5 unexpected reasons for yeast infections


1. Are you experiencing yeast infections?

 Find out everything you need to know about the causes of a yeast infection, which is a fungal infection brought on by an excessive growth of the fungus candida albicans. Your vagina usually has a healthy balance of yeast, including candida, and bacteria. Overgrowth of yeast, on the other hand, can result in an infection.

2.High blood sugar levels

 It's important to know that yeast thrives on sugar, so high blood sugar levels can cause yeast to grow too much in the vagina. The body's excess sugar can serve as a breeding ground for the fungi. Additionally, excessive sugar can disrupt the intimate area's pH balance, allowing the yeast to flourish.

3. Antibiotics 

Several bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics. It has the potential to either stop or slow the growth of the bacteria, which can make things more complicated. However, one of the potential negative effects of taking antibiotics is the onset of a yeast infection. In addition to killing a wide range of bacteria, broad-spectrum antibiotics can also kill healthy bacteria in the vagina, which can lead to yeast overgrowth.

4.Pantyliners According to the

 National Women's Health Resource Center, despite the fact that there is no solid evidence to suggest that pantyliners can cause yeast infections, the National Women's Health Resource Center recommends against the use of pantyliners by women who are susceptible to ongoing yeast infections. This is due to the fact that pantyliners have the potential to trap moisture and obstruct air flow, creating moist conditions in which yeast can thrive.

5. Scented products for personal hygiene 

Medical News Today reports that the use of intimate washes and other types of vaginal cleansers is linked to a 2.5-fold increased risk of UTIs and a 3.5-fold increased risk of bacterial infections. According to the health website, gel sanitizers were linked to an eightfold increased risk of yeast infection and an almost twentyfold increased risk of bacterial infection.

6.Mistakes with underwear 

Tight or synthetic underwear can trap heat and moisture, increasing the likelihood of yeast infections. However, experts advise wearing underwear made of cotton or silk because they allow moisture to evaporate. Also, make sure your underwear aren't too tight.
