Author: Amber McIver
Burning, itching and discomfort are the main vaginal yeast infection symptoms that you feel when you are suffering from a yeast infection. Vaginal yeast infection symptoms can range from very mild to very severe, a cottage cheese like discharge is usually emitted when you are starting to get in between a mild and severe yeast infection. When you are suffering from a yeast infection you will also be feeling tired, run down and horrible. This is because your body is trying to fight an infection.
When you have dormant spores in your system, it really only takes a trigger to set off vaginal yeast infection symptoms. Stress, poor diet, low immunity are just some of the many triggers that will set off vaginal yeast infection symptoms. Spores will wait in your system until you give them the right environment to kick start a yeast infection. The only way to get rid of the spores is to treat them directly.

Add a little to your bath water and relax, this will also give you some much needed rest. Adding a few drops to a tampon and inserting will help provide you with some relief from your vaginal yeast infection symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are signs of yeast infection?
i had sex for the first time two days ago. the left side of my vagina itches. the sorenes is gonna though. people keep saying its either the hyme healing [or however you spell it] or a yeast infection. HELP. and any home remedies to get rid of it?
The signs and symptons of a yeast infection include itching and redness around the outer vagina (vulva), soreness, rash, and/or burning especially while urinating. Also, a cottage-cheese like discharge may be present.
Here are some tips for women to prevent the onset of a yeast infection:
•Wear natural-fiber clothing and underwear with a cotton lining.
•Don’t wear tight clothing such as panty hose, tights, leggings, nylon underwear, and tight jeans.
•If you are sexually active always use a condom.
•Don’t stay wet after bathing or swimming and don't stay in a wet swimsuit for long periods of time.
•Use feminine sprays or deodorants sparingly - especially if experiencing symptoms.
Following are some of the more popular yeast infection home remedies：
•Yogurt - The bacterium Lactobacillus acidophilus is naturally occurring in yogurt and is also found
in healthy vaginas.
•Garlic - Adding garlic to your diet will help kill yeast because it contains a natural anti-fungal
•Cranberries – Eating cranberries will lower the pH of your urine causing a rise in vaginal acidity as it
passes through the vagina. The yeast infected areas will be “washed clean”.
Is it normal to bleed during a yeast infection?
Well to start off, I missed a birth control pill (ortho tricylen) about a week and a half ago or so...well 4 days ago (Friday morning) I noticed a little bit of light pink blood when I wipe after peeing. I went and got a pap that same day and the nurse said it looked like I might have a yeast infection and that I was bleeding a little bit. Also, I miscarried at 19 weeks 3 days, 3 months ago so she said my cervix were healthy and healed. Well I've been bleeding still for 4 days...sometimes when I wipe its barely noticable..it hasn't been enough to wear a pad but just a pantyliner and its mainly when I wipe. Is this normal during a yeast infection or could it be from missing that 1 pill??? Also, I haven't had any signs of yeast infection...no itching...only thing that's been bothering me is after sex it hurts to pee. The nurse thinks its yeast infection cause she said there was some cottage cheese looking stuff when she did pap. I took the 3 day treatment but still bleeding. Don't say contact a doctor cause I am calling my OB in the morning, just wanted some opinions until then.
vaginal pain during intercourse?
About two weeks ago I was experiencing signs of a yeast infection so I did the treatment and still was unsatisfied so I got a second one day treatment to make sure everything was all cleared up. My period was due the day after this treatment and it came two days late, this was no big deal. However I know with a yeast infection I know intercourse can be painful so I wanted to wait till after my treatment(which I did) to have intercourse again with my boyfriend. So during my period we had sex(today) and the pain was still present and strong as though I still have a yeast infection, this is very unlikely because I did two treatments and having your period tends to clear out the infection anyways. So I'm wondering why this pain is still present and what it could be caused by? It's a stinging uncomforable pain as though my vagina is raw and it hurts alot when entering and still hurts during intercourse, also when going very deep it tends to hurt in the back of my vagina which isn't normal for us. Could this just be the infection healing or something else? Any suggestions would helps! Thanks Kate
It sounds like it probably is the yeast infection. Just wait a while, or if you can't, make sure you use lube. Take a mirror and check your vagina to see if it looks red and raw. If it hasn't cleared up after 2 treatments you should go and see your GP!

im stressed from all this worrying prb making my sypmtoms more severe and multiply, but i know something is wrong! SOMEONE ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME im seeing dr tom so hopefully some news(GOOD OR BAD AT THIS POINT IS GOOD TO ME!)
many of those symptoms lead to HIV, and it is not uncommon to have a negative test result when you are actually HIV positive. get retested.. but overall sounds like you just named everything you could think of.
-vaginal discharge: normal
-skin tags: normal
-sores: possible STD
- bump on cervix: might actually be the cervix, if you gyno can't see it, im sure it's fine
start thinking about what's changed recently versus worrying so much about the little things. that's what confuses doctors, when you talk about 100 different things when really the worst symptom is the cause of everything else
your thyroid problem is most likely causing your lymph nodes to be swollen, as well as most of the symptoms above
as for the acne.. it is stress induced.. and you seem to be very stressed.
i suggest stop taking so much medications, consult more doctors until you're satisfied, they know what your blood work reveals, not us
I started getting fingered few days back and now getting a burning/hurting sensation in the outer vagina where it appears
red. I tried warm saltwater washes and gets some relief from this, but after few hours the burning returns again. I tend to get yeast infections around my period times always (treated with Candid V), but this one feels different with burning rather than itching. Does this show signs of cut or infection? Can I try the Candid V cream for this or are there any home remedies for it to heal? Please advice.
