Frequently Asked Questions
How common are yeast infections during menopause?
"Menopause is often a major cause of vaginal infections. Fluctuating hormone levels can lead to the bacteria in your vagina going haywire. This in turn results in bad bacteria and fungi may be able to grow. Vaginal infections, especially yeast infections, are one of the main symptoms of menopause. "
So I guess from that you could say they are common as menopause is a major cause.
Hope that helped.
can you have vaginal bleeding with a yeast infection?
i havent had a period in 14 months i have been going through perimenopase. i was told after a year of no periods that i was done with menopause. i have a yeast infection after taking an antibiotic. I have diabetes so i get a yeast infection every time i take an antibiotic now.
there is no correlation between yeast infection and uterine/vaginal bleeding - it is your menopause - discover more in:
Do i have a yeast infection?
For the last few days i have been having a lot of pain in that area and it has been really itchy. today it has been less sever then it has been in the last 2 days but i started looking into it and i have everything but the discharge. i am only 17 and it was saying htat yeast infections usually dont happen till after menopause... so that cant be me. i just need some help on what there is that i can do to help.
That is not true about menopause - Yeast infections may be more common around the time of a menstrual period. In a normal menstrual cycle, estrogen deposits glycogen (a form of sugar) in the cells that are found in the lining of the vagina. The release of progesterone causes the cells to shed into the vagina, so the sugar becomes available for yeast to feed on, multiply and grow. Estrogen and sugar production peak at the midpoint between periods, and then progesterone begins to build and sugar is released. Yeast infection symptoms can follow the hormonal pattern of this cycle. Usually, the most severe symptoms occur before the onset of a woman's period when more sugar is available. During and after the flow, symptoms are likely to subside. Additionally, changes in the vaginal pH can disrupt the immune system or destroy the so-called friendly bacteria that populate the vaginal canal and keep the yeast fungus in check.
I get yeast infections on a monthly basis right before my period. Monistat doesn't help me that much anymore, especially since it's not good to use such medications on a regular basis. If you have redness, itching, and a lot of white discharge you probably have a yeast infection. Use yogurt! I know it sounds gross, but take a spoon of yogurt in a bowl and use your finger to put a little bit in your vagina. Then use a tampon, dip it in the rest (make sure you slather enough on there) and insert the tampon. Keep it in for an hour (no more, no less - if you keep it in for more than an hour, the added moisture can make it worse). The yogurt has active cultures that will restore the normal levels of bacteria that control the levels of yeast. it works really well!
Do not douche, douching can upset the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina. Use a mild fragrance-free soap to gently clean yourself once a day. Make sure that you always dry your nether regions properly after a shower. A warm moist environment is where yeast thrive.
sometimes bacteria can transfer from the anus to the vagina during sexual activity. It is important to urinate right after sexual activity to prevent urinary tract and yeast infections (however this preventive measure is more effective for urinary tract infections).
38 and never had a yeast infection?
i'm 38 and have never had a yeast infection; i've been on many antibiotics, used many soaps and body washes (never douched) and i just don't get them. is it possible to never have a yeast infection? out of all of the women i know, i am the only one who has never had one. is it possible i will start to get them after menopause?
Well, it has been said many times that most women will have at least one in their lifetime. You seem to be lucky, so far! Some women suffer with them constantly. Sometimes, it has nothing to do with hygiene, but rather just how your body reacts to changes within the system, as well as how it reacts to things going in.
Count your blessings. There is no way for someone to predict for you if you will get them or not. As all of us women know, our bodies are always changing when it comes to our reproductive system and how our bodies deals with the changes in hormones.
I have heard that menopause can bring about many things, including yeast infections. As long as you go for your yearly paps and everything is fine, don't worry about it.
Bless you with happiness and health!
Is it normal to have a crusty white/yellowish discharge in under wear during menopause?
It is the same as it was before I started my period 40 years ago.Thick white and flakey when it dries.I do not have a yeast infection or any STD. I've had yeast infections several times in my lifetime and this is not one.Has any other woman going through peri or menopause experianced this?
Yes, it's normal. Your body is experiencing hormonal changes at this stage just as it was when were you about to start your period. As long as it's not greenish, grayish, or lumpy then it's no cause for concern.
