Vaginal Yeast Infection
Resources and links for vaginal yeast infections
Vaginal yeast infections are characterized by severe itching, vaginal discharge, soreness or irritation, burning sensation, and pain during sexual intercourse.
Like other pain causing conditions, vaginal yeast infections may cause or contribute to problems with vaginismus and/or may coexist with vaginismus on an ongoing basis. As a result, women may need to address both conditions before they are able to fully restore pain-free intercourse.
