Yeast Infecitons Cure Means Treating The Underlying Cause

Vaginal yeast infections are typically mild, respond quickly to over the counter medications, and often will resolve without treatment at all. However, when they are persistent, complicated by other vaginal conditions, or at times of travel or date night, a yest infection is not tolerated well by very many women. In women the mostly gradual, but occasionally precipitous drop in estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, progesterone, and the other hormones of the menstrual cycle, can result in

the genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), including the chronic condition of vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA). The atrophy rises the vaginal pH and the cells of the lining of the uterus lose the ability to produce the glycogen food supply for the healthy vaginal bacteria. With the vaginal changes of the GSM and VVA, the symptoms begin to increase including vaginal dryness, irritation, itching, infection, painful sex, lack of arousal, lack of being able to maintain arousal, and the propensity to have yeast infections. Because the sexual consequences are so important, the sexual side effects can include diminished physical and emotional sexual satisfaction, and relationship issues. Thus yeast infections in menopause can progress from an annoyance to a significant medical issue. Just treating the fungal infection itself will not always resolve the issue. Restoring vaginal health with better nutrition, appropriate use of lubricants, and treatments of the menopausal state such as with Osphena, estrogen, or MonaLisa. Come in to gab with your gyno to see if you are doing all you can to prevent yeast infections in the future.
