Gynecology

Yeast infection

08/22/2008

Question:

I have never had one before. The day after my period stoped I got an itching, sore, swollen, and white vaginal discharge. It looks similar to the stuff that come out of teenage pimples. Like thousands of pimples have been poped. I am a vigern so it is not a STD. Could this be a yeast infection?

Answer:

It sounds very much like a yeast infection. It usually is a thick, curdled cheese like texture that is odorless, but has significant itching and irritation.
