Often the vaginal symptoms are part of the wider picture of overgrowth. The person may have oral thrush, gastro-intestinal symptoms as bloating, constipation or diarrhea, food sensitivities and possibly other symptoms of candida overgrowth. For those cases, more complex treatment is needed to deal with the susceptibility to Candida overgrowth and address the underlying causes.
Changes in the diet are helpful to support the treatment. The typical diet in our modern world that is high in sugar and fast carbohydrates is one of the causes of Candida overgrowth. Some changes to healthy eating habits will help sustain healthy vaginal and intestinal microbiome.
Candida can be transmitted to the partner during sexual intercourse. Treating the partners is necessary to prevent passing the infection from one to another. This is valid for the female and male patients with genital Candida overgrowth.
