What You Can Do

The risk of vaginal yeast infection tends to increase with a number of factors. Such factors include pregnancy, the use of antibiotics, which leads to an imbalance of the regular vaginal flora, a weakened immune system and finally uncontrolled diabetes. Candida albicans has been found to be the most common form of fungus to occur in the UAE (17.61% of postmenopausal women suffer from this infection). In order to avoid the vaginal yeast infection, women need to avoid;

  • Skin-tight pantyhose.
  • Scented female products such as tampons and pads.
