Yeast Infections | Questions to Ask Your Doctor

  • Do my symptoms indicate a yeast infection?
  • Do I need any tests, such as for sexually transmitted infections?
  • What is the likely cause of my yeast infection?
  • What treatment do you recommend? Can I use one of those over-the-counter medicines?
  • Does my sexual partner need treatment?
  • Is it safe for me to have sex, or should I wait until after I finish the treatment?
  • What should I do if I get another yeast infection? Do I need to visit you again?
