First only a doctor can tell you for sure if you have a yeast infection or not.
There are common signs but dont always count on them because sometimes you dont get the signs and you can still have a yeast infection.
White cottage cheese looking discharge,a funny smell(like bread being made),itchy,red or burning feeling,or pain.
I had a yeast infection last year that the only sign I had was I was in severe pain. There was no other sign. I went to my doctor and low and behold it was a yeast infection.
Some meds can cause them such as antibiotics. It varies from person to person on if they get the often or not. No it doesnt mean a person who gets them alot is dirty.
I didnt have my first yeast infection until my first pregnancy..I was 21 at that time. I just had my second one last year and I am 28 now.
If you think you have one then go see your doctor to make sure. Dont try treating it until after you ahve seen your doctor. Sometimes what seems like a yeast infection could be something else all together.
You can also do a search on like google.com and get info that way.
