Why Do Some Women Get Recurrent Yeast Infections?

For many women, yeast overgrowth is a recurring problem. Recurrent yeast infections are generally defined as four or more infections per year. For these women, it’s especially important to consult a Candida specialist in New York, NY. There are many issues that can contribute to the recurrence of yeast overgrowth, including hormonal imbalances such as those caused by estrogen therapy, birth control pills, and pregnancy. The use of antibiotics is another common culprit. Antibiotics kill the beneficial bacteria that the gut needs to keep Candida under control.

Another medical condition that may cause recurrent yeast overgrowth includes obesity. Poorly controlled diabetes is another possibility, since Candida thrives on high glucose levels. It’s also possible that some women develop recurrent yeast infections because of an allergic reaction to Candida or because of a localized immune defect of the reproductive organs. Whatever the cause may be, a Candida specialist can recommend appropriate and holistic treatment options.
