This is rare, but possible. Our bodies are different and we react in different ways. A yeast infection can occur with the expelling of toxins and changes in your pH.

Your body will adapt to the change after the first steam. If you do happen to develop a yeast infection, we recommend using our boric acid pops or another natural yeast remedy. You can steam again after the infection clears.
