So you may have a vaginal yeast infection. There is nothing to be embarrassed about.
Vaginal yeast infections is a common occurrence. It’s caused by the build up of a fungus called Candida Albicans, which is normally found in small amounts in the vagina. The acidic environment in the vagina prevents yeast from growing. If the acidity of the vagina decreases, then too many yeast grow, causing vaginal infection.
The acidity of the vagina can be changed due to menstruation period, pregnancy, intake of antibiotics, steroids, diabetes, personal hygiene or birth control pills.
