Thanks for your question and concern. The increase in the affecting of the yeast infection is not at all related to the symptom of the herpes infection. It has been mistaken for the yeast infection to be the sexually transmitted diseases such as the gonorrhea, herpes and the chlamydia. So it is better to have it checked by the gynecologist whether it is yeast infection or as the herpes. By conducting a simple physical examination the gynecologist can easily tell you whether the symptoms present in your body are due to the infection of herpes or not. It would be good to have the visit to a doctor as soon as possible as most of the diseases can be easily treated at their starting stages itself, delaying the treatment would make the disease get more problematic and will take more time in curing the disease. Take care.
