Yeast infections are one of the worse things a person can suffer. I wouldn't really wish it on anyone (unless they royally pissed me off :p)

This is a stupid and misleading article. I agree with Robert V. Sex doesn't CAUSE a yeast infection though it can exacerbate an existing one simply because the motions of sexual intercourse can push the yeast colonies around inside, helping to create new cultures. Yeast overgrowth is caused by a diet high in sugar, simple carbs and processed foods. Yeast feeds on these things. Read "Wheat Belly" which is now on the Bestseller's list for a rundown on the crappy way wheat has been modified and tampered with for decades to create all sorts of digestive and inflammatory issues in the population. Unaddressed yeast overgrowth in the vaginal tissues should be a warning to women of a beginning to systemic wide yeast infection in the body and I'm speaking from experience. Been there, heard all the dumb explanations about the cause and treatment for (wear cotton panties, don't use scented lotions, etc. Total bull) and it wasn't until I changed my diet and added probiotics and natural antifungal herbs to my regimen did I get relief that lasted.

You don't even have to have sex to get yeast infection. It grows with sugar, breads etc. The Diflucan pill is not going to work on everyone. Does nothing for me. If you find you have fibro you may fight yeast your whole life.
