Jan from Singapore asked a question

How can I prevent recurring yeast infections?

Gynaecology
Sexual Health

I am a 26 yo female. About 1 year ago, I stopped a hormonal medicine (Duphaston).

Since then, I keep having recurring yeast infection, and itchy vagina area just before my period. Is this normal? Are there any solutions?

Hi! I suggest to have it fully evaluated by seeing a gyne, and doing some swabs. This is to confirm if it truly is a yeast infection.

Quite a number of women mistake normal discharge for yeast infection. It is usual for discharge to be thicker and more opaque before the period.

A true clinically significant yeast infection will have a lot of curd-like lumpy white/yellow discharge and a VERY irritated red and sore vagina/vulva.

True recurrent yeast infections can be managed with regular suppressive antifungal treatment, probiotics and correction of any underlying predisposing factors. Examples of these include diabetes, and frequent antibiotic use.
