    • Stress Anxiety And Yeast InfectionsWhen talking about stress and anxiety, people usually think of problems related to work, finances, studies orthe family. Will the words “yeast infection” come to mind? Probably not. But after thinking about it for quietsome time, I finally concluded that yeast infection will definitely cause a lot of stress and anxiety to anywoman like me.When do we consider our jobs or studies to be stressful? Personally, I consider something to be stressfulwhen its demands are already too much for me to bear. My anxiety, on the other hand, is triggered when Ifeel that there is a looming problem I am trying to avoid but still has a possibility of occurring. Both thesesituations can be related with yeast infection and having it.

Yeast is naturally found in moisture-rich parts of a person’sbody like the mouth and, for women, their vagina. Aside from yeast, normal protective bacteria are alsofound in that area of a woman’s body. Yeast infection results from an overgrowth of Candida Albicans or adiminished amount of normal protective bacteria such that the “good” bacteria are outnumbered.

A high level of blood-sugar among people with diabetes and women whohave their menstruation triggers the proliferation of yeast. Hormonal changes that pregnant womanexperience also cause the blood-sugar level to increase resulting as well to a growth in the amount of yeast.A weak immune system resulting from lack of sleep or poor diet will not be able to fight against infectionsand make it easier to take place. Yeast also thrive in areas that are warm and moisture-laden which iscommon in situations when women wear tight clothing or sweat excessively.When a woman has yeast infection she will experience itching, irritation and soreness in the areas affected.She also feels pain during urination and sexual intercourse. Rashes form in the affected areas and vaginaldischarges occur. Itching is extremely bothersome especially during instances when one is alreadypreoccupied with other important tasks. The irritation must be very difficult to handle in situations where it isembarrassing to scratch one’s self but feels a great need to do it. The pain you avoid to experience despitethe strong urge to urinate just might be too much to bear. When placed in these kinds of situations, Iimagine that it is not impossible for a woman to feel stressful.Fortunately, there are ways toDownload your FREE copy of eBookYeast Infection - Symptoms & Home RemediesClick here to download
