    •A vaginal yeast infection is irritation of the vagina and the area around it called the vulva (vul-vuh). Yeast is a type of fungus. Yeast infections are caused by overgrowth of the fungus Candida albicans. Small amounts of yeast are always in the vagina. But when too much yeast grows, you can get an infection.
    Yeast infections are very common. About 75 percent of women have one during their lives. And almost half of women have two or more vaginal yeast infections.
    The most common symptom of a yeast infection is extreme itchiness in and around the vagina. Other symptoms include:•burning, redness, and swelling of the vagina and the vulva •pain when passing urine •pain during sex •soreness•a thick, white vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese and does not have a bad smell •a rash on the vagina. Should I call my doctor if I think I have a yeast infection? Yes, you need to see your doctor to find out for sure if you have a yeast infection. The signs of a yeast infection are much like those of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like Chlamydia (KLUH-mid-ee-uh) and gonorrhea (gahn-uh-REE-uh). So, it’s hard to be sure you have a yeast infection and not something more serious. How is a vaginal yeast infection diagnosed? Your doctor will do a pelvic exam to look for swelling and discharge. Your doctor may also use a swab to take a fluid sample from your vagina. A quick look with a microscope or a lab test will show if yeast is causing the problem. Why did I get a yeast infection? Many things can raise your risk of a vaginal yeast infection, such as: •stress •lack of sleep •illness •poor eating habits, including eating extreme amounts of sugary foods •pregnancy •having your period •taking certain medicines, including birth control pills, antibiotics, and steroids •diseases such as poorly controlled diabetes and HIV/AIDS •hormonal changes during your periods. Can I get a yeast infection from having sex? Yes, but it is rare. Most often, women don’t get yeast infections from sex. The most common cause is a weak immune system. How are yeast infections treated? Yeast infections can be cured with antifungal medicines that come as: •creams•tablets •ointments or suppositories that are inserted into the vagina. These products can be bought over the counter at the drug store or grocery store. Your doctor can also prescribe you a single dose of oral fluconazole (floo-con-uh-zohl). But do not use this drug if you are pregnant.
    Infections that don’t respond to these medicines are starting to be more common. Using antifungal medicines when you don’t really have a yeast infection can raise your risk of getting a hard-to-treat infection in the future.
    Is it safe to use over-the-counter medicines for yeast infections? Yes, but always talk with your doctor before treating yourself for a vaginal yeast infection if you: •are pregnant •have never been diagnosed with a yeast infection
    •keep getting yeast infections. Studies show that two-thirds of women who buy these products don’t really have a yeast infection. Using these medicines the wrong way may lead to a hard-to-treat infection. Plus, treating yourself for a yeast infection when you really have something else may worsen the problem. Certain STIs that go untreated can cause cancer, infertility, pregnancy problems, and other health problems. If you decide to use these over-the-counter medicines, read and follow the directions carefully. Some creams and inserts may weaken condoms and diaphragms. If I have a yeast infection, does my sexual partner need to be treated? Yeast infections are not STIs, and health experts don’t know for sure if they are transmitted sexually. About 12 to 15 percent of men get an itchy rash on the penis if they have unprotected sex with an infected woman. If this happens to your partner, he should see a doctor. Men who haven’t been circumcised are at higher risk. Lesbians may be at risk for spreading yeast infections to their partner(s). If your female partner has any symptoms, she should also be tested and treated. How can I avoid getting another yeast infection? To help prevent vaginal yeast infections, you can:•avoid douches •avoid scented hygiene products like bubble bath, sprays, pads, and tampons •change tampons and pads often during your period •avoid tight underwear or clothes made of synthetic fibers •wear cotton underwear and pantyhose with a cotton crotch •change out of wet swimsuits and exercise clothes as soon as you can •avoid hot tubs and very hot baths. If you keep getting yeast infections, be sure and talk with your doctor.
    What should I do if I get repeat yeast infections? Call your doctor. About 5 percent of women get four or more vaginal yeast infections in 1 year. This is called recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC). RVVC is more common in women with diabetes or weak immune systems. Doctors most often treat this problem with antifungal medicine for up to 6 months.

    NO, You should NEVER self-diagnose yourself. It is unsafe to take something that you weren’t prescribed to take. If you think crabs is the only and/or worst form of STD to worry about, you obviously need to visit your doctor. The fact that you’re sleeping around without any prior proper education of risks is asinine.

    As for the itching, sometimes I itch a little prior to a period or right after. I’m assuming by “uncomfortably itchy” you mean severe itching. You should especially get it checked if it is severe.

    some of the symptoms of yeast infection are the same as that of bacterial vaginosis. In case of vaginosis you will experience vaginal discharge which is whitish grey in color with ithcing, fishy odor and burning sensation. yeast infection symptoms include vaginal itching, discharge which is thick and white in color alongwith burning sensation.

    Hence it is best to get your infection identified before undergoing any kind of treatment
