Candid Candida Conversations With Your Doctor

Should you see a gynecologist for your first yeast infection? Absolutely! There is a lot of information available about candida infections and as you may (or may not) know, many types of yeast infections.

Candida can be an overgrowth

  • in your gut,
  • can manifest itself with skin rashes all over your body,
  • can be in the vaginal or penile area;
  • and oral thrush is another type of yeast infection.

The condition can be very serious if you have serious health problems or problems with your immune system and it can also be a sign of a serious underlying health problem as well and this is something that will be a concern of your doctor. Candida entering the bloodstream can be very dangerous but for most candida sufferers in good health, this is not something that is a concern.

Those who believe they have a yeast infection should get it confirmed by a doctor. Once you have had a diagnosis, you might be better equipped to self treat and approach it if it recurs in the future.

When you talk to your gynecologist, here are some top questions that are asked by candida sufferers as well as some of the replies a gyno might suggest.

1. How did I get candida?

Candida infections can happen for many reasons including health, diet, use of medication, infection by a sexual partner and a lowered immune system.

2. Do medicines and creams cure candida permanently?

Many factors will impact how likely you are to have repeat problems with yeast infections. Many women and men who have yeast infections and don't change their diet and lifestyle do have recurring problems with it.

3. Is there anything I can do to lower my susceptibility?

 Eating habits and exercise can make a big difference in how often you get candida infections. There are lists of candida diet foods that you should avoid and that you should eat extra of in order to help your body's candida levels remain low.

4. Can I go swimming if I have a yeast infection?

Yes, you can swim with candida but you should be extra careful to dry your body well and change out of a wetsuit immediately so you don't allow any rashes to worsen.

5. Is an over-the-counter medication the best option for a yeast infection?

That answer all depends on the severity of your infection and your general health. Some individuals with serious candida infections need creams and / or medicine to kill the bacteria. Others find that their infections can be handled with specific holistic supplements and /or a strict diet. You need to talk to your doctor about your specific circumstances and once you know about the presence of candida and have researched the many treatment options, you may be in a position to self treat future outbreaks.

6. Can I exercise while I have a candida infection?

Actually, exercise is recommended for candida sufferers. By exercising, you are creating a hostile environment for candida bacteria. They thrive most when you're eating poorly and living a sedentary life.

7. Are there any other instructions for care during candida infection treatment?

If you have a vaginal yeast infection, it's important to change your underwear frequently and dry well after showering. Cotton underwear are recommended as the fabric is breathable and more absorbent for any moisture. It's also important when you go to the bathroom to wipe from front to back instead of back to front in order to avoid unnecessary fecal bacteria entering the vagina.

Your Gyno Visit

When you visit a doctor to find out if you have a candida infection, they will probably ask you as series of questions to determine whether you do in fact have a yeast infection as well as test for candida.

The doctor may order several tests including: a physical examination, a urine test, saliva test, stool sample analysis, pH level test and a blood test to determine if you have candida. Some repeated candida sufferers may have other health conditions as well so doctors may test for other conditions while reviewing your lab results.

For women, seeing your gynecologist on an annual basis, whether you have candida problems or not is a prudent choice and a sign of taking good care of yourself.
