Vaginal Yeast Infection Symptoms | Signs of Candidiasis in Women

Yeast Infection Symptoms:

When you have a yeast infection, you will usually feel that your vaginal area is itchy and you might also see a white discharge that may look similar to cottage cheese. You might also find that you feel a burning sensation and an irritation in between your legs. Here are a few more symptoms that may arise with a vaginal yeast infection:

  • Sometimes when a woman has vaginal yeast infections, she will find that having sexual intercourse is painful.
    She might even feel a certain heightened sensitivity to pain in her private parts and the slightest movement may cause her pain or irritation.
  • When a woman has vaginal yeast infections, she may also experience a certain burning or irritating feeling every time she urinates.
  • If the yeast infection goes beyond the vaginal area or infects other parts of your body like some of your vital organs, you can expect some form of dysfunction there.
    For example, if you get candida esophagitis, you will experience some pain in the esophagus when swallowing, and this pain that you feel comes from ulcers that are found all along the gastrointestinal system, sometimes all the way to your intestines.
  • A person may also experience oral candidiasis and this is characterized by white, milk-like patches on the tongue.
