Candidiasis has nothing to do with use of regesterone tabs. Regesterone is a progesterone
tablet and has no side effects of infection.
The more likely causes of candidiasis are
Higher dose combined oral contraceptive pill
and oestrogen-based hormone replacement
A course of broad spectrum antibiotics such as tetracycline or amoxiclav
Diabetes mellitusIron deficiency
Immunological deficiency e.g., HIV infection
On top of another skin condition, often psoriasis, lichen planus
or lichen sclerosus.
Other chronic illnesses
Candidal infection is more common in pregnancy also.
The candidal infection can be avoided by following measures by you if you have repeated episodes:
Cotton or moisture-wicking underwear and loose fitting clothing – avoid occlusive nylon pantyhose.
Soaking in a salt bath. Avoid soap – use a non-soap cleanser or aqueous cream for washing.
keep the perineum clean and dry.
Frequent change of pads during menses.
