Are these the same symptoms you had during your previous YI? It sounds like it could definitely be a YI to me. Try the Monistat but still go to the doctor to be sure. I always ask my doc for Diflucan when I have a YI and that helps to clear it up.

SammiCoJo:  my suggestion is to go to the doctor whenever anything “abnormal” occurs more than once. so for me, if originally I thought it was sweat irritation I would have washed well and wore cotton panties and if it still happened, at that point I would go to the doctor.

SammiCoJo:  I never get the cottage cheese discharge with YIs, just the itching. I used to use over-the-counter stuff, but last time I say my PCD and she gave me a prescription – only one pill and it was gone!

Do you normally have other symptoms with YI? Not everyone gets the cottage cheese discharge, I’ve never had it. I just get itching and redness.

trich can be mistaken for a YI.
It sounds like a YI. I agree with the suggestion for Diflucan. Also, ask your dr if he/she can recommend something for you to have at home to keep these at bay such as a probiotic 🙂 & if you’ve had sex without contraceptives [condoms], suggest that your partner go for a check-up as well to make sure they’re clear. You don’t want it to be transferred to you again if they’re unaware that they have a YI. Sharing isn’t always caring.

Ugh the itching is the worst! It sounds like a YI to me. I get them often, no discharge, and the last time, I was so desperate, I used an older but not expired cream medication from the last visit while waiting to see the OBGYN. When I saw the OBGYN, she was new to me and she said I shouldn’t have used the cream before seeing her because she wanted to test me to see if it actually was a YI. So maybe hold off on the Monistat until you see your doctor? I totally get not wanting to wait because it is soooo extremely uncomfortable!! I don’t think it will last forever, but it always seems that way, doesn’t it?! Damp washcloths help me when I’m not able to use a cream or pill :-/

First off don’t have sex until this is cleared up as men can get YI from their partners.

Sounds like a YI to me. Does it burn when you pee?

They sell OTC YI tests. I know stuff like that isn’t always the most reliable, and I definitely wouldn’t substitute it for a doctor’s advice, but it can at least help you rule out a bacterial infection. I’d try that before getting Monistat.

I was getting them a couple years ago back-to-back. It’s miserable. After about the third one in six months, I finally went to a doctor. A prescription is definitely the way to go! Clears it up super fast and you’re not constantly leaking those awful cremes (even the little ovule thingers dissolve and seep out).

SammiCoJo:  They now sell Diflucan over the counter ( atleast they do in canada at shopper drugmart so I would assume they do in the US). Sounds like a YI to me.

YI don’t just occur in the vagina.  You could have one externally.
