I have a vaginal odor with a whitish discharge can this be chymedia, or is this another yeast infection due to i have itching and soreness?
The three most common causes of vaginal discharge are yeast (candida), trichomonas, and bacterial vaginosis. Yeast infections are often itchy and not very malodorous. However it is generally best for you to see your physician and have an examination done. Your doctor can take a specimen and look under the microscope to determine the exact cause. The symptoms alone are not usually precise enough to make a diagnosis.
