Do You Have A Yeast Infection?

Feeling vaginal itchiness or discomfort? Experiencing burning or pain when you pee? Does it bother you during sexual intercourse? Are you noticing redness or a white cottage-cheese-like discharge? If you are experiencing these symptoms you may have a yeast infection.

Yeast infections, while uncomfortable to experience and uncomfortable to talk about, are actually quite common and occur for a variety of reasons from sexual intercourse to hormone changes to taking antibiotics. 

If you suspect you may have a yeast infection, it is important to consult your OB/GYN doctor so they can confirm your diagnosis since there are other conditions and infections that have similar symptoms. Once diagnosed, treatment for a yeast infection typically involves over-the-counter medicinal cream or an oral pill. 

For a consultation, or simply to learn more about the causes, symptoms, treatment and cautionary measures for yeast infections, we invite you to schedule an appointment with one of our gynecology experts!
