Candidiasis is a common female ailment, which is likely to occur in every woman at least once in her life. It is caused by an overgrowth of yeast called Candida albicans that occurs naturally in us all. When the fungus in the vagina has been escalated to grow too much, it causes a vaginal yeast infection. The symptoms and the cause Candidiasis symptoms of infection are intense itching and burning, as well as chunky vaginal discharge. The vulva mucous membranes may show redness and small ulcers. Abdominal pain and fever don’t belong to the symptoms, and if they occur you should contact a physician. The triggering factor for causing infection is not always recognized, but, for example, antibiotics, pregnancy, as well as extensive use of non-breathable panty liners and pads can trigger it. Also artificial fibers and ill-breathable underwear predispose to infection. The yeast can also spread from the rectum into the vagina, so after a toilet visit always wipe from front to back. Since the symptoms of yeast infection are also similar to many other diseases, such as sexually transmitted diseases or infections, over-the-counter medication should be carefully considered, especially if the yeast infection occurs for the first time. Also, women under 16 and over 60 years of age should see a doctor in case of symptoms. Treatment For the treatment of vaginal yeast infection, vaginal suppositories and oral pills on prescription and non-prescription can be found in pharmacies. Vaginal suppositories are used for 1-3 days, even during menstruation. A variety of creams can handle itching of the vulva area. Asymptomatic inflammatory yeast does not need to be treated. For the self-treatment good personal hygiene and as a low-calorie diet as possible are of paramount importance. Poorly breathable menstrual pads, panty liners and synthetic fibrous underwear poach the lower end, and the yeast gets a favorable moist substrate. Yeast infection and menstruation Candidiasis may erupt during menstruation. In this case, it is essential to use the most breathable underwear as well as see to adequate hygiene. However, the lower end must not be washed and scrubbed too much, so washing with water or a mild detergent with a pH less than 7 is good to remember. Often, however, plain water is best. During infection, the use of menstrual pads and panty liners should be avoided, because they do not breathe, and thus poach the lower end promoting the growth of yeast. The cup is the best menstrual protection with the yeast infection, as it allows the lower end to breathe and does not disturb the natural moisture balance. If the infection is internal and the yeast medicine cannot be orally taken or a vaginal suppository in addition to the pill has been prescribed, it should be used in the evenings. In this case, the use of a tampon or cup is not recommended but as menstrual protection cotton pads can be used since they protect and allow the bottom end to breathe. A yeast infection can also affect a man, so if there is a yeast infection going on, it is recommended to use condoms when having sex.

Yeast Infection and Periods

Menstrual cups are connected at least to so many myths as the menstruation itself. Does the blood indeed flow back into the womb when the cup is full? Is it true that only women who have already given birth can use the larger cup? We put all the facts on the table and gathered together the most common myths and truths here. MYTH: When the cup is full, the blood flows back into the uterus. TRUTH: Wrong! The blood flows into the vagina and thus into the cup through the tiny hole in the cervix. It is not possible that the blood could flow back into the womb, not even when upside down. The muscles of the uterus push the menstrual blood also actively from the uterus. MYTH: With endometriosis you cannot use the cup? TRUTH: Wrong! Even women who suffer from endometriosis can use the cup! MYTH: Virgins cannot use the cup. TRUTH: Wrong! Even women who have not had sexual intercourse can use the cup. The vagina may occur ‘narrower’ with the virgins, and the hymen may still be present, but these facts do not prevent the use of the cup. At most, they can bring light challenges the first few times of inserting the cup. MYTH: You can go to the toilet with the inserted cup for both pee and poo. TRUTH: Right! With the inserted cup you can easily go to the bathroom if you only ensure that it is not out of place, for example during a bowel movement. Good hygiene is essential so that no foreign bacteria enter the vagina or cup. If you want to be sure of wearing comfort and hygiene remove the cup before going to the toilet and wash your hands and down around everything carefully before inserting the clean cup. You can empty the cup as often as you like. MYTH: Cup size 1 is designed for young women and virgins and size 2 for women who have given birth. TRUTH: Right and wrong! In general, the smaller menstrual cup is comfortable and better suited for young women and women who have not yet had sexual intercourse. If the woman has had multiple vaginal deliveries, the cervix and the vagina can be "stretched". Then, the larger cup is more suitable. However, the most important thing in the choice of the cup size is your own need and feeling. In a case of heavy bleeding, the larger menstrual cup is more practical because it can accommodate 5 ml more than the small cup. Some women find that the larger cup sits firmly. When selecting the cup size, the amount of bleeding and convenience in use decide, not the number of births. MYTH: Men do not know what is a menstrual cup. You cannot ask your father to give money for a menstrual cup, for example. TRUTH: Wrong! Men don’t necessarily know as much of menstruation as women do. Of course, they have made a rare personal experience with it. Most men, however, know what menstruation is, why it exists and how to deal with it. The menstrual cup may be less well known than for example tampons, because, among other things, in the media the menstrual cup is not presented so often as other feminine hygiene products. If your father doesn't know what a menstrual cup is, tell him about the world of women. You can calmly ask your father to contribute financially to the purchase of the cap because there is no longer need for the monthly pad and tampon purchases. Your father will certainly be proud that you mention the subject in such a mature and open manner. MYTH: The flushing water from the toilet can be used to wash the menstrual cup. TRUTH: Wrong! Although the flushing water can be clean in itself, millions of bacteria live in the toilet seat. If there is no hand shower in the bathroom and you have no Lunette wipes on hand, you can wipe the cup with clean toilet paper. At festivals or on the road the Lunette wipes are very convenient because they are biodegradable and can be thrown into the compost. MYTH: The menstrual cup can be washed with any soap. The main thing is that it is washed. TRUTH: Wrong! If you wash the menstrual cup with unsuitable products, you can damage the cup and also your health. The pH of the soap should be at 3.5 to 5.5 because the vagina has a low pH. Too basic soap disturbs the natural acidity of the vagina. The pH of the commercial dishwashing detergents and detergents is, for example, 7-10, i.e., much higher than the value of the vagina. Also, all oily detergents are banned because they can attach themselves to the surface of the cup forming a film that gathers the smell and color of the menstrual flow in itself. In addition, irritation of the mucous membranes of the vagina can be caused which may induce itching, burning and even inflammation. Over time, oils make the silicone material also brittle. The liquid soap of Lunette has been developed and tested in collaboration with experts to fit perfectly for cleaning the silicone cup. The components of the liquid wash the cup effectively but gently - and are not harmful to you. The vagina and actually the whole body are in a very sensitive state during the menstruation that increases the risk of inflammation. MYTH: You don’t need to cook the menstrual cup with every emptying. TRUTH: Right! The cup does not necessarily have to be disinfected by boiling but with the Lunette cleansing wipes, for example, the same result is reached. Cooking of the cup, however, is quite ok! Before the first use the cup should be cooked about 20 minutes, later 10 minutes are enough. Take care that the cup does not burn during cooking. Disinfectant for wounds is also suitable for disinfecting the cup. Attention! Under any circumstances do not use a hand sanitizer! A more thorough disinfecting of the cup should always be done before first use. Don’t forget good hand hygiene! See more myths and the truths behind them in the US blog!
