For many women one of the earliest sign of trouble is an unpleasant, yeast infection smell in her vaginal area. The smell or odor associated with a vaginal yeast infection is not necessarily strong but it is definitely different and usually unpleasant. A typical yeast infection smell is somewhat fishy and rancid. The odor is often accompanied by a white or grayish discharge.
Vaginal discharge is a normal occurrence for all women. During the menstrual cycle a change in vaginal smell is not unusual as the lining of the uterus is being shed and hormones are going through changes. This monthly change in smell is normal and does not indicate a problem.
However, If you notice an odor from your vagina that smells like fish or rotten food you almost definitely have a yeast infection that needs to be treated.
Our bodies contain good bacteria that consume yeast. As long as the good bacteria are present our bodies are able to keep the growth of yeast under control. The good bacteria can be killed by antibiotics, birth control medicines, etc., and this allows yeast to grow out of control. The yeast infection smell is a sign that this has happened.
In addition to the odor, some common symptoms of a yeast infection include vaginal burning, vaginal itching, irritation of the vulva, redness, swelling, and discomfort during intercourse.
Some temporary relief from the symptoms of yeast infection can be found by using garlic tampons, apple cider vinegar douche, and yogurt tampons. The garlic is effective in killing the yeast in the treated area, the vinegar helps restore the acidic balance, and the yogurt (if you use the correct yogurt) will help restore the level of good bacteria.
If you have a yeast infection you are not alone. In fact, 75% of women have a yeast infection at some time in their life and many have regular occurences of yeast infections throughout their lives. Some things you can do to help avoid a yeast infection include wearing loose fitting clothes, avoiding damp clothing, drying the vaginal area completely after bathing, not using commercial douches or performed hygiene sprays, and avoiding bubble baths.
It is very important to understand, however, that once yeast takes hold of the body it often spreads throughout. While your symptoms might be limited to the vaginal area you must treat the entire body to ensure that you it won't reoccur. Treatment for a specific area, as described above for the vaginal area, are only temporary. The temporary treatment will bring temporary relief but it will force the yeast to travel to other areas of the body and resurface there.
The only way to completely and permanently rid the body of yeast infection is to treat the entire body by removing the yeast overgrowth, restoring the chemical balance of the entire body, and then restoring and maintaining the correct level of good bacteria.
