The causes of vaginal yeast infection discharge
A vaginal infection is known medically as “vaginitis.” The 3 most common causes of vaginal infections are vaginal yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, and trichomoniasis. Vaginal discharge may also occur if you have an infection in your cervix with gonorrhea or chlamydia. There are other causes of vaginal infections that are less common. Each type of vaginitis is caused by a different type of germ or organism, so each type must be treated differently.
What Causes Vaginal Yeast Infections?
The Candida genus of yeast is a naturally occurring microorganism in the vaginal area. Its growth is kept in check by the lactobacillus bacteria. However, these bacteria can’t work effectively if there is an imbalance in your system. This leads to an overgrowth of yeast, which causes the symptoms of vaginal yeast infections to be present.
Most yeast infections are caused by Candida albicans — a specific strand of yeast. These yeast infections are easily treatable. If you’re having recurring yeast infections or problems getting rid of a yeast infection with conventional treatment, then a different version of Candida might be the culprit. A lab test can let your doctor know which type of Candida you have.
The imbalance that allows the overgrowth of yeast to happen can be due to:
antibiotics (they lower the amount of lactobacillus, or good bacteria, in the vagina)
weak immune system
poor eating habits, including a lot of sugary foods
hormonal imbalance near your menstrual cycle
lack of sleep
