Can a yeast infection get worse while on my menstral

Patient: Can a yeast infection get worse while on my menstral cycle?

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Yes, sometimes because of continued wetness due to menstrua l flow and decreased local resistance due to alteration in pH, severity of yeast infection may increase.In that case better to choose oral antifungal drugs till the completion of menstruation with your doctor’s advice.Take care.
