  • the white discharge does suggest yeast infection, I had one and wouldnt have known it if it wasnt for the white stuff. an otc vaginal infection actually did work. you could go to the dr and find out for sure, because I cant explain the smell. If you want cheap try the suppositories from the store and see if that works.

  • I do NOT recommend using a yeast infection medication you bought from the store if you're not POSITIVE that you have a yeast infection. I did that when I was in college and ended up so swollen and irritated down there that I could get out of bed for a day and a half. NOT. FUN.

    You should definitely go to the doctor.

  • Try the over the counter 3 day yeast infection medicine. See if it works.

  • Why not get one of the yeast kits that tells you if you have an infection or not? They have some at home test now. And if it isn't that then don't do the treatments. Also if it isn't go to the dr. :)

  • Call your Dr and ask about Diflucan. It works well.

  • If it is a yeast, I am with brandonsmom...Diflucan is much better than that messy crap in the store. One pink pill and no more yeast!
