For the past six months, I have been
experiencing intense itching and burning “down there." I also
have a white, thick discharge recently. What is wrong? Could this be
a yeast infection?
Hate to break it to ya, babe, but
intense itching and burning as well as white, cottage cheese-like
discharge are the big symptoms of a yeast infection You might also
experience redness and swelling around your vagina and vulva as well
as pain while you pee. Not all symptoms have to be present, but you
should definitely head to your doctor for a professional diagnosis
Chances are your doc will need to do a
pelvic exam to make sure you have a yeast infection, and will
probably take a fluid sample. Once he (or she) knows for sure that a
yeast infection is the culprit, you’ll be put on antifungal meds to
clear it up. A yeast infection isn’t a big deal and it’s
incredibly common, so you’ve got nothing to be embarrassed about.
You just need to get it taken care of!
