yeast  infections are caused by birth control pills, others have no link, and others say fewer infections. We also think that being on the birth control pills actually decrease episodes of bacterial vaginosis.
