Chemo causes yeast infections?


Question from SantaBarbara: I think chemotherapy is causing some yeast infections in me. Is this common?
Answers - Kara Nakisbendi It's very common any time you have any hormonal shifts or changes in your immune system. And sometimes you need to treat it a little more aggressively than a typical yeast infection you may get at other times.

On Wednesday, February 20, 2008, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Sex, Intimacy, and Breast Cancer. Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D. and Kara Nakisbendi, M.D. answered your questions about sexual side effects of breast cancer and breast cancer treatment, and what you can do about them.
