Hi! My symptoms are burning of the vagina, burning when urinating, and discomfort during or after sexual intercourse, irritation of the vagina. My doctor told me that I have yeast infection. Is that fungal infection or it is STD?

Hi! Yeast infections are generally caused by an organism called Candida albicans or Candidiasis and there is no direct evidence that it is passed through sexual intercourse. Almost half of all healthy, sexually active women, and one-third of all pregnant women tested had Candida albicans which may indicate that sexual activity itself may contribute to the growth of Candida albicans. Women who have chronic or recurring yeast infections may need to be treated with vaginal creams for extended periods of time.
