i think i may have a yeast infection but i'm not sure, help!
i dont know very much about this sort of thing, but maybe a week ago i noticed itchyness and irritation in my vagina. it sometimes hurts when i use the bathroom and theres sometimes swelling too. i am sexually active with my boyfriend so it frightened me, what if this was happening becuase maybe i caught something? so i asked my friend about it and she said it was most likely a yeast infection. so i bought this 7 day yeast infection creme to use. i've used it once so far, but i just did some research and now i think this may not be a yeast infection because the symptoms do NOT include a foul smell, but includes thick or cottage cheese-like discharge. i notice a wierd smell when i use the restroom, but i definetly have no sign of thick or cottage cheese-like discharge ... i'm so confused. idk if this could be a sign of an std, or what. i read a little bit about something called BV, i think i might possibly have this. if i do have BV, how can i know for sure? and how can i treat it?
advise is VERY much appreciated!
