You will find that yeast infection treatment via oral modalities is limited to a handful of approved medicines. The main problem is the cell membrane of fungus (yeast is a fungus) is very similar to the cell membranes of humans and other animals. So there is an obvious concern, and rightly so, that a medication will not cause harm to human cells while trying to kill the fungus (yeast) cells. As a result of this situation, there are only about ten approved internal anti-fungal medications for oral ingestion.

External yeast infections, of course, are a different matter and the oral drugs mentioned above are meant for use when an internal yeast infection is present.

There are many factors that have to be taken into consideration if you discover you have a yeast infection while you are pregnant and, of course, you must not hesitate to immediately visit your OB/GYN or medical doctor. If you are pregnant, and are having the symptoms of what appears to be a yeast infection, you should not make the diagnosis yourself or decide on a course of treatment. See your OB/GYN or doctor and get a concise evaluation and treatment plan. It's pretty certain that during a pregnancy no orally administered drugs will be prescribed.

If you have a vaginal yeast infection, the normal treatment consists of antifungal creams and suppositories. You can usually expect your yeast infection to disappear within approximately seven days. But the bottom line is to absolutely see your doctor if you are pregnant and suspect yeast infection symptoms.

Very many women choose to self-diagnose and self-treat a vaginal yeast infection. There's always the possibility that this time there are other problems developing that you aren't aware of so, even if you are pretty savvy when it comes to vaginal yeast infections, be protective of your health and see your medical treatment professional.

Unfortunately, it's still not unusual for a woman to prefer to simply treat her supposed vaginal yeast infection with medications she can buy without a prescription from her local pharmacy. The problem lies in the fact that other vaginal conditions, such as bacterial vaginosis, have similar symptoms to a vaginal yeast infection. It should be obvious by now that you should play it safe and get your condition evaluated by your doctor. Your doctor can quickly determine what is causing your vaginal infection by scraping off a quick sample of the tissue involved.

Did you realize that, just in America, a staggering one-third of all women will be subject to recurring yeast infections? A woman who is subject to recurring yeast infections can count on having about one every three months. If you have repeated yeast infections then you need to see your doctor for a consultation to determine the cause.

You may have no problem eliminating each infection as it shows up, but you need to get to the root of the problem and stop just treating the symptoms. Yeast infections can be caused by many different reasons and it's important for you to determine the situation that is behind your repeated infections.

As a rule, the majority of simple yeast infections are easy to treat with good results. Systemic yeast infections are the most critical and are caused when the fungus enters your bloodstream and quickly spreads in your body.

Unfortunately, the mortality rate is quite high in these cases and around 75%. However, systemic Candidiasis is not the same as a yeast overgrowth that occurs in your body also. A yeast overgrowth in your intestinal tract is not the same thing as a chronic, systemic yeast infection. The most critical development to avoid at all costs is letting the yeast infection enter your blood stream.
