Nearly seventy-five percent of all adult women have had at least one yeast infection, also known as genital candidiasis, in their lifetime (rarely, men can experience it, too), so most of us are familiar with the unpleasant symptoms of itching, discomfort and discharge. Generally, a weakened immune system, pregnancy or taking antibiotics can be blamed but you can also trigger an attack by wearing clothes that restrict the airflow, like tight-fitting jeans and tight (for okada riders) without a cotton panel, or using harsh soaps, medicated soaps and perfumed products. Avoid these and you cut the risk of an attack. Also, don’t make the mistake of thinking you can’t pass it on to a partner. While he may have no symptoms, chances are he’ll just pass it back to you just as you thought you were on the road to recovery.
