Can A Yeast Infection Be Transferred From The Stool To The Vagina?


Hi there, Erik Bakker back again with Candida
Crusher FAQs. This is FAQ No. 14. Can yeast in the stool cause a vaginal yeast
infection? It can; in fact, women need to be careful
when they wipe that they wipe from front to back. Stool can contain significant amounts
of yeast. And I’ve noticed with stool testing, for example, when stool can be cultured; in
some cases we can find quite a healthy live yeast population in the stool. So stool certainly
can contain live yeast and it’s one key way for women to transfer Candida albicans from
their rectal region to the vaginal region. Bacterial vaginosis is also very commonly
occurred this way through fecal contamination. So to answer that question, yes it can be
transferred. So care needs to be taken with personal hygiene. Thank you.
