Vaginal Soreness

Vaginal soreness can be kept under control with an improved diet consisting of less processed foods, minimizing vaginal contact to chemicals, dyes and perfumes, and a daily regimen of probiotics, which can help restore and maintain natural balance.*

Most women are so embarrassed by this problem that they find it difficult to open up about it, even to their doctor. Fortunately, there are ways that you can improve the condition of your yeast infection naturally. The sooner you act, the sooner you'll start to get better.

Vaginal Redness and Soreness

Vaginal redness and soreness is only one of many signs of a yeast infection. The other signs include:

• Vaginal itching
• Vaginal burning
• Vaginal discharge that is white or off-white in color and like cottage cheese in consistency
• A strong, yeasty odor
• Pain during urination
• Pain during sexual intercourse

Any of these signs, including vaginal soreness, could indicate that you have a yeast infection. These types of infections are quite common, and you might be surprised to find that many women are unaware that this is what they have, so their condition continues to worsen, because they don't seek proper care or attention.

Vaginal Soreness and Discharge

The yeast that causes a yeast infection is called Candida albicans. The causes of Candida infections vary, and can include direct contact of the infected area with the yeast. But it can also include Candida overgrowth.

Candida is a natural part of your body, part of your gut flora, meant to help you digest your food. But if the Candida in your body gets too abundant, it can spread to other parts of your body and cause infections, leading to symptoms like vaginal soreness and discharge. Once again, the sooner you're able to identify the cause of your vaginal soreness, the sooner you'll be able to start addressing it.

Probiotic supplements can help you bring your vaginal flora back to a healthy balance.* You can read different probiotic reviews to help you to find one that will work for you, but it might be a good idea to try a few out to see which one is the best fit for your body. It can bring balance back to your body naturally.* Some examples of probiotics for women include Nutraelle FemCare, Fem-Dophilus, and Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support (
