Yeast Infections

Sep 4, 2013

Are repeated yeast infections an early sign of a HIV infection?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi They can be, they can also be from many other reasons. You have put yourself at risk for HIV, by having unprotected vaginal or anal sex or you have shared needles with someone then being tested is highly important. If you haven't had any of these occurrences than it is not HIV. But I would recommend that you follow up with your healthcare provider for evaluation of why the recurrence of the yeast infection.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
