Most yeast infections are caused by Candida albicans — a specific strand of yeast. These yeast infections are easily treatable. If you’re having recurring yeast infections or problems getting rid of a yeast infection with conventional treatment, then a different version of Candida might be the culprit. A lab test can let your doctor know which type of Candida you have.
The imbalance that allows the overgrowth of yeast to happen can be due to:
- antibiotics (they lower the amount of lactobacillus, or good bacteria, in the vagina)
- uncontrolled diabetes
- weak immune system
- poor eating habits, including a lot of sugary foods
- hormonal imbalance near your menstrual cycle
- lack of sleep
Most women will have yeast infection at least once in their lifetime. Now that she has it, both of you need treatment. Follow doctor's advice and complete the course of medication. Do not have unprotected sex, use a condom if you really must have sex.
For your wife - No douching please, no bubble baths and no scented soaps in the genital area. Drink lots of water and eat healthy food. Sleep well and follow doctor's advice. Good luck
