Yeast infections & Low iron?

I was recently diagnosed as having a ferritin level of 8. I was relieved that there was actually something "wrong" with me, since I've been feeling awful for quite a while. Tiredness, restless legs & my hair falling out...
But there's one thing I'm not sure if it's related. I get yeast infections all the time. Pretty much as soon as I get rid of one I get another. I've tried everything- treating my partner, using different anti-yeast meds, stopping the pill, a yeast/sugar free diet... nothing works in the slightest. Could it be due to the low iron?
I have only been taking the iron tablets for a month and haven't seen an improvement at all yet. I'm hoping that's still to come. I need not to feel so rubbish all the time!

Re: Yeast infections & Low iron?

Years ago I had constantly recurring yeast infections. That was before OTC medications were available and you had to have a prescription from your doctor to get any kind of anti-yeast infection medication. The doctor finally decided to do a conization of the cervix. What he found were plugs of yeast, some over an inch long in the cervix and told me had he not performed this surgery I never would have been free of the infections. I've never heard any other person mention this to me and I think I was just lucky to have the doctor I had at the time who was determined to find out why my infections kept coming back.
