Yeast Infections with pain
 
Hi ya'll,
I noticed a few days ago a light colored brown discharge.I now have a Yeast Infection with minimal itching.I do have a slight crampy feeling in my lower Abdomen.

Ive had YI before but never had the dull feeling,only itching..

What could be going on here?Im not on my period,I dont have an STD.

The only way to know for sure what is going on is to see the doc and get tested to see what kind of infection you really do have. Remember many infections have similar symptoms so you cannot self diagnose most infections.

Hey Thumper, yup...go to the doctor. There they can do a bacterial culture on you and test what's going on. Lots of times women wipe the wrong way and get little bits of fecal matter in the vaginal area - - which in turn causes a bad infection. My doctor has me on Acidophilus supplements and every once and a while I take warm sit baths with NO soap to restore the "good bacteria" down there. I hope this helps you. Best of luck and go to the doctor. Oh by the way, I haven't had a YI in like 8 months! Hooray! :bouncing:
