Candida Question #61 Can Prolonged Sex Cause Yeast Infection Or Irritation?

It can be, but sometimes having prolonged can also be quite irritating just to the vaginal tissues in general, particularly if there’s not enough lubrication, it can occur. It may not be a yeast infection, but having irritation in this particular area can certainly predispose you toward a yeast infection.

More likely this kind of itching and irritation is because of prolonged sex, so you’ll probably need to use a good lubricant. Coconut oil is actually quite a cool thing to use because it’s anti-fungal and it’s a good lubricant in general for sex.

Yeah, I would say you need to probably get yourself back in shape again and maybe next time you have sex don’t have it for a few hours, but take it easy and you’ll find that over a period of time it won’t be a problem anymore.

Candida Question #58 Can Yeast Infection Cause Numbness In My Vagina During Sex?

Well, it shouldn’t really do that, and this is of some concern to me when I hear you say something like that. I would prefer that you go and see your gynecologist and have an internal done, get checked out properly, maybe an ultrasound, have a smear, and get checked out properly to see what’s going on there.

We could be dealing with all sorts of different conditions. It certainly needs more investigation if there’s numbness there. It makes me think if there’s something wrong with your lower back. There could be all sorts of things going on there.

A yeast infection is not usually linked with numbness or loss of sense of vaginal sensation there during sex. My reply to that one would be to get checked out properly, and if nothing’s going on, if it’s all a normal diagnosis, then perhaps to go and see a natural medicine doctor or integrative doctor to look for proper treatment. This is something you certainly don’t want to play around with at home and do home treatments; numbness, it warrants some serious investigation.

Candida Question #56 I Have Discharge But No Itching Could It Be Yeast Infection?

Of course it could be. You don’t necessarily have to have itching when you’ve got a yeast infection. Some yeast infections can drive women absolutely crazy and involve lots of itching. Others can involve more discharge and have minimal or no itching.

But to be on the safe side, I recommend you get diagnosed properly. It would pay to go and have a smear done. Go and see your doctor or gynecologist and get checked out properly to assess what is going on. There could be all sorts of conditions. You could have bacterial vaginosis, it could be Candida, and it could be all sorts of different conditions. First get a diagnosis before you think about treatment.

It could be a yeast infection and a good way is to get checked out. So, I think that’s probably a clever thing for you to do. Then once you’ve worked out what you’ve got, you’re going to be in a better position to know how to treat that particular condition.

For more information, have a look at my book, Candida Crusher. You can read a lot more about that in Chapter 3. I hope that answers your question. Thank you.
