Your doctor will perform a pelvic exam to check for swelling and discharge when diagnosing you. Another way your doctor might diagnose you is by utilizing a swab to take a liquid sample from your vagina and then take a look under a microscope to see if yeast is causing your vaginal infection.
There are a variety of things that can cause you to experience yeast infection symptoms. Some of the common causes of these symptoms are pregnancy, stress, having your period, lack of sleep, certain kinds of diseases or conditions like diabetes and HIV/AIDS, hormonal changes during periods and menopause. A yeast infection can also be caused by taking certain medicines such as antibiotics, birth control pills, and steroids.
Men can easily suffer from a yeast infection if they have unprotected sex with an infected woman. Uncircumcised men with poor hygiene are the leading candidates to experience the yeast fungus. Men normally catch an infection due to certain condoms or applying skincare products to their private that irritate them.
