In today’s blog post, we address a common question we receive: Can low estrogen cause a yeast infection? Absolutely, estrogen levels, whether high or low, can influence the likelihood of a female experiencing a yeast infection. Estrogen plays a pivotal role in vaginal tissue health. Insufficient estrogen levels can lead to drier vaginal tissues, making an individual more susceptible to bacterial or yeast-related infections. Conversely, an excess of estrogen or an overproduction of mucous can also promote the growth of yeast in the vaginal area. It’s not uncommon for many women to observe an uptick in yeast infections during times of hormonal shifts, such as before menstruation or around perimenopause, due to changes in estrogen levels.
For those seeking to maintain a healthy balance and potentially reduce the risk of such infections, our book provides comprehensive insights.
