Hi, Lita, and let me see if I can help with the infection part of your question.

From what you describe, it sure could be. But most yeast infections do have more symptoms -- for instance, the burning or itching that you don't have, or painful urination or painful intercourse.

Have you been on any antibiotics lately? That's one thing that can increase your chances of having a yeast infection. Here are some others:

◦Situations that can cause hormonal changes, such as:
Birth control pills
Pregnancy
Menopause
◦Diabetes , especially when blood sugar is not well controlled
◦A compromised immune system, such as with HIV infection
◦Perfumed feminine hygiene sprays, deodorant tampons, or bubble bath
◦Tight jeans, synthetic underwear, or a wet swimsuit
◦Douching

Did your discharge look clumpy like cottage cheese? Or was it smoother, and more cloudy? If it's more like cottage cheese, the chances increase that it's a yeast infection. If it's more like the second, it's probably more of a normal discharge (we often can have cloudy/white discharges from the cervix before they turn clear and egg-white-like, which signals ovulation).

Here's our EmpowHer page on yeast infections. It also talks about treatment:

It shouldn't affect your ability to try to conceive, but if it's a yeast infection you do want to treat it. Here's some information on that:

Good luck to you, and be sure to come tell us when you have good news!!
