Prevalence and Incidence of Vaginal candidiasis

Lifetime risk for Vaginal candidiasis:

75% women lifetime

Prevalance of Vaginal candidiasis:

Nearly 75% of all adult women have had at least one genital "yeast infection" in their lifetime. On rare occasions, men may also experience genital candidiasis. (Source: excerpt from Genital Candidiasis: DBMD)

About prevalence and incidence statistics:

The term 'prevalence' of Vaginal candidiasis usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Vaginal candidiasis at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Vaginal candidiasis refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Vaginal candidiasis diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
