A yeast infection is a fungal infection, and can be a very uncomfortable time for any woman. If you have suffered from a yeast infection or are suffering at the moment I can tell you that a yeast infection will not clear if it’s left untreated. A yeast infection is caused by a mutation of the Candida yeast that is usually harmless, but is now aggressive, and will need to be treated for the infection to clear.
One of the main reasons why any women would be hoping that their yeast infection will clear by itself is due to the embarrassment of seeing their doctor and/or purchasing an over the counter anti fungal cream or suppositories. They may feel good about not having to deal with any embarrassing situations, but they could be putting their own health in danger.
If the infection that they want to leave untreated is not a yeast infection then they risk the unknown infection causing damage to their reproductive organs. Other vaginal, bacterial infections can travel past the cervix, and then infect the fallopian tubes. It’s possible this can leave them without the ability to have anymore children.
If you are suffering from any symptoms that resemble a yeast infection then you should go to see your doctor as soon as possible. You should see your doctor even if you have suffered from a yeast infection before. Only your doctor can test you properly, and see if the infection is caused by the Candida yeast.
You should see your doctor when you start suffering from any of these symptoms:
- Itching in and around your genital area
- Burning sensation when urinating
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Vaginal discharge
Once you have established that you have a yeast infection you can then see what the cause is. Your doctor can also run tests to make sure you have no major health issues, but this will probably only happen if your yeast infection returns.
If a yeast infection is left untreated it will only get worse, which will lead to your symptoms getting more severe. It can also spread to other parts of your body if the cause of the infection isn’t identified. A yeast infection can be a sign something isn’t right, and your health could deteriorate if the cause isn’t found.
