Yeast Infection

Also called vaginal candidiasis, a vaginal yeast infection is a common condition that causes irritation, discharge, itching, and discomfort in and around the vagina and vulva.

Most women will get one at some point in their lives. Some women get chronic yeast infections, which often occur before their period starts.

Yeast infections are almost always caused by an overgrowth of fungus—specifically, Candida albicans. Risk factors include diabetes, antibiotic use, pregnancy, postmenopausal estrogen therapy, and having a weakened immune system. Genetics may also play a role.

Not everyone will have the same yeast infection symptoms, and some people have no symptoms at all.Those who do may experience:

In more severe cases, a person may experience swelling, extensive redness, and itching that leads to skin tears or cracks. These symptoms can cause pain during sex.

Thankfully, there’s a better way to treat this common condition without messy over-the-counter creams. Prescription antifungal medications can clear up a yeast infection with as little as one pill. Our board-certified online doctors prescribe these and other medications:

Medications like fluconazole tablets work by restoring the proper balance of bacteria and yeast that occur naturally in the vagina.
