Having a yeast infection is pretty common. In fact three out of four women most probably will seek treatment for vaginal yeast infection.

How Do You Get Vaginal Yeast Infection

Vaginal yeast infection occurs when the acid balance within the vagina has been upset by situations like antibiotic treatments, pregnancy, menopause and the likes which causes the fungi present in your vagina to multiply rapidly.

Treatment For Vaginal Yeast Infection

The treatment for vaginal yeast infection prescribed by doctors usually comes in the form of topical vaginal creams and suppositories.

Treatment is usually administered consecutively for either three and seven days. Depending on the severity of the infection, symptoms may alleviate immediately after, however this should not be taken to mean that the infection itself has already been cured. It is important to follow the exact dosage prescribed by your doctor.

Prevention Is Always Better Than Cure.

Avoid using tight and non cotton underwear as well as tight jeans because these are common conditions that lead to vaginal yeast infection. Avoid using scented bubble baths, douche and other substances that may cause the natural acidic levels to lose its balance.

Oral Treatment For Vaginal Yeast Infection

Note that the treatment for vaginal yeast infection is not limited to the usual vaginal cream and suppository. You may also take an oral medication. This oral tablet can be purchased over the counter without a prescription however since this medication may have compatibility problems with other types of medications, it is important to check first with your doctor if it is alright to take such medicines.

If you intend to take Diflucan or if your doctor suggests the use of this oral treatment for vaginal yeast infection, be sure to inform your physician about any other type of medication you are on to be able to ensure that you don't take anything that may react adversely to diflucan.

The beauty of taking diflucan is that you will only need to take one dose unless otherwise prescribed. The downside to this treatment for vaginal yeast infection is that it is known to cause mild to severe side effects that includes conditions like an upset stomach, dizziness and headaches. If you are allergic to the medication, discontinue use and consult your doctor immediately. If you do not get treatment for adverse reactions from this pill you can end up with complications like liver damage.

Avoid The Complications

Yeast infection is not a life threatening ailment but the wrong treatment for vaginal yeast infection can be life threatening. To avoid complications and other such problems, never do anything without first consulting your doctor. Even if you have had vaginal yeast infection before and experience the same symptoms again, it is still best to go to your doctor and ask for an accurate diagnosis and evaluation.

There is no substitute to actual clinical testing to be able to tell whether you have a vaginal yeast infection or not. There are some diseases that have similar symptoms so it is better to get properly diagnosed. Otherwise, the use of a treatment for vaginal yeast infection will have no effect on your symptoms.
