Vaginal yeast infection, also known as vaginal thrush or vulvovaginal candidiasis, is a common fungal infection of the vagina. This infection occurs when there is an overgrowth of yeast in the vagina.
Up to 75% of women will experience this infection at some point in their lives, and approximately 5 – 8% will have recurring episodes. Common symptoms include: itching, burning, inflammation, abnormal vaginal discharge, discomfort and pain. Women who suffer recurring infections may have Recurrent VulvoVaginal Candidiasis also known as RVVC.
