How do you know if you have a yeast infection? Is there a lot of itching??? Pain?? last time i had one i was pregnant and my dr told me. SO i am just trying to rule things out.. I am in a monogamous relationship so the STD chance is nil..

  • There is alot of itching and you will have a cottage cheese like discharge Not to be gross but get a mirror and you might be able to see the discharge plus you will be kinda red and swollen

  • that is true buy u can also have just a heavy yellowish discharge. yeast aldo has a sweet smell to it. bacterial infections smell just awful. u need an md to check it out and prescribe the correct medication. if u have alot of swelling u can have yeast and vaginosis also. that means u have other bacteria that can cause the problem. sometimes your partner needs to b treated also. so, have it checked. the longer u wait the worse it will get and the harder it is to clear up. gl
