    Yeast infections usually entail being itchy and you will usually notice a white somewhat chunky discharge vaginally. Kind of like cottage cheese but a bit different…sorry to be to graphic guys!

    What is a vaginal yeast infection?
    Yeast is a fungus that normally lives in the vagina in small numbers. A vaginal yeast infection means that too many yeast cells are growing in the vagina . These infections are very common. Although they can bother you a lot, they are not usually serious. And treatment is simple.
    What causes a vaginal yeast infection?
    Most yeast infections are caused by a type of yeast called Candida albicans.
    A healthy vagina has many bacteria and a small number of yeast cells. The most common bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus, help keep other organisms-like the yeast-under control.
    When something happens to change the balance of these organisms, yeast can grow too much and cause symptoms. Taking antibiotics sometimes causes this imbalance. The high estrogen levels caused by pregnancy or hormone replacement therapy can also cause it. So can certain health problems, like diabetes or HIV infection.
    A yeast infection causes itching or soreness in the vagina and sometimes causes pain or burning when you urinate or have sex. Some women also have a thick, clumpy, white discharge that has no odor and looks a little like cottage cheese.
    These symptoms are more likely to occur during the week before your menstrual period.
