For women with persistent yeast infections, could HPV be the cause?

by Rachel on August 5, 2011

I’m curious to know how many women that have persistent yeast infections have HPV. Doctors blow it off with a shrug. I don’t know how to get rid of it. Looking for a good doc too.

Women with HPV have been known to have vaginal or vulvar pain disorders (I’m one of them) but I have never heard of HPV causing excessive yeast infections.
Have you had any blood tests done to rule out any other underlying medical conditions? If you have not had any tests done it might be a good idea to get that checked out just to be safe.

if you are sexually active your partner needs to be treated too

I’m not sure about HPV but I’ve had a few yeast infections in my day. Usually they are caused by a hormonal imbalance, which are more frequent before your period as your hormones get out of whack.

Also, can be caused by the type of underwear you are wearing, they could be not allowing your vagina to breath properly. And wearing wet or damp clothing for too long in that area, as well as clothing that is too tight for your vagina, will cause or can cause yeast infections.

I would ask your doctor to name you all of the reasons that you can get a yeast infection and ask her/him to tell you ways to prevent them!
