  • the dr will test for one. y would u reschedule. The yeast infection kit tells u to see a dr if u think you have one, if its ur 1st or if u keep getting them.. It itches, may smell and has cottage cheese looking discharge

  • I always know I have one if it itches and burns. It is terrible. You cannot get comfortable, and they get worse. Still go to the doc, they can give you a prescription for it. GL, hope it works out.
