What is Vaginal Yeast Infection?

Most women will get a vaginal yeast infection at some point in their lives. This means burning, itching, and discharge for the duration of this fungal infection.

Yeast infections are itchy, uncomfortable, and very inconvenient. Like most vaginal issues, no one really likes to talk about them. But even though no one talks about them, almost everyone gets them. Vaginal yeast infections are very common in women, and it is estimated that 75% of women will experience one in her lifetime.



Though yeast infections can happen to anyone at any time, there are certain things that make getting them more likely. Most infections can be cleared up quickly and easily.

The vagina normally contains a healthy balance of bacteria and yeast. The hormone estrogen helps bacteria called lactobacilli to grow. These bacteria kill harmful organisms in the vagina and keep you healthy. Upsetting the balance of these bacteria can lead to a yeast infection. Some things that make yeast infections more likely are douching, synthetic underwear, not changing underwear after exercise, or cleaning up after sex.



The most common symptom of a vaginal yeast infection is extreme itchiness in and around the vagina.

Other signs and symptoms include:

  • Burning, redness and swelling of the vagina and vulva
  • Pain when urinating
  • Pain during sex
  • Soreness
