Identifying a Vaginal Yeast Infection

Common Symptoms:

  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Unusual discharge
  • Burning
  • Soreness

Note: Vaginal yeast infections typically do not change the pH level and have no odor, but you may experience pain during sex or urination.

No Need to Stress Vaginal yeast infections are common and usually not serious. They can be treated easily and effectively. Three out of four women will experience a yeast infection at least once in their lifetime. It’s not caused by poor hygiene and is not a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Prevention Tips

To reduce the risk of recurrent yeast infections, consider the following:

  • Maintain Good Hygiene: Regularly clean the genital area with mild soap and water.
  • Wear Breathable Clothing: Choose cotton underwear and avoid tight clothing.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Eat a balanced diet and avoid excessive sugar intake.
  • Stay Dry: Change out of wet clothes promptly after swimming or exercising.

Take Control and Feel Comfortable Again
Don’t let a vaginal yeast infection hold you back. Trust Canesten® to relieve your discomfort and help you return to the activities you love.

    You can easily and effectively treat a vaginal yeast infection at home with Canesten® treatments, available without a prescription. You can also try a combination treatment to cure the internal infection and relieve the external symptoms.

    Combination treatments are a 2-in-1 complete treatment for a VYI. All combination treatments include either a Canesten® internal treatment (vaginal tablet or vaginal cream) or a CanesOral® oral treatment, plus an external treatment (a tube of cream). Combination treatments treat both the cause and the symptoms of a yeast infection for complete relief.

    No. Canesten® treatments for a vaginal yeast infection are conveniently available in your local pharmacy or grocery store pharmacy.

    Talk to a doctor or pharmacist before using Canesten® if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant.

    Canesten® vaginal treatments are best when applied before you go to bed, as you can expect some leakage with the product use. For best results, lie down as soon as possible after inserting the vaginal products. This will reduce leakage. You may want to use panty liners to protect your clothing during the time you are using Canesten®.

    No, you can eat and drink normally while using Canesten® treatments.

    It's best to avoid sex until the VYI has cleared up. VYIs are not usually transmitted through sexual relations, even though a small percentage of male partners do have infections at the same time.
    It is important to know that Canesten® may reduce the effectiveness of some birth control methods, such as condoms, diaphragms or vaginal spermicides. This effect is temporary and occurs only during treatment.

    If there was no improvement in your symptoms in 3 days or if they did not disappear within 7 days, you might not have a vaginal yeast infection. Discontinue further treatment and consult your doctor.
