What is Vulvovaginal Candidiasis?
VVC, commonly known as a "vaginal yeast infection," is the second most common cause of vaginitis and is usually caused by Candida spp. It affects approximately 70-75% of women at least once in their lifetime, with 40-50% of these women experiencing more than one episode. The majority of VVC episodes are uncomplicated cases with sporadic mild-to-moderate infections. The remaining complicated cases are severe and/or recurring infections.
