Yeast naturally lives in the vagina, including a type called Candida Albicans. When the vaginal pH level increases, it causes an overgrowth of Candida leading to symptoms of vaginal yeast infection.
Antibiotics, pregnancy, uncontrolled diabetes, an impaired immune system, and oral contraceptives may cause this infection. According to the US Department of Health website, 75% of women will have at least one episode of vaginal yeast infection, and 40%–45% will have two or more episodes.

If you answered yes to most of the questions, set an appointment with your gynecologist ASAP! Alternatively, you could also try Clotrimazole (Canesten) Vaginal Tablet.
Using it is easy. Lay on your back with your legs slightly drawn up before inserting the tablet as deeply as possible into your vagina. For best results, do this in the evening before going to bed.
Clotrimazole vaginal tablets need moisture in the vagina to dissolve completely. Otherwise, undissolved pieces may crumble out of the vagina. Prevent this by making sure to insert the medication as deeply as possible. Should the tablet not dissolve completely within one night, consider using vaginal creams.
Clotrimazole (Canesten) Vaginal Tablet is available as 100 mg Vag. Tab (for 6-day treatment regimen) and 200 mg Vag. Tab (for 3-day treatment regimen).
Clotrimazole is the generic name of Canesten Vaginal Tablet. If symptoms persist, please consult your doctor.
