Yeast infection question

May 16, 2010

Dr. Bob if the world would be a better place if we had more spirits like you. Read your bio. How are you? You are in my prayers for JOY!

Can you please tell me in waht STDs besides HIV cause recurrent yeast infections?

I hate the internet. According to everything I've read...EVERY SYMPTOM AND ACTIVITY CAUSES HIV. UGH!!!

Response from Dr. Frascino


There are many potential underlying causes for recurrent yeast infections. (These are not STD related.) The vast, vast majority of recurrent yeast infections have absolutely nothing to do with HIV/AIDS or other STDs.

Follow up with your gynecologist or general medicine physician. He should be able to sort this annoying and very common problem out for you, OK?

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
