Mrs Myrna Monday: How do I know if I have a Yeast Infection?

Mrs. Myrna Mondays:
Where we answer all of the questions you have about your Lady Parts

Dear Mrs Myrna,
How do I know if I have a yeast infection?
Dear Unsure,
Let me see if I can de-code this mystery for you.

Here are some of the most common symptoms you see with a Yeast infection. You may have all or just a few:
  • Extreme itchiness in and around the Vagina
  • A thick, white clumpy discharge that does not have a bad smell
  • Burning, redness and swelling of the Vulva
  • Pain when urinating
  • Pain during intercourse

To sup it all up:
If the discharge is not white, then what you have is not a yeast infection and should see a doctor. If your discharge is white, clumpy, smells like baking bread and causes some serious itching and burning you most certainly have a yeast infection.

So now what do you do?
Let me just put it out there now to save you a lot of grief: The over the counter stuff will take the itch you already have and triple it. Good luck going to bed with all of that going on.
My recommendation would be to buy this soap:
Kick it to Your Yeast Infection!

It was formulated with the help of a naturopathic doctor that is one of the consults for the Mrs Myrna column. It treats the yeast infection very effectively but isn't something that makes a mess in your panties, makes the itch worse and you can use it any time you like: not just before bed. If you suffer from chronic yeast infections you can use it as a preventative method. We have gotten some rave reviews for this stuff, so all of us here at Mrs Myrna promise this stuff will do the trick and keep you comfortable all at the same time.
