Do I Have A Yeast Infection??

Um okay. I think I might have a yeast infection or something.. I dunno that’s why I’m asking. I haven’t told anyone, I’m like 16 and I’ve had my period but it’s not regular yet so things that I’ve looked up have said that you get like white discharge when your period isn’t regular.. But well I’m getting discharge so I usually wear a liner so that I don’t ruin all my panties but like this problem is on and off and sometimes it’s clear stuff and sometimes it’s off white. It feels gross but I don’t know what to do about it…I don’t want to see a doctor and I don’t think anyone I trust to talk about it (such as my mom) would be able to help. I heard you shouldn’t take the medication unless your sure about it and I’ve also heard that sometimes it smells like modly bread or something and I dunno but sometimes I think I smell it… Also yes there is some itching…

Answer #10

Two weeks ago, I had intense itching and burning and swelling down there. I treated myself with the 3 day monistat cream and it went away within five days. At the same time, my hubby complained of itchy red bumps on his pubic area. They looked just like ingrown hairs that itch. No big deal, right? After I was sure my symptoms were gone, we resumed sexual intercourse. Three days later, I woke up with another yeast infection. Intense itching. Again, I went to the store and got the three day treatment. After one night, it was gone. However, my hubby told me that he had intense itching, and his penis was very dry. The red “ingrown hair” bumps were still there too. Now, I am having the same itchy red bumps on my upper pubic region. They feel just like in grown hairs but they are really bothering me. What the heck is this? Did we just give each other a yeast infection and just both happen to have a lot of ingrown hairs from sexual intercourse? Or is this something else?

Answer #11

The symptoms of vaginal yeast infection include:

Vaginal itching that is often severe. Vaginal discharge that is usually white, curd-like, and usually ODOURLESS (or the same odour as usual). Red, irritated skin around the opening to the vagina (labia). Pain while urinating when urine touches irritated skin. Pain in the vagina during sexual intercourse.

Vaginal yeast infections often clear up on their own without treatment, usually when menstruation begins. Menstrual blood raises the vaginal pH, causing the number of yeast cells to decrease because they can’t grow in the pH present during menstruation.

Call your health professional for an appointment within 1 week if you:

Develop an unusual vaginal discharge, and this is the first time you have had an infection that might be a vaginal yeast infection. Have unusual vaginal itching. Have pain during sex or urination. Develop any other symptoms that may indicate a vaginal infection. Continue to have symptoms despite home treatment with a non-prescription medication. Have symptoms return within 2 months, and you have not been taking antibiotics.

Also, Normal vaginal discharge:

Does not smell bad. (Though it has a smell, which varies from girl to girl) Is not accompanied by pain, itching, burning, or redness. Varies with age, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and use of birth control pills. A change in your normal vaginal discharge may be a symptom of a vaginal infection.

Teenage girls may have a large amount of a watery discharge caused by high hormone levels during the teen years or by taking birth control pills. Discharge from the vagina is normal, and your symptoms do not sound severe, but take a look at the info I have given. Other causes could be:Infections of the vagina, such as bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, human papillomavirus (HPV), or herpes. All usually occur with obvious symptoms.

This is just general advice on the topics pertaining to your question, and do not constitute official medical advice. What you do with this knowledge is up to you.

If in doubt, see a doctor. I understand feeling uncomfortable with this sort of thing. That is why I left my male familly doctor at the age of 14 and found a female one for myself.

Answer #12

Yeast infections usually start with a slight tickly/itchy feeling in the vag, that’s one subtle clue that a yeast is a brewing. You might also notice some thick white creamy looking discharge right off the bat or it may take a few days to develop. Once a yeast infection is in full swing you’ll notice that your vulva and/or vagina is swollen and itchy. This is what a yeast infection is like. If you aren’t having multiple sex partners and you’re noticing these types of changes then you can pretty well assume that you have a yeast infection. Keep your lady parts as clean and dry as you can, wear loose cotton underwear, and try over the counter monistat one day treatment, the kind that comes with the external vulvular creme as well as the vaginal suppository. The creme will help keep you comfortable. I would like to mention, however, that if you have had new or multiple sexual partners and are experiencing symptoms comparable to those that one would have with a yeast infection you should go see a doctor right away. Or, if you try the over the counter treatmeents without success you should go see a doctor ASAP. Yeast infections often have the same symptoms as some STDs and only your doc. can tell the difference.

Answer #13

ok from reading these comments I ithink I might have a yeast infection im not sure. for 3 days now I have experienced vigina itch and kinda white reddish discharge comming out of me, very disgusting. this is really strange because I have never had anything like this before. I dont feel burns or anything like that just itching.

Another thing, everytime I drink something I have to go and wee in the next 5 minitues. its really annoying and uncomfortable for me. I cant go and see a doctor because my family and I use to live in south london and just moved here 2 months ago and all the Gps around here are full (so they say.I dont know what medication or cream to use for this. can some one please tell me

Answer #14

what you are discribing seems normal. If it you have itching and burning thats when you should worry. Discharge is different throughout your cycle because of hormone changes. It could be caused by too tight of clothing or It could be the type of soap you are using. You really shouldn’t wash down there with much soap. Warm water and genital massage should clean the area fine. You vagina has it’s own kind of “eco-system” and it can be upset easily. A yeast infection is caused when bad bacteria overwhelms the good bacteria in your vagina… many things including diet could cause this to happen. Try some over the counter treatments and if it doesn’t go away see a doctor.

Answer #15

you don’t need to be having sex to get a yeast infection {thrush} washing with soap or wearing to tight fitting clothes will cause the natural bacteria in the virgina to multiply this is what causes thrush you will need to use canestan cream for the itching and canestan tablets for the internal infection {treat you partner too if you are having sex} you can buy these over the counter or get prescription from your doctor

Answer #16

Answer #17

EAT SOME YOGURT IT HELP ALOT BUT MAKE SURE IT SAYS LIVE AND ACTIVE CULTURES PLUS IF YOU GO TO THE DOCTOR CAUSE I DID THE OTHER DAY CAUSE I THOUGHT I HAD A UTI BUT I DIDNT AND THE DOCTORS DIDNT NO BUT THEY GAVE ME ONE MEDICATION THAT ANTI YEAST AND YOU TAKE IT ONE TIME AND THATS IT OR YOU CAN GO TO STOP AND SHOP OR CVS AND GET MONASTIAN CREAM BUT THATS VERY ICKY AND GROSS

Answer #18

As a side note, I remember my first (and thankfully, only) yeast infection. The most notable thing about it was the consistency. It was lumpy. People say cottage cheese, I found it to be more like cream of wheat. Ew, GROSS!!! I will never eat that stuff again!

Answer #19

So does the monistat clear the yeast infection for both men and women?

Answer #20

You probably have a yeast infection, use Monistat 1, you can buy the one day treatment or the 3 day, both are very good. You can find it at Wal-Mart for $16 or $17 dollars. Usually found on the tampon, Always section of the store. Hope this helps!
