FAQ

Virtual Yeast Infection Visit

What is a yeast infection?

Vaginal yeast infections (candidiasis) are infections of the vagina and vulva that cause discharge, irritation, and itchiness. A healthy vagina contains a normal balance of yeast and bacteria (lactobacillus). A yeast infection occurs when there is an imbalance of yeast. Most yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of the fungus Candida albicans, though there are other types of candida fungus that need therapies that are more aggressive and are harder to treat. Yeast infections are not sexually transmitted infections, though you can get a yeast infection from your sexual partner because of a bad reaction to their natural genital yeast and bacteria.

Can I see a doctor online for a yeast infection?

Yes. Thanks to telehealth platforms such as Sesame, you can chat with an online doctor such as an urgent care provider, infectious disease specialist, or primary care provider to discuss the symptoms of a yeast infection. Telehealth has made it easier than ever to see a doctor right away without having to leave home. Doctors on Sesame can treat conditions such as yeast infections, UTIs, bacterial vaginosis, and other women's health issues.

To schedule a same-day yeast infection visit online, search "Yeast infection" or "virtual yeast infection visit" in our search bar. Select the health care provider you want to see and schedule a visit from the drop-down menu that works for your schedule. After you pay for your appointment upfront, you will be sent a booking confirmation email that contains the link to your video chat room. Sesame recommends finding a private, secure location with a strong internet connection for virtual visits.

Discuss your symptoms and treatment plans with your provider or doctor. If medication is appropriate, doctors on Sesame can write prescriptions for medication such as fluconazole (Diflucan) for just $5 and have them delivered to your front door for free.

How do you get a yeast infection?

When your body has an imbalance of Candida fungus, you may develop a vaginal fungal infection (vaginitis). There are a number of ways in which you can develop an overgrowth of candida such as the use of antibiotics, douching, an impaired immune system, pregnancy, or hormonal contraceptives which increase estrogen levels.

You might reduce the likelihood of getting a yeast infection if you change your tampons often, avoid hot tubs and hot baths, and for those with diabetes, control your blood sugar. If you are experiencing a yeast infection for the first time, consider seeing a doctor. They can help you decide which treatment is best for you. Sesame has doctor visits available as early as today. Don't wait to get the treatment you deserve. Book and pay doctors directly, at upfront prices, on your schedule.

What are the symptoms of a yeast infection?

Common symptoms of a yeast infection include:
- Vaginal discharge: Thick white cottage cheese-like discharge that is odor-free
- Thrush
- Soreness
- Burning while urinating or during sexual intercourse
- Vaginal rash
- Swelling and/or redness of the vulva
- Intense itchiness of the vagina and vulva


It is common for women to confuse their yeast infection symptoms with bacterial vaginosis (BV), which shares many of the same indicators. A good way to differentiate is to look at the discharge. If your discharge is thin, greyish-white, and has a strong fishy odor, you likely have BV.

If you are pregnant or have more severe symptoms, uncontrolled diabetes, or developed four or more yeast infections in the last year, you may have a complicated yeast infection. Make an appointment with a doctor if your symptoms don't go away with over-the-counter antifungal medication such as vaginal cream or suppositories.

What are the risk factors of developing a yeast infection?

Yeast infection risk factors include:

Lowered immunity: Those with an impaired immune system are more likely to get yeast infections.

Higher estrogen levels: Hormone therapy such as high-dose birth control pills make yeast infections more likely.

Antibiotic use: Antibiotics kill bad bacteria, but they also kill good bacteria which can lead to an imbalance of yeast in your system.

Uncontrolled diabetes: Those who have diabetes and don't properly control their blood sugar may increase their risk of developing yeast infections.

Do I have bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection?

Identifying whether you have a vaginal yeast infection or BV lies in the color and consistency of your vaginal discharge. While yeast infections are normally scentless with a thick white consistency, BV discharge has a strong fishy odor and is thin, gray, or yellow in hue.

It is hard to differentiate the other symptoms of a yeast infection and BV due to the fact that they share similarities such as burning during urination and vaginal itching. In order to properly identify your vaginitis, an appointment with a women's health doctor may be needed.

If this is the first time you are experiencing these symptoms, or suspect that it is BV, you should see a doctor. BV will not go away on its own, and prescription medicine is necessary for treatment.

How long does a yeast infection last?

If you have a mild yeast infection, it should heal up within a couple of days, with moderate and severe cases lasting up to two weeks or more.

If your yeast infection hasn't gone away within several days or you notice pelvic pain, you may have a different type of infection such as a urinary tract infection.

What are common yeast infection treatments?

Common yeast infection treatments include over-the-counter antifungal medication such as Monistat (miconazole), topical vaginal cream (clotrimazole), prescription medicine such as Diflucan (fluconazole), and vaginal suppositories.

If over-the-counter medicine isn't clearing up your yeast infection, you may have a strain of Candida that has a resistance to antifungal medication. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that this is becoming an increasing problem with yeast infections. Speak with a doctor if you have concerns about your yeast infection. They may be able to provide you with a stronger medication.

What happens during a virtual yeast infection visit?

In your booking confirmation email, you will receive a link to a video chat platform that you will use for your appointment. This allows you to talk to your doctor face-to-face without having to actually go to the clinic. We recommend that you find a quiet, private area with a strong internet connection for your appointment.

Because doctors are unable to receive a sample of vaginal secretions, you will be asked about your symptoms and medical history during the visit. You may be asked about your sexual history as well. While these can be sensitive matters to discuss, these questions help doctors diagnose whatever condition you may be experiencing. If follow-up testing is required, Sesame will get in touch with you about the next steps.

If your doctor is able to definitively diagnose your condition, they will discuss treatment options with you. If medication is appropriate, your doctor can write you a prescription after your appointment and have it delivered right to your front door. Discuss how to administer the medication you are prescribed, and any side effects you may experience while undergoing treatment for a yeast infection.
