Prevalence of Yeast and fungi other than Candida albicans in the vagina of normal young women.
Goldacre MJ., Milne LJ., Watt B., Loudon N., Vessey MP.
Yeasts and fungi other than Candida albicans were isolated from the vagina of 86 out of 1498 women (5.7 per cent) who attended a family planning clinic and they comprised 27.7 per cent of all fungal species obtained. These fungi were significantly more common in women aged 35 years and over and in those who used the diaphragm than in others. They were no more common in women with an abnormal vaginal discharge on examination than in others; and they were no more common in women with genitourinary symptoms than in women without.
