Yeast Infections Pregnancy
For the many women who suffer
from yeast infections pregnancy can sometimes be the cause of
it. In other words, even though you might not have a yeast
infection before you were pregnant, after you become pregnant
you have a good chance of getting a yeast infection.
This is due entirely to the
fact that when a woman is pregnant her hormonal balance is
thrown completely off balance. This in turn can lead the yeast
producing Candida Albicans bacteria to thrive, as you can see
with yeast infections pregnancy states of hormonal imbalance,
plays a crucial role.
To put it very simply, yeast
producing Candida Albicans bacteria thrives and survives in
dark places which are moist and humid. Since this just about
sums up the state of being for your vagina, it means that yeast
infections will normally occur in your vagina although they
have been known to occur in the mouth, in the armpits, and
between the toes.
Under normal circumstances the
bacteria live in your vagina in small manageable numbers, but
when your hormones get thrown off balance, these small numbers
can overthrow the good bacteria and grow almost exponentially
in number. This means that for yeast infections pregnancy is a
good state of being for the bacteria to thrive in.
It should perhaps also be
noted that since a woman’s immune system is weakened during
pregnancy to allow the fetus to grow unharmed within the womb,
yeast infections pregnancy symptoms can occur more readily and
sometimes more than once.
If this happens, that is if
you have yeast infections pregnancy recurring symptoms you
might want to have it checked out thoroughly just to rule out
any other underlying cause.
Most times if you suffer from
yeast infections pregnancy makes you more susceptible therefore
if your partner also has a yeast infection you can get it again
in spite of your having cured the first time around.
It’s also true that with yeast
infections pregnancy treatments should be carefully looked at
before being used to ascertain that they truly are safe to use
and that they won’t cause harm to the developing fetus, or that
they won’t cause you to go into premature labor.
This holds true for natural
and herbal remedies, as well as for prescription, and over the
counter medications as well.
Also, if you believe that you
may be suffering from yeast infections pregnancy is something
that should be taken into account as well as if you’re near to
term and want to breast feed.
Breast feeding also takes its
toll on your hormonal system and you might find that your yeast
infections pregnancy symptoms have carried over post-pregnancy.
What you need to do in this case is to monitor the progress of
your infection and live a healthy a lifestyle as
