Birth control/yeast infection

I've had two yeast infections in the last month and I just started a new birth control. Do you think they have something to do with the other? I called Friday and left a message for the Dr, so hopefully they call back tomorrow.

And it has nothing to do with sex since dh is deployed and I didn't have this problem 3 months ago.

  • Anything is possible. When a womans body has hormone flux, it can cause yeast infections. Just ask your doc

  • When I got the Mirena, I got them all the time. So personally, I think it's definitely possible.

  • The birth control doesn't say anything about side effects but I read that a common cause for recurrent yeast infections is hormonal birth control. UGH! Super annoying!

  • You could try eating yogurt. You know how when you are on an antibiotic the doc tells you to eat yogurt because the antibiotic kills even the friendly bacteria in your body. So you need the yogurt to put it back. Just a thought.

  • It could be. I've been getting them a lot recently too. I actually just stopped my birth control, going to gyne on the 19th for my annual. I would definitely call your gyne.
